it was *crazy* today & absolutely, 100% of it was devoted to food…hahaha! first off, had dim sum down in chinatown with the kids from the BUKFC since it was their last week before final exams/end of semester/graduation. ahhhh…to be in college again. NOT! then, i went to buy a whole mess of cookies to make a ginormous gift basket for the staff of peenut’s animal clinic...
i can’t say that i jump on every trend that is seen on the fashion landscape. peplums? on my hips? no way. orange? meh. i could take it or leave it. however, as an athletic girl, varsity jackets are something i can *definitely* get on board with :) this jacket is a great thrift find. it’s a boy’s jacket, so fits me precisely right. the sleeves are the perfect length....
*back in boston*
i’ve returned from florida & like after any vaykay, it’s been hard to get back into the swing of things! i wanted to wear something simple & easy today (my go-to casual look of leggings & a long shirt) but i had my jacket on & ready to walk out the door when i forgot about taking pictures…hahaha! gotta switch routines back now instead of just hanging out with...
*sandy pink & ocean blue*
wearing: river island cape dress (via asos) || aldo silver chrome heels || white bead bracelet (baclaran market, manila) || ice.com rings keeping it short & sweet as i’m still here in florida & having an awesome vaykay with my family! also, continuing to recover from the wonderful time i had at my younger brother’s wedding. unfortunately, it was rainy weather the day of...
well, it’s been a rough week and a half as evidenced by my lack of posting lately. first, my cousin (who’s my age) passed away & we had to drive down to PA for the funeral. then, as gearing up to leave town *again* for my brother’s wedding, my poor little puppy had fallen ill & he ended up needing surgery the day after i left. thank goodness i completely trust my...
*maximal print mixing*
i likes me some print mixing, but who doesn’t? stripes with florals…leopard with polka dots, floral on floral…yadda, yadda, yadda. how’s about lace print, cow print & fendi zucca logo though? ha! betcha didn’t come up with that one, now did’ja? wearing: rachel roy convertible jacket || rodarte x target lace print dress || fendi zucca print scarf (via...
*upcoming events ~ elle/sebastian & zoora*
whoa…guess i’m gonna be a *little* busy tomorrow night ^_^
*neverending neutral & perpetual pleats*
i had on some beige espadrilles earlier, but i just couldn’t do it…couldn’t go head to toe neutral & not a print anywhere. plus, the raffia wedges seemed just too casual. so, decided to wear these super old school, striped, pointy-toed ladylike heels instead. i had them out to try to do a DIY with them, but *again* i just couldn’t do it. i can hardly ever use an...
*striped dress à la jason wu for target*
out of all the dresses from the jason wu for target lookbook, this was the first & only one i really wanted. i was lucky that it was restocked & in my size too ^_^ i actually had to go into the corporate office of my software company today, so decided to look a little more business appropriate than usual. to clarify, not technically my software company, but a business i’ve been...
wearing: motel rocks wendy sweater (via akira chicago) || simply vera wang chino leggings || thrifted nine west butterscotch leather boots don’t ask me why i’m dressed in crimson & cream…harvard university colors. i live close by, but that’s about the only correlation. it’s friday…it’s the end of the week…i’m tired. however, wearing...
*ann taylor boston concept store party*
i decided not to blog the outfit i wore to attend the ann taylor party celebrating their newest concept store in boston. because i liked it so much, i’ll wear it sometime in florida when i’m down there for my brother’s wedding. hence, i leave you photos just of the event…the slick penthouse suite party space, the lovely ann taylor accessories in spring/summer...
*hearts & flowers*
who doesn’t love a cute knit cape? this is an outfit that i don’t mind repeating again & again. i’ve never worn it with the whole socks/shoes dealie before though. these big polka dots socks resonate with the teenier pink polka dots on the dress & since i’ve done the bigger print matching similar smaller print before, i went for it :) wearing: jovovich-hawk x...
*military dress uniform*
got a serious case of goofy blogger face today. sooooo, let’s just marvel at the marvelousness of my military jacket that i got in hong kong eons ago…which, let’s face it, doesn’t need to share the spotlight with the rest of my boring outfit…or my stupid face :p
*still in love with safari*
it’s one thing to go all in with the safari look, however…not just leopard print, but actual leopards on the belt (and elephants too)??? well, it’s a dull & dreary monday…so let’s just pile it on, shall we? wearing: vintage safari-style tent dress || target watch || gold leopard & elephant belts via lady luxe || shoemint leopard print “jolly”...
