May I have your attention, please...

As stated in my previous blog post, my computer has been out of commission (rest in peace dear charger). I still don't have a charger, so blog posts may become a bit slow/sporadic. Please bare with me during this time until I can get my hands on one!

So a few things to write about today.
For one, I woke up to an email from Chictopia. Bloomspot is giving one lucky winner $1000 to shop at Sephora! I signed up right away and I encourage you to do the same. You can use this link here.

Secondly, I wanted to thank anyone and everyone who have read my blog. I ask that if you enjoy what I write and want to be supportive, that you follow me on bloglovin'. Links can be found at the top of the page and over on the right hand side of the screen. If you don't have a bloglovin' account, then perhaps follow my blog of Google Friend Connect, which can also be found on the right side of the screen.

 Lately, the weather has been very poor. Lots of sudden storms have made wearing dresses and skirts nearly impossible. There's nothing cute about having them cling to your legs and in a sudden downpour!

The weather has made me look for other inspiration for my daily outfits. Here are a couple of pictures that I've drawn inspiration from:

The one on the left is very girly and very simple. 

The one on the right isn't 'girly' per se, however it has a really classic look to it that never goes out of season or style!

Oh the places you will go...

Lately I've been focusing on clothing. However, today, I want to talk about something else close and dear to my heart...and probably the heart of most females around the world.
Shoes are, in my opinion, really great accessories.
They can make an outfit and they can 'break' an outfit. 

I tend to stick to type of shoe, sadly. Flat and comfortable.
Nothing wrong with this, but with more girly clothing, I want to try something new!
Don't get me wrong, I'll wear heels. When I have to.
I love my black Steve Madden pumps that I wear with anything that require I dress up a bit.
However, I want something new. Something different for this new image of myself. I'm growing and evolving again into a girly me.

They aren't the most out there shoes.
They aren't designer or name brands. However, I think they are cute in their simple designs. Less can be more sometimes!
It's a place for me to start. I'll continue looking and finding clothing, shoes and accessories that speak to me.
This bootie doesn't portray the image of femininity that I'm trying to achieve. 
 However, I just liked it. And there's nothing wrong with that!

On that note, I'm having some computer issues; namely I broke my charger...
I hope to have it taken care of by next week. If I don't do a post tomorrow, you'll know why ^^;

Style love pt. 2

Today I'm going to continue my post from yesterday.
Since I was a bit under the weather, I was unable to do much but today I'm feeling a lot better.
Thank you everyone who sent well wishes my way!

Yesterday I posted a few outfits that I've fallen in love with because of their simple styling and feminine touches.

This first outfit is very simple. I love the the fun of the dotted material of the dress and the way it easily flows. Also it has a empire waist which I find to be flattering for most figures. 

Where I live the days are still quite hot and the evenings can get to be a bit chilly (for me at least). This will last until late October more then likely. 
The pink knit top not only adds a soft feminine touch, but is cool enough to be worn
during the day but adds a bit of extra protection for the chilly night.

Lately I have been spending a lot of time at the beach because my fiancĂ© is stationed out that way. 

To me, outfits like this are perfect for outdoor dates. It has a nice romantic feeling to it while still being casual. 

It is perfect for picnics in the sand or at a park, or even a nice restaurant and a movie.

Being paired with a nice jean jacket, or a white cardigan or white long sleeve tunic type top can make this a great outfit for cool nights by the beach as well!

The third dress is, to me,
a combination of the first and second dress.
It has a bit of everything from them:
-It's simple but fun
-With a nice sweater, can be comfortable on chilly nights
-Great for outdoor dates like festivals and picnics

This last outfit is literally just about  perfect for anything!
A night out on the town with friends, work, dinner parties, a fun day shopping.
There are lots of separates as well, so pieces can be used over and over in hundreds of different combinations depending on what you have in your closet already!

So that pretty much sums up what I wanted to write for yesterday! Thank you for reading this! I hope that as time continues, my posts will become more and more interesting. I noticed that I am focusing a lot on very girly and romantic looks, and I guess you can really see that my heart tends to be all about Asian fashions. The more I think upon it, the more I think this is what I would like to focus on. What are your thoughts on this? Is this something you, the reader would be interested in?

Style love~

Today I'm feeling a bit under the weather so I don't have it in me to write very much.
I apologize. 
Instead I'm just going to post a few pictures of outfits that I've seen and fallen in love with.
To my knowledge everything here can be found over at Yes Style (they are not endorsing this post at all)

Hopefully tomorrow I will feel better and be able to speak on the reasons I like these outfits so much!
 The first picture is from Orange Bear
The rest are from CatWorld.

 Thank you again for your understanding!

I'm in love...

Continuing from yesterdays blog post about my newly found love of frilly and girly clothing, I want to take some time out to write about an extra special love I have found.
Hold on wait a minute. Those things my mom forced me to wear that was some creature combination of a skirt in the front and shorts in the back?
Kinda like a mullet? Or a spork?
I guess I can't say they are a new love but rather a love I never knew I had. 
Skorts were the compromise between my mom I think. I'd have to ask her though to be safe.
She got the super girly me in a skirt and I still got my shorts. 
However that flap was really kinda annoying...
But let's not reminisce in the past, I'm here to talk about my feelings for them now.
I love them now. It's really as simple as that. They have so much going for them!
Their cute designs, the fact that they can be worn at anytime of the year and then how practical they can be. You can run and jump and play (I can still do all these things as a 20 something year old, don't question it) and you won't have to worry about exposing yourself to the world!

Now there are two types. There are your traditional skorts; skirts on top of shorts or shorts with the weird annoying flap. And then there are culottes. Culottes are shorts that are made to look like skirts. At least that's how I tend to think of them.

These first five images are actually culottes.
They look like cute ruffly skirts but are in fact cute ruffly shorts.

I stumbled upon them today as I was going through

I found them from a Japanese brands aptly named Tokyo fashion.

As you can see, they work for all times of the year.

Just add some tights or over the knee socks, boots and a cute sweater and you have a nice girly look for winter. Add a cute casual blouse and you have a nice spring/summer outfit. With a wide brown belt and cute denim jacket, the same bottom can give you a nice fall look!

This one above is actually the only literal or true definition of the word skort I've shown today. It's literally a pair of shorts sewn under the skirt. Just like the other examples shown above, it too is great for all times of the year.

Liz Lisa, the Gyaru Japanese clothing store I mentioned in my post yesterday has some really great skorts that are on sale all year round. 

Now to figure out where to get mine from...xD

Also, I want to let everyone know that I've started a tumbler for my blog. It can be found here. It's the first one I've ever done so please treat me kindly!

Girly girl~

It seems that recently I've been drawn to a type of clothing I never thought I'd like; frilly.
Or girly. However you like to describe it.
It's funny, when i think upon my child hood, the type of clothing my mom always dressed me in were skirts and dresses. So much floral. And pink. Too much pink (I was a red and blue lover all the way).
I hated it.
Kids would always ask me why was I so dressed up, when I wore my green dress with the flower print that swirled out when I twirled. It embarrassed me to have my matching big green chiffon bow that my mom ALWAYS knew when I removed it (one of her amazing super powers no doubt). I could never get home fast enough to throw on my cotton short set which to me was super comfy. Who cared if it was cute or not. 
I grew up thinking this too. 

Now, many years later, I find myself attracted to these type of girly clothing! Amazing how much we grow and change over the years, right? I couldn't imagine living without my cute and girly skirts, tops and dresses. 

Lately I've been looking for more feminine clothing to add to my wardrobe and I wanted to share some pieces on my blog.

 So I'm really into Liz Lisa at the moment which is a Japanese Gyaru brand. The first picture and the last picture are both from Liz Lisa.
The styles are very girly. The first is a high-wasted skirt with removable straps like a jumper. I love the polka dot material and the inner lace detailing. 

The second is a top I'm in love with from a Taiwanese label called CatWorld. I really like these type of tops the most as they can be paired with just about anything. I think tops like this add a very romantic feel and in the summer is nice and airy.

The last one is a Liz Lisa high to low dress with a paisley print. Paisley seems to be making a huge come back this summer for Japanese Gyaru. I've been a fan of high to low dresses ever since I started planning the details for my wedding dress last year. I never imagined they would blow up like this. I'm really happy that they are more available. I like the fact that it has a shirred waist so it can be really accommodating. The ruffle at the top is also super cute and adds a nice feminine touch. 

I'm really glad that my fashion taste is changing. To me it is an indication that I have changed as a person throughout the years. An indication that my tastes have evolved and this makes me a very happy person!

Still not a fashion post..kinda?

Lately I find myself drawn more and more to cute shoes. I've never been a true fan of peep toes but it seems they are/have been quite inescapable for some time now.

Friday, July 20, 2012

So, I've decided..

I'm going to continue this thing.
I don't know how far it will go, or how it may change and evolve in the future.
All i know is that I will put myself out there and I ask that you all treat me kindly!
So this is all under construction now. It will be changing alot over the next couple of days/weeks.
Things will be added and removed at random. But yeah, I'll try my best to get this together in a timely manner.
Any suggestions on how to make it easy for you all to read? Or is it easy enough? I'm a visual person so I hope to add more pictures in the future...
Also, I want to start featuring instagramers on here a week at a time. I'll add how to do that over on the right side of the screen. What else would you like me to add?
I'm not really into twitter, I tried that out and got bored with it after a while so yeah...same with Facebook.
I was thinking about adding a Lookbook, also my WeHeartIt. But that will come later down the road I think.
But yeah, any suggestions to make this any better at all will be greatly appreciated!

Testing Testing...

Can any one hear me?
Thinking of starting my very own blog based around my love and passion for fashion. I want to document my trials and struggles finding myself through this amazing world.
Here, should I decided to continue this, I'll be writing about different styles that catch my interest. I'll be showing pictures of me trying out these different styles and some looks I'll fail at miserably; while others will suit me perfectly.
I'll put myself 'out there' as I delve deeper into the world of becoming more feminine. I'll post outfits, make-up, nails, hair, jewelry, shoes, and even DIY projects.
I'll even post how things are coming along with my future wedding planning.
But..that's only if I decided to continue this.
