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 MrPorter.com and Nike.com 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
