A Korean Printed Wrap Top And New Year Resolutions

SAMSUNG CSC

It is the New Year so I will like to spend some time sharing some of my personal stories!

I have loved fashion for as long as I remember. Growing up, my favorite past-time is to go window shopping as this allows me the time to indulge in browsing through the latest fashion items on the racks in department stores and boutiques. Despite being really passionate about fashion styling and trends, I never thought that I will go into the fashion industry as I was taught since young that being an academic is a more practical career choice.

After completing my University and working full-time in the corporate world for several years, I realized that I will never be happy if I do not start pursuing what I really love. Henceforth, I started my first online fashion business with my husband in 2012, with big dreams and passion. However, as we had no experience in the fashion industry and running an online business, we stumbled across many obstacles and went through a really steep learning curve, picking up skills along the way. In the process, we learnt more about our strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes.

It was during this period that, to my own surprise, I realized how much I actually like to blog. In fact, blogging for our online business was one of my favorite activities out of the many duties we needed to perform on a day to day basis! This also explains the birth of this blog, which I see as a creative outlet for self-expression and hopefully, as an inspiration for others as well.

Having shared my humble experience here, this is a question I will like to pose – have you thought of your resolutions for the new year? Personally, I will continue to go after what I love doing for as long as I feel capable and passionate to do so. I also hope to learn how to put less emphasis on the result and focus more on enjoying the process.

Do u have an item in your wardrobe that you will describe as cool and strong? For me, a chic leather jacket will probably fits this description best.

While it is likely to go really well with jeans or leggings, I very much love the look of a leather jacket with a dress. Personally, I felt this combination is a reflection of a woman’s multi-faceted side which include a mix of soft femininity with strong independence. In this look, I paired a faux leather jacket with a striped bandage dress and strapped heels to create a style that is edgy yet sexy at the same time!

Hope you enjoy this post and see you again soon! Have a great week ahead!

Blue Ruffle Sleeves Top And Brick Red Skirt – Photo Diary Malacca Part II

SAMSUNG CSC

Do you prefer a mountain or a river ? When I was younger, I came across a personality quiz that asked this question. The answer that came loud and clear to me was presented as a flash across my mind in the image of a clear and calm river. I have since came to admire the majestic beauty of the mountains as well but was reminded of why I love water when I look at the Malacca River, which cuts across the town of Malacca. There is something so tranquil and serene about this river that put the mind at ease when I just look at it!

The following pictures were taken along or near the river and at the boutique hotel where my husband and I stayed –

A Cute Stripes Floral Dress

Living in Singapore, it can get really hot at times. However, it does give me tons of opportunities to wear lightweight casual basics and pretty summery dresses. Much as I love autumn/winter fashion, not needing to pile on more overalls and accessories (such as gloves, scarves or stockings) does have its conveniences. Having said this, I will be featuring images of a really cute floral dress that is suitable for the humid weather of Singapore in this post:

This lovely dress is perfect for a weekend brunch with family and friends as well as a relaxed and romantic outing with my husband. Being petite also means that I can look more youthful in a cute dress like this!

Hope you like this post and see you again soon! Have a great week ahead everyone.

Contemporary European Fashion Style With Houndstooth Trend

Just a quick post to start off the week!

The Houndstooth trend in Fashion has been ongoing for a while and I have since been exposed to numerous related designs since working in the Fashion industry. However, nothing quite catches my eye like this classy number, which is not only flattering for my petite frame, but also exudes a minimalist elegance. A timeless piece that I adore and am so happy that it matches so well with my new Spiral monochrome hat. Together, a sophisticated contemporary European style is achieved.

Black And White Fashion

I have always love the monochromatic look in fashion. I do adore vibrant colors too, but on days that I am in a rush or just not in the mood to think of what to wear, I simply can’t resist the classic black and/or white outfit. So just a quick blog post to show two basic monochrome designs that will never go out of style and will be suitable for ladies of different figures, including petite women. Here is the first look:

And my second feature is a simple white dress with delightful scallop patterned details at the waist area and a panel cut skater skirt which, by the way, makes me feel like Marilyn Monroe for a moment :)!

What I like about a classic dress is that it is so easy to create different looks with simple accessorizing. If you adore statement accessories like I do, a mono color outfit will be perfect for some creative mix and match.

Vintage Style Fashion

I admit this is not my usual fashion style.

I have this bright candy pink skirt lying in my wardrobe for the longest time and I really want to give it a chance to (hopefully) shine. Also, I have recently fallen in love with hats and decided that my floral scarf sun hat should go quite well with the look I had in mind. And so here comes my latest mix and match inspiration:
 
A basic mono-color white/black top should match easily with the skirt but I decided to go for a more colorful long sleeve top just to try out a new style and be more adventurous. I am quite pleased with how the look turned out as I believe it exudes a kind of English Vintage style which possesses a nostalgic charm.

As I am very petite, I don’t usually wear skirts that go over my knee as doing so may make me look even shorter. However in this case, I think that the high-waist style of the skirt and high heels definitely help to elongate my lower body! Hence if you are petite too but would love to try wearing a midi-skirt, choosing one with a high-waist cut is likely to be helpful!
 
Hope you like this look and will be back with more styling pictures soon. See you!
