Yippee! An outfit post, finally. The weather has been dismal and I've been overnight for too long. But I'm back, and in my default black, white and red color palette. I just think you can't go wrong with these three colors together. For today, it's my culottes again, which I wore during the H&M preview a few weeks back...wow that seems so long ago now. This time I wanted my look to be a little preppy as opposed to the tough vibe I was doing then. 

Culottes are one of those pieces I always knew would look good on me even when they weren't trendy yet. I had a pair, but it was too long. Do you know how hard it is to find something out of trend? Very hard. Sigh, at least if you want it in an affordable price. But they're so worth the wait because I might not post in on the blog all the time, but I wear them almost every week. So much so that I think I need to get more options.

Also in this outfit, another amazing bling from Topps Collection. It's a cool necklace, isn't it? I love my statement necklaces - which for sure y'all already know. It's just a great detail on an outfit to have. If you want some major bling moments as well, you can check out Topps Collection on FB. They're planning to ship to the US soon so good news to us!

Anyways, are you getting culotted dreams as well? Or are you still on the fence with this trend? Let me know.

Hi darlings, how was your weekend? Mine started out pretty awesomely, climaxed and then ended on a really sour note. These photos were taken on a pretty amazing day. Leon and I were off together (finally) and we were pretty set just mucking around for the entire day. We deserve it. Whew. So, a big lunch, which, if you've been following my Instagram, it's always a big lunch. Then day simple day of errands, family time, and social drinks with the family. I decided to wear something super laid-back, with my trusted pointy flats and another pair of trouser leggings from Uniqlo. At this rate I want every color.

Did you tell your daddies how much you loved them today? For Father's Day, Leon decided to throw a barbecue at our place - which has private cabanas for that very purpose. Well, what do you know - Macau's weather reared its ugly head and decided that typhoon level rain was in order for the afternoon. Nope we didn't get to do our barbecue. Also, I realized that there are still blatant racists in this world, right in my backyard but I don't feel like elaborating right now. Nope, nothing went right. But I got to tell my dad I loved him, and we bonded over "The Walking Dead" as one does. So, how did your weekend go? Discuss!

H&M Grand Opening

Macau is not usually an early-bird-gets-the-worm kind of place but you wouldn't have guessed that if you were at the H&M Macau grand opening. Music blaring, everyone cheering, and the palpable excitement in the area, you know this is a big event that everyone is glad to celebrate. People have been lining up since the day before. We were up and ready to go at 9:30a.m, I was running on caffeine and adrenaline. The ribbon was cut at 10am and then, presto! Lines upon lines upon lines of people (which, if you ever see how small Macau is, you will know how surprising that is) were rushing into the store to get their fashion fix. A lot of amazing items, finally within reach. Woo hoo, I don't have to travel for 2 hours just to get to an H&M, never again! Of course, another excitement was that David Beckham was going to come by and check out the store. Yep, music, shopping, and David Beckham - H&M...where else?

So, what do you think of the event? Discuss, darlings!
