Hey guys! I know this post is a little too long overdue, but let me still wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017! I haven't been active lately, and I have a lot of posts in mind to share with you but please bear with me and give me some time to settle down into my new job & what not. Life has been really hectic lately but I'm not complaining. In fact, it's a blessing to be able to keep busy while doing the things I love. I promise to share with you all soon, still owe you a 2016 year in review post! To kick things off, here's a post about my #carinnxootd from Zaful. I hope it inspires you and help you come up with new outfit ideas for the upcoming CNY!
Belted Off The Shoulder Striped Romper (Size S) | USD13.73
First up is this Off-the-shoulder Striped Romper which I love! The size is just perfect for my petite frame and the rubber part around the shoulders helps to keep the romper up. The romper actually comes with a rope belt but I thought the romper already looks good without the belt, so I omitted it. I love the blue & white striped combo, it just looks so summery and fun! The combo with a straw hat, black choker necklace and my fave white slip-ons simply ties the whole look together for a casual day out in the sun.
Striped 3/4 Sleeve Loose Fitting Blouse (Size S) | USD18.58
Yeap, another striped piece cos I think this shirt is something that is quite trendy in Korea. This is one of the pieces that I received and felt like I wouldn't be able to work it as it looked so different on the model and on me >< However, I found a hack which is to tie the shirt around the waist and pair it with a pair of slimming jeans. I believe many would think of wearing this as a casual shirt, but I decided to up the game. Throw on a pair of heels, oversized earrings & a clutch and the outfit is instantly elevated to something suitable for a night out!
Strappy Floral Cami Maxi-Romper (Size S) | USD19.99
I posted this photo on Instagram awhile back and a lot of you girls told me that you love it! I do too, but sadly, this dress did not have as great quality as the other pieces that I received. :( It was a little too sheer and not to mention, loose. I couldn't wear it out because of the sizing and thinness of the material, but it does look great in photos though! Isn't the delicate floral design just perfect with my nude heels? I'd definitely be on the look out for more maxi romper like these in the future, they're elegant but at the same time, you don't have to worry about moving around since there's a built in shorts :)
Lace Cami Bra Tank Top (Size S) | USD9.05
Oops~ this is not meant to be a sexy photo haha. I've been stalking the #instafamous girls and realised that most of them own a pair of aesthetically pleasing lace bralettes, so I knew I gotta have it as well! While this white lace bralette is really strappy, it is still easy to pair with any sheer outfits for a hint of sexiness ;) The material is sooo soft too!
Bar Layered Wrap Necklace | USD2.87
I got 2 accessories from this recent haul which is the bralette and this rope choker. This is your regular 90's inspired choker but with a twist. The gold bar thingies at the end really add a touch of elegance to the necklace and you can tie it in various ways to match your outfit! :D
Hope you ladies liked this post! Fyi, don't forget to check out my previous Sammydress post as the items that I got are mostly available in both sites! If I were to do a comparison, I would say that Sammydress items are more affordable (for the same design), but Zaful items definitely have better quality. So it's really up to your preference - just know that there's something for everybody out there :) Happy CNY in advance, share your CNY OOTDs with me cos I would love to see them! 💖
