This is gonna be my last post in a looong time. After today I'm swearing off the computer for two months, which explains the bombardment of posts today. It's sad 'cos I haven't seen all the collections and I wanted to do a compilation of dream clothes for my spring wardrobe. I think I won't have time to make a prom dress so I've come up with an outfit from my closet. I really like the outfit! It has a bit of a classic, vintage vibe. I'm not buying anything, not even shoes. That way I can save money for my education next year. I'm a little scared by the recession now. Especially 'cos my brother works for an American bank. I don't think we'd be badly hit, but we must allow for a worst-case scenario. It makes me hesitant about studying fashion, 'cos I don't want to add to my family's financial burden. But I'm quite determined not to turn back, unless I don't get into any schools. Which is a likely scenario, but I want to at least try.

Okay, more pictures! Menswear-inspired as well.
My mum's pants. From their bagginess I'd say they're from the '80s. I tried two pant lengths and liked both. My sis says she likes me in pants.
Also my mum's pants, worn with my grandma's lace camisole. I like the subtle checks and zipper details.

This is the outfit I was referring to in my previous post. I think it's SUPER DUPER COOL. I must be a deprived kid. What else could explain my desire to cross-dress? You can tell from the silly smile on my face that I so enjoy doing this :) I knew I should have bought the pirate hat from Tokyo Disneyland. Then I can wear it with this outfit. Muahahaha!

yeah i like the last outfit too. but how about putting it a spice of colour besides black and white like wearing a bright-coloured or earthy brown-coloured shirt? i'm seeing too much black and white for next season's collection. it's depressing. haha. eh spring summer 2008 jean paul gaultier is very piratish too =D and i like the hole-y wedding dresses he did. so fun! this year's gaultier stuffs not as fun. hermes is fun though. and i found a scarf at the bottom of my closet that can be used as a fringe wrap ala hermes spring summer 09.
i think the most memorable collections are from hermes, chanel, and anna sui. especially anna sui. she hasn't caught the black-and-white flu bug yet. thank goodness!

oh how about an oxidised metal buckle for a more piratish feel? =D
