Back to basics: Polka Dot Dress

It’s been a while since I’ve added posts to the “Back to Basics” category so here we are again with a new addition: Polka Dot Dresses


Here I paired it with a skinny belt to define the waist and black tights because it’s cold today in NY. The scarf is just an added flair.

For those of you who think you can’t wear one, you’re thinking too much into it. Polka dots (unlike stripes) look good on anyone because it’s a simple, small, subtle design that’s added to a plain piece.

The reason why this dress would be considered a basic is well, it’s a dress. It’s only one piece that you ladies can slip on and be out the door! It’s perfect for when you’re rushing in the morning or suffering from morning blues, or you’re just stuck on what outfit to wear.

The completed look: black pumps, black cardigan, statement earrings.
Makeup: basic black eyeliner, matte rose lipstick, brows filled, matte face.

I’m wearing this outfit at work. It’s a corporate office with a “business casual” dress code. However, business casual doesn’t mean sacrificing basic, yet fashionable pieces!

Where have I been?

So during my hiatus not too much has changed, but I did make some new major purchases and have new styles due to the fall season. Let’s see….

Well, I cut my own hair which I’ve been doing for over a year now. Now I have bangs!

This look was cut & styled by yours truly.
The glasses were purchased from Style Suzi’s online store.  These have become my favorite accessory ever since I got them in the mail (about 2 weeks ago).
I usually rock bangs during colder months because my face doesn’t get as oily due to the drier air so the look is more low maintenance.

Here’s my OOTD from yesterday.

I actually wore my hair down the entire day, this was taken at the end of the day where I usually just throw my hair up in a messy bun.
Still cute though, huh? ~.^
I paired this look with a hooded leather jacket and my favorite wedge sneakers (see below).

These sneakers came sometime towards the end of last month. They resemble the Isabel Marant wedge sneakers, and in my opinion they are pretty much the same, minus the price tag.

These can be paired with pretty much any outfit since black can be rocked with anything.
I wear them with skinny jeans, jeggings, leggings, and even the tights & shorts combo!
They’re super comfortable, you forget you’re even wearing heels (no joke.) These give me a good 2.5 inches extra 🙂

What’s new with you? I’d love to hear/see it – share below or on my Facebook page!

Long hiatus!

Hi everyone, I’m back!

I know I’ve been gone for quite some time now from the blogging scene. That’s because I started graduate school and have been swamped balancing that and a full time job. In my miniscule free time slots, I’ve been posting quick updates on my Facebook page and have become a super frequent Tweeter!

I definitely recommend following me on one of those (or better yet, both) as I still manage to get out those quick tips/tricks and you can also stay up to date with me in real time!

I have a bunch of things that are being edited or still waiting to be filmed/edited like:
-Specific product reviews (Filmed. Currently being edited)
-Favorite drugstore products (To be filmed.)
-Everyday face routine (Filmed. Currently being edited)
-Halloween makeup (To be filmed.)
-Eyeliner 101 (Filmed. Being edited.)
-Regretful purchases (To be filmed.)

These are all videos so I can revive my Youtube page once again. In the meantime, check out my latest video “Lazy nails“!
