Ruffle Dresses and Camel Coat OOTD

DRESS: ULLA JOHNSON // COAT: MADEWELL // BOOTS: FRANCO SARTO (SIMILAR) // BAG: MARC JACOBS





For some time now I have not been posting a lot of makeup photos and have been rather focusing on, but not because I am sick of makeup--no way no how. Rather, my skin has been very sensitive and since I am not too sure what is causing all this, I am keeping my makeup very light and simple these days. Nothing too fancy, just keeping everything ultra neutral, with a pop of color for my lips sometimes.

And today I am wearing Kat Von D lipstick in A-Go-Go which is probably one of the most gorgeous orange lipsticks in the market. When I first tried Kat Von D's liquid lipstick, I was stunned by how pigmented everything was (almost neon!) and I wasn't too much of a fan! Everything, every shade, felt just a bit too pigmented and too much. I soon learned though that you can sheer it out with a q-tip and the tiniest amount can create turn any crazy pigmented and maybe too neon of a shade into a perfectly wearable color.

So this A-Go-Go is basically my go to color to wear in the summer and fall, but it also works so well with any camel or mustard colored outfits. To match my lips, I am wearing this Ulla Johnson ruffle dress that I got on sale and this softest merino wool sweater coat from Madewell that I also scored around last Thanksgiving. And to pull the entire outfit together, I am wearing black knee high boots to match my black camera bag. This way I was not going too over the top with the ruffle design (I am known to do that sometimes...lol) but managed to tone it all down a bit and keep everything perfectly suitable for just a simple day out. 

What are your thoughts on this look? And what's your favorite orange lipstick? Please share!

XOXO,

The Most Perfect Ankle Boots: TOMS Desert Wedge High


The Most Perfect Ankle Boots: TOMS Desert Wedge High Review & Blogger Style OOTD
The Most Perfect Ankle Boots: TOMS Desert Wedge High Review & Blogger Style OOTD

I'm 5'3'' and although I can't say that I was one of the shortest girls in school, I do always opt for petite and short when it comes to buying jeans and dresses. And although I have no complaints regarding how tall I am, it sometimes feels good to breathe the upper air and I like to enjoy how my calves look with a little boost in height.

However, as a person who absolutely cannot wear anything that pains me, even a little bit, I am terrible in heels. Then there are wedges, but some of them makes my legs look even shorter. To make the matter worse, I absolutely dislike platforms not because of how they look but because I do not like the feeling of being somehow up in the air and not solidly stable on the ground (you can call me weird but that's how it is with me and my shoes). So I have only a couple of shoes in my collection that give me 3 inches or more boost in height and at the same time not make me want to go barefoot, and here's one of the newest ones in my collection and my current obsession: TOMS Desert Wedge High.

Honestly, if you are looking for something that will give you a 3 inch boost in height, make your calves look the most beautifully toned, and pair well with almost anything in your wardrobe, I highly recommend this beauty. I purchased it only two weeks ago, and I am not kidding when I say I've been wearing this nonstop. Actually, I've been running all my errands in this thing, and by that I am being very literal. I can not only just walk hours in this pair, I can complete a mile run if you force me to lol.

I was very hesitant before trying this pair on as I knew that when it comes to wedges and heels, my tolerance level is only up to 2.5 inches and not 3. Then I put these on, rechecked to see I was still looking at that formidable 3 inch wedge because these felt nothing like it, then before I knew it, these were forever mine.

I was able to find this style in this color only available in Zappos, which I have been a royal fan of since 2010 (seven years...it's been that long?!) It's currently on sale from $98 to $69.99 so I highly recommend that you grab this pair before its gone for good!

Also if you are interested there is a shorter ankle version with a lace up design (and 2.5 inch wedge) available here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Let me know what your thoughts are on my new pair of TOMS Desert Wedge High, and stay tuned as I will be posting not just one but many outfit posts wearing this!

XOXO,

HaeMin

The Perfect Oversized Cacoon Coat - Burgundy

The Perfect Oversized Cacoon Coat - Burgundy Blogger Style OOTD
COAT: STYLENANDA (SIMILAR HERE, HERE, HERE) // SWEATER:  HALOGEN // JEANS: TOPSHOP // BOOTS: MARC FISHER // BAG: MARC JACOBS // SUNGLASSES: PROJEKT PRODUKT // SCARF: SIMILAR




As a short girl with comparatively more fat on my bottom half, there's nothing that gives a more slimming look than an oversized coat. Today I am wearing a coat that has been in my collection for a while and is an absolutely favorite of mine because it features two of my favorite things: burgundy and embroidery.

Since I purchased this a couple of years back, I wasn't able to find it in stock but here are a couple of burgundy oversized cacoon coat that I found: here (for $44!!!!!), here, here, here, here. In addition to these, if you are open to other colors, here are some of the coats I found and love: here (seriously loving the oversized fit!), here (almost 40% off!), herehere, here, herehere (own it and love it), here.

These oversized cacoon coats are perfect to wear with any dress, skirt, jeans, you name it. When wearing a skirt, I try to keep the length such that it is either shorter than or longer than the coat itself. Last year and the year before that I wore this coat with a pair of knee high boots and shorts skirts / dresses nonstop because that made me look several inches taller and slimmer, so I highly recommend investing in one of these coats especially if you are more conscious about your belly and/or thighs and want to look taller!

Today I am also wearing a new pair of boots which is very similar to Marc Fisher's Yale Boots (worn here: also another awesome dupe for Acne Jensen Boots), but has star studded details on it. You know about me and those star prints--I am drawn to them like a magnet! I've been looking for a pair just like this but found many that are available to be way much for my budget. In case you are looking for star printed shoes like I am, here are others that I found that are more on the higher end but are literally to die for!!!!!!!! here (60% off!!!!!!!!!!! MUST HAVE THEM NOW), here (60% off!!!!!), here, here (love the one in red!!), here, here, here. If you own any of these or ended up getting one, please share! :)





Hope you enjoyed this look and I wish you the happiest new year! :)

XOXO,
