Super slouchy potato sits by the beach afraid to move at all


Velvet dress:Christmas gift from Shantee
Headband:Swap with Faridah
Shoes:Minnetonka moccasins







This dress makes me want to run and run in the huge fields and pluck fresh flowers to put in my hair. To a land far far away. Didn't get to pile on on accessories today as I was once again rushing out of the house for work. But this dress really gave me what I need in an outfit,its velvet with leopard like texture on the dress and it is so slimming too with the waist.

My hair is getting way way too long and hard time to control this mane of mine. Everyone is asking me to give it a trim but I really really can't bear to let any of it go. It may seem funny but oh my,the times and moments I've been through with my hair. So funny yes I know.
Been awhile since I last won a blog's giveaway. I was happy to know when I won Christine of Tie Me A Bow's Valentine's Day giveaway and received them today. She wrapped everything so beautiful and made the wrapping with one of the colors I loved,mint green. Now I've got to find some nice dresses to pin them on.

Tomorrow marks the last day of my horrid office job,celebrate with me as we say YAY~ No more rants on that yucky job no more. Thanks to all who left me encouraging comments regarding to that:)

Special thanks to Gemma from Fade to Black for the shout out on her blog on my previous post with her awesome clutch! Do check her out,she has amazing style and a daily inspiration to me.

That dress is gorgeous Valencia Lia!! Love it toned down with the mocs.

I felt the same way with my super long hair. It was hard to part with it, but I really wanted to donate it to a good cause!

Velvet dress, so cute! I've been looking for a velvet dress, love yours, very simple and cute

michelle_ said...

that's such a fabulous giveaway gift !
really loving the gorgeous lace and ribbon details !

and yesh i do feel like you're going to go to the fields of flowers and pick them all !
you're looking uber sweet with that headband too !

and i know the feeling of the haircute syndrome . my hair is getting long too (i havent cut it for 5 months).. i think your hair suits the eclectic vibe of ur outfits.. if u cant take them off, maybe ask ur hairstylist to give some face framing layers at the front, and long layers the back.. u wont loose the length, but it'll give ur hair body and movement :D

hope that helpss..

DONT FORGET TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY IF YOU'RE AN INDONESIAN RESIDENT HERE!
