separate pieces

I know, I know... I haven't posted in a while. However, most of my big projects are completed now, so I finally got the chance to write up a post. I only have a week and a half of school left!! So excited! Summer is so close. In the past summers, I never really went anywhere much. But I really want to do more this summer - after all it is the summer before my senior year! (: What are you all up to this summer?

Sugarlips Apparel was kind enough to send me this dress, and I received it in the mail the other day. I was so excited to receive the package and open it to see the dress that I got. :3
I love the illusion this dress gives. The "detached" look of the top and bottom gives the illusion that you're wearing a top and a skirt instead of one whole piece. I'm in love with the tangerine outlines on this dress; it gives a beautiful contrast against the gray.

I also adore the back of this dress. I've always liked the look of a split back but never had the confidence to wear one because of the skin I would be exposing (and there's always that.. "what bra should I wear with this" dilemma). However, this dress is able to provide me that split back look without having to worry about actually showing any skin (and I don't have to worry about my bra! win win situation! haha).
This dress is perfect for summer. It's light and airy and super comfortable - great characteristics since I hate wearing uncomfortable clothing in the summer!!


separate pieces dress: c/o sugarlips apparel; split wedge shoes: urban outfitters; necklaces: vintage, forever21; pearl bracelet: DIY; rose ring: vintage

A derp picture of me for good measure. >___> Why am I embarrassing? haha.

I had fun taking these pictures with my friends. (: They're the coolest for helping me out.. or else I would've awkwardly stood in my yard with a tri-pod and self-timed the photos while neighbors drive by and give me even worse awkward stares than the ones they gave us when we took these together. (that's a really long sentence...)

Well, finals are coming up... *cries* Also, my physics boat race is tomorrow; hopefully my boat survives or else I will be taking a nice swim in the pool. Hope you all are enjoying your summer. If you're not out of school like I am, then I wish you best of luck on your finals! Summer break is almost here! ^__^

Take care!

  8. Your dress looks so cute and comfy! Hahaha your neighbors will get used to after some time, I remember getting really weird stares (sometimes REALLY LONG ones) but now my neighbors just walk by as if they didn't see anything when my friends take outfit photos for me outside my house, haha!
