Christopher day!

As we all know, today was Christopher Kane day (or Christmas Day as I almost typed!) The 39 piece collection hit the Topshop website and stores around the country were allocated their selection. Some pieces online sold out almost instantly which include most of the mirror-eyelet dresses. I took my chance and did not set my alarm for 6am and instead wandered into my local Topshop at 4pm after work. I was surprised at how little my Topshop had stocked and the nude skater dress which I really wanted to try on was not to be seen. Having said that, it's not on the Topshop website either so do any of you know if it was online at all today?

I tried on the one shouldered lace dress which was very lovely but realised I wouldn't get the wear out of it. It's a gorgeous, unique dress and a little more transparent than I realised as parts of it was mesh. Going by the prices, I wanted to buy something that was a little more versatile. If I had the money then I would definitely have taken this home with me to save for a special occasion! My sister approves of this pic and it hurts a little to look at what I walked away from!
So onwards to the tees that er...kind of scream Christopher Kane. After all, his Gorilla dresses are iconic. I loved the tee...
But I adored the dress! ...and so I bought it and it came home with me.
It goes perfectly with my H&M vest. I wear this thing to death as you've probably noticed! The dress is a little longer on me as I am so petite but it still works.
Faux vest (H&M) Shoes (KG) Patent Bow (UO)
A last thing before I go...an update on my nails!
Ring (V&A gift shop) 031 (Kesalan Patharan), Beiged Bliss (MAC)
I received the Kesalan Patharan glitter polish from my aunt a few years ago. It's a Japanese brand and I'm really into Japanese make up at the moment. I don't wear a whole heap of make up these days but I found my perfect foundation from RMK It's perfect for Chinese/Korean etc skin. It also helps that me and Ting (the SA) who was wearing a giant satin hair bow bonded over our mutual love for Vivi magazine!

  21. Winnie, your outfit looks fabulous. I'm so happy you got the top you wanted and you styled your outfit very well. And the dress also looks amazing on you. Sounds like everyone is going crazy over the Christopher Kane collection. Hope you get your hands on the skater nude dress. Would love to see it on you. Have yourself a good weekend, Winnie.

  22. I was considering that black dress too but I decided I wasn't really into the one shoulder asymmetric thing, i'd probably only have been buying it because it was Chris Kane. But you definitely made the right decision with the croc dress. It looks great on you!
    I didn't see the cream dress on the website yesterday either so maybe they haven't released it yet, but then it did seem like everything else was released yesterday. Its a mystery!

  23. Love the crocodile Kane dress. The one shouldered lacey one is amazing as well, I hate how expensive Topshop is sometimes!

  24. That shirt is awesome! I can get over it :D

    Glad you found a good makeup brand! My mother always had trouble finding shades for Asian skin tone as well. I really don't wear foundations... I find it clogs my pores pretty bad :(

  37. such a beautiful dress!
    i love RMK ...at the moment i'm using covermark (another japanese brand) for coverup but i read a feature about it in a magazine so i am actually thinking of switching. for japanese cosmetics, i also like ettusais and canmake.
    also, i am crazy about anna sui's nail polish. the photo of that really pretty glitter polish reminded me heheh :)
