Constantly wearing simple and modern outfits made me miss my old retro-girly style a little, so here’s a quirky twist to that classic vintage look we love, all thanks to my new gray polkadot sweater from Gap. I wore it with a midi skirt for an all-out ’50s feel. God knows when I last wore polkadots, and we all know that it’s been a very long time. I think I’m starting to grow fond of them again!
This is only the first out of three outfits I created for Gap’s global Styld.by campaign. Can’t wait to show you the remaining two!
Just when I thought I was over the sporty style trend, Just G comes out with a new, not-so-cookie-cutter collection that is cuter than your ordinary athletic wear.
At this time last year, they came out with super stylish sweatpants that sold out instantly. How can they not? Nowadays, we all know that multipurpose is the way to go.
Who says you can’t mix in girly details on your favorite gray sweatshirt?
These patterned shorts are so comfortable I’m torn whether I should use them to motivate myself to exercise, or use them as loungewear.
Guess which option I am more inclined to.
And the highlight of this post comes in the form of this skirt that is such a genius idea. There are so many dark gray gym shorts and sweatpants with neon trims - why not make a skirt version?
Casual enough for lazy, everyday dressing, but also awesome enough to be dressed up with bright coral lips, accessories and heels. Pretty much my formula for wearing the trend.
P.S. My new hair color is by Status Salon!
Debuting my shorter haircut and edgier color with new Just G items! Going inside Just G recently has filled me with so much glee, seeing how they’re slowly transitioning from their super bright and colorful S/S collection to a more neutral but still distinctly girly F/W collection.
For a change, I veered away from all the blue and cutesy floral prints this time, and instead wore light colors and neutrals. How can I not? I still haven’t gotten over my hair transformation, and color clashing would be the last thing I want. As one friend said, “It’s like you had one of those major makeovers on ANTM!” NGL, those makeover episodes are my guilty pleasures.
I spotted two army-ish jackets on the racks, got possessed by the Just G spirit, and wore them with contrasting girly elements. If you were expecting me to wear them the cliche way with badass accessories and combat boots, you probably haven’t hung out here long enough to know how I roll.
I think I live for juxtapositions.
This white eyelet tube dress is something that people would normally pair with sandals and flower crowns, but I decided to go for a more modern luxe appeal by pairing it with gold accessories and pointy ankle-strap wedges.
Camo-print and shiny sequins together makes for a perfect day-to-night look.
This jacket is everything! The fact that you can tighten/adjust the waist part to how you want it to look like (i.e. tight style would emphasize the female silhouette while loose style would look great with a pair of black skinny jeans for a more androgynous feel) makes it all the more deserving for a place in every girl’s closet.
I was thisclose to making Peachy Green as the title as wordplay for peachy keen and the colors of my outfit, but good thing I googled it first before publishing, as I found it to be a brand of cloth diapers. Well, cute ones, but still.
Anyhow, I’ve been bringing out all the spring/summer stuff I haven’t worn yet before everyone starts shifting to fall/winter this September. Highlight of this outfit is definitely this trendy off-shoulder/cold shoulder cut that I’ve done a number of times but have a hard time letting go. Once you find a trend that suits your body type, it’d be unthinkable to completely forget about it after the hype is over. It doesn’t seem like it’s going away any time soon though, and I’m pretty sure there will always be a market (case in point: me included) for shoulder-baring anything now that people have had a taste of it this summer.
This is one cliche that I will always approve of. White has always been a staple color for spring/summer fashion, but with the black-and-white color blocking trend still staying strong, it’s the perfect time to invest in all the white that you need in your closet!
A white top can match pretty much anything and everything! I love this particular one as it has this trendy mesh detail that adds a subtle hint of sexiness. Add a pop of neon for more fun!
White pants can be difficult to pull off for most people (and not to mention, can induce major stain paranoia) but the right cut and the right fit can give you a fresh and unique look.
A white jacket need not look like a doctor’s white coat. This particular one has sequins on them, making it a good day-to-night add-on to a seemingly casual outfit. I’m actually just wearing a simple chiffon top and plain denim shorts underneath!
It’s the combination of two different things that made me so happy about how this outfit turned out! Spikes and pearls surprisingly work well together, and I think it’s also very descriptive of my personal style (which tends to be rather bipolar). If you’re still into royal blue color accent like me, feast your eyes on these sky high wedges! They’re definitely one of the most photogenic pairs of shoes that I have.
Anyhow, I’ve been feeling under the weather recently, so I apologize for the lack of new entries (I know I posted this look 4 days ago on Lookbook and I’m only posting a proper entry for it now), but I promise to get back on my feet as soon as I get better! I wasn’t able to share how incredibly tortuous my throat became last December, but I actually got a major fever and a really bad case of pharyngitis before Christmas. Had to be on a soft diet (seriously, on Christmas eve too) and antibiotics for days. I thought that was over until two days ago when my throat started acting up again like it’s desperately trying to claw its way out of my body, which was the same exact feeling I had with my throat last December. Hoping I’ll get enough rest tonight so I can go back to work tomorrow. Health is wealth~
Silver everywhere! The holidays make it so acceptable to go all-out with everything shiny, and it looks like I won’t be getting over it any time soon. Metallics make seemingly-plain outfits look fancier than they actually are, which is always good for those like me with closets full of mostly casual basics.
The highlights of this outfit? My silver Sheen watch and tassel heels. Sheen watches never fail to give off a very classy vibe, and I’m so happy they recently got SNSD to endorse their watches. Check out the new Sheen ad with Yoona and Seohyun on my sidebar! SO PRETTY!
And these heels! Oh, where do I even start? If Santa’s little elves went into a major fashion revolution, they’d probably wear shoes that look like these.
AHH! The quest for the perfect checkered leggings is finally over. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I get really obsessive-compulsive about patterns. High standards, maybe, or I’m just a little sensitive to what I like to see and wear. Some checkered leggings I’ve seen have squares that are too big, or have too contrasting colors. This, one, however… <3
I paired it with a top with cut-out shoulders, and holes that remind me of the ones that you cut out of giant posters and tarpaulins so that air can pass through. Err, yeah. I have the most unglamorous stuff in my head sometimes.
It’s wine red season again, and I went all matchy-matchy with my bag and shoes. These heels are my first pair in this color, and I wear them all the time now! It’s a classy shade of red that’s not too bright and bold. Now available in Schu Trinoma and Rockwell.
