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.

Wishing Wednesday – ASOS Wiggle Dress in Border Wallpaper

ASOS Wiggle Dress in Border WallpaperASOS Wiggle Dress in Border Wallpaper $71.27

I haven’t been posting much of late, especially with my Wishing Wednesday series as I haven’t had much desire to shop. Well, ZARA is having their semi-annual sale and I didn’t buy a single item! That should tell you how bad it is as I almost never resist ZARA on sale. Yet, surprisingly here I am holding up my self-restraint with all the crazy sales going on. I guess having to spend for my wedding has turned me off from wanting to shop and add to that an impending move, which means wanting to par down belongings instead of adding more. I digress however, as I have been thinking about this ASOS Wiggle Dress in Border Wallpaper, patiently awaiting for it to go on sale.

While I am not generally a big fan of prints, let alone clashing prints, there is something about this dress that draws my attention. The complimentary colors of the clashing prints makes the dress less revolting, if I dare say so. Whatever it is, it has captured my attention and the fact that it has pockets? I’m sold! Besides, I don’t have any dresses in that style, a boat neck dress with sleeves and pencil skirt silhouette. The longer hemline is also a plus in my books as I prefer my clothes to be work appropriate since I spend a third of my weekdays at work.

Well, since I won a $50 American Express gift card from work last week, I’ve been pondering on what to spend it on. Since I haven’t been wanting much, I even thought about just being practical and using it for groceries! (sounds so crazy, right? ;)) Fret not, for I finally decided to pull the trigger today since ASOS is having a 20% off full items sale in conjunction with July 4th (Use HAPPYFOURTH for the discount). Now, to wait for the pretty dress to arrive. I promise to do a review when it arrives!

Fauxionable Outfit – Pearl Accessories

Instead of accessorizing this green dress with my usual brown or gold accessories (last seen here), I decided to dress up with pearl accessories instead. I have to share though that despite my hopes of coming across as classy with my outfit, I most certainly wasn’t as I realized half-way through lunch that I had grease stains all over the top left side of my dress! Yeap, grease stains were partying on my dress. I had to apologize to my dress since she’d been sitting in the closet this whole time since late Summer/early Fall only to be brought out on a mighty warm Spring day and be splattered with grease stains!
