Omg I have so much to update on and I am so behind on outfit posts but I guess I’ll have to slowly get round to it. Updates are so not in sync with the days and I’m gonna be posting outfits from like a week ago but I guess slowly but surely!

So as I mentioned before, I graduated on May 18th at Radio City Music Hall. I thought I’d share some photos of this grand day and to reveal to the world me in a frumpy mumu. One of my friends said our gowns were reminiscent of Missy’s Garbage Bag get-up. I totally agree.

Me and my mom. Sha said she started crying as people started walking into the auditorium. People as in GUESTS not even the STUDENTS. haii so emotional hahaha

Me and nannies, midget-style.

Me and momo being silly as usual.

I’m der shit yo. (btw, wearing my H&M canvas wedges)

Pratt Institute Graduation at Radio City Music Hall, Class of 2009 (HELLZ YEZ)


Next was Sha’s graduation. Her school is weird and had a split up thing where she received her diploma in a department graduation where she didn’t even have to wear her gown. The gown was worn the next day at Madison Square Garden but none of the graduates walked up on stage. So…pointless of wearing a gown? Anyways this department graduation was help at her school, Parsons.

Zara maxi-dress, Gap x Pierre Hardy sandals, AA cardi, DIY studded bag, DIY bracelet, mom’s cheetah shopping bag.

Papz shot of Sha and her empty diploma holder.

Sha doing her grad walk really really fast over and over again.

Me and nanz.

Sha and Mom, wearing her new Rayban Wayfarers (even she’s cooler than me).

Really cool 3D typographic study at Parsons.


Remember ages ago when I gave you a sneakpeak at a DIY project I was working on? I FINALLY finished it. After starting the project in the beginning of March, I finally found the time and patience to get it over and done with..and I’m really happy with the results :D

I present you with my leather studded tote bag. I made the whole thing from scratch: sewing the leather tote, studding the whole bag using gold cone studs and even sewing the gold lining with an inner pocket. It took forever but I’m so glad I finished it. It’s kind of delicate..I’m scared the studs will fall out but hopefully it’ll be durable at least for a while.

Full view of the bag

The inner pocket.

I grabbed the closest thing to put in the pocket to show you guys the pocket incase it was camouflaged in all that gold wash.

Yep, that’s my armpit.

I love my new bag! Maybe it’s just the art student in me but I am extremely drawn to totebags and at first I was searching online for a pre-made leather totebag but couldn’t find one so I ended up sewing my own. I might end up just sewing leather totebags, without the studs, and selling them since it seems like such a hard product to find. The straps were a bit annoying to sew and the studding definitely gave me sore thumbs and pierced skin but in the end, it was all worth it cos I love my bag! What do you guys think?? Like like or hate hate?

  19. in response to your comment , yup that’s alexis – my faaavorite. your whole family is sooo adorable. and seriously, your tote too. i do agree that a leather totebag would have been cooooler though b/c i feel like studs on such a light bag would weigh down just the one side maybe? idk what i’m saying. haha
