The Winding Road

20 Sep

I always enjoy getting away from the city.

Even if it’s just a scenic drive through the Angeles National Forest, I love sightseeing. The worries of so many yesterdays melt away as I absorb the beauty of my surroundings.

Life is full of twists and turns and the path to achieving your dreams isn’t always straight. Sometimes, you have to take the longer way, a way that seems to veer away from your intended goal. But having a great set of friends makes things so much better.

As for the changing seasons, I’m starting to feel it. The sun goes down earlier, the wind chill is picking up, and people are pulling out sweaters, scarves, and boots.

LA seasons aren’t as dynamic as other places, but it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy cold weather gear. I can’t wait to bust out the heavier coats and jackets as I fully intend to take advantage of the crisp autumn air.

Right now, I’m obsessed with biker boots.

I got a cheap pair from Forever 21 and I’ve been trying to wear them as much as possible. Some may say it hits at an awkward length and it can make you look shorter, but I don’t care. To me, it’s awesome.

Biker Chic?

18 Sep

Lately, I’ve been indulging in some Korean media…watching KDrama, listening to KPop, reading Kpop blogs, and eating KBBQ/Soondubu. After all this Korean influence, it’s slowing affecting my wardrobe choices. I don’t mind because Korean women have great style.

But none as strong as BoA in the “Energetic” video. I’m drawn to the white moto top with the diamond studded corset. I know she’s going for the whole b-girl look  but personally, I wouldn’t wear harem pants or the winged sneakers of Apollo.

I am so in love with that white moto vest/top…I had to get it. Instead of a leather motorcycle or biker jacket, I got the Pencey cropped silk moto vest that still says “rocker” without the bulkiness. Perhaps it’s better for my frame to have something less bulky than a leather jacket.

I’ve been looking for a great leather jacket, but it always overwhelms my frame and makes me look disproportionate. After countless fittings from Forever 21, H&M, Zara, Express, Urban Outfitters, and the like, nothing  looked good on me. From regular jackets, to cropped versions and vests, I haven’t yet found anything as great as the Pencey vest. Although I’m sticking with the biker chick style, I’m changing the material to silk so that it looks better on me.

By the way, I got this vest in August, so it doesn’t count for September’s shopping budget.
