Happy Lunar New Year!

Neglecting all the other posts that are supposed to be in line first, happy Lunar New Year loves! I don't know if it's due to my Asian roots or whatever, I am somehow more excited for Lunar New Year instead. Maybe it's because I get to wear crazy qibaos. Or dress in red from head to toe pretending I'm Valentino's ambassador. Or perhaps sporting the glamorous 1920ish up-dos. Oh, and of course, the wonderful red envelopes with fortunes enclosed. Yes, you know what I'm talking about. Angpaos! Maybe that's the reason why. Hee. Anyways, to celebrate yet our most favourite holiday season of the year, Ave and I head to take some proper pics in a proper studio, aiming for editorials kind of results. Hope you love it as much as we do!

my favourite of the bunch. wearing an embellished phoenix semi-qibao dress, resting on bed of roses.
for once, the sloucher can finally sit upright! yaaaaaay.
thinking whether i shall steal the gorgeous vintage radio or not. hmm.
so far, this shot has been my friends' most favourite.

dressing in a yukata daddy gave me when I still sat in grade 5. told you, i have been, am, and probably most likely going to be big. whoops! #truestory
details of the accessories : a lucky find of an antique button from The Button Lady, a regular at Camberwell Sunday Market- such a sweet old lady she is- worn as a ring and  drop bug-gems earrings from ASOS.
full frontal pic at last! last bit of the accessories : the YSL arty ring in lapis. my love.
Last but not least, we are wishing you loves an auspicious and prosperous year ahead! Gong Xi!

Keira Belle

Hello, hello!! First and foremost, happy new year, loves! May this new year bring forth fresh, new beginnings of happy journeys ahead! Hee. Time flew so fast and I can barely believe it's 2013 already. Not to mention that even January had passed without a single post. Uh-oh. Anyway, so many exciting things had happened during the month and I can't wait to share them with you all! To begin with, one of the most exciting moments was styling little Miss Keira Belle's - Surabaya's own mini fashionista - photo shoot taken by dearest Ave. Just see how adorable she is!

first theme : afternoon tea party! keiralocks (referring to goldilocks here, but do you know that keira means the black-haired one? great coincidence, isn't it!) having a pleasant tea party with mama bear, wearing a floral-embroidered, tiered dress in the cutest shade of pink every little girl should have. or so i think.
don't forget to invite papa bear! kei feeding papa bear with a cup of love. me kinda jealous. okay, scratch kinda. me SUPER jealous.
next theme: princess kei preparing for her debutante ball! fixing her floral crown with ultimate care and precision, floating in her glorious cotton candy ballgown.
now it's time the princess to choose what shoes to wear! yes people, even a two years old girl can't resist smiling by the sight of pretty,teeny-tiny-dainty, shoes.

blooper of the day : princess got bored waiting for her carriage to take her to the ball. do not fear, she managed to use the time wisely to take pictures of us instead using her super adorable Disney Princesses digital camera!

finally, the last theme: kei and the company of the whole bear family! i just can't resist smiling after seeing her radiant smile. seriously, her joy is contagious.

little miss sunshine beaming joyfully. hee.

me grinning from ear to ear as a result. she's soooo cute i'm gonna die!
