I still remember that moment where we all thought "Wow, look at her. She's all grown-up!"  It's that photo of her that circulated in the web soaking some sun while filming one of her movies two years ago.  And that was that.  Late and early this year I was on the lookout for Lupita Nyong'o's red carpet moments which are let's be honest, not exactly copy-able.  I wasn't looking much for style inspiration but there she is - always coming out everywhere looking so chic and sophisticated.  So when I found this ensemble that she wore for a Vogue Foundation Gala recently, I knew that it wouldn't take long for me to copy her look.  To deviate a bit, I injected my favorite animal print in my look. I've just been Emma-fied! I super duper love her! :)

Distressed DIY

I have this habit of raiding my brother's closet for some items to wear.  And today, it was this white V-neck tee with a bad chic print (not that I am, lol!).  I guess I'm never really a shirt and jeans type of girl so that's why I had to borrow from him.  As mentioned, you'll also seldom find me in jeans so when it occurred to me that I haven't worn this one below for about a year now, I reckon it  was a good guinea pig for some DIY project (and not my Pop's Levi's that I've been eyeing for some time now lol!).

Since distressed jeans are so fasyon right now, I attempted to be creative with my scissors last night. Riiiight.  Attempt is the term.  I believe the clothing material of this jeans wouldn't allow for some tassels as usually seen in the normal ones.  I didn't have the time as well as it was a flash bulb moment just as midnight was approaching (good job cakes! lol!) so this is all I came up with.  Haha!  But it earned about 13 likes in FB and around 17 likes in IG so I guess it's not that bad. Lol!  It's interesting though the likers in my Facebook are from some of my guy friends who don't usually like my #ootds.  Hmmmm.  Maybe they liked the shirt. Haha!
