Back to work but keeping the festivities alive through my cute skirt- a gift from the bestfriend! I’m channeling simple/casual office-wear with minimal accessories. I wouldn’t want to be too blingy.
Also, I’m turning 21 in a week. Somehow though, I still feel like i’m 16, carefree and too happy to be put down by the real world. I’m guessing that’s a good thing, and hoping it won’t change. (It must suck to be jaded about life at such a young age.) Ooh I can’t wait to see what life has in store for me this year!

It’s a common chinese tradition to dress yourself in Red/Bright colors for special occasions. But, since I’ve sent half of my wardrobe off to Manila and I went on a two year “Red-ban” whilst mourning (another tradition), I regrettably end up with a lack of bright colors in my closet. Hence, I was forced to come up with an alternative holiday outfit. I present to you the the next best thing. Turning your casual basics into holiday-ready outfits. Another fun tradition we follow involves wearing polka-dots, a sign of success (or money) during New Year’s Day. It’s supposed to symbolize good fortune (circles=coins) for the rest of the year. Unfortunately, for the not-so-confident, polka dots might seem a bit too daring. I thought it would be a fun alternative is to deck yourself in round accessories instead. My version involves a turquoise beaded necklace, a bunch of vintage gold plated bracelets in varying bead sizes and my favorite and totally overused DIY pearl shorts. There’s nothing like an understated outfit for that effortless casual look, especially when there’s so much more to it than everyone thinks!
My dad pops open a bottle of Grand Vintage Champagne, and it’s official. The New Year has begun.
2010 was a really blessed year for me. There were so much opportunities, coupled with love and support that came my way. Who would have thought that my little love affair with fashion could actually gain attention and inspire others all over the world. I’m so lucky to have met many amazing people through this blog. To all my readers, fellow bloggers and fashion fanatics, thank you for sharing your passions with me. To my family and friends, your support has been tremendous. I am truly grateful for each and everyone in my life right now. Let’s greet the new year with open arms- cheers to another year of love and friendship! Happy New Year to everyone!
PLUS- I bring you some good food to feast with your champagne!
Above, the hearty, but not so vegetarian options of T-bone and Rib Eye Steak. Below, a healthy and equally hearty serving of Chilean Sea Bass and Norwegian Salmon.
…and of course, some Pizza!
