Vogue coffee table, literally.

Do you have too many vogue magazines lying around? magazines you’ve bought over the years but can’t bear to throw away cause they cost you a staggering amount of money?

(honestly I get depressed when I calculate how much I spend on magazines)

frent not! heres a way to store your magazines and have a new coffee table ūüėÄ

shes hilarious. I would translate the video but I’m too lazy.

I would totally do this, but it wouldn’t only be the corners of the table, it would fill up the whole thing.

have fun with your new Vogue, coffee table ^_^

truely Vogue. bisous

Versace for H&M trippy ad!

All I’ve been hearing about lately is the collection by Versace for H&M and I finally saw the ad for it! totally trippy lol.

I think that, like all big brand collabs this collection is going to sell out in minutes.  people are going to buy it and then sell it on ebay. ):

/edit INFACT, the collection is LAUNCHED TODAY and stores got wiped out in 30 minutes flat.  wow the power of Versace.

the prints are abit reminicent of alexander mcqueen’s atlantis collection,

but maybe its just me xD

its just the sheer amount of print in it.

even though it IS H&M, a label known for having relatively low prices on their clothes. as its a collab with one of the most well known fashion brands, the prices are not exactly the most pocket friendly. A jacket like the one above retailing for S$199.

and the skirt below going at S$119

but enough of all that, I’ve looked through the collection and here are my favorites

gold sequin leopard, S$199
black doll dress $249

black faux fur, $119

black leather jacket, S$399

the leather stuff is very pretty, however I’m really not a fan of that greek-like detailing in studs, it just looks like housing decor to me. but it is VERY versace, and he used it from the beginning of the brand.

what’ve I’ve always admired about Versace is how they sell SEX, and s&m and its just sexy, body con dresses and everything, Ms. Donatella did not change this even after she took over after her brother in 98′

92′ bondage collection

If you were to watch one of the old versace runway shows, you would understand why they call it a Cat walk, because all the women were so sexy and really just like cats.

heres abit of trivia about Versace and old shows and the man himself!

Versace himself talking about his favorite fabric, silk!

Donatella’s first show, in this video you also get to see all the big models grace the runway, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Carmen Kass etc etc.

actually thinking about it, this collection for H&M is pretty reminicent of Versace 1991′


RIGHT?

I went quite abit into fashion past today, tell me if you’d like to see more of stuff like this?

happy shopping my pretties, xoxo

its 11 11 11 zomg! black pumps newlook review!

Image

So since today is 11 11 11 I must! Repeat, MUST post something! Also I’m trying out the wordpress phone app for blogging and I just figured out how to insert photos.

What I wanted to talk about are black flat ballerina pumps, I’ve owned at least 10 pairs previously so I can call myself somewhat an expert on the subject!

The pair I owned the longest was a pair from top shop costing a wooping $70 on discount, but the soles weren’t big enough and the sides grew holes from a lot of wearing after awhile, and so I threw them away.
Since then all my black pumps have lasted no more than 3 months before giving way.

I bought two pairs from newlook awhile back (it was a buy 1 get the 2nd one for $2 sale for their 2nd anniversary) and so far they are holding up super well. I wear my pumps to club and all girls can vouch that that’s where your shoes will show you what they’re made of.
Thus far, they don’t look worn as of yet (see picture for proof) and are not ripping or developing holes or flaking off. Which is amazing.

In conclusion, I recommend buying newlook pumps as a warddrobe black pumps basic (:

Cause every girl needs a pair of shoes to go with everything.

Tell me your thoughts, ponders and experiences below!

Outfits: An Excuse

Actually, to be very brutally honest. I don’t know what is so awesome about these outfits. They’re really, really, really, dead simple to put together.

But I guess it’s just an excuse to take photos of myself while I look good. And heck, I might as well post them after I’ve gone through all that trouble of taking them right?

The green top is definitely the outfit maker here.

20111029-213816.jpg

Curious enough, 2 years ago I would have sworn I would never wear a horizontally stripped skirt because I’m rather conscious of my larger hips and thighs. But thin stripes, the curve hugging structure, the darker tone of the fabric and the fact that it is highwaisted (or rather that i’m wearing it highwaisted) lets me get away with it, with a trophy in hand.

20111029-213821.jpg

The outfit above, I wore to work and a few meetings in the same day (phwoar!!), the outfit below was to a cinema to watch Real Steel with my colleagues. (it was an ok movie)

It’s amazing what a good fitted tank top and jeans can do.

And a quick peace sign to wrap it all up.

Holographic Freak.

I’ve been super obsessed with Holographic Nail polish for the longest time, trying to get a hold of a bottle of Gosh’s epic concoction, but I haven’t been able to part with 30 pounds for a bottle of polish.

and THANKFULLY I DIDN’T, the Make Up Store has put their brains together and realised the frantic CRAZE for holopolish, and came up with their holo version. Its really pretty, and super linear.

Heres how I applied it and a review!

SO story of when I bought it. *rolls eyes.

I’m not a retard when it comes to holo polish, but the girl who tried to sell it to me sure as hell thought I was -__-”

I was super off my ass excited when I saw the holo polish on the shelf, and for $20 thats really steep for a nail polish especially since my nails aren’t long anymore.

So this sales assistant (The Make Up Store, Vivo City) came up to me and was telling me all about the holo and how amazing it was, and how it gets sold out just like that.
So I’m not really listening to her because I already know how amazing it is and I’m just trying to find the¬†strength¬† in me to part with $20 for a little bottle of liquid.

UNTIL, she starts going on about the AQUA BASE, (it kinda went like this. and I’m not imagining her talking to me like an idiot, I KNOW she was cause my boyfriend mentioned it first)
sales ass: Oh its really amazing, but you really have to buy it with the aqua base because it’ll make the effect better and longer lasting, the holo will last way longer with the aqua base! you should really get it.
me: ohrly. how much is it.
sales painintheass: $20! its amazing.
me: I already have holo on my nails and they look just fine, is it really a great difference?
painintheass: YES, and if you wanna buy it you should buy it now because it’ll go out of stock really fast, and you will regret not buying the aqua base, so its better to buy it now rather than making two trips (holy god, this girl is whipping out logistics at me.)
me: er no, thanks its okay.
painintheass: are you sure? it’ll go out of stock.
me: yes I’m sure.
painintheass: *goes behind counter, doesn’t say anything more, puts it in a bag for me, and gives it to me. SHE DIDN’T EVEN SAY THANK YOU OR GOOD BYE. OMG.
I’ve never seen a sales assistant SOUR even AFTER I buy something.

the conversation was longer than this, I shortened down her pushy sales skills.

Sales assistant in The Make Up Store Vivo City. you’re a bitch. #truefacts

Oh and I wanted to leave you guys with another nail art how to, its super pretty:

Feeding The Shoe Monster

20111015-161343.jpg

Recently, I ordered and received these gorgeous shoes in the mail! For a while I thought these got lost because they took much longer than normal to arrive, but it was the Presidential Election/Hari Raya weekend so I guess the post office sorting centre took a few days off.

20111015-161358.jpg

I got these heels because I wanted them to technically replace my awesome Aldo Destiny heels in Camel. Replace them because the Aldo ones are a little too expensive for me to want to scuff them, actually that’s not the whole truth, I mean, shoes are meant to be worn right? I’m not fussy like that, but in all honest truth, the Aldo ones are a little too loose and a little too tall to walk in, so as much as I love them, I had to put them on reserve for those few and far, seated occasions only.

20111015-161406.jpg

First, you’ll notice the difference in colour which is a bummer because the ALDOs are about my skin tone, which gives me that elongated “nude-no shoes look”.

20111015-161419.jpg

Next, you’ll notice the difference in the heights. Which is a good thing in this case because I wanted them a little shorter.

So I guess these aren’t exact replacements, but they’ll do.

Much Love,
Karen.
