Pastel Dreams Come True

In an earlier blog post (here), I wrote about having pastel dreams and having a major crush on pastel coloured outfits. So, I was most delighted when the pastel coloured shirt dresses I sent to make for my store a couple of months earlier arrived. What perfect timing! Named ‘Sugar Rush’, these shirt dresses come in an array of macaroon hues- powder pink, baby blue and lilac. Not being quite able to decide which is my favourite colour yet (i love them all!), I went for the powder pink first and wore it for a trip to the National Museum with the boy.
I took along my new bag from Tocco Tenero (I love the nude hue of the bag and the texture of the bag flap!) and before entering the museum, the boy whipped out his camera and we started taking some shots. So engrossed we were that guess what, the museum closed before we had a chance to step in! Such a complete ‘duh’ moment, it was hilarious. 
For those who participated in the earlier Tocco Tenero bag giveaway, thank you! Big congratulations to the winner, Xue Qi! 
What I really like about this bag, besides the design and colour, is the versatility and functionality of it. It can be carried with the short strap on your shoulder kinda like a hobo bag, or as an across-the-body bag with the longer strap. There are these pieces of straps that you can take out or add on depending on the length you want the strap to be. How awesome! I had quite a bit of fun playing around with them. I tried to take pictures of the various lengths and straps:

The boy got us tickets to watch Cranberries live on Monday. It was quite a surprise that they’re back again considering I last watched them in August last year (I think?). I’m sure you know that most bands don’t stop by Singapore that often. Anyhow, it was great and I love listening to live gigs. So does the boy, so I like to think that we have some sort of a music bond there. I actually get most of his music stuff, except the part about the metal. That part of music I really can’t understand. All that growling and shouting. Haha. 
The stage backdrop was really simple and pretty. The use of lights and backdrop colours mixed reminded me of watercolour paintings and I tried desperately to get a good shot of it, but my iPhone camera definitely didn’t do it justice.

I started doing gellish nails recently and have been really excited about getting new crazy designs. This month, I went for polka and black Hello Kitty nails. Catching glimpses of my nails throughout the day actually make me smile now. The boy totally doesn’t understand my new obsession and just thinks I’m paying too much for something so temporary. Pfft…boys. What do they know!
Outfit of the day was this leopard print collar playsuit from Pink Flare matched with red lips and everything else in the above pictures. Red lips make me feel sexy so! 
Thinking that Toto, the dog would love my red lips as much as I do, i tried to take a picture with him. Evidently, the red lips did nothing for him as you can tell from his disinterested and squirmy demeanuor in the pictures.
 He did much better on his own and these are a couple of his ‘handsome’ shots. Do excuse his sleepy face. It was possibly 3am in the morning and all he wanted to do was…
s l e e p.

On a complete random note, I am digging this oversized boyfriend tee and jeans casual look below. Isn’t it a great look for travel and flights?
Plus, the shirt dresses I mentioned in my earlier post are now out on Pink Flare. Take your pick from gorgeous macaroon hues Here
