Look Book | Dentelle

This outfit is super sweet and girly hence I had to add in a cupcake bag to complete the look. An interesting part was I actually wore the back of the top in the front instead and let’s just say it fits and look better.

Look Book | Shades Of Fall

Fall, the season where I love layering and playing with all the different shades from burnt orange to brown and burgundy. In this look, I’m wearing shades of fall as well as a sexy little peekaboo that’s not showing too much but just the right amount of skin. To give it a little edge, I wore a pair of black boots. To add a bit of casual chic element, I decided to throw over a boyfriend denim jacket to balance out the look. This look overall has a bit of an attitude to it which is the way I like it!

Look Book | Feeling The Breeze

This Look Book is featuring the floral printed shirtdress from H&M Fall Collection. It’s the perfect layering piece in Singapore humid weather as it’s lightweight yet super chic. It can act as a strong statement piece in an outfit as it diverts the attention to this shirtdress. 
If you are located at a much cooler climate, then you can add-on another layer over this such as a trench coat or a denim jacket.

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:

Channeling summer vibe with inspiration from Boho and Coachella chic!
This outfit is perfect for the hot weather to come as the material is thin and breathable.
Pop on a shade to add a hint of hipster, the look is not complete without a pair of chic lace-up heels.

This varsity look is different as it plays with knit and sleeveless. When match with a ruby midi skirt, it brings out the feminine side of it. I then pair it with a coat and red heels to complete the look. If you want to feel a little extra sexy, don’t hesitate to pop on a red lipstick.

London Prep

Outfit Details
Coat | Top | Bottom | Oxford Shoe | Socks [ From Taiwan ]
Necklace [ H&M ]
Sidney Maple & Rose Gold Woodwatch [ JORD ]

This is by far my favourite outerwear lookbook! I love how preppy and fall looking it is. The little details from high neck and coat all the way down to sock and oxford shoe makes every thing very cosy to wear without losing the chic factor. This is something I would wear either to an event or a whole day out in town.
I hope you like this look and do let me know what lookbook would you like me to create next!

Hugs, 
Cassandra

Outfit x Le Grand Boutique & Bridal and Zwedding Design Event

Out and about at City Hall area shooting my outfit before making my way to  Le Grand Boutique & Bridal and Zwedding Design The Prelude Couture Runway 2015 event. During the event, Mr Chris Ling himself, a wedding photographer share with us slide of how many boutique would lie about the photographer portfolio through buying the wedding pictures from roadshow and online. He manage to show us how different company may use the same picture by adding their boutique name onto the photo which result in customer complaint of why the photographer could get the type of feel that they see in those sample photos. 
Next he show photos that’s shoot by himself and it take certain skill for the photographer to shoot a wedding photo with feel to it while ensuring that the bride is looking good through posture and pose. He also mention that many times couple would argue during selection of wedding boutique because of a few factor such as wedding gown, photographer and the main contributing factor, the total cost. To him working together with Zwedding is like giving a solution to couple who wants the best but at the right price because we all know how expensive wedding gown to photoshoot can be. Hence if you are planning on getting marriage, do check out Le Grand Boutique & Bridal. Scroll down to view some of their bridal gown from The Prelude collection.
