Some say that we dress-up to attract attention from the opposite sex, but I beg to differ.
Reason is simple, I would think that dressing up is a form of self-love & respect,
and wanting to feel good after dressing up to make sure we get that confidence in ourselves whenever we head out.
Afterall, impression counts isn’t it?
And yet again, I strongly believe how we dress-up to derive a style of our own (I believe we each are associated with a particular main style,
and I bet your friends will point out that style for you if you haven realized it yourself!) is actually associated with what shows we watch and who are the people we follow –
and slowly, aim to achieve the so called similar style and all because that person(s) is just so beautiful (or handsome).
No doubt. Eg. I have a friend who has the height and look like Alessandra Ambrosio from Victoria Secret.
(my favourite is still mirander kerr)
In terms of her hair, style and the way she portrays herself..everything is so similar.
With that in mind, she (my friend) looks really hot too (and no, she doesn’t dress like the above).
And after a while, I realized her biggest idol is truly Alessandra Ambrosio since she was young!!
Guys, not gonna tell you who she is, she’s attached and getting married!!
So, I think I’m in love with too many characters and that’s probably how I get my “I-think-its-nice-but-hurhur-thinks-its-weird-sometimes” style. Geez.
Well, apparently, hurhur thinks I dress weirdly at time, it goes like this:
Me: (done dressing up) bee, I just bought this new top, pretty??
Hurhur: hmm Ok.. not bad but it’s kinda weird looking. But I don’t know how to appreciate what you are wearing today…
Me: huh? Not why weird??! I like this top a lot!
Hurhur: I don’t know.. sometimes the stuff you wear is kinda different and weird..
Well. After talking to a few guys and girls (mentioning about their BFs),
the nice style refers to just a simple dress or the basic outfits, and weird is most probably referring to like cape designs, hole designs of the top, unique neckline etc.
But but…. IT’S STYLE! See how gossip girls dress!!
So my point is, that’s another reason to show that our main aim is not to attract
(though im sure there is a bit of that, I mean, who doesn’t want to impress the “guy/girl” he or she likes right?)
but wanting to make ourselves feel good.
So it doesn’t matter if whoever finds it weird because it’s subjective,
or unless its like way overbearing to most such as some girls-
wearing super low cut but has the not supposed to surface bra showing out,
or very obvious VPL or skirts as short as the undergarment etc, for that, it’s really really.. weird in a negative way.
So coming back into the style topic, yes, I love watching gossip girl and exploring their styles!
I know a lot of my guy friends watch it too, so definitely, the styles are truly not weird sometimes, just UNIQUE. Teehee.
But there are certain apparels that I never thought could go together,
but after watching, it does create a very different yet admiring outfit after they pieced them together.
That’s one of the awesomeness about the show!
And talking about that,
a few bloggers and myself attended an amazing party by Robinsons & Mio Tv-
The Prime Time Fall Fashion, last week at one of Singapore’s newest and well-known club – Avalaon @ MBS.
First pic: Nicole, Yina & myself
Second pic: Myself, Nicole, Vel, Valerie & Michelle.
Great to know that Vel and Nicole were gracing the event as well,
and it was see familiar faces and it was good to see other familiar faces like Huiwen, Clara, Alexa, Yina, Zoe, Qiuting which made the night an enjoyable and fun-filled one.
Not only that, I made three new friends, our very own Miss Singapore 2011 (this year!) Valerie, and two Michelle, definitely a pleasure.
We had a lil fun at the entrance before the event starts!
With vel, Nicole and huiwen. Vel wore this real gorgeous pair of wedges that made us all feel short! Heh.
Nicole and I decided to go RED for our dressing,
and it was uber easy to spot us amongst the crowd as most were donned in black. In the end,
we received so many printed-out shots by the event’s team and were tasked to pass to the friends in the pictures. Heh.
With Alexa and zoe.
And we spotted tough FRESH MEAT outside patrolling, I was feeling normal but I think vel was really excited (check out the cheeky look). Geez. :p
Looking at the Robinsons above, you know there is something different and exciting about it. A new feel of Robinsons and I like it.
The event that shows case the collaboration between Robinsons and Mio TV was quite a different experience.
As you might be thinking how they can team up, well, here what I am for to tell you!
Friends who know me would know that I can never get enough of the US TV series,
especially exciting & addictive ones like Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl etc and the next I am looking to watch is Nikita by the ultra hot Maggie Q!
And also, it’s awesome to be already subscribed to Singtel (in fact, my whole family is) be it for phone, internet, or TV because mio TV will be bringing to us all of these shows,
and the best part is they will be right on TV as soon as 24 hours after the US telecast!
With ultra clear quality, here are some of the shows:
1. Gossip Girl
2. The Mentalist
5. Desperate Housewives
6. Vampire Diaries
7. American Horror Story
8. Person of interest
9. Steven Spielberg’s Terra Nova
And many other more awaiting for you!
So like I have mentioned, these shows are popular because they have great story lines and very gorgeous and popular stars starring in it,
and that’s how people derived their admired characters in them, at the same time,
get their styles and re-create looks from these hit US TV series! Read on to know the next exciting part!
We headed right into Avalon first… and love the walkway!
Cool beans and roles changed, Nicole was my model for these shots. ;p
It was my first time stepping into Avalon and it was closed this even, it definitely looks very promising and I will be back to check out the club some day again. ;)
The bloggers all sat together and I must say the club has really comfortable seating cubicles that give you adequate privacy as well. Check out my gorgeous table mates!
Qiuting, Michellesweets, Valerie and michelleagy
Thanks to the staff to help us capture these shots!
And we met another familiar face – a tweeter friend qiuting and I met at the churpchurp gathering!
We had our share of drinks before the show starts, and as it’s called the Prime Time Fall Fashion,
we had the privilege to sit through the remarkable fashion show that Robinsons and Mio TV put together.
Like I have mentioned earlier that the shows introduced stars and another side of fashion that help re-create looks for people like us, and from these admired characters,
many of us actually get our dressing inspirations by watching them on shows.
And that’s how Robinsons play a part in helping us re-create these looks- by providing the widest range of styles including the basics as well as uniquely different outfits to make sure you walk in trend.
With that in mind, we were so excited about the fashion show that will be happening that night, right in front of us.
And lights changed, music out, we all faced towards the walkway. And before the show starts, look at the incredible view that was right in front of us…
Finally, show started!
Love the walkway and how the models stride across, all styled up with just Robinsons wardrobe! Ladies and Gentlemen,
you will be surprised to see what has Robinson’s designers came out for you in stores… check it out below!
It’s very interesting to view a short clip of the characters in the various US TV series first before we see real life models catwalking down the long stage,
each and every donned in the most stylish styles ever, similar looking to what you see on screen.
I was truly surprised by the latest collections that Robinsons came up with, how they styled and accessorized,
and I was already falling in love with so many pieces as the models walked by one by one. Kudos to Robinsons for such great styling and show!
Be your own celebrity and not just magazines, or shows now, you can actually GET those outfits with Robinsons!
I would probably head down myself to any of the Robinson stores again,
most probably the recently launched Robinsons Marina Bay Sands as it has a different range as compared to the rest-
a lifestyle concept boutique (which means you can find everything under one roof, from accessories to home fragrances,
lifestyle goods, lingerie, beauty products and fashion apparels).
