Yesterday my family and I trekked out to Redlands to attend the Inland Koi Society Meeting! My uncle's girlfriend's parents are major koi enthusiasts (especially her dad!), and they hosted the meeting at their historic awarded Heritage Home.

Their house is incredible! I would have had to have gone into full-on shutterbug mode to capture all the cool features of the house. By the time I got to the second room I had to level with myself when I realized it would be impossible this time around and decided to just soak it all in (I didn't mean to intentionally let you guys down lol). It has a very Hearst Castle, Villa NellcĂ´te vibe to it. One day I'll come back and do an awesome photoshoot!

They are so cute and friendly!

This one was huge! They adopted him from a lady who kept it in very shallow, dirty water but it somehow managed to get huge.

Vintage denim jacket, red coral necklace, and Indian tunic, H&M Jeans, pewter octopus pin from ebay, and secondhand calf hair boots.



Triple Five Soul Jacket, vintage Levis jeans, vintage shirt, and vintage snakeskin boots.

Hey! Hi! Hello! It feels like it's been a while. This is what I've got on lately - I'm not certain that any pair of pants I've had on recently has cost me more than a couple of bucks. Don't take my lack of outfit posts and general contributions to the blog as a lack of interest, it's more a lack of organization. It's just been harder lately to find time for decent outfit posts, scans, etc. (What with the gameplay time in all of my pokemon games being in the 3 digits and all). I'm going to try my best to articulate, what is, the daily chaos of inspiration through my eyes, into my brain, and onto the blog more often. Which at the moment is somewhere between samurai, surf music, greasy spoons, and blues legends (Which at the moment is sounding like some sort of Tarantino film? Although I do enjoy his movies, they're not the vibes I'm surfing at the moment. ((Also, me talking like a brain dead surfer is not the side effect of my recent peak of interest in the music/culture, but probably has more to do with my Orange County upbringing))).

I've probably worn these boots too many blog posts in a row, I often tend to reach for them when I want to be genuinely inspired by what I've got on. There's nothing like having a dead snake wrapped around your feet and ankles to put a spring in your step.

Saying hello to my faithful cat Mouse while exploring the backyard of my neighbor, who recently moved out. Mouse serves as a faithful companion for outdoor spring time reading sessions once you get past the fact she sheds white hair over everything.

Thank you for stopping by and for the continued support! I really do appreciate hearing from you guys and always try to write back and to visit your guys' blogs too! Now I'm off to tackle an asinine busy work assignment assigned by my English teacher who's as stupid as she is crazy. Is it summer yet?



Sorry for recent stalling of posts! I've been on spring break these past two weeks and haven't had time to put together a proper blog post! I promise that posting will return to normal now that I have nothing better to do after school. I did do a little shopping while I was staying in LA last week and I've picked up a new hobby recently that I'm excited to post about so stay tuned. Thanks again guys for stopping by and for your kind comments and support; it means a lot! :)



Another fistfull of images from my Flea Market travels. You may notice I was particularly drawn towards the footwear this time around.

I think the design of these is so clever! I mean, when doesn't a secret zipper on your boots come in handy?
