Door to my heart

I strive to snap more artistic and creative portrait pictures but at times, this seems almost impossible, especially when I am torn between posing and getting the right angle! I am still working on it and hence, the occasional blurry pictures that appear on my blog. These pictures were taken from my house, in my bathroom to be specific, as I was experimenting with different perspectives to keep you guys mesmerized! Haha ImageImage

I love this pink skirt! I got it for $130 in one of the shops in Rundle Mall and found the cutting to be stunning! If only I could afford more of these gems, ey? Image

When I first laid eyes on this playsuit, I knew that I needed to see it hanging on my clothes rack. My fondness for playsuits are endless and I think they are one of the most versatile and easy to wear one-pieced outfits around. You literally do not need to think when you are in a mad morning rush!

With basic colours such as black, white, blue or nude, it makes the whole dressing process even simpler. Add a dash of prints or stripes and you are ready to meet the world! This peter pan playsuit that I bought from Topshop had the cutest dog prints and with a bow belt attached, how to say no? This outfit sits nicely above my hips and lends me some much needed curves!

Back to business

Monday is here again and I’m sure most of us would like to stay in bed for a little longer. I was no exception to this same problem and found it challenging to drag myself out of my bed. I swore I almost turned off the alarm and jumped straight back into bed. 

This is not my usual work attire (I actually have to wear my work uniform…abit boring but in a way, it does saves me money in the long run), although I do wear a white shirt on most days, alternating it with a blue stripe shirt on some days. These are the shoes that I wear to work everyday and I am trying to hunt down more black pairs of flats despite it being near impossible to find in Adelaide! I can be fussy with shoes on certain days as I can turn into the fashionista monster, rather than the practical being that I should be,Image

To be honest, I am a little irritated with how fast fashion trends change and can’t seem to keep up with it! If you try chasing every trend in the market, you may find that most of the clothes you have don’t agree with you for daily wear and that you have spent a lot of money on things you do not need. Like me for example. I am trying to pass my brand new, never worn before clothes that I have impulsively bought 2 years ago! Grr! Best to stick to what you are comfortable with and perhaps not go OTT with the trends (just in case it ends up in a major fail situation).Image

I do like structured pieces and have to admit that it can make an outfit look presentable with minimal effort.Image

Singing my blues

When the weather changes, what does your truly do? Step out in blue colours from head to toe. I did not get much photos taken as I was in a bit of an errand run but I did wore sparkly blue earrings which screamed attention.Image

Just realized my entire outfit, minus the bag is from Zara. Not only does Zara manufacture excellent quality clothes but also one of the better workmanship that I have seen. Just too bad their clothes are much more expensive in Australia, compared to Malaysia or Hong Kong:(

 

The little black blazer

Most of us should at least have a well-tailored black blazer in our closet. It is, yet another, versatile item that can be worn regardless of whether its winter or spring. And if you do get a really good quality blazer (like the ones from Zara, MNG or H&M – wallet friendly!), it will be your best friend for years!

I have gotten mine during the MNG sale a couple of years ago whilst working as a pharmacy assistant in Malaysia. I was not earning much back then and the cost of this blazer (despite it being on sale) was about RM200, approximately $aud65! It may be a big deal to most of you but for me back then, it costs me 2 weeks worth of salary. And I work from 10am up till 7pm!

So anyways, I bought this blazer and I did not regret it at all. I have worn it on numerous occasions and it has yet to wear off. Fits me perfectly and can instantly glam up any dull outfits! A winner indeed!

 

I am wearing a plain white dress, paired with the blazer and for that extra pop of colour, a neon necklace to jazz things up a lil. Such an easy way to wear the classical outfits, don’t you think so?Image

Karen Millen does carry excellent shoe designs at affordable prices and most of them are quite comfortable (in my opinion!)

Stripes and monochrome, anyone?

My second post on wearing monochrome colours and stripes! I am obsessed with stripes and can’t seem to get enough of it. One of the earliest stripe items that I have in my wardrobe would be a black and white stripe cardigan from French Connection which I have bought about 5 years ago. I am still wearing it up till today as it’s so versatile and matches just about anything and everything!

Fast forward down the track, I have accumulated a few more stripe pieces such as sweater dresses and jackets. A few of my favourite brands have been stocking up on some pretty chic stripe products so why not? The more the merrier ey?Image

Stripe me

Stripes has always been something that I am drawn to. Not only does it look good, especially when you are too busy to browse thru your closet, but it is nice to see so many colours incorporated into an oufit. You can go monochrome for an edgy appeal or be like me, bright and colourful!

I bought this dress from French Connection during their massive boxing day clearance sales end of last year and couldn’t resist the price (think it was about $25? Pretty reasonable for good quality clothing!). Initially, I couldn’t fit into it due to my still-hanging-around winter fats but after losing most of it in summer, I could finally squeeze myself into it. The material is light and cotton-y, perfect for hot weathers and if you want to layer on more outerwears!Image
