Recently I had the privilege of working on a fashion show during the New York Fashion Week.  Best part about working on this show was that I got to meet some pretty handsome men during the casting and the show.  One in particular really stood out for me and his name was Zhao Lei.  I’m fairly certain I literally “gasped” when he walked in the room.

Recently stumbled upon this website called BHLDN. It carries ton of really unique wedding items such as gowns, dresses, shoes, accessories, and etc.  But I love the fact that everything seems really modern, contemporary, and so incredibly chic.

As I am getting older, I am realizing more and more how much I haven’t taken care of myself over the years and of course, it’s showing on my face the most.  So recently I went thru a phase where I wanted to put make up on better and actually try to look better for myself and of course everyone who will have to interact with me on daily basis.  Then I randomly landed on one of Jennifer’s youtube tutorials.

My newest purchase from Gilt today.  At this rate, I WILL need to get a job.  And apparently I LOVE shoes more than Claudia.  Although I didn’t steal them from her, and we are on the oppt coasts, we will be wearing the same shoes on some days.   I can’t wait to wear them.  Perfect for NYC Fall!

seriously, how cute are these rings?

This shoot was from couple of years back.  But I still love it whenever I see it.

Covert Affairs is another show on USA that John and I try to watch on regular basis.  Piper Perabo plays a mildly jaded and intense character named agent Annie Walker.  I’ve always liked Piper since Coyote Ugly.  However there are moments when I get super annoyed watching this show.

I just heard on Today’s show that Suri Cruise has wardrobe that’s estimated at 3.6 million dollars.  What in the world???  And Katie Homes admitted that Suri chose her clothes since she was 1.5 years old.  Do they even talk at that age?  I don’t know, isn’t this just too much?  I mean she’s cute and all but is this just ridiculous.

Mark + James – Square Sequin Scoop Back shift dress (Org $495… Now $199) – looking for a dress to wear for a tea party.  This might’ve been over the top but I think I would have done it anyway.

Bit out of my price range but just looking at this Chloe dress makes me feel sophisticated and classy.  Really adore this dress.

Give me the oppty to wear this Kate Spade shoes.  I will wear it!

Elite Leather – Whitby Sofa  (Org $3720… Now $1375) – Gorgeous sofa.  If it wasn’t for our cats, I would LOVE this gorgeous sofa t be sitting in our living room.  It will go very well with the dark brown book cases that I have.

I think God is very wise for many different reasons.

Not only because I wear glasses, but as someone who appreciates cool and creative things in general, this is an awesome video.  LOVE it!

Mad Men is back and everything feels right with the world.  I enjoy this show because I feel as though it slows down my crazy world at least for an hour.  Of course Don Draper is probably one of the most fascinating characters on TV right now and he’s incredibly handsome, so it makes it even more interesting to watch.  I actually have a friend who has a pix of Don Draper as a wallpaper in her phone.   She shall remain anonymous.

On 20/20 this past Friday, they had a segment about fake Christian Louboutin shoes online.   I thought the piece was very informative and didn’t even realize that there were fake “shoes” but I guess it makes total sense.  Afterall, some Christian Louboutin shoes costs more than the purses that I carry around.

I totally ❤ bow ties and I found these on Etsy that are just to die for.  And I think I love these bow ties even more because these are for kids/babies. | continue reading |

Claudia was wearing these when we were in Seattle, and I secretly wanted to steal them and bring them back with me to NYC.  But figured our friendship means more to me than a pair of cute shoes so I had to stop myself.  John Varvatos + Chuck Taylors = can’t go wrong.

Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Shoes – Nubuck Sandal (Org $495… Now $149) – I really love the color combo. I think it’s a fantastic shoes. | continue reading |

Armand Diradourian –  50% cashmere pillows (Org $255… Now $124) – such simple and clean style.  love it. | continue reading |

Saw this wedding dress on Jcrew website today for less that $500.  It made me want to get married again and be skinny.

Curtis told me about this pix during lunch one day.  He was moved to share this pix with right when I was telling him how I wanted a room full of books.  From floor to ceiling.  Karl Largerfeld… Of course I wished I was him for many many many reasons.  But here’s one more reason why I wish I was him!

Simple, classy, and elegant clutch on Etsy.  Perfect for a bride. 🙂

hellooooo booyyyssss!

I blogged about Diggy’s blog while back and haven’t really been following since.  Couple of days ago, I’m pretty sure I spent couple of hours on his blog to make up for the lost time.  I am really dying to know if he’s really writing this stuff himself.  Maybe I should write to him.  What are the chances that he actually writes me back?  I’m pretty sure he lives close enough…. Hmmmm…..

I have been watching Ellen everyday this year.  Then today I came across these unbelievably gorgeous wedding pictures from her wedding.  Not only is she one of the funniest people on TV, she and I apparently have same taste.  I think if she had asked me to plan her wedding(which btw is very unfortunate she didn’t), I don’t think I would’ve changed anything about her wedding.  And let’s also focus on the fact that she had her wedding cake done by Sweet Lady Jane.  And believe you me, I’ve called this place the best bakery in the UNIVERSEEEEE…..

I am a HUGE J.Crew fan.  If I had the figure to look good in their clothes, I would totally be broke because I would spend all my money at that store.  So I guess I should be thankful that I am currently too big to look good in their clothes.  But as I am thinking about having kids, I am worried that I would go broke because I would spend all my money on buying kids clothes.  They have very clean, simple, classic and elegant clothes that I totally LOVE.  Sometimes when I see super cute kids clothes, I am soooo tempted to buy them.  I don’t have kids.  I don’t even have a baby.  I’m not even pregnant.  We’re not even planning on having kids.  Would that be weird if I started to collect cute kids’ clothes?

I love rings.  These seem super economical since the combination would be endless.  I ❤ that!

Okay I have 2 groups that I am really rooting for on the new show on NBC called “The Sing-Off“.  First is a group called Nota.  Nota is clearly the best group on this show without a doubt.  And the other group is called Maxx Factor.  I really want to see them do well on this show because they are clearly the underdog of the show.  I mean look at the way they are dressed on the show while the other groups are totally DECKED-OUT!~  It’s like the producers put them in these oufits just so that they could be made fun of or something.  What gives man?????

Anywho,  here’s a taste of what you may be missing if you’re not watching this show.  Here’s an awesome performance by Nota.  That’s right “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz! 

I remember seeing MUJI products at MOMA stores and always thought they were super cool.  Then recently, while visiting my friend Simon’s house in Chelsea area, I discovered the MUJI retail store.  Ohhhhhh Emmmm Gheeeeee!  I think I could’ve spent hours and hours there along with lots of $$$$$$. 

But I had some self-control and only bought some slippers to wear around the house for John and I.  I was rather proud of myself but I also discovered that there’s a store right in front of Port Authority.  This probably isn’t a good thing for me and my monthly budget….

Stella McCartney designed for Gap.  And I keep seeing this ad on my commute to work.  Things like this make me want to have kids.  It’s soooo freaking awesome.

Saw this Korean Vogue cover with Mr. Lee Byung Hun and Josh Hartnett.  Folks, it’s the freaking VOGUE!  It’s not a mom and pop newspaper being printed a HP printer.  It’s the VOGUE!!!!!  They don’t have ONE employee who speaks English well enough to tell them that they shouldn’t be printing, “Two of us Couples!”  SERIOUSLY!!!!  I know my English grammar isn’t my forte, but even I know that, that sounds beyond funny.  But this is VOGUE!  SERIOUSLY?????

But they do look pretty darn good in these photos….

I didn’t think I would have to write another Snuggies post but here I am writing another Snuggies post.  Snuggies for pet.  How far would these people go?  What will we see next?  Snuggies for our plants?  Snuggies for babies?  Snuggies for iPhones?  Seriously stop this madness!

Christian Louboutin shoes for a bride.  So simple and so perfectly executed, I am speechless.  It makes me want to have another wedding just so that I could wear these.

John and I usually don’t watch Big Brother. But the other nite, I was totally capitvated by the strange outfit that Julie Chen was wearing,  and that made us watch good 30 minutes of this show.  Seriously what was she thinking?  I thought she was married to some rich dude.  She couldn’t afford to get more fashionable thing to wear on a national TV than this Snuggies wannabe dress? C’mon!

This Alexander McQueen clutch made me think of all my single girl friends.  I feel like this is super fashionable and practical at the same time.  And in really bad situations, it could be used as a weapon…  You can’t beat that…

… topped off with a hat Goorin Bros

…good.  it’s a recycled leather jacket from dean

Turntable ring at a place called Plastique on Etsy.com.  There are bunch other accessories that I would LOVE to have if my budget had room for such things…

Found this super-duper cute shirt on Etsy.  I would totally wear it if my boobs were smaller.  I don’t know why but I think with such huge holes, my boob size would matter…..  Regardless, really cute shirt for the summer.

…dry and cool in Tretorn during the rainy season.

Okay so this is my THIRD blog entry regarding these hideous things.  I initially blogged about how ridiculous it was, then I blogged about how it invaded one of my favorite TV shows.  And here I am blogging about this aweful things one more time.

Just when I thought it wasn’t possible for these things to get any worse, I sat thru a commercial over this weekend that was promoting their new item.  Snuggies in “animal print” y’all.  That’s right!  I really wanted to find the commerical but I can’t find it online yet.  One of the funniest line in the commercial is “you asked us to make Snuggies more fashion… well here’s our solution”… The design is exactly the same, but now you could wear the leopard print Snuggies.  Did they really think that, that’s what people were demanding for?  Seriously, WTF….

weekender tote” from Etsy.  It was at a store called “death and taxes”.  I totally love the name of the bag, the style of the bag and I even love the name of the store.  Pretty neat.

Okay, so I am a HUGE fan of Run’s House.  Couple of weeks ago I found out his address and was very tempted to go stalk his house until they let me in and make me part of their family.  One of my dearest buddies, Gian, suggested that it was a fantastic idea.  So I knew nothing good could come out of it.

Anywho, so this Diggy character, who is probably 13 years old has a blog that I can’t stop reading.  The more I read and the more I see the stuff that he’s posting on his blog, I am really beginning to question whether he’s

  1. actually 13 because the sense of style this kid has is freaking out of this world
  2. writing all this stuff because he seems to have such wide range of interest (fashion, music, sports,  and even architecture)
  3. where he finds the time and the energy to blog so much

Regardless, I love the fact that he has very similar style/taste as me and I totally apprecitate his point of view.

Found these on Etsy today.  So whimsical I just love it.  Would I wear it? I’m not sure.
