metallic paws: my actual V-day outfit

Friday, February 17, 2012

my actual V-day outfit

Just thought I'd post what I actually wore for Valentine's Day! I didn't do a photoshoot with it but I took some snaps at home. It was a hot, sunny and bright day so I had in mind a fun floral outfit, blooming in pastel colours (hence the lilac nails).

However, after getting myself into the clothes, it looked nowhere near as good as I had envisioned (don't you hate it when that happens?) so I went with the classic black + white combination. Thank goodness, any extra stress over colours clashing or whatnot and I would've ended up leaving the house very late.

Jumpsuit: Bardot
Blazer with crochet back: Sweetacacia (from a place called Internet Clothing in Market City, Sydney)
Necklace: Etsy.com
Metallic belt: Taobao.com






One of my absolute favourite, favourite looks is a thin, almost sheer blazer (or open blouse!) with a dress or shorts peeking out from underneath! I'm not entirely sure why, but imo it's the epitome of understated sexy.


Also, thankyou so much Wannabe Magazine for featuring me here. I was so honoured to have my pics fitted in alongside the likes of Mayo Wu, Natalie Liao and Connie Cao! They're very well-established, inspirational fashion bloggers and I feel almost out-of-place being on the same page as them haha. Thankyou again for the feature!

  1. Yay you're wearing the blazer! It looks amazing! You're right, very sexy, I'm sure your boyfriend loved it haha. It's good to see someone who didn't go for the traditional pink/red outfit for Valentine's Day!

  5. Wow another feature? Congratz! :D
    I like your outfit. I so know what you mean about imagining pairing and outfit, but have it turn out not quite like the way you imagined. My room's always in a mess cos I throw clothes everywhere when I'm in a hurry and have to change outfit plans last minute haha

  13. Congrats on being featured! I'm so proud of you =)

    I can totally understand what you are saying on the vision-in-the-head-doesn't-match-what's-in-the-mirror moment! It annoys me lots especially when you have the mood to take pictures already and lost it later when you can't seem to find the right item to match! =D But I must say you did great! And that gold belt looks good on you =)

  14. Wow, simple but really effective outfit you have there, and I totally agree that the blazer + short shorts/short dress combo is haaawt. Whilst it can sometimes look a bit middle school with some styles, I think the style of your clothing makes you look mature! :)

    Lovely nails too, and congrats on being featured! :D

  19. congrats on being featured! Love your jumpsuit and gold belt. Super sexy 70's disco look. I've been looking for a metal belt forever. Hope I get lucky soon. Oh, I was going to tell you that I got a HoH inspired necklace from that eBay website you linked to a while back. It came a few days ago and I love it. :) Good ol' knockoffs. LOL. <3

  57. Hello Izzy, sorry for the late reply! I've been busy shifting into my apartment and getting a car. Perhaps we could arrange a date through email? :D

    I've yet to try Max Brenner but my aunt took me to Lindt cafe late last week. The waffles, cakes and hot chocolate were sooo good! The hot chocolate you saw in my post was from Rossini. Max Brenner is next up on my list!

    Last but not least, congrats on the feature! You totally deserve it! ;)
