Pin Up Girls Tribute

I have always loved Pin Up girl posters. I think that they are very sassy and inspiring. Therefore, I decided to try a little bit of Pin Up girl look, and here are some of the pictures that I have adjusted with colored effects in order to look more old and pin-up realistic. Enjoy!

This is kind of my new experience of editing with so much layers of vivid lights and overlays, but the process is quite exciting and the result is interesting too!

Special thanks for Cherry, my housemates for photographing these pictures. Visit her blog here:

Comments and suggestions are very welcome =)

SH Fashion Week: La Vie

So one of the fashion week tickets that I have is a backstage ticket. I was one of the dressers for La Vie.

It has been nearly one month since I have been an intern at La Vie, a fashion label originated from Shanghai. Too bad I was not with this label earlier, else I might also be a part of London Fashion Week!

Their collection here was inspired by butterflies and zen flows. Name of the collection: Zen Awakening. By the way these runway pictures came from Shanghai Fashion Week official site. Enjoy!

See this pink dress? I made that embroidery detailing: Yes. Front and Back.

This pinky outfit! One of my favorite piece in that collection!

The finale gown.

Aha! SO this is their finale. See that glow-in-the-dark butterflies? I helped them to attach those things one by one.. So much more awesome and beautiful if you can witness this finale with your own eyes. It was quite tiring.. But really fun experience overall. Below are some backstage pictures I got from a blog of Maris Manalili, she used to teach me when I was studying my degree in Raffles. Visit her blog: here.

See that was me with the chocolate belt, dressing a tall supermodel named Miao Bin. It was soo hectic I did not even realize that I was photographed. And the right one is Jenny Ji, the designer of La Vie. She was observing the order of the models from the backstage, she is really cool, and I won't fail to mention that she is also a great boss!

Shanghai Fashion Week 2012

I cannot explain how excited I was for this year's Shanghai Fashion Week because I got 3 tickets to watch the shows! Heehee... So here are the pictures I selected for the blog. I also feature 2 looks from stylish people that I met before the show.
This is Jeremy, he was one of my lecturers from Singapore. I like his total black look and that hat is a good touch too!

And, here is Baiba Ladiga, also one of my lecturer during my college time. She is a fashion designer, a stylist and also illustrator. Check out her cool blog at She always look fabulous, but that day the highlight of her look is that amazing shoes! How can anyone not love that McQueen shoes?
Her Alexander McQueen shoes... Let's put these in my wishlist!

Dat Sun!

Greetings to all you amazing people out there!

When the sun comes up a blogger must do what needs to be done: taking pictures! Here are some of the pictures on that beautiful sunny day. It was not so cold anymore so I decided to take out my bow-ties jeans and show it off to the neighnorhood. I combined it with my sweatshirt and created this fun casual look.

I never actually believed that a sunny day can affect your mood in a much positive way until a while back. I have had some encounters in which I have to work super early for work. Shanghai is a very gloomy city for most of the time so I barely notice, but that time when the sun actually shines I felt much better than the rainy and shady days.

That Girl with The Cape

That night we went for another trip to Tai Kang road. The chick-vintage-but-oriental pedestrian street is bustling with tourists and locals. It was nice and pleasant trip, here are some pictures from that night. I was trying a simple look that was inspired by that particular cape, again this reminded me of Sherlock Holmes. 

We were dining in a lovely Indian restaurant. So this is me without the cape.

These three pictures were taken in the taxi, wonderful lights effect shown due to the rapid movement of the taxi. I thank Cherry for these lovely pictures.

Look, this is me outside my favorite karaoke place with a very cute pink car, with London flag pattern! That night we sing our heart out.. It was really fun, we sing a lot of songs of Florence and the Machine, Paramore and even Birdy, and of course Hot Chelle Rae!

This is my friend Cherry and me. The picture is blur but I still like it... Check out her blog and discover a cool chick fashion style!
