a.b.k Custom Leather Craft

I am in serious need of a nice looking bag to tote around my laptop. It’s embarrassing to say I’ve been using my old Paul Frank bag to carry my laptop. It doesn’t exactly scream “professional” but these leather bags from a.b.k does. However, the hefty price is making my heart sink. I Guess I should start saving up some dinero for it…

day trip to SF

My short day trip to SF was cold and rainy. I still managed to have fun although most of my day was spent walking in the rain and riding the BART/Muni. All pics taken with my iPhone, which I always forget, takes decent pics.

Hong Kong style Milk Tea

Wonton “Char shui” Noodle Soup for lunch

looks like a Banksy but I’m not sure (it is protected under a plexi tho…)

“hey Jack Kerouac, I think of your mother…”

ring I got from one of my fave shops, “Shotwell”

I purchased that coolio ring from Shotwell. This shop carries vintage as well as contemporary pieces. The people that work there are also super friendly. I spoke with Joseph, who was soooo nice & friendly. Check out Shotwell if you’re in SF!

The PEN Story

There is something about stop motion that I find utterly charming. This ad is incredible!

Btw, I bought this Olympus Pen Camera during my trip in Hong Kong and I absolutely love it. It’s a bit pricey but I think it is worth every penny!

The Uniform Project

My friend sent me this link from The Uniform Project. I am AMAZED at how Sheena Matheiken is able to take the same dress and turn it into a completely different outfit everyday FOR A YEAR! She shows how by adding accessories and other articles of clothing she can get a lot of mileage from this simple plain dress, a lesson in sustainable fashion.

Check out the video, it’s pretty cute and funny:

Dita Von Teese for Plastic Dreams Magazine

“Gasp!”, my cousin Belle alerted me to Melissa’s latest collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier. The pictorial for the Plastic Dreams Magazine is quite magical and beautiful. It sure helps when you have a goddess like Dita Von Teese modeling your clothes and shoes, does this girl ever look bad?!

 

I must get these cherry shoes!
