Flower gathering and baking your favorite red velvet cake

Top:thrifted,Ralph Lauren
Lavender skirt:vintage,etsy.com
T-strap heels:Clarks
Necklace: bought long time ago
Headpiece:gift from my sister




Vintage clothing is actually my huge love always.
I sometimes feel its better than normal mass produced clothing.
Like brands etc.
But to each person,we all have our different views.

But I can't dress as much like here now.
For Singapore,there aren't much thrift stores or 2nd hand stores.
And to buy from vintage stores here,the prices are rocket high.
So I buy lesser vintage now.

Actually do have really beautiful 1950's cocktail dresses
and also a 60s hippie long Mexican dress.
Will surely wear it out soon to show you all.

And I'm making a promise to myself
To buy more vintage and grow my collection.

About the giveaway,just bear with me:)
I'm teaming up with another blogger for a giveaway!!
Shhhhh,its secret for now.
But it sure something really beautiful!

Have a great weekend everyone ~

Hey, my dear. Since i super love of turquoise color. I love your tee.
I kinda sad hearing that S'pore lack of thrift store. You should visit Indonesia sometime.In some cities we got several THRIFT HEAVENS. Yeayyy! such in Jakarta we got Pasar Baru and Pasar Senen. In Bandung we got GEDEBAGE Market. In my city Surabaya i have my two special spots of thrifting heavens at Tugu Pahlawan Street and Gembong. (those names might seems funny in your ears =p ). They sale US $1 for three items as the cheapest i ever experience. And US $4 for the highest price they offer for a pair of Jbrand or True Religion jeans(if you luck, dear). How WOWWWW is that???

-love you-

shoe and headpiece love!!!
i like your sweet vintage look; you pull that turquoise color off soo well.
I can't believe that it's so hard for you to shop vintage there...that's so sad! It's pretty much all I can afford around here! You need to plan a vacay to the states so you can take home a plane full of vintage clothing on your way home!!

Kristiana V said...

I loooove that skirt, when I saw it, i immediately imagined how i'd wear it to make it more 'Kristiana' :D i'd wear it as a dress and would put a belt on my waist, to give it a shape, and would add some opaque black tights and heels :D
