Lust List: Fine Jewelry

Which girl doesn’t like jewelry? Adding jewelries into your ensemble can be the finishing touch to your look. It also provides a touch of sophistication for a glam event or evening date. With jewelry though, less is more. I personally do not like to overload on jewelry. One or two pieces are enough. Hence, I always make it a point to choose jewelries that can make a statement in and of itself, or those that provide subtle but significant accents to my look.

On the other hand, there are also classic pieces that should never go missing in your jewelry box, such as pearl stud earrings. I think every girl has at least one pair in their jewelry collection (I know I do!).

Whatever your taste for jewelry might be, diamonds and pearls are always going to be on that list. I've been longing to get pieces from JR Dunn, Hearts on Fire, and Ross Simons for a long time now. But even though pieces from these brands and retailers are a bit higher than what most of us normally shell out for our jewelry collection, these are timeless and classic pieces that will last us a lifetime! Hence, they are worth every penny spent. 

I particularly glanced upon the Mikimoto pearls section at JR Dunn's website and gushed over the timeless pearl pieces. Mikimoto is a famous jewelry designer and feature some of the best pearl jewelry designs. I also fell in love with diamond studs from Hearts on Fire, which are brilliant and attractive. It is all about classic and elegant simplicity. These are qualities I look for when investing in fine jewelry. 

Check out below to see which items made it to my wishlist:

Do you like to wear jewelries? If yes, do you like adding classic or modern pieces in your collection?

I used to stick to my favorite colors when picking out an outfit but the old times are gone. I like to challenge myself these days with vibrant colors or hues that are not normally prevalent in my closet. Here is one outfit that I came up with recently.

Mustard has been an all time favorite of mine. But when I used to wear this color, I would pair it with something neutral such as black, white or cream. But I threw caution to the wind when I donned this ensemble. I felt like adding a multi-colored chiffon top to the look will make it look vibrant. It's a look that is somewhat out of my comfort zone. But I totally enjoyed rocking it!

What did you think of this look? Should I try it more often?

April Wishlist: Cocktail Dresses from

Any chance I have to dress up, I always exploit. Weddings, cocktail parties, or any other occasion that requires me to wear a sophisticated dress is a highly anticipated affair for me. It might sound shallow to some but I am sure that there are women out there reading this who agree (whether they admit it or not). I encountered a compelling quote from Kate Spade noting how "girls start dressing up at a young age and it never really stops." This can't be any more true for me. 

Thankfully, it is easier to find gush-worthy cocktail dresses with online fashion sites like offering a plethora of dresses for any occasion such as cocktail dresses or bridesmaid dresses. On top of modern design options, another reason to love this website for dress shopping is the affordability of their items. You can get these cocktail dresses for only half (even less) than what other fashion sites can offer!

But when you see the lovely dresses on stock, you will be willing to pay more given their quality and design.

Are you eyeing any of my picks? 

If not, feel free to head on over to or as you will no doubt find one that'll make you gush!

Bodycon Striped Dress from Persunmall

Persunmall is one of my favorite online shops because it offers affordable clothing options and they do not lack variety. New items are added daily on the website so there is always something new to check out. 

A bodycon dress is one of my favorite types of dresses to buy for myself. The material emphasizes shape. You don't need to have the perfect silhouette in order to look great in a bodycon dress. Rather, it helps to create accents to your body's natural shape. It is versatile enough for me to convert them into tops. I've done so plenty of times in the past and it is a great trick for expanding your wardrobe.

Hence, I was extremely excited when my order from Persunmall finally arrived in my doorstep. One of the dresses that I picked was a striped bodycon dress. It took me some time to browse around the site to find my pick... until I saw this dress. There was no question in my mind that I would love to have it!

When I received the order, I was ecstatic. The fabric is made from 100% cotton so it is comfortable and cool against the skin. It hugs the body just right to give it shape without being too snug. I also love how the classic black and white stripes can add versatility into the look. I can opt to wear it with flats or sandals for a casual look, but with high heels and blazer it will look work-appropriate (heck, it might even pass for an evening attire!).

I am so pleased with my order from Persunmall. I am excited to showcase how I styled the other pieces that I got from my recent order.
