Milking my red hair for all it’s worth by dressing up to make it stand out as much as possible. This means a lot of black, gray and white, and the occasional pop of color that, for me, is a no-fail way to make a seemingly simple outfit look more interesting than it actually is. Outerwear in black is also always classic.
My love for red includes all fifty shades (lol), but right now, I’m particularly loving the super bright kind of red that matches most of my lipstick, and the darker shades of oxblood that is a wee bit more understated than most reds we come across on a daily basis.
This morning, I stumbled upon some older photos of myself, way back when I had really long, light ash brown hair. I looked so different, and I could see why I used to only stick to dainty floral prints and cutesy clothes. It’s amazing how hair color can instantly change your overall look.
Another interesting story from this morning - the first thing I heard from our household helper was that my mom ordered me to eat some leaves. Half-awake me went all like, WHAAAT? And then I found out later on that my mom bought arugula (my fave, btw).
Totally reminded me of that time when I asked her to buy Lays and Ruffles potato chips, and got actual lace and ruffled ribbons instead. Classic!
Seems like I was wrong for preempting the Christmas breeze by mentioning it on my blog once. I can’t believe the temperature rose up to 33.9C a few days ago. And it’s the middle of December! Darn you, climate change. It has been unusually warm in the afternoon, and I was suddenly forced to dress up comfortably with this light and breezy summer ensemble. On a brighter side, it *did* give me chance to finally use my Sylvia Park for Love, Bayo top, which I finally got my hands on! Sylvia Park is an 18-year-old Korean girl who won in the first ever SoFa Young Designers competition.
Some of the pieces that I wanted from the collection were sold out by the time I visited the store, but I’m happy I managed to get my #1 pick. This lace top with shoulder cut-outs is perfect on so many levels. Adorable but with a little edge. The cut-out detail makes for a subtle sexy twist to the common conservative lace top.
12 days left before Christmas, and I’m already ready for summer. Florals and lace are staples in my closet - I can wear them all year round without having to take seasons into consideration. In this case, I wore them in a very country-esque manner, pairing my puffed sleeved peter pan collar top with a fluffy pair of checkered shorts which incredibly flatters my very straight, somewhat rectangular body type. I’m always trying to work around my body type, and bottoms that give the illusion of volume are gifts from heaven sent just for my non-existent womanly hips.
Finding clothes that fit me well can be difficult, lack of proper curves and all, but these items from Love, Bayo fit me like a glove. They sell clothes targeted to girls ages 13-18… which is only fitting (pun intended) as I’ve never had any significant changes with my body shape since highschool. Buying clothes made for teens - story of my life.
Taken from the website: “Bayo is proud to launch LOVE, BAYO - a new line that will surely catch the attention of fashion forward girls.” - It has surely captured my attention! #seewhatididthere #freddiemercury.jpg
