Sail The Streets

When I was gifted with this new Parisian pair of shoes, all I could think about is a new outfit post.  Haha!  Excited much =P  Seriously though, I’ve always loved Parisian shoes for its comfort and style (not to mention its affordability too!), and this brand new pair is everything that I claim that it is:

It’s a wide-strapped chunky-heeled pair!  Very much on trend in the international fashion scene, simply because it’s a flexible style….it can easily be paired with just about anything….from skirts, to shorts to pants, whatever you feel like wearing it’s going to rock with this pair!  So anyway, here’s what I’ve put together for today:

A striped maxi dress with a high-slit on the side is my pick for today.  I’m actually wearing it as is with my new pair of Parisian heels.  The mix actually has a resort vibe going, thanks to the marine-like stripes.  But since I’m not heading towards the beach or a leisure spot, I’m making my look a bit more street by adding a cropped denim vest.

So there you have it, my look for today!  Hope you enjoyed this!  Much love!

Lip Smacking

Ever had those glow-in-the-dark stick-ons when you were a kid?  I remember sticking them everywhere possible, but my favourite were in my room’s walls and on my shirts.  I remember using Elmer’s glue to keep them from falling off, haha!  But anyway, that was a really long time ago.  These days, we don’t need to go through that much fuss just to have a shirt that glows.  And the proof is right here in my ootd:

It’s a shirt with neon lips!  And it really glows in the dark too!  Funky cool, isn’t it?  Paired it with a light-gold mini and some Adidas kicks (with neon shoe strings!) to complete my funky cool look.  Actually, it is also quite a sporty street look, don’t you think?  =)

Accessorized in the same colourful pattern with ‘em plastic rectangular hoops.  NO, they’re not glow-in-the-dark!  For heaven’s sake, it they’d be, I’d look like a walking neonlight, haha!  So, thankfully they’re not  =P

Anyway, here’s to another lip-smacking ootd!  Much love to all! Mwah!

Party In The USA

Today’s outfit inspiration?  Put your hands up, it’s a party in the USA!

A little Kesha-ish and a little bit Miley Cyrus-ey, but it’s one fo the most worn and accepted style especially for outdoor parties.  Not familiar with the look?  Here’s my take:

A loose USA flag-print racerback top + high-waisted ripped shorts + boots = party outfit look

Now add a black moto jacket, some dark-rimmed sunglasses and a sling bag and we’re all set to go….ala-pre-teen MIley Cyrus singing “Party in the USA”  =P

So let’s get the party started!!  Hey hey!!

This One's A Keeper

Maroon isn’t exactly a favourite color of mine, and that is why I hardly ever buy and wear anything in that shade.  But since my mom’s friend gave me an item in that specific color, I felt obliged to use it. 

A maroon tank top with silver round studs all over the neckline!  Eye-catching, isn’t it?  Well, I decided to do a biker chick look with it; but only a little more softer with the help of a white skater skirt.  Took my favourite lace-up boots for today’s ride and completed my biker chic(k) look with of course, none other than a biker jacket.  The latter’s a bit different than the usual leather type material of biker jackets, and instead it’s in a soft denim fabric.  It’s sturdy and structured and it looks more polished and would even look good as a corporate blazer  =)

That’s it for today.  Till then!

So It Seems

If there’s one garment that I’ve been overusing lately, it’s the boyfriend jeans.  Othen than the fact that I’ve re-discovered their fashion-friendliness, but I’ve grown quite attached to its loose comfort; something which is rather hard to come by these days when it comes to jeans.  So for today I’m doing a BF jeans rehash:

I love the rugged charm of the BF jeans.  You can go with its mannish feel or make it ladylike and sexy by using the right pairing and accessories.  For this look, I decided to go with a mix of both.  Went with the boyish look of the jeans by wearing it as is and by using brogues as my footwear.  For my top, a long-sleeve crop lace blouse helps to make my look feminine and may I say, sexy as well.  Added a beanie for that model-off-duty look, hehe.

Here’s to another happy day ahead!  Mwah!!

Perfect Skies

Westerners love wearing all-white ensembles, and while most of us here in the country do too, some of us, still, by nature of his/her culture/traditional, may not necessarily be allowed to wear such. 

I, for one, am often discouraged by my elders from wearing full white outfits, as it symbolizes death/mourning in traditional Chinese culture.  And being the obedient daughter that I am, I have refrained myself from wearing all white ever since.  But once in awhile though, I manage to get away with near-all-whiteness.  How?  Just by adding some touch of color.

My white tank + white jeans combo is accompanied by an acid-wash biker jacket and skyblue pointed pumps.  It’s pretty much a basic white + blue color, which actually reminds me of perfect skies  =)  Just added a pair of sunglasses for effect.

So I guess I won’t get frowned upon by my elders now with this look, right?  *wink*

Preppy Girl

Do you know which style best represents a preppy look?  For me, it’s the cutout collar top.  -There’s something ‘school-boy-girl-like’ in a collared shirt, and pairing it with any kind of bottom still gives off that vibe.

Paired my cutout top with a skater skirt for a girly-preppy vibe.  To add some details and to make my look a little more catchy, I decided to make use of a pair of lace-up boots and a bowler hat.  Finished off my look with an envelope clutch. 

A satchel would look much more preppy than an envelope clutch, but I changed it last minute, just because I didn’t have much to bring with me and the envelope clutch is well-enough to suit my needs  =)

Anyway, here’s to a fun preppy day ahead!!

Harem Jumpsuit

What’s the best outfit to go for when one is feeling lazy to dress up?  I’d say it’s a piece of jumpsuit (or at least, in my case, that is).

It’s the easiest thing to get into, so it’s my go-to outfit whenever I’m feeling lazy to mix-and-match.  It’s basically just pull-it-up-and-go, haha!  Just kidding!  We need to dress it up a little, of course.  But before that, do you know what I like about this jumpsuit of mine?  It’s  this harem-like cut!  That while it’s just a very plain black jumpsuit, the cut makes it so much interesting!  Just add some gold accents (mine, a gold belt) and a good pair of pumps and I’m all set to go.

My only complaint with this outfit though is the fact that it can be quite an inconvenience whenever I have to take a leak, haha!

But anyways, let me deal with that on my own.  Have a happy and fun day ahead!

To Die For

Once in awhile we find something that we just absolutely need to buy.  And for me, it’s this edgy top:

A laser cut top with the shape of a skull!!  Cool, isn’t it?  I got it in one of my sourcing trips abroad and I’ve actually sold a couple of it too before =)  Have used this top too before, so it’s practically a rehash.  Sorry, guys, I know you all love it fresh, but since I don’t have any sponsors or tie-ups at the moment, I can only afford so much.  But at least, I’m wearing this top differently than the first time I used it for an ootd; that while the laser-cut side was at my back last time, this time I made use of it as my front side!  Sexy front ang lola this time, haha!

Paired my edgy top with a pencil-cut high-slit skirt and some equally edgy lace-up boots, and completed my look with a bonnet. 

So would you guys now agree that the top is TDF?  =)

Happy Halloween and a great weekend ahead!

Sweet Nothing

I’m quite taken with crochet / knit apparel lately.  They’re just so delicate and so sweet despite their intricacies.  Much like us, ladies, don’t you suppose?

I’m feeling a bit complicated today, actually.  Wait, is there such a thing as that?  Well, whatever.  I decided to wear a crochet-on-crochet style today.  Wore a cream crochet top in a floral pattern together with a pink scallop-designed crochet skirt.  I initially wanted to pair it with sneakers, but since I’m keeping with the full-crochet apparel theme, I ended up with my lace-patterned heels instead.

So, do I look sweet in this look?
