today's look: in Swatch (+plus an international GIVEAWAY)

you already know how much i love pink :)
swatch korea sent me this watch (and +1 for you lucky reader!)
and i wanted to share and discuss with you
what's going to be the hottest item for this upcoming spring

it already feels like half spring and half winter here
so my outfits will look kind of an in-between the seasonal looks

this new line for the spring 11 is called
which is basically a lady-like lovely pastel colors
(available in 10 different shades to choose from)
that is able to wrap your wrist around in double straps
just like the same as if you would wear two bangles/bracelets

it was really long so i liked it better to wear it
out on my outfits rather than to wear it on my skin
because i have kind of a small wrist so everything is loose around me....

you already saw this outfit from yesterday's
GoJane review (leopard wedge bootie)
i personally loved wearing my watch in a similar tone to purple with that urban outfitters sweater
but my mom thought it would look better with black top
because then the watch will be more visible

i like it worn with just about anything
because it's a simple yet versatile look

after coming back from wearing this sweater
the hairs were all stuck in that rubber-like band?
but it was so easy to take it off
and thankfully it didn't get dyed in black or purple-ish
*but before you know it for sure
watch out for just bought jeans or sequined tops because the color fades naturally and ruins all of your other bags and etc.

the look without the coat

rather than to wear it all in nude or light colors
i decided to go bright and bold in red this day

i always am uncertain if the look is correct or not
just by the look i can't tell
i can't tell if the colors match
and honestly i really don't care
because we all need to take risks and experiment with every possibility we face with
so this is why i just wore items by following my heart today
I always thought yellow and pink would look so childish together
but from today's outfit i thought it was quite okay

i think it's because the watch color is light and balances it with my coat's darker shade

let's start the fun part:
new giveaway
and it's opened to anyone living in any country

today's look: in GoJane

how do you love my leopard print wedge bootie? :)
it's 4.25 inches high (according to the web description)
which is 10.795 or rounded to 11 cm however you prefer the conversion
leopard was so hot since last fall and winter and I don't regret to follow that trend even now in 2011

the color appeared exactly the same as i've first seen from
(here it looks lighter because of the setting)
and that's really an important part of online shopping
to get the right color from the screen so the shoppers get the expected result

I was at the department store (called Shinsegae)
and everyone I know talked about my shoes first
here in Korea, just like anywhere else probably
women are sooo into fashion and style
they especially love the bold, edgy and fierce looks
and I think this wedge looked powerful to them as well

the appearance: I usually wear size 7 1/2 or 38 for boots because that's what I heard as I should do. go a one size bigger for boots because you get swollen feet
so when I was looking at the size chart at gojane,
the sizes were to my understanding a one size bigger than in my perspective (I usually think 37 is for 7 and 38 is for 8 and so on.. which is 250 mm for 8)
so that's where I decided to try a size 7
I knew that it'll be okay even if it's the normal size 7
(because I wear 7 for flats and 7 1/2 for heels, sneakers and etc.)
then I can just take a short trip walking.

so when I first opened up my box, I thought this looked way too small
just by the first appearance i mean..
but when I tried it on
it was just like a 38 version perfectly having a little space for me to breathe

*i didn't know but today i heard that
normally a wedge heels look smaller than the other type of shoes*

the rubber platform made me easy to walk in and to feel comfort even in above 10 cm height
it wasn't a heavy shoe
but it was strong enough to hold me tight when i was walking down a slightly bented hill, i didn't trip down or anything like that to embarrass myself

dior sunglasses, zara bag, forever21 skinny jeans, urban outfitters hooded sweater, american eagle long sleeve shirt, Jindo fur coyote fur vest, gifted swatch double strap watch in pastel pink, clue necklace, earrings i made myself, and bootie gifted from

another reason i usually go for a one size bigger for boots:
i have kind of a wide feet
not so wide but.. because of my bone structure where it's sticking out a bit?
i have a hard time walking in heels and in flats that has narrow width

this is how it appeared from the site
leopard print wedge bootie $34.99 -> now on sale $25.95

furry tassel keychain $15.60

futuristic chain trim sunglasses $7.40
[looks like it can be worn as a necklace right?

because I'm so in love with that Louis Vuitton one]
