Anja Rubik Off Duty

Yes, I’m substituting my lack of outfit pics with another post of others’ outfits! (It was yet another misty foggy morning when I left the house.) I’ve always have a soft spot for Anja Rubik who enjoys pushing the envelope. Her off duty looks here are relatively classic though.

I’m definitely loving her Burberry leather jacket in the second row. It really makes me want to finally get one for my wardrobe!

Which model’s off duty looks do you adore, if any?

Fauxionable Outfit – Classic Black & White

Yes, I’m wearing white pants after Labor Day. That age-old rule does not exist in my style book! Heh. Here’s an outfit to a housewarming party today.

Fauxionable Outfit – The Little White Dress

While most females consider a little black dress aka LBD to be a classic staple in their wardrobe, I consider the little white dress, LWD to be a classic instead. I have my reasons for it; since I am skinny, I shy away from wearing too much black for fear of vanishing into thin air! Thus, I prefer white for the most part and needless to say, I have quite a fair bit of white clothing.

Summer is quickly drawing to an end and here I am trying to maximize my LWD wear by accessorizing it with two different sashes…

Liu Wen Off Duty

It’s been a relatively hot summer and browsing at Liu Wen’s off-duty looks have me looking forward to Fall even more!

I adore her classic style in the pics above. Jeans, ballet flats or boots makes the uniform, something I can totally relate to in the cooler months! And it goes without saying that I am loving her bags – Chanel flap & LV Sofia Coppola – that are classic and understated.

Are you looking forward to Fall yet?

Another Pair of Shoes!

As mentioned here,  G & I went to the outlet mall after the vineyard tour. It was Virginia State Tax Free Weekend and we thought we would go check out some stores. I was only interested in purchasing scarves for Fall but I left empty-handed as I didn’t see anything I particularly had to have and the prices weren’t that enticing to me either.

G is a fan of the Bass Outlet, so we went in to the store. I have never heard of Bass until I saw G’s wardrobe with their clothing and footwear and was unaware that they had women’s wear as well. We wandered to the women’s section after G was done and I found myself looking at a pair of classic cap-toe ballet flats in black on black and a beige on black. They were very reminiscent of Coco Chanel and I asked G to do the math for it while I tried looking for a pair in my size. I found a pair in black to try and they were comfy and fit snugly. I however, liked the pair in beige but the only one in my size was a display and the sales assistant couldn’t find it’s missing half. Oh well.. the universe is telling me to not buy any more shoes, I guess.

Since I couldn’t stop thinking about it, I decided to call the other outlet store in VA the next day and voila, they had in my size and the color I want! I ordered them over the phone and the total came up to $29.93 ($2.95 for shipping). The original retail price was $89.95 and it was on clearance for 70% off.

The shoes arrived yesterday and I love it! While I am rarely a fan of patent leather, these were minimal and it goes well with the beige. The in-sole is well-padded and very comfy. They do however require some breaking in as the rubber on the back hurt the back of my feet after a while. (I have since been stretching them out with a shoe tree and it is much better on my feet now.) For $26.98, these man-made material flats are definitely worth it and stylishly chic in my books!

Are you a fan of cap-toe shoes?
