the beautiful matrimony of S & S

Photos by Nicholas Teo These pictures sum up the glorious day when two of our good friends got married. It was a sweet and beautiful day graced with perfect weather with beloved family & friends who love the couple and it was surely Jesus who was present and very much in our midst that special evening as I…

Bangkok Diary

Photography by Nicholas These are the pictures from my most recent trip to Bangkok, Thailand in March. I have been putting off this post because I wanted it to be purposeful and not just an “update” of one of the most memorable happenings in my life. This trip marks one of the many firsts – it…

take the plunge!

Photography by Nicholas Teo This is what I wore to D&D’s wedding. The dress is a simple one that hugs close to my silhouette and floor skimming. My favourite attribute of the dress must be the bare back. I would have gone without a trace of accessory if I could to punctuate the look. The…

wet weather wear

Wearing Topshop dress and leopard printed belt and Zenith nail colour & Zara V-neck cardigan Photography by N. When it rains…this is what  I do. Pile on the layers and take outfit pictures indoor rather than outdoors. The Zara v-neck cardigan is snug and keeps you toasty warm and my “go-to” item when its chilly. Right now, I’m…

dressing for the woods

Wearing: Forever 21 military tee and Topshop denim cutoff Photography by N. The weather has been increasingly hot and humid and my weekend “uniform” is comprises of cotton tees, tiny shorts and topknots. I got this pair of frayed denim shorts from Topshop a few months ago but never really got the “weather” to wear…

one year and counting!

This is gonna sound like an awfully mushy post but it really made my day. I could never get used to receiving surprises from N. We celebrated our first year anniversary on Saturday but today marks the day our relationship turns one year young and i always hope our romance will be young, full of life…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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.

dim sum

sorry for the lack of updates! I’ve been overseas the past week and came back to mad rush of work to be done. finally i have abit of time on my hands to blog the amazing dim sum brunch N and I had. dim sum is my favourite food and I think Hong Kong has…

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…

Herve Leger by Max Azria SS09 Swimwear collection

Herve Leger did it again. He doesn’t just design ultra sexy, body hugging, colour block dresses made for goddesses, he designs the most flattering swim wear too! Herve really knows how to bring out the sexy in women, accentuating curves and bringing close attention to the shoulders, V of the abdomen, collarbones. Dare I say, its quite the va va voom on…

Stella McCartnery Spring 2010 Collection

I’m in love with Stella McCartney’s cruise collection otherwise known as her Spring 2010. It’s not too crazy and definitely wearable and I love how Stella used bows to create that finishing touch to some of her outfits. And the creative use of colours (gold, blue, green, yellow need I say more?) lace, sequins, stripes,  checks,…

I am a freelance stylist and me thinks its the best job on earth, so far I’ve done a few assignments for friends who approach me to revamp their wardrobe/ invent a new work wear wardrobe/ look for outfits for special occasions. Some of the reasons they approach me for fashion advice: 1) Lack of time due to busy…

Recessionista Chic?

While loading up on the usual fashion juice, I chanced upon Steven Miesel’s  “2 for 1 special” photo spread. I simply LOVE how the images juxtapose ordinary life against the glamourous world of fashion. Notice the use of dual tones used in most of the structured dresses. It screams understated elegance and glamour all in one with hints of…

How many Hermes Birkin bags do Victoria Beckham own?

…Countless. One of my favourite people to observe in terms of style and awesome hairstyles is Victoria Beckham. I know of many friends who frown upon hearing her name saying she’s too skinny and unhealthy looking etc. However, you can’t deny that the lady’s got style. Known for always being put together and immaculately dressed for the occasion, you’d almost…

Vogue Germany 2008

I am loving the dresses and the spread in Vogue Germany 2008. Aren’t they simply breathtaking? The dresses were captured so beautifully, some in motion and some stills. These could really pass off as oil paintings, no? I can’t decide on which dress i like best – if i had to pick one, it would be the 6th (engine…

The high waisted skirt is one of the must-haves in my opinion, and it is so HOT this season. if paired with the right top, it not only bring out the womanly curves you have, it slims you down! not to mention, it adds a certain glamourette factor to you. just some tips before you rush out and…
