Styled this outfit to match my limited edition SNSD x Sheen watch that even comes with a special box! Definitely a must-have for K-pop fans and Korean fashion enthusiasts!
This was so timely (sorry I’m not sorry) because I’ve been obsessing over You Who Came From The Stars / My Love From The Star recently! Jun Ji Hyun has such elegant style in the series, and I love how her accessories are always on point. I just finished the last episode last night, and I’m still bawling like a baby.
Since I like to keep my accessories at a minimum, watches never fail to save the day whenever I feel my wrists are too bare. Instead of stacking so many accessories to create crazy arm parties, I prefer just sticking to one or two functional pieces that can speak volumes on their own. This shimmery, shiny Sheen watch from Casio does the job so well.

Finally got my hands on the white version of this ever-so-popular sweater. I wore a similar item in pink some time ago, but I’ve always wanted a white one that I can wear with anything, regardless of the season. True enough, it perfectly matched the royal blue shorts and ankle strap heels I wore to an afternoon coffee date with the boyfriend. I changed to black skinny pants and black pointy pumps in the evening for a more polished look.
Ankle straps are typically not recommended for vertically-challenged girls because they visually cut the leg off at the ankle and give the illusion of shorter legs, but if the heel height is high enough and your legs are your greatest asset, why not?
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!

Almost forgot about this set of photos from exactly a month ago. I dropped by Belle de Jour's Brew Your Best Year event which was super fun, albeit too short. We were asked to define our short-term and long-term goals within 5 minutes or so, and I pretty much sucked at it because I'm not one to think too far ahead. Life has brought me to where I am now, and I believe I had very little to do with it.
Anyhow, I don’t know why I look different and extra-squinty here. When Rg takes my photos, I somehow end up transforming into another person who just looks like me. Or maybe the other me is myself when I take my own photos and this is the real me. Must stop confusing myself now!
More denim inspiration for those who need ideas on how to rock skinny jeans! I personally prefer to keep it clean and simple when I’m wearing jeans, so I tend to pair them with plain tops or classic patterns that are just as straightforward. Less is more!
