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 😀

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

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:

hey guys, fake haul post!

I have actually bought 4 pairs of shoes recently but I haven’t felt up to wearing them and taking pictures. sooo.

Since I’m broke ass, I decided to go window shopping on etsy, haven’t done that in ages. so. here we go 😀

(clicking on image brings you to the page to buy the item.)

saw this on the front page, it SO PRETTY, it looks broken and falling apart. and it looks so useddd! and fragile. lol. I speak of it as though a bird. I love things that look like they’re destroyed ❤

from the same shop, I LOVE THESE, the shape is so pretty! but I don’t quite know what to make of the red beading detail….
it looks abit like… a plant disease? I don’t know, is it so ugly its right? or pure ugly? help me.

the perfect head band. to either have people think you’re absolutely off your rocker, or fashion forward, I pick the latter.

what it looks like on, I doubt the antlers will stay up all day though. IDK. its so fucking cute I’d wear it anyway.

thus far everything’s been from the same shop xD

beautiful scarf, for any occasion. I can see someone just wearing this, drinking coffee at starbucks. white tank and jeans.

beautiful statement making but very tame gloves. pieces like this still, I feel, are statement making, and the best part is because they are not in completely screaming “LOOK AT ME” you could pair this with other quirky pieces.

these are cuffs, they don’t come with the shoe. AKA, YOU CAN PUT THEM ON ANY PAIR OF SHOES YOU LIKE!

I love the romantic feel these ooze.

simple, almost common, design now. but still ever eerie and ever pretty.

I want this one so bad. but then again I’ve always been a sucker for wings.
the face is abit strange, but I think it adds to the rustic-ness of it, n’est pas?

OKAY, I’m going to have to stop here. I can’t window shop anymore or I’ll actually buy something.

Please tell me if you all like this kinda post so I’ll do it more often 😀

ALL ITEMS HAVE BEEN LINKED TO PURCHASING SITE, none of the images are mine. If you wanna buy them, CLICK 😀

Mag Mail

I got this in my letterbox earlier this week, it’s an awesome package that comes in every two months, and in my honest opinion, well worth the subscription.

I like that Alexis has more fashion spreads than the average magazine around, and that also means less of that cringe-worthy advice that seems to generate itself every 5 pages.

This stuff is good and you’d really need to flip your fingers through these pages to get it, but I’ve put together a little sample of their latest issue so you get an idea of what I’m going at.(vol006, yes, that young!)

So many pretty pages, and you’re so able to tell which are my favourites. Pick Alexis up at good bookstores, some 7-11s sell them too. Otherwise past issues can be bought and subscriptions made on their website. Follow them on twitter too.
