I’m still on the hunt for a bright blue clutch and I think I might have found a “maybe”. Remember my post on that Celine lambskin clutch pouch that was seen all over NYFW street stylers?¬†I did a quick check with the staff at Celine last week and it seems that the lambskin clutch pouch…

how to carry your clutch

Wearing: striped top and pants by Zara, tan leather satchel by Topshop, heels by Tangs Studio Photography by N. N. and I were shopping for a new bag in town, one big enough to carry all my junk yet¬†asethically¬†pleasing to me and does not weigh nor cost a bomb. That of course has been the…

sunshine in my soul

Wearing: ¬†apricot silk blouse, flower patterned bodysuit and tan mack oxfords from Topshop Photography by The Portist This is the apricot top I was talking about in my last post. Doesn’t the apricot blouse look like the pink Equipment silk shirt I’ve been lusting after? The material feels like so heavenly and I could barely…

that pink!

Pictures by: StreetTonic and Stockholm StreetStyle I‚Äôve never really been one to like girly colours such as pink but I could definitely embrace the soft shades of apricot and salmon pink. While I know neither apricots nor salmons are actually pink, the apricot silk blouse I got from Topshop recently certainly LOOKS like pink. Will…

colour me happy!

I suspect that the slew of Fashion Week street style snaps has rubbed off me somewhat because I’ve been experimenting with colour and throwing pops of colour in my otherwise dull corporate office wear. The other day, I was just browsing at Zara while waiting for N. and I was torn between the black or…

that Celine lambskin clutch pouch

Pictures by¬†Garance Dore and¬†Streetfsn …is haunting my thoughts. I’m eyeing the Celine clutch pouch in cobalt blue which Taylor Tomasi Hill is rocking out in so many street style shots during Fashion Week. the size of the pouch is just perfect to hold some money+cards+lipgloss+keys. too bad the cobalt blue colour hasn’t reached the stores…

first snaps!

You’re looking at my first few snaps of the boy using his camera! ūüôā Initially he was way too shy to be shot but I managed to convince him that I needed lots of practice since I’ve made known my interest in portraiture photography. These are the safe shots. Do you wanna see the funny-faced…

these two stylish ladies: Taylor Tomasi Hill Olivia Palermo Pictures by Studded Hearts and Stockholm Street Style Both ladies have impeccable style and what I love about them is their ability to mix designer and fast fashion brands like Zara and Topshop and look so … original?!! More on Olivia for Tibi soon! Follow my…

a pop of orange!

Pictures by Street Peeper, whowhatwear and Hanneli This post is inspired by a friend who texted me today to say she was inspired by my yellow top post. You know who you are if you are reading this! ūüôā Today, she decided to try out one of the spring summer colours – orange and in…

spring summer colour of the day: yellow

Wearing yellow top from Uniqlo, pony hair leopard skin belt, skirt and ballerina flats from Topshop. Pictures by N. aka The Portist My favourite fashion season of the year is spring/summer. To embrace the colourful, bright and bold colours of this season, I decided to throw on a yellow top of the shade of a…

and then there were spots

I knew spots were coming back when Marc Jacobs covered his entire Fall 2011 RTW Collection (well almost!) with spots and by this I mean right down to the stockings and the berets! And then this trend was¬†spotted (surely there was no pun intended) amongst stylish street wearers… what’s next? Stars & Stripes? Pictures from…

pleated

Pictures from top: whowhatwear, The Sartorialist, Hanneli Mustaparta, Street Peeper Do i sniff a pleated trend going on? Somehow the pleats go better on a full length maxi skirt than on a short one, not to mention more flattering as well. Follow my blog with bloglovin

the staples

Photo by Stockholm Street Style I count a crisp white shirt, ribbed and over-worn pair of denim shorts, Balenciagia giant city, Rayban ¬†aviators and red nails as my staples. What’s yours? Follow my blog with bloglovin

come away with me

Wearing: Checkered shirt, nautical shorts, leather woven belt, over knee socks and clogs all from Topshop, Le Pilage Medium size tote by Longchamp, Gifted Lego Ring. Pictures by N. This outfit shot was taken on an over-cloudy day. Amazingly, there were nobody on the streets when we swung into this cool alley which had stairs…

portraits (secret jungle – part 2)

N. also known as The Portist (the boy loves taking close up portraits) took some shots which I really think deserves a post in itself because he is just amazing and capturing the “moments” . These shots were taken just before we left the “jungle”: Photos by N. Follow my blog with bloglovin

secret jungle (part 1)

Sometimes the best time to take outfit shots is when you don’t plan for one and you just take advantage of the sun decides to peek out and shine in its brilliance at noon day. N. and I love taking pictures with natural lighting and in most if not all of our shoots, we never…

teaser

Remember just a few posts ago, I mentioned N. and I had heaps of fun running around a forested part of Singapore? Just thought I’d share just one picture, or maybe three? More of the pictures coming next week I promise! Wearing: Chanel Le Vernis (Khaki Vert) nails, Geeky frames acquired while Hong Kong street…

living it modern

It must be the combination of lousy wet weather and the weekends because I’ve been staring at Home & Decor sites for the 17 minutes. Currently very inspired by modern living spaces such as these: The Swedish sure know how to make use and beautify every space making it functional and oh-so-livable. The above loft…

currently coverting…

Jane Keltner de Valle Fashion News Director, Teen Vogue’s shoe and skirt collection! I’ve been following The Coveted The Coveteur, the Selby of fashion insiders’ wardrobes for the past few days now and I just gotta post this one cos like Jane, I love shoes and I’m not a pants person but a skirt and…

sheer madness

I’ve been on the hunt for perfect sheer skirts much like the ones I’ve been seeing on the blogsphere. Images by Stockholm Street Style and Street Peeper Follow my blog with bloglovin

the make up post

I have to admit that I’m not good with applying make up but I love buying skincare and cosmetics especially pots of M.A.C eye shadows, their liquid eye liner, concealer and compact powder. My favourite M.A.C product has got to be Technakohl liner in Photogravure which is a soft black liner with brown undertones. I…

new year, new nail polish.

Have you thought about your new year resolutions expectations for 2011? I don’t resolute to do anything because they never get done and its tiresome because you just depend on yourself to get them done. In the coming year, I wish for all the secret dreams I have to be fulfilled. Ooooh and today I…

wear it like you couldn’t care less

Perhaps the new way to wear your coats and jackets is to throw them over your shoulders and wear it like you couldn’t care less or you “just threw it on”. Too bad Singapore is way too warm to be walking around in coats and jackets, then again I am thankful that I’m not freezing…

love is in the air

¬† Atttended a friend’s wedding¬† recently and got a chance to get behind the camera to shoot N. I have more shots of the wedding and the beautiful bride¬†to post the next time. Meanwhile, I’d leave you with many expression-ed shots N. took of me after the wedding. I wore a black dress with black…

meet the portist

Today marks the day that N. starts his blog – theportist I can’t wait to see the lovely portrait shots he will start posting up. Of course I’m entirely biased when I say he’s a talented and fabulously annointed photographer.

sit and watch the world go by

N. and I had our first discussion on our¬†life changing exciting project over coffee at Starbucks. The ideas flowed as freely as the raindrops did that day and it was certainly a day to remember. Sometimes, its really a luxury to just sit at a cosy corner and watch the world go by. At this…

pretty chairs anyone?

Stumbled upon Wonderland – For Detailed Planners and really loving the Tiffany chairs and cushions they offer for hire! They are excellent use for¬†girly parties, baby showers, weddings. Don’t you think the table settings are so lovely and every minute detail seem to be considered. My personal favourite would be the black Tiffany chair with…

street style inspirations

These street style shots inspired me today and I thought I’d share it with you. Throw on a little colour and cheekiness won’t ya? After all spring is coming soon and summer for others in another part of the world… Gah, Alexa can do no wrong. Loving her studded kitten heels from Valentino! Pictures from…

Dress for Less this Christmas + New Year

Am I the only person more psyched about what I am to wear to Christmas+New Year parties and gatherings than shopping for Christmas presents? While trying to shop online for Christmas present ideas, I got side tracked by the latest collections from everywhere! One affordable and chic label would be Zara and this is one…

you make all things new

N. surprised me with the beautifully hand painted masthead done for the blog on Wednesday. So if you love the new masthead that is a mishmash of the very vibrant primary colours, all credits go to N. Due to the crazy busy schedule that I’m juggling at work, it took me awhile before I finally…

just a little bit of leopard

Leopard prints are good when it shows up in right amounts and not excessively so in an outfit. Saying that, it takes some courage to wear leopard prints because you’d either end up looking fab or drab. If you are introducing some leopard to your wardrobe for the first time, try pairing simple, clean cut…

colour me blue

No prizes for guessing that I love wearing black. Electric blue, however, is my favourite colour. Not baby blue but it gotta be electric. I promised to show you the steady stash of clothes/shoes I racked up at Topshop recently, so N and I decided to put on our Saturday best and head outdoors. Funny…

Less is more

Better than a stylish woman is one who has a dewy fresh complexion. Always a good reminder to love the skin I’m in. All photos by Hanneli , the amazing model, fashion photographer.

oh olivia!

I’ve always been sorta watching Olivia Palermo’s style and she is ALWAYS impeccably dressed, hair in place, stylishly dressed no matter the occasion and setting with the most beautiful accessories. So when I saw this image of her (above) in The Sartorialist, I decided to find more information of this socialite/actress and compile my favourite…

Topshop/Topman Autumn Winter 2010

These pictures are way overdue but I promised that I’d show you a sneak peek of what took place at the Topshop/Topman first anniversary fashion party on 1 Oct 2010. I must admit I had shopped up a storm and grabbed a whole lot of Topshop merchandise a few days before the party and I…

jet black

Black – my favourite fashion colour On days I don’t have much inspiration, I pull out this particular pair of skinny jeans which I probably have worn to nothing-ness. The fabric is of a stretchy denim which makes it really so comfortable to live in. I’m thinking of distressing it and shredding parts of the…

SUPER-SIZED Gent from Swatch

Oh! Swatch is releasing a new, super-sized version of their original Gent watch. The collection for Fall boosts 10 colour combinations but what caught my eye is the black on black and white on white tones. It’s quite simple yet unique and easy on the pocket at only 50 euros. I’m getting the black from…

Back on track!

I’ve been missing in action because I’ve been hit by a naughty bug that refuses to leave so I’ve been coughing and sneezing away for the past weeks. I’m finally better and happy to announce that I’d be going to the TOPSHOP/TOPMAN 1st Anniversary Party at ION Orchard this Friday, 1 Oct 2010. Something to…

dim sum

classic shirt

GAH! Seeing Garance’s latest post on that delicious pink washed silk Equipment shirt makes me wanna get one right..now. It is definitely a wardrobe essential. I have been on the scout for the perfect classic silk see through shirt but I have so many expectations of it. 1) It has to be a classic cut…

secret garden

The boy and I went to a pretty garden and caught the most beautiful afternoon sun ever.¬†It felt like we were bathing in warm sunlight as N. took the opportunity to snap away. I think I’d let the pictures do the talking today. Wearing black leotard top from Topshop, black floral skirt and tan leather…

gold buttons + silver studs

Sometimes i can’t decide if i prefer gold or silver and but on one particular morning, i decided to go with both in a single outfit. Most times, I prefer silver hardware for my bags and gold on certain accessories. The gold colour I feel, adds a vintage & classic feel to bags and accessories…

weekends

Weekends are so precious. Especially the ones when I do not have work commitments and¬†have the time to wake¬†up a little later, snuggle under the comforters for a wee bit longer or¬†simply read a book or my favourite fashion blog and go for a nice leisurely jog or talk with my favourite sister. Listening to…

“Fashion is about going ahead, not about memory.”

Karl Lagerfeld is a genius and in my humble opinion, a non-conformist. Just take a look at his amazing Chanel Haute Couture Fall Winter 2010/2011 collection at Grand Palais: His collection of stunning proportions (short over long, cropped jackets with elbow-length sleeves and high-waisted, to the knee skirts) gives a sense of¬†utilitarian¬†boldness and severity. Those…

once upon a Sunday

N. and I found a really cool spot to shoot on Sunday and decided to take full advantage of the lovely sunshine! On a separate note, I’ve been trying to grow out my hair but its been quite frustrating. Wearing American Apparel tee, Topshop maxi skirt, buckle leather strap satchel and sandals.

this pretty much sums up the lazy Thursday with N.

Change

I’m sitting at Coffee Nations, a quaint and cosy cafe along North Bridge Road and enjoying a good cuppa with N. as i type. I’ve been contemplating or sorts of change with N. and I’m pretty excited. If you have been following this blog, you’d remember I always wanted to get a DSLR to start…

The Black & White Post

The black & white combo or all black or all white colour always appeal to me. Clothes, Shoes, Accessories, photographs, Decorative pieces look particularly enticing when in their monochromatic family. In fact, black & white doesn’t even count as colours. I am all for colours, I love rainbows, bright burst of yellow or red in…

back to basic black

Every now and then, in between work madness and lunch breaks, I take a breather and catch up on ¬†my fabulous collection of fashion juice and news under the “Favourites” tab and stop to marvel at the beauty in this world. Black is such a basic,bland colour but it never ceases to be one of…

Victoria Beckham Gets “Domesticated’ in US Glamour March 2010

What a pleasant surprise to see Victoria Beckham all¬†decked out in tee and jeans¬†on the cover of¬†March issue of US Glamour magazine. It did a pretty interesting feature too! I always respected the lady in the way she carries¬†herself, always looking impossibly immaculate. I can only¬†imagine how¬†much discipline and self control she has¬†to look this…

Teen Vogue – fashion cliques
