If you blogger-shopaholics out there hasn't already know, ASOS is having a massive mid-season sale. I bought some $20 and under stuff from there. Whee!
Which reminds me, I don't really see the need to actually go shopping in Malaysia when I go back for my summer holidays anymore. Ngah! I am so satisfied with my current wardrobe!
Printed Culottes - 8 pounds.
If you haven't already had the site googled up and opened in another tab, here you go.

AND MAN THEY ARE GOOOD!
So I am secretly recording whatever they are practising. Post it here later? ;)
Anyway, this is what I wore to uni yesterday. After browsing some street style blogs recently, I am bringing my short tulips skirt back into my wardrobe horizon. I am utterly happy to finally wear these Topshop socks as they should be worn, not hidden under some trousers.
what I wore: Dotti shoulder detailed top, Glassons tulip skirt, Topshop anglophile socks, Jeffrey Campbell patent brogues.

Out of a few fashion shows in New Zealand Fashion Week this year, I would have to say Twenty Seven Name's is definitely my favourite. Inspired by school uniforms, the line were filled with crisp white dresses and shirts, flat shoes, white socks, plaits, buttons and collars. I am pretty sure I am not the only one who loves and secretly miss my school uniforms back in those days.
I wish I can write more but I should really be listening to my lecture now. So keep an eye on this old blog, I'll post some pictures later. ;)

There are some important things that we do:
1. Encourage each other in our walk with God through our past university year.
2. Cast visions on the scarce time we have left.
3. Challenge to commit and invest our time as a committed student leader.
Then there are some not-so-important things that we do, like:
2. Get all dolled-up.
3. Eat yummy desert and drink awesome coffee.
4. Day dream...
6. Have a manly pile-on.
7. Take some proper and decent-looking group photos.
8. Have a random shot photobooth with your bestie.
9. Ask really random gross-out questions.
10. And, smell each other.
and sometimes...not everyone smells that good. >:(
Personally speaking, I love it! I had such a great time, feeling all encouraged and ready to go. ;)
And since this is a style/life/journal blog. I hope you guys are curious about what I wore:
what I wore: mom's 90's velvet dress, Coach handbag, Clarks Mary Janes, vintage 70's crochet cape from Andrea's vintage sales.

Photo for some squeals!
And now I have THREE dresses to choose from for the ball coming up in October.

Cool right? A simple outfit made out of mostly things that you probably already have in your closet, the loose sweater, basic gray tank, gladiators from 5 seasons ago....you get the point.
So I thought maybe I can find another outfit that is worth shadowing. :) Here's what I came up with:
Basic black jeans that you should already have for years, washed denim jacket and silk scarf from that charity store, striped tee that was in style 2 seasons ago, little printed tote/book bag from your high school years and a pair of tough looking studded boots.
But if you don't already have these items, you can get them at Topshop.com(denim jacket). The tote is A.P.C bead bag and the rest can easily be found in any retail or even outlet stores near you. ;)
Leave me a comment and let me know what do you think. *wink*

Oh yes I did not get quashed by the 7.1 quake that happened a couple of weeks ago. The only reason I disappeared from the bloggosphere is just because I disappeared. I have had moments like these before, where my bloggi-land became a dry parched piece of desert. Not because I stop wearing or buying pretty clothes, just because I don't take pictures and write about them. And soon enough that creepy urge to want to show it to the world would catch up with me and I would resume constantly posting again.
So Christchurch city had been hit by a big quake in the early Spring, actully, on the first day of Spring itself. Hmm...aren't we trapped in the cold for so long that we need a big shake to celebrate the return of the sun?
And for me, big quake to celebrate my pair of Jeffrey Campbell patent brogues. Ever since I started reading blogs I marvelled at the shiny, pretty, stylist kicks that other bloggers wear. Trapped way down south than the down and under, I never thought I could get my funky polished nails around a pair of shoes I internet-lust over. Oh my I sound so sick. Ew.
But I did. And it was on a S-A-L-E. Like my collector* daddy would say: "Sa-layyy". Dad's undeniably a shopaholic, he gets so excited over sales and even made up his own pronunciation for it! Shopaholic, no? Except he calls himself a collector. Yea, right. I am a collector too. >:D
Anyhow, enjoy the photos. (I might be a bit rusty from not taking outfit shots for a long long time.)

Well, what I did was to search up the street style shots from winter in the northern hemisphere for inspiration. Here's a little something I came up with:-
One. When in doubt, wear the fool proof classic big black coat.
Two. Crazy tights in winter = refreshing!
Three. Yes we know but we forget sometimes, to layer-up!
Four. In case you skipped washing your hair in the cold weather, wear a hat. ;) Nobody needs to know it is just a fashionable cover-up.
Five. This will last you till Spring, maybe even early summer, considering how crappy New Zealand's weather had been. - The nude trench had been in trend since last spring and still going strong!

After spilling my first semester off wandering in blogs and online stores, my inner suppressed geek is eating me up with guilt. So I stocked up my uni locker with food and I am ready to sit in the library, drink energy drinks, chewing almonds and swallow my law textbooks and casebooks, and hopefully wrap my mind around some crucial economics theory.
But before I kill all the remaining readership (after neglecting the good old blog so much recently), I did promised a few girl friends to organise yet another vintage hunt around the beautiful city of Christchurch! So that is definitely something to look out for. ;)
Oh and I bought these Neff x Skull Candy earmuffs-headphone. They keep me warm and mitigates the winter damages when they are not clamping my head too hard.

Not that I have that luxury of time that I speak of. Seeing how I have neglected this blog and left it neglected for quite some time. Rest assured that I still wear cool clothes, match them, wash them, remix them. But without the time to actually record my what-I-wores, I can only do this, for now.
Magazine cut outs! I think this is actually one of the best runway to real way ensemble that I have seen recently so sharing = caring.
Take care my darling readers, I will be back soon. I hope. :(
