Call me shop girl

Yeah, that's what I am right now - shop girl. For the past 2 weeks, that's what i have been up to, serving, greeting and best of all being surrounded by beautiful beautiful vintage clothes. Thought I gave it a try and I actually liked it so here I am committing to this for the next couple of months, a break from the regular day job is kinda refreshing. The experience is good so far, nothing too nasty 'cept for a case of shoplifting (really audacious i tell you!). Customers are either lovely or boring, you get people walking into a vintage shop asking if they are used or secondhand! Seriously? Anyway, this will be good experience to prep me for my future shop if I have a chance of opening one some day.

btw, isn't the gown on Miss Hepburn gorgeous?

A cow with dots

Ever heard of cows with polka dots? Well i know of one with multi-colored dots and can make a uber neat headpiece. Actually an alter ego of a friend, polkadottedcow is now moving on to handy crafting creating super sweet bands like the ones below. It all started when cow was helping a fellow friend create a head piece for her wedding and soon realise her hidden talent.

The pieces created went thru major editing from the usual glamourous head pieces for weddings into simple ones for everyday wear from morning to night. What I love most is that they are best worn with casuals, nothing too matchy - pretty much the philosophy of polkadottedcow. And most importantly they are extremely afforable, available from S$39.
