metallic paws: a touch of magic

a touch of magic

Leopard print and sequins don't seem very much like a daytime combo, but it's the little details that make all the difference. A swishing, flared skirt cut not too far above the knees will transform a dramatic sequinned piece into cute and playful. A pop (or two pops!) of leopard print in the form of two fluffy balls on either side of your head, form the sweetest icing on the cake. But a demure, sheer black blouse with gold buttons down the front, will prevent the outfit veering off into tooth-achingly saccharine territory.

However of course once night-time falls, the outfit is easily just as fun as it was during the day. The fun of dancing and twirling around in a swishy skirt is somehow increased tenfold, when you've got a sea of shimmering sequins catching the light with every movement.

  7. Gorgeous. ^^ You're really a fan of sequins aren't you? You pull them off really well! I'm too scared to wear anything that daring haha. Your ears look really warm too! I had some ear muffs in China, where it was freezing. xD

    My heart sank when I saw your blouse was from gmarket! I find it way too hard to navigate, none the less order off. xD

  57. Omg, that skirt is my dream!! So gorgeous!! And I love the sheer black blouse and cutie ear muffs. And your hair is looking so long and pretty. I wonder if my hair will grow enough to be that long. I swear my hair stops at some point even though I know that's not true. LOL. You look amazing. Oh, I was going to ask you...do you ever do vlogs? I always imagine I can hear your voice with the way you write your posts, but I'm probably not even close to what I imagine your voice to sound like. LOL. <3

  62. The skirt is so sparkly! So many bloggers seem to be embracing the glitters recently hehe
    I like how you kept everything else toned down (except for the leopard print earmuffs) so the skirt stands out.

    ReplyDelete
  63. how lovely!
    the skirt is surely magical and those earmuffs add a whimsical touch to the whole look.
    i tend to look like a square shaped rice cooker if i wear earmuffs, though. (true)
    a little jealous, here. ;p

  65. I really like the photos where you are standing in front of the tree and bushes. Your outfit and especially your gold skirt just blends so well with the light and the color of the leaves. And thank you for replying. I kind of realized that it may have been a weird question lol. A few years ago, my friend pointed out that I need to be careful because she was able to see underneath my skirt. Do you live in a major metropolitan area with subways? I guess it is a little harder living in a vertical city. My mom was also telling me that a lot of pervs have microscopic cameras. Anyway, thanks for your reply =]
