Express [Columnist]

Today I purchased the Columnist pants (in Barely Boot) from Express. Size 00S fit me very well (again, I'm 5'3" and I usually wear size 2 at H&M) - seems like Express is finally offering true sizes, at least in its dress pants. Finally found a pair of dress pants that fit me well without having to break the bank. I would the fit of these pants in the thighs are similar to the size 2 at H&M, if not better. The material has a nice weight and definitely better quality than H&M. It would be nicer if the leg opening is a tad bigger, but that is not an issue since they also offer the Columnist pants in Slim Flare...

If anyone needs a pair of classic black pants, I would recommend these!

Giving this another try

I have been neglecting this blog for so long now. With a job that requires a dress code, haven't really had time to dress the way I want. After a day at work, the only thing I want to do is sleep...and bum around.

I have shopped quite a lot during these past few months and above are some of my favorite pieces. I love bright colors and I love the bright yellow majestic pea-coat I got from J.Crew during their final sale. During my recent trip to NYC I purchased the pale pink silk shirt from Madewell. A laced tank from Club Monaco and another laced piece from A&F. I expect these pieces to last me a long long time because of their versatility and I can dress them up/down.

I was looking at the wishlist I had created last year and I have fulfilled two items - DSLR and leopard printed scarf. I purchased the Canon Rebel T3i and I absolutely love it! Don't get me wrong, I love my iPhone for taking quick snapshots and editing them using Instagram, but the quality of the photos taken with the DSLR definitely surpasses the iPhone. One of my favorite photos I have taken so near the Liberty Island Ferry's ticket booth:

Going forward, I'll definitely try to post at least once or twice a week...I will do my best to keep it fashion related with my photography related blurbs here and there.
