Rewind











































Although I claim to be a regency romance novel enthusiast, I've never read any of Jane Austen's classics. I aim to rectify that blunder starting with Sense and Sensibility. I was like a squirrel in the past few weeks, slowly hoarding books in preparation for the rainy season, because there's nothing like curling up in bed next to your bolster with your leg hitched over it, your hands lovingly clutching a good book while you let the angry storm lash out outside the comforts of your room.

Somebody stop me from wearing too many colors too often. It was just by some fluke that I ended up wearing this dress (which was sandwiched between my other dresses in my tiny closet). If my closet wasn't made from wood, it would be bursting at its seams with all the products of my thrift escapades thrown in there. But I digress. Anyway, I realized how I have been neglecting some of my summer dresses all summer. It's a testament to my contrary nature that I chose to wear them now that the summer season has officially ended. Oh well...

You'll see more of these dresses - polka dotted, floral printed, laced - the whole girly shebang. And you'll see more photos of books - just in case you missed the part where I flaunted my literacy.

  22. haha there's nothing wrong with wearing lots of colours! I actually think you've pulled everything off really well. instead of having clashing, messy colours you manage to give it your own eclectic and adorable touch! :)
