I Wrote This For You

And I’ve tried to find happiness in a bigger TV, a car and a watch. I’ve tried to find happiness in power over others and the respect of the people around me.

And I appreciate your patience, while you stand here, right in front of me. Waiting for me to come to my senses.

Natalie Portman

… is the January 2011 VOGUE US cover girl. What a great way to start the year right! I can’t wait to get my hands on the copy. She’s photographed by Peter Lindbergh, which makes me even more excited to see the edits. I’m sure they will be mind blowing.

Seriously, can this girl do any wrong? She’s glowing in her J Mendel gown. Le Sighh. And, she has recently been named as Miss Dior Cherie! Good job, John Galliano!

Pretty Dresses from HK!

Was in Hong Kong over the weekend and scoured over (what else?) H&M. Look what I found!

Lanvin for H&M!!!!!

I’d suppose that the dress gets snapped up and sold out within 10 minutes but hey, I saw two dresses! I didn’t get them (do NOT judge!!!) but was crazy enough to think if I should. The dresses were pretty but not very practical. Where am I going to wear it to?

A lot of tulle, doncha’ think? Reminds me of the Sex and the City scene where Carrie was waiting for Mr. Big.

I preferred this dress to the one above, despite being less hyped. But even then, that’s a very big dress and I am not sure if I can carry it off in Singapore.

But,… I did get myself a dress. A very, very pretty one. I am not sure what consumed me to get it but I now that I need an occasion/party to wear it! I am a broke girl now! 😦

The Maxi Trend

For a while, everyone was crazy about maxi dresses. Gone are the days of barely there hemline; enter ladylike, mature maxi everything. Since the trend hits the runway, maxi dresses/skirts/jumpsuits hit every single retail outlet. Everyone covered up.

Looks like the trend is not going away yet and why not? I love maxi anything. I recently bought a maxi skirt and it’s a great investment piece, if I may say so myself. It covers you up, can be dressed up and down (depending on what you pair it with) and hey, no one’s gonna insult you.

So, here’s my top picks!

Just reading the editor’s notes from Net-a-Porter already makes me fall in love with both Couture dresses all over again!

Credit Card!

“A silver crystal-encrusted bodice and cascading train give Marchesa’s white silk-chiffon gown a dramatic feel. Wear this draped one-shoulder design to a red carpet event or as an eye-catching bridal option.”

“An opulent jewel tone and signature corsage give Lanvin’s violet washed-satin asymmetric gown a contemporary spin. Master the art of modern glamour by pairing this floor-length design with an emerald necklace and cutout heels.”

Debit Card!

Feeling the need to splurge on yourself but not maxed out your credit line? Choose these high-street options!


Finally, we have what I’d like to term ” disposable fashion”. It’s just a trend, nothing to get too excited about. So, why don’t we spend some dinner money and forget about it when we get bored of it?

Tom Ford Spring 2011

The pictures from Tom Ford’s September presentation of his Spring 2011  presentation for New York Fashion Week is finally out on the January 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. Shot by Terry Richardson (who was the only licensed photographer for the event, how exclusive!) and attended with the glitterati of the fashion’s world, Tom created a perfect selection for them.

I am quite obsessed with the maxi dress below. The prints are haunting and those gold earrings are the perfect accessory to the opulent, luxe look. Do you like the looks?

Raw and Unguarded

“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado.

There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do.

Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.”
