just a little bit of sugar

May 22, 2012






Sugarlips dress, Guess? Girls vest, thrifted sandals, Liz Claiborne bag, Bodyline floral boater hat, gifted orb watch.

Hello hello! I'm back from a really short (two days, to be exact) internet hiatus. I finally got to spend some much-needed time with Aian, and I managed to come up with an outfit post in that time too. He does take all of my outfit photos, which explains why I haven't been posting any of my outfits recently. I'm trying to make up for it though, so please bear with me!

This look is a bit different from my usual ones. I wanted to try what most Japanese magazines call a bittersweet look. I see it a lot in Popteen and Vivi, where they show you how to balance the sugar and spice (cute and cool side) of the look. I tried my best to balance the cute and the cool elements in this outfit. And oh, do you like my dress? The people over at Sugarlips were nice enough to send me this lovely piece for me to wear, and I love it so much! I've been looking all over for a perfect A-line maxi dress, one that isn't too long and falls just a little bit above my ankles, and I'm so happy that I finally have it ♡ I also love the lace detailing in the front. I'll be wearing this with my more mori outfits in the future, that's for sure. But for now I tried a more gyaru (gyaru-ish anyway; I fail at it as I'm not at all gyaru haha ;;) look by wearing it with a denim vest (which is, by the way, from my elementary school days! I'm quite surprised that it still fits me) and platform sandals. The overall look feels very summer vacation-y to me, so let me pretend that I was off to some faraway beach, haha!
