Sheer Fabric

Sep 28, 2008

I kinda like dresses with sheer panels, it makes you look sexy without baring too much skin. It keeps the mystery don't you think? I am loving this chloe dress from net-a-porter

Hosiery lust

It's been raining on and off here in this side of the world and it's the only time it's cold enough to try "fall" related apparel. Been wearing jeans more of late because wearing dresses can be a bit cold on the legs. I don't want to try the opaque leggings though, it will be too hot.

(the sartorialist)

Last Saturday, I saw this acquaintance of mine wearing black fishnet stockings. Gasp! She looks utterly chic and I thought there must be a solution to wearing dresses when the weather is nuts. Then I saw this picture and fell in love with her hosiery.


Problem is, where to buy?


Some pics we took when we went back for a visit to my mom's hometown

And my silk fuschia gladiator sandals that has one strap broken (too delicate)

Flowers and Butterflies

Sep 12, 2008

This is what I wore today for a trip around the city with my family. The dress is thrifted and I really loved it the first time I saw it.

The only accessory I wore is this butterfly necklace made with carved opal wings, sapphire body and diamond antennae. It looked like the two ( dress and necklace ) were made for each other because when worn, it looked like it was flying over a field of flowers with the embroidered neckline.

First outfit post

Sep 11, 2008

This is what I wore for my parent's silver wedding anniversary (excuse the poor picture quality). I got inspired by a Lanvin dress and wondered how layered ruffles would look on me. My planned outfit was this size 2 Rebecca Taylor silk dress with rosettes. But alas, I am a size 4 i think especially in my bust area so the aforementioned dress sat on my closet. A day before, I accompanied my mom to the salon and while waiting for her, I went to this thrift store and saw the dress. Such a steal! Don't you just love it when you get something nice and unexpected that doesn't cost an arm and a leg? :)

A brief introduction

hi! i am cherryl, a 20 something who loves fashion, dresses in particular. I got inspired by other personal style blogs so i decided to create my own blog. I love dresses because it enables me to decide what to wear in 5 minutes and would have to find only the corresponding bag and shoes to go with it. Of course there are also days when we all have to wear jeans according to mood and weather. Watch out for my other posts, see yah :)
