Growing up, pink was my favorite color until prepubescent years hit and sports became my obsession. Out went pink and in came blue as my favorite color along with being tomboyish and obsessed with sportswear. My favorite Spice Girl? Yeap, Sporty Spice. I went through a phase where I refused to wear skirts nor dresses (tomboy, you know?) and it wasn’t until I started college that I would gradually wear skirts again.
While some things have changed (my Summer wardrobe is mostly skirts and dresses now), some have not. I still refrain from wearing or owning anything pink! I can count on one hand the amount of garments I own in pink and have fingers to spare. Well, today’s outfit is one of the few pinkish garment that I have. To me, it’s quintessential summer colors, all bright and cheery!
It’s been a while since I posted an outfit, so here’s one I wore to work earlier this week and linking up with Mix & Match Fashion’s What I Wore to Work.
I spotted Peony Lim in a pretty Anna Sui dress that she wore for fashion week two years ago while perusing her archive when I discovered her blog. I couldn’t forget the gorgeous print on the dress and recently I decided to try and hunt down the dress. Well, as luck would have it, I found a similar dress that Anna Sui created for Anthropologie and someone was clearing their closet on eBay. Even though it was a size or two bigger, I nabbed the dress as I can always have it altered when I go back to KL.
So, here’s the outfit layered under a sleeveless shirt and blouse in an attempt to conceal that the dress is a tad big on me. 😉
I have to say that this scarf found me as I was merely accompanying a colleague to check out Banana Republic during lunch break. As my colleague went up to the cashier to ring up her items, a sales associate asked me if I’d like to buy the scarf. I had no intentions of making any purchase but I guess she saw me wearing my Marc Jacobs scarf and tried her luck.First thing I did was check the price tag, of course! It was $6.97 and the fabric felt very soft and comfy, so the rest is history. It’s a great neutral color and perfect for transition weather and I have been wearing it quite a fair bit since purchase.
