From tonight's launch… 🌺🌺🌺
Loving the hi low hem of this pretty stripes piece.
We have it in a blue base with white stripes, and white too!
Comes with a super cute tie back design! 😍
I also wanna share with you guys the visuals we got from our photoshoot last week. But first, I need wifi to download them because my data plan has been bursting every month.
Reason being, I have to go on 4G even at home. Because my room is the furthest away from the modem, my connection is extremely shitty. (Which is absurd because my house is not even big??!) And your girl here has no patience so I rather switch on my 4G unless I'm watching Netflix hahaha that one really cannot 4G.
I think the problem should be easily solved by getting another router or some shit but I am just so lazy to go figure out all that.
*Meanwhile, my data plan continues to burst*
Sigh. First world problems, really.
Otw to my baby niece Chloe's full month party and I'm so excited hehehe. Can't wait to see her and poke her little cheeks and caress her all over!!
/creepy aunt alert
Did a newborn shoot for her a couple weeks back, but I don't think I've shared the shots here yet.
Baby Chloe at 14 days old. 😍😍😍
It was my first newborn shoot and honestly my experience with such a tiny being is very limited.. So we were a little flustered when it came to handling her. Lol. Good thing my cousin brought a lot of props for the shoot and made my life a lot easier.
We thought it was gonna be a quick and fuss free shoot but obviously it turned out the other way. Haha. Babies are fussy and uncooperative little things. 😂
Like a boss. 👶🏻
We got daddy to hold her for a few shots.
Her expression looks so comical here!
Behind the scenes – we actually had stop for feeding time + burping time. Lolol.
It was quite an experience!
I think it's especially amazing since I got to document little Chloe from bump to baby. ☺️
Bullied by her dad. 😂
My favourite photo of the lot!
Okay finally got around to downloading these from dropbox..
I LOVE LOVE THE COLOURS IN THIS SHOOT!
These photos would be much nicer in their original dimensions instead of a square, but gotta make do since Dayre only allows squares la huh.
I visualised a lookbook with strong, vibrant primary colours.
We bought a whole lot of fruits and veggies for this shoot.
I went to the wet market early morning and asked for watermelon slices. 🍉 Initially the fruit stall uncle told me they only sell whole watermelons… But I told him I needed them for photos (in his mind he prob didn't know what I was talking about 😂) but he relented and helped me chop them into quarters eventually. Lol.
"Val did you eat breakfast?"
"No I didn't.."
"Good! Can you eat the watermelon please?"
Good thing the watermelon was pretty sweet!
You guys knew that there would be a pineapple somewhere, somehow right?? 🍍
It's the same dress I wore in my previous post, except in yellow!
The resort vibes are strong with this one. ☺️
My favourite set (and dress!!!!) from the photoshoot has to be these.
Some grapefruit fun~ 🍊
Was contemplating if I should get oranges or grapefruits. Glad I got the grapefruits in the end cause the coral colour is so gorgeous on photos! 😍😍😍
We had a tough time getting good poses with the grapefruits because it's so difficult to pose with two grapefruit halves 😂😂 but I'm glad they turned out fab nonetheless!
These colours look so so cute together!
Honestly, this shoot turned out way better than it was in my head. I'm so heartened. 😌
I thought our last shoot went extremely well but this trumps all the shoots we've had so far.
The team was great, weather was awesome (heavy downpour only came once we packed up), and location was perfect for the concept I had in mind. 🙏🏻
Launch is up, you guys!! ✨
Thought I should complete posting for all the sets we shot that day.. I'm absolutely shit at keeping my momentum on Dayre these days.
There's always something distracting me or occupying me and I end up having to wind back time. 😔
But better late than never..? Hehe.
Anyway, it was such serendipity that we managed to find this fruity wall mural. So in line with our photoshoot theme! 🍎🍊🍍🍋
Bell peppers for you?
These ended up as our dinner that night. My mum stir fried them with mushrooms and chicken cubes. Lolol. 😂 Waste not!!
We were walking all over with a basket of fruits and attracted plenty of curious eyeballs. Good thing no one came asking if we're selling the fruits. 😂 That would have been really epic though!
And the pineapple makes another appearance!
This was a one shot wonder. No pineapples were harmed in the making of this shot. 😂
In case you're wondering, all accessories (earrings and shades) featured in this shoot will be up for sale on #TTR as well!
Hehe I can't wait to wear this wrapped beauty out already!!!
And the last set – lemons!
We bought 15 lemons for the shoot and ended up having lemonade/lemon infused water/honey lemon for the past week and counting. 😂😂😂
This cute little striped dress will go up on sale this weekend!
We got so lucky that day – saw a vintage vespa parked at the spot we wanted to shoot at. It goes so well with our props and the whole backdrop! ❤️
It's been close to two weeks since we've shot this set but I'm still super obsessed over the visuals. 😍😍😍
Can't wait for our next photoshoot already!!
