Multifarious Monday

So I'm starting a theme day to start off the week!
(Maybe this will keep me nice n' regular with my posting like a good glass of Metamucil)
Don't know why I felt the need to say that.

  1. Nooka Watches
Head on over to to check 'em out at temptingly discounted prices (the cute and colorful jelly ones are only $65! Plus, it's INVITE ONLY and if you use my link and buy something it's super nice of you :)
I've been looking for a statement watch lately and these are definitely a possibility

2. WishWishWish

This blog is run by the incredibly cute Londoner, Carrie.
She has impeccable taste, breathtaking photos and videos, lovely content and the best style.
Her blog truly emulates what I hope mine will one day look like
(after I get better at taking photos and my own domain name).
Check out her blog PLEASE. Because it is a guilty pleasure of mine that I want to share this glorious Monday!)
She is also having an awesome giveaway here

3. I'm announcing that I will be happily going to the WONDERFUL
city of New York in a couple of weeks!

I'm looking into design schools and the prospects for me if I move there (I truly consider that city the missing part of my soul). If you know of any must-see places to shop comment please! If you live there I would love to buy you a coffee
(I love to meet new people)

4. This is (Zara is) absurd. Betty is also tres chic et tres magnifique. Check her out

5. I need a new bag. Multi-purpose, large and studded (preferably). Any suggestions?

xo Shan.

Here it goes: First Ever Outfit Post

top: Banana Republic
skirt and belt: H&M
*two finger bar ring: Obey (
tiger head ring:
gold jaguar purse: vintage
*(clear) wedge shoes: vintage

Well, long overdue, here is my first (VERY experimental) outfit post. Before you judge pleaseeeeee: I am very awkward in front of the camera! Yikes! I started this blog in part to work on my ever-present self esteem issues. Confidence ladies! Confidence! Now if I could only find some...

*Misc. Musings: I was looking at those tights on ASOS for a longgggg time and thinking: "Hey, those are cute." and mentally picturing outfits in which to wear them. Now, mind you, this was in the more winter-y days here in New York . Being a lovvveer of anything contrast-y (see how I like to make words by adding "-y" to the ends of existing ones?), I originally imagined them under some wool shorts and many layers to add a pop of hope and spring to the usual black drab. Well, when spring came early, most of my winter-y clothes went in my off-season closet (yes, I also have multiple closets) so I had to improvise fast because the tights arrived and I needed to wear them! Also, glance at the clear-heeled wedges (subtley chanelling Prada on accident?) and my new favorite long bar ring (mentioned here) and tiger head ring!

Lets be Vague

Oh. Chanel will ruin me. Every time I think of the pure elation I would have from owning a Chanel bag I cringe and think of my future $68,000 in student loans that I need to pay back...
That's like...34 decent Chanel handbags. Oh the exorbitant price of education gives me a headache....

Though compared to a (rough estimate) $2,000+ bag, a $23 bottle of the most beautifully shaded line of nail polish seems acceptable. ***Note on the models' feet: Nouvelle Vague***

Oh Mr.Lagerfeld...Dare I Say I'm Inspired

So it's a bit of a lazy week (or weeks?)
Time has just been slipping away lately,
and with the sudden loss of a dear loved one...
dare I say I've lost track of a lot of things.
However this morning when I was checking my email for the first time in I don't know how long,
I came across the latest masterpiece by the man I'm in constant awe of.
All I can say? Oh, Karl...

While I'm drooling over this and everything Chanel,
I'm playing with photoshop *sarcastic eye roll* and working on some DIY tutorials and my wayyyyyyy over-due outfit posts!

Birthday Wishes

Today I am officially 19! Yay!
It's the last of my teenage years, which is actually quite terrifying.
Nonetheless, I still dream like a five year old and make mile long wish lists every year on what I will spend my never ending birthday dough on (haha... that right there is one of those wishes).
I had a stupid final and work today of all days.
So, naturally, I spent the entire time I was supposed to be "working" on this little wish list.
Oh, if only...

Birthday Wishes-that-will-prob-never-happen List:
  1. Something, anything, in the awesomely haunting Miu Miu Spring 2010 prints (except the naked ladies one because wearing exposed boobs and vaj on clothing is something I will not do, even if it is Miuccia)
  2. a Mulberry Alexa tote...I would die for one...literally
  3. Something awesome and studded (like these Jeffrey Campbells)
  4. a Canon DSLR camera would realllyyyyy help my (COMING SOON as in a day or so) outfit posts
  5. an iPad (or just an ipod since I froze mine- literally- earlier this year and have been stuck with my 2G outdated nano ever since)
  6. A kitten...oh wait! This one has actually already come true! (More to come about my baby Kyan!)
