Flirty Friday with Pur Pur

Jacelyn X Pur Pur Blue Tube White Skorts Jacelyn X Pur Pur Feb 2016 Jacelyn X Pur Pur

Dressed in a full outfit from Pur Pur, featuring a blue floral frills tube top and a D-ring white skorts. I like that the outfit is feminine and chic at the same time, it is perfect for everyday wear and even to casual dinner dates. The versatile top can be worn two ways, either as a tube top or an off-shoulder top depending on how you like it. Either way, it’s perfect for our tropical climate and you can show off your collarbone at the same time (think fun and sexy!). The skorts is both girly and convenient for you when running errands; there’s going to be zero worry about up-skirt situations.

CNY Shopping

If you haven’t start your CNY shopping, fret not, here’s a quick article to introduce my top 5 favorite places to get clothes.

  1. Love Bonito

Love Bonito fryda-jacquard-dress

For friends who know me, you would have known I’m a HUGE fan of Love Bonito! You can expect to find classic, simple and value-for-money designs suitable for daily/work wear. The best part is you can do a fuss free of exchange of clothes if the size doesn’t fit!

P.S. they also have very consistent sizing, so you don’t have to worry about fitting in different sizes for every piece. (i.e. if you a size S for dress A, you can be sure to fit in size S for dress B, C, D, E…)

  1. Oh Vola

Oh Vola bora-mesh-lace-set

My recent favorite has got to be Oh Vola! They have modern and inexpensive designs suitable for work or for casual wear. Not forgetting that their customer service team is super efficient, nice and helpful! I bought a lace skirt with a slight defect from their retail store, emailed them, no further questions were asked and I was allowed for an exchange the next day!

3. MFW Store

MFW Store CNY Dress

For casual pieces and cute phone cases, I love MFW Store! It is more suitable for youngsters looking for fun, flirty and playful designs.

  1. City Plaza @ Paya Lebar

01city-plaza

The wholesale center at Paya Lebar is where most blogshops get their supply of clothes! Take time to comb through the shops, you’ll definitely not be disappointed with the number of items you can get. The down side however is that there’s usually no price tags along with the clothes; so I do find it troublesome to ask for prices sometimes. Go with a couple of friends because there’s room for discounts when you get a few pieces!

P.S. bring along more CASH with you because most shops don’t transact with NETS or cards.

  1. Carousell – @bernicelove and @iluvfashionclothings

tumblr_static_92by87xbso4k0o84ksskkw0o8

For second hand good deals, I frequently visit these sellers as they have really nice items on sale. Their items are well maintained, as good as new and most importantly a fraction of the usual price!

P.S. If you fancy the blue lace dress featured in the featured image, it is from Fashmob. Dress material is slightly thin, but the colour stands out in photos & I have gotten SO MANY compliments in it.

Happy shopping for now!

Hair Trend 2016 – Balayage

A while ago I had the privilege to be Kimage Hair Model and its a timely good opportunity for me to (finally!) ditch the boring long straight hair I’ve been having all the time (feeling a bit guilty as I say this, but I kept the same hairstyle for more than 10 years so far!).

12510515_10153532643602585_2804848128483166886_n

To be honest, I am pretty wary when it comes to experimenting new hairstyles for myself (because I am always worried about the turn out and I have had a disastrous perm many years back), but Kimage had managed to convince me to try something completely different from how I usually look – Middle length, Choppy Bangs with Balayage hair color. And boy, I was excited after I saw the image after googling “Balayage”.

When I set my eyes on this Balayage hair color image, it was just love at first sight for me! Nothing too drastic or wild, and it suits my personality.

Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It creates a sun-kissed natural looking hair color with the darker shade on top followed by a gradual fading of color to the hair tip (meaning less noticeable regrowth lines when the black roots merge with the darker shade of color on the crown of your head). I think I look more sunshine after the change of colour!

It’s perfect for my lifestyle as I prefer a hairstyle with less maintenance effort while giving me a soft and natural look. If you are more adventurous, you can go for stronger colors with the same balayage effect (see below).

Suitable for the tropical weather, middle length is fun, flirty and versatile. Also, read below on why you should consider shoulder length hair and choppy bangs from the professionals from Kimage instead!

You can pick up the Hair Trend Lookbook of 2016 at any of the Kimage outlets and expect to read about the Color/Texture/Hair Length of 2016!

P.S. I did my hair with Yvonne at Kimage (Bukit Panjang Outlet), she’s attentive to my needs, patient and skillful! If you are looking to change a new image for the new year, do consider dropping by. 🙂

New year, new me

“You will have the habits 20 years from now that you put into practice today. So look at the behavior you admire in others and make those your habits, and look at what you find reprehensible in others and decide those are the things you are not going to do” – Warren Buffett.

I couldn’t agree more. 10 days to 2016, I am still struggling to write my resolutions. One thing for sure, in 2016, I promise to be a better (and a more consistent) blogger!

Never STOP Learning

Einstein  said, “Once you stop learning, you start dying”.

So every now and then, I would push myself out of comfort zone to experience new things or learn new skills.

I am back to attend Cosmoprof’s Make Up and Hairstyling course for the month of December (stopped for awhile because of my leg fracture previously) so I have not been active in doing anything else 🙁 Everyday it’s just class, work and sleep.

Just done with my mood board and make up conceptualisation for the upcoming exams today! Will be re-creating the looks I have selected in the next few days… I have gotten many enquiries and questions about the make up class, so I will share more about the course when my exam ends. Meanwhile, please wish me good luck Xx

Jacelyn december 2015

On a side note, I do miss my dear classmates from the previous batch whom have graduated :'( They were my pillars of strength and encouragement on a daily basis as I struggle through this class A LOT.

Work OOTD

Jacelyn Phang Work Chic Outfit

Work outfits doesn’t always mean black & white or boring. My work wear philosophy had always been “don’t blend in when you can stand out”.

Get noticed with
1. Unique accessory (it’s always a great conversation starter!), or
2. Bright colors (ain’t no time to be a wallflower) and
3. Fitted outfits (you look smart instantly)

“If summer could be a person, it would be Star Clozetter JacelynPhang! Her boldly printed pencil skit and bright green halter top aren’t what you would expect someone to wear during the fall season, but going against fashion rules surely paid off! Her gorgeous pencil skirt hugged her body beautifully, while her halter top and large sunglasses pulled the whole look together for one classy OOTD.” – Tisha Caedo, Feature Writer of Clozette

Thank you Clozette for the feature, learn more ways to wear the mid-length skirt suitable for work with Clozette here too!

Singapore Fashion Runaway Model

“Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing” – Oscar Wilde.

Halloween was spent modeling for Singapore Fashion Runway’s last community event at Blisshouse. For a short one hour runaway show, a lot of sweat and work had been put in to make it a success. It’s been a pleasure working with local fashion brands as I’ve been an avid supporter of SG brands (Hey, I’m a proud Singaporean!).

The experience was made fun not just because I get to get filmed by Channel News Asia or because I get to wear nice clothes, rather, it’s really the new friends that I make that makes such work so enjoyable. Such experience is priceless & I urge you to push yourself to experience new things every now and then. Every experience opens a whole new world X

Shoot Me

Lately I’ve been trying out different styles of clothes that aren’t my usual feminine style, and I love this floral prints romper that is not too girly. The spaghetti strap design is also perfect for our tropical weather climate.
