Black and White

BCBG leatherette accordion skirt, Steve Madden oxfords

Please excuse the slightly lackluster smile in the last photo - Tim calls it my "dead look." The truth is, wearing as much as I do (two layers on top, one being long-sleeves, leatherette on the bottom) in the humid heat of Shanghai with tons of curious onlookers is the perfect recipe for my tired smile! 

As I've mentioned before, I'm heading off to college in a month, and it's really pushing me to delve into uncharted territory - with new experiences, being the "new kid" (although everyone is a new kid in their first year of college), moving halfway across the world, starting a long-distance relationship, and leaving all my best friends behind. On the other hand, there are some things that I am so excited about. I'll be majoring in Media Studies, with requirements in photography or film classes and art history. I'll be learning about things like the history of American broadcasting and women in media. It's just great to know that I'll be able to take classes in subjects that genuinely pique my interest. Did I mention that I also love meeting new people? Yet the fact remains that my feelings towards heading off to college are a little bit like this outfit - black and white. Then again, doesn't everything in life have its counterpart? 

Tell me about your lives! I really love getting messages and just talking to you guys. Here's a shoutout to Alexis Yip of Fabulously Bold who was so sweet and sent me a message about what to do in SF! I'll reply you soon!
