OXFORD FLATFORMS - yeswalker.com



I have recently received a pair of shoes from yeswalker.com to review, I needed a pair of black flats so I decided to choose these black mesh panel Oxford flatforms. I actually had a hard time deciding between the ones I've chosen and these, so in the end I asked Jenn from clothesencounters for her opinion.

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!!

I will be wearing pairing these shoes for my upcoming video - Winter fashion lookbook 2012, look forward to it :)

Take care!

DIY ★ Tartan circle/skater skirt


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. :)
