Melissa x Karl Lagerfeld : Ice cream pumps

hello hello

I've been writing this post for a while now but just can't quite seem to completely finish it but I've been reinspired and thought, this would be the perfect post to dedicate to my close friend Wengie! :P I'm sure when she sees this, she'll know why:) 
My obsession since forever ago has always been food inspired/looking anything, hence the title [ Tammy's fashion nibbles]

I've always been a fan of the ever comfy Melissa jelly flats so you can imagine my excitement when I saw these ice cream pumps! 
What makes these delicious pumps ten times sweeter you ask? It is a collaboration between Karl Lagerfeld + Melissa. I know right. Take a moment to gasp! Have always been a fan of Lagerfeld, I will always have so much love and respect for the creativity, life, he brought into the house of Chanel. Will always cherish my reissue 2.55.<3
Seriously, check out these pumps, I am ABSOLUTELY in love with them and have been lusting over them ever since I laid eyes on them! NEED. I'm definitely getting a pair when they are officially launched in Singapore. I already know I want this color! <3 Pretty much just need themn to save my size and I'm rushing down to pay haha

 
The face of the campaign is Cara Delevingne! I know.. can it seriously get any better?!
The ice cream pumps are avaliable in various colors and variation of glitter color ice cream cones! Check them out!

Event : Nicholas Kirkwood Event On Peddar Singapore

**information provided by On Pedder official press release. Personal thoughts are mine:) Sections from the press release are "quoted", Pictures provided by On Pedder official press release and collaged by me

hello hello

A few days ago [June 19,2013], I had the privilege of attending the exclusive Nicholas Kirkwood autumn/winter 2013 collection preview hosted by On Pedder Singapore.
If you live in Singapore too, you would probably remember how intense the haze got on that night but I knew this was an event not to miss! I rushed down to On Pedder and woah did I make the right decision! I would've never forgiven myself if I had missed this event!

A little bit about the shoe extraordinaire
[Nicholas Kirkwood]
"Nicholas Kirkwood launched his debut collection in Spring 2005 to challenge the conventions of woman's luxury footwear. Beyond his label, Nicholas has worked alongside established and emerging brands to create shoes for their runway shoes, such as Fendi, Erdem and Peter Pilotto"
The Autumn Winter 2013 collection features bold architectural lines; "taking a subtle reference from the wave inspired curves of Spring Summer 2013 collection to form defined arches." This collection was no exception to his love of witty and quirky embellishments such as "mesh, fur and sheer frill; all which help execute this playfully decadent collection perfectly!"

Here are some of my favorites!

It was amazing seeing the collection up close and personal, they were absolutely exquisite.
I loved that the collection was a mixture of elements. I could see a variety of women wear this collection, a fun bold girl heading to a 70s party could be seen rocking the low triangle heel pump in black and white chevron printed suede with a touch of the beautiful gold chrome heel; alternatively, a woman looking for a more subtle but powerful pair of statement heels could go for the ever feminine elegant laced high heel pumps with a contrasted strong bold textured gold heel.

If I had to pick my absolute favorite pair, it would most definitely have to be this pair!
I was chatting with Nicholas  about how in love with them I was and that I would have totally worn them to the Great Gatsby Tiffany premiere I attended a few weeks ago if I had seen them then! I was in LOVEEE with everything about this pair of shoes! How elegant and sophisticated are the baby pearls around the rim of the shoes? It would glam up any little black dress! The other thing I adored about this design was the gold chrome heel, I thought it was extremely chic, classy yet ever so powerful; it definitely makes a statement!  Even though I love wearing high heels because I'm a shorty! I definitely still gravitate towards flats so this pair of low heel is the perfect marriage combining my two favorite things! A hybrid of a high heel and flats. love love love!

Now, I've got to re-emphasize that even though pictures are amazing, you've got to see them in real life to fully experience how exquisite and beautiful these shoes are! Try them on if you get a chance and I'm sure you'll fall in love with them as much as I have! <3

Photo opp time! :) On that note.. I apologize for the delay of the Peter Pilotto post too! I've just been so busy! good busy though!<3 But how cool huh? Meeting Peter Pilotto and now Nicholas Kirkwood yay! 2013 rocks!

It was such an honor meeting Nicholas after having been such a fan of his designs in my college years. Who knows! maybe one day I could be collaborating with him for my runway collection shoes;) A girl can dream!

Since this is my first post ( most definitely won't be my last) about my favorite place to shop for shoes, I thought I would give On Pedder a little shout out <3 For as long as I could remember, I spend many Sundays at On Pedder with Mom! From the young age of only 11-13? I don't remember exactly but it was a very very long time for sure! This was when the store was still in it old white wall layout with two doors! and now to its beautiful brown chic interior! From watching my Mom shop for pretty shoes/bags/accessories etc to becoming a customer myself! I still remember my first purchase was the silver Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse shoes when I was in my senior year! On Pedder has always had a very special place in my heart <3

Thank you for having me and hosting such a memorable event!  I'm definitely looking forward to more awesome events by On Pedder:)

Head over to On Pedder and check out these beautiful creations! I promise you won't regret it!

MBMJ♡ : Stacy neon checked taffeta-twill skirt

hello hello

Yay! My favorite category to write, my Marc by Marc Jacobs spotlight feature!
If you don't know my love for anything and everything Marc Jacobs, where have you been?! haha just kidding! but you can read all about it HERE
I was actually contemplating on putting off this post till I get an OOTD look together for this skirt [because... guilty..  I own it >,<] but you know what, if I waited till then it might just as well be next year lol

I really wanted to share this awesome find with you guys before it goes off the shelf! So.. here we go!
Today I'm introducing to you my new favorite skirt from Marc by Marc Jacobs, it is the Stacy neon checked taffeta-twill skirt!

This awesome skirt is offered in two fun candy colors, a pink/blue/violet check and a orange/pink/coral check! It has a super fun bubble balloon shape with oversized pockets!
The thing I loved about this skirt was the potential I saw in it to be a fun casual dress down, high top sneakers type outfit or for a dressier high heel girl's night out kinda look so I thought yay, why not! :)
If you were wondering, I own the pink/blue/violet check version!

I knew I was in love with this skirt the moment I saw it! Then again, how can Tammy resist candy colored.... um anything? I absolutely love this skirt and how fun it is but I have to confess, it has been quite a journey hunting down items I could match it with!

The pieces I tried to match it with were either too loud/bold/bright just like the skirt or were too dull so it ended up putting too much focus on the skirt; argh,  I just couldn't win! 
hehe, now you're thinking, WHAT IS IT!!! what have you found?:) well hehe.. I think I'll save it for another post -> I know. what a tease right lol. 

Anyways, now we've come to the end of this post! you probably wondering where you could get yourself this little awesome candy skirt! well you can check out the orange/pink/coral check version at net-a-porter for $884.07. Unfortunately, the version I own is sold out:( but I think the orange/pink/coral is just as fun! :) Alternatively, if you have a MBMJ store near you, you can always hunt down the skirts there too!:) I got mine at the Singapore Mandarin Gallery MBMJ brunch under club21:)

So tell me, which one of these yummy candy skirts do you like more?
Leave me your comments! I would love to hear from you!

I love ♡ : The Konstruktor

**I am not paid/sponsered or in any way affiliated to lomography.com:) Information from The Konstruktor press release. personal thoughts are mine!:) Sections from the press release are "quoted"! Picture provided by The Konstruktor press release and collaged by me:)

Hello hello!

My excitement for the launch of the Konstruktor must come to no surprise as I'm a big fan/collector of lomography cameras! I love shooting my fashion work in film, I think it always adds an element of surprise because you don't see the results until its developed. Film always makes the subject a little more magical and dreamy;)

Without futher ado... I present to you!!

The Konstruktor is the world's first ever 35mm do-it-yourself SLR camera! Have you ever wondered what goes on inside your little compact 35mm SLR cameras from yesteryear? well I'm happy to tell you that that putting the konstruktor together is the perfect way to learn! You can "understand and experience the essence of photography from scratch."
 Now you're probably thinking, does that I mean I need lots of tools? tape, staples, glue, paint?-> ain't nobody got time for that! haha. Well, fret not because you don't need any of that to construct your Konstruktor!
 
"Just click and screw it together in a few easy steps; you'll soon have an exquisite, fully working 35mm camera and be ready to shoot knock-out analogue photos! Of course, the Konstruktor camera is packed with a host of ingenious analogue features such as a top-down view finder to see what you shoot and to focus, an easy multiple exposure function, a ‘Bulb’ setting for long exposures and a detachable 50mm f/10 Lens! Can you build it? Yes you can!"
Here's a quick run down of the features! 
DIY 35mm SLR camera with interchangeable lens system 
Includes 50mm f/10 lens 
Shutter speed: 1/80s
Multiple exposure capability-->my fav Tripod thread for long exposures
How long does it take to create?
The camera takes about 1-2 hours to build!:) 
Now that you're done building, we can get into the customizing part!
Check out all the different ways you could customize your Konstruktor!! double the creativity!
You could go with a classy polished leather Konstruktor, how perfect for the boys right? of course any girl would look so chic rocking this too;)
Or... you could go for some graphic stickers! how cute right! I think it adds so much personality and its just so fun! I would definitely pimp my Konstuktor out with my stickers!
or how about both?:) Sticker designs on the leather !

What type of photo quality, type of pictures can you expect to take with this little awesome creation? 
Check out these samples! Whether it is a landscape, a portrait, nature or even capturing a busy train station with a long shutter speed; the possibilities are endless and unique to your creativity:) 

Tammy Thoughts :
I'm a huge fan of lomography and DIY projects! I have a DIY pinhole camera that I created a while back too! I can't wait to get my hands on one of these little babies and start constructing and customizing my very own Konstruktor!;) oh.. I'm so punny haha I love the white leather konstruktor but I can't lie! The stickers stole my heart! I think I shall customized some graphic stickers on the white leather! best of both worlds;)

Check out this little video introducing the Konstruktor!

so.. tell me, are you excited to get your hands on the world's first ever 35mm Do-It-Yourself Camera? Which Konstruktor design do you love most? 
  Leave me a comment!  I would love to hear your thoughts!

Marc Jacobs : Marc Jacobs launching make up line at Sephora

**All pictures are from WWD facebook page! click on images to go to the direct link!
hello hello
 
So if it wasn't obvious enough in my blogs professing my love for Marc Jacobs as my design hero or my countless outfits of the day, perfumes, bags, shoes by MBMJ, receiving the Marc Jacobs diet coke bottles and being so so so overly excited; then here it is. My wish has finally come true! Marc Jacobs is coming out with a make up line at Sephora!

Check it out!
 Click on the image to read the detailed interview with Marc Jacobs about the beautiful soon to be launched make up line!
I can't lie,  I have such a weakness for anything that has amazing packaging!

Quoted from fashionista.com
"It’s a pretty massive collection of 122 different products in four categories: Smart Complexion (foundation, concealer, powder), Blacquer (eye liner, lash lifter, gel crayon), Hi-Per Color (eye products, lip products, nail polish), and Boy Tested Girl Approved ( unisex products including lip balm, brow tamer, and concealer).
As for what you can expect, Jacobs told WWD that he doesn’t like naturals–”that’s a little lazy”–so don’t expect to see many nude palettes. The designer was very involved in every aspect of the line, from the packaging (inspired by a shiny, black lacquer table he has at home) to the product names (inspired by everything from his tattooes to his favorite movies).
Of his blush called “shameless” he said: “Whether it’s wearing a lace dress with a pair of boxer shorts or whether it’s taking off my clothes for a magazine or whether it’s admitting to my flaws or having a hair transplant, I’m not ashamed of what I do. I haven’t done anything wrong. And I’d prefer to be honest because I sleep better at night.”

The prices are on the higher end of the spectrum, and will range from $24 for lip balm to $59 for a seven color eye shadow palette.
 How cute are these little round square packaged nail polishes by Marc Jacobs! and as far as I can see, I'm already falling in love with all the colors! I love that it stays true to the Marc Jacobs design aesthetic that I love and have so much respect for! <3

How chic are these lipsticks packaging!

I'm most definitely purchasing pretty much every single thing from this line! <3 owhhh.. Marc Jacobs. I adore you! 
The launch of this highly anticipated make up line by Marc Jacobs at Sephora will be launching from August to December of this year!--> um my birthday is in August haha :p best birthday present already! I need to get my hands on these little beauties!
I'm not sure when it will be launched in Singapore! but I'll edit this when I find out exact dates!

So tell me, are you ready to get Marc'd Up?

Collab : Chrisellelim Youtube Channel Design

hello hello

This is just a quick little update post!

so I'm still playing catch up with my life at the moment, I'm sure by now you all know I've hurt a nerve in my hands and can barely really do anything at ease.
As I'm typing this, almost every single nerve in my hands are tugging and pulling so I guess that's my poor excuse for not blogging.
Anyways, I thought I would finally blog about this since it's been a while! I guess the fiasco with my hands has just put it off from my blogging schedule but I've decided its time!

At the beginning of this year, I had the privilege of working with one of my favorite youtubers, Chriselle Lim! yep! you read it right! I designed the Chrisellelim youtube channel layout.
This is what it looks like!
The layout was LIVE from March 18, 2013 to June 6,2013 -> [due to enforcement of new onechannel youtube design]

The new onechannel layout has been enforced permanently and what I designed for Chriselle's channel has unfortunately been replaced:( but the experience, memories of working on the design and Chriselle, is one that I'll always cherish and always be grateful for:)

new post coming up real soon!

Event : Furla Candybrissima Show Tour Singapore

Hello hello

Today I'm recapping my fun sweet candy night at the Furla Candybrissima Show Tour!
I'm still catching my breath from the week of events, as well as my sore hands but that didn't stop me from attending some of the most amazing events of 2013.
Sorry that this post is awfully late!

My big sis Alexandra, invited me to go along with her for the Furla Candybrissima Show Tour event at Paragon- immediate reaction YES?!!!?!
If you didn't know already, I'm obsessed with anything and everything that resembles food/sweets or in this case, have a delicious name;)
The furla candy bag has always been on my radar of things to have, so you can probably imagine the excitement I had when I received the invitation!


The original bags are called 'Candy bag' and the smaller version are called the 'Candy Cookie'!
How cute huh!
The sunset candy bags were beautiful, I loved the ombre effect. The set up at the event with the light box display were great because you really got to appreciate the colors at its most vivid state.
I completely fell in love with the sweet pastel shades for the 'Candy Cookie'! I almost wish that the sunset collection was offered in the mini version as well!

With the big sis! Alexandra! posing with all the beautiful candy bags!
with Agri! <3 How cute is her little cookie!!

After seeing the four personalities put together their furla candy bags, I couldn't wait but get in there and design my own too!
off we go to the CandyBrissima Creative Laboratory!
Step 1
I began my candy bag creation process with picking a base piece, I almost immediately fell in love with this pearl/beaded bottom piece--> and if you know me personally, you would know I'm all about the bright bold colors! but I really wanted to do something different for a change. I think you see where this is going!
Step 2
 I had to pick the body piece of the bag!
There were so many choices! I paced back and forth at the wall but after a good amount of time,  I finally saw one that I knew would be perfect for what  I wanted to create! I ended up picking a piece that featured these beautiful fringe embellishments.
Step 3
now, that I finished picking the two main components, it was time to put the pieces together! You're probably wondering, where is the handle Tammy?
Sorry>.< totally forgot to take an individual picture of the handle but I picked a very simple white handle because I didn't want it to distract the overall design of my bag!
Step 4
Time for accessories!! I came across a little hair clip on piece and I thought! yay! how perfect!! I clipped it on the handle and got another beaded chain to create a headband ;) do you see where this is going?

All finished!
Now it's time for the big reveal!
 
I'm sure it is no surprise to you that I loved The Great Gatsby movie-> but of course, I love the book first and foremost-> but I won't go into that in this post! sharing my love for The Great Gatsby in another post! so stay tune for that. 
Well.... since I love the fashion of the 1920s so much [#Ithinkyouseewhereimgoingwiththis] and the flapper, jazz age, Yep! you guessed it! I thought it would be cool to make a little candy flapper;)

Here's is the final product!
Presenting...
The Candy Flapper!!
 

I had so much fun at the Furla event with my big sis Alex, and was amazing meeting people! Agri, Clarissa, you guys are too cool ;) I hope we all get to catch up soon!:D
Sorry it took me so long to write up this post!
I do have a few new blog posts lined up for the next few days! first.. meeting Peter Pilotto and his AFF show! <3

Tell me, which colors of the candy bag do you like most? Do you like the Candy[big] or the cookie[small] better?

Leave me a comment! I would love to hear from you!
