TISSUE WORM
07th July, 2009


DIY cropped/half-chiffon tshirt, H&M bandage skirt, Pedder Red suede booties and Zara fringe bag


It’s really kinda hard to tell from this photo but this is my DIY tshirt. I was experimenting around with some chiffon and I ended up cutting out the whole back section and sewing in the chiffon. It’s kinda hard to tell but the edges where the chiffon and tshirt meet are kinda really badly done but I think the unfinished/haphazard quality looks kinda cool to me…uh yah nvm.

Anyways I wore this outfit on Friday night for my FIRST night out clubbing since I’ve been back. Yep, I’ve been such a good unemployed little girl and have been staying home as much as possible in order to conserve my measly little baby piggie bank, but since this was Mo’s first Friday here, and cos a bunch of my friends were leaving back to overseas, we decided to all head out. We started the night out at my friend’s place where we had GIRLS vs. BOYS beer pong, and YES of course, the girls won :D twice.

And so the rest of our night began:


and a sort of better image of the back of my shirt.

And on a totally different note, have you guys seen these Jeffrey Campbell shoes? Look familiar?? Well either way I’m completely in love with the reals and the fakes so of course I want this pair so bad. Too bad no where in HK sells JC shoes ): and shipping from US/UK is gonna be too much…well not that I have $1449hk/$180us to spare in the first place ):

On another note: I went for a job interview today for a graphic designer position at this really well-known department store (famous from London, not saying..just figure it out) and I don’t think I’ll be getting the job cos the lady (who was Visual Merchandising Director) kinda stressed that they were looking for someone with at least 2 years experience and who can speak Cantonese (to liase with contractors, printers, warehouse ppl etc.) and seeing that my experience is only from internships and my Cantonese is basically shite, I don’t think I’ll be getting the job. I haven’t cried about it yet but I probably will in about 2 weeks when I get the call/email saying “SORRY YOU SUCK”. Seriously, this is literally my dream job: working with the VM team to design displays, brand booklets, store signage/branding, the restaurant’s daily/weekly/special menus, advertisements, in-store visuals and other awesome stuff. UGH im so sad now ): but I guess I haven’t totally been denied yet so hopefully they’ll somehow realise I am way more awesome than Cantonese and offer me the job anyways. PRAY FOR ME!

I like how the shirt turned out! It looks good in the photos! And I hope you get the job. But I hope they don’t make you attend seven hours of job training like I have to today @_@ I hope it’s paid lol!

PS: Yesssss, things were SO much cheaper at the sale. ten bucks for a hoodie, six for a shirt, six for a skirt, ten for a dress, 3 for a tank top…and forgot the rest, but yeah! Pretty good haha.

Looks like you had an awesome night and that DIY tee looks pretty great to me! Good luck with the job and either way something will come along sooner or later. It makes me worried that if I ever move to HK, my cantonese would definitely not be up to scratch at all.
