12:10 am - The power of spending

Expensive purchases make me happy. I was shopping at the Shops at Don Mills (high-end outdoor shopping centre at Don Mills/Lawrence) with my friend, and decided to check out BCBGMaxazria because I think the clothes there are so beautiful, albeit expensive. I spotted a dress I quite liked, which was incidentally 50% off, and decided to try it out just for fun, since even with the discount, it was $169. To my surprise, I realized it looked really good on  me when I tried it (bonus that I could fit into a size smaller than I normally do =P), and suddenly I was very tempted to buy it. Therefore, with much urging from my friend and the saleswoman, I decided to purchase this expensive LBD because 1) it looked really good; 2) it was clasically beautiful and 3) I had  always been wanting something from their store. Plus the formality of the dress meant that it could be worn on more than one occasion; I felt like Meg in Little Women, when she bought her first silk (which was NOT made or trimmed), because she believed that this silk could be worn with any fancy party occasion. And yes, my dress is also made of silk =)

Here's a link to the dress:

Aww thanks! X3 I'm not quite sure how yet to accessorize, but I think because it's so simple it shouldn't be that hard to find something.

Being a guy isn't so bad, at least you don't have to constantly waste time deciding what to wear!

aquamarine jewelry and accessories would be gorgeous with that dress. I find asian skin tones look nice with aquamarine. I would also say yellow, or ruby red. Just think of the colours as a palette: white and black are so neutral, but very "classic". You need something light but vibrant! lol or gold, or silver. Or pearls for that classic touch. The ideas are endless *_*;;

seriously being a guy SUCKS for clothing. I wish i had such difficulties deciding what to where. That would imply i have OPTIONS.
