Skinny Khaki and My Favourite Cap

Hey y'all! Hope you're all doing well! 
So, I've made one of my new year resolutions to post more on my blog, and also adding to that, to post at least once a week. With that said, here's my weekly post! 
My family and I were supposed to go down the hill (people up here in the high desert call going down to bigger urbanized cities such as L.A., Diamond Bar... etc anywhere but cities in the high desert as going "down the hill" because technically, we do live on a hill. Just a huge one. Think mountain-like.) but as change of plans, we couldn't make the trip. So, instead, I decided to just hang around the house, and watched a movie with my dad. 
In this outfit, I'm wearing my pleather motorcylce jacket, black knitt sweater, two layered necklaces, Boston Red Sox cap, khaki skinnies, and ivory flats that I found in a big shoe box in the garage. 
This is a really neutral outfit, great for any occassion, I guess. Esepecially for a "Romantic Date". Haha, I kid I kid, I joke.

New, from December moving onto January 2013

I recently got glasses; need to start wearing glasses for when taking notes in class and when I drive... Meh.
New phone case. And about time! My other one, which was just a clear hard-rubber case with white borders was getting so dirty and impossible to clean... This blue one was like $26... Why are phone cases so expensive?
Rose Salve lip balm for like $5 from Bath and Body Works. 
And finally, this cute Tony Moly peach lip balm from Korea! Gotta love dem connections.

Leather and Baroque

Well, long time no see again!
First semester seriously flew by like a pre-teen flipping through a Seventeen magazine... I don't know, something like that, something very swift. Quite pleased with my final grades for the semester, just hope that I can keep it up until May..! Graduation date is on May 30th, and Prom is sometime in April. Ohoho. 
Well moving onto my OOTD, just decided to kick it in my cool baroque printed pants and some leather and pleather. 
I've had this pleather jacket for over 3 years now, and still going strong! It's a definite staple in my closet and goes in my top ten must's for fall/winter wear. Luckily it's not super duper freezing out in the afternoon so this jacket does just the job in keeping me decently warm. 
The pants are from Marshall's. Yes. Marshall's. The clothing store that you always drive by, but never have actually gone into. If you haven't been in Marshall's before, I highly recommend it! You will never know what nice things you could run into. Unless you try. 
As for my boots, these babies are pretty new to the family. I got them around three weeks ago from Urban Outfitters and I've loved them ever since. They didn't look as appealing online, but I really wanted some classic black chelsea's so I just went with them, and so glad I did. 
Hope everyone had a productive/safe/fun winter break, or just the past two weeks! 
I really think I'm going to make a new year's resolution to make more POSTS! I keep on having these huge time gaps between all my posts.... le sigh.

Feels Like Autumn

Today really does feel like nice autumn weather. I'm LOVING it. Although I get cold really easily and when I am cold, I can't bear it, I'm really excited that the autumn season is finally here! To me, autumn means anoraks, dark skinnies, boots, warm fuzzy socks, scarves, beanies, and darker nail polish colors- ch'yeaaah. Oh, and not to mention, college applications, college selections, and the never ending feeling of SATs and ACTs........... Sorry if that made you feel not as good as you were at the beginning of this post. 

 Happy Fall! 

Wearing: Forever 21 anorak, American Apparel stripped crop tee, American Apparel burghundy scarf, American Apparel high waisted black skinnies, Steve Madden half-spiked loafers.
Lips: Revlon Wine With Everything

Something Different

Bueno~ So, today I'm going to post something a little different than my usual shstuff. Ever since my senior year of high school started earlier in August, I'm taking AP 2-D Studio Art class as my elective. I was so excited to find out that for this course, you can most definitely incorporate or revolve your art work around photography. There are two types of assignments that I'm supposed to have completed by the end of the school year; Breadth and Concentration. Breadth is just a general assignment category where my pieces can vary from different styles of photography, or whatever I'm going to use to make art. Concentration is the assignment category where I had to chose a specific theme for my photos/art pieces, and for my theme I chose Terrestrial Elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water). Also, by the end of the year I have to have 12 art pieces from each category completed and from then on, I'm going to have to select 5 of my best pieces for the AP 2-D test/project for the AP board.
At first I thought my theme would be a really boring and un-creatively fun one, but turns out that it isn't as easy as I thought it would be! And it is quite fun! I get a lot of support from friends and family and it's great~ So, I just wanted to share some of the works that I have submitted to my teacher so far! Hope you enjoy.

Pleats In The Breeze

Gooood day, y'all. It's such a beautiful day to just kick back and hang out outside. It was a kind of windy out too, so it's not just deadbeat heat in sun city. It can get pretty hot up here in the high desert of SoCal, and since it is summer, I just wore really light-weight and hassle-free clothing. When in doubt, opt for chiffon- one of the most versatile things ever. I chose my chiffon tank top and my pleated mid-length skirt from American Apparel. This is one of the purchases I got from the American Apparel factory flea market in mid June. So glad I got it; it's such a soft and comfy skirt. For other items I wore, I just slipped into my Steve Madden gladiators, Steve Madden sunnies, my trusty gold ear cuff, and some gold rings from ASOS.

The Ombre seems to have more of the "faded" look now, FINALLY. Took over a month to get to this point, and the colors still look a bit choppy. Oh well. At this point I really don't even care anymore, haha. But I'm glad I got the Ombre done. Yolo.
