I beg to differ now as I think it is a wonderful love story! Sigh and the leads in the play were awesome! They look so terribly in love with one another..that I felt as though I was truly taking a walk into their lives
Not to mention... the gorgeous vintage wear which Rachel Adams wore in the movie.. which fitted her so beautifully... Sighs...I couldn't find much pictures..but I guess these will have to do:

And Lego is also seriously timeless! My students still talk to me anout lego all the time and how they built sets with their parents at home which I think is such a great family bonding idea and oh so adorable! In the future, Jerome and I would defintely be doing that with our son!

Their going to be mine soon!
The wedges above are simply to die for... they have it in red, cream, black and grey... I'm thinking of getting it in cream or black as I have surfed through my cupboard and I can;t find anything to match those grey beauties...
Life has been getting a little busy for me now...as i have just recently started working at a yogurt shop called Red Mango Froyo.. the working environment is pretty okay.. just a little hectic during peak hours! Anyways.. as I'm working I have more $$$ to spare...which i will be saving up to spend on clothing (go-go vintage wear!) and to hold a flea again most probably in August (: Another piece of awesome news.. I'm finally on http://www.lookbook.nu/ after dreaming for so many nights! YAY!
I am a happy girl :)

Im a little angry with myself as... If i had gotten there a few minutes earlier I might have gotten my hands on some of her items.. :C stupid me...

I love this book also as it has many useful tips and beautiful brightly coloured pictures of vintage fashion (: Reading this books just makes my fingers itching to go thrift shopping! I'm also really envious... because singapore has such a limited market for vintage wear :( Sighs :C

Instead I would like to figure out some fire-proof ways of distinguishing true vintage pieces from those that are vintage inspired or counterfeits..Many a times I find myself wondering if the item I'm about to purchase is a true vintage piece... I feel really cheated if it isnt :C
I found some really useful websites that, I thought were really helpful:
www.ehow.com has some really wonderful stuff about vintage and thrift shops.. that I got really engrossed until I forgot about my post! Do check it out if you are interested in vintage and trying to hunt for some at local thrift stores (:
By the way... I went to Flea.Fly.Flo.Fun. last Saturday at F1 pit building and it was amazing! It was also really cool..as there were about a handful of shops selling vintage threads and accessories..I really liked some of the dresses...
moreover they were gping really cheap at $15! However... many of them didnt fit me or looked a little too costume like.. Vintage bags were many... but I didnt think it was right to splurge on them as I already had quite a collection going for myself... There was also polaroid cameras! going at a price of $60-$120!
I didnt have much cash at hand... so I didnt wanna get it :C
I saw a really pretty pair of sparkly vintage earrings I liked..but I felt they were a little over my budget so I didnt get them :C
In the end I got myself 2 hairpins, a cool leather belt with green polo men on it and a men's red shirt! Jerome and I also had our potraits painted!

Twiggy rose to stardom at the mere age of 17 after appearing in the shop window of a hair salon..Since then she was dubbed the " Face of 66" Twiggy has since appeared in numerous magazine covers and even had her own clothing line... She is known for her trade mark crop hair and painting her own eyelashes below... something which was foreign to people then!
