House of Holland

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Code: Open-sleeve dress from EGOIST, tights from House of Holland, scarf from Steve Madden, shoes from Jeffrey Campbell (in second photo), random accessories

Sorry to those of you who follow my twitter & already saw a couple of these photos, but I am so beyond pleased with these tights & had to give a personal thank you to Alanna for sending them to me all the way from the UK for me! ♥

House of Holland is a British fashion house that also happens to have a great line of legwear. Urban Outfitters actually sells a few of their tights, including these badass 'Super Suspender' ones in red too! 

I was also happy to see this photo on one of my style icons 道端アンジェリカ/Angelica Michibata's blog recently~

Dazzlin Spring 2011

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Grabbed these screenshots of Dazzlin's spring catalogue off their website because it is just sheer love ❤ If any brand is doing the girly retro trend right this season, it's Dazzlin. You can definitely see the 70's influence that's been popping up in every collection this season from West to East in the use of denim & big floppy hats, but I also love the homage to 50's kitsch with the simple shift dresses & gingham & dot patterns. ViVi's Sara Mary was also a perfect choice to model this collection~ she's got that cutesy with an edge look down, haha  \(○^ω^○)/

Definitely expect to see recreations of lots of these looks in the months to come!

Sweet Thing

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Spent Valentine's Day enjoying unexpected flowers & chocolates, drinking Disaronno + ginger ale (my new favourite mixed drink) & sampling delicious strawberry mochi ice cream I found by accident at the local Asian market.

Hope everyone had a wonderful day too~!

H&M (hair & makeup) & outfit shots taken between yesterday & today. & yes, it is actually warm enough today for me to wear a sleeveless top!  ☆(゚ω゚☆)(☆゚ω゚)☆ガンバ♪ Spring is right around the corner & I really can't wait~

Makeup was inspired by Momoko's MURUA make with lots of bold lashes & gold tones.  Yesterday's lash combination featured Dolly Wink No. 2 on top & Dear Laura Cute on bottom; today's is simpler featuring just Dear Laura Ethnic Beauty on top.

A special thanks to Hortaru of Something Borrowed Something New for giving me the inspiration for today's messy hair arrange~ this is the tutorial I used after browsing lots of cute hairstyles on the AmebaGG Real Hair Arrangement Catalog ♡ Such a great place for ideas for all hair lengths & types!

& now I'm going to curl up with a cup of tea & enjoy the rest of my relaxation day~ hope you're all doing the same! ♪(゚▽^*)ノ⌒☆

Free People's catalogues just keep getting better & better each month, omg ♡ I'm totally feeling Ginger's sexy, retro vibe & will probably be getting a few of the pieces seen here on my body soon.

Out Of This World

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Jeffrey Campbell Saturn Cut-Out Wedges + Lana Lace Thigh-Highs, close-up, please to be ignoring the mess under my bed ( T ▽ T )ノ_彡☆バンバン!

So unbelievably pleased with the decision to go with the Saturns ♥ Even if they are black & I already own way too many pairs of black shoes to count on both my fingers & toes, haha. 

Funny story about getting these shoes too~ I was originally going to buy them one size bigger from Solestruck since they were sold out in my true size everywhere else, but then I decided to check another website ONE LAST TIME & voilá, there was one last pair IN MY SIZE no less! Score of the century

 & because I love to share good things, my dear fellow blogger Emily is having an A~MA~ZING GIVEAWAY on her blog to celebrate her one year anniversary~ GO & CHECK IT OUT

If any of you follow my twitter, you'll know that I've been buying shoes like crazy lately in preparation for spring ♡ This pair of nude pumps are exactly what I've been looking for for the longest time~ they're the perfect neutral shade that goes with everything, though I cheated this weekend by wearing these easily coordinated blush tones, haha ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ_彡☆バンバン!Only 35$ on sale too~

& because this post wouldn't be complete without more lashes + hair/makeup stuff, here are some bonus shots~
Dear Laura Seductive Beauty accent lashes + Cute bottom lashes, sleek bob + tired look, curly bob + bored camera shot

I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented on my last post regarding my hair~ I really appreciate all the kind words & helpful tips! ♡ A super-special thank you to Cindy & Eden especially for reminding me that short hair can still be cute & fun~

see you~
