Summer Outfit (4): Joyride

Hello everyone, it’s Friday! To make the pre-weekend time more fun, I’d like to post another fashion challenge outfit, which is also the last challenge to complete, finally (whistling, huhu~~). A “going to see your favorite band for the first time outfit” requested by dear reader Jibjab.

I think the challenge is pretty awesome because I will indeed go to one of my fave bands live concert soon, and this will be my first time too! How did you know that, jibjab? Can you also tell me my fortune in 2012 please? lol~~ Ok, stop joking. Since it will be a Roxette show, I wanted to wear something that is casual, cheerful and cool! Just like the songs by the wonderful duo. :-P

BTW, recently I’ve got to know a few lovely gals who adore COS too, so this post is also for you (Titon, Danke nochmal und ein schönes Wochenende)! :-D Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Top, Skirt: COS, sandals: Zara, necklace: Hermès twilly & scarf rings, braclets: Hermès, COS.

Summer Outfit (3): Black & White With…

a hint of color blocking. When I am not in a mood for bright colors, the simple beauty of black & white always pleases me. Hmm….wait a minute, I just realized that I did wear a little bit of bright in this outfit. Can you make a guess? ;-)
Shirt: Maje, skirt: Marios, necklace: DIY, sandals: Isabella Lorusso.

Summer Outfit (2): Touches of Red

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. Today I’d like to post another fashion challenge outfit: “A red one with your RG Birkin.” challenged by dear reader Birkinmary.

Do you wear reds in summer? How do you prefer to match this powerful color? :-)

Top: H&M, skirt: COS, necklace: DIY, flats: Salvatore Ferragamo, bag & scarf: Hermès.

Summer Outfit (1): Understated Leopard

I bought this leopard skirt months ago and finally got to wear it yesterday. If you are fond of animal prints, how do you prefer to wear them? A small splash of leopard here or there or do you also enjoy animal prints as a whole? ;-)
Top: Zara, skirt: D&G, necklace: COS, pumps: Marni.

Spring Outfit (7): Effortless or Not?

“My style icon is anyone who makes a bloody effort.” – Isabella Blow

Do you have a style icon? I don’t have a particular one in mind, but I do like those who make efforts before stepping out of the door, in order to look effortless. Pretty paradox, ah? lol~~ BTW, I’ll be on a business trip next week, so see you in a week. Have a fabulous weekend everyone! :-)

Sweater: Forte_Forte, shirt: COS, shawl: Hermès, skirt: H&M, booties: Céline.

Spring Outfit (6) – Like an American

Happy May First everyone! Reader featherfactor challenged me to create an “All American” outfit with my RG Birkin. I came up with this ensemble because the essence of American style means for me a balance between timeless and modern, something relaxed, easy-to-wear, but in the meantime very urban chic.
The mix of red, blue and white echoes the color of the American flag, it seems to make this outfit more “American”. lol~~ But the suede rope belt and the long necklace are, on the contrary, more me. They bring a bit of personal character to the whole look. ;-P Hope you like it, dear Katherine!

Shirt, belt & necklace: COS, jeans: Levi’s, shoes: Converse, bag: Hermès.

Spring Outfit (5): Pattern Mix

Since we are leaving for Easter holiday tomorrow, I thought I’d do a quick post today. An outfit mixed with at least four patterns as challenged by Julide. :-)

When I read the challenge, a skirt in Miao ethnic print mixed with something in delightful African tribal pattern came into my mind, but unfortunately I couldn’t find the right pieces in my wardrobe, so I ended up with this simple stripes/dots combo (hope you don’t find it too boring, dear Julide). I wore this outfit last Saturday and felt, well, really great. ;-)

Wish you all a wonderful Easter with lots of sweet treats! ;-P

Dress & belt: H&M, top: a no name one I’ve had for ages, shawl: COS, flats: Miu Miu.

Spring Outfit (4): Navy Pants + H Carré

Happy Monday eveyone! Are you ready for the reader’s challenges? The outfit I’m showcasing today is a casual ensemble with a pair of navy pants and an H carré. I love the combination of cozy harem pants and the playful sweater with irregular polka dots. The H carré is perfect for the April weather and adds a bit of chicness to this casual urban look.

So my dear Birkinmary, what do you say? Do I pass the exam? ;-P

Sweater & pants: COS, scarf: Hermès (Fantaisie Pittoresque), shoes: Maison Martin Margiela.

Spring Outfit (3): Green Breeze

So my lovelies, I’ve chosen these two challenges for the first round of our game:

    1. a casual one with a pair of navy pants and an H carré
    2. one ensemble with 4 or more patterns

      Photos will be taken & posted soon. For today, let me share an old picture as an appetiser. Enjoy your weekend and see you next week! :-D

      Fashion Challenges

      Happy Monday everyone! I hope your weekend was wonderful! We spent an utterly busy but fun two days, filled with a Sunday brunch with friends, swimming under the sun, a poker evening with great music… and I also did a little shopping on Saturday (got myself some nice summer clothes).

      As I checked my blog this morning, I saw this comment from a dear reader:

      “Your pictures are exquisite and inspiring! Would you accept fashion challenges from your followers? I’ve got two outfits in my wish list to propose:

      1. A red one with your RG Birkin.
      2. A casual one with a pair of navy pants and a H carré.”

      I never did fashion challenges before but it sounds like a fun game, so why not? If you are interested, please feel free to participate. Simple write down you wish outfit like the lovely Birkinmary did. I cannot guarantee everything but I’ll try my best to fulfill every requirement and of course, not letting you gals down. lol~~

      For the first round, I would like to select two of your wish outfits at the end of the week. The pictures will be posted next week. So… let the game begin! :-P
