My Style

You are Who You Are: Express Yourself!

By  | 

For quite some time now I have been drooling over maxi skirts or anything bohemian inspired ensemble. In my opinion, maxi skirts that are made of mesh, almost see through like material or asymmetrical gives that “mysterious” yet “feminine” feel to the person wearing it. Obviously, yours truly have the maxi skirt lined up for my next outfit post —and finally, that day is today! Whoo-hoo.

The bohemian look is not easy to pull off, as it is not something that I always see with Asian women. Why? Because most boho / maxi skirts are really long and most Asians I know are short if not pocket size. There are few who are born with the “model-genes” and have been blessed with 5″8 and up in height. Sadly, as much as I love my “cute pocket size” height it doesn’t do me any good when it comes certain outfits like these. I bet you’re already wondering, what really is my height. Naturally I would blurt out 5″3 [but that’s because I am always wearing heels that no one would really notice the difference], but I am —uhm— 5″1 -_-” Yep. I’m a shorty. It may sound cute for a while but when you turn 25 and your boyf is waaaay taller than you, then that’s a whole different issue.

Anyway, I was wondering what should I wear my maxi skirt with. After all I need to find a way not to drag the skirt all over the floor. That should be fine if I am attending an awards night or if I will be walking the red carpet, but I’m not. So I have decided to go for my colorful butterfly print top and my platform beige boots… except how do I accessorize? Bangles would be fine as its neutral and wouldn’t clash with my printed top but what about the necklace and earrings? I chose to wear my beaded choker necklace in plain pearly white shade and silver toned, shell shaped earrings. Although it looks a bit dull — thankfully, I have received the Peacock Feather Ear Cuff just in time. You can already imagine my delight. It adds the perfect earthly feel to my ensemble.

FTC: The Feather Ear Cuff were sent to me for review purposes by Sasha of Red winged Blackbirds. I’m not affiliated with Etsy or Red winged Blackbirds and as always, this is 100% my honest opinion. Also, I’m not getting paid for this video or review.

The feather ear cuff is well made and had been sealed nicely in a ziplock bag that secures the feather inside just in case that the envelope gets wet on its way. The seller also included a small note of her shop url so I don’t have to wonder or scour my inbox trying to find her store. I love quality sellers who also think of their buyers opinion and not just for commission. So if y’all want your very own pair check out Sasha’s shop. Not only is the product of great quality, the seller is very professional too (plus her shop offers really affordable accessories!). The ear cuff have a wide range of design and retails between $12.50 – $18.50 what a snag!

Check out my outfit of the day, I really feel like I’m in a “bliss”!

I am definitely loving this ensemble. Most probably if I am attending any formal or semi-formal gathering this would be one of my top picks. What do you think of this look? Love the maxi skirt? Do you fancy the lovely ear cuff? let me know what you think! xox
