Weekend Wear: Lazy Dressing

You can tell that I'm lazy to dress up by merely looking at the little details of my outfit: I usually don't have a waist cincher or a belt, a bangle or a cocktail ring and on some occasions, my bag usually does NOT match or go with anything I am wearing (and my purse, to me, always plays a pivotal role on normal "inspired" days).


I wore this ensemble to the supermarket... I was feeling a bit blah and thought that I just needed to get out of the house as fast as I could wearing something decent and far from the usual tees and shorts.


I chose this ruffly blouse and paired it with a pair of cut-offs to veer away from being to girly-girly on a casual day and since I didn't want to look like a lazy dresser (though it was indeed a LAZY day to dress up), I piled the accessories on without even pondering about them.



I thought, as long as they were pointing to the same color scheme... then I would be OK. And I guess it came out as a total So-so outfit...I always try to break my bad habit of being overly matchy-matchy but heck.... it was a trip to the supermarket ONLY.


So off we were to do the groceries... with me and my pale legs.. heehee...

Top: From Bangkok
Cut-off shorts: Unionbay
Wedges: USA Online Find
Sling bag: Nine West
Watch: F21
Necklace: F21


Speaking of being overly color-coordinated, I've seen the trailer of the upcoming movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic" and I just have to say that I'm a bit surprised to find out that Patricia Field was the person behind Isla Fischers matchy-matchy outfits...
It came to me as a surprise, because Patricia has gained so much popularity from doing such superb styling in Sex and The City, The Devil Wears Prada and Ugly Betty. But though I am a obviously big fan of coordinated stuff, something about what I've seen from the movie so far, looks a bit wrong. She usually gets away with putting together unlikely stuff and creating a great work of art as a result (think: SJP in SATC series...), but this one makes me think, "Hey, I know I'm far from being a great dresser, but these safely matched outfits look like I styled them somewhere in dreamland!" heeeheee (nice try Peaches...only in your dreams...)
I've been a BIG FAN of Sophie Kinsella's book series (I even thought Becky Bloomwood and I shared the same life when they came out with Shopaholic and Baby just when we found out I was having my little Lexie...heehee), but on those rare chapters where Becky detailed her outfits, they weren't as color coordinated as Isla's stuff (but hey she looks so good even after having a baby!)...

I dare not question Patricia Field's creations though... who knows? This might be the next big thing! I'm still keeping my hopes high that the movie will have better outfits in store for us... I can't wait for February!!!

Annie said...

I love the little turquoise detail. Very sweet!

rachel said...

oh thats such a cute outfit to go to the supermarket in! I usually look like garbage when I go to Rustan's or Puregold. haha.
it's funny you mentioned snowball cos I was actually thinking of "neige" which is french for snow! im not sure yet, I am the most indecisive person ever!
and about the vest, I decided not to get them :( I just found out that winter officially hits us this saturday, which means it'll get far too cold for me to wear the lovely vest! it's already super cold as it is..

Anyway! oooh, my absolute favorite from the series was Shopaholic and Baby! You had a red-haired bitch of your own?? hehe. ;p I caaan't wait to see the movie. I think Isla would make a great Becky!

good evening bros. I'm really into shoes and I have been looking for the sake of that particular brand. The prices as regards the sneakers are about 320 bucks on every page. But finally I base this location selling them for the benefit of half price. I in reality love these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will definetly order them. what can you tell me about these?
