[ootd] winter wonderland backtrack

3 weeks into school already and I've had 4 snow days! It's a hassle to get to class in the weather, but it's really beautiful to look at. 

 Just last week I celebrated Chinese New Year with a group of friends and had so so so much fun. Had to wear red to be festive (unlike most people that night ;^;)

Winter break was stressful, relaxing and fulfilling all at the same time. One of my biggest achievements of the break and of this year was getting into my very first gallery show. 

Here's to 2014 and all that it may bring (late I know).

[ootd] fall is here.

It's fall in Brooklyn, getting cold, and I'm over 2 months in to the school year. Things are mighty hectic and I'm losing a lot of sleep, but I'm hanging in there. Here's my past 2 months in photos and [ootd]s.

Went to 2 concerts with the boyf, Local Natives  and The 1975. Each amazing in their own way, and the perfect way to forget about my stressful school life. 

One of my classes this year is drawing on location which means I get to get off campus to draw, for class! This was a lovely sunny day in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

Commence the [ootd]s, in which (in no order): 

I celebrate my 21st 
I go clubbing for the first time (and enjoyed it against my better judgement.)
I get my nose pierced

[ootd]: summer sunshine backtrack

Hello there interwebs, I am still alive, yes. I had a wonderful summer, traveling from place to place and soaking in (sometimes too much) sunshine.

I've been back at school for almost a month now, and I am suffocating under the work that I love doing. Seriously though, I thought last year was stressful......

I often reminisce of my summer and it brings a sense of ease to my very stressful days. 

Here are some ootd snippets, including cafe/library work-dates with besties, going to Pink Dot 2013 (FINALLY), and attending my brother's high school graduation :'>

ootd: may backtrack

It's been too long!! I've been catching up on sleep, art, friends and good Asian food at good Asian prices. Here is an outfit I wore towards the end of school, featuring a cute skirt I made for a photography class, using photo-collage to create a graphic pattern and finally getting that printed on cloth. Bianca taught me how to sew and patiently guided me through the process, I'm so grateful.

Unfortunately I left this in Brooklyn, so I can only admire it from here, from some 9,500 miles away....

[ootd:] potlucks & polka dots

Spring has finally arrived! I'm so sick of dressing for cold weather, so I had fun getting dressed today.

We had a potluck in class today and I made quiche for the first time! 

Today is one of those days where I feel like I'm really free, but I actually have a lot of work. Going to get on that now....

[ootd]: lollies & lilies

Went out with my roommates Emily and Bianca to do a photoshoot I promised them because they are both leaving next year T___T

They both own pretty pretty lolita dresses, but I don't lead such a kawaii life, so I had to borrow a dress and petticoat from Bianca and wedges from Emily. It was a cold day at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, but we had a lot of fun ^__^

ootd: winter wear

It has been so terribly cold as of late, with just a single day of unexpected warmth last week :(
