oh snap!

I predict that this flow chart will be all over the fashion blogs in, like, five seconds, but I still have to share it. A good morning chuckle for me.

And is it sacrilegious to say that I'm getting just a wee tad sick of The Sart?

fashion diary

Nothing very special about my outfit, but my mom did my hair for me, just like she did when I was a little girl. I'm so happy that my hair is long enough to style. It's about time!

Just a normal day at the usual lunchtime kopitiam.
Dress: Topshop, from Flea Fly Flo Fun
Camisole (inside): Mango
Heels & bag: H&M
Necklace: Forever 21

We've been jumping a lot, for some reason.

Please pardon my strange pose and expression, I'd just been prancing around.
Dress: Sister's, from Flea Fly Flo Fun
Belt: J. Crew

looklet at this

Fashion diary photos are stuck in limbo due to some uploading problems, but here's the latest distraction during my work day: Looklet.

Here's what I'd like to be wearing for my upcoming Bangkok weekender for my crazy friend's "hen trip". A girl can dream, right?

As if I'd really wear heels to go shopping. But this is just make-believe, right?

There are gonna be nights of hard partying. The bride-to-be is scared and, frankly, so am I.

Morning-after hangover outfit. But the shopping must go on.

Now to assemble something similar from my wardrobe. Stay tuned for actual outfit photos after my trip!

who doesn't love a swop?

A "public service announcement" on behalf of the Swop event (the beloved distant cousin of Swirl Swap Swop, which is on a hiatus). While the Swirl Girls are not the organisers, we still think this is a grand idea. Not only will you be able to trade for second-hand clothes from others, you can also get brand new clothes from brands such as Topshop and Adidas.

Here's what the good people at Swop say (find out more on the Swop Facebook event):

Give your wardrobe a new life by recycling and swopping your clothes! Join us at SWOP Party @ Tampines 1, you can barter away the fashion items you bought on impulse which others might find more useful.

* Donations from popular fashion brands, including Dorothy Perkins, Topshop, G2000, DIVA, Adidas and Esprit
* Refreshments – free flow of ice-creams!
* Live DJ music
* Boyfriend/Hubby Corner, with comfy chairs and magazines to keep them entertained

Admission: $5 (non-refundable), and at least 5 fashion items in good condition

All proceeds will go to Operation Hope Foundation (www.ohf.org.sg), a Singapore based charity organization that helps orphans and the poor through relief and development projects in third world countries.

A token will be issued for every fashion item donated. The items must be in good condition. Participants can use the tokens to exchange for other fashion items at the SWOP party. Every additional item without token will fetch $5 for the charity. Items that are not taken at the end of the session will be donated to Salvation Army.

Swopping is an ethical and environmentally-conscious way of getting new wardrobe by cutting down waste. Most of all, it is for a good cause as all admission fees and unredeemed items will be donated to the charity. Join us for a fun time of swopping and meeting other people!

Date: Saturday, July 18
Time: 4.30pm to 6.30pm
Venue: Tampines 1, Level 6 Roof Garden (access via escalator next to Amore Living)
