Fashion

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I had recently spent 2 weeks in Hawaii. It’s one of my favorite holiday destinations in the whole world, and I tend to go there every year! I am still in the process of rounding up my stay there including the best resort to stay at, and lots of great places to eat which will take me a while to publish. Before the trip, I prepared lots of resort wear (you gotta look good on your holiday right?!), and my absolute favorite dress is this most romantic and dreamy LWD by Zimmermann. The details, the cut, and embroidery on the lace, and how it flows in the air – everything about this dress makes me swoon.  I heart Zimmermann’s design as her dresses can be easily glammed up, but with a signature relaxed and beach vibe that gives an effortless look to it.

The New Black

December 20, 2016

I love wearing all black – with updated details and silhouette so it does not look like the average black. Bought this new cute black ruffle top by Cynthia Rowley recently, love the ruffle details as well as the brushed suede finish. It looks so luxe and unique in real life. Also loving this black SJYP pants with side gold buttons at the bottom in a classic straight leg finish (similar pair here by Tibi). It is so chic and is also great for work!

Fall’s Favorite Sweater

November 23, 2016

I wanted to do a sales pick post, then I realised that everything I wore in this OOTD is all on sale now (except for the bag)! Here is another plush and ribbed oversized sweater by 3.1 Phillip Lim that I loved so much in the cold months, and it is on sale on Shopbop since they are offering up to 25% off for all full-priced and sale items with code GOBIG16! Another great pick is my workhorse suede ankle boots from Stuart Weitzman which I swear are the comfiest boots with heels (more comfy than Rag and Bone!).

The Perfect 9-9 Pants

November 12, 2016

This is the sort of outfit that I have been wearing to work lately. I used to be a dress and skirt person, but this year I tend to buy more pants. The Vanessa Bruno flared pants is my favorite purchase for black pants that looks classy, and it would also look great styled casually. If budget allows, I always buy designer pants because their tailoring is incomparable – just like a well-cut jacket as it just fits perfectly like custom-made, and the fabric is flowy and weighty and hardly crease.

Sweater Dress

October 29, 2016

The weather is so beautiful today so I decided to wear my new dress from SACAI which is perfect for the Spring and Fall. Love the sweater fabric for an effortless vibe, and the much up-to-date flared sleeves. It’s easy to pull on and looks great for dressing up or down. Pairing the dress with this perfect pair of chelsea boots from Acne Studios.

My Favorite Jeans

October 12, 2016

I am completely on a whim for the new style of jeans lately (bought way too many), and my personal absolute favorite has to be this pair by the brand AG. Have to share some pictures today because they are on sale on Shopbop, as they are doing their bi-annual big event sale with savings of up to 30% off the entire order using code BIGEVENT16. I love the raw hems, and the legs are slim and straight so they don’t make the legs appear stumpy. Since the legs are cropped at the ankle length, the high waist is also great for elongating the legs. Overall I am extremely happy with this purchase, and would highly recommend to anyone who wants to re-invent their denim wardrobe with the new season styles. These jeans run a little small so I would go a size up from your normal size. My other favorite has to be this very similar pair by Citizens of Humanity.

Though the weather is getting warmer in Australia, I couldn’t help but pick up this cozy Acne Studios Deborah Sweater recently as soon as i saw it online. It is oversized, chunky, ribbed with slightly puffy sleeves – it’s such an everyday easy-to-wear style but so-on point with the silhouette. I love it so much that I really want to get the grey piece as well! Size-wise, for a boxy fit or layering, stay true to your size, otherwise go down a size for a more fitted look.
