【S】Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion @ SAM

I’ve always enjoyed going to museums. No matter what type of exhibition I go to, I hardly ever feel disappointed. Most of the time, I leave the museum feeling inspired, satisfied, and even recharged. But somehow, I just don’t go as much as I wish I do- and there really is no excuse for it…Though I know that every time I do go, I wish I can go more. Hopefully this post will remind and encourage me to pay more visits to the nearby museums in the future. 🙂

In my opinion, you really don’t have to know art to appreciate art. The beauty of it is that you can interpret it in any way you’d like. Honestly, I’m not a connoisseur in any type of art- but that could partially be why I love museums so much- I always learn something new. I know this because I’ve written a few blog posts on the previous exhibitions that I’ve gone to- and most of the time I’m more inclined to write when I feel inspired. 😉 Perhaps I can consider sharing them again in this blog!

Last weekend I had the pleasure to finally seeing the “Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion” exhibition in Seattle Art Museum (SAM). Although SAM is still incomparable to MoMA and MET in terms of the scale, I consider we Seattleites pretty blessed already! It’s easily accessible in downtown, and in the past we’ve had a few exhibitions featuring famous artists such as Picasso and Gauguin (I absolutely enjoyed them!) And this time, it is SAM’s first exhibit focusing entirely on fashion- how cool is that? 🙂

【S】Fashion Inspiration: “500 Days of Summer”

Today I’m going to an event on campus talking about Fashion and Blogging. Both are such passions of mine, but for some reason I haven’t blogged about fashion since forever. Maybe it’s just because there are so many brilliant fashion bloggers out there that I feel I’m not unique or confident enough to offer something new. And I don’t really consider myself “fashionable”, but I do appreciate the beauty of it. I guess I’ll ask for tonight’s speakers’ opinions. 

On top of the regular posts that I have written for College Fashion two years ago, I suddenly remember I’ve written a post on fashion inspired by “500 Days of Summer” for our Fashion Club blog. 

Before I can’t find it anymore, I thought I might as well share it here. It might be a good start? Plus I still love Zooey’s style in this movie. 🙂 Keep in mind though- I wrote this when I was a Freshman in college…So yea, that’s enough said I guess. 

Interestingly, 500 Days of Summer is now one of my favorite movies, but when I first watched it I didn’t actually completely understand the meaning. Funny how our own experiences change the way we see a movie…right?

【S】Thanksgiving I: Turkey and Shopping

Dear Nora,

Your Thanksgiving Holiday seems like a lot of fun! Unfortunately, I had never gone to a traditional Thanksgiving fest with an American family (it’s more like a shopping spree for me?)…First year, friend visited (and we shopped). Second year, shopping at the outlet in Seattle. Third year, in Spain. This year, I finally had an amazing Thanksgiving meal (at Pan’s Godmother’), and shopping in Oregon!!!


My favorite was honey ham! And I’m usually not a huge fan of turkey, but it tastes really good with rice… Continue reading
