ID Pics

Tomorrow is the last day for me to submit a pic for my school ID so I asked a friend to take my pic.  It's kinda hard when you have people watching so I had a few outtakes.  And a video but there's no way I'm posting that.

Here's the one I sent out for my new ID (I hope it gets approved):

And here's another one, just coz...

I've been M.I.A.  Sorry folks.  I've been busy trying to enjoy LA before I leave that I have neglected my blog.  I also went on a brief trip to NYC to find an apartment (which I did, yay) and other things so I'll probably start blogging again soon....if I have some down time...

Sorry again.

Rainy Days and Mondays

The weather has been really weird lately.  Hot one day, cold and wet the next.  It's not fun but as I promised myself, I'll be wearing all my "new" stuff every time I leave the house.  It was pretty cold earlier today so I got to wear my new Australia Luxe boots to catch a flick (Date Night - pretty funny, btw) with friends.  Come to think of it, my entire outfit is new (maiden voyage) except for the leggings. 

Scarf: Madewell
Tunic: Zara
Leggings: American Apparel
Boots: Australia Luxe Collection
Jacket: Joie (not shown)

New Shoes!!!

I finally get to share my new shoes!  I'm so excited...these are already all over my collection thread on tpf so my dear tpf-ers, please bear with me.  And sorry for the crappy pics...these were taken in a rush :p

These are the Lenten ban-breakers:

 Silver Cotton Clubs

I've wanted these for the longest time but could never justify the $1000+ price tag.  I've missed out on these a couple of times on ebay and finally, fate smiled upon me when these showed up on the Outnet CL sale a couple weeks ago.  I woke up at 6am PDT for a sale that was supposed to start at 10am PDT...there was a lot of confusion over what time the sale was starting.  I'm glad I did though because the sale started about 15 minutes early and I bought these shoes before the site started having problems.

After I broke my Lenten ban, I was supposed to get the Louis sneakers; so off to SCP I went with JJ to window shop and try on my future sneakers.  Of course, things never go as planned and I ended up with these:

Nude Engins

I originally wanted these shoes in the Black/Red colorway but it was love at first sight when I tried on the Nudes.  I've always admired nude CLs and now I finally have a pair.

This last pair needs no introduction since I've talked about wanting this pair for a while.

My very own Black/Silver Louis Sneaks!!!  I love them so much I'm thinking about getting the White/Gold colorway too.  My favorite part of the shoes (apart from the studs) is the sole:

Who needs to stand in line for a CL signing when you already have Msr. L's siggy stamped on your sole!!  These are the first pair of CLs that I actually wore out, pretty much as soon as I got them.  I usually wait a few days to weeks to months (I still have unworn pairs) before I wear my shoes out.  I got these last night and had them on all day today.  Yup, that's how much I love them.

And these three pairs, ladies and gents, is Reward No. 1.  I'm just as excited as all of you to find out what Reward Nos. 2 and 3 are.  Oh yea, did I mention I deserve 3 rewards???  Hehehe...

From Thailand...With Love

I got to pick up one of my packages today.  This one came all the way from Thailand.

I loved that the wrapped each of them individually.  It was like getting 3 presents!!

And to my surprise, I actually got 5!!  I ordered the three leather bracelets and got the last two for free.  I've been looking at leather accessories lately and I stumbled onto these on Etsy.  Each piece is handmade using real leather and at prices that can't be beat!!  I'm def getting more soon.

Closet Challenge

We all have those days when we stand in front of a FULL closet and complain that we have nothing to wear.  For me, I tend to wear the same pieces over and over and the rest of the closet (including the ones I've just bought) gets ignored.

These past few days, I've been challenging myself to wear items that still have tags on them before I run out to buy more clothes.  I think I'm doing well so far and  I hope this trend continues because my closet really cannot accommodate any more new clothes...AND I'm moving!

H&M Garden Collection

Bloggers have been abuzz with H&M's Garden Collection and I finally got to see the collection this past weekend.  I went to three different H&Ms since they all carry different stock and it seems the collection is a hit with the Beverly Center location having the most selection. 

Most of the smaller sizes were gone in the pieces that I liked but I did walk away with a purchase (how can I not?):

This dress is probably THE loudest dress I own but it's a fun dress and I can't wait to wear it out.

Impatiently waiting...

I'm waiting on one more thing before I do a shoe (and partial reward) update.  Unfortunately, I won't get it until next Tuesday.  Is it Tuesday yet?

At last count, I had about 11 packages on their way to me.  Including Tuesday's package, I am waiting on 3 more.  I'll do a separate post on all the packages together.
