How to Style a Cold Shoulder Dress- featuring Rosegal

One of my favourite trends lately is the cold-shoulder trend. I've been trying to change my style a bit for the last few months into something more carefree, innocent and summery. I live in Hong Kong, and right now it's terribly hot. Everyone's either wearing t-shirts or shorts, and I've been trying hard to find a style that makes the normal, boring t-shirt stand out.

The cold-shoulder style is one of my new favourites because of it's youthful and stylish look. Cold-shoulder tops are perfect for the summer because they give off a cool and young vibe, great for oldies like me who want to look younger! Cold-shoulder dresses are also super girly and trendy, and they're very comfortable!

Isn't the piece above fantastic? I've been obsessed with the colour white recently, which is why I bought a dress from Rosegal with a cold-shoulder. Rosegal is a great little shop that sells a variety of dresses and clothing which fits a more youthful and girly style. They sell so many cold-shoulder clothing too, so it's definitely worth checking out. 

I've tried it on it's absolutely top quality, which is a pleasant surprise because this dress is really affordable. The cutting also fits really well. I really like the lace design and the white, loose chiffon material which the dress is made from. Here are several ways you can style a cold-shoulder dress or top! 

1. Pair the cold shoulder dress with shorts- you can tuck it in to make a chic, off-shoulder bohemian look and pair it with ripped denim shorts. Super casual and stylish, yet fun at the same time. Pair it with a large floppy hat and sunglasses, and you'll look like a more stylish version of everyone around you. The cold shoulder top balances off the hardness of the hat and your shorts.

2. Wear it with a denim jacket - this balances out the girly feel of the dress with a tougher denim look, making it great for a first date outfit or a casual lunch outfit! It's such a casual and flirty outfit, and the blue and white colour scheme goes very well together.

3. Pair a cold shoulder top with a skirt- a more formal and preppy style, pairing the cold shoulder with a skirt is extra sexy because it shows both your shoulders and your legs. This will be a great outfit for a date if you want to dress to impress! Style it up with lots of glittery accessories and stroppy heels and you're totally ready to go.

Vintage glasses from GlassesShop

I'm a huge fan of vintage glasses, large black-rimmed glasses and eyewear in general, and I know some of you are huge vintage fans! A nice pair of glasses helps to hide flaws, hide puffy eyes and also makes your outfit complete in many cases. Anyhow, I really want to share with you an awesome online store called GlassesShop, which sells a variety of prescription glasses frames (with lenses included) for an affordable price. 

It's a stark fact that it isn't easy to find cheap eyeglasses in real life shops these days. Most of the shops on high street sells glasses for a really high price, which makes people like me with horrible eyesight cringe at the thought of buying a new pair of glasses. 

The most important thing when buying glasses is finding the right frame for your face shape. Not everyone can pull of large frames that cover half of your face, but not many people can pull off tiny invisible frames or the like. I've used many years to experiment with trying on many different types of glasses and seeing which one fits my face. 

GlassesShop sells so many glasses of all shapes and sizes, and they even have a try-on feature which allows users to upload their own photos and virtually try on many frames. 


I love my pair of Fresno Clip On Tortoiseshell glasses so much! I'm going to wear them everyday to class, because I want to look vintage and presentable in lectures. The greatest thing about my new glasses are that they can double up as prescription sunglasses because a magnetic clip-on sunglasses lenses are included with this particular frame. It looks like I'm wearing a cooler version of Ray Bans! How cool is that? 

Lastly, GlassesShop has kindly given all of you lovely readers a special coupon code GSHOT50 for their shop so you can have 50% off on eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses included! You can also get a first pair free since they're having a big promotion right now. 

What do you think of my new glasses?

Emoji tank tops go great with a pair of denim jean shorts, and they look effortlessly stylish because of the graphic-tee feel you get with the many emojis on the tank.

Using Lip Concealer to create Korean Lips

If you've got naturally dark red lips like myself, you might find yourself with a problem: How do I wear red or pink lipstick without making your lip seem too garish or dark? The recent trends on lip makeup are pale lips, or pinky-red lips, just like those you see on Korean drama celebrities. I've always wanted to re-create their look as I think it looks so innocent and pretty, but I'm always faced with the problem of my too-dark lips, which makes putting any kind of lipstick very difficult.

Bornpretty Store, an online fashion, jewellery and accessories store was nice enough to send me some lip concealer (along with other goodies) to try, and I have to say that the results are fantastic. I didn't take pictures for the fear of scaring you, but I found some similar images that show the effects of lip concealer. Take a look below!


They're also kind enough to send me some wispy, imitation Ardell eyelashes, which are stunning and beautiful. I haven't tried it on yet, but they're of good quality and they even come with sticky ends so I didn't even need glue! I love falsies, especially when they're worn correctly. I'll show you these lashes when I wear them to my university dinner soon, along with the lovely pearl earrings they sent me!

What do you think of Korean lips?
