Went for Chinese....

[EDIT: ADDED CLOSE UP OF ACCESSORIES AS PER THE LOVELY MS. CONSTANTINE]

...the other night but failed to take pictures of the delicious food we glutted ourselves on. However, the meal did get S off his photog strike! Here are some shots he willingly took...I didn't exactly bribe him with food, but I'm sure it helped...

Favourite Grey Blazer - Thrifted (Boys Suit Jacket)
Basic T - H&M

Silver Clover Earrings - Heidi Klum via Hautelook.com
Glasses (so I can see) - Chanel
Jeans - SevenFAM
Metallic Peeptoes - Prada
Navy Handbag (again) - Katherine Kwei I love the art of Chinese Knotting she infuses in her designs






















I know I said I've
been wearing more masculine pieces since the cut but as you can see, it's starting to wear off as I throw more splashes of girly in there...though to my disdain, my brother wears skinnies...

One thing I have to mention is that S is pretty bossy behind the lens...telling me to follow his finger with my eyes (as though I'm getting an eye exam), then to turn my head not just my eyes...

...blah, blah, blah...but we love it :)
In the end my cheeks are always sore from laughing...

...and he always feels smug. It's a win-win!

When we got home from dinner, he decided some indoor shots were necessary
...

Apparently he thought a shot casting a HUGE shadow would be um... flattering???
I posted it because it reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock Silhouette...and what girl doesn't want one of her own?
Click to enlarge...even more fun!

I know I missed the food photos but I did manage to take S' fortune home and take a shot of it...

Poor thing...
I'm more of a "told you so" type wife...
...only when he deserves it, LOL.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  11. I love blazers so much. And damn those shoes are high!

    It would be great to get some closer shots of your shoes, bags, and jewellery. :] The pics are quite small here so closer cropping would be awesome.

  17. I'm intrigued by the fact the fortune cookie also speaks French ;-) Lovely outfit! I think masculine meets girly is the ultimate anyway... one or the other would be boring and that blazer suits you perfectly! Great shoes and I adore the details on that bag!

    Wishing you a terrific weekend! :)

  20. YOU ARE SO GORGEOUS! I absolutely love that blazer, it's my favorite! I love how you paired it with a simple white tee; I think it keeps everything classic. PS-Thanks for your tips on the 'future' party, I can see where you are coming from on the white. Kind of reminds me of lady ga-ga for some reason? LOL.
