Originally I didn’t like stripes very much. I would constantly read in magazines that horizontal stripes makes people look fat etc., and I didn’t really enjoy that. However, I think after a long time, stripes are somewhat pretty, but only if done in the right way. For example, gold and white, black and white, and gray and white are amazing combinations. I think blue and white is nice if one likes nautical looks.
Polka dots reminds me of being a child when wearing polka dotted dresses were normal. I personally cannot pull off any polka dot clothing but from far away the dress looks completely different. I have to say, colorful polka dots do add some happiness to my daily life, and I think I have fallen in love with those cups (if only).
Sea glass necklaces has always been so soothing to look at. These were some that I found through Etsy and just wanted to share with anyone. I personally do not own any, but given that I’ve tried look for sea glass without much success, it makes these jewelry one of a kind.
I’ve fallen in love with color block clothing, I actually own a few and didn’t realize how much I liked them. My wardrobe is pretty dark in colors and mostly solids because I enjoy accessorizing. Thus let me introduce you to the color block. Color block still gives the sense of solid colors and easy to accessorize items while creating a new effect. I still stick with the dark color blocks of black vs gray and gray vs white, but I have to say I have grown to like color block fashion lately and see them in every day objects.
I’ve recently been in love with bows, especially bow hairbands. I know it’s a kiddish item, but I feel that given the right color and texture, the bow can also be shown as classic and stylish. I used to wear bows with my skirts on the side. It has always been a cute accessory and I think no one is ever too old if bows are worn correctly.

Lace lace lace…so beautiful and intricate. I barely own any pieces of lace myself, but I love how with lace, there never seems to be the same no matter what. It keeps a sense of individualism and self while maintaining a feminine side. Hopefully one day I will own a pair of lace shoes that I have been craving after for awhile.
