Flashback Two Years ago ...

I'm quite happy today . first, no advertising class ! so i get to go home early. Second, I was being quite productive and got quite a lot of my projects done today. My advertising is done, negotiation role play presentation is finished, and I've got quite an amount done for my textiles final project :D Thirdly, my mom just got back from the States and she got me these AMAZING fringe wedges. I loved it so much ! And now I'm rewarding myself by doing a nice long blog post for you all ! Blogging has been an escape from my tiring life . it's very relaxing to do all the posting and the commenting back :)
So here's my today outfit..

BEWARE !! PHOTO OVERLOAD HERE ! i just got too much got shots today, and I can't really choose which ones to post. So I'll just post most of them . Any of the photos I didn't like very much were condensed into the slideshow thing :) ENJOY !

This is what I REALLY wore to school. I didn't wear the shoes that was worn at the first picture because my mom arrived in Jakarta in the afternoon. So i didn't get to wear them to class :(

there's the close-up of the shoes . I love it that I can wear it different socks for a "brand new" shoes. And from far away, the socks actually look as if it's a part of the shoes .

and now I wanna share my inspirations for this post . This was inspired by one of my favorite collections of all time, Balenciaga's Fall/Winter 2007 . I loved the jodhpurs, blazers, and those amazing SCARVESSS (i got my topshop version right away when I saw it displayed) very much ! im still obssesed with the look actually. So now I decided to go back 2years and "do" the trend :)
Photos courtesy of
Teen Vogue (September 2007) also did a FABULOUS job creating the Balenciaga look in their fashion spread. I loved it even more because it was one of those times that Asian models rarely appeared on magazines spread.
i love those electric blue tights very much !!
the look on the right is my favorite out of the other looks !

and here's another photo of the inVESTment piece :

I love love your scarf so much and those fringe wedges! Awww,so nice of your mom to get it for you.
And matching it with pink socks is gorgeous!

I didn't know your blazer was from f21,it looks great!

My manicure was there like express ones. basic shape and buffing with 2 coats of color and of course quick dry top coat!!
It was sgd$10,not really expensive. heeee

I don't go for those expensive ones because I know I might just get it chipped or something the next day. LOL

Sadly,no AA boutique in Singapore:( So I order online and ship it here. And I love that they have flat rate international shipping! heee

Do come to Singapore sooon <3
