queen of hearts.

i just watched alice in wonderland this afternoon, & since this is my blog, i might as well say this here & now: it was nice. somewhere in between pleasant & decent, i'd say. it was as if tim burton got bored & decided to go crazy w/ a palette of colors.. idk, it just felt like, the plot, though exciting & action-packed, just wasn't developed enough.. good job on the special effects though. i liked how everything, especially the background setting, was deliberately made to look fake. i feel it really adds to the surrealistic feel of it; the colors only maxed it up.


i think anne hathaway (the white queen) should have dyed her eyebrows the same color as her hair. then again, they may have been aiming for a contrast.. something to match her lips & nails perhaps? :/

but oh well. like cheesie, & probably every other girl who considers shopping/fashion not just another obsession, but a vital element in her life, i was inspired. the dresses alice wore maaarvelous, & need i say more about the hats?!

..okay fine, not inspired. that's way too "creative" for me. i guess i'm just not like that. i am however, craving for something in a pretty "alice" blue. not quite sky blue (too nancy-looking), not too dark like robin's egg blue either.. i'll know it when i see it. sigh. damn you, shopping urges.. damn. you.

cotton-blend jacquard playsuit

available at net-a-porter.com

i can only dream.. and continue hunting down a navy-colored, cotton-linen romper of a similar cutting with small brass buttons & maybe a cute tiny-polka-dotted print.

crossed out!

in the past few weeks i've managed to buy two accessories that have been on my list for quite a bit, both of which i'd say were quite difficult to find, but at last, i have them!

1) nude nail polish (the perfect shade!): etude house, $4/5++?

2) black lip sunnies: cash converters in jurong for just $4.00, would you believe?! has uv protection! i was actually planning to buy a pair from some party supplies store in holland v. cuz they had the never-before-seen red, vampire lips one, but oh well. $10.00ish more for badly painted white teeth? no thanks. besides they're already outta stock, so oh well. just consoling myself..

*EDIT: superrr late post.. what to do.
