Happy Lunar New Year and happy Friday! I wish everyone a wonderful new year filled with luck, happiness, good health, and prosperity.
I haven’t done an outfit post in forever, so today, I am sharing a casual outfit that I wore to work. I wore leggings and an over-sized sweater, which is a great simple outfit for transitioning into spring. Southern California is already in 70-77° weather, but if you live in a cooler climate, I would throw on a jacket or scarf to stay extra warm. This beige sweater has diamond patterns in front with hints of white and pink which makes the look a bit more feminine. For shoes, I wore patent leather loafers with tassel detail for a dressy look.
Last weekend, my best friend since middle school got married. She had two weddings, and the one I attended was her traditional Cambodian (Khmer) wedding ceremony. I haven’t been to a traditional Khmer wedding since I was 9 when my aunt got married, so it was pretty hard figuring out the appropriate attire. I decided to wear this mock one-piece water-color flower dress from Liz Liza. I ordered this dress from Tokyo Otaku Mode because the main Liz Lisa website, Tokyo Kawaii Life, no longer sells it. This dress runs pretty small so it’s perfect for petites. I’m 4’10, and the length stops right above my knees. I love dresses that looks like a two-piece because it saves me a lot of time when deciding on what to wear.
Liz Lisa Dress: One-size | Total Length: 32.4 inches or 84.2 cm
Trench coat shopping is one of my biggest nightmare. It’s either too long in length, the fit is awkward, or the length of the sleeves were always too long. I’m about 4’10”, and wearing coats that past my waist makes me look even shorter. Back in January I decided to give Burberry trench coat a try as well as to treat myself to a nice birthday gift.
When I went in, of course they questioned my age (not literally) by giving me weird stares and a hesitant “hello,” but I’m happy I didn’t get any rude sales associates. The SA that helped me was very nice, and she took my height into consideration and was very patient with me. I was interested in buying The Chelsea – Heritage Trench Coat in black since I love wearing white, grey, and black. I never knew they came in 4 sizes (shown below) – short, mid, long, x-long.
Mini pencil skirt is a great alternative for ladies under 5 feet who are looking for work outfits. At 4’10, I struggle with finding skirts that are at the perfect length. But I noticed that most mini skirts are actually the perfect length on me. Mini skirts, and mini dresses, usually stops above my knees or below my mid-thighs. I bought this skirt from Uniqlo last winter because I thought I could wear it casually out to lunch or dinner with friends. But after a few uses, I realized that it can also work for business casual attires. Today, I wore it with a white lace-up crop top T-shirt from Romwe, grey heels, and a gray cardigan.
