Borneo Wear: Bold Neon Aztec Print (It’s My Birthday!)

What can I say? I am still liking my prints! I saw this dress on Gossips Boutique, a Malaysian fashion boutique a few weeks ago and I simply couldn’t resist. So much so that I ended up buying both colours! One in bold (above) and the other in pastel. I also like the skinnier neckline, which shows off a bit of the shoulders so this dress is a big plus in my wardrobe!

Being naturally tanned due to my mixed-blood heritage (trust me, this is not a great trait to have especially if you live in Asian countries where paler skin is considered more beautiful – fortunately I’ve grown out of this concept and ignore remarks about my skin colour), I was somewhat hesitant when I received this dress because the pink was really quite, quite bold. I thought that it might look gaudy on me. However, I still wore it out last night and the pictures don’t look too bad… At least with so much going on, I didn’t have to accessorise at all! WIN! ๐Ÿ˜€

When I first dip-dyed my hair, I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to match clothes to my hair! In the beginning I was wearing different combinations of clothing but after a while I realised that I shouldn’t let my hair dictate my clothing ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dress: Gossips Boutique; Cardigan: Cotton On; Bag: 11″ Silver Metallic Cambridge Satchel; Heels: Aldo; Skinny belt: H&M; Nails: DIY tutorial soon!

Oh, and it’s my birthday today! ๐Ÿ˜€ I turn…24 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I don’t seem to feel older, or like a woman yet for that matter. I’m just an unemployed Borneoan girl who is a Bar postgraduate indulging in DIY projects and Fashion. I’m finally getting Called to the Bar (graduation for students completing the Bar course) at Lincoln’s Inn in London at the end of this month and hopefully after that I will be employed…

I’d like to give my thanks and appreciation to every single reader here too, thank you for your support and lovely comments! I’m delighted that currently I have 84 followers on this blog, and 106 followers on my WIWT (What I Wore Today) page! I don’t bother about numbers as much now but still, the digits are always very fun to look at ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a great weekend everyone! xx

    • Thanks Jen!! Ahhh tight shorter dresses fare well with these thunder things, compared to figure hugging maxi dresses! Also, the cardigan helped slightly ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks I had a great chilledout day with the family it’s been a while since I last spent my birthday with them! Hehehe thanks for the congrats, now it’s time to look for a job! ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Ei Saran wonderful dress and I honestly really like naturally tanned skin..I’m just the opposite, but everybody knows that we always want what we don’t have :D. Happy birthday girl! enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Grazie Marinella! Hahaha you are so right, many Europeans prefer tanned skin while Asians prefer fairer skin! We’ll never be satisfied ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you for the wish! ๐Ÿ˜€
