A Season of Floral Obsession

    I bought this pair of lovely floral heels last year from Forever 21. Now I realize I have never done a single outfit post in it! In a sense, this is a warning post, just so you can watch out for another "romantic and floral" outfit post coming, in case you are already sick of it  :)

    In other news, I received a jaw-droppingly beautiful (and romantic, mind) necklace from Romwe this morning. I think I am already transported to the grandeur of ancient medieval courts just by gazing at it. I am also currently attempting to use Tenso (a Japanese webstore forwarding service) to procure "more" romantic clothes, I guess I do have an addiction issue going on.

A Frock of Roses

I want some red roses for a blue, blue lady,
Send them to the sweetest gal in town.

-- Andy Williams "Red Roses For A Blue Lady"


    I love roses, and white ones more than reds. When I was little, I always imagined a lovely bouquet of cream white roses for my wedding one day. Naturally you will forgive my bubbly overexcitement when I delved into my parcel from Romwe one morning and discovered -- yes, a frock of roses!

    Oh, and please ignore the occasional sullen face and the unruly hair. I was down with an awful bout of cough (which kept me up all night) and today I have lost my voice  :(    I guess too much iced tea would do that to you.

Where The Wild Things Are

Oh, I'm looking for my leopard, where can he be?
Oh, my leopard's probably somewhere looking for me.

-- 7 Seconds of Love "Looking for My Leopard"


    I have been meaning to do an outfit photoshoot with my plush leopard for a while now, and I was originally planning to just sit around with the toy, take a few photos and be done with it.

    The idea of this post came when I was watching the animated version of the macabre ( and dare I say, hilarious? ) "Gashlycrumb Tinies", an abecedarian book that kills off children in the goriest way possible. You can watch it here, it is ingenious!

A Pastel Wishlist

L'Eau de Chloé fragrance 

    I have been ensnared by the celadon hues of L'Eau de Chloé since the very first magazine ad, and the other day I came across The Body Shop's Lily Cole collection online which had me captivated by its ethereal shades. As you can see, I simply cannot escape the spell of the evil pastels, there are so many such items on my wishlist that they deserve their own category I think  ;)

    Here's a little sampling, and you can find the image sources at the end of the post. Ciao, and oh, Happy Father's Day! I hope you all have a nice hearty meal with your family, I know I did!  :)

Nude and Mint

In my field of paper flowers, and candy clouds of lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours, and watch my purple sky fly over me.

-- Evanescence "Paper Flowers"


    I am in a rather distressed mood lately. These photos were taken a few days ago when summer sunshine was still abundant and brimming, but since then it has been downpour after downpour. There goes my outdoor shoots, I guess.

    By the way, this pretty laptop case is a gift from the wonderful people at, an online store for customized laptop and phone cases. You can choose your own design, the interior, and the fit (snug, loose etc.). I had a great time designing my own, and of course it turns out to be something floral and pastel (surprise surprise!)  ; )

Couleurs Douces

    I am undeniably afflicted with a delirious craving for pastels whenever the warmer months make their annual call. My lavender dress is now perched in delicate balance upon the window-sill while I try on a peach-hued rose in the hair.

    Just yesterday, I received yet another pastel confection in the mail -- a lovely customized laptop case from the nice people at I think you can see me in a pastel-y outfit with it! I'll be posting one soon, so be warned ;)  and thank you Darcy, the sleeve is gorgeous and fits perfectly! Vive les couleurs pastels!
