Camera Hog

It's great that the kids are so willing to have their pictures taken. They always say start them young, right? The problem, however, is getting them to actually NOT have their picture taken...



I've had these boots forever that one sole fell apart after while walking around that day...sigh...

Anyhoo, how was your weekend, everyone?

Hey, you punk!

Image
Punk was one of the biggest stories in fashion in the 1970s. Born out of a relatively short-lived anti-fashion street cult, it ended up representing some of the most pivotal ideas of its time through its notoriety, its similarity to tribal intimidation techniques, and its political stance.

Proportion?

Image
These pics were taken before Christmas, but for some reason, I never got the chance to post them. I like this kind of outfit just because I've always loved the concept of short over long:) I blame all those images from thesartorialist.com!

What do you guys think? Have you done the short-over-long layering?

Danke!

Kung Hei Fat Choi

My husband is of Chinese descent, and thus, the Chinese New Year is a pretty big deal for the family. These were taken on Saturday during the pre-Chinese New Year dinner:)



Wishing everyone an amazing Year of the Dragon!

Fingerless

Image
These are my new fave accessories, as the cold winter weather has come with a vengeance where I am. No more mild temperatures...Bah! Anyhoo, bought these on sale at Urban Outfitters awhile back, and they got buried under the crap in my closet.



I remember as a youngling buying cheap gloves from the dollar store and cutting off the ends...heehee...now, I don't have to do that!

Have a great weekend, guys:)

Rubber

Image
My kids always ask why am I wearing rubber pants when I wear these...I tellz yah...my pants are so misunderstood:P




Happy Thursday, everyone:)

New in...studded

Image
This was the only item I purchased for myself during Boxing Day (see blog here). It wasn't even on sale, but I had to have it, as it was the last one the store had.:P

It's red...it's studded...it's faux leather. What more can a girl ask?

Influence: Gib (John Cusack)

Image
If there is a fashion-related job that I would kill to have, it would probably be costume designer for a film or TV show. I think this job would best combine what I love in the world:fashion, celebrities and research:P. A character (to me) on screen is not only defined by what s/he does, but also by what s/he wears.

On that note, one of the most beloved characters on film whose fashion I truly loved is Gib from the film The Sure Thing. There's nothing better than John Cusack in the 80's, and Gib is (I think) of the best slacker heroes out here. His uniform of a beat-up leather jacket, military pants and Converse sneakers defined his character, and they still look great even now. Kudos to the costume designer Durinda Wood for an awesome job on this.

Some would say that they prefer Daphne Zuniga's look on this film much better. I have to admit that her look is too preppy  for me. My sister ShoeBelle, however, would look great on …

Staple

Image
This is one of the nail polishes I tend to gravitate to. I love how it looks, and I think the colour can go with any outfit. This should be a staple in anyone's polish collection:)


Run, mommy, run!

Image
It was just a day spent dropping off and picking up the kids, and running around doing errands. We're back to mild temperatures again, and thus, just wore this...

As much as I loved the craziness of the holiday season, it's nice to back doing the old mommy routine again:)

What's up with your pants?

Image
People always think I'm wearing pyjamas when I wear these pants, which make me want to wear them even more...bwahaha!


Happy Manic Monday, everyone:)

Obsession #11

Image
I know the holiday season is over, but I just could not get enough of sparkly stuff....hence, the obsession over the sequin pants.

This one by Michael Kors (click here) is sooooo pretty, isn't it? Sigh....

Easy Peasy

Image
If I can get away with wearing the same thing over and over everyday (a la Einstein), this outfit would probably be it.



Everything (from top to bottom)is just so comfy. I can wear this going shopping, to a casual dinner, or even to church.

Do you guys have a certain outfit you want to wear all the time?

New Year Dinner

Image
We had a small and quiet New Year dinner held at my sister-in-law's place. Didn't go out at all on New Year's Eve, as that's never really been my scene (BIG NERD ALERT!:)). And...oh yeah...I have three young kids who are usually asleep by 8pm:)

Anyhoo, here are some pics taken on January 1st. Just wore a simple and relaxed outfit, as I wanted to be able to eat a lot and not suck my tummy in:)






Happy Tuesday, everyone:)
