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?

Shopping with Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust

I’m a part of two really great collaborations each month: on the 20th I always post a Ping Pong Piece with Anna and Sam plus a guest blogger on a piece that is probably found in everyone’s closet. On the last Monday of every month, I also always post with The Fab 40s, six other 40 plus fashion bloggers and one guest. One of us chooses a theme, and we dress around with that in mind. For example I chose our last month’s post where we all wore our favorite colors, and I invited Catherine from Not Dressed As Lamb to join us.

I love both of these collaborations, yet I had been searching for one more. I’m a total shopper; I love to shop–both on the street, in the malls, amongst the markets and of course also online. In past cities where I’ve lived, I’ve always had a girlfriend to go shopping with. Here in Hong Kong, I have yet to find that gf. Meanwhile, I’ve been making many great friendships online with other like minded people–in fact that’s how the above two collaborations came about. I have met none of these women in real life, yet I feel close to them through our mutual interest. We all support one another. In terms of finding a shopping buddy, I knew it had to be with someone with whom I had a similar style: enter Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust. Debbie is a school teacher like me, but also, she has a deep love of style, clothing, and fashion. There are so many times when I see one of her outfits, and I think to myself: I would totally wear that. Debbie, like me is a shopper. When I mentioned this idea of online shopping together with her, she immediately said yes!

So in this post, here I am shopping with Debbie. We actually used the direct messaging service through Instagram. I’d screen shot some items; then she’d screen shot some items. In the end, we finally decided upon this Shein striped shirt. I’ve been working with Shein, and the graciously sent me this shirt for free. Meanwhile, Debbie’s never came–Shein warehouse issues…. (I think these warehouse issues have affected many of us!) So, I sent her this shirt, and it’s now hers–no sense in sending it back to Hong Kong! This collaboration has been in the works for quite some time, but I loved shopping with Debbie! I hope we do it again–what do you say Deb!?

Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust

I wonder if Debbie intentionally styled this striped shirt under this plaid slip dress. I’ve already commented on this dress before telling her how much I loved it. I think it was with this dress where I told her I felt like we were style sisters. We’ve both got a bit of boho mixed in with funk. She’s also very sporty–see the sneakers! (I need to replace my Adidas sneaks actually–maybe these are the ones….) I love that she paired this top with red plaid. I also like that she took care of the unflattering flare of the top by simply covering it up. Debbie, I could totally see myself wearing this exact outfit! Do you want to go shopping with me again? I sure hope so!

I met Debbie via Instagram. Follow her here: @fashionfairydust

Me, Kremb de la Kremb


I went simple with black and white. These pictures were taken some time ago. I had just scored the pleather A-line skirt at one of HM’s crazy sales. I swear: do not shop at HM unless the item is on sale. So many scores!! I tried emulating the stripe with a little stripe sock and also matched the sheen of the skirt with my shiny black sneakers. With all this black and white, I felt I needed a little color so I opted for my Zara Girls fuschia snake crossover bag. This bag compliments the pink lippy too. My final touch was some stripey type black and white (with a little blue) statement earrings. I’m loving all the cool earrings out there right now. I can’t seem to hold back!

Will You Try a Bodysuit?

bodysuit
There are a few things coming back from the 80s, and I plan to give them a try. I don’t adhere to avoiding clothing items the second time around. Instead, I’m all for it! Heck, I still have some items from the 80 and 90s, so it’s all a win in my opinion! Bodysuits are one of the items that are having a comeback. I still have my two Madonna for H&M ballerina bodysuits from years ago. As of yet, I’ve currently collected 3 more–this embroidered, mesh black one being the second to make the blog. (The first one was this 3/4 sleeve one paired with my silver joggers.) If you plan to tuck something in, then by all means finding that desired item in a bodysuit is the way to go; they stay forever tucked–obviously. For someone busty like myself I have to admit that I like how they flatten my otherwise full figured top half. I’m not sure how it happens, but I sure don’t mind appearing less busty than I already am! The other bodysuit that will be featured next is the one shoulder version I just picked up at Forever 21. (Yes, the one in this post is also from Forever 21–which is already sold out, but this cream one is way prettier anyway!) These pics were taken during out spring break trip where I paired this bodysuit with one of my favorite pair of cutoffs: my Harley Davidsons.

Will you try a bodysuit this summer?

I’ve chosen a bunch that I love at the end of this post. And this one is on its way–the one shoulder sleeve bodysuit. I love it. I first saw it on @JessBobess and have been wanting to copy this exact look ever since! Such a simple outfit but oh so very cool!

I’ve gone BODYSUIT shopping for you!

Now, since this is a trend, in my opinion it’s best to start at a lower price point. If by chance you fall in love with wearing a bodysuit and want higher quality, then go searching at Revolve, Shopbop, or Nordies. Until then, I chose some perfectly cute ones from Forever 21. In fact three of the bodysuits below are in my shopping basket!

Which bodysuit are you going to try?

Only Black Swimsuits For Me From Now On

Ok, it’s June 1st which means summer along with swimsuit season is here. I’ve decided from now on, it’s only black swimsuits for me. I’m 45 years old, and I’ve definitely got a mom bod–which is all good–but it does mean I have the appropriate amount of cellulite and sag. (I will admit right now to using the smoothing tool in a couple of these pictures. I’m ok with using this tool. If you’re not, that’s ok too. Back to only black swimsuits….) For me, now, with the body I’ve got, wearing only black swimsuits just seems appropriate. Granted I love color, but I just feel safer in a black suit. Every time I travel, I tend to pack only black swimsuits, and I’ve got plenty of options since recently that’s the only type of suit I buy. But, to be fair, there are so many cool black suits out there. I don’t feel like I can go wrong with this choice. During our spring break trip, I asked Kevin to take pictures of me in each of the black suits I brought. I feel daring to share them with you, but it’s a good challenge for me to undertake. I’m not a famous blogger with an amazing body; in fact, I think I might be just like you. A midlife woman who shows age but feels comfortable in my own skin. I want to feel and look good in my swimsuit just like the next gal. My way of doing this is to wear only black swimsuits–they’re slimming (kind of), they’re better at showing off a tan, and they don’t stand out too much. Done. Comfortable and confident while baring all!

The Cap Sleeve Black Swimsuit


When I found this suit, I felt like I had to have it–even though it’s way more money than I usually spend on a swimsuit. It just seemed like the perfect scuba diving swimsuit. There would be no worries about straps falling down under the wetsuit. And I was right. This suit is very comfortable. I love that it serves as a bodysuit too if I’d like. It looks like a tee from the front–but surprise. There’s a whole in the back! I plan to wear this swimsuit and a pair of cutoffs to our end of year school party tomorrow. I feel like I’ll be very comfortable–especially amongst my colleagues while in a swimsuit!

The Rash Guard Black Swimsuit

I love wearing a rash guard, and this one is perfect since it allows me to tan my stomach at the same time as protecting my chest. I got it at Forever 21 a couple of years ago. This is a mismatched suit, but the bottoms are also from Forever 21 from even longer ago. With mesh being so on trend right now, I especially like wearing this suit. I have to be careful though: once I got a little polka dot type tan because I didn’t wear enough spf on my shoulders. Yes, it was funny looking! While the short sleeve, cropped version of this rash guard is long gone, Forever 21 does have a long mesh sleeve, long shirt rash guard available for only $17.90. And yes, I’ll probably be getting it!

The Supportive Black Swimsuit

Yep. That’s my scar. It’s quite big. Luckily I can never really see it
otherwise I think I’d be quite self conscious about it! Out of sight, out of mind right?

When shopping for swimsuits on ASOS, there’s an option to click on “fuller bust.” That’s how I found this swimsuit, and it fits so well plus it’s only $25. I couldn’t believe it. It’s so nice not to be popping out of a suit! I don’t usually have success with one pieces, but because I was able to plug in my exact bra size, this black swimsuit fits. I especially love how from the back it looks like it could be a two piece, but from the front, it’s definitely a one piece. I definitely recommend this suit to fuller busted women.

The Retro Black Swimsuit

There’s a very famous Australian DIY blogger based here in Hong Kong that I adore. Her name is Geneva, and she writes A Pair and a Spare. (I often attempt her DIY projects–stay tuned for a pair of deconstructed jeans coming soon!) Recently, she made a top similar to this suit here. Because she is also busty, I wanted to give it a shot. So when I found this suit over on Shein for only $12 it was worth giving this style a try. Wow! I couldn’t believe it. This suit is as supportive as wearing a sports bra, but it’s way more vavoomba! Paired with the high waisted bottom, it almost seems like a one piece. I love wearing this suit. It’s conservative, but then again, not!

*Even though I have plenty of black swimsuits, I have a few more coming for this summer season. I’m eager to try the one shoulder style, so I have this one piece with a stomach cut out coming from Shein (again, only $12!) and this strappy version from Zaful plus a one shoulder bikini top from Forever 21.

Do you have a swimsuit style, color, or even approach to swimsuit season?
Do share! We can always use tips and tricks to feel our most confident selves while donning our swimsuits in the summer.

And the Fam–Reading!

In an attempt to lessen my vulnerability here in this post, I’ve included my lovely family also in swimsuits reading on the beach during our wonderful spring break. Oh! We had such fun–as proven here by this underwater post!

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!


My Name is Asher Lev: A Book with an Outfit

I started a book club this year amongst the high school teachers I work with. It’s been a successful little club with the typical book club characteristics. One special perk though is I buy the book for all the teachers: sometimes they know what’s coming while other times I surprise them with a title. Recently, we had an author visitor, Julia Golding, and we read her super YA title called Dragonfly. Oh, it was so good–properly adventurous and romantic all at once. I loved it!! The special treat for our book club was meeting with this famous, UK author. By the end of the meeting, a big question was asked of her: what’s her favorite book? Her answer had me thrilled as it’s one of my favorite books as well–My Name is Asher Lev, by Chaim Potok. It was decided; My Name is Asher Lev would be our summer read.

I first read My Name is Asher Lev during my freshman year of high school. To this day it has left me with such memories. Because it has always been a book I recommend to other readers, I decided to read it once again as an adult. The second time through I still loved it. Now this summer when I read it for a third time, I know I will enjoy it all over again.

Take a moment to check out my turquoise mascara! It is very reminiscent to turquoise lined eyes from my freshmen yearbook picture. Once I went into 9th grade, Mom allowed me to start wearing makeup. Finally! And well, I was heavy with the liner for a while! Hahah. To this day I love a little blue and now turquoise mascara. Love it!

A large component of this book is the spiritual conflict that Asher experiences. He’s a born and raised Hasidic Jew with very strong parental expectations to follow his religion closely. Yet, Asher is also a prodigy with an extreme talent for painting–and the subject matter that he cannot resist happens to be crucifixes. This definitely poses a problem for Asher and his devout parents. I don’t have extreme pressures to be Roman Catholic, but I will always recall the disdain I received from my mother for wearing a Hindu Lord Ganesha. After she visited me us India for over six weeks, I think she was able to relate to my appreciation and love for this Hindu god. Because of all the worldly experiences I’ve had, I can’t help but incorporate many faiths into my spirituality–Ganesha being one of my gods right alongside Jesus.

This book also brings back many sartorial memories: like those red patched jeans from Jill Kramp that I’d give anything to still own to this day. Those Levi’s were perfect and the only evidence I have of them is my senior picture. In attempt to be artsy fartsy, I wore my DIY painter jeans that were made with my adorable niece Maeve last summer.

The other item now found in my wardrobe that was ever present back in the late 80s were my penny loafers. Oh, that right foot penny loafer; may it rest at sea at the bottom of Coeur d’Alene. We were on board my father’s new purchase (spurned on my teenage bout of rebellion the night before–but that’s another story!). He had just bought a very big cruiser boat. We had just finished looking at it, when we all departed. I was the last to come off the boat, and as I was stepping on the the dock, the ladder I was holding on to started falling backward. Yes, I fell in to the frigid April lake waters. My dad grasped me by his army jacket that I wore without fail. As he was pulling me out, I felt my right penny loafer slip off, and I couldn’t retrieve it as best I tried. Now as an adult, I have a new pair of penny loafers that I love because of the first pair I owned. RIP right penny loafer shoe from 1988!

Gosh, I wish I still had my dad’s army jacket it too. It was so RAD–literally it was. It had a few medal pins on it plus the writing of his name and number. This is another item like the red patched jeans that I don’t recall giving away yet to this day wonder why I would do so. The “RAD” tee was an obvious choice for this homage to my late 1980s high school years. It was a word I consistently used then; it’s a word I so frequently (and nerdily so) use to this day. From penny loafers to painted jeans, to being rad and falling in frigid lake water in my dad’s waterlogged army jacket, it’s comforting to know I can pull out special items reminiscent of my high school days. It’s as if nothing has changed, but then everything has. And now, with my third reading of My Name is Asher Lev this summer, I wonder how I will interpret it one more time. One thing is for sure: I know I will enjoy it all over again because it is an amazing book!

A Mesh Dress and Instagram Friends


Last week I had a bit of a tantrum about Instagram. While the tantrum is still present, here’s the truth: I do wake up, open up my Instagram, scroll through the feed, and find style inspiration. This happens often, and it was definitely the case when I went to wear this mesh dress. I saw this picture of @cindyscurry, and I instantly knew what I was going to wear to work/school that day. (The last time I’d worn this dress it wasn’t so work appropriate!) Here’s what I’d like to say about Instagram: I have made some really neat connections and even friends from this social network. Yes, I get down about my numbers and wish I had both more likes and followers, but aside from statistics, I have proof. I’ve made girlfriends (and a few male friends too) around the world from Instagram. I need to make sure I don’t forget about that!! I started to make a list of all the friends I’ve made in order to share them here, but it’s way too long, and it would break my heart if I accidentally forgot one of you. Needless to say, despite low numbers, I do love the #instafriends I have made. You rock. And, you help me get dressed in the morning! So, thank you very much not only your friendship but your style inspiration too.

I got this polkadot mesh dress at Shein for only $12. It’s a fun one because it has to be layered–there are a ton more ways to wear this dress, and I’m ready to figure them out!

White Shirt: Ping Pong Piece No. 3


For one year, Anna, Samantha and myself sent items around the world for the Ping Pong Post that would happen on the 20th of each month. This year, we’ve made a list of items that most likely every woman has in their wardrobe, and we style it. Plus, we’ve added a new touch: we invite a fellow blogger to join us. This month, Samantha chose the very basic white shirt. We all have them. I mean I feel I can guarantee that every woman has a white button down shirt of some sort in her closet. The fun thing is a white shirt can take on so many different shapes and forms–as you will see in this Ping Pong Piece post. It’s our third round of choosing a piece, and Samantha invited Monica, aka Señora Allnut. Definitely, the white shirt can be styled in a variety of ways and comes is a multitude of styles.

Fake Fabulous


Samantha chose a sleeveless variation and one we can barely see, but Sam is an expert at layering as proven here. She needs to layer because where she lives is usually quite brisk–and I believe that may be an understatement. Do you notice how her white shirt is eyelet? Matching the dress? There’s texture galore, and I love all the other touches that add even more texture: the belt and shoes being my favorite.

Señora Allnut


Monica is a vibrant dresser, so styling a white shirt was actually a bit of a challenge for her. (Not shown in the picture here is the very vibrant red trench she had layered over this outfit.) Similar to Samantha, Monica is a bold print mixer: stripes, floral, and colorful beads. In my opinion her long white shirt serves as the perfect duster to this outfit pulling it all together.

Anna’s Island Style


I knew we could rely on Anna to wear the white shirt most of us have. It’s a tailored long sleeve button down. But, the cool thing that Anna has done here is funk up the basic with a vest and trouser in two quirky prints clashing together. Clash is the wrong word because this pairing totally works. I love the modern cowboy vibe she’s sporting. And those silver gun metal boots?! Want!!

And me, Kremb de la Kremb


I have so many white shirts. It’s actually ridiculous. I have the tailored one like Anna, the long duster like Monica, and I even have a sleeveless version like Samantha–although mine is in a linen/denim sort of fabric. Recently though, while I was snooping around Shein, I saw this long, tied version of a button down, white shirt. I felt I had to have it for my spring break trip to the Philippines. In my opinion it was going to make for the perfect travel shirt and beach coverup combined. Turns out I was right. I love this version of a white button down shirt.



This week I decided to try it out for work. I knew that my belly sometimes peeks out through the hole from the tie, but with some high waisted jeans, I took the risk. I love the idea of an all white outfit, so that’s exactly how I wore it–with white everything! Even though there are no bold colors to be found, I think wearing all white is in fact a bold feat. And, guess what?! I didn’t spill anything on myself all day long. Wow! Now that’s a record!!

What’s your favorite way to style the white shirt found in your closet?

Being a Mother


I’m not sure what’s going on with me, but I’ve been thinking a ton lately about being a mother. I mean, I’ve been a mom for 16 years now, and I have never been one to overthink it; I just do it. But, with Vincent turning 15 this past Sunday, for some reason I’ve been thinking about it a ton these days. Here’s the main thought that goes through my head: I only have three more years with Vincent under my roof. I have limited time wherein my reach might meet him. It’s not like I believe I can make him a certain way, but my time of influence with my son is definitely fleeting. I recently took a personality test. One of the questions focused on the character trait of intelligence verses kindness. I most definitely, strongly answered that I want my children to be kind over smart. I’ve always felt that. Now with three years to go, I’m bustlin’ my mommy buns to make sure I can raise a gentlemen. These have been my thoughts on being a mother lately. But there’s more….


Thinking about being a mother has always left me in thoughts about how I am being a daughter. I’m guilty of not being very good. I should write home more, call home more, reach out more. Over the weekend Kevin made a phone call home to his mom. First I thought, “Gosh, I hope my son calls home when he does move away.” Then, I was left with such guilt because I don’t call home very often. So being a mother has left me realizing I need to be a daughter–a good one. Ironically, yes it is Mother’s Day this weekend, but all these overly deep thoughts on mothering, they are being brought on by the two men in my life. My husband who is very dear to his mum all the time, and my son whom I hope very much takes after his father. And as for me, I need to do better and reach out to my mom–Mother’s Day or not!!


These pictures were taken during our spring break trip to Bohol, Philippines, and there’s really no correlation between these pictures and my thoughts on being a mother. Yet, in the above picture, I especially feel like I look so much like my mom. It’s like I’m identical to her or something. And then lately, the way I interact with strangers, wanting to know more about them and reaching out to make connections with people, I’m reminded again of my mother. She’s just like that making friends with the cashier at the super market or the seat neighbor on a plane. I’m a lot like my mom–both in looks and demeanor. It’s time I embrace these similarities and take pride in them especially since I admire my mom—A LOT!


(By the way…. since I attempt to fashiong blog over here on Kremb de la Kremb, I’ll offer some details on what I’m wearing. This $15 dress was perfect for sunsets on the beach. I highly recommend it because for the price, it’s a real winner–plus wearing white after a day in the sun is always a complimentary look. I was quite happy with this lippy (Cannes lip matte by NYX) that I brought–again it was the perfect shade for after a day in the sun. Finally, my earrings were a total score in one of my favorite shops in the New Delhi airport. I went back to get them because I couldn’t stop thinking about them. They remind me of something Kelly Framel, The Glamourai, would wear, and she’s just the coolest of all cool. And finally, because all the best flip flops are found in beach markets, the pair I’m wearing were picked up in Bohol’s little beach town. There’s my style update for this memorable sunset night!)

What’s Your Emoji?

emoji
Do you have an emoji? That emoji that you always use, that one that perfectly depicts how you feel? That emoji that you use in the text to your sister or the one included in your Instagram comments. That emoji that you connect with because it feels like yours. Well, I do! I have an emoji that I always use: it’s the emoji winking with a tongue sticking out! For me, it’s the trickster yellow face, the joking one. There’s that winking eye laughing, “Hahahhaa!” but also sticking a tongue out like, “I’m so silly!” For some reason I absolutely love this emoji and totally relate to it. In fact, I just recently (and finally) made my bitmoji, and when it came to what I would have my character wear, I chose a t-shirt with the winking eye and tongue sticking out. So, of course, when I saw this adorable, glittery, little crossover bag–in the girls department mind you–at J.Crew, I had to have it even though it wouldn’t arrive for months later since it was on backorder (It’s in stock now if you’re interested, and there are a ton of other cute options. Don’t be afraid of the girls department!). Oh this bag! And this emoji!! I love them both. Enough said.

Now, what’s your emoji? I’m dying to know!! (Insert winking emoji with tongue sticking out!!)
