Never hesitate to take a jump for a chance of joy

Tee:Courtesy of Naked Ape
Maxi dress turned skirt:Gift from Shantee
Braided headband:Diva


I'm feeling well again and much better! Thanks so much to everyone for all your concerns. Of course,I'm still very much into the blogging scene and will never give up. It's just that work is really killing me now and I'm trying my best to work something out with the time and to have time for my blog too. On my job,I'm having doubts with it to be honest. I might be changing to another job. That's just a thought for now,wish me luck.

If you've noticed,I've not worn anything purple before here. Even when I'm not blogging,you wouldn't see in in anything purple. It is not a color I could carry off. But I guess I was wrong.
The lovely people at Naked Ape sent me a lovely purple acid wash graphic tee along with their very own tie dye tote bag. Tie Dye and acid wash just goes so well together. They really have gorgeous tie dye dresses too. Thanks so much Naked Ape!

The Naked Ape is a boutique/workshop where a group of people comes together and makes stuff for the love of making stuff and having fun together. The boutique is an ever changing place a space used as both shop and a gallery and some times for concerts and party's.
In the boutique they have all kinds of stuff they like, like their own clothes and some other cool cloths. Nice books on Art, street Art, design and related material. There is also a small corner with some music. They have a section with hand printed Sigurrós stuff created by the tooth fairies.

Well,the new year will be a whole new list of things that I will begin to love. What are some things that you'll be coveting this season?
For me,it will have to be finding my love back for vintage again. I would love to start growing back my collection of dresses,hats and old suitcases as well.
Enjoy your weekend~

you're killing me with the head bands, they look wonderful on you!
Not to mention the tee is a killer. I am a purple lover since I was a kid and I find it a lot in my clothes ;) It's fun color to wear!

Enjoy your gift and good luck with the buying/wearing more vintage :)

Kiss!

You did a brilliant job in transforming the dress into a skirt. I love the colors of your ensemble.

I'm glad you're okay now. xoxo

Oh this is another great hippie look from you, girl! I love the headband and how you turned the maxi dress into a long skirt!! It looks so Morticia Addams:P

So sorry to hear about your job, whether you get a new job or stick with the old one, I hope things get better for you.

It's a bummer to start work tomorrow after so many days of holiday!

Hello! I think purple looks very good on you! It wasn´t a color for me either until a couple of years ago. It is a surprising color because it actually looks very good on people. I hope you find a job that makes you feel more motivated about it.

Ahh! The dress/skirt looks really good on you! I'm always too afraid to wear long skirts because I look even shorter than usual and I'm afraid I'll trip or something. Best of luck with the job!

You make me want a long black skirt! I love how you paired the t-shirt with the skirt- looks so hip! And I love the purple color of that t-shirt. I dig their philosophy! Happy 2010! xo, Mel

the naked ape has tons of cute stuff! how cool that they make things just for the heck of it. sounds like a fun place to work for.

<3!!

michelle_ said...

finally found something different between us . i LOVE purple ! ahha. its a color i could wear everyday..haha.. i think the purple totally suits u..to me purple is like an in between color of red and black.. red is too vibrant, but black is too emo.. soo i like purple then.. the color is not too 'vibrant' that it irritates people, but its quite stunning to make a statement :D

hopping to see u wear purple more often !

Monique said...

You are gorgeous! I love your headbands! really pretty!
