White Chiffon and Pink Blazer

Blouse: Smart Set ($10), Blazer: Thrifted ($4), Pants: GAP ($15), Necklace: Wal Mart ($3), Watch: Fossil (gift), skinny belt: borrowed from another skirt

This pink blazer is turning out to be quite versatile. I recently wore it here and here. It cost me like nothing at my local thrift store and I have already got my money worth out of it. I also feel I got it last year just for the sake for having pink blazer in the closet, you know. Little that I knew the year after, H&M would have a blazer like this for $40.

Lesson learned: don't throw clothes away fast, the style might return again! Like the jean jacket trend.

Union Dance

Dress: H&M ($30), Belt: $2, Necklace: Wedding gift (from in-laws), Bangles: F21 ($5),
Earrigns: Flee Market (in India)

My hubby and I went to the union dance last weekend and it was so much fun! I got to sit with the mayor and the councillors of our city (If you ask me, I felt like a BIG DEAL).

I also felt like a big deal, bec i wore my diamond jewellery that I received from my wedding gifts from my in-laws. I love the classy-ness of the necklace :) I dont know if you can tell by the design, but it matches with my engagement ring. and cobalt blue and gold works good together! :)
