Limited Edition Gift Box Design

All purchases from Purple Anemone are packaged lovingly in a royal purple gift pouch.

A customer, Sam, requested for a gift box for a necklace to a friend instead. Hence, I created this unique box design especially for her using a transparent box, black velvet ribbon, maroon ribbon with gold trimmings and 3 frosted floral beads.
I'm always happy to create new gifting designs! :)

Chloe Sally Bag

This Chloe Sally bag is so beautiful in its simplicity. The shape is chic and goes perfectly with the leather and metal strap. The purple calfskin leather is gorgeous and soft. There is also a smaller version with an additional zippered opening on top at the local Chloe boutique although I just can't find a picture of it online. The last I checked, it was available in white and red calfskin and in a beige snakeskin version.

The service at the Ngee Ann City Chloe boutique is also superb!

Sequin Cap

I've been extremely busy these few weeks and am glad for the opportunity to shop around last and this Sat for a short while. I tried on a white sequin jacket from Zara's Studio range but unfortunately the size M jacket was too big for me (surprise, surprise). The jacket is so beautiful and it has rekindled my love for all things sequined.

Happily, I found this sequin cap from The Hereen instead! It's ultra-bling and with a pair of sunglasses, I can pretend I'm a celebrity moving around incognito.

This cap is also available in silver and gold.

Other Juicy Charms

My small collection of Juicy Couture charms, which consist of the gum ball machine in the previous entry, a lipstick that can be rotated up and down to reveal more or less of the pink part and a cheque book:

The cheque book can be opened to reveal a cheque inside. I wonder how Banque De Juicy is doing in this global financial crisis:

Bubble Gum Charm

I love Juicy Couture charms! This is the latest in my very small collection: a bubble gum charm with interesting details. Don't think I will be using this anytime soon, just going to have fun looking at it for now.

The Teenage Textbook and Workbook

After reading Fashion Nation's entry about The Teenage Textbook ("TTTB") movie last night, I promptly searched for the book and its sequel, The Teenage Workbook ("TTWB") from the study for a dose of nostalgia. I'm so glad to be able to find them, even though they are in a tattered condition and some pages have already come undone. It evoked a strange feeling when I see in childish handwriting my name and the date "10 September 1988" written on the first page of TTTB. It's been a long while.

The books are about life in junior college for a few students (and their teachers) and their adventures and misadventures on Valentine's Day (coincidentally, today is Valentines' Day, so have a great day!). An except from the Introduction of the TTTB:

"They say growing up is hard. That's rubbish. Anyone can grow up. Most people do (except perhaps DJs).

The problem is Teenhood.

That's right. Teenhood - that period of life between your tender 13 years and your naughty 19s. Everything is a mess. You have crushes. You have pimples. You have crushed pimples.

Worry no more. These books are for you.

Books? That's right...this book is actually a combination of two books.

One is a true story about some people I once knew at school. Some were nice, although one was a real creep. They were very unique people, mainly because they were perfectly normal, typical teenagers.

The other book is called The Teenage Textbook.

It's a book that teaches you how to survive your teenhood. It answers each and every one of the most important questions a teenage would everask himself, like"How will I know if I'm in love?" (p.56), "Why is there so much pain and suffering in this world?" (p.256) and "if there is intelligent life on Earch then why do people still watch wrestling matches?" (p.205)." "

It's not as funny as I remembered it to be (have I became more humourless?) but I still enjoyed the feelings of nostalgia reading about the trials and tribulations of the characters late into the wee hours of the night.

Information about the books if you are interested: Both were written by Adrian Tan and published by Hotspot Books.

Right after Christmas on the 26th of December, I went out, all ready to charge at the post-Christmas sales and promptly bought from River Island a studded headband which was NOT on sale. Haha
