Into the blue

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope everybody had a great weekend wherever you were.

Last week ended perfectly - school was over, Italy went into the final of European Cup (but they lost to Spain, the defending champion) and I received something in the mail! Yes, arrived in the mail was this beautiful blue top from Oasap. 

This top is actually a dress, yes, a dress but I wore it as a top (which actually is not too bad) to make it more age appropriate and suitable for a casual outing.  The top/dress came with a belt of which you can choose to wear or not and both way it is still gorgeous!  I love how it falls in beautiful folds and drapes and of course the color.. this is truly a tribute to the Azzurri for the good effort in the championship!    















For this post I am very lucky as my good friend Azlina Ali and her lovely daughter Alia volunteered to help me with the pictures.  While the twins were lost in another world playing video games with her son Alias, we experimented with some shots.  Azlina was a fashion journalist for 'Her World' magazine back in Malaysia and her daughter Alia is a photography enthusiast and together they created these shots.  We had a lot of fun and my special thanks to them for their time and company :)

  12. I used to love reading Her World and Female magazines. The electric blue compliments your skin tone beautifully. I can't imagine wearing it as a dress seeing how short it is.

  17. I love the way you styled the dress. The color sure suits you. BTW, I think the dress is a bit too short, glad you turned it into a tunic. ;)
