How are the pictures relevant to Vampire Weekend's 'giving up the gun' video.. ??
1. Cause I was wearing this swoosh-y Nike windjammer? 
2. Sporty vibes and a bit of leg action there a la Jake Gyllenhaal?
3. The fact that this outfit should be given blog space because I wore it for 3 days straight till yesterday. But my friend has wobbly bobbly hands hence the crummy, fuzzy pictures but probably a good break from all the rooftop prancing which can get really monotonous and utterly boring. And posts could get sluggish for exams start this Friday but wait, posts were never really a-booming actually and it feels like I'm talking to myself and just trailing off so I'm gonna pop in this other AWESOME song/video by VIVIAN GIRLS. Enjoy (:

I may well be past my teenage years BUT I'm definitely a ROOKIE girl.
And I have not as yet got on the fall bandwagon as yet, no scratch that. Winter's here already and I'm actually sitting here looking all crisp in my leathaa' jackity-jack so instead of going on about winter-warlord wear, I wanted to share this - SCHOOL SPIRIT by Petra Collins via rookiemag

So blush baby blush when the sun goes down now.

As many angles as possible right? This was the other yellow score that I, um..scored along with the other yellowy polka dotty number a few posts ago. Sometimes, all it takes is a great dress. Really.

i-D the dreams and aspirations issue.

i-D has always been a favorite, a magazine that not only prioritizes fashion but youth and cultural issues and politicizing these different aspects together into creating something that can inspire and reform. I remember my sister getting her first copy when we were in schooand she was elated about it cause her sort of hero Agyness Deyn was on the cover because she has an affinity for androgyny and dr martens boots and such.. but the price for the magazine we have to shell out is more than stifling, or it could contribute to the fact that we even treasure it all the more because of that. This issue is so beautiful. The dreams and aspirations issue. Hence evident of why I would use 'beautiful' as an adjective to describe it. Featuring new bands that I love like CULTS, to be able to finally have an evidence of their existence on print and not wait for them to go mainstream because all the rihannas are clogging up too many pages. And 90s band SUEDE's Brett Anderson's interview was sort of nostalgia inducing again. Growing up, my older cousins would listen to them a lot, Pulp, Blur - that school of popular Britpop music at the time and I'm having these fuzzy flashbacks of when we were kids, running around the rooms and their songs literally reverberating throughout the house, especially the youtube video I've attached under the page picture I've taken of Brett's interview. Still one of my favourite songs. 
Referring to the first image up above is the article by Susan Corrigan with references to the recent English Riots, among other things, of a reconstitution in society with regard to our dreams and aspirations as members of a collective society was so endearing and thought-provoking and central to what i-D stands for as a magazine. AND onto something else unrelated though definitely does tally on the lines of nostalgia is the picture below, I was scrolling through old pictures so just popping this in..
This is me from 2007 outside McDonalds.

DOODLING AND MOOCHING around to these over the weekend.

The last song by CULTS was suggested by a reader.
Thanks Amanda!

I've been slipping on this slip with an array of tees, another one of em ' what-I've-been-wearing-a lot-as-of-late ' and despite the fact that I've sort of an aversion to sequins and such, I recently got these shoes and you can see it there all shimmery, which is actually not so bad. It's just a small dose right? Wouldn't hurt yeah? My cousin's yet to give em' a name which she's been doing a lot lately to every shoe I purchase. Now I'm off to reading a mountain of essays about culture and society for my presentation and an abstract paper to work on and exams in a month. VIBE-KILL.

I felt it was made for me when I saw this.
And the little bugger there is Carina, the 3-eyed Space Kitty, lent by artist Tara McPherson for the collaboration with Swatch which came along with the watch in this cute packaging. 
It's even more perfect cause it was a gift.
P.S Carina is sleeping right now.

Best Coast. That is all about pretty awesome American indie bands.
And YAY.. Drew Barrymore directed the first video and you haul in Kick-Ass fame Chloe Moretz and Alia Shawkat of Whip It fame and what do you get? Even more sheer awesomeness. I made some pointers
about the video for Our Deal.
1. Watching the video was like getting reminders from classics like The Outsiders.
2. Gangs, not to make typical brush offs like 'gangs are cool' or something but from its cinematographic aspect. So, take your pick kids, are you gonna go for NIGHT CREEPERS or DAY TROTTERS??
3. The modern day Romeo and Juliet subtext. I mean, you might as well haul in the Capulets and the Montagues.
4. COIFFED HAIR. They're apparently A-BOOMING.
SURELY you know what I mean. I've been trying to make copies on my hair.

We've got the whole gang-esque look here in tow.
I even sort of got weak in the knees when Romeo here died and Chloe saw the latter half of what he had sprayed onto the wall. Drew's talented direction skills were pretty evident and awesome-err on finding out Alia Shawkat was in the video too, after seeing her and Ms Barrymore working together on Whip It, one of my favorite 09' movies with Ellen Page. ROLLER DERBY. JULIETTE LEWIS. And you see, the lads below have been sporting the present 'THERE ARE FLECKS OF RAINBOW ON YOUR HAIR' rage. 

I WAS honestly confused about whether I should have..
1. Pulled the jeans a notch higher like in the second image or..
2. Leave it like it is in the first.
3. PANTS are not my forte, sort of hard to hold em' up when you have a teeny tiny frame so I prefer shorts and skirts including floor sweepers instead.

Been wearing this outfit a whole lot, mostly to school.
I think my Vans sort of.. douses out all that feline leopard ferocity yeah?
So this post would trickle down to the umm what I wear to school tag, complete with heavy backpack and all and sometimes heavy would owe to my water bottle and not really my books. Plus this has been one major outfit repeat this past month. And will proceed with layers when we get around to November I presume.

Some of my favorite things at the moment. I almost missed out on this book, I was about to give up my search when fate intervened I suppose? Muehehe. We've all had our divine feminist awakenings, mine in full throttle during college plus most of the texts we studied had to do a whole lot with women's issues and such. It was a good pounding, all of it. Girls go get your copy. AND this pencil's always on the go when I'm propped up with a book in my hand. Favorite M.A.C lippy-ty-stick at the moment, I get Megamind-happy when I wear this. And surprisingly my mum's as well as almost everyone's hygienic habit of carrying your average wet wipes has caught up with me though these are for ga-ga-gooey babies but aren't they all the same?
And since I was blabbering away about Murakami's books in the last post, these are most of the lot that i spent doodling and mooching around on recently. 

The illustrations on this recent publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland are pretty wicked, by Camille Rose Garcia and I did creepily stroke the jacket when I got it. And well, I guess you guys are all aware of my penchant for zombies. It has this battery powered sound module with ten different phrases and a huge 'B' that lets out the BRRAAIINS growl when you press it, a Zombarista where you order lattes .. I mean, SHIT! Right?? Scared my sister the other day when she was sleeping. 
New in. A dress I got at Saro for a little over a hundred bucks.

Its no small feat pretending to walk on the balcony..yeah? 
And the wind's throwing your dry tresses around and you're inclined to make a face.. refer to second image and for once I felt like I achieved a somewhat normal face stance in the last image.
This Led Zeppelin tee is really old, shuttles back and forth between me and my cousin who loves it as much as I do. And the other day I had soaked it with one of my bed sheets and now there are like faint peachy patches on it which is completely okay, I'll probably sport em till they have huge ass holes in em' .. Aaand we were laughing about how chubby my legs got..errm stumps would be appropriate. BTW, was downloading the movie, Norwegian Wood and IT IS DONE. 
One of the highlights of my summer holidays was reading Murakami's book ..of the same name, endless gushings of how epic and eerie and beautiful the book was and wanting to have Midori's name. I literally slept with the book for days after finishing and carrying it around in my backpack when venturing out. I read three more of his books after that and boy was Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World awesome. The whole Semiotecs and Calcutecs and INKlings and UNICORNS! And the chubby secretary in pink with the bulbous ass. You guys probably have no idea what I'm rambling about if you haven't read his books but please go do :)
>>>> OFF to watch Norwegian Wood - yupteedooo.
And that is Midori and Toru below.

I'm just gonna make this post about Hard-Fi.
And their sheer awesome sound..and the fact that they look like a bunch of bad-ass communists in the first video. The hair or maybe the fact that it reminds me of the movie, American History X..??
Happy Listening yeah? :) ..

Got a whiff of my dress? Yet? Haha.
Its pretty airy and spacious in there hence the gliding about.
You'd probably do the same.

I actually did the whole 'prop em' up/make em' lean this side and that' while taking these pictures.
I got an email that they would open shop soon in these parts and eventually forgot about that but oh boy I was not prepared for when I actually saw the actual Steve Madden store the other day, was the last thing in my head then BAM! My first ever Steve Madden shoes.. BooYAH. And so CHUNKY. Oooooooo.. I'm doing that with a total goofy, moron expression, like I'm Megamind or summin' and I adore Megamind, that blue-y klutz. I digress, and YES where were we.. I was cooking last night wearing em'..clunking about in the kitchen and thats..well.. all about shoe porn yeah? I am gonna kick some major collective ass in these so go getchu' some.
