Kopling Arts & Coffee Festival

Yesterday Uli, her friend Marsha and I went to KCAF 2015 held by Kopi Keliling. It was an art convention of sorts, complete with artist alleys, exhibitions, workshops and live shows. The signature move being their free cup of coffee with every ticket. I've never been to one of these before so I didn't really know what to expect. At first, I was afraid it was going to be crowded with pretentious artsy people who wouldn't even give you the time of day, but it's actually filled with so many friendly, talented people from all over the country. Many foreigners seemed to have come to check it out as well - and I even saw one girl being scouted - how lucky! It covers all ranges of art form, although the most commonly found was illustration - which is just my turf. The workshops also looked like a whole lot of fun, although, sadly we didn't join. It was an incredible experience for me, and it's always nice to meet new illustrators. Hope we'll see them on the blog sometime soon!

This outfit was put together in a hurry, as I was determined to finish a book before I went to the event. So, I'm sorry if you think this is kind of crappy. I didn't even manage to do my hair. The whole point was to accommodate this dress into a skirt, as I'd never done that before. But it surprised me to find a fitting top for it. But I'm quite satisfied with the choice that I made. Just wish I had more time to do my hair or even think about doing my hair. The artsy top seems fitting for the occasion, though. Also, sorry for the lack of makeup, though I rarely wear one anyway. I sported a nude lipstick in this one but I guess it was too nude to tell. By the way, there's an artsy event on my campus as well next week, so I hope you'll look forward to that. I'm a committee member so I'm not sure how much time I'd have to get some content for the blog. Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see ;)

Mix It Up a Notch: Black Heart Print Dress

I'm pretty sure I've told you the story behind this dress before. It all started out with me seeing Alexa Chung wearing this very dress with a heart-print cardigan in one of Vero Moda's stores, which is where this dress came from. However, when I went to the store, this dress was long discontinued - it was from seasons past. So I searched high and low on Kleider Kreisel for it - and actually the matching cardigan as well - and was so thrilled when I finally purchased one. It has a baby-doll cut, with elastic upper waistband and zipper on the left side, below the sleeves. The material is rather breezy, even though it has two layers of chiffon. The collar is the strong, defining feature for me - and what initially sold me to the dress. It is incredibly versatile as well as perfect for all seasons. Honestly, cannot wait to wear this more creatively in the future ;) (Click each photo to go to their respective posts!)
