~fresh new backdrop~

dress: express
watch: guess
tights: bcbg
shoes: steve madden

hello everyone! today my excellent photographer friend from college kindly helped me take these lovely photos in front of this gleaming fountain. it's almost february, yet the sunlight here is still as strong as ever, unlike what i'd become used to during dark boston winters ^.~ sorry i had to squint my eyes so much in the photos, the sun was uber bright, though i was happily basking in its warmth. leave a comment and let me know what you guys think =)

ps. photos courtesy of jerzy szablowski. his websites can be seen here: and here: thanks again!

~peephole pumps~

top: united colors of benetton
skirt: banana republic
shoes: unisa from dsw

this skirt reminds me of spring and warmth, and i hope my lovely friends living in boston and other cold areas can experience some of both soon. i like the skirt's color and the accent added by the buttons with gold borders. the side peephole on these pumps is also most endearing and for me, cancels out the fact that the front of the shoe has a squarish toe, since round-toe shoes will always be at the top of my favorites list. leave a comment and let me know, what do you guys think of the outfit?

~sick day~

shoes: rocket dog

hi guys, today i am awfully sick. this is the first time i've gotten sick since i left cold, cold boston, so instead of an outfit post, i would like to get your opinion on these plaid shoes...i've had them for awhile, but haven't worn them much. what do you think would go well with them? thanks!

~black boots~

tunic: express
belt: macy's
tights: express
boots: naughty monkey

this is the same dark purple tunic i blogged about in my first post that i promised to dress up, worn in a different way. i was recently gifted the white motorcycle helmet seen here, and am planning to take motorcycle training classes this year - how exciting! and wearing these black boots makes me feel like i should be doing just that, riding a motorcycle in them. what do you think? =)

~colors galore~

tank: papaya
cardigan: the limited
shorts: express
tights: the limited
shoes: mia from dsw

i am having so much fun making this blog, so thanks to everyone who is reading! this entry is inspired by the weekly color brigade challenge on kileen's "cute & little" blog. the task is to create a creative outfit consisting of at least 3 different colors, and here i have chosen to use green, black, and white. let me know what you think =)

ps. for anyone who is planning to start a fashion blog, make sure to get a tripod. i have learned my lesson after hearing, "photos...not again..." everyday, hehe.

~stripes, anyone?~

tshirt: forever 21
cardigan: express
skirt: h&m
tights: express
shoes: mia from dsw

my dear friend just asked me to make posts containing cocktail dresses, and i will happily oblige in upcoming posts, but for now, stripes are fun, don't you think? even my closet in high school was full of stripes, and i haven't stopped liking them since. here is a color-coordinated black and white outfit!

~beige pumps~

sweater: h&m
skirt: banana republic
shoes: ann taylor

i just bought these beige pumps from ann taylor - their very last pair and in size 7 nonetheless! here, i have chosen to pair them with purple and argyle, but i love how they can match with so many colors. by the way, i adore argyle; some people have even commented that i must like clothes with any sort of pattern containing shapes, lol.

~i heart tights~

cardigan: express
blue-patterned tank: the limited
skirt: h&m
tights: bcbg
shoes: michael kors

i wore this outfit to a potluck dinner party last night, hence the photos taken in the dark. i have a small (read: big) obsession with tights, and these sparkly ones are my favorite. i just purchased them from bcbg and have found them to be very versatile; not to mention, the tights at bcbg are very sturdy and high-quality compared to other brands of tights that i own. feel free to leave comments!

~hello boston~

tunic worn as dress: express
flip-flops: american eagle

i had a blog years ago with a friend in which we talked about super silly things; however, this is my very first real blog since then, and i'm excited! my inspiration for starting a fashion blog was seeing "j's everyday fashion" ( and "cute & little" ( i like the girls' styles, the layout of their blogs, and the idea of creating outfits to share with others.

for my initial post, since i'm not able to get someone to take photos of me right now, here is a photo taken last summer on newbury street while i was still living in boston. (oh, boston, how i miss you sometimes!) i would have worn heels, but i had to walk around all day, so i will do a post later in which i dress up this tunic =)

my goal is to create a fashion blog where i can share outfit ideas and gather comments and opinions from others, so please feel free to follow my blog and leave comments. thanks, and until next time, stay warm!
