Day 1: Kelly Chin

Hey guys, hope your weekend was as eventful as ours! We were lucky enough to be a part of a jungle themed party, and we must say… much has changed since the days of McDonald’s worthy freezer tours! Here’s sharing a few of the many pics our designer snapped of her lovely nephew’s birthday party…
We loved every little detail that went into planning this lucky two year old’s party, from the adorable Madagascar cake by Delectables, to the quaint venue located right beside a jungle gym (Stuff Your Face, fourth floor BSC), to the matching gift boxes for the guests which included a safari toy, cookies, a teeny tiny pot of clay, and a thank you note from the birthday boy. Heck, there was even a local comic artist drawing caricatures of all the guests as bring-home souvenirs!
At the end of the day, the parents were more tired than the kids, but it was all worth the fun and games. Happy birthday!
Peek-a-booooo… We always get so excited when we find hidden treasures amid tons of blogshops and etsy pages. Today, we reignite the love that is Quote Studio, a little known bag brand from Bangkok. We came across them quite awhile back thanks to their S shaped purses, but had let their presence slide ’til now. And wow, have they grown!
Oh, how we are torn between remorse and glee from rediscovering Quote Studio… While our credit cards suffer the demise of their short-lived lives, we do recommend following Quote Studio on their blog and Etsy Shop. Well worth the clickageeee.
This Wednesday, we came across an awesome, easy-to-follow, choker tutorial by Dana Loren of Fenton Jewelry. Featured on Refinery29, this is one simple project you won’t have an excuses to procrastinate trying at home!

With the Resort 2011 collections out and a demure demand for animal prints, it’s no wonder that the lookbooks are teasing our wild side to come out and play. Graphic dots and raging stripes and muted statements are fast approaching a friendly state of mind, far from the cry of gaudy and uninspired – nature is back on the right path, and boy are we pleased!
Gin & Jacqie’s Hotty Anne, Kate Spade Demi flats, Preen cotton animal print dress, ModCloth shoe clip, Tiger phython linked ring by Kara Ross, blue printed scarf from Alice by Temperley
So in love are we with this lust for an animalistic roar that we’ve created two new laptop bags to go with the trend – Hotty Anne and Sassy Anish in leopard print. Both stylish yet functional bags, the leopard print makes a bold statement for the fashionably wild.
To shop these and more looks, head on over to www.ginjacqie.com and get a load off your square shoulders by bagging the wild side!
