Fashion Friday: Lapis Lazuli

Blue used to be my favourite colour when I was younger, and I would buy a lot of clothes and accessories that were blue. I loved every shade. I wear a lot less blue clothing now, and I think I prefer deeper, darker blues as opposed to light colours.

I’m wearing a new top for this outfit that is a dark blue, and almost has a tinge of purple in it. Thus I named it Lapis Lazuli.


My mum still picks out a lot of my clothes – I don’t often get a chance to shop, and I don’t really like shopping for clothes (yep, I sound spoilt) – this top is one of them. It’s a simple, sleeveless number, but it’s really nice. I really love the skirt as well, which stretches just enough to fit, and it feels rather snug. I like the cut as well, which dips a little at the back. It’s slightly asymmetrical but looks quite cool.

One new part of my outfit is the black heels. I am exceptionally happy with them. I was in a shoe store and found the exact same simple black heels I bought a year ago and damaged (while dancing, nonetheless). I wanted to buy the same pair again but I shopped around and then found these heels. The style is Minnie, which I immediately assumed was inspired by Minnie Mouse because of the frills on the back of the heels.

The shoes were on sale and did have my size available, so I bought them! They are really comfortable and oh-so-cute. I feel like that is the most girly thing I have said all year. :P I am in love with the shoes though – I think they are marvellous, they are very comfortable considering they are a pair of heels.

Rings, rings, shiny things! Now, while I have bought lots of ring sets at once, this set of purple is my favourite. I like the gold tone, and the purple and lavender acrylic stones. All the rings in the set go nicely together.

I painted my nails red, which is my favourite colour now, and has been for a few years. I used a polish from YSL, which dried quicker than I last remembered. It also stayed on for quite a while and didn’t chip easily. Or maybe I just applied the non-chip top coat better.

The black jacket is my new favourite piece to wear. Other than the fact that it has pockets, I love the fit and the mix of corduroy-style and leather-like fabric. The pockets fit my iPhone 5c (but not an iPhone 6, I tried) and my access card for work.

I bought the spiky cuff from eBay. The stone is more of a green-blue aqua colour. I am not sure what drew me to the cuff, but I liked that it had a bit of a girly edge. I’ve seen spiky cuffs made of plastic or acrylic stones, attached to fake leather bands, but I liked this one because it was made of some kind of metal.

I usually wear a silver Guess watch, but I discovered that I had a gold one of the same brand that I had never worn. I like skinny watches because they fit and feel better on my skinny wrists. The gold one does look a bit more classy than the silver one.

Let me know what you think of today’s outfit; I know it’s back to more professional work clothes again after last edition, but I just wanted to share my new pieces. Thank you again to Seb for doing a marvellous job with the photos!

What is your favourite colour? Do you have any new items of clothing you’ve loved to wear lately?

I love the color of that top! A little too purpley for me to want to wear, but it’s lovely! Blue used to be my favorite color too (thank you, Blue Power Ranger) and I was always told it was a boy’s color. Okay then 🙄 I do like darker blues, though, like midnight and royal and navy. I bought a black and royal blue dress from H&M while I was living in China but I haven’t worn it yet. I should soon, seeing as how it was really my boyfriend who bought it for me, but I hate the way my arms look. O_O

I love that jacket too. It’s pretty badass ;) I saw some similar to yours in a shop down the street from my house, available in black/red and black, but it’s a bit more biker in style. It’s pretty neat but it didn’t fit quite right on me. I’m starting to think maybe my shoulders are more broad than I think… 😢

That skirt is seriously sassy; I could never pull that off! And I can’t help but wince looking at the heels. They always seem so painful on one’s feet no matter what. I have vowed never to wear heels; I’m scared I’ll topple over (which is actually extremely likely, my balance can be off sometimes). I love boots, though, and recently I realized I love combat/military-style boots! I bought a pair a little over a month ago and have received endless compliments, so a couple of weeks ago I bought a second pair in dark brown /eee

I’m not one for accessories (which is a shame, seeing as how I spent a lot of money on various cuffs and bands and necklaces when I was younger), and my ear piercings closed up because I forgot to bring some earrings with me to China and, well, it inevitably happened. But I love rings. I want more and I want to get them off Etsy, but it’s so hard finding metal rings that are perfect in style (for me) and affordable. ;3;

I love this outfit and all the accessories! You really have good taste in clothes and you coordinate everything so well. That’s something I could never do, so I’m glad you share your fashion photos to give us folks who are not fashion-inclined for ideas.

I especially love all your jewelleries. Are they all real? I’m only asking because I discovered I have skin allergies to many of the fake jewelleries metal, so I can only stick with sterling silver, gold, and platinum. :( That really limits me from purchasing cheap jewelleries!

But going back to your ensemble — it’s really great. I do also like how you keep your clothes simple, and you up your appearance with accessories. Just fabulous! ^^

Your accessories are always my favorite part about your outfits. I really like your watch. :D

I used to like yellow a lot when I was a kid. Yellow all the things! But recently, I’ve been loving mint green and blue. A lot of my stuff now is blue. I always lean towards blue gadgets, blue phone cases, blue clothes… you can say, I’ve blued myself. :P

i used to love blue so much too. i wanted everything to be blue, from head to toe haha. weird because now, i’m all for the monotonous, especially white. i have too many white shirts O_O i still love blue but not the vibrant kind. i have changed into someone who favors darker colors more, i guess. for instance, i prefer navy blue skinny jeans than the usual blue jeans. i find the normal blue jeans boring? the only light colored jeans i have would be the white washed, i guess XD that’s for the pants; however, when it comes to shirts (especially graphic tees), i don’t mind the lighter shades of blue.

still, 80-90% of the stuff i own in my wardrobe would be…uh white-black and skinny jeans /snort nowadays, i try to expand my collection with some colors though….for the graphic tees, that is.

cute shoes ;) as of now, i’m not in love with kitten heeled shoes as i prefer uh taller ones like platform heeled boots or platform shoes 😏 when i wear them, they boost my confidence for being taller… /bounce honestly, my mother is actually asking how on earth did i manage to wear them because she thought i needed to be trained on how to walk in something that is more than 3 inches high. she thought i needed to wear something with short heels first before progressing even further. turned out i managed to handle a 11cm boots….. uh…. but sneakers are forever the best yeah~

i like your nails too! red nails are fierce and badass haha.. sadly i always go for black…or white…again…wow i’m so boring haha

this is a good ootd especially for work. i like how you always spice things up with your accessories. i like that you keep your attire simple from head to toe so we can all focus on your collection of accessories there /eee

as for your question, my favorite is actually…uh a tie between white and keppel (or tiffany blue. i honestly can’t pick!) but i usually warm up to some colors if they look good on the products too. for instance, i don’t mind buying pink shirt if the shade of pink is the one i’m okay with. i also happen to love pastel colors :P for sneakers though, i like colors that catch people’s attention….neon colors on sneakers for example; sometimes they can look badass too haha

You are absolutely gorgeous, Georgie! :D Everything you have on are flawless, especially the rings :) You’re my new fashion inspiration :D My favorite colors is sky blue, pink and black (but if I were to choose one then it would really be just sky blue, haha). I recently love to shop at Forever 21. At the moment, I don’t have a Forever 21 in my city but it’s coming soon by December according to the app the mall I usually go to. So I had to go to the next town that does have it and I would by it from there. I haven’t really done a proper shopping there since the few times I went there, I had to dress up for a funeral. But when the store finally opens in my city, I’ll do a regular shopping spree there, haha. /mwah

Beautiful pictures, as usual, Georgie!
I loved that skirt you wore, it is truly pretty.
I have always loved wearing blue, but now a days the only blue that I have is my jeans! my tops are mostly in the shades of white, pink or black…. and also suddenly my collection of traditional-but-casual Indian kurtis has increased.
I am not overly fond of rings, which may be because of the fact that I have to wear two stone rings constantly and then wearing some other rings looks a bit too much. :P
But saying that, your rings always make me jealous :D and I feel like buying a few all the time :D :D
