MarcasiteSilver Magic

Hey lovelies!

They say that when you own five or more pieces by a particular designer, then you’re officially a “collector” of that line. If that is indeed the definition, then I certainly qualify as a collector of MarcasiteSilver, the unique line created by Joyce Mak who single handedly designs and sources for the gems on her own.

Rain Earrings and Raw Electroformed Blue Agate Necklace
Blue Turquoise Peacock Necklace
RoseGold Paradise Bird Bangle and ring
London Blue Topaz Necklace and ring
Victoria Ring in RoseGold
Danty Victoria in RoseGold
A unique Jaguar time piece

I got to know Joyce when she did a roadshow at Raffles Exchange and thats also where my interest in marcasite jewellery grew. Marcasite jewellery are classic, timeless and elegant way to accessorize, their style can derive as vivid as the Victorian, Deco and Art Nouveau era.

You sold me a bracelet & ring and thats how we began our friendship journey

What is marcasite jewellery? Marcasite jewllery isn’t really made from marcasite (white iron pyrite) but from iron pyrite, which is less brittle, more durable and has a bright sheen.

They can be mixed and matched in any way for maximum impact to make a fashion statement.

Joyce will still be at Raffles Exchange next week until Friday, do go down and check out the specially curated pieces. Alternatively you can go down to her shop at Mandarin Gallery Orchard #03-21.

Coco Game Center ~ Singapore

Hello Lovelies!

How did you beat your Monday Blues? Well I beat mine by going to the much talk about Coco Chanel Game Center which finally arrived in Singapore and opened its door last weekend at The Luxe Museum.

Entry is by pre-registration here.

The mini box contains 2tokens for the game machines and a ticket for slushie redemption. You get additional tokens upon check-out of purchases too.

Are you ready for some fun? I sure was been waiting for so long. Let the games begin!

Who says a girl can’t have makeup & play arcade games?

With a token in hand we each took a chance with the Bubble Game Machine – with skilful strategy planning we manage to “claw” ourselves the coveted black card bubbles to exchange for a customised fragrance.

After a stressful entrance we decided to take a notch down and play some “mindless” games of pitting each other over a game of tennis and beat the piano tiles (P.S. These are sure wins i.e. as in either you win or your partner wins so you are guaranteed a prize) and won for ourselves Rouge Coco Lip Palette and Primer.

After all that gaming adrenaline rush it was time for us to chill and play with makeup!

Tired and thirsty? Fret not Coco has it all under control – serving you an ice cold mango slushie.

I’m delighted I manage to purchase some of the exclusive limited edition merchandise.

Oh there’s also a tier spending reward – depending on how much you spend you will be entitled to various free gifts.

What are you waiting for? The Coco Game Center Pop-up closes on 6 May Sun! Don’t miss it!!

Have fun!

Monochromatic Monday – Fashion Diaries 

Happy Monday Lovelies!

I love how black and white looks chic, elegant and spells class. Plus it never goes out of style!

The cut-in shoulder blouse has a great silhouette with a fitted bust and goes well with a pencil skirt giving you a feminine yet professional look!

I added black and white patterned shoes for even more of an effect.

Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful week ahead!

Celebration OOTD :: 18th Wedding Anniversary

Today is my 18th Wedding Anniversary, we went Marriott Cafe for a buffet lunch as a mini celebration.  

 
18 years together is no mean fit we had our fair share of fights and arguments. We have been each other’s support as we weather through the storm. We made fond memories, shared good times together, we have a beautiful daughter and a place we call home. I have no regrets, because had I done it differently, I might not have them in my world, and that is not a world in which I would want to exist.
  
I love onesies! They make dressing up a breeze the only annoying problem is going to the bathroom but it’s definitely worth it – just give myself a few minutes headstart to do the jiggly dance and all is good 🙂

   
    
   

Thank you for reading! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

Chic Friday :: Simple Style for a Gorgeous Look 

Hello Lovelies its Friyay! I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend to spend time with my girl. 

Business-Casual “Casual-Fridays” can mean different things to different companies but no matter what the company save those jean shorts, tattered jeans, crop tops, flip-flops and sneakers only for the weekend.

To me “Casual-Fridays” means slightly more casual/relaxed than Professional Business wear but one must still look chic and stylish.

I teamed a solid coloured ankle pants with a bold red checkered top. I have a habit of colour  coordinate my shoes and accessories. For footwear, I wore a pair of red chaine patent flatties which matches my top.

OOTD :: Classic Black Dress

Classic Black Drress

If you’re going for that minimalist kind of look, where you want to look feminine and classic, yet not too overdressed and flashy, then this is a nice approach which I have put together. I wanted to keep it clean and simple, so I chose this cute little black dress from Nanz that I fell in love with when I saw it and paired it with a pair of yellow and black stripe heels to give the outfit some contrast.

Yellow & Black Stripes Heels

Going further along with the contrasting theme, I paired a red clutch to balance out the black and brighten up the outfit a little more. For jewellery, I kept it simple and minimal. And there you have it! 

Accessorize

This is how I would style my little black dress bringing me from work to a night out.

OOTD :: Monochrome Monday 

Saying goodbye to the weekend and embracing the beginning of the work week is already hard enough, but thinking of an outfit that is both cute and comfortable to stand the heat only adds more stress. When I’m getting dressed in the morning and am at a complete loss as to what to wear on, 9 times out of 10 I will head to something black or black and white because they are easy to throw together but still look polished and chic even if you’ve put zero effort in! 

 

Today’s look is a skater dress – skater dresses always have a special place in my heart – they look cute whilst hiding a multitude of bits and bobs that I am conscious of!

  
  
  
  

We finished the look with a pair of pump wedges to amp up the luxe factor!

Black & White are Always Trending

Basic colors ~ Black and white are awlays trending. It is definitely androgynous but yet oh so sexy and feminine. 

  

Monochrome black and white never fails, is great for any day of the week. Whether you are suiting up for the office or for a casual outing you can create multiple looks with this color combo. You could choose to wear your monochrome look in a print, or to colour-block; the options are endless.

  

I don’t often mix prints enough, but I like the contrasting top and the rose embossed skirt combi. I think I have managed to pull it together rather tastefully. What are your thoughts? 

  

Thank you for reading.

White-On-White

Be bold don’t be afraid to experiment with white-on-white. All-white is not only for themed parties and weddings, you can get away with the look at any type of event or even for work. Here’s a few pointers to take note of when putting together an all-white outfit. The crucial element in putting together an all-white ensemble is to clearly separate each piece of the one-color look by wearing different shades of white i.e. Ivory, light beige, cream, off-white etc. Alternatively is to pair with different textures. Wearing all-white gives an opportunity to show off your accessories too! 
  
White will always create a clean, modern, fresh feel. In addition, an all-white ensemble – done right – will always make a powerful style statement. The question is: are you ready to speak?

  
I have opted for a white cut-out shoulder blouse, a off white satin printed pleated skirt and a pair of statement kitty heels.
