be strong

It is starting to get old how I would apologise everytime I start a blog post
for disappearing for too long and neglecting this blog,
so now that's out of the way, let's move on, shall we?
Finally went to see the doctor yesterday for this nagging pain in my knee
since I fell down in office 3 weeks ago.
(slipped on a random envelope, but don't ask.
Offices are generally hazardous places for me)
Turns out that I probably strained my ligament and it would take 2 months to get better.
Then received another bad news that I can't do anything about
except to pray for things to get better.
Be strong babe.

Celebrated a few November babies birthdays this month
and it is funny how birthday celebrations have toned down to
just a good dinner and really good company.
I envy those people who can plan a Running Man themed race,
complete with nametags for ripping.
I call that the power of youth.
We did step out of our comfort zone and tried playing one of those escape room games,
where basically you are given an hour to enter a locked room with your friends,
gather clues, solve puzzles and break out of the room within the time limit.
It may sound stupid but we all loved it.
It is also a good testament that only good friends can do this
because honestly, everyone was shouting at everyone else but no one really minds. Haha.
In case you were curious, I went to Xcape at Purvis Street
and we all can't wait to go back to try the other rooms :)
It is advisable to go in a bigger group though because they have minimum group size per room
and if you have just 4 pax, they might throw you with another group.
That might be very awkward because then you have to be nice and polite,
and no one wins this being nice and polite. Haha.

Birthday presents also got weirder with this alpaca for alpacabecca (what a mouthful)

Meet Jessica Alpa(ca), as named by Sharms.
We have no group shot of us that day because in every single photo,
Jessica managed to look better than all of us put together. Sighs.

I also haven't been really dressing up because the weather is too hot for November
and we were busy doing manual labour at the OC booth
(which was a great success! thank you if you ever dropped by!)
and it is tough to look pretty when you have to lug stocks about.

bought this pretty printed dress cos I thought it would be perfect for lazy days.
I just checked my wardrobe and i realised almost all my dresses/rompers are printed,
my tops are mostly striped and I have tons of white shirts.
I like to think I am consistent.

I would say this is a very 'me' outfit cos its super girly
and it has all the stuff that I like.
Organza poufy skirt, ticked.
Eyelet corset, ticked.
Nude pumps, ticked.

Occasionally, I like to pretend I am something different.
I don't know if a tux white vest and manly loafers are enough, but I like to think they are.

finally hunted down my nude Mary-Janes!
Paired my denim shirt with another of my many skater skirts
because I don't think denim means you can't make it look girly.

bought a structured box top recently in black because I am one of those strange people
who do not have a lot of black clothes.
It is just begging to be paired with some bold colours and cobalt blue is always good.

and my very girly outfit of a lace romper, floral blazer and mary-janes.
I dress according to themes.
It makes dressing up less boring :)
I usually post outfit shots on my Instagram (@passionade)
(plus one or two surprise bunny pics)
and you can follow MP's official insta at @shopmissypixie for updates too!

I have my eyes set on this full midi skirt in forest and a split sleeve chiffon top
from this Sunday's collection that are gorgeous in real life.

the full preview is on our Facebook page so hop over to see the other designs!

much love,

Where did you get the nude flats from?

hey there, is the midi to be launched stretchy? because the models are wearing it extremely highwaisted in the preview pictures! so high it looks a little weird, for the lack of a better word.

Where's the b&w printed dress from? love your style kelly. May i know if the upcoming floral shorts is able to fit a uk8? ^^

oh no! here's wishing you a speedy recovery. take care!

missypixie said...

anon1: hmm which one? the one with the yellow skirt or the one with the denim shirt? if its the former, its from Ferragamo and the latter is from Zara!

anon2: nope, not very stretchy, the waist measurements are fixed! its not extremely highwaisted but it needs to sit on your waist because that is where its most flattering :)

missypixie said...

anon3: thank you! that dress is from my supplier but it was the last piece so we didn't manage to bring it in to sell :( if you are talking about the floral denim shorts, yes it can!

anon4: thank you for the concern :)

Hi Dear,
I hope everything is fine for you! :)
Also, i would like to suggest if MP can sell more maxi dress & basic tops too?

Also, I went to Momma Kong and tried it after reading ur review and i am glad that it has been an awesome experience there as the staffs were extremely helpful & friendly!

Best place to dine in (and certainly will be back there again!!)

Have a good rest :)

Hello! The floral blazer number from Zara is gorgeous, was it a recent buy from their stores? Or a buy from a longtime back?

hi when you wear denim shirt with the skirt, do you get bulges on your skirt? do you tuck all the way in or pull out some. haha i hope you know what i mean

missypixie said...

hello! as the skirt is flared, you can't really see the bulges? haha. I tuck it all the way in and pull out some for comfort :)

Ivy said...

missypixie said...
