HAPPY HOLIDAYS!



It's that time of the year again, when the lunch crowd gets lesser and traffic gets lighter as I drive to work every morning. With less people in the office, I find myself dressing more casual as we enter the holiday season. This lace printed sheer silk dress is girly and flirty at the same time. It was my first purchase from Shopbop about 2 years ago and I have been hooked since. 

I'll be off for a holiday myself, stuffing myself silly with great food, shopping and challenging the ski slopes. In the meantime, have a very merry Xmas. Happy holidays!

SHINE IN CAMO



I'm not one who frequently go for on trend pieces, but I couldn't help picking up this waffle knit camouflage sweater top while taking advantage of a sale on Shopbop. The obvious way to wear this is casually with denim, but I like to make this more office worthy and more fashion editor-ish by pairing it  with a shiny PVC skirt. The look is instantly more polished. Throw in a skeleton cuff and it ups the grown up grunge factor by yet another notch. The weather is turning chilly even in a tropical country like Singapore, perfect weather for sweater tops like this!

WRITE ME A LETTER



White tops are one of the most versatile pieces to have - they go pretty much with everything. I like to look for details that are unusual, like this piece I'm wearing from CK. It has a cape-like shape to it, together with an interesting chinese collar. The back is decorated with origami-like folds that reminds one of a letter. With all those details in the top, I finish off the look with a pair of simple berry colored pants to add a pop of color.

MEET THE MIDI



I never thought I'll want to wear a midi skirt, but seeing how lots of people are rocking it, I succumbed to temptation and got myself one. It wasn't a straightforward decision to make. I was afraid that my petite frame will be swallowed up and lost in the big skirt. However, I took the plunge and ordered a faux leather one online. To save myself from drowning in the big skirt, I paired it with a simple fitted T-shirt with a frill detail to add some fun to the outfit. Finally, I finish off the look with a pair of hidden platform pumps for the extra height! How do you like this look? Have a wonderful week ahead!

WHAT'S UP YOUR SLEEVES



It should be obvious by now that I'm attracted more to simpler styles with interesting details. When I found this blouse on the racks, I was immediately won over by the fur prints on the big lamp shaped sleeves. I was probably doubtful that it will look good on me, as the sleeves are huge and my limbs are really skinny. However, that did not deter me from trying it on and I'm actually quite pleased with how it looks, and it's oh so comfortable too! To balance the oversized top, I wore it with a pair of skinny pants and kept the palette muted so as to keep the focus on the sleeves, but completed the look with these jewel crusted sandals which look dangerous but are in fact super soft and wearable. Perfect for days when you have to run about in humid weather!

THE CHRIS HEMSWORTH DRESS



Sexiness doesn't have to be in your face, and subtle sexiness can be worked into your office attire. Although this vibrant colored dress is of very respectable length, ending below the knee, the sheer silk material hints of what lies underneath as you walk against the light. The slit down the middle flaps open slightly as you walk, revealing some skin and upping the interest factor. Now, you must be wondering why I call this the Chris Hemsworth dress. A few months ago, I ran into Chris Hemsworth in Hong Kong, and took a picture with him while I was wearing this dress. If you're a fan of Chris Hemsworth, below is the picture I took with him (pardon the grainy picture as it was taken with my phone under poor lighting). Have a great week ahead!

A SPLASH OF LEMONADE



This is exactly what this dress and blazer combo reminds me - a splash of refreshing lemonade in the summertime! I love the soft yellow color of this dress, in a very simple cut but with a slight tinge of sexiness. It's perfect for those cocktail or dinner dates where you want to make an impression but not come across as trying too hard. To make it work appropriate, I throw on a white blazer in a similar silk crepe material to keep the whole look light and chirpy. I hope this look brightens up your day!
