Don't ever put a flame behind you when you are about to fart


Cardigan:Atmosphere,swap with Maddie
Black dress:Flea market find
Knit ribbon bow:gift from sister
Accessories:All random
Shoes:Jooks





Some days,nothing beat a simple black dress to throw on. I think a lot of us always thought we found the perfect LBD (Little Black Dress),but after awhile it doesn't feel right no more. But now I know for sure today this black dress is the one. It's the recent flea market find I got last Saturday and I got it for a steal of just 10 over dollars. It has the perfect length and the detailing of the front buttons is beautiful. I'm not sure if you can see clearly in the second last photo,but it is so lovely.

I'm starting to have a little free time during work these few days which I enjoy because I get to go blog reading again and replying to everyone's comments. Oh my,I don't want to think on how behind I am as it does scare me a little always. 

My hair color is a mess now. You can't really see in photos all the time,but the ends of my hair are like fading brown and some parts of my hair are black. Yes,it was a badly done DIY home dyeing. But nope,I'm not changing my hair color. It will be black,so I have got to get jet black hair dye now. Love the richness of really black hair even though it may look like you're wearing a wig up front. It surely is not on me.

P.S The bag from the previous post is from Forever 21. Forgot to add it in yesterday.

5 more days till the 1st day of Chinese New Year~

What an amazing flea market find, that dress looks so beautiful and so comfy, a total score!

I also fall in and out of love of my LBDs all the time. I wonder how that happens? ...one day you have to buy it, and then the next it seems so out of date?

But I do think this LBD you're wearing is definitely the one! It seems so versatile - I can totally picture it from work to dinner to drinks! (That is the sign of a great LBD!)
