Look Book | Fur & Fall

Fall has always been my favourite season. Unfortunately, in Singapore, you can’t feel it. However, that’s not stopping me from styling in Fall looks. In this look, I play with the fur coat that has been lounging in my wardrobe for the longest time. This is still pretty wearable in Singapore IF you are staying in air-conditional place.
The turtle neck top is actually pretty thin in terms of material so pairing it with short still keeps you relatively cool. The fur coat is obviously the one that’s gonna keep you warm in cold temperate. Plus, it’s a vest fur coat so its still not too hot compare to those with sleeves. If you have to head out of the mall, just take off the coat, no hassle there.

Look Book | The Boss In Me

11 | 11 | 16
Marks the day I officially join MyFatPocket family as a Guest Blogger. I’m filled with excitement and drive to produce even higher quality work and so for starter, I decided that it would be my Look Book that gets the first visual hits. Every time I read a magazine, I love how a graphic designer can make a page looks so enticing to read. That’s something I see in blogs too as I explore! People are getting more creative in the way they edit and I found myself browsing through their post, picture by picture.
My dear friend Christy does some pretty sweet visual so I’m super inspired too. (Go check her out )
After browsing through magazines and blogs, here’s what I can come up with and I’m still very much a beginner at this and hopefully will get better with time! I really am working hard on this so in the meantime, do let me know if you enjoy such visual too!
In this Look Book, the key is to bring out the inner boss. Since I want to ensure that it’s still looking chic, I pair it with a classy sling bag with gold details and the choker neck off-the-shoulder top certainly prevent me from looking too formal.

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:

Taiwan,Taipei Lookbook

Taiwan with my siistAz was amazing! The cheap delicious food, the awesome shopping, the polite people and the efficient transport system makes this trip very memorable. I enjoyed every moment with girls, living with them for a week was definitely something new yet something that I can get used to. This trip was special because it was the very first oversea trip for us. We have been talking about travelling for many years now since are together for 10 years! It’s a relationship that I treasure and hold dearly to heart. I’m thankful for having them in my life.
Anyway back to Taiwan, if you want to know more about it do comment below and I will try my best to answer you base on what I’ve experienced. On the other hand, you can read on my first Taiwan trip last November HERE.

Taiwan is definitely worth travelling and if you love cooling weather then travelling during November would be a good time. Do bear in mind that during that period is also going to be a little crowded. Hope you like the looks, let me know which one you like the most!

Hugs, 
Cassandra

Bold and Lace

I’ve always wanted to try out putting a turtleneck pieces together. In this look, I pair up the turtleneck with a button up top. This is inspired by the Korean artist who loves layering an outer piece on top of the turtleneck to help bring out the look. This outfit is suitable air-conditioning indoors or a colder climax location. I decided to finish the look with a lace skirt and lace-up heels to add a little more feminine touch. Overall the look is chic and the print helps brings out the turtleneck top.
Let me know what you think of this look in the comment section and what would you like to see next! Thanks and Hugs!
