Black knee length long sleeved beautifully draping "bat wing" dress. This dress is made of comfortable, stretch fabric. It is lightweight and soft to the touch. The boat neckline opens into the loose seamless batwing sleeves that show off your collar bone. It comes with a matching black fabric sash that ties around the waist many times to flatter your waist. Fit's loosely on the body, but is cut true to size. Pull-over style.

Look! put together in this cute, casual choice without even having to try. Finished with girly flutter sleeves. The decadent scoop neck is pintucked to create a classy shape. Add some striking colours, like a scarf, belt or patent flats, to this dark style to really make it pop. Zipper in back. Hit slightly above knee.

This little skirt takes a sassy stance. A wide waistband skims the hips in a skirt inset with all-around pleats for flirty fullness. The pleats flare out and swing when you walk. Side zip closure. Mid-thigh length.

This pleated skirt is also one of next season's hottest looks.

Donate Blood - Save Lives!

Today, I went to donate my blood. The blood donation went smoothly like always. The process is easy, and takes less than an hour. The nurses are gentle, nice and friendly. It was a heartwarming experience. Answering a health questionnaire is the first step. In a brief interview, you will be asked about your medical history. Then, an iron level test. The actual donation process takes about 15 minutes. After donating, you will be invited to enjoy a light refreshment and you may resume your usual routine. I had a cup of hot milo, a bowl of red bean soup and a chicken pie!

As you read this, a patient may be critically ill and his life may depend on whether a unit of blood of the right type is available. Just one pack of your blood can save the life of another person!

If you are healthy, you can donate a unit (about a pint) of blood without harm because a unit is a small part of your total blood volume. Your body will replace the lost fluid within a day, and your bone marrow will replace all of the blood cells within a couple of weeks.

Interesting facts: Do you know???
  • The different blood cells have different life spans — red blood cells last about 120 days in the bloodstream; platelets about 10 days; and the various kinds of white blood cells can last from days to years. Why not donate before it "expires"?

  • You can burn about 650 calories by donating one pint of blood. (Killing two birds with one stone eh?)
Schedule an appointment to give blood now.
"Blood cannot be manufactured. It can only come as a gift from people."

Bracelet Or Watch??

A crowd pleaser style with a twist. These interlocking of silver double links bracelet feature our beautiful kimono fabric interwoven throughout the links. It will definitely look great around anybody's wrist. A beautiful addition to your jewelry wardrobe.

Watch Or Bracelet?

This custom designed one of a kind handmade watch comprised of a decorative flower watchface surrounded by swarovski crystal stones. Lace makes a comeback on your wrist with this watch. The lacy design adds a distinct feminine touch to the watch, playing up its girlish elegance. The watch fits nicely either as a classic snug watch or a “bracelet”. It can be worn with either casual or dressy outfits. Would make a perfect gift for a friend or special someone!

One trend I’m happy to report as a trend across the board is analog vs. digital. Sure, a digital watch may be quicker to read at first, but the classic analog is much more grown up and attractive on any wrist!

Altogether a gorgeous, truly unique, one of a kind piece of jewelry that you will be proud to wear for years to come!

"A watch is more than a simple timepiece. Your choice in wrist wear makes a statement about your lifestyle—more so than you may think."

Pretty Bow - Who Needs It?

"why the women at the store tied the bow sooo perfect! but i had to untie the bow to put it on and off again and how do you tie that perfect bow with 2 loops on top and the ribbon hanging down without it going all sideways and crazy???"
After so many emails about how I tie a pretty, nice and perfect bow, I have decided to establish a video to share my bow tying skills. hehe.

As promised, here is the video for the Pretty Bow...

Making perfect bow is a skill that takes some practice. I hope this helps some of you tie your bows. Practice it now!

Share Your Photos Memories

Cute lil Girl

These are so much fun to wear! These pairs feature a cute little girl in kimono. They are simply toooooo cute to be missed. The diameter of each piece is approximately 1.5 cm, attached to surgical steel earring posts.

PS: Each piece was 100% made by me. To make each one of these is actually quite a time consuming process. However, it's all worth my time and effort when one admires my piece of work. :D

YOU Have Made It A Success !!!


We were delighted to learn about the overwhelming customers' response to our International Women's Day Promotion. We genuinely appreciate your enthusiasm and support for us.

Due to an overwhelming response to this promotion, Mommy, alone, was having some delay in attending to some of you. She was making her every attempt to serve you to the very best as soon as possible.

Once again, we appreciate your business and would like to thank you for your patience and understanding.

50s Boned Bodice Tube Dress

Bold and sexy! This dress is unbelievably gorgeous. It comes with a matching belt. Boned bodice. Hidden zip back. . The cut is ultra-flattering, and the material is of wonderful quality; a nice multi-colored vertical stripes cotton.

Fit-wise, the skirt flares out just right without the need for a petticoat. The top fits in nicely. Whereas some strapless dresses are very loose and “swimmy” along the bustline, leading to that awful “when are my […] gonna reach out and touch someone” feeling of insecurity, this dress follows the female shape perfectly!

Monday, March 3, 2008 Belts

These belts are updated version of Japanese obi belt, a traditional Japanese belt (or layers of belts) worn over kimonos. The belt is meant for decoration, to keep the kimono robes in place, and enhance the body shape. I have adapted them for the modern women! They are easy and comfortable to wear. They can really give an outfit that extra wow factor and individual twist. They look great with this in long style tops or dresses.
