viking princess



Back in November msdressy.com contacted me to become a fashion blogger partner for their website!
I received the dress that I ordered on Chirstmas Eve unexpectedly!

the dress is very glamorous and elegant. it is beautifully made and it was surprising that it fit me perfectly! (this means that their custom ordered dresses is justified by the amount of time it took to make the dress)
the jewels in the front are hand-sewn (yet again) perfectly!
the draping of the dress is divine!

Happy New year to everyone! 2013 is going to be FAB!

Why the title???

portrait

I finished this self-portrait last week, however I still feel the need to do something for the background. anyway, my college applications are almost done, Thanksgiving is coming up, I still need to do a term paper...and I still have a continuous homework load piling up. however, pretty soon, I know I will be able to blog some more!
I have an exciting collaboration coming up!

klimt obsession


going  back to previous blog posts, you might have noticed my obsession with artworks from Gustav Klimt! i cannot deny how much influence he imposed on me when I went to the Klimt exhibit at the Getty museum in LA. he's definitely one of my favorite artists.
and so, here's my artwork influenced greatly by Klimt. it's a Filipino woman in a traditional filipino dress, done in Klimt's style~

Senior in highschool


well my life has been/ is still being bombarded by essays...school essays, scholarship essays, college application essays, autobiography, etc...so you can imagine the piling words in my head right now. Also, my life right now revolves around college applications. *sigh

* i am looking forward for 2013 already. not only will the college apps be done. but also I'm going to a Lady Gaga concert as a Christmas and birthday gift from my oldest sister!

extremely busy is an understatement of what has been the 2 months of my senior year. i feel so disconnected with everything! ugh. well here's a quick update of what I have been working on in my studio art class.



i think it's pretty much done, i just have to change some tones and colors on the bottom part of the painting...

feel free to put critiques and suggestions!

welcome fall

extremely busy in school...working on my current drawing, struggling over calculus, studying for SAT, and trying to educate myself on United States current events (the election). This was a long week. and there are more of these long weeks to come. and it's fashion week! (going to a fashion show during Fashion Week--Alexander McQueen show preferably-- is in my bucket list.

just a quick update from me~

Leather Satchel


remember back then when i showed you my leather satchel design?
well, my satchel design became a REAL satchel, thanks to Leather Satchel Co.
the satchel is like a girl's DREAM come TRUE! It's customized and so I am pretty sure that right now, I am the only one, THE ONLY ONE, that has this bag! yayyy!
Review of Leather Satchel Co. after the break....

OUTFIT: Don't stop me now...


...i'm having such a good time, i'm having a ball, don't stop me now, if you wanna have a good time, just give me a call! don't stop me now!
i'm a rocket ship on my way to mars on collision course,i'm a satellite i'm out of control...
ok. singing in my blog posts is done for now. anyone recognize the song???

of course it's Don't Stop Me Now by QUEEN!!
anyway, my outfit is from one of those days when you just want to crawl in your jeans and stay in bed. never mind, i never really had those days. ok. this outfit is just for those days when you can't think of anything to wear so you just try to pile on as much sparkles as possible. sparkly shoes+ sequined shirt.
P.S. i'm finallly getting how to make all my sub-pictures the same width! yay.

Der Kuss

so ummm... blackmilk.
that's all i have to say.

oh gosh never mind, i have a lot to say. i can't even express how amazed/obsessed i am with Klimt and blackmilk. Their galaxy leggings, as everyone knows, is extremely - i mean EXTREMELY- popular, but these leggings with Gustav Klimt's The Kiss printed on it is just cray cray! i want it! it will complete me (as well as how miu miu glitter booties will complete my life--and how leather satchels complete me too--what can i say, I'm a hedonist.)
first saw the amazingness of these leggings on Sasha from Lookbook. here's her blog.

CAMBRIDGE SATCHEL!



ok, if you know me, you know i have been obsessed with Cambridge satchels, or just structured-leather satchels over all. it has been 1 year and a half of just pure lust and obsession with these bags.
i have entered soooo many giveaways for it, since i cannot afford it!
And, maybe i'm just cheesy, this bag came to me because we are destined to be together!!!

Thanks ReQoop! it was soooo unexpected that they chose my picture as the winner of the colorspotting giveaway they had back in May!
the color is so classy, red was my first pick when they asked me to choose the color! and you can  definitely see my biggest smile since I was literally beaming when i opened the package!

OUTFIT: i walk alone



for some reason "I walk alone" by Green Day started playing in my head when I was editing these pictures, so my subconscious is telling me that it will be an appropriate title for this outfit.

i have been in love with dresses paired with some awesome Converse sneakers, and so I tried it out, and this is my outfit! yay! part of the reason for wearing this is  because it's so easy to put on, especially during those times when your family decides to go to church at 7:30 in the morning!

Olympia Le Tan

Book clutches? i mean clutches designed as books? or if you do a DIY, books made into clutches(no no no, i love books too much to do that)

well i was browsing the net-a-porter F/W 2012 lookbook. and my older sister has been obsessed with these book clutches, that she actually wants to destroy some precious books for a clutch! nooooo.

so here are the clutches that i'm talking about:

personally i love these milk carton bags better :)
some brands, like Kate Spade, has adopted their own book clutches  ...i really like the Olympia Le Tan ones because they are embroidered! super chic and very creative. however, as usual it comes with a PRICE TAG. :(

BIKE SERIES: Dreams do come TRUE


previous story here
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^


well c,ontinuing on with my story, i confided with my best friend (one of my bestfriends ;) the internet!

I set up a name for my mission! OPERATION: LOVE FOR A BIKE...i like straightforward titles
this is me in real life (just sitting on the computer searching away)...the picture below was my experience!
First day: i emailed 5 sites....after a week, i didn't get any kind of response. but I didnt give up!
after a week, I emailed 10 more bicycle websites, seeking for an opportunity to help my parents this senior year and the next coming years of being in college!
the next day, i received an email! i was really scared to open the email...
first one to respond, and they were nice! yay! i got some tips on buying or even possibly making my own bike (but i am definitely not ready to become a mechanic!)
4 DAYS AFTER THE FIRST RESPONSE: i cannot believe it! i received a miracle i talked to a really nice and amazing ANT, and he was interested in helping me! i was already thankful for him to reply to me! this was the kindest thing ever!!
I returned correspondences with ANT His bikes are definitely the epitome of the romance and art of bike transportation!

I am grateful to share this incredible experience to the world!!!!! an i am excited to create and share new experiences with my future bike! thank you soooo much!
First of all, I asked Mr. Google, the caterpillar, and he was very helpful! i encountered different flowers and creatures (WEBSITES) and talked to them (E-mailed them). And finally i exchanged correspondence with ANT

OUTFIT: left out


well this outfit was from the time i was in LA....wayyyy back. we went to the Griffith observatory, which was cool, but not really my favorite... it did interest me BUT it wasn't exciting. that's just my opinion since i absolutely love looking at art pieces/haute couture, so i guess it wasnt the right place for me.

so far school is going well. but really, not as fun as I want it to be.

Shirt/dress: Rogan for target
jeans: from garage sale! whohoo!
shoes: Converse
bag: Marni x H&M c/o A.fasione

blog: last day

so this will be the last day of my summer vacation... T___T
i will go to school, and go on with my usual life.  this summer was actually exceptional and was a LOT of fun.
there were a lot of 1st times for me. 1st time in the a California Beach--in the summer, to see celebrities- Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell!, to see haute couture in real life, to have a sister move away, to go to the Japanese tea garden, to go to an art museum, the Getty museum, to see precious paintings in real life,  to have one of my most coveted bags, etc.

here's a compilation of pictures depicting my summer vacation.

p.s. summer vacation went by sooooo fast!
