Outfit: out for dinner

On Firday night a friend of mine took me out for dinner to a very nice restaurant by the lake side. I used this opportunity to dress up a bit and finally wear my satin pumps that I got a while ago. I also wore this wonderful lace top which I got at H&M trend last week. It's gorgeous and extremly versatile. I will post more on my shopping trip from last week and that top later ^o^

Victor & Rolf Dollhouse

Toeing the line between fashion and performance art Victor & Rolf show at the Barbican Art Gallery in London this month, where 55 complete looks (including hair and makeup) from the past 15 seasons will be presented on an army of custom-made life-size porcelain dolls, each of which will have a doll-size counterpart. Every garment is like a couture garment.

“Simone‚” from the Fall-Winter 2003 One Woman Show collection. The Tilda Swinton doll.

“Erin‚” from the Spring-Summer 2003 Flowers collection.

“Princess Mabel van Oranje” and “Madelaine” from the Spring-Summer 2002 White collection.
The gown is smothered in a profusion of bows. Made of snow-white double-faced satin, the dress and its 2.75-meter-long train are adorned with a trellis work and 248 bows made of crepe georgette. The diamond-shaped trelliswork hides all the figure seams, and therefore the dress seems to be made of one piece.

Dinner at Yoshi Japanese Restaurant.

We went to see The Dark Knight on Saturday.
I couldn't wait to go home and try on the dresses I bought from Yeojin Bae's one day sale.
The designer was there on the day, she's so young and beautiful.
The girls work there are very friendly.
There was a young lady hand stitching a flower on a beautiful ivory white dress at the time I was waiting to pay.
It is for the coming smmer collection.
So amazing.

Seriously Banned

I'm on a shopping ban and can't go anywhere close to Myer or David Jones's designer wear section. This is extremely hard as sales are everywhere right now. I broke it by going to Yeojin Bae's one day sale and also bought a few items from chain stores the past few weeks.

This NO MORE SHOPPING is such a pain but it motivated me to treasure hunt my own wardrobe as a lot of things are still brand new with tags on. My shopping excitement doesn't last long. I bought them and forgot about them. Then they hide in the dark forever. Blogging and wardrobe remixing is a great idea as taking photos and uploading them online showcase what I have. I just started to style my outfits after what I did to most of my shoes on Flickr. Now, when I need a pair of shoes to complete an outfit I login and choose one instead of looking for shoe boxes everywhere or climbing up and down to try them on. It's so organised. Easy, fast and convenience.


Chanel shoes in boxes
Not very organise due to not enough space...
need a better storage solution!!!

Talking about shoes, darling always says I’m living in a shoe heaven. I can wear a different pair each day for a whole year round. Few shelves are not enough space for my shoes, as I have a whole room to display and storage them. However, nothing compare to the celebrities. It would be a dream to have Mariah Carey’s shoe closet.
