I can't be tamed...

I have decided I want to go to a music festival.
I don't even care which one. When I was in Santa Cruz, I talked to some people who went to Coachella 2010 and are going to Outside Lands next month and I'm green with envy. I will be in northern California when Treasure Island happens but I probably won't have money since I don't have the ability to save money.
The ultimate goal is Glastonbury since it's huge, but I will be happy with any.
I want to go really badly so I can see these beautiful people.

I dreamed I had nothing at all...



So you all know I am going to school in Santa Cruz in the fall and I am very thrilled to be going somewhere to start new and meet new people.
This past weekend I had my freshman orientation. When I was there, I had the best time exploring my gigantic forest of a campus and met people that I will hopefully see again this coming September.
My parents and I went around the downtown area and it reminded me a little bit of good old Monrovia with the quaint little Victorian houses and boutiques. Except it was a northern California version of my city next to the beach. I felt like I would feel at home there. It was great.
All in all, it was a great trip.

Baby I like it...

This past weekend was a big blur.
I saw a wonderful musical at the Duarte Performing Arts Center with my besties as the leads. They did Beauty and the Beast and it was beautiful. The theatre was packed. I got to dress up for the first time this summer. Then again, my dressing up is a plain tee and a skirt or jeans and a nice shirt. I need to wear heels more often. Or just be fancy for no reason at all. Now I'm rambling.



This was the first time I wore the brocade skirt I fixed up in a while and it felt pretty good. I love when I have DIY projects that turn out nicely.

Anyway, so Saturday, my parents and I left for Santa Cruz since I had Orientation to go to and we had a great time. I walked around the city, met new people, and explored my campus. Photos from that will be up soon.

I need to go shopping. That is all.
Smiles.

Your clothes just fall off, as the day goes...

Summer is dragging on. It's really hot. I'm excited for fall. I always get like this in the middle of the summer.
So there are a couple of fall trends I fell in love with at New York Fashion Week a couple months ago. I look forward to getting cheaper versions of what I saw since I can't afford anything.
I decided that I will share them with you today.

1. Fur - I already have a faux fur vest that was given to me by my sister, but I would like to have a faux fur coat. I don't want it to be too big and I saw some that are perfect.

Michael Kors - Derek Lam - Peter Som

2. Romance - I have realized I need to dress more girlie. I mean, I like girlie clothes but it all depends on what the piece of clothing looks like. I want something romantic but edgy. Give me black lace. Love it.

Philosophy - Rodarte - Vera Wang

3. Fantasy Blood - This shade could be super scary on people, but if it's done right, it's beautiful. It's a rich and beautiful color.

Rodarte - Diesel Black Gold - DKNY

Enjoy your day.

Serait-ce possible alors...

I am in love with everything French. And I am in love with Vogue. And after looking at Marion Cotillard wearing Dior in this month's issue of Vogue, you should be too. This is now one of my favorite Vogue covers. Love her.

I'm in such an interesting mood today. I don't know what it is.
I guess I'm really tired. Yesterday, we had a lot of family over for a reunion of sorts and I watched kiddies all day and accumulated food babies in my belly. This morning, some of the family staying at our house left for San Francisco, including Michelle. I miss that little girl already. They're coming back next weekend but I have to get used to it. I saw my sis for a little bit for lunch in LA today again, which was very good. Also the man, Andy, left for a family vacation so I said goodbye to him as well. Not going to be back for a couple weeks. Now I sit at my computer watching reruns of What I Like About You (yes, I watch that show).
Yeah so odd mood. I think I just miss a bunch of people.

Caught in the melody...

I apologize for not having any posts in the last week. I've been busy taking care of this little girl:

My six year old cousin Michelle. Smiles.
I had relatives from Kentucky and England coming all week and we basically took them to every tourist location in Los Angeles, as in Chinatown, Hollywood Blvd, Disneyland, you name it. My dad's birthday was also this week so we did that. Today is my first break from family and I have bester Gi's birthday party to go to. Busy busy busy.

Since I have been a busy bee this week, a week in photos will do at the moment.

A boombox is not a toy...

I have to tell you about this little band called Sunscribe...


Last night, I went to Chain Reaction in Anaheim with Andy and Gi to see bester Jeff's band play and it was an extremely jammin' time. They have this great unique sound compared to everyone else who played. I thought they were the best of the night. I may be a little biased since my best friend is in the band and all but whatever. Smiles.

I have a new favorite tee. And it's this men's really soft and light striped shirt from a store I now love called Cotton On. I wore it to Chain Reaction and it was so comfortable. I love wearing men's clothes and I will never get tired of that trend no matter what anyone says. I wear it all the time now. Love it.

Racing through my brain...

Happy 4th of July everyone!

So today I had a great time with friends and family on Myrtle Ave watching some fireworks and eating food. Ended the day with a grilled chee and sriracha (yes chee). Yum.

On another note, sorry I don't have any recent outfit posts. They are coming soon. I just need some inspiration.
