Happy Halloween!

One of my costumes this year from over the weekend.  As suggested by Jessy from The Little Dust Princess, I turned the outfit I wore in the summer to a wedding (link to post) into my Halloween costume this year as Cleopatra.  Best $15 dress ever!  The headpiece was DIY – a elasticized band of sequins and Christmas beads decorations from Michaels.  The belt was from one of my costumes from dance.

PFC #18: What to Wear to Impress your Date

DSC_3385-16

This month’s fashion challenge hosted by Easy Petite Looks challenges us to wear an outfit to impress our date.  For myself, honestly my secret is to just dress comfortably – because if you feel comfortable in your outfit it will show through.  If I’m on a dinner date, I try to avoid wearing white or light colours, just in case any accident happens with mustard or any other condiments – that’s my secret!  I find that most guys like girls with hair down, so that’s another outfit tip. read more »

Petite Fashion Challenge #17: Candy Colourized

I absolutely love SewPetiteGal‘s theme for this month’s PFC.

The Challenge: Candy Colorized
Take a bowl full of colorful candies (M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers, jelly beans, etc.), close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces.  Now use those colors (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble.
**Extra brownie points if you post more than 1 colorful ensemble or if you add a DIY element (because I love DIYs so much!) :D**
My selection of candy:

Cadbury Mini Eggs

Cadbury Mini Eggs

This challenge turned out to be harder than I thought.  Maybe because my choice of candy (mini eggs) are pastel colours and I don’t have many pastels in my closet!  I did have a small pink purse, but I forgot it when I went out to take photos, so just use your imagination!

Instagr.am Fun!

Been getting addicted to Instagram…though I always want to work on and practice using my DSLR, sometimes its not practical to bring it around!  Plus quick and easy editing options!  Some outfits from the past several months.

DelectablyChic! Social!

Even with my busy schedule, Cynthia’s DelectablyChic! Social was a must-do on my list yesterday.  Unfortunately I had night class so I couldn’t stay long and was only there for a little over an hour – the party had barely started!  A few photos from the night.

The venue…loving the dress lampshade, genius!

Anteprima Wirebag

Last summer while in SF my friend had a bag that was really unique – the Anteprima Wirebag.  I was really impressed with the bag, it was a unique item and I was surprised I haven’t seen more of these bags in North America.  She told me that it was only available in Asia.  However, during Christmas my friend was visiting from Hong Kong and helped me purchase a Wirebag Catena clutch.  This “wire” is basically very similar to “gimp string”.

My 16 Hour Adventure in Vancouver, BC

During the past Canadian long weekend, a close friend was getting married in Vancouver but I had other commitments back home in Toronto, thus resulting in an extremely short trip to Vancouver.  I went to the airport in my dress for the wedding.

B.A.D. Campaign and Celebrity Sightings!

 

Last month I participated in ShoptheMag.com campaign in supporting in promoting Asian designers.  I have only a limited number of clothing items from Asian designers and limited knowledge of the Asian fashion industry, becase I rarely go to Asia (twice in my life only).  However, with the internet, Asian designer clothing are much more accessible.

I sent in the following photos for their campaign.  The clutch is from a Hong Kong brand Anteprima.  Their handbags are unique in that they are made from gimp string!  For a while as a kid, making bracelets out of gimp string was all the rage!
