Second March In, Whimsical

Posted on

It was first a high and then a low.

The high was when the supplier agreed to send me the new designs. I thought there was no hope of bringing the whimsical prints back at least one more time before Christmas because it was so hard trying to get updates. So I hopped/bounced/star-jumped in joy when the updates came through!

Then the low came when the shipment was delayed. I was utterly disappointed because I had selected these new prints specially for the festive season and I had already planned to put up these new designs in the shop on Christmas Eve.

The shipment finally showed up. I guessed it wasn’t too bad to have these up on Boxing Day. We are still in the twelve days of Christmas!

Thank you so much for the awesome support, both in-store and online. Thank you for the big love for the second march-in whimsical selection. And I am so sorry for the delay.

I guess I don’t have to say much why Reindeer and the Shiny Stars was selected specially for this festive season.

It is all illustrated on the blouse. The snow, the stars and the galloping reindeer! If you are looking for a relax fit printed blouse to go with long pants, I highly recommend Reindeer and the Shiny Stars Blouse. You will love the awesome comfy of a chiffon blouse and the beautiful print.

Long time fans of Queenbels will know that there is always a little story behind the designs I select. 甜蜜蜜 is one such blouse that reminds me of the wonderful time spent cycling by the beach on that beautiful day. Maybe we should go for night cycling under the starry night next time.

Whimsical in the Forest Long Blouse is the star in this selection.

The entire piece is built on a polka dots tank. The polka dots tank is already a scorer and on top of it, the colourful illustration is so eye catching. I already have an idea how to style this number.

Hohoho! Want to make a guess why I selected Mermaid beneath the Stars Blouse? Hint: The view.

Ta-dah! Yes the back view of the mermaids! I have taken a liking to strike a pose with a victory sign and snap a photo from the back. It was a random pose initially and now it is my favourite pose for a photo.

The second march-in of the whimsical prints has caught as much attention as the welcome back selection. There maybe a very long pause after this whimsical selection and I am not certain about restocks once everything is sold. If you haven’t got yourself the pieces, do so soon. As I am typing this, some designs are already fully invoiced.

Feel free to email me at shop@queenbels.com.sg on all product enquiries. If you want quicker response, do leave me your mobile number and request for whatsapp/sms reply.

Thank you so much for loving the Whimsical Selection. Thank you for wearing Queenbels.

Cheers,

Welcome Back, Whimsical

I was told this is very not me. The whimsical prints.

Maybe there is a child in me. Maybe a part of me doesn’t really want to grow up and get into adulthood in the not-so-cute fashion. Why do we have to leave colours and fairytales out of our life as we grow up?

The biggest present from this procurement trip; I brought the whimsical prints back.

It has been a good two years since the last whimsical prints selection and everyone has been missing them very much. The communication was not very established since the last selection and it wasn’t easy to re-connect with this particular supplier. I hope I can introduce these whimsical prints on a regular basis, so wish me luck.

Baby Owl Blouse was the first design I picked. Look at the cutsy big round eyes! I like the unique cut which kept one side of the printed chiffon as a drape design and the use of embossed knit for the inner piece. I grabbed one of the stocks and sent it for washing almost immediately upon arrival. Can’t wait to put it on!

My Storybook Blouse is my next favourite. Look at the snow-covered rooftops! Just like a page out of my childhood storybooks. Did you have any favourite storybooks?

I think this makes a really awesome Christmas present. I cannot think of how anyone not to like this blouse. It will be a pleasant surprise!

Oh this oh this! Dainty Bunny Long Blouse! There is nothing I don’t like about this blouse. The colours, the cutting, the print, the attention paid to the details. You must see the real piece to know what I am talking about. I have kept this to go with my tights and a pair of ballerina flats. I will share my outfit photo soon!

There are more whimsical prints that I will leave you to discover when you come to see them for yourselves. For those who have already bought this selection, I would love to see how you style your blouses.

Thank you so much for loving the Whimsical Selection. Thank you for wearing Queenbels.

What I Am Wearing This Christmas

1 Day to Christmas Eve!

I hope everyone has already got their outfits all ready for the coming Christmas celebration. If you haven’t, you still have a couple of hours on Christmas Eve to find that dress you want.

I have received questions on recommended outfits for a Christmas lunch, dinner or party. I think I shall share what I am wearing this Christmas. Maybe this will help.

I have shortlisted two dresses for this coming Christmas.

Chiffon Layered Dress in Fuchsia

The Chiffon Layered Dress in Fuchsia (available in Teal too) is one of the new arrivals in the latest selection. I like the crinkled chiffon fabric, the layers are so soft to the touch. I especially like the full skirt that begins at waist down to knee length which gives a beautiful swirl at a slight turn. I am going to match it with a pair of nude colour pumps and a pair of silver ear studs. Oh, and a nice small hand-carry bag.

Crayon Print Dress

Crayon Print Dress

The Crayon Print Dress is a very fun number and was introduced at our mini bazaar earlier this year in August. A very lovable dress and stands out among the full colour dresses. The crayon print is the main highlight of the dress and the drape front is a detail I personally like very much.

Now the question is, which dress do I wear to the Christmas Eve dinner? Which dress to wear on Boxing Day?

I have 1 day to decide!

Cheers,
Shirley

P.S. The showroom will be open on Christmas Eve, 24/12/2012, from 11am to 4pm. Come get something pretty for yourself. I see you.

Christmas Tree Spotting

Christmas Tree at Takashimaya 2012

Christmas is in the air!

This lighted Christmas tree at Takashimaya Singapore is by far, my favourite.

The yearly Christmas lights in Orchard Road was launched last Saturday. I decided to wrap up Monday’s work with a walk down on Orchard Road. Getting to Orchard Road now takes a much shorter time since it is within walking distance from the showroom.

The walk down on Orchard Road, looking at the Christmas lights, is a yearly activity for my husband and I. It started a few years back when we got our first camera. Christmas in Singapore is a totally different atmosphere comparing to countries with winter and snow. The Christmas lights somehow replace the snow, to me.

Last year was the first time I went to view the “avalanche” and “snow” event at Tanglin Mall. The most beautiful sight wasn’t the “snow”. It was the laughter of the children playing around with the foam and immersing themselves in the wonderful Christmas mood.

Have you gone Christmas tree spotting?

Cheers,
Shirley

Snowmen In The House

Snowmen in the House!

Happy Sunday!

I hope your weekend has been good so far. I spent yesterday afternoon in the showroom, opening up the space for people who already knew where we are and for any lucky person who discovered us. I did some housekeeping too and added some new displays.

I love Christmas.

I am not a Christian so I don’t celebrate Christmas as a religion.

I love the Christmas season for the gifting and sharing, warmth and the songs. This is the time of the year that I send my well wishes via Christmas cards.

This year’s Christmas is especially meaningful to me.

Queenbels has found a place to call her own.

And because it’s her first Christmas in her new place, I must do up the place with Christmas decorations!

This is the first time I buy a snow spray. I tasked the husband to do the spraying. I think I am better at helping out than to do the task.

I now have a white Christmas tree and two snowmen in the house!

Pretty? “D

Cheers,
Shirley

Yes! We are Bazaar-ing!

Posted on

A candid shot of lovely model qing when we did an outdoor catalog shoot. Very spontaneous and pretty model. I hope I will get a chance to work with her again.

It’s FRIDAY!

I hope everyone had a great week so far and all happy to welcome the weekend, unwind and take a stroll. I was filtering some of the catalog photos and came across this candid shot. I think it suits the coming happy weekend mood so I post it.

As the title writes, yes we are going to hold a bazaar again real soon. This time I managed to get a centrally located space in a shopping mall right in town, 3 mins walk from a MRT station, very accessible. The space is bigger which allows more racks and items to be displayed and you can come shop comfortably in the air-conditioned mall. I will be attaching more details soon so watch this space.

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYBODY!

We will be Right Back Soon!

Remember This?

We will be holding a mini bazaar again! Stay tuned for more details!
