A Little Red Never Hurt Anyone

A little pop of colour never hurt anyone especially if it's RED!
Definitely one of my favourite colours of all time.

I've never been much of a minimalist or 'monochromist' (haha I made up that word)..but
I do dress to my own interpretation of minimalism from time to time.
I'm usually more of a print/pattern person though I do agree that one cannot do without trusty basics.

I appreciate the minimalist style and I really enjoy seeing local fashion icon and fashion designer Yoyo Cao's interpretation of that style through her instagram posts. 
I love that she doesn't only stick to the usual monochrome palatte but injects colour and textures to her outfits while keeping the overall clean and simple lines.

Today, I'm wearing a red eyelash lace dress from New Dress.
What attracted me to it was its square neckline and sleeve details and since I already own quite a number of white and black lace dresses, I decided to try out a red one this time.
For this outfit, I wanted it to be a good mix of tough and girly so I paired it with a pair of black boots. I felt that the flare sleeves lent a bohemian feel to the dress and added a black floppy hat and completed the look with a belt to define the waist.

Boots: H&M

Have a lovely day!

The Shoulder Edit

I've always enjoyed reading fashion blogs/ magazines online and many of the fashionistas 
I like have all embraced this style for the summer season!
I've also been following Zalora's online fashion magazine and I really agree with the statement 'the shoulder is one of the slimmest parts of the female body'.
It definitely falls into the 'must have' category in my closet!

Good for you if you've been blessed with a slim waist or legs and can flaunt them with mini shorts/ midriff baring tops,

I think this off-shoulder/ shoulder baring tops are one of the pieces that almost every female can carry off cos they show off the shoulders and collar bones.
Though this style is not a new trend but it's been gaining popularity 
and I can totally understand why.
The pairings are almost endless!

In this post, I've decided to juxtapose a feminine lace off shoulder top with an equally popular ripped boyfriend jeans.
I've chosen to wear a pair of cross strap heels from Charles & Keith and completed my look with my Alma BB for that perfect mix of feminine, edgy and street chic.

Guess what?
we headed to the highly acclaimed Lady M for some tea after our little back street photography jaunt.
Look at those amazing berries!
The place lived up to its reputation for good sweet treats but was a tad pricey..nonetheless, it's a lovely place to spend the afternoon. 

Some other outfits sporting this off/cold shoulder trend:

1) Feminine pairing with this pastel pink culottes from FashMob,
nude Varina flats from Salvatore Ferragamo and rose gold clutch 
for a weekend brunch date.

2) Fringe Lace Skirt with a cold shoulder top and 
pops of orange for accessories for a casual dinner date

3) Edgy X Feminine pairing on the streets of Bangkok.
Kept cool with this floral cold shoulder cropped top from Love,Bonito
and white highwaisted ripped boyfriend jeans.
Completed the look with gold accessories c/o O'oro Accessories.  

Which one is your favourite? :)

With the ever humid climate on our sunny island, 
this fashion option is like a God send!
It not only helps us beat the heat, it also allows us to stay chic at the same time.

Have a fantastic day ahead!

SUMMER'S EVE - 'Say YES To Sexy' Campaign

In May, I had the opportunity to take part in the film production of the Summer's Eve #SayYesToSexy campaign!
I joined many other bloggers for this filming session and we spent the day doing takes and getting to know each other.
It was my first time being a part of a filming session like this and I must say,
though it was really tiring, it was a very good experience! :)

The theme of the day was pastels and we were asked to wear something we would wear for a girls' day out so I chose this mint green floral cold shoulder dress from FashMob.  

The production team hard at work, making sure everything was in place and the opening scene looks awesome before actual filming started.
They were there before we all arrived, and stayed later than all of us to pack up after a long day of filming..
Kudos to them for all their hard work!

Here with some of the beautiful girls I met on the set :)
From R to L:
Kaiting, Dawn, June(Top), Me & Anico

Snapped some behind the scenes from this particular scene,
Magic Babe Ning is so professional!
She had to kneel there so many times for the different takes and she did it all without any complains.

Here is a scene with Silver Ang, Alene, Gin & Dawn

La Fleur de Nuit

  Evenings after work are best spent with those close to heart.
You can just be yourself without the need for incessant chatter and small talk, 
simply unwind over a cup of coffee and some magazines at your favourite cafe.

On this summer's evening, I've chosen to don this monochrome floral midi dress for our little cafe date.

A signature item never gives itself away.
It's timeless.
It transcends fashion.

- How to be Parisian Wherever You Are

I have a penchant for moto jackets, I absolutely love them for their versatility!
As much as I like coloured moto jackets, I think having one in black is a must. 
It's classic, timeless and can be paired with so many different outfits.

I've brought this particular piece with me on so many of my trips, it has become my 'go to' piece when it comes to choice of outerwear.
Of course, knowing me I'd usually bring more than one piece of outerwear depending on the climate of the country I'm travelling to.

Unfortunately, the weather in sunny Singapore doesn't really allow for us to wear much outerwear, even less of leather ones but that doesn't hinder my love for them.
So every time the weather is slightly cooler, you can be sure I'll be taking my chances!
I'd definitely classify this moto jacket as my signature item ;)

[OUTFIT] Romantique

July, the month where Summer is in the air and pretty flowers blooming in its full glory.
Imagine what a joy it'll be, taking walks along the Seine in Paris or St. James Park in London admiring these lovely sights. 
But I'll always be a romantic at heart.

In this post, 
we attended a friend's wedding lunch so I wore this beautiful cocktail dress with intricate lace details paired with nude coloured lace peep toe heels and gold toned accessories to keep the look classy and feminine.
I wore my shoulder length tresses in a simple braided side bun updo for a romantic touch.

Gold accessories are my favourite,
they never fail to add a touch of luxe to any outfit.
When I saw these babies in Paris,
I knew I had to bring them home with me!
I love Ferragamo's signature bow designs,
they're such timeless classics.

Alex found this photography spot and suggested taking some photos here,
I really like how the photos turned out!
This place looks so serene.
I'm thankful he's so supportive of my hobby :)
I'm glad to be able to enjoy this moment of serenity with him in a bustling little metropolis we call home.
