H&M x Clozette | Fall Fashion Lookbook 2016

September is a month that I’m excited about. Apart from all the Fall Collection that’s coming out, what makes it special this time round was that I’m part of it. For some, you may know that I used to work in H&M, hence this particular project has a special place in my heart. I’m so ever grateful for this opportunity and before I jump right in, I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Clozette and H&M!

To kick-start this post, here’s an interesting quote. “SHE is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future”. This year, H&M’s Fall Fashion Collection is more than just another collection. There is a strong social movement campaign behind it (#Ladylike), bringing awareness of Gender Equality and Female Empowerment to women and girls like you and myself. A lady/woman CAN be #Ladylike in so many ways! Such as feminine; badass; powerful; fun and etc.

Personally, #Ladylike to me is being confident about who you are. We ALL have our own insecurity (even me), but that’s alright because confidence can be built. There are many ways to build confidence. As for me, I love dressing up. I enjoy being able to dress and look differently such as preppy chic today and edgy on other days. Dressing up allows me to present myself in a specific way on a specific day, kind of like makeup.

I was invited by Clozette to be part of this campaign where I’m dressed in 2 looks. From the moodboard that I was given, the women look strong and powerful, and that’s exactly what I want to portray in my shoot. I also made sure I was having fun at the shoot. You bet I did.
In the first look, it has more feminine and fun factors to it. Definitely a look I would wear! I love the turtle-neck as an inner piece because it brings out the fun polka dot. The finishing accessories such as the beret to the socks and boots are “Fall” perfect. From the lookbook, I believe you can tell I was having fun. Can I also point out how that big pair of earrings surprisingly manage to add a subtle touch to the outfit. It’s an outfit I would like to go around town in.

For the second look, it screams cool, boss and chic. I never knew that adding a big scarf to a black maxi dress could instantly look that cool! I believe feeling confident in what you wear can really bring out the look even further. So ladies, don’t hide behind all those fabric. Instead, wear them and rule them!
I had so much fun at the shoot, I wish I could do it over and over again! In fact, everyone was having fun and the beautiful Clozette team was even dancing to the background tunes. I on the other hand was trying to keep my cool persona at that point.

After the shoot ended, I’ve also gotten a chance to style my own take using the Fall Collection items on a mannequin! Based on the allocated 2 looks and my styling take, you can see that H&M Fall Collection is very versatile and wearable. 
Also, good news! H&M’s Fall Collection is NOW available in store so do head down and join me in the #Ladylike movement. Here’s how:

The Peach Box Of Style

Jewels from The Peach Box

I’ve style this two beautiful pieces in two different outfits.The Crystal Bezel Necklace is not your typical statement piece, rather its a minimalistic jewel that you can wear with no error. If you are feeling a little more creative you can even layer it with another longer piece of necklace.
As for the Roman Empress Bangle, it’s a strong yet classic piece to pair with any outfit that you want to have a little more fun or edge. In this case, I work with something that’s a little more fun yet bold.
I really enjoy pairing these jewellery and I hope you too can cooperate more accessories into your daily look. To start you off here’s a 15% discount code (till 31st Aug) for my readers, just quote [ CASSANSAURUS ]. Hope you enjoy shopping!

Emerald Coating

 Outfit Details
Strut it Midi Culottes Jumpsuit [ Lechic ]
Coat [ From Taiwan ]
Necklace [ Forever 21 ]
Heels [ Charles and Keith ]
Sidney Maple & Rose Gold Woodwatch [ JORD ]

Since I’ve bought a couple of new outerwear from Taiwan, I knew it’s time to create some new outfit for it! I have major love for outerwear despite the unrealistic weather in Singapore. Now that it’s Winter Season, it’s raining almost everyday hence the right time to whip those coat.
In this look I pair this beautiful emerald green coat with a white jumpsuit. Since both are long in length, I wore a heels to help accentual my height giving the illusion of a longer body. This is a very comfortable outfit there’s suitable for running errand to lunch date.

Klarra Pre-Fall 2015 RTW Collection

Recently was at Beatrica’s Klarra event for the Pre-Fall 2015 RTW Collection. This collection plays with interesting cutting as well as details, from pleated to flower. Beatrica was really lovely to chat with and down to earth. 
This skirt was obviously my favourite piece. The front and back is different in length which helps to elongate the body by showing some skin. This piece is so pretty that I would even wear it to a wedding. Overall I love that the fabric is of quality and not too thin especially for white clothing piece. 
Now you can head down to Robinsons The Hereen to view their collection as their pop up store is currently there. You can try on and get the feel of their fabric to see the quality and fitting for yourselves. Thanks Beatrica and Venelyn for the invites; and Congrates on the collection! Looking forward to more!

A Peak Of V

My very first V-Neck top.
I like how I can adjust this V-Neck knitwear according to how high or low I want the V line to be as it’s very flexible to work with. Pairing it with my boyfriend jeans for a classic look and finishing with a pink coat to brighten up the outfit.

Tracyeinny collection is filled with beautiful and chic clothing as well as jewellery.
Here I am wearing their Lana Embellished Neckline Blouse and Valora High Waisted Short.
The blouse is a classic jewel piece that has texture to it’s fabric and the short is a slightly thick chiffon material. My favourite has to be the top as it’s very versatile to wear for different occasion. If you have school that day and have to head out right after then the blouse would make the perfect wear.
