Wearing this vintage head peice reminds me of what and whom I love

Friday, July 8, 2011






What I wore today: 
Vintage cashmere red cape (find similar item here)
Pink Rogue lace dress (find similar item here)
Mollini shoes (find similar shoes here)
Mooreaseal vintage head piece  (find it here or here)

Hi everyone! I've been reading everyone's comments and they are so lovely! You guys seem to have liked my "cute eggplant" look. Thank you. And you have all given me some great ideas on what to do on rainy days! 
 Today I'm wearing my new head piece I bought from Esty, I was so excited to get it in the mail! I found it on the Gary Pepper Vintage blog and she wore it so beautifully I couldn't resist. Absolute impulse buy! I hope you guys like how I've worn it. 

So, I know I write alot about shopping and fashion but I guess its what I know, live and breathe. If I don't write about what I love, you guys will be have been bored a long time ago, because I don't have passion for anything else. It's like this saying I recently stumbled upon..."I'd rather be a failure in something that I love than a success in something that I hate" (George Burns).

Its such a powerful quote it got me thinking. I love shopping and fashion, and so many other things, and through my blog I get to express it. Even if no-one reads my blog, at least I have enjoyed the journey thus far and it gives me pure happiness. I'd rather fail in doing this than being successful in something I hate (I cannot name it here because I don't want certain co-workers getting ideas, haha).
 Tell me, everyone, if you have read the quote above, and if you have thought about your passions in life? What are they? I would love to know.

.....And speaking of shopping, I saw Atlantic-Pacific's blog and found this absolutely darling stripe dress (pictured below), and I want it! I found the exact one here!

:D I love the headpiece. I think I would've styled it a bit differently though. Since it makes such a statement,I probably would've wore a long dress in a mute color and some bold accessories. :)

Wow, that quote is powerful. It can be heartbreaking to fail in your passion, but I find that it's just a total waste to do great in something you despise. It is kind of like my choice in my senior high school when I had to decide my major. I decided to pursue music education because I knew it was something I felt a calling for, while my parents were begging me to do something in the medical field (such a stereotypical Asian thing), even though I hate looking at so much blood. Thankfully, my parents now understand that I am still able to succeed even with music, and man, I am so ready for the obstacles I am going to face because it will be a test of my passion. :)

Oh, and I LOVE that headpiece on you. For some reason, I don't think I can pull off such things.

I love the quote. At one point, I thought of shutting down my blog but realized eventually, it's like shutting down a part of me that really makes me happy!

I have a very similar lace dress!

Titine and totoche said...

Hi! First, I really like the headpiece!
About the quote, I agree, I love fashion, and my blog (even if no one reads it) is a way to share that passion.

Hope you had a nice weekend!!

Bye :)

You look gorgeous Nat, I love this whole ensemble!!!

You look uber ethereal and super girly. ♥

How can you wear so little now when it's so cold. I wear 4 layers out and still feel like a frozen dumpling. :(
