Retail Therapy

This week has been super hectic. I really have not had any time to myself, so I've used this excuse for some irresponsible retail therapy.

As soon as I got back from Dallas, my first instinct was to go to shopping in Laguna, but upon dropping off my luggage, I decided Ieaving the apartment wasn't a great idea. Therefore, I opted for the sale. Too bad everything I wanted was either out of my budget, or completely unjustifiable. But thought I'd share some of pieces I was looking at anyhow.


Peachoo and Krejberg


Junya Watanabe


Go figure, after returning from a hot and humid Dallas, I still end up looking at jackets and sweaters...

Anyway I ended up finding this Junya Watanabe piece on ebay and it's officially mine! I was so excited to find this piece, as I've been wanting the pull-over version since it first came out.. Also it was a steal, and apparently worn once by Cher. How's that for a cherry on top? Hope it was dry cleaned first =X

Ordinary Objects Can Become Something Else....

"In my work, I talk about two things. One is about the search for possible changes and new meanings in the most ordinary objects of our daily lives. I believe that many of the mundane objects have boudless capabilities of transforming into something else. Under the moto ORDINARY OBJECTS CAN BECOME SOMETHING ELSE, my works come mostly from my childhood experiences. By little(or it may be big) transformations they make, the objects gain new meanings with only one purpose/function.
Second is to express the symphony of design and craft. My projects never undergo machinery process. Therefore only small quantities are 'crafted' out of my hands

Unexpected White

Stumbled upon this editorial featuring one of my favorite color combos, bright white with a splash of flourescent pink.

I've always been intrigued by the silent film actress Nazimova, so when I stumbled upon the DVD of the silent film "Salomé," I had to check it out, if not for Nazimova, then the beautiful costumes and set. I found some stills on-line, and also tried to take some film stills via camera.

Here are my "screen shots". They're extremely blurry, sorry!

There's a clip of Salomé's dance for the King, but I'm not allowed to embed, so here's the link!
