Eye of a Tiger

Last week was not very eventful, although I did managed to snag few things from the mall (I was just looking around....) . The huge sale at Dillard's was very enticing, which of course, someone like me could never resist. I purchased a T-shirt for such a bargain ( $7 to be exact) and instantly fell in love. :)
The very next day I took the opportunity to test drive my newfound love (Oh! how very dramatic!) when I went out to my friend's place. The pleather sleeves give this simple top a certain kind of edginess, and the Tiger on it resembles the Kenzo tiger (which has been such a big trend since last winter, but this however is such a cheap alternative). I paired it with my ever so coveted AA Disco pants and my old loafers (it looks quite beaten up because of the amount of use I have put it through, but honestly I like that way it is now, gives it some character). 
I haven't accessorized too much, just my regular MK watch and my gold rings. Although, went with a darker shade for my lips this time and the wayfarer to protect my eyes. The handbag is also a recent purchase (maybe a month or so). As you may have already have guessed, this bag is such a good knockoff of the Mulberry bag; I purchased this from eBay and it was very (very) inexpensive (all links down below) so I thought I might as well get it!! I honestly did not expect much from this bag; given the price, I was sure it would look nothing like the picture or/and the quality would be horrendous! To my surprise, I quite like it and the quality is not bad either (It may wear off pretty soon though… I hope not).
See you soon :)

Austin time (2)

The Next Day at Austin,
      We woke up late the next day, grabbed some breakfast and decided to go to the Botanical Garden, Austin. Since it was early spring, there were few flowers in full bloom. Nevertheless, we carried on and walked around the garden. The Japanese garden was my favorite part because of the beautiful green bamboo trees (which compensated for the absence of flowers)! 
       The outfit here (as you may have already noticed, is recycled from previous look), I held on to the white blazer and my sneakers. The leather skirt is very versatile (can be dressed up or down), the silver zippers on sides streamlines the body and makes yr torso look longer (shhh!!). The crop top has a boxy silhouette, which I love!

          Spring is finally here!!! Well, at least the much-awaited Spring Break is here. :)

Some of my friends and I headed to Austin last weekend for some spring-break/birthday-celebration mash up (since you know.... when you are too busy to do anything, try killing two birds with one stone!). Anyways, we planned a two-day trip to Austin, hoping to catch the tail end of the South-by-South West Festival (SXSW). Austin is around four-hour drive from Dallas, so after we reached our hotel at Austin, we quickly freshened up and changed to go Kayaking. The weather was so wonderful and we had such a lovely time (Details below). By one hour, we all were exhausted and famished. 

          We drove to Oasis, Austin (30 mins drive) to grab some meal before heading out to the festival. The sunset was amazing and the colors were magnificent; the way each sunray hit the lake just before the water swallowed it. It reminded me of what exactly Peeta was referring to, when he explained Katniss his favorite color (the Hunger Games series, if you know what I mean..Cheers!).

Sweater Weather

              Wintertime is the quintessential time for wearing slouchy sweaters, and what better way to step up the game but by wearing it in white. The white brightens up the whole look yet keeping the look very casual. This pair of jeans is a hand me down from my cousin, although it was a size or two bigger than me. Since the jeans were so worn-in and comfortable it was too good of an opportunity to pass up.  I have been wearing these jeans as a 'boyfriend' jeans; I also roll it up at the bottom, making the jeans look more fitted. Lastly, in order to make this look more feminine; I decided to paired it up with these heels (which honestly goes along with everything I wear!). Since I was going out, and it had started to get dark, I decided to throw on a coat, just in case it gets chilly. :)
           Weather is slowly getting warmer now, I am so excited for spring time. Whether you are spending time with family, going out with your friends, or spending a quality ME time; I hope everyone has a great spring break. :)

Show Some Skin


         Last week was so beautiful (it was sunny and warm), if you don't count the last day of the week (when we had freezing icy rain!). Dallas has been suffering bi-polar weather, the day I shot these pictures, the temperature was in 80s and the very next day it was in 20s! Thankfully spring is just around the corner.
        The main focus here is the dress, a little black dress with a twist. The silhouette of the dress is very simple but the cut out gives the illusion that I am wearing two different pieces (a crop top and a skirt). The dress shows just some amount of skin, perfect for dressing it up and down (like so...). Versatility is the key here, there are more ways to wear this dress.

Stay warm
