quit harping on the fact that it is not 2009 yet. i blogged now; only because i already plans for the new year. and furthermore, awal muharam, following the islamic calender, it is already new year last sunday. :D
past year has been really a memorable one, with lots of things that had happened, the tears that were shed and the joy that were shared, so i wish to start this year on a clean slate.
i haven't been going out much, due to my mom's recent demise, so i did a lot of cleaning up in my wardrobe to get rid of clothes and misc that no longer enthuse me [half of which were already given to my maid, lucky her] and get new ones for the new 09.
one fact, is that i hate shopping in malls. i always find that local stores clothes are always one step back in terms of fashion if compared with US/UK's stores. what's on clearance in the US/UK stores are always seen as new arrivals in our local stores, so i took the liberty to shop online instead. minus the killer shipping fees, online shopping always somewhat offer a whole lot more of variety and choices and ease; since i do not have to actually manually hunt for a particular item like say, shopping in a local store. you just have gotta google it. :D
my choice of colours for 09 is more drawn to the darker hues and no bright REDS / PINKS because of mom.
some of the recent hauls for the 09.
its accumulative. RLY. couldn't update last week due to Mom. it's not like i shop that much, ha ha.
TOPSHOP Pointelle Frill Sleeve Top in Dark Purple as shown £16.00
Pointelle v-neck top with frill sleeves and a tie belt. 100% Viscose. Machine washable.
It looks really really nice in real life. Especially with its versatile tie belt.
URBAN OUTFITTERS Roped Boat Belt Probably USD 20+?
Been looking high and low for something like that. I love clothes and accessories that have rope elements as part of their construction. I know the whole nautical thing is over and done, and I'm fine with that; I was never that into anchor motifs anyway, but I do love slighty yacht-y, nantucket-ish rope details. It's a look that works every summer, I think, whether nautical is in style or not. That's my rope accessory advice, for what it's worth.
Hippie Lippie's Thina SG$25.50 which is so damn gorgeous! I like its details, especially the sash that goes through the loop and then tied at the front.
HerVelvetVase's Bicycle Neckline FrockSG$19 Breath takingly breezy and chic. That's all I would say.
Isaac Mizrahi for Target® Wrap Dress - Floral Chintz
My target dresses that I ordered on the 5th December finally arrived. Paid $42.62 in total with shipping out of US to my house and local postage and everything. Each dress cost SG$21.31 with shipping inclusive. Shipping is $6.98 per dress. I guess I have to save them after Mom's 100 days because wearing them now is just inappropriate, the reds.
ALLOY'S V Neck tunic in IVORY USD 27.60 ON SALE. Details here: x
With front patch pockets. 28" long. Made with our supersoft cozy yarn. Acrylic/Nylon/Spandex. By Alloy. Black, Ivory, Teal. Imported.
I don't even know why I got this. Particularly because I dont really like wearing long sleeved. Probably I try attempting winter white with black tights and buckled motorcycle boots.
FOREVER21 Silk Shrug Tie Front Cardigan.
I like this! I dunno, but I reckon it will work well with tube dresses for lectures and it a fresh take from all those boring looking black cardigans with buttons, that you do not even use to button which just makes you sick with a high fever.
ABERCROMBIE & FITCH grey pocket cardigan USD 44.50
I really like Miss Hudgens' look. Uber great for cold lecture days, minus the high stockings and the boots.
ALLOY lace corset dress. USD 41.50 Details: x
I love the use of it in this faux-bustier cut frock. Just so girly!!!
I WANTED TO GET THIS BUT DID NOT BECAUSE IT IS DAMN EXPENSIVE & I TEND TO NOT WEAR MY CLOTHES MORE THAN THRICE. :/
M.A.C Mineralized SkinFinish in Petticoat from Nordstrom. LIMITED EDITION. [ USD 25 X 1.53 ] + [ SHIPPING $3 + REGISTERED LOCAL 4.09 ] = SG$45.34
A luxurious velvet-soft powder with high-frost metallic finish. Smoothes on: adds buffed-up highlights to cheeks, brows, anywhere on the body: provides an ultra-deluxe polish to the skin.
This item is not available in Singapore and throughout frikking Asia for god know's what during its Sheer minerals launch so I just have to gotta order it online. I am a sucker for MAC MSF, already fell in love with Gold Spill and Northern Lights which I currently have because it gives me that glow blushers couldn't give. It is a bit costly at almost $50 but it is super huge and can last you pretty long.
M.A.C Mineralized Blush in NUANCE from the Sonic Chic Collection LIMITED EDITION
From local stores for SG$36
Nuance, which is described by MAC as a 'Mid-tone peach with gold pearl', which is spot on. It is really this gorgeous bright peachy/pink fusion shade. Nuance has great colour payoff and a buttery smooth texture that is not even remotely glittery.
YES, I LOVE MAC STUFFZXX TO THE MAXXX ESP ESP THEIR MINERALIZED COLLECTIONZXZ.
Everyday Minerals' Olive-Golden Medium x 2
[USD3.47 X 1.53] X 2 + [SHIPPING $2.48] = EACH FOUNDATION SG$6.55 My foundation shade! Remember in this haul post I made a blunder and ordered the wrong foundation shade? I re-ordered so that I could get my shade. HAHA, haven't been using foundation of the late, and only use loose powder. I ordered with some others so that I will not be paying USD 12 for each :D
Victoria's Secret Classic Speedy Hand Bag (the small round shape edge bag)
A very beautiful classic now in even more gorgeous colors. Made of very good quality canvas material that wouldn't dirty easily. The pink pipping, handles and logo plate are made of high gloss PVC material. One zip pocket inside. Gold tone hardware. Item looks even greater in person. You will want to be seen carrying this.
Color : Tan with Pink pipping
Size : 11"(L) x 6"(B) x 7"(H)
WAHAHAHA, DAMN NICE!
I LIKE PINK!~
