gothic vibe

Raise Your Weapon - Deadmau5

I didn't really do much of anything today, but I somehow found the energy to get dressed, put on makeup, you know. I had so much fun playing around with the gothic style. Sometimes, it's awesome to be a little dark. >:0

I was really inspired by the designer Commes des Garcons, as well as the one and only: TIM BURTON.


a white morning

So What - Miles Davis

What a great morning! Thankfully, when I woke up, it wasn't snowing like it currently is, blowing in gusts that threaten to shut me up in my house for the foreseeable future. As planned, I woke up at around 8:00 this morning so that my dad and I could drive into the city for breakfast and do a little bit of walking around. It turns out that our usual breakfast spot, The Grey Dog, was closed! But fear not, our backup plan was just as splendid, and I got some awesome shots of the food.

Where exactly did we go? With my quick-thinking mind (oh yeah, props to me), I offered up the brilliant idea of going to the Clinton Street Baking Company, which I'd heard has some of the best pancakes in NYC. And it surely did not disappoint.

Unfortunately, I've been sticking to a [mainly] gluten-free diet recently, so I opted for an "omelette du fromage et jambon". That's a ham and cheese omelette. Which, might I point out, was bigger than my entire face. Even while folded up in that manner that omelettes tend to be folded. Instead, my dad got the pancakes. But, HOW COULD ANY HUMAN BEING RESIST THE TEMPTATION OF THOSE DELECTABLE BLUEBERRY PANCAKES!? So, I had to surrender.

Fortunately, it didn't start snowing until later in the morning, and I got the chance to walk down to Washington Square Park for some photo ops.

It was FREEZING, so I wore my heavy off-white North Face jacket, cherry red Dr. Martens, high socks, and a black sequined beret that I actually got at this holiday market thing that they have going on in Union Square by the Greenmarket.

Thank goodness I've got nowhere to be this afternoon. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Merry Christmas!

Pictures of People Taking Pictures - Jack Johnson

Hey guys! How was everyone's Christmas? Mine was seriously awesome (and when I say that, I mostly mean the food)! There is just no stopping me during the holidays. But whatevs. You only live once.

It totally sucks that I haven't been on here in a while, but FINALLY, at long last, winter break has liberated me from the long, agonizing hours spent poring over my various notes and textbooks and the like. I'm so happy to be back on here, and equally happy to announce the arrival of my new and beautiful Nikon D1300! So excited to use it for all of my outfit pictures!

I may or may not be venturing into the city tomorrow morning with my father for breakfast, depending on whether or not this blizzard hits us earlier than expected. It'd be a shame not to go; I'm all geared up and beyond stoked to take some cool pictures with my new camera!

I took some really fun pictures of my family this weekend, so I'll most likely be uploading them sometime tomorrow afternoon. For now, Merry Christmas everyone!


in love

Dr. Martens! Finally!

Chanel BG Resort Catalogue '11.

I've seen some pretty incredible things in my life. And this might just make it onto that list. Straight from the Bergdorf catalogue. And as per usual, no one does it like Lagerfeld. Gold is legitimately my favorite color now. Wait, is gold a color or a metallic? Either way, it's seriously awesome. Hehe.

And my cherry red Dr. Martens arrived not too long ago! Probably one of my favorite things to wear at the moment (along with my gloves that I don't have to take off in order to use my iPhone!).

P.S. - I might be going to look at digital cameras with my dad tomorrow after my class at Parsons. Maybe, just maybe, I can convince him to give in? ;) I mean, how can he resist this adorable face?
