Monday Mode ☆ Lace Dress

Since I wrote about lace top two weeks ago, I thought that I would continue the topic with my lace dress. I don’t know what it is, but I am in love with tops or dresses with lace. I found the dress at ZARA at Grand Indonesia this past July. I took my little sister who was visiting Jakarta in July, 2012 to Grand Indonesia for shopping and my purchased it with another sister of mine for me for my birthday although my birthday was in June.

Apparently the dresses with open back was very popular in Japan this past summer. I don’t get to see the back, but I find it a cool design. I saw the earrings in Rockport, Texas at a store called Bay Window. Every summer we visit Rockport, Texas and I always make a stop at Bay Window. I love it! I saw these earrings at Bay Window, but they were a bit out of my budget for earrings. My husband’s aunt saw that I liked them and she bought them for me. I wear them all the time.

The shirt below is the one I found at Forever 21 back in the States this past summer, 2012. I am wearing it today as I write this post. Writing about clothes makes me want to go shopping!

Typhoon Jelawat is passing through the mainland Japan and made landfall in Tokyo on Sunday, September 30, 2012. Typhoon Jelawat hit Okinawa on Saturday, a day before, and my friend, who has grown up in Okinawa wrote on her Facebook page that it was one of the worst typhoons she’d experienced. The wind was so powerful that it lifted a car in Okinawa and some of my friends in Okinawa wrote on their Facebook updates that they lost electricity. A few of my friends posted photos of the damage the Typhoon Jelawat left. I am worried for my family and friends who live in Tokyo as the houses there are not well equipped for enduring typhoons like a strong typhoon, Typhoon Jelawat. I hope they are safe.

      Aww, thanks! It was my first lace dress. I fell in love with it. There was a black dress in a different design and I really regret that I didn’t get that one, too!!!

      That’s so nice of you to say! I nurse (this is huge!), swim, jog and play tennis throughout a week. I am lucky to be in Jakarta where I have the freedom to workout whenever I want to! I don’t think I can go back to reality any time soon…
