Rich and Furry Bags

Love the shape of this bag, very lady-like. Might not be too convenient when you're digging for stuff, but it looks cute.

The thick stripes make the bag unique.

So plush and furry, love it!

Dare to Wear Yellow

I've not worn yellow much until this year, when I went crazy and bought three yellow tops in a row. Yellow is super-flattering to skin with yellow undertones like mine. These are some cute outfits with just the right touch of yellow. The pics are from Taiwan and make me miss the warm weather we won't have until next Spring. Oh well, I can use the time to plan new ensembles for when I can wear skirts without tights again.

Chinese Celebrities' Candids

Even celebrities have to dress on their own sometimes. These actresses and singers look well put-together -- even if it's just for an everyday errand or the airport. I'm inspired by Ziyi's combination of leggings and skirt here, might try it sometime.

Real Fashion in Korea

I like these street fashion shots taken in Korea. Some girls are dressed in rather sporty, ungirly outfits, yet they've got these brilliant accessories on, making the outfit much less tomboyish.

The Beauty of a White Coat

I've seen a lot of white coats lately, wish I could carry it off but have a feeling it flatters someone more dainty than I am. Still, I could admire the clothes.

Wrapped and Ready

Korean brands like to add feminine details to their clothes, bows, pleats, shirring, sometimes all of the above in one piece. I'm not sure if most women won't look too dolled up and juvenile in these looks. My favorite is actually the red blouse from eBay, the auction has just ended, but there are lots of similar ones for sale at the seller's store.

Ribbon trousers

I wonder if I can't get the look by getting a ribbon on my own, and using it as a belt on pants I already have in my closet.

The Elegance of Neutrals

There is something about wearing beige, black, taupe, brown that brings out the wearer's inner style. The models' coloring really work with these combos here.

Belts are everywhere this year, the few women I've seen sporting the super-wide cinch belts have my admiration. Personally, I find sweaters with self-belts easier to wear.

All the cute finds are from

Pretty Toppers

I love the way these hats are worn here. My fav is the slouchy crochet hat.
