Hello everyone! Ahgi know, I know… ( ；´Д｀) it’s been a while! Please don’t hate me! ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=┌(;￣◇￣)┘I’ve been so busy, which is really good! The beginning of this month was very rough, and I panicked! But thankfully I was able to book a whole lot of work on top of my normal job, and with any spare time I’ve had I’ve just been working on cosplay stuff… (Anime Expo is in 15 days!?) I’m finished with everything except the chobits cosplay (which I am making both chii and freya for… ) I’m stressed but a big project I was going to do this summer has been cancelled so I’m actually relieved ! One door closes, and others open, it’s life! (And I won’t have to neglect my blog for a month straight!) I have a few other new blog posts coming up this week so stay tuned!
Anyways! I’ve been wanting to share this outfit for awhile! I’m soooo in love with my new Le Bunny Bleu Shoes! (thanks again you guys!) I just love pastels so much and their entire shoe line is almost all pastels!! so I was so ecstatic when I got these babies in the mail! I love how they sort of remind me of cute heeled flats from the 80s, they are so perfect! I also got this wonderful skirt from Sheinside.com it’s so perfect for summer in LA! I reall like wearing sweaters with skirts or sweaters, and this cut makes this heavier material a lot more breathable. I do admit I get strange looks from some people when I walk around in this skirt, but I don’t care haha, I think it’s awesome! Oh! And I picked up this awesome sweater from bearcat LA and I just keep getting so many compliments on it, that heart elbow patch just catches everyone’s eyes!
Well I hope you all enjoyed my post! I promise to do another thurs or Friday! hope everyone has been wonderful!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had to work extra hard this weekend ヽ(；▽；)ノ I had 3 shoots I had to style while simultaneously working 2 days of the weekend (I count Friday) and then I had to diligently work on cosplay stuff when I got home >.< I really want to be mostly done by the 6th! Ugh and a lot of computer problems as well this weekend... Not a good thing!
Either way, I'm waiting on some photos for things to share with you and as well as a few publications my styling work is featured in ( I have like 5 or 6 I need to share/waiting on to come out) so lots of content indeed coming up!
Anyways, about this post. I've been following Claudia's work for awhile now, ever since she shot my friend Rihanna in Mexico, I have been in love! The only thing is, is that she is based in the mid west (＞人＜;) so it was close to impossible to arrange a shoot. Finally she had a job out here and was able to stay for 3 days! So we for sure made a plan to shoot! The only problem was, neither of us had a car （−＿−；) so I asked Scott what he was doing that day, and he decided he would also shoot and we could all go to a great location! So it was me, Claudia, Scott, Lorena (princess Lorena! ) and Lucy (Lorena's beautiful mother) and we all drove up to Vasquez rocks! (Which is where Star Trek was filmed!) so. Had the responsibility of styling two shoots, and still making sure everything went alright for Scott's shoot >.< it was of course a hot day, so we brought lots of water and tried our best to be hydrated! Me and Claudia bonded a lot over nerdy things like video games and comic books! It's really nice when you can nerd out with other girls, especially when they are the same flavor of nerdy ☆〜（ゝ。∂） hehehe.
For the clothing I wanted to do so wing kind of contrasting to the landscape, but still makes sense? So I took most of my style inspiration from the film " Walk About " (which is basically about a teenager girl and her kid brother getting stranded in the middle of the Outback (and they are in their school uniforms) and they have to fend for themselves until a teenage aborigine boy finds them and helps them survive). The colors are very primary to add to that "school girl" look, but I think it's kind of French as well. Kind of funny, but I've been listening to Iggy Azaleas Track "Work" and that lyric came into my head, and I think it's perfect since she is from Australia too (and it's descriptive to her being in Australia) .
So yeah! I hope you all liked my post! Hope it wasn't too much text :p

How are you all doing this week? Was your Memorial Day weekend good? Get a tan? Eat some BBQ? Get intoxicated and go swimming? (Smartest combo ever) haha I didn’t do any of those things >.< . I actually stayed in all weekend and worked very diligently on cosplay stuff for AX 2013! I am actually almost done! But yesterday, that all changed, lol. My friend Allison H. and are going to instead be doing a cosplay from “Chobits” ( Allison being Chii/Elda and I being Freya) . IM SO EXCITED GUYS! But I only have 35 days to do both cosplays and finish up mine! ヽ(；▽；)ノ haha I can do it! So many photos to ensue for sure!
Anyways, on to my actual blog post! If you have been reading m blog from the past few months, Creature of Habit is nothing foreign to you. If not, I’ll tell you a little about it! Each piece is hand made from the beautiful and talented, Vanessa Walton. She has a great passion for everything pretty, ethereal and fantasy. I think it shows pretty well in her designs! I was asked to model for her spring lookbook a few months ago, and I couldn’t be more excited! This was right up my alley! I also got to meet/ hang out with/ model with Chloe Dykstra! (I’ve been E-Stalking her for the past 2 years haha) she was every bit of nerdy, beautiful and fun as I expected! And she was very kind yet confident too! Modeling with her in these photos were a lot of laughs! (As you can see in some photos) it was a really nice set! Not to mention it was Chloe’s idea to do a “lolita” theme and I freaking love lolita ! \(//∇//)\. If you haven’t checked out Vanessa’s shop, you should do so Now! and check out my other posts on Creature of habit as well!
(Feels good to finally post all the photos I wanted to for this lookbook! Summer creature of habit lookbook coming up soon! )
Also! I got great news yesterday that I was featured on Teen Vogue for beauty Yesterday!

Hello everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute, and I’m sorry (T ^ T) I’ve been really sick since Friday! Today I finally feel a little better! (I had to work so I didn’t give my body much rest!) so when I’m home, I try to stay in bed…
Anyways! You know how I told you about my new job? My good friend Sylvia and her boyfriend Francis (pictured above) decided to come visit me and take some photos in the shop! So I took a quick lunch break and Sylvia took some beautiful photos of Heirloom Vintage ! My boss, Masa Ono, has amazing style and taste and I think it really translates well in the way he decorated the place ! I love the Americana feel to it (I’m always playing western music in the place haha) and it just feels very comfortable.
Also! This was my first time meeting Francis! I’ve been shooting with Sylvia for awhile and she would always talk about him and show me pictures, so it was great to finally meet! They are such a cuuuuute couple! I mean not in a sappy kind of way, but the compliment eachother so well, and it’s like they are always on the same page, idk I think that’s pretty cool! And they both are really artistic and have great style! You should check out his blog! He does great menswear fashion!
Also! I was just featured in the New Cosmo Girl Indonesia!
It’s in Indonesia, so I’m sorry but it’s still pretty awesome! I was so excited to receive it in the mail! Thanks again Cosmo Girl for featuring me!
Anyways I hope you all are having a great week! For my cosplay readers, it’s fanime this weekend and I’m sad I can’t go but for those of you going have a grand ol time!

“How do you like it? How do you like it? ” hahah sorry! That song has been stuck in my head all week! How has y’all’s weeks been? Mine has been very hectic, working at the vintage store is so wonderful! It keeps me so motivated to continue to do stuff when I’m not working! I’ve also had a really important meeting this week about something big! I’ll be able to tell you all later about that ☆〜（ゝ。∂） ! I’ve been also working a lot more on cosplay stuff! Which is exciting, I’m really honing my craft as a designer I feel like!
Anyways, on to my outfit! The precious Sylvia and her awesome boyfriend Kenny, stopped by the shop on Tuesday and spent a lot of time there keeping me company! We decided to take a few photos on my lunch break in and outside the shop! (Indoor ones coming soon!) I think they turned out so uber cute! I got this dress from Jet Rag Vintages 1$ Sunday Pile sales. (I get there early and wait for them to open new vintage and fight for the good stuff!) I was so happy when I got this! It was quite long, so I altered the hem to make it a baby doll and I really love the turn out! The trim and color is so feminine and amazing! Also my mom gave me these new adorable glasses that will pretty much go with EVERYTHING. In my wardrobe! I was so happy when I received them! And I think the glasses and the dress are the perfect pair!
Well I hope you all have a great Thursday! I have to clean my loft and continue to work on cosplay stuff! Talk to you soon!
