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!

LEATHER FOCUS



Leather is not the most obvious thing to wear in this tropical climate, but with fall and winter collection everywhere, it's hard to ignore this luxurious material. I got this fitted and buttery soft leather top in a pale pink colour, a divergence from the usual black for leather clothing. It may be simple, but it certainly catches people's attention, as I have been asked by a couple of people the first time I wore this. To channel a quiet elegant look, I paired this with a olive coloured pencil skirt. Have a great start to the week!
