white blazer & peach body con dress h&m, grey heels aldo, vintage necklace fairfax flea market

I've been meaning to post this yesterday but decided to spend my evening watching the latest gossip girl on youtube. Who watches that show anyways? It's my guilty pleasure. I may be a little old to watch high school drama on the upper east side, but I am so caught up with the Blair/Chuck relationship. I cried when he gave her the prom of her dreams. Haha, I'm not even kidding. They need to get together already!

Anyways...lately I've been inspired by light, nude, and peachy colors. I need more light colored heels to match my nudey inspiration. These are my only light pair and it really stands out against a sea of black. Honestly, I was questioning about that body con dress from H&M, I always felt very self "conscious" about those types of dresses. I'm afraid of it giving too much curves and attract a lot of unwanted attention, but then I thought..I get a lot of attention for the way I dress anyways, so why not bring it home and experiment! So this is the first part of experimenting with this dress. There were other colors on the rack, black and hot pink but I felt this one suits me better. Pairing it with a white blazer certainly kept it classy yet sexy. I can wear this anywhere!

I also had a lovely weekend giving back to the community. I donated 8 bags worth of clothes to the nearby Goodwill. I hope these stored away clothes will have a better home than the trashbags I placed them in for months. It's hard to let go, even when I took them all out to see which one to keep and which one to donate. I tried on each one and asked my boyfriend for his opinion, and he certainly was no help! He had nothing but good things to say, "You should keep it, looks good on you." Well, of course it does..thats why I bought them in the first place honey! haha. After awhile I stopped trying them on and started being realistic. I had them in the bags for so long for a reason. I'm never going to wear them again, so I stuffed them all back in the bag and didn't look back. Then, off I went and browsed around the racks.

I found a pretty cream blazer that fanned out on the bottom. The missing buttons didn't stop me from purchasing, it only inspired me to find better buttons to sew on. I pictured it with my aa disco pants and thought how perfect it would look. Next I went and bought couple of mens t-shirts and did a little tie dye action, and they came out great! I plan on cropping them and wear them with white mesh top (will be making from scratch) underneath..a bit funky but I'm in the mood for funky. Last stop was to h&m and bought couple of pretty light and airy pieces. I especially love that grey nylon bubble skirt. It poofs and feels nice.

I like ur white blazer, very sleek n chic! I agreed with u, giving away's one of the best way of recycling, i had donated a few bagful of old clothings n toys to a local church recently. Btw, i m so looking forward to receive my disco pants too! :)

Love this look; it's so fresh, clean, and on-trend for spring. I'm on the hunt for a pair of nude/beige heels myself.

this is one of my favorite outfits of you. i just read a review of the 5d mark ii and they said it was the best bang for your buck compared to the $8k nikon and $6k sony. also, the ability to record hd video gives me reason to continue saving for it.

Nora said... @ 5/18/2009 3:23 PM
