Dress to Rush

Nov 27, 2008

This is what I wore yesterday at my bf's birthday dinner. Would you believe that I bought this just 30 minutes before the agreed time? Fortunately, the inn has some rows of boutique alongside it and grabbed the nearest decent dress I could find. Here's the backstory: since it's the bf's choice of restaurant, I didn't expect we'd be somewhere fancy. Boys don't choose ambiance, they choose whatever restaurant can serve them heaps and heaps of food. Sigh. So I dutifully packed a Marc Jacobs top and jeans only to rush at the last minute, especially when his text informed me that he's bringing his friends (all male). Gotta look your prettiest right? As you can see from the photo, I should have worn some tummy control haha. I twisted my hair into a bun at least 20 minutes before to create some curls and they did nicely I must say. At least the bag and shoes I brought with me can be paired off with anything. This pair of Kate Spade peeptoes have been so durable, I swear by it. Comfy too.

Cruise Collection

Nov 25, 2008

A snapshot i took of Preview magazine's feature on the Louis Vuitton Cruise Collection in collaboration with artist Tanya Ling. Aren't the colors gorgeous? Reminds me of cotton candies and beach resort chic. Makes me want to go to a fabric store and have a dress made inspired by the dress on the upper leftmost.

Jewelry Pickings

Nov 22, 2008

Some jewelry emailed to me over the past few days to look over. Soo tempting and they are all so elegant. All photos are courtesy of BeaP and if you want to take a look at her online store, just click on the link. Her jewelry pieces range from jaw-dropping to just simply beautiful and I can feel an addiction whenever there's something new.

(South Sea Pearl Earrings)

(green quartz ring)

The ring on top is this beautiful quartz ring I first saw last Tuesday. Well, I took so long deciding whether to get it that another person bought this first. Too large for my finger though. But I think this is what magazines called "statement jewelry".

Shoe Love

Oh my, my heart just left my chest. This pair of Louboutins are just absolutely gorgeous! Definitely not for dancing or walking in some cobble stoned driveway but for those romantic dates and Saturday nights where you go to be seen and see. There are other colors available but this one does it for me. I read in a W magazine article that Christian Louboutin offers a robin's egg blue sole service for brides. Definitely something to try when i get married. Gotta start saving now lol.

Vintage Chanel

Nov 20, 2008

This Chanel pendant was once a pair of earrings I wore to my Miss Sophomore parade ( eons ago). This was given to me by an Aunt when I was a child and I hoarded it to myself because I saw the Chanel ads in the pages of Vogue. Sadly, due to numerous renovations and carelessness, the other pair was gone and this become detached. I strung a gold chain into it and voila! A new life for a vintage Chanel earring. It has a quilted raised background like the ones used in Chanel bags and the interlocking C's. It's quite heavy, in fact, I wonder how I managed to wear this during a parade and program as earrings.

Lusting after Chanel

Nov 12, 2008

I was bored so I watched some of the Spring/Summer 2009 Collections on youtube. When I watched the Chanel S/S 2009, I instantly fell in love. Well, everyone talked about the bags including the Chanel paper bag. But let's not go there because I can not afford Chanel bags at the moment (teehee).

This multi colored necklace worn by one of the models caught my eye and it is so beautiful and dainty, I *heart* it!


This led me thinking i could maybe recreate something like this out of flower brooches. Hmm.

One of the trademarks of Chanel are bows and I am a girl who loves them bows. But not too many please. I prefer it only in black or white.


Two toned stockings that are ridiculously sexy. Not too hot about the maribou feather shoes though.


The details on this dress is just amazing. Maybe someday, I can have a Chanel evening dress to go to parties. Hey, it's free to dream, right?


New Purchases

Remember the Prada Rayon dress I posted here sometime ago? It went on sale and I just had to make a home for it in my closet.

When i had friends over, i had them snap me on my cellphone camera and this was the result:

Of course, the model looked more curvier in it because she's way thinner than I am but the colorblock panels actually sculpted the body and created the illusion of a curvier waistline. Now that's something to be happy about.

Amethyst love

Nov 7, 2008

I take this out of its box whenever I feel low. Its purple color uplifts me as well as the peridots surrounding it. And the thought that their value increases over time uplifts me as well (teehee).

Pucci craze

Nov 1, 2008

I recently purchased a pucci dress and knowing that it's pucci made me close my eyes and open my wallet. Sigh. I know, it's not cheap, my lower IQ dominated me here but i had no regrets when the shipment arrived. My dress looked like this, only with longer sleeves.

Well, it turned out to be very nice indeed and the fabric is just to die for. I tried it on and it looked ok except for the bust part, i kind of looked busty in it. The silk jersey really clings to your body and i need some body lingerie over it to make it look really smooth and not bulgy i might add (hehe). If funds permit, I might just be able to purchase moi another pucci (and i swear that will be the last!). After all, pucci's can be handed down as they are fashion classics. What do you guys think of this dress?
