What to Wear Daily: Red Lips

(YSL leather jacket, C&C California tank, Taverniti jeans, Marc Jacobs Collection mary janes)

I usually only wear really RED lipstick. I got to make the shade darker by simply putting chapstick on my lips and lightly smearing black eye liner before putting on my regular red lipstick. It gives it a darker color which I ended up really liking.

Shoe Collection: Velvety Rose

I love Marc Jacobs collection for Fall 2005. I few pairs of his shoes from that season. This is one of the pairs I could find right now (since I've moved so many times). They are a beautiful velvet with a rose made of ostrich leather. It's kinda crazy... The heel is relatively low so they are pretty comfy.

Here are a few pics from with the heels from that season:

One Year Anniversary.

I really didn't think I was going to be affected by the crisis going on... but I was. It's taking a lot longer than I thought. Everything is put on hold... and now it feels like I just don't know what to do. I try to be as optimistic as I can at times like this. I'm just glad I still have my job, of course.

But anyways, the reason for this post is because, it's officially one year and a day from when I started this blog. My original first post definitely show my optimism. Everything will roll again soon. You just gotta fall a few times until you can get where you really want. But in the meantime, I'm enjoying life in SF. (:

What I Want: Elephant Pin

When I saw this elephant pin at La Rosa in the Haight, I knew I was in love. I love any kind of accessory to has animals on it. This particular one has amazing details, but I wasn't willing to cough up the $250 bucks on this bad boy. I'm so bad with losing and misplacing jewelry, I could allow myself to spend that much.

What to Wear Daily: Spring Time

(H&M mustard cardi, Targt blue skinny belt, Anna Sui dress, Marc Jacobs Collection crochet pumps)

I bought these pumps many years ago for my 21st birthday. I always get myself my favorite pair of Spring/Summer shoes every year. (:

The weather has been a lot nicer during the day in SF, but the nights seem to be so much colder.

What I want: Defina Delettrez Fendi Rings

I love Defina's jewelry! I can't believe I didn't know about her earlier. At the tender age of 20, she has made 3 collections in just 11 months. She is the daughter of Silvia Fendi (4th generation) and daughter of jeweller Bernard Delettrez.

I love how she has a subtle way with little details. The first ring is a beautiful way of being rock n roll (with the skulls) but so classy at the same time.

Too bad it's so pricey... I would definitely want to start collecting her designs.

What to Wear Daily: Marimekko

(A tribute to Marimekko high-waisted skirt from H&M, black turtleneck, Pilgrim necklace, Ann Demeulemeester boots)

I love this skirt, but I wish it wasn't so long.

I was forced to transfer to another location at my work that is in the 'burbs. It's a little rough transitioning to working downtown, where the bums run wide... and then go to young twenty-somethings with strollers in Uggs.
I really don't know which is worse. Hope everyone is having a good St. Patty's Day weekend. I just came back from the Mission and it was intense and green everywhere.

What to Wear Daily: Shopping Outfit

(Marc Jacobs Collection jacket, organic white tee, Diesel black jeans, Ann Demeulemeester boots)

These shoes are the most comfortable things I own with a heel. I have to buy Ann D. shoes more often! I also love these jeans so much I own 2 pair.

What to Wear Daily: Out

(Chanel cashmere tweed jacket, Diesel skinny jeans, Marc Jacobs Collection shoes)

I can't help but always look conservative when I go out with my friends.

What to Wear Daily: Fierce shoulders

(Tom Ford for YSL leather jacket, Moschino Jeans fish tail skirt, Alberta Ferretti studded shoes/DKNY patent leather pumps)

This jacket is made of the thinnest delicate leather I've ever felt. Seriously, sometimes I'm afraid that it will get caught on something and rip. The details are amazing on the jacket too. There are small squares that align the bottom of the jacket to way down the leather because it is so light weight. I love the broad

My co-workers said I looked like a futuristic super hero. Haha.

Balmain is like Tom Ford for YSL?

I know everyone is obsessed with the Balmain jackets, especially the military ones with the modern shoulders...

But I can' help but remember Tom Ford's last collection for YSL for Fall 2004. Extremely similar...
