Spotlight: Jun Takahashi ✧

Japanese designer, Jun Takahashi, is the brilliant mastermind behind Undercover. Ever since I first saw Undercover's FW14 collection, Takahashi has been one of my favorite designers. I loved the whole creepy avant-garde aesthetic he had for this collection:

(Undercover's F/W 2014 collection.)

The models wore medieval vampire-type outfits, ethereal crowns and even donned bright red contact lenses to add to the eeriness:





Takahashi also has a trademark punk-street style going on, which I love. In his SS14 collection, he captured the essence of punk while still showing elegance and sophistication with a monochromatic color scheme.

In the finale, lights were turned off to showcase his captivating LED shirts. From what I've read, the words on the shirts were inspired by lyrics from a band called Savages and their post-punk album, Silence Yourself.




Jun Takahashi is the master of cool when it comes to fashion and I really look forward to what he comes up with in the future. You can check out his website at http://www.undercoverism.com/.

Record Store Day!


Hey guys! Sorry for the mini hiatus, school has been killing me lately which left me with no time for blogging. :( But since its finally spring break, you can expect a lot more posts coming your way! Anyways, yesterday was record store day and my friends and I decided to visit a record store down in Long Beach called Fingerprints.


The store is absolutely adorable and it is packed with tons of amazing records and cds for pretty low prices. I believe there was also a 15% off discount that day. I also found a couple of my favorite albums: 

We also ran into Barry Johnson from Joyce Manor although we didn't get a picture with him :( but he did give my friend a discount for being a fan.

After that we went to an antique store in Hawaiian Gardens called Gum's Mall of Antiques & Collectibles. The place was absolutely beautiful. It had an amazing pond inside with fish and turtles. There was even a parakeet!




I really wish I could've taken more pictures but for the most part it was a pretty awesome day and a great way to start spring break. Happy Easter everyone! xoxo

Music for March ♬

It's been a while since I've made a monthly music list so here are some of my newly discovered music that I absolutely recommend:





Youth Lagoon - The Year of Hibernation (2011)
I discovered them on Pandora and loved the song 17. Their music is incredibly calming and soothing. I listened to the rest of their album and was not disappointed. My favorite song was Afternoon. "And when I speak I don't make sense, but believe me when I see." I really recommend this band for fans of: Bombay Bicycle Club, Local Natives, and Daughter.




Portugal. The Man - Evil Friends - (2013)
This is another band I discovered on Pandora. I actually discovered them last year but I've never really heard the full album until just recently. My favorite song off of the album is Sea of Air and the acoustic version is so amazing. "When you talk to God about suicide, when you never hear back I hope your still alive and that part of you that never cared, well you can leave it here in the sea of air." I recommend this for fans of: Young the Giant, the Nationals, and Foster the People.





Young the Giant - Mind Over Matter (2014)
I've actually been a fan of Young the Giant since 7th grade so this isn't really much of a discovery, but oh well. When they announced they were releasing a new album I was so excited! This album definitely did not disappoint. My favorite song off the album is Paralysis. "Lately I've been thinking I'm not feeling nothing at all." I recommend this band for fans of: Two Door Cinema Club, Vampire Weekend, and Grouplove.

Valentines Day gift ideas ♡

It's officially February and that means its the month of Valentines Day! A day dedicated to love, lust, and gift giving. Here's a bunch of really cute simple gift ideas to give to that special someone. 









1. A mix cd - this idea is a really sweet idea for your significant other or even your crush, if you're feeling brave. You could put any song of your choosing to get your message across to them and if that's not cool and romantic then I don't know what is.












2. A simple card - a card is the perfect way to write about how you feel about them. It's also fairly simple and cheap but also meaningful (depending on what you write). You can get one here at Urban Outfitters for only 5 bucks.












3. Matching Necklaces - matching necklaces are an ideal gift for the both of you. It's a great way to express your relationship with others. The cost is also quite moderate. You can get this here on etsy.












4. Couples Activity Book - this a fun activity for couples to do on V-Day. You basically learn more about each other through a series of fun activities and questions. You can get one here at Barnes & Nobles.












And if you're single, just get a group of also single friends to treat yourselves with some eye candy and have an anti-love movie marathon. Or you could even have a "secret admirers" gift party. Just because you're single on V-day doesn't mean you can't have some fun!

Movie Review: Her

(Rated R, by the way.)

On a trip to the mall, my friends and I decided to watch the film Her. I've been dying to see this movie since I first saw the trailer (Huge fan of River & Joaquin Phoenix.) The movie is a beautifully told sci-fi love story by Spike Jonze. It takes place in the distant future and tells the story of Theodore Twombly, a recently divorced man who finds solace in an OS (an advanced operating system) who names herself Samantha. The two then fall in love but then soon realize how complex their relationship is.

There is just so much to love about this movie. The concept, the acting, the script, the writing, the soundtrack, and basically just the whole style of the movie is so distinct and so original. I found it very difficult to hold back my tears on some of the scenes. It's such an emotional and diverse piece, but at the same time funny and witty. This movie is definitely not for children because it  has some adult content but it is ideal for young adults. (Maybe teenagers if they can handle it.)

All in all, this film is brilliant, compelling, and I recommend it for those who are fans of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this film. This is undoubtedly a must-see film.


 Rating: 10 out of 10
