Ribbons, Bows & a Questionnaire



Something I'm looking forward to getting from Borders asap! Here's a description according to :

Your favorite designers take the Proust Questionnaire - a legendary test created by Marcel Proust that is fun, intelligent, concise and reveals much about the test-taker?' personality, only this time, it's got a fashion angle. The book features an introduction by journalist Michael Specter and 23 answered questionnaires from fashion's most applauded designers. Read hand-written responses from icons like Roberto Cavalli, Carolina Herrera, and Michael Kors. The book comes with blank tests so you and your friends can answer important questions like: Are you more Nicole Miller or Oscar de la Renta?

ZOMG. It looks like so much semi-serious fun!


The elusive and prized Luella hairband which I have not been able to find anywhere! TeenVogue linked one of the prettiest hairbands I have ever seen, to the official Luella website, but it's not up yet. Early X'mas present?! =P Ezra told me I didn't have to hint, it was written all over my face as I flipped thru the mag while having Mos Burger with him. While this is unavailable right now, he was soooo sweet and bought me a light apple green bow hairband from woodwood! (view below)


Anyways I woke up this morning after 4 hours of sleep, feeling rather inspired. I had been looking at the plaid fabric laying in the corner right before I slept, thinking what was I going to do with it. Initially, I was just playing around with it making the usual elastic band skirt, but I got bored cause I finished it in like 45 minutes. Then I decided to add some wooden buttons I had leftover from another project and used abit of the remaining fabric make a bow for it (just to add to the girly-ness I love to have in everything in my wardrobe =P) Just to let you know, the bow is detachable so that I could put a belt on. =)

But then I thought... wearing just another pretty skirt was getting abit boring... so I tried it as a top and I think I love it even more! Who knew!?! I really like this plaid fabric! Gonna get me more to make something else! =D


Cardigan: Luella
Top: Fcuk
Shorts: Chloe
Shoes: Trois+Inch
Hairband + bag: woodwood (ty my love!)
Belt: Urban Outfitters UK
Skirt/Top: Homemade

If you've noticed, I've been maybe looking abit dead. I haven't been putting on makeup for 3 reasons, one being my eyes are constantly red (due to me rubbing them for they are f-ing itchy... i blame humid weather!), I've been sneezing randomly so I don't feel like a million bucks and I'm actually taking this chance for my skin to take a break... which is a must for EVERYONE!

Once again, thanks all for the super comments. Another thing I wanna tell everyone is: Don't be afraid to wear colour this Fall and Winter!

and those luella headbands are so cute! i saw them in teenvogue and tried to make one, (by pasting a prize ribbon onto a headband) but it looked ridiculous. best leave it to the professionals.
p.s thats an amazing top/skirt! you've got skills;)
