Pink, pink, pink




necklace: c/o oasap// skirt: forever 21// shoes: payless// top: gift from friend

So I received a few (two) questions about the style challenge thing so I will answer them now :)
1. Yes to polyvore sets.
2. All kinds black skirts (even with a print) can be used. 

In these pictures it almost looks like I am not wearing braces. YAY. I cannot wait to get them off. When I first got my braces, I had the thin kind of wire that came out easily and  the first  time the wire came out, which happened a week after I got my braces, it was because of pretzels. And I am not talking about those salty and boring pretzels, I am talking about the delicious Trader Joe's (a grocery store) holiday peppermint bark thin pretzels that were very very very yummy. Anyways, my orthodontist asked me what I ate to make the wire come out. Here's how the conversation went:

Orthodontist: What did you eat to make the wires come out? 
me: ... (guilty face).....peppermint pretzels....
orthodontist: OH.my.goodness.Do you mean the trader joe's peppermint pretzels?
me: yes...
orthodontist: Those pretzels are sooooo good, I have a bag of them in my office. YUM. But you are not allowed to eat them okay? *continues to list foods I am not supposed to eat*

-the end-

haha so now they remember me as the pretzel eating girl.

  1. Lol, that conversation between you and your orthodontist is so cute! I haven't seen my orthodontist in a while. That reminds me, where did I put my retainers? I haven't seen them in months. Lol. Luckily I have those wires glued behind my teeth...

    I love your shoes BTW!

  6. I never realized you had braces, you really can't even remotely see them!

    I am just soooooo in love with these colors together. The soft blush pink top, those pretty, pretty shoes and that bright pleated skirt, ooooh! That top is beyond fantastic, it looks like it has a high-low hem. (Or maybe that's because it's tucked in?) I just love how long it is in the back,with the hem of the blouser almost touching the hemline of the skirt. (And those payless shoes look so fantastic on you! Getting them in the beige color was really smart, I always want to buy shoes in a neutral color and then end up with the brightest ones possiable! :P )

  14. LOL! No soup for you! Aww...I'm sorry you can't eat the pretzels. I feel so darn lucky to never have needed braces. Two of my sisters had them and I had to watch them both miss out on certain foods for a few years. But eat all of those pretzels when your teeth are free!!! :) Love the pink, and yay for your new payless shoes! They look great on you! <3

  16. Firstly, regarding your comment in my blog - you don't need to diet so it's okay that you faied that one haha I, however, seriously need to lose some weight. Secondly, how freaking hilarious was this convo between you and your dentist. Quite hilarious, quite. And I love your outfit here, but I always LOVE your outfits..

    ReplyDelete
  17. the story about the wires is simply brilliant! I can totally imagine how the conversation went, hehe. anyway, your outfit is wonderful of course since I really like pink. and what a beautiful necklace!
    btw, what about a situation where I have already made the post with a black & white look.. I made it when I didn't know about your challenge here. can I just point out that you are holding the challenge and maybe simply refer to my post I made earlier? gosh, it's difficult to describe the actual situation :D but I could add the info in a new post I'm going to make soon.

  26. I love the long tail shirt. And those shoes are adorable.
    I got my braces off last August. I had the thin wire ones too. Once my orthodontist was positioning the brackets and I came back the next day and four had fallen off. Apparently, he forgot to dry the glue.

  32. Joyce. Girl, seriously you have skillz in the skirt/shoe/accessory picking department. Once again, I'm in ENVY. I did see a pair of heels like that at F21, so now I'm going to have to jet back over there and grab them, jeez you're such an enabler, lol. Now that you've OK'ed printed black skirts, I'll be posting my own combo in the next couple of days :) Your orthodontist sounds like a cool bean, especially if both of you enjoy the same snacks.

    xoxo,

  35. :) Great story! I was just sitting on my couch, having a mini meltdown because I tried to trim my bangs and as usual they came out all uneven and wonky. I've had them for over a year and I still can't get it right. But when I read your story, I actually let out a little laugh despite myself.
    Thank you Joyce, I really needed that.
    I'm sorry that little pick-me-up came at the expense of your braces-induced prohibited food list, though.
    On a happier note, you look pretty in pink! And your necklace is lovely, too. What a great choice!

  39. Hahahaha! Your pretzel story seriously made me laugh xD That's just cruel of the orthodontist to say though! Haha, and mmmmm, I wish we had a Trader Joe's nearby so I could hunt down these delicious sounding pretzels...aha, that chain of store hasn't reached us :/ I remember it though. We always snatch up goodies from there whenever we visit Cali!
    Anyway, about your outfit, I LOVE the girly mix of pink. Your skirt is so perfectly pleated and lovely.
    I'm planning on putting up a post for your style challenge this weekend :)

  61. LOL I had braces when I was 13 and did the same thing too - but not on pretzels, I can't remember what I ate for the wire to dislocate LOL at the time I hoped he would just remove them completely but alas he did not. Hopefully they'll be off soon, I know how annoying they are. I love your shirt and the half tucked in look on you. It's effortless cool - just like you!
