Dress : Covetz  |  Tights : Topshop  |  Necklace : From Singapore

This is probably the last blog post of the year. Bittersweet feeling as I write this. Looking back, twenty twelve was a really good year for me. So many opportunities unfolded before me and I'm thankful for each and every one of them. I'm hoping for greater things next year too! Can't wait to take on the new year with much anticipation. 

I wore this plush dress from Covetz on Christmas day. Christmas this year was cosy and quiet. Was surprised with gifts from my loved ones too. Thank you (you know who you are!) And a big thank you to everyone whom has walked with and supported me with the sweetest emails and comments you girls left me this year. I truly appreciate every one of them. I do apologize for not replying them sometimes. But I try my best to reply when I do find the time. You girls have touched my life even in the smallest of ways.. I hope I have touched yours as well.

Isaiah 61:1
The Lord god has put his Spirit in me, because the Lord has appointed me to tell the good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort those whose hearts are broken, to tell the captives they are free, and to tell the prisoners they are released.

Top : Hanasecret  |  Skirt : Cotton On 

Met up with the lovely Tasha (amazing photographer and person). I got to know her through blogging. I love that part about blogging.. I get to meet such inspiring people from over the world. Truth be told, it was very nerve wracking meeting her for the first time. But once I saw her and we chatted, we could instantly click and I could be myself around her. She's a wonderful person online as well as real life. I loved her gentle spirit and her little chuckles. She has the cutest laugh! I also realized that she sighs after she laugh. I find that so unique! It's adorable. Here are just a few photos I've edited. Check out her blog here for more photos :)

Habakkuk 3:19
The Lord God is my strength. He makes me like a deer that does not stumble so I can walk on the steep mountains.

Top : Hana Secret  |  Skirt : Wicket  |  Headpiece : CGV

This is the last batch of photos I took with Chris! I'm really really happy with how the photos came out. And I wouldn't be able to achieve such photos without the help of this amazing photographer, his props, his studio and lighting, Wicket (for sponsoring this denim skirt), Hana Secret (for sponsoring this cropped top), Cute Granny Vintage (for the lovely head piece) and my dearest college mate (for the heart tights!) Btw, Wickets promotion is still going on, click here! And for my readers especially; mention "twistchic x wicket" in your order from when you shop at Wicket to get free shipping!

Before I forget - Merry Christmas to you all! Its been such a wonderful year. So many beautiful memories that I will always treasure. Looking back throughout 2012, I've seen myself grow little by little. Understanding the meaning of this life better day by day. I like to believe I've grown more matured in some areas of life - though I'm still as goofy as ever and I don't ever want to change that part of me. I thank the Lord for his everlasting love that never failed me. He has put me through so much - some days I feel as though I couldn't take the struggle anymore but I eventually got out of the pain and became stronger. I am thankful for this great God.. I am so thankful for this time of the year.. Christmas - the birth of Jesus.

Dress : Covetz  |  Floral headpiece : Cute Granny Vintage 

Recently I did a small collab with my good friend, Chris, who's in the same college as I. We've been collaborating for quite some time now. He's a really good photographer and I really like the way he works - smart and quick. This shoot was pretty spontaneous. That's also one of the things I like about him. He's good at spontaneous thinking when we were coming up with ideas for an indoor shoot. I got inspired by lots of photos I've collected overtime via tumblr (tumblr is amazingggg) 

Here are the first batch of photos I edited. I had lots of fun editing these. Also, a huge thank you to Covetz for this quirky dress! How cute is the back?! And thank you to CGV for this floral headpiece. x!

2 Corinthians 5:15
Christ died for all so that those who live would not continue to live for themselves. He died for them and was raised from the dead so that they would live for him.

I'm pleasantly happy with how much my brother's photography skills have improved - haha. I really love the lighting this morning when we took these. Like I said earlier - this studded denim dress is my new favourite dress in my closet! It's quite perfect. The cut, the material, the little detailing of studs and a cut out triangle. It's edgy and feminine at the same time - very much like my style! 

Good news for those who need a quick shopping fix before christmas comes! Wicket has a promotion going on - buy any 3 items from their promotional site for only SGD$45! And to top that off, there's free shipping for my blog readers. Just mention "twistchic x wicket" in your order form :)

So prepare your minds for service and have self-control. All your hope should be for the gift of grace that will be yours when Jesus Christ is shown to you.

Skirt : PhatCulture  |  Top : MNG  |  Headpiece : CuteGrannyVintage

How cute is this skirt!! For Malaysians - does it not remind you of the famous paddle pop ice-cream we used to eat back then?! I've never seen anything like this skirt before. Pretty pastels and a slight touch of neon shades that fits perfect together. I instantly felt like a fairy/unicorn/mermaid, thing... And for those who have not heard the good news already, you can purchase this skirt (or anything else besides shoes and Thimble products) with a 20% discount off when you mention this code "suelynPhat" when you place an order. Also, I've updated my shop with more preloved goodies!

Vanilla Mood is a new sponsor on my blog. It's an online fashion brand all the way from Bangkok. I'm thrilled I got the opportunity to wear this amazing two piece dress from their in-house collection. The cut and fabric is perfect! I couldn't stop twirling in this skirt. Also how cute is the pattern!? The huge polka dots gives this dress such a retro feel to it. Love! Do check out their newest collection too - click here! They've got such lovely pastel pieces - I'm drooling.

So what's new.. Well recently I cleared up my closet, taking out the stuff I never wore/ hardly wore/ probably won't wear anymore. I couldn't believe how much clothes there was in my closet that I didn't know existed. lol! So with that, I thought of selling them, hopefully someone else will love them as much as I do. The reason why I don't wear them is either cause I really have no where to go (yep, my life is pretty simple and boring, just the way I like it) or.. my style changed over time. I've just posted the first batch of dresses that I thought would be great for Christmas - since it's around the corner! I'll be updating the shop every now and then, whenever I find time i guess. Click here to browse the shop

Also, being a little more free now, I've been sketching, diy-ing a lot more lately. It feels good - to be away from school work! Here, I'm wearing the latest DIY I did. I painted these white butterflies on my boring cotton on shoes. I'm pretty happy with the results! 

Luke 6:45
Good people bring good things out of the good they stored in their hearts. But evil people bring evil things out of the evil they stored in their hearts. People speak the things that are in their hearts.
