Have you embraced your mood for summer yet?
Whether you have or have not (which I'm sure most of you have :)), here's a pop of coral..oops I mean color, that will not fail your spring transition to summer: Peachy Coral  

This in-between shade of pastel and neon has soaked its way to summer, as seen decorating Louis Vuitton as well as Suno Resort'13 Collection (Jacobs and Osterweis-Beatty approve!). With its pinkish hue and tangerine hint, it's a perfect color to warm-up to summer. Experience the fun of this color from your head to toe.
Who wouldnt fall for this color? Cos I certainly has!
So, what do you think?

P.S.: Who's up for summer mullet dress, fringe, arm candy and peachy lip&cheeks!?

[Nails Diary: Outlined Nails (O.P.I Just Spotted The Lizard)]

Cant help but notice this outlined nails trend that keeps popping up around.  Well I  must admit that I didnt have immediate fondness towards this trend, but curiosity crept up on me that I brought myself to actually try it.

And...I got deceived by the simplicity of it. It was actually hard to outline nails, especially when you have no nail liner or special dotting tools.
But worry not, for there are many ways lead to Rome
Thanks to my used eye-liner brush, I cud successfully outlined these nails.
Yay to "recycling" ♥

I suggest you to use the pen eye liner, cos it gives more control while you outline.  And you can also use your eye-liner directly instead of using it with nail polish (but, wudnt it be more costly?)
Well, pen marker is also another option. But I personally pick the eye-liner brush cos it resembles the strokes paint brush produces.  The strokes are somehow nicer and more suave.

As for the nail polish, I finally got my hand on the O.P.I Just Spotted The Lizard (from Amazing Spider Man) that I've purchased while ago. It's definitely a perfect dupe to my wishlist, Chanel's Peridot, at a more compromising price :p  And many reviews mentioned that it lasts longer than Chanel. What more can I say but "BUY!" *tee-hee*
The theme, well, is very obvious. In case you guys are wondering what have I drawn on my middle finger there, well it's a spider web *I've tried my best*.
So it's like "Spider Man captures the Lizard" :p

I'm thinking about givin this "outlined nails" another try, a pastel nail polish+neon outlined ♥  Cos black outline gives out this dirty fingers' feeling :( but however it does intensify the nail polish color tho'

Well, good luck givin it a try girls! And cant wait for The Amazing Spider Man: Garfield Stone duo ♥♥♥

The arrival of summer marks the arrival of the color white. With all the heat comin up, white is a definite yes color for summer
And...with the fluorescence keeps on reigning, white is welcome as both neutralizer and enhancer to the neon palette. Well you know, cos overdoing a neon getup may sometimes lead to dragtitude. And no one wants that, aight!?
So, for instance from the first two looks, sport your Little White Dresses (summer must have ladies!) and let them act as the neutral base that accentuate your statement neon pieces.
Or simply go white-on-white to rock your neon nails (yes to Chanel Holiday )

Have fun and get creative with this summer neutral palette Good luck!

[CFDA Awards 2012: Simplicity It Is!]

They say...CFDA Awards is where fashion fetes its best.  Agree or disagree? Well, you can decide it for yourself :) 
Here are the round-up looks of the night ♥ (as usual, red carpet looks always manage to intrigue me with the varieties them bring) 

I'll start with my favorites... 
Zoe Saldana held me captivated in a stunning Prabal Gurung sheer panel black gown.  They fit each other perfectly in an explicit away.
Salute to Prabal Gurung. He successfully captures the bold and daring essence yet still maintaining the graceful factor. 
While the minimalism in the hairdo and accessories, the smokin smokey eyes, and yes the catchy mary-jane..all just fall into the right place.
Definitely my most favorite tonight
Another excitement also comes from (one-of-my-favorite) Asian-origin designers: Alexander Wang; and yet it's another black simplicity that stole my heart.  Wang brings his signature black into the design of a cocktail dress with a croc-leather twist and asymmetrical drapery skirt that creates this distinct edgy androgynous feel. Carine Roitfeld looks tres chic in it!
Wish I were to have that dress in the little closet of mine #boo-hoo
Model ☑ Michael Kors Mono-tone Dress ☑ Gold Accessories ☑ Sexy Up-do ☑
Both Joan Smalls and Erin Heatherton rock their Michael Kors dress to the max with a min effort (or can I say effortless). The minimal styling with a hint gold simply brings out the luxury of the dress.
Here's another stunner at the red carpet that also looks effortlessly gorgeous, Hilary Rhoda in Rebecca Minkoff multi-blue maxi dress.  Simply reminds me of the sea   The legs are her main accessory here I guess.

I can say that the term "less is more" does apply, that simplicity fetes at its best at CFDA Awards 2012

For the best accessories, I'd say Elettra Wiedemann's.  The model accessorizes her Rachel Roy cut-out burgundy dress with Lulu Frost statement necklace that goes just right with her Rachel Roy ‘Farrah’ leather architectural open toe metal tri-colour sandals. An absolute stunning statement she makes!
As for the shoes, I'll go with Nicholas Kirkwood for Prabal Gurung that grace both Zoe Saldana and Jessica Chastain looks that night. Which one is your favorite? I, myself, cant decide.  Both colors look fantastic!

Here are other fashion darlings that also deliver quite a catch in the eyes
Dree Hemingway and Tabitha Simmons laidback style is surprisingly acceptable and also favorable.  As a reminder that red carpet is not always all bout glam, what's with a little casual style.  In love with both Tabitha Simmons' boots and Proenza Schouler peacock jacket Edginess alert! *Congrats Tabitha for winning Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Accessory Design*
 The Metallics
Shu Pei in Vera Wang - Lily Collins in Marchesa - Arizona Muse in DVF
Lily Collins is the winner in this category, she looks sweetly amazing H2T, while Shu Pei and Muse shoes fail to make an impression.
The Patternists
Liu Wen in SunoDakota Fanning in Proenza Schouler - Crystal Renn in Zac Posen - Karolina Kurkova in Tommy Hilfiger - Kate Bosworth in Altuzzara
A pattern party is happening on the CFDA 2012 red carpet, with Bosworth and Renn nailing the look just right. As for the others: Liu Wen with the boots, Dakota with the gammy's hair, and Karolina with too-much orange, they just seem kinda off-the-beat.
Last but not least, The main heroines of the night, The Olsen twins, both in The Row.
Congrats girls for winning Womenswear of the Year Award (for The Row)
MK debuting her new brunette hair..a yay or nay?

Which looks do you like best?
