Ocean blue

 
 
 

Dress: from AliExpress
Bag: Balenciaga
Shoes: Zara 
Bangle: David Yurman 

I know I wear lots of sleeveless shift dresses.  Well, they are good for lots of occasions, easy to style which make them perfect pieces for happy hour after work or to take to travel.  You can get styled in minutes.  If it is chilly, just add a jacket, cardigan or scarf.  This silk dress is from AliExpress.com and it costs less than $60.  This is one of the best buys I got from this website.  Great quality and cut.

Studded Red Bootie

I am crazy about these red oho booties.  Kate and Sienna, two of my style icons are wearing Chloe Susan bootie that costs $1,290.  I found a similar style on Zara that is just as delicious, but at a fraction of the cost.  The black ones on Zara is sold out.  They just started offering the red version.  Grab them when you can.

Love story about a skirt

 
 

Top: Helmut Lang 
Skirt: Ralph Lauren black label 
Shoes: Zara
Bag: Balenciaga
Necklace: Hermes

After having fun with lots of colors, I started going back to my roots - neutral tones again before I decide to bring colors back in again.  The highlight of this ensemble is definitely this skirt.  I first spotted this skirt in a Ralph Lauren store when I was doing window shopping years ago.  The original price was outrageously expensive even though the moment I laid my hand on this baby,  I know it is worth every penny.  This is one of the most gorgeously made skirt I have ever seen.  I think I spent at least 30 minutes circling around this skirt in the store, unable to say goodbye.  I had to eventually.  Two years after that, we reunited, in Ralph Lauren outlet store in Orlando.  There was the skirt of my dream, in my size, on a sales rack, at $150, 10% of the original price, waiting for me.  The rest is history....... :-)
