Teal

Just got off work one day and felt like taking some pictures of this $50 outfit 🙂 Affordable fashion is the best kind of fashion. 🙂 Photographer – My dad | Location – Home | Editing – Me (Did not do a good job :-(, the lighting at home was difficult to play with) The dress and necklace are both picked out from Forever 21, and shoes are from Suzy Shier. The cost of these 3 pieces together is under $50! Of course I got them on very extreme sales, and I just wanted to share the happiness with you guys. I am no longer 21 years old but that does not stop me from shopping at Forever21, regardless of what my salary is. The sweater provides a general shape to my body, is very comfortable, and most importantly it’s teal! What’s not to love? This is one of my favorite necklace, it works amazingly on anything dark colored. Can’t say the shoes are super comfortable, but every pair of shoe/heel require some getting used to. Its cuteness definitely ease the lack …

Black & White. Color.

Hi Lovelies! Before I went out, I decided to capture my outfit of the day. Did I mention here I am wearing simply the coolest earring? Four butterflies hangs on it! I am wearing a long furry sweater/cardigan on this chilly day. It is comfortable, it is warm, it is fashionable – all that come at one cost, it sheds fur! But I still love it regardless 🙂 I remember running between two malls to find my size (this is $50 from Garage!). Inside I am wearing a very simple black dress found at a boutique. It is one of my favorite styles but it is a rare find, I bought it with zero hesitation after seeing it. It is high-low, but it is not flow-y nor does it flare out. it is cotton material and although it does not provide a shape, it is slimming 🙂 You must have seen these shoes many times by now (and bag). The MK watch is a new find though! Oh and the necklace, apologies that I did not shoot a …

Fall Chic

Hi lovelies! This was actually a very cold day! But I decided to sacrifice myself for the blog. They were taken nowhere fancy – near my neighborhood 🙂 Here I have a black romper with collar from from a boutique on Queen St, Toronto, matched with a royal blue blazer from H&M, and black ankle heels from Aldo. Cool thing about the romper is definitely the back! Super funky rectangle cutout. It’s a bold look showing back like this, but I considered it versatile because I can simply throw on a top with it, or blazer.   Here’s me trying to pose like a model.  The model shoot continues. I matched my with white leaf earrings for some contrast – they are my current absolute favorites, you will probably see more of them in my future posts. xx.

Didn’t Think Floral Was You? – Think Again

Hello beauties! There is a nice small beach near my home and I decided to pay it a visit one last time before the leaves turn brown. If you’re at a beach and not wearing swimwear, you should at least be rocking some floral 🙂 On this subject I have to admit that i used to HATE floral. Never thought it was my thing and it’s just not me. So I spent many summers just watching other girls in beautiful floral and feeling envious. It wasn’t until recent years when I realized that it’s not that I can’t do floral, I just need to find the right ones. The one type of floral irritates me is the very soft-girly-flowery ones (especially in pink) – It makes my skin appear darker than it is and when I look in the mirror my outfit just screams that I’m trying too hard to be girly. So it’s a given that it’s something I would never spend my $$ on. On one magical day, I walked into Forever 21 and my friend picked up …
