I finally found a new blogshop to fangirl over with my mum: Dressabelle! It's so rare finding one that both of us like in terms of pricing, design and quality, though I have to say my mum has much better taste than me, even when it comes to what looks good on me (not her) (no surprises). So when I found Dressabelle, the two of us spent some time trawling through collections; I'm so glad she liked it enough to approve the two buys below :)
Denim Shorts in Dark (S)
I never wear denim shorts and I never buy denim shorts: two rules that were overturned by this lovely pair! I will never look as good in them as the model does, of course, but since it's rare enough to find one in my measurements, I'm happy.
|Paired with TVD Lace Basic tee and the belt that came with the shorts!|
Lace Overlay Skater Dress in Mint (S)
I've tried and failed to get quite a few items in mint on other blogshops recently. My favourite colour remains spearmint (which is more green than this colour) but mint is still a pretty rejuvenating perk-up for my closet, which of late has stagnated into navy blues and whites (particularly whites). Not to mention, perfect fit at bust/waist/length, skater dress cut and lace are all deal-breakers! :)
Both items reviewed here.
On the personal life front, college and scholarship applications have me worried at least once a day, but I am trying to keep my eyes on prelims at the same time, since ultimately if I lose sight of the exams for the applications it'll be like putting the cart before the horse. It's quite a stressful period but I am praying for the strength to do the right thing at the right time, and to pace myself so I don't burn out. Only you know yourself best, remember that.
If anyone's looking for cool new music, listen to the Like Crazy soundtrack! The film itself is refreshingly honest: a bare-faced counterpart to (500) Days of Summer, and possibly even more heartbreaking.
