Twenty Seven Names @ NZFW

Twenty Seven Names from Eva Leong on Vimeo.

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. ;)

Seven at Seven

Sometime this time every year, Student Life Canterbury would have a night out for a few students that had shown immense growth in their spiritual walk. They are the fat and simple ones. Like me. Faithful, Available and Teachable; plus Spirit filled life, initiative evangelism, methods and material, purity in relationships, leadership potential and enthusiasm = Committed Student Leaders!

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:

1. Rejoice!


2. Get all dolled-up.


3. Eat yummy desert and drink awesome coffee.



4. Day dream...


5. Double takes and check out each other's outfit.


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.

Bargain Hunter

So it's New Zealand Fashion Week this week and I could't go this year, which sucks. But I am not going to sit around and sulk. I am celebrating fashion week in my own little shopaholic manner. After buying a pair of designer boyfried jeans from Nobody last weekend (which I can't wait to show you guys, half price!), I did not splurge (because it was less than $60) on a sequined tunic/dress from Stitch Ministry. Last one in store! But you can still get a size 10 or size 12 if you go here: Fashion Artiste.

Photo for some squeals!


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

Shadowing Sunday: Diane Kruger

No, I am not much of a big fan of Diane Kruger. It's just because I am trying to make myself blog more consistently that I randomly came up with Shadowing Sunday, so there will at least be something up each week. And I was just looking at the whole boyfriend jeans trend because I had been in pain yearning for a decent pair of slouchy BFjeans from a decent brand - not like some random yuck ones. Then I found this on polyvore:

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*

Earthquake = 0; Eva = 1


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.)


Even the box makes my heart skip a beat. JEFFREY CAMPBELL!!!


Tadaa! - worn with leopard print tights for a little roar!


Mango new girl in town tee, thrifted rolled up denim shorts, leopard print tights.


It Is What It Is dress, Dotti gray long cardigan, Polka dots tights, Mango bucket bag.
