"Figure skater much?"

I picked up this lovely little dress in the sale section of Express a few weeks ago. It was the last of its kind. How lucky am I? It was exactly what I was looking for! Next thing on my list is a pair of hot pink opaque tights to go with it.

(I was wearing the bow in my hair earlier but forgot to put it back on for the outfit photos, so iMac photos will have to do)

I made this bow last year in my sewing class. Its just a tied ribbon with a random button glued to an old hair clip. Its kind of big and floppy, but that's what I love so much about it. I didn't even mind the weird looks I got all day, and someone telling me that Halloween wasn't for another 2 weeks. Ha! The ring is from a trip to Mexico a few years ago.

On a more sad note, Topshop NYC isn't going to open for another few months. I'm so sad! I've been saving up for it =[

Eelie tagged me for "favourites tag" (oh yes, I'm spelling it like the English). So here I go:

Clothes Shop: It's a hard choice...either H&M or Urban Outfitters
Sweet: Smarties (not the chocolate ones), Sweet Tarts, Nerds
City: Hmm. Paris, New York, London, and Tel Aviv
Drink: Its usually Snapple Lemon Iced Tea...but right now its YooHoo (or Choco Be Sakeet if you are Israeli)
Music: The Hush Sound and Jack's Mannequin
TV Series: Heroes, Ugly Betty, Monk, My Name is Earl
Film: Alice in Wonderland, The Day After Tomorrow, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Terminal, War of the Worlds, Atonement, MATILDA
Workout: Biking and hiking....ha
Pastries: Croissant, Baklava, Cookies, APPLE PIEEEE
Coffee: yughh. I'm a tea person. A strong English Breakfast with some milk and a lot of sugar will do.

I tag Anna, and Belle.

Oh YAY! I'm glad you did it. Its so nice getting to know some of you blogging beauties that little bit more :)

Smarties come in a different variety than the chocolate? lol . HUUUGE question mark lies beside my head now lol.

And yes, very much figure-skater-esque.
