I want you

How's your day? :) Today is Saturday, and instead of doing something about our thesis, I ended up browsing on online stores and found these beautiful dresses on Bergdorf Goodman. The prints are so beautiful, no? Too bad, I can't afford any of these.
Missoni Carla Short Shift Dress
Lela Rose Watercolor-Print Dress
Jean Paul Gaultier Printed Maxi Dress
Jean Paul Gaultier A-Line Maxi Dress

Found this dress and the remaining pictures on ASOS. 

Recently, I'm taking a liking on utility jackets

This varsity jacket is beautiful. I'd like to get my hands on this <3

Later, I swear I'll do something about my lazy attitude. ;) For now, I'll spoil my imagination with these pieces. Maybe later, I'll stop by the mall and buy the bohemian maxi dress I found at Primadonna. Oops! There goes my promise! Haha! 
Have a great day everyone! <3

Of thrift shops and thesis

Yesterday unexpectedly has been a very very very happy day! I bade goodbye to my 1 year old long hair and have it cut just below my shoulder. I must say that though i'm not that ecstatic with my new short hair, i feel like my hair is thankful for my decision. After having my hair cut, my mom directed me into this section of the mall where thrift shops are located. I got a lot of bargains but these two items are what made me reaaally happy! 

This brown leather jacket only cost me 42$! (i converted it from our currency to US dollars) A leather jacket was on top of my wishlist last xmas since Im well aware it's not practical buying such item from where I live and it costs too much so my parents wont let me buy one though I already found one in Mango 50% off! (100+$ from 200+$) Now this is what i call a steal. ;) (the color is originally lighter. not that dark)

This maxi dress is very Japanese in style! I see designs like these a lot from magazines and pictures from the internet! I just love maxi dresses and skirts since it make me look taller (duh) and i got this for 18$! It's so beautiful when you already wear it! <3

I decided to pair it with this brown military style jacket I got from a department store years ago and a brown sandal I always wear to school. So comfy!

I got these on a thrift shop where all its items are from Japan! Now that made it even more special <3 at least I know the materials used are authentic and the quality is epic! I was sooo thankful that I went and took a look on this shop before leaving! I also got 4 more bargains there. :) but these are my favorites.

On the other side of the note, these are some of what I got for Christmas:

                                           Blue military style jacket, Brown ankle boots (CMG)

Striped dress with peter pan collar (Plains and Prints) The fitting is beautiful once you wear it <3

My dad got this for me. Ironic that the name of the boots has the same name as me! (Hush Puppies) 10% off! another bargain! (Kero sniffing again on the right photo)

Godiva chocolates from my dad again.He tends to buy random chocolates but he knows i love truffles. He got me one. Finished it all easily. sorry. ;)

Okay, tomorrow is officially start of classes. Which means going back to the dorm (ugh) and have to cram for thesis revisions (monster ugh! no wait, not revisions...we have to do it all over again!!!) My thesis partner  and I wasn't able to do a thing over the vacation!! damn! And it's even harder because she went to Germany. :/ I have to add, i won't be able to finish my gameplay to Dragon Age2 (anyone playing that as well? :) ) ugh, oh well! This is where I end this post then. 

Have a lovely day! <3

New beginning, new in blogging

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>
Hi, I'm Kathleen and I'm new in blogging! Since this is my first entry, I decided I'll introduce myself by my real name. It took me awhile and a number of factors before I could convince myself to pursue such endeavor, namely bloggers that I have come to love and share the same interests, their influences which further motivates me in pursuing my secret admiration to photography (landscape and fashion, vintage),as well as Mr. 2012.
 I know I'm such a late bloomer in this but this is better than lurking in the shadows forever. :)    

I'm still looking for the best dSLR that would best tolerate my amateur-ness into photography. Ugh! Can't wait. Having said that, I'll first introduce you guys to my pet persian cat, Keroberos! He's turning 2 in the 14th. Oh he's getting old like me. 

Excuse the hand. That's my mother's :)) Oh and yes, he loves inspecting things by sniffing them. Like a dog. Hahaha! 

Oh, here are some photos I got using the iPad's cam, and uh, with the help of a web app. 

I really loved how the web app I used turn the pictures vintage/dreamy looking.

By the way, I'd like you all to introduce my dear friend Grace. You'll be seeing her a lot in my blogs.  Haha, she's the only one willing to model in my future photoshoots. Hope it works well. :) 

I actually bought a DianaF+ camera on my birthday last year.  I'll show you next time the pictures I got on my first trial with it. :) 

Anyway, nice to meet you! Pray I'll be able to get a dSLR reaaalll soooon! I already have a place to do the photoshoot and the outfits.
