  • Hey guys,
    Before i blog about my OOTD, I have some exciting news to share! While having dessert with friends at Ion Orchard, I bumped into Style Network’s “How Do I Look” host, Jeannie Mai! Joyce and I (and my dad!) really enjoy watching her show, so to get to see her in Singapore was pretty major. 😀 To those who are unfamiliar with Jeannie and her show, on “How Do I Look”, Jeannie transforms drab-looking people into glamourous swans by teaching them what to wear and how to do up their hair and make-up.
    She’s known for her signature blue streaks, so when I first saw her from the back, I was all “that’s so Jeannie Mai” then she turned around and I was all “HOMG THAT *IS* JEANNIE MAI”. While taking the photo with her, I was so Starstuck my heart was about to explode from beating so fast. Best thing is she retweeted my tweet (i posted a photo of us on twitter), you can check it out on my twitter page at @dreachong!
    Okay, enough of my fangirl moment, am blushing and smiling to myself so hard while typing this my cheeks hurt.
    Today’s outfit was shot at Seletar again, this time we went to the colonial houses to shoot them. I’m doing another maxi-skirt post cos I’m absolutely in love with my new ASOS A Wear maxi skirt I got on sale for about S$40. The sheerness of the material makes it really flow-y and you just want to twirl around in it all the time.
    Top from Zara. Hat, bracelet, and necklace from Topshop. Shoes from DKNY.

  • Fashion – Jane from Tarzan

  • Since Joyce has to monitor her younger brother’s revision for his PSLE Prelims, she sadly doesn’t have much time to hang out, so i had to approach some kind soul who would be willing to go for photoshoots with me. I imagine it would be a hassle, since I’m making that person travel all the way to some god-forsaken place with me just to press a button multiple times. Anyway, the person that I managed to find was my younger brother (see: family as source of cheap exploitable labour for your projects). Though i didn’t actually ASK him per se, it was more of “eh, this Sunday evening you’re helping me with a photoshoot”. Okay so maybe I coerced him into doing this, but i must say, i am really impressed with his shots! Kudos to him for having a delicate eye for photography, it will definitely get better with time! (:

    We went to Seletar this time round, i was kinda inspired by the colonial houses that are built around the area, and I thought the outfit I picked out today was pretty colonial-esque, something that Jane from Tarzan would wear. I’m wearing my Topshop white shirt you’ve seen in my previous fashion post Neon (Pink) Obsession, and a maxi skirt from Catwalkclose (a skirt I wish was in chiffon). Shoes are from Far East Plaza and they are incredibly comfortable, accessories are from Topshop and Diva.
    Speaking of skirts, I intend to buy fabric from Arab St/ Chinatown and send it for tailoring to make maxi skirts cos I’m not really a fan of spending $100 for a long piece of cloth. I will try to get the best quality for a reasonable price and let you guys know how it goes!
