Hello to you too

Seriously, one of the best things after a day at work is coming home to find that the awesome people at Solestruck have sent you a brand new pair of shoes. Amazing!
I was so excited but a little worried because I have such awkwardly sized feet (a UK 3/4 depending on the brand) but these Jeffrey Campbell Mary Janes fit me perfectly and are so comfy! Of course I had to whip out my clashing teal tights to show off the burgundy-purple colour to it's full effect!
Oversized Vest (Topshop), Cardigan (Handmedown from Grandmother), Belt (Vintage), Tights (Topshop) Hair Bow (Accessorize) Shoes (Jeffrey Campbell at Solestruck )

Thank you so much to Danielle and all at Solestruck !

I was also tagged by the the awesome Emma for this humungus quiz.

[1] What are your current obsessions? Black and white graphic tees, dark nails, Hello kitty for MAC big bow lipstick
[2] What is your weirdest obsession? I don't think it's particularly weird but I do drink green tea all day long. My friends also think I'm odd when I pull out my camera all the time to snap pics for the blog! I can't help it, inspiration is everywhere!
[3] What are you wearing today? Still in my clothes from my part time job. Floral Skirt, tights, Grey vest top and a purple cardi.
[4] What’s for dinner today? Mom's cooking which consists of rice, stuffed peppers and pak choi. Sounds much fancier than it really is!
[5] Why is today special? The sun is shining which is good news for tomorrow's BBQ at my friend Hannah's!
[6] What would you like to learn to do? I would love to learn to knit...but I should really get round to learning to drive.
[7] What’s the last thing you bought? A skirt from work which I will have to take a photo of, it's actually really cute...and you can check it out here
[8] What are you listening to right now? 'Because I'm stupid' by SS501. I'm not usually a fan of Korean pop but I really like this one.
[9] What is your favorite type of weather? Breezy summer days, perfect cardigan weather!
[10] What is your most challenging goal right now? Hopefully getting accepted for a marketing masters and ultimately getting a real job and not being a SA for the rest of my life!
[11] What do you think about the person who tagged you? I love her grungey style and her recent Dellal inspired hair! Emma, you are pretty awesome!
[12] If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be? Hong Kong so I can be closer to my grandparents.
Becky, Me, Hailey and grandparents.

[13] What would you like to have in your hands right now? A big fat cheque so I can worry less about funding my masters.
[14] What would you like to get rid of? All the clutter in my wardrobe....that I can't seem to part with. I need to learn what is worth keeping and what isn't!
[15] If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Tokyo without a doubt!
[16] Which language do you want to learn? I've taken a short course in Japanese and really need to continue learning so I can actually understand all the Jpop I listen to.
[17] What do you look for in a friend? Easy going, honesty and fun.
[18] Who do you want to meet in person? Vivienne Westwood, she's so eccentric I bet she would be fun to chat to. Or maybe weird. I'd like to find out.
[19] What’s your favorite type of music? I listen to so much. From Incubus to Regina Spektor to Canto/Japanese pop
[20] What’s the favorite piece of clothing in your own closet? Kind of hard to choose but right now, I love my Lion tee that I bought recently at UO.
[21] What is your dream job? I still don't know. Hopefully fashion related though.
[22] Any favorite models? To be honest I don't pay too much attention to models but I've always liked Coco Rocha and Du Juan.
[23] What would you mostly likely spend $100 on? Clothes!
[24] What would you like an endless supply of? Plane tickets, so I can travel to my hearts content!
[25] Girl crush? Hmmm...probably Zooey Deschanel? She's adorable.
[26] Do you admire anyone’s style? Too hard to name just one but I get a lot of inspiration from all you bloggers.
[27] Describe your personal style. I do like a bit of colour and have attempted to wear head to toe in black...but I couldn't do it! My staples are t-shirts and brightly coloured skirts.

Phew...that was mammoth. You can all breathe now.
