Yun Jo Ko Kate & Emilia Bariamova

I can't find much information about her but Yun Ju Ko Kate released her Graduate collection (London College of Fashion) in January. I love the second dress. The rest of her collection is nice but doesn't wow me as much as the second dress. Also seen on Fashion156.com

The dress looks 10 times better in the editorial on Fashion156 probably because you see the movement of the dress more. The background probably completes the look.

Make sure to check out the other collections as well. Some of them are really amazing.

Here are some:

This is part of Emilia Bariamova's Graduate collection, who is also from London College of Fashion. She's more into knits it seems.
I love the first one. Looks like a bookbag was knit directly onto her back.

Why are the fashion schools in London so f*ckin good?!??!

I keep my d*** in my pants, so I can point out what I want

Things I hoarded in the course of 2 days:Repetto Boots:
Imagine these without the elastic and with a laceup oxford look
(I'm retarded and I can't find a picture of them)
On sale for $129 at DEN

BCBG Runway dress:
I usually don't buy their clothes/shoes but it was on sale.
From the Fall/Winter 2007 Collection
The rest of the collection is ehhhh
But $69 to have saggy granny titties?

and more...
Pictures coming soon

$39 at Buffalo Exchange

$10 at some jewelry shop on Broadway

The BUST craft fair in Williamsberg was not as good as I thought it would be. I left sad and empty-handed. They ran out of goody bags too. I was so looking forward to it. They should sell goody bags on etsy. OH WAIT. no. I bought cupcakes. They were pretty good.

My first attempt at DIY

I spotted these amazing stilettos by Coppelia Pique on Missneira and immediately wanted them. I have no idea where to buy them and even if I did, I don't think I could afford them. Soooooo, I decided to try my first DIY. I will be working on these after I come back from Europe so I'll post pics then.

So after a 3 hour search on lace, black stilettos, and shoe making, I decided to take classes at the JCC. I haven't signed up yet but once I start working and everything settles down, this is number one on my to-do list.

Oh wait...they're all booked. Well, I could always drop computer science and go to FIT for accessory design. I wish...

But I love cultures on my head

After reading Nancy's blog, I decided that I MUST get a beret. I've seen them before on etsy but I was pretty negative in my balance (not that I'm much better now since I buy things like an alcoholic on a rampage. Yes I do love shopping more than a fat kid loves cake). There's something about the patterns on the beret that remind me of bacteria cultures...minus the icky-ness. So enough talk, and here are the pictures. I think I'll go for the polka dot one or the white one with blue embroidery. Oh and make sure to visit Nancy's blog (link up there). She has the cutest illustrations. I would post it here but I don't want to completely hijack her post.

So they do exist!

I was under this impression that craft shows were things that only West-coasters (and mid-westers) were allowed to have. Apparently, I was wrong! Yayyyyyy. So this Sunday, I'll drag myself out to brooklyn and attend this.
I've been to one other craft show and it was in Seoul, S. Korea. I bought a bunch of stuff that I probably shouldn't have but whatever. Ï just tell myself that I'm "supporting" the whole craft grass-root movement. You can see what I bought here. I really hope I don't forget to go again like I did with the Margiela Sample sale. I would punch myself if I weren't scared of pain.

To do:
1. Make a banner for this blog
2. Move back home (bye Rutgers *sad face*)
3. Pack for Europe (Anybody have ideas on where to visit?)
4. Buy a graduation dress

Before any of this, I have to cram for 2 finals tomorrow. KCUF

Images taken from http://www.chenmaner.com/

I found Chenman, a 20-year old photographer born and raised in Beijing, by chance while searching for a picture on google (I never found it). After tracing the links, I ended up at her website which is filled with amazing photography. Apparently she does everything herself, even the photoshop. That's some freakin talent right there.

Dayum those Koreans are fastttt

I'm embarrased to say that I want all their clothes. (evil smile)

Also, thanks Susie for linking my newly started blog. Now I have a reason to update more often O.O However, I'll keep in mind that this blog is purely for what I feel like writing and I will not succumb to the pressures of finding interesting things to write especially when most of my days consist of staring at my computer until my eyes feel like jellyfish.

Drapping just the right amount is exactly what she wanted

Normally when I browse through Etsy.com's handmade clothing, I get bored and switch over to the Toy or Vintage section. However, after stumbling upon ChiChi's Color Zone's store, I found myself speechless. I've seen so much drapping and layering this season and truthfully, it's starting to get boring. However, her looks seemed fresh and not so over the top. I could imagine myself wearing most of these pieces out. The last dress is definitely on my buy list. When my check comes, I'm ordering myself one. Btw, the prices are amazing.

I just found out by reading Susie's blog that this is actually a fraud. Well, I'm sure the clothes come to you but they are NOT handmade. They're actually made in some factory in China. Ug..this is so horrible. It caught me off guard since I actually messaged them and they asked for measurements. Why would they make it in a factory with actual measurements? How depressing. Sorry to all those who actually ordered things. I hope what you get is at least decent.
