Toga Style In Spring

DRESS : Isabelle Blanche // POUCH : Zara // Shoes : Ria Menorca // Earrings : Shein

Toga dresses and tops are pretty sexy styles to work with. Somehow it highlights the shoulders subtly which makes it more attractive rather than a total off shoulder top. Therefore this number from Isabelle Blanche ( available on Style Theory) is a pretty choice for those casual weekends. Need to take it up a notch, then dress it up with heels and a gorgeous clutch and you have yourself a nice dinner outfit to work with.

I love how often toga style outfits would either be in prints or bold colours and this  number in checks and frills does give it a little edgy twist to a standard toga dress.

I paired this look with a hipster fanny pack to keep it casual and closed it off with my favourite go to glitter wedges from Ria Menorca. 

The yellow and black stripe combination is also pretty unique and what better way to accent that colour combination with my matching pair of rectangle earrings in that exact colour.

I hope you enjoyed this Spring look especially for those of you in the tropics or southern hemisphere which you can start trending now where the weather is perfect for such styles.

Styling Polka Dots

Top : Wish
Pants : Stradivarius
Earrings : H&M
Ring : Lovisa // Cuff Bangle : Shein
Heels : Charles & Keith
Hi everyone.

Whilst the festive season is behind us, we are now moving into the Awards Season and perhaps this trend could get you in the mood glamourising good old polka dots.

Not a great fan of polka dots as a pattern, always viewing it as a pattern for young girls and too playful for someone of my age, I thought I would just have some fun before the winter ends to trend polka dots since it was all the rage for Spring Summer 2018. Although I am almost certain this would be a trend to continue way into the 2019s as seen below from Carolina Herrera SS 2019 collections.

This lovely off shoulder number by Wish is such a pretty top that one could easily pair with skirt or pants. I chose to keep it to an easy pairing combination so that many of you would be inspired to style this trend and work with what you may have in your wardrobe to create the look.

Here are also some other polka dot styles you may wish to be inspired with for 2019:

Welcome 2019 !!

Dress : Bless'ed Are The Meek ( Style Theory) // Shoes : Bershka // 
Earrings : H&M // Clutch : Chanel // Ring : old ( similar here)

Hello 2019 !! So, how did you guys welcome in the new year?

Having stayed away from traditional Christmas colours during Christmas 2018, I decided for the new year to showcase this beautiful and classic red Inception dress from "Bless'ed Are The Meek". I love the theatrics of the sleeves and the dress length was just right for me. A classic cut and style, this dress was the perfect New Year outfit for me. Coincidentally, I also found online this similar dress under the label of Elliat which you may have noticed me trending recently ( see posts here & here)

I paired it with glitter shoes and a silver clutch, as well as statement accessories to add that new year glamour touch to the outfit.

What is your new year resolution? 2018 was a tough year for me so I hope that 2019 will bring us only good news. A healthy and happy year for all those around me. Certainly looking forward to a year where I can build on more collaborations and make a change to the world.

Wishing you the very best and a great start to 2019!

Festive Blues

Dress : Elliat ( get it here) // Bag : Dresslily // Earrings : Lovisa // 
Ring : Chanel // Shoes : Saks 5th Avenue 

The last day of 2018 yet just 6 days into the 12 days of Christmas, we prepare to welcome 2019 with a big bang!

Have you made your new year resolutions yet? If you have been following me closely in my blog, you will have realised 2018 has been such a difficult year for me, and so I truly can't wait for the turn of the clock and turn of the luck for me in 2019.

This beautiful dress by Australian Designer -  Elliat was a perfect choice to ring in the festive season. Theatrical, dramatic , whimsical even but with a ladylike touch. I love how this dress flows on me, and the high collar is such a throwback to Elizabethan times where it resonates the feeling of pomp and glamour.

I love the lace bodice of this dress and the slim cut that fans out to a mermaid tale. Wore it without the off shoulder lace sleeves, letting it hang under the arm instead of on the arm. Felt it flattered me more worn this way.

Hoping 2019 will bring me this whimsical and fantasy world with only happy dreams and tales, I wish all of you a great countdown to the festivities for the New Year and wishing you all a healthy and successful 2019!!

It's A Wonderful Christmas Time!

One more day to go before Christmas Day! Are you all set and ready to roll?

Trending several different looks for the countdown to Christmas 2018 ( please check out my other posts here & here) I must admit jumpsuits were certainly not a first choice I would go for, especially for a glammed up evening. However this green jumpsuit I got online definitely had the hint of Christmas if I paired it right. So I threw on an old pair of gold glitter heels, gold accessories and immediately those nostalgic feelings of Christmas started to flow making it quite the right choice as soon as I stood by the beautiful and tall Christmas tree at the lobby of the Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre Singapore.

Sad to say, many businesses here in Singapore, including our main stropping strip of Orchard Road, have gone so commercial during this period and losing the true essence of Christmas in their commercialised, horrendous festive decorations. All screaming sponsorhip  but NOTHING about the true meaning of Christmas.

So boy am I certainly glad to see a large traditional Christmas tree and decorations at this hotel, with presents and snowman at its foot. Things I remember Christmas being about as a kid in terms of decorations and NOT Disney characters! (Yikes!!) The hotel certainly kept it simple with traditional decorations like reindeer, santa claus, bells, baubles and pine cones making it a perfect setup to wow and woo in their guests both locals and international ones alike. For me,  I certainly could not resist taking a few shots for my Christmas memories.

Back to my outfit, this look is perfect with a thicker overcoat for those of you in wintry climates ( how I wish I could have trend it with a nice thick and lush faux fur coat), thinner outerwear for slightly warmer but yet still cool and nippy climates like Hong Kong, Florida and other parts of Asia, and of course going just with the jumpsuit in it's own glamour -  for us here in the tropics.

Enjoy this look and stay tuned for more on my Christmas outfit coming up soon!

Wishing one and all a very Merry and Blessed Christmas 2018!!
