rolling with true blood.

I've been waiting for a really long time for the new True Blood episode to buffer, so I ended up resurrecting long forgotten polyvore drafts. Here are all the ones I've done so far:

'The Notebook' audition tape - Rachel McAdams

There aren't that many actresses I really respect, but ever since 'The Notebook', Rachel McAdams has gained mine and kept it ever since. She's one of the more better names in Hollywood nowadays and also amongst the most talented, though she keeps a low profile in comparison to numerous others.

I was wandering about on youtube (as everyone is prone to doing at some point in their boredom) and found her audition tape for 'The Notebook'.

*sound of a brain spontaneously combusting*

She has been elevated to a new level of awesome. According to the description of the video, she had only recieved the script for 'The Notebook' the night before and so she hadn't had much time to prepare. I've provided it below:

The director would have been stupid not to cast her.

sequined skirts, yayy, yayyyy-

This polyvore set is testimony to my obsession with sequined skirts. It also heavily stresses my not-really-creepy-stalker crush on Ezra Koenig, frontman and vocalist of Vampire Weekend. I'd die of joy if Vampire Weekend came to Hong Kong, but that's about as likely as Barcelona shipping themselves over to my house in a heart-shaped box. =(

them lace tees look tasty.

Being an ignorant Hong Kong born and bred child, I was only exposed to American Apparel last summer and did not truly appreciate what an amazing brand it was. I did not appreciate my cousins' employee discount at the time either. I did not party and rush over to the promotional store when it opened in Lane Crawford either.

I only realised what an amazing brand it was - is - after all of these amazing opportunities escaped me.

High waisted bull-denim pencil skirts? High waisted swim shorts? Big slouchy jackets? These are all things that are hard to find here- at the moment we're big on drop crouch pants, layering (as always) and it's raining too much to even consider pulling out a twopiece. I was wandering about on the AA website, as I'm prone to doing when I'm bored, and clicked on a button that never really interested me before because it seemed so overdone. This button read 'Lace'.

And now I really, really want not just one lace shirt, but two. (For anyone looking to buy me a birthday present, they're specifically the Jacquard Lace tee in navy and El Salvador in nude). Here are some images of people I thought looked amazing wearing them.
