    Taipei; From The Streets; 3 BFFS, 3 Eclectic Individualists

    Thought I'd post up more pictures from Taipei(:

    At first, I was only thinking of snapping a picture of dear Sunday ( on the Left); She was selling me the exact paisley dress that she had on; which reminded me so much of those from Gucci's F/W 08 campaign; but she lent an edgier feel to the entire look!

    As I was paying for my dress (TWD$330, which were about USD$10!), I saw Sunday's friends/ business partners who were coming out from the back room!

    I was gravitating towards Ken's grungy look; ESPECIALLY his bleached splotted jeans; which were tucked into a pair of motorcycle boots and I was in love with Peggy's warm knitted dress which reminded me so much of Christmas! With the cute maple leaves prints(:

    I've seen SO SO MANY of those dresses and I WISH I could buy one home and wear it without sweating like a horse!

    To the majority of you who are from the Northern Hemisphere; just KNOW that I'm so so envious of you!

    Many of you are so in love with the gorgeous Chanel Christmas tree; and since it's Christmas today; I have another one for all of you to fall in love with!


    It's HUGE-R than Chanel's and the array of Tiffany's robin blue gift boxes just blew me away!
    I only wish I could see it during nightfall; It's gna be so so gorgeous!

    Have a Blessed Christmas My Dear Blogettes((:


    Taipei; From The Streets; Mostly Black + A Dreary (SO NOT!) Tree


    Unless you live in a cave; or if you're a hermit who rarely ventures out; a trip down town would TELL you that it's Christmas! I'm not talking about the gorgeous Fairy lights or the decorations BUT the CROWD!

    OMG! To think that we live in the 21st Century where Online Shopping is the norm; I guess, we're all a stickler for traditions; going through the routine of getting; "hand picked" gifts for our loved ones...

    You guys would probably know my LOVE for Chanel; So imagine how I felt when I saw this tree right in front of me when I was shopping at Sogo, in Taipei!


    Maybe we shall have a very Chanel Christmas eh? HAHA
    (A girl can always dream:D)

    That night; while shopping around; I saw this guy; who was decked in black too! Just like my gorgeous Christmas tree; And I couldn't resist; stopping him to snap a picture!

    I love his preppy blazer and ESPECIALLY his jeans! They were more of a gunmetal grey; but it's totally rock & roll; and that striped scarf just completes the outfit!


    This trip to Taipei, I honestly, almost did get whiplash; looking at uber stylish fashionistas on the streets! There are tons of them! And their style varies from person to person! Everyone was so much of an individualist; I wished I've got more courage to step foward or run after them (some of the walk REAL fast!) to get a picture!

    I've got a couple more on my desktop and I'll post them up soon! In the meanwhile, let's drink hot cocoa, listen to Christmas carols and bask in the Christmas spirit!



    3 TIMES of PLAID + Taipei VLOG!

    I love the plaid dress so much; I brought it with me to TAIPEI! APPARENTLY; my little brother had bought a plaid hoodie and I was SO SURPRISED! When I saw him wearing it at the airport! {I was so EXCITED! Cos' I know I could put him on my blog:D}

    The Photoshoot Where I Wore My New (Plaid) Dress:D

    So, I did mention about getting something NEW(!), which broke my bank; in my previous post; And I've actually worn it for a friend's photo shoot((:

    Jeslin had to hand in like; 500 photographs for her assignment and she's kindly asked to borrow me and my closet for the day; AND we had so much fun shooting at Fort Canning; a really quaint, Victorian, place in the heart of Singapore!

    The toilet was our favorite hang out; with us doing a shoot! And numerous outfit changes in it; Thank God it doesn't stink of anything unpleasant! I'll post up my other outfits when I get them!

    So in this scene; I was portraying this mod girl gone wild; As seen with me; having my "deer caught in the headlights" look; LOL

    There's a series to this; but unfortunately; the others have to go through some major "photo shop" to magically remove my dark circles which could not be hidden by concealers:S The BANE!

    People Of Asia Company Dress,
    Fox Grey Striped Socks
    H&M Laced Up Oxfords Booties

    PS/ It was DURING this shoot when I've made up my mind to wear socks like that more often! I'll refuse to buckle, to the deadly stares of any random passers by!


    I'll be going to Taipei early Sunday morning and I will be back on WEDNESDAY! I'll be sure to SNAP tons of pictures; of the food, the streets and YES! The PEOPLE!

    Have an AWESOME weekend!

    From The Streets; Epitome of Casual Chic

    So FINALLY! After a long and arduous week; my COMMON TESTS ARE OVER!!!!!

    Went down to town for some MAJOR retail therapy; And yer; I've left a blistering hole in my pocket with just ONE purchase; But it was TOTALLY worth it!

    Apologies for the blurry image!

    But; the main point or points of today's post is all about Valerie & Nicholas!
    Saw this uber stylish couple outside Cotton On and I can't help but stop them to take a picture!

    Love Valerie's pixie hair cut and her awesome Bohemian fringe bag & her SANDALS!! Also; I was truly WOW-ED by Nicholas's patent Doc Martens! They're just so awesome and I could concur that he's probably from a band or something;

    I mean; who ELSE do you see; wear such AMAZING boots?!
    (You can't see from the picture, but Nicholas's shirt had got some; glittery threads! HOW FAB!)

    They're both the epitome of casual chic;
    Valerie and Nicholas had managed to capture this PERFECTLY!


    From Facebook (A First!); Caramel & Co. + Gorgeous Hair Piece

    So; Here I am; still busy cramming for my papers;

    Anyway; I was on Facebook like; 1 week ago; and one of the best things about Facebook is the many albums you get to see!

    So it was prom season and I was clicking through the many albums with ladies and gents, all dressed to the nines, but I was most amazed when I saw this GORGEOUS girl, in her beeyootiful dress and eclectic hair accessory!

    With a few email correspondence; I got to know that the awesome piece of hair accessory was Sijia's sister's find; from when she was in London and what was more amazing was that she was wearing a dress from her sister's boutique; Caramel & Co. With her sister being one of the 2 designers!

    I was floored when I heard; and the other dresses from her boutique are simply FANTASTIC! For those of you out there who loves your dresses and the classy; girly glam look; be sure to click on the link!

    Thanks Sijia!


    Common Tests! + Mars vs. Venus?!

    I'm having my Common Tests right now and I've got 3 more papers to got! All of them being tourism modules!

    Happened to be browsing the Dailymail while I came across the following...

    "A recent survey found that most women think about shopping with about the same frequency that men think about sex..."

    Good Lord!

    I'll be going to Taipei next Sunday and I'm so psyched ever since I found out! And most importantly... I've been fantasizing about the SHOPPING, like; no tomorrow! Does that mean.....?!

    I'll leave you to think about it!

    I'll be sure to catch up on my comments soon! Wish me LUCK darlings!
