Things You Find While Browsing

Was browsing through some old folders on my laptop, and stumbled upon some pics I took at this fashion show I attended like hella months ago. Opps, my bad. Better late than never in posting them, right? Here are some of my favorite looks from designer Jeaneen Brunck.

Mr. Huxtable Sweater Game Crazy

"Champagne"

I love knitwear. Even if it looks like something Dr. Cliff Huxtable would wear on the Cosby Show. Now if only wearing this sweater gave me the type of coinz he had. After spending a couple weeks on the East Coast in the Washington D.C. area, I decided to pull a "When in Rome" moment and purchased a pair of Timberland's to bring over to San Francisco. Cause let's be real. We all know Timbs are a New York thing, and I haven't really worn them since I first moved to the Bay Area over 15 years ago.

In other news, there are so many nooks and crannies of Golden Gate Park I haven't set foot on. Case in point: I had no idea there was an AIDS Memorial (pictured above) until Imelda suggested we check it out.

Pop That

I've been on a neutral phase this winter. Not with just colors, but with my over all wardrobe I guess. Simple is more, at times.  And plus, the weather has been amaze-balls in San Francisco recently (OOPS, sorry bout it,  NYC Juno victims), but wearing any sort of bright pops of colors in the winter just seems odd to me, regardless with the sun out. However, I do love the pop of color in this mural. I love it! The San Francisco Skyline, the pop of color, and all that.

Keith Haring - The Political Line

Hey guys! First off, Happy 2015! Is it to late to be wishing people that? I know we're already 23 days into the new year and all. I don't think I've taken this long to update my blog before! Well, to give you  a quick update of my last post back in November, unfortunately the hunt is still on for me to land a position into a new career field, more specifically into the Merchandising/Buying side of retail. BUT, new year, new opportunities right? I'll keep you guys posted on that.

The other day, I made my way to the de Young Museum with my friend Cana Klebanoff to check out the Keith Haring The Political Line exhibit. There's something about Haring's work that embodies the 1990's, and I remember his colorful work growing up.

Haring's sketch book of Manhattan Penis Drawings for Ken Hicks. So. Much. Cock. His work was very conscious of HIV/AIDS epidemic of the 80's as well, more specifically his Silence = Death work... Which is still relevant today in 2015.

Keith's "Self Portrait". Looking at actual photos of him in the 80's, such cute hipster boy. The exhibit is currently running until February 16th, 2015 - so there's still plenty of time to check it out. Definitely worth a visit!

Hopefully by my next update, I'll be telling you guys about this amazing new job I just landed! Till next time, bye!

BRB

Hey dudes. I know its been a minute since I've posted. I'll be back soon, promise. I'm currently in the process of trying to do a career change, so a lot of my time these last 2 months have been focused on trying to transition into a different field of work... Hence the reason for the lack of updates here, and also on my Instagram/other social media accounts.

I've been in the talks with Imelda over at SunsetShutterBug about shooting new material, and I also have material from the past that I still haven't posted yet... So believe me when I say this hiatus isn't by choice, but kind of mandatory for me.

Hopefully something works out in the near future for myself, but in the mean time all of my time and energy will be focused on the job hunt! So keep your fingers crossed for me, and I'm looking forward to coming back soon! Toodles!

Mr. Rogerin' On Em

Got on my Mr. Rogers steez by dusting off this old cardigan from the back of my closet last week. Our Indian summer is slowly dying down, so that means I get to slowly start layering my clothes the farther we get into fall. But in all honesty, the weather here in San Francisco is pretty constant through out the year, so layering isn't something you really have to wait till fall/winter to do. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

When Seed Store in the Inner Richmond open up its doors a couple years ago, I would poke in every now and then when I lived in the area. Now that it's a bit farther from where I live now, I make sure to stop in whenever I happen to be in the neighborhood. I found this Map Tote bag there with a pretty accurate map of San Francisco. You know, in case I get lost. Imelda has a tendency to stumble upon these random murals through out the city, this one being around her block. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood, for sure.

Modern Furnishing

Stopped by the Contemporary Jewish Museum a couple weeks ago to check out their current exhibition Designing Homes: Jews and Midcentury Modernism. In a nutshell, the exhibit outlined the history of Jewish architects, designers, and artists in the 1930s-40s and their contribution to modern architecture and design.

I always kind of had an interest in modern design because I find the shapes and unique designs to be fascinating on the eye. And also a part of me wants my entire apartment furnished with the pieces in this exhibit. This was actually my first time checking out the CJM, and it's worth a visit if you have a couple hours to spare and are in Downtown SF. Be sure to check out the exhibit before it closes out on October 6th!

Back To No School

Hey guys, sorry for the leave of absence I recently took. I spent an entire 2 weeks over on the East Coast hanging out in Washington D.C. and visiting family in Virginia. I'm officially back in San Francisco now (for about a week and a half, actually) and it's been hell trying to get back into the swing of things. I for real need a vacation from my vacation. Who wants to fund it?

So we are officially into September, which means back to classes from a lot of college students. I graduated from SFSU years ago, so that statement doesn't apply to me anymore. Shout out to all the college kids trying to earn a degree though. As corny as it may sound, I actually kind of miss going to college and the school work to accompany it.

Spent the day hanging out with Imelda at South Park, a little neighborhood I had no idea existed tucked away in the SoMa area. It kind of reminded me of a neighborhood you would see on the East Coast, with all the trees lined up through out the sidewalks, along with the large park area that is in the center of the neighborhood. Discover something new here everyday. 

My canvas Fossil backpack has been pretty much my favorite city bag the last 2 months. I don't know... I just like the vintage look of canvas with the leather trimming. It's also gives me a nostalgic feeling of when I was back in college and would drag 5 tons worth of books in my bag from class to class. Now, it just holds my city essentials from traveling between mine and Cody's apartment.

The start of September actually signifies San Francisco's 30 days of summer. September is actually the hottest month here in SF. So not going to put away my tank tops and coochie cutters away just yet. It's about to get real hot in the City by the Bay :).
