Monochrome part 2

When you have no idea what to wear nor do you have time to create an outfit, one of the safest options would be to pick a black and white outfit. Black and white colour combination is recognized as not only a classic but also chic in this modern era.

I have had this dress for years but only started wearing it a couple of weeks ago after rummaging thru my closet! I need to think of better ways to display my clothes otherwise I won’t be able to see and wear some of them. #lifeofashopaholic

The dress is quite girly with the ribbon and frills and so… adding a structured blazer helps to tone down the feminine element of the outfit:)

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

There is something so attractive about red, black and white. It brings certain elegant mood into pictures and I can’t help feeling like I am starring in an old film (Audrey Hepburn wannabe moment? :p). These colour combinations are clear winners when it comes to colour pairing and it is my to-go-to-colours when I have absolutely no idea what to wear!

Believe it or not, this is my FIRST MNG dress that I have bought in Singapore. As a teenager growing up, I have always wanted to lay my hands on MNG items but due to lack of funds (and the fact that I never want to spend my parents hard earned money on myself), I never did get that opportunity. I was secretly envious of my school friends whom bragged about their favourite MNG moments. 

Fast forward down the track, I am now able to support myself financially and still have $$ to spare, I visited just about every MNG boutique in Singapore, in a mad attempt to break this virgin spell. This dress costs me about $SGD 80 and although it had a damaged zip (the sales assistant didn’t want to give me further discounts to compensate for it – it was the last piece in all their stores!), I still bought it anyways.

I wore this dress to a fancy restaurant in Singapore. The velvet, sequin and silk layer (combined with blood red velvet shoes) made this entire look felt luxurious and classy. What more could you ask for? 🙂
