Never take a step back when the tides are changing



Please excuse the tag hanging from the beret,its still new~

Mustard shouldered blazer:vintage,thrifted
Inner navy top:online store
Bandage skirt and heels:Topshop
Tie dye scarf(inVESTment piece):Swap with Michelle of Glisters and Blisters
Beret:gift,borrowed from sister
Accessories:Random/gifts/vintage


Really sorry I couldn't blog an outfit yesterday as I met up with my love and we had supper till pretty late. All I could think about when I got home was to sleep. Surely full speed up ahead this week. Huge thank you to everyone for your encouragement on me finding a new job. I feel really touched and so motivated to keep hunting for the right one!

Colors was all that was running through my mind today. But of course not an outburst of colors,if not I would be too over done.Putting on the beret makes me feel as if I'm in Paris. It's surely a place I will have to visit someday. Filled with all the tall buildings and the Eiffel tower of course,so romantic.

Recent purchases I made and finally took photos today to share with everyone. My new OPI nail color came today and it's from the latest Alice in Wonderland collection. I got 'Off with Her Red' and its so beautiful. The red is really intense and I love rich colors like this. But now,I guess I need to purchase the rest of the collection as it is a must-buy for me I feel.
Minnetonka moccasins do you see? I picked out the one in the brown suede and I really cannot wait to wear them out. But its for next month's Chinese New Year and oh my it's hard to resist not looking at these beauties. Oh,for those who are lost.
Chinese New Year is a yearly celebration that we Chinese have. A New Year and we younger ones get red packets with money in them from family and relatives. Lots lots of yummy food too!

Last day to enter the Heel Candies-One for you,One for me competition! Do send in your entries if you have not done so. Attractive prizes waiting for one lucky person~

Valencia, you make that mustard yellow blazer look amazing. I love how you paired it with a blue beret, plus the blue tie dye scarf. It really goes together and I would have never thought of the combo. I love your new moccasins, so adorable. I can't wait for you to model that nail color on your pretty fingers! I love to hear reviews on different OPI shades so I know which ones to buy! xoxo

That blazer is such a fab color! And I used to have those exact Minnetonka Moccasins and I wore them so so much that they literally fell apart and I was forced to throw them away! I need a new pair seriously!

Nice outfit!! Still love that tie-dye scarf and your new moccasins are gorgeous!! I also saw the Alice in Wonderland OPI colours, and the one you've picked is definitely my favourite too!! You should take a photo of your nails while wearing that colour, I'm curious :)

Love the new header by the way!!
