Outfit Post: Mad Plaid

Just me being silly while documenting my outfit for today. Absolutely nothing special except for my awesome Jazz flats that have been getting a lot of compliments. They are by Olsenboye, Ashley and Mary-Kate's JC Penney line. They are available in black and tan and they are awesome! They are no longer available online and I believe they are already in clearance in the stores. I hope you guys get yours soon!

When Hello Kitty met Doc Martens

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always been into Sanrio characters. My Grandma would always get me stuff from Hello Kitty to My Melody to Little Twin Stars. To this day, I still have some vintage Hello Kitty items I've had since I was a child. I still have this Hello Kitty insulated Thermos that I still occasionally use. Sanrio is definitely part of my childhood and Sanrio is still part of life now. Cuteness is forever!

Anyways, I was surfing the Internets the other day, looking for vintage Doc Martens when I stumbled upon the coolest thing ever! Hello Kitty Docs! Complete with Hello Kitty Bow! Now, this is what I would call "Old School Kawaii". They won't be available until September though but just look at how cute they are!

Outfit Post: Garden Party

Today, 3 different photographers helped me with this outfit post. You can probably tell the difference in their styles but I must say, I'm very lucky to have eager photographers around! They make outfit posts a lot easier and definitely more fun!

We were on our way to our friend's house to help her package up her wedding souvenirs when we spotted this lovely vintage car parked in some empty lot. My friend, Princess, immediately thought that it would make for a good backdrop for my vintagey outfit. It was fun but it started to rain. That cut our shoot shorter than I would have liked. Boo!

It was a good day though! We finished all the souvenirs and we were able to do some catching up which is always nice. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Who ya gonna call?

We've all heard of "booty calls" and "duty calls". It wasn't until yesterday, upon a chance encounter at the freeway, that I have heard of "doody calls". I instantly cracked up and took my camera out to take a picture. (No, I wasn't driving) That is such a clever idea! Just look at that cute dog, giving you a flower as a peace offering for the doody he just left in your garden. Hehehe! I don't have a pet but if you do, check them out!

Pink + Bows + Emma = Loveliness!

The Longest Day of the Year

The longest day in the northern hemisphere, which is also known as "Summer Solstice", happens to be TODAY. I don't want to bore you with stuff about the earth's axis, tilts, or degrees. Summer Solstice only means 2 things. 1) More time to spend outdoors, enjoying the lovely weather and 2) It's officially SUMMER! Hurray!

And the winner is...

Father's Day

This is my Father's Day outfit. It's a lovely day so I decided to wear something light and breezy. I thrifted this bright orange dress in Los Angeles during my short sabbatical a couple of months ago and haven't really gotten a chance to wear it until today. (Then again, I have so much clothes, I don't think there's enough days in the year to wear all of them. Hehe!) It's not really vintage but I just couldn't resist the lovely embroidered design.

Also, in honor of my father who is back home, I wore his cross necklace. I remember the day he bought this necklace. He saw it at the shop and found the design so beautiful and intricate, he ended up buying it. Like any giving father, he offered to let me borrow it. I "borrowed" it years ago and have yet to return it. I just love that it reminds me of the 2 important people in my life that love me unconditionally, my Dad and Jesus Christ. I really am blessed to have such a wise, caring and loving father! I hope everyone had a lovely Father's Day!

Winter Hues

I am definitely NOT a winter person but if there's one thing I miss about winter, it would be legwear. (Heaven knows I've collected a myriad of tights and socks) It has been too hot lately that I can't even justify wearing ruffled socks with my wedges or over-the-knee socks with my skirts and shorts. I know I should be thankful for the wonderful weather but I can't help but reminisce about the times when my legs were fully "clothed" and I didn't have to worry about shaving. Hehehe!

Also, I want to remind you guys that today is the final day to join the Fantastic Followers giveaway! All you have to do is follow my blog and you will be entered automatically! Up for grabs is a lovely Liberty of London Mini Journal Set! The winner will be chosen tonight via and will be announced a little after midnight. Just 1 more follower and we hit 100! Woohoo!

Shop Update: Red and White Polka Dots

Anyone interested in a size 8 red and white polkadot bow dress by Moschino Couture? I'm accepting offers. Please leave your contact details with your comment. Thank you!

Today's shop update theme is, you guessed it, polka dots! For me, polka dots is definitely one of the patterns that exudes a vintage vibe. On bikinis, dresses, or full skirts, polka dots will always be pin-up chic. There's something so fun and groovy about it. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy this shop update. Should you need any inspiration, look no further than Ms. Minnie Mouse herself!

Shop Update: Pretty In Pink

After seeing the Christian Dior Resort 2011 Collection, I was inspired to update my shop with pink items. Nothing emanates femininity and delicateness like pink does. Pink is the ultimate girl color. Plus, I guess it's almost safe to assume that most of you ladies out there have seen "Pretty In Pink" when they were teenagers. I hope you guys enjoy the shop update. More lovelies coming soon!
