my maudlin career.


  • houndstooth-collared jacket: thrift store
  • off-white puffy chiffon shirt: thrift store
  • rust suede leather shorts: vintage
  • camel beret: ebay
  • brown leather belt: vintage
  • tribal paisley scarf: Forever 21
  • lace-up peep toe wedges: Miint
  • trapeze brown slingbag: Arena Experience

First of all, I have to warn you that this post contains tons of images. Number two... look ma! No black! Haha. Okay. I'm lying. There's a few black on some parts of the scarf. Well, only a few... =P
Oh.. I love these shorts! They are prominent part of this outfit and actually look more orange-ish in real life. That's why I wanted to keep it striking so I made them playing with neutral shades combo. What I love about the shirt are the fatty sleeves! They're so... puffy! Yaaaaaaay. Also, I'm back with my signature beret hat! =D
Anyway, have you joined my giveaway? If you haven't, join it, pronto, pleaseee! I read every suggestion and I try to make this blog looks better. I really appreciate what you have suggested to me and implement which suits me, my personality, and my blog. Thank you =]

Last, I want to share you some pics that I took at Camera Obscura concert. The show was awesome! I struggled on the front row to take decent pictures. Well, I'm no goody goody photographer but that was the best I could do with 4 inches wedges and between the beetle and the block of taking pictures or singing along. Hahaha. But I didn't retouch these pictures at all except the lighting on one pic of Gavin because it was too dark. The rest, fresh from the camera. Enjoy =D


guess the song? my fave "French Navy" =D

Carey! believe me, she's a hyperactive person! xD

love the green lighting above her =]

duo Kenny and Gavin

mr. guitarist, Kenny

this is the only concert pic I retouched. I wonder why he loved to stand on the darkness LOL

aaahh.. I wish I got a better picture of Lee..

love how the focus changes on this pic, just like the opposite of the other pic above this

my fave shots of Tracyanne. one shot with acoustic guitar and the other one with electric guitar. love the lighting here, too. she's so adorable and her voice is magic!

wait! one more pic as a bonus. this is my fave amplifier on the stage! give it up for Mr. Orange!! Hahaha xD
