Silver collar with peplum top

Pretty peplum top and skirt are back in style, like a flashback to the 80s'. They're popping up everywhere on the runway from Badgley Mischka to Jason Wu. Designers love them and fashionistas love them even more! The peplums emphasize the waist, creating a flattering hourglass shape for women. Peplum can be dress down yet be stylish, they can also be dressed formal and sophisticated. Peplum is voluminous enough, so I really suggest to pair it with sleek and streamlined pieces.
The next thing I want to mention about is this DIY silver sequin collar inspired by Marni for H&M collar. I fall in love with it from the first sign on the online lookbook but either they're so limited or everyone loves them because they were all gone from the very beginning of the sale. I searched for it for quite a while and fail :( Therefore I decided to do it myself. I have a couple great ladies sent me the outline of the collar and the work began. It took me hours to make one collar and I have made five collars! Call me crazy!! You'll slowly see more different colors of collar on my posts.

Hot pants, the daring trend

It's been a while since my last post. My laptop was dead and after a few days of repair and struggle, it finally came alive. I still try to take my daily outfit that I want to share with you but without the computer, I could not post. But they are all sitting in my camera and I promise I will post as much as I can.
I bought this disco hot-pant from my previous trip to American Apparel and it quickly became my favorite short. Hot pants are one of the most popular with designers in Spring/summer 2012. This daring trend came in a variety of style, color and fabric. You can spot these leggy looks everywhere on the runway from high to low-waist, wide to very tight fitting.This is definitely an of-the-moment trend for fashion thrill-seekers. Because this leggy look is showing so much of your leg, cover up your top. Showing too much skin with this hot pants will easily look slutty. I highly recommend a button-up shirt. The loose and sophisticated top gives this pant an appropriate look.
GOOD NEWS! From now on I will try to show you where I bought my items. If the specific items are not available anymore or if it's something I can't show you online, I will try my best to find a similar piece. Please feel free to ask me if you have any question, I'm more than happy to help :)
Last but not least, please join me here through Google Friend (on the right). I truly appreciate if you do :)
