Bringing Balance to the Force

Madewell crop sweater and Star Wars bed sheet skirt

I’m on a roll with fun skirts and it’s been much too long since I’ve worn this Star Wars skirt, made out of the original vintage bed sheets! I made this skirt a few years back and it’s been gathering way too much dust! Although there are quite a few licensed Star Wars fabrics, this is still by far my favorite one since it looks more like a painting and a little less “cartoony”. However, being a very eye-catching print, I still wanted to keep this outfit balanced and not wear anything too busy on top. Paired with a cute crop sweater or even a basic white tee, it’s all about bringing balance to the force. :D

Braver Days

Top Shop POW Skirt with SneakersDespite the outfits that I post on this blog, I don’t always like to wear super eye-catching things on a regular basis. Take for example this fabulous “Kaboom” skirt from Top Shop. Since I’ve had it, I’ve probably only worn it 3-4 times (sadly decreasing the “value per wear”, but that’s another story). I also have to admit that I have not even mustered up the courage to wear this to work yet! Maybe one day, but for now, this will have to be one of those inspirational pieces that I’m saving for a braver day.

Not Superstitious

Jean Michel Basquiat Batman Tank with Blazer

I’m generally not a superstitious person, but sometimes my culture can get the best of me. Yesterday was Chinese New Year and as traditions go, whatever you do on the first day of the new year is supposed to determine the rest of your year, which is usually why some people will take the day off or maybe just taking it easy that day. Although I don’t really believe in this superstition, it still crosses my mind throughout the day – what I do, what I wear, what I eat, how much I work, etc. And with the new year officially starting, I decided to try to look “professional” and less casual at work today. I know this isn’t going to last long, but at least it’s a good way to start!

Roses are Red

Star Wars Crop top with Gap Floral Skrit

Valentine’s Day may have just passed, but I sense with all the extra Valentine’s candy that’s been showing up at work, love might still be in the air? Even though I purchased this skirt back in December, it was practically screaming to be worn around Valentine’s Day with all the red and pink floral. Paired with another “love” of mine, it’s the perfect romance of Star Wars and fashion!

Not So Plane

Equipment Aerial Plane Print Blouse and Wool Pencil Skirt

Today’s shirt is especially fitting not only because I’m a big fan of cute prints, but also because by the time you read this post, I will probably be on a plane heading to Hawaii! It’s been too long since I took a tropical vacation and I can’t wait to lie on the beach with a drink in one hand and a good book in the other. I’ve already got a 5 page list of places to eat so if you want to follow my food adventures, be sure to follow me on Instagram! Aloha!

The Skirt is Greener…

Green Midi Skirt and polka dot topIt’s easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to others and that’s definitely one thing I’ve always struggled with. Sometimes doing so is motivating, but at the same time, it can also be discouraging as it might just end up making you feel like you will never be as successful/rich/pretty/etc. as others. Because of this realization, I’m constantly trying to make sure I focus on doing what I like and what I’m passionate about, rather than doing things only because other people expect you to or because you think, “Maybe if I do this, I will be more popular!”. One thing I’ve tried to focus on this week is  Continue reading

Cameo Appearance

Peter Pan Dress and Leia Necklace

Usually when I put together an outfit, jewelry is the thing I put on once I figure out what I’m wearing. But today, it was the complete opposite as I searched for something to wear with this amazing Princess Leia necklace. As I tried to look for something a little more “proper”, I ended up going with this peter pan collared dress to complete the look. I’m definitely a big fan of peter pan collars – and mixed with some vintage inspired jewelry, it’s a nice balance between a little Wednesday Addams youthfulness and old-era fashion.
