Birthday Style

chicwish-wine-color-cheer-flare-sleeves-top

Oh man is that how fast time flies??  I can’t believe I’ll be happily ringing in my 51st tomorrow.  For me, every birthday comes with a thousand mixed feelings but the feeling of gratitude to the Almighty for these gifts will surely reign supreme among all of them.

  • Thankful for the gift of a loving family, which includes a very talented photographer, and a close circle of friends;
  • Thankful for the gift of good health (skin, hair and teeth intact included :-) )
  • Thankful for the gift of being 50 plus (and not have to lie about it – wink wink!) and still blogging with all of you wonderful people after almost 4 years;
  • Thankful for the gift of finding my own sense of style without breaking my bank and last but not the least;
  • Thankful for the gift of pulling off hard-to-pull-off outfits like these flirty but so versatile top and fetching pink faux leather skirt (love how I am wearing Pantone’s color of the year in rose quartz too!) from my loves at CHICWISH.

I am not the one to prepare any birthday wish list.  But this year, I promised and bought myself a new less-red-than-Ruby-Woo MAC lipstick color (D for Danger) and debuting it via this post. ♥

Chicwish :: Retro Style

chicwish-black-roll-neck-crop-sweater-with-glove-sleeves

If there’s one style era that I won’t ever get tired of recreating – it’s definitely the 70s look.   There’s something about that era that excites and squeezes out the best of my creative juices enough to channel my favorite Ali MacGraw character in the unforgettable movie of all time “Love Story.”

And this glam but cozy cropped turtleneck sweater with the most interesting glove sleeves when paired with this super adorable with wool-like texture bud/A-line skirt (fully lined with animal-printed satin material, how cool is that?) from CHICWISH just about let me fulfill another one of my fantasy 70s looks!   I’ve heard and seen so much of CHICWISH around blog land, and honestly, I thought they only sold the prettiest midi skirts like this.  That’s why I am so elated to find out that their huge collection has the most amazing and quality indie and retro outfits for every style and size.

I am by the way sending warm California hugs and kisses to those who are severely affected by Blizzard Jonas last weekend.   Stay safe and all bundled up everyone! ♥
