I was asked by one of the designers I intern for to give him a color that I didn't like and/or thought was horrendous. It was basically a challenge for him to create something that would convert my belief in the ghastly color green. To be honest, I didn't think that he'd be able to do it. But then he incorporated various elements such as pattern, texture, and form, to create this amazingly beautiful skirt that conveys a charming and classy feel to this look. I should have known better than to doubt the propensity of a man who is widely known for his keen sense of style. In the case of the color green, I have been reformed.
Baking was something I used to do quite often. It was actually a hobby of mine that I enjoyed very much, as well as did those around me. But after making one baked good after another almost every week, the gratification that used to accompany my once favorite pastime began to dissipate. So last year, I decided to take a hiatus from baking. However, a special occasion like this does call for special treats. I've been looking around for some Valentine's day inspired desserts, and came across some that I'm thinking about trying out this year.

The ruffles and color of the last dessert inspired a potential outfit for the seventh Valentine's day that I'll be spending with my special someone. Hopefully all goes well. After all, seven is considered a lucky number.

Okay, I know it's just shoes but still. I got so excited when I saw the exact pair of Alexander Wang heels that I've had my eye on for a while now. It was as if fate had intervened and brought us together. The way he flows with me every step of the way, the way he makes me smile, the comfort that he provides. We're a perfect fit.

Spent the sunny part of the day shopping and eating lunch in L.A. I found a vintage store that sells necklaces with small frames as pendants that came in a variety of colors and designs. If I could, I would have bought one in every color. But for now, one will have to suffice. I tried to spend most of my time outside, enjoying the sunlight before it disappeared. Afternoons are much shorter now that signs of "winter weather" are approaching. I'm not too disappointed though. I'm actually looking forward to experimenting and layering with different pieces--finding out what I like and don't like; what I'm comfortable with and what I'm not. I just have to remember: there's more to life than just knits and tights.

Celebrated another close friends' 21st birthday this week. This time, we ventured off to the local bars in Silver Lake--Red Lion Tavern and Cha Cha Lounge. It was extremely chilly for my liking, but at least it gave me a chance to wear one of my favorite winter jackets, which actually ended up to be a lifesaver since the fabric of my dress tended to cling on to the cold air outside. We enjoyed the live entertainment that accompanied the German platters and drinks over at Red Lion Tavern before heading across the street to Cha Cha Lounge. Once we entered, it was as if we transitioned between two different countries in one night. The decor, the lighting, the music--all vastly different from our previous location. It was definitely a birthday to remember. Cheers.
