Outfits: An Excuse

Actually, to be very brutally honest. I don’t know what is so awesome about these outfits. They’re really, really, really, dead simple to put together.

But I guess it’s just an excuse to take photos of myself while I look good. And heck, I might as well post them after I’ve gone through all that trouble of taking them right?

The green top is definitely the outfit maker here.

Curious enough, 2 years ago I would have sworn I would never wear a horizontally stripped skirt because I’m rather conscious of my larger hips and thighs. But thin stripes, the curve hugging structure, the darker tone of the fabric and the fact that it is highwaisted (or rather that i’m wearing it highwaisted) lets me get away with it, with a trophy in hand.

The outfit above, I wore to work and a few meetings in the same day (phwoar!!), the outfit below was to a cinema to watch Real Steel with my colleagues. (it was an ok movie)

It’s amazing what a good fitted tank top and jeans can do.

And a quick peace sign to wrap it all up.

Much Love,

hey guys, fake haul post!

I have actually bought 4 pairs of shoes recently but I haven’t felt up to wearing them and taking pictures. sooo.

Since I’m broke ass, I decided to go window shopping on etsy, haven’t done that in ages. so. here we go 😀

(clicking on image brings you to the page to buy the item.)

saw this on the front page, it SO PRETTY, it looks broken and falling apart. and it looks so useddd! and fragile. lol. I speak of it as though a bird. I love things that look like they’re destroyed ❤

from the same shop, I LOVE THESE, the shape is so pretty! but I don’t quite know what to make of the red beading detail….
it looks abit like… a plant disease? I don’t know, is it so ugly its right? or pure ugly? help me.

the perfect head band. to either have people think you’re absolutely off your rocker, or fashion forward, I pick the latter.

what it looks like on, I doubt the antlers will stay up all day though. IDK. its so fucking cute I’d wear it anyway.

thus far everything’s been from the same shop xD

beautiful scarf, for any occasion. I can see someone just wearing this, drinking coffee at starbucks. white tank and jeans.

beautiful statement making but very tame gloves. pieces like this still, I feel, are statement making, and the best part is because they are not in completely screaming “LOOK AT ME” you could pair this with other quirky pieces.

these are cuffs, they don’t come with the shoe. AKA, YOU CAN PUT THEM ON ANY PAIR OF SHOES YOU LIKE!

I love the romantic feel these ooze.

simple, almost common, design now. but still ever eerie and ever pretty.

I want this one so bad. but then again I’ve always been a sucker for wings.
the face is abit strange, but I think it adds to the rustic-ness of it, n’est pas?

OKAY, I’m going to have to stop here. I can’t window shop anymore or I’ll actually buy something.

Please tell me if you all like this kinda post so I’ll do it more often 😀

ALL ITEMS HAVE BEEN LINKED TO PURCHASING SITE, none of the images are mine. If you wanna buy them, CLICK 😀

attempted smart casual.

I went to my friend’s wedding the other day.

Its supposed to be smart casual, but I don’t think I do smart very well.

The priest, as he arrived, asked me if I was the bride, I didn’t realise he was talking to me.

Later he beckoned me over and asked

priest : are you the bride?
me: oh, haha. no la.
priest: oh. because if not I would have asked you to change to trousers.
me: *in head* WHATTHEFUX? DOMYSEXYLEGSOFFENDYOU?

!!

if I had been the bride imagine how I would feel!
if its a bride’s wedding day, she should be able to wear whatever she likes!
anyway. I love my gloves *-*

First Outfit Post from Karen J

I went out for Dinner the other day and in the last minute rush of it all, I came up with this (and had time to snap before I left). I like!

This was the outfit I had wanted to wear, what I actually did wear is a little varied. I wore black sparkly flats instead of my immitation Jeffery Campbell wedges because I was going out with my mother who is already only up to my shoulders, wearing wedges would have made me two heads taller.

Outfit Sources:

  • Top: A thrift store in Romania
  • Skirt: From Clothes & People
  • Belt: Came with another dress I’d bought from Pull & Bear
  • Clutch: From MDS Collections
  • Wedges: A Spree from Melissa2KS
  • Flats: From the basement of Far East Plaza

The key piece here is obviously the skirt, the outfit is simple, you might even laugh at me for even thinking of wanting to post this up here. But I like the skirt, and it’s an easy to wear piece, yet it’s exactly the kind of thing most girls would shun.

I bought the skirt, knowing I desperately wanted it: I wanted to possess it, but I didn’t know if I would ever wear it. But so far so good, I’ve worn it twice, and that’s pretty awesome.

Overall, I’m happy with this outfit, in fact, it was too easy.

Like, love or hate? Comment tanks yous!

Love,
Karen J.

my decoden handphone case D.I.Y-ed

So I bought a casing for Magdelena, my berry. and decoden-ed the shit out of it. woots.

shes now very pink and very blinged / zhnged / deco-ed, below are the pictures of her in full decoden glory.

most of the crystals are swarovski, which is why it glitters so pretty.


I know right, so pretty. (:
