COLOUR! ~Spring Look #1~



Everyday this week I have been injecting "happy" "bright" and "spring-like" colours into my wardrobe. My penchant for grey and black may be stylish but it couldn't hurt to bring a little cheer to my winter wares.



I started off with full-on SUNSHINE! A Forever 21 strapless dress that I fell in love with late last summer but never got a chance to wear (except at the end of a wedding when my bf spilled beer down my other dress) coupled with opaque black tights and my Manolo Blahnik pony haired booties (the combo always makes my legs look super long and not as fat and stumpy as usual) and an incredibly cozy ASOS knit cardigan, which I fastened with a Vintage Rhinestone Brooch.



Playing down the sweet factor, I painted my nails Sephora by OPI in Metro Chic - the best smokey grey/purple/taupe colour out there (and available only at Sephora, when it's even in stock!).



The rest of the week's outfits will be a bit less punchy but still provide a good dose of Spring vitamins.




OH! My Michael Kors "Blizzard" Vicuna Leather Boots just arrived! I got them on Bluefly at a hefty discount. I just opened them here in the office and took some pics of the event. I LOVE them already, the interior is so plush and soft, like the cushiest sheepskin rug. The leather is among the most supple I have ever felt and I adore the way the boot snaps up the side. EEK! Can't wait to wear them tomorrow...with something BRIGHT, of course :)






Ignore the ouchie on my thumb - bad habit :S
