This shade of red in spring/summer is so rare and refreshing, especially among the sea of pastels and pale colors that are being sold everywhere recently.
Once again, I’m wearing a one-piece dress because the summer heat has been drastically draining all my creative juices. I’m the laziest person when it comes to coordinating separates right now, but at least, in the future, if I run out of inspiration, I can always backtrack to this season where I wore nothing but dresses. There are so many things to appreciate about visual (online) diaries, and being able to look back in order to improve my present self has always been one of my favorites.
P.S. I caught a stomach virus last week, and it was an absolutely horrible experience. Thankfully, I’m fully recovered now. Take care of your health, everyone! Happy Sunday!
Never mind that my title totally sounds like a campaign for recycling. Dresses are really my lifesavers this summer, and I must say that this particular one is such a fun piece to wear. White dresses make the best templates for experimentation. Imagine it like a clean sheet of paper that has yet to be modified in any way. The possibilities are endless!
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!

I know I’m rarely seen wearing this many colors all at the same time. What happened and why did I suddenly turn into a colorful spring fairy? It seems that the transition arrived a little bit too early this year!
Last night, after the Gingersnaps 20th Anniversary event (will blog about it soon), I had an hour to kill at the mall while I waited for the boyfriend to pick me up for dinner. I pretty much headed straight for the racks where all the pinks and pastels were. Resisted the urge to spend unnecessarily, but I was thisclose to buying at least 1 bright and colorful item in every single clothing store.
It is way too early for this.
P.S. My hair is growing at an abnormally fast rate. Haven’t decided yet if I should keep the length or grow it out!
Ultra cute and sparkly Christmas flats? Count me in! More often than not, I’d rather accessorize with sewn-in bling rather than pile a ton of accessories on top of each other. I always try my best to look as chic as possible using the least number of items. Seems like age has really turned me into a practical dresser!
I opted for Le Bunny Bleu’s Sina flats to a whole day of errands and meetings, and to a night out with Rg as we celebrated our 3rd anniversary together! The lack of heels make it casual enough for daytime use, while the presence of embellishments make it dressy enough for a date. If you’re looking for the perfect sophisticute (sophisticated and cute) pair of flats for everyday use, this is it! It also comes in brown/beige if you prefer something lighter that can also suit your spring/summer wardrobe.
There is an on-going sale for those who want first dibs on stocks and sizes (best to go today before people go crazy), but starting tomorrow, January 27, the entire fall/winter collection (examples here) will be 50% off!
This includes all their flats (including the ones I’m wearing here), sneakers, and boots. Time to stock up on these romantic vintage shoes that many K-pop stars love (examples here)! Totally eyeing the Viola loafers, thanks to a photo of a Crayon Pop member wearing them, so I’ll definitely drop by the store during the sale! See you there!
Visit them at 5th floor Bridgeway, East Wing Shangri-la Plaza (654-2599) and 2nd floor Glorietta 5 (955-7225).
