London Calling


As I get older I find myself becoming bored, more and more easily. I think a lot of it comes from during the summer i move back in with my parents when my apartment lease goes up...and sometimes it gets to me...

keep in mind it is *I* who lives in merry ole chicago, my family lives in a small town on the out skirts of the city. so there isn't much to do out here. Yes we have a wal-mart *snore* and a like a dairy queen *bigger snore* but it is far from the artistic thrusts of wicker park *chicago'sversion of williamsburg, need a better example, chicago's hipster version of shibuya, need a better example, chicago's version of Camden*

I miss it everyday, but I cannot necessarily afford to drive up there at my everywhim, I suppose I neglected to say that..uh, I can't drive -_-...I grew up so close to the city that I never needed too, but public transit is getting rather expensive that the cost to drive is almost cheaper than taking the metra into the city, PLUS i dont live within walkin distance of metras, so therefore I am stuck in the burbs, and versus wallowing up in tears every day (because I do love the burbs, if you live in the midwest we do have some pretty nice greenery to keep you entertained, i love forest, my parents house is actually in the forest, rather cute indeed) I just wish I could have the best of both worlds, I suppose I should learn to drive, buy a car, then I could have both...:/

BUT I DIGRESS, and return to my statement before...sometimes when you get older you have to make things more interesting, so yesterdee Panda and I decided to make it British Night, oh yeah, thats right...!!!!

I don't think i ever made this clear either, but my love for London is probably up there for my love for Tokyo, I'm such an expatriate, even Panda is not American, he came here when he was five, don't get me wrong i love the US, but uh...again, I get bored easily...therefore...

I commend the night, i got all dressed up street style like, taking fashion inspirations from some of the brit gals on lookbook.nu..



and this is me...

I don't think you can see my floral skirt too well, BUT i definitely think I should wear heels more often :) I do hate how the camera captures my hair like a big mass...

We went to this new restaurant they opened in town that is supposed to be a creole fest (being creole I'll be the JUDGE OF THAT) but we just got fish and chips, it was rather good actually! It wasn't just fried fish fat and sticks of hot grease, it was very fluffy and light, I didn't feel like I commited a cardnal sin...



then we jumped over to the video store and rented a grindehouse of hott fuzz and shawn of the dead. If you follow my tumblog (i hate that word) you will notice that I LOVE simon pegg!! tee hee! he's the cooliest! anyways, we actually never got to watching them, so we will continue the grindehouse tonight!


and I'm sure you are wondering why we never got to to, we'll, we were too busy watching these losers...(haha jk)

now I won't bore you with all of my doctor who fanboy-ness, but OMG i almost peed-ed my pants watching episode "4-5" OMG intense!!!



i really like the new doctor, i know i know, tennant has a faithful cult following, but even he wants smith to do well...and I really like smith's quirkiness, he's so odd it's absolutely adorable!

The Doctor: Legs. I’ve still got legs, good. Arms. Hands. Ooh, fingers, lots of fingers. Ears, yes. Eyes, two. Nose, I’ve had worse. Chin, blimey! Hair… I’m a girl!

No! No… I’m not a girl. And still not ginger! And something else, something important, I’m, I’m… I’m…Ha! Crashing! Ha-ha! Whoo-hoo-hoo! Geronimoooooo!

Hah, I really find it humorous how he makes stabs at his own personal features. I realize he's young but he seems to be taking it very humbly; I'm happy he's not some Edward looking pretty boy, I know he's bubbling s heart throb fanbase (jeez...) I'm glad he's not like "oh I'm so hot, ladies grovel at me feet" please no more stuck up British imports please...And honestly a lot of what you see on Doctor who is him being his strange self, i found this picture of him at coachella and was like "OMG I LOVE YOU FOR THIS"


a floral backpack...A FLORAL BACKPACK....five stars, he even said he wanted the doctor to start wearing a hat because he loves hats, he even came up with most of his costume, ah i like actors that are creative and have brains than just puppets...


anyway, turned out Panda and I had a great time! Today we need to go costume shopping and I'll show you why later! So if you feel like your getting bored with the mundanity that is life, mix it up have a theme night! Speak all proper, grab a pint at the pub and watch a few blokes on the telly, its really fun! reminded me of my days as a theatre major..haha, i hated studying dialects...

anyway I have ranted on long enough, thank you all for your silly support on my last posting!!

What a great outfit! British fashion rocks. Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, and Sienna Miller are some of my fashion role models. XD I love your idea of a theme night! Great to hear you two had a good time.

Rayelle said...

@Shop N' Chomp - I saw Sienna Miller the other day (or at least I think I did...) in Brick Lane

Blanca, I didn't know you were a fan of Londinium! Have you ever been? I love the style you're rocking I particularly love the heels... personally I can't walk in heels I have the balance of a 3-legged-table.

Oh I can totally understand your feeling. As you get older, you experience less new things, get into routines, have many responsibilities. It just kills the chance for non-boring activities haha!

Driving is really great, I mean I hate it and it makes me uncomfortable, but if I need to I can go and do the things I need/want to.

I think you look so much cuter than your inspiration model. I think she should take lessons from you! hehe^^

Emmelie ♥ said...

Oooh I love the outfit ♥♥♥ I love British fashion myself!

and Fries *__*)/ One of my bad habits ♥♥♥

Miruku said...

I love those films! I can't choose which one I like better though...maybe Hot Fuzz?? Argh, both are brilliant! By the way, I think you better than the model you copied. Your legs are pure heaven in the photos. I don't think London fashion is that impressive at all. I grew up near there so maybe it's just not interesting for me, but I think too many girls can't see beyond Kate Moss skinny-chic.

Thanh Thao said...

I like your out fit so much!! Thanks for sharing your fotos! I also think that I must wear heels more often, but in the end, I wear my Chucks all the time, hahaha!

Love the French Fires, you made me hungry now! :-))

Shop N' Chomp said...

@Rayelle- No way! XD

@ Bianca- I've only seen bits and pieces on YT and even with that, I'd have to agree. Btw, if you're talking about DiorSnow sunscreen you can buy it here now! That was actually my previous sunscreen before using Lancome. I got it at Nordstrom. :)
