Stylish Toddlers (Without Tiaras)

I will eventually stop referencing TLC programming in my titles…  Maybe.

Children’s fashion has changed quite a bit from when I was a kid. My mom liked to dress me up in my sunday best practically every day (see exhibits A & B below). Now I hardly ever see little girls walking around in frou frou dresses and shiny mary-janes or boys in bow ties and button up shirts. Nowadays things tend to be more on the casual, and sometimes dowdy, side. Once in a while though, you spot a little tot wearing something that makes you wish you could still shop at the baby Gap.

Exhibit A: red dress, red socks, black and white shoes, confused look.

Exhibit B: floral one piece, white socks, black shoes, …cannot explain facial expression.

Some celeb kids have become major trend setters and i’m guilty of having followed Suri Cruise’s fashion journey since the time she used to sport her adorable short bobbed do.

Outfit Post: Love for Tangerine

Finally, you all see me in pictures! It’s a bit ironic how I love fashion with all my heart, but not really into taking pictures of myself. But don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love dressing up! I love finding new items of clothing to add to my wardrobe.

Thanks to my awesome cousin Dorothy for having the patience of photographing me!

Ever since Pantone has declared that the color of the year 2012 was Tangerine Tango and seeing Tangerine on Spring 2012 runways, I had a huge obsession with Tangerine or any derivation of a bright orangey-red. I love this cardigan for its comfort and for how it makes my entire outfit pop!


What I’m wearing:

  • H&M Tangerine Sweater
  • Dynamite Sleeveless Patterned Blouse & Necklace
  • Forever 21 Rhinestone Cuff
  • American Apparel High Waist Pants & Reversible Belt
  • BCBG Handbag
  • Nine West Oxford Heels
  • Michael Kors Knox Watch MK5505

Needless to say, I don’t aspire to be a model and I’m okay knowing that I’ll never be one. Not everyone is tall, leggy, skinny, with a pretty face all at once. But I believe that no matter who you are or how you look like, style should never be compromised or overlooked just because you are not 100% of what the media depicts as beautiful and sexy.

Style, like I’ve said before, is your identity fashion-wise. For my outfits, I love playing with color combinations and always having that comfort appeal.

I love statement jewellery. It gives a wardrobe the wow factor to shine (sometimes almost literally with all those crystals and rhinestones).



I love huge chronograph watches. Michael Kors does it so well. I look for large faces with the minute detail.

You’ve probably seen watches where there’s a dot to indicate the 12 o’clock and that’s as detailed as it gets. I don’t get that! Apparently, you would just estimate the time and you get used to it. I don’t know, maybe because I don’t want to waste time to guess the time, but I love my new MK watch. Thank you ebay for your awesome prices!
