(Please ignore the spastic look on Sarah’s face)
The girls from Fashion Nation had a party cum bloggers/readers meet-up in conjunction with their 2nd Anniversary at Soon Lee on Haji Lane.
We braved the MOODILY TORRENTIAL rain to get there! (and the weather for the past few days has been evil!!! out with the wellies everyone!! now, if only i had a pair 0.0!)
And here are some of the photos!
Jo with Stephie from Fashion Nation
Jo, Kay from The Clothes Project and Sarah
Top: Black Sequinned-front Tank from Zambesi
Bottoms: Brown Bubble Pants with pleating details, a gift from sister
Shoes: Gladiator sandals from Far East Plaza
I think i have a subconscious compulsive need to stick to themes. Like with Wardroblings + Wardrobe, I felt it was important to show my support for local designers, thus the resulting emsemble (which you can see here).
Similarly, all three items, have not seen the light of day prior to the party. In fact, whilst on my way to Soon Lee, I felt as though i had walked through my closet with my eyes closed and just threw on whatever i grabbed.
Sequins + Bubble + Gladiator sandals = TOO MANY statement pieces!! (but somehow, it works out.. at least i tell myself that!)
Q: whats wrong with bubble pants?
Sarah: ‘I’m self-conscious of my bum, so i don’t like to wear anything that would make my bottom look bigger. But then again, it works both ways.. if anyone thinks my bottom is big, I could always blame it on the bubble! hahas’
also at the party was X-wen from Fash-Eccentric, pictured with Jo. (i thought X-wen’s dress was really pretty)
and the Swirl Girls (Evelyn, Priscilla and Suzanne)!!!
behind my facade of calmness, i was SUPER excited to meet them. i ❤ their blog!! and in all my excitedness mixed with intimidation, i didnt know what to say) But i rubbed shoulders with the Swirl Girls! (((:
ok! deep breath!
Evelyn also brought along her family. Here is Jo with Oliver (his outfit had eyes, a pig nose AND squiggly tail! how cute is that?!) [Oliver was looking at his mommy and Priscilla who were trying to coax him into smiling for the photographs] (:
Zhiqiang from Trait, Jo and myself.
We didn’t get to chat much but he gives off a very cool vibe. I LOVED his outfit and admittedly jealous of his prominent cheekbones. (i was secretly staring.. i hope it wasn’t too obvious!)
What Jo wore
Top: Floral print sleeveless top with skirt and zipper from H&M
Cardigan: Purple cable knit cropped cardigan from Giodarno Concepts
Bottoms: Jeans from River Island
Necklace: Malleable necklace from Hong Kong
Shoes: Yellow tie flats from Hong Kong
She says she felt too cute for comfort with the florals and cutesy skirt. In the words of X-Wen from Fash-E, “I thought we were supposed to look spastic” – Jo thought so too! ):
Laila from Rock.The.Trend was there too.
My friend Steph (whose work you can view here), whom i helped with this project, photographed Laila’s next collection. I am eager to see how everything turned out (:
Someone else we talked to was June from Rose.
I got to try on her kooky glasses. ($2 from Daiso!!!) 😀
Looking through the glasses made my eyes water, cos you cant really see..
We were chatting with June while Jo and I were browsing through the Soon Lee store.
These fabric badges were too adorable to resist. (Jo got the elephant and I bought the kangaroo)
Jo felt the need to have a hoity-toity expression to match the hair accessory.
All in all, we had a lot of fun with
and wonderful company!!
A big THANK YOU to Fashion Nation and Soon Lee for organizing and hosting the party!
more of such parties please!!!
