LOTD: Korean Drama My Princess Inspired Outfit + Hair

As today I am going to watch the last episode of the Korean drama My Princess, I was really in a My Princess mood this morning.

Sadly, I do not look like beauty Kim Tae Hee in any way, but today I picked an outfit that was close to the feel I got from her dressing in My Princess. If I could, I would have picked a lacy cotton tank for the top (unfortunately, not suitable for work)/ a sleeveless lace shirt.

Cotton top, ballerina-look lace skirt

To show the skirt's swir-li-ness, I tried swirling in front of my MacBook, not to much success, as you can see...

I completed the look with a pair of off white round toe heels.

Apologies for my tired look... well... I am indeed really tired...

Hey! My hair is about the same length as Kim Tae Hee in My Princess~

A jewel hairband

In the show, Kim Tae Hee usually pins her fringe up; but as mine is still short, I kept it down.

As for make up, I wanted some contrast with my dark colored outfit, so I chose a bright eyeshadow palette, Majolica Majorca Majolook eye shadow palette PK740. I applied the pink to the outer crease, and silverish blue/ purple to the inner crease. Then I tight-lined my upper lash line with brown pencil eyeliner, and went over the line with the brownish red eye shadow from the palette. I lined 3/4 of my lower lash line with the same brown after that. I then finished off with lots of black mascara. In order for your eye look to be really striking, you must use lots of black mascara when you apply pink eye shadow!

My lashes look kind of crappy now, as some are still curled and some already straight, after the 3D eye lash perm I did in Hong Kong last December


Ok~ off to watch My Princess now~

Hi Blair =)
I got the skirt from this Singapore clothing boutique, Iora. It cost SGD39, but I had 10% off as I am their member.
