White on white with a hint of rose gold always makes for a clean, classic look. I haven’t been wearing these kinds of outfits recently but all the pretty S/S 2014 collections made me temporarily drop my favorite dark hues.
I’ve had this dress in my closet for a while now but never really got to properly wear it out until now because I felt like it was too plain to wear on its own without any accessories.
If I wanted some contrast, I would’ve worn the black version of this Morellato jewelry watch set (it exists), but I wanted to do something high key for a change. What do you think?
I personally love the pop of white accessories against the white dress, especially since I’m not too fond of wearing anything too loud. I’ll just let my hair color and plum lipstick do all the talking!
Morellato’s got some really nice watches to complement their accessories. Obsessed with the subtle crescent moon on this one!
Last year, I went to Hong Kong with my good friend Jee, and she sold me the idea of layering tops over dresses. She wore a cute sleeveless dress as we enjoyed Disneyland together, but when I saw her getting a thin-fabric top from her bag on the way back to the city, I knew things were going to be interesting. Jee-nius idea, really. I don’t know why I’m only trying this out now.
Normally, when we travel, we think of bringing jackets in case the weather becomes chilly, but who would’ve thought you could achieve the same-ish effect for less luggage space? It’s also a pretty good way to re-work all your flirty summer dresses for the rainy season.
Next time I just might try layering tops under dresses too.
My top reads “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”
…or more accurately, yellow-green. I’m so in love with this dress as the color is not quite yellow, not quite green, and you guys all know how much I love things that are in-between. Okay, I’ll stop with the lame rhymes now.
As this dress came all the way from Korea, I decided to just keep it simple with gold accents, slicked back hair and red lipstick. I haven’t been lightening my eyebrows with blonde eyebrow mascara recently, thanks to a new obsession on simple and straight Korean eyebrows. I can’t say that I’ve crossed over to the ulzzang aesthetic completely, as I’m still applying Japanese-style eye make-up. But it wouldn’t hurt to find a compromise between the two, I guess? (Though I haven’t really heard of anyone who has actually dared combining these two styles together.)
I can see myself wearing this dress 10-15 years down the line. But I’m actually risking it by posting this here because I’m pretty sure that my mom will steal it! This is totally like, her style and my style combined.
Temporarily brought the long hair back for this outfit! I’ve been missing my hair a lot recently, and it’s comforting to know that there will always be a quick fix to my hair woes - wigs! This particular one I love for the pink-brown shade and pink highlights. Trimming about 3-4 inches off this wig just made me realize how there could only be one reason why I surprisingly didn’t do a shabby job! I mean, considering that this was my first time cutting hair, I think I did pretty well! I must’ve been a hairstylist or haircutter in my past life.
Found yet another perfect spring/summer dress - off shoulder, breezy silhouette, with tasteful blue + blush floral prints. I really think that there will never be enough off shoulder/cut-out shoulder details and loose dresses that can ever satisfy my fashion lust. The only thing I’m looking forward to now is a fall/winter-appropriate version of this dress to add more confusion to my already confused wardrobe. Maybe in a classy plaid or houndstooth print that I can already imagine would look great with a pair of black knee-high boots.
Something about white dresses scream simplicity, purity and elegance, and it must be me just associating it to bridal gowns, and well, first communion dresses.
Skip the puffy sleeves, eyelet fabric and ribbon belts, and you’re left with a basic white dress that can serve as the perfect blank canvas for anything and everything.
Obsessed with these little white dresses (or LWDs) nowadays. Coincidentally, I’m also wearing an LWD in the photo for Preview’s Virtual Style Awards nominations, which I’m honored to be part of, along with Camille, Kryz, Laureen and Kookie. Winning the award is a long shot (especially with my more-basic-than-basic life and style, and the fact that this 4-year-old blog has never hosted any promos for people to follow it and therefore being left behind a bit) but the recognition is enough to make me cry virtual buckets!
Vote for your faves! My un-high fashion smile invites you in!
I went through the very cliche route in styling this dress and paired it with dressy heels and a gold clutch, but I can’t wait to wear it again in a completely different way. The challenge is on.
P.S. My hair is growing at an abnormally fast rate. Let’s grow it back to the way it used to be, shall we?
Went all-out pastel and girly with this one, as I am clearly milking the last few weeks before I shift to my favorite fall/winter fashion. Somehow, without me realizing it, my spring/summer style has immensely matured throughout the years (I mean, compared to this from ‘11). Well, admittedly, I’ve been a little lazy, turning towards simpler, more practical stuff that don’t really require that much fuss. Dresses are a no-brainer as you don’t have to think too much about styling separates. Aging, whyyoudothis
It’s time to rejoice! Apartment 8 will be releasing these feminine fit and flare dresses soon, and I can’t be any happier because this is pretty much my favorite dress silhouette of all time.
This style has been popular since the 50s, and fortunately, it never really completely disappeared through the years. This spring/summer, however, it seems like people have fallen in love with it all over again. You can’t blame anyone - fit and flare dresses are classic, versatile, and immensely flattering.
If there’s one dress style that can do no wrong, this is it. Pair with heels, flats, and even sneakers! <3
The little white dress. Looks super innocent… until you see the back!
Obsessed with all of Apartment 8’s new embossed fabric!
Such a wonderful contrast! The dainty bow and the surprising backless detail together? The perfect mix of cute and sexy.
Spring/Summer’s got dreamy, flirty watercolor prints this 2013! Definitely for those who have always wanted to wear art on a daily basis! Bless whoever brought these prints back as the trend includes both ends of the spectrum - soft pastels on one end. and bright, vivid colors on another. I love it when trends give you options to choose from even if they follow the same theme! I guess I have a thing with the concept of being one-dimensional, though I’m pretty sure I have a tendency to become one-dimensional myself. Or at least with the very little stuff I reveal on this blog. By now you’ve all probably established that I am a huge introvert and don’t go out socializing with new people a lot or revealing so many things about my private life (travels excluded), so… here’s a cool related article before I run off to my own world again!
