Bright Spring/Summer make up... Sunset Galore

Congratulations to the newly wed couple... Prince William and Kate (no more Katie waitie aye!). As a couple who have just been proclaimed as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge I wonder if we are also going to have someone (or a couple )named as such on our end or maybe we are just proud to live in the Robinhood county and I guess, we are just happy to keep it that way ;). No one can beat the legendary Robin Hood of Locksley and Maid Marian aye? ;). However, I still believe that Prince William would prefer to be called 'Prince William' or 'Wills' to his friends.

As you could imagine (those who live outside the United Kingdom), the country (or even the whole world) had their eyes and ears on the so called 'Royal Wedding of the Century'. Even tabloids have publised the bikini sets, tops and other holiday outfit that Kate bought from Warehouse a few days before the wedding as if people would rush to the said outlet and get exactly the same items or maybe I'm wrong! Don't you guys think that Kate's dress was a tad understated? I guess I was just expecting for a little bit more because of how grandeur late Princess Diana had for a wedding gown when she marched up the aisle during her time. The fact that Sarah Burton under the magnificent (and one of my favourite designers) Alexander McQueen designed the frock it really raised great expectations on the dress. I suppose the dress suited her really well... she oozed beauty, elegance and confidence (yes, even at the age of 29 and being a so-called commoner... believe me, there's nothing common about Kate Middleton ;)). Oh, not to forget her sister Pippa who looked equally beautiful and elegant in her Vivienne Westwood number (I know sis Nikki, I'm crazy about Vivienne Westwood creation but I don't think you can really blame me.) Anyway, back to Kate's (Or shall I say, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge)... I guess Sarah kept it that way to make sure that the focal point of the day was Kate herself and not the dress. I hope I wouldn't get a lot of stick on this post about the Royal Wedding. It was just my opinion and I am not saying that I didn't like the dress because I LOVE IT!!! (just to make my position clear here).

A...NY..WAY! My real intention setting here infront my laptop is to post an FOTD but for some reasons, the Royal Wedding came into my mind... I think I've still got hangover from it hahahaha! Now now now... F...O...T...D!

As we've been lucky enough to have great spring/summer season so far, I also have been inspired to wear bright colours this days and at the moment, I'm crazy about ORANGE! It must be the beautiful sunsets we've been getting around here.

I've been finding really great spring/summer looks recently just like the few famous faces who have managed to crack the look and rather look blooming good on them. Let's see if you agree with me... please start browsing now and tell me what you think about orange make up.

Well, no harm in trying, is there?

i love your looks! and the top on the second FOTD is love!! :) i love plain embellished tops and yours fit my addiction. :)

i agree about the dress.. i guess Kate wants to prove something, that's she's not gunna succumb to the royal life of grandeur by having a very understated wedding gown, doing her own makeup and ehem.. 2 kisses in public. :) lol!
