Day 4/30: Polka DotDotDot

by - Wednesday, June 15, 2011

A big, huge, gigantic thanks to the lovely Ms. Elle for practically giving this blouse away for free. I've now satisfied my polka dots craving :) On second thought, I should just dedicate this post to her, because along with the blouse, she also gifted me the scarf ring and the top (that you can't really see, but prevents the blouse from being see-through). So, THANK YOU THANK YOU, ELLE!

necklaces: Merona; Etsy SewPetiteGal via giveaway (currently sold here)
top: Ann Taylor - gift from Elle (similar - short-sleeves)
sash: J.Crew (similar)
jeans: Express (similar)
scarf ring as ring: Talbots - gift from Elle (similar)
bag: Chanel
shoes: Ann Taylor (currently sold here)

  2. I'm liking the dots on the top...just enough for an interesting print but low key. Very nice of Elle! Is this top part of your 30 for 30? I don't remember seeing it included.

  10. You look so fit in your jeans! what's ur secret!?! and that chanel purse is just classic, fit so well with your outfit!

  11. Cee those jeans look HOT on you! I love your figure!

    Oooh that's the perfect size polka dots too, when they're too big they can be too "in your face"
    Elle is so sweet!

  12. Your picture makes me want to start another hunt tor jeans. Let me think when I bought jeans last? Tick..tock..tick..tock..over a year ago!! Did you have to have the legs trimmed?

    You look great, Cee. And that m/l flap, don't let me start rambling, I secretly want to kidnap it. It keeps haunting me everywhere!! I feel somewhat regret that I didn't buy one before the price hike..and now it is super duper expensive...sighhh.

  13. hi Cee! (sorry for not commenting lately, been so busy :()

    anyway, you look super chic! hot date? ;)

  14. wow would've never guessed these jeans are from express. looks great on you. love seeing items from other bloggers on one outfit.

  15. I love this outfit, but that sash-belt is my favorite piece!

  16. @Stylepint - Probably because I don't wear this pair all that often :D They're the perfect length with heels, but unsightly with flats, so I usually turn to skinny jeans with flats, haha.

    @Jarucha - Yup, the top is item #5. Crappy pictures didn't show the shirt well on my original list... it probably looked like a regular ol' black shirt.

    @SewPetiteGal - Necklace layering is new to me too! It's fun but hard to figure out when to stop... I suppose once my neck starts hurting from being weighed down so much, I'll know ;)

    @cryskay - Me too :) Cartier Trinity ring is seriously gorgeous, don't you think?

    @Kelly, @eek, @caroline - Thank you :)

    @Patty - There are lots of quilted bags around this season, and not just from Chanel. I've seen them at ASOS, Forever 21, etc. and the likes. Definitely check it out if you're interested!

    @purses and puppies - Hehehe, you're *almost* halfway through your challenge... I say it's ok to buy a lil something :)

    @Petite in the City - Lol, no I'm simply regular-tall with heels on... probably around 5'8"-5'9"?

    @simplyvonne - Tall heels! I'm probably hovering around 5'9" with these heels on ;)

    @Elaine A (TOBeautyReviews) - Thank you <3 And Elle deserves all the credit for her generosity!

    @Nelah, @AubreyOhDang! - Believe it or not, these jeans are old, as in probably 5+ years old! They actually were kind of loose on me when I first bought them (back then when I didn't have a clue about fit and still learning now), but I think over time they've shrank some and somehow molded to my body. It's remarkable. Long story short, nope I didn't hem the jeans. I used to wear it all the time with flats, but with the hem cuffed up lol. Quite unsightly... until I discovered they were the perfect length for heels!

    @Sunshine - Aww, no worries! I'm just happy that you stopped by :) Unfortunately no hot date... more like date with work :( I've been busy lately too.

    @Kish - It's unique, isn't it? One of my favorite sash/belts (and I've got a ton lol).

  17. I love the walking down the stairs shot. It's more candid and artsy and less posed (which I'm completely guilty of :).

  18. so sweet of Elle! :)

    lookin' good as usual, but would love to see this outfit w/ those hot pink heels you have!

    kimchi girl

  19. Wow I don't know what it is about this outfit, but I really really like it! You look great and the clothes flatter your body very well : )

  20. I feel like I've been away forever! And I don't even know why I haven't been around, because I've missed you and your fabulous outfits :)

    I love the blouse and jeans classy!!

  21. I love the subtle polka dots on this top! Wish I could the scarf ring a little clearer though, sounds pretty cool!
