What to Wear in 40 Degrees

Well Bev, New York is having an oddly mild winter. Aside from a few days here and there, the temperature hasn't dipped below 40s which I'm perfectly okay with because I've finally conquered the 40's! Solution? Wear two jackets!

Just mugging some people and giving dirty looks. Typical Sunday.

Cute Things I Wore Only My Coworkers Saw

 My black bag with a scarf I got from Paah-ree.
 Glittered out cons.
 Umar's timex! I LOVE THIS WATCH! A LOT!
 Plaid and leopard faux the same time! Proof below:
Bevelyn, things got real wild today. So wild that i just had to take some headless shots and share with you.

A new day, a new outfit

Photos by my mom
Well bobo, note the fake glasses in the last photo here. I was going to put them on, but I didn't have the heart to knowing that I would have very real contacts underneath these fake glasses.

Five Things I'm Fake Shopping Right Now

Because I have a shopping disease but also like having money in my bank account, sometimes I do this thing called "fake shopping." This can be practiced in real life or virtual life. In real life, you walk around the store, admire the pretty things on hangers, grab the few that you really really love and as you're heading towards the cash register, DROP THEM AND RUN! Similarly, in fake online shopping, you fill your cart up with everything you want and then CLICK OUT ASAP. You basically distract your brain by saying "yeah, yeah lets buy this, it's great" and then go like "just kidding!" and run. Sometimes it works, (alot of)sometimes it doesn't.

Anyway, these are some of the things I'm fake buying right now:
My heart is probably leopard printed. I already own (multiple) leopard print shoes but this one pair from Madewell could only improve my quality of life.

I LOVE midi skirts and I've had this one in my etsy cart for about two months now.
If I had hundreds of dollars to spend on jewelry, I'd buy this amazing Dannijo necklace. Right now I'm praying someone will send this design to China and have Forever 21 manufacture and sell it for $15.95.

Also, FLOWER JEANS??? Yes please!!!! The ones below (and there's a white version) are from Anthro/Citizen of Humanity but I'm waiting for them to trickle down to F21, Zaras etc. 

Lastly, I've been wanting one of these maxi skirts from American Apparel since last spring but I realized they're too damn long for comment. 

Colors make me a more interesting person. Probably.

So Bobo I have been trying to mix it up with colors. But I have also been extremely lazy lately. Solution? Bright blue nail polish! I like it. It makes me look more interesting than I really am.

This look was inspired (copied) from you.

Versailles was probably one of my favorite places to visit in Paris. It was utterly larger than life and fantastical in every way. I felt like I was walking around a movie set except it was real.

 Cathedral in the Palace.
 I like this picture because it features my whiteboy twin. And his sister.
 The Room of Mirrors: this is where they had parties. It has seventeen large windows overlooking the gardens and across from the windows in the room, there are large mirrors to reflect the light and basically make the room as grand as possible. P.I.M.P!

 Learning some knowledge that I promptly forgot.

Later we went to the Lourve and I was thrilled to recognize a painting I'd studied/taught while I was at Berkeley: the Odalisque. Yes, I felt very smart, it was great. Note my mouth is genuinely opened in surprise.

Paris in My Closet

Paris was the shit, literally and figuratively. Umar and I renamed our street Le Grand Poopoo one night (this was only one of the many <<terrible>> french related jokes we came up with. I'll leave the rest for ones imagination)

Here are some pictures taken by my partner in crime.

 Walking towards the Eiffel Tower on the first night
 Those polka dot socks make everything better in my life
 Apparently, in France, people read books in French! Who knew...
 My nails taking a subway ride

I have some more juicy pictures to come shortly.

Big shoes to fill

 Some of my favorite pictures of my elegantly chic mom when she was my age (mid twenties). These photos were sitting in the attic of my family's house in Tokyo, just waiting to be stolen by me. I hope to live up to even half of her effortless swagger someday.

I'm in the Desert, son!

Dress by Tatiana. She made the wings and put them on this vintage dress from an estate sell. Pretty genius.

Pink bike with a basket. So much fun.

Bobo you need to come to the desert next time you are on this coast. It was a perfect 75 degrees. Everyday. I went swimming at night. Nuff said. But don't go to any casinos in Palm Springs, it seems like the place to go if you want to give up on life.

So, lessons so far of 2012: watch out for the poop in Paris and don't ever go to a casino in Palm Springs (unless you gave up on life).

Ok Bobo, go! Show me those Parisian teats.
