Sneaking Around//Blogger Award!

Ok. So I admit that I didn't join the masses on Black Friday (well, does buying a bento box at a Japanese store count?), nor did I log on for Cyber Monday. But! I did participate in Zoya's Green Friday - on Thursday.

Aparently green is THE color for me at the moment; cause look what I found!! A 100% silk green blazer with AMAZING big bold shoulders for....$4. Yes. It was originally $8. Got it for 50% off. Love life.

  • Silk Blazer: Vintage!
  • Leggings: ??
  • Tee: boyfriends/Haynes
  • Mobius scarf: AA
  • Flats: wal-mart
  • Cap: Zara
  • Bag: 9 west
  • Nails: YSL Tuxedo Gray (it's shimmery...ish. With lovely silver dust in it! and applies like a dream. That's one coat!!)

Thank you so much from Jeni Wren at JeniWren.com for my Honest Scrap Award!
10 Honest things about myself:

1. I am ethnically mixed. And I change up my ethnicity every time someone asks. Today I was Costa Rican.

2. I have severe shoppers remorse. I will buy something and then stash in my closet for a week. However, I didn't have that problem with my Prada's. (nor with my Flowerbomb, YSL polish, or...)

3. I LOVE my curly hair. It sometimes bothers me when people ask if I straighten it.

4. I like Heidi Montag. No explanation offered.

5. Every time I head into San Francisco, I feel like I have to get dressed up. Dunno why.

6. I love to travel! Esp. alone. I love the independence, and the thrill of meeting people along the way. I once hung out with a Rugby team in the south of France. Unforgettable.

7. I'm not sure if I want to be married.

8. Every Saturday I go to Petco, and play with all the kitties. I think it makes my guinea pig a little jealous. His name is Sir Francis Lots O' Puff. The boyfriend calls him Scarface.

9. I love to jog.

10. Dream job? Buyer/Fashion PR/Curator of sorts/ and living a bi-coastal/bi-country lifestyle.

  4. That silk blazer is off the charts. I just read an article about Lisa Bonet's fashion when she was on The Cosby Show, and it almost harkens back to that—which, by the way, is a huge compliment :]

    I relate to your questionnaire response #1. I'm part Japanese but I will say whatever fits my mood.

  5. Gorgeous blazer. The color is incredible on you!! And your nails look so pretty too!
    Congrats on the award. You totally deserve it!

  6. I got a jacket exactly like that only in purple for three euro yesterday...was proper blown away cause I just love bargains...anyways I still prefer the colour and the texture of yours (and the fact that its vintage is an added bonus) and the pieces you paired it with were perfect :)

    Spreading the love!

    Do you mind me asking if your nails are real? Cos I love how they are cut straight across, and wondered if they are real, how you keep them in such perfect shape?
