Short and Sweet

Like most every fashion blogger, I live for styling challenges that push your creativity and imagination to put together random items (especially ones that don't necessarily fit your 
personal style) to create an outfit and, as Tim Gunn would say on Project Runway, "Make it work!"

For me, the ultimate affirmation of a job well done comes from followers and viewers of our work. I love it when people take time out to actually read what I write on the blog, or make an effort to notice (and actually comment on) something you did differently or out of the box, so to speak.

Which is not to say that everything I do is unique! Far from it! In many instances, a dress can be so perfect by itself that you don't really need to do much!

This is one such dress! I took one look at it and I was instantly smitten! I love its color, the print is extraordinary, the material is rich and lustrous, and the cut is impeccable! I literally didn't do anything but fit into it! I just love it!







Outfit details: 
Dress from Indonesia

  6. I think I understand about facing fashion challenges - the thing about blogging is that it really encourages me to step outside of my comfort zone, fashion-wise, and I can see that you've been encouraged as well! Love this dress and the styling is absolutely superb! You are so gorgeous!

  10. I understand exactly what you mean, I'm not a fashion blogger but I think every blogger has a moment where we struggle with creativity. And once we do something different it's nice when someone notices. At first I felt the same way you did but then I realized only about 5% of my views are people who comment so maybe somewhere out there someone does notice your effort and just don't comment. By the way great outfit I'm glad I discovered your blog! :)

  17. Soooo gorgeous! I love that dress <3 I thought at first that was a necklace but then I realized it's part of the design. That's great since you can minimize the accessories :) Love your Chanel bag!
