Draw Me

Received this fashion illustration that Vancouver based artist Jason, of, sketched of me a couple weeks ago. I love how stylish and fun his illustrations are, and he manages to catch everyone's outfits that he sketches out perfectly. So talented.

I've actually been meaning to post it up earlier, but I'm currently in the Washington D.C./Virginia area for a semi quick trip (2 weeks considered quick?) visiting family and such. It’s been nice getting out of San Francisco a bit, and great fun exploring/doing not so familiar activities at the moment. Surprisingly, I went fishing today. I mean, really? I baited the hook myself too. #CountryRealness

Thanks for the illustration, Jason! Check out more of Jason's work on his site for daily outfit posts and other fashion illustrations like these.  Also follow him on his instagram and twitter RunJaceRun for more updates from Jason himself. See you guys when I get back!

Skies Out, Thighs Out

Took these photos some odd weeks ago with Imelda. Obviously it wasn't any time this past week given that San Francisco's ugly August weather has been forcing me to layer up quite a bit. Not to mention the strong winds has been messing up my up-do.

I got into a conversation with Cody about the expansion of SF, and how it seems to be becoming another desirable city to move to, right beside NYC and LA. I mean, there was 2 recent blockbuster movies out this summer that took place in San Francisco (Planet of the Apes, and Godzilla)... and not so long ago, Dwayne Johnson was filming scenes from his up coming movie here, and Terminator 5 (who knew there was a part 4??) was being filmed here as well. When Hollywood steps in, that has to mean something, right?

Actually, the fact that the SoMa area is always under construction is a clear sign that SF is expanding... not outwards, but upwards. Every time when I pass by the area, it seems like some new building project is going on, and something is always being knocked down or renovated. I wonder how the City by the Bay will look 10 years from now... or how much more populate it will be.

Unbothered Or Nah?

Hiiyyeee! Had one of those ain't worried about nothin' √† la French Montana type of weekends. Which could be why I'm in such a good mood for a Monday. Ha! Spent the weekend playing with baby nieces at the beach, watched a screening if Clueless at Dolores Park, spent quality time with my boyfriend... I mean, what is there to be worried about?

I received a gift card courtesy of a couple weeks ago, and this pocket square was one of the 4 items I chose from their collection of menswear accessories. In all honesty, a simple pocket square is the oldest trick in the book to give your outfit a pop of color or a way to tie your entire look together. I like to wear them casually, with a simple cotton blazer, and a pair of colored chinos.

Thank you for the gifts. Everyone make your way over there for a mass collection of menswear accessories to add into your wardrobe.

In other news, how many of you guys heard Beyoncé's Flawless Remix featuring Nicki Minaj? #Fiyah right? It's getting me pumped for Bey and Jay's On The Run Tour tomorrow here in San Francisco... See you there, Booshes!

Snatch Up: Riccardo Tisci x Nike

I'm soooo 2000 and late! There has been some buzz over a collaboration with Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci and Nike, having the head of the French fashion house design a pair of classic Air Force Ones (remember that song?) premiering a little over a week ago on July 17th.

Annnnd of course I made a visit to and a couple hours late, noticing that they've all sold out. And now I can't find them anywhere! Hence the reason why they're on this edition of Snatch Up. Guess I won't be stepping in my Aurrr Force Onezz *Nelly voice* anytime soon. Toodles, Booshes!

Spent the afternoon in Japan Town with Imelda the other day doing… uh… typical stuff people visiting Japan Town do? Like grab some snacks at Nippon Ya? Look inside Daiso for knick knacks we don’t need? Get boba from inside the Japanese mall? That’s what people do in Japan Town, right? Whatever. Honestly, I just wanted to grab a bite to eat and people watch by the pagoda outside in the square.

So I use to lovvveeee having lunch in Japan Town since my old job was located right across the street. It was just nice getting outside the office for a bit and get some fresh air. Guess the was another reason why I wanted to shoot some material for the blog here… I kinda miss doing that.

Pretty much ridic that I’m layering so much in the middle of July, no? There’s San Francisco weather for you. Lack of distinct seasons, and unpredictable brisk weather in the middle of summer. Oh well, still kawaii though. Ha, thanks Gwen Stefani for teaching me something during your L.A.M.B. days.

I'm out that J-Townnnnn, coming coming downnnnn... I'm coming down, dripping candy on the grounndd - #BeyonceVoice. By the way, if you’ve never had takoyaki balls before, you kind of need to add it to your list of foods to try out. They’re hella amazing. And pretty sure you can get them at any Japanese establishment. Till next time, Booshes.

Horror Flick

I rarely make it over the Golden Gate Bridge over to Marin, but when I do, it’s with my girl Imelda and we’re exploring abandoned creepy bunkers where I’m pretty sure a couple murders went down.

JAY-KAY. Except the part of rarely making it across to Marin, that part is true. Imelda mentioned that the Marin Headland Bunkers we’re pretty eerie and abandoned, so naturally we decided to trek across the Golden Gate Bridge and explore it like Dora and Diego. I mean, wouldn’t that be everyone’s first instinct to do so?

Holy shit, she was not lying. Not to mention there was a ghostly bed of fog that set over the Marin Hills, making me feel like my demise was coming any minute. Cause we all know the ethnic characters never survive in horror movies. 

I snagged these studded friendship bracelets a couple years during a quick trip to Los Angeles. I got them directly from PaolaLovesToShop herself, who makes 90’s inspired accessories that the girls from Clueless would totally wear. Who doesn’t love that movie??? Check out her shop for more fun accessories.

GLAD WE SURVIVED. Till next time, toddles y’all!

Suede In July?

The other day I ended up taking an afternoon stroll with my girl Imelda over at Stern Grove in the Sunset District of San Francisco. We aimlessly followed a beaten path deep into the grove, not knowing where the hell we were going, since we’ve both never been… despite both of us living close to a decade here in the City. What can I say? I’m more of a downtown dwelling type of gal.

I snatched up this suede leather cobalt blue Levi’s jacket a couple weeks ago from the Levi's located downtown on Market Street. I've been actually eyeing this jacket since January, and low and behold, it went on sale a couple months after. WITH an additional 40% off the sale price... Oh whattttt! Don't be sleeping on my recessionista skills now.

I’ve been obsessed with this jacket for 2 reasons: 1) no disrespect to PETA, but I love leather jackets, and 2) the pop of electric blue gives me and any neutral outfit I wear it with some liveliness. Paired it up with some Jordan's, with the fear of people thinking I was Cripping and getting shot at if I were to pair them with some Chuck Taylors. Jay-kay. The Bloods vs. Crips rivalry is so mid 90's.

The Marc Jacobs bank bag portfolio really is a functioning bank bag. Only difference is mine isn't full of money :(. #stopbeingpoor #helpmeimpoor
