Unpack Red Chiffon Shirt from PersunMall.com








Hi, hi, hi...
Today I want to share a trial/review and styling of this red chiffon shirt. I won it as a free trial from PersunMall.com. Of course I am happy especially because I've been thinking about adding shirts or blouses in my wardrobe. Tops which look more mature, can be worn for more formal event or party, with fabrics that fall nicely, and long enough to cover my bottom part (one of solutions to my problem: underwear mark when wearing pants without back pockets or legging).

The Trial/Review
In the second photo you can see my unpacking. The package came in a zip lock plastic packaging. They e-mailed me the tracking number after they sent it and the item arrived without damage.

The fabric seems and feels very nice, 100% cotton. It's a little bit sheer so I wore a vest underneath. This shirt feels light, cool and airy, nice loose-fitting for me. The stitches are neat. It has lap concealed red buttons, cute little metallic buttons on the wrists and front fake pockets. It also features curl up sleeve hooks. I would like the pockets to be real functional pockets. More about the look you can see in the photos above. As reference I have small upper and have gained weight around my hips so I think I tend to have a more pear figure. I am 152 tall and the shirt size S. The sleeves are too long for me but I like them that way.

I like the look and  the feeling when I wore it. Similar to satin or fine lace, chiffon fabric is delicate so I would wear it for occasions without involving walking trough woods or bushes. I would also only wash it by hand. It's light to hand wash it anyway. The color bleeds but I do love the red color of this shirt! I let it soaked in diluted vinegar hoping too lock the color not to bleed anymore..

The Look Styling
For this chance I styled the red chiffon shirt two ways with the same color palette. Unfortunately I haven't had chance to do the pictures outside, so maybe next time when I wear it again, maybe with another styling. I would make another outfit post with this shirt. Here are the looks recipee.

For the first look:
  • Red chiffon shirt from PersunMall.com (they have various items), item link Rivet Details Chiffon Shirt in Red here
  • Metallic bodycon skirt: NewYorker,
  • Black lace up booties, black tights, black bag with buckle, and charm earrings of Eiffel Tower! Label Accessories, I bought at EUROSPAR supermarket.
  • Pink lips, instead of red matchy matchy one, and swipe-a-side hair (I don't know how to call it).

As for second look:
  • Red chiffon shirt from PersunMall.com (they have various items), item link Rivet Details Chiffon Shirt in Red here
  • Black vest
  • Shiny black legging-pants from C&A (old)
  • Thrifted black sling back shoes label Ashby, black socks
  • Swarovsky necklace
  • Thrifted Pop Art Giant Black Paint Tube bag! It can be worn as backpack too.
  • Pony tail
  • No nail polish because my nails need a "break" before they're broken!
If you have experiences with similar item, opinions or tips feel free to comment and thank you in advance. :-)  I wish you all a super inspiring day.

Sunny Walk and Sunnies



















Hi, everyone. 
I took a Nordic walking walk. (Note that I only take photo of my self when I stop walking and set my timer/selfie snapshot. :-)) It was hot, bright sunshiny day so I have a full protection outfit. Though I wore a visor I still needed to wear sunglasses because I used antibiotic drops (made my eyes more photosensitive) and I need them to protect my eyes from the wind too. This time my choice went again to my brown sunnies from Firmoo.com. These sunnies have UV filter and brown tint lenses. They are comfortable, light, fit, don't make headache and don't make distortion or make my eyes tired. I had posted the first review on my other blog Chachamisu here.

If you are interested in shopping glasses, especially in a vintage cat style, this online optical store Firmoo.com has good news for you who has been following my blogs (thank you). They offer $30 off on the Vintage Cat Eye Frames with this code: this voucher code: 72b859e6a. It is valid till May 29th and can be used by 5 persons. Be sure to check their delivery range.  (Not to forget their Free Glasses offer they open periodically.)

It was as well colorful day. The sky is bright blue, green spring foliage, wild flowers in white, pink and yellow. People playing basketball, soccer, running, walking like me, roller skating, biking, archery, walking the dog or just doing a relax stroll. I wore my colorful print top again but now I wore it turned away around so the zipper is in front as a jacket. Actually different colors are a little bit out of harmony, because I wore burgundy socks and there are blue too on my shoes and my walking sticks, but blue is like the sky anyway, therefore I have matching colors with my surroundings. :-) I also found a white feather few months ago and I slip it into pen pocket on my backpack.

I only have one pair of sport sneakers which really work, so I have no other sneakers option. They are 2 number bigger than my usual size, big enough for my custom orthopedic insoles (due to feet/ankle problem in the past).

About the cargo pants, I got them in a weekly flea market. I bought it cause I like the design. It looked comfortable yet functional. I just found it afterwards that some of the pockets with zippers are fake. There is pocket at near the right knee, a real pocket with zipper but I couln't find any opening and it didn't look like an unfinished design. Strange! The material are a mix of linen and other fibers. It felt nice, but after a few times of wearing, it started to feel rough and itchy, not because of dirty, but something like if I apply petroleum jelly and lanolin cream before I put my wool pants over (did it have happened to you?).

By the way, happy belated Mother's Day to all moms. I love my mom more than it may look like or I can express. She is at other side of the globe in my homeland. I don't have children nor pets but I wish you all, especially every mother much love and happiness. Take care!

Outfit:
Sunglasses: Firmoo.com, #FS04 Brown Acetate with brown tint sunglasses from Firmoo Classic Series, not available anymore but you can still check for another option or similar design.
Vintage print top: Thrifted. Label St. Chris (seems to be from Japan).
Visor cap: charity market. No label, T-shirt: MNG Jeans, pants: flea market, sneakers: ASICS, backpack: Kipling.

xo,
Naty

Blumenstadt



We are in Tulln. Blumenstadt: The city of flowers.
I made my self to get onto the hammock and have a good swing dizzy.
I am always amazed by trees and foliage.
Self-timer before the waterpark
Colorful floral print, pink scarf, and a smiley face under straw hat amongst yellow flowers.
I was lost in yellow.
So yellow round and around
Love the textures of my path.
Regentag by Friedensreich Hundertwasser
Spring Print! Floral and colorful!
3 scoops ice cream and chipped turquois nail polish.
My choies: Coconut, Mozart Kugel, and Chocolate Noir. Taste divine!
Tip: Usually you can get for € 1/ scoop, and there are few shops/cafes that sell ice cream and there are the one whic Lactose free, or Sorbet (the one like fruit juice, without milk)
Little me under sunshine
Lovely hood.
Lastly, selfie under pink blossoms.
Tip: go to Austria early Spring for plethora of Magnolias and Cherry Blossoms. They're gone fast, most of them won't last till middle of Spring.


~~~
Note: my floral print top is thrifted in Indonesia. Label St. Chris but the fabrics and care tag are written in Japanese so I can't say about that.

Oh well, I hope you all have a lovely weather lovely day :).

xo, Naty
