American Apparel shirt. Vintage leather shorts. Opening Ceremony shoes

Been having a whirlwind week of trying to fit everything and everyone into my schedule since being out for summer has allotted so much time than I know what to do with - which eventually ends up with me scheduling things on top of other important things. I should learn how to actually schedule things according to my Moleskine. Excited for my seemingly endless summer: tis the season to ponder flea-markets to no avail and eat BBQ with your feet in the pool.

Was also summoned to a day and a half of jury duty which honestly makes the DMV feel like Disneyland. Luckily, I was able to slip my way out of a 10-day trial by sounding as obstinate as possible. A worthy article here explaining how to get out of jury duty: Everything Is Wrong With Me.

Been meaning to post this picture up but keep forgetting. My amazing girl friend who bought me that ruffled dressed a few posts below - an attractive face for an even more attractive personality huh? Taken with her Diane F Instant Back.

    What an absolutely delightfully delicious, "dreamy-dreamgirl," outfit!!! :)

    Contrasting comfy-baggy black leather shorts (really nice, ideally-matched bag!) wonderfully complement & flatter your sexy shapely figure; and in tandem w/neutral shoes & perfectly-chosen white socks, altogether, marvelously bring out your skin's lovely hue! :)

    And, as per usual, your simply-stated yet "creative stroke of genius," "sunburst of brilliant color" shirt is delightfully captivating to the eye; and then the "crowning touch" of perfectly-color-matched, luscious-looking lips, along with adorning-artsy earrings, seem to most wonderfully enhance & perfectly frame your "oh, so pretty & lovely face!" "WOW!, Raych, you're jus' so 'freakin'-rockin-hott,' babe!!!" :) <333

    Good-day Raych! :)

    Jus' a lil' note (well, you always seem to inspire, "more", lol) to letcha know how ya "never cease to amaze," babe! ;)

    I'm sure you're wonderin' jus' exactly what, of which i speak? Well, it's really something small in a sense; yet, 'cause it's simply so stylishly unique (so remarkably, "creatively you!"), in actuality it kinda "looms large" and is really rather awesome, Dear! :)

    Know you're probably still wonderin' jus' exactly "what the heck" i'm referring to, which i'm 'bout to divulge. But first, let me say how it's something so "cleverly brilliant" & dynamically understated, that i'm willing to betcha most failed to initially attentively notice, as myself. :)

    Yes, 'cause i orginally focused so much on the one close-up headshot of you, where the "adorning artsy" earring is prominently featured, as a creature of habit, i (and i'm sure many others, also, lol) jus' naturally assumed you were wearing a pair, right!? ;)

    But, lo & behold, you with "thatschic, incredibly inimitable style!", babe; chose to for "unique & standout," amazing appeal --- to ingenuously "style single earring!" And it truly does quite effectively make it dramatically standout all the more, giving it some special pizazz & eye-catching appeal! "Damn, Love!", you're so incredibly brilliant!!! :) <333


  46. What a perfect summer outfit. I'm loving the shorts and the shoes especially but really everything about this outfit is great. You look so chic!

  47. You rock those awesome leather shorts ! I like the bag too

    XOXO, C.

  48. i really love your style because its original and not something everyone can pull off!
    since ur last name is nguyen, probably means ur background is from Vietnam? I am korean but I have been living in vietnam for lik 8 years!!
