Starting The New Year With A Bang!

Sunday, January 1, 2012

(Sweater Dress: F21 // Boots: Chloe Sevigny x OC // Clutch, Necklace, Beret & Ring: SM Accessories)

Hello, everyone! I've welcomed the new year with a "bangs" that is! And as mentioned two posts ago, I now have ombre hair! I decided to celebrate a new year with a new haircut and color since I was already bored with my previous hair. I kept tying it up on a bun because I didn't know how else to style it. I'm not 100% satisfied with my ombre hair though (I look more like a K-Pop Star rather than a Rockstar...hahahaha!). I will have to go back to the salon another time (to have the top darkened a bit, have the blonde portion reduced and have the orange tones at the ends removed) but as of now, I'm trying to enjoy my new hair. Let's see if blondes really do have more fun! 

Now on to the outfit...

I've been enjoying the "sweater-weather" in Manila lately. I've stocked up on a lot of lightweight knit pieces that's wearable in the day but could still keep me warm enough when it gets a bit chilly at night. This knit dress from Forever21 is such a great buy. I love the color combination of navy blue and gray, accented by gold threads. I decided to play up the gold accents of the dress with gold pieces of jewelry such as this beautiful jewel-encrusted cross necklace from SM Accessories. I'm not really a fan of gems on jewelry but this necklace had a bit of Russian opulence which spoke to me. And oh, how fun is this fur beret? I keep on stroking it everytime I have it on.

P.S. I still have a lot of backlog outfit posts with the old hair so expect to see those mixed up with blonde-hair-outfit-posts. I'll say it again...Happy New Year, everyone! I'm excited for this year!

  16. nice sweater, you look good with the bangs! but isn´t it too hot to wear a sweater like that in the Philippines. It´s not that cold. I have a friend from norway who´s vacationing in the Philippines this January, and she said its very warm days. she could barely wear jeans and sweater.

  17. @ Airene: It's colder now at night. I'm already used to the weather here so I can stand wearing a sweater during the day, even if it's warm . Your friend from Norway is probably used to a colder weather so it's understandable that she's probably suffering from the Manila heat. :)

  18. hi Kookie! I love your hair! Naks you look even more prettier! :)

  19. the new hair is georgous and i'm sure after your 2nd trip to the salon, it will be even more beautiful.

    yes, i'm definitely loving sweater weather..but it's sad if the rain doesn't stop because i know somewhere out there, people are getting flooded. :(
