Relaxed button-ups

Greetings! Today was an eventful shopping day with my moms and dads. I can spend hours looking through racks of clothes, and lately, I’ve been obsessed with bargain stores. I impulsively pull over at any Nordstrom Rack or Marshalls or T.J. Maxx that I drive by, even if I don’t end up buying anything in the end. It’s so fun to just kill time flipping through hangers.
Sometimes I have incredibly random dreams that make no sense whatsoever until I come across something during the day that pieces it all together. Last night, I dreamt that my friend Soniphs and I were dating George and Justin Nozuka, respectively. I used to listen to Justin Nozuka a lot during the summer but I haven’t tuned in to any of his music for about two months or so, thus seeing him in my dreams was nothing short of bizarre (but I didn’t mind, considering he’s so handsome and talented.) Anyways, I just found out through Tumblr five minutes ago that today is his birthday!! My old co-worker would say that it’s probably the Pisces in me (apparently we’re psychic.)

Professional world

Today was my first official day at Bella Eye Care Optometry and I had such a wonderful day! Dr. Nguyen is just the coolest and the other clinical assistant, Teresa, is so sweet and spunky. I think I’m really going to enjoy working there. I’m so glad I didn’t just jump on the first job offer that presented itself to me. Now, I get to spend every day in a clinical environment that I enjoy and interact with patients on a daily basis! I have no doubt that working at Bella Eye Care will get me even more excited about a career in medicine. 
One of the most exciting changes from my office assistant job at ORL to this job is the dress code. While I thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of wearing jeans and work-out clothes at my old job, I definitely welcome the opportunity (or rather the requirement) to wear slacks, pencil skirts, heels, fancy blouses, and blazers. 


I have been talking about starting a fashion blog for quite some time now. I guess all those hours spent scrolling through Kourtney Kardashian’s blog, Wendy’s Lookbook, Hapa Time, Song of Style, Dulce Candy, Lookbook, etc. inevitably transformed into a love for fashion, which in turn manifested itself into this blog. 
It took a while to actually get around to this, though. I was consumed by college, held captive in research with my mouse babies, stressed out with medical school applications, and drained from job hunting.
But alas, here I am: A UCLA graduate with a BS in Neuroscience newly employed as a clinical assistant for a wonderful optometry office. Nothing can stop me now! Except maybe my lack of a fancy DSLR camera, a roadblock which various iPhone apps have made conveniently easy to bypass. My blog is on a budget, as is my fashion.
Ok. This will do for an introduction.
