Fauxionable Outfit – Peter Pilotto for Target

I finally received my Peter Pilotto for Target wrap skirt when G picked it up from his cousin on his recent business trip to the US. I couldn’t wait to wear it and paired it with tights this past weekend. As I couldn’t try the item since it was sold out on Net-a-Porter, I was worried about poor quality and fit. (Read my review here.) Neither were of concern once I held the item in my hand, as the skirt is fairly well-made and lined. It also fit me well and the length was just nice. (Length is one of my main concern aside from quality!) I look forward to wearing it with many more outfits to come! 🙂

Fauxionable Outfit – What I Wore to Work: Tulips

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. 😉

Fauxionable Outfit – Teal with Yellow

Now that it’s slightly warmer, it’s time to bust out my dresses again. I wore my teal maxi dress (worn here) for casual Friday and also to a housewarming party this past weekend albeit slight tweaks on each day. Paired the outfit with my Keds for Kate Spade on Friday and didn’t wear a belt to the housewarming party since I knew I’d be binging and stuffing myself silly. 😉

By far, I tend to pair teal either in the same color palette with greens or in this outfit teal with yellow. Does anyone have any suggestion on any other color combination? I tried pairing it with my navy blazer but it didn’t look any good, just dreary hence the gray blazer. I’d love to try some other color combo in the near future aside from neutrals and would appreciate any suggestions. 🙂

Fauxionable Outfit – Mixing Prints

I love this H&M blouse that I bought back in 2006. It originally came with basic black buttons but I switched them out for pearl buttons for a more polished look. I usually wear it on its own with a camisole layered underneath as it’s a sheer fabric but since I resolved to maximize my wardrobe, I decided to layer this underneath the ZARA draped bird print dress that I recently scored on sale for today’s outfit. A subtle mixing of prints, as I’m still experimenting. Baby steps!

Do you alter garments for a different look?

Fauxionable Outfit – Midi Skirt

I wore this outfit sometime back when it was not as cold (completely subjective!) and recently recycled this outfit with warmer wool tights. I tend to stick to dress pants for work during the colder temperatures, only wearing skirts and dresses for certain occasions, weather-permitting. I decided to give the midi skirt a try this winter in an effort to maximize my wardrobe and minimize cost per wear (although this pretty skirt was a gift).

Yes, it’s another blue & red combo outfit. I just tend to stick to the tried and true, and this includes color palettes. Having a blog is challenging me to be more creative in pairing different textures and prints, but I’m just not quite there yet, color palette-wise!

It has also been really windy here in DC and my animated gif is proof! 😉 The wind is supposedly going to make its presence felt throughout this week and it’s forecasted to snow (up to 5-6 inches) tomorrow. Yes, snow in March. Can you tell how excited I am? (if only!) Spring, please hurry up and be here already!
