A super simple and easy DIY for you all! After seeing Jenn from clothesencounters and Zoe from fashiononymous wearing their off shoulder stripey crop top from nastygal, I really wanted one too because they're just so flattering, but as a girl who prefers to go to charity shops rather than splashing a lot of money to buy it from high street stores, I decided to make my own cheap and lazy version of it.
I adore this top and I seriously can't wait to wear it with my dungarees that I have made from a couple of years ago, finally the long awaited dungarees are the spotlight of the season!

It has been a while since my last outfit post! So I'm back now with an outfit that I absolutely adore and would actually wear it every single day (if only it's hygienic to do so). Anyway, I spent this Saturday hanging out with my friends because I needed to take photos of them for my media coursework (making a music magazine), hence why there is a rather small beginners guitar in the photos, and unfortunately none of us are musically talented to play the guitar so they all had to suffer from listening to my random strumming harmonized with my deadly vocal as we stroll through the forest.
Oh and these amazing photos are taken by Sophie from
Let's begin with tops, you must be thinking "is Mannie crazy for including sweaters for spring?!", well actually, I think spring is still a little bit chilly so medium thick sweaters are perfect for the spring! Floral sweaters are the most suitable since it's spring, right? I really like the two t-shirts because both have such cool print on them, especially the cat one, nothing can be more adorable!!
I'm always a big fan of flatforms and wedges, it adds perfection to my unforgiving height. The tie-up wedges has the princess-y look (if that's even a word), or I guess more like a ballerina, anyhow, girly is the word to sum up those wedges. Black may be the best colour choice for shoes since it pretty much goes with anything, but so do the nude wedges!! Winter has been rather cold and dull, so nothing is better than bringing out a pair of red ankle boots for the spring to add a bit of colour.
Any cat lovers would absolutely adore these hats, they're just so cute! I've never been a big fan of beret because they're so french! (Not that being French is anything bad, just thought it is a cliché thing.) I have always had a love for bowler hats, although I am not exactly confident on wearing them because they don't seem to suit my face shape that well, but I would definitely love to invest in the kitty ears bowler hat since it's super super super super cute!!

This is the second pair of shoes that is out of my comfort zone since there is a layer of mesh which is rather... adventurous I must say. The other pair being my black flatforms that I adore!
I really enjoy the cork design on the shoes which gives it a really nice touch to the normal black flatforms, and I love how the mesh panel makes them extraordinary yet they are still perfect to be worn with so many outfits!
I wore these shoes for the first time when I went out for 12 hours, they're very comfortable to walk in. Since they're low ankle shoes, the edges was quite stiff at first and did bash against my ankles as I walk throughout the day. However, that only happened to me on the first day of wearing it , the problem didn't occur anymore afterward. I can definitely tell that I will be wearing these flatforms a lot from now on!! www.yeswalker.com
I will be wearing pairing these shoes for my upcoming video - Winter fashion lookbook 2012, look forward to it :)
I've been on a skirts making frenzy! I didn't realise I have so much fabric that I've bought over the past years that I need to use, so what's better than to make them into pretty skirts that'll make me feel all cute and girly! The first two photos are circle/skater skirts and the last photo is an inverted pleat skirt (I did film the process but it will take me forever to edit the video) made with some alluring curtain-like fabric I found at the new fabric store.
Anyway, circle skirts are so versatile as they can easily be dressed up or down. Tartan is in for this season so I decided to make circle skirt with that pattern which looks so beautiful when I (try to) spin gracefully. So, if you would like to make one, here's a video on how to make it, it's pretty easy, I promise! Just a little maths is involved. :)
