Buddy the Elf, who?

This is a special holiday collaboration with Jodie’s Touch of Style, Sheela Writes, and newcomer Michael Durden. We have put together outfits centered around the one and only Old Saint Nick. Except for me, because I’m more of the sassy elf that never gets any work done. But always serving the looks. 💋

This is the last edition of a two-part collaboration with Jodie’s Touch of Style and Sheela Writes. We have put together outfits centered around jeans. Also, though unintentional, it is a collaboration amongst mothers and daughters ❤

The last of the series is to “dress up” and be fancy.

If you’ve followed my blog before, you’ll notice that we are short a woman this time.

Nancy is currently on sabbatical and wasn’t able to participate. However, Jodie managed to rope in her best friend, Stacy, and have her step in for our jeans collaboration.

Much love to Nancy and a warm welcome to Stacy! 🙂

Nancy is currently on sabbatical and wasn’t able to participate. If you read Monday’s post, you’d know that Stacy, Jodie’s best friend, joined us for the “fancy” portion of the collaboration. However, she was unable to make it for the “casual” part.

Much love and thanks to the both of them though! 🙂

Booties that were a gift from Momma Bear.

The character Alex Munday was one of the first Asian characters I had came across as a child. She was smart, beautiful, and badass.

It wasn’t until I watched Charlie’s Angels that I realized how little Asian characters there are in the entertainment industry. Usually we’re cast as the wise, old Asian man or as the uptight and/or nerdy Asian female. And while those types of characters are great, it becomes an issue when those are the only types of characters that represent my race and ethnicity.

Alex Munday is a great example of breaking out of those stereotypes and representing us as so much more than what has already been shown.

This is the last edition of a three-part collaboration with Jodie’s Touch of Style and Sheela Writes. The idea was to showcase various ways of dressing with capris. Also, though unintentional, it is a collaboration amongst mothers and daughters ❤️

The last of the series is to wear capris in a “fancy” or formal style.

Princesses Never Go Out of Style

SEMM7529SEMM7516

My mother, the blogger behind Sheela Writes, is part of the monthly collaboration called the Fab 40s. It celebrates women in their forties who don’t let age hinder their awesomeness and sense of style.

This month the theme is Fairytale Princess.

It seemed appropriate, with Beauty & the Beast being recently released. Something which I’ve waited to happen since the day I was born. This moth bloggers would put together an outfit inspired by their personal favorite Disney princess (if their muse is outside the realm of Disney, that’s totally ok too).

You’re probably wondering why I’m telling you about this. Well, it’s because I was the one to come up with the idea of channeling a Disney princess and decided to do it too!

Fun Fact: Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors.

Shoes from JustFab.

So my mother and I both got some Belle-esque dresses in honor of that theme. Because well, you know, I love Belle (as you can see in my previous posts: Belle and My Disney Moment and Another Princess Disney Moment).

Instead of going with a yellow gown (I think I look terrible in that color), I chose this really gorgeous blue dress as an interpretation of the very first outfit Belle wore when she still lived in that “provincial town.”

Belle is an independent and fiery bookworm whose beauty goes beyond her physical appearance. I had always loved her and the movie, but my appreciation for the film deepened as I got older. When I started watching movies set in a high school or centered around a teenager, I became exposed to the idea of outcasts and cliques and the pressure of fitting in. So watching a film with a heroine whose unafraid to be herself, despite others being transparently unkind, struck a chord with me as entered adolescence.
