Like Morning in Milan


A baby is a bundle of joy. A baby is also a bundle of nightmare. That's what my friends who have just become parents told me, more than once.

Well, I haven't had a baby of my own, but I think babies are cute. Why, even baby stuffs are cute! Though they're not so cute when they cry incessantly, but as a delighted auntie or friend, I coud just simply hand the baby back to the parents, haha! Of course, they always say: "You can laugh now. Just wait until you have one of your own. You will want to laugh and love, but you'll also want to laugh and cry at the same time!"

Anyway, some of the girls at the office are pregnant, and one of them just delivered the baby a while back, so just like the Three Wise Men, we came to visit her and her husband (and the baby, of course), bearing gifts of some baby accessories and baby bottles.




Canary yellow top: bYSI (Singapore). Tank top and gold skinny belt: unbranded. Skirt: old, dunno the brand, it was a vintage find fom Milan, Italy (hence the post title, haha!). Black blazer: my trusty Brooks Brothers Woman. Gold shoes: Yongki Komaladi. Earrings: Pretty (MOI). Necklace: Warna (Gandaria City). Black n white bangle: gift. Bracelet: from Shanghai and a DIY (gift).
Mustard bag: Sogo.
Aaaaand... after visiting the baby and the parents, we made a quick stop at a nearby mini market. My colleague, Eric wanted to buy some biscuit, and another colleague, Fani wanted to purchase some candies. I browsed around while waiting for them, and I ended up buying these super-super-cute puffed-up stickers! It's a bit childish, I know, and I don't really need them. But sometimes when your situation would allow, it's perfectly ok to spend money on things that make you happy. Especially if the thing only costs less than a dollar each!

So I ended up with these three lovelies here...

Closer look...

Aren't they just delightful! I think I'll use them on note cards and other stationeries, and maybe put some on my books and even some on my favorite lipstick tubes and cosmetic case!

Your friends are so right. But overall, babies are great, and so is your bright shirt. I love yellow in so many ways. It looks good on you.
