shake it up

Popping in for a quick update before my ootds get super outdated.
Started March with more good food cos it was my dad's birthday
then attempted to go on a semi juice cleanse the following week
by replacing a meal daily with a glass of green juice instead.

I tried to make it as green as I can, approx 70% vegetables and 30% fruits
so it is at least tasty.
(randomly, I had a mouthful of pure spinach juice and it was..HORRID)
Learnt that I can't juice wheatgrass with my juicer
(all the better for the bunnies cos it became their treat)
and that green juice really isn't that bad.
I didn't monitor to see if I lost weight but I fell off the wagon a few times
(more like tumbled off, rolled a few km and lost my way back
cos I had fried chicken and K-BBQ in between. Oops)
and I felt like punching people and dreamt of ramen at night.
Doubt I am much of a diet person. :(
Will try again next time when I remove temptation (namely, YC & his Popeyes's delivery)

outfit for dad's bday dinner.
I tried to keep up with the mood and chose something bright.

then it was back to work Tuesday and I felt like something romantic.
Do you have days when you woke up and felt like dressing in a certain way?
I sometimes wake up and feel like doing a super girly outfit
and there are days when I want to man-up my outfit with loafers and blazers.

cheated as usual and used a dress as a top.
It is my favourite way to get milage out of my bodycon dresses cos I seldom wear them as it is
and I won't have to worry about them riding up or being too short :)

had a rare day to dress up in slightly formal way cos we had business meetings back to back
and I finally finally can bring my blazers out to play.
It was hot but I am known to suffer for fashion so I will deal with it.
Someone asked me about this v-neck tee I was wearing but I got it from Sportsgirl a few years back.
However, brought something really similar in for MP next week
and I think it has the right 'slouch' factor.
Look out for that!

brunch date with the girls and I realised in a group setting,
more often than not, I will always revert back to my ultra girly mode.
Took my old tulle skirt out cos it never fails to make me feel pretty :)

had yums desserts at Plain Vanilla.
I only had the Hazelnut cupcake so don't judge!
Although a bite of the Peanut Butter Brownie was pretty good too. Heh.

Coincidentally found myself in almost the same exact colour combi as the week before.
I don't really wear pastels cos of my skin colour :(
It kinda washes me out. But I find rose blush the only soft colour to be flattering on me
so perhaps that is why I only have pastel apparels in this colour.

and my latest outfit - a denim shirt to man-up my white midi.
I never realised how versatile a denim shirt is til I got my first one last year.
Always thought it was too andro and not my style but I find it surprisingly easy to match,
especially with any white bottom.
Also, shirts and midi skirts are fast becoming my new favourite combi.
You would know when you see the styling for MP's next few collections. Haha.

Speaking of which, I don't know if anyone noticed but we are tweaking MP's style a little
since post-CNY collection.
We are slightly less girly and more fashion-forwards with items pantsuits, pleather skirts,
cut-out printed dresses and more coming up.
I feel like it is a reflection of our own style because both me and Sharms have grown up
and are now attracted to a wider range of stuff and different mix of style.
Of course we still have our usual lady-like items like midi skirts and printed blousons
but do drop me a comment if you like/dislike the way we are heading
and if there are any stuff you would like to see more on our site,
accessories or shoes perhaps?

Lastly, not to be blatantly advertising
but I really really like our upcoming collection this Sunday.
The preview is up HERE

and I seldom do this but i already kept 2 colours of the LANA top
(and really tempted to keep the third one as well. UGH)

the HILARY midi skirt, which by the way, I am not going to lie,
is going to be pricey BUT I swear it is worth every penny
because the material is wonderfully good and I love the way it fits and flares.

MANDY eyelet dropwaist dress is also really pretty in real life.
I have way too many dropwaist dresses so I am going to give this a miss
but look at the hem! So cute!

an example of what I mean by my style is evolving. Ha.

Zara has an almost identical one that is retailing at $59.90
that I filed away in my KIV to buy category
so can you imagine how happy I was when I found this for MP?!
-inserts creepy grin face-

There is also a denim shirt that is more fitted so it is good
if you want to tuck it into bottoms and another pleather floral tank
that I think would look wonderful tucked into a black maxi skirt.
Sighs. Too many stuff to buy for self.
I need to try not to overdose on bottoms
cos I have been buying nothing but bottoms the past month. eeks.
Randomly, ending on an awkward note cos I ran out of stuff to blog about,
I am leaving you with two ways one can wear a printed black white midi skirt.

Don't they just look gorgeous? :)

much love,

Hello Kelly,

this is completely random but is your flare skirt from korea exactly like this?

Kat said...

Does the ANABEL slit dress comes in sizes? What did you keep from the coming collection? Cheers!

missypixie said...

anon: hello! hmm, i dont think so, mine doesn't come with the two panels in front :)

Kat: we only carry it in one size :) I kept RHEA tee and SIMONE flare pants! The pants are really gorgeous in real life!

Hi, Where are both white midis from? Also, for the Simone Flare Pants, is the material thick and able to hide vpl (seamless)?

missypixie said...

anon: hello! I only see one white midi and i got it from Korea :) Simone isn't very thick, it is polyester cotton, or normal pants material? It isn't very tight at my butt so I don't need special undergarments but if you are worried, seamless ones should do fine!

Hi Kelly!

I just wanted to say that I'm a huge fan of Missypixie and I really look forward to more Willow items since the material is always so good. Previously when you guys had the knotted dresses and skirts it was awesome (: It'll be great if you guys could make more Willow apparel since nowadays I see fewer willow items for launches (but of course those are still nice too!)

Hello Kelly,

May i check with you how much you paid for your chanel necklace?

anon: thank you for your feedback! We are still manufacturing WILLOW items, just that the factories just reopened after the CNY long break and the designs are still in the midst of being produced :)

VV: got the necklace for approx SGD400 and shoes are from MITJU!
