I always love a good bow, especially when they come in the softest silk accompanied with delicate pintucks and swiss dots. Foy got me this blouse years back (Valentine's Day if I recall correctly?), and it's one of a small handful of pieces that has survived countless closet clean-outs and Goodwill donation trips. Hope everyone's having a lovely weekend!

Don't forget to check out Phosphene on Facebook, Twitter, Bloglovin', and Instagram (and Twitbook, Facestagram, and ad infinitum...).

Siempre me encanta un lazo decorativo, especialmente cuando es de un seda suave y accompania una fabrica a luneres chicitas con pligues delicados. Foy me dio esta camisa hace unos anos (dia de los enamorados si recuerdo correcto), y es una que ha sobrevivido incontables echados de ropita de mi closet y donaciones a Goodwill. ¡Espero que todas esten felizes este fin!

No olividas a ver Phosphene en Facebook, Twitter, Bloglovin', y Instagram (y Twitbook, Facestagram, ad infinitum...).

Ah, busy days filled with equal parts staring into Illustrator and my terminal. I gave my poor tired eyes a break with a quiet coffee break. It's funny how just a cup of chai or a pourover can completely reset my brain. The collared shirt, sweater, jeans, and loafers has been the go-to look of late. Super easy to slip on, run to a few meetings, before cranking out some wireframes and code. I could wear permutations of this until forever.

Happy weekend lovelies!

Estes dias estaba mirado mitad del tiempo a Illustrator y mitad del tiempo a la terminal. Para dejar los ojos cansados que se descansan, fui a tomar cafe. Tan facil es poner el mente de cero con un chai o pourover. Los ultimos dias, mi ropa diaria consta de un cuello camisa, un sueter, los jeans, y unos loafers. Sencillo, attractivo, y perfecto para negocios, programar, o hacer wireframes. Si fuera necesario podria llevar versiones de esta ropita hasta siempre.

¡Feliz fin mis lectores!

After yesterday's tourist-y post from Chelsea Market, I'm stepping up my game even more posting from Grand Central. Tomorrow? Probably a post from the Statue of Liberty wearing one of those green foam crowns. In all seriousness, I go through this station pretty often. It also happens to be the station's 100th anniversary. You have one year to come here and celebrate. Parrty.

I've finally created a PHOSPHENE Facebook page. Stop by and say hi!

Con la entrada de ayer fuimos a Chelsea Market, hoy les hagan mas turista en le Grand Central. ¿A donde manana? ¿El Statue of Liberty con on somberero verde? Mas en serio, paso de Grand Central a menudo, y este mes es el 100to anniversario de la estacion. Ven, tenemos un ano completo para celebrarlo. Parrty.

A proposito, por fin, puse una pagina para PHOSPHENE en Facebook. Otra vez, ¡ven, di hola!

After a too-long one year hiatus, Phosphene is back. I absolutely can't wait to share with you my style adventures once again. I hope you'll join me on this journey!

Some of you who may have followed Phosphene for some time are probably wondering what happened. Well, I graduated dental school Summer of 2011. After graduation, I made a quick transition to "grown-up life" and started practicing dentistry a little outside of Boston. Seeing and helping patients was satisfying, but I also found very little time for myself, wore scrubs day and night (scrubs don't make for great OOTD posts, though this was the smallest of my concerns), came home each night physically and mentally exhausted to do anything else but pass out on the couch, and soon realized I wasn't happy. I wasn't growing anymore. I was 25, finally free from school for the first time in my life, but could see my entire predictable life in front of me. After 8 months of practicing, I quit. At the same time, an opportunity in NY opened up where Foy and I could pursue a startup idea we had been working on. We got accepted into an accelerator, barely packed up any belongings, and immediately left for New York. It was a hectic, confusing, and wonderful time. Zoom forward, I get to do what I love everyday now--design and build tech products. Each day is an exciting new challenge. I don't get called Dr. Chou anymore, but that's totally ok ;-)

Kicking off Phosphene v2 are some photos we took around Meatpacking and Chelsea Market. For anyone visiting NY, Chelsea Market is a great addition to any itinerary. It's not too tourist-y, but at the same time, you get to experience a whole smorgasboard of shops, crafts, people, and foods in one densely packed environment. Tourist-y and overpriced lobster rolls or not, I still love this place.

Oh, be sure to check out the top bar on this page for some social links. Stop by and say hi!

Despues de demasiado tiempo sin entrada, Phosphene por fin ha regresado. Y asi, ya empieza de volver en tomarles conmigo ¡en mis adventuras de moda!

Yo se que algunos mi los lectores fieles quieren saber, ¿que paso a mi? Pues, gradue del la escula dentista en el verano de 2011, y immediatamente empezo "la vida adulta" como dentista en las afueras de Boston. Aunque ayudar pacientes me puse satisfecha, entretanto no tenia mucho tiempo por mi propia persona. Llevaba scrubs cada dia (¡bueno que no hay fotos de este tiempo!), y cuando regrese cada noche fue tan cansada que no tenia energia pa' hacer nada. Al fin, sin tiempo de crecer mis intereses, supe que no era feliz. Solo tenia 25 anos, y aunque por la primera vez era libre de la escuela, el resto de mi vida me parezo previsible. Al octavo mes, deje mi trabago a participar en un accelerador para nuevas empresas en NY con Foy. Este experienca fue frentico, confunso, y al mismo tiempo, maravilloso. Ahora, cada dia hago lo que me gusta mas--diseno y construyo productos tecnicos. Cada dia me reto, y aunque nadie me llama Doctora Chou, todo 'sta bien ;-)

Comenzamos la 2da edicion del Phosphene, con algunas fotos que tomamos alrededor de Meatpacking District y Chelsea Market. Si no conocen NY, Chelsea Market es un lugar que necesita visitar. Ya no es tan turista, y sin embargo, hay una abundancia de tiendas, compras, gente, y comidas. Y si todo esto no se cansen, puede pagar de mas (como turistas) para unos deliciosos bollos de langosta. A pesar del los precios de los mariscos, siempre me encanta este lugar.

I always love an ultra wearable collection with a touch of eccentricity (holographic pants and double-waisted shorts!) to keep things fun.
Olivier is going to kill me slowly with freaking temptation. Jesus freaking Christ, give me a million bucks.

The shoes are hot but the rest of the outfit just doesn't do it for me. It needs a little bit more in the way of color or maybe even some accessories. online makeup artist

Hi There, I just spent a little time reading through your posts, which I found entirely by mistake whilst researching one of my projects. Please continue to write more because it’s unusual that someone has something interesting to say about this. Will be waiting for more!
