Current Obsession: Body Jewelry

I've been seriously lusting after these pieces for the past couple of days (thanks a lot Nicole) but I haven't pulled the trigger coz I have NOWHERE to wear them to!  I think I need a couple more days to figure out how they'd fit into my life/wardrobe before I decide to get them.

Chain Garter, $220

Knee Strap, $115

Chainmail, $300

Aren't the awesome?!?!  There are a lot more pieces that I want and if money grew on trees, I'd buy most of their inventory.  LOVE!

Yay or Nay

I absolutely love this romper but I'm concerned about its wearability.  Yay or Nay?


I've never really liked Barbies until now.  I think I kinda need these in my life:

These dolls are only available through a fund-raising auction and just my luck that the auction starts at about $1,000.   *sigh*

*For information on the auction, please contact Menchu Mantecon at 0918-942-5118 or email

I've been on a flats kick lately since I haven't really found a pair of heels that "speak" to me until I saw these:

I'm in serious shoe lust!!!  The heels are 170mm so I'm not sure about the walkability factor but these bad boys are begging to be tried on.  If you call me tomorrow and you don't hear from me, call the Balenciaga store on Melrose.  Chances are, I'll be there.

Dinner at Firefly

I met a friend for dinner tonight at Firefly in Studio City.  Two other people were supposed to come but due to circumstances, it turned out to be just me and RE.  The food was surprisingly good and the drinks were as good as I remembered.  The company was great, as usual.  We dished on everything from boys to vacations to tpf drama.  Good times.

I haven't really gone out since I came back from my very casual/laid-back vacation so it took a while for me to figure out what to wear.  I ended up choosing to go with black shorts and my burgundy python VPs.  I had an unfortunate make-up incident with my original top so I ended up changing at the last minute.

Not the most inspired outfit, I know.  Oh well, I was comfy and got complimented on my legs (lol).  Here's a closeup of the shoes:

Here's to more good times to look forward to.  Cheers!

My Boots are Here!!

I've worn my Uggs to death...well, not really.  They still have some life to them but I wanted to buy a replacement pair before they actually do end up dying on me.  One of my good friends, JG, recently bought a pair of Australia Luxe Collective boots and after seeing them on her, I knew I had to get a pair too.  The only thing holding me back from getting a pair was the price.  These are about twice the price of Uggs and I wasn't sure if I wanted to splurge on shoes I really only wear to walk my dog (and occasionally to school when I'm feeling lazy).  To my surprise, Reverse had a special sale the other day for Australia Luxe Collective.  After about a day of agonizing about it, I went ahead and purchased a pair....and I couldn't be happier.  Yay!!

It also came with a cute keychain!

I know the weather is warming up but it's never too late/early to buy stuff for fall/winter...especially when it's on sale.  :)

Carrera Sunglasses: Safari R/S

I'm a sucker...for sob stories, for cute puppies but most of all I'm the sucker who buys crap she sees on TV.  This time, it wasn't from infomercials (thank goodness) but from a music video all of you have probably seen.

Look familiar?  It's a still from Lady Gaga's new video "Telephone".  And yes, those sunglasses are on their way to me.  Well, not those exact ones but something similar.  The ones Gaga has on are the Champions and I bought the Safaris (below):

Like I said, I'm a sucker.  I like sunglasses but I really didn't need to buy these.  They're cool and I like them in pictures.  I just hope they "fit" my face shape.  I guess I'll find out soon enough.

Reward Time!!

Last year, I posted about my reward system when I finally get admitted into schools for my Master's.  Well, when I was on vacation last month, I got news that I got accepted into my first choice school, Columbia University.  Although I didn't get into my first choice program, getting into the school is awesome enough.  Yay me!!

So now, I have to rethink my reward.  I have a faint idea on what I'm getting and unfortunately I am not sharing until I get them.  Sorry guys, I'm gonna have to leave you hanging for now.  It won't be long though...a couple weeks to a month at the most. 

I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about my reward and I also wanted to share that I am moving to NYC in the next couple of months and I am ecstatic about getting into school.  Again, yay me!!

Why is this dress $1,295?  Can someone please explain this to me?

CL Louis Studded Hi-Top Sneakers

These aren't for everyone but I've liked them since the men's leopard version came out.  When I spied these studded babies, I just about fell out my chair.  Now I can't seem to stop thinking about them.  Lucky for me, I "gave up" CLs for Lent.  If I can hold out until after Easter, I'll be rockin' these babies when I move to NYC.  Can't hardly wait...
