OOTD: Fushia & Leather Leggings






It's funny that blogging has helped me be more experimental with my everyday style choices.  A year ago my closet consisted of black, black and more black and would NEVER have thought to wear two contrasting colors together and now I can't get enough of it!  I absolutely love the sharp contrast of bright pop colors against black. 

Completely and utterly OBSESSED with this shade of purple-ish pink fuchsia!  My tunic is actually a dress but I pulled it up with a belt and bunched it.. something about this color and the draped layered reminds me of a flower. :)  

Blazer: H&M, Tunic: Forever 21, Leather Leggings: Romeo & Juliet, Belt: Ann Taylor, Necklace: House of Harlow, Bangles: BCBG & t+j designs, Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Handbag: Chanel

AND! - Congrats to Lauren of L dot C dot for winning my House of Harlow Leather Stations Necklace!                                                                                                          
                                                    Thank you to all who entered!! :)

  27. I like it that blogging has helped alter the way you dress. It is cool isn't it? To have more splashes of colours in your wardrobe. I have friends who love black a lot and I often tell them that the colour you wear could help alter your mood and to get them to wear more colours too. They actually told me it helped.

    It is so difficult to get good asian food in Europe especially countries which are not so touristy.

    Ah, your hubby is a doctor! That is so noble. I wouldn't mind it if my wife calls me a play soldier coz I'll be smirking thinking that I'm really saving lives out there!

    Thank you for sharing with me more about your hubby. I like to get to know my blogger friends more. Do you sometimes share with your hubby what's on your computer screen? I do, so he knows a little about some of my common blog friends. I think I would share with him more about you and your hubs when he's back from overseas (yet again).
