All things Sweet.

19 March 2010

I finally got round to watching Alice In Wonderland today. I thought that the movie itself was so-so but I absolutely adored the costume and the visuals- in that respect, Tim Burton did not disappoint! I also had to balance a pair of 3D specs on top of my normal glasses which was interesting. Perhaps it's high time I gave contact lenses another go- but they just don't like me!

I'm not particularly excited about all the pastels that are in stores at the moment. It's not to say that I don't wear pastels, because I do, but seeing ALL the marshmallow shades all together (aka in TopShop) doesn't inspire me and is a bit too sickly. Then again, in a few months time when barely any pastels are in sight, I'll be wishing they were around again.

Still, here is an outfit with a few pastels but less of the the cotton candy tones.
Pastel Layers

Cardi, jeggings, cropped top (Topshop) Grey dress (River Island) Shoes (Jeffrey Campbell via Solestruk) Bow (Internationale) Necklace (Hong Kong)
However, come to think of it, perhaps my aversion is due to eating too many strawberries with melted chocolate. Possibly the best dessert ever- aside from my favourite Black Sesame ice cream which can only be found in Asia. On that note, I am hoping to fly back out to Hong Kong in October with my sister! Excited, fingers crossed it all goes ahead!
Strawberries and Chocolate
So to finish off, this follows on from the last post, I'm still obsessed with all the wig-wearing Japanese girls and I came across this Japanese Wig Video which unfortunately I can't embed, but from what I gather, it's a Japanese daytime program and in this particular segment they stop a bunch of random girls and ask if they're wearing wigs. Yes it's all in Japanese and I can't understand them either but that doesn't take anything away from the video and the pure entertainment!

It's BRILLIANT and you'll laugh at the girls that show the camera just how many wigs they're wearing
(esp the girl at 3:37!). If you ever wondered how on earth the girls have perfect fringes/bangs now you know!

  3. I like the way it ends up looking like a tiered dress from your layering. I know what you mean about them packing all the nude tones together, you miss out of the distinctiveness of each piece and just see a shelf of "blah."

  4. Love the wig vid, makes me feel a lot better to know that most of the peeps in street style pics are not as perfect head to toe.
    It took me about 2 weeks to learn how to put contacts in, was literally in specsavers every day! Definitely persevere, I've never looked back! Love your jeans.

  12. Hi there-love your outfit, perfect colours and tones for Spring! have a good weekend!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm neither a pastels nor a florals fan which makes spring dressing somewhat difficult!!


    ALSO I have the Gordon Ramsey World Kitchen cookbook which has a recipe for black sesame icecream in it, I shall email it to you!!

  15. Great outfit! I love the top you're wearing.

    I just saw the Japanese wig video as well. Wow! I can't believe how good some of those girls looked. I've always been really weary of wigs, but I think I'm tempted to try one now. The girl at 3:37 was amazing. I loved the presenters faces when she kept taking the wigs off.

  20. pleased you got to see the film. i agree the visuals were great but i do think my expectations were ridiculously high! have you looked at lasik? i had it done several years ago & haven't looked back (oh, excuse the pun!)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Such a gorgeous colour combination. Pastels with the purple look great and not too sugary sweet (as to many pastels sometimes can)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I was just looking at the most delicious huge Japanese strawberries yesterday. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Really cute look, darling!
    Love the layered tops!

  28. Pastels..definitely mean spring..but its cold and a bit of snow yet here..oh, the strawberries look so yummy.

    Yeah, we had lots of fun at that 3D movie..my friends and I are planning on going to see Clash of the Titan's in 3D, too.

    ReplyDelete
  29. so pretty. oh, I had to do that with my glasses too..the thing is..with the seasons changing...I can't wear my contacts much. I got the pink eye..last week.

  30. I love you're peachy crop top - very very pretty! I know what you mean about the pastels looking a little sickly all together though: its a little too much isn't it? PS - I think you may have ruined my diet by making me want chocolate strawberries!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Funny enough I just watched it on Saturday what I really wanted to see was The Blind Side with Sandra Bullock but unfortunately it wasn't in that cinema yet. I did the effects it was quite exciting I think if I would've seen it in 2-D I would've liked it less but I am not used to the experience of the cinema I haven't been to the pictures in about a year!

  36. Thanks (I'm not the one who's sick tho ^^).
    Oo I still haven't gotten around to see Alice. But I'm sure the costumes are brilliant !
    Cute top ! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I know what you mean, a bunch of pastel colors is indeed sickening. It's like a big sherbert ice cream collection, haha.

    I love your shirt, so cute. :) Those shoes are fun, too, I like the straps on them.

    ReplyDelete
  38. nice top, it looks cute on you

    ReplyDelete
  39. I really like your take on pastels, definitely better than too much sickly sweet candyfloss! Those strawberries look the perfect amount of sickly sweet though!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I went into Topshop today and you're right, SO MANY pastels aren't great, especially when they're the exact opposite of what you're looking for!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I totally agree that an overload of pastels in the shops looks really uninspiring. Beautiful as it is, I find myself hungry for colour and have lately found myself opting for a lot of corally hues instead.
    Great blog and outfit btw!

  42. you look cute!
    and yes i agree with you about Alice, i thought the story could have been more elaborated but the makeup and costumes did make up for it lol

  43. Oh I LOVE how you wear pastels, just perfect! Still girly with all the pretty draping and ruffles but the purple adds a bit of contrast.

    I totally agree though - the whole pastel thing isn't for me either.

  46. I have no idea what they are saying in the wig video, but it was pretty interesting anyway. I almost want to go get myself some wigs and have all those hairstyles too. lol

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love your outfit and I think it has just the right amount of pastels in it. I love your hair bow too. I still haven't seen Alice in Wonderland but I hope I can sometime. I always find those 3D glassess uncomfortable, sometimes I have to take them off for part of the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love your outfit, just the right amount of pastels!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I wasn't a big fan of Alice in Wonderland either! Lovely post!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I loved that film - yes so it wasn't perfect, but the visuals were fab and I wanted every single one os Alice's outifts... soooooo beautiful - I am coveting that blue!

  56. the hair thing i can totally relate to, a lot of black girls don't wear their real hair out much either. I for one am one of those girls lol though you wont catch me taking it off in the street, mainly cos its attached to my head lol

    ReplyDelete
  57. you are SO cute!! love your tops!

  58. OMG, Winnie! I can't believe those wigs!!! I can't decide if I want to try them or just keep watching more wig vids- hahaha!

    ps- I'm so with you on the pastel thing. It could be that the right pastel shades are hard for me to find (they tend to wash out my asiancajun skin) so I'm a bit biased against the all-pastel look. I love how you incorporated the pastels with the gray. Brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Winnie!!

    I saw Alice too in London is it was amazing, I am crazy about Alice´s dresses...so Stella McCartney to me!!! don't you think?

    All my kisses,

  60. omggg thanks for sharing the video, so interesting! i wish there were subtitles!! gosh imagine putting in all that hair daily! makes me really want to get some extra hair although i don't think it would come in my colour! if i ever go to japan now i will just end up staring at girls thinking wow that's a wig!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I can't cope with contacts either, I just can't get them in/don't feel too comfy wearing them, i get nervy about foreign objects in the eye! >___<

    I had to balance a pair of 3d glasses on my normal ones too, but in scotland we have these crap red ones?!! Nothing like your ones, more like one lense is red and the other is blue, and everyone complained about the fit hehe :P
