Random: Melissa Shoes Mini-Exhibit

I was out on Friday for half a day, roaming around the shops because it was swelteringly hot for a spring day. It was in Chatswood that I found a little exhibit they had on Melissa shoes. I thought I'd like to share some of the snaps of the exhibit. I didn't take pictures of all the shoes and the lighting wasn't that great because it wasn't very bright inside the shopping centre.

I'm not a huge fan of jelly shoes but I do love some of these designs. Particularly Gareth Pugh's Ultragirl (the one with the star pattern... though I hate the peep toe with it) and Vivienne Westwood's Wing and Skyscraper Pearl.

Celeb Style: Clemence Poesy

Just before I start, I want to apologise for the infrequent posts lately since it is already the second half of the semester for me and I've got a mountain of work to do and prepare for my finals soon.

Most of the English speaking world encountered Clemence Poesy through her role as Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter movies (that's how I first heard of her) and if not, probably from Gossip Girl as Eva. In terms of fashion, she has a very relaxed and easygoing style much like all those Parisian women we idolise (generally speaking here). It's mostly classic pieces and I love how she can be feminine even when wearing androgynous clothing.

Here are some outfits that are more feminine:

A dressy blouse: sheer, ruffly, pleated and polka-dot - it's your choice but keep it classy.Short skirtA drop-waist dressBoxy jacketsBlack tights (for the winter)Heels Drop-waist suits her slender figur…

Tutorial: Ice Cream Scoop Ring

Sorry for a very delayed post. Things didn't go according to plan. Now that I've completed my exams (really didn't go that well...) and I'm feeling a bit down, I thought I'd take my time to type up a post.

I wasn't planning to write up a tutorial for this so I don't a picture for every step and had to go back and make another scoop to depict a few steps. Since it has been a while since I've written a tutorial, I thought "Why not?". So for all those sweet-tooths out there, I'm making an ice cream scoop ring. These rings work out for Fairy Kei and Sweet Lolita.
