Get Drowsy

July 31, 2009

I have a confesssion to make. This post has been sitting open in wordpress for like 5 hours before I’m properly writing it now. Gah I’m so easily distracted U_U.
Anyways, the adorable Manatee McMillian opened her new store narwhal yesterday. Whee! Narwhal  is littered with happy cheerful clothing! Seriously, I feel happy and high shopping there. Well maybe the ambience from the beautifully decorated shop helped too. Below are 2 outfits using items from Narwhal’s collection. The 1st oufit is a really colourful and cute tuff tuff skirt. I paired it with a green puffy sleeve blouse from Bolero collection, a recent find thanks to the IM from Amanda Bolero. Her store, its another “why haven I found this store” moment all over again. So arigatou amanda!  Bolero Collection offer a myraid of items ranging from gowns to classy seperates to wild rock chick outfits, so do check it out! I was looking for socks the other day when I found this tights part of an outfit on sale at Kuri Style (the socks branch). It is only 5 or 10L for an entire outfit! As for the second outfit, it is a casual look, styled around the denim skirt which is part of Narwhal’s new releases. Boom recently released some great basic unisex t-shirts. They come in various styles including a sheer version which is shown below. There are lots of magic involved in the usage of this tee including creating your personal teeshirt colour by layering the various shirts. You gotta teepee to the store for more information ^^ The long red shirt is a recent group gift from cupcakes, a group which I have not regretted joining since day 1.I guess i better press publish now. Ta-ta! xoxo

Voices

*Catches baton from Anya Ohmai with lots of flying kisses*

ZOMG my fashion relay post is coincidently my 50th blog post hahaz. Not much to celebrate but well.. XD

This song, Voice on the Radio by Marie Digby, has been stuck in my head for the past few days. This song though simple, it inspired me to dress in a way to convey the emotions from the song, which hopefully I have done so below. Well, fashion and music are a great match XD. Plus, the fabulous twee glasses, from Anya’s post, greatly facilitated me to do a nerdy rock chick look. Rather than writing a super lengthy post about the outfit,  I’ll just let the lyrics speak for itself …

Last night I fell in love with a stranger
Behind the glasshouse he came
Walking out the backdoor
To a crowd of screaming girls, calling his name
I never saw it coming
The way your voice can make me feel
And I fear, that I am falling
I should be old enough to know
Not to fall in love with the voice on the radio

So here I stand
Fighting what I feel for you
Torn between what reason says
And how I really feel
So here I stand
Wondering what to say to you
Hoping that you feel the same
The same as I do

He’s in a rock band
With a voice like an angel
And eyes of a raven sky
Suddenly I find myself
At twelve years old again . . . dreaming of you
But who am I kidding
To even think that you might see me?
It’s in the stars that girls like me
And boys like you were never meant to be

Edit: You have reached the end of the awesome challenge! <3 I guess I’m the last one. O_O

 To Sassy: Thanks for coming up with such a cool concept sassy and for the opportunity to join in last minute! I had so much fun doing my piece :)
