Why I love Gossip Girl :)

My two favorite Fashion Icons Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen in the series GG has been showcasing different styles in different seasons and moods. How I love Blair's Queen B style, romantic and classy while Serena is sexy and wild with a touch of elegance. Here are a few of their get ups that i really love;
Serena's key hole Maxi dress was one of my favorite sexy dresses that she wore.

How I love the blissful florals that Blair is wearing on her biking date

The best friends wearing yellow in their own style. Blair is wearing a printed dress and Serena paired her yellow top with black shorts.

 I fell in love with this floral dress the first time I saw it. I made my own version of this dress and that what I wore on my 24th birthday :) 

This is an example of how 2 different floral prints could go well together. And ohh that umbrella. :) Very fashionable!

 Another example of 2 big floral prints that looks good when combined in a look . Gorgeous Blair!

Serena's Gray maxi dress is the first maxi dress that I appreciated. I used to dislike maxi dresses because it isn't suitable for my body built but I saw how this dress can make you look like a Goddess.

Bold Print Ruffled Pencil Skirt Dress; My Last Summer Project

My Last Project for this Summer

                      This used to be my old grand mother's straight figured Maxi dress. I tried to put it on and I looked like a tank with my full figure. I decided to make a tailored dress out of it and Voila! It is a peplum mini pencil skirt dress. Initially, i loved it because of the bold prints and its floral plus the color blocking. It really fits the summer season. I could pair it with sexy heels or wedges depending on the occasion to that I would use this.  Hope It looks good somehow. I know I'm a frustrated fashion designer at least. allow me to put my imaginations into reality :)

My Previous Creations for 2010-2012

These were my first experiments on redesigning clothes :) Some were heirlooms. They are over vintage designed dresses that could be reinvented to have a new look. Here are some of my reinvented clothes.

 2011 summer reiventions

I reinvented a gawky floral shorts and turned it into a poncho like top

 2011 summer reinvention

This used to be a checkered dress. Unfortunately, the dress doesn't fit me so my alternative was to make it into a blouse. I had to add ruffled details for the blouse to fit my chest area LOL and distract the plain checkered design since it looks too tight. 

 2011 post summer reinvention

Blair Waldorf's dress inspired me to this reinvented vintage dress of my granny. I cut the hemlines short and eventually, it looked like a hi low dress. It is a simple sleeveless floral dress. I used this on my 24th birthday.

 2012 summer reinvention

Another vintage dress from granny which didn't fit my large scultpure. I had to reinvent it in preparation for my sister's birthday.I'm happy that it turned out wearable and hides some flabs :)
This is a reinvented dress from gawky floral shorts. It has a bubble hemline and a tube dress. This was one of my 2011 summer reinvention
This was an A -line pinstripe boring skirt then I transformed it into a pleated tulip skirt - Summer 2011

This has been my creation last 2010, It is a color blocked tube dress with mullet skirt. I love this dress because it is well constructed, A very basic dress that you can pair with formal ensembles or casual. Very versatile - 2010

My  polkadot haltered challeco which i could pair it with jeans, skirt and other plain clothes. 2011

\Green ruffled dress for corporate or casual wear. I combined old skirt peices witha sleeveless top and added ruffles for a more chic look. -2011
