Truths and Pun.

Truth: my closet gained a lot of great items in 2016 from two stores, Target and Loft. Coincidentally the two main items here are from Target (the cardigan... BTW the purse is too) and from Loft (the dress). The boots and leggings are by Maurice's.
Truth: (speaking of the boots) - The Boots are my favorite boots/booties purchased in 2016 and they were a steal!
Truth: I cannot stop wearing these Black Faux Leather Leggings recently, especially under dresses, like in this outfit.
Truth: You will see these leggings and these boots on this blog once more this week.

Truth: This dress from Loft is a petite (in small). I wanted it so badly I had to get it. I wish they had the regular small or at least the medium petite but thankfully it is not too short, though I have long legs. I justified the purchase easier too, since it was 60% off.
Truth: I wore this exact outfit (even the same necklace and purse) minus the cardigan on New Year's Eve Eve (Dec 30th) (a day after the boots, leggings and dress were purchased). But it was so cold out for me to take photos and I figured you were tired of my Christmas tree. So, yesterday I decided to wear this same outfit except I added the Gray+Snow Leopard Cardigan. 
Truth: It was super cold and windy and snowy yesterday when I took these photos but since I had the cardigan not just the dress on, I tolerated taking my coat, gloves and heavy blanket scarf off for a few minutes, just to take these photos.
Truth: I had no idea that this pattern-mixing of a large floral print and a smaller snow leopard print would work. But the gray cardigan which matches my OTK boots, brings out all the gray and lavender colors of the flowers from the dress. By the way, the burgundy background of the dress also matches the Burgundy Crossbody Bag. So in reality there are mainly three colors here: gray, burgundy and black.
So, how do you like today's look?!

  16. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI www.pesugihan-uang-ghaib.com agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
