Begin of the Six

Posted on

Today is the sixth day of June and I hope everyone is enjoying June so far.

We kick-start June by opening up the showroom on a Saturday. The showroom rest on Saturdays and takes only private viewing appointments. We had a couple of private viewings lined up and since we are already in the showroom, we decided to open the showroom to all who walk-in.

There was an in-store special too.

Kick-start June!

Kick-start June!

I hadn’t share anything about the latest two batches of new designs in store yet. New designs were snapped up at a speed that I cannot handle at times. Thank you so much for your great support.

First up, we have crochet vests in three different designs.

Crochet vest is very ideal for layering. I know most ladies will turn to camisoles and tank tops in this warm weather. However the aircon in malls or indoors can be rather harsh. Crochet vest is made of very light-weight material and will help you to shield some of the cold air. I have customers who bought this as birthday presents for their friends and nieces.

The Crochet Vest in Butterfly n Tassel is now all sold.

I have also presented a very classic and pretty puff sleeves crepe blouse.

Came in two colours, baby blue and light orange. These blouses are very suitable to wear to work. Match it with pencil skirt or pants. If you are wearing for the weekends, my suggestion will be to match it with denim skirt.

The baby blue colour is now all sold.

And we have more puff hem dresses!

This time we have them in a different material, different design and different cut. We are down to one last piece each so please grab yours before all sold.

There are many more new designs that you can come explore and try on in the showroom. So I hope to see you all soon.

Thank you once again for the lovely support. I am very thankful and grateful to my lucky stars. Thank you for bringing the good people into my life. Good people with good intentions, no hidden agendas and sincerely wishing for my best.

I promise I will continue to bring you unique designs, keep it up with the excellent workmanship and surprise you with new designs.

Cheers,

Style File on Lunar New Year 2013

Before and during the Lunar New Year, I had shared snapshots of the ongoings on my home front and the outfits I put together, on our Facebook page and on Instagram (@queenbels).

I went pink this year, including a pair of pink colour shoes which I have yet share a photo of it.

You may find the Pleated Collar Ruffles Chiffon Dress foreign because I have not share any photos of this dress on the social media.

The Pleated Collar Ruffles Chiffon Dress was a complete sell-out. Every piece was sold very quickly each time I put up a new piece. I only managed to capture a snapshot of this beautiful number just before it was grabbed by a lovely regular customer.  This dress comes in pink violet and camel. I have secured a limited quantity restock for the camel colour. I hope I can do a restock on the pink violet colour too. I will keep everyone updated on the restock status on the Facebook page, so stay tuned.

Checks Peplum Blouse was first introduced last year at one of our mini bazaars. This pretty blouse comes in pink/white checks and blue/white checks. I couldn’t find a bottom piece that fits me so I didn’t have a chance to put on this blouse earlier. I was so happy when my favourite basic apparel store did a restock of this leggings pants in new series of colours. The shade of pink on the leggings pants is almost the same as the shade of pink on my blouse and the size fits! A restock was done on the Checks Peplum Blouse and is still available for purchase in our private showroom.

The Lunar New Year is celebrated for fifteen days. You will see me in more gorgeous Queenbels apparels for this Lunar New Year. Stay with us on our Facebook page and Instagram @queenbels for new snapshots.

The showroom is open today for you to shop your Valentine’s Day dresses. I see you!

When I Was Sixteen… And Now

“You must be a Literature student, or like Jane Austen very much.”

I can’t remember the exact words but these are the gist of a comment made by a lovely customer when she set her sight on our Chiffon Puff Sleeves Dress.

I have a soft spot for long skirts and dresses. When I was sixteen, I thought I would look pretty and all fairy looking like in long skirt or dress flowing along with the wind, while my mum got very worried that my long skirt or dress would get stepped on and torn when I alighted from the bus.

Picture that?

That was when I was sixteen.

Sometimes I wonder if I also wanted to look like Cinderella or Snow White subconsciously. Remember their attires in the storybooks? Long dresses with puff sleeves.

The one dress that left the deepest impression in me is a long dress with puff sleeves in mini checks that I bought at a bazaar in my teens. It has a gathered scoop neckline complete with a ribbon in the centre. I shouldn’t have clear that away from my wardrobe. I can’t find a similar dress over the years. If only mobile phones with cameras were available at that time, I will have a photo of it now.

I have pretty much bring that part of my teenage dressing dreams into adulthood and the selections I am presenting in Queenbels.

This is how the Chiffon Puff Sleeves Dress made her way into my selection. Available in colours of peach and apple green.

The clever use of smaller pleats below the neckline and bigger pleats below the bust has created the look of an empire cut, minus the cut-in below the bust. The puff sleeves are complete with gathered hems and hidden seams.

Apple green is such a refreshing and pleasing colour to the eye. If you want to start adding pastel colours to your wardrobe, this is a nice colour to begin with.

Guess what colour did I keep?

If you ask me how I decide on the designs to introduce in every selection, I will tell you it’s my feel.

I do not produce my own designs at this moment. I do have designs stored in my mind. For example, if I want to introduce a dress suitable for a wedding dinner, I will look out for details like having ruffles or embroidery, the cutting of the dress, mini or big pleats and so on.

I still very much stick to two points when acquiring new designs for the shop; classic and versatile. By now you would have notice the continuation of the above traits in the latest selection.

I have heard comments from ladies who had bought dresses for just one single function and never wear it again. Especially for annual company dinner and dance and wedding dinner. Another headache is getting a dress if you are going to be bridesmaid or brides-to-be who are buying or renting suitable dresses for their bridesmaids. I think buying that dress is definitely more worth the money if it is affordable and versatile for daily wear.

In the latest selection, I have introduced a chiffon dress that is so perfect for the bridesmaid. The gorgeous roses sewn onto the sleeves are so pretty in real life. The design and colour is so picture perfect.

I selected four colours; pink violet, cream, light orange and teal. Each colour has its own uniqueness and character, just like each individual bridesmaid.

Each dress comes with a detachable matching colour sash which allows you to wear the dress on its own or with a defined waistline.

What surprises me is, I have mothers-to-be who came looking for a dress for the coming Lunar New Year and found this Chiffon Pleats Dress with Rose Sleeves a perfect fit. The generous use of fabric to create the pleats has resulted a size suitable for the glowing mothers-to-be. They can continue to wear this dress after giving birth. This is real versatility.

So brides-to-be, if you are looking for dresses for your bridesmaids, do look at this gorgeous dress. I think it’s wonderful to give this dress to your bridesmaids and they can keep it after your wedding for fond memories.
