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

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.

20110918-043053.jpg

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.

attempted smart casual.

I went to my friend’s wedding the other day.

Its supposed to be smart casual, but I don’t think I do smart very well.

The priest, as he arrived, asked me if I was the bride, I didn’t realise he was talking to me.

Later he beckoned me over and asked

priest : are you the bride?
me: oh, haha. no la.
priest: oh. because if not I would have asked you to change to trousers.
me: *in head* WHATTHEFUX? DOMYSEXYLEGSOFFENDYOU?

!!

if I had been the bride imagine how I would feel!
if its a bride’s wedding day, she should be able to wear whatever she likes!
anyway. I love my gloves *-*

jewel hairband, 4 GBP, primark
lace gloves, $25, arab st
costume vintage ring, 5 euro, paris
mustard top $12, bangkok
sunglasses, marc by marc jacobs, $200
victorian angel necklace, $12, bangkok
black pumps $30, NEWLOOK

I just wrote neckless instead of necklace xD
rackless is getting to me.

my decoden handphone case D.I.Y-ed

So I bought a casing for Magdelena, my berry. and decoden-ed the shit out of it. woots.

shes now very pink and very blinged / zhnged / deco-ed, below are the pictures of her in full decoden glory.

most of the crystals are swarovski, which is why it glitters so pretty.


I know right, so pretty. (:

panda hair ties, they make you feel 10.

I brought out my Panda Hair Ties which I bought in Bangkok, and decided to. wear them.
holy. I don’t know how I summoned the courage to even step out of the house lol.

I love them though, they really make me feel about 10 years old.
and of course everyone on the street took me absolutely seriously with hair like this. obviously. how could they not?

again, my camera is crap but this is what I wore my Pandas out with.

my baseball jacket is LOVE, its super versatile simply because it IS A BASEBALL JACKET, meaning its so damn casual you could wear it with everything.
I got it in Paris *insert SmugFace*

army shorts from BKK go well with a normal white tank.

I’m lucky I don’t work in the corporate world.
