East Meets West

This is a beyond amazing shirt my good friend Sally Johnson made in weaving class in high school. The assignment was East meets West, so she made a kimono style top out of denim with beautiful rainbow silk. I modeled it for her so she could submit it to a contest. I still think this is one of the most innovative yet wearable designs I've ever seen.

In addition to the Sally Johnson original top I am wearing Urban Outfitter's jeans and vintage cowboy boots. Photography done by Sally Johnson, make-up and hair done by Allie Moore (2007).

Taylor Momsen

Little J is for Jealous. I wish I looked as friggin cute as her.

Fun fact: I used to be completely anti-gossip girl. Oh, how things have changed!

I finally did it, I applied to lookbook! I got an automatic response along the lines of "we're not taking anyone new now but we'll let you know when we send out more invites" which probably means "absolutely not" but I'm excited anyways.

Genny Finally Speaks

Alexi is putting me to shame with her plethora of posting, so I finally decided to write something. This weekend I got some decent shopping in and bought these two skirts from Urban, which I'm way excited about. I love studded things, especially studded shoes (of which I own none) and studs were big at fashion week this year.

I haven't worn the tulle skirt yet, but this is how I wore the studded one today.

The sweater is from Target, the skirt, tank, and tights are from Urban.

Highly Skilled in Retail Therapy

I just bought this hat after having a long and tiring day of classes.

C+ in saving money

(which I should be doing)

A in retail therapy

(which I should not be doing)

I'd say I'm satisfied with an overall B+

I NEED these...

I want these shoes I have never wanted shoes before. I'm thinking that maaaaaybe since it's getting late that I'm not thinking correctly. They're $80, which is a lot for me. Especially considering that they're boots and I already have 4 pairs. But the internet is just too enabling, and these shoes are just too damn cute. Maybe I'll just sleep on it.

...Or maybe I'll buy this as soon as this posts.

Fall Break

These are pictures from my Fall Break.

(1) My room is extremely messy. For some reason, people generally don't believe me when I say that it's a pig sty. Well, here's proof.
(2) I don't actually own that door, but it's way cool.
(3) Happily holding a bag of comics.

The Magnificent Mile

This is the reason why I love having class in downtown Chicago: the ads that fill Magnificent Mile. Commuting can be a pain, but I especially love passing by this Carmen Kass picture (Michael Kors) and the Plaza Escada. I think the photo in the Escada display window is always beautiful, and it's a great way to start my mornings. Holly Golightly had Tiffany's? Well I have the Plaza Escada.

white shirt + jeans

It's nice to know that the white t-shirt and jeans look will never get old. You can dress it up, dress it down, girly, punk, comfy, sweet, sexy, young, old, risque... This is me running into people who also love the look in one day:

Shirt from Zara (on sale, baby), Belt from Mango, Purse from H&M, Shoes from some local Filipino shoe store that starts with a "J". Helpful, I know.
