MORE idea for DIY

obesity and speed shorts w- cut sides 1
 cut sides
This "obesity and speed" with cutout circle side detail shorts are definitely another great item for DIY just like the one jersey top from this post. Another easy DIY that we can do by ourselves!!! Just take one whatever jeans shorts then cut two holes on the side then studded it!!! How easy was that?!?! :)))

W29 Showroom's FW11 preview

I was invited to W29 showroom's FW11 preview today. I was lucky enough to meet some of the designers behind their creative works.
Walter jacquard jacket, denim shirt, shearling vest, Proenza Schouler for Target jacquard full-circle skirt, vintage jewelry, multi-buckles boots from Korea.
Ashish is a line from London. Ashish creates clothing using classic designs, images, and phrases in corporate into sequins. It's humorous, it puts smile on people's faces. :)
The amazing gal behind Candace Ang!!! She is amazingly talented, her stuffs are so dramatic, fashion-forward and eye-catching. She makes jewelry out of spikes, studs, feathers, pearls and stones wrapped in mesh fabric. It's like one of those statement piece that you gatta own!!!
The Local Firm was launched by a design duo that defected from Acne, thus paving the way to create their own brand of Swedish high fashion. The clothes are severe but luxurious inspired by the Bauhaus. The Local Firm consists of men and women's items that intentionally contrast with each other.
The ring on the right is a TDF piece!!!
Italian designer duo Roberta Paolucchi and Paolo Giacomelli behind
Iosselliani. Iosselliani are probably today's best-selling accessories line at Barney's Co-op. Iosselliani never fails to impress!!!
Margarita Saplala designs her own prints, she takes common piece of clothing and drapes, knots, and twists it into something else, something unrecognizable. It's atypically feminine and very different.
Appreciation for quality materials and a strong integrity to design and workmanship, are the main principles behind the Emm Kuo accessories line. Architectural influences, strong textural contrasts and clean shapes render the collection modern yet classic. The Emm Kuo brand aims to create accessories that are a harmonious mix of style, sophistication and versatility.

color blocking

These are some styles that I adore and would love to try. I don't wear bright/ light color that much, definitely never try color blocking before. These looks are inspiring!
I'd like to give myself a challenge to conquer this look. ;p

4. Metropolis wishlist of the week

Monday, March 14, 2011

Cotton candy

Vintage jacquard vest, belt, and necklace; random denim shirt, shorts from the street market in Taiwan, H&M tights, faux fur hat and combat wedge booties from Korea, Chanel 2.55.
I bought this vintage jacquard vest a while back, but I kind of forgot about it until today. I wore it out to have a dinner with my friends in the city. It's still pretty chilly though, I almost freeze to death!
I love how this vest feels like an old sofa/ cushion to me, but the color is so young & refreshing. I paired it with the same color high-waist shorts to spice it up a little. ;p
Hope everyone had a great weekend! :)

Gypsy capelet

DIY SHHHHHH safety pin tunic, H&M ripped jeans, CHLOE' arm warmer, General Idea graffiti cape, leopard print scarf & puffa bag from the street market in Taiwan, military booties from Korea, random headband.
Today I woke up from the text messages that my friends sent to me to ask if my family
is all right in Taiwan because of the tsunami. Through out the night I kept getting all these messages that I had no idea at all, until they told me what's happening. The earthquake in Japan, and the tsunami hits there and is going towards Taiwan..
I am so thankful to have friends like them who thought about my family before I do. ;p I am really bad about these kind of things. Every time when there is something happened in Taiwan, I am always the last person to know in my crowd. They always text me before I even realize anything. Thank god I have them!!! This time the tsunami didn't really hit Taiwan, it just by pass us. But Japan is really bad, so sad and scary!!! My thoughts are with those who have friends and family in Japan..

Grey weather, grey sweater

Grey braided sweater & leather shorts from the street market of Taiwan, random tights, A+1 leg warmers, military boots & knit hats from Korea, Forever21 necklaces.
I've been back for about 2 weeks now. It's felt so weird about no need for going to work anymore!!! I normally get back to New York from the trip, then go back to work right away the next day. But this time..Uh Uh!!!
Self-employed is really great, free, fun, relax and all that. But at the same time it could be stressful and challenging!!! It inquires tons of discipline and self-control. Making my own schedule of what I am going to do, how I am going to do it. What's the plans for each project and collection. It takes a lot to get used to at the moment! I am starting to get into this path, this new life style! So exciting but so scared at the same time!!!
But the advantage of working for myself is definitely that I can hang out with my friends and boy at anytime, anywhere, anyway I want. Besides this, I still have a whole lot to discover from my newly free life style. ;p

Hope you all have a delightful weekend!
