I've been gone wayyyy tooo long and I'm catching up on all your posts!
I hope you're all having an amazing December like I did. I celebrated Christmas with my family which meant lots of food, drinks and merrymaking! I hope I don't put on as much weight as I usually do during December and January (I eat a lot because all my favorite stuff are served) because I haven't had the time to put on the clothes I shopped all throughout December and it would be very vexing if they don't fit me anymore! D:
You guys, I am just so happy this month. Considering the trials that we've faced during 2009, its feels so good to be able to celebrate a happy Christmas with my family and we're hoping to face the New Year's with a lot of hope.
I managed to make myself very happy this month! It's the time of gift giving so I made it so by buying myself lots of cute clothes that I like! My wardrobe needs a facelift, since it's full of t-shirts and pants. Yeah, I'm the shirt-and-jeans kind of girl! But I think its time to add a little more oomph to my stuff. I need to wear nicer clothes because I'm totally into clothes and accessories now. If you must know, I love ROCOCO style because it's entirely beautiful and classical and rich. I like anything vintagey or whimsical.
A very cute top with this little lace neckline and lace ribbon in the middle (adorable!) The fabric is very cool and light which I love. I bought it from Knit & Co.
Gauzy beaded top from Mags. It looks orange in the picture, but it's actually kind of a yellow peach color! I love the beading and all the details along the chest area. Sometimes I think that this is great for special ocassions or semi-formal events.
Sweater-blouse from Kashieca, which is one of the more simple and no-frills top I bought. I like it because I can see myself wearing almost everyday. I love that the sleeves are 3/4ths and that on the neckline, there's a ribbon you can pull to tighten and loosen it however you may choose.
Lots of CARDIGANS! I love love love love love cardigans! I want to have a cardigan in every single color. It doesn't give me much warmth during cold days, but wearing cardigans are great for windy days and when going to the mall. I am quite sensitive to cold air but I don't like wearing jackets or huge sweaters because it'd feel too hot.
Tops from Mint. I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee these. They look really romantic. Very, very light, fits me very well, and though it looks a little dressy overall, I can use this when I go out with friends or with Prof (my term for my boyfriend lol!)
A cardigan-top from Mango. My top pick among everything! I love this because it's a cardigan and a top in one. There's this little string around the torso area that you can close or open up and a few buttons down the neckline. The sleeves are a teeny bit puffed and its soooo cute. Very light and cool fabric.
A racerback from Mango. I don't get it why they are called racerbacks. I bought this because... I dunno. It looks really laid-back and simple, but the fit is just awesome. I tried it on in the store and it makes me look like I have good curves LOL!
Well that's all I got for clothes! I did shop for shoes and accessories too but they're just too few to mention. I just went all out for clothes because I am sick of wearing t-shirts and feeling under-dressed every time.
If you happen to pass by some embroidered tops, lacey little blouses and cute cardigans, do drop by a little love note on my chatbox. I hope you all have a nice holiday. There's NEW YEAR'S CELEBRATION to look forward to!
