The New Black Is Purple

June 12, 2008

I'm not very partial on being matchy matchy, especially color coordination -- it just doesn't appeal to me since it mostly turns out tacky. However, there are exceptions. Such as when you miraculously discover that your old cardigan and brand new pumps have an uncanny, similar purple hue to it, and you just have to pair it in an outfit together.

  • Tanktop: Ron Herman
  • Cardigan: Velvet
  • Shorts: Ksubi
  • Belt: My little brother's
  • Pumps: Frye
  • Necklace: Forgot the designer
Aside from that, Ted finished his finals (finally!) which means we can start another video blog. We've been eager to create another since our first one! I kid you not, the second he finished his final, he texted me "let's vlog (video+blog). Well, we need content, so ask us some questions (it doesn't have to be about the blog or about fashion).

And if you're a recent reader and you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's the first video we posted.

    I need a fricking vacation, Raych. Reno is nas-tay and boring. I'll come to LA for mah birfday and we'll go shopping and dancing. I promise I'll wear flat sandals or if I wear heels I'll just walk on the street and you can walk on the sidewalk, yesss.


  21. I don't know about purple being the new black. But that cardigan looks swell on you!


  22. How about a fashion show for the vlog? Obviously you have great items in your closet, and you put them together in such effortless outfits that we all enjoy and can easily translate to our lifestyles. I would love to see the cool clothes in your closet in a vlog!
