Told you I’d get this skirt in all colors! I’ve worn the blue and purple versions before, and I recently got the red and green ones to complete my collection. If it works, don’t let go. I held on to it so strongly, I had to keep myself from wearing these skirts everyday like some sort of uniform.
Way to go, Sailor Moon dreams.
I’m very predictable when it comes to dressing up and doing my make-up. I rarely drastically change my style to the point of no recognition, and when I do, there’s always some sort of template that I follow. I’ve tried and tested this template enough to know what works best for me and my changing moods, and I’m pretty sure most of you have already noticed the slight changes that I do to keep my outfits as classic and elegant as possible.
One of my most favorite techniques to quickly change how I look is by using different colored lipsticks! I’m so obsessed that I feel totally incomplete without them (the same way I can’t go out without earrings on).
We all have our own morning routines, and mine usually end with a lipstick in hand. I only choose what lip color to wear after I’ve finalized my outfit! I am a personal style blogger after all! I’m assuming beauty bloggers would base their outfits on the color of their make-up? (It would be interesting to do a survey among different kinds of bloggers, lol)
Anyhow, the reason why I leave the lip color last is because it’s my way of deciding what kind of vibe I want to exude throughout the day, and because it is so powerful that it can make the simplest outfits look so much dressier than they really are.
It works the opposite way too. Think your outfit is a little fancy? Try a more subdued lip color to balance it out.
Below are some examples of how lipstick colors can complement daily outfits:
(L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in Wild Tango)
When beige/nude is too pale, pink is too girly, and red is too intense, go for a coral shade. I particularly love Wild Tango because it has slight pink undertones in it that makes the color super flattering.
(L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in Viva Red)
Wearing this bright cherry red color seems to always make people overlook the fact that I’m lazy to accessorize. Count on Viva Red to also give you an instantly sexy look without any skin exposure!
(L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick in Dewy Beige)
One would expect to wear bright lipstick with neutral outfits, but sometimes I like to keep it simple and understated so as not to look too intimidating or too out of place during the day. Dewy Beige is one of those my-lips-but-better colors that need to be in every girl’s bag! I asked my boyfriend which of these three looks he liked most and he chose this one because it makes me and my lips look friendly (a.k.a. kissable? lol).
Enjoy Valentines Day, everyone! It’s also a pay day weekend so it’s definitely the best time to splurge on these sexy new lipsticks!

Just thought I’d start uploading random things like this again. I’m hosted on Tumblr. Might as well take advantage of the platform, right? It’s been such a long time since I last did a photo post.
I was very much inspired by Korean online stores when I decided to upload this. If you’re familiar with STYLENANDA (Who isn’t?), you’ll see that some of their photos are actually animated GIFs. I guess it saves a lot of scrolling time, especially if the photos from the set look the same anyway. I just created this with Photoshop’s animation features! Super easy!
First time in a long time to wear creepers, and I’m still a little on the fence about them. I often see Luanna from Lookbook rocking them so naturally, pairing them with her effortless punk, grudge style that I could only wish to pull off. I do love that they give a much-appreciated height boost without sacrificing on comfort and that the thick soles make them perfect for cold weather dressing, but I still prefer sleeker, more sophisticated footwear that can give my legs a more svelte silhouette.
Anyhow, one day, I just thought it would be cute to wear a more cutesy, not-so-badass outfit with these shoes. Of course, there had to be cats involved.
Because FABRIC. I noticed I unconsciously managed to collect a few of these not-quite-silk-or-satin type of clothes in my closet out of impulsiveness. I go into a store, be all “It’s so nice to touch! I will buy it!”, and end up not using them in favor of my less-wrinkly poofy skirts and cozy sweaters.
I get a similar feeling when I go into a toy store and see all sorts of cute but useless trinkets. On my bedside drawer is a 6-year-old Hello Kitty toy house that looks like a giant strawberry. It’s absolutely adorable but also absolutely useless. Note that I was already in college when I bought it in the hopes of matching my room’s pink striped walls. Way to go, me! Not a smooth choice.
Dumping all these outfits in here before the year ends. 2013 has been a great year for me, and it is probably one that I will never, ever forget. I think my style has changed drastically this year, especially after I got my hair cut and dyed a totally different style from what everyone has been used to all these years. Looking back, it was one of those many decisions that I need to put into my list of impulsive things I did that changed my life for the better.
Today also marks the last day of my 31 Days of Style with Candy! You might have noticed that I’ve been extra active on Lookbook this month and this was the reason why. It’s mostly a story about layering and wearing outerwear. I hope it won’t go away any time soon for those who still need inspiration for cold weather dressing in the next couple of months!
Speaking of Candy, I did a number of medium-length hair tutorials for them last November! I don’t think I’ve mentioned this here before but it’s better late than never, right? I noticed a lot of the girls who went to my book signing events also cut their hair to medium-length - you girls might want to check the videos out for a last minute New Year makeover!
I’ll be leaving for Taiwan soon so I’ll just be queuing posts again while I’m gone! Happy New Year!
