Fashion Items I Cannot Live Without

The premise for the next Carnivale of Couture goes like this: You are stranded at a lifelong party on The Island of Superfantasticness. What are the fashion items you simply cannot live without?

It being an island, I am imagining beach holiday-esque type of items. For day, I would of course need to have a fantastic bikini from Seafolly, a sarong as a cover-up, some blinged-out tortoiseshell sunnies, lippie in a pretty colour and a pair of comfy havianas, all the better to enjoy the beach with.

For night, I'd go for a pair of fabulous but unique earrings from a place like Mudan, a little clutch bag to hold all the essentials, a pretty flirty party frock from either Decjuba or Trelise Cooper and of course, a pair of killer heels.

Fashion don'ts that make you crazy

Away with:
  • bubble skirts - like giant marshmallows that make your legs look stunted
  • cowboy boots - especially unsuitable for Singapore's climates
  • Crocs - comfortable they may be, fashionable they are not
  • formal shorts - a phrase I thought would never be possible
  • daisy dukes - vulgar on anyone, especially with heels. Go put some proper pants on!
Hooray the Carnivale of Couture!

My Little Pony

As seen from DG's blog:

my little pony
You're My Little Pony!! Sweet and innocent and
happy, you make people want to spew burrito
chunks. Even a Care Bear could kick your ass.

What childhood toy from the 80s are you?

And yes, this is my attempt at using online quizzes to make up for the lack of blog posts recently. For some reason, I'm not feeeeeling inspired! I start composing posts, and then delete them in a fit of disgust, as I deem them unworthy of publication. I believe the right word to describe my feeling is "meh".

Boozy weekends

Libations galore, please consume. Photo snitched from T's album.

An excellent way to look back on the boozy two weekends, as stolen from the stylish Agathe:

Christmas Night - PukeFest 2005
With: Mainly group of friends from the old poly days, a nice cosy group
Where: Squashed into P's room, the official venue of all PukeFests
Got: Official PukeFest T-shirt (our 10th year together!), tube of Miso Pretty lip-balm, handmade earrings, Boys are Smelly air freshener, foot scrub, handmade chocolate truffles and handmade purse, and from the group pressie exchange - a Shanghai Tang keychain
Ate (and drank): Pizza from Da Paolo Pizzeria and delicious assorted tapas from Tango, and Japanese cheesecake for dessert, chocolate martini, lychee martini and more drinks I can't remember
Saw: Were-rabbit (aka HatchChua) get drunk
Best: the Miss Mariah 2005/2006 contest, and playing a new drinking game where all conversations should be made in questions
Worst: Sucking at above-mentioned game

With: Same group from Christmas, with a few more additions
Where: Loof bar, above Chef Chans at Odeon Towers and then on to Zouk
Ate: More like drank - peach margarita, flaming lamborghini, lychee martinis
Got: Tube of moisturiser from Shu Uemera, Dogbert's Top Secret Management Handbook (haha!), cute panda make-up compact from Pupa, items two and three items from my Christmas wishlist, and was bought a drink by some boys from the water polo team
Saw: Some hotties (but either gay or taken, bah)
Best: Having friends out at a nice place to par-tay
Worst: Having to end birthday festivities. Everyday should be like a birthday.

New Year
With: Same group from Christmas
Where: Suite at The Oriental
Got: not sloshed at all, despite one peach vodka shot and numerous drinks
Ate: I had dinner before joining them, but we got room service: yummy chicken wings, clam chowder, and fries. And for lunch, my first ever Carls Jnr burger. For drinkies - chocolate martini, vodka ribena, kahlua lime
Saw: Pretty New Year fireworks from the Oriental Hotel driveway
Best: Learning a fun new drinking game - California Kings
Worst: Being shushed by five very polite, hotel staff. Which spoilsport snitched on us?
