Put some sparkle onto your outfit and you can take any outfit from drab to fab. I always do this whenever I’m in a simple dress and I’m too lazy to change for an event later in the day. It’s a quick and easy way to glam anything up!
This time around, I decided to try this trick on something different: basic knit shirts! I used to always wear basic knit shirts like this back in college. I was channeling Mischa Barton circa The O.C when Marissa Cooper hasn’t gone coo coo yet. I loved wearing them because they’re so comfy and preppy. Plus, they’re casual but not too casual to be considered inappropriate for school. I always wore them with super basic shorts, pants or skirts though. I never really tried turning them into something dressy.
So here’s how I turned my casual knit top into something a little bit dressier: lots of bling, a tulle skirt, a nice looking bag and a cute little bun. If you noticed, my top and skirt are actually matching, polka dots all the way!
Tulle skirts can make anything look dreamy, sweet and feminine. I love them!

To make my look even sweeter, I accessorized with a pretty charm bracelet I picked out from Thomas Sabo. Instead of the usual silver charms, I went with the pearl charms to make my bracelet look dainty. The pearl charms I chose are the one with a diamond cross, another with a diamond shoe, another with a nice little ribbon like my blog’s logo and the last with a silver heart that has the word “LOVE” engraved on it. Sigh. Charm bracelets are really so… charming. I apologize for the lack of a better word, but they really are!!! They can get addicting!

Again, most of the items I’m wearing here are available at SM Mall of Asia (MOA) which is already on a mall-wide sale for up to 70% off, starting today until Sunday. The mall is open everyday until 12 midnight for the big MOA sale so there is a lot of time for you to shop to your heart’s content, like how I did below har har!
