What I Wore: Trip To The Thrift Store

After about two weeks away from my wardrobe, I'm back again with a rejuvenated will to 
dress up!
For starters, I picked my favourite burgundy pieces for a day out with my parents:

T-shirt: Gap
Skirt: Lowry's Farm
Boots: Rodarte x Opening Ceremony
Bag: Vintage, from mom
Rings: Maison Martin Margiela

We visited our favourite thrift store that's about half an hour away from our home, and it is the best place to spend at least half the day in.
My mom goes there for the bags, but I'm ALL about the clothes!

I love these Rodarte for Opening Ceremony boots I have on; they are at least six years old, but looks timeless and amazing.
The velvet fabric reminds me of an opulent carpet, but who cares?!

For those who has been following my Etsy shop, you might have seen the belt buckle before because I sold one just like it.
I regretted it almost instantly, so I found another one and kept it for myself because it makes my outfits cooler and so much more badass!

Vintage belt buckle: Christopher Ross

So what is everyone up to this weekend?
Does it include a trip to a thrift store or flea market?

I hope everybody will have a fabulous weekend!

Drooling Over: Rodarte x Opening Ceremony Velvet Cape

I love clothes that are borderline costume-y, so that includes anything extravagant and over-the-top!
So this cape jacket is right up my alley:

Velvet, fringe, baroque design; what is there that I don't like?!
So much going on, but it's the perfect punchline to a simple casual outfit, especially one that involves a white t-shirt and jeans!

I love the red and yellow version too, but I already have a pair of boots from the same collection in that colour-way and wearing it together would have been overkill.
But it would definitely make a good conversation-starter, no?

What I Wore: 1st Wedding Anniversary

I've been with my husband since I was 18 going on 19, but we only made it official last year.
It took an 8-year engagement to finally make it happen, but we did it!

Naturally, any woman will be very excited to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, but ours is just another excuse for us to dress up and eat good food HAHA!

We made quick stops at some local museums, before heading to my favourite middle-eastern restaurant, Al Tanoor, for a scrumptious dinner!

So here's what I wore to mark this momentous occasion:

Top: Stella McCartney
Jeans: Forever 21
Flats: See by Chloé
Bag: Chloé

I just had to wear that top; it's so cheery and I love good vibes on my special day.
Also, I had those jeans since I was in university, and I'm so happy that I can still fit in it!

Here's me with our dinner; of course I was obviously happy!
Everything was delicious, by the way, MAJOR YUMS.

And a close-up on my jewelry of the day:

Vintage ring (top): Christian Dior
Quad rings (bottom): Maison Martin Margiela

I haven't gotten a chance to properly-photograph the vintage ring, so I'll update this post with a clearer photo of it one day!

To the love of my life, thank you for being the wonderful man that you are.
One year down, an eternity to go...

Trend To Try: Mustard Yellow

Yellow is definitely the happiest colour associated to lots of positivity, but it isn't often seen in outfits because people tend to shy away from brights or risk looking like Illumination Entertainment's Minions!

One of the easiest ways to wear yellow is to pick a subtler shade, and mustard yellow seems to be a recurring favourite during the fall season.
However, I've been noticing a whole lot of it for summer, and I cannot be happier!

So, who else is ready to inject some happiness into their outfits?!

Wardrobe Refresh: The Ugly Shoes

So I have been reading a handful of articles about the not-yet-dead ugly sandals that have taken the fashion world by storm since a few years ago, and I'm proud to admit that I am officially a convert!
I used to hate Birkenstocks, partly because I cannot stand the dreadful darkened-imprints on the cork base that is supposed to be functional and comfortable for our feet, but I found a solution to this while remaining totally chic...


Granted, it is nothing revolutionary, but still!
I didn't get mine from Birkenstocks, since I decided to go with a pair of Givenchy leopard ones with leather soles.

So here are some ways I will style my ugly shoe!

Embroidery, Leopard, and Ruffles

Shirt: Chloé
Shorts: H&M
Flats: Givenchy
Clutch: Alexander McQueen
Vintage ear wraps: Boucher

Leopard, Ruffles, and Sequins

Playsuit: From Bangkok
Cardigan: Rodarte x Opening Ceremony
Flats: Givenchy
Clutch: Topshop
Vintage necklace: Christian Dior

Military, Leopard, and Ruffles

Shirt: Chloé
Jeans: H&M
Jacket: Marc Jacobs
Flats: Givenchy
Clutch: Topshop

I chose a leopard-print pair because it is such a classic and works surprisingly-well as a neutral to compliment various outfits, as evidenced above.
Plus, the calf hair on the uppers adds an interesting texture to your look!
