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.

Happy 5th Birthday To Queenbels! Founder’s Speech

Posted on

We are turning five!

Queenbels turns five officially this coming Saturday, 30 August 2014.

Sometimes I ask myself: “Where should a clothing store should be at, after operating for 5 years? What are the milestones I should already achieve or be moving towards? Am I doing my best for the shop?”

Queenbels is entirely dependent on me, the sole owner, to navigate it. It can be overwhelming at times. Sometimes when I am at blind spots, I am very thankful that I have people who I can trust to talk to, give me valuable opinions and solutions. I am extremely thankful to super awesome customers who give me strong support at every single selection, never talk prices with me, always remind me to have my meals, bake me cakes, buy me kopi when they come and give me very valuable and constructive feedback.

They never ask anything of me except that I continue to bring in beautiful apparel. You know who you are. Thank you so much.

I mention these not to boast anything. I keep all these kindness and goodwill within me, to help myself overcome challenging moments and nasty souls who threw unkind comments at me because they couldn’t get what they wanted or when I did not do the things as they wish.

Like what my ex-mentor said to me: “The world is not perfect. If 80% of the people you are working with are good people, concentrate on these 80%.”

Very wise words.

In contrast to last year, I am saving all the perks and giveaways in-store this year. This is one way to thank customers who come to support Queenbels and also brought their best wishes for Queenbels.

Queenbels Celebrates 5th Birthday In-store Specials!

This year is also the first time I am holding night shopping. I hear your wish for longer shopping hours in the evening and I think there is no better time than to hold night shopping during our birthday month.

I am holding one more night shopping on this Friday 29 August 2014, 5-9pm. It is also the last second day of our birthday month in-store special. I hope to see everyone tonight.

Once again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the awesome love you give to Queenbels. We are here because of you.

Cheers,
Shirley
