Okay, as I have mentioned earlier, I got these shoes online and since I'm an impulse buyer, I didn't know what to wear with these shoes when I bought them.

My style is a bit feminine but not a "grown-up" feminine. Somehow I'm still stuck in the stage when I was *sigh* in my early 20s. These shoes have a grown up look, so I thought I'd make something to do with my new shoeeees.

I call this a clash of Breakfast at Tiffany's and Carrie Bradshaw.


With a skirt...

This picture was taken 5 minutes after I had just woke up, which explains why I didn't put my face on.

I love love love love love love the fabric of the skirt. I originally purchased 2 yrds from the Indian guy in the fabric store thinking that it's enough to make 2 mini skirts but after using this fabric, I went back to the store and bought whatever they had left.


The pink blouse and blue skirt will be on sale online soon..... I just have to sew them first!

Okay. Mami just took a bus route and now is hungry



Done on illustrator and photoshop.

This is how I would look like if I were a chola. But no really, I think this would be the exact outfit I'd wear if I went to New Orleans. With my boobs ready to be flashed, cash outside of my fanny pack ready to buy another round, and wrapped in mardi gras beads to let everyone know what a show off I am. muahahhaahhahahha

but really. I'm not done with this sketch yet. I still have to color in the outfit with my illustrator crayon.

new coat

ohoh, guess where I got my coat!!


okay. you'd probably never guessed it because it didn't come from a store... well, it kinda did since the fabric came from a store and I made mah own coaaat! Why? Because everyone in New York is going to a big big funeral since everyone wears black all day long. It isn't even a joke, even the Mexicans that can't speak English wears head to toe black. It isn't a language thing, it isn't a ethnicity thing, once you've entered the door with the word NYC written on it, black is blending and therefore inevitable.

I actually made this coat a while ago but I've been a busy bee, didn't have time to post it up until now. I did opt my choices of buying a coat at a retailer. To be honest, even though there are so many wool coats around but they kinda all look the same to me. Nevermind the little detail differences (different top stitchings, button sizes, pocket placement, etc etc.. ) but most I've seen are either double breasted or it has blazer collars and they all look a bit masculine. I'm REALLY picky about the fabric so the ones I do like, cost $300+. So it's more like I didn't have a choice but make one myself. I got the fabric @ Michael Levine when I went back to Los Angeles during December. I'm a little bit ashamed to say this but I'm not fully knowledgeable of the fabric content of this thing. There wasn't a label when I bought the fabric. I burn tested it, it's wool.. and something else because it has this smooth finish to it. Almost like wool felt, but also feels like a cashmere sweater at the same time. Annnyyywayyy, I got the lining here at Chinatown for $10/yard for silk charmeuse!

Have you ever put your arm into a coat with silk lining? It's like acetate lining but better. So cold, so silky smooth, kinda like slurping on spaghetti but with your arm... if that makes any sense. Anyway, I also got these huge donut like buttons.


Oh.. just in case my picture do not give you a good enough idea of what it looks like, my coat has big peter pan collars with ruffles and ruffles on center front. It's A-lined coat, princess line at bodice... did I mention big golden donut buttons? heehee ;)

Caption this picture.......

Jolin Tsai's fashion line growing

Before I get into Jolin's new line. here's the front page of WWD FRIDAY 2/26/10

pradabackstagewwd pradabackstage

haha. It's a real funky look altho I can't imagine pulling it off. But again, we're looking at this on 2010 and the trend is suppose for 2011. Remember.. that might be cool and you might want one when October comes around...

Jolin Tsai's line Seventy Two Changes.

722 721

723 724

726 727

The line was collaborated with Erman- the co-founder of Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. You can see a lot of his influence in the line. The plaids, prints and the fun vibe. I don't think it's anything too special, but it's definitely something I can see many girls wearing. Bloomingdale's on 59th and Lex carries them! And to my surprise... Nordstrom in my beloved homtown Cerritos, carries them as well. Although I wonder why either Nordstrom nor Bloomies carry them at South Coast Plaza aka #1 Asian people mall hang out spot in SoCal.

Prada's new glasses!! What do you guys think of them? They kinda give you a whole new eye and eyebrows at the same time. I'd match the tan one with black eyebrows with my camel colored coat.

Dakota Fanning for Vogue Italia

Dakota Fanning is such a chic-ster!

I personally don't like the thick dark eye brows but I think that's what makes her appearance stand out in a model-esque way..

Does anything think Dakota pretty? I don't. But she has very distinctive feature almost like Devon Aoki kinda way and that's what I think makes her dainty-ly pretty, but very beautiful.
