Outfit Twenty Three













 ♥ Modcloth Petite Pachyderm Clip In Pink . Mehoi Sleep Walker Earrings . Modcloth Cropping Up Cardigan . Tofu Heart Dress . Louis Vuitton Cherry Pochette . Tiffany & Co. 1837 Lock Ring . Lady Bug Ring . ASOS Heart Tights . Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 Heels ♥



I first wore this dress to the dinner of a work event I was overseeing. Needless to say I was made to feel very conscious of the placement of the hearts on this dress. 

I am not sure when the way I perceived items started differing greatly from societal norms, but this dress brought it to the forefront for me. 

I still love this dress very much though and refuse to see it in any other kind of light but my own. I find it girly and happy, and the hearts exuberant and like little shouts of joy. :)

This is actually my first attempt at painting my nails, and when I whatsapp-ed the photos to a couple of good friends, one actually burst out laughing and told me that it's obvious that when I was a child, I never managed to color within the lines haha. What an apt analogy!   

I bought a half size too small for my Louboutins, but I still wear them as much as I can with a permanent strained expression that I reckon isn't too fetching. Well, as Carrie said, 'These shoes pinch my feet, but I love them". Truer words have never been said. ♥ 

As it was a glorious Saturday, I decided to bring my twin Hedgehogs out for a spot of sunlight. They had so much fun peeking out of my hair whenever the wind blew...

  6. This is all amazingly great, but I cannot get over how cute the earing is :)
    and yeah I have bad skin too, well it used to be a lot worse, I had laser treatment, if you click on the category you can see my before and after!
    But I never really used concealer for some reason :S

  16. A) I LOVE that episode of SATC. "I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes."
    B) I am exploding in happiness over the details of this outfit-the hearts, the polka dot cardi, the ladybug ring and most of all the elephant hair clip! I have collected elephants since I was a kid. I'm told they are good luck! It's also good luck when a ladybug lands on you, so you're pretty much covered for the day! ;-)

  17. those hedgehog earrings are so darling! <3

    ReplyDelete
  18. Your writing brims with sincerity and cheer, I just totally adore it :) Loving this outfit as well! I do think that dress is incredibly lovely. People will always have something to say about what others look like or what they wear, but like you said we must give more importance to what WE think of ourselves and our clothes. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the childlike accessories on such a grown-up outfit. :) The shirt with the hearts on the boobs is really funny, and looks cute with the jacket overtop. Love everything! (especially the LV clutch)

    ReplyDelete
  20. you are adorable.
    i love this outfit(:

  21. That's a bit harsh being told you can't colour in the lines!!

    And getting comments on your dress. I love your style - its very feminine and you pull off the high level of cute very well, without it being to saccharine.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Nice outfit! I adore your shoes, are amazing. Also the black skirt is great, well done!

  23. Addie, I was just about to say the same thing about the placement of those hearts on the dress! But I love them, and I would wear them proudly! :) hahaha.

    I love your elephant hairpin to bits. I will confess that I went back to dark hair because I love how I can wear brightly-colored clips without looking garish.

    And Louboutins scare me. Don't get me wrong, I think they look astonishing, but I just... can't. i'm too uncoordinated. haha. I'll leave the wearing of those to you. :)

    very nice shoes, I'm sorry in half size small but suffering for fashoin sounds romantic (now I totally have the impression I've already said this phrase before)

  72. haha that sometimes happens to me when i colour my nails too. some nail polish brushes just make colouring of nails a more difficult task isnt it... what colour's ur nail polish & from whr?

    cute little elephant hair clip & earrings! i wish im brave enough to rush to the jewellers' and get my ears pierced! i think i'd go crazy with earring shopping>< at the moment i purchase vintage clip-ons from ebay, since clip-ons are such a rarity now.

    i got my blog background from Tumblr Blog Themes (http://www.wewantlayouts.com/). clicked on the thumbnail, then clicked on preview theme, then cropped a section out using program, saved it, & used it^^ there's heaps of patterned backgrounds there, so happy browsing!

To be honest the look and outfit are perfect but I don't like the toes, I've never liked them and I never will but that is just a personal opinion on those kind of shoes! Hope you're having a great day

    also its a shame about the shoes but hey its al in the name of fashion and looking good right? i have a pair of heels half a size too big and they cause me a whole lot of pain too. half of the time because i always trip and fall!

    anyway, keep up the great work- you are on of the most stylish women i've ever seen and your posts are always so humorous :)
