Gossip Girl's HOT look

Those who were up and front with the fashion world were probably aware about this already, but I still would like to share with you guys about this news and my own personal take on it. It is not the SewingPHOBIA's take on it, so my dear mates who share SewingPHOBIA, please do not kill me.... for whatever reasons that may prop up.

I am not a very up and coming person when it comes down to the Hollywood news, fashions and looks, so you must know that I have no watched Gossip Girl before, and I have no idea who is Taylor Momsen.

But when I saw her look on the newspaper, I was interested. I thought she is a pretty good dresser, and she does pay attention to details. Her good skin is also a great help in her gear-up. I did read that there are people who thought that her looks are too "consistent" and without creativity after a while. To that, I felt that fashion is not really about changing. It is really about dressing up as yourself and how you like to look, and how comfortable you are in the look and attire.

So, in that sense, I don't really think she is a boring dresser. I do think that she is a fashionable person. So when NewLook had a GossipGirl look and promotion, I was pretty excited. Despite being the new girl in town (well, it is pretty much still NEW, if you compare it to ZARA and MNG, who had been around in SG for ages), NewLook had been fast on catching attention in the fashion world in SG. But I had not been very interested in their products due to reasons such as heavy pricing and attires that did not interest me when I stepped into their store. BUT! The new promotion looks cool and interesting, so you might want to drop by their stores to check them out.

I mean, Jackets that were selling for 99 were now dropped to 49..... are you crazy? If NewLook is crazy now, then we had better make full use of it, do you agree?

Before the promotion ends, that is.

OUTFIT - In Da Club

As you probably know already, SewingPHOBIA started because of we want to shop. And because of that, We really really thank you guys for shopping with us all these time. I love the clothes, so we wanted to share them with you.... that is, how we wear the clothes we do buy from our store. We will be sharing photos of clothes worn by our friends (who kindly agreed to help us) as well as our models and ourselves.

The weather had been really really hot and humid now, and many people are spotted in shorts. But I do see a number of jeans around. Are these the only options we girls have? NO.

If you think that the weather is too hot for long pants, and you are tired of shorts/dresses/skirts, there are always other alternatives. For instance, do you remember the glory days of Meteor Garden, where the female lead played by Barbie Hsu could be seen in 3/4 jeans? That brought about a huge wave for 3/4 pants, and everyone seems to be wearing them. But now that everyone is dreaming of the korean F4, our 3/4 jean pants are probably hidden in the depths of our wardrobe.

Well, summer is here and the weather is hot like hell. If you do not wish to opt for dresses or skirts and are too tired of wearing shorts, perhaps it is time to take out those 3/4 pants and don them now~

Alternatively, you can try the tights, if your blouse is long enough. Be warned, however, that tights are NOT replacements for your bottoms. They are NOT pants, and should not be worn as pants.

For shoes, you can try platform scandals, as opposed to flipflops. I love the way the straps worked around the legs and it really looked beautiful and femine. The choker is a D.I.Y. piece done using the same top. If you noticed, there was a leather strap on the original blouse. That was removed and made into a choker.

TOP: AD213 from pre-order 5 (instocks available)
CHOKER: leather strap from the same piece.

Lotions and Creams and the Uglist face ever.

What are the most problematic issue amongst the many troubles a woman has?

I think FACE is the answer. It is the cover of the book in which a reader may choose to pick up or leave back on the shelves.
So I tried to do a bit more for my disastorious face. Well, I must say that I forgot things here and there, and got too lazy to do things, but sometimes, you just have to work hard enough to get your bottom off the ground and raise your hands towards the shelves.
FOr fellow moaners who joined me in my frenzy of "why do I have to apply so many creams and lotions on my face???", JOIN ME~ Let's cheer each other up...

I have a little something for myself, actually.... With my meager artistic skills, I guess, there is only something I need to do for myself, and that is to draw the uglist picture I could ever manage.
So that it would stick itself in my mind and remind myself that I need to put on those table-full of lotions and creams.
It really is very ugly.
