22 Oct

Dressed a Valentino show today! I’ve never been in such close proximity to actual couture, it was pretty surreal… Plus the Italians on the Valentino team were super nice and had no airs whatsoever. It’s always pleasant to meet people like that in fashion.

I find it crazy excessive that the dress cards with the polaroids just get thrown away after the show though, so I kept two of the looks that I got to dress :}

I also kept a few from the YSL show, which I wasn’t a part of, but it still hurt to think that the janitor was just going to throw the film away.

Spent my birthday week in a hotel.

Here is a photo of me at 22, holding a short-lived block of caramel fudge:

My mom is so cute: even after I eat a persimmon when I wake up in the morning there’s a new one in its place hahaha

And here is Chuck eating a banana.

At this very moment (no fooling) he is watching rats fight on the neighbor’s rooftop.

Seeing as how so many friends I’ve made are fellow Libras (curious), it’s just been an endless string of birthdays lately– starting off with Margaritas three weeks ago:

“Let’s lay down on top of him!”

I like how every three months it feels as if no time has passed between the time we see one another :’)))

I saw these rings by japanese tandem “e.m.” on my last day in Hong Kong.

This is the perfect example of the kind of cheeky ridiculousness that I tend to gravitate towards when it comes to jewelry. I humbly regret not getting them.
