Risky Business

How was Christmas, bloggers? Mine was simple but lovely. Although Christmas is over, I hope everyone stay in the spirit of Christmas throughout the year. Stay full of love, full of compassion, and never lose the desire to give. You give until it hurts, and then.. you give some more. I think as a Christian, we are obligated to be the person who take the high roads. And we know, the high road is high. You can't get into high places without sweat and the energy wasted to climb. 

As for the outfit, a little bird once told me to not mix two trendy items in one outfit. That's why I think my outfit today is super risky! But as the saying said it, "The persons who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing." - Leo F. Buscaglia. So I thought I just go for it!

Animal prints and skirts with tails are hot this season! Or is it last season? I don't really pay attention actually but since you all are so stylish, I couldn't help but notice :)
I always wanted to try this kind of skirt and when I saw it in maroon color, I just knew that I have to have it. Long story short, here it is, safe and sound in my closet. I am completely head over heels with the color and the chiffon fabric. And when I walk, it flows!! Swoon..  I wonder why it took me so long to try this kind of skirt!
As for the animal prints, I always thought I could never pull off any kind of animal prints except in small quantities. Like a scarf or a pair of shoes (will show my leopard shoes soon! <3) but when my mom bought it for me, I couldn't resist. Who doesn't love free stuff? Score! I do feel a little bit like Jane tho! And with the green background, all I need is a shirtless man with a rope and I'm all set! :D

I feel like posing cool today but failed miserably.. 

I hope this doesn't look too weird for you! I personally like the way it turns out, how the brown in the animal prints seem to compliment the maroon color. 
Anyway, 2011 will soon be over. It's the time to look back and reflect on everything that has happened. The following year will be better if we determined enough to make it better :)
