The Trend: Cat Eye Sunglasses

If you haven't noticed but Cat Eye Sunglasses are BIG! This season.  Well, I don't want to fall too behind the game but got me-self a pair of really cool white ones with animal print on the bottom from ASOS.  Loving them!  I don't know why but it is really hard to find white frame sunglasses that are cute.

Check out this style / trend alert from Glamour to get your cat eye fix.

The Random: Small Classic Cars and Old Big Places

Across the street from my office is this grandeur building that houses The University Club of Portland.  The building itself (inside and out) reminds me of an old English estate.  How ironic that this day this tiny classic was parked right in front of it.  Who was the owner? A musician, of course!

The Crave: Christian Louboutin Sex Pigalle 120MM

Wildly inappropriate but absolutely sexy... and a must have.  He has them in black and nude patent.  

The Trend: Ombre Nails

So I have been wondering how to DIY ombre nails at home.  Visited my Tumblr today and found great examples and step by step photos on how to do them.  For the full details, visit this website:  The Nail A Saurus

Wish List: Cartier Delice De Cartier Ladies Watch

Honey! If you're reading this post... this is all I want for Christmas.  Christmas 2012 that is.  

But if you're feeling generous, get me the men's Pasha in Rose Gold too will ya!  And a Love bracelet. 

Thank you!

The Music: Take Care, Drake feat. Rihanna

The Crave: Snapback Hat

Don't know about you but I've been really wanting these snapback hats!  Not just what's popular now [Boy London, Trapstar, Karl Alley] but also old school favorites.  

These are my top picks of snapback hats.  Basically, I want all of them.  Including the siiiick-ass Chicago Bull hat.

The Look: Two Faced [Part II]

And here is Two Faced Part II... a night walker.

I enjoy my evenings with a good glass of wine [or whiskey, whichever is closest to me] along with a very good cigar.  Yeah, I live in the U.S. so the chances of me really smoking a REALLY good Cuban cigar is so out of the question.  Nonetheless, Rich's Smoke Shop in Portland do carry some rad Dominican cigars that are oh so tasty.  In my mind, I lie to myself and trick my brain to think that it is in fact: Cuban.

Occasionally, a very rare occasion, will you see me handle a cigarette.  I Hate cigs... despise the taste of it and knowing the fact that I am breathing in rat poison makes me hate it even more.  But for the sake of this shoot.. I'll take a puff or two.




Nothing like chasing down a glass of Knob Creek 
with a bottle of Izzy soda.

My mysterious photographer whom I totally love and adore... you shall remain faceless so that your art work will not be affected.

I love my jewels... when I am Thailand I tend to stock up in them.  And why not, they're cheap and high in quality.  The ring in the middle is a De Beers design of champagne diamonds with two-toned metal of white and yellow gold.  My all time fave. ring.

The Look....

The Look: Two Faced [Part I]

This particular dress by Reverse from Urban Outfitters have been on my mind since early March.  I've been going back and fourth, whether or not to buy it.  Well... I bought it.

The look that inspired me to make this purchase came from @badgalriri in her shoot for the Talk That Talk CD.  Not going to deny it but RiRi got swag and I like her sense of street style.  So, here's is my version of this look.  

This is Part I of II look of how I wore this dress: Day to Night.  In Part I,we have a day version.  The strategically placed cutout can be a bit too much for some of us to bare walking around town.  So, to give with a different perspective and vision of an alternate way to wear this dress I paired it with a cutoff T-shirt.  

Check it out...

The shoot took place over the historic Burnside Bridge in PDX.  Below is this beautiful park and underneath the bridge [not shown] is the famous Saturday Market.  The Market is known to feature local artists selling their crafty goods.  From jewelry to clothes and dog treats... you can find some treasures down here.  And it is always busy!

Of course, it wouldn't be prudent if we did not include the famous White Stag "Portland Oregon" sign in our shoot.


This is me and my muse.
The only bad thing about layering the shirt underneath the dress is that the shirt tend to bunch up!  But, overall, it wasn't that big of a deal.

For the look....
ASOS cateye sunglasses with animal print bottom
Reverse cutout dress from Urban Outfitters
Sleeveless T-shirt from Urban Outfitters
Cross body purse, gifted

The Crave: Balenciaga Cutout Boots [Update]

Guess what came in the mail today???  
Yes, the Jeffrey Campbell Coltrane has arrived and I am ready to rock them tonight!  These are highly comfortable and the leather is so soft.  It does run a little narrow in the front so I suggest getting them half a size up if you have wide feet.  Can't wait to show you what I plan to do with them!
