Gosh I never knew that work can be such a hindrance to my blog... or maybe I don't know how to multitask... or both! It's been over a month since my last blog ---but I guess it's better late than never.

I just came back from a family vacation in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Now I'm back at work---physically---but my brain is somewhere else... still on vacation :P

This getaway is what I needed to rejuvenate my senses... especially my sense of taste and sight. I ate a lot of food that I think I gained an additional 10 pounds... that's not including my gain weight from all the holiday feasts!... and because of that, I bought new clothes at Ben Thanh Market.... by far the cheapest place to buy in HCMC. It's where you can buy clothes for a lot, lot less... my luggage almost didn't close because of all the items I need to take home :D I forgot to take pics of the items I bought but I guess that's an excuse to have another entry on my blog (I hope)....

For now, my items for the day are the accessories I made 2 weeks ago... excuse me for the crappy quality and background of the pics. I was already tired & sleepy after making accessories that I wasn't thinking how it would look like in pics :D

So until my next blog :)

Style Inspirations

Yesterday, I browsed through the pics of the latest Harry Potter movie premiere... Emma Watson looked stunning in a black lace and feather dress! She's such a fashionista :D How I wish that I was that stylish when I was her age :) I also browsed through the pics of Kate Middleton (she's currently in the news because of her engagement to Prince William --- lucky girl :P ). Even if she's not yet married to his prince, her style is already commanding presence and respect. Prince William did choose wisely :)

Speaking of fashionable ladies, I thought to myself who I admire fashion-wise. I came up with a list of my style inspirations and why I admire them:

1. Emma Watson - she didn't went through much of an awkward stage... so blessed!
2. Carey Mulligan - love her *quirky* fashion choices
3. Zooey Deschanel - same reason as Carey Mulligan :)
4. Ginnifer Goodwin - not too quirky like the 2 & 3 but fashionable none the less
5. Michelle Obama - she leans towards the classic side but not at all stiff for a first lady... I admire her love of color and accessories too
6. Rachel Bilson - she's a fashion risk taker but still knows what looks good on her
7. Taylor Tomasi-Hill - has amazing accessories....

I'm pretty sure there are still a lot of fashionable ladies around but these 7 are on top of my mind...

Starting today, I will introduce a featured item or items... items that I'm happy to show you guys, accessories that I made, items that I have plans of selling (in the future... I plan to open an online store *cross fingers*), or any random things that I fancy. Don't get me wrong, I'm not being boastful here... as a thrift shopper, I find items that are *inexpensive* but beautiful (to me anyway :P)...


Featured item/s of the day:

One of my "classic" shoes... I love the thick heels as it can carry my (heavy) weight :D

(bit of a) "quirky" shoes... love the floral print... dainty and girly... but not quite classic

There's always a first time

My first ever blog...  I'm not much of a blogger but it seems that blogging can be fun :) Nothing much to say now but if you are just like me --- fond of thrift shopping, accessories, and traveling --- feel free to leave comments and suggestions.

Just want to post some of the (quirky) accessories I made in the past.
