Ruffles... Better late than never, I suppose!

If you've been following me on twitter, you might remember the short dinner/meet-up with Grace and Aubrey from the AlterationsNeeded Forum about a week ago. Over a week ago, the Ann Taylor chiffon ruffle shells were a hot item in the petite community, as seen on Jean, Kelly, and Annie. Grace snagged a couple extra shells and I was fortunate enough to buy one from her! I'm often late in following trends (I didn't start wearing skinny jeans until about two years ago?!) or hopping on bandwagons for awesome deals. I'm glad I didn't miss out on this one!

Blazer: Theory Gabe B in 00 (altered)
Shell: Ann Taylor Factory Ruffle Shell in Soft Pewter, in XXSP
Slacks: Express Stylist in 0 short (altered) from 2006
Shoes: Nine West Suede Pumps in 6M
Wallet: Gucci Continental
Belt: H&M

More shots:

Yep, these Express pants are the infamous "$50 in alterations" that I've told my friends and a few fellow bloggers. It's unfortunate that I never took pre-tailoring pictures, as I had gotten it tailored before I started my blog. ;/
I'm still an amateur in photography as well as posing, so please bear with me as I stand or stare awkwardly. I also apologize for the glare, shadows, and sun rays in all the shots. ^^;; As much as I like stalking petite fashion blogs (yep, I admit to it!), I'm trying to develop my own natural set of expressions, so please look forward to them! :]

On another note, I was tagged by the fashionably petite Jessy in this post to post a baby picture. All my childhood photos are stowed away in various boxes, all of which I'm unable to locate as most of the boxes are taped and left unmarked. However, I did manage a picture of my preschool graduation when I was 5 years old:

Surprisingly, my dimple on my right cheek (left in this picture) was much larger when I was younger! I never noticed that until now. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!~
