Wide Legged Pants: Ping Pong piece No.5

It’s the twentieth, so therefore Samantha, Anna and I plus Liyana are brining you a Ping Pong Piece. For August we are featuring wide legged pants. I must say right off the bat that I may have not taken the challenge all the way. I probably should have featured these wide leg pants: my flowered very full pants. But, when Samantha called this theme I instantly thougth of my wide legged white jeans (similarly styled here but with a bit more cheeky fun!), so there you have it. I also wanted to style the purchase I made back in June with Debbie again with my favorite slides–but this time in yellow. You hear me talk a lot about Krystal Bick from This Time Tomorrow. Folks not only is she one of the most stylish bloggers out there, but she is also one of the kindest. I keep seeing her in yellow satin slides paired with just about anything, like a neutral, that I had to be the copy catter that I am and give it a try. I have to say; I like it! Finally, you will be seeing a lot, I mean a TON, of this Hustle & Hide Co waist belt from my sister. I can’t not stop using it; it’s the best! Julie, I am publically thanking you here on the blog. I love it so much! Let’s see how the other PPPers did this month with real wide legged pants…

Samantha from Fake Fabulous


Sam’s picture came in first, and I was like, “Uh oh, I should have worn my really wide pants.” I mean look how cools these wide pants look under a dress! Sam is used to layering as exemplified here. I wear plenty of short hemlines and need to take note: pair pants underneath. It not only looks super chic but keeps things more modest. I love how casual cool Sam is here. I will be copying this look dear friend, I’ll be copying for sure. And it won’t be the first time!

Liyana from Affordorable.com


Samantha invited Liyana from Affordorable. I have been following Liyana from her travels to her life in Malaysia for a while now. Liyana is the “modest personal style blogger.” While she always maintains modesty, she also always remains totaly and effortlessly stylish. Like me, she loves her kicks. I always enjoy seeing what she puts together–like here, she’s got classy pinstriped wide legged pants, with a tailored long blazer, and fun print head scarf. Plus! She’s carrying a wonderful matching title. (This is something I like to occasionally add to my posts;) I really appreciate each and everyone of her outfits. Follow both her blog and her Instagram. This was the second pic to come in, and yet again, I was like, “I missed the boat on this one!”

Anna of Anna’s Island Style


Now Anna’s wide legged pants are very similar to the pants I should have styled for this Ping Pong Piece. Mine are floral like hers yet in different colors, and like her I usually wear mine with a plain colored top because the pants seak for themselves. It was with Anna’s mail with these pants, that I considered retaking my pictures for this collaboration, but as time would have it, just couldn’t get it together. I do love Anna’s pants. They’re so fun, and they’re a definite last flowing goodbye to summer with their fresh colors. Oh, I sure don’t want summer to end–I’m pretty sure my friends here may agree…

And me, Kremb de la Kremb


In this photo if you look up above in the lefthand corner you will see two windows of our apartment. I cropped the picture so you could see where we live. Often times if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see the view out my windows. Here, I’ve offered a pic of those two windows. I have to admit: I love living in Stanley, Hong Kong. It’s a wonderful, incredibly vibrant neighborhood of Hong Kong. 

Now… let’s take a look at the wide legged pants I should have featured as founded on my Instagram feed… 

Here’s my flower power styled with my navy pea coat.

And here’s another styling back when I had super long hair. I was also able to wear high heels back then! Goodness, I was quite thin too! Something to strive for….both the hair and physique!! The heels I don’t care so much about (although I still have these boots just in case!).

A Ginham Top–Shopping with Debbie


Debbie, from Fashion Fairy Dust, and I have been shopping again! This time I let her know that I’d been wanting a black and white gingham top. So just like last month, we went to Instagram and sent direct messages back and forth of items we liked. It’s amazing all that we can do in the palm of our hands these days! Since I’m in the States for the summer we also were not limited to global shipping which meant we could shop at one of our (similar) all times faves: Targé!! It was kismet; the moment I sent her this pic, she agreed whole heartedly that it was the piece. What’s so amazing is how there are many subtle similarities with both of our stylings. See if you can find them….

Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust


The only thing that Debbie and I verbally agree on is the piece to buy. Then, after we’ve shot our looks we send out two pictures to one another. I’ve called Debbie my style sister before, and now there is evidence as to why: she paired the top with distressed denim and red just like me. I love the touch of red in her scarf and those cute cherry shoes. Plus that studded black belt–well, I’ve been looking for something similar! Plus her jeans are perfectly distressed. I could totally see myself wearing this exact outfit. Can’t you?

I met Debbie via Instagram. Follow her here: @fashionfairydust
and read her blog here: Fashion Fairy Dust.

Since I knew I also wanted to pair this top with red, I headed to my favorite thrift store of all time: Value Village on Boone in Spokane, Washington. I went into the store with the thought of either red jean cut offs or a red denim skirt cut off. Value Village did not fail me; I instantly found a pair of poppy red jeans in one of my favorite labels to cut off. If you are ever at a thrift store and you find a pair of Gloria Vanderbelt jeans, buy them! They make the perfect pair of cut offs. I’m not kidding. I have Gloria Vanderbelt cut off jean shorts and cut off hemmed jeans both in white. They are my favorite. She adds the perfect amount of stretch to her denim. I’d also like to note something special about the way I style this top: I’m not wearing tennis shoes!! I found a very comfortable black satin bow slides at Forever 21, and I am so excited that they work for me. (These cute slides also come in a pretty pale pink or a bold marigold yellow.) Finally, this kitschy bag is new to me as well. I just couldn’t resist it (nor the price) on Shein.

Would you like to go shopping with Debbie and me? Let us know.
Also, how would you style this black and white gingham top?

The Fab 40s in DIY

There are times when I feel like I should change the niche of my blog. For example, maybe I should become the denim DIY blogger. Then there are other times when I feel like I should be the “Be stylish in tennis shoes” blogger. Oh hey! Look at that, I wore sandals in this post!! Back to this month’s Fab 40s theme: DIY. I had a little cheer, a loud “YES,” a oh-ya-baby-I-can-do-this moment. My last embellished jean jacket was created over a year ago. While I still do like it, I’ve had the makings of one on my mind. When Diane called this theme, let’s just say I was pleased to share my newest DIY creation! I took the lips from this tee when the Fab 40s styled Pop Art. From another tee I cut out the “I <3 KK" which actually stands for Kota Kinabalu but in my mind it could be the two K's in Kremb de la Kremb. For the collar and cuffs I used a bandana, and for a little extra embellishment I used some denim white trim. Voila, my new customized K de la K jean jacket a la DIY.
Let’s see how the others Fab 40s faired shall we….keep scrolling!

In addition to the jacket, I also made my waist bag. I simply cut to slits in the back of the silver clutch, and then passed my silver and gold skinny belt through. Also, of course, I cut off the white jeans–that’s a given!

Diane from Fashion on the 4th Floor

Diane! Acid wash is my next project!! I’m so glad you offered directions. My niece and I just picked up jackets yesterday at my favorite local thrif shop, Value Village. Last summer we DIY painted denim jeans which is so fun, but this year we are ready to get friendly with the bleach. I was happy you offered directions with this jacket. I turned out SUPERB! There are two other things I totally ADORE about this styling of yours: 1) crop top! Yes!! And 2)cut offs–a summer must!! You’re a total inspiration Diane!

Tracy from The Naughty Forty Diaries

Diane invited Tracy from The Naugthy Forty Diaries. I’ve included two pictures of Tracy, just so you can become mesmerized by here eyes. She has the prettiest eyes on the Internet! I love her DIY! It’s such a simple way to add a personal touch to a tee: patches. Tracy I’ve gone overboard with patches on my own denim shirt. I love how your three say take me on vacation!

Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots

Our very classy Fab 40 named Jennie made this beautiful top: yes, she sewed it!! I am so impressed Jennie. It turned out perfectly. As always you are the effortlessly classy lady–even in a pair of cut-off hem denim jeans. You are our modern day Audrey of the group for sure!!

Mary from Curyly Byrdie Chirps

Oh, Mary, I want your jeans so bad! I’ve already referred to these jeans before, but when I was in high school I had the coolest pair of patched jeans. Instead of denim however my patches were red fabric. Oh, they were so cool. They even made it into my senior portrait pictures. I think you’ve given me yet another denim DIY idea here, so thank you. And of course, one can never go wrong with a Canadian tuxedo–especially one that includes denim heels!!

Veronica, I love what you did to your tee here. I too have done this choker style to my Guns n Roses tee. Isn’t it the easiest! Your camo tee turned out so cool. Now what I haven’t done is the ties on the sleeve–what an extra element of surprise DIY. I really like it. Was it hard?

And me, Kremb de la Kremb

We cover all sorts of themes over here with The Fab 40s…are there any you’d like to see?!

Cut Offs: Ping Pong Piece No. 4

With it being my turn to choose the Ping Pong Piece this June 20th, I am sure it comes as no surprise that I went with my summer (or pretty much year long) staple: cut offs! These particular cut offs are my absolute fave; meanwhile my husband (and one of my sisters) hates them. He can stand how big they are, but that’s what I love about these Wrangler, DIY, grandpa-like cut offs. They are so comfortable: the wash is perfect, there’s the proper amount of distressing, the leg holes are nice and wide, and the waist is a little big. Basically I feel like I’m in a pair of pajama bottoms when I wear these cut offs–granted I don’t care if it looks that way! I had to wear this tee for this month because summer has started, and yet I already don’t want it to end! I suppose this is very spoiled of me to say since I do get a 7 week break. Not everyone has that sort of summer break, but as a teacher, I’m going to embrace every single day I’ve got.

Ruth from My Little Nest

Since it was my month to choose the theme that means I also got to invite someone. I invited Ruth from My Little Nest–who has the most contagious smile ever! Ruth is also from Seattle, so I was pretty excited to invite someone from the PNW. For as much as I may complain about Instagram, I should not! I have made some pretty neat virtual friends, Ruth being one of them. She is always, so sweet, very sincere, and just a kind virtual friend. I am hoping I may get to meet her in real life this weekend when I’m in Seattle! She would be the first Insta friend I will meet. Aside from being a really nice person, Ruth also has amazing style. I often see what she’s wearing and think, “I’d wear that!” Maybe it’s a Pacific Northwest thing…. I mean look at those cut offs! They are RAD!! Thank you for joining us this month Ruth. If you want a super nice friend on Instagram, do follow @ruthyannie and make sure to start reading her blog too: My Little Nest.

Samantha from Fake Fabulous

I have a pair of white cut offs, so I’m not surprised to see Samantha in a pair. What does surprise me is the pairing with neutrals. Sam is usually so bold, so I was startled to see a more muted color palette this round. The great thing about this lady is she makes me think about doing new things with my own style. I would never pair my white cut offs with a nude, khaki sweater, but wow! It’s such a classy look. Thanks for giving me style inspo once again Sam!

Anna from Anna’s Island Style

Anna is also sporting some white cut offs…. from me! We brought back a bit of the Ping Pong Post this month as Anna was pushed a bit with cut offs as she didn’t own any. Well, I’ve got denim coming out my ears! Easily I was able to make her to pairs of cut offs: a pair of white denim cut off bermudas (worn and shown here) and cut off denim white skirt. Again, Anna proved that white cut offs look great with neutrals. I’m going to have to try this with both my white denim cut offs and my white denim cut off skirt. What would I do without all these amazing friends I’ve made virtually via blogging and Instagram!? Thank you for more style inspo Anna, and I think you look great in cut offs. I hope you wear them all summer long!

And me, Kremb de la Kremb

These pictures were taken the weekend before we came home for our summer. Near our home in Hong Kong we have a variety of beaches to choose from–it’s actually really awesome. All the public beaches have fire pits to barbecue on to, so this was our first and last barbecue for the 2016-2017 school year. It’s so fun to pack up a picnic of food and barbecue on the beach during the sunset hour. I almost lost the sun in these pics; it went down so fast! Luckily my stellar photographer got the pics!

Look at my buff photographer: she set her mind on abs during the month of June, and by golly she got some!!

The Fab 40s and Our Favorite Colors

I love when The Fab 40s get together. We all have such different styles, yet we have a common bond in loving and sharing our own style. I have to admit something: the last couple of themes were difficult to wrap my head around–there’s nothing princessy nor villainous about me, so dressing those parts was challenging. With it being my month to choose the theme I resorted to something easy–all of our favorite colors. In fact I tried to predict everyone’s favorite colors but I was way off! For me, my favorite color has always been many shades of varying midnight blues. I can vividly remember that first jumbo box of Crayola crayons and using that beautiful almost sparkly navy blue called midnight blue. It was literally love at first sight! And it’s been my favorite color ever since!!

The Fab 40s Favorite Colors:

These were my predictions, yet I was all wrong:
Diane–I think a pale blue
Jennie–either pink of purple
Mary–I’m going to go with yellow
Sam–red, for sure
Sheela–a deep red rose color
Vero–black, for sure
and our guest, Catherine–I guess peach!!

Let’s get to the real deal on all these ladies…

Fashion on the 4th Floor


I was wrong with Diane, but I was close with the pales–her fave is a pale pink! Diane you are pretty in pink!

A Pocketful of Polka Dots


I was also very, very off with Jennie! She told me she barely owns any pink or purple. Maybe it’s her gorgeous hair that had me heading that way. Jennie’s favorite color is kelly green, and yes! I believe it. What a knockout dress!

Curly Byrdie Chirps


I was right! Mary’s is yellow! I just knew it, and Mary, I am so happy I was right with at least someone. You always–and this time is obviously included–rock the color yellow. It’s gorgeous on you.

Fake Fabulous

Now, here I was kind of right. Sam admitted to having too much red on the blog lately plus a hankering for wanting to try out pink. I think she’s done a smashing job with this beautiful color!

Sheela Writes


I almost said black and white for Sheela but instead went for a deep red–which she admitted was also in her fave trio. But when one can wear this color combo so well, why wouldn’t one!?

Cid Style File


Again, with Veronica I was correct with the guess, but she went with another color she also likes: a deep burgandy, wine color. (Not red though; she was very specific about this!!)

Not Dressed As Lamb


This month I am so pleased and actually very honored to have Catherine from Not Dressed as Lamb be our guest. Wow, if you, like me, are a 40 something blogger wanna be, then you know Catherine. She is our guru. And she is our kindest champion as well. I have been writing and consulting with Catherine about my blogging questions. both big and small, for at leas the last four years or so, and she has alway been so supportive with exhaustive answers to my queries. She has become one of those girlfriends I have yet to meet in person…..maybe one day. I am continually amazed by her; and I’m not the only one! Just this past month, Catherine won UK’s best over 40 fashion and beauty blogger! This is huge, and I am so proud of her. Catherine is so deserving of this role and award. Welcome to our monthly collab Catherine. I thought you were a peach–I was close with the beautiful pink. Thank you for joining us!!

And me, Kremb de la Kremb

And here I am in my favorite color in my favorite texture of this year: midnight blue velvet!


I was Featured on Rug Lane!

Here I am in head-to-toe Kremb de la Kremb DIY for Rug Lane!

I’ve been talking a lot about Rug Lane lately. From the market they just held this past weekend to their feature on me–yes! Rug Lane featured me as an HK “City Slicker” a couple of weeks ago. This was such a huge compliment and honor! They also showcased one of my all time favorite DIYs: my easy to make off-the-shoulder striped dress. The founder of Rug Lane, Billie-Grace, came over one afternoon, and I just talked and talked and talked. Her focus for me interview was my DIY–what inspires me and how I go about my DIY projects. Basically, I was giddy because I was able to have a show and tell about all my DIY creations. Telling stories about my style is one of my favorite things to do which creates a premise for this blog. Along with trying to inspire others, I really love stories behind stylistic choices. The other great thing about Rug Lane featuring me was making a new friend: Billie-Grace. She’s the sweetest individual with two jobs as well–one of the paying variety and the other her passion which is Rug Lane. I do encourage to go take a look at the ezine. It’s filled with great music lists, style inspiration, and Hong Kong happenings, yet because of her mission, to make it a global site, there’s no limitation to HK. It’s an everywhere anywhere everyone kinda online magazine, and I love it. Please go visit! Also, make sure to follow Rug Lane on Facebook and Instagram.

Style Stories No. 9: Back-to-Work

StyleStory9.1
Here’s a sampling of what I wore this past week. It was difficult arriving back from an amazing trip where we went home for the holidays. Arriving late on Sunday night made getting up for work on Monday a bit difficult. I declared Monday a jeans day for myself. By the end of the week I stepped it up a notch. I feel very lucky that I have a pretty relaxed dress code at work receiving a lot of freedom in my sartorial ways. During the trip away, I managed to get some shopping in Stateside. Oh what fun! Especially after the holidays when the sales are rampant. Wow! I’m not shopping until after Christmas next year–if I can hold tight.

*You may have noticed a difference in the image up above. Santa delivered a Wacom tablet so I’m giving it a stab. I still have a ton to learn and much to get better at, yet I do love being able to write on an image though. It’s pretty nifty. All the images are from @krembdelakremb. Follow me and my style shenanigans on Instagram!

Back-to-Work Style Notes:

This is what I recommend from this week’s back-to-work Monday through Friday outfits:

  • After pining away for my sister’s Madewell Flea Market Flares that she let me borrow this summer, I decided to take the plunge and finally get a pair myself. It had been sooooo long since I invested in blue jeans. (Like 2009!) Lucky for me this pair was on super sale plus I was able to get a pair of black high waisted skinnies. I tell you what ladies: try out the high-waisted jeans. They feel so great over my ponchy pooch!
  • The thing I love about the co-ord trend is that out of this one outfit, I now have a top and bottom to mix and match. This is the co-ord I wore to the first day of school. I like how it comes across as a dress rather than separates. I’ve taken down my shopping guides and added the co-ord shop back to my shopping section on Kremb de la Kremb.
  • Zara is also having a major sale! I did really well there because I also was benefitting from the Canadian dollar. These navy blue suede culottes were a no brainer. I was also able to score the black velvet suit I had been coveting all fall long at a fraction of the price. It will be my go-to holiday outfit next year. I highly recommend stopping into the nearest Zara near you!
  • Anything from Banana Republic that is on sale can also have another %40 taken off with the code “BR40.” Here’s my exact blush sweater that I scored for US$16! (It comes in 12 colors, so there’s gotta be a color for you there!)
  • Except for special events, I am still preferring to wear a flat heal for work. My New Balance tennis shoes have been pillows on my feet, yet I’ve been wanting to mix it up a little. These new brogues with tassels were a stupendous find (again, at Zara). I can tell they will be on high rotation.
  • On a final note, I recommend you splurge (or find the perfect one on sale–don’t worry, I’ll help you!) on some faux fur! I big puffy black coat–like I wore on Tuesday, is so very cozy and suits just about every outfit. I’ve found some plain black versions for you at various price points from ASOS–the offer free shipping world wide! Trust me. You’ll love it. You can thank me later….


Shopping Day Dreamer

  • So, I do not own these, but I just wanted to include one of the items I am coveting from the after the holidays sales at J.Crew. They are still a fortune–even on sale, but maybe they’ll come down a bit more. I find these gold sequin culottes beyond fabulous. In the window at our Hong Kong branch they’re paired casually with a pair of neon New Balance. I was smitten!!
  • Another item that I kept going back to time and time again was this pair of Free People sock boots. (A sock boot is when the calf shaft is tighter around the ankle and goes up a little further than an ankle bootie. You can expect to see more of them.) They’re the deepest shade of navy, so they’d almost pass as black. They’re the perfect sock boot fit, and amazingly, they didn’t feel to high in even though there’s about a three inch heel there. I really can’t stop thinking of them. My birthday is in February–hint, hint to a possible gentleman reader.

Your turn!

Unlike my six style promises of 2016, I can’t make any promises in terms of my style stories’ link up, but it’s back this week. I will try my best to resurrect this link up!

Share any of your style stories. I want to see what you’ve been up to!


Style Stories Link Up No. 6 and My Paisley Pants

Paisley Pants 1

The Kremb de la Kremb Style Stories Link Up is back this week, and for my own style story I’m sharing the story of these crazy paisley pants! I’ve had this pair of paisley pants since Vincent was born–that means they’re 14 years old! Sometimes I’ve thought about getting rid of them, but then, they’ve been through so much history: I cannot. These pants were purchased on Margarita Island in Venezuela. It’s a duty free spot, so we’d head over there on the weekends for sun, surf, and shopping! These pants are on the smaller side for me, so they always serve as a good measurement; if I fit in them, I’m in ok shape. (They’re a tad bit tight here–time to get to work!) I wear these pants without fail for each Thanksgiving. They’re my Thanksgiving pants; since it’s November, they’ve been pulled out. In fact, around the purchase of these pants, we had one lucky Thanksgiving where we were able to spend it in Savannah, Georgia with the entire Freuen clan. Also I associate these paisley pants with my wonderful family and friends I have in Mumbai, India. I wore these nostalgic trousers during a weekend of coping with the horror of the Mumbai terrorist attacks up in Lonavla–while this was a tragic experience the closeness of those special to me is held close in my heart. With so many memories attached to the wild pants, it’s no shock that I pull them out each and every year!

Style Story Link Up No. 5 + @catoinamsterdam

@catoinamsterdam
I am making friends with the coolest women–around the world. No I haven’t met them in person yet, but I am getting to know them regardless of time and place. This week for my Style Story Link Up, I want to introduce you to @catoinamsterdam. For ease I’ll refer to @catoinamsterdam by her name, Carin. But have it be known that if you are on Instagram, and you like to seek inspiration from stylish outfits, then stop reading this post, click on this link right now, and select “FOLLOW.” Carin is known in Instagram as @catoinamsterdam, and to put it simply she is known!

In the short three months that Carin has been on Instagram she has created one of the most exemplary communities I’ve seen. Carin is first and (obviously) foremost very, very stylish. But, this is not her only claim to fame. Carin is also super nice, encouraging and supportive, very fun, and finally engaging. She replies to every single one of her comments as well as graciously and continuously commenting to others on their own pics. I know this from experience. This is how we started to firm up our friendship: it was about a month ago that I began writing her the old fashion way as pen pals. (This is the old fashion term for those individuals who write hand written letters and send them through the physical post via an individual called a postman.) Now I’m anxiously waiting for my postcard to be sent over from Holland–yes, the “amsterdam” in her handle refers to where she lives. Lucky huh!?! Until I travel to Amsterdam or Carin travels to Hong Kong, we’ll continue growing our friendship via the many modes available to us today.

Now, go ahead and take a look at why I follow Carin and why you should too! You’re going to see bold colors, fun pattern play, whimsical touches, and my favorite, confidence. Her smile and stature all tell us Carin is proud to wear what she’s wearing each and every day!

Style Story Link Up No. 4 + Samantha from Fake Fabulous

Samantha from Fake Fabulous
I thought it would be kind of fun to switch things up here for my Style Story Link Up. Usually I will highlight what I’ve worn for the work week, and while that’s interesting for a bit, I find it gets a little repetitive: runners, skirt, graphic tee, repeat, Monday through Friday. Therefore this week, I’m sharing a blogger that I’ve become friends with over the last month or so. In fact, I’d venture to say we’ve become good friends.

She’s friendly!

Samantha from Fake Fabulous is one of the nicest bloggers I’ve met. There’s something about her that makes me think that in real life–the kind in the same location where coffee dates actually happen, we would be the best of friends. There’s so much about her that I just find so friendly. Take her natural very friendly smile in this post: doesn’t she look like your best friend next door?

She’s bold!

Samantha Fake Fabulous 1Samantha’s style is definitely BOLD with capital letters. It’s funny because I have always thought of myself as a bold dresser, but in knowing Samantha I have realized there are some many different interpretations of bold–bold with mixing, bold with lipstick, bold with different pairings, and bold with color. Sam definitely shows me examples of dressing bold with color, and I appreciate this influence!

She’s a mixer!

Samantha Fake Fabulous 2Not only is Samantha bold with color but she’s an expert at pattern play. The way in which she matched these tartan pants with a flowered blouse is just pure awesomeness. I mean I love it! It’s such a cool outfit. Plus reading her commentary on that blouse and enticing the reader to be YES or NO with the blouse. Well, I just really enjoyed reading the post, and of course I went with YES!

She’s a storyteller!

Samantha Fake Fabulous 5This link up has been named the Style Story Link Up; that’s because I love the story behind much of my clothing. So much of what I wear involves storytelling. I think, aside from how amazing I find Samantha’s style, part of the reason I keep returning to her blog is I love the stories she tells about her clothing. Like wait till you read about the beautiful cashmere coat above–thank goodness she went back!

She’s quirky!

Samantha Fake Fabulous 4These blue tights have haunted me! I love them, and later on in the month you might get a chance on Samantha’s blog to see me attempt wearing something similar. All I can say is wearing blue legs is not easy, but Sam makes it seem like a cinch. I mean it just looks so natural on her. I love that, and it goes to support than when one feels confident in something it totally shows. I don’t even think twice at this outfit because she owns it–you can just see it in her smile!

She’s hot!

Samantha Fake Fabulous 6Let’s admit it: Samantha has a hot figure! Look at how fabulous this dress is! I mean WOWZA. Enough said. Samantha you look amazing!!

Samantha from Fake Fabulous

I hope you’ve enjoyed this format of my Style Story. Again, one of the main reasons behind this link up is the connection. It’s really amazing to be meeting bloggers from around the world–which by the way is happening. My friend Sam lives in Scottland. (I’m sure you’ve been wondering where leaves take on such amazing colors!) I also hope I’ve been able to introduce you to another individual’s style stories. Enjoy Samantha from Fake Fabulous!
