DIY David

My youngest brother David loves DIY projects, particularly studding clothes, shoes, and making his own glass or iron-on bead pendants.  He's probably the most stylish person I know.  He cut off the arms of a thrifted denim jacket, studded the shit out of it, added some flare and a stick-it-to-the-man message scribbled on the back (his passion for politics far surpasses mine).  Also wearing: vintage Ray-Ban "Outdoorsman", gold Timex "Indiglo" (he's also a watch aficionado), Kill City "Wire" jeans, Dr. Martens 1460 Boot(the same style I bought when I was in high school).

I was gifted these earrings from hitchcock, one of my top three favorite Seattle boutiques.  They're gold safety pins -- a little bit of DIY, little bit of antique, little bit of punk.  My friend and shop owner Erica wore this lipstick in her hitchcock blog and I had to have it.  Black Cherry by Revlon. 

In Theory...

I'm in the Nordstrom Rack dressing room in a Theory LBD.  I'm a sucker for anything that shows off a woman's back, which is the most beautiful part of her body IMHO (in my humble opinion).  It was a beautiful matte satin bias-cut below-the-knee dress for $100.  Problem was the bias cut was sloppy and bumpy.  No one likes sloppy nor bumpy. 

Posh, Baby, Scary, Korean Spice

This was taken at Ho Soon Yi in Edmonds.  Trust me, it's worth the drive.  I love how Korean food is so colorful -- it's all about the side dishes.  And the stews, the spicier the better.

You're the Shiniest

In the spirit of the holidays, I told my brother David that I hate Christmas.  His response, "Of all the Esther Shins in the world, you're the Shiniest." 
"Charlie Brown, you're the only person I know who can take a wonderful season like Christmas and turn it into a problem. Maybe Lucy's right. Of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you're the Charlie Browniest."
