True Blue

My cousin is getting married in the end of May, she requested me to look for a blue party dress. Blue is one of my favourite colour this past two seasons, but it's difficult to get a blue party dress, for me party is normally just black, off-white or nude colour... but it's such an out-of-the-box experience for me...

I went for a search, I can't say that I found one, because this is so far from what I wanted.. my criteria is simple, edgy, comfie and not just another long party dress...

Something like the above would be nice..well, maybe not for the evening dinner, rather for the church service..but you got what I mean..

then I found this in Dorothy Perkins the other day... material-wise, it's not considered as a dress for a night out party, rather it's a cocktail dress for a day.
The material is soft cotton, so definitely not the usual party dress, but na ja... this is my back up plan, if I can't find a better one, at least I have this.

So my plan is, since my dress is very informal, I will spark it up a bit, by pastel yellow bracelet and strappy yellow sandals... but where to find those guys?
I bought an over-sized blue clutch from a local brand to go a long with this dress, but I am yet to find the jewelry and the shoes. Once I found those, I am going to do a yellow mani/pedi and I am good to go for a Spring wedding. Voila!!

So obviously, yellow is the IT colour for this season, along with Tangerine orange... so I browse Torry Burch's website to find the perfect shoes...well this is not what I imagine, but again..not bad..

Jewelry wise...these guys will probably be nice... yet still far from what I was drooling for..
Well.. but you know me and my big chunky jewelries...

ok see ya darl

Etsy Fatsy...

I guys by now all of us, fashionistas are pretty familiar with Etsy... yea, this site is facilitating home-designers/ jewelers, vintage hunters/ sellers... I like browsing around Etsy... their prices can be super duper expensive, ridiculous!

But, some are very affordable. Ok..these are my wish list from Etsy :)

Wedding Pin Board

No, I am not getting married just yet, but someday if I do... these are pinned on my inspiration board...

When I was young, I was dreaming of a grand wedding, but as I am getting older, it's a bit different now... grand wedding doesn't mean anything, the life after the wedding does! 

You can call me shallow, but I am still the girl who loves fine things...

 This is so fine, yet a bit too bright for my taste.. 

While this one is a bit too dark... but it's such a romantic table setting, isn't it? 

For once, I think pink is kinda nice too... 

 I kinda like this too but I would probably change the flowers..

 I saved the best for last, I really really like this one, everything is just perfect!

 I also like the gown, but not too sure if I can pull it off.

 Such a nice centre piece...

 This one is so me..

If I really have to choose, I think this Vera Wang dress won me over!

FAQ - Beauty Addict

1. On average, for application of your typical day-to-day work/college makeup, how long do you spend?

I do my make up, my hair and dress up all at the same time every time I go out. I am a bit all over the place, you know?! Usually, to get the result I want it will take me one and half hours, but one hour is enough for me to get ready. 

2. On average, for application of your going out/special makeup, how long do you spend?

It's the same as the answer for Q1, it takes me around 1 to 1.5 hours to get ready. No matter what!

3. If you were to be stranded on a desert island, which 4 products would you want with you?

Before I start answering, I just want to let you know that this question has been asked to my friends to test how well they do know me. Most of them said I would bring a suit case full of make up, shoes, and clothes. When I read it, it really sounds shallow actually xD and I guess it's not true, when I know I will get stranded somewhere, maybe I will bring lot and lotsa canned food (with the can opener of course) and bottle water. 

But in the case of make up, I will bring with me (I won't bring make up as noone  will see me with it anyway!):
  • my holy grail product, Biotherm moisturizer
  • La roche posay skin toner for sensitive skin
  • Tanning oil with sun protector (SPF 25)
  • leave in conditioner for my hair

4.What beauty 'must haves' do you always carry in your handbag?

I am obsessed with lips, I never touch up my make up, but I always get very annoyed when I forgot to bring my lips products like lip balm, lip gloss anything. When the product I put in the morning came off, I really feel the urge to put on (I try as much not to let my lips get dried).

5. Which drugstore brand would be your favourite?

I don't have any particular feeling to any of the drug store brand, but most of the time I will end up with Maybelline or Bourjois. Now, I got sucked into buying more and more GOSH, this girl really sell it to me.

6. High Street or High End makeup?

If I have the money, there is no doubt that I will go for the high end brands. But for now, I try to minimize my make up expense; as a consequence, I buy 'important' products such as foundation, concealer, primers from the high end brands and 'not-so important' products like eye shadow, mascara,etc.  from high street brands.

Sometimes, high street brands are not that bad either. You just need to experiment a bit. 

7. On average, how long does it take you to get dressed/select your outfit?

I always do my make up, hair and choosing my clothes all at the same time, so I cannot tell. It also depends whether I have already planned an outfit the night before or not; it really saves time but I am always too lazy to do that in a regular basis.

8. On average, how long does it take you to get ready for a special occasion/night out?

1 to 1.5 hours.

9. If you could only choose one item of clothing from your wardrobe, ie jeans which would be your favourite?

Without taking the shitty weather here into account, I think I will go with a nice summery dress. 

10. What outfit gives you instant feel-good factor?

A cute dress, black opaque tights, shoe-boots (or any killing shoes that match with the rest), with edgy accessories will do!

11. Which shops do you favour?

I love River Island, I also love Urban Outfitter but unfortunately they don't have any branch here and they aren't willing to ship to the Netherlands either. I don't deny that I buy a lot from Zara and Mango, but it's mainly because those are easily accessible and affordable.

12. High Street or High End clothes?

Again, if someday I don't need to worry about money, I will surely go for the high end, even though I am also 100% sure that I can't keep myself away completely from those high-street brands because I just love the idea of spending money on clothes, shoes, belts, etc.
Looking at the runway shows and the products they have to offer, I think I am gonna go with Lanvin, Burberry Prosum, LV and channel as my fave high end designer brands.
