Crop Set Number Two

Thursday, September 25, 2014

I made this last minute outfit the night before I wore it. I just couldn't decide what to wear to a traditional engagement so while trying to find an outfit the night before, I decided to make this. Unless of course you are living under a rock then you already know that of all the trends this spring/summer, crop tops were all the rage. They were everywhere, literally. I have a love hate relationship with them. Its kind of complicated to explain so lets just leave that conversation at that. A part of me wish they will be back again next season and another part just wants them to go away already. I guess we just wait and see what happens next year.
PS... moving forward, I want to talk more about the pieces I make in my outfits posts, maybe a brief tutorial on how I made it and the patterns I used if I happen to use any.

Shades of Blue

Sunday, September 21, 2014

Happy new week? The thought of the year coming to an end scares me a bit. But first, we have to get through old man winter...le sigh... I am in no way shape of form looking forward to it. May the Indian summer continue.
For today's outfit, well my favorite color is blue so there you have it, shades of blue.

End of Summer Wedding Guest

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Hello! The end of summer also means the unofficial end of the wedding season, well at least on this side of the universe. No one really likes to have their wedding in the winter. Fall can be tolerated, I actually like fall weddings but winter? no thanks.
I made this dress about three or four years ago when I first started sewing. At the time, it was my first difficult sewing project. It has since been hanging in my closet until now because I just couldn't figure out where to wear it. I have thought about getting rid of it a few times, but glad I didn't. Now, with what I have learned from sewing, there are a few things I would do differently, but hey it fits so I wore it to a recent wedding.

Gone with the Wind

Monday, September 15, 2014

Hello... Remeber me? Even though it seems I have been gone with the wind because I have been MIA on the blog lately, no worries. My busy work schedule took over my life the last two weeks. Its that crucial time of the year where summer is coming to an end so you are left with wrapping up old projects while starting new ones. I think I have most of it covered so I should be back to blogging again mid week. Until then, enjoy this quick outfit. The dress is from sheinside and the necklace is an old one from aldo.

Comfort Sometimes

Thursday, September 4, 2014

When it comes to fashion, comfort is not always a priority. In order to look well dressed and cute, comfort has to be compromised sometimes. I prefer to wear heels over flats and this is not because heels are comfortable. Its just because I like how I walk and carry myself in them. In my previous post, (see below) I tried to wear heels with my maxi skirt but it just wasn't working so I wore flats. My sister was laughing at me the entire day because I was so uncomfortable and kept complaining about wearing flats all day. Now I don't mind doing errands or other activities in flats for a casual look, but whenever I dress up I always have to complete my outfit with heels.
With that said however I too seek comfort when it comes to my shoes sometimes. These zara sandals featured in this outfit are by far the most comfortable heels I own. I can wear them all day which is literally what I did when I wore this outfit a few weeks ago. I was in them for about 10 hours to hang out with a friend in Boston and I didn't even feel a pinch all day. Now if only all heels were made this way. We can only dream.
