1. someone’s abandoned Starbucks cup I came across when leaving a studio in LA last week
2. finally found the vintage leopard coat of my dreams (sorry, the front shot is an exclusive for Nylon Japan! will wear again soon)
3. Kelsey Brooke’s show in La Jolla I went to with my friend Brian from RVCA
4. my neighbor’s painstaking efforts
5. waiting for dinner…yellowtail salad
6. unplanned beach stop with all the wrong accessories
7. 30 seconds in an elevator
8. Alice in Wonderland themed Book of Shadows complete with personalized mug and travel size absinthe, a gift from Urban Decay (thank you Kat! and watch out for Colin’s pretty face..and more..on their Pocket Rocket lip gloss this spring)

And to answer a few questions…

Which Chanel beauty products are you using? I love Teint Innocence, a light sheer coverage liquid. I also have the Double Perfection Compact but don’t use it as much.

Where can I get the Dolce & Gabbana wedges? Mine came from’re sold out there now and I don’t know where else they’re available, sorry!

Do you go for cheapy own-brand batteries or energizer? Juice with bits, or without? Energizer re-chargeables and Trader Joe’s fresh squeezed (so with bits).

Have u ever worn sweats, jeans, or flat shoes your whole life? Even at home?? Of course! From some of the comments that I get..I’m way more normal than you think I am. I wear jeans a lot but sometimes feel like it’s hard to wear them in a different way every time.

Do you ever give back? Yes. I don’t talk about every last thing I do on this blog. Donate to help Haiti here.

U should start smiling in the next coming post. Your look so gorgeous so why not bring out the natural beauty? Ha…thank you..I’ll try but I feel cheesy fake smiling for photos.

I was just wondering where your roots are from? Because you have that asian look. I’m half Japanese and half white (Dutch and Scottish if you go way back). My mother was born and raised in Tokyo and I lived there for a few years when I was little.

I’m just wondering – did your friend fit in the ice machine? We forgot to check! So lame.

What kind of nail polish is that? OPI’s Black Onyx.

Thank you as always for your words :)

I used to not go anywhere without a low slung really wondering why I stopped wearing a style that lets you adjust and hoist up any hemline so easily. Not that this dress needed any hoisting but sometimes I can’t help myself. I got this belt in San Francisco last winter during an overly anticipated Zara trip (always get amped to enter that store since the closest one to me is a couple hours away) and never expected to get so much use out of it..might be on the lookout now for a chain belt while thrifting now. The love for the longish knits continues..I had and lost this exact cardigan and had the extreme fortune of finding it secondhand for what can only be described as dirt cheap.

Picked up a laptop case (finally), a leopard print sweater, OPI’s matte Russian Navy, and a weird amount of pieces at Bebe this weekend. Worrisome I know. I’m really more excited about iEmoji and shooting with No magazine in New Zealand later in the month. For now hoping to fill the rest of the long weekend with sand, Peruvian food and attaining some level or organization around here before it’s too late.
