Chanel pink handbag, coral lipstick

What’s going on?  A second Outfit Of The Day (OOTD) blog post this week – that’s what’s going on!  LOL.

Of course I’d love a Chanel handbag.  Who wouldn’t??  Sadly, I have to make do with a Chanel-inspired handbag till a real one comes along.  I bought this salmon pink Chanel wannabe in Hong Kong at a mere sliver of the price of the real thing.  And before anyone asks, it is not a “fake” Chanel – it doesn’t have a “fake” designer label inside.  It is what it is.

The lippie is Oceanus from the Ciccone Cosmetics lipstick collection.  A girlfriend complimented my lips the day I wore this out.  Another girlfriend complimented my shoe choice.  They are wedged gold strappy Gladiator-like sandals that I bought in Sydney.  And in typical Ling fashion, I threw on random pieces of clothing and hoped for the best.  Check out the rest of my outfit.

I was in Seoul in September 2009 and the shopping was amazing there.  I got this Chanel-esque cardigan there.  It reminds me of Chanel because of the piping.  I could be wrong because I am not a fashion follower.  I’ve only worn the cardigan twice.  It shrunk in the wash.  I chuck everything into a washing machine!!

The high-waisted sailor skirt has braces.  After nearly 2 years of purchasing this, it finally got some love.  I may never wear it again though because instead of looking hot, I looked pregnant according to someone!!!  Fear not as I am rectifying this as I joined the gym yesterday – FACT!

    This is as close as it is going to get for Chanel! The tweed, the ladylike jacket, and the chain bag are all the elements of her signature style. I think you look fantastic and so sorry to hear about the shrinking issue….
