FASHION FOCUS:
Trousers are undeniably a classic piece. When you think of trousers doesn't it remind you Katherine Hepburn? What I love about trousers is that you can definitely dress it up or down. It can also be worn at multiple occasions, which is absolutely wonderful considering the fact that you can have an array of looks with just one focus piece. In this case, my focus piece are my grey slim trousers. They are super comfortable at the same time very chic. I mean, whoever says that trousers are only for men, or that trousers isn't feminine enough for women to rock, must be out of their minds.

Anyways, these grey slim trousers that I got from a site called My Secret Closet also comes with these skinny waist belts which goes directly on the double belt loops that are built with the trousers. I absolutely adore these trousers as they look feminine at the same time very casual & chic.

FASHION HIGHLIGHT:
In this very plain outfit of mine, I definitely had to have a statement piece. Something bold, would make an amazing statement piece for a plain, boring outfit. For my outfit that consists of solid colors, I picked out my Anya Necklace. It actually comes as a set, along with a pair of matching earrings. Anyways, I just love love this necklace. It is very beautiful & bold, just the way I like it.

This necklace almost looks like a "charmed" necklace that has this clustered look to it, with flowers, gems & tassels, which are huge this season.  It's also in this rustic pewter color that basically matches with anything and everything.

Anyways, you can find this piece as well as many other amazing accessories at Shop The Look. Everything on their site is just gorgeous & really affordable too. That's why I love going on their site, window shopping from time to time haha or should I say, screen shopping?

I don't know about you guys, but I absolutely looooove Ross! I find amazing clothes at a great discounted price. :)

I mean, I'm the kinda girl who doesn't care about the brand or how expensive it is, because it doesn't matter if you're wearing even a trash bag, it's how you rock it & how you feel about yourself.

CONFIDENCE IS KEY!

Never say you don't look good in this or that, or even "I could never pull that off" because, if you really want to, you can. Just have the confidence! Don't let the clothes dictate you! Have fun with fashion, don't take it too seriously as it is not only for fashionistas. Fashion is for everyone!

Less than $15 Blog Sale Preview


Hey loves,
I've been meaning to put up this blogsale for the longest time now, but it's been delayed and way overdue. Anyways, the main reason why I wanted to do this sale is because #1, I absolutely need to clean out my stash and find these babies a good home. #2, I actually have been chosen to be one of the MUA for our school's Spring Fashion Show this May. This fashion show basically showcases the fashion design student's line/collection. Our school also invites a few well known people in the fashion industry to witness the show, which makes it a pretty big deal for the design students that will be strutting their collection on the runway. & last reason is because, since I was chosen to be one of the MUA, I need to upgrade my traincase a bit. I am in desperate need for newer/ more supplies (ie. brushes, palettes, etc.) 

Anywho, enough with the blab! So, that's my story hehe! But yeah, hope you guys can support me with this sale and for my reasons. 

Here's a little sneak peek of what my blog sale will consist of.

BTW, THIS BLOG SALE WILL BE $15 & BELOW :)

Hair Extension Talk


Have you ever gone to the salon asking them for a trim, just a few inches off, but the stylist actually cuts more than what you asked for? Or, have you always wanted long hair, but your hair is too stubborn to grow faster than it should? Or, even had long hair withdrawals after chopping a huge chunk of your hair? 

Well,  unfortunately for me, I have experienced all three. 

But, I found a solution haha! Well, at least a faster solution for having longer locks in just no time.

I found this great site called, PRO Extensions and obviously by the looks of the name, you probably have guessed by now that this site is a hair extension site. (if not, then... well, it is :)

Anyways, this site has a huge selection of hair extensions; from 14 inch all the way to their longest, 24 inches. They also carry standard sets as well as the best kind of hair out there, the Remi.

I, personally got the 24" inch Clip On Hair Extensions-Remi in Jet Black and I must say, I am very impressed with the quality of this set of hair as well as the clips that it came with. Each set comes with 12 clip on hair extensions. But the 2 testers doesn't come with clips as they are only "testers" meaning, you use them to test on hair dyeing for example. So technically, you get 10 with clips.

^ The picture above is the 1.5"  (the set comes with 6 of these)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
^ The picture above is the 7" (the set comes with just 1 of these)


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
^ The picture above is whole set, minus the 2 testers

The way it was constructed or made, was very nicely done as well. All the clips are sewn on the wefts very tightly. No loose ends, nothing. Although, I must say, purchasing hair extensions isn't a joke, it's quite an investment. Especially if you want real good quality human hair.

Anyways, PRO Extensions has this permanent promotion for their sets. If you order something more than $60, you get a FREE OVER NIGHT SHIPPING. Which is great, especially for those of us who are impatient (ie. me~ lol!)

Another thing that is risk free is ordering a sample first, prior to buying right away without knowing your actual color. There samples are only $3.99 and it comes in every color that their extensions comes in. 

Basic things you need to know

1.) What's the difference between the Standard sets & Remi sets?
-CLICK HERE

2.) How would I know if it's real human hair or not?
-If it's real human hair then you are able to straighten, curl and do other things using hot tools without having the hair melt on you. Also, though most real hair comes with that natural sheen to it, you can definitely spot synthetics/ fake hair because fake hair is often extremely shiny to the point where it looks almost "plastic-like" Another thing is that, you can actually dye/ color real hair as opposed to fake synthetic hair.


3.) Where can I buy real human hair extensions for less than $20?
-No where! Honestly, if you want cheap real hair extensions, you won't find any. TRUST ME! 


*NOTE: Never buy CHEAP hair extensions on EBAY. I have been fooled once & I don't want you to go through the same thing. I always believed that when it comes to makeup, sometimes a low end brand is just as good as most higher end brands. But, when it comes to hair extensions, I kid you not.....don't settle for CHEAP, because what you pay for is definitely what you will get. =/ I know, it's unfortunate because hair extensions are quite pricey, but if you take good care of it, it will last you a very long time. :)


Now, for the transformation...

What do you guys think of the transformation? & Have you ever tried clip on hair extensions before?

FASHION FOCUS: Fringe Boots
Fringes are huge this Spring of 2011. I mean, it is practically everywhere. You can see fringes on clothing, footwear and even accessories. Also, if you've seen Anna Sui's Spring 2011 RTW line, most of it has some kind of Native American inspiration to it. 


Anyways, I got these boots at Bello Iris. There site carries a lot of designer inspired handbags that looks exactly like the original at a fraction of its cost. Aside from handbags, Bello Iris also carries an array of clothing, shoes, swimwear, jewelry & lingerie.

These fringe boots are super cute and at the same time, they keep my feet & legs warm. I love the fact that the fringe is very minimalistic & isn't too overdone. I also love the wrap around string with those cute poms on each end.

However, I do have a couple of things that I'm not too fond of, like I wish the sole was a little bit thicker. Also, I wasn't too excited about the velcro on the sides that acts as the "zipper" of the boots. I wish they either had zipper closures or even just made it a pull over type.

Nonetheless, these Fringe Boots are definitely my best friend for these cold, bummy days :)

Chloe Inspired Brown Carly Zipper Satchel


Alexander Wang Inspired Red Pleated Soft Satchel


Bossa Apple One Piece
