Some Things Recently

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

☆ Some recent gets~ I need more accessories in my life & this leopard fur bag with chain strap made me die of happiness inside ♥ I'm also booming gold jewelry lately... Don't ask me why after all these years of being a silver only girl, haha~

Card love from Emily, Sara Mari & Jenny. Thank you bbs, these all made my day! 
I actually got somemost of these a while ago & meant to post them up, but you know how lazy I am ☆ミヾ(#`Д´)σ[ノ ヽ``┼┐!]
☆ My only Black Friday purchase.  I've been wanting one of these crazy convertible tops ever since I missed out on the FP ones from last year & I couldn't resist this one on super-clearance. It's really just a cardi but I can't wait to try it out as a wrap top ♪(゚▽^*)ノ⌒☆
US fashion magazines. I think I was just bored in the checkout line & picked these up, though I WILL admit to always adoring NYLON's innovative styling & being in love with creative director Joe Zee from ELLE ♡

Parting Shots

Saturday, November 27, 2010

(Thanksgiving Day: Dress from LIP SERVICE, tights from Target, used boots & necklace; Black Friday: Loose fitting cardigan from F21, Dolman-Sleeve Ruffle Top from MYHEART, used skinnies + fur boots + turban, Baby-G timepiece, eBay'd raccoon tail, Alice in Chains bag; Today: Cropped striped wool sweater from Take Out, Ankle Zipper Trousers from F21, used pumps + random jewelry)

So it's almost the end of the long holiday weekend, buu (´A`。)
I braved the non-existent Black Friday crowds at the mall yesterday just to walk off all the crazyamazingdelicious food I ate on Thursday & came to the realisation (again) that online shopping is god, hahaa ☆ミヾ(#`Д´)σ[ノ ヽ``┼┐!]

On a fashion note, I've decided to say f*ck it & roll with the Ena Matsumoto comparisons lately ♡ I love how this last season LIP SERVICE dress looks like it was a sample piece for Ena's EMODA line. I finally wore it, Mitsu!  ( ~ё ̄) -☆

Don't ask me what I'm doing in this mannish style get-up today though...

Tucker for Target

The Tucker for Target collection actually hit stores back in September, but I was lucky enough to pick up a few pieces on clearance recently. I think what I spent on these 2 blouses & tunic dress was 40$ total~ that's like the price of just 1 piece at retail value, haha ♪(*^ー゜)v(*^▽^*)*☆

Anyway, I'm really glad I was able to snag part of this amazing collection since I love the muted colour palette & use of prints ♥ The pieces themselves are pretty well-made too.

I wish I had gotten a chance to get my hands on that grey jumpsuit in the first lookbook shot~ it looks like the perfect mix of comfy casual for those lazy autumn days. Throw a scarf & boots on with it & go. Damn waiting until the last minute to shop this collection(−_−)ノシ・・・ハァ・・・ 

see you~

Weekend H&M

Monday, November 22, 2010

(Saturday: Lace dress from F21, tall socks from Target, Baby-G watch, Foxy heels; Sunday: Dress from Tucker for Target, skinny belt from Target, Baby-G watch, used bangles + fedora, OTK boots from Nine West)

Just in case you were wondering, H&M stands for hair & makeup, not the store haha ( ̄▼ ̄)ノ_彡☆ばんばん!

I used my Too Faced Naked Eye palette for the first time on Saturday & did my best to copy the 'Classic' tutorial from the little card it came with. I'm pretty happy with the results since it came out really ethereal & subtle, which was a perfect complement for that F21 dress ♡ I also re-dyed my hair last week using L'Oreal Superior Preference in Light Ash Brown since the Feria colour I used last time washed out so fast (´A`。)

Saturday's make was really nude to contrast with the black dress, though I played around with my Stila smudge pot (in Black Cat) to add some drama to the eyes. I'm also officially in love with my Revlon Colourburst lipstick in Soft Nude~ I haven't tried MAC's Myth lipcolour, but from the swatches I've seen, this one is crazily similar to it. This has seriously become my go-to lipstick when I want a natural, yet still glam look~ totally recommended.

I just realised I enjoy talking about makeup way too much.

Style Idol 梨花 & Inspiration + Update

Sunday, November 21, 2010

I could probably post a million more snaps of Rinka & her fabulous Euro-chic style & talk about the reasons I love her ad nauseum, but these recent ones are serving as my 'mood board' lately~ the first photo alone makes me question why I don't have a pair of red rain boots in my life.

Speaking of my life... Things have been quiet (but good!) lately. Spent last night at a ballet recital for my good friend's daughter & had so much fun afterwards being dragged around to meet everyone by a toddler in a tutu ♥  They're so cute when they're not yours, haha~

In other news, I'm looking forward to a short week at work for Thanksgiving & hopefully getting a Forever 21 package in the post tomorrow. Might be going later to take advantage of the last day of Starbucks' Share a Red Cup event too~ a Caramel Brulée latte sounds amazing right about now.

Like A Fashion Blogger ♪

Thursday, November 18, 2010

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED this piece from the December issue of ViVi ♥ They're as obsessed with Rumi Neely's effortless, gorgeous sense of style as I am. I can definitely see myself in all of these looks.

It also doesn't hurt that they used my 2 remaining favourite models for the shoot, Rola & Chikako  ♪(゚▽^*)ノ⌒☆

Monday, November 15, 2010

 (Saturday: Lace top from Free People, metallic vest from Daytrip, used flare-leg jeans & leopard beanie, Foxy heels; Sunday: Studded tee from EXPRESS, skinny belt from Target, Longline Modal Blend Skirt from F21, used wooden bangles, Foxy heels)

 This weekend was fairly warm so I got to rock the Foxy heels sans knee socks ♡ Walked for hours in the mall on Saturday in them too & only got compliments from numerous shop girls, haha~ NO BLISTERS!
Last season's favourite leopard beanie made a (re)appearance too~

Tori ♥'s Jeffrey Campbell

Thursday, November 11, 2010

I am officially the proud owner of 2 pairs of amazing Jeffrey Campbell shoes~ the perfectly vintage-y Foxy (right) & the utterly fantastical Lita (left)

I got the Foxy heels for my birthday & it was love at first try-on. I can totally understand why Asami from Pink Kitten only buys Jeffrey Campbell shoes~ I seriously have never owned a pair of shoes that felt so comfortable & yet still made me top out at at least 170 cm (5'7"), haha (*・∀・)/♡\(・∀・*)
She has definitely inspired me to take on the challenge of only buying JC shoes too.

The Lita boots were a total splurge from last week's paycheck & just make me so incredibly happy every time I put them on ♥

& yes, I am aware that that last sentence made me sound like a total weirdo... Probably even more than referring to myself in the third person in the subject line just did, haha  ( ̄▼ ̄)ノ_彡☆ばんばん!

Bambi Northwood-Blyth is my new favourite Western model. 
Love her & her thick Brooke Shields eyebrows  

Long weekend in NYC taking care of family business has left me so emotionally drained... Here's hoping to better days ahead.

Lady & The Vamp

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

So since the colour splash photo manipulation made my lips red in my last post, I thought I'd post the true colour today & it gives me an excuse to make a new post, haha~
 A while ago I visited the MAC counter & got suckered into trying the dark lip trend after seeing the Fabulous Felines collection & Nonoka's take on it
The sales girl convinced me to get this lip liner though I've never used one before. Someone once told me lip liner was usually for thin lips & I've never had that problem, haha (●´艸`)ヾ 
 My very first MAC lipstick ♥ I'm officially obsessed.
L'aspect final (♥___)ノ♡ 

Can you tell I botched my lip liner job? haha

Nuit Noir

Monday, November 1, 2010

Playing with the photo manipulation apps on Photobucket is fun, haha~
(Dress from Forever 21)

I'm glad I didn't get super dressed up for the amazingly huge group of 6 kids who actually dared to go trick-or-treating on Halloween night.

'Gothic Lady of the Night' was the smart& easiest choice.

see you~
