.: red, white and dots :.

Life is still very hectic lately. Apparently not all women are multitaskers. Guess which gal cannot do all things at once :) Thankfully this skirt is a multitasker. I can wear it with so many things. Right now I'm loving button-down shirts, but to keep it less corporate I added fun accessories like this belt.

.: bow overloads :.

I like things with bows; big ones and small ones, on shoes and on blouses... There's something so quintessentially elegant about bows. Valentino does the most amazing bows, but kate spade's bows are much simpler for everyday usage. I fell in love with this skirt a while ago but it was way out of my budget, so when she has her 75% off sample sale I immediately snabbed this skirt and it has been hanging in my closet ever since. I finally got the chance to wear it last week. The thing I love about kate spade's clothes is they fit perfectly all the time and it makes you feel like such a girly girl. And I intended to wear this shoes on our wedding but it's just not a very practical shoes for such a long event :)

.: maximized :

The tricky part of wearing maxi skirt for a petite-12 like me is the risk of looking frumpy because of all the volume. But I really, really want a maxi skirt; so this one actually works because the lining is a few inches shorter than the bottom lining. In a hindsight I probably should wear a more fitted top but I was really in the mood to wear this beauty because it's a gift from my dearest husband :)

.: slouchy glam :.

Gosh has it been that long since my last post? Life's been hectic, and I can't really complain :)
I went to an interview last week and while it was for a creative job, I dressed nicer than usual. It was in Venice area where everyone looks good without trying. I was so overdressed because everyone was dressed in what I call 'slouchy glam'. You know, messy bun, slouchy-oversized-off-the-shoulder-silky-blouses, skinny pants and envelope clutches. So I went back to my tiny suburbia and try the style :)
