OOTD: Too Sunny

This was one of those hot days I actually wished I didn’t step out the door.  The sun was in my eyes, I couldn’t not look at the camera for more than 2 seconds, and if you thought the hat helped…it didnt…I was also wearing these ombre hair extensions, but since they aren’t long enough, they just ended up looking like highlights, not to mention they add to the heat too, ughh. …Alright, that’s probably enough complaining in one post… 🙂 Now, some positivity! I’ve always wanted to try a dress that’s a T-shirt in disguise, like this one! It has a slit on the side, so there are many ways I could style for the bottom, such as a long  pencil skirt, a pair of shorts, or some long skinnys with heels. I decided to go with shorts because as I mentioned in my rant above, it was one hell of a hot day. The coolest part of this is that it’s actually a high-low tee! Thought it was pretty cute and found the concept …

Off The Shoulder

OK, everyone must know how much I adore suspenders by now – denim, long, short, leather straps, love’em all! (but maybe no clip-ons for me). This is a new one I purchased from Guess a while ago, I convinced myself that this was a must have because I don’t own suspenders in white… 🙂 Originally suspenders were worn because they were functional – fabric or leather straps worn over the shoulders to hold up pants. But gradually they were being worn for looks and have been diligently shifting in and out of fashion. I remember seeing old pictures of my mom wearing suspenders before my time, and me thinking that although cute, they were just WAY too yesterday and old fashioned. And look at me now… who could predict? 🙂 the runways possibly… In my previous looks I consistently wore Tees with my suspenders, this time I decided to change that up by going from preppy to flirty 😉 The other highlight has got to be the Zooshoo heels, I love how lengthy they make my legs look alongside the comfort and ease to walk in! 🙂

The School Girl

Oh em gee, my current obsession! A while ago I’ve given some love to the T-shirt dresses in this look. And now I’m back with more! This trend was prevailing in Asia, and is now creeping the local markets! If you are shying away from body-con dresses, this can be your alternative. It doesn’t contribute to a “sexy” look because it’s loosely fitted, but your body will thank you for how relieving and forgiving it is! It also gives off that effortless chic feel and bring out the cuteness in you. To enhance the look, I wore a watch, a backpack and paired some sneakers. I want to call this one – the school girl look 🙂 Sneakers right now is THE trend, and if you preach it like I do, you’re probably on your way to get a pair of Stan Smith right this moment if you don’t already own one.  My pair was purchased from Zooshoo (as seen in my previous posts), it isn’t from Adidas because, well, I’ve splurged enough for one summer 🙂

Tie A Knot

Do you ever stare at your closet and find yourself at a lack of choices? And it certainly isn’t from a shortage of clothes, but rather you just can’t find what you need for who you want to be today! It happens to me only all. the. time. But, I am a firm believer of affordable fashion – splurging should only happen on items that I really like, and not to satisfy my need for more choices. This was one of those days, and having said the above – the alternative to buying new pieces, is of course to work with the existing! I’m not good with my needles and yarns, but I’m all up for simpler adjustments involving scissors, and ….tying knots! 🙂 This blue dress-shirt is actually something I wear for work typically under a blazer, and certainly not something I’d consider wearing casually over weekends. I decided to change things up and turned it into a part of this night-out look. It brings a totally different feeling, hence is now a new addition to my wardrobe at no cost! I wore these cute polka dot wedges because I felt …

Céline Favorites

I present you my current obsession – Céline’s Luggate Tote Mini! I’ve always had a lack of black purses due to my thinking that black bags often hide the detailing of the designs. But if I were to buy any black bag, this would absolutely be it! ❤ The Luggate Tote series came out in 2010, but it didn’t catch the public’s eyes until it was spotted on arms of celebrities. Once it became popular, of course it then became a more exclusive choice and grew considerably in price. Since then, certain styles have been discontinued (i.e. Medium and Shoulder size), but more styles and color combinations have been added to the line. As intimidating as the price tag may seem, it is a stylish and durable product with refined craftsmanship, a worthwhile investment you can proudly add to your designer collections. As much as I love big bags, I believe the Mini size would suffice. But – don’t judge by what it sounds like, it isn’t that “mini” and a size Medium is actually so big! It also comes in smaller scales called …

Let It Loose

I love dressing up to look refined and pretty 🙂 but even then I have my lazy days. This was one of those days! I wanted to wear simple, comfortable/loose clothing, and enjoy the nice weather in nothing but comfort. As much as I love to embrace natural and effortless looks, I’ll still never abandon style. Comfort and style definitely aren’t substitutes and are complementary when matched and accessorized correctly. The tee I’m wearing is shapeless and very thin in material, so I matched it with a tight fitting maxi skirt which provides a shape. The look overall is very lazy, but I stacked my boho bracelets to accessorize – they vary in size & patterns and look randomized, contributing to this “effortless” look, while embracing the boho feel. Hah, don’t you just love this “Be Pretty” message? As if it’s so easy 😛 I got this at the plus section of Forever21! I wear a small or XSmall most of the time, but I picked this up when I was looking for a long loose tee and going to the + section seemed like a good …

Hints of Gold – Part II

Hello beautifuls! As I mentioned in my previous post Hints of Gold Part I, this is the Part II of the look! I separated one shoot into two posts because of big difference in scenery and felt that both were deserving of their own post! This is taken at the park nearby my house, I’m grateful to have this piece of paradise close by. It has a small scaled beach, and is very popular during the summer time! Not to mention whenever it’s holidays, this becomes a scene for the dazzling fireworks.     I believe in fairy tales and all things magical 🙂 I remember a couple years back I came here to this very beach to watch shooting stars and make wishes. Although it was summer time but still freezing cold since it’s near the water and the stars were timed to appear around 1-2 a.m. I’d say it was a good use of time because I did something I’ve always wanted to do. I caught maybe 2-3 stars, and made wishes while not worrying about whether they’ll come true. …

Hints of Gold – Part I

Hi lovelies 🙂 a couple weekends ago, Scarborough had amazing weather, and of course I took advantage of it and stopped by the nearby beach to do this shoot. I attempted a simple look, and tried to dress it up with hints of gold everywhere 🙂 The cute little dress is from Armani Exchange, can’t remember the price, but knowing I’m all about deals, it’s likely under $40. Now let’s talk accessories – Necklace – with a simple dress like this, I wanted to wear a busier looking necklace, so I decided on this layered strands of gold chains with pearls. Earrings – toned it down, very minimal. Should always avoid bold earrings and necklace at once so the neckline area doesn’t look unnecessarily busy. The ones I’m wearing here are small dangly black & white triangles with gold rims. Sunglasses – To go with the awesome weather, I wore these orange shades, with gold buckles on the side. Pouch – this was a super good deal from H&M! $15! The beautiful coral blue immediately caught my eye! Not to mention there’s a gold chain embedded to the …

Fashion Favorites [06/29]

The fashion industry has fast changing dynamics, while we always hold on to our classic pieces, we also develop likes for the most trending products from season to season. Today I am going to share some of the recent fashion favorites with you! Let’s jump into it! ❤ 1) Summer’s almost here! Have you gotten a pair of slides? While we still adore gorgeous stilettos, the minimalism style has really gotten its market share – simple slip-on sandals are EVERYWHERE. It’s perfect for an effortless look on a casual day out. I’d personally go for black sandals for a more chic street feel. In terms of what kind of slides are best for you, I’d say be adventurous and just try something you normally wouldn’t wear! I have a feeling this is going to be a short lived fad, so experience the trend before it goes away! 2) Is that matching wear I see? Heck yeah! At one point I’m sure we all thought matching clothing is a tacky and cheesy concept. But you don’t have to worry about that no more 🙂 You can get with …

Touch of Orient

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a lovely Wednesday! After today it will soon be the weekend 🙂 Over the weekend I shot a outfit which I always loved, a very feminine look with a touch of orient. I achieved it by wearing this beautiful blouse. The print reminded me greatly of Ink Wash Paintings from Asia, may it be Japan or China. The water colored prints especially emphasize so. The blouse top has the color black as outline, so with no question I matched it with a black lacy skirt consisted of a black slip, and a layer of flowery lace. I could have picked one of two colors for the shoes to match the look – black or coral. I decided to go with these cute coral heels, to amp up the femininity and also to go with the warmer weather. To tone down the loudness of my shirt, I picked flowery and light colored designs for earrings and my ring. Heres’s more shots of the look! Click on them to view the slideshow! Thanks for viewing everyone! Hope you liked the outfit! …
