OoTD -> Hello Kitty!

Me, trying on clothes in Gibbons changing room. Notice the tag on the jeans. lol

Personally I think at $38 my top was over priced but I just had to have it. I like that its longer on the sides & back, giving it a slightly slouchy look.

Show Time @ Shine's!

For those of you that don't know, my mother has a bridal boutique called "At Last Bridal". She brings in wedding gowns, mother of the bride dresses and formal attire. A week ago today, she held a fashion show at Shine's Place (formerly Azione & Vintage in Bermuda).

Here are some behind the scenes photos I captured 
Outfit #1! Blue cocktail dress with matching black sequin belt! The ankle boots are from Barratts in London and bought the little purse at Gibbons in Bermuda!   

Striking a pose is one of best friends, Lawriette. She flew in the night before and showed up ready to go!  

Outfit #2! Pink and green with printed Calla Lilies, this gown has an asian feel. 

Form fitting, pooling on the ground with a see through back, this dress is sure to attract some attention.

My friend Shantarrae looks like a love goddess draped in this pink Grecian inspired number!

Aww don't my friends look BEAUTIFUL! 

Lawriette rocking a purple 80s throwback! I love the ruffles on the bottom.
My aqua and brown criss cross pattern dress with a daringly high split is always a show stopper! 

Thanks to my friends for their constant and unwavering support! LOVE YOU GUYS

Gossip Girl Obsession! - Belles de Jour

It's the start of the new sitcom season and I'm already behind, eek!
Oh well, FABULOUS can never be rushed!

(Photo from Gossip Girl Fan)

Gossip Girl starts off this season in PARIS, one of the most chic cities in the world. Filled with romance and whimsy, Blair's Oscar de la Renta dress mimics the feel of this trend-setting city. I love the warm hues, flirty skirt and embroidered waist line. Posed in front of a painting, she's as pretty as a picture! lol

Do's & Don'ts - Empire waist dress!

Standing at the ATM, I noticed the woman in front of me was wearing a dress I had recently purchased. Unfortunately, she had a very "boxy" shape and the dress only accentuated that. Thus the inspiration for this blog...

Empire Waistline
Definition: A type of dress or top where the waist line is raised above the natural waistline, sometimes as high as right below the bust. Best on slender-on-top or petite figures, the empire dress creates the illusion of length and camouflages a bottom-heavy figure or thick waist. (from

Yes, I know I'm petite but this is just a little friendly advice. Empire waists are great from concealing a little extra weight around the middle...

However, not so much if your bust/waist/hips are relatively the same diameter. This creates a "boxy" shape which is not flattering on anyone.

Here's a bright alternative that will help to create a waist!

Balance out larger hips with a longer sleeve, creating the illusion of an "hour-glass" shape!

Two Looks, Two Budgets feat. Golden Yellow!

I love H&M! No matter what your budget or style, you can always find something to suit both! (Oh and the fit of H&M clothing is impeccable!)

Here are two looks I created using H&M's fabulous website.

I started with the yellow skirt and paired it with a silky blouse and heels to dress it up. A wide belt to accentuate the waist and tasseled heels that give it an ethnic feel.
For an office look, try a pair of conservative pumps and maybe a jacket.
Be glam in a golden toned beaded tunic and a pair of sexy heels!
If the summer nights get a little chilly, pair this with some skinny jeans!

Well that was fun! =) 
Has anyone else created looks using H&M's website?

OoTD - They Call Me Mellow Yellow!

I LOVE the colour yellow! Unfortunately in the winter time I go an awful shade of albino white. LOL (Difficult to believe but true.) So in the summer, when I've regained my caramel complexion, I reach for yellow tops, shorts and anything else I can get my greedy hands on.
