Some of the Beautiful Numbers I Kept

Posted on

Tri Colour Chiffon Tunic

Baby’s Breath Dress

Nautical Buttons Blouse in Red/White Stripes

Mini Pleats Front Collar Blouse in Mustard

I am always very proud of the beautiful pieces that I scout for my webstore and I can never resist picking a few for my personal wardrobe. Yes, a few out of the many. Most of the designs are available in very limited quantities and therefore I have to give my customers priority to own them.

I personally favour tunics very much. I like the relaxed fit design. I have almost all the tunics that I have brought back for my webstore. With no exceptions, I have also picked two tunics in the latest selection for my personal wardrobe.

Tri Colour Chiffon Tunic

This has become my first chiffon tunic. I like the soft, light-weight material and the luscious look when I match it with a pair of tights. This is so comfortable when I need to run errands and it is very suitable for weekend activities. Be it on a shopping trip, a chill-out at a cafe or a stroll in the park.

Baby’s Breath Dress

This number is also a first for me. My first terry knit tunic. I am so pleased with the overall design using a combination of cotton and terry knit, the zip at the left shoulder front to add a detail and the use of terry knit on the sleeve holes. I will match it with a pair of light-colour leggings and a pair of flats.

Nautical Buttons Blouse in Red/White Stripes

Mini Pleats Front Collar Blouse in Mustard

I have very few sleeveless blouses. Some arm holes in sleeveless blouses are too wide for my arms. A well-constructed sleeveless blouse has proportionate arm hole length in line with the size of the blouse, not too small, not too wide. I am very careful with apparels in stripes print. We all know how vertical lines create a slim look and how horizontal lines widens our body visually. The Nautical Buttons Blouse in Red/White Stripes comes in vertical stripes print, designed with draped sides and a smart standing pointed collar. Neat sewing is a big pull factor that draws me to like it.

I grew to like pleats when I started to wear apparels in pleats earlier this year. I have Gianna Pleated Dress and Scarlett Pleated Maxi Skirt. Mustard is a colour I did not have and I personally think it is a gorgeous summer colour. So now Mini Pleats Front Collar Blouse in Mustard is a proud addition to my personal wardrobe.

Love Me Everyday Shrug

Are you bringing your mummy dearest for some shopping? Air-conditions in shopping malls may get real chilling sometimes. A shawl or wrap in your bag will come handy at this time to protect your mummy dearest from some cold air. If your mummy prefer something thicker and made of knit, I recommend the Love Me Everyday Shrug.

What and Why on PlusThatQ Selection

Posted on

PlusThatQ Selection

The brand new selection, PlusThatQ has hit the racks last Friday.

Sneak peeks in snapshots were made available via instagram @queenbels, Facebook page and Twitter before the shop catalog was updated officially.

The emphasis is still very much on quality; use of good quality fabric, excellent sewing workmanship and the cutting. Wearable classics is a trait of Queenbels. I believe in putting money on versatile classic pieces with clever integration of current trend but not on one-season trend. Regular shoppers at Queenbels identify and appreciate this mission statement.

My Dainty Lady Peterpan Collar Flare Blouse in Pink/White

My Dainty Lady Peterpan Collar Flare Blouse in Blue/White

Apparels with the peterpan collar make a comeback this year. In fact it made its presence late last year with the invention of fake collars and revolved into collar necklaces. My Dainty Lady Peterpan Collar Flare Blouse is one beautiful piece designed with fitted bodice and a flare at the waist. I recommend matching this blouse with your pencil skirt if you want to add one more pretty outfit to your office wear. If you are looking at wearing this blouse for the weekends, I suggest matching it with a pair of slim demin jeans, a demin skirt or a pair of casual white pants, complete with flats or loafers.

Relaxed Two-Colour 3/4 Sleeves Tunic

Baby's Breath Dress

I introduce tunics in almost every selection. A well made tunic is versatile to wear on its own or with a belt. I like the roomy feel the relaxed fit creates. It is a plus point if there are functional pockets for me to keep the small stuffs while I am on the go. You will love the Relaxed Two-Colour 3/4 Sleeves Tunic and the Baby’s Breath Tunic.

I have also brought in the Nautical Buttons Blouse in stripes; red/white stripes and blue/white stripes. I appreciate how the stripes meet very closely at the connecting seams and from the collar to the blouse, which gives a very neat look. To achieve this, the garment makers and sewers have to pay extra effort and attention on cutting the fabric and to sew very meticulously.

Chiffon blouses are one of our current best sellers. The Mini Pleats Front Collar Blouse comes in three enchanting colours with full inner lining. I love the attention paid to details like the curled hem. And you can’t miss The Passion Chiffon Pleats Blouse.

Meet Andrea, Our New Face Model

Posted on

Meet Andrea, our new face model, looking all stylish in our Dots n Floral Wrap in Vintage Orange. A very pleasant and nice model to work with. My appreciation to her for bearing with the not so comfortable weather on the photoshoot day.

I am naming the brand new selection, PlusThatQ.

Customers and fans of my webstore who have been following since the beginning, know that I had ever attempted to showcase my own designs. I even had labels done. I am no designer, but I desire to have a label I call my own.

Things did not turn out the way I wanted. Samples did not pass my requirements. Nothing turn out right. I am still working towards this project and I believe I will realise it one day. I will name my label PlusThatQ. Guess the meaning behind it?

Dots n Floral Wraps are now available at

Dots n Floral

Dots n Floral Wrap in Pink n Grey

Dots n Floral Wrap in Coral n Green

I like polka dots very much. The wallpaper on my webstore and the hair scrunchies I sewn are in polka dots prints. There is this charm about putting dots of different colours together. You will be amazed and enchanted at the combination you can get.

I myself have a couple of wraps, which is more commonly known as shawls. In the early days it was seen mostly on the outfits of the tai-tais and the more elderly ladies. Now you see office ladies alternating wraps with cardigans in the office to combat the harsh low air-con temperature.

The pieces I have are (surprisingly) not in polka dots prints. They are in check prints, a print I love very much too. It took me quite awhile to put my money on the first piece because I didn’t find it suitable for my age and outfit back then. I was afraid it would make me look old and it was really not very commonly used. But I like the elegance when one is wearing a wrap. The light material that sways at the slightest breeze makes a lady so feminine. Some come with trimmed edges which add a touch of countryside. I bring a piece of these wraps with me whenever I am travelling overseas by plane. The temperature can get really cold when you are thousands of miles above sea level.

One of the well-known casual attire label has special edition collaborations recently and they have a wrap in polka dots print in a very cool colour that caught my attention. That gave me the idea to stock some wraps on my webstore, at the same time to increase variety in the accessories section too. I was very very glad when I saw the above awesome pieces at one of my supplier’s place. The colour combinations and material are exactly what I have in mind.

These Dots n Floral Wraps will be available very soon at
www.queenbels.com.sg

Don’t Miss It.
