hiyeom! (:

sorry, i couldn’t resist the bad joke. :P anywho, goodness it’s been a while. may’s been crazy with APs and piano and debates and such, but after tomorrow’s piano competition (-crosses fingers- hopefully i do well!), things should be relatively smoother.

anywho, updated pics with my current hair! yay! (i was going to finish posting my old outfit pics with my long hair… but then i didn’t really want to. so maybe i’ll do that some other time, eh? yeah i know, i kinda post outfits arbitrarily and not in order, but meh. oh well. :P)

i’ve been sitting on these pants for a while now since i haven’t figured out a way to style them, but i liked the palette of red, white, and black, so here they are!

hiyeom! (:

so confession: this is an oldish picture, but it’s been sitting there (along with all my other outfits from before) in storage, so i decided to upload it now! i hope that’s okay. (:

haha, please ignore my expression (it was a good shot of the outfit, so i’m using it). _’ speaking of which, i really like rompers because they’re so versatile- you can wear them in the summer or the winter as shorts too.

hiyeom! (:

phew. all my mock ap tests are done, so tonight there’s no homework and no studying. cheers so, that means time for an update!

i really like dark blue/black with red and white. it just looks classic yet modern to me. (:

(forgive me, my brain’s a little fried at the moment, so i can’t really think of what to say…)

but anywho, i found a new photo editing site, so i’ll be experimenting with it. (:

-violet

hiyeom! (:

just a heads-up: i probably won’t be updating regularly in may due to piano competitions, ap exams, sat 2 studying, and all that jazz. so, if you don’t hear from me in a while, i’m still alive and still here! (:

anywho, this dress (and all the other parts of this outfit) was from my china trip last summer (china has the prettiest and girliest pieces, and i love it). the belt actually came from another dress that my aunt gave me in china (which i’ll also be posting soon!).

also, these shoes broke. again. sigh i really liked them too… any really good shoe glue you guys could recommend?

-violet

P.S. another heads up: i know i cut my hair and all, but i have these photos, pre-hair cut, that i reallyyyy want to upload, so, i will for a while. once i’m done with those, i’ll start uploading my current outfits! ^_^

hiyeom! (:

wow, it’s been a while. ap lang essays kill me. but i’m done with it finally! wahoo!

so i’ve realized i’ve worn these pants quite a number of times already… i can’t help it though- they’re so darn cute! plus, with the weather warming up, i have to get in all my pants-wearing before i really, really have to pack them away. i promise, no more orange pants until this winter! i need to give my other clothes some love too. _

ps. picnik is closing today and because of homework (dang you!) i couldn’t picnik all the pictures i’ve got in storage. AGH. does anyone know of a picnik-esque site i can use instead now?

hiyeom! (:

so, i’ve finally succeeded in setting up a somewhat decent tumblr (after several days of unhappy confusion.. computer programmer i am not) which is… violet-ly.tumblr.com. so please check that out and suggest any improvements and whatnot. (:

as for this outfit- i am really loving the bright colors for spring so i decided since today wasn’t too hot, i could get away with wearing my orange pants. _ i am really liking orange with pink, so i wore this new hole-y sweater i had bought recently, and then added a pop of contrast with the blue watch. (:

-violet

hiyeom! (:

i liked the lighting outside, so i said “whattheheck” and photo-ed this outfit. (: i love these shorts i got from forever 21! (though one of the buttons did later fall off…. i’ll need to fix that…) they’re super comfy and cute (though i have to pull them down cuz they ride up and start looking too short… when i wore them to school once, my english teacher commented “those are some sassy shorts! you better watch that booty!” my friend and i literally died laughing.) haha, so i don’t know if i’ll ever wear these without tights… maybe. we’ll see.

hiyeom! (:

wahoo, it’s spring break! i’m so happy to be able to take a deep breath. but unfortunately, i can’t bum it out entirely- i’ll be busy on college visits! agh. college. scary.

but anyways, i misinterpret the weather rather frequently, and today was one of those days…. should’ve worn pants. ah well. i got this shirt and skirt on sale from forever 21 and though i originally wanted to get a different shirt to pair with the skirt, i rather like this pairing. _ the gold skirt reminds me of those flappers in the 1920s (which we just learned about in AP US History, woop woop) and it’s just so fun!

hiyeom! (:

it’s been a while since my last post! i update pretty erratically, buut spring break is literally a day away! thank goodness. senioritis has already afflicted me. and i’m not even a senior, haha…

but anyways, today was kinda chilly-ish, so i decided to sneak in some winter clothes before i have to put them away for good. (: i got these orange chinos from j.crew for a steal (oh, how i love their sale section _) and they always make me happy when i wear them! (though idk if i like it when my friend refers to them as pumpkin pants…. __’) i like how they can spruce up neutrals and springify them. _

hi!

just a quickie update today! so sorry for the lateness~ i can’t seem to management my time very well…. ah well.

anywho, i love this tulle skirt! it was a gift from my aunt in china 7 years ago (thankfully it still fits! yay for elastic waistbands!) and i feel like a princess when i wear it. i really like the gloves too- i got them from target and they’re the prettiest mimosa color and have a cute little bow tie! _
