I rambled on about change and a great year for 2012, but action speaks louder than words. Just because I’ll be studying Interior Architecture instead of Fashion doesn’t mean I’ll stop sewing+designing! I got the ball rolling by spending up pretty much all of my Christmas money on boxing day sales at fabric stores. I started doodling my summer wardrobe ideas on practice exam papers back in october, colour, pattern and a more floaty silhouette filled my visions. This is what I’ve made so far:Colour block orange and purple blousePurple lace and chiffon tie neck blouseBlue star patterned blouseGrey patterned tie neck blousePaint stroke tie neck blouseGrey twist shoulder topWhite twist shoulder topBlack twist shoulder topBlack chiffon midi skirtPurple two toned maxi skirtPaint stroke midi skirtTeal chiffon midi skirtGrey patterned ruffled maxi skirtGrey and black block skirtGrey and black body con skirt
I can’t believe I use to swear against wearing anything longer than a mini. What are your essentials this summer? Or winter if you’re on the opposite hemisphere?
PS. Keep your eyes peeled, I might be adding a few new pieces for sale ;)

I’ve lost the remote to my Nikon, which makes outfit photos 1000x longer to take, how did I use to function without one?! Guess we’ll have to make do with over exposed and out of focus photos for a while…Colour block blouse: My own design Black mid-length skirt: My own design Jacket: Huckabees Jewelry: Gifted, eBay, My own design Studded pumps: Louboutin
Fingers crossed I find my remote soon! I have so many new designs to show!
PS. 600th post! Wooh!!
PPS. I got into Interior Architecture at Monash University so I think I’m heading down that lane, not exactly my utmost ultimate dream (fashion), nor a typical ‘make-your-asian-parents-proud’ Commerce at Melbourne U, but still a really great course and one I’ll be going into with a very open heart(and brain)! Any Monash readers?

The holiday season is well and truly over, and whether we like it or now, we’re all heading back to our old routines. I’ve had a hectic festive season and wish I had time to knock together a farewell 2011 post. 2011 was an amazing year, I was in The Age newspaper and Dolly magazine, finished high school and created around 100 garments and accessories. I hope 2012 is just as full of laughs, adventure and opportunities, for my academia (starting Uni!) and for my creative outlets(might give this blog and my website a facelift it desperately needs). It’s funny that whenever I feel the urge to do an outfit post it is always when there’s a sudden change in temperature. Change inspires me I guess haha.Navy Shirt: Teenie Weenie Patterned skirt: My Own Design Camel Blazer: LFDM Bicolour tights: Voodoo Spectator brogues: Rivers Fox ring: eBay
