Lala's Style of the Days

I've been feeling very introspective lately. I don't know, is it even possible to have a feeling of introspection?

I've started to wonder what to do with my life. I've also re-started my habit of staring at random things. For instance, I could not help stop staring at my professor's arm pit stains or the funky color of this one guy's toenails or the quarter that kept jumping up and down on the treadmill or the bottle cap that was left in the corner of the gym. Sometimes, taking time to stare at random things brings new life It makes you feel real and it somehow makes your existence more tangible in a way. Staring at completely insignificant things is the best. You should all try it out sometime.


  • Tee Shirt: $10 express.
  • Baggy wide legged trousers: $6 loehmanns
  • Shoes of course

I was surprised how little "stuff" I wore. Only a shirt and pants. Wow.


Sunny days are the best. Sunny days that's not too warm because I can still color my legs which always brings a smile to my chipmunk face.

  • This cool patterned tank: $1.50 st. vinnies. I actually think this is sleepwear now that I think about it. It has that soft flannel feeling.
  • Purple Betsey Johnson skirt: $0.98 st. vinnies
  • Brown belt
  • Red tights: buffalo exchange, $3.50
  • Knit vest of happiness: from my mom. I wonder if my mom was ever a hippy because it's like a serious hippy vest. Wait. Nah, my mom's not that old...I think.
  • 80's heels: $4 local thrift.
  • Yellow bag, yellow ray-bans

I tried to do my hair all messed up like Rayanne's from My So-Called Life with all these braids and random miniature pony-tails sticking out. I like it, I should insert these little braid things more. I'm feeling the wavy hair these days, not that my hair was that straight to ever begin with. Today I woke up and my hair was, as Christian from Project Runway would say it, a hot mess. It was a mess but man was it hot, or so I thought. I woke up and headed straight to the bathroom. I saw Mwang and suddenly she burst into laughter. I turned towards the mirror. Oh yeah, sleeping had given me Poison-esque 80's big hair. Bacne came in later and laughed. It was great. I should have just walked out like that.

Other exciting news:

I finally heard back from study abroad and guess what? I'm going abroad in the fall. I can hardly wait.

I should get back to studying my IS/LM model and curves and stuff. I don't know. When re-evaluating your life, memorizing the shifts of graphs hardly seems important anymore, not that it ever did, but it just makes it less important. I really need to stop this introspection feeling, it's getting me nowhere.

yay for studying abroad! I've found that my habit of staring at random things can sometimes get me in trouble, or make me fall asleep. Like right now.

Italy ahoy, Sailor? Good for you. You totally need to focus right now. There is so much ahead of you.

Love the wide-legged trousers. But you look all grown up in them. though I don't know if that's a bad thing. The red tights are a dream. I personally would never carry them so well. But then again, I am ancient...

Italy was my #1 place to go and I went a few years ago.
It is amazing and frustrating and beautiful!!!!
Rome was my favorite- it was like a dream.
