Wrapped up in white sheets with the sun scorching your butt

Cape:Black clover
Dress:vintage,local flea market
Wedges:bought from Valerie
Sunnies & hair bow:gift from sister
Bracelets:Swap/forever 21
Accessories:All random


Granny-ish look today I felt. The whole time I kept feeling I look older but now looking at the photos,I think otherwise. The dress I'm wearing was a flea market find from last weekend and its so easy to throw on with anything. The material is really comfy and lightweight too,perfect for warm sunny days these days and it will only get hotter too.

Red and black goes well together,a great color match. So here is my sparkly wedges and my new nail color from OPI I was talking about yesterday. It didn't appear as bright as I thought,but I love how deep and rich the red came out. Looks so much like you took red lipstick and color it on your nails. To me,it looks kind of vampy with my hands being rather fair and deep nail color.
Random thought came to my mind this morning,I thought of being a hand model. Means you only get featured for your hands in ads. Its pretty cool to me and you get to earn extra income too. Just something random though.

The giveaway has closed for now.
Winner will be announced later as Valerie is currently in Japan for work and I'm not sure if she has the time to go through the selection of a winner with me. Anyhow,will keep you posted.

Wow Valencia, you look beautiful, not granny-ish at all. I love the cape and the bow in your hair and pairing the whole outfit with those red shoes was genius. Also, I do think you have pretty hands and if you can get a job on the side being a hand model, why not? The nail polish looks lovely. I love that color on you. Also, your bangles are so cute! xoxo

Erica Leigh said...

so NOT grannyish, i promise! i love it. and i'm really like the light blue; very trendy for upcoming spring, yeah? i want to buy lots of light blue dresses now (but one will do hehe). i'm also liking the contrast of the light blue with the dark red; i think they look so cool together!

also, i think this is my favorite title for a post yet. haha! i wish we had a little bit of sunshine. the gray skies are getting depressing. :(

<3!!!! looooove you!
