Something Frilly, Something Fishy

I spotted this skirt a few weeks ago and didn't want to try it on at first. I'm glad I did because it was love at first try right at the dressing room! The ruffles and the way the chiffon hugs my curves, they're an instant prettifier!

It was such a steal as the dress version of it was still selling for $350 at!

(End of the "frilly" post)

N ow on the "fishy" side, I'm just so jealous of Thumbelina's recent post about her $15pp 4-course brunch! In my neck of the woods, if I wanted a 4-course meal for $15, I'll have to cook it myself.

Just one shrimp tempura roll is usually at least $15; throw in a few sashimi and sushi and it'll cost you a skirt - a Carmen Marc Valvo chiffon ruffle skirt!!

One of our fave sushi places here is Wasabi.
We are regulars at this place ever since it opened 3 years ago.

They fly in their fish daily and that probably accounts for half of the cost of the items in their menu!

Too bad you can't fish salmon, white tuna and squid from lakes because we have 10,000 of those!!

Wishing everyone a happy work week ahead from the "land of 10,000 lakes" and expensive sushi!! =)


  1. Hi there! Love the frilly skirt and especially love chiffon fabric! I think this material complements my body type nicely so lots of my clothes are chiffon actually.

    You're so right...Japanese food dining in the city is never $15 dollars. Miss Bangkok where Japanese food was cheaper so I could eat it every day.

    Great outfit!

  2. Had to smile about your "land of expensive sushi" ;)

    The skirt version looks so much better on you with the black tee and black heels than the dress version!! GORGEOUS!!!

    Wishing you a wonderful enchanting week ahead!

  3. Can I steal your outfit?! It's GORGEOUS! So something I would wear. Yeah, I know about the deal...pretty amazing. I don't know how they make money that way. This place looks great though...yum yum. I can't resist good sushi.
