Wardrobe Diaries: The Colour Of Love


When I first put this outfit on I received quite a few stares from my husband and my sister. But I ignored them because I just loved how romantic this outfit looked. I feel like I escaped from a modern day Romeo & Juliet. Perhaps it's the billowy sleeves or the luxurious fabrics or the red and cream paired together. Whatever it is, I just feel like I should be sitting in a quaint cafe furiously scribbling in my sketchbook... or silently strolling by the Seine hand in hand with the love of my life stopping now and then for a stolen kiss... or waltzing my way home to the dim glow of street lamps and clickity-click of my heels... or... or perhaps I've just been watching Midnight In Paris one too many times (curse you Woody Allen!).

My goodness, Jenee... you're beautiful! Love the blouse and (especially) the bold, red, wide-leg, high-waist pants. I also like the skin-tone peep-toe pumps. I also love the handbag. You are totally charming.

OMG...I need to pin you in this outfit. This is one of the most gorgeous looks I've ever seen!! Not even kidding!! Those pants are so gorgeous- the color, the cut, the style. STUNNING. Let me know if I can add this to my pinterest, OK???
Re: japanese culture- no clue how it started...I've spent time in Japan but not long enough to fall in love with it or anything. I think it started with my obsession with a japanese boy in the 2nd grade and my massive love for Hello Kitty and (at the time) Kero Kero Keroppi! It's only gotten worse. :)
