Bananas

Saturday, February 26, 2011
Today I went to a Banana conference. What's a banana? Bananas are yellow on the outside...white on the inside. Asians are yellow...whites are..white. If you still don't get it, you don't have enough Asian friends...and I'm not Asian enough to be your friend. This conference was for Asian-American bloggers. I won a pass to it from KoreAm. Woot woot. (I don't say woot woot in real life. I shouldn't have even typed that but it's almost 11PM and my guard is down.)

I wasn't sure how many people were going to be there but it ended up being like 200 bloggers. I think I was the only fashion blogger. Gotta represent...something. It was great meeting new people (Hi!), learning new things, and I even found out that blogging isn't just for putting up pictures of yourself every day. I think my whole world just fell apart.

This is the outfit I mentioned yesterday. It is NOT clubbing attire. By then I had given up all hope and decided to wear the unclubbiest thing. I'm glad I changed my mind last minute. It would've been so ridiculous going to a work party like this.

Okay, this is the part where you panic... Last day to enter the giveaway! You can win $25 to go shopping! And you have 16 chances to win so it's like you already won....a feeling of self-fulfillment. You're welcome.

    Haha so glad you were the only one to represent fashion bloggers... so have no style, but that is SO not you :) Way to go girly!

  5. Yeah, that's not really club-wear. I'm glad you didn't wear that to hollywood night, because I would have scoffed at your claims of being a fashion blogger. Just kidding. I'd still love you, because it's a cute outfit.

    You know what's funny, is that I saw that you went to the Banana2 thing on Twitter, and I was like, huh? what is Elaine doing at an Asian blogger event? She's not Asian! Oh, wait... nevermind. It's just so weird that you have an Asian side of you, you totally don't seem Asian at all. hahaha ;) Wait, is that an insult? Or a compliment? I don't know. I apologize in advance if you were insulted.

  12. I love your necklace! i neeeeeeed one.

  13. I have a little inkling that you are pregnant. Not because you look fat, but because you keep wearing baggy blouses that would hide a bump nicely. Just an inkling.

  14. Yes, definitely not clubbing attire -- though as I'm typing this I'm realizing that I wore a blue and white stripped shirt to a club on Friday night. But I wasn't intending on going to the club - it just happened, and all of the sudden there was a Mormon girl in a random club with a dominatrix. Oh gee.

    Definitely good conference attire though. P.S. Are you going to BlogHer? I went last year -- and this year it is in my backyard but for some reason I am still debating.

    The necklace, the shirt, the shirt and the trench are just the perfect combo together!

  22. You look so cute. BTW, I bought the red shoes from Penneys. This is the second pair I've purchased after seeing them on your blog. And not sure if it helps or not but the reason I check out your blog first thing every day is to see what you are wearing. I want to see what YOU are wearing, not photos of anonymous fashion models, or recipes or whatever. And I love your sassy sense of humor.

  28. LOVE this whole outfit! you definitely did some representing in the fashion blogging department! oh, also, that whole first paragraph made me laugh. i think we could be friends. (:

  29. Love this look but I think your clubbing one was more suited to a work do.

    And what's all this about blogging "isn't just for putting up pictures of yourself every day". Who is spreading these terrible rumours? What else could it be for? :-)

  30. Today I was so disappointed when I woke up because in my dream you lived in an apartment near me, and you were going to have a yard sale on Saturday and I was so excited because I was finally going to get to meet you! I wish that dream hadn't been so life like :/

    Ooooh, I do love those trousers! I just bought a similar pair for the summer.

  34. That sounds like a great conference. Maybe I'm reading wrong but the outfit you are wearing here is the one you planned on wearing to your work event? I liked the other outfit much better for the Hollywood theme.

  37. Are you planning to change anything about your blogging as a result of this conference?
