I've Given Up

Dear Friends,

It was great getting to know you.

Dear Rachel,

It was fun while it lasted.

But I think it's time I stopped fooling myself.

This is the end of Releasing The Tension, it seems it's all been released. :)

I'm still very, very and by very I mean, very sick. Being "under the weather" is putting it very mildly.

The good thing about being sick is - I've not been to work in days. Less of my workplace is always a good thing.

Anyhoots, here is another Taipei shot of my newly chopped and dyed(?) hair, my lovely Prada butterflies and my blue nails in a random streetsnap by one of the gang on our trip to Taipei.

*sniff* *hack* *cough*

Hope everyone's doing better than I am. ♥

On Hold

I fell terribly sick in Taiwan, and fell even sicker upon returning home.

Blogging will resume when depression and disease lift.

Meanwhile, enjoy this blurry pic of my latest addition to my Moschino t-shirt collection. (Yes, I began collecting Moschino tees about four or five years back. It's a hobby that makes me very happy.) I bought it just a week before my trip to Taipei and wore it to our first night out clubbing in Taipei.

I hope to be back in better health and spirit soon.

What I Want To Wear #2

Inspired by those Balmain shoulders, and my incredible urge to wear pink tights these few days..

Have a good weekend lovelies. I'll be somewhat MIA, as I'll be in Taipei on a short holiday with the boyfriend and our friends for the next couple of days. There are FIVE Vivienne Westwood stores in Taipei apparently. I am going to make sure I get to one.:D Wish me luck!

I Love Christian Lacroix

Rachel and I finally went for the Christian Lacroix: The Costumier exhibition at the National Museum of Singapore and it was such a treat. We met late Saturday morning, the museum was nice and quiet with a lovely mix of old Singapore architecture spruced with glass and marble and fancy light structures. There was an installment of swinging red (or were they black?) chandeliers over the large atrium where all the escalators were. The escalators were like different rivers, each one you took would take you to a different place. We found the one that led us to Lacroix and gleefully hopped on.

I doubt I could properly find the words to describe what a gorgeous exhibition it was. I have to give props to the curators at our museum who did such an excellent job. It was quiet, dark, with a lush interior and beautiful music spanning from opera to musicals - the works that Mr Lacroix had been a costumier for. I can already feel my descriptions degrading what I've seen and what I've experienced. Unfortunately, Rachel and I didn't take a lot of pictures, because we really were quite awestruck by all the beauty. So we do hope this little snippet can offer you a taste of what Rachel and I were privileged to enjoy.

A beautiful range of dresses and robes for the theatre.

Spinning tutus above us! In a room that had walls of angelic white curtain, delicately draped and functioned as a screen on which ballet performances were projected on. Ethereal and breathtaking. I really loved this little room.

I wish I could aptly describe to you the detail of this dress, the way the bodice was stitched, the way the layers fell - I would wear this dress in a heartbeat. Exquisite.

His sketches for Shakespeare's Othello - the ladies.

His sketches for Shakespeare's Othello - the gents.

I remember leaving the exhibition with 1000 new ideas for dance costumes for future performances. I hope the exhibition travels to your city soon! It's truly remarkable.

Heavy Shoes For Heavy Hearts

As you know, I've been very crushed due to certain crushing events these past days. So when I was out about town yesterday, I stepped into our local Dries Van Noten store and tried on these favourites of mine. I remember seeing them on the runway and positively drooling. That thick black bandeau across the foot is just the sexiest thing I've ever seen. Not to mention, terribly comfortable.

I felt a fraction bit better, as I trotted around the store in these beauties. Certainly a very fashionable respite.
