I love the eclecticism and darkness of her place.  The use of dark paint on her walls (I can't tell if it's black or what) is stellar and did you notice that incredible bookcase wallpaper in the left corner of the top pic?  Everything about her house is too, too cool.  I'd move in there in a hot second.  She really has inspired me to do some redecorating.

Some inspirations

An odd mixture of styles but that's the way it goes in my world.  I like a little dichotomy in my clothing choices.

The menswear detailing makes this outfit pop.  I, of course, especially love the shoes.  Who doesn't want a closed toe gladiator leopard print flat in their life??

Why I Love Kpop (It's All Rain's Fault)

So for the past year I’ve been kind of obsessed with something. Obsessed in a good way, of course. That “thing” would be Kpop. I know…I know… You’re thinking either, “What the hell is Kpop??” or “Why would you be interested in all of that? You can’t even understand what they’re saying!” Well, let me tell you why and how I fell into that obsession and why it continues to this day.

Really, it all started with a man named Rain. In June of last year I finally decided to watch the movie Ninja Assassin. I love martial arts movies and movies with great special effects and gore and this one promised to have it all, AND it was done by the Wachowski brothers. What more could I ask for? I’d missed it in the movie theater and had kind of forgotten about it. I had no idea who this guy Rain was and, actually, I’d been kind of scoffing at the fact that he used the word “rain” as his name. Anyway, I proceeded to watch. It was bloody, gory and had tons of martial arts… then this Rain guy showed up:

South Korean Sensation Rain Enters Military as Hundreds of Fans Bid Him Farewell


10/11/2011 by Sofia M. Fernandez, Lee Hyo-won

The pop singer-actor’s latest film, Soar Into the Sun, will be released in 2012.

Is Rain the South Korean Elvis?
It certainly seemed so by the turnout of hundreds of fans in Seoul Tuesday that came to bid the singer-actor farewell as he entered military service.
Like Elvis, who served two years in the U.S. Army, Rain will be an active-duty solder for the same amount of time with South Korea's Uijeongbu 306 Reserve Battalion.
Military service is mandatory for all able-bodied South Korean men. Artist who have tried to avoid duty, have suffered career backlashes, reports the BBC.
Rain will be off the public radar for the next two years, but fans will be able to watch him in military action through his air force movie, Soar Into the Sun. In Soar, Jung Ji-hoon – Rain’s real name, which he prefers to use for acting projects – plays a talented yet troublemaking elite air force pilot who is demoted to the combat flying unit. There he meets new friends, rivals and love interest, and is put to the ultimate test when he ventures into enemy territory.
The star told reporters at the Busan Film Festival press conference for the project last week that he feels like he got an intense preview of military life through the film, for which production wrapped last month for a 2012 release. “I experienced seven months of life in the barracks while shooting the movie. It was painful not being able to eat whenever I wanted,” he said, adding that he almost fainted while undergoing the actual gravity test for pilots.
Directed by Kim Dong-hoon, Soar marks Rain’s second homespun movie since his big screen debut, I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK (2006) by Park Chan-wook. Hollywood ventures on Rain’s resume include the Wachowskis' Speed Racer and Ninja Assassin.

I have to say, I’m all for articles about Rain being published in American news sources but come on now… he goes into the military and all of a sudden everyone jumps on the bandwagon?  I’ve seen a bajillion (the exact amount) articles about him going into the military in the past few days.  Where were they when he was out and about doing stuff on the daily?  I’m just happy they mentioned Speed Racer AND Ninja Assassin because a few other sources that I saw didn’t bother.  They didn’t even mention here that 20,000 fans came out to see him at his last free street concert.  BTW, who else just does a 2 hour concert in the street??  Love him…

Anyway, he will be missed!

Some more of that boho/neosoul goodness

Here’s another blog that I’m really enjoying.  This girl has incredible style.  Her name is Shana Bea.

Love it! 

Here’s what she has to say on here blog about being stylish vs. fashionable:
"I’ve come to the conclusion that there are two different types of people that are into fashion. You have those people who are stylish, and then you have those people who are fashionable. I am going to explain the difference today.
A stylish person is someone who can do any and everything when it comes to fashion. They have a style that is their own, that other people try and copy. Stylish people do not care about the price of a garment, but how they feel when they are wearing what they like. When you have style, it’s something that represents who YOU are. You dress to fit your emotions when you wake up in the morning, not to go out and try to impress. Stylish people do what they want to do, how they want to do it, when they want to do it. Let me give a few examples of some stylish people, who don’t try hard to have style, they just do!"

Totally agree, don’t you?
I love the whole updated 80s/Kid n Play/90s/Lisa Bonet/A Different World vibe that many New York teens and twenty-somethings are rocking now.  So if you threw away your super oversized cardi or your harem pants from back in the day, just remember: everything comes back sometime.

Guess who’s style I also love??

Solange Knowles… Her updated boho/neo-soul style really floats my boat.  Fun and funky prints, bright pops of color, ethnic accents, big (or small) fro and great shoes.  What more could you ask for?

G-Dragon Caught Smoking Pot?



I've been reading about this since yesterday and I feel bad for GD but I'm not quite believing the story YG has put out there.  I'm really sad that he got caught and that his comeback will be postponed indefinitely.  After reading other articles, I saw that GD has not be blacklisted, which is awesome.  I was pretty worried about that.  Who knows when he'll get to comeback, as well as go to Japan for GD + TOP's Japanese comeback. 
GD fighting!


YG Entertainment apologizes on behalf of G-Dragon

Got to start somewhere...

For the past two years I've been talking about, thinking about starting a blog.  Here I am finally doing it.  I know, right?  Talk about procrastination.  If someone wrote a song about procrastination, it should probably be my life's theme song (only if it's a good song, of course).

Well... I didn't find a song but I did find this:
