122. (Dim sum)





Hi everyone! I think I've been on a roll in terms of updating lately. I have yet another outfit post for you guys.
First of all, I am loving the ASOS fur coat. Every time I wear it I feel like I exude such confidence I never have thought before I had. I feel so warm and good wearing it, haha! Also... someone asked me on formspring if I wore parkas. The answer is yes, I do wear parkas and I do wear wool trench coats/pea coats but I don't wear those really puffy Michelin Man style jackets because I apparently (as told by my mother and boyfriend) I look weird and look like a giant marshmallow (which I find quite funny than offensive).

My dog is creepin' on me again haha.







Anyhow, I was excited to get the camel ASOS curve jersey peter pan collar dress. I do have a few notes to make about it.
One, it's kinda longer than I'd like it to be on my 5'5" frame. I like my dresses to hit mid-thigh (yeah, I'm not trying to be modest haha) and it's kinda knee height on me, but that's okay. The fabric I found is REALLY stretchy and I am wearing a US 20 to be safe, but I'm positively certain it could fit perhaps 3-4 sizes bigger than me. Yes, I am serious. The waist is empire style and it's even kind of baggy for me. The arms are REALLY stretchy and yes, I do believe it could fit bigger. So if you plan to wear the dress and want a more snug fit, size down! I'm alright with it being slightly roomier, so no errors there. I adore this dress and I bought it in black too.










So anyway, about my day. I took my boyfriend out to dim sum because he's been telling me how much he wanted some. So here's some food porn for you.

Now I gotta go study. Which I probably won't until tonight. I probably am going to end up playing Little Big Planet.

  10. GAZEL OH MY GOD YOU GET CUTER ALL THE TIME. I just bought this dress and I'm pretty sure I'll be styling it very similar to this, hehe. Totes agreed on the length, as well. Do we just have the same taste in everything?

    Honestly though, you just look so perfect and polished, it's wonderful!

  11. This is a great look on you Love the necklace and the ring!The Peter Pan collar on your dress is very flattering on you!

  12. It looks great on you! I ordered this one and the black and kept the black one but sent this one back since it didn't look great on me.

    Oh, and a note on the length - I'm glad for it since I'm 5'8" and shorter would be obscene for me. You could see about getting it hemmed - jersey is pretty easy to hem, heck, you could just chop off the extra since jersey won't unravel (it will roll though, so you'd probably want to actually hem it).

  13. Love that dress and I actually think the length looks just right for this style. For some reason I just think it would be odd shorter (though I agree that I usually rock a shorter skirt. In fact I went a little toooo short this afternoon and had to keep checking it was far enough down in the back, lol)

  16. oooh! It's so great to see this dress "in person" or at least as "in person" as possible! hehe!
    I adore it on you and think it was an excellent puchase. The Peter Pan collar, which I'm pretty sure I remarked on before when you posted the shopping order pictures, is just delightful. And I adore the way you accessorized!

  19. Awww, I love that dress on you!! I think you look all that... and dim sum! Yea I am the Queen of Corny. But anyway, I like those Swiss polky dot tights, too. I always wanted to try some of those. Your fringe makes the outfit to me, somehow... I don't think it would be the same without it! Very cute and chic all at the same time.
