Sail Me to the Moon

Hello lovelies! Thank you so much for your support on my anniversary post - I got 52 comments! That is absolutely mind-blowing. As some of you may know, I've been suffering a nocturnal, near-vampire state these past few weeks. It seems to be the natural state of things when I'm on break from school. Even if I am studying and working, I just seem to come alive (and awake) when the sun sets. Don't worry - I don't glitter like some wannabes :D

It has been so long since I've put on a cute outfit! Now I've gotten pickier and only want to take nice photos in bright, bright sunlight. None of that indoors bathroom business xD So today I successfully stayed awake and hauled all my equipment (aka me, clothes, camera, mini tripod) out to the stairs and snapped some shots. Many people stared as they drove by. Whatever. I felt glamourous : )

This is the long-anticipated sailor dress! I love how simple it is, and how a few navy stripes can make a white dress nautical-inspired, and the big fat bow that doesn't like to lie flat. The material is quite thick cotton, so it's been wrinkling up a hot mess, but a few wrinkles isn't going to cramp my beach style. I finally broke out the big floppy sunhat from H&M too! I absolutely love the oversized feeling and they work much better for me than sunglasses do (they slide off my nose). My contacts are drying out as I speak. That's what you get for wearing glasses for 2 weeks straight and trying to live with little pieces of plastic in your eye.

The Dollywink purse - that's what I'm going to call it. I love it so much! When I first opened the box I thought that the colour was off but it's totally fine in bright lighting. It's super soft and the straps have good weight. I just wish it could hold more things inside. I'm definitely a huge throw bag kind of girl. Might as well just sport a backpack for all the crap I carry :D

All my self-timer pics were BLURRY. I had to sharpen then using Picnik (more user friendly than Photoshop sometimes), a program I was first acquainted with in high school from Facebook, as I recall. Thanks to Kristy, I now refound its wonders and quick photo-editing tricks. I left the framing uncropped because I am lazy and I like the way I flicker across the screen as you scroll down.

The beautiful coral necklace I won from Steph's DSK Jewelry Giveaway. I love it so much! The chain glitters so happily in the sun and the crystal is so unique and calls for summer dreaming. She also gave me a pair of cute green crystal earrings that I paired with an old Claire's set that matches the blue and white theme. I will post specifically about her lovely package in the next few days! Thank you so much, Stephanie! You are so talented and make such lovely jewelry (Yes, I attempted to model the necklace xD You'll see hahaha).

By the way I'm wearing my new Revlon PhotoReady Foundation in 04 Nude. It's a little light for me (omg I'm so tannnn T___T) but it doesn't show poorly in pictures. It makes my skin feel really soft and plump hehe. I spent so much time putting on makeup and curling my hair today because I was also taking pics for reviews. I will post FOTD pictures tomorrow! Can you believe I haven't worn any kind of makeup on my face for over a week now? Turns out just washing my face and not touching it with my dirty fingernails doesn't stop my acne. Must be hormonal D: Ack. Still using my St. Ives products - I am loving the Green Tea Scrub most.

Wearing:
Sailor bow dress, F21
White low heel pumps, Payless
Big floppy sunhat, H&M
Pink quilted bow shoulder purse, F21
Blue and clear jewel earrings, Claire's
Green crystal flower earrings, DSK Jewelry
Blue coral crystal necklace, DSK Jewelry
Mint Green Polish, Delia's

I love the vintage feel to this wash. It even makes the graininess okay xD
Happy Fourth of July! (almost)
 One of my faves :D I was running very very slowly hahaha
 
Details! My accessories like to hang out
The Dollywink purse! I love it so much :D

Beautiful DSK Jewelry! This coral necklace goes with anything and everything! Thank you Steph ♥ My camera doesn't quite do justice to how sparkly and pretty it is
 The green ones are from DSK Jewelry as well. They're cute and sparkly studs! My ear is flaming red because it doesn't like earrings after I don't put in any jewelry for a long time. Notice the blue jewels match the necklace
Modeling pictures in my FOTD post tomorrow ~
As promised from last time, I will curb your curiosity! Thank you to everyone who submitted questions!
1) What is your height? I am 5'3"! It's kind of interesting because since I've started following Petite bloggers and getting to know them better, I feel too tall to be in the club :D However, while growing up in very Caucasian towns, people always made fun of me for being short. I'm only an inch below national average - don't get your panties into a bunch! I remember one of my friends called me "Bonsai" and that ticked me off. Now I realize with high heels everyone's tall :D I like my height!
2) How long have you and your darling been together? :) Hehe aww. We have been together for ... lemme check, about 1 year and 7 months. I had to think because I don't count. I love being with my boyfriend and I don't want there to be an end or a timer counting away. In fact, I don't even know when our anniversary is. It's just somewhere towards the end of November. Makes planning dates a lot more flexible :D I used to sweat the small stuff and mark my calendar in past relationships, but I just realize that that never got me anywhere. I'd like to think that there was no day we met and there will be no day we have to say goodbye.
3) What is your favourite ice cream? Oooh this is so difficult to answer! I think it's Mint Chocolate Chip when I'm feeling like something not-too-sweet and Cookies & Creme when I'm craving me some sugar sugar. There is Green Tea ice cream that I miss too but I've only had it once at Sumo when I tried to help one of my friends woo the girl he is now engaged to. Oh those were the times!

If you asked a question and I'm blind and didn't see it, holler at me! If you are curious about anything else, keep asking :D

I hope everyone will have a relaxing Fourth of July weekend if you're from the States, and for all my other international subbies, find some fireworks and go crazy! Hahaha jk that would be dangerous. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Uhhh did I say I liked your last post the most? Can I change my mind about that?

Angie you look AMAZING! That first photo ~ when I saw it in my google reader I was like WHOA! Love everything about it. You always surprise me with your posts, and all these awesome looks you create. And underneath all the fashion stuff is a girl who will one day do miraculous medical stuff!

Ria July 2, 2010 at 6:32 PM   said...

Your bag is amazing!And the necklace is so sparkly!Love it! :)

Ping July 2, 2010 at 7:09 PM   said...

omg i saw that dress at forever and didn't even bother to look twice. you made that dress look amazing. your pics look really good too. hat is adorable...thumbs up!!

Nic Nic July 2, 2010 at 8:26 PM   said...

Very cute outfit, reminds me of french riviera glamour!

PetiteXXS July 2, 2010 at 8:36 PM   said...

You look great! Love the hat too! Lol about the people staring... where do you take your outside pictures? I still feel a little too self-conscious to try that yet, and plus timer pictures take forever to take and don't know why but mine often come out blurry too.

Nikki July 2, 2010 at 8:49 PM   said...

Awww... Angie, you are just too darling(y) cute ;) Hehehe! I love the whole look. The title suits your outfit very well or vice versa. Hehe!

Omg! we're the same height. I'm 5'3 too, or 5'3.5? Idk? I used to be the shortest in my class too. From preschool to middle school, I was always infront of the line. Anyways, now, I realized that there are people that are actually shorter than me. Hehe! People used to call me "fun-sized" cause I'm so tiny & small. But, you're right, with the help of heels... I don't feel so short anymore. Plus I learned to appreciate my height more because at least when I wear heels, I won't look like an amazon woman. Hehehe! I get to wear 5 inch heels and still look like a decent height girl. LOVE BEING SHORT! hehe!

Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July <3333

Thank you for going through all the troubles to get some outside pictures! j/k :)

You looked very lovely and cute in that outfit. I don't think I can pull off a pair of white pumps (that's why I don't own one), but seeing a pair on you, and how nice they looked, I am tempted to purchase a pair myself :).

γ•γ‚‰γΎγ‚Š July 2, 2010 at 9:30 PM   said...

Oh your outfit looks just so summery and lovely! I think the blurriness/quality makes the photos very nice and like you said they have a vintage look^^

I don't think 5'3 is short, like you said the average is 5'4 and many of my friends are that height (caucasians) how rude people are to make fun of you! ><*

Oreleona July 2, 2010 at 11:10 PM   said...

Ken July 3, 2010 at 1:14 AM   said...
