SEA

Friday, May 31, 2013




Layered Pearl Necklace c/o Chic Peek, Crystal Cross Necklace c/o Love Stylize, Cream Batwing Blouse c/o Romwe, Starfish Cuff (Similar: 1, 2), White Skinny Belt from Forever 21, Bleached 501 Shorts from Levi's, Embroidered Tights c/o bebaroque, Nude Ankle-Strap Pumps from Nine West

Today's look is built around these hand-embroidered tights from bebaroque! The sandy tone of the ruffles, along with the crystal and pearl embellishments all reminded me of the sea. I felt that a pair of tights as beautiful as these ones were especially deserving of a special photo shoot so I've been saving them to wear on a day that I could make it over to Ocean Beach in San Francisco to take photos! The tights are made from a very high quality nylon that is super durable and warm and they did not catch or rip on anything at all. They matched perfectly with the Levi 501's that I wore to the Lookbook.nu x Levi's 501 Party in SF last night so I was able to get these photos taken before the party while I was in the city :) More photos from the party will come later but I had such a fun time and was so happy to get to meet the Lookbook staff!!

The original color of these shorts is a medium blue, but I bleached them for a couple hours to get them to this very light blue. I decided to style the shorts with a simple white blouse to allow the tights to stand out. For jewelry, I wore this starfish cuff to match the theme of the sea, and then this pearl necklace from Chic Peek and crystal cross necklace from Love Stylize to match the embellishments in the tights.

  2. You look gorgeous! At the moment I am also using a Nikon D5100 with a 50mm 1.8G lens - just wondering what settings your camera is on? Because these photos seem to have a blurrier background effect than mine! Thank you xxx

    1. I think it might just be because the water in the background and the rocks are actually super far away, so it gets blurred more! But I always shoot on Aperture Priority on f1.8 :)

  3. This sounds creepy but I think I saw you yesterday afternoon on Townsend! I remember cause your outfit caught my eye (especially the tights) as I was walking by. I had no idea it was you (and if it wasn't, then nevermind), but I just had a minifreak out when I saw your blog post hahaha

    1. Thank you! :) Hmm... I still need to figure out what dress I'm wearing but it will probably end up being a simple white bodycon dress because I'm going to go for a minimalist look since these are the sandals I hope will have come in time: http://www.choies.com/product/new-style-toe-sandals-in-white

      For jewelry/accessories, maybe a pair of long white armwarmers with the dress. :)
