Pre-Valentine Post

Written by tammie900 on February 13, 2011

Valentine: a sweetheart chosen to receive a greeting on Saint Valentine's Day; "will you be my valentine?"



Tomorrow's valentine day! I already have an outfit set for tomorrow so make sure you come back to check it out!



(Forever 21 frilly chiffon cardigan, unbranded black lace top, Zara baggy jeans, Topshop wisteria chiffon wedges, Longchamp bag)



Since my boyfriend is halfway around the world, I'm going to spend the afternoon with my (single) friends in a cafe. It's the most charming little place ever and I'll make sure to take some pictures to show you guys tomorrow!
What's everyone doing for valentine's?
Ciao,
Tammie.

Over Exposure Pictures Are Terrible In a Good Way.

Written by tammie900 on February 12, 2011

Over Exposured Photographs: when there is too much light getting to the light sensor of the film. The results of over exposure is a photograph looking very pale and washed out.

Well they're terrible because your photograph is pretty much white, with faint outlines of the object in the shot. They're terrible because they make your skin look washed out. They're terrible because the sky then blends in with your face.

They're good because when you edit their contrast you may be able to come up with decent pictures. They're good because they just give an artsy outline of everything in your pictures. They're good because you can't see the imperfections on your face, and anywhere else. They're good because they bring out the color of your hair.

This is why you should always check the settings on your camera after taking the first shot, especially if your photographer is a 9 year old little girl.

Here's a couple decent ones that show off the pieces, if you guys want to take a look in more detail.

I've been wanting these for the longest time, and they were on sale the other day so naturally I got them.

The Little Blue Dress

Written by tammie900 on February 11, 2011

Fitting: adjustment: making or becoming suitable; adjusting to circumstances


I found this super adorable blue chiffon dress during break in Topshop. I thought it would be great for MUN which is coming up next week (so look out for some more outfit posts). I love it, the feel of the fabric, the fitting. Also there has been a trend of back zipper dresses - my mom bought a couple from Topshop with back zippers so look out for those posts too! I'm really inspired by this dress, there's a lot that I could do with it. Hopefully I'll come up with something creative for MUN.

I love this dress just because of the high neckline. It gives it that formal look, you know? I need more dresses like these.

 


Ciao,
Tammie.

Love My Tee

Written by tammie900 on February 9, 2011

Shirt: a garment worn on the upper half of the body



Put this outfit on in 5 minutes because I was late this morning for school. This shirt is becoming one of my favorite. It's so comfortable! I didn't actually wear those heels to school (they require special skills to walk in since they're freaking tall) but I put them on for the purpose of the outfit post.


(Zara shirt, Zara harems, Aldo heels)




The tallest freakin' heels ever. Almost impossible to walk in.

Ciao,

Who Says Baggy Jeans Are Only For Boys?

Written by tammie900 on February 8, 2011

Baggy: not fitting closely; hanging loosely; "baggy trousers"; "a loose-fitting blouse is comfortable in hot weather"
"Are you sure those pants are your size?"
"Why are you wearing pants that are too big for you?"

Haha, some of the reactions I got for wearing these jeans but they were made to look baggy. They're exactly my size, but the crotch/back seam is lower. I've always wanted to get myself a pair of boyfriend jeans or baggy jeans but could never find one that was the perfect size until now! Thank you Zara for creating amazing pants (that fit).




(Topshop petite scallop vest top, Zara baggy jeans, Zara heels)






Perfect amount of sagging on the back, so it doesn't look too baggy.



I love travelling to new places, I just don't like the process of it. Do you know how tiring it is to travel? Airport transits, airplane food, everything is such a big hassle and it tires me out so much (or maybe since I do it so many times in a year it's not even funny) but seriously. I wish there was a one-way plane ride to every country in the world so we don't have to transit. You know what else I hate? That you need to pretty much strip naked, take out all the contents in your bag, put all of them in separate freaking containers because who knows I might have explosive mentos or something just to get on the freaking plane, put all my watery liquids in a plastic bag that can't weigh more than a feather. THANK YOU TERRORISTS, I hope you're happy now that you've revolutionized airport security. I guess better safe than sorry huh? Sorry for this rant but I just flew back to Hanoi yesterday and realized how much I hated it (being in airports all day). I can't imagine how my friends deal with it when they go back to their home countries halfway around the world. I usually only take half a day to get to Jakarta. Imagine people going to the USA or Europe.


Love how there's a giant suspending digital clock after every meter or so.

Who knew my balcony provides the most beautiful natural lighting for pictures (that actually sounds so obvious it's dumb),

Lazy Blogger Award...

Written by tammie900 on February 7, 2011

Goes to me. So sorry for the lack of posts this past week since I was on holiday back in Jakarta, but now I'm back in Hanoi I'll definitely start posting more often!

Here are some hermes editorials just because I've been crushing on their gorgeous Kelly bags for awhile now.

I want one so bad! I can only afford a cheap, made in China knockoff although what good does that do to anyone's ego? Or maybe a secondhand Kelly? Hmm.

Just a quick update,
Tammie.

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Written by tammie900 on February 3, 2011

Cheongsam: The cheongsam is a body-hugging (modified in Shanghai) one-piece Chinese dress for women; the male version is the changshan. It is known in Mandarin Chinese as the qípáo Wade-Giles ch'i-p'ao, and is also known in English as a mandarin gown.


Starting off the lunar new year with a dash of red cheongsam and casual, baggy jeans. Didn't want to overdress, but didn't want to underdress either. How is everyone's day going? Mine consisted of going around to meet the family and getting lucky money - angpao. A lot of what I got will go right into my savings which is a surprise since I always spend most of the money I get from Chinese New Year but this year I really do have to start saving up some money.



(Traditional Silk Cheongsam shirt, Zara baggy jeans, Louis Vuitton rose bag, Zara blue heels)




I haven't worn one of these since a long time ago and I forgot how beautiful the details can be. The gold against the yellow and the silk... Well a huge reminder of my Chinese heritage. 






I love these blue suede heels I got from Zara. They're a really comfortable height - one of my shortest heels - so I can wear them for a long period of time without feeling like my toes are going to fall off.

So I wish everyone a wonderful year full of good health and fortune (SO CHINESE RIGHT NOW), GONG XI FA CAI EVERYONE!


Ciao,
Tammie.

Leather Dresses and Red Hair.

Written by tammie900 on February 2, 2011

Mahogany: reddish brown: a shade of brown with a tinge of red.


Technically, the hair bit should be mahogany because yes, I dyed it mahogany. I also wore a two-tone leather dress for my "late birthday" dinner yesterday.



(Zara black cardigan, Zara two-tone leather dress, unbranded wedges)



Dressed in all black but tomorrow will be the first day of chinese new year, so please do expect some colors!

Love,
Tammie.
