Adore Zipia

A couple nights ago, I dreamt that I was the photographer for Zipia and styled the girl's clothes... (loove Zipia's photos recently, esp. for their new Xmas occassion outfits. Feels natural + quietly fun and I like how they create the mood) so I will begin to invest in a dslr and my goal is... before my trip to Greece + Italy... but I don't know if I wanna bring it on the trip.

Some Zipia pics of their Xmas + Party collection that came out last night.
I believe the collection is called "Dude&Charlott" haha

Love this outfit! They don't sell the sequined bolero I don't think...
Hmm can't really get the same effect on this blog as on Zipia 'cause the pictures aren't as big nor clear.
This is the party necklace I bought from my most recent Zipia order.
Really don't know why they took so many pictures in this sketchy hotel room, though...

Mirror Lust

(but not for my room... maybe bathroom?)

Bring Out The Glitter!

Nothing good on Zipia today but this picture.
Now I need clear, silvery, glittery nailpolish of all glitter-sizes!

Just checked my exam schedule - not bad at all!
Tomorrow, it's from 3:30-6:30PM and on Tuesday, it's from 12-3PM!

Anyway, last night I was playing around with my makeup and tried some eyeshadow - probably the third time I've played around w/ eyeshadow in my life (I need a one on one tutorial man!!) and was thinking HEY this is sort of like the time...
... when B and I got our nails painted in the "gradient" way in Seoul! We were apparently donning one of the season's (Spring 09) hottest trends, ombre. Course, we didn't know it was "the" trend of Spring lol.. Also called "graduation" or "gradated", ombre is french for "fading colours/tones" and it comes and goes as a trend on the runways.
It was all over the Spring 09 collections:
(love the Herve Ledger dress on the left, above)
These 2 single pics are from Celine's Spring collection 09
I'd use this:More bold.. I guess it's hard for a guy to wear ombre if it's not in a tie or a shirt O_O
But for for those of you who think that wearing ombre is a bit too wild (though I don't know how).. or if you want to carry the trend another way, you can also do it on your nails like B+me OR you can do it for your hair!
Don't worry, it doesn't have to be as dramatic or as extreme as what you're thinking.
I'm sure most of you have seen this somewhere floating on the web - it's everywhere.
I kind of laughed when Who What Wear Daily sent out an e-mail titled "ombre" hair 'cause I was thinking it would be something like the picture above.. and then I laughed again at the pictures they presented 'cause if that is what is considered ombre hair, then I've been doing it for years now due to my hair not liking dye!
Of course, mine wasn't on purpose... but do half of the celebrities above look like they did it on purpose either? (Well.. maybe...) To me, it just looks as though they're letting their natural hair colour grow out, they had no time to get their hair done, they're waiting for the next trend to come out before they damage their hair again, or dying is suddenly too expensive for their wallets.

Other ways to wear it: the ombre scarf you've probably also seen... I'm indifferent about it

Oh and it doesn't have to be done on the same thing either!
This paint job is considered ombre, too:
So yea - lots of ways to wear the runway trend without looking too outwardly try-so-hard trendy!

I usually talk about my human cousins. Meet my animal "cousin", Sadie. lol

She knows which side to take, warm, + leave hairs on (not my side!)
Loves her monkey! I mean.. bear... why do I keep calling it a monkey??
StttttrrrreeetttchhhhhhStaring intently........
So BLISSTHFUL after a good run ^^
She can barely keep her eyes open!
Yea she's an attention-seeker but she has a cute personality and is a good dog. Happy cousin.


Found a jackpot fashionblog. To me, a jackpot blog is one where I love all outfits (yea, every single one) and all of the pictures she chooses to share. I've been absorbing her pages for the past few hours.. and I still don't think I'm anywhere near done. Man she either must post a lot, or she must have started blogging since she was 15 or so! She's only 18 now, actually... Can't wait to show you in my next domain.. whenever that will be (well, hopefully sometime in December). Ah so inspiring! Great taste.

My ears have been SO COLD today!

I would say that I'm kind of obsessed with the whole "long 'n lean" bottom half look (not the twiggy look)... not just for me, but for everyone that I see.. especially in the winter.
Take this girl -- she's a perfect example of someone who can look short and stumpy but so tall and lean the next day.
Here is her "tall and lean" look - don't her legs look so slim?
(uh.. short much? gosh.. and then you see that a few days before, she wore the same outfit with a skirt and the cardi looks so short too lol)
But suddenly, she as thunder thighs.. or, just so disproportionate from her top half 'cause it's a lighter colour that it looks that big. I'm not against colourful bottoms, but in this case, I would carry the colour all the way down to her ankles and wear a heel 'cause the gray is like a thigh highlighter.. and hers aren't even that big.. but it looks so in this picture.
+ 50
And for this next picture, I was thinking, is it because of the angle of the picture?? How else could she have gained so much weight in the next picture? It probably is, partly, but I've decided it's more because of what she is wearing....
(I do like the top half of this next outfit).. I think she'd look a lot slimmer if she wore heels with this outfit.Anyway, not hating or anything. Maybe I'm crazy for noticing these insignificant things but that's what I notice on the streets. I like her and I kinda love some of her outfits (like the ones below) and she looks quite beautiful when she does profesh modelling and i'm super jealous of her full bangs - and I think it's so awesome possum that she's only 17 and just started outfit-blogging, but man can she gain and lose picture weight fast! ahha and if you think I'm the queen of neutral colours, i'm only a princess compared to her! She is the royal queen the first lol 'cause except for a couple accessories and that yellow moo-moo above, everything she owns is either black, white, or a shade of gray.
Anyway, waiting to see what Zipia will come out with tonight - 1 more hour!
