Ladies and ah gentlemen, this is my friend Dian (pronounced Dye-an, not Dee-on), an aspiring hipster/junkie. I kid, I kid. She's one of my closest friends; we go waaaaaay back ... as far back as our ugly uniform, tiny Pasadena private school days.
A lot of people focus on how to make themselves look good IN their clothes, not make their clothes look good on THEM. What I love about Dian's style is not how trendy or "in" it looks; what I really love is the fact that she's good at picking out what looks good on her.
* P.S. - My heart goes out to all the people affected by the 8.8 earthquake in Japan yesterday, and all people affected in the 19 countries where the aftershocks reached. There are Japanese cities up in flames as seen here. If you have loved ones, I sincerely hope they got out safe.
