ヽ@(^ェ^*)@ノ☆.。.:*・゜☆HAPPY NEW YEAR☆゜・*:.。.☆ヽ@(*^ェ^)@ノ
2010 was a pretty amazing year, I must say. I succeeded in keeping up with my new blog & met so many wonderful new (& got closer to old!) friends through here ♥ 
I also feel like I've made a pretty interesting fashion transformation through the months I've been blogging on here... I went through all kinds of phases but I think I've finally (fingers crossed, haha) found the style I want to maintain & grow with until I reach a new level. 
I have to give credit to the amazing gals who have helped me get to where I am today~ Mitsu, Sara Mari, bloomzy, Sami, & the always wonderful Jenny. Thank you ladies for always being so supportive & being such inspiration to me & many others, I'm sure! I ♥ you all!

& to all of my new friends, & everyone who just stops by this little blog, I thank you guys too for being a part of my journey!
I hope that 2011 brings you all health, happiness, & everything you deserve.

(´ω`pq|*A HAPPY NEW YEAR*|pq´ω`)

(Used turtleneck, under miniskirt dress from American Apparel, tights from Target, boots from Nine West, shawl from EGOIST, hat from Forever 21, Chinatsu-inspired nudy make )
On the gorgeous 尾崎紗代子/Sayoko Ozaki in the November issue of nuts

A week ago (I think?) I got this absofuckinglutely gorgeous shawl from EGOIST. I had seen it when Mitsu of Universal Doll pimp, pimp! haha first posted about the fall collection, but after seeing how well she rocked it in this post, she totally sealed the deal for me. 

I wore this out on X'mas Eve while I was playing Ms. Santa Claus for my friends & it got so many amazing compliments! It is literally one of the most luxurious items I have ever owned, so soft & incredibly well-made~ if I ever had any doubts about the quality of EGOIST's clothing, there is no doubt any more ♥

I know I've blogged about how much I love EGOIST style before, but I love that now I can honestly say my love for this brand is justified ( ~ё ̄) -☆

Now I just need more of these items on my body ASAP...

& on a random note, I'm 1 post away from 100!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday (●⌒∇⌒●) 
I myself have been battling a really bad cough/cold/flu thingie & am only starting to feel a little better today (´∩`。) But at least I had a surprise when I came home today... MY VERY OWN IPOD TOUCH~! ♪(*^ー゜)v(*^▽^*)*☆ガンバ☆♪ 

Getting back to the subject of this post though, I thought I would share my gets & what I wore on Christmas Day~

Weekend, Movies & Randomness

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Hi dear blog~

Friday was our office Christmas party, which resulted in me partying all night, which resulted in me staying in bed for the better part of the weekend... THUS MOVIE WATCHING ALL SATURDAY!
ブハハハハ (≧∇≦)人(≧∇≦) ブハハハ

I had been wanting to see 伝染歌/Densen Uta since it came out back in 2007 & Netflix finally had it so I gave it a whirl. It wasn't the BEST J-horror movie I've ever seen, but it was definitely better than I would have expected considering half the cast are members of Akihabara idol group AKB48, haha & yes, I'm a fangirl so stfu

The girls are actually pretty decent actresses though & I liked how the movie made fun of itself at times. It wasn't so much scary as kind of sad & weird, but if you haven't noticed by now, those are just the kind I like ( ̄▼ ̄)ノ_彡☆ばんばん!

See it if you like typical J-horror &/or cute teenage idol singers, haha~
  So last night I FINALLY got to see Black Swan ♥♥♥
Saying I loved it doesn't quite describe how I feel about this film... It's been in my head all day & that is enough to prove it's awesomeness.

Honestly though, I feel like they could have pushed the envelope just a bit more with certain things (I won't say what so I don't spoil it for anyone), but it's really the subtleties that made this movie so amazing. Natalie Portman was gorgeous & genius & officially cemented herself as one of my favourite actresses ♪ラブ(*-ェ-(-ェ-*)ラブ♪ 

& because I promised a snap of my new crash sweater, here it is from Sunday~
 It kind of looks like this one on the girl next to Ena at an EMODA event, no?

see you~


Wednesday, December 15, 2010

I really can't express how much I love this sweater besides dedicating an entire post to it ♥ It's so comfy & fantastic & I love the Stephen Sprouse vibe it gives off.

Also, inappropriate sweater deserved an inappropriate photo haha  ( ̄▼ ̄)ノ_彡☆ばんばん!

YesStyle Hits & Misses

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

Last Friday I received my YesStyle order from a while ago. I'm actually missing one thing I ordered in this photo since I opened the box in my car & it got lost under my seat before I took the photo (T▽T)ノ_彡☆ばんばん!

It was a very monotone order, as you can see! The cute little pink change purse was a colourful freebie though, haha~
Saturday I wore one of the pieces from this order~ this V-Neck Dolman-Sleeve Knit Top from REDOPIN in brown. Of course it looked great on the model, but I ended up belting it because it just made me look like a total bag lady ノ ヽ``┼┐!φ(・c_,・。) カキカキ 
Sunday was a little better with this Long Sleeve Tee-Shirt Dress from SPICY HOLIC in dark grey.  I love the shape & fit of this piece, but unfortunately it's WAYYY TOO SHORT on me to wear as a dress!(ノ_・。)
I do think it will look cute with a pair of shorts & tall socks or OTK boots though

The other 2 items turned out really well, but since I only get 2 days out of the week where I can dress in 'my style,' I didn't get a chance to do any snaps of those!  (´Д`。)
I will leave with just a tease though by saying that I got this sweater from SPICY HOLIC~
This one is a definite hit, haha!  \(○^ω^○)/ 

see you~

all gal pics via ★Desire

Lip colour has been a recent debate in the Western gal community lately, don't ask me why ノ ヽ``┼┐!φ(・c_,・。) カキカキ A few of my favourite bloggers have already addressed it, but I thought I would do something a little different & just show my love for both the classic sweet pink lip & the bolder red lip!
 Gorgeous red lips as seen on Tsubasa & Kana Hoshino.

I think when Tsubasa starts wearing red lips, you know it's a trend that's made the transition over to more mainstream gal haha ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ_彡☆バンバン!Red lips can be spicy cute, as these 2 lovelies show so well here.
 The always gorgeous & fashion-forward Ena has been sporting a slightly different take on the red lip with this amazing coral colour that I've been trying myself lately~
Don't be surprised if you see more gals doing coral soon since I think it's a great transition colour between winter & spring!
& of course, the quintessential pink lip is always lovely~

What do you guys think? Do you prefer red over pink or vice versa?
Loving coral lips?

Back in MODE ★。、:*:。.:*:・'゜

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

(Saturday: 4-ways cardi from random shop, khaki cargo skinnies from EXPRESS, used boots + belt, hat from Target, makeup from Rimmel, REVLON, Kose Cosmagic, Stila + Dolly Wink Sweet Girly lashes; Sunday: top from Tucker for Target, used skinnies + boots (not pictured))

So as you can see, I'm back to doing my version ofmode-kei, haha
( ̄▼ ̄)ノ_彡☆ばんばん!
I was wearing my good old studded beret from F21 with Sunday's code & I really should have snapped with it on so that that outfit didn't look so plain, buu~

Don't get me wrong~ I'm still into a simplified wardrobe & such, but I really missed doing gal-inspired fashion & make (´A`。) I hadn't worn lashes until this past weekend in like FOREVER, & even though it might sound stupid, it felt good to put that extra time & effort into my appearance.

I think at the end of the day, gal fashion will always be my one true love ♥
 So try to ignore Momoko's wonky eye & creepy smile here & enjoy this bonus snap of my favourite mode ladies working it, haha ♪(*^ー゜)v(*^▽^*)*☆

Everything is Beautiful at the Ballet

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Saturday I took Mum to see The Nutcracker since she had never seen it before & to this day I still think it's the perfect Christmas-mood-setting thing to see
It was so perfect too since it was snowing a bit when we left the house to go to the theatre!

On a totally different note though, but still on the subject of les choses du ballet, I can't wait until Black Swan goes nationwide~
 I love impossibly crazy psychological movies like this.

Anyone else heard the buzz on this movie yet & wanna see it?

see you~

X'mas ♥

Friday, December 3, 2010

This weekend my goal is to get all my X'mas cards in the mail & I'd love to exchange cards this year with any of the lovely readers of this blog if they wish! 

Just send your (real, haha) name & address to my email: honeylovejam(at)yahoo(dot)com. Let me know if you want to do a card exchange & I will email you my address in return ♥

To those of you whose addys I already have, you can expect to receive a card no matter what, haha

Some Things Recently

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

☆ Some recent gets~ I need more accessories in my life & this leopard fur bag with chain strap made me die of happiness inside ♥ I'm also booming gold jewelry lately... Don't ask me why after all these years of being a silver only girl, haha~

Card love from Emily, Sara Mari & Jenny. Thank you bbs, these all made my day! 
I actually got somemost of these a while ago & meant to post them up, but you know how lazy I am ☆ミヾ(#`Д´)σ[ノ ヽ``┼┐!]
☆ My only Black Friday purchase.  I've been wanting one of these crazy convertible tops ever since I missed out on the FP ones from last year & I couldn't resist this one on super-clearance. It's really just a cardi but I can't wait to try it out as a wrap top ♪(゚▽^*)ノ⌒☆
US fashion magazines. I think I was just bored in the checkout line & picked these up, though I WILL admit to always adoring NYLON's innovative styling & being in love with creative director Joe Zee from ELLE ♡

Parting Shots

Saturday, November 27, 2010

(Thanksgiving Day: Dress from LIP SERVICE, tights from Target, used boots & necklace; Black Friday: Loose fitting cardigan from F21, Dolman-Sleeve Ruffle Top from MYHEART, used skinnies + fur boots + turban, Baby-G timepiece, eBay'd raccoon tail, Alice in Chains bag; Today: Cropped striped wool sweater from Take Out, Ankle Zipper Trousers from F21, used pumps + random jewelry)

So it's almost the end of the long holiday weekend, buu (´A`。)
I braved the non-existent Black Friday crowds at the mall yesterday just to walk off all the crazyamazingdelicious food I ate on Thursday & came to the realisation (again) that online shopping is god, hahaa ☆ミヾ(#`Д´)σ[ノ ヽ``┼┐!]

On a fashion note, I've decided to say f*ck it & roll with the Ena Matsumoto comparisons lately ♡ I love how this last season LIP SERVICE dress looks like it was a sample piece for Ena's EMODA line. I finally wore it, Mitsu!  ( ~ё ̄) -☆

Don't ask me what I'm doing in this mannish style get-up today though...

Public Service Announcement

& speaking of friends, I wanted to take this opportunity to give a shout-out to one of my dearest ones, Mitsu, who is having A FABULOUS GIVEAWAY on her blog! Go & check it out!

Tucker for Target

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

Promo image & lookbook images courtesy of nitrolicious  

The Tucker for Target collection actually hit stores back in September, but I was lucky enough to pick up a few pieces on clearance recently. I think what I spent on these 2 blouses & tunic dress was 40$ total~ that's like the price of just 1 piece at retail value, haha ♪(*^ー゜)v(*^▽^*)*☆

Anyway, I'm really glad I was able to snag part of this amazing collection since I love the muted colour palette & use of prints ♥ The pieces themselves are pretty well-made too.

I wish I had gotten a chance to get my hands on that grey jumpsuit in the first lookbook shot~ it looks like the perfect mix of comfy casual for those lazy autumn days. Throw a scarf & boots on with it & go. Damn waiting until the last minute to shop this collection(−_−)ノシ・・・ハァ・・・ 

see you~
