Will you be shopping the Zara Sumer sale? Which shoes are your favourite?




Sunset Flowers

Fact: I rarely ever put on earrings. However, when I saw these peacock feather earrings I instantly wanted them! I love the color and pattern on them, and best of all, they're so lightweight which makes them comfortable. This gorgeous necklace I wore here, is currently out of stock, but it will be restocked soon.
I also found this gorgeous vintage clutch on Light In The Box and I fell in love with it. The delicate beading, the unique shape, and the fact that it is spacious was what caught my eye. It also come with two chains: a long one (which I'm wearing) and a shorter one. It's available in about 3 other colors, so i think I might add one more to my clutch collection. ;)

Funny Stuff: Would you believe it if I told you I'm wearing 2 dresses and 1 blouse in this outfit? Remember in the last post we talked about recycling and a lot of you agreed that there's nothing wrong with it. Well, I did some more recycling in this outfit. Instead of buying new pieces often, try mixing and matching dresses as tops or skirts with other items in your closet; this will save you loads of money and get you thinking creatively.

What do you think about wearing dresses as tops/skirts? Do you do this often? I know I do! If you'd like to see more posts like this on making your closet versatile, let me know in the comments.




So... Where Have You Been

Hi Keekars... nah I'm just playing with you. So the blog was lil bit dehydrated this week eh. I couldn't put up any post cos I've been up to a couple of things:

- I Had an exam to prepare for 
- I was working on the set of a music video. 

Have you heard about The Walkervilles? They are an awesome Motown/Rock influenced band from right here in Windsor. We were shooting their debut video for their song 'please baby stay'. Guys, I absolutely love this song! There's something so fun about it that just makes me want to dance. I wouldn't mind going to a little bar somewhere downtown to dance to songs like this all night long. Here's a sneak peek of what the set looked like.

Meet The Bandmates

- I'm dedicating this song to all my recent new followers. Thank you so much! 
- Listen to the song on YouTube here
- For the ultimate listening experience, plug in your headphones.
- Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed the song as much as I did. Don't forget to share it. Check The Walkervilles on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Stay blessed lovely people!




Is 'Recycling' A Fashion Faux Pas?

Top: Suzy Shier | Pants: H&M | Necklace: LightInTheBox | Wristwatch: Avon | Shoes: JustFab
Total: $63.95

I have a lot of things to tell you in this post and I don't even know where to begin! I'll begin at the reason for this post's title. I recently read an E! News article where they criticized a celebrity (Jennifer Aniston) for wearing the same dress twice (recycling). Since when has not throwing your clothes away after one wear become a fashion faux pas? Do you agree?  For this outfit, I stayed around the same color pallete as the previous one, but I made it more dressy by adding this pair of sandals, a statement necklace and these gorgeous textured pants + red lips.

I always dress up according to my mood... no matter what. If I don't, I will not feel comfortable in what I'm wearing. Do you do that too? I had planned out a different outfit initially, but I ended up changing into this just because I felt like wearing pants and nothing was going to change that. 

Finally, I need some help! I NEED to find a brand that makes pants/jeans that fit perfectly (especially for pear-body shapes). If you have any suggestions, please them in the comment section!




Art In The Park (Windsor) : What I Wore + Fab Jewelry

A couple of days ago, My friend Huang and I volunteered at an event called 'Art In The Park' close to my church. We had so much fun walking around and looking at all the beautiful, handmade, unique and novel artwork. There was all sorts: gorgeous jewelry, paintings, handmade clothing, original leather goods...

I managed to get some pictures of some of the fab pieces from different vendors: I will link each collection to it's vendor together. Scroll past the OOTD pics to get to all the gorgeousness!
