|Trend Forecasting: Bicycle Shorts
||[Aug. 25th, 2010|12:35 am]
I read somewhere that every blogger goes through their "nua" period, and maybe this is mine. And mine is quite loooong--- A post every once a month or so. I'm sorry! I don't really have anything to post. Photos can be uploaded on Facebook, thoughts can be shared on Facebook too. I think Facebook should do a blogging function too so it just saves me time to move from FB to LJ =P
Well, anyway, guess what came in the mail today!
These sweet black laced cycling shorts! (bought for $13 from http://www.rosylang.blogspot.com)
I've been anticipating for these cycling shorts to be available for us to buy since I saw it in the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 collection when I was at LV Ion Orchard checking out their visual merchandising. Quite ridiculous to pay more than a hundred for them right?
Also, I felt even more stupid when I researched on how to wear them and found out that you can just take your leggings and cut them to your desired cycling shorts-length and wear them under a dress, a pair of shorts, or loose tees! :/
I'm feeling really geared up to wear them with heels and my low-back black dress one day!
Other trends I've forecasted are garterbelts and paperbagskirts too.
This skirt is from Babooshka.com but the picture should be from http://www.Aonygoesparis.blogspot.com
This is found on Lookbook.nu by Aimee S. :)
I can't wait for my module Apparel Production 1 so I can hopefully make these cute paperbag skirts! I don't know if I will wear them though :)
So just to add on and share more about my day today, which was quite fun? I guess haha.
Things did not turn out as planned and I did not have a rough idea on how to spend my Tuesday but I guess God made it happen.
And I'm very happy about my holidays so far! I've refuelled my love for fashion once again since it died the past month due to Textile Manipulation and Design.
I had planned with Emma to go to TPDES Print Shop and do tie & dye on our own shirts for fun. We were supposed to meet at 11am.
But I overslept! Lately, whenever there is school I will oversleep gosh. But now holidays also I still oversleep when I need to go to school.
Oh wells then I got up and dressed really down--- my brother's grey checkered shirt, my pink girl face shirt and denim shorts complete with a pair of wedges and I did not wear much makeup out.
My friend once said, "You don't have a sense of urgency to be on time or early". True, true. So after I got dressed, I decided to do a big quiff or a 'currypuff' bun as we Singaporeans call it, and tie up my hair :)
Then my boyfr called and asked to join me at school because his job interview just ended and I was like, sure! Why not?
We met up and went to tampines MRT stn. My boyfr said he'd like to use my school's computer to send a business email to somebody and I was like, really not in the mood to go to school so I convinced my boyfr not to go to my school because its still the holidays and no one goes back to school.. And we can use the wireless and our iTouch in Tampines Mall. Haha! He thought something was up luh, like why I suddenly don't wanna go to school =_="'
After that we went to Macs and I bought a meal there and he used the internet. Suddenly, Cherie called me and asked me to run an errand for her and I was like, sure why not? So off we go! Boyfr & I went to Ion to shop, blah blah then he left me to shop alone because he had to teach guitar then I walked around and could not find what Cherie needed. :/ I went to Wheelock too and then after that Far East to look for what she needed but I really could not find!!! So damn hard to find. Okay the thing that I was looking for was a wallet and it had to be $30. Who buys a wallet at $30? Especially a very good quality one??? Lol! Anyway, I will try my best again at Clarke Quay tomorrow after Bible Study..
So I walked into a beads shop at Far East at about 8pm. There used to be a beads shop at Fareast a long long time ago and I regretted not buying anything from that shop because it was a very good shop. I love beads shop! Any place where has beads is lovely. I get sooo inspired to make and design things! In fact I have a design in mind. I should sketch it out later on my sketch book in case I forget. I just spent a good whole 1 hour time at that bead shop looking and being inspired. You can make a ring there for less than $10. How cheap is that?! You just have to choose your ring base + a resin thingy + your flower decoration whatever! And pay 50 Cents to use their glue. And they have the same beads and filigrees whatever you call that as the rings which you see at Forever 21 and on blogshops. Haha.
I am definitely going back there to make a ring! After I think through properly my design because it is very very.. complicated.
By the way, if you are like me, interested in beads shop, it is located at #03-13 in Far East Plaza. The lady boss is korean and speaks English really well and she is very friendly :)
Well, tomorrow I am going to Woodlands to make a huuuuge card with my friends and then we're going to support the-always-empty YOG CONCERT!!!!! Hahahaha damn sad la 1,000 empty chairs... Then after that I will go to riverwalk for the last time for Bible Study because it is going to be moved to CityCollege in Bukit Timah!! And that is blood far man! Luckily I've got a straight bus there ;)
Alright, I hope to blog more and more :) But I know next month is stress-month because there is post-mortem and portfolios of my past 6 months to be done.
I miss my classmates Emma, Rae, Jenna, Alster, Hannah, Max, Jasmine, LiQin and Michelle!!!
