Okay can we just talk about how fabulous Selena Gomez looked at the Versace S/S ’14 show in Milan… Basically that look embodies what I want my uniform to consist of this fall. 
Girly silhouettes, dark colors and bold lips.

I’ve been briefly following NYFW, LFW and MFW through Instagram. My course load does not allow for internet fashion obsession. Nor does it allow for television watchin’ (I’ve been sticking solely to glimpses of CNN whilst making breakfast…who am I?) I was completely unaware of the production of The Originals. Is this a spinoff television series? Is The Vampire Diaries going to air simultaneously? I mean, I’m not sure why I’m curious considering I dropped watching TVD a while ago. But in my opinion they are taking this whole series way too far…I think it’s time to wrap it up. 

In other news, I attended a Mount Kimbie show the other day at the EchoPlex. Interesting music, intriguing slideshows and a lot of people watching… I’m definitely not a Silverlake/Echo Park person. Nor am I into trance music (though “Made To Stray” is a pretty good song). It was a cool experience nonetheless. It made me nostalgic for Lollapalooza. I’m in need of a therapeutic music festival ASAP.

School is kicking my ass–in a good way. I’m in 16 units, I have an internship, I’m writing for the Daily Trojan and I’m in a sorority. “No rest for the wicked” kinda thing goin’ on…ish. 3 out of 4 of my classes revolve around writing and thinking about life in a philosophical manner so I’m pretty much brain dead by this time during the week and all I want to do is watch mindless television shows and eat multigrain waffles. 

Side note: I look very unkempt and that wasn’t done on purpose. #shabbychic #naturally #lol #ineedanap

This shoot: the location, vibe and outfit was inspired by Lana Del Rey. The light leaks were all natural so we got some pretty awesome shots. These photographs have inspired me to want to purchase a Canon T3i.
I’m obsessed with this lingerie style dress. It’s delicate, simple and sexy without being too forward. And naturally, I added my quintessential gold accents. 
I bought these sunglasses to replace my Célines which I so irresponsibly misplaced. But I’m definitely in love with these as well. I’m all about the transparent sunglasses trend.

Earlier today my sister texts me that she sent me a package and that I needed to go downstairs and get it because it was perishable. I take the elevator down and she’s standing right there! Pretty much gave me a mini heart attack. She drove eight hours to come surprise me since we haven’t seen each other since March. 
We decided to head to Sunset Boulevard and go to Chateau Marmont which ended up being quite disappointing. So we decided to retreat to our favorite restaurant, Fig & Olive. 

Side note: I have a strong desire to wear this t-shirt to a vegan restaurant… I wonder how that would play out.

Definitely forgot my camera while skedaddling around Melrose so forgive me for the iPhone photos. Bought this iconic sweater from eBay because the Jeremy Scott version’s sold out (and was obscenely expensive). Paired it with a pastel/holographic/mermaid-y print and voilà, I look “kawaii” as hell.

Spent the day roaming around LA with my sister: promenade, True Food Kitchen, Rodeo, and Fig & Olive. I love my city.

Just came back from watching the last Twilight movie with my sister. I’m so sad it’s over and even sadder over the fact that I will never marry a vampire and have a hybrid child. Humans just don’t cut it for me. *cries*

I just got back from having dinner in LA with Vera from Verameat! I have a friend in my sorority who knows Vera’s little sister so she set this dinner up. We went to Nong La, a Vietnamese restaurant, and it was actually really good! I had never tried Vietnamese food before. It was such a surreal experience meeting my favorite jewelry designer and it couldn’t have happened at a better time. I’ve been questioning what to pursue in college and she gave me some valuable advice.
