Yumi Sakugawa Gets It

by Kim on Monday, November 12, 2012

Just found the most amazing illustrated essay: Claudia Kishi: My Asian-American Female Role Model Of The '90s. Yumi Sakugawa is my favorite person right now. Go read the whole thing immediately, adult Dawn Schafer is portrayed as a tanorexic wearing a pot leaf necklace. Can't even handle the greatness of that image.


Brilliant essay. I love gold-digger Stacey!

omg that was amazing. Claudia was my hero too, not because I am Asian-American, but because as a Hispanic I too had precious few role models in the 90s, and for my kid brain, I identified with the jet black hair, almond shaped eyes, and artistic side...plus, I used her to justify my own crazy sense of style. It was OUT THERE.

How cute is this puff ball for a handbag? It reminds me of a powder puff! This lovely piece is actually made of shearling (lambskin) with the wool left a little bit longer longchamp outlet sale for a fun, shaggy look. I know this isn't the season for pastels, but the light colors just seem so fitting. I think my favorite is the baby pink. I don't know why. It just looks so delicate to me.

Don't louis vuitton replica handbags worry though, it comes with a chain shoulder strap as well. This is such a playful piece, I think it would work well for a semi-casual event.
