If you’re a regular here, you might have noticed I haven’t been posting much fashion entries as I used to do over the weekends. Well, I totally lost interest in fashion for awhile. I was wearing sloppy clothes to work and I couldn’t care less. And the reason? Because I hate how my hair looks now. I had such a bad haircut weeks ago and I’m still reeling from the agony of having to live with it. It totally killed my interest to look good. But I might just have got a bit of my fashion mojo back and it’s all thanks to the new pair of ankle boots I just bought during the week.
Gracie is very intrigued with this Diane von Furstenberg Ready To Go Printed Tote. The moment I got it out of the box, she was sniffing at it non-stop. I’m guessing the leopard chain prints must have roused the animal instinct in her. Well, actually even I couldn’t resist those prints and that’s why I decided to get it even though I promised myself to stay away from tote bags. This is supposed to be a weekend kinda bag but I actually found the prints safe enough for weekdays too. Well, at the least, I haven’t got poached for carrying it around.
I was getting a bit anxious when the shipment for the Whiting & Davis Gattopardo Essential Clutch that I’d ordered was delayed. I needed it for a dinner this weekend and I was definitely not keen to scramble for accessories at the last minute. So when it finally arrived, boy was I glad. But little did I realize that I was in for another battle. This time, it was the battle of the PAW!
The heat has been turning up every day here and today, it’s 33°C. So it’s time for summer wear, although I have to say, we dress like it’s summer all year round in Singapore. But wait, what exactly is summer wear? Something comfortable? Something thin? Or maybe something that bares more skin? Okay, baring cleavage isn’t my kind of thing and so I opted to bare my shoulders—it’s one asset that I can afford to show off. So in came the cold shoulder tops. I love them. I think they’re quite edgy, without baring too much skin in a distasteful manner.
Would you like to wear a chess board on your body? No, why not? It’s really fashionable because the iconic check squares are a big hit on the fashion runway with a myriad of designers offering their take on the monochrome motif. Well, if checks are not your kinda thing, then perhaps some abstract graphics, floral prints or ethnic visuals then? One way or another, you’ll need to jazz up your wardrobe with some form of motifs. The idea may not sound exactly appealing if we’re just going by words but check these Compagna collection from Korea and perhaps you’ll be inspired. They’re not your riot-of-color-cry-out-loud designs but each piece has a nice feminine touch that would not contribute to eyesores.
