Buttony Blue Technicolor

Guess, what do you think the background is?
Today is a super busy but productive day. I went furniture shopping for a future new residence - yes, I'm moving to a new place - and got the whole sets for living room, bedroom, and dining room in just under three hours, including eating my lunch, browsing around various furniture stores, picking out models and color themes, and hassling over the prices. I never buy anything without bargaining if possible, and if I canot get a lower price, usually I would ask for something extra. This time I got a dresser drawer table for free! They wanted to give me a chair at first, but I politely refused and ask the nice sales lady if she could offer me something better, and lo and behold, she took me for a tour around the store and we ended up agreeing on the dresser drawer.
I think it's a win-win solution for both the store owner and me, because, hey, what buyer doesn't love a great deal, and what seller doesn't love a buyer who just walks in, already knows what she wants, picks and pays right away? Haha!


Some time ago, I won a giveaway from Bisola and Dammie Gee, two ladies behind this super creative, ultra colorful blog, Fifth & Sixth's Closet. I haven't seen any USPS package box since I flew home from the US, so I was very excited when received it!
Lookie lookie here! I got this lovely, unique and colorful bib necklace made of buttons! Thank you, Bisola and Damie! I truly like it! I think it's handmade. Is it handmade? I think so. If you visit Bisola and Damie's blog, you'd definitely see that these ladies have an amazing sense of colors. Their color combinations are bold and unexpected, yet fabulous. I mean, look at this necklace they sent me!
This is how I styled it for today's outfit...
Closer look...
And since I'm going to Church, I threw on this blue cropped top to layer the whole outift. I aimed for monochromatic look, since there are so much going on with the necklace, shoes, and purse. No bracelets today!
This cropped top is quilted and can be worn with so many different outfits. I have similar cropped top in various colors, they are very versatile.
And I'm still in love with these Ana Eslie platform wedges I got as Chinese New Year's gift.
Aaaaaand this is the background of the first picture! I went to dinner at Plaza Indonesia after furniture shopping and Church.

Dress: Arizona. Shoes: Ana Eslie (gift). Cropped top: unbranded. Purse: Sogo. Scarf tied on the bag: thrifted, from Miami. Earrrings: Accesorize, Singapore. Necklace: gift.


Aaaaand, I was featured again in 365 Challenge & Link Party at Allison's Two Thirty-Five Designs blog. This time it was my plaid shirt ala cowgirl post. Thank you, Allison! Your email was a perfect end for a Friday! Please check Allison's post here, and don't forget to join her link party! And if you'd like to check how I incorporated the casual plaid shirt into office wardrobe, read the original post here.

Happy Sunday, All!

This is such a fabulous color-blocking look! The color combination has the potential to look juvenile, but you made this look very sophisticated! :) That bib necklace is so divine and a perfect accessory for Spring/Summer!! :D
