The Romantism of Violet Bridal – Purple used as primary color Jackie-O the Idol Theme (Bold & Elegant) – 3 main colors are used in this design i.e. Black, Grey & Red. Ivy modelled for the Evening Wear (2nd last outfit from the above drawing) whereas me, casually taking the usual wear.. the casual wear again.. :D (1st outfit ) and another friend of Wendy took the Coctail Dress (2nd outfit) The Renaisance Theme with a touch of local ‘Batik’ motives. Black & White as primary color.The Renaisance – Evening Wear. The monotone frills in between are silk Batik. i simply love the flow o the frills. They’d looked like octo-frill-dress!The Renaisance – Casual Wear. The Batik element in this outfit is clearly hidden as a pleat at the back of the outfit. Simple & suprising! i have my NOSE Criss Cross Black Patent Platform to match with this outfit. We were thinking of pairing them with some extravagant shoes, something strappy, gladiatorish but very unfortunate of us as the shoe options here are extremely limited so we just have to go with what we have.. (sigh)The Renaisance – Avant Garde. Now this is what i call the main dish of the day! i totally fell in love with this piece though i am not able to visually see it in real life and feel it with my hands. i love the hidden Batik pleat on the chest part especially. Those fabric looks extravagant. Nice piece!Triumph Inspiration Award 2008 (1st Runner-up) Wendy won herself 2nd place for this competition. The champion for this participated in the Beijing Triumph Design. A Japanese won 1st place for that.. with her Futurustic lingerie.
Chatted with Wendy of blackcoffeecrumbs yesterday and we happen to talked about how we used to draw during our childhood days. We will sit down and draw short stories / sketches of teenage life, cartoons or just simply draw what’s popped out in our heads during our free time. It is in our teenage years that we started to develop interest on designing outfits and less of sketches on teenage storylines & etc :D i remembered we do have a book on our designs. Got to find it and will surely post them once i’ve found them. In case your are wondering, the above drawings are by Wendy. These are her fashion design projects. Later had them tailored to fit the actual model.. and Ivy and i were one of them :D (tSsK!) Still prefer to be a designer rather than a model. Model just not me. Speaking of models, Ivy are always our top pick when comes to catwalk presentation. As you can see, she appeared in most of the pictures taken. There are more but at the moment i only have these for keep, will have to get the rest from Wendy soon. And oh! i just remembered that i once thought of planning to do a post on beautiful, fit and eligible models soon due to the news on models being extremely thin. That’s for now, thank you for your time & have a nice day ahead!
Finally! Those Tootsie shoes that i’ve been talking about by Velvet Angels are now up for sale on Amazon.com . However, they do not ship to Malaysia. That’s bad news! Spent almost 2 consequetive days searching & browsing the Internet for online store that ships to Malaysia and found one at Revolve Clothing . Unfortunately this time, the black ones are completely out of stock, so i purchased the one in light brown instead : ( (i know this sounds crazy but i was thinking of re-dye it in black color) Anyway, we’ll leave that when the time comes. As for now, i am pouring out my money for this pair of shoe and hoping that it would arrive soonest possible. Do check it out soon!

All set and ready to go.. Having good time preparing ourselves for church : ) Ivy wasn’t completely ready when i took her picture.. Sorry no shoes on her. Wendy was busy mix-matching throughout the morning and opted for a Chanel bag to go with her outfit. i gave a twist by adding a touch of Ivy Red color in each accessory (Belt, Bag & Shoe) : D It was a very bright & beautiful Sunday. We hit to the local Chinese food stalls for some vege dumplings & paratha right after that.

A round-up on my shoe closet as promised in my BE the BEst post. Most of them are from NOSE & Vincci because they are the only fashion shoe stores that are available in Kuantan, where i am living now. Thank God there’s Internet technology! Anyway, those drawings are my drafts. i used to draw during my free-time. They are not as good as Wendy’s of blackcoffeecrumbs . She’s a fashion designer and she draws a lot. Be sure to visit her blog to see more of professional drawings. Bye for now~
Was very happy to received the Bebe Stella shoes that i’ve ordered a few weeks back. Have them tested immediately after work. Felt & looked like a supermodel on the runway (though i’m not qualified) :D i will have them paired with a more appropriate outfit in a few days to come.. Sorry too for the low quality picture taken, was quite in a hurry when i took them today. As for now, i will be taking a short break to settle some stuff. Will be back aproximately early next week the earliest.
[ p/s: Pardon me for the scaly legs :D its been like this all these while, bad genetics i’d guess ]
Stereotypically speaking, most of us would relate the color ‘Yellow’ to some construction boots, raincoat, fire-hydrant or even mustard. Yellow could sometimes be hideous if not carefully used or applied due to the fact that its very eye-catching. Some of us, especially designers and attention-seeking-celebrities might like the idea of being noticeable by creating a new look or simply putting on a vividly bright color outfit, shoes or accessories. However, those of the above do make a good fashion statement and i call it ‘Bold & Stunning’. Lastly, not forgetting the shoes, Michael Kors, Marni, Christian Dior & Bebe produced a dreadfully-attractive design with those color and they played the game well. Bravo!
This is what you get form a combination of the word ‘Tootsie’ + ‘ Balenciaga’. i have been giving serious thoughts on owning a pair of Balenciaga Ankle Booties. Problem is, where on earth i can get it? Not even a single sight of Sam Edelman’s too. They are all sold out and even if they’re up for Sale, to buy them you must be earning big money. In view to this problems, i have downgraded my option from a Balenciaga Booties to an almost similar Ankle Boots from Velvet Angels – Tootsie boots. It has all the closest match points of a Balenciaga Booties.. and again, with a much lesser cost. i will be on the lookout for this pretty much sooner than anyone could imagine! Watch out!

Put on an old U2 dress i brought back in year 2000 when i was in college. Honestly, i have never wear them before and it is still brand new till to date. Have it paired with a Nicole MNJ Vest to go with its color.

Just hours before the opening ceremony of a church by my father’s friend who is a pastor. i have planned to wear this and that’s it! i must & i will stick to it no matter what. Not because i’m in a betting game or what but i have hold a history record for perpetuallyt not sticking to my outfit plans as i will have them changed at the very last hour after shower in the morning.. i’d guess, my mood just washed away with the water :D
