Playing catch up.

H&M blush blazer, mint green top, American Apparel black rider pants, Tawny thrifted Aldo boots.
Gray F21 fedora, Crossroads/F21 rings.
Gold H&M crochet sweater, White/Black thrifted polka dot scarf, Blue Forever 21 denim boot-cut jeans, Black H&M wedges, Brown thrifted bag.

Hi Lovelies! I'm so sorry for such a while of not posting, k well it literally feels like I didn't post that much this week. BUT, I'm trying to get the hang of things, just bare with me as it is midterm time and paper time right now in the semester.  
Here are a few outfit/detail photos I managed to take this week while randomly walking around Berkeley haha.  The first is what I wore on Tuesday, my H&M blush blazer (I can literally use that as my go-to outerwear jacket haha), American Apparel rider pants (these are beyond amazing esp for those cold days), and paired it with my mint cropped top and tawny Aldo booties.  I felt like playing with color that day, esp because it was nice outside.
There's a detail shot of a F21 fedora hat I bought such a while ago, but decided to wear it on a rainy day.  I could never find the perfect fedora that suited my head/whole look, luckily found one at F21! :)
Then the other outfit is from today, wearing my long boot-cut jeans from F21 (I raarely wear boot-cut jeans, well jeans in general lol) so it was nice to be casual today.  And of course, I wanted to go for comfort, so my H&M wedges and crochet sweater.

Sooo, I also want to tell you a few things happening in my blogger life :).  Firstly, tonight was the fitting for the BARE Magazine photoshoot, a student-run fashion magazine on the UCB campus, and found out raandomly (i was originally supposed to only be a stylist for the shoot) that they also wanted me to be a model!! Craazy, was very happy to accept :).  And tomorrow is the whole photoshoot, it's summer-themed, can't wait to share with you the final product!
Also, a few features I was contacted about recently were on Freesia blog where the lovely Monica contacted me to do a guest-post for her series of "Get Inspired By," I really loove the concept that she's featuring bloggers own inspirations, def check it out here!  And also got contacted by American Apparel as they said I was in a "Seen and Submitted" feature on their site! Check it out here! Was very flattered and ecstatic :) because I love all of their pieces :),

Lastly, just want to take a moment and a breather, to say a huge huge HUGE thank you to all of you who read and visit and leave the sweetest comments ever on my blog, you've given me so many opportunities in fashion and love that you're here for the ride to my possible career in fashion (crossing my fingers!) ;).  I see that Inspirafashion has almost 600 followers and trust me, I'm so grateful everyday.  Especially for all the lasting blogger friendships I've made on here!  Thank you again lovelies for inspiring me and really, all corniness aside, making me a better person.
----
Also, I wanted to ask if you have any money to spare, definitely try to donate to Red Cross to help those communities and victims affected by the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami.  The minimum is only $10 and payment is made simple.  Lets spread the love and support over there as well.  Go here to the main Red Cross website for donations.

Have a wonderful weekend and definitely keep inspiring Beautifuls! :)
