Let the sky fall, when it crumbles

Popping by for a quick update cos tomorrow is a holiday
(whooppppeeeee!!)
and that probably means I won't be updating til don't-know-when.
Life has been the usual same-old, same-old,
just that the house is finally nearing completion and
i have spent countless weekends looking and shortlisting household stuff.
I hate to shortlist.
I am the 'I see, I like, I buy. NOW.' person
but YC needs to think about it, weigh it (literally),
hold it, hug it, sing a song to it etc.
before he determines that its Yes! The perfect one for the house!
And I am not even talking about big-purchase items like the sofa.
I was talking about water canisters to hold ice water. -.-


here is the first sneak peek of our place at night!
they have finally cleared away the cardboards on the floor,
so now it looks more like a home than a construction site.

Meanwhile, I haven't been going anywhere fancy these days,
so here are the little outfits i have clobbed together
from my poor exhausted wardrobe and some new buys.


wearing JOANN side peplum top with my gold tweedy shorts.
I feel like I am celebrating Christmas early, haha.
I really love how this peplum is not the usual full-round type,
but that it only flares out at the side.


I did this design cos i fell in love with the Zara version
which is super not pocket-friendly :((((


re-wore my MIRA top, this time tucked into high-waisted shorts.


Coincidentally, on the same day, I had to try on
another red high-neck sample top, this time with pretty scallop edges.
Can't wait for it to arrive in time for CNY :)

and lastly...my fav outfit of the week!


wanted to get this MNG eyelet skirt previously
but it was sold out in my size everywhere so i HAD to make this.
HAHAHAA. all the selfish reasons behind our WILLOW label.

I have also been consciously trying to do more stuff to my hair
instead of just leaving it the way it is everyday.
I remembered when I had short hair and was deeply envious of
anyone with long hair, I told myself that I would change my hairstyle
everyday when I had long hair.
MUAHAHAHA. Look what happened.
Somedays, I am lucky if I remembered to comb my hair -.-

much love,
Kelly

what size of the skirt do you wear? is it high waisted or sheer?

Anonymous said...

hi! I'd like to ask, for Prue Grey, is the colour true to the photo shown on the website? It's really gorgeous but I'm afraid that it might not suit my skin tone...I have a cool skin tone, do you think it'd suit me? thanks! (=

missypixie said...

anon3: nope, we have yet to choose the winners :)

anon4: thank you!!

anon5: we did it with Unimax but we came up with the colours and concept ourselves, haha.

ade: okay! emailed you!

missypixie said...

anon6: i wear S size and actually, i wear all my skirts high waisted. Haha. Wore it with nude undies and it was perfectly fine!

anon7: oh nooo, i am really bad at this warm/cool skin tone thing, i don't even know what tone I am -.-
its slightly darker in real life but you can always drop by any Kissjane outlets to check out the true colours? They are located at Citylink mall, Bugis Junction and Vivocity :)

Hey can you bring in more shorts like the tweed kinds? I love shorts but its hard to find nice and affordable ones ):

Hi, the eyelet skirt that you are wearing in the pictures, is it from missypixie? As the waist part is different from the missypixie website.

Gina said...

hello! can you manufacture dresses like these in colours oxblood? what can we expect from the upcoming items? do you have any lace items? ^^

Anon8 & 10: it's the MIA eyelet skirt :) I tucked the waistband underneath my bustier top cos it was a bit loose!

Anon9: hmmm, we currently stopped sourcing but if we see any, we will bring them back!

Gina: I think I have a few dresses/tops in that colour coming up! Of cos we have lace for CNY and year end, haha

missypixie said...

LOL! Because I had the same windows layout and also belong to Punggol Residences! So cool! Can I opt for self-collection at our neighbourhood the next time I purchase something from MP? =P

missypixie said...

anon: yup sure! just email me when you next make your purchase :)

It's so hilarious to read your blog on your new house and YC. He's like that since Sec sch. Must think DEEP before execution. -Jingkuang
