i leave my body for the sky

May 18, 2010

Sonia Rykiel x H&M bra. Erin x RVCA tank. Gap jeans. Chloe shoes. Vintage blazer. La Mer watch. Loehmanns necklace.

Found this blazer hidden deep in my neighborhood Goodwill equipped with unflattering shoulder pads but amazingly lends a stronger silhouette when needed. I tend to rip off all shoulder pads from vintage finds simply because I feel they belong in the 80s, luckily for me, this salmony-silky goodness' shoulder pads are detachable which instantly transforms to your average button-up with pointy lapels. Perhaps when I'm feeling a bit adventurous, I can snap in the rather subtle shoulder pads if I can remember where I put them.

I also declare GAP the coolest underdog ever (can we die over these shoes in unison?). These patched denim say it all - they also run big, so I'm more than satisfied when I fit into jeans one size lower than my average pair with room to spare.

Thank you everyone for the congratulations and UCI welcome! Definitely looking forward to Fall.

    looking gorgeous as always!!!

    what nail polish are you wearing?? it's so pretty! ^_^

  5. That blazer looks like such a great find. And by the way, your face is so, so great. I mean that in the less-creepiest way possible. But I'm mindblown that those jeans are from Gap. That definitely was not the first name that came to my mind when I saw them.

    "Raych, Dear Raych!" - :)

    These pics are near-utterly, "bizarrely-so-beautiful/lovely," babe! :)

    The "church/school cloister" in background, in tandem w/the near sunburst-halo, render an effect of one having or experiencing some seriously, suggestively "sublime education or enlightenment of beauty" on some altogether "grand & heavenly scale or realm!" :)

    I mean, upon first glimpse, my initial gut/response/reaction is honestly one of an imaginative - - - "damn, holyshit! have i possibly died and gone to heaven, now bein' greeted by this "oh,so fine & divinely, gorgeously beautiful creature!?" :)

    "Thank you, God! as surely only you could create such 'true beauty & wonder,' blessing me to so wondrously witness and now in heaven, so gloriously experience!" :)

    Truth be told, i'm presently near ready via astral projection, to virtually "leave my body, taking to the sky...", desirous of bein'
    "so at one w/such divine beauty & lovliness!" :)

    Hey, a guy can certainly, surely,
    "most wonderfully dream," right? After all, Raych; Sweetheart, you're "so damn divinely dreamy," so for real, how pray tell, can one possibly not!?! :) <333


  14. Nice jeans and lovely nail polish colour ahha :D

  15. Great find! Totally love the color! And nice outfit like usual ;)

  20. You're so pretty! LOVE the dusty rose blazer

  21. the wait will be worth it...

    great song :)

    Love the blazer

  22. the look's amazing - the vintage blazer's a major score, the necklace kills it for days, the nails are not perfect (which is perfection in itself) and the jeans really add that last bit of zing.

    yes, Gap is more of a treasure trove than people give it credit for...ya gotta dig (and try and have your hopes bashed on the fitting room floor a few times), but it's worth it.

  23. loving the necklace and the fact it's from Loehmanns!

  24. i love those jeans, had my eye on them for a while. they look great the way you styled them with a white tank and statement necklace. you're so pretty raych!
    amen for the shoulder pad removal too. i alwayas do that. although i have regretted it shockingly enough once or twice. usually though it's so much better!!!

  25. I just found your blog and I LOVE your style. I was looking at your posts and my boyfriend glanced over and commented on some of your outfits. He likes it too. I'm so excited to follow your adventures in fashion

  26. Firstly, let me give you a big zot, zot! I didn't go to UCI, but my boyfriend and my very close friend did, so it's close to my heart as well. Congrats!

    Secondly, I would wear every single piece you have on right here, in this exact fashion. I was definitely surprised to read that the jeans are Gap! I might need to make a stop there at some point this week.


  27. Amazing photos!!
    You look really gorgeous.

  28. I came across your blog on Chicisimo and you were wearing Mink Pink.I LOVE MINK PINK! Their stuff is super cute! I get mine from They always have deals/promos going on too on their blog and best of all they ship internationally!

  42. I absolutely adore the outfit and the layering of the bracelets. Great look!

  43. Sometimes (most of the time) shoulder pads are worth cutting out of thrift store finds, but I've recently discovered that they kind of look awesome... sooo I suggest you embrace it and rock em' in that blazer! Looks amazing with or without. Even as a GAP fan, so so so shocked by those amazing, wonderfully awesome shoes?! Who knew they had it in them?

  50. This is beautiful! When it first started, I thought the patch-work thing was a nasty thrownback to my misguided childhood fashion years... but this is just right. Perfect!

  51. You completely nailed this one...well done


  52. wow. fantastic necklace!! ..your photos are all so beautiful as well!

  53. My brother will be transferring to UCI as well! Cool beans. How nuts would it be if you two had classes? Ha, but super unlikely cause I believe his major is something like East Asian studies.

    I DIE over those wedges! And nice find on that blazer.


  54. I love your nails and the patches on your jeans! Great blog!

  55. You are lovely!!!!

  56. That nail polish is a great contrast!

  57. HEY, my lil bro is attending UCI next year as a freshman! Congrats on your admittance! Perhaps I'll see you around whenever I stop by your campus (I visit at least once a year to see friends :) I'll also probably be taking my brother home every now and then...sigh, siblings). Please don't be freaked out if I happen to give you an enthusiastic "hello". :b

  58. I love this outfit so much!

  59. You look great! I am usually a pink-hater, but this spring and summer I haven't been able to keep away from the soft feminine pinks and peaches that are dominating the stores. So chic!
