your mom does not count as a fan


zara dress and platforms, vintage crinoline (underneath)

Another all-white outfit featuring my new Zara platforms. Today we took care of some chores and watched Julie & Julia downtown. I also managed to get a hold of my friend's DSLR to snap my outfit shots. Here you can also get a pretty good idea of how ridiculously high the ceilings are in Pika's apartment. Everyone around me seems to have a DSLR and it's about time I picked one up as well. My dad actually asked me once if I needed a new camera for my blog! I forget that a lot of people I know IRL do look at this, including my parents. While I unpacked my bags last month during my last visit home, I showed my mom my floral H&M maxi dress and she told me that she had already seen it on my blog. Oh momma! Well, we shall see about that camera...

(Again, no pictures of the shoes, sorry. Here's a frittata Pika made for lunch with yesterday's leftovers.)

all white looks especially good on you. and your hair is gorgeous as usual.

i'm super jealous of this apartment. i'm a sucker for all-white rooms, hardwood floors and yeah, high ceilings! lucky you, lucky boy!

p.s. if you didn't have a DSLR all this time, how are you pictures such good quality? especially the food pictures, like the ones of the sushi?!

Your dad's so nice. I'd have to beg my dad for a whole year to get him to buy me one.

I love this. I've got a similar dress from zara and it's my favourite one.

roxybelle said...

I don't know which is more delicious, the food or the setting...
I too am hopelessly addicted to all white. I love wearing all white outfits. Something about it. I like the shoes though. I apprecitae the nuetral dash of 'color' they add to the entire ensemble. Nice choices.

trisha said...

Annabel said...

Alice - I've had a point and shoot for so long that I'm used to being really picky about the pictures that come out... a lot of it has to do with finding good lighting and taking advantage of the macro setting!

Laurie - LOLOLOLOLOL!! so true -___-

Anonymous - OMG my roommate and I were just watching that video when we were talking about the latest kpop groups with a ton of members... so weird.

Sam said...

I know this is a rather personal question, but how do you afford all of this? I'm a college student myself and sometimes I look at chictopia and things and I can't fathom how anyone affords anything in this economy... I could barely put any money in for the trashcan in my apartment :/

Noiretta said...

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It gets down to select a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
