I tried to include some of the looks that I liked into this blog post but unfortunately the photos were too pixelated, so instead here is the full show. Am I the only one who thinks that this collection was inspired by sneakers? Such as Nike Jordans? I love the textures of the material that he chose to use in this collection I thought it brought a different aspect to portraying sneakers. The colors that he used as well also resembles what I think of when I see Nikes a lot of black, blue, red, and grey. I feel as though this is a new take on the whole sporty trend that is happening right now and some of the material that he used in this collection also reminds me of the neoprene trend that is going on currently as well. I like how he juxtaposition of the silhouettes, some were very structured and others were flowy.
So I cut off all my blonde locks and I feel so refreshed! I had made an appointment in May with my hairstylist Anna Lee at Chaz Dean Studio in Hollywood, CA and waited two months for her to work her magic on my hair. I initially had no idea what I wanted to do with my hair and previously viewing her work I trusted her and told her to do whatever she wanted with my hair. She told me my hair was overly processed from the bleach and that she wanted to cut it all off! I previously had short hair before but this has to he the shortest it's ever been and I'm loving it! I would highly recommend you to her, but she has a long wait so make an appointment quick! I will be returning to her in the future hopefully for some new color or maybe a different hair cut!
As my taste evolved through out the years, I have to say majority of what I listen to now originated from my eldest brother Nghi, as I can recall from the first time meeting him he always looked different from everyone else and I think that's what really lured me to be inspired by him. Today as I spent my day with him and his girlfriend Brooke he asked me if I remembered when I was little and how I would always get mad at him when he played The Velvet Underground- Stephanie Says. Of course being a 3-5 year old girl I would be annoyed but as he played it for me today, I was of course in love with the song. Something I'll never forget is the day he took me to go see The Cure live at the Pantages theater in Hollywood, CA, back in 2011. I think from that point on I was musically inspired and wanted to acquire new taste in music, so thank you big bro for inspiring me. Above is a cover that he played for me by Emiliana Torrini.
Can we just talk about how in love I am with Saint Laurent's SS 2015 menswear? I absolutely adore Hedi Slimane and ever since he became the creative director for Saint Laurent I have to say his inspiration for the designs are so amazing. If you love that classic rock n roll/ 1960's look you will love Saint Laurent, also the music that they play for the runway is great. Check out Cherry Glazerr a young and up coming band from LA, CA that was featured in Saint Laurent's F/W 14.

Initially today Edward and I were suppose to go see the Mike Kelley exhibit but instead we went to Santa Monica and just sun bathed. I only took one photo because the beach was overly crowded and it was quite a spontaneous trip and I wasn't really prepared. Since it was a good 77 degrees at the beach I decided not to go into the water and just soak up the sun!
So during the month of January my friend Flora and I took a trip up to San Francisco to meet up with an old friend from high school, Jonathan. We crashed at Jonathan's place for the weekend and it was a much needed short vacation. On the first day after we arrived we spent the day in the Marina then had some traditional Filipino food in Daly City with my cousin and some of his friends. The second day Flora and I met up with her cousin then we went to the Fisherman's Wharf and had Boudins for lunch, luckily her cousin was generous enough to lend us her car for the whole day! We then headed to the very popular and super crowded Haight Street, we spent majority of our time exploring the little shops and walking up and down the street. I have to say Haight Street really reminded me of Venice beach in Los Angeles, CA. Later that night we went ice skating in Downtown SF it was so beautiful and honestly very painful I was super sore the next day. On our last day my friend Jonathan and I went to the Mission for some quick breakfast then rushed all the way over to the bus stop and back to LA we were. I seriously miss San Francisco and it's cold foggy weather, I wish I could go back!
