Space Invasion @ The Cathay


Sponsored Advertorial

Yesterday, I was invited down to Space Invasion by Jolene to pick out some items! New clothes are always welcomed! :D

If you haven't heard of Space Invasion, below's a short introduction:

Looking at this photo, they are actually quite pretty! I was so busy taking pictures that I forgot to give them a second look. :(

The "vintage" rack, from which I picked one out of the two items that I bagged home!

"Nice??"

IMG_9166
"Quite nice right, should I try it?"

IMG_9168
"How much?". By the way, it's only S$19 ;)

IMG_9157
This is just self-explanatory, girls. One of my very first blushes was from MAC! I would have bought a few products with my own money if I weren't more into cream blushes and foundations.

Lots of colours to pick from!

I made S my face model:

This one suits him so perfectly don't you think!

IMG_9178IMG_9179
Oh I was holding his face because he kept moving about.

He carried my bag while I was trying on clothes. I disagree with girls who let their bf carry their girly handbags or clutches just because they can. >:(

IMG_9171
"Should I take some more?"

His leg? He decided to pose like me, that's what it is.

By the way, this shirt I was wearing is an upcoming piece from Hollyhoque! Will post outfit pictures soon, so stay tuned! ;)

"Is this nice??"

Cropped babydoll peplum tops have been trending for some time, and I really really like this piece (which I didn't take T.T)! It's from Shopskinned if I'm not wrong, and the fit is fabbb! Topshop has similar ones, but this is only at a fraction of the price. It looks so loose on the model, but looks so fitting on me. I have always wondered 1) why Sheila offered me modelling opportunities in the first place, and 2) why she still hasn't replaced me. :/ I'm really thankful for the opportunity nonetheless :')

Anyway, this is the vintage-looking piece that I picked:

Pair it with jeans, midi skirt, or a high-waist shorts for a casual look like I did! Really love how comfortable it feels, and how versatile it is. I wore it immediately for Clozette's Tea Party in the afternoon! Look out for the blog post soon! :)

I almost fell...

A closer look. The red flowers help to brighten up the whole piece!

The let's-pretend-someone-else-took-this selfie. Hahaha.

I also got to bring home a second piece of apparel, which appeared in one of the photos above! Can you guess what it is?? Stay tuned for that too!
