Bordeaux Lace Skirt

August 22, 2010 § 9 Comments

I was in love with Dolce and Gabbana’s Spring summer 10 collection, the underwear as outerwear, lace and net combination sent me into a frenzy.

After extensive searching, I’m still looking for a perfect underwear as outerwear body suit but I have found a perfect lace skirt! Well to be more precise, in true Angela fashion, I made it!.

It’s the piece I’ve made since my LBD! I’ve been stuck under the avalanche of homework and because of setting and packing up time involved in sewing it’s not something I can do everyday anymore. I was so excited, I decided to wear it today!

With a cashmere cardigan, simple tee, Mimco necklace, Lanvin chain flats, Alex Wang Coco, simple watch and ring!

Get ready for next weekend folks, because I’m having a wardrobe cleanout! I’m not sure whether to just do it all on ebay or just use my blog. What do you think? Also! I might be doing a little tweaking and ASAB might go under the knife for a facelift or some botox, a brighter, more simple layout could do both you (as readers) and me some good.

PS. Why yes, I did get a haircut!  2.5 inches off and it’s also been thinned out, such a relief! It actually use to hurt my neck when wet it in the shower, that’s how insanely thick my hair was! But I also sort of miss it, just a tad ;)

Mimco: An Unpredictable Revolution

August 15, 2010 § 19 Comments

Not too long ago Mimco launch Part Deux of the  ‘An Unpredictable Revolution’ collection featuring the beautiful Emma Balfour. I was lucky enough to be selected and sent one of their delightful pieces! This collection is the story torn from the pages of a dark debutante’s diary…Taking inspiration from the 1700s – 1800s, it embodies the romance and darkness of the era. This is one of the stories:

‘Darkness Becomes Her’

There once lived a curious, carefree,  girl. The kind to wear super colourful outfits, wore plaits and walk around with grazed knees. One day she stumbled upon a book…

But my oh my! It wasn’t just a book, there was something hidden inside!

There was a pouch, a sealed letter, a key and a picture of a beautiful girl!

She then opened the pouch to see a beautiful necklace of tangled stones and chain. It was the most beautiful thing she had  ever seen!

But little did she know this necklace had magical powers when she put it on. With a swish and a swosh…s

She was transformed!

Her old colourful clothes were gone, and in their place was a long flowing black velvet gown and suede shoes. Lipstick magically appeared on her lips.

It an unpredictable revolution, and she liked it ;)

Fin.

Thanks mimco :)! Everyone, go, check out the gorgeous collection and experience the unpredictable revolution for yourselves!  

Outfit notes – Pre-Rev: Self decorated K-mart tank, wool vintage skirt, online jellies

                  – Post-Rev: Angela Yang Designs gown, Sogui eli giorgia cut out pumps

Newly acquired

August 10, 2010 § 13 Comments

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; there is nothing like the feeling of putting new stuff in your wardrobe. I like to think of my wardrobe as a house and all my garments as family members, making room and introducing new pieces to the old ones, putting them with others and hope they get along… Nah, that sounds insane, but could you imaging though? If clothes could talk , what would they say? Plaid skirt to polka dot top “sorry man, we’re over, it’s not you it’s me, I’ve been unfaithful with the white shirt, but you and those shorts look real good together” (wow, that sounds even more bat shit crazy). Moving on, I made a trip to Savers a while back and for once, I wasn’t disappointed! I found this lovely black lace dress with a nice, low U-back.

 

And a velvet jacket (great canvas to work on, I’m thinking a good altering so it’s more snug, white trim and new buttons?)

 

My aunt also recently visted us and HMDed these darlings, they’re a tad worn and a little big small but designer shoes are still designer shoes.

Nude Louboutins (Gotta get the black rubber heel bits replaced)

 

Black chain Lanvins (the bottoms quite worn and they’re surprisingly heavy but they look so good!)

 

Have you bought/acquired anything awesome lately?

PS. My laptop’s got a virus! So I’ve moved everything onto the desktop and it’s just not the same :( It’ll take a day or two for me to re-adjust to Vista after using 7.

PPS. Like my drawing?

Neutral agreement

Sometimes, it’s not the bright outfits that stand out most, a good neutral emsemble is pretty fun too!

* A few people have been commenting about my picture quality, they’re better when you enlarge them, the auto resized ones are a bit blurry, I know but it’s not something I can fix.

Where Am I?
