…And I’m back from my hibernation! 😛 You all having a good 2011 so far? I’ve been trying to organize my life after two whole months of shameless splurging and indulgence. No regrets though; it was totally worth it! 😛 But now I think it’s time to get back on track and refocus on work, a healthier lifestyle, and of course blogging! So, as I settle back in, I leave you with a couple things that I’m currently craving. Make sure you click on the image to get a better view!
Bow Blouses: Considering my incessant obsession with feminine motifs, I am actually really surprised that I don’t own a single bow blouse. These look great paired with tailored skirts and shorts as well as one of this season’s hottest trend — flared pants. The rich, burgundy color and sheer fabric of the ASOS Pussy Bow Ruffle Blouse (shown above) is just icing on the cake!
Bow Shoes: Especially the big bows in the front, inspired by Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 collection. The ladylike, vintage feel of the Nine West Woodland pumps (shown above) combined with a pointed toe and a chunky heel make it a perfect, cheap alternative to the Louis Vuitton ones.
Cutesy Prints: I love florals, but lately my attention is shifting towards other, super adorable and irresistible prints. Butterflies, hearts, birds, and bows — there is a part of me that just refuses to grow up! 😛
Ultra-feminine Shorts: I tend to tilt towards dresses and skirts, but of late all the feminine detailing (think lace, ruffled, scalloped, crochet) on shorts is totally stealing the show!
Risqué Lips: Be it deep burgundy, neon orange, or fuchsia, I am really looking forward to experimenting with all kinds of crazy lip colors this year.
Short Hair: Short hair is so hot right now; so many celebs have traded their long locks for a short, edgy cut in the past few months. I have had this urge to chop off my hair for a while now, and with a boyfriend who loves short hair on women, it’s kind of hard to not be tempted. Whether or not I’ll go ahead with this is something I guess we will all have to wait and find out.
So, what kind of fashion and beauty cravings has 2011 brought you?
