Sing a song that will never fade on a rainy day

Oversized cape:Forever 21
Inner tee:Threadless
Leggings and heels:Topshop
Flower pin:handmade,etsy
Rings:gift/random


Noooo,I didn't cut my hair short.
That would never ever happen as I never look good in short hair. I side braided my hair today and put it across my head and ta-da! You get a new hairdo. I've been seeing this being pulled off by so many fashion bloggers and I always wanted to try it out. But since now my hair is so long now that it can be easily done in 5 minutes. It only took that long to do this up.
You will surely see me more often in this look I guess as I really do love it.

Another two lovely packages arrived today when I got home. Always love when something is all wrapped up and you can't wait to just open it up.
First package is a giveaway I won sometime back from MJ of Dreaming Spires and Old Cart Tyres. I got to pick one of a few DIY creations that she has made and I chose a ribcage tee! Its really so gorgeous and this photo does no justice. But I will surely be wearing this out soon. She was really sweet to add in a bag as a surprise too. Thanks so much MJ.
Second package was a recent swap I did with Maddie of Glad Rags to Riches. She sent me so many lovely tops that are perfect for layering,a dress and beautiful accessories too! I love the beautiful card she made too,thanks girl:)

Come head down to Green BazaaRRR at Mount Sophia tomorrow from 12noon to 8pm~ That's where I'm heading down tomorrow afternoon,do come by and say hi. Its also for a good cause and the thing is that I love flea markets:)

Your hair is SO gorgeous styled like that!

I just wore a cape too today! So comfy!

Ilse said...

ohhh girl your hair looks amazing! this was exactly what I had done to my hair the last time you commented haha - it wasn't a braid!! you should be able to do it as well since you have long hair as well: you take the upper half of your hair and put it up in a knot. you divide the leftover hair in two (left right) you make two braids. the one braid you put up from left to right, and the other on the other way around and done!

by the way, could you please vote for me at a contest I'm in? you can find the link here. I reaaaaaaally wanna win this so I'd be so thankful if you'd vote for me!

last but not least.... your package will be sent out, tomorrow!!! I lost one part of it but I didn't dare to tell you hahahha. but I found it once again... I already wrapped it up and had forgotten about it!! sorry for the delay hahaha. I'll put the mustard dress in it as well. hope you have a fantastic weekend dear!
