I am such a sucker for...

I am such a sucker for pet animals like dogs. I just thought this Moncler ad. campaign for Fall-Winter 2009-2010 (by Bruce Webber) was adorable!

However, I still think garment on a dog is not natural...and a little wrong unless the cold weather is super unbearable! I keep wondering...why do pet owners living in Singapore bother dressing their dog up? Don't they suffer enough from the heat?

On Wednesday, the 8th of July, I went to the Woods and Woods fashion show. While waiting 2 1/2 hours for the show to begin (I know, really long especially when there's only one show!), I got spotted by the photographer from the blog 'One Sixty Notepad' (a blog from Singapore that covers details on fashion events around the world)...

Here is one section of the photo of me...try to match it at this link:

Coco Avant Chanel (Trailer with English Subtitles)

Remember in April, I mentioned that in France, they released a movie about Coco Chanel (click here for entry)?

Here is the trailer with the English subtitles...however, I am not entirely sure if it is translated correctly though I guess international audiences can get the gist about the movie. Enjoy!

P.S. I was told (from a friend living in Paris who has seen the movie) that the only scene memorable from the movie was when she starts constructing her first collection.

Fashion Predictions back in the 1930's for the Year 2000

Apparently, in the 1930's this was what people thought we would wear by the year 2000.
Can you spot anything relevant to today's trends? 'Outi' from OutsaPop Trashion spotted it... A little something from Marc Jacobs as stated:

So, basically, what goes around comes around...? Source:

What are they thinking?: Fashionable Cupcakes...

I wonder, what would it be like if fashion labels translated their style into food...however, I doubt they are on sale...


Betsey Johnson

Christian Louboutin

Louis Vuitton, would you rather buy their stuff or just have the cupcakes?

Now I'm craving for cupcakes (no worries, just kidding!)

My Current Works from the exhibition, 'Resuscitation'

Here are my works from the exhibition called 'Resuscitation' curated by Johnathan Seow (designer of Woods and Woods). Five other designers also submitted their works for this project. More in the future...

Apparently, for this exhibition, it was decided that elephant heads best represented my works...

One 'Bold' Inspiration

Let me say something. It's never easy to buy clothes when I am back home. In fact, I shall admit, I am more than over weight. Seriously, it has taken me months to reveal this on this blog.

Nevertheless, it doesn't stop me from dressing up. This does not mean I am not determined to lose weight. I am on a program to lose weight for health reasons as well. However, meantime, I love to get creative with my clothes and stay confident like the indie rock vocalist from 'The Gossip', Beth Ditto.

Beth Ditto (born
Mary Beth Patterson) from Searcy, Arkansas, USA has become one of the people I get inspired the most. She's got a cracking voice, really good! She is daring and with loads of confidence without caring how others sees her even though there are criticism on her size and how it will affect the public (I remember once, when I snoozing in bed with the issue of 'Love' magazine, I heard someone I knew was gasping, more like in shock when looking at the magazine cover. Sort of frightened the person...).

Cover of 'Love' magazine (UK) which caused a 'gasp'!

Sure, designers (Gareth Pugh, Hussein Chalayan and Alexander McQueen (just to name a few designers...) does make things to fit her size (for photo shoots) but it shouldn't stop us from looking great. In fact, revealed some tips for styling yourself on a budget, no skills required. Just your imagination and resources. Her tip:

On July the 9th, Evans (the UK high street brand) will launch a collection done by the lady herself (more on this extended page: Also, she was once approached by 'Topshop' to do a collection for them. However, she rejected them as she did not believe in designing for a brand with does not cater for anyone at her size.

Part of the collection that will be sold at Evans stores.

Even though we 'bold' ladies will not be able to get these kind of clothes here in Singapore, we can just look at it for inspiration, customize our garments...or ask friends from the UK to help purchase and send over!
