Happy Summer, folks!
In spite of the blogging hiatus (trying to tan and squeeze in some beach days in the midst of NYC work life) I’m always happy to come across new people, new content, new art. Enter Hollywood’s “It Girl” Elizabeth Olsen — the name behind the Elizabeth and James brand and of course, the sister of none other than mega style icons/blogger crushes MK and Ashley Olsen.

Elizabeth, despite being the sister ‘behind the scenes’ (relatively speaking) is a style icon and rising talent in her own right. She has had breakout roles in Godzilla, Martha Marcy May Marlene, and her most recent film which is still in production, The Avengers: Age of Ultron in which she will star as The Scarlet Witch. Definitely a teenage action star in the rising. Being related to some of fashion’s darlings doesn’t hurt either. Below is a fashion shoot video for Flaunt Magazine where she casually stars in ultra-contemporary designer wear in Brooklyn (my new favorite borough). Take a look, revel, and yes. Be Jealous.

Off the Cuff. Look.Book.

The last couple of months in New Zealand were a whirlwind of

intense fun, awe, flirtations, happiness, hopes for the future, and ending

with sad goodbyes.

Now I am back in New York City – it’s been a week and a half since I’ve been back

and now that I’m finally getting used to the real world again I thought

I’d begin by resuming this blog :)

Chel and I have been on a 6 month hiatus and I do apologize for our…

negligence. haha!

And I think slowly but surely as I get back into the habit of things again

you might notice more influences from my study abroad experience -

so look forward to it!

Whaddup New Zealand


Kie Ora! I hope everyone’s holidays went swell :)

I arrived in New Zealand last Sunday and it is absolutely beautiful here in Auckland

(oh! and the accents!)

New Zealand is not really known for their fashion, but

I think there is a lot of potential here in my opinion!

One reason I say that is because of NO Magazine– Rumi

was recently featured in it as you can see…

And there’s the site: Front Row Diary that covers

NZ fashion. Go check ‘em out!

I just ordered my Canon DSLR yesterday and so hopefully I will receive it soon

and take lots of pictures to post up :)

‘Til then!

We will all laugh at gilded butterflies.


So it’s been a long time but I finally found some time to post!

Unfortunately, both my grandparents who I grew up with

were hospitalized this summer and so I’ve been busy running

around in between hospitals and rehab centers. I’m telling you, it’s a full-time job!

And I realized fully how much it sucks to get old.

Anyway, that’s the reason why you haven’t heard from me in a long while.

As for this post,

I was walking down the street the other day and found the rapturous Megan Fox

on the June cover of Elle. There are no words to describe her, especially

in this amazing A Wang number!

Bye for now ( you probably won’t hear from me for another while)

xx, MJ
