(Motel Rocks dress, Topshop blazer, Freedom heels, Forever 21 belt, Balenciaga bag, Lannel Boutique MAC Russian Red lipstick) Hype this look on Lookbook here. Thanks Kristin for helping me out with these pics!
Recently I’ve been keeping a lot of my older clothes out of my closet because I suddenly couldn’t help looking at them anymore. It’s extremely hard for me to let go of my clothes, especially the ones that were my favorite at some point. However, my age is getting the best of me and now I feel like I have to start looking more grown up, and let go of that teeny bopper girl that used to post so many cutesy things on her deviantART back in 2006. Fast forward to 2013 and I swear my tastes have changed so immensely that I never thought I could even pull something like this off in a million years. I have not exposed my chest in a looong time, lol. I love my high neck and collared tops and dresses too much.
Well, to be honest, I am still not completely comfortable taking the more mature route all the way, but I think it’s nice that I’m trying out new things. I admit that I’m in a very in-between stage in my life now where I have absolutely no idea what to do anymore, but at least it’s doing my personal style some good by going all confused and making me dare myself to get out of my comfort zone. As to where this will take me, I still have no idea! But hopefully I can transition to a sleeker style as the year passes.
Then I’ll get bored with it and start wearing my ruffly pink socks and ribbons again… The cycle never ends!
Just when I was about to get tired of high-low, asymmetrical skirts… this one arrives on my doorstep, thanks to one of my good friends and favorite bloggers, Tin. These kinds of skirts are everywhere now, but this particular design is super special since it looks nothing like the usual chiffon ones that are sold commercially in different mall stores and online shops. Such a breath of fresh air to receive an original design from one of the people I’ve always found so much potential in. Thanks again, Tin!
Aztec print is something I never thought I could wear since my general style isn’t too bold, but who could resist this glorious (and classic!) combination of deep red, black and off white? I certainly couldn’t.
Wish the world had more of these to save the day.
Cinched the dress with a belt to give it a bit of shape, but from the back it really looks like I’m wearing a cape. Love the flowy fabric that sways with my every move. I managed to wear this as a lame fashion tribute to the Avengers movie since Thor is one of my favorites! We all know he has this long red cape (that matches his godly, silky “Thoreal” locks), and I figured that it’s totally the right time to bring my own cape out of my closet!
Now all I have to do is to pray that I may one day have Scarlett Johansson’s curves to pull off a tight-fitting bodysuit!
Anyhow, my body clock is still screwed up ever since I got back from Europe… thus the whole blogging at the most obscure hours thing. :P
I look quite different here! I found love in a lipstick called Frivolous Pink, by YSL, and it’s been giving me this summer tan which I really love! Got it a discounted price back in Changi Airport last week, just after my grueling 13-hour flight from Paris. I swear Singapore has one the best airports EVER. It’s one of my happy places! So efficient.
Anyhow, outfit-wise, this top is super interesting since it’s not your ordinary button down with the usual shoulder cut-outs. Don’t you think it’s a good innovation for summer? Something that can be both conservative and daring? I tried wearing this with black skinny pants too, and it can totally work as a sophisticated top despite the arm exposure!
Matched my purple necklace with my purple heels, because I’m predictable that way. This is something already quite different from what I normally wear, but I couldn’t help but inject a certain kind of “Tricia”-ness to it. That’s why it’s called “personal style”, right?
