    I'M BACK! 

    Hey girls, sorry for disappearing for a while.

    I’ve been stuck on a shift that starts 5AM every morning, and no one knows when it will end… so not to mention taking a photo of what to wear, but don’t even have time to change it out from my pjs.

    So let me fill everyone up with some photos I’ve taken throughout the summer/winter/fall…and so on so on…

    btw…hope everyone is doing great here!

    • This is an very comfortable outfit to the beach. I have a pair of blue shorts that I bought from ‘CLUB MONACO’ 2 years ago, and surprisingly they still fit me! For the top I have a no sleeves shirt from ‘FOREVER 21′ for $8.99 and it is so soft and thin, it’s perfect for the hot hot weather.

    • What I have here are the perfect casual wear to work. Inspired by some Korean TV drama I’ve been addicted to recently, most of the Korean girl dress like this, and I find the layers are very interesting and also it doesn’t look back at all. I used to think that long layer inside short layer can be a little bit odd but after trying on this look, I loved it.

      A Tee shirt and shorts? On a “fashion” blog?!!!??

    • Educated Tatya 1:04 am on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      And why not? I’m moving towards tees myself, and I like these looser ones with sleeves other than cap sleeves. And I need a pair of nice formal shorts. Anyone know where I can score some?

      Love shorts and tee’s myself! I did a lot of variations of shorts in different lengths with loose cotton tops or kurti’s in the summer and added leggings as fall set in. If it’s what I wore today, it’s what I’d post too!

      Ella, is your second outfit all in one colour family? I tried that with black and grey and liked it. Will have to collect more pieces to try out all blues or greens

    • Ella Shi 4:32 pm on October 19, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      To ET, I’ve always love the similar color outfit. The second outfit is kinda like grey/beige ish color combo. I’ve seen a lot of hollywood examples with Jeans, and those washed denim shirt and it does not look bad…I know it sounds weird…definetly try it out. Or you could do all blue color family, or I have some greens as well.

      To ET, formal shorts are so simple and easy to wear. My shorts in the first outfit is actually a formal shorts from Club Monaco. But it wears in both ways. Club Monaco is a good place to go to and also Suzy Sheir (not sure if this is how you spell it) and also I think Banana Republic has great formal shorts as well.

      Thanks Ella. Will definitely throw some hints in Dee’s direction about the shorts.

      ET, formal shorts are fabulous this season at The Express, (lovely wool/tweed ones with lace)- very tailored fit too! Also at H&M (linen blends) and MNG/Mango.

        Thanks Sheeba. I particularly love tweed.

      In summers, nothing beats a tee. But in winters like to dress up in girly skirts like this one http://ozel.co.in/pret-collection/clothing/tfnc/chantily-ruff-skirt-by-tfnc-london-2
      Prep it up with catseyeglasses, cute tee, red court shoes n im done:)

    I love cheap things! 

    On a nice Sunny Sunday, I went dress shopping with my dear fifi.
    Luckily found this cotton over-sized stripe shirt at H&M for only $6.99,  just for the price of it, I have to get it and make it work!

    So as my dear fifi suggested wear it with a belt, and you can pretty much match with leggings or skinny jeans. I personally like leggings better, because I don’t like too much stuff on my waist (if I am already wearing a belt on the shirt, then the button on my jeans would be too much stuff on my waist.)

    Here are some looks of it. The shirt comes in 3 colors, grey+white stripe (which the one I got), white+pink stripe, white+black stripe.

      CUTE!! Like I said, love the bright shoes for a bit of pop and I am SO getting the white one. :D

    yet another blazer day 

    It’s been so crazy for these days and also because it was the year end, there were so many things to catch on…so apologize for haven’t been able to post anything up here.

    I’ve been transfered to work on a different show now, with the start time 5am everyday, I literally lost the patience and time to dress up+take pictures every day…but then I realize…if I don’t take the time to dress up myself…then what do I really have time for…so I started my outfit picking the previous night, so the next morning I can just pick up and go. The weather hasn’t been great here in Toronto, but with a very warm parka I can wear anything inside.

    Starting with my closet cleaning 2 weeks ago. I was going through my clothes and find out I have way too many blazers…well I LOVE blazers…and every time when I see it’s on sale…then it is a MUST BUY…

    This is the full look, I’ve been in love with knee high boots lately, and it makes my legs looks straight and in some way, makes me look taller :)





    • Blazer: Urban Outfitters.
      It is actually not a regular blazer, it is made of silk…(but oddly you can’t really tell when you just looking at it), because it is not the regular material, so it is very soft and casually shaped. It doesn’t have to be uncomfortable to wear a blazer. That’s why I love this one, it has the blazer look, but a very much a silk top feeling.
    • Tank Top: Urban Outfitters.
      I know I know I can’t resist Urban Outfitters, almost 80% of my outfit comes from that store, and the other 20%, is from H&M. This is a double layered tank top, the inside layer is cotton material, and tight tank top so it fits perfect on me, it is also like a basic black layer you put on. The outside layer is a mix of color blue prints, and it is silk material so it is very comfortable. The outside layer is a little bit big, but looks very casual inside the blazer.
    • Boots: Urban Outfitters
      It is a pair of Knee Hight Suede grey boots. I’ve never had a pair of suede boots, but it turned out surprisingly comfortable and looks nice. It is a bit lose on the legs so sometimes it will fall, but that’s okay, it creates the natural look.
    • Leggings: TNA
      Well….Leggings are like my thing now…I can’t go anywhere without them…haha

      I like the color of your Top…Could I get a better Look at it?

    • Educated Tatya 4:54 am on February 8, 2010 Permalink | Reply

      I’m almost exclusively shopping for leggings and longer tops right now.

    Holiday Outfit 

    Unfortunetly I have to work this holiday season. So I am thinking that I can dress up to work.
    I picked out some outfit here but not sure what to wear. Or anyone have any nice ideas?
    Here are one of them I picked, and dunno if it will really do with a “dress up”

    Here is the shoulder part that I love….looks so princess-ish

    Last warm winter day 

    Here is a outfit I put together for the last warm day in winter.

    It is the leather jacket that I was debating whether I should keep it or not earlier…well, I kept it because it went on sale, and I got my money difference back. It is such a useful leather jacket because I almost wore it everytime and everywhere. This is just a simple grey leggings (i love leggings) with a pair of black knee hight boots. Navy blue shirt with the leather jacket.

    Earlier Picture (aug-20-2009) 

    I love the trend for this summer pants. It’s that kind of tight on the bottom, but lose at the top. I found one at Urban Outfitters on sale for $9.99, so no doubt I got it!!

    I guess it’s hard to match pants like this up since I don’t wear sleeveless tops, so I have to find some jacket to wear on top it, so here is a simple outfit I put together.

    A white short sleeve t-shirt with a denim jacket, and the grey pants with wedges makes me look taller. With my knock off Chanel bag, it doesn’t look too much, but at the same time, it looks classy.

    • Educated Tatya 7:34 am on December 17, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I’d wondered how to wear these pants. They look pretty good on you. Could be cause you’re fearless.

    • ella renee 8:33 pm on December 19, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I always liked it, I used to have a black one, and my friend liked it so she took it from me. I can’t find a black one, so ended up buying a grey one. I have a bigger hip so I thought this would cover that…hehe

    Cardigan Season 

    It is hard to wear clothes for this season because everything I wear underneath has to fit in the coat, and I don’t want it to look like a too puffy coat, so really, layers are important. It has to be right, and it can not be much.

    The grey cardigan/sweater is from H&M, it is a very simple and easy sweater and has no buttons, no zippers, just like a rug, very slight and fit.

    With a black pair of skinny jeans, I can just wear a pair of any boots to go with it.

    Holy!! It’s been a while and I have nothing…

    September and October were definitely two crazy months for me, because I was setting up a network show across Canada, and luckily I got to be in the promo across Canada. Very strange though but fancy enough for me, I can’t even believe it…

    Anyways, enough chitchat, I am sure everyone has already forgot about me, apology to everybody, just so you guys know, I come here all the time to see all your styles! And I just haven’t been able to wear anything impressive. Getting up everyday at 4am definitely doesn’t give me any motivation to dress up…

    Okay, here are some fashion infos and tips…

    I am a big sucker for flannels, and weirdly enough flannels are the big hit for this year’s fall fashion. I am debating which one should I get for myself because I just crazily fall in love with these American Eagle plaid shirts.

    Shirt #1

    Shirt #2

    Shirt #3

    Shirt #4

    Besides flannels, I am thinking to getting a knit vest for this winter, it feels like a trend but hasn’t really started yet. I got one from Hollister just for a test try, and it is still on the way shipping to me, so I will take a shot as soon as I get it, and to see how it will look on me.

    And this fall, this is my fall jacket, besides my leather jacket, I needed something casual so when I was doing sports event, it doesn’t feel so fancy.

    Winter Fashion 

    starts from here….

    seems like there is no fall in Canada anymore, it was 20 degrees yesterday and all of sudden dropped down to 8 degrees and I had to have scarf, cardigan, boots, and jackets on.

    The grey cardigan is from FCUK and it is very useful, you can wear it in the summer, and in the winter. The graffiti jeans is from Zara, and it is a very soft cotton material so I am not sure if it is good for winter. Slightly thin though.

    Boots as usual from UGG.

    Scarf is from Louis Vuitton. It’s a gift from my mom.

      You pull off cardigans so well. The few times I’ve tried them, I look like a scarecrow.

    • Ella Renee 3:49 am on October 2, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      This cardigan is actually an oversized one, so it won’t look too serious on me.
      Because I have a slightly chubby body so I can’t wear anything that’s too tight on me tha shows my shape. You can try those Zara cardigans, they are perfect for you and they are not too long and not too overwelmed, I am sure you will look good in it.
