This all-white trend is actually from 2012 runway. If you haven't tried once, this is the time! You will simply look stunning. Pick items that are unusual, quirky, or unique such as overall, word sweater, halter-neck dress, cropped tee and one shoulder top, You may also play with texture, like on scalloped skirt and lace shorts, as well as material complexity, namely beads, furs, snake skin, leather and glass.
Are you ready for a new month? ;)
Childhood is a noteworthy and memorable time in everybody's life. It is full of memories so that it is to some extent shapes the persons we are today. We remember moments when we were playing around in the backyards, jumping on the beds, climbing the trees, running around the house and cycling with friends to places only we knew. It was full of laugh, happiness and freedom. Sometimes, like adults, we were worried and feared. Instead of about losing job or relationship break up, it was about our moms kept our candies, falling from our bicycles and our friends got stickers more than us. When we grew up, then we realize how good it was. Let’s bring our childhood memories back to reality!
These illustrations are our second series of Hueynie's project, that as we explained before, to give you a glimpse of fashion design. As you may also notice in other fashion illustrations, the postures more often than not are always thin and tall as the heights are 9-10 times of the heads. We reckon this follows models' standard height, which is more or less 175 cm (5'9''). One of our favorite illustrators is Sabine Pieper, you can find her work here. Some illustrators, such as Kelly Smith, draw it too real until difficult to be distinct from photograph. On the contrary, Garance dore sketches are rather simple and clean. Different from technical drawing, there is no real standards in fashion illustration, you can even use bunny instead of human as your model like Fifi Lapin. You can see more from the experts in thefashionillustrator.com.

Yesterday was my little sister's 23rd birthday. She is bright at heart and brain. Even though neon has not been her choice of colors, as she has all the 'qualifications' that I mentioned plus a cheerful and arty personality, I think she must look wonderful in neon colors combined with black geometric stripes. Oopps, the loafers are my favourite, LOL, the last time I want to buy a pair of loafers, she disagreed with me as she is more of heels-person and more feminine compared to me when it comes to fashion. I just reckon that loafers are the most stylish and easy-to-pair flats at the moment.
Happy birthday my not-so-little-anymore sister! Let your shine be bright always like a star! Love you bunch xoxo
Lunch time! Anyone agree with us that lunch is one of happy moments in a day? We love the facts that having healthy lunch is healthier than skipping it. Aussie people's habit of having salad for lunch is amazing and worth trying as meat and vegetables makes us awake and refresh instead of making us sleepy as meat is easier to be digested when it is consumed with vegetables rather than with rice or potatoes.
Today we are using pastel color palette which is in trend if you are now in Spring-Summer season or your country's fashion direction is following other cities that are now in Spring-Summer, such as Paris and Milan. But there is no right or wrong in fashion, so even if you are in autumn you still can use pastel as it is also soothing colors.
Get bored with ordinary stripes? Try this vertical stripes on! It suites really well for both formal and casual occasions and is magnificent when paired with bright colors. Have a good week!
Acai or purple is another pantone color for fall 2013. Today we decided to use it on a skater skirt, a so much loved youthful piece. A pretty easy way to pair is teaming it with two basic staples, a black blazer on a black tank. A long body blazer gives a bit of slimming effect to your hip to balance the flares of the skirt. As the clothes are in dark colors, metallic mirror pumps will be a good choice to add some shine on your outfit. Lastly, finish it with a bright color satin scarve, select one that has purple and/or black color as part of combination. Have a good week!
It's the fourth month of 2013, time flies.. Don't you think so? How was your first four months? We are quite happy with how 'far' whattowearwith has been going. Writing a blog, as same as reaching your goals, does require commitment, continuous research and a lot of effort. There were times where it seemed difficult to find new ideas or just to find spare time between our studying and working activities.
Anyway, after 'March for March', we decided to have 'Hello April' for this month topic. Curious what's behind the acronym? haha.. Plaid is one of them. If you have any suggestion, simply leave a comment.
For this first post, we experimented with an old version of mickey mouse. It is then paired with a skirt in plaid pattern which is everywhere in fall-winter 2013 fashion weeks, and teamed up with the in-trend black duffle bag and circle eye-glasses. To get it spiced up, a dash of rosie red color which is so associated with Mickey Mouse, is given on the shoes, the eyeglasses and the skirt.
Hope you enjoy your Easter break.
Did you notice that our last month topics were M.A.R.C.H in acronym?
