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.

7 Must-Have Shoes

Women can never have too many shoes and men will never understand why. – Susan Gale

I have to confess I am a shoe addict, I would love to have a walk-in shoe closet like Carrie Bradshaw a la Sex and the City. But of course this is real life and I’m no Carrie Bradshaw (don’t have the budget nor closet space for that matter). Irregardless, I believe all of the shoes we own serve a unique purpose – more than just walking around.

In my opinion every woman should have these 7 basic styles of shoes in their closet.

Pump Wedges

Stiletto Pumps

A basic pump in leather is one of the most versatile shoes any woman can own – they will never let you down. They are the LBD of the shoe world. They go with everything under the sun, taking you from work to play. I would recommend investing in two pairs, one in wedges and the other stilhettos to lengthen your legs and make you feel like a Greek goddess.

Ballet Flats

I love heels but I love my feet more, foot doctors have advised not to wear heels daily as they are bad for health. Thus occasionally I will choose to let my feet rest and don on a pair of ballet flats. There is an endless array of choices on style, materials and colours. Ballet flats are so comfy they make you feel like walking on clouds. A good pair of ballet flats will give your everyday dresses and jeans a chic Parisian flair.

Platform Wedges

Ideal for our hot climate, wedges are a more reasonable and comfortable alternative to stilettos. A pair can be great with skinny pants, jeans or a sun dress.
The Ladylike Shoes – Kitten Heels

Every woman encounters a situation where she needs the foolproof ladylike shoe. The height these shoes provide is perfect for those days when you know and want to look feminine, yet have tired feet from wearing sky-high heels all week.

The Party Shoes

Whether you hit the party scene in five-inch platform pumps or diamante sequin high heels, the party shoe is a must have. Every woman needs that special pair of heels for a night out.

Strappy Heels

Slim, strappy high heels are a timeless shoe that will add sophistication to your going out dress plus show off your perfectly pedicured nails.

When the dress lazy and just want to wear a dress that is simple, thats the exact moment in which to choose a shoe with a touch of difference. No need to be excessive, choose the right wood carving or a contrasting color.

Happy Tuesday!

I have been spending the past few weekends preparing for the upcoming Lunar New Year Celebration happening tomorrow.

Feeling chirpy and bubbly I decided to wear a floral print dress with pink lace on the top.

Do you know you can spruce up an outfit to a more corporate look by just donning on a blazer?

Oh I got a new hair cut too – it’s a Chinese custom to get a haircut and new clothes for the new year. The idea is that with a new look, bad spirits won’t recognize a person and follow them into the new year. I don’t know about you, but a little shopping and a brand-new ‘do chase my bad spirits away every time.

Happy Mid-week!

I’m still suffering from a bad flu hope to recover soon before Chinese New Year (is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar to know more click here).

ShenWendysI love skirts with pockets don’t you? The pockets comes in handy not only can they hold your mobile it can also keep your hands warm too when you are in the air-conditioned environment for long.

Happy Wednesday lovelies!

It’s a beautiful day today, sunny, bright and clear blue sky!

I have always been intrigued by drop-waist silhouettes but didn’t dare try on previously as I was afraid it would make me look fat or “pregnant” that is until I found this one! A sweet pink color tone with a fringe hem of contrasting black straps revealed when you swirl or when the wind blows.
