Labor Of Love :: Floral & Shredded

Happy Labor Day Weekend, my friend! Today marks the 10th month of this blog, not quite a year, but a pretty exciting ride so far! Before I get into my usual musings, I want to thank all of you for your friendship and support!

Why did you start blogging? That seems to be the standard questions asked whenever I told someone I am a fashion blogger. The answer is a no-brainer: I love fashion, this blog is my “showroom”, not all about looking pretty, but more about meeting friends like you, expressing myself and exchange ideas. As long as I am able, I will continue to write about all things I care: fashion, beauty, fitness, places, people, friendship, and of course, family.

It is not going to be a cake walk, I know. In fact, this blog is the most labor-intensive project I ever took on. Either this or the CPA prep, which lasted only three months. Sometimes, I got a little antsy for there are so much to do and so little time, never did I double if I was doing the right thing.

On this day of celebrating the hard-working, I thought it would be good to try something new — a strapless top with a back slit, all that in a cheerful floral print. 😀 This top is another one of my Zara “experimental” purchase, I am glad it worked out, can’t wait to wear it again during winter break, somewhere on the beach, with a pair of cool shorts, or long skirt … ahh, why does summer have to be over?!5S6A1213 5S6A1254 5S6A1276 5S6A1205 5S6A1442 5S6A1382

Thank you very much for reading, and again, thank you for all the love! See you in my next post!

    我总觉得Zara 的衣服很上镜:) 我上次忘记问你,Burberry 的PVC包包你觉得如何呢,价格似乎在一千上下。还是你觉得如果只能投资一个上班包,应该更好些?谢谢你。

      It is true! Zara clothing looks better on camera. 🙂 The quality depends.

      I’ve yet to own a Burberry bag, so I couldn’t really comment on the quality. Style-wise, I think if you want just one work tote, a simple design with durable material, big volume (i.e. can hold your laptop), good frame support (because you will load it with stuff), and comfortable handles and a wide enough shoulder strap should be your top criteria. Aesthetically, plain with minimal hardware probably will be your best bet. I am sure you can find a designer bag fits those criteria within the price range.
