The oversized vest, the shirt, the trousers, its all about menswear with a feminine flair. See you with my next post.

Red, White and Blue

Hope your week is off to a good start. Here is a quick outfit that I almost didn't post because I didn't get good shots. You can tell because I have the same pose in all pictures but well... Here you go.

Ruffled Neck

Monday, November 10, 2014

Hello! My apologies for not posting the past week. Daylight saving totally messed up my schedule and I wasn't able to take pictures. As I have mentioned on the blog before, I don't wear outfits just to take pictures for my blog. All outfits you see are outfits I have actually worn out to events, outings etc... Most of the time when I dress up however, I don't get time to take pictures immediately so I mostly wait until Sunday to take pictures of any outfits I wore during the week. It got dark super early last Sunday than I anticipated so I wasn't able to take pictures for the week. Yesterday however, I had my timing right so I ended up taking four outfit pics. This outfit is one of them.
A few days ago, I was browsing online looking for inspiration when I came across a dress I posted on my instagram. As I was posting the picture, I thought to myself, why not make it. Luckily I have fabric so I went to sewing the next day. I am quite pleased with the outfit and couldn't wait to wear it. Both my sisters also wanted the exact style so I ended up making two more.

Painting in Camouflage

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

My favorite month of the year is coming to an end...le sigh... I can't believe it because just the other day I was celebrating my birthday. My friends from college came into town last weekend for a belated birthday celebration.  We started our day at paint nite to catch up, continued our night over dinner, then ended up at the very campus where we first met and walked down memory lane, literally. When I pictured my birthday celebration, this was exactly what I had in mind. It was a relaxed day with lots of laughter and catching up. I was very excited to spend the day with them especially one of my friends whom I hadn't seen in about 7 years.
For the day, I wanted to wear something casual yet put together. Paint nite is really not messy but you never know when a mishap will occur, so always make sure you wear clothes you wouldn't mind getting paint stains in them. If you and a group of your friends are looking for a fun way to have cocktails and chat, I suggest you try paint nite. I have gone twice and I enjoyed both. I don't "drink" but its still a good ole time. 
I completed my outfit with this camouflage anorak jacket. I think anoraks are the perfect transition piece for the seasons. So when I saw this in the store and decided to get all three colors, my sister questioned my sanity. But thats fine, some classic pieces deserved to be bought in every color available on the racks.

DIY: Cropped Rhinestone Sweatshirt

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

OMG...Its been foreverrrrr since I posted a DIY, and this is is not because I haven't done any. I just always forget to take pictures of the steps. Sometimes, I remember and take pictures but I don't post it because the pictures really don't explain the process well. This however is a super easy DIY. Simply follow the steps below and you can add rhinestones to anything. Turn a simple t-shirt into a festive top for the holidays or in my case, a sweatshirt. I may also do this for a tee shirt.
