Playing Barbie

"Dress shabbily, they notice the dress.
Dress impeccably, they notice the woman."

I'm not much of a fashion buff but when it comes to dressing up(or down), I love attires that exude sexy bad-ass vibe, clothing that acknowledges femininity with masculine undertones. Apparently, floral dresses and combat boots can be best friends after all:) Retro style is also a win for me, along with Kristen Stewart bed hair (not the mullet).

2009 is indeed, the year to let loose and be merry. So, what's you biggest fashion experiment this year?

Go Lait Fai-eh

"Be my friend

Hold me, wrap me up

Unfold me

I am small

and needy

Warm me up

And breathe me.."

I love that song

I love<----this picture.

I love Week 2 of November

Come Monday, it's Hideous Week 3:(

Picture Perfect

When I get married, I mean before I actually get married, vows, rings and all, I'm gonna make sure that I have at least one pre-wedding picture like this.

My future husband and I, on a bike. Me wearing a white dress (so that people know it's a wedding picture. Still, Kristen looks great! ). Him..emm, exactly like what Rob is wearing in this picture. A wall-sized version of that picture will be of the walls in our future home.
I haven't met my future husband..yet.
I hope he loves the camera! haha

Body Conscious

Your dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman
loose enough to show you're a lady.

Edith Head

I absolutely adore this goddess of a dress. It exudes a sexy-classy elegance without the slutty undertones. Body Con, they call it. Some said you have got to have a toned body = flat stomach to pull it off. So, the basic rule is - the stomach must not protrude significantly, but that's not really a big problem, is it? Three solutions come to mind:

1. choose a dark/brown patterns. These colors are the most forgiving for a bumpy stomach.
2. Do buy a size bigger. Body con dresses are clingy, tight fitting types. So no 'oversize' issues here.
3. Corsets

Should I just ignore the fact that I have no current occasion to wear it to? What if BodyCon becomes a cliche next year? The dress will rot to death in my closet!
Oh well, a girl can never have too many dresses. or shoes.

p/s Jess loves ASOS :)

Take Five

"It's fine to recline on the flat of one's spine,
With never a thought in one's head:
It's lovely to be staring up at the sky

When others are ear
ning their bread.
It's great to feel one with the soil and the sun,

Drowned deep in the grasses so tall;

Oh it's noble to sweat, pounds and dollars to get,

But - it's grand to do nothing at all"

-"Laziness" by Robert William Service
