  • I wore this green dress to a blogger’s dinner party at The Boxing Crab (post up soon!) last Friday. My friends were complaining that I was dressed too glamorously dressed for the event. To be honest, I thought this was pretty casual already since I’m just wearing a dress and a necklace. Well apparently not according to them, but better to look glamourous than underdressed no? Plus, if I keep hoarding all these pretty dresses and saving them for future “formal formal” events (which I hardly go to anyway), where will I wear them out too?!
    To match the glamourous appeal of this dress, I googled “shades of green” to find a really sophisticated and regal term for this shade of green, so my dress will sound as alluring as it looks. I ended up with “Dartmouth Green” (say it in a posh and fabulous way), which coincidentally is literally the colour of this dress. Aside from the majestueux shade of green, check out the back of my Missypixie dartmouth green dress, do you love, or do you love? Okay I shall stop it with my farcical linguistic elitism. Back to normal Andrea 😛

    I paired my dress with one of my favourite necklaces from The Accessory Report, without which my outfit wouldn’t be complete!

    Today’s photos were shot and edited by Amanda, who also amazingly doodled the illustrations you see on the first picture. Yes, she said she “doodled” it, if that’s her definition of “doodling”, I have a long way to go as my doodles look like this:

    Amanda is offering her doodling services, so if you want her to doodle your pictures for you, contact her via her blog or facebook!

  • It has been such a terrible week, I had 3 exam papers (another 2 next week) and a tub of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. I mean, the Ben & Jerry’s was great don’t get me wrong, but I eat a lot when I study – a stressed out Andrea is a hungry Andrea! Thankfully, I have blogging to keep me sane and happy, I’m finding it quite cathartic to blog nowadays and it really helps in taking away the exam stress!
    Another thing that’s making me happy is my new Epicurations Antigona Inspired Satchel Bag featured in this post! (Shout-out to the lovely girls from Epicurations for giving me this bag!) I’ve been using the bag wherever I go nowadays because its so roomy, classy and versatile. Plus I am absolutely in love with the oxblood colour – it just makes any outfit stand out! The bag comes in black as well, so be sure to get yourself one! The oxblood one I have is currently sold out, but the girls at Epicurations are holding backorders for the bag. This means you can order your bag now, and it will arrive in 2-3 weeks time, better grab it quick before it gets sold out again!

  • Fashion – Denim Overalls

  • I went shopping with Amanda last week, and we saw so many denim overalls in Zara, Topshop, and Pull & Bear that Amanda exclaimed, “What’s up with this overalls trend?” Up till today, I don’t know if she meant it in a good or bad way, but personally, I reckon you should try out the denim overalls trend yourself this spring/summer!

    I know we usually associate denim overalls with “our mother’s era”, or something that farmers would wear, but with the right accessories and styling, I think it’s a really cute and adorable outfit! Did I just call a piece of clothing adorable? It’s super casual, youthful, fresh and laid-back – I felt so happy and young (ok i’m not old at all) while wearing my overalls in today’s OOTD shoot! Plus, if Alexa Chung has worn denim overalls more than three times, you know it’s a style trend you should be keeping your eye on:

    Shout-out goes to korean spree-focused blogshop Jumping Around for sponsoring me the denim overalls, which I absolutely love! I highly recommend shopping at Jumping Around if you’re looking for stylish Korean/ Japanese inspired trends, or if you want to get clothes you see in Vivi/ Jayjay magazines. Nachi, owner of JumpingAround, has selected many jumper designs to bring in this month, so do give the latest Apparel Spree a check out! The spree has closed for now, but it will reopen on the 3rd of May 0000hrs – I’ve already noted it down in my calendar! Readers – which means you – of my blog get to enjoy free normal postage, so quote “DREAXJA” to enjoy this benefit! (Code ends on the 31 May 2013)

    To the uninitiated, ordering through a spree means you have to wait 3-4 weeks for your items to arrive as spree organizers usually liaise with foreign suppliers directly, so it will take some time for your items to arrive. I like spree shopping because you don’t get to see most of the designs in Singaporean blogshops, and the photos featuring all the Jap/ Korean girls are so nicely shot that you feel so tempted to buy everything you see!

    Today’s photos were taken and edited by my bebe Amanda – you can check out more of her works at her blog and Facebook page! In case some of you did not know, Amanda is actually a fashion photographer, and if you want to learn fashion photography, you can look forward to a photography course she’s conducting on the 1st of June. She’s hosting a workshop titled “Fashion Portraiture Using Natural Light”, so if you want to know how to take and edit fashion-photography worthy shots, head on down to this website to book your tickets. There’s an AM and PM session, each session is 3 hours long and only costs $20 if you are a student! Imran and I will be attending the PM session, so see you there! (:
