Remember the charged up conversation between Jenny and her Headmistress?
Headmistress: Nobody does anything worth doing without a degree.
Jenny: Nobody does anything worth doing WITH a degree. No woman anyway.
Headmistress: So what I do isn't worth doing? Or what Miss Stubbs does, or Mrs Wilson, or any of us here? Because none of us would be here without a degree. You do realize that, don't you? And yes, of course studying is hard and boring..
Jenny: Boring!
Headmistress: I'm sorry? 
Jenny: Studying is hard and boring. Teaching is hard and boring. So, what you're telling me is to be bored, and then bored, and finally bored again, but this time for the rest of my life? This whole stupid country is bored! There's no life in it, or color, or fun! It's probably just as well the Russians are gonna drop a nuclear bomb on us any day now. So my choice is to do something hard and boring, or to marry my... Jew, and go to Paris and Rome and listen to jazz, and read, and eat good food in nice restaurants, and have fun! It's not enough to educate us anymore Ms. Walters. You've got to tell us why we're doing it.

As much as I want to gush about this movie, I will not.
I've done it too many times and it gets rather tedious.
And it has been several months since I've seen it hence the tedious gushing.
People and conversation.
Bellow is all that I'm going to eat tonight.
When you're a student, away from home, cooking a proper meal is the least of your worries.
Thai chicken rice porridge, add to that some local made beef pickle, cream cheese crackers and you're good.

Gee... Fall. 
There's a nip in the air. 
Socks, layers. I'm writing all that with a big grin on my face.
Tummy jiggle and such.
Gives me the electric twist and it kicks, and it kicks like a pony.
Like from the song, ' Electric twist ' by A Fine Frenzy.
Now go watch the video here
You might get the kick.
Be back with the mixtape I promised.
P.S - Big shout out to everyone and thank you for dropping by and all the lovely emails.

What would have been the key component that literally propelled SHOE-DOM?
A baffling thought, that. 
And if I ever get a chance to don the shoes from Balenciaga Fall 2010, 
I would glare at my shoes shouting..
" Balenciaga Autobot! Tranform and roll out! " Click. Clank. Clunk. 
And BOOM out rolls Optimus Prime. Trippy eh?
Is that possible? Its probable, owing to catastrophic lengths that innovation has led to.
Oh wait, since Optimus is all short and tiny here than his Balenciaga counterpart, the other scenario could be that Balenciaga Autobot is a Decepticon *ooooh* and is about to be blown to smithereens if you noticed the weapon aimed at that direction. 
Conclusion: Balenciaga + Decepticon = Wicked. 
This is the kind of narrative that SHOE DOM has led to, which is exactly what I'm talking about.

This is my shoe list, including the above.
The first two have been on the list for forever.
Excluding Celine here in the list.
Its obvious enough.
Pierre Hardy for GAP.

 Ferragamo RAINBOW Wedge.

The winged Vivienne Westwood for Melissa Sandal. Available in an array of colors.

Opening Ceremony Suede Boots

Balenciaga Sneakers.
Nevermind the price.
Winter's around the block and I'm gonna get me a nice pair of them ones haha.
Now I'm off to reading and noting again.

Here we go again.
Exhibitionism yeah?
Can I get a Yeah?
Went from one library to the other today.
Pretty much spent the whole day in T-H-E library. Reading. Writing. Noting.
Schoolwork. I even dressed the part no? If you look at me up there. Kicking the dirt pose. The Dalki bag. Then the mention of academia. And thats where the ugly starts on Monday.
On the clothes front, still quite warm but the layers have started. Bit by bit.

Alex Noriega's still my man.

I love thee, Charles Anastase.

AND 3.1 Phillip Lim

So I guess its pristinely clear that this is the aesthetic I tend to gravitate towards.
Amazing palette. Would you take the former or the latter?
And regarding the latter, I did wear something similar a few days back.
Improvising, hence a somewhat rather cheeky imitation.

I wasn't convinced with Rodarte though. At first. 
It was brown everywhere that the entire collection felt austerely brown.
So I got hoodwinked by my least favourite color ... BUT I wasn't prepared for this though.
They pretty much nailed it.

Below is the skirt I have been living in for the last three months or so.
Dubbed thee my 'lazy skirt' .. I could sleep in them. Thats a bad habit but I do.
Its more of an indulgence for me.
So does it give off the effect that I'm hanging upside down? Heh. I look a bit retarded no? 
Nevertheless. Tired of the monotony I guess. 
And look what I bought! I want to be cocooned in this forever.
Aaaand how cool are the elbow patches???

Saw them here and couldn't believe it when I saw the same thing at Zara. Do check out the site I linked.
Amazing street style and posting a few of my favourite ones from the same.

What I shot.

And I sort of just stared at it for what seemed like forever. Maybe its the color scheme. Hmmmm. Or the fact that what has been lying there sort of transformed into something else when you capture it on film. The many conclusions you come to when camping around with your cam no? 
And these.. 
They're like pupa! So if they were pupa, after the final metamorphosis, they will take flight suppose they're butterflies. I wasn't thinking moth. Nope. Aaaand I thought of all that after I shot these. I went as far as picturing them whizzing away. People do that right? 

And here I digress in all my masked glory. This was me today. If you guys were aware of Vogue's 90th anniversary and the huge masked ball event which was nothing short of the real deal... then you'll know where I was going with this because I happen to have a bag full of masks at the moment, safe-keeping it for a boy I adore who's planning to throw the same. I might be the one taking flight with all them feathers now. Perfect props now eh? 
Short post.
Next post I'm gonna make a mixtape for you guys! 
I miss audio cassettes.
