Sun-glass's half full

The Chanel shades Mk has on are mindblowingly awesome. Am going to wait for inspired ones to get into the highstreet stores (crosses fingers) to see if I can pull them off a fraction of how Mk totally rocks them.

Haha, can you actually tell that I have this much time on hand at work? I'm actually blogging daily now!

All year round

Just when I was grousing earlier about how bland my b&w outfits for summer is, Helmut Lang reassures me that its not. In fact, some of the classic white tank-black mini outfits seen in his Resort collection is similar, if not exactly the same to the ones I don almost every other day!

Unlike Calvin Klein who churns out dull and unflattering pieces, Lang's minimalisitic aesthestic is really clean and appealing. Bonus, is that every item in this collection is easily translatable for any day of the year!

C'est le printemps!

I've been dressing in monochromatic hues of black and white and I reckon it's about high time I get into le mode du printemps! So I've been hitting and checking out the resort collections...
Missoni Resort 2008
Thank you, Angela, for not overdoing the whole knit thing you have done, reinterpreted, reinvented and redone till grandmoms are sick of it. Because this little knit toga is actually kind of cute, and really a pretty little outfit for spring/summer! Of course, a huge floppy beach hat would totally complete the look... just saying.

This colourblock thing everyone's been doing for their Resort lines... I'm giving you mad props for pulling it off better than the rest! While I'm not too crazy about the colours you've going on there, I really like the striking contrast of the hues you've chosen, and how that horizontal sash seems to pull the whole look together. Was not trying to pull a pun there... but haha sometimes I crack myself up when I'm freezing and bored in the office. Zzz..

Florals are huge this year, and hence because of the sublimal sartorial influence, I like this piece. Mainly cause its not crazy pajama-print-florals all the girls are wearing on the streets, and neither is it ugly brush strokes masquerading as flowers, but almost, like a painting of the gardens of Narnia.

Nicely done here this season, Missoni, unlike a certain Mr Wang, who seems to have been replaced by a ghost This Fashion designer for this Resort season. Tut tut, really!

In all truth, I'm a tad disapppointed actually; none of the designers have picked up on honest-to-goodness resort-chic. Gonna pull it off all on my own this season then, of course with the help of the mother's plastic. Hehe.

And surely, no outfit is complete without a sac to tote your essentials around, no?

Sweet, sweet fringe from Gojane. I've kind of pigeonholed my overall aesthestic and think I'm kind of rockandroll-hippie. Kind of.

Not as awesome as the one above, but still lovely in its own pseudo-hippie right. From Forever21. Sigh.. Have been waiting for sprees from these two sites for the longest time ever!

This one I'll die to get my hands on cause it is the perfect summer sac!! Total steal at 1,230US$ from Givenchy!! Just that at this moment it means that I've got to go steal from a bank or something. Gonna wait it out and see how this obsession with it goes!

Outfit du jour

I know, this Alexander Wang outfit is one season behind... but the umkempt chicness this ensemble exudes does help to psych me for my situps so that this will be my summer outfit all summer long.

That is, if i dare to bare, of course...

Rain garb

There was a heavy drizzle when I left the house today, and immediately this outfit came to mind. 

Havent seen it out on the streets yet, despite it being at least a season old. Really need to get my hands on a dress like this, seeing that the weather here is so unpredictable! Hehe.

Think I finally know what I want for my 21st... just wondering how am I to secure a prvate jet in time for it!

You say AA I'll say High!

After half a year of erratic deliberation, I've finally ordered them- the American Apparel Shiny High-waist leggings in Lame Matte Black! I know, I know; I swore that I'd never don leggings cause they are not pants!

But see, these are shiny! And High-waisted! And they look like leather! How often is it you get to look like Catwoman on a normal day!

Haha I seriously cant wait to get my hands on them come AW2008 Sem 1, aka Autome/Hiver 2008. If they are as awesome as I imagine them to be then perhaps Black Eel you can be mine too... Stay tuned.

Maxi pleasure

Shopping in Singapore is the pants. I can already imagine all the heads bobbing in agreement. Why did I say that? Because I cant find any maxi dresses here, and to think that this silly little city thinks and aims to be the fashion hub of Asia. Travesty, really!

Maybe I'll just dust my sewing machine and try my hand at ripping off one of the below. Maybe. not.

Roberto Cavalli S/S 2008
I liked the inspired version of this dress that Zara had, but someone sniffed at it. Tsk. I still like how prettily comfortable for lazy summer days it is, while showcasing a seemingly slim silhouette.

Roberto Cavalli S/S 2008
I've been searching for that one perfect peasant dress, and here it is, possibly costing more than 10 times my internship pay. oh, woe loves me.

Lanvin S/S 2008

Kenzo S/S 2008
