The Glitter Gypsy Princess

Because we all need some sparkles in our lives right? :)

A massive THANK YOU to all your lovely comments yesterday, it really made my day! I knew it wouldn't be easy, there are so many fashion stores out there, but this is my dream, although I have only made a tiny step, I'm happy because at least I am one step closer. :D

Fashion & Design should never be in my path, being a Maths graduate, interned in a Bank & taking a Finance Masters next year. All those things should lead me to banking but I can't help what I love, none of us can. So thanks you all for being so kind and supportive!

ps. The City Sage is having a lovely giveaway - a pair of Chie Mihara sandals!

I forget how much i love the word Gypsy... And these pictures + outfits completely embody gypsy-ness.

I'm so glad you went ahead to fulfill your dream, doesn't matter where you 'came from' so long as you get there :D

Brigadeiro said...

How absolutely STUNNING! Different textures, beautiful colours, and shiny things, love it! :)

It doesnt matter!! you dont have to work on the strict fields of your study only. there are so many opportunities out there :) I for one believe that what you learn in University is mainly to equip you with prob-solving ability and 'thinking outside the box' kinda thing, that you can apply at any other aspects in life :D
I did management/ecommerce for my undergrad, then another honours year for my ecommerce. but then fashion, beauty, and art are my passions. now I do my own business on nail salon and jewelry design. I couldnt be happier doing anything else :D I dont think i waste my study too!you go girl!! ^^

Very true, none of us can help what we love...that's why even though I am a Graphic Design student, I will be working at my uncle's LABORATORY (!!!) this summer and next June I hope I will pass the entrance exams to Veterinary Medicine! :)

The medicine & animals are calling me, I swear. Haha.

Btw, this gypsy thing...there is a belly dance style called TRIBAL and it has a gypsy-esque styling of the costumes - it's crazily trashy beautiful!

And I'm so happy you're following your heart---I started university thinking I was going to do science, but all it took was one literature class and i was sold! the most important thing is to listen to what your dreams are telling you, and the rest will come!

Lovely glitter photos and post, that's so great that you've decided to follow your passion. Your shop is being saved as one of my favorites and if I ever get the courage to do an outfit post it'll be with something from there... :)

Chessa! said...

such gorgeous colors...I love when clothes gives me the goosebumps bc they are so beautiful...

Winnie said...

All of these images are amazing. I could look at them for hours.

That's amazing that your education is more geared towards finance and banking, yet you're still managing to fulfill your interests at the same time! I'm an Art History grad but going onto study a masters in marketing in sept...so I think it goes to show that we can really do anything we set our minds to!

I love the website and am really quite tempted to buy. It's such a clean layout and the prices are pretty decent too. I actually have it bookmarked so I can check out any new stock!

smmmitten said...

You're so lucky to be both right- and left- brained =)

TheBeautyFile said...

Oh, I couldn't agree more about doing what you love...I am training to become a speech pathologist, but without my blog I would feel like something was seriously missing! Thanks for continuing to inspire...I will be in touch by the end of the week with some ideas for my blog. YAY!
