Trend Report: Layered Ruffles

Top: thrifted | Skirt: Uniqlo | Velvet Shoes: Asos
Earrings: Egg | Bangle: Kate Spade
Lips: The Face Shop Melting Lip Color in Rose Quartz

I am not one to really follow trends. Most of time I am behind by a season or two. I just can't seem to find the reason to purchase trendy items that will most likely be out the next season. But on my lucky days a.k.a days when I go to the thrift store and find something that is on trend, I wouldn't pass the opportunity to purchase something trendy (though lately I have been making trendy purchases on accessories).

Brand To Love: Innisfree

Most of the time, I look at the endorser before I decide to purchase from a certain brand. If I don't like the person endorsing the brand, I tend to pass. But if I like the endorser, I tend to hoard. This is what happened with me and the many Korean cosmetics brands that I love - Innisfree is one of those "many."

San Francisco, California USA (Haight Street And My Favorite Clothing Stores)

This is going to be the last of my San Francisco posts and I am honestly sad about this series ending. I enjoyed my stay there so much and I would love to go back. Of course, like any other trip, there were a few mishaps but everything turned out well in the end and I loved the place. Next time for sure, I will stay longer. And as they say, when a door closes a window opens. Hence, when this series concludes, I will start another one and I am super excited to share my experience. But for now, I hope you enjoy this last post feature Haight Street.

Little Red Dress

Dress: H&M | Inner: Forever 21 | Shoes: Dries Van Noten
Choker: Forever 21 | Belt: SM Dept. Store
Lips: The Face Shop Melting Lip Crayon in Red Nouveau

It is amazing how your style and taste in clothes changes over the years. I was never a fan of the color red and I always thought I looked too skinny in red. But when I saw this in H&M I could not resist. I contemplated hard if I should get it. I didn't try this in store. I was carrying it as I was looking around thinking hard if I should buy it. Alas, I went to the counter and just went for it. Surprisingly, I received so many compliments when I wore this dress and everyone seems to think this is my color. Now I think I like the color red - this shade of red to be exact.

March Sampler 2017

This is a new monthly series that I am going to add to this blog. If you remember my latest Seoul Haul, you would remember me showing off the 1 year (or more) supply of freebies that I got from shopping in Myeongdong. Previously, I use the samples I get whenever I travel. But because I only use a few samples (like 1 sample of BB cream can last for a week so I only bring 1) I decided to start using at least 1 every week. Some of these samples will be expiring soon and it would be waste to throw them away hence I decided to do this series.

San Francisco, California, USA (Golden Gate Bridge And Golden Gate Park)

Sweater, Socks and Sunglasses: Forever 21 | Jumper Dress: The Landmark | Trench Coat: thrifted
Pin: Alice On Wednesday | Sneakers: Adidas | Bag: Le Sportsac 

My San Francisco posts will be coming to an end soon as I am already down to our second to the last day. It was only a week of vacation (7 days to be exact) but definitely one for the books. San Francisco has always been in my bucket list and I am happy to have finally ticked it off.

Man Of Few Words

Top: Stradivarius | Skirt: thrifted | Shoes: Zara
Bag: Michael Kors | Necklace: Forever 21
Lips: Tarte Amazonian Lip Butter in Watermelon

It's been awhile again since I posted anything and I deeply missed writing. However, the demands of the new job hinder me from creating anything that would be sensible and of interest for this blog. Aside from the fact that I am far too tired to do anything when I get home, my brain is just filled with thoughts about work (and a new project I am working on) for me to be able to write anything. I wish I can write lengthy posts again that make sense and come up with topics that are relevant and interesting. I wish that was still the case.
