A baby on board


Got this in the Philippines last summer.
First time I wore it out.
It's been in my closet and every time I saw it, it just stared at me.

And furthermore,


Jordan is contemplating what he should be for Halloween.



It's not everyday you see someone walk in with A Bathing Ape construction-type boots, goldplated D&G watch, Rock&Republic printed jeans, oh...and a Louis Vuitton wallet just dangling out of her back pocket.


This is Yeoh. She walked right in front of me while I was waiting inside a shoe store and I did a triple take because I was sitting eye level with her jeans that just popped. And then came the shoes.



I've always wanted a pair but don't think I could pull it off.
Narinda Heng, on the other hand, can.

Here she is during an outtake for the TWSS shoot, looking quit pensive in her trademark way.


I just finished editing the second batch of photos for the webisode series. I got word that filming for the first episode started yesterday. Yeow.

Vicky Luu, I heartchu:

Faces & Spaces

It's Sunday and I'm bored. Editing more TWSS pictures and wanting to ransack my closet for stuff I won't wear anymore. I haven't gone shopping since the blazer, and I don't care to actually. Not until I acquire an actual job.

In the spirit of room cleaning, I found sketches from high school, back when I still had Boppo Clothing. I wanted to make this one Four Men into a shirt design but no one would buy it, I'm pretty sure. It was a scene from an old film with Gregory Peck. I had the screen paused because I was eating food and wanted to savour the flavor. But I was intrigued by the 4, and doodled them on a napkin. Scanned it into my computer and cleaned it up a little.


Then I found two variations of my friend Thira, whom I sketched sophomore year in our dorm room. It was probably a weeknight of the usual procrastination that took place. She asked me to sketch her (or maybe I told her I'd sketch her) and we wasted 20 fruitful minutes. She posed and I told her flat out that my doodles of people never end up looking like the actual people. They look like someone else. Maybe there's a girl who actually looks like this? Tell her to contact me and I can pretend I doodled these just for her.


This one I did while in Brazil.
I was waiting for my dad to finish up his conference and was stuck in the bus with a Brazilian fashion magazine. Everyone is so pretty there. They have a confidence and a prettiness that is unbeatable. It's just written on their face and in the way they walk. I wanted to spend more time there, just to sit and listen to them speak Portuguese. It sounds real pretty, like flowers are flowing from their mouths.


Now that I read the captions, I'm not sure if this was in Argentina or Brazil. It was one of the two. All a big mesh in my head. Good times and a follow up trip should be done.


Lets take a trip to NYC

Passion Pit - The Reeling from phantomcolor on Vimeo.

Visual and auditory stimulation that I can't get enough of. Passion Pit and Miike Snow, true love.

Dan Martensen's photography is numero uno right now for me:

He just shot the most recent H&M campaign. Mahvelous, no?



Best $2 spent

Yesterday, Luigi took us to Royalty in Culver City.
Pretty much the best brunch-slash-latenight spot that's less than 3 blocks away from my apartment.

I was eating my unagi bowl and placed my bag on the ground, not really thinking much of it. Snapped this photo of a lady who conveniently had a bag clip to keep the bottom of her bag dirt-free.


Today, I go home and see my Lola with a 2-pack of the same bag clip the lady yesterday had. Magnificent!! She bought it at Ross for $4.



Boots in 104-degree weather?!




as that:



LBC Blazer

Long beach. Open Mic @ Mirage Cafe. You must go and check it out. A hot sweltering room with a full crowd and talented acts that make your jaw go "O". That good.



Silence + Noise Blazer, $78
Purchase here.

My best friend + the cropped tank

Rocky & me

The Lab's UO is chock full of sale items. I checked online for this cropped Truly Madly Deeply pocket tank and found that it's still regular price. (A rip-off considering I got it for $10 at the Irvine store.)

Check it here.
