gleeter!

serious question time, but what girl doesn't love gleeter?! glitter = cheery buckets of glee. and throw in some rhinestones/gems and i am in bedazzled heaven. for serious. i love that all these designer shoe makers are practically Lisa Franking out their sky-high pumps. L.O.V.E.! following are some of my favorite pairs, within reasonable price:

but since i'm on a serious budget here, i've decided to DIY my very own pair of pumps. thanks to the help of MoreThanJazzz and long scrolls through Google images/tutorials, i have successfully created new shoe eye candy! will post the results some time over the weekend, but for now i can say they look a bit similar to these beauts (but in a darker gold with more blush tones):

fresh cuts

new haircut post, bringing the side swept bangs back:


pre-haircut. longest locks i've probably ever had. in for a much needed taming trim!
(p.s. - enjoy my dbag kissyface, hahah)



post-haircut from Acote salon on Newbury street.

i had to play with my bangs for a while for them to sit the way i wanted (these pics aren't the best, but i tried!). other than that, i got my layers back and my hair dresser did a fabulous job. highly recommend.

Since this was a really simple outfit day, I decided to focus on my main accessory: my Chanel specs!



I've had these prescription glasses for maybe 2 years now (but been blind since nearly forever), and these big black frames have yet to go out of style. For me, it's the combo of geek chic mixed with a wider spectrum of which to see from - I have smaller/narrower purple Lacoste prescription glasses, but they just don't cover as much ground due to the smaller lenses.

What's your favorite accessory? Do you tend to wear bigger glasses/sunglasses or stick with the small and simple?

outfit post #2:


pink geometric print ruffle dress & gold/pearl necklace - F21
grey cardigan - H&M
Alfani tan boots - Macy's


and a closeup of my grey faux crocodile print tote - ASOS

i can't wait to wear more COLOR once the spring is actually here. not that there's a rule that doesn't allow colors in the winter, but i justcan't help leaning more towards blacks and greys while battling through these cold days.

any items stored up in your closets that you can't wait to break out once sunny spring hits?!

a sea of outfit posts with a side of cheese, coming right up!

man, getting back into the groove of blogging can be really tough, but thankfully i have my faithful bouzins to keep me in check (aka, keep bugging me about posting). thus, following the lead of MoreThanJazzz on her outfit posts, i have scheduled a new outfit post for every other day so that this blog space doesn't suffer from the once-a-month post syndrome. i also like the idea of documenting my outfits, so that one day i can look back and either say "ohay qt!" or "what was i thinking?!"

and so begins, outfit post #1:


leopard print top & khaki skirt - F21
black "knotted rope" belt & oversized "diamond rock" necklace - old H&M
Gucci handbag & Burberry watch

how cheesy are these poses, huh? hahah, i embarrass myself sometimes...err...too much. but that leopard top is one of my new favorites, since it's been a staple print for me all my life and the comfort of it is like a dream. any staple items in your closets?

Fond of My Four Eyes

So after many attempts to steal my look (RE: MoreThanJazzz trying to steal my exact same Chanel 3135 glasses frames), I have decided to dedicate a post to all the *newest* frames I would like to soon add to my growing glasses collection/failing eyesight:

Turquesa Rounc Vintage Eyeglasses (via MODvintageshop on Etsy)
Shell 658 Vintage Eyeglasses (via MODvintageshop on Etsy)
Sting Tortoise Vintage Eyeglasses (via MODvintageshop on Etsy)
Russel Party Habana Vintage Eyeglasses (via MODvintageshop on Etsy)

Actually, MODvintageshop's entire collection of frames is incredibly appealing (not to mention incredibly affordable). I love the Red Transparent Round ones & the 50s Transparent Frames with pink edges, but the above 4 colors just seem like they'd work better with my face/complexion.

If you remember my sunglasses collection post from way back when (peep it here), then you know I have a more than slight obsession with glasses/sunglasses of all types. I'm hoping to do an updated post now that it's been over a year and the collection has most definitely grown (though I did get rid of a few really old pairs!). More on that to come, so stay tuned! :P

VDay weekend & my new love packages!

So I totes owe MoreThanJazzz & BayVag about a million overdue blog posts, but hey better late than never! So, I'm going to skip all the verbal descriptions and just skip to all the visuals:

Getting ready for VDay weekend sushi dinner & scorpion bowls in my new ASOS mono sleeved dress, which I love and is super comfy. Finding the right accessories proved to be difficult as always, so this was version #1:


and this would be version #2, aka the final version since it was waaay too cold out to go out without material covering my legs:

haha Mike's fake smile, such a boy. I'd definitely prefer the first version of how I wore this dress, but winter somehow just somehow forces you to wear black when covering up. I cannot wait for spring/summer! But I do love my final choice of accessories: a short embellished necklace, a couple of rhinestone bracelets, and of course my leopard print nails!

And last, but certainly not least, is my bag wear out that night. Aka my new favorite accessories probably of all time:
ImageShack, share photos, pictures, free image hosting, free video hosting, image hosting, video hosting, photo image hosting site, video hosting site
My new vintage Gucci handbag and the key items I keep inside, my Gucci sunnies and Louis Vuitton wallet. loveloveloves.

How were your weekends, loves?! Hope it was filled with fun & fabulosity, as always :)
