It's finally Sunday and that means I get to share with you all a brand new post! Today, I would like to introduce my biker chic side to you and my love for leather jackets, which I feel is the main ingredient to creating a biker look. Now I'm not saying you need to go all black, head-to-toe, to create this look. But a statement leather jacket and a pair of distressed denim or leather leggings/pants can be fitted and matched together quite easily. For the shoes, I am proud to share with you that you can get these Giueseppe Zanotti lookalikes for about $30 (contact me for details) and not have to worry about saving up so much in the long run. You can pull off this look too, but remember, it's all in the attitude. Feel confident and carry yourself well :) Have a blessed Sunday and a productive week ahead, readers! Feel free to comment on this post or any other posts on my blog for improvements, questions, comments, or concerns. Thank you for the continuous support as always!

There's nothing more classic, sexy, and versatile than a little black dress. Whether you wear it for a girls' night out or a nice date with your man, the LBD is a go-to outfit that can easily be styled for almost any occasion. This is the main reason why a LBD is one of my favorite looks. As you can see, I chose to go for nude pumps to keep the colors neutralized for my choice of shoes. Also, I kept the accessories minimal to represent a kind of sophisticated look and finally decided on a red lipstick to add a little color to the entire look. This dress is a purchase that I'm very proud of as I managed to get it under $15 (oh, the beauty of knowing where to shop in Bangkok!) I believe that a little black dress is essential to a complete wardrobe by any woman and it should be kept simple and elegant. So ladies, if you are reading this and do not currently own a LBD in your closet, I highly suggest you work towards investing in one because this dress can be dressed up or down and is a great look to go anytime of the year. As the famous saying goes, "you can never go wrong with black!" So what's your LBD style? 

This week has been very tiring because of all the things I had to get done on my errands list. Nonetheless, I am glad that it's Sunday and I was able to go worship my Lord in church. For today's look, I am proud to show you my most recent purchase from a local night market for under $10 (great deal, huh?) paired with a simple black top I also bought just last night. I love skirts in general because they're very comfortable to wear as opposed to jeans or other pants, and help us ladies to maintain a stylish, yet classy look. I believe that you can style a lace skirt (like mine and other types) with pretty much any top - a buttoned down blouse, denim, silk tops, etc. Lace helps you to look professional and fashionable and that's why it is my pick for today's post. A lot of people also think that lace can only be worn at night since it's considered to be a fancy material, but I think just the opposite. It's a light piece of cloth and can be easily worn during the day as well, in any color you wish to rock it in. To beat the sun, I played around this shoot with my sunglasses and to complete the look, I chose to go for simple black stilettos and a black slingback purse. I hope you enjoy this look and if you have any comments on how to improve it further, please do feel free to express yourself. Thank you for the continuous support for my blog and have a great new week, readers!

It's the middle of the week and time is flying! In today's post, I'd like to talk about this ensemble that I have put together from my inspiration. From my experience, I have seen that when the word "smart casual" comes up in dress codes for events, a lot of women think about wearing only dresses or skirts. I'm here to tell you that a smart casual look can also be achieved with pants or jeans. So how did I come up with look? One of my dreams has always been to finish school fast and start working. I always tell myself that I can't wait to work because I can already see myself styling with the different office wears that are out there. This smart and classy look was one of the ideas that came to my mind. White will always be one of my essential colors that gives a boost to any outfit as it is a soft color. To be a little daring, I paired this sleeveless blazer with my mustard yellow tight fit jeans. Wearing a full blazer in this summer is a no-no, so this sleeveless piece really helps to do the trick. For the shoes, I chose to go with medium high black stilettos to keep the look classy, and that's why I recommend this look can also be worn for a job interview. Coming to the choice of color for my jeans, I would say that women should experiment with colored jeans and not be afraid to take a risk every now and then. Of course, you can't just buy any type of colored denim. I suggest that these kind of jeans should ALWAYS be bought in the perfect fit. They say that women with a heavier bottom half should opt for darker shades as opposed to lighter shades and vice versa for women whose bottom half is lighter than their upper half. Yellow is that popular color that few want to wear near their face. Therefore, wearing this color in a pair of jeans is a great compromise. With this post, I'd like to personally encourage you to try out different colors instead of sticking to the usual denim blue or black. Also, be open minded and remember that a smart casual look is not always about high waisted skirts and dresses. Have a great rest of the week, readers! And may God favor your in all your endeavors!

Today is Sunday and also my favorite day of the week because I got to praise my Creator in His house. Church was great as usual and we learned about pursuing the heart of God. Aside from that, let me tell you a little about this crazy humidity we have been facing in Bangkok. The weather here has been hotter than usual lately at this time of the year, so wearing darker shades is out of the question these days. For this outfit, I opted for this white jumpsuit and added a pop of maroon to bring life to the outfit. I have been told many times that white looks good on my skin tone so I decided why not rock this piece? I also decided to match the shoes with my maroon watch that I recently bought for a great deal and the silver necklace which was gifted to me by a friend. As a full-time student, it's not always convenient for me to shop in big malls every week so you might be glad to know that this entire outfit from head to toe has been assembled in under $40. What do you guys think? Feel free to comment below for any suggestions to improve the look or any ideas you might have.
