Blog about it

Thursday, February 10, 2011
I actually wore this a couple months ago but just for a few hours and didn't take a picture of it so, really, it's like I never wore it. If you don't blog about it, it never happened. Oh, and this is for Bree, who said she missed my sequin flats. This is just for you, stranger.

Today is my mom's birthday. She is 50. She's so old. Everybody always asks if she's my older sister...and she loves it. So just imagine me a few inches taller with a short bob and a few wrinkles. 엄마, 생일축하해!!!!! 너무너무 사랑해!!!!!!! Please wish her a happy birthday even though she reads this like once a year and can't speak English!!!!! I'm pretty sure all she (and my dad) wants is a grandchild...or a Korean hair-dye that they only sell in L.A...whichever comes first.

Hey procrastinators, last day to enter the shoe clips giveaway! You could even enter to win it for someone else. It would be a great way to tell a friend their shoes are plain and boring. You know who I'm talking about.

  17. Totally impressed with your Korean birthday wishes...I hope your mom reads this post! And I think all Korean moms want grandbabies...your mom is so young! My poor mom is 15 years older than that and still no grandmother status. I'm a bad daughter, I know. :P Happy Birthday, Elaine's Umma!

  19. This outfit is so simple but looks so great! Those shimmering sequin schoes and the belt do an amazing job at adding some unexpected details to the flowing, monochromatic silhouette.

    Happy birthday to your mum!

  23. Aw, happy birthday to your Um-ma. 50 is really young. My ma would love to be 50 again. I like the clean lines of this outfit. Very sophisticated.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Elaine, 50 is young! I'm 66 and probably your oldest fan but still rocking the fashion and high heels. Wearing the purple heels today that I bought because of you. If you love fashion now, you'll still love it when you're 60. You look super cute in this outfit as always. Bet your Mom is proud of you.

  26. i feel cozier now for having seen this outfit. as someone who has a requirement that all outfits must be a) pretty and b) comfortable enough to nap in, i totally appreciate this and have a huge desire to have this same exact outfit for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  27. mind if i steal your idea of the closet inventory, i think its a fantastic way of seeing what you have. I tend to have a problem of using the same clothes over and over again, and not trying out more.

    btw, love your blog and your style!

  31. Did you cut your own bangs, or had them cut? They look really good! I've been considering cutting my bangs, any tips if you did do it yourself?

  34. You look so comfy and adorable! You've done a great job of working the proportions so it doesn't overwhelm your frame. And do I need say anything about how awesome those flats are?!

  45. I like the skirt, the second picture makes it look nice =)
    yay for sequin flats!
    I sorta translated your litle message, I did get weird things like "Mum, birthday! Love you very, very" and even though I didn't include your excalamation marks this is another thing I got "The mom, birthday to congratulate!!!!! Loves too,"
    Finally I got "Mom, happy birthday !!!!! I love you very very much"
    So... I guess that makes me a creep. Sorry =S
