Inspiration for the New Year

Though I know that some of you are crazily doing your last minute shopping (as I will be) these last few days, don’t forget to have fun with it! Instead of buying something you “kinda” like, make the extra effort to find something you really like – it helps to make an inspiration board online on various sites such as Quirkychic’s favourite Polyvore before you go out, so you know what to look out for, cutting down on both your browsing time + $$ spent. Of course, do EXPERIMENT! with looks you’ve been aching to pull off. A confident, happy you paints the perfect picture of the young, successful person that you are.

Here’s my inspiration board for shopping this chinese new year – shades of orange + red, opi nail colours, ruffles! and rabbit-themed accessories :) I also dyed my hair deep red to match the occasion.

It’s important to not only feel good in your new clothes, but also look good in them. Here are some tips while you’re rushing in and out of the dressing room:

  1. stand perfectly straight & slowly squat down. are your curves still lovingly flattered? or are they horribly emphasized in ugly ways?
  2. now stand profile and if you’re not wearing heels (but plan to for your visiting), stand on tiptoe and note how well or how badly your butt is accentuated
  3. also note if panty lines/bra lines are visible and take care to wear the appropriate ones during your visiting
  4. look straight at the mirror and bend down as if you’re bending over a table to get more food. Is your cleavage overly exposed?

Yup! So those are my tips for the new year! Happy visiting :)
