Smiling is my favorite (except in the last picture)

Monday, January 31, 2011
My shoes came!!!! They're a little tight and I think I'll have to cut a toe off but they're so worth it. The shirt fit like a grandma shirt and I don't have time to go to the mall to return it so I guess I'll just throw it away.

Don't you love that I wore blue and teal together? Chase didn't. I think it makes my red shoes pop even more. That or my pasty Asian legs. Gotta represent.

What I do best

Sunday, January 30, 2011
Yesterday Chase and I went to the Fashion District of L.A. We loved it. It reminded us of the street markets in Hong Kong, Korea, and the Philippines but filled with Mexicans.
We didn't buy any clothes. Just food. Always. The whole place sold cheap overpriced goods...like the malls aren't stocked full of that already. But it's at least three times more fun in a dirty alley with food carts.

I'm wearing a secondhand scarf ($3), Gap dress I snipped to be a shirt ($7), J Brand jeans ($158), Tsubo boots ($190), and a vintage Gucci bag ($3).
I told you I looked like this when I eat...especially if it's a spirally potato on a stick with hot sauce, ketchup, and a fresh (I think) squeezed lemon!

So what did you do over the weekend?

Stop staring at my chest

Saturday, January 29, 2011
My outfit from yesterday was inspired by EmersonMade. I've got her signature flared jeans and big flower down. I had to make up the rest.

I got a lot of stares today with a few compliments mixed in. The stares creeped me out. I don't know what you're staring at. I am just really hoping it's my flower. If it's not, you are probably a creep. And by probably, I mean absolutely.

My husband and I went to LACMA last night. It is free after 5 for L.A. residents...AKA the poor people. There was so much to see and so little time. I was also wearing heels and had already met my 5-step quota for the day so I wasn't about to go walk a marathon inside a museum. We're so cultured.
I'm wearing a flower headband (giveaway win from Wanderlustings) pinned on a thrifted blazer ($3), JCPenney shirt (free with gift cards), secondhand Gap jeans ($9), Target clogs (gift from my in-laws), and JCPenney bag (free with gift cards).

Grossest thing I ever ate

Saturday, January 29, 2011
...was not chicken feet.
taken by me in the Philippines last summer
In Korean foods, I love sun-dae (pig/cow intestines stuffed with noodles and veggies) and sun-dae-guk but Chase thinks the latter tastes like blood. It doesn't. He's just American. I've also had fried larvae but that was for extra credit in school once so it doesn't really count. Most recently I tried a Filipino dish called sisig but I couldn't finish it after Chase told me it was chopped up pig's face...and then I realized how American I was too.

What's the grossest thing you ever ate?

Wore this yesterday on Thursday. The high was 80degrees!! And I wore tights. I guess it's still too cold for me.

I've figured out a way to get out of my inspiration funk. I'm going to use myself as my inspiration...since I'm so inspiring. I've been going through my past outfits and trying to recreate them - Project Outfits v.2.0. They're not going to be exactly the same now that my style is different and better...like a lot better...and I'm a lot prettier...and don't look like I'm 12 anymore...maybe 15.

KUTE Clothes

Friday, January 28, 2011

Round three! If you missed it, check out the first and second posts for KUTE Clothes.

So I've been on the edge of my seat with KUTE Clothes lately. We've emailed back and forth and they told me they were getting a huge shipment. They already got a few new pieces updated on their website but THIS jacket is definitely my fave!! ..more so than this one I featured a while ago...and it's cheaper!

I would wear this with my Hanes men's t-shirt, my black skinny jeans, and my Tsubo boots for a quick and comfy outfit. Perfect for traveling!

Is this something you would wear? What would you wear it with?

Do you hoodie?

Thursday, January 27, 2011
I wore this yesterday. Only for a few hours because I left work early. We took some Mormon missionaries to an all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ restaurant and I think a few uncooked meats may have fallen into my mouth accidentally. I don't know. It all happened so fast.

Um, I wore a hoodie yesterday. I think the world just stopped spinning for a minute. I always thought hoodies were a recreational thing...like sneakers. And after seeing this outfit, I think they still are...unless you wear them like Tania.

Cutter, Stealer

Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Hello, world! I can see again!! I cut my bangs a couple nights ago. I think I like it. I don't know. I just got tired of having hair in my face. Chase liked my longer bangs. He said it reminded him of when we were dating.  And then I cut them right then and there. I don't want him to remember me as his child bride every time he looks at my hair. (I got married when I was 19. Don't judge.)

If you're thinking you've seen this before, you have...here. It's the benefit of having stylish friends - you can steal their outfit ideas. You should probably take pictures of their outfits for future reference but tell them it's for science so they don't think you're weird.

Waiting

Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Bought these online from JCPenney with my gift card a couple of days ago. The hardest part is waiting. A girl can never have too many striped shirts in her closet. (I got it in gray.) And I love the bow and thick heel of these red bow heels!

Inspired by the Uninspired

Tuesday, January 25, 2011
This was what I wore yesterday. It's basically a spin-off of what I wore on Sunday. I'm so uninspired I've been inspired by my uninspiring outfits.

Street/Church/Friend Style

Tuesday, January 25, 2011
I haven't done a street style post in like forever. You can't blame me though... Okay, I guess you can. But this is me redeeming myself... Meet my friend, Kari. Isn't she gorgeous? She's such a hottie. She's also taken so don't get any ideas.
She always dresses nice but when I see her I never have my fancypants camera. BUT I remembered on Sunday and got our photographer friend to take a picture for me. (I have nice friends.) Don't you just love her skirt? You can't find it online anymore but I did find its granny version. Hem it and it's basically the same thing.
Kari is wearing a Gap shirt, Thakoon for Target skirt, Zara shoes, and necklace from NYC.

Basically Neutrally Dark

Monday, January 24, 2011
Like these side shots? They're Chase's doing. As you can see I take long strides. It's to compensate for my short legs. That doesn't really make sense.

I've been feeling uninspired lately and hatin' on all my clothes so I've been going back to the basics and a neutral color palette until I can scrounge up enough money to go shopping again.

Saturday is a special day

Sunday, January 23, 2011
Yesterday Chase and I did stuff...which is a big deal because we're boring. Chase took me shopping because I've been complaining to him (and you guys) about how much I hated my clothes. (I bought pants.) On the way we spotted the famous Kogi foodtruck so we had to pull over. It was DELICIOUS. We've had Korean tacos before but these are the real deal.
This is me tweeting.
This is how I look when I eat. I'm so pretty.
Later that night we met up with Heather and Kael. Heather is one of my readers! I saw that she was in L.A. and we set up a blind date. It was sushi so we're pretty much best friends now. We ended the night playing at the arcade and Chase beat me at air hockey so it wasn't that much fun. Fun fact:  this cute couple are in a BAND. Chase and I listened to some of their music last night and they're pretty much amazing. They've been compared to the sounds of The Postal Service. I am officially one of their groupies.
I'm wearing a Collection B jacket ($55), Gap shirt ($12), secondhand BDG jeans ($17), flats from the Philippines ($7), and JCPenney necklace (free with gift cards) before it broke, stupid cheap necklace. This outfit looks a lot like this one...but better.
