It’s really hard being serious (for photos) if you see the kind of poses my husband would ask me to do, maybe I’ll save some for outtakes one day….but sometimes, the best photos are captured unplanned and candidly, in a secluded alley wearing your favorite little DIY red skirt.

Black and white together is no doubt classic and timeless but it’s not a big happy family until there’s some kind of colors thrown in. I actually had on flats, this tee and hair pulled back for running errands but right before we went out for the evening, I threw on heels, touched up hair and added accessories. It’s amazing how a few minor things can change the entire outlook.

Specking of accessories, the winner of Monee Elizabeth’s Chain Link Necklace is Valeria L., and the winner of Monee Elizabeth’s 25% discount code to her store are MJ M., Evelin, Abby A., M-d Varity, and Amalia R. Congrats!

The weather was so warm this weekend that it prompted me to pull out this H&M watercolor floral tank dress. I love how all the colors are splashed together into this pretty floral print. The stretched cotton fabric with a low back detail was perfect for a night out, but for daytime, I layered it with a crisp white blouse.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and for those who celebrate, Happy  Chinese/Vietnamese New Year! xoxo

Never Judge a Dress on the Hanger

My first impression of this dress on the hanger was “frumpy.” It was loose without any shape and looked almost lifeless. In fact, I wasn’t even looking for a shirt dress with a high low ruffled hem, but when I put it against my body, the silky soft material was the perfect length. You see, finding a maxi isn’t exactly easy when you’re 5 feet tall so I’m always kind of thrill to try on a maxi that might not need hemming.

Well… it was frumpy on but with the bffs: a waist belt, a denim jacket and some accessories, the dress went from drab to (IMHO) fab. Just like a book, you can’t judge by it’s covers, you can’t judge a dress when it’s on a hanger…My accessories and shoes were kept neutral for that boho-chic vibe and I threw in a burgundy (I wish the word oxblood would go away) bag for a subtle hint of color.

Metallic Leopard

Snapped some photos on Saturday before I headed out to a friend’s bridal shower and a holiday party. Since both events was in the daytime, I wanted to tone down this metallic leopard (party) print skirt with something neutral like a chambray top (which goes with just about anything btw). Isn’t the color and print of this skirt gorgeous? I felt like it was made for me ’cause I fell in love with it the second I saw it! :)
