Roman Holiday is one of those movies I can watch over and over again. The fashion of that era is one I admire very much and Audrey Hepburn's costumes in the movie are fantastic. Inspired by her, I pulled out this skirt that I never seem to wear because of the length and paired it with a fitted top. I would've put on a scarf like hers but couldn't find the perfect print hehe.

And speaking of holidays, I'd like to share some photos of our trip to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. It is a wonderful city with friendly people, good food and amazing shopping :)

This is the City Mosque in Kota Kinabalu. It is an exemplary of Islamic Contemporary architecture and the man made lagoon surrounding it made it look like it was floating on water.

And sharing one personal picture with you guys, of the boyf and I infront of the Menara Tun Mustapha (Sabah Foundation Building). This building is one of only four hanging structures in the world. It has a revolving restaurant in the 18th floor but sadly, we didn't get to eat there due to time constraints. le boyf doesn't smile very much in photos because he's kind of formal and conservative but he loves it when I make him laugh. :) At the end of the trip, I realized that all of the shirts he wore were the ones I bought for him ( I pick something for him too when i go shopping).

Have a great day everyone!!

Che,

Love that green skirt on you and the necklace. You´re so vavavoom here. Don´t worry about your non-smiling le boyf, my hubz too doesn´t usually smile in the photos but he´s funny nevertheless.

Have a lovely day tom!

That outfit is very Audrey! I love the green skirt and matching belt. And the travelling pictures are very pretty...makes me wanna go there. You're a very cute couple, too! I always tend to pick out clothes for my boyfriend, too, but I haven't seen him wear them all that often...Hmm.
