I finally got to see the cherry blossoms at high park with my good friend Jordan (http://cestnaturel.wordpress.com/)! šŸ™‚

Does this also count as an OOTD since I went there a few days ago? My dress is from Costa Blanca!

If you’d like to see more pics of the cherry blossom photo’s I took, click here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.377799839003272.1073741832.340278639422059&type=3

We FINALLY have some sunshine coming back to us, and all I can think is, “MAXI SKIRTS AND MAXI DRESSES!”

All I’ve been thinking about is a few essential maxi skirts and dresses I can wear this summer! My reasons?

  1. Maxi = better than pants!
  2. It’s less of a hassle and worry if it’s already full length vs. a medium-length skirt
  3. Maxi is a total new level of comfort that still lets you look put together
  4. It has a very feminine look while still being comfy
  5. A maxi dress is a piece that can be utilized in a million ways to make it look like a skirt, top or one piece

What are your thoughts on maxi pieces? (Short or tall, it’s worth a try!)

How gorgeous is black and sheer together?

There’s something both classic and timeless about the look of this combination because it can look dressed up or dressed down.

So far, I’ve got a brown maxi skirt (super comfy from sirens for ONLY $10!), a navy blue maxi dress (a more safe colour) with straps and a mint green (I figured colour would be good to try for the summer) from Forever 21.

Sorry about lack of posts! Until I actually wear decent outfits I’ll be posting my past week instagram outfit pictures (Instagram: briichan)! Bear with me!

I recently went to a wedding and picked up a red dress from Le Chateau, which is hard for me to do because I DIDN’T BUY THE BLACK ONE, OMG.

I realized my school outfit the next day really tied in with the same colours as my outfit for the wedding!~IMG_1918
This red top looks absolutely gorgeous. What I wouldn’t give to go into Urban Behavior and buy if right off the mannequin!IMG_1535

I’m absolutely in LOVE with the kpop song “I Don’t Need A Man” by Miss A! The looks are as fabulous as the song itself!
Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkSOOiMDGiY

I was really inspired by some of their outfits and wanted to share it with you guys!

The music group, Miss A.

It’s the simplest things that can make any outfit work.

  • Oversized red & black plaid shirt with a black top and shorts (my personal fav)
  • The boyfriend blazer with chunky gold statement jewelry
  • Black suspenders with a crisp white top for that slight boyish-look

The video really gives the girls a great look for each singer that shows off their independenceĀ and attitude to look out for themselves, which I found quite cool and inspiring. Any look is better with a great hairstyle and an attitude to go with it!

Old Navy launched a special section a while back where some of the clothing was marked with tags that said “Studio Spotlight”. This meant that those pieces were from the line of clothes that the designers created! Below is what the tag looks like:

This piece that I purchased was the Old Navy Women’s one-button blazer. Here’s a link to what the whole blazer looks like:

The creator for this line including the blazer is Shanti Markstrom.

I love buying something that has more meaning than just being some article of clothing! The Studio Spotlight tag could be opened and had a paper in it with information about the creation of the blazer! It was the most adorable thing I had ever seen!

Also, I thought I would include the video about Shanti’s line that she created for you guys, it’s really cool:

I took some pictures of what the paper looked like, HAVE A LOOK!CSC_0965

I’m definitely hoping to stumble across some more Studio Spotlight pieces more often!~

In honor of Gossip Girl having aired it’s season finale, why not a post with their help as my muse?

The Cast of GG on the cover of the New York Magazine, April 2008, named as “The Best Show Ever!”

Now I haven’t watched every season, but all the buzz that goes on about it is enough to learn what the deal of it is, from the drama to the fashion. I still had enough common sense to set aside some time to sit down and watch the last episode for the hell of it.

Sometime’s it takes a show of a lifetime to see changes take place in a character, in terms of their personality, fashion and relationships with friends and family.

From the snobby uniforms in their high school years to scandalous dressy ways of the Upper East side style, it’s easy to see who’s changed in what ways. It made me think about my own transitions with my group of friends and in terms of myself.

Sometime’s appearance really is more important than we think it is. Sometime’s its not. What do you think?

I could be over-analyzing and using a really weird example for something like this, however, sometime’s it’s the hype of the media that makes us just stop and have a moment of self-realization~

Ps. I always did love seeing the way people like The Queen B dressed! It wasn’t something I could have happen in real life, but damn it was always worth watching~

So, as Gossip Girl said in the episode of “Return of the Ring“, “Good morning, Upper East Siders. How do you look today? You know image is everything. But under those perfect clothes and perfect smiles, everyone has their not-so-perfect secrets.”
