Wishing Wednesday… Anthropologie Pintucked Ponte Dress

Anthropologie Pintucked Ponte Dress RedAnthropologie Pintucked Ponte Dress in Red $148

Lunar New Year is right around the corner (February 10 this year) and this Anthropologie Pintucked Pointe Dress would make a great dress for the first day of Lunar New Year! Red is considered an auspicious color in the Chinese custom and according to mythology, it wards of evil spirits. 😉 Well, regardless, I love red as an accent color and this  dress would fit perfectly in my wardrobe. Besides, I think it’s a versatile dress for work, dates, or shopping. (It would make a great dress for Valentine’s Day for those of you who celebrate that holiday.)

I’ve tried the dress in the store and I like the quality of the fabric. It’s slightly thicker and I believe it will retain its shape over time. There’s also a blue version which I adore but it’s an online exclusive. Love the bright cobalt blue!

Fauxionable Outfit – Black & Blue Pleats

Another favorite of mine is pleats, and here is an outfit with pleats on both the top and the bottom.

I love pleated skirts and can’t quite get enough of them. I’m glad that they are back in trend as that enables me to stock up! Heh. That aside, this $5 shirt from H&M Men is awesome. It’s cotton but not wrinkly and I even have one in white! What can I say, I love black and white. And oh, let’s not forget the classic tuxedo pleats, too.

Do you like pleats?

Fauxionable Outfit – Monday Blues

An outfit befitting the day, Monday Blues!

Monday Blues - Ruffled Dress

  • Dress: Cultivation from Isetan 2011
  • Shoes: ZARA F/W 2011
  • Bag: Chanel Anniversary Reissue 226 in Gray 2005
  • Bracelet: H&M 2011

I have to say when I bought the ZARA ballet flats, I bought it because I liked the color. But lo and behold, it’s almost a 100% match the tone of blue with this Cultivation dress! I guess it’s just meant to be!
