Petals fall and seasons change

Outfit: Sleeveless check shirt, Topshop, blush red skater skirt, Oakham Market, fire-truck red satchel, Taobao, nude pumps, Martina Pink, leather and chain bracelet, thrifted.



Sometimes it is easier to coordinate your outfit if you just wear everything in the same colour (okay, not really everything else I'll end up looking like a red packet). And this is my take on red, the colour associated with everything romantic and love-ly... And no, this was not for Chinese New Year though on hindsight it was more appropriate than my black dress.

This Disney Couture-inspired bracelet along with the Eiffel Tower, Tiger and J charms is one of my favourite accessories while the skater skirt really makes me feel like dancing, which I can't. And thank goodness I had paired the outfit with this satchel before I lost one of the straps somewhere so it looks really weird now. That is one of the perils of online shopping where the quality of the goods really depends on the seller. Anyway, which is your favourite red item here? :)

Also, regarding the question in my Formspring: I use 65Daigou as my agent for my Taobao shopping. As Taobao sellers only accept this certain credit card thing (like Paypal), you need an agent to help you with that and they charge a nominal fee for ordering, packing and shipping the items all the way to Singapore! I know of other agents but to me 65Daigou is the cheapest and they do meetups at many convenient locations.

Besides scouring Taobao for iPhone cases, coats, shoes and apparel (I must be crazy and broke soon), I have also been eating a lot with my friends and beloved boyfriend recently. So that must only mean more food photos coming your way, yay! (And my weight gain too, sigh)

Lastly, I will reply all comments soon, but feel free to Formspring me for any urgent queries! :)
