Life moves fast---- get a nice jacket.

In the past month or so, I've been in some sort of a whirlwind--making "adult" decisions in many areas of my life, and going through so much anguish (ie. no appetite, head aches) with not knowing what my near future holds for me.

The point I want to make today is that... life moves fast-- you never know what the future can bring; never give up and do your best in whatever you do. There is a lot of uncertainty of what tomorrow will bring, but one thing is for sure: there is HOPE in the future.

With that said, MD weather has been in a bit of a whirlwind itself- last week we endured the chilly weather of low 40's and rain, but this past week has been cool with highs being in 77 degrees just yesterday!

I want a nice, simple, light, warm winter jacket that I could wear casually and with dressier items...is that too much to ask? I am currently eyeing this Marc New York asymmetrical jacket...






















Speaking of change... I'm pretty sure this wasn't popular like two years ago, but it is now: open-toed boots? I mean, there are a lot of "cute" pairs out there...but really? Aren't they a bit paradoxical considering boots are meant to keep your feet/toes warm in the cold winters? All in the name of fashion and looking pretty? Okay, fine.


















But I want to ask, if you have a pair of these open-toed boots, are your toes okay? Especially the first three toes who are nakedly exposed to the world. Do you wear stockings with them? Please enlighten me. Maybe I too, will do something all in the name of fashion and looking pretty...

Scrub-a-dub-dub

Good day, everyone!

If you are feeling down or just plain dirty.... go check out a Korean SAUNA in a city nearest you.



You'll get scrubbed, rubbed, beat, pulled, yanked and a bit violated all in the name of getting clean!!

Wee!!

Be no fool.

“He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” 
Jim Elliot


What can you give? 

 

I am not falling in love, but these songs capture that act.














I lost my IPOD...or I cannot find it... -_- Should I get the new IPOD nano/video?
But if I did, I would have my headphones on in the metro/walk to work with these songs playing...

Dressing for Success-ing

Going back to the corporate world tomorrow....! Excited to work in D.C., but not too excited about wearing more "serious," work clothing. (Yeah, totally not shallow.) THUS, I am looking for some inspiration to look like the business-type (working in marketing), yet be hip, fashionable and cool. yeah-
What? I'm already hip, fashionable and cool? Aww, jeez, thanks... ha ha.

C'mon j-crew! Hit me up with that inspiration!












I see lots of ruffles and chunky jewelery...Hm, okay. Thank you, J-Crew wear-to-work clothing.

**Currently listening to: "I Keep Falling" by Lovers and Poets
"With a simple smile, you said 'hello.' That feeling burned into my soul; I knew I could not let you go. I keep falling...for you."

Sappy? YEAH! :)

3.1 Phillip Lim's new flagship store

3.1 Phillip Lim's new flagship store in Seoul, Korea...(opening Oct. 2009)!
















{photo by Nacho Alegre}

It will be located in Cheongdam-dong-- the "Fashion of Art Street"-- the central location of all the hip, savvy venues and high-end fashion brands. The store is designed by Leong Leong Architecture .
I wonder if the Koreans are extra excited for this because Phillip Lim is coming to his motherland!

Pass me a bottle of that water
