SHOES

This season my favorite trend has to be the plaid and checks. They are easy to wear, and you can easily incorporate them with the basic items that you already have in your wardrobe for an elevated look. Rounding up some looks that I have worn over the past few months. The Sandro-Paris blazer and the Maje Houndstooth skirt are my absolute best buys this season, as I have been literally living in them and they go with everything.

Recent Purchases

June 12, 2017

Sharing some of my favorite fashion purchases lately including some great sales scores!

When it comes to shopping during the sales season, I tend to buy the item that I had already set my eyes on for a while and they happened to be reduced now – case in point is this super cute and playful Loewe sweater with the house’s famous elephant print. I first saw it on Net-A-Porter as their essential item which means it will never be on sale, and I couldn’t believe my luck that I found it here with 50% off! I am planning to wear it with either a denim skirt or a bright colored leather skirt.

Another favorite item is this Sandro Paris neoprene tracksuit jacket. I am a big fan of Sandro Paris clothing in general, and love the sporty and retro vibe of this jacket which looks really great pairing it with a pair of jeans.

Last but not least, I have been living in these sock boots over the past month. They are by Tony Bianco, super lightweight, affordable and extremely comfy for high heels!

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.

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!).

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.

OOTD – The Flares

April 21, 2016

I haven’t been that excited with new season’s fashion for a while, as I am fully embracing the retro trend from the 70s with flares making a huge comeback. Favorite collection so far is the Zimmerman’s 2016 collection including this paisley necklet top in this OOTD.  As much as I try to add ‘non monochrome’ pieces into my closet, finding a perfect floral top has always been a challenge for me that doesn’t look overly cute, nor too matronly. This top updated with a neck tie and bell sleeves is right on point and tres chic. Pairing it with a cropped wide leg pant, and my go-to Valentino rockstud pump in Noir that literally goes with everything!

Aquazurra is taking the fashion world by storm over the past few years, and is certainly setting himself as a shoe trend setter who is also becoming my favorite shoe brand to collect. I own several pairs of them (see my post here and here), and my newest addition is the iconic Sexy Thing Suede Sandals in nude color (finally!). I love their shoes – they are sexy and young with a chic edge to it (not the usual boring pumps), and are comfortable for heels as they are very lightweight yet sturdy.

This style is the most classic from Aquazurra, and it comes in a rainbow of colors as well as different heights of heels (love this gray pair as well!). Most of their sandals can also be worn as cut-out booties, so they make great transitional pieces to wear into the winter. If I make an investment on shoes, they always have to be work appropriate but also great for styling with causal (off duty) wears and this pair ticks all the checkboxes!

OOTD:

Maje khaki suede skirt (on sale here in Australia)

Saint Laurent Bag (bought here)
