Nice hair whatever!

This photo is kinda badly taken and it doesn't show my hair. But I swear, I had a super nice hair that day! (And an effortless one!)

See! And all I did was only tying up a bunch and twist a little.
  
The perfect hairstyle for a lazy person like me. And the hair clip with lots of golden stars from Bornpretty Store - so much bonus points added! Now it seems like I really made a great effort to style my hair. I don't care even if this is considered cheating. Hehehe!

 
By all means, try this style for office too! It's gonna add so much smiles to your day! ♥

And oh oh oh, if you remembered my post from awhile ago, my party styling didn't go as planned, but it still turned out pretty well overall! My friends were quite impressed by my cute shades (also from Bornpretty Store)♥♥

And that's the way the cookie crumbles.

Going to a dinner or party and have no time for your hair? Just twist a bunch and clip! 5 seconds and you're ready to go!
 
Of course you can clip it on anywhere on your head or do whatever hairstyle you like. 

In fact today's our company's Dinner & Dance (D&D), and I might just use this hair clip together with a 70's style outfit and a more intricate hair (if I ever do succeed). By the way tonight's D&D theme is "Saturday Night Fever"...?????????????????????????????????? I've no fudging idea! Just hoping my styling will be..to the point?!

Scissorshair

Edward has scissors for hands.
I'm not losing out either. There's one on my hair! And antique one! Like what Sweeny Todd might possibly used.
 
Although it's tiny compared to my mum's vintage scissors, it's big enough to get some attention. There's no need to wear any other accessories as this piece is already detailed enough. Choose from gold or silver.
Unlike bobby pins, the clip clamps down hair quite well, and there is no need to keep fixing my hair. Bobby pins can be especially unsightly when used on light coloured hair. Therefore, this scissors clip works not only as a cute hair deco, but also like a fancy 18th century security guard who keeps stray hair in order! No more ugly bobby pins!
Actually I kind of regretted not getting a pair, because two are better than one!

Black x Purple

I was looking for accessories with natural stones all over physical shops and all over the internet. Then guess what, the usual, trusty Born Pretty Store did not disappoint at all! They even had both colours I was looking - milky white and purple! Also, there was a really kawaii set of four punk style rings which really caught my eyes. Ended up getting the rings set and a purple natural stone ring and feeling really accomplished!

These 2 different set of rings simply complimented each other so well I could cry!



For a waaaaaaaaay too reasonable price, everything was so beautifully made. There was even a clear stone (far left) for the set of four rings!

The purple crystal (far right) which had a very even and soft tone, was nicely bounded onto the ring. Initially I thought the ring was running a little huge for my bony fingers, and then I realised it is adjustable! Ahhh salvation.

Kyawanos x Sherry London x The Aisle Bridal

Wedding photos finally received end-November 2015, just in time for our wedding in end-December! Here's one of five sets we've shot, a special collaboration with Sherry London!

結婚式の前撮り写真は、2015å¹´12月の披露宴の直前に届き、間に合った♪ 合計5セットを撮影したが、ここでSherry Londonシェリー・ロンドンとのスペシャル・コラボをお見せしちゃう!!!

Recap: Sherry London, is an online boutique based in London, specialising in bridesmaid dresses, and dresses for special and formal occasions. Dresses are custom made to fit and international shipping available for most countries. Sherry London's collection is huge, so there's bound to be something you like!
 
It was the first time I even attempted wearing an elegant dress (I just don't look good!) Fortunately there were so many beautiful items at SherryLondon's, meaning, there's definitely something for me. It took awhile to shortlist one from their huge collection, and then I decided, THIS↓↓↓(Link)

 
【シェリー・ロンドンとは?】
イギリス・ロンドン発オンラインブティック「シェリー・ロンドン」→手作りパーティードレス、ブライズメイドドレスなのエレガント/ フォーマル系ドレスのオンライン専門店。国際発送あり!コレクションがとにかく膨大で、かわいいものがいっぱい♪ 前撮りの直前、シェリー・ロンドンからアプローチがあったので、スタジオにお願いし、ショートドレスも撮影 してもらったよん! 

Remember this?
覚えてる?このコーデ。
 
Turned out like this! *applause*
こうなったよ!

If you are wondering where the set was shot, it's Changi Boardwalk (Changi Beach, near Changi Beach Club), recommended by our nice driver uncle.

ロケの場所はチャンギポイント・ボードウォーク(チャンギビーチ/チャンギビーチクラブの近く)!しかも、選んでくれたのがうちらのやさしいドライバーさんだった。w


Most of the staff and guests who saw the photos thought the dress and simple white suit were absolutely appropriate for our evening setting. As the dress I was wearing was already very detailed and elaborate, it was better to keep hair styling and accessories to the minimal.

背景と衣装がうまく合ってて、スタジオのスタッフもうちらもゲストからも大絶賛!本当うれしい!!
ドレスは十分ディテールだから、シンプルなヘアースタイル+小さいチョーカーもうしくはネックレスで◎


ドレス・Dress: Sherry London (Link) / UK10 or M 着用
クリスタルチョーカー・Crystal choker: Makeup artist's own メークさん私物
シューズ・Shoes: Fig & Viper




On the wedding day in end-December, it was so much more busy than I expected. I didn't have an opportunity to wear 2 sets of dresses, inclusive of one of my own rented Chinese tea dress and the featured Sherry London's dress. I did bring it with me though in case I had any opportunity...my husband even made sure that we brought it along! (I swear it was in my suitcase for the whole 60 hours we were at our event place/hotel!)

Although I wasn't able to wear your dress in person on that day, to my surprise, quite a lot of people asked "where's the burgundy/red dress?" "where did you get it?" "are you wearing it later?" when they saw my album displayed at the hotel. Thanks to Sherry London, there were so much compliments!

披露宴当日のランチタイムにもドレス着るつもりだったけど、残念なのことで、当日想像よりいろいろ準備が忙しくて、ランチを食べるも時間なかった。結局ド レスを着ることはなかったが、ゲストたちからは「あれぇ?赤い・バーガンディーのショートドレスは?それも今日着るの?どこで買ったの?かわいいよ!」みた いな質問が多かったよ。コラボが大成功ってワケかな?w



I lost a bit of weight since July 2015 till now, so I'll ask my mum to tailor it smaller, in order to wear it again to  a "Great Gatsby" theme party or formal occasions - just add on more glam accessories!

前撮り~2016å¹´1月現在の間に、少し痩せたので、ドレスがちょっとゆるくなっちゃった。これからは、うちのお母さんに頼んで、小さくしてもらえ、別のイベントに使いたいと思いまーすぅ!♪ 豪華なアクセを付けたら、グレート・ギャツビーのテーマーパーティーなどゴージャスなとこでまだまだ活躍できそう!可能性がいっぱいな一着!♥ 
Not this Gatsby.
このギャツビーちゃいます。

This GATSBY.
これ、これ。
On this note, cheers to Sherry London, The Aisle Bridal studio staff, Make-up artist Li Shi, and team BFFs for making my wedding day a success! Can't thank you guys more!!

Wedding Prep Sneak Peek ②

Sorry for the delay, here's the rest of the sneak peek! It was a really busy day at the studio and outside and hence here's the only photos I have for now.

Started make-up early morning for studio shots. I've got this pre-conception that studio make-up is more dramatic than normal make-up, and I thought I would be unrecognisable and looking much older. Turned out our make-up artist was so good, she reconstructed my face to a studio + toned down version of my usual make-up! Hats off to that!! She had also noticed from my own make-up that I dab lots of pink cheek powder directly under my eyes and she helped me do it too! I was soooooooo happy!!
Didn't really use any accessories to go with the gown, except for a few crystal ear studs and my prized possession - the glass Pegasus necklace from Bimba & Lola. 

The make-up artist gave me a cat hair as requested. She said this is the first time she's doing a non-bridal hair for a bridal shoot.



Got to see some actual previews in November and they turned out really pretty! For not-so-photogenic like us at least, we could recognise ourselves! This is thanks to our powerful make-up artist x cameraman!

Wedding Prep Sneak Peek 結婚式・披露宴の準備!! ①

Last-last week we did a pre-wedding photo shoot at The Aisle Bridal, a studio near my place. Prior to that, I was approached by an online boutique Sherry London for a collaboration. I thought my pre-wedding shoot would be the perfect occasion to feature a piece of their fine collection. As we were all mad-busy on the shooting day, there weren't enough opportunities to do a proper "Making of".
A mini "Making of" will be featured in my next post. Meanwhile, fred not, there's still quite a lot to see! While the actual photos in my wedding gowns and the dress are being retouched and developed by the cameraman right this moment, I've created follow-up photos of my choice made at Sherry London's.

Sherry London is an online boutique based in London, UK. They specialise in bridesmaid dresses, and dresses for special occasions. Making a choice was a difficult one because it's the first time I ever ordered an elaborate dress online. Or rather, it's the first time I ever attempt wearing something this elegant. I'm just very afraid I don't look good in such dresses. Lucky for me, there are just too many beautiful items at the store, which means there's definitely something for me somewhere. It took me two hours to shortlist a few from their huge collection, then finally decide on one. I was like, OK IT HAS TO BE THIS↓↓↓(Link)

先々週、シンガポールのザ・アイル・ブライダル(The Aisle Bridal)で結婚式の前撮りしてきた。
前撮りの直前、イギリス・ロンドンのオンラインブティック「シェリー・ロンドン」からアプローチがあったので、スタジオにお願いし、ショートドレスも撮影してもらったよん!  æ®‹å¿µãªãŒã‚‰æœ¬å½“忙しかったのでこの1着のメイキングはなかった。でもでも、自宅で追加で撮影したよん!

オンラインブティックでパーティードレス頼むのは今回初めて。そもそも、パーティードレスを着たこともなかった。きっと似合わないと思ったから。シェリーの膨大なコレクションを2時間ぐらいじーーーーっくり見て、頼んだのはショートパーティードレス!これならいけそうじゃん!
頼んでからの2週間が経って・・・
HERE IT COMES HERE IT COMES!!! Waaaaaaaait a minute. Something's not right...THE CRYSTALS ARE IN A DIFFERENT COLOUR! But heck, it's gonna look a lot more impressive and more bridal-ish compared to the image's black crystals. Anyway I'm so happy!

来た!!!けど、あれ?!どこかに違和感があって・・・ビジューの色はイメージ写真とちょっと違うwww まあ、こっちのほうがインパクトがあってブライダルっぽくて好きかも♪ 本番撮影はこんな感じだったが、自宅用だけなのでロック風にアレンジしてみた。 ブライダルだけじゃなく、会社/学校/友達のウェディングパーティーなのでも着ていけるおすすめなコーデ!レースとビジューのディテールで十分インパクトあるから、ヘアスタイル、アクセ、靴はできるだけシンプルにキープ。
What you see above is my styling for the actual photo shoot. Because the dress already has lots of glamourous details, it's best to keep the the hairstyle, accessories and shoes to the simplest. Theme - "Don't kill off the pwetty crystals!" As for my follow-up photo shoot today, I did a rock look. This look should be suitable for most social occasions.

Perhaps the dress was made for a western audience in mind, the length was longer than what I expected and it covered my knees. To make up for that, I've put on a pair of stilts. Check out the back of the dress as well, saturated with crystals.
ちょっことのポニーテールも◎。
Side swept / pony tails are highly recommended.
たぶん、ドレスは欧米用だから、チュールの部分はイメージより長くて、ひざをカバーしてしまった。 ヒールの高い靴で足で足を長く見せた。 後ろもビジューギッシリ♪
このドレスは重そうに見えるが、見た目よりずっと軽かった!一人でもスイスイと着れちゃうよ。いい布が使われてるから熱くも寒くもならない。写真を見るだけじゃ分からない機能付だよ!→→なんと、ブラジャー内蔵www こいうのは以外と助かる!(念のためにヌーブラも準備したほうがいいと思うけどね)

The dress isn't as heavy as it looks. It's quite light-weight so I could put in on effortlessly. The material used was of good quality and I wasn't feeling too hot or cold in it. One extra thing about the dress which you are unable to see here is...it has a helpful built-in bra top! How nice would it be if all other brands' dresses have the same function too!

サイズは、小柄用からプラスサイズまでちゃんと対応してるし、カスタムサイズも可能なので、チャンスがあったら、是非シェリーでゲットしてみてね。私の場合は、S/Mの中間のUK10を注文した。注文してからすぐ作ってくれたよ。
For size, I'm wearing an in-between of S/M (UK10). The store caters from XS to Plus Sizes. Customisation is possible with a small fee. The store makes your dress after you place your order. Staff from the store are very pleasant and friendly too! The store ships to almost everywhere on Earth so please take a look if you're interested! (Link) Next up I'd be sharing my tiny "Making of" collection. Come back again soon!

スタッフはとてもやさしくて、最後まで丁寧に対応してくれた。世界のどこまでも発送するよ。まずシェリー・ロンドンのサイトをチェック!

僅かしか記録できなかったが、次の記事ははザ・アイル・ブライダルでの撮影風景だよ!またブログをチェックしに来てね!よろしく!!♪
