Would you like to wear a chess board on your body? No, why not? It’s really fashionable because the iconic check squares are a big hit on the fashion runway with a myriad of designers offering their take on the monochrome motif. Well, if checks are not your kinda thing, then perhaps some abstract graphics, floral prints or ethnic visuals then? One way or another, you’ll need to jazz up your wardrobe with some form of motifs. The idea may not sound exactly appealing if we’re just going by words but check these Compagna collection from Korea and perhaps you’ll be inspired. They’re not your riot-of-color-cry-out-loud designs but each piece has a nice feminine touch that would not contribute to eyesores.

I no longer can slip on my jeans but instead, I have to literally jump into them. And the belt, which I used to put on to tighten the pair of jeans to my waist, is now history. *sigh* I’ve been telling myself that I need to shave some of those kilos off my butt and I need to do so fast but all the time, not controlling what I put in my mouth! So here’s a random post to show you what I’ve been feeding on.

I haven’t been shopping at Etsy for a couple of months. As a matter of fact, I haven’t even visited the site for awhile. But I did today and was blown away by these handmade embroidered silk ribbon necklace pendants! Embroidered rose, daisy, iris, lily, daffodil, sunflower, hollyhocks, chrysanthemum, and more! Wow, they are SO SO pretty! I probably never mentioned it but I have a soft spot for any type of embroidery work. Yes, and I even did embroidered craftwork some years back and I’ll show you one of my pieces in a bit if you like to see. (^_-)
