Vintage Earrings from my mom's teenage years!



Floral Dress: Apple and Eve
Green Pump Wedges: SM Parisian Plus
Red Leatherette Clutch and Earrings: Borrowed from Mom :)
Thin Red Belt: Greenhills Tiangge

I wore this outfit to a friend's birthday bash at the new Gloria Maris restaurant. (The visual feast awaits you here.) Chinese usually wear red to celebrate birthdays, but since the celebrant isn't quite traditional, I decided to just allude to custom by adding touches of red in my belt, my earrings and my clutch.  I wanted to be a little dressy but still casual so I decided to go with the dress.

I didn't even know before then that Apple and Eve carried sizes up to 2XL. I was so surprised to find this casual floral dress on their rack, all lovely, feminine,seemingly tailor-fitted and on sale!  Don't you love great finds at even better prices? So that's another place to look for nice outfits if you're on the curvier side. :)

PS: My indoor photos are often a little blurred or slightly pixelated/noisy. :( How can I prevent that? What settings should I be using? I use a Canon G12.

Hugs,
Belated Bloomer

  1. While these pictures may be blurry, your beauty is crystal-clear. Very nice dress along with some nice wedge pumps. The handbag is stylish along with the belt.
