my outfit proverbs for 2010:
Strictly no velvets
Be more couture-ristic
Explore every style possible
Be adventurous of animal prints & motives
Enrich with vividly bold colors (Green, purple, pink, orange & etc.)
Be courageous, confident, poised & wear it with right attitude
Cut down on plus / over-sized outfits
Think new outfits, less of copying
Reinvent, recycle innovatively
Lastly, maintain the zestiness
i’m contemplating to purchase a studded vest and saw several from a local blog. Both designs are available in Black, Brown & Grey color. However, i was so unlucky enough the get gold of the black ones as they are immediately reserved with a blink of an eye. So, i have opted for a brown and grey respectively. Waiting for its arrival now… Hopefully it looks good.
Post inspiraton has led me to a shopaholic me again… picture coming soon.
Givenchy obsession. What more to say? Discovered a shoe at a local fashion store that has a similar element from the Givenchy shoes above. Have had a plan in mind to purchase it today. Love the cutouts & its overlapping straps and the protruding back of its heels. These are the points that has got my attention in the first place, plus it is black in color. Hopefully, i am not too late.. Will share it in my upcoming post if i managed to get it on time.
As you go further, you will notice that this will probably be my longest post due to its lengthiness.. Now that i am warning you, don’t be fooled as they are not an interview sessions by other blogger or vice versa but merely a text of what my comments will be for the collages.. These are a few of my all-time favourite stuffs. What driven me to do a collage on this? BlackCoffeeCrumbs as usual… i was visiting her blog yesterday and discovered that it was indeed a good idea to share with all my fellow readers on what are my inspirations and likings. So, here goes…
Window displays – Love to see how creative minds put together pieces of artwork into display… You’ll be supprise to see the numerous creative sets of display, especially during festive & sale seasons! i especially love to see the word “SALE” :D its a powerful word indeed. It even makes a dull window display looks attractive magically & instantly!
Morning dew – Represents freshness and a breath of new life into the day. Especially when i am broke & stress.
Citric juices – Oh! anything that has to do with citrus & sourish drinks will be my favourtie. Especially plum juice! No doubt about that.
Grillings – Anyone who loves to eat, loves grilled stuffs.
Breeze – Strong breeze blows away bad mood, i believe. Even better if its a tornado.
Western cousines – my only way to prove that i am not a China man :D
Universities – That’s where i am put to the test or at least to keep my brain active constantly. You can’t afford to fail any test, else there goes our money! Not just that, i totally love the life in tertiary education.
Vectors – State of art in digital designs. A must for every graphic designers.
Doughnuts – Though i am nuts, i still love doughnuts.
Gift wrapping – The only form of origami that i can master, thank you.
Golden girls – i have always in mind that if ever i’m not married so does my sisters, would love to live the life of the golden girls. Its fun! Me as Dorothy, Wendy as Blanche, Ivy as Rose & mom as Sophia! Oh man, that’s hillarious!
Pistachios – Sad to say, that’s the only nuts i love to eat.
Mocha Frappuchino – Who doesn’t love a frap, is not an organism.
Dream Company – A firm that pays you to enjoy yourself & i am still sending my resume to them from time to time. Haven’t given up yet. Not that soon. Cool company!
German Sheppard – i knew its odd to say this since i’ve already owned a Rotty.. but my very first pick before this would be this breed.
Neat home – Nothing compares to a house with neat garden and interiors. i love my house to be neat & tidy simply because i have an extremely sensitive heart that somehow links to my nose as well.
Town house – If i am single, i would rent / buy a town house & live by my own and probably have a party with family & friends once a while.
iPod Classics – i have owned a Nano, now its time for an upgrade to a Classic one :D i hope my boyfriend reads this, Oh no no, i’d prefer God, He’s more efficient & effective in such provisions, Amen!
Feasts – That’s where all the food are. Will never go out of supplies for food whenever there is feast.
Patio – Spend my evening sitting on a couch having a cup of tea or coffee and chatting with my loved ones.
Money – $$$ Money is important these days, can’t afford to not having or loving them no matter what :D
Kitchen with an island – This is what i called the “Hot-Spot” because its the perfect place to gather everyone to talk while having some snacks or whatever that’s left on the island. Even anything from the chopping board can do good and better still, “fresh from the chopping board to the mouth!” LOL!
Falling in love – Love is a powerful feeling & falling in love is the greatest experience that one can ever been through. Just give me all the good things that occured in a relationship, not the bad ones (No thanks).
Camera – Started to love cameras since the existence of digital ones, used to operate SLRs but never had the chance to appreciate it to the extend. DSLRs are far more convenient for skill-less lazy modern age people, like me.
Caramel popcorn – i can practically live by feeding on popcorns. They are simply delicious, fun & light-weight.
Tulips – The most simplest form of floral, less complicated, yet beautiful.
Greeneries – Give me a field of grass & i can sleep on it effortlessly. 1, 2, 3, Z z z z :D
Happy Family – My Wife & Kids + Family Matters = Favourite Family
Cup of coffee – i am a caffeine addict therefore i should use a Dior Addict perfume.
Baking – Besides savoury cooking, i love baking as much too. i always dream of baking a white cake with lots of cream.
Walk in the park – Wouldn’t be more perfect if its not accompanied by Raven or my loved ones. They are good source of motivation to journey the walk together even its only a mile (Gosh, no wonder i have a pair of chunky thighs!)
Greece – Other than Spain or Italy, my latest holiday obsession is Greece because of their buildings topography, its so fun! i could imagine myself jumping from one block to another like how Jason Bourne did in the Bourne Ultimatum movie :p
Fillet-O-Fish – Ahhh, after having those multiple jumps, i’ll have this for my break time pluss my plum juice.. So refreshing & energizing!
Sweaters – After taking a shower, its always best to wear a sweater as it gives the comfy feel & ease off all chills.
Coffeebean – The aroma is soothing and calm, imagining myself sitting on a couch in my hall room with my sweater on, after bath. Place my laptop on my lap and there goes, i’m feeling the heat from my laptops battery and the wires are tangled up with each other, the mouse, the power cord, the USB hub cord … ArrrrrGh!!! Which is why i hate it when i don’t have a proper workstation to do my work.
Personal Workstation – So i moved my laptop & its peripheral devices to my workstation and i’m feeling organized. So i better stop here..
That’s about for today… Thanks for dropping by and i really appreciate your time spent on my blog & for those whom faithfully visiting i would like to say a BIG THANK YOU! See you all again! Adios~
Another alternative shoe to the Marni Acrylic Wedge that we (me & blackcoffeecrumbs) could not afford to buy (sigh). i have already in my mind to do some minor alterations to this wedge. i am planning to cut off aproximately half to an inch of the back heel so that it will look more like the Marni wedge. But before that, i need to get myself a spare piece of this similar wedge incase experiment failure. As always, i will need to have time for that too ; ) Will keep you all posted once mission accomplished.
i am sorry for the long silence. i have just remembered that i promissed my readers that i will do a post on my city purchases. The above are the accessories that i’ve bought. i have forgotten to snap a picture on those two F21 dresses as well. Umm, let me put it this way, i was interrupted with the massive errands lately. i will, as soon as i am free. Two days back, i have also purchased a coat from MNG and studded hand cuff from Padini. These, i considered as ad-hoc purchases as they were not in my waiting list for sure. The coat was an inspiration from Atlantis Home. It looked very much alike with the one worn by Judy. i will probably match the exact piece as i am so in love with the ensemble. As for the cuff, was from mutemode’s idea & eventually it looks like Balmain’s embelished.studded shoes from a far. i hate to say this but i do realized that sometimes its good to be an extreme copycat, it keeps the brain from thinking hard for once :D. Lastly, i would like to thank all of you who constantly & faithfully visits my blog and for your undying spirit in leaving me cool, educational & kind comments. Just to let you all know that i am a okay in accepting critics as i understand some of you might not like or go along with my taste & opinions. There is a saying, that art is very subjective. Therefore, there is no right or wrong as to which its depends on how well the outcome of a creative / artistic substance captures ones liking : )
Wearing: Crimson V-Neck Top, Green Silk-Chiffon scarf (8ft in length)
The green scarf which i have been talking about lately, is finally here (though its not the real one :D )! But it has all the characteristics of the one in the movie.. It can’t go wrong, its a silk chiffon base material, anyway. It didn’t get me quite long to discover something similar to Patricia Field’s green scarf. They were selling at 80 USD over the net and i’, paying for about 23 MYR which is equivalent to 6.20 USD (exchange rate at 3.60) which is more than 10x cheaper. If i am a rich girl, i swear i would have bought the original Particia Field’s. As for now, i am only able to find a similar buy.
Lanvin Purple Ruffle Dress (fron the movie The Confessions of a Shopaholic)Wearing: Grey Trench Coat, Purple Ruffled Taffeta Top, Black Puffy Skirt (thanks BlackCoffeeCrumbs ! They’re very cool & comfy), MNG Metal Leaf-Buckled Belt, MNG Purple Leather Wedge.
Finally! Saturday is here again and i managed to put on an outfit combination, an inspiration from The Confessions of A Shopaholic movie that i recently watched. i love this movie so much because it very much reminds me as a shopaholic. More post to go on this movie inspiration.. i’m so super-excited as i have finally found the ‘Green Scarf” !

Its back to black time. my wish-list for the day. Look forward for a new trip to the city soon. As usual, due to money issues, will be downgrading my options to something similar to these.
