I like ASOS for a very simple reason: international shipping is free! Yeah! And I had pretty good shopping experience with them. Bought a denim skirt from them a few years back. The quality is quite decent! Recently I bought a POP mosaic eye-shadow palette from them and the package went missing in transit. BUT upon contacting ASOS, they resent another palette without any additional cost on my end. So hurrah! You can’t shop ASOS at one go, they simply have too many pretty things to browse through, so I’m just going to focus on denim today. I want to get a new pair of jeans. Specifically, I’m looking for a pair of dark blue skinny jeans with contrast stitching. No, I’m not going to get it online, jeans is something you got to try on first. BUT.. it doesn’t hurt to look right?


I am inclined towards full length skinnies and straight jeans. They make the legs look longer and slimmer if you choose a dark wash.


Seventies is back. I remember wearing bell bottoms / flare jeans about a decade ago in my late teens/ early adulthood. đŸ˜¦ Not that I regret throwing out my bell bottoms , it’s not as if I can fit into those jeans. My butt has expanded quite a bit since then. I think it’s important to wear flares long enough to cover your shoes…. And, you have to wear high high platforms or heels if you want to create an illusion of longer legs. Wear it any shorter, you’ll risk looking shorter than you really are. See this:


I don’t mind a pair of flares provided I can find one in my length. Its annoying, I tell you, every pair that I’ve seen so far is too long. You can’t shorten a pair of flares without affecting the shape. To accommodate my height, I have to remove quite a significant portion of the hem. It’s pointless….. Sigh..

Boyfriend jeans are the most unflattering jeans. Folded like this is worse! Hello stumpy! It should just stay in your boyfriend’s closet.


If I have skinnier legs, I would love to get jeans in soft pastel colour like peach or white.



This is so pretty and easy to wear! I heart!


Or how about this cute romper!

Let’s go shopping! – Urban Outfitters March 16, 2011

Sometimes, when I am bored, I like to do some imaginary shopping online. Let’s pretend I have wads of cash. It doesnt hurt anyone unless I really pull out my credit card from my wallet. I am saying  U.N.L.E.S.S.

Let’s go shopping at Urban Outfitters today. I like Urban Outfitters for their preppy designs. The silhouettes of the clothings are often simple and clean. They are not neccesarily on trend items, by that, I don’t mean that the designs are not trendy. They are, but at the same time, most of UO’s designs are more likely to last you more than a few seasons. I said ‘most’ not ‘all’. My only complain .. emm.. wish is that they will do free international shipping one day like ASOS! Hear that UO? Kerching Kerching! Here are 15 items I heart from UO.

Kimchi Blue Nora Dress

Minimarket Ikat Dress

Ecote Strapless Two-in-One dress Kimchi Blue Mesh-Accent Dress
