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,

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.

panda hair ties, they make you feel 10.

I brought out my Panda Hair Ties which I bought in Bangkok, and decided to. wear them.
holy. I don’t know how I summoned the courage to even step out of the house lol.

I love them though, they really make me feel about 10 years old.
and of course everyone on the street took me absolutely seriously with hair like this. obviously. how could they not?

again, my camera is crap but this is what I wore my Pandas out with.

my baseball jacket is LOVE, its super versatile simply because it IS A BASEBALL JACKET, meaning its so damn casual you could wear it with everything.
I got it in Paris *insert SmugFace*

army shorts from BKK go well with a normal white tank.

I’m lucky I don’t work in the corporate world.

outfit post.

my camera sucks testicles, it amazes me how all these pictures were taken by the same camera. but oh well.

I was on my way out the other day (realistically this was about 3 months ago) and just snapped what I was wearing.

I really don’t wear mid drifts all that often cause being a girl, I think I’m fat. its genetic. nothing we can do about it. sorry.

my glasses are worth a giggle from all my friends cause they have no lenses. as I have (insert boasting tone here) perfect eyesight, I find it super annoying when there are lenses, they kind of distort my vision.

my mid drift crop jacket/top, I got it from camden town in London for 10 pounds. I love the print, almost victorian.
when I first saw it I thought it was gorgeous, but I was abit concerned about looking like a hip-hop wannabe. throwing on glasses and shorts, I think I managed to not look too much like a poser.

LOVE necklace is from claire’s I think, from the kid’s section (I’m so hipster yeah.)
pretty bunny stud with moving legs, I got from hongkong from those stores with like a trillion stud options.
hellokitty with hipster glasses stud, I got from claire’s as well. I’m super sad cause I lost one side while I was in Thailand. serves me right for bringing my favorite pair of earrings on holiday.

panda ring from accessorizes, cost me a wooping 6 euros for a piece of plastic. but it is adorable so well worth it regardless. I wear it so often its lost abit of its nose paint.
my nails are painted pelican gray from china glaze.
I looked high and low for a gray polish and I absolutely love this shade from china glaze. 😀 I also have a crackle version me thinks, got to dust that one off and use it.
