What a week. First, my dissertation decides to kick my ass (and many others, since we art students understand deadline as something you paint over or photoshop till it looks like it’s something with every other meaning but the original), and then my laptop catches a cold and I end up having to format the retard and reinstall Windows and every other program back to normal circulation.

Luckily I backed everything up before the format. Except of course the browser bookmarks. Always forget to export bookmarks. And fonts. Although after formatting my hard-drive every other week since I was 17, (I was an uber tech geek until my braces came off and I started to resemble a female) I learnt to back up the font files the first thing before anything else. Fonts to aspiring designers are like marbles to the brain, straps and buckles to shoes.

Anyway, I’m back on track now; do expect an avalanche of posts for the coming few days since I have so much to show and tell. Hope you’ve all been well.

  1. Haha I know what you mean about “‘deadline’ as something you paint over or photoshop till it looks like it’s something with every other meaning but the original”.

    Cool outfit :)
    Your boots and the bag are awesome.

  2. yay you’re back!! i’m sorry that happened to your computer but you seem like a very prepared person! my macbook died while i was in korea and i eventually was able to save everything but it was very nerve-wracking. i learned my lesson – i try to back things up more often but yikes… i don’t remember the last time i did that!

    the boots do not look like they have that high of a heel from the front! how deceptive!

  3. Ah those boots are the steepest boots I own, I can barely walk in them!
    But the deceptive nature…I think it’s only because 다리가 짧아서그런거일거예요 아마 ㅋ

  4. i totally adore your riding pants and boots, the combo is great :)

  5. So as I sit here in a khaki oversize hooded jacket with drawstrings (sounds familiar?) and I think back to the time I bought a bright bluey purple mohair cardigan (incase you’re not sure what I’m drawing parallels to its your blue blazer cardigan thing…I know your wardrobe off the top of my head, is that creepy?) I am starting to think…YOU INSPIRE ME!!

    SO anyway. Keep it up. Every post I either laugh or have some sort of creative flash. Two of my favourite (and most important) things to do in life.

  7. great outfit as always, love the shot with the pink balloon :) hope your laptop doesn’t catch any other diseases !

  8. I really dig your bag.

    Ugh totallyknow how that goes. I’ve been reformatting way to many computers in my home lately and I forgot to backup the fonts on my laptop. Luckily my roomie is a graphic designer so I have tons of his fonts at my dispsal.

  9. great outfit, i love the color scheme

  15. Great photoshop effect with the baloon!!

  16. gimme your bag pleeeaaaasse!

  17. Ah, I would probably cry like a girl would for a middle school breakup if my computer bugged out like that…at least you had most things backed up!

    Love this outfit, the pants look great!

  18. totally sexy black boots

  19. Great outfit!

  20. Computer trouble sucks! Good you knew what you were doing, I wouldn’t have a clue! I love the bag.

  21. My husband is a graphic designer/web designer, and he lost all his fonts once–It was like one of his children died or something. Incredible. I’m quite sure that, besides his design work, fonts are the first thing he backs up. He uses a Mac, though, so there’s a lower need to have to re-format regularly.

    Good luck with everything. Can’t wait to read the new posts!

  22. thanks :-)

  23. I really like your jacket ! :)
