PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT:


I can never get over the awkwardness 
when in front of the camera...








Ok, ok...for those who have been checking up on my blog, you'd have noticed the sudden change in editing. That's because I am currently testing out Photoshop and Lightroom! I am still in the learning process (which is ever so slowly improving) and I hope that I can ultimately produce nice quality edits for my photos. If you have any comments or advice on what I've got so far, please let me know in the comments section down below. Feedback is much appreciated!

Anyway, this outfit-of-the-day was actually taken about a week ago when the weather was still cool. I paired a black, cropped knit sweater with a highly contrasting hot pink skirt that I, of course, thrifted in a store right here in La Jolla! A lot of folks seem to avoid bright, in-your-face colors, but pairing or layering such colored clothing with a more subtle monotone piece can create a highly wearable look. Add in some statement jewelry and/or other accessories and voila! Remember: you can take my advice, but always make it your own! Go and wear a colored-blocked neon montage or layer in some patterns. You do you honey boo boo~

CHECKERED:


Just a simple OOTD for ya'll...





I apologize for being so M.I.A lately! Winter quarter has definitely challenged my time-management skills and unfortunately, this has been putting off my blogging time.

UPDATES:
-I'm an apprentice for TREND Magazine, a fashion magazine run by some of the most inspirational (and fashionable) students of UCSD. We've got an instagram, twitter, and tumblr! Click on any link for photos, news events, and more...
-I currently work in my university's library--Geisel Library--in the DLDP department aka lots of rare book scanning, quality control, etc...
-I am beginning my studies for finals week (I cannot believe how fast time flies!)...
-I recently went to a free concert for Karmin (I almost died, I was so happy)...
-I can't wait for Spring Break so I can see my family and friends!

Thanks for reading, and please tune in for further updates!
