red-eyed hoodies and neon elephants

I arrived home late one night and was given these two packages by our guard. I wasn't expecting anything so I was pleasantly surprised not just by the gifts but by not having to pay duties as well. Last time I received a Fedex package from Hong Kong, I had to pay around $25 in taxes.

Turns out, the two packages were orders that I recently made from Persunmall and Chicnova. It normally takes about a month for my clothes to arrive when I order from sites similar to theirs but these only took about a week or less and I didn't have to pay anything extra. Now, that is something, don't you think? Not only do these sites carry extremely fashion forward pieces, they're also very affordable and now, also very accessible.

So, what exactly did I get? 

First up are these 2 pieces from Persunmall. I have been so addicted to origami skirts and skorts lately. Already have them in black and white but I wanted more so I immediately snatched up this blue pair of skorts the minute I saw it. The fit is fantastic and blue is supposedly a big color this F/W 2013 so I imagine a lot of wear and tear out of this. Plus it also goes so well with the next thing I picked up...

 How cool is this Keep Watch! hoodie in red???  I can't think of anything more street than this. Pair with minimalist sandals and shorts/pencil skirt for an automatic luxe sports look or with ripped boyfriend jeans and pumps for a chill outfit that's still classy.

 And last but definitely not the least, this adorable neon print elephant sweater from Chicnova. I've always had a thing for elephants. Not sure if it's cause of Dumbo but I can't seem to resist these creatures. 

I was especially drawn to this sweater because of its fit. It's slightly oversized but not entirely shapeless and its also very, very cozy. There's something about a knit sweater that nevers fails to make me feel safe and all loved up. Plus, being black with just a little pop of color makes it a no-brainer to match with other pieces already existing in my closet.


I like the elephant ones!!!:D
