March 11, 2009

Over the weekend, James and I went to my aunt's place for my cousin's first birthday party! Warning: this is an irrelevant, picture-heavy post, but I was just having fun with James' XSI.

Such an amazing penthouse. I love the decor, and it looks much better when it's not toddler-proofed.

Birthday girl opened her presents with her mommy, selfishly ran away with her toys, then crashed from partying so hard. She is mixed half Vietnamese and half white. Jealous; Asian+White offsprings are gorgeous from birth!

Vietnamese cuisine is my absolute favorite... then soulllll food.

After an hour of listening to Itsy Bitsy Spider on the guitar and watching a really pretty clown work the room, James and I had to get out... We walked a few blocks to Olvera Street. As you walk down a plaza of street venders, you're somewhat overwhelmed by the culture's richness and beautiful, vibrant aesthetics. Definite tourist stop. 

I totally dressed down, but lately, this has been my omg-I-have-to-leave-the-house-now outfit. And James scored these sweet shoes on eBay, and I can't stop staring at his feet in envy of such a good deal.

On me:
  • Shirt: Chloé
  • Jeans: Levi's
  • Shoes: Chloé
  • Bag: Quicksilver
On James:
  • Cardigan: Cloth + Logic (JustJared did a sweepstakes, and James and I spent one night spamming the comment box for this, and he won! I laughed so hard when he told me he got an email from JustJared for his shipping address. I think, combined, we contributed a good 1000 comments.)
  • Shirt: American Apparel
  • Jeans: Levi's
  • Shoes: Comme des Garçons (so sexy, right?)

    yes the whole half asian/half caucasian child is such a huge growing trend over the past couple years, the statistics are ridiculous, especially in california.

    lol i think most asian women are just not have satisfying relationships with other asian men anymore so they turn to white men who they think are superior to have cute babies!

  21. I really like these photos, so cute :) your cousin is way too cute, by the way. Amazing penthouse!

    You look fabulous. So chic but such a simple look!


  22. i love your outfit! and the new layout aswell. so clean and simple i love it! xo

  23. 1. The apartment looks amazing! Minimalism decor is my favorite, i love how much sunlight comes from the windows.
    2. Your cousin is way too cute. That little white dress is adorable!
    3. Totally in love with your outfit. You really make the laid-back yet cool style. And so effortlessly!

    I know this is already going to be taken as an offensive comment, so I wont even bother with saying "no offense"

    From looking at your pictures, I can see that you have a great sense of fashion, and very eclectic style. But I also don't think you put things together nicely. Trying to wear 5 trends at one time just ends up looking a hot mess. Take Nicole Richie for example, she always looks so put together and chic, because she doesn't over do it. She also wears clothing that flatters her body. You wear so many things that just don't look good on you. I think it's great to be into fashion and all that, but sometimes you just end up looking ridiculous, instead of "chic"

  27. It would be awesome if it actually came from Doug but alas no. I just kind of made it up but I guess I'm not that original...

    Dude that loft is freaking fabulous. I think the iron-casted stair case is what makes it. No?

  28. I really like your blog & your style.
    I'm definitely keeping you as one of my favorite blogs on my blog roll :)

  29. gyeahhhhhh HAPA power!

    Totally agree with the half asian, half white baby thing. They always turn out to be stunningly beautiful people....I've always wanted mixed babies.

    If you and james had kids they'd definitely be part of the gorgeous mixed babies circle ;)
