Back in the city for school. Excited and severely not at the same time. Classes from 8-12 four days quite possibly will result in death.
However, a definite plus would be back to school shopping. Stopped by urban outfitters and picked up some goodies (ie. a bra that faintly resembles Mr. Wang's, as well as a dainty lace crop tank that I bought in a size large). Also stopped by topshop (where I quite literally bumped into Mischa Barton. I'm not even kidding right now, it was pretty embarassing) and picked up these two ridiculously sequined jackets, both for $70 (buy one get one free whatwhatttt). Sequins are slowly taking over my wardrobe.
Major dorm redecorating is in order. Notice the haphazard christmas lights half-falling off my walls: a constant reminder of drab post holiday merriment.

Got my first three rolls of film developed, - FINALLY. Sorry for the low quality, I don't have a scanner with me at the moment, so I took pictures of the prints ahahah.
Gotta run now, I'm going back to the city for a day or two (I'm back home for winter vacation). GOING TO SEE PASION PIT TONIGHT, yeeeeeaaaaaaaaassir.

Jeans: Topshop, Shoes: Acne, Top: Matthew Williamson, Bag: Mulberry, Hat: ?, Lipstick: Nars
So i'm thinking about regularly posting outfits dreamed up by yours truly via polyvore here. Yay or nay?
PS. I think I'm in love with the new Mulberry "Alexa bag" inspired by Miss. Alexa Chung herself. I've never been a fan of the briefcase-ish bags (don't shoot me, but I was never that into the PS1), but this my friends, is perfection.
PPS. Need to find the perfect shade of dark-dark red lipstick asap

I look like such a prick here
Jeans, Jean jacket: UO , Belt: Uniqlo, Cropped shirt, Shoes: topshop, Hat/scarf: random ?, Jacket: sweetface, Sequined Jacket: thrifted, Ring: YSL
-I look like a douche in all these pics, a result of being short on time and rushing out the door subsequently.
-I'm kind of obsessed with stripes at the moment, perhaps due to a resurgence of my inner francophile.
-Oh, and how awesome is the beaded/sequined cardigan thing above? It's a little much, but so good regardless. The best thing about it? $5 at the thrift store. YEEYEE.
-Theres something wrong with my dslr :( It takes pictures just fine, but the viewfinder is unfocused all the time. Taking it to the camera shop to see whats up, hopefully its nothing too bad.

I absolutely cannot stand the cold weather. Seriously, can spring get here already?
I can't wait until the weather gets warmer so I can experiment a bit with my style. Leaning more towards soft, feminine and romantic looks (lace, anybody?) for spring (but not without a bit of an edge).
Excited to experiment with soft and nude colors (oatmeal especially), nature-inspired accessories (OBSESSED with crystal/quartz jewelry at the moment), whimsical touches and parisian stripes.
ps. I really REALLY want that striped top by erin wasson x rvca, does anyone know when it goes in stores?

Jeans: BDG, Shoes: Topshop x Ashish, Sweater: Thrifted, Fur Collar: Ebay, Bag: Vintage (grandmas), Hat: Random, Glasses: Prescription raybans
Wore this to bum around with the best friend, sans makeup plus glasses.
Currently in love with chunky knit sweaters. Found this little knitted green gem of a sweater in the mens section for 2 dollars. Score? It seems to have gotten a lot of love from its previous owner, as its sleeves and hem are frayed.
I look homeless more and more each day.

Happy new year everybody! Went to a couple drugstores last night with futile attempts to get some rolls of film developed from my new fisheye lomo camera I got for christmas. Seriously, has film become THIS obsolete?
Lately for me, comfort trumps all. I've find myself falling for the same pieces over and over again because I feel comfortable and confident in them (or maybe it's just be being lazy). Here's a typical outfit for me lately: leather jacket + fur collar + striped top + jeans.
I got these boots from an sample sale a couple months ago, and have been wearing them to death. Got a HUGE discount for them. Now if I can only get my hands on the pistol booties...
I've also been wearing this fur collar that I've won off ebay with EVERYTHING. Definitely thinking of buying more in different shades.
Hope everyone had a swell beginning of the year :3 What are all of your resolutions?
