Featured: Tongue in Chic

Thank youuuuuuuuuu..it's funny that both the feature in Capricho and Tongue in Chic is published in the same day...:)

Click here to see it!

Hi & Goodbye

Ramones t-shirt worn inside out, tailor-made skirt, Topshop socks, Vincci+ shoes, mom's Dior bag,

Went out the whole day.
Too tired to write.

Night, all! :)

Personality Test: Which One Are You?

Lets say, you accompany your friend to get herself some new clothes. She picks up a red dress, something, really really odd and off. And she asks you, "hey, does this look nice on me?". What would you reply?

a) "Hhhmm...I don't really like it. I just think red doesn't suit you. But then again, that's just my opinion."

b) "TRASH! That's such a SHITTY dress! GTH!!"

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If you answered (a), then you must be an educated and well-mannered person who knows how to speak up your thoughts but at the same time still respect and acknowledge that everybody has their own different taste.

If you answered (b), then you must be one of those who like to visit other people's blog and leave comments by appearing anonymous or with random false names and links so that nobody knows how pathetic you are in real life.

Have a nice Saturday, everyone!! Shimmer and shine! :)

xoxo,
Diana

Translation:

How would you describe your style?
I'm pretty much a playful person, so that is also reflected in my style. I like to experiment on a wee bit of this and that, so I have no particular red line on the way I dress except the high frequency of me sporting TIGHTS.

What/Who inspires your wardrobe and why?
People on the road, fashion bloggers, music videos, my boyfriend. Randomness is my biggest inspiration though.

What clothing item/accessory are you regularly wearing now?
Tights, mini skirts, blazers, killer heels.

What clothing item would you say is timeless?
A black blazer. Timeless and versatile.

What do you believe is the secret to become a stylish girl?
Be confident and be true to yourself. Never wear something just because everyone is. Learn your body type and figure out which type of clothes work. From there, just have fun! :D

Cage skirt alert!

Finally!! If any of you guys remember, I actually planned to make this skirt in September 2008. But then I got busy, got busier, got even busier, yada yada. A plan for a D-I-Y thus was never possible.

And so finally, I decided to put aside my ego of having to make this on my own, and got it tailor-made instead heheheh. And oh, the initial plan was to make it in pink, but black felt more versatile.

Topman shirt, Nefertiti hairband, unbranded gladiator sandals

Everything unbranded

Zara t-shirt, Jeleprutt skirt, Diva necklace, Nine West sandals

Mom's satin shirt, Endorse dress, By Binnie lace leggings, Belle shoes, vintage glasses

PS: I had a great day today! How was yours? :)

Gonna Watch "Burn After Reading"

And again, the wheel of life spins and I'm in that stage of boredom again. I've been trying to redefine my reason of being asking myself, "what am I actually doing?". Watched Slumdog Millionaire, cried. Watched a video on Nick Juvicic, cried.

As much as I love clothes, and as much as they are able to boost your energy and uplift your mood at times, clothes only wrap the outer me, you, all of us. The inner soul is fed by understanding ourselves to the fullest, being grateful for it, so that we feel complete. And we serve other people, we should. Make other people happy. Help people around. Greet strangers. Talk to waiters and ask, "how's your day?". Really, focusing ourselves on just OUR life would never benefit you, in any way.

Did I just scare you?

Oh please smile. I'm bringing you some pink :)

Mom's top, unbranded jacket, Topshop socks, Bimba & Lola boots

UPDATED: Watching "Burn After Reading" has really ruined my mood. Totally a wrong choice for boring days.

On The Fashion World

A lot of people have been asking me the same questions over and over again, so I might as well do an individual post to clarify things once again.

  • I’m Diana, currently 24, and I work as a market researcher and consultant. And no, I don’t wear quirky outfits to work otherwise my clients would run away...;p
  • I’m still that Diana, still 24, but I also work as a freelance graphic designer and (recently) as a fashion stylist. I take such jobs only when they are possible to be done after office-hours or on weekends.
  • To the extent that I find fashion and art irresistible, I also love ‘marketing’ very much. It’s funny that I am NOT a subscriber of any fashion (and or art-related) magazines. Trust me, I do not own even one copy of Vogue, Teen Vogue, Elle, Nylon and the like (hence my lack of knowledge on designer names or current fashion events :D). I actually am a regular reader of Business Week and Time as I enjoy analyzing current market trends and figuring out how the future of business will be like. The only source I get my fashion knowledge from would probably be, well, your blogs...:)
  • Given the above, fashion for me is very much a hobby that I enjoy freely without worrying on having to know the current trend or current ‘it’ designers. I buy and wear anything that I like, and I experiment with my clothes just for the sake of having fun...:)

Quote of the Day

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

- Marianne Williamson

A very, very beautiful, solid quote. We should have big dreams, and having them doesn’t make us a dreamer. It makes us; human.
