Asian Americana

Wednesday, September 15, 2010
There's nothing more Americana than a white button-down and blue jeans. Even if you look Asian and live in Koreatown, you're American in this ensemble. I added my new heels to give it some berry flavor.

  1. I'm all for Americana looks, even though I too am clearly Asian. :D And those HEELS are so delicious I want to eat them up. Not really, only because there's no nutritional value in shoes, no matter how berry they are...
