Wine Red


Wearing Old Navy funnel neck coat, gray cardigan underneath, seed skirt, random tights, aldo acc. legwarmers, payless boots, again.

Yes, I know this outfit is anything but wine red.

The title has just been a catchy song I've been listening to for a bit after my friend sent it to me! It gets stuck in my head all the time! After being on a long shopping ban(okay, it was probably a week long), I went to Target to check out the GO international collection by Thakoon. The patterns were okay, but it didn't capture my attention too much. I think it was the choice of fabrics I wasn't into. I saw some promising pieces, but they were always lacking according to my picky-ness. There was this skirt but it lacked the high-waisted goodness I hoped for. I was pretty disappointed that I walked out empty handed. But on the other hand, I got a box of fruit snacks. I haven't had them in too long! Have I mentioned how addicting they are for me?

I walked over to the Old Navy next door to the Home Depot and decided to search around. I think it was the SALE imprinted on the window. And BAM! I found this white coat. I love its funnel neck, which you can't see too well in the photos. No worries, it'll debut a lot more often! I was also debating with another coat, in a deep cherry red color, like wine red! I just noticed how the title relates to the coat! It was not intentional. Anyways, I've decided for some time that red definitely was not my color, but the coat gave me a second glance! It surprisingly didn't completely wash out my face, since I'm extremely tan. It's weird how tanish I get in the summer. My mom convinced me to buy the white one instead, good choice I'm hoping! I've craving for some color!

I went out to Bertucci's with my mom as a new "experiment". We've hoping to try out restaurants we've never been to before. I'm so stuffed of penne and bread I'm about to explode. Funny moment of the day: My mom tried 10 times to use the pepper shaker until I finally told her to grind it. After I told her that, she kept shaking it. Oh, mom.

Finally the new year! Yes, I've been saying this TOO much. But hopefully I'll post more often and try to get to everyone's comments! Thanks everyone for checking out my blog!

Sorry for the terrible updating! I've been lazy sleeping most of the time and curling up on my couch with a huge blanket and a copy of New Moon. Hehe.
