Every cloud has a silver lining

"When the going gets tough, tough gets going."
It's really been a tough week but I certainly hope the next few weeks or months will be better :)
They say there's a silver lining in every cloud and I hope it's true.

Outfits.

I have too many nude pencil skirts and this satin F21 one is still one of my favourite for its fit & gold zip details. White-nude combination is my fav apart from black-red & black-gold combinations.

Here's my new skull gold plated belt and I love how it doubles up as statement piece that you can skip the other accessories.

I was packing for my flea for items and almost packed this fuschia skater-dress in but I decided to remove its tag and wear it. Another dress neglected and after wearing the whole day, I really like its fit and it hides my tummy! The flare skirt part is so flattering.

One of my favourite floral dress that is making its way to flea. Paired with a hot pink blazer to make the outfit less monochrome.

I rarely take pictures of myself in jeans so this is probably the first.
 I have always like denim esp the minis and skinnies. My jeans are mainly from Mango , Uniqlo and River Island. I love Uniqlo ones as they are mad comfty and affordable! For jeans, the fitting is really important as different people have different body shapes.. somehow Topshop jeans don't work for me. I wear Zara pants but somehow their jeans look bulky on me. I used to have 2 pairs from Levis but they don't fit as good right now. Jeans are staple items in our wardrobe!

Decided to throw on my basics - scarf, tank and jeans on a casual friday, such basics should be worn to death! Can't decide between the necklace or scarf so I went with both.

Lunch with my dearest babes that day after work!



Dinner with my fav sec school buddies :)

New aztec clothes for my iphone and make-up from beautyjoint.com .
First time ordering and it arrives within 2 weeks, so fast! I'm loving the LA Pro-conceal (best concealer right now for me) and the NYX hot pink lippie thanks to joy's recommendation. Colour stays on forever I swear!



& I found the perfect studded dress with the gold plate belt as above! wore it to a friend's wedding and i love it!

Will continue to pack for my flea on 6 October & 14 October at Scape, I have too many too many clothes. Most of them are still in bag, things that I like but somehow I have forgotten about them and didn't wear them out. I guess I need to be heartless to decide which to sell to a new owner and which to wear to death. I'm a hoarder so it's gonna be tough but so far, I have filled up two big luggage.
Nothing above $10 I promise :) Details will be up soon!

Celebrating TC's bday in abit !  I get excited over his bday more than my own, planning surprises and executing them can be really fun! :)

Kate Middleton

One of my favourite style icon - Kate Middleton.

I love her for her sophisticated outfits and she is really the epitome of poise & class. She looks flawless all the time in her flattering shift dresses and pointy pumps.. who says safe is boring? Her shift dresses are usually knee length or with sleeves and she lives up to her image as  Duchess of Cambridge. She really rocks her own style without being too bothered by the various fashion critics.
Most importantly, she looks good in everything she wears due to her lean and lanky figure.

Recent Visit to Singapore in a stunning floral silk dress 



Love her in white, super demure and angelic!








 Probably the only person that can pull this outfit off without looking too matronly




In the famous Raoul Shift Dress that is sold out world wide by now.






Another printed floral dress



In a light yellow shirt dress


Other gowns, she looks fab in rich colours!

Saturday

I love my white dresses and this from ASOS is a must have for its rhinestone buttons. That's probably why and how I feel each time when shopping, each piece seems to be same same but different. Bought in Size 8 and it's too big so i did slight alterations to the shoulder straps :)




ASOS dress / ASOS double loop belt / Pazzion flats / PS1 bag

With the girls at the fab SMooch sale, which was a complete sold out from S's tweets. Congrats and thanks for having us! :)
