I saw these super colorful necklace and bracelet a while back at a nearby Naughty Stores, which is a budget accessory store like Claire's Store in the US, and for some weird reason I got attracted to them. They're made of light wood, and have a Carribean feel to them. I didn't have any idea at the time how I was going to wear them, but since they were so cheery and only cost about 2 bucks each, I got them anyway. Boy, so glad I did! Not long afterwards I stumbled upon a blog by a lady who lives in Panama, titled The Joy of Fashion, in particular this post, and I got all inspired.
I'm going to mass at Church, then to a Sunday lunch at Pluit area, and these cute babies are just the perfect accessories for the beige shirt dress that I got from Singapore, adding some spunk to an otherwise very neutral, pale (aka boring) pallette.
I guess one should never underestimate the power of cheap accessories. Haha!
I totally forgot the name of the restaurant we went to at Pluit, but it's an old-school Chinese restaurant, packed with families having their Sunday brunch. Now, I couldn't resist of snapping a picture of this old-fashioned tea pot, it looked like the one my late Grandma used to have! So cute!
The hem length is perfect. Not too long, not too short. And I love that it's not tight but still has some shape to it. Nicely fitted and super comfortable to wear.
I love the tiny strips of Burberry-like piping on the sleeves and pockets.
Also the huge saucer-like buttons at the front, pockets and chest flaps.
And of course, the three-color platform wedges I got as a gift some time ago finished the look and bound all the colors together.
