following my yellow brick road in fashion

"Maroon" 4. The McSisters made me wear “maroon” today in my outfit. I’d say my sweater is more burgundy, but who’s judging? P.S. I’m awkward.

Jazz Cat. I went out with old high school friends and my old AP Gov high school teacher today! We went to eat shabu shabu at Jazz Cat and then to Le Arbre for some boba. Good meal, good vibes, good talks. It’s great catching up with old friends (yeah, I’ll call my teacher my “friend”), especially since it’s been three years since we’ve had that Government class. Things have definitely changed but it’s all for the best and now we’re all buddies! Anyway, it’s still warm here at night in El Monte so I stuck with some basics :)

Oh yeah, GO SEAHAWKS!

Easy Breezy. The beginning of the week was pretty cold and I finally realized that now’s the awkward and uncomfortable period of summer-to-fall transition. The weather’s changed for a couple of days and I was stuck wearing jeans and jackets and other apparel that just weren’t “fitting.” I’m still in summer mode and it’s dreadful because I have a midterm and paper due next week and I’m freaking out! But today’s outfit was a nice break from the early-semester stresses I’ve been having lately.

RUSH ZETAS! Today was USC Zeta Phi Rho’s Obey Sale for their rush week and of course, I came out to work and to support! I knew it was going to be hot, so I made sure my outfit felt breezy and comfortable.

I’m still trying to find time to do this blog and nobody is willing to take pictures except for my sisters, so bear with me while I get things rolling. 

Good luck to the USC football team on the opening game tonight against Hawaii! Fight on!

First day of school! I decided to start my blog today because the school year will give me more motivation to dress up and explore different fashion styles. But don’t be surprised when this blog goes M.I.A. during midterm season or finals week—I’ll definitely be bumming around in my sweats at that point! 

People have requested a fashion blog and it’s always been on my to-do list, so I figured that now is the best time to start one! Follow me for my outfits of the day (or night) and my own, personal insights on fashion! Here goes nothing…

Note: Excuse my poor, low-quality photos. They’ll be taken with my iPhone and by one of my sisters, so don’t even expect amazing pictures. (Although I will get there someday!)
