For the Love of Lace: Self Portrait Wishlist 2016

Elegance is about what you wear and they way you act, move and talk. I've been told that I give off a polite, elegant vibe when I'm around strangers, so whenever I pick my dresses I try not to be too revealing or stray too much off the "vibe" I give off.

I recently discovered a brand called Self Portrait whilst browsing dresses on ASOS, and they have the loveliest, most elegant, interesting and unique dresses I've seen in a while. Seriously, they're gorgeous! The patterns and colors are unlike anything I've seen before. I thought I'd share some of my favourite Self Portrait dresses with you for 2016 since they seem to be trending at the moment.

Floral Panel Midi Dress - eye-catching and elegant blue lace dress, one of my favourites

My favourite 5 items from their collection must be the above dresses. However, it was really the Floral Panel Midi Dress that first caught my eye, as I saw replicates of it being sold online. It's a very famous design, and their dresses are frequently worn for celebrity or red-carpet events. The panel dress is so beautiful and unique- I've never seen anything like it. Each of their dresses look so unique and is sure to stand out from the crowd.

Don't you think that their collection look unique, elegant and edgy at the same time? It's feminine, yet not quite the usual type of dresses that you usually find. I think the dresses give off a very "cool" and "out of this world" vibe, but manages to be elegant and high-class at the same time. They also sell a variety of other types of dresses, including wedding dresses and formal maxi dresses. I'm so in love with their range.

A little about the designer: Self Portrait is a brand designed by Han Chong, a Malaysian designer and a graduate of Central Saint Martins in London. The brand was started in 2013 and has grown to be a rapid success, with the range being featured on Net A Porter and Bergdorf Goodman, attracting many buyers worldwide. They're worn by lots of celebrities including Reese Witherspoon, Rachel McAdams, Beyonce and Kristen Stewart.

I am going to have to try buying or wearing one of these gorgeous dresses someday, but maybe for a special occasion or when I graduate. I love the floral and mixed patterns of their design- they manage to not look too old-schooled and is the perfect balance between vintage, elegance and edgy.

You can buy Self Portrait dresses on a variety of sites but my favourite is ASOS.com as they ship worldwide. They're not too costly, considering that they're an A-list label. Definitely affordable, as they say!

Check them out and let me know what you think!

When Will I Find My Seoul Mate?

I want to share my recent Korea trip with you all :) I went to Seoul for six days with my family and younger cousins, and we had a blast. The only bad thing was that we took a midnight flight from Hong Kong, which meant no sleep and a tired next day. Apart from that, the entire trip was a shopping/ eating galore. Seriously- you'll NEVER go hungry in Seoul.

I also bought around 5-6 pieces of clothing and a few earrings. I'm so in love with Korean fashion- it's elegant, chic with a very young, modern vibe. It's almost like I'm walking around and everyone jumped out of a fashion magazine or something. The girls are all super fashionable and put together. The guys are all K-pop idol-like (just kidding)!

I'm going to leave you with a photo collage of my lovely trip to Seoul…

Artsy Scarves - featuring Rosberg Store

Hey lovelies! Autumn is upon us and it only means one thing- it's time to change your wardrobe essentials and add more accessories and jackets. In particular, I want to showcase something I found online that inspired me in terms of fashion. As an artistic girl, I've always been fascinated by scarves because they go well with leather jackets and winter coats in general.

I am so excited to share with you a lovely site called Rosberg- which sells a great range of artistic scarves with art-inspired print on each item. Rosenberg is a private producer of pure silk scarves, and they deliver to museums all around the world. What struck me most about their scarves is the design- they print Monet, Van Gough and Degas, amongst others from the art nouveau movement, onto their scarves. This means that each scarf looks like a painting- a colorful array of brush strokes and patterns with a dash of class.

I'm not going to lie- I am a huge fan of art ever since I was a child. I love drawing and painting. What excites me most about these Rosberg scarves is that they make "wearing" an art piece possible! Some of my favourites from their collection include their "Starry Night" scarf and their Monet "Japanese Bridge" scarf. They would go perfectly with a black leather jacket, or a light beige trench coat.

These are just some of what their shop has on offer. I think scarves are an essential for autumn, because they're versatile and flexible for the cool weather. I always carry a scarf in my handbag if I go out, because it's easy to get cold in the air-conditioning or in the autumn breeze.

All their scarves are made in Austria, as Rosberg is an Austrian shop. However, they do ship worldwide. I haven't had the opportunity to order from them yet, but their store sure did pique my interest. They are priced along the mid-to-high range of things, since they're made with high-quality pure silk. Their shop offers free shipping to many countries worldwide.

I think these artistic scarves would go well with a black leather jacket, or something dark. It would make any outfit pop out. I like how I can wear my favourite art piece everywhere I go. It's vintage, elegant and warm at the same time. I'm gushing about leather and scarves, because I'm in LOVE with leather jackets too!

Art has always been one of my passions. Painting, water-colour, etching, graphic design- you name it, I've tried it. I still do art in my spare time, though not as much now that university is in the way. I do draw when I'm stressed though, as it helps a lot with stress-relief. In fact, I recently worked on a portrait of a bear for a special someone so stay tuned, maybe I'll post it in my next post!

Tell me what you think of these artsy scarves! Would you wear them with your outfits?

Embarrassing Cosplay Stories Explosion

Hey guys, still remember me? In last post, I have introduced several cosplay ideas for cosplay amateurs and it also aroused cosers’ interest and many of them have shared their cool cosplay looks with us.

Such as this:

This:


And this:


Even like this: 



I am quite impressed with their creative ideas, especially for the carrot cosplay.
Some strange cosplay ideas are offered by amateurs yet some are by merchants.

See sample below:   

P.S: Are you sure the yellow part isn’t for hedgehog’s thorns but Son Goku’s hair?

Again this strange one, hahaha, just wondering what the hell is the lumpy stuff?


Oh my, and this:  

P.S. Can anybody let me know why The Flash wears a crop top instead? 
Compared to the ones mentioned above, this one is more embarrassing: the guy on the right side is so humorous to dress up as Iron Man.



Oh, as long as I see one dishonest merchant, I’ll definitely kick his ass! 

If the problems above are not for a big deal, Cases in this video should piss somebody off. It must be that the “Assassin's Creed”is going to open in theaters worldwide on December 2016, that every merchant demands a slice of cake in the great market. As a customer, please stay away from dishonest merchants to protect your interests!

For cosplay amateurs, cosplay outfits are necessary, especially for complicated characters like those in Assassin's Creed. Then, here comes the tips: Have you found the answer about where the coser in the video bought the outfit? Readers who are interested in this topic, just check it out in the video with your smart eyes. 

Just a kind reminder again, please protect your own interests while you are happy with cosplaying since you’ll not know when and how your real pics may become the money tool of those tricky merchants.

Anyway, Happy Halloween and Welcome to Share with us your cosplay experiences with readers!
