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

ShenWendys_BlackHeels_Sparkles

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

ShenWendys_Blue_KittenHeels

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

ShenWendys_GreyDiamanteKittenHeels

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

ShenWendys_PinkStrappyHeels

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

Artwork Heels

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.

ShenWendys Eclectic Guide :: Playing with Scarves


ShenWendys

Ever wondered what you can do with an ordinary scarf? I love to wear scarves! There are numerous creative and fashionable ways for you to use scarves to add punch and color to your everyday look.

You can buy scarves anywhere…Takashimaya, Isetan, Accesorize, Robinsons, flea markets, or you can even raid your Mom or Grandmother’s closets (as you have for vintage handbags and jewelry). There’s no need to break the bank to add a little pizzaz to what you are wearing. You can spend anywhere from $5 upwards to say $500 or more.

Now, how in the world do you use scarves really?

You can wear it as a top paired with a black pencil skirt or a beige flair skirt

As a long maxi dress

ShenWendys

As a choker necklace or necktie to jazz up a black top

You can use it as a belt to jazz up an outfit

It can even be a mini-tote bag to bring out

Another favorite of mine is by tying a scarf around my handbag! You can either tie a simple bow or wrapped round one of the handles!

Transform it into a Kimono for your daughter’s school functions such as “International Friendship Day” or “Racial Harmony” where they are encouraged to where a traditional costume from another country.

Other ways to add scarves to your look, is to wrap them around your head. I’m not a fan of this look, so have chosen not to add a visual to this post. Don’t get “tied” down by any one tie or look…find the one you like most, or a couple that works best for you.

Spring Florals :: Skater Dress

Happy Birthday Lovelies! Today is the 7th day of the first month of the Lunar New Year known as “Ren Ri” which literally means “Human Day” ~ everyone’s birthday. The Chinese legend has it, the Goddess Nüwa created the world. She created animals on different days and human beings on the seventh day.

One of the traditions is that on this day, we have to eat a dish made out of 7 types of vegetables (Xiao Baicai, Nai bai, Leek, Fu kwai chai, Kow peck chye, Yau mak chye, Kai lan). It is believe eating this dish brings good luck, makes you look younger & prettier too!





This is one tradition I will dutifully follow every year!

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.
