Run Away

I've always wanted to be a runner. But my stamina was never really cooperative with that goal.


End of last year, I said it's time to make dreams come true, and I joined the gym.

This year, I ran in the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge - 3.5 miles in Central Park

I finished in 38 min 15 sec. (walked 1/2 mile) Not the greatest, but when taken into context for someone who couldn't run for more than 2 mins before, I say it's not too bad.

Would You Like To Buy Some Cookies?

Whenever I wear khaki and white together, I always feel like I may turn out looking like a camp counselor. Or a Girl Scout.

Hopefully with the right accessories, I'll turn out looking more chic than that!


Top - Forever21
Skirt - Gap (had it forever)
Clutch - Lauren Merkin
Bracelet - H&M

And my new Pour La Victoire shoes from Ruelala 


A friend from work called it my "high-altitude" shoes, because these babies are TALL!

Call me dense, but I'm just beginning to realize that majority of my go-to pieces are from cheap retailers like Forever21 and H&M. Not that there's anything wrong with that -- it just makes me less guilty when I splurge on my handbags. And I do have my eye on another pair of Louboutins (since my black patent pumps have officially retired. R.I.P)


Cardigan, Jeans - Forever21
Bubble top/dress - Rachel Pally
Clutch - Lauren Merkin

New Clutch

I love clutches. It makes me feel Carrie-esque from Sex and the City. Although the amount of crap you can put in it is so limited that sometimes, it just isn't quite practical. But I still love them.

My latest is from Lauren Merkin - I saw it on HauteLook and was captivated. The adjustable chain was a welcomed surprise when I got it in the mail.


So it can be either a clutch, or a shoulder bag, or a cross-body. It's better than Superman, who only has 1 alter ego.
