Céline Spring 2011

I’ve seen this Celine luggage tote around so much lately that I’m becoming quite enamored with it. It looks like a really heavy bag though, which goes against my preference for function before form. From an aesthetics point of view, I hate the feel of this campaign, since I think intentionally going for the washed-out, grainy textured look of the photos really displeases me.

Fungus Workshop

There’s a place in Hong Kong called the “Fungus Workshop” and it’s basically a leather workshop where you pay money for a certain number of sessions and you make whatever you can/want to with the materials they provide. The people who attend make some amaaaaazing ish. I wish I lived in Hong Kong.

Go check out their blog for a whole bunch of photos of things their students have made.

New things

I’ll pretend this is an octopus even though it only has 3 arms.

A ring!

On my ear!

This lipstick looks really, really dark in the tube, but is the sheerest of berry reds.

I got myself a Balenciaga for my birthday. It was between this or the PS1
but I didn’t like the clasps on the PS1 and knowing me, it’d make for a lot
of fumbling when I have to put stuff in, so no go.

Busy bee

Slowly updating the wall. Changed string to wrapping twine, which is much more durable, and exchanged the binder clips for tiny clothespins. So cute!

Finally bought a Fuji Instax and the color pay-off of the images is so much better than that of Polaroid film imo. And it’s nice knowing that Fujifilm will always be available for sale.

I’m always, always on the look-out for a tote bag with a great slinky shape, which is why I’ve got at least 20 in my closet. First one came free with a purchase at Strand bookstore, second one from J. Crew (LOVE the shape and the fabric is soooo soft so I bought two different designs…), and third came with an issue of Nylon Japan.

let’s make this a goal, 예?
