Loving s/s 2011?


I just did my nails! I think they look super preeettty (:

looking through threadless, I saw hoodies, call me slow but I never knew they had hoodies, I though they're just shirts.
crazy pretty.
like their shirts, but the ones I wanted a long time ago aren't there anymore D:
oh well.
for more goodness - Threadless!

well of course the new s/s collections for 2011 are upon us!
and this is what I've been loving.

julien macdonald spring 2011 RTW

whee floaty and ghosty!

a printed coffee shop. so cute.

mary katrantzou s/s rtw 2011

I'm quite a literal person so I'm surprised it took someone so long to have a collection like this. me thinks this will make waves.

macramé seems to be making a comeback, (see first picture from Julian MacDonald) and this collection from
Matthew Williamson s/s 2011 rtw

I am all for it, macramé is just so interesting to look at. adds alot of detail and just looks complex.

btw! macramé is making a textile using knots instead of weaving or knit, so you see alot more holes in macramé lol.
my classmate is currently making a macramé top, I think its gonna turn out AMAZING, will post when I can!

richard nicoll s/s 2010 rtw

personal opinion: I thought the rest of his collection was rubbish. BUT I did like this top... thing.

everything can be seen on so... tell me what you think of the rest of the collection.

Vivienne Westwood,

I thought this looked exactly like,
this pair of heels from Christian Louboutin

love this, looks damn comfortable lol.

again, wasn't too wow-ed by this collection. but still, gotta love Westwood!

spring/ summer 2011 so far... hasn't really wowed me.

I hope macrame is big this season!



resent an invitation to gina for her to write on the blog! maybe this time the invitation will actually get through *crosses fingers.


the other day I was horribly sick, so my dad did smth damn sweet! he caught a massive moth and put it in a bowl, and put it next to me when I was in bed so I had smth to entertain me while paralyzed in bed. (:

Fareast Haul!

Oh wow, I'm sick again. urgh. worst time ever to be sick cause I have submissions due D:

As I've probably mentioned before, if not in earlier posts, probably on our facebook page, I have loads of posts overdue!!!!

SO, the other day.

I literally spent everything in my wallet and bank, about half an hour into my happy after-shopping-coma my mother called me and demanded an explanation why my bank only had $7 left, that brought me down to earth real quick.

most of what I bought came from Fareast Plaza, which I think they have gone abit whacked, they've really pushed their prices up, I got quite shocked when I went there, cause the last time I shopped at Fareast was eons ago.

GONE is my
"1000 over designs! 3 for $10 earrings!" shop. bleh.

actually... I'm REALLY irritated with Fareast. no wonder everyone has been going online to blogshops to find things, seriously, to find anything in Fareast now that is not overblown price-wise is hard!
to me, Fareast used to be... the Bugis street of orchard. sure if you wanna compare Fareast to say, ION, or Wisma, its still the Bugis street of orchard.

but it Bugis st and Fareast were once comparable. urgh.

so many shops have sprung up selling over priced accessories that aren't even high quality, same goes for clothes. I wonder if they even physically buy their stuff rather than just ordering online.

okay on to what I did buy!

*insert shiny smile.

Fareast Haul:

bracelet that is sort of in a belt style, opened like this to wear. quality on this one isn't the best, but I found the buckle thing cute so :D

I didn't know people still put 5cents at the end of prices anymore, other than mcdonalds and 7-11.

got this from funcdeco which is on the 2nd floor, its one of Regina's favorite shops, (regina was supposed to be a co-writer here but she went MIA)

this was... $15.90? I think? its pretty pricey but it was so adorable. must buy!

Also from funcdeco I bought something I've wanted for a longlonglong time,
confession: I didn't find it, my bestfriend did.

max: eh eh eh, look at this! cute right?
max: but I think I'm getting it.
me: ..... fine, you decide, if you don't want it I'll take it.
max: er... I think I'm not getting it la.

$30 and 30 minutes later....

max: actually I want that scarf.
me: .... no.
max: but you know I take damn long to decide and I found it anyway.
me: but I want it and I bought it...

and this continued, usually I would cave and just sell her the scarf BUT I've wanted a piano one for so long I really couldn't let it go.
max chio can?
putting my mannequin to good use (: the scarf as already mentioned above, cost $30.

I love caps, they're great when you have a bad hair day or if you're like me and too damn poor to dye your roots on a regular basis.
chio cap right!
japanese sorta print, and of course its "one of a kind" because the print will never be placed exactly in the same place again.
FML can still see roots. this was only $20 OMG HEARTHEARTHEART.

before going to Fareast, max, subhan and I went down to forever 21,

ACTUALLY AH, all the shops I bought something from, save the cap, I DIDN'T WALK INTO LOR. I was quite adamant about not spending money, its max who walked in... and then... stuff calls out to me D:

okay so forever 21, SINCE WE WERE THERE, I rummaged through looking for connecting rings, and found this one:
this was the only piece intact I think, the rest the middle part of the bigger flower fell off -_- this was $7, very chio!

while looking for connecting rings I happen to chance on...
this, 3 little rings for $7 which is a good deal I feel cause you can wear all 3 at once or..
wear one, just for a touch of jewelry. and please, I've seen rings like this go for $23 EACH. siao la. as if my father prints money like that.

so yes.

while rummaging I also chanced on...
THIS MEGA CUTE FLOWEEEERRR, I think its mad pretty, but pricey going at $11 if I remember correctly, its in a very pale pink and I think its just too cute to pass up (:

I also found this..
pretty bracelet! can match these with ONE of the thin rings. PRICEY AT $15

so yea I know I was meant to only get a connecting ring but ended up buying a few more accessories. nieh.

so these were the purchases of the day! I also bought a super cute casette ring but idk where that one disappeared off to.
probably in one of my bags.

I'm trying to get used to wearing rings because I generally get irritated wearing anything around my wrist or fingers.


since I was posting the stuff I got, I wanted to share two other nice things I bought in Hong Kong, I have quite abit more but these happened to be within arm's reach so..

my classmates keep calling it mukun. -_-

I have mentioned in an earlier post that I own this bag but never posted an actual picture of it.
if you wanna own this Utterly Awesome Bag, they sell it in Bugis Junction at one of those stall things for $25.
excuse the roots.

I like putting things in my hair, bows, butterflies etc. I think hair accessories have replaced brooches. a brooch on blouse = granny, a brooch in hair = Awesome!

this was never meant to be a hair accessory, its just a butterfly that comes with a little metal wire, which I twirled around my bun, I think its mad pretty.

tbh I think this was probably meant for like x'mas trees or smth. like.. for those attas x'mas trees you see in hotels.
you buy them like this, they're made out of feathers!
there was one with glitter that was more chio, but i'm not stupid enough to put smth with glitter in my hair, considering how light my hair is, the black glitter would look obvious if it scattered.

I used to have a red one but idk where that one went to, and one of the wings broke anyway, too lazy to paste it back on, and besides, red would clash with my hair anyway.

speaking of hair i'm redoing my roots this friday! wheee!

much needed touch up. obviously.

Nicholas Kirkwood and Vivienne Westwood

soooo... you know when you see really gorgeous shoes online by really famous designers? and you just WISHED you owned them?

I'm the kinda person who would go into the store and just try them (:

lucky for me I have a classmate who does own these Beautiful Branded Shoes and she happens to be the SAME SIZE as me (:

she bought 2 pairs recently and one of them is the jelly shoes by VW,

the first pair I saw from the jelly shoes collection was Heart Heels one.
when we were in HongKong I went off for awhile and about 5-10 min later found her again with a VW bag in her hand. AHHHH.

she bought a pair jellies with the bow in tortoise shell. which I think look soooo edible-ly gooood.

the shoes, get this, SMELL OF STRAWBERRIES, insane right? deodorant qualities!
which I thought was really really smart of VW because the shoes being made of jelly cannot breathe, so you tend to er... sweat in them. very unglamish, but very very pretty.

they are SO comfortable, really wish I had a pair. she was so lucky, because VW was having a sale, she got them at only about $200 SGD.


she also bought a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood shoes.

Nicholas Kirkwood has AMAZING designs, no joke. Absolutely Fantastic Stuff.
these are my favorite, with a sort of futuristic raw industrial look, bolts for the front toes and sheets of "iron" bolted down for the platform. and who can resist the string of nuts for the heel?

crazy pretty.

so my classmate really wanted a pair by him.
and she got these!
they cost... 1.2 or 1.6k not sure.

but they are gorgeous.
ha I think I'm about 1.8m in them. HOHOHO.

these are the kinds of shoes that if someone steps on your toes with the heels, you might actually lose your toe.

the stitching is just fabulous.

these heels are really hard to walk in, I have to say, they are ALMOST as hard to walk in as Christian Louboutins.
Louboutins are really not possible to walk in unless you are the kinda girl who walks in heels everyday, which I don't.
Even so, I think I walk pretty well in heels, but these were hardcore, I swapped shoes with my classmate for awhile cause her feet were dying.

even sitting down your feet hurt cause you are constantly pointing them. hahaa.

my mom would describe these heels as the kind "You need some guy to drive you around in."

go google Nicholas Kirkwood for shoe candy happiness.

your welcome.
