I attended my first fashion photoshoot today. It's not like I had to do anything - apart from holding up the flash for the camera - but it was actually a lot of fun.

I can't even begin to imagine if the clothes were designer's. I'd probably be drooling all over the camera or something.

Ew. Erase that image.

Pre-loved loves

The cape cost $6 and the dress $12.

The cape can be worn with simple black singlet, skinny jeans and Converse. Or if I wanna be very girly, I'll wear it with heels and a great body-con dress.

As with the dress. I was thinking of wearing it with body-con skirt, belt and flats. Or I can just change the skirt with a pair of leggings. Or I can wear the dress unbuttoned, put on a singlet and skinny jeans underneath and finish off with flats again.

I have so many ideas with the two and I only paid that little. Life can sometimes be too good to be true.

What I bought today

I was determined to find myself a Ksubi pair today. I wasn't even planning to buy anything else other than that, let alone Cheap Monday. But as soon as I tried this baby on, it's like my legs refused to let it go cos it just fits so well - and the price is so right! - so I couldn't pass up the opportunity and bought it on the spot.

That purchase also marked my first time using my new credit card!

Then I went and bought the Burberry London Special Edition for Women eau de parfum. I gave up on the whole priorities thing, you see.

I got a special deal for it, and I also got the bonus gift pack, which is a set of make-up tools packaged in a cute purse. Lucky~♪

Perfume (and shoes) talk

I tried the Burberry London Special Edition for Women eau de parfum today and it's actually quite nice. It doesn't have distinct smell, I admit, but it's not too heavy for parfum, just the way I like it.

And then DKNY's Be Delicious is actually growing on me. Again, I'm surprised that it's parfum; I've always assumed such light fragrance would be eau de toilette. I'll either get that or the Burberry London. Once I have some money.

I still need to buy the perfect black ballet flats, though. Maybe I should get that first and then the perfume.

I should really get my priorities straight sometimes.

Paint it red

What's even better is that these babies only cost me $14.

On another note, now that I've started working again, my summer wishlist will be a piece from Alexander Wang. And lucky me, a boutique that stocks his collection is only a few blocks down my house!

I got it

Got the Elle UK October issue with Alexa on the cover.

Bought it on Monday and I still haven't finished reading it. It's a fucking thick issue, all right.

Posh's new hair

I'm still deciding whether I like it or not. She was spotted at Marc Jacobs' Spring 09 Collection Show.

Miss Selfridge

I remember when I first stepped into a Miss Selfridge shop 12 years ago in The Netherlands. It was bright, loud and since I was only 9 back then, I thought it was too mature.

Fast forward to now, I find myself defending my love for chainstore stuff because I'm very impressed with Miss Selfridge's current collection. It's a mix pallette of quirky-preppy (think nautical details, ruffles and colours) and structured glamour (visible in the fabulous selection of 2-in-1 dresses, modernised work shirts and textured accessories).

One of the dresses (top left) is even named 'Alexa'! I'd like to think that it was named after the Alexa Chung, but then again, the details are cute enough for me to love it.

A magazine to get

Golly, it's been a while since I posted something in here.

My favourite girl Alexa Chung is on the cover of Elle UK's October issue.

I'm getting this issue as soon as I see it in store.
