Louis Vuitton S/S 2012 campaign


Was browsing around online for similar ad campaigns to the Miss Dior Cherie one I watched in Advertising class today. I love the idea of frolicking in pastel frou frou clothes without a care in the world. Stumbled upon this one for LV's SS12 campaign and fell in love. The ice cream and colours also remind me of Mulberry SS12.

















I am pretty much in love with the way S/S12 is looking. Give me brights! Give me pastels! Give me sunshine! I can imagine myself prancing around Paris eating macarons from Laduree while listening to Yelle or Le Tigre on my iPod as I bicycle though the 8th arrondissment (or whatever number arrondissment I so choose). Here's an idea of what I'd wear:

 And just in case you wanted to know, the ad we watched in class today. Miss Dior Cherie by Sofia Coppola:

25 January 2012: Selca-ed with Mr. Choi Si Won himself. :)

Edit:// Pic edited with a watermark now cause someone managed to find the original Rachel and I posted and censored our faces out. WTH! I don't mind if you take my picture but ask for my permission first instead of just blacking it out.

I now have a complete set: his autograph and picture. :')

You can view my complete Super Junior personalised autographed CD here: http://paperdolled.blogspot.com/2009/06/you-have-every-right-to-be-jealous-of.html

I'll do an account of my encounter soon-ish when uni work is out of the way.

steam

"And again felt that odd sensation, a ripple of awareness sliding over her nerves, leaving them sensitized." - A Rake's Vow by Stephanie Laurens.


Haha no comment. I saw this on Facebook and thought that it'd be fun seeing as I only own romance novels. But to be fair, the steamy parts only come way after page 45.

In another note, I am in love with Christina Hendricks' acting! Urggggh the way she glides and talks. Her mannerisms on Mad Men are to die for! I think she's so well put together, I want to be as snarky and polished as she is.

i need you

How could I leave without a number in my hand 
I went to go on Facebook, will I get a face back 
Trying to find you is like a needle in a haystack.



I'm pissed I never took your number 
Now you're nowhere to be found 
I'm going mad, I need you 
I been searchin' all over Facebook, 
and I can't seem to find you.

An open letter to Matt Willis

Sometimes I cry at night thinking...

how lucky I am to have met my childhood idol. Matt Willis you were everything I thought you would be and more. Thank you so much for being so amazing, courteous and nice and friendly. To think of all those nights I used to spend when I was 12-14 years old staring at my Busted posters that I ripped out of my Top of the Pops, It's Hot, Smash Hits magazines wondering whether I'd ever get a chance to meet the band. Getting my heart broken at 14 when Busted disbanded thinking I'd NEVER have a chance to meet you, James or Charlie ever. I'm just so so so grateful to have had the chance to meet you. I'm sorry if I freaked you out (or everyone else) when I cried after you signed my program book. People must've been wondering, 'what's wrong with that crazy Asian girl, he just signed her book for Christ's sake'.

You are amazing, Busted was amazing, Wicked was amazing, you as Fiyero was amazing, I cannot wax lyrical about how amazing you are enough.


Don't be shocked if you see me and my friend outside the stage door again sometime for a second picture. :P

Hey your face would be puffy too if you were tearing

Just taking some time off from writing a shitload of essays. Outfit I wore to London today to film Julie Meyer and Tinchy Stryder for FAME magazine. Riding in a secret film location in East London was...beyond words.

MA

In exactly one year, Fashion Journalism shall be mine.

This is going to be my year, and I will do everything in my power to make this happen. Starting...NOW.

New resolutions:

  1. Be more articulate. Eliminate all hints of a Manglish accent. I don't mind being mistaken for being American, but it would be nice to cultivate a British one while I am here. I'll have an excuse at least.
  2. Start writing personal statement and course requirements.
  3. Start sucking up to my tutors/lecturers.
  4. Get a job in fashion retail. Suck up to boss.
  5. Start taking classes and assignments more seriously. I need to graduate.
  6. Devise ways to not go home (to Malaysia). Find baby daddy when situation gets desperate.
  7. Develop more creativity. Look at more magazines. Visit more museums since they're now at my backyard (sort of).

This list is a work in progress. Of course I guess it clear as day that I can't work that new 'stupid' persona of mine where I talk in an idiot voice and feign stupidity and lack of general knowledge. I guess its all in the presentation of self; I need to be knowledgeable yet approachable. Positivity, not negativity. Breathe in all the positively-charged air. Embrace slow-minded people and show them the pathway to enlightenment in a friendly and polite manner.

Alexa Chung for Vero Moda spring 2012.


Urgh how much more perfect can she be? 

Makes me feel like running around in cute collared dresses and ribboned shirts staring into nothing-ness along with awesome music, awesome weather and just soaking up awesomeness. (Mean Girls quote here, hahaha)

Somebody get me the white and black dress she wears in the last look, or show me where to get it. Please, please, please pretty please!

this week in pictures

  


This week was filled with aimless nothings. lots of movies, mad men and constant stalking of my queen Alexa.
I've also started learning the lines to Jawbreaker and drinking poisonous levels of tea and coffee.

Assignments await.
