When: Saturday October 29, 2011

White dress: Saks (Panama)
White collar shirt: Conway (Panama)
Sequin pumps: BBB (Panama)
Silver clutch: Birthday present from my parents
Aqua Murano Crystal necklace: Present from my boyfriend

Work half a day + Halloween party at night

I felt so angelical and innocent in today's all-white outfit. Something about the crisp white over white, plus the glittery silver heels, and the aqua crystal necklace just felt like I should be floating on the clouds...

I wasn't really planning on celebrating Halloween this weekend, but a party sort of popped up out of nowhere. I kind of improvised a Halloween costume with some spiderweb tights, a black lace dress, some dark eyeshadow, and a spider hair accessory. It wasn't the best costume ever, but it was better than nothing.... Sorry I didn't manage to take any pictures!

Did you wear a costume this Halloween? What did you dress up as?

My Choice of Outfit of the week - Galactic obsession

Outfit of the week - The golden diamonds
This week's Outfit of the Week goes to Doinac from The Golden Diamonds! I don't know why, but I have been getting obsessed with all things galaxy lately... galaxy dresses, galaxy tops, galaxy shoes... love it all! I'm especially loving Doinac's galaxy skirt! She paired it so well with the white top, killer shoes, and sparkly clutch. She looks absolutely out-of-this-world! (Couldn't help the bad joke... haha sorry guys!)

To be completely honest, I felt kind of strange at first since I never wear glasses. But later in the day I started to feel more confident with my glasses.... Very geek chic!

Work + Planned some improvements for my blog :)

Today is the The Joy of Fashion's 2 year Blogiversary!!! Yaaaiii!! I can't believe it has really been two years since I wrote my very first blog post (See my first post HERE and my first outfit post HERE).

Its amazing how my blog has become such an important part of my life now. While I lived in the U.S., my blog was a way for my family to see what I was up to. Now that I am back home living in Panama, my blog allows me to share my passion for fashion with others.

I'm soooo happy and proud of how my blog has changed and improved with time. Of course, my blog wouldn't be even half what it is today without all of you! You have all been sooooo supportive, even in my humble beginnings. I appreciate every single sweet comment, email, and suggestion you have given me. So THANK YOU so much for making me such a happy blogger :)

Hope to keep seeing you all around for another year to come!
