My Favorite Things

November 16, 2010

I finally got around to revamping the blog since the last design was so cluttered. I figured since one of the original intents of my blog was to give myself outfit ideas when I am feeling uninspired, I should try to take better pictures.

I have to say, WHEW, it is so much easier taking pictures with a remote and a tripod. The only downside is that I take pictures in the basement, which means the lack of natural light. One of these days I'll gather enough courage and venture outside.

This outfit combines some of my favorite things: ruffles, tulle, headband (bonus for flower appliques), and tall heels.

  2. I love the new layout of your blog, it looks so sleek! =) And your photos look so much better with a tripod and remote. I gotta find a remote for my camera so I don't have to keep using the self-timer. It's such a hassle walking back and forth.

  3. That headband is so kitchy, I love it! I really like your style btw (I know I've told you before) but it's so soft and romantic with a splash of chic thrown in. The very best of feminine I would say ;)

  6. Yay for a new layout. I love the colors and the pic you chose for the header sums up your blog perfectly. The rosettes on the headband are so pretty. Was it from your recent Limited purchase? If so, I'm glad the shipping cost didn't go to waste :)

  7. I love your new layout as well. You look so adorable in that outfit. I can't never pull off the tulle skirt like you. Yay for the tripod and the remote!

  8. So cute! I love the headband and the skirt! I think I'll have to try this outfit on my daughter. I'm too old for this look. :)

  9. So adorable! Love the ballerina-feel. Great new layout as well. I love the font on your banner. I think it's new layout season..PLG made a new one, I did, and now you. LOL Hey, I think this is the first time I've seen your face here..maybe give or take a few blurry photos. You look very pretty, missy! I'd like to see more of your face! So youthful ; ) Actually, how old are you?! And I've never guessed your ethnicity as I've done with some of the other petite bloggers...lemme guess..Cantonese or Mandarin? haha (Yeah super long msg this time 'cause I'm procrastinating studying for my exam tmw..)

  11. Hey, thanks for the link on your blogroll page! Glad some of my "blog advice" posts helped you. : ) I've been meaning to do a "links" page on my blog for a while now...but I'm following so many I don't know how to organize them! I will soon though..hopefully by the new year. : )

  12. Lisa - thanks! :)

    Callandra - thanks, a compliment from you is so flattering because you are one of my new style icons. I am only comfortable mixing solids but you have a knack for putting together outfits that are entirely original.

    Angie - lol, maybe in the spring. I am not nearly as dedicated as you.

    Jess and Jean - Thanks. I felt the old layout was quite difficult to navigate because of all the widgets and whatnot I had placed. Plus, you two both have super clean layout so I can only dream to have sophisticated layout like yours.

    Cee - yes it was! So it wasn't a total loss and it's actually really comfortable to wear...unlike some of the headbands I have.

    PLG - you can pull off everything, though I know you try to focus on the chic and less childish (unlike me, LOL)

    Vicky - you are NOT too old for any look...if you don't have kids that are early tweens (they look 9ish) I would have had trouble believing you are a day over 25.

    Jessy - lol, thanks. The bf very kindly asked me to keep my face and identity somewhat hidden because he's paranoid about stalkers and whatnot (which doesn't make too much sense since I have like 20 readers who are nearly all girls). And I am 24. :) and I am Taiwanese!

    Olyvia - you are like my age! Do not say you are too told...because it makes me feel too old to wear tulle. You look young too so you can safely wear ballerina skirts for the next 15ish years.

  13. Elle-- i love your new banner!! it's so cute that you have the camera with you as how you always have it. i wished you'd show more of you!!

  14. haha I guess you look about your age! If I hadn't known, I would've guessed like 21-22ish? : ) My boyfriend is kinda paranoid too. He's more iffy about people finding me online though because he has an online alias that he goes by on a particular website. He doesn't want us posting the same pics and such for fear of people linking him & I together. LOL Like you said though, the majority of my readers are female. I can actually only count four males that read my blog (my bf included) and those are actually guys I know! LOL

  15. Whooaaaah, this is one awesome layout! Heehee, I liked how you broke down what you love in fashion. I totally knew you are obsessed with ruffles, tulle, and high heels but I totally forgot you love headbands!!
    Is this the first time you showing your face?! You are so cute! Tell your bf I said hi and that I promised I won't stalk you too much on your blog. <3 (I ONLY COME HERE TO SEE YOUR RUFFLES AND HIGH HEELS I SWEAR)
    Heehee, Jessy totally guessed my ethnicity she is pretty good at this!

  16. Love the layout - and the headband. I wish I could pull off style so flawlessly, you look lovely! I really love the Jcrew top, though for some reason, I feel like their clothes just don't fit me...is that top size xxs???

  18. Elle I love your new layout, and how you did the outfit thing!! I must admit though that I kinda miss your old banner.. I liked it so much and never tired of seeing it everytime I visit your blog! The new one is very genius as well :)

    And love the "outtake". More!! Hehehe.

  22. Very cute look! I like the new layout too.

  23. Thank you ladies, I appreciate your sweet comments about the blog. I was a little unsure about the new layout but glad that you all found it ok to look at.

    Hanna - haha, I wouldn't call this "showing my face" since it's tweaked in photoshop. Hey, if you really want to see me, you can just come visit. It is not very exciting here but I am mad funny and will at least provide entertainment.

    Sophia - I know, I may bring it back...I sort of miss it too. Change is always good, right? :)

    Irene - yes it is XXS but J. Crew sizing is totally vanity...when an xxs is too big for me it's a sad day for most slim petites around the world because I am actually pretty average sized.

    Kaleido - I don't think there are anymore at my local HM...will keep an eye out for you. ;( sorry!

  26. Love the new outfit layout, and your new design looks very clean although I kinda liked your old banner too! And glad to see more of you... and I have to say you do look Taiwanese (probably because I already knew that :P)
