Fauxionable Outift – Weekend Lunch Date

For over two months, G was commuting on a weekly basis to Netherlands for work that we would only see each other on the weekends. While I tend to throw a pair of pants and a top when we go out during the weekends, I decided to dress up a bit for one of our weekend lunch dates at that time.

I have had this top since forever (14 years?) that I can’t seem to part with.  (What’s not to love about Peter Pan collars?!) I’m also glad that I decided to alter the original cocktail dress into this skirt since I have been able to wear it more often than I ever wore the dress (see here).

Fauxionable Outfit – Vintage Scarves Top

A month flew by since my last post and I have been plagued by issues with computers! My personal laptop won’t allow me to log in although I typed in the correct password, so I was using G’s spare laptop until it decided to go crazy on me. G has since fixed my personal laptop thankfully, but most of my pictures were on his laptop. It’s been a fun ordeal but almost everything is sorted now although I no longer have access to Photoshop just as I was getting back into the groove. Harumph! Well, G reckons a new laptop is in the horizon.

On a happier note, I have been practicing my sewing and I have since upcycled a dress into a peplum top, sewed a top out of vintage scarves, and hemmed G’s jeans into shorts. The first two were done with help from my instructors in class, since I’m still a newbie. I have also made some cushion covers as my first sewing project. I recently wore the top I made from vintage scarves out to lunch with G,which is the highlight of this outfit.

Now that my computer troubles are (almost) resolved, I’m hoping to resume editing pictures from my trip to Barcelona and Menorca. Stay tuned!

Fauxionable Outfit – On Repeat

Today’s outfit is a repeat that was posted here. Although I wore the same outfit, I opted for different accessories that were a little more understated and versatile since I was traveling. I wore this on my second day in Barcelona and the blazer kept me warm in the cooler morning and evenings. Excuse my silly grins as I was just happy that I was finally in Spain after longing to visit for eons (okay, make that 8 years)!

Fauxionable Outfit – Check It!

It’s been a while since I last posted an outfit, so here’s one! I first saw these check pants on Tuula and I love them. (Then again, I’m almost always drawn to all things monochrome. Heh.) Fact that it was on sale within my price range? SOLD! It reminded me of the Tibi check pants except the colors were inverted, white on black and with a budget-friendly price. Since I wasn’t sure on the sizes, I ordered two pairs, a size 2 and a size 4 and the smaller size was a much better fit. I find the fit to be much better than my Banana Repubiic Hampton Cropped Pants in size 0 as seen here.

Fauxionable Outfit – ZARA Inspired Wrap Skort

In one of my previous Wishing Wednesday post, I wrote about what I liked about the ZARA wrap mini skort that’s a popular item among bloggers. Yet, I expressed why it wasn’t for me as the length wasn’t work appropriate. Well, fast forward some weeks down the line, my lovely sister had one made for me by a tailor that she frequents when she’s in Hong Kong. Yes, made exactly color-blocked and at the length I preferred! Thank you, kajia! The finished product lacks pockets but I’ve received plenty of compliments on it each time I’ve worn it! 😀

I wore it this past weekend, keeping to a monochrome palette with a pop of color from my bag to hang out with a friend who also kindly took my outfit pics. Thanks, E! Fauxionable Outfit - ZARA inspired Wrap Skort Black White Monochrome Red Louis Vuitton Sofia Coppola PM LV SC
