i wrote another LONNGG entry, and it got deleted AGAIN...
maybe this is sign not to put off my entries for so long, then have it accumulate and have to write a huge entry and then have it deleted.
so long story short, i got 2nd place in the optimist power of youth essay contest this week. i got a metal, certificate, and $25 barnes & noble gift card YAY
so here are my outfits for the past week or so :/
sor ry for the bad cellhpone quality :/
i havent worn this out yet, but i will!
YAY!! my first DIY shredded shirt. it was a success, except that i used my dad's old shirt and didnt take into consideration that it would get bigger as i shredded it. SO next time, i'll pick a smalelr shirt so i wont have to safety pin it :]
such an unflattering picture :/ but the outfit was suuper comfy :]
can u see what they're jumping for??
quite a boring outfit, just wanted to wear my neglected purple pants again. it wasnt a success D:
photographer: my brother
the cherry blossoms were too beautiful to pass up. this was one of the most comfortable outfits i've ever worn.
i promise to post daily now! i dont like the accumulated posts much either.

so when i don't blog for oh so long, i kinda go overboard and post multiple times a day.
i found this quiz on http://cherrymagazine.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2008-10-22T21%3A41%3A00%2B08%3A00&max-results=7 when i was flipping through her past blog entries. so i shamefully stole it (if you're reading this, i hope you dont mind!) and here it is:
1. Where do you go to school? (which country, what course, etc.)
Mayfair High School in the U.S., its a high school so i'm just taking all the advanced classes:
- Alg. 2 Honors
- Adacemy English 10
- AP World History
- Driver's Ed
- Tennis/ P.E. (each are a semester long)
- Driver's Ed
- Tennis/ P.E. (each are a semester long)
2. Where do you shop most? (Shop and directions/address)
hmmm mainly forever21, H&M, macy's, urban outfitters, pacsun, and a few local stores. i'd like to visit some nice thrift stores but i havent looked around yet. but i love to look for inspiration on blogs, chictopia, lookbook, and designers like alexander wang and balmain.
3. Which band/singer do you listen to the most? Why?
lately i havent been looking into a lot of music... though i do download some songs from www.community.livejournal.com/cpop. i like adele, alan, coldplay, dir en grey, emily haines, feist, high and mighty color, jade, l'arc en ciel, mika nakashima, paramore, search the city, se7en, the sophomore attempt, tokyo rose, sunset shootout, and tegan and sara. actually i like most of whatever music people throw at me, with the exception of rap and most country. so my music taste is quite varied, alternative american music, french, japanese, and chinese.
4. What do you often do in your free time?
i love to search for inspiring blogs. i can spend hours on http://www.polyvore.com/, http://www.lookbook.nu/, and http://www.chictopia.com/ to name a couple. but spending time with my friends is always one of the best things ever. usually at someone's house, like keenu, lea, or melinda. its the most relaxing, but fun things to do. the beach is really lovely as well. i love strolling the shore at night when there's a bit of a chill and getting ice cream, but i havent done that in a while. i wish i had more events and places to go so i could wear out all of my outfit ideas that are trapped inside my head and driving me insane as they keep me up and prevent sleep from taking me when its night.
so i started playing around with the new slub trapeze tank i got from forever21, some 'wetlook' leggings from forever21, and plain black leggings from target, as well as a navy-colored cardigan i've had from kohls.
yay or nay for the wetlook leggings? which are better, plain black or shiny black?
i actually didnt like the wetlook leggings or plain leggings for a while, but lately i've developed a fond love for them. so i picked up a pair of each this weekend, yet now i dont know if i should keep both... the plain black are so so comfortable i love them. target for $6.99 o.o target you are amazing, i might just buy another pair to wear around the house. forever21 wetlook leggings for $17.99, and trapeze tank for $13.80.
if i decide to return the wetlook leggings, i'm thinking of exchanging it for this sort of 'acid-wash' brown asymetrical cut vest or a cream vest thats also sort of asymetrically cut. sadly pictures arent up on the website just yet, but i'll post them when they are.
also i found some old jazz dance shoes from a couple years ago, i'm thinking of turning them into daily-wear shoes but my mom says that the soles arent made for continuous daily wear :( what do you guys think? not that many people read this blog... :/
 i forgot to add, i'm planning to make a pair of bleached jeans from a old-ish pair of jeans i've had and havent really worn recently. along with that probably another shredded t-shirt or tank top, i love how much more detail it adds to an outfit.
and i'm on a search for a leather jacket! i'm quite tempted by this corset bra from urbanoutfitters, that rumi of www. fashiontoast.blogspot.com has, and the kimchi blue horizon mohair cardigan too. hopefully i'll be selling fragilesilencer of LJ my hot pink plaid pleated SDL punk skirt ^____^ i'm hoping it'll all work out! by the way, sugar-tick if you're reading this, did you get my e-mail?
