Happy Chinese New Year!

So my mom owns a lot of great clothes! Too bad they’re all a couple sizes too big, but sometimes they fit! For example, this beautiful Anna Sui cardigan was my size! :) It has really pretty embroidered embellishments on both shoulders, sooo of course, I had to wear it out for dim sum today with my family. I wore my Sofft brand shoes again. Very comfortable as usual, except… the lace up part irritates this bone on my foot that protrudes more than other parts of my foot :\ too much information? Sorry! haha

Anyway, here’s what I wore: Anna Sui cardigan, Gucci bag, H&M black pants, and Sofft lace-up shoes.

I actually started taking pictures outside my house, but there were a lot of cars driving by and I got sort of shy and embarrassed… especially because there’s some guy that goes to my school that lives directly across from me and there is someone that is always looking out their window! Creepy much? So I decided to move inside my house to take pictures haha Just remodeled the basement! Can’t wait to move down there and finally get my own room in SF! I think I’ve gotten way too used to having my own place in college, that I need that same privacy back in the city.

Oh yeah, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Have a semi-planned Valentine’s Day outfit ready, except it’s planned for tomorrow (not vday) and I don’t really have any places to go haha Just an excuse to wear it I guess… Anyway, collect plenty red envelopes if you’re Chinese/Asian!

I applaud bloggers who constantly update their blogs. I, for one, need to be more like them–not be lazy! Well winterbreak is here and boy, it just feels THAT much better to be doing absolutely nothing at home HAHAHA

Since break started, I’ve gone (minimal)  shopping 3 days in a row, went to Dave & Buster’s 3 days in a row, and ate chicken wings from Smoke Eaters 3 days in a row. Weather is quite chilly back here in San Francisco… & I’m craving me some hooded scarves! I saw somewhere that you can find one at H&M, so I was at the one on Santana Row (San Jose) and asked an employee about it. THAT B*TCH WAS UNNECESSARILY RUDE!!!!!! WTFF She should not work in retail if she can’t answer a simple question without an attitude. Anyway, so now I’m back to shopping for a nice hooded scarf.

Anyway, since it’s been cold, I’ve been wearing my (faux) leather jacket all the damn time:

Damn I look hella emo in the picture hahaha Oh! Those grey ankle boots are awesome!!!! It has a strap that you can unsnap so it becomes a higher length boot! How much did it cost me?? $25!! I love it when I find great deals. Got it from Shotwell (SF)! LOVEEE THAT STORE! I will definitely be going back. It just sucks b/c the store is in downtown SF and I usually drive… and that means parking = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$!

What else have I been doing? The bf brought me to Christmas in the Park! It was so cute! Hundreds of Christmas trees decorated by the community and plenty of life size holiday themed displays! AND THE BEST PART?? FAKE SNOW!!!!!!! It was actually foam or something, but it was so coool!

I still need to shop for shoes and dresses for Vegas!!!! I’m going for New Years Eve! Meet me there?! Gonna be crazy fun and crazy cold (I heard).

Black Friday

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Had nice lunch at Loi’s! It’s this vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco. Very yummy pho! Then had dinner at home with my family. Since my family is super Chinese, we only bought a really really tiny turkey and ate like less than half of it LOL We don’t really feast like everyone else haha but it doesn’t matter b/c I already had 2 Thanksgiving dinners with my friends in Davis. Anyway, here’s what I wore to lunch:

Black Friday was pretty unsuccessful in terms of shopping for clothes. Stayed up all night and bought pretty much nothing lol So my journey starts at 12 am outside Great Mall’s Neiman Marcus entrance so I could rush over to H&M… what is it with H&M and LONG ASS LINES?!?? Anyway, got in walked around and there were stuff that I wanted, but it wasn’t that much discounted from it’s regular prices so I just walked out. Plus 2 days ago I bought 2 items from H&M already haha.

Great Mall had wayyy too many people and I wasn’t in the mood for waiting in long lines to buy a few items so I left and took a nap until other places opened. Went to Best Buy, Target, Walmart, & Kohl’s hahaha & bought headphones, towels, comforter, and DJ HERO!!!!!!! Well technically it’s not mine, b/c my bf bought it lol I think it’s a really fun game… but I also love DDR, Guitar Hero, Rock Band sorts of games sooo yeahhh

I hope everyone else found great deals! I really should’ve just stayed home and take advantage of the sales & free shipping online! Oh well, there’s always cyber monday plus winter sales should be coming soon!

Jimmy Choo & leggings

Warning: THIS POST IS GOING TO BE MOTHER-EFFING LONG! Just so I could forever remind myself how ridiculous that day was.

Sooooo I personally looooovee opaque leggings… but my bf on the other hand HATES them. He literally said to me that it makes him not want to be seen with me :( !!!!! Quite shocked from hearing that… but apparently he found a niche of guys who despise leggings on girls and think that they’re repulsive!! That makes me super sad!

I guess one reason that led to his “leggings haterism” is that I wore them to the Jimmy Choo for H&M release in San Francisco and he felt that see-through leggings were inappropriate for cold weather.

Anyway, I know the Jimmy Choo for H&M shebang was SO last week, but I didn’t get to write about it here soooo here goes.

I woke up at around 5 am to drive out to San Francisco. I go to school in Davis… hence the waking up extra early part. After getting ready, I got to the long ass friggin’ line at about 7:30 am… AND I almost ran someone over in front of this long ass friggin’ line LOL (ok not funny actually) Anyway, so I ended up waiting in front of the Ben Sherman store and within 10-15 minutes, the line extended all the way down to where the Apple Store is! (Sorry if these references are irrelevant to you.) SO was waiting there with the bf, until he realized Niketown had some shoe release shiz too… now I’m just waiting alone by myself :( luckily people around me were fun to talk to hahaha finally line starts moving at 9-ish. and OBVIOUSLY at this point you should know that I was not one of the first 160 people to receive bracelets, b/c those people apparently got there the day before and camped out! Love them for the commitment, but HATE THEM FOR TAKING EVERYTHING!!!!!!

So near 10 am the doors were open, people going crazy in the store grabbing everything in sight. I grabbed a sequin cardigan, but heard someone say the shoes were upstairs so I literally threw the cardigan down and ran towards the escalator. That was USELESS, b/c I just ended up in a big crowd of people who didn’t have bracelets to go into that section. Even people WITH bracelets didn’t go in yet! And the non-bracelet people wouldn’t be able to get in until 12-ish. I lost a hint of hope at this point, so the bf convinced me to have lunch. While having lunch my friend who was also there (to get shoes for his gf, how sweet) called me and told me non-bracelet people can enter now! This was around 11:30 am so I finished my meal and hurried my ass back over to H&M.

Here comes the fun part… NOT! Here I am, stuck in the middle of people towering over me. I literally yelled out “this is height discrimination!” Because let me explain… so for us non-bracelet people to go into the Jimmy Choo accessories section, the security just counts up to 10 people per group to go in. And all these crazy bitches were waving their arms, trying to get the security to see them. And people were pushing! C’mon girls… be nice… It was to the point where this one chick’s boobs were all over me that I was at some awkward angle like doing a 45 degree with my ankles awkward! So I just turned around and said these exact words, “Sorry, could you please back up, b/c I’m at an extremely awkward angle. My knees are all weird.” LOL whatever I got my point across and she backed off of me haha

THEN THIS ONE GIRL I JUST WANTED TO MURDER! I was standing to the left of her friend and she was behind me on my left. This girl reached her arm out in front of my chest to drag her ass over to her friend, just shoving her body into mines. UH. RUDE. She looked like she was 13. Shouldn’t she be playing hopscotch or something? Anyway, I guess I’m too passive and I should assume obnoxious and aggressive people at these sort of things…

SO MY TURN FINALLY CAME! A lot of stuff was already gone, but I didn’t wake up at 5 am for nothing! Soooo I ended up grabbing some beautiful black gladiator studded heels (sz 8), 2 bracelets, and a wallet/clutch! Unfortunately I have munchkin feet (sz5-6) and I don’t fit a damn size 8! There were only size 9s left when I was in there… and there were still a whole lot of people trying to get in. Anyway, I just bought everything I grabbed and sold the shoes on Ebay! It deserved a home!

Jimmy Choo for H&M stuff

I hope they decide to restock ONE MORE TIME! b/c I really wanted the sequin top and those gladiator heels! I know they restocked once in New York, but restock for SAN FRANCISCO PLEASE!

What would I do differently next time? Well for one, when I wake up at 5am… I better already be in SF! not driving another 1.5hrs to get to SF! I actually live in SF too lol stupid me

Anyway, told ya this was gonna be a long ass mother effing post!
