My Outfit Today

I wore this to a dance performance last Thursday: Ruffle-sleeves white top and mustard yellow belt from People of Asia. Nestled among the ruffles are 2 fabric roses! Brown pants from Blum. Lime green Purple Anemone clutch with pink flower pin.

I love rompers and jumpsuits! I can't resist getting them when I see nice ones in the shops. They usually come with side pockets and I dig that. These are not the most convenient (think restroom) apparel to wear but they always look great. Found these lovely vintage pieces on ebay:

This black piece is so gorgeous with gold details and strategic criss-cross at the back:This nautical-inspired jumpsuit with flattering collars is simply irresistable: Cute Hawaii print romper in a fabulous color: Love this vintage high-waist jumpsuit with pastel rainbow stripes and puff sleeves:

All Onboard!

Although I can't tell the difference between starboard and port, a style that I've always liked are nautical-inspired dresses. There's something about the colors and the stripes that convey naughty and nice all at once. Some ebay sellers are selling vintage children's clothing as mini dresses for grown-ups too. If the dresses fit, why not? There are lots of lovely children's sailor inspired dresses!

Nothing beats this fabulous Bettie Page dress though:

The white and navy dress below looks similar to my Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. The only visible difference is the ribbon in front: the MJ dress does not have a real ribbon, instead it is a 2D sewed-on ribbon. This looks great too though:

This is a fantastic vintage navy-inspired jacket. According to the seller, it was once a little girl's jacket, great for petite girls:

Of Little Birds (and Chickens)

I saw the picture below from Little Bird and the little fabric bird in the photo immediately caught my eye! The Little Bird (pun intended) told me that it can be purchased from etsy here. The seller has made such lovely fabric birds! The fabrics are so pretty and I want them all! This pair of lovebirds is one of my favourite:
By coincidence, while doing research for work (for something totally unrelated to this) today, I found this green chicken rocking chair at Hayon Studio:
This is what the designer said about this piece: "The chicken, a rather unexplored shape, found its place amongst my green dreams. I wanted to portray this common bird as a sensational object by amplifying its characteristics and dimensions, turning it into a modern piece, one of great beauty and utility: a rocking chair. The movement, subtle and constant, would give the object a zoom-like trait, a sense of speed and dynamism. My green chicken had taken on a face, a shape, a place and a function."

This piece of work is like my dream furniture: it's green (my fave color), it's in one of my favourite shapes and it will fit perfectly with my new home decor (house decoration in progress). This is totally whimsical and absolutely rocks (pun intended again)! :)

Schoolboy Blazers

I'm in lust with the red schoolboy blazer from Topshop after seeing it featured in the latest issue of Seventeen Singapore. I didn't see it in the Suntec City boutique and hope that it is still in store elsewhere in Singapore although I'm quite sure it is not part of the latest collection.

While surfing the net, I found this Kate Moss for Topshop Boyfriend blazer too. Love how the sleeves are folded and the sober color is definitely more wearable than the red blazer.

Brown Heart Shades

I finally got these brown heart shades from ebay! I did not get the black heart shades, chic as they were, as I had too many sunglasses in black.

I love these! They are as great as promised! They are cute, but not overly so and definitely great fun to wear!
