  • I’ve been so bogged down and stressed out with submissions week that when my photographer-friend Amanda sent me these photos, I was so preoccupied with how nice the photos turned out that worries about my Doctor Faustus essay disappeared :’)
    I’ve heard so much about Amanda’s work before because she’s a really sought-after blogshop photographer. So I was really excited when I got the chance to be introduced to her at a Fox-Out lookbook shoot last month. Seeing her gorgeous photographs, I had to team up with her to shoot for 1blog2lives – you basically have to get your fashion shoots done with her, because firstly, she’s a damn good photographer, and secondly, she’s a girl – she knows when your fringe is out of place, if your shirt is not tucked in right, or if you have a make-up smudge – so you can be assured there will be no wardrobe malfunctions in your photos. Throughout the shoot Amanda constantly made sure my outfits were in place, and that my face was hair-strand-less, I felt so mommy-ed by her!
    Amanda’s such an amazing girl really: pretty, smart (she’s a business undergrad), incredibly hardworking, creative… AND what I love most about her is her “guys, we all need to chill out and just take good photos man – cos that’s just life” attitude. What’s not to love?This is the first installment of my shoot with Amanda, check back soon to view more photos shot by her. In the meantime, if you want to see more of Amanda’s works, here are the necessary links:

  • Fashion – Taylor Swift Inspired

  • I have this new found girl crush on Taylor Swift. I think she’s becoming more bad-ass, which is really refreshing! Good riddance to all those “woe is me”; “my life sucks”; “this guy is too good for me” songs. In her latest album, she’s all “Hell yea, let’s do this shit! We’re moving on with life! We’re never ever getting back together!” Loving the new Taylor!

    I felt like this outfit channeled Taylor Swift really well (minus the red lips cos I don’t think I can pull off red very well), poor Alvin had to endure a Taylor Swift playlist in the car after he helped me shoot these pictures because I was in such a Taylor Swift mood! Sorry dude.

    In today’s post, I’m wearing a LaModaVivo dress, my mom’s head scarf, and Jipaban shoes.

    Here’s a little more about LaModaVivo: Loosely translated, LMV stands for ‘The Fashion Alive’ in Spanish. It’s a humble online fashion boutique that sells both work and casual wear. This dress is featured in LMV’s very first collection, available from 11th November 2012 at 11am onwards. I really like the quality of the dress – the flare at the bottom half of the dress is to die-for as well. Check out LMV’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LaModaVivo (don’t forget to like their page if you like what you see), or alternatively visit their website at LaModaVivo.com (:

  • Fashion – Feeling All Librarian-ish

  • Here’s how I would wear shorts to school. Not with a t-shirt or tank top, which in my opinion would be a tad sloppy, but with a button-up sleeveless top and a cardigan to prep up my outfit. And of course, with my spectacles to get that added “intellectual” look. Time to head down to the library to do some research!I got this cardigan from Lizzie-shop.com – check out the back of the cardigan (see pictures below). The flow-y gatherings at the back made it so fun to wear! To get this cardigan (retailing at $24), head on down to http://lizzie-shop.com/products/chiffon-mix-cardigan/.

    Black cardigan from Lizzie-shop.com, top from Topshop, shorts from Cotton On, shoes from Topshop
    Okay I know Halloween is over, but I couldn’t resist:
