Navy is the definitely the new black. Blue has always been my favorite color, but sadly, I only really got to build my navy wardrobe this year. All this time, I’ve been so fixated on black that I haven’t been able to pay any attention to any other alternative. Until now! I find that navy is a lot less harsh than black, yet still manages to give off a similar whiff of sophistication. I’m obsessed. I need more of it in my life.
To be honest, navy used to irk me a bit whenever I’d go shopping. Store lighting makes it so difficult to differentiate the two sometimes, and of course, the last thing I want to bring home is an item in the wrong color. I’ve been consciously looking for it nowadays, but I guess I have to wait until the F/W collections are available before I can go out and splurge on all things navy. It’s already July anyway? Just a little longer!
I thought all-white, girly and frilly ensembles would stop working on me anymore once I dyed my hair dark, but I just proved myself wrong with this outfit! It just goes to show that you can still be as cutesy and girly as you want without having to dye your hair light brown or blonde EVER! My hair quality is a little better now that I had the ends trimmed off, but it’s still nowhere near the quality of my virgin hair from… err, 10 years ago? I can’t believe it’s been this long. Somehow, I missed this natural look.
Anyhow, I actually have a ton of little white dresses that I haven’t worn yet, and I think now is the best time to whip them out of the labyrinth that is my closet. Black hair on white clothes is my new thing right now.
That moment when Apartment 8 decided to make a tent dress again! And in my favorite blue, no less. Though it wouldn’t hurt to have this dress made in all colors possible - it’s such a simple and classy design that will surely last a long time in every girl’s closet.
But of course, my real agenda for perpetually worshipping this kind of silhouette is the fact that you can eat all you can, and your lunch buffet stomach pooch will never show. I hate holding back, lol. Tent dresses are my savior!
Platform sneakers always save the day. I’ve been living in flat shoes and low heels lately, because comfort is my top priority this summer. I’ve also been keeping my accessories to a minimum because combining them with sweat? The grossest feeling ever.
I personally prefer the look of platform sneakers more than wedge sneakers (though I don’t have anything against the latter and have a few pairs myself). I’ve seen a couple of Harajuku girls wearing this type of sneakers during the past few times I was in Tokyo! While my personal style is far from being inspired by Harajuku street fashion, there’s no denying how adorable they can be when styled properly!
Speaking of Japan, I’m off to Tokyo tomorrow! 楽しみにしている！
Showing off my shoulders with this dress I can see myself wearing even after summer. Cold shoulder trend is still going strong, it seems! Good for me because I’ve always loved this silhouette even when I was a lot younger. There’s just something so subtly sexy about showing the neck and collarbones instead of the usual chest/waist/hips/butt (which are all not my good points).
