real life is so unreal

I've been thinking too much I think. And busy. When I am less busy I will tell you all about what I am busy with. Soon! I think.

This is what I wore today. Leather shorts I've had for years, I think... they started everything. I mean, for the blog, with publications (speaking of, if you can find me the latest issue of Elle Korea, please do! I am in it.), I was Teen Vogue's girl of the week in these shorts. And then I was in Teen Vogue, and then I was in The New York Times, and then everything else (I am probably getting the order mixed up actually. It's been a few years....)

I think what I mean is that these shorts might have been the beginning of the blog.

real life is so unreal
Everything is vintage except the wonderful pompom necklace Yokoo was kind enough to send me last summer. 



A poem by one of my favorite poets, Michael Cirelli.

shoes.

I can't tell if I'm happy or not, but I'm certainly not sad. Does that makes sense? I'm restless, and I'm sometimes bored, and I'm sometimes wasting time, but I'm not sad, but I'm not floating on euphoria either. I think I'm happy. I know I will be insanely, deliriously happy this summer and maybe even in a few days when all of my favorite people are where they should be -- with me! -- but I..... I don't know. I think the word I'm looking for is hopeful.

Yeah. I'm restless, but I'm hopeful.

Hope everything is going well with you guys. Love you very much.

Noddy said...

Your blog has come such a long way, your shorts are kind of token of that I guess.

p.s. I love your necklace, Yokoo has such amazing work

Those shorts have a great cut! And I've kinda found a good shampoo for colours. It's from L'oreal (looks like this, but smaller: http://www.perfumezilla.com/images_product/l-oreal-body-care-1500ml-50-7oz-professionnel-expert-serie-vitamino-color-shampoo-women.jpg) and that + conditioner + not so warm water made my pink last for over 2 1,5 month! It's from the Professionnel Expert Serie and somewhat more expencive then normal shampoo. But you need very few (two coins of shampoo and a coin of condity=ioner) so it's worth a try!

I'm not even graduating this year (I'm going to be a senior next year). And I'm feeling similarly, a lot of my friends are leaving, and I know I should be sad, but I'm not. I know I'm not happy though, I just feel hazy.

Also, I really like that song, who is it by?

I'm a new reader and I like what I see and read. =)
Have an awesome weekend, I hope your hopes and thoughts help you be where you want to be!

i lurve your shoes/necklace/outfit!!!
oxfords = life.

cavaan said...

you know if your shorts got you into blogging then your shorts must have gotten me into blogging again too. before this i was a xanga kid. (yeah... don't judge).

the shorts are a great cut, they'd go great with this beautifully tailored Arnsdorf coat i saw... from a runway. LOL.

anyway, i think you have uber amazing presence in everything you do, and although the present seems like an endless summer time, happy, not bad - but not yet swimming in pure euphoria, everything is bound to fall into place soon. and by everything falling into place i mean it like when a unicorn falls off it's rainbow but lands in an endless lake of acid. or something really happy. you can name it instead...

take care,

I know exactly the feeling you're talking about in the last paragraph...that totally just crystallized my mood for the past few days. Sort of alone, but not lonely?
Also, those shorts are beautiful!

Hiya kiddo, Your blog has changed a bit since I was last here, but I like it.
Forgot about the hair change.
That's so sad about the swan, that your friend posted. I can't believe that nobody will help.
I'm glad that you are still posting, come what may. And that you are hopeful, which is the best thing to be. Sante' babe.

You are going to pay attention to a lady friendKhloe Kardashian with Golden Louis Vuitton Miroir Alma Bag who is voluntary to strain by her handbag.

When it comes to the other characteristics, you might as well Visit Louis Vuitton's Journey of a Man's Wardrobe.

This unaccustomed Louis Vuitton Insolite Wallet PM is a destined nod to the popularity of Louis Vuitton’s unchanged leather wallets.

Combined with the good reputation of Louis Vuitton, I am convinced Louis Vuitton Charm Series will be a fine present for my mum.


The Louis Vuitton Zippy Wallet in Vernis features the charm of Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis leather and is named after the zipper closure.

I changed my stubborn idea when I was caught by Louis Vuitton Milla clutch MM and then how Make Louis Vuitton Milla Clutch Your Magic?

I seldom see a Louis Vuitton wallet with the black leather trimming and this Louis Vuitton Men's Long Wallet just stands out.
