"Stories are like genies...They can carry us into and though our sorrows. Sometimes they burn, sometimes they dance, sometimes they weep, sometimes they sing. Like genies, everyone has one. Like genies, sometimes we forget that we do. Our stories can set us free...When we set them free."
- Francesca Lia Block

Make up-free Saturday morning as I was running VERY VERY late for a morning fitting for my Maid of Honor gown. It was my first fitting and can I just say- the dress, the color, the draping and the fir were all just MAGICAL. I loved it so much, so glad I didn't miss out on that one. A simple tip when going makeup free is to wear bright, bold lips...they compensate the paleness and I would know, considering I am so pale-faced and snow white. Another trick when going makeup-less are REALLY BIG SUNNIES. The bigger the better.
(I was going 'incognito' for the day and thus had to hide)


The accessories up close: Love the shell and coral detail of my bib necklace so much!

At the Atelier: I could not resist the urge to take photos with the massive Baroque inspired mirror!

It's TART: I love the color combination. Reminds me of an Herve Berry Hued dress I have yet to wear!

Who knew makeup free would be so much fun? I know I definitely enjoyed the skin breather!

All About Chemistry

"...choose to believe in your own myth
your own glamour
your own spell
a young woman who does this
(even if she is just pretending)
has everything...."
Francesca Lia Block (How to (Un)cage a Girl)

Corset Top: Topshop| Skirt: Glitterati | Belt: Vintage Satin Rainbow Watercolor Belt from Mom| Shoes: Zara| Purse: Salvatore Ferragamo

I gave in to color blocking!!! And can I just say- one of my favorite Spring/Summer 2011 trends EVER! Spot the new Zara shoes. I went berserk trying to get a hold of this pair in my size (UK 38, which is the most common size ever) But I am so lucky I got to get a hand on these babies!

Wore this to the TRIUMPH Event (I shall blog about soon) at Members Only followed by din-din and drinks at Craft, a new place at the Fort Strip where I got to listen to a great new musician, Johnoy! I officially got into the FANS CLUB! haha

We ♥ Johnoy!!! Look at Pearl (fellow blogger, from http://pearlescentstyle.blogspot.com/) So cute with a poster pa! (From Top; L-R: Pearl , Johnoy, Tricia | Bottom; L-R: Lean of http://lomolean.blogspot.com/, Me, Mica)
