Fauxionable Outfit – Black with a Punch of Color

I had a meeting with a client today, so I decided to wear this shirt dress that was light for the Summer weather (although not so much for the color) and was polished for a semi-formal work outfit.

  • Dress: Esprit circa 2009
  • Sash: Old Navy circa 2005
  • Bag: Second Time Around find in Boston circa 2006
  • Flats: Saks Off 5th circa 2009
  • Necklace: Mum’s hand-me-down vintage faux pearls
  • Watch: Michael Kors MK5384

Pretty Aprons and Outfit for the Day

Now I may not be a domestic goddess (and I highly doubt I will ever become one!) but seeing these pretty and fun aprons make me want to cook and bake, just like a Stepford wife! Well, you know just like Bree Van de Kamp in Desperate Housewives? Oh, and so 50s too!

Don’t they make you want to cook and bake just so you can wear the apron? Well, of course you can still wear the apron and be a “poser” and not cook and bake but er, you know it would be better if you do! Heh. At less than $30 and some of them even less than $20, you can now cook and bake happily in style in these pretty and fun aprons!

The seller Boojiboo also sells coasters and tea towels made out of similar pretty and fun prints on the fabric. I think these would make nice gifts for housewarming parties, Thanksgiving and of course, Xmas! Happy shopping!

*Kindly take note that I do not benefit from promoting this seller. I just happened to like the pretty things she has in store.*

On a separate note, here’s my outfit for the day:

Top: Ralph Lauren (outlet find!)
Blazer: ZARA
Scarf: Thrifted from London as posted here
Jeans: Miss Selfidge (gift from Miss Faux-Fashionista!)
Shoes: Banana Republic (Ebay find!)
Bracelet: Glass beaded necklace from Uganda as posted here

A Black Box and Outfit for the Day

I went to pick up the little something that I purchased last week during a promotional event from Neiman Marcus and decided to wear one of the sundresses that I have. The main piece for the outfit was the dress and the rest just came along as I dressed up to head out.

Dress: Esprit
Blazer: ZARA
Skinny belt: H&M
Shoes: Banana Republic (Ebay find!)
Bag: Marc Jacobs Little Stam in Milk
Necklace: H&M and white gold necklace with star pendant
Bracelet: Forever 21 (the necklace that broke as mentioned in my previous post)

Curious to know what I picked up from the promotional event at Neiman’s? Its a black box!


That’s all I am posting for now. HAH! Yes, the frugalista in me splurged and indulged myself with a Chanel and I am totally doing this on purpose to keep you in suspense! Teehee.
