online shopping, no thanks.

my interwebz has been down as of late and i've been really sad! i'm an internet whore and its super hard getting by without my facebook and my twitter. i don't use an iphone or a bb with an interwebz plan so.. OMG. really torturous. especially since this week's URBAN was all about interweb shopping!


i have to say, internet shopping to me, is one of the most tedious and scary things in the world. firstly, i know FIRST HAND how EASY it is to spend plastic, i hate forking out cash for an item and then looking into my wallet to find it empty. i'll feel poor. so i end up abusing my plastic, and then get the fright of my life the next time i go to the ATM to draw cash. if i have this problem IRL how will i fare in virtual land? -shudder.

secondly, the fit. i do NOT understand, how anyone, can buy clothes online unless you already have visited the store and know the general cut of the clothes, for example: River Island and MANGO's clothes fit me very well most of the time.

i mean, what if you get the dress and it looks terrible! sure you can send it back nowadays, but what if you CAN'T and what if you have to pay for shipping back? Die Lah. i know some people are just like, its $20 wear once or twice can already Lah. if you add up, 5 dresses that looked terrible and you stop wearing them, thats $100 that could have gone to a damn good pair of heels (on sale). and yes i know there are measurements, but thats for size, not for your body proportion to the size. just because i get a dress i like in my size does not mean its gonna look good on me.

thirdly, clicking. okay maybe cause my internet is slow so i guess this only applies to me. going from page to page to Page to PAGE to find anything relatively close to nice kills my patience quota for the day in about 10 minutes. BUT again, i think this only applies to me because i don't know any blogshops/ online boutiques that have things i like.

fourthly, THE QUALITY. wah this one can die la okay. got loose thread here, shitty material etc etc. wtheck. YOU NEVER KNOW. unless you of course think its fine to drop over a hundred dollars online to pay for Quality, on something You Have Never Seen. i could never drop a three figure sum on something I Have Never Laid Eyes On.

so again. maybe its just me.

HOWEVER. i do think that for accessories and bags online shopping is fine, i mean you see a picture and thats what you get, quite hard to bluff your way out of bags and necklaces. but if you're like buying a ring, the size, how?!

so far. i have seen plenty of things i would die to have online, but all of these fall into the three figure range so, until i get myself a job, i'll leave interwebz shopping to the Brave.

(also it's always puzzled me how people can buy things like shoes online :/ )


In tribute to my very dead internet. Skeletons! i like skeletons and very... sadistic things. Granted i realise that the fond-ness of said objects is not wide-spread.

Its not all about gore and guts spilling out, i mean it tastefully. (well i mean as tasteful and one can get when one gets Literal)

so here are again, things i would own if i was Bill Gate's Lovechild.

bangles by Lady Grey, how cool are bangle bones! Seriously.
bones bag by jeremy scott, i thought this looked alot like the hair of the daughter in the flintstones, pebbles.


my classmate has the actual bag and she carries it when we have too much stuff to lug around school. (i always steal her bag so i can pretend i'm the rich kid)

again by jeremy scott. flintstones sex-ed up.
okay i don't know where to get this sweater but i found it online and think its superdupermega cool.
-insert orgasm.

the epitome of design, how beautiful are these boots from dsquared? thank you dan and dean. -sniff.

i would honestly kill someone for these shoes.

for a really simple outfit and for the love of the outrageous, Christian Lacroix.

i like the black one more, but hey thats just me.

okay i'll admit these are extreme and i would probably cover the feet part of the stockings with a pair of ankle boots/doc marts/high cut converse but i think other than the feet, its pretty damn unique. :D



say hello to the bag that would catch the attention of even a blind man.
i love the LV speedy size, it totally the perfect bag, able to stuff everything, make up, wallet, handphone, ipod, keys etc,etc,etc.

and really, how much more awesome does it look in gold? all reflective.... and shinyy.... and.. prettyyy..... and it costs around....

$1500 (USD)


-insert, wave of depression.

expected but STILL. the one LV bag i would ever truely pay to have.

need to go marry son of an oil tycoon.

what would be hilarious is if someone wore with with this dress.

jokes aside here are (not including the picture above) the looks that i love from Balmain this Fall 2010 RTW.


i think this would look gorrrgeous with the gold LV bag, gold over kill, but it would totally rock a gold themed party. or.. Magnum could use it for the promotion of their new gold icecream.

dress and jacket <3

and now excuse me as i run off to find and seduce the Son of an Oil Tycoon.
