It's Escada

Playing: Blue Monday-New Order
Reading: The Devil and Tom Walker by Washington Irving
Over the weekend, I make it my mission to do interesting things even if they only take up an hour or two of my time, since I do have to do my homework after all. My dad wants to take me shooting, but the closest shooting range to me is an hour away, so we just haven't had the time. However, over the weekend, I love dressing up because I wake up somewhere in the double digits, which means I'm more likely to be more experimental with my look. Plus, I get to use purses during the weekend and I love purses. Here I'm wearing a Central Park sweat shirt, Mango jeans, Qupid oxfords, necklaces from South Korea and Mexico, and an Escada clutch. I've been into colored jeans since the fifth grade, but I only started wearing them three years ago because before that, I couldn't find any in my size!
I usually carry around cross body purses, but lately, I've been liking the idea of clutches. It's a tad less juvenile and looks dressier with my outfits. This Escada clutch is so simple, but the hardware makes it look so luxurious.One time I was carrying this  purse at a meeting with a bunch of other teenagers and they all asked me if it was designer, since it looks expensive and I told them it's Escada. None of them had heard of Escada, so I felt uncomfortable. I feel like I'm an outcast whenever I talk about fashion because no one can relate with me about how great fashion is other than Jessy and Michael.
I took the clutch to True Food Kitchen and all these women with very expensive purses complimented me on my purse. It made me feel like the clutch was a great buy. I ordered the Cucumber Refresher, which is lemon juice with cucumber and honey, along with the Seafood Caldo, which was a shrimp and sea bass stew with collards, white beans, cilantro, lime, and chili broth. My parents shared the Caramelized Onion Tart with me, which is a must try. The balance of gorgonzola, black figs, and garlic is so amazing.
Oh, and if you haven't figured it out, I'm really in love with my porcupine puffer Jacques. Feeding him is a pain, since I have to cook shrimp and clams for him, but it's worth it. He loves lettuce the most so far and I'm trying to teach him some tricks. My friend, Sagiv, told me I need to calm down because he's "just a fish." Well, let me tell you this, he is a very interactive pet. Almost as interactive as my dog.
Do you own any pets?


  1. OMG your fish is totally adorable and rather exotic! I don't have any pets but I'd love to have a turtle. Your clutch is cute. Blue Monday by New Order is one of my fave songs :)

    Really? He eats cooked shrimps and lettuce? Like seriously? Coolness!! Love your purse and outfit btw. xoxo

  5. I've been wanting my husband to take me to a shooting range too! Could be fun.

    Jacques is cute, no wonder you love him. Gosh he eats pretty fancy meals... cooked shrimp and clams! Wow! ;)

  6. I'll apologize in advance for my lack of fashion lingo and way of thinking but ... That clutch looks so clean and perfect! Something about it gives off this straight off a vogue photo spread feeling ...
    I hope you'll be able to find more people that understand fashion. I get pretty awkward whenever I have to explain what I'm wearing to people as well. :(

    So glad to see that you're posting your outfits!

  7. Rowena @ rolala loves-New Order is amazing, right? :D

    Ice Pandora-Haha, I'm trying to teach Jacques tricks that way Sagiv will be impressed. Also, I haven't smelled their perfumes yet, but I'll have to check them out! c:

    Kristen de Vera-Jacques says thank you!

    Erica-Haha, I'm trying to get Jacques to eat the less expensive pellets otherwise I'll go broke from feeding him. X)

    P o o p e r-No need to apologize! I can totally see how explaining lolita to your friends can be hard, but as long as you're happy, right? (PLUS, you look super ADORABLE in lolita!)
