Hi LOVEs!!!! Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a fun, awesome and safe Halloween! This year, I got to dress up two days in a row and celebrated it with my friends, and I really loved my costumes, which was a zombie gypsy princess and a mermaid hair cute bunny ( you can check both on my

INSTA

;) ) I really like being so creative in terms of hair and make-up, and I took advantage of my lovely mermaid hair color to create pink and purple color-mixed bunny ears!!

Now that it's November, I can' be more thrilled because my birthday is coming up in freaking TWO DAYS! I have no plan at this moment, though! haha What should I do? Also, I can't believe this year is O N L Y two more month left!

As the season shifts, I always love getting inspired by looking through all the seasonal trends, and one of the most appealing trends I wanted to try and sport is "

Nouveau Victorian

." Then, I came across this

gorgeous dress from

H&M

as I was hunting for a fall dress. Not only is the price super duper wall-friendly, I just also can't get over everything about

this dress

-- high-collar, ruffled, floral prints, and button details on the neck. Especially these ruffles are what make the dress so adorable. The length, of course, was not very flattering on me because of my height, so I had to adjust it with the wide belt. I styled it with a pair of red sandals since it was pretty warm when I shot this look, and I am glad I did! It shows that you can still wear sandals during fall while the look is totally fall appropriate.  I finished off by wearing my favorite

fall hat

and

berry lips

to emphasize the Victorian vibe. Light-curled side ponytail definitely gives some feminine flare along with the jeweled earrings! 

I can't wait to rock this dress, re-styling with more layering, autumn colored pieces, and fall boots! I actually made an outfit using

this dress

as a top, so stay turned for the look!

Have a great & productive Monday, my dolls!

Hi LOVEs!!!
 We are all so excited to see the streets covered up with beautiful orange leaves, and we definitely need more cozy knits, pretty coats, and OTK boots! I know, I know...! But it doesn't hurt anyone to dream of warmer weather with this amazing white dress, right? ( loving these dresses, here, here, here)  A few posts back, I shared this look where I wore this dress as a perfect midi lace skirt. Do you remember? So this is how the dress looks like, and I can't help but love its wide open-back detail. It's sexy yet lovely, which is perfectly wearable from day to night. Or even for a special occasion! Every girl needs a stunning white dress in her closet, and this number is definitely the one for me at the moment!!
I am so glad that big bring is back this season. I've seen that this dainty jewelry has been such a hot trend, and I've been embracing it! However, this fall & winter, oversized sparkling jewelry made its return! To be really honest with you, I am all about gorgeous statement jewelry, and my jeweled earrings bring this white dress look to a more glamorous and alluring level!
Midi length is sometimes very tricky to style in, especially if you are short like me. Paring nude heels is always the best solution. I love how this feminine look is changed up to be more edgy once putting on a biker jacket!! Which do you prefer, with or without?

Please take extra care guys, I got a cold yesterday and had to be in bed whole day to recover! No good!
Stay warm everyone!

Hi LOVEs!

How was your weekend? I really hope that you have started off this new week amazingly! If you follow me on social media, you have probably saw that I felt very ill yesterday when I woke up, and it was totally unexpected. In general, I am a very optimistic, cheerful, and positive person. I believe that my most charming characteristic is a BIG SMILE! (I hope you agree with me <3 ) Yet, sometimes it is just really hard to stay positive and to believe in myself. Concerns eat away at me - I haven been single for almost three years now, my whole family lives a million miles away, and even though I have amazing friends here, I still have days when I feel a deep loneliness. The reality is that my parents are not 100% supportive of me pursing my fashion dream in America. I know, it's kinda sad, right? I frequently wish for them to be more supportive of what I am passionate about. My parents' happiness is my happiness. Of course I wanna make them happy. But my decision to go for my dream has resulted in making them very unhappy. As such, I then feel that I am such a bad daughter because I choose my dream over my parents happiness... At one point, I made my parents cry... That's one of the worst moments in my life.

Then, yesterday I fell apart completely, and naturally I burst into tears due to my deep feelings of hopelessness, loneliness, and the extreme struggles that I have to go through as a foreigner. Even though I am happy to finally be able to stand on my feet and pursue my dream after such hard decisions, I have been struggling with not being able to share and talk about these struggles with my beloved family. This cycle of success followed by regret constantly torments me.

Nonetheless, I realized yesterday that I have a lot of friends, my fans and followers who sincerely care about me and even believe in me more that I do. Receiving heartfelt comments, snaps, and messages really brightened up my worst moment and saved from deep devastation. They are all so sweet, and I felt very loved and sensed a great amount of compassion. It made me feel so much better, and I was able to have a good cry. I actually thought that I should not share my negativity on social media because I knew I might end up giving people an unfavorable moment. However, some of them shared their stories of how they had been in the same shoes and of their struggles. One of my friends came over and gave me tight hugs, and then took me out for dinner and coffee. On the way home, we saw the most beautiful rainbow that I have ever seen! Seeing such a rainbow was as if the universe was telling me: "don't lose hope; you will be fine!" It was a breathtaking moment.

Although I don't have a boyfriend or family close to me, I couldn't be happier and more appreciative to have those people in my life, especially on my blogging journey. I really wanted to thank all of them including YOU who come to read my blog, leave comments and support me with lots of love!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS! I seriously can't thank you enough! 

Life isn't only about happy things and isn't always smooth and pleasant. It may not go however you are wishing it to. Some of you may be struggling or suffering over tons of stuff more than your surroundings. Then you may have to confront countless obstacles that easily put you down. However struggling with problems makes you stronger. The most challenging times are opportunities for us to realize moments change, and great struggles enable us to attain immense good fortune. Those who have experienced great suffering can develop into outstanding people. Those who have undergone painful trails can help many others. Such difficult moments intensify the happy moments. The key is to take one step, even half a step, toward what you are going for, no matter whoever stands in front of you disagreeing and preventing from your dream. And all you need to do is to have courage and get back up whenever you fall down. I know as long as you keep fighting through, you can definitely win!

 Okay, now onto today's look! I wore this look for my friend's birthday party, but this wasn't how I normally dress up for one. It's good to change up your tendencies and try something you don't generally do.

I am so glad I chose

this cute tribal print dress from

SheIn

for the occasion. I haven't worn this print for a long time, and finally I get to play with some prints over plain clothes! I think the print will never go out of style, and the color of this dress is very fall-ready, plus it's long sleeve! I like the wide cut in front. This dress actually has pockets, but I totally forgot to photograph the details! I am always in love with a dress with pockets! Even though it came in a small size, I am super petite. So I had to adjust the length by adding a belt to make it more fitting and flattering! Paring it with my favorite fringe sandals adds a touch of playfulness, and I am pleased that I managed to create a color-blocking ensemble with these sandals, a 

red mini bag

and

burgundy sunnies

in addition to my mermaid hair! I am back to rocking 

statement earrings

because

that's one of the trend this fall/winter

.  I am not ready to say good bye to summer just yet, but doing our homework on what's coming next and starting to incorporate the trends into the current looks definitely help us prepare for the new season!

Thanks for reading today's long post, and I really do hope that you could relate to what I have experienced and that I inspired you somehow! And of course hopefully you enjoy today's look as well!

If you ever want to vent, please remember that I am here for you. You are not the only one who going through a lot!

Much love, AikA ❤︎
