WHAT DO YOU SEE? A quick post as I'm scrambling to fit everything into a suitcase. I'm headed to CHINA for 3 weeks, and as you know the Great Firewall doesn't like Blogger (personally I think it's a plot to keep all the kids from distraction but they find their ways - I'm looking at you, World of Warcraft gold miners). Hopefully I can get a VPN.

Wore this dressed-up casual outfit for exploring dowtown San Jose and some yummy Vietnamese dinner (6/10). I really enjoy the strong lapel on this forest green blazer, thrifted for only $4 at Thrift Town in San Francisco when I met up with Whitney and Mallory of WhitWatWear. It fits like a glove and looks especially flattering in the back, flared yet fitted. Thanks for a great time, girls! Speaking of these fun and giggly gals, they made a tutorial on how to make DIY inkblot tees! This was a super cool, unique, and fun project (see their video here) - you need a bit of soft fabric paint, posterboard, and a simple, preferably white, tee. So all in all this project only cost $8, materials and all :) Talk about awesome. And shhh don't tell but this entire outfit cost $25 including accessories.

So, what do you see in this inkblot? I see Frank the bulldog from Men in Black, JJ sees a scary clown, and I've gotten responses from "a fat tiger" to a crying woman. Let me know in a comment because faux psychoanalysis is fun.

I love the blazer with denim shorts look! It looks so summery there. I see... a weeping lumberjack in the ink blot?

Love the blot -- my guess was sunglasses-wearing gorilla on instagram I think, or was that on your DIY post, can't remember! Ah! -- and great jacket too. Have fun in China! Hope you got that VPN, whatever it is ;).

Ah fabulous outfit! I used to go to school around Downtown San Jose, so the background of those pictures look familiar (: The inkblot tee is especially fab, I see a bulldog too! And the small blots towards the end kind of look like a pair of tulips...

"a fat tiger" Hahaha. I don't think those tests are very revealing. Lol. I always take them and I'm like, "Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly....All of these look like butterflies."

Anyway :P Love the sandals. I would buy them if they were my size.

Your t-shirt is awesome! I see a man's face. I feel like a top like that would be a great conversation starter. And I really like it with your blazer!

I LOVE this t-shirt, I really want to make my own inkblot on a shirt of my own!

It looks really cute - I might make a more grungy version with bleach and a black vest top.

If I manage to do it, Ill post photos on my own blog !
