Oh Hay! I AM BACK!
(Romper Forever 21, Cardigan Banana Republic, Skirt Brandy Melville, Shoes Yesstyle.com)
So I've been completely living under the rock... at least from blogging.
I was busy with finals and I accidentally killed my Macbook so I had to replace it during the summer. I went on a trip during 4th of July to Grand Canyon and Vegas.
I've expected more from Grand Canyon but unlike others I felt that I was still on top of Grand Canyon.
However that thought changed when I saw the Grand Canyon documentary at IMAX.
By the way, a store in Santa Monica called Brandy Melville opened up during summer.
A LOT of cool and comfy outer wear. Go check them out. I got my skirt from there :-)

I often find myself in a situation where guys ask personal preferences.
Something like, "What kind of style you look for in men?".
I get stuck while trying to pick the right words other than gay/retro.
I guess the perfect way to put it... I really can't find the right answer..gahh.
So it's a trend to dress really modern with tight/edgy silhouettes yet gay for Korean actors these days.
I swear foreign people might actually suggest that they might be gay.
Regardless all the objection, I however, still love all these retro looks.
This actor, is known for his natural retro looks in all his movies and dramas.
I personally think he is awesome.
I've been interning at Creative Recreation for 3 weeks now, and my co-worker Will in Developments department dresses just like that. I sometimes want to creep up to him and ask him for shoots but...haven't managed to stir up the courage to do so.

So, I used to be a fine artist.
Always working with multi-media, I honestly used to throw colors and pencil strokes along brush strokes to create whatever was on my mind.
However, contradicting to what I've been doing, everything changed when I came to Parsons. I mean Parsons IS a design school. Everything is highly design oriented.
As an entry fashion major student, I was assigned to make transforming body piece that changes form and its purposes, for my 3D class. I've decided to make a bag that turns into a jacket, inspired by Comme de Garcons Fall 2010 bulky jacket pieces.
I always think an outfit turns into something called 'high-fashion' or often known as wittingly 'stylish' when each material on clothing is perfectly fitted together. Hmmm, sort of like a sandwich or a burger where every ingredient has to have certain texture, color, flavor, and the right temperature to please the eater. So when I see a 'perfect' outfit or dress myself, it's when multiple layers of different material are combined to make an art piece. Good example would be on the below. I mean I honestly wouldn't wear these outfit... but leather+ruffles+cotton+sweater+silk = Heavenly. I love clothes that are eye-grabbing unique but still give that subtle feminine qualities.
Excuse me for rambling on. Its 6:17 in the morning.
Due to school I've only been sleeping 3 or 4 hours a day, and I ended up falling asleep at 9 on Friday. With dinner on my bed! I just woke up at 4:30 am.
I promised myself that I will update my blog very often this weekend :-)
