Bow Ties

My brother in a tailored dress shirt, tailored pants, pointy shoes from Traffic (i believe), and the blue bow tie I bought in the department store.

Ok, these sketches aren't as awesome as the photos themselves from the book but I fell in love with them so I just had to draw them so as not to forget what they look like.

Forgive me for not scanning, my scanner is broken :|

The book that I fell in love with on the second day of school

So I went to school early to recheck the awesome library that we have... On the first shelves...I D.I.E.D... TOM FORD AND BALENCIAGA BOOKS!!!!!!!! I fell in love with the Balenciaga book and I loved some pieces that I decided to take photos and sketch some dresses!!!

I have gone gaga over that book.. Now, if only I could take that huge book home... (hmmmm....) =))

All photos came from the book Balenciaga.

Dr. Martens

Look carefully at those Dr. Martens (In the first "box") that the girl, Jun Di is wearing

And in this one as well, I loved how she wore the Docs with her school uniform which is also awesome! (last photo, lower right)
Agyness Deyn wearing Dr. Martens as well

I just can't help but notice(AND count) how many Dr. Martens does Agyness Deyn have? She's got different kinds of color!!!! And I am loving how she wears it.

I remember during the 90's (when I was young. really young like 6 or 9) that in Rustan's there was a rack/section filled with Dr. Martens.

I hated it. I didn't like how big it looks on someone else's feet. I thought they were HIDEOUS... That was THEN...Now it's different.

My craving for Dr. Martens just began recently... I went into my mom's room and she was watching some Korean series entitled "Boys Over Flowers". I instantly got hooked because of the clothes that they wore. I then noticed the shoes that the lead actress Jun Di was wearing. She didn't just wear the shoes, she wore them with STYLE!!! :))

Then I remember seeing LOADS of photos of Agyness Deyn wearing Dr. Martens... These two people Jun Di(fiction name) and Agyness Deyn made me want to wear DR. MARTENS :))

I want my own Dr. Martens...I hope I can find one here in the Philippines

I Screwed Up :|

Garance Dore's illustration

My Garance Dore version illustration

I was inspired by one of Garance Dore's illustrations and so I tried to make a version of mine.

I drew it last May 10,2009 and today I tried putting on colors using my Kurecolor markers...and I'm hating myself for doing that coz I screwed it up:|

I shall post the "screwed up" version of my illustration. I am warning you that it is sooo screwed up that it looks hideous. I am also NOT very good at using Kurecolor markers. I have given you a warning and you shall see the "screwed up version once I am done screwing it =))

If you would like to see Garance Dore's other illustrations AND STREET PHOTOS... click here

Just so you'd know Garance Dore is/was (I don't really know the current news) the girlfriend of Scott Shumann also known as THE SARTORIALIST click here if you'd like to see his AMAZING photos.

I am a fan of theirs and I read their blogs and check them out everyday :))

Credit Crunch

That's me. Trying out a longboard.... kidding. That chick is too sexy to be me:))

Ever had the experience of having your hands tied behind your back? (no, not literaly LOLS)

What I meant was wanting to do something but you can't because of some inexplainable reason :|

Ok, my problem is having no money when it is time for me to buy lots of things. When my pocket was "full" I didn't want anything, but when I had a looooooonnnnnggggg list of what I want to buy...all of a sudden, everything in my wallet vanishes.

Why o why cruel world should you take my money away from me when I need it the most?!?!

Not long ago that I created a list of things to buy once I have graduated High School... I now regret doing that. I am broke, my hands are all tied up(not literally mind you), and I AM FLAT OUT BROKE:((

I need to look for an income. But school is coming up and it is just not right to look for a summer job anymore. So I will stay broke, be patient, and know that money will come back to me just like a boomerang.

I will get that longboard that I have been "craving" on and (seriously) dreamed of for 2 straight days...
