OOTD: Drape and black

 Dress: Made by yours truly :)
Jacket: Dior replica
Pants: Taobao
Bag: Perfume Inn
Boots: Mollini
Accessories: Taobao and Swatch

Today's outfit featured my latest creation, a really simple drape dress.
Got quite a lot a stares today, maybe because of the drapey-ness or because I was wearing a dress over pants, or even because I wore too much black....anyways fashion is self expression isn't it?

Holidays just started for me apart from a few feedback sessions, but yay I get to sleep in more :3

Have you guys had anyone look at what you were wearing?

And good luck to those with vce and university exams *fighting :)

OOTD: Two-faced weather


Top: Korea
Trench coat: Dazzlin
Jeans: Stylenanda
Shoes: Converse

Once again, Melbourne showed it's two-faced (four season's a day) weather, a windy 27 degrees.
So I decided to wear something that would allow my to breathe in the 27 degree heat, whilst keeping warm in the cold morning wind.
Also had an amazing lunch today at a place called 'Green Refectory', always thought it was called 'Illy' since it had a illy sign on the outside..

Due to the large number of customers, I knew their food was either cheap or delicious, or both!
 Here's my massive plate of lasagne which I couldn't finish, and for only $10 it was amazing! (especially the bread lol)

'til next time, bye~

OOTD: Be my 'Muse'

 Top: Emoda - 'Muse de la meson'
Jacket: Dior replica
Jeans: Stylenanda (reviewed in previous post)
Flats: JD collection
Watch: Malaysia

What I wore today in the warm 28 degree weather, mind you it was very windy so no skirts and a light jacket to combat the wind.
Think I quite like this way of doing ootd's, very short and simple.
I'll do my best to keep them up :))

Stylenanda Haul

 Just received my order from Stylenanda today, and thought I'd do a review on the items I got.

As, some of you may know, Stylenanda is like the Korean fashion craze right now, celebrities wear it and everyone is Stylenanda crazy~~

I was looking for jeans and overalls, since the ones in Australia are:
1. Too overpriced  $$$
2. Don't fit me (or they fit in the wrong places) 
3. People will know where you got as specific item from

The parcel came quite fast, ordered on the 21/9/13, got them 30/9/13 (took them a few days to collate the items and ship it out via EMS)
nicely packed

Since Asian sizes and clothes fit me like a glove coz im asian duh I knew to some extent that Stylenanda's fit would be perfect for me, so I ordered these few items:

Denim overalls (link)

Size: good, since it's a baggy fit
Price: $47.12USD cheap compared to the ones here which are $69.95+
Quality: Good


Slim waist jeans (high waisted) (link)

Size: Ah-may-zing, on the stretchy denim/jegging side (size 26)
Price: $39.41 USD on the cheap side for jeans
Quality: Seams are the best, especially the overlocking


Cream eyeliner (pink) (link)

Colour: Superb! love it! Great for when you wanna add a pop of colour to you eyes
Quality: Has a self sharpening end and only rubs off a bit once applied


Colour point watch (blue) (link)

Design: really cool with the elongated strap
Quality: great silicon but I wish the watch face was a bit bigger


Their shipping price is quite cheap considering how much the Australian shipping price is, and hey, you are getting your items shipped via EMS here with tracking :)

I noticed that my overalls and jeans weren't 'Stylenanda' branded but some other brand, but then again who cares when they fit well LOL

If you spend:
- $0-$100 = $20 shipping
- $101- $200 = $10 shipping
- $201+ = free shipping
I spent just over $100 so I only had to pay $10 for shipping (Y)
They also gave me a little 'thank you gift' which was a shimmery dusty pink nail polish :)

Overall, shopping at Stylenanda was a great experience, I want to put another order in now haha!

19 with wild animals

Recently, I turned 19 and only remembered that it was going to be my birthday a week or so before it #ageingproblems
So I didn't have time to plan anything...instead I partied with a few wild party animals.

Mr giraffe, Mrs elephant, Mr tiger, Ms zebra and Mr lion

I made this necklace the night before my birthday as a birthday from myself to myself #foreveralone
Got quite a lot of compliments from this piece, probably because of its uniqueness (probably also another reason why I hardly ever buy necklaces sold here in Australia, because their designs are

Btw, I got my inspiration from the dinosaur necklace by Spinns.
I originally wanted to create a dinosaur one but I couldn't find any suitable dinosaurs, there were either too big, too small or soft and squishy...

Hopefully, next year I'll remember when my own birthday is *sigh* and maybe celebrate with my to-be-found dinosaurrrr fwends :3

Review: Revlon Colourstay Just Kissable Balm Stain (Romantic)

Finally hopped on the balm/lip stain bandwagon *sigh*
Since I naturally have quite red lips I thought that getting a lip stain wouldn't have that much of an effect on my lips, but boy was I wrong.
And thanks to Priceline having a $10 sale on these, I managed to grab a red one (Romantic) in the last few days of the sale.

Love how build-able the colour is since I only put very light coats on! 
It's also very moisturising and smooth without the sticky feeling to it +1

Just simply 'draw' on your lips with this lip crayon and voila your lips are transformed, since its a crayon/pencil type of tip it's very easy to control (I'm not too good with lipsticks and tend to draw outside my lip line...)

Overall, I think this product deserves a 5/5 for the quality, price and what it achieves :))

'Til next time,
P.S. have quite a lot of assignments, but I'll do my best to make posts now and then, and most importantly get my giveaway ready!!!

Cat got your ear?

Current favourite earrings featuring the black cat
Again, I got this from Taobao for a really cheap price - here (but they're out of the black)
Go quite a lot of stares and comments the day I wore these :3
Even though I'm not much of a bracelet, rings and necklace girl, I think I'm definitely an earrings girl with a crazy obsession for strange quirky earrings.


Here's the rest of my outfit for that day (I'm not a crazy cat lady):

Jumper: Twotwo
Pants: Taobao
Scarf: Taobao
Earrings: Rowky

'Til next time, bye~
P.S. currently buying bits and pieces for my giveaway, so stay tuned :)

Misty blue

Well hello holidays!  Already on my holidays when others are having their stressful exams kekeke #plusofbeingadesignstudent

Anyways, I was bored so I made a new necklace ever so casually, and I'm really proud of the end result, so here's what I came up with:

Love the colour of these beads which I spotted at Spotlight, a sort of soft matte misty ice blue. 
They do have some marks on them from transportation I guess, then again, for only $1 a strand what more could I ask for?

To keep this post in the blue theme, here are a few snaps from a city outing with the parents
Really hope Melbourne can preserve these beautiful gothic buildings forever and ever compared to modern buildings that are popping up everywhere and in the city which look revolting (so to who designed them) but they are disgusting, I like buildings where I feel like there's a history there and make me feel at peace, not ones which are wonky and assymetrical, and make me feel dizzy.
Let's take the new RMIT building 80 I think, went in it with my friend and OMG, am I in a maze or a university building? your walls and floors aren't straight but zig-zaggy wtf? 
Anyways, just my view on how I like my buildings :) (sounded like a architecture student here lol)

Here's a modern take instrument/water feature/ art... whatever you call it that I thought was cool at the National Gallery of Victoria.
The plates cling and clang with each other from the movement of water and sound like a chime!
Too blue for you? I am, since Melbourne is now showing its gloomy rainy winter weather D:

Hope the rain stops soon, and I hope you're all doing fine, bye~
