sick, sick, sick

Had quite the "swine-flu-scare" this weekend, but it turned out to be just another stupid seasonal cold. Its it wrong that I sound almost disappointed by the fact that I don't have the swine flu. However, there is something that is worthy of a scare though; spending your fall without an awesome acid-wash denim jacket. I've got mine!

The circle scarf makes me look like I'm wearing a neck-brace but at least my neck will be warm and I'll cough less.

I started knitting this week because I want a green scarf and am too cheap to buy one . So far my knitting project is coming along slowly and with much struggle. Will update the progress in a couple of days.
I felt like wearing something loose and comfortable today, so I draped myself with a super soft, long tee and an old-lady beige cardigan.

Cute Salvation Army shoes!

Fear and Loathing In Mahwah, NJ

Went to see Titus Andronicus on Wednesday and their awesomeness gave me a brain aneurysm. Good thing I wore my giraffe shirt, cuz you know...sometimes giraffe shirts can save a damaged brain.

home is never far away

Hello all, in case you didn't know I was just in China for three amazing weeks and it was one of the best times in my life. Having lived there until I was 12 really made this trip special because not only did I get to see my family, I also got to revisit some childhood places which brought back many fond memories of yesteryear. Let me just say that for the record, if any of you fashion lovers were to visit mainland China, Yunnan province is definitely worth a trip. Because not only are the cities beautiful but also the people of Kunming (capital of Yunnan, also the place of my birth) are definitely one of the most innovative and fashion-forward bunch when it comes to dressing themselves. While in Kunming, I scoped out the city for the trendiest shopping districts and found some pretty interesting Chinese hipsters hang outs. I went a little nuts with shopping and definitely went over my budget during my visit, but I picked up numerous gems, each around the average price of $15 Canadian so I guess it's all good in the end.

I gotta give credit to Isabel from Hipster Musings for this outfit because she totally inspired me to break out my polka dot shirt and wear it with pride. Thank you, Isabel!

These shoes are totally amazing and I bought them for $ 120 RMB (about $20 Can.)

I also got new two pairs of Enid-looking glasses over there; both for $ 100 Canadian...pretty fucking stoked.
