It wasn’t like I searched for a backdrop that matches my outfit, it was the ubiquitous violet flowers that reminded me of this cardigan that’s been neglected for ages.

Urban Outfitters skirt
Topshop denim jacket
Giuseppe Zanotti lace-up booties, found these quite similar
Lace, daisy patterns, cropped, white, four spring keywords in one, what’s not to like about this top?! Check back on my blog some time later I guarantee you’ll see it again.
Pictures taken by mom back in March (I know I really suck at posting in time…) Speaking of mom, my gift for Mother’s Day was a re-organized wardrobe. Basically I did what I imagined a wardrobe stylist does and put together 20 some spring outfits for her including ideas about how to transit from day to night. She liked it very much and I can tell she wasn’t faking it.

Loving this funny black bear rapper so much that I pretty much wore it all week, with black maxi skirt/pink denim jeans/white flare skirt/destroyed cut-offs etc.This outfit is obviously more on the put-together side. I usually only take pictures of my outfit when it’s more chic than casual simply bcoz casual ones seemed to be less photogenic.
PS: got this sweatshirt from a tiny boutique that offers tons of cute custom American Apparel tops on Venice beach boardwalk last year. They didn’t allow me to take pictures there so now I totally don’t remember the name of the store. They have an online store too, don’t have that either ><. (will update this once I have it!)
I’ve been fighting all my life against my fear of camera. Got angry whenever my parents tried to take a picture of me as a kid. In most of my childhood pictures I was either frowning or trying to kill the person holding the camera. In one particular picture, I was pulling my mum’s hair after she successfully took one. Evil kid.
It was not until 2005 when Facebook came out that I officially decided I wanted to conquer the fear. To this day I still feel kinda awkward standing in front of a camera for these outfit photos. So please bear with me if I look stiff (or mean/sad/angry). Will get better to prove I am not a sad person.
Back to the outfit. A little bit of feminine and a little bit of “I-don’t-really-care” combined here. I love mixing different textures. And I love splits (I bet you can tell from my last post and some others). No help for that. I was among those gals who cut their school uniform skirts open (and had them shortened of course!) in high school. Oh, the good old days…
Have a love-hate relationship with this maxi skirt, the material is so stretchy that the slit gets huge and it weighs down when you walk. A lot of times, we are willing to bear the pain for the sake of pretty or cool. I am sure you’ve seen Nicole Richie holding her baby in her arm while wearing a leather jacket with studs all over the collar, that kid understands. Considering the number of times this skirt was stepped on in one single day (10 times by myself and 10-ish by others), I am hoping I could wear it maybe two more times before it is worn out.
BTW, check out my other post here that talks about how to turn unwanted stretchy material into something useful
Fashion is too bossy. It is telling us how we should carry our handbags now. (huh?) After seeing bunch of models and celebs like Victoria Beckham demonstrating how to carry large handbags as if they were clutches, I decided to give this under-arm bag carrying trend a shot. It was impractical, but somehow it felt good.
