As of now I am finally moved back home - most of my belongings are out of my apartment and piled in my family’s living room, haha. The stressful part is over now, or at least until I start preparing for my move to LA (but that will be more exciting stress). :]]
Now I have more time to blog! I wanted to do an outfit post for what I wore during graduation last weekend. All photos were taken by my dad ~
I am so completely in love with this dress. I searched long and hard for the perfect graduation dress; looking for a dress online was my way of relaxing (procrastinating) from all the end of year projects I had to complete. During that time I visited so many websites that I started to see duplicates of the same dresses and knew where they were cheaper or more expensive. ;p
After almost giving up, I finally stumbled upon this From Paris With Love print dress by Ginger Fizz on Asos. I was searching for something that would make me feel sophisticated (like a grown-up! ;p ) yet youthful at the same time and I think this dress worked perfectly for that. Most of the Ginger Fizz pieces have that same feminine/cute vibe and I’m in love with them all, especially the dresses with Renaissance prints. ♥
Also, I’ve been lusting after large, digital prints for awhile now and this dress turned out to be a pretty affordable option for my tight budget. I managed to get a 10% off code by joining the UNiDAYS program at Asos. If you sign up with that link I’ll get credit at Asos, haha~ :]
For this specific dress, my advice would be to go down rather than up if you’re in between two sizes. On the measurement chart I was in between US sizes 2 and 4 for the bust, and decided to go with the larger 4 to be safe. The dress ended up being a little large on me, but with some quick alterations I made it fit nicely, so it all worked out. And I’m in love with the “scuba” cut of the sleeves/front too!
- Flower Hair Clip: Forever21, only $1.80 :]
- Floral Necklace: A modified version of the peach/gold version of this necklace from Forever21
- Dress: From Paris With Love print dress by Ginger Fizz
- Coral Wedges: My parents got them for me when they traveled to Paris last year ♥
I was so happy when I realized I had shoes that matched so well with the dress. I have very few neutral colored clothing and shoes. When I say “neutral” I mean natural colors like tan, white, off-white, brown, peach, etc. I don’t know exactly why, but a few years ago I decided to eliminate most of the neutral colored pieces from my wardrobe.
This decision has of course turned out to be inconvenient at times… so I was lucky that my parents brought me these shoes as a gift from their vacation to Paris last year! ♥
As I mentioned in my previous post, graduation day turned out lovely and I feel so lucky that I got to spend it with my friends and family. :] And now summer is here, as well as new adventures and new projects! ~ Hope you’re all enjoying it too!
