Sales Haul

November 28, 2016

It was quite a stressful weekend for me as there were just way too many good deals to check out! Besides beauty, my orders from Shopbop are slowly arriving. I thought I’d share my first round of haul while the promotion is still on for Cyber Monday.

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.

The second part of my holiday diary (part 1 here) is all about fashion and food – basically two of my biggest hobbies after beauty. I have included my recommendations for some really good restaurants that I had dined in Phuket, and of course some snaps of the new resort wear I added recently.

Holiday Looks

Shopping for resort wear is always my favorite activity to do as part of holiday planning. The anticipation of going on holiday soon as well as having a valid excuse for buying more beautiful dresses always excites me. This holiday, I added another dress from my go-to brand Zimmermann. She does the most romantic and floral dresses with a boho spin, such as this off-the shoulder dress I picked. Also loving this top in the same print.

Hat – Eugenia Kim

Camilla is the iconic high end Australian beachwear label that is stocked in most premium online retailers. Their signature bold prints in silk dresses and kaftans are over the top and dramatic, and goes well with your vacation on an exotic island! The pictures online do not do it justice, as they are so delicate, flowy and looks very expensive in real life. Most of her designs can be worn in multiple ways, and this beautiful Frill Dress I picked (also available here and here in a different print) can be worn off shoulder, one shoulder, or over the shoulders. Again I love anything with a dramatic take on the sleeves this season.

Shoes – here for less than $100 / Sunglasses – Tom Ford Aviator

Restaurants

Trisara

There were two restaurants inside Trisara, The Thai seafood restaurant served authentic Phuket styled Thai food. I dined there twice, and overall the food was great (but did not blow me away as I have very high standards for Thai food) with a lovely posh ambiance, and the service was always top notch. Trisara had another restaurant with a selection of world food over the deck area. The vibe was more relaxing, beachy, and casual with a beautiful ocean view during the day. I really enjoyed dining there as they had lots of choices for western food such as my favorite lobster sandwiches.

Every Sunday, Trisara would host their Sunday brunch which was very famous in Phuket. It was more like a premium seafood buffet that looked amazing. The brunch was extremely popular and normally booked out days in advance, and was open to public.

Some restaurants in Phuket that I highly recommend:

  • Bann Rim Pa – It serves high-end royal Thai food. I found the food style was quite different to the traditional Thai food. Overall the food was lovely, and it was interesting to experience what the Thai royals ate! The place is located oceanfront with a beautiful 180 ocean view, and is tastefully decorated.

  • Bampot – One of my favorite places in Phuket. European and Asian Fusion food with a modern open kitchen design.

  • Siam Supper Club – Another chic place to dine in Phuket. Love the old style New York deco, with soothing Jazz music in the background. If you are bored of Thai food, this is the place to go for some authentic grill and pizzas, and they also had some popular Thai dishes.

  • Raya – I had the best dinner ever!  It’s the place where Thai prime ministers and celebrities go to for the most authentic thai food. The place looked very run-down but was purposely decorated to look vintage. It is located in the old town which was an interesting place to visit in Phuket other than the beaches. Apparently the food was so good that lots of wealthy people in Bangkok would fly their PAs down to Phuket just to buy the takeaways! Highly recommend.

Rag and Bone is definitely my go-to fashion brand each season, as I find their styles are classic, wearable yet with a cool and modern edge that is right on point. Currently obsessed with this ultra cool quilted black bomber jacket made with satin twill. It is slightly oversized but not too much, and the black and white pinstripe trims add a sporty spin to it. It goes perfect with your favorite jeans and sneakers, or you can go sexy wearing a tight dress inside the jacket. It is selling out fast, and there are a few other similar but budget-friendly pieces for under $150 including this one and this one!
