HERMES

Stripes and Tweed

August 6, 2014

I am very much into the crop top with flare skirt siluoutte lately. I bought this crop top from Zara a while ago as a motivation to encourage me to lose the post baby weight, and I am so glad I can finally strut it after all the hard work! The tweed flare skirt is from my favorite brand Theory who do the best office-appropriate wear with a fashionable spin to it. Really loving their Fall 2014 collection and this lovely dress is also on the way. (SAKS is having a shop and save event for up to $250 off with code CNTMP14 ). The shades by Thierry Lasry has a lovely translucent taupe frame with marbling detail which is hard to capture in the picture. It is definitely on the higher end of price range for me, but they hand-make the most beautiful translucent gradient over-sized frame and I wanted to take a break from wearing the usual black shades.

Some updates about me

February 25, 2013

Hi everyone, I just came back from my baby-moon to the beautiful Hamilton Island recently, and that is my exciting news to share although I am still a bit shy about it! Yes I am over 4 months pregnant now and that is why I have been absent from blogging as my focus has been strictly on my ever-expanding belly. I am a first timer so everything about being pregnant is exciting and anxious to me. There are a lot of physical changes that I am still not used to, such as being a few dress sizes bigger now, with a rounder face and feeling swelling everywhere else. I am also having extreme fatigue and nauseous everyday. These things do not sound glamorous at all, but as most mums-to-be would know I could not be happier with where I am now!

These pictures were taken at the magnificent qualia resort at Hamilton Island. The beauty and serenity of this place is breathtaking, and is perfect for a private and indulgent holiday.

Leopard Denim

October 9, 2012

The denim trend has evolved from bright and pastel solid hues to intricate and flamboyant printed patterns this fall.  I found this pair of  leopard print Jeans from Zara recently and I believe it was for less than $100! Being quite a Jeans snob, I am surprised how great the fit is. The dark blue hue helps to make the leopard pattern look subtle. To balance the leopard feature, I paired it with an Equipment shirt (which is hands down the best shirt) in a neutral tone for an urban and polished look.

A New DVF Addition

September 28, 2012

Sales are irresistible! I have become so much better with sales shopping over the past few years as I have come to the realization that 90% of the things I bought during sales were for the reduced price tag rather than what I really loved/needed . BUT there is the 10 percent that I’m absolutely thrilled of the “bargain”! In this case – I fell in love with this beautiful printed dress by DVF as soon as I spotted it. I was going to get it at full price anyway, and it slipped my mind when I was overseas. So I couldn’t be happier when I found out this dress was on sale on shopbop after I returned from my trip! 2 clicks + 3 days later, it is part of my wardrobe now. And as usual, DVF dresses fit like a dream.

LBD in leather

September 5, 2012

Still jet lagging and bang – caught flu as soon as I landed. I am still sniffling as I type, but I really wanted to update my blog so I thought I’ll do a quick aka “filler” post. These pictures were taken before I left for holiday wearing my favorite leather dress of the moment. It has a shift cut with the waist slightly tucked in which is a fool proof silhouette for my body shape. I have countless dresses in the same cut, but the fact that it’s in full leather brings a different vibe to the look.

I have been literally living in this pair of jeans lately. They are by far my favorite Jean’s brand – J Brand. They have been consistently making great jeans that have a very good fit in super luxe fabric. The fit of 901 Legging Jeans is perfect for me – it’s skinny from top to bottom, and it’s stretchy without losing its shape. And it’s not the usual boring plain black denim (though I love them as well), they have a real leather appeal with a soft metallic finish. (not as shiny as on the website, but complex enough to have people wonder). If you have been tossing around the idea of having a pair of leather pants, I highly recommend you to start with this one!

The Most Coveted

May 9, 2012

If I could only wear one accessory for the rest of my life, it has to be this one. I want it in every single color and hardware and leather finish!

The timeless Hermes Collier De Chein in the limited edition plum magenta with silver hardware. Oh..I love it!hermes-collier-de-chien-plum-purple-2012I love makeup..but I think for this year I would refrain myself from buying so many of them so I could spend the money on more investment/lust-worthy items that hold their value over time.  How about you ladies, what are you lusting after at the moment?
