Line play! I rarely dress up this fancily anymore, but I couldn’t help playing around with the theme. This just verified that I live for moments like these, where I can use my innate creativity and make it manifest in different forms. I used to just think I can only exercise my creativity with my photography and/or graphic design, but through they years, I’ve proven that fashion can be such a wonderful playground as well.

Among my latest spring/summer Lookbook posts, a rogue fall/winter-inspired outfit appears! This was taken just after I dyed my hair darker, so I was in the mood to leave my florals and pastels for a while. Missed this?

I’m off to the US in a while for vacation! I’ll be queueing posts so my blog won’t die while I’m away! I will try my best to make new posts every night. Work never stops when you’re me!

Funky Mother’s Day look because I suddenly felt inspired to do something different with my hair and outfit! I’m officially back from my styling rut! Time to celebrate!

Ever since I was able to achieve this hairstyle, I’ve been totally obsessed. It looks like this when I have my extensions on, so I’m even more motivated to grow my hair out. Time needs to go faster so I can have my long hair back and achieve my Frozen braid dreams. 

Our dog Angel says hi in the second photo, lol. We recently adopted (her previous owner can’t take care of her anymore) a 4-year-old lab, if you’re wondering why you’ve been seeing two labs instead of one in my Twitter and Instagram photos. She’s been such an angel (Sorry, I had to!), and I’m so happy for Bailey because she now has a playmate and an older sister! All has been going very well in the Gosingtian family household.

These photos were taken with my new Sony a5000! Bought it abroad so it’s not sponsored (I’ve never been sponsored a camera, actually! I’m super choosy with my camera gear as a photographer myself!), but it’s a really good interchangeable lens camera that has WiFi. Took me so long to choose among all the WiFi cameras in the market (I was thisclose to getting a Casio TR35 or TR15 but now that I think about it, it’s overpriced at $1000+ and it can only take selfies). Did my research well and I’m not disappointed with my new purchase at all. Hi Sony. I’m impressed! This commercial made me do it.

So in love with this off-shoulder leotard that perfectly matches every item from my extensive skirt collection. The torso length is too long for me, however. I might as well cut the crotch area up and turn it into a regular top. Cue hashtag shorttorsoproblems.

This summer, off shoulder tops are my best bet to not looking too covered-up like I usually do. I’m not entirely averse to wearing things that show a lot of skin - I mean, I definitely wear a lot of short skirts. But balancing them out with conservative tops with long sleeves definitely make me feel more comfortable.

Matchsticks on my top! And I’m literally little because without my heels, I’m only 5’3”. I always get “I thought you were model height!” kind of comments when I meet people in person for the first time. Thanks to proper posing and angles for this false-but-popular belief! And I guess I also have to credit my odd proportions and body type.

Last week, Crissey and I discovered (after 8 years of friendship, lol) that we are about the same height when sitting down, even if she is barely 5 feet tall. I only noticed it when we took some photos together recently. The best Trissey selfies happen when we’re sitting down. When we’re standing, the height difference is a lot more obvious! Discovery of the century! 

Anyhow, life hacks to make it seem like you have legs for days? They exist, and they can help you even if you’re not wearing sky-high heels.

One way is to tiptoe instead of just standing flatly on the ground. Lots of personal style bloggers do this to look more graceful and to avoid looking stumpy. Another way is to plant your foot in front of the other. This is the most effective height-boosting pose for me! It also gives you the illusion of hips if you don’t have any (like me).

Try these out and let me know if these techniques work for you!
