Slight delay on my end, busy week. My whole weekend was practically burnt working on projects and… editing photos.
I couldn’t think of a title for this week, since this was worn on the last days of Feb, figured “Goodbye February” was kinda appropriate.
Anyway, I was hoping to start off saying something like “welcoming back colours” since last “issue” the focus was “colourless”. Unfortunately, there aren’t many colours this issue either. So, I’m gonna just skip the introduction and introduce you to this week’s “showcase”!
This week, or rather the week before last, we kick off the week with a little style!
MONDAY (February 21, 2011)
Remember two issues back, the Friday (February 11, 2011) outfit? I was raving about this really cute “bear bear bag” I bought from MINIMAOS. I was sooo excited about the bag, I totally forgot to mention I got a coat as well!
So yes, the stylishly good looking Versatile Zebra Scarf Coat (RM59) you see above (and below) is from MINIMAOS, the inner dress is from Princessa’s Boutique (my personal blogshop, going to relaunch either together with my new label or after), the heels are from Charles & Keith, and the shades are from Juicy Couture.
The other elements of the outfit are pretty much secondary, the primary focus here is the coat.
It was love at first sight, I swear! Unfortunately, to be absolutely honest, I was a little disappointed with the fabric and the workmanship (the scarf had a tear at the edges). That said, it’s only about SGD30, so you really can’t be expecting too much. And you have to admit, the design is really pretty unique.
In case you’re wondering, the Zebra-patterned scarf is attached to the black coat.
I seriously do not do that coat justice. It is pretty stretchable, but it would fit much better on someone with a smaller build, someone like Isabelle or Jac!
TUESDAY (February 22, 2011)
I have this unspoken rule of not wearing the same outfit more than once a month. It’s a pretty new rule. I came up with it late last year. Sadly, I somewhat broke it.
Somewhat meaning, not entirely. I didn’t wear the exact outfit but I’ve worn this jacket numerous times, like to the AL&ALICIA fashion show sometime back. And quite a few times this month. So yeah, the rule still stands! ;P
This is one of my favourite jackets really. It’s one of those designs that’s versatile (casual or semi-formal) and never goes out of style!
The dress and jacket are from THEBLOGSHOP, the heels are from Pedro, and the shades are from Juicy Couture.
WEDNESDAY (February 23, 2011)
Something simple, one dress does it all?
The dress is from The 199 Shop, the bangles are from Forever 21, and the wedges are from Charles & Keith (if not mistaken, this pair was featured in CHIC Magazine some issues back).
The dress doesn’t really flatter me, but it’s easy and comfortable to wear. It would have looked better if I matched it with a belt to give a little more shape.
There’s really nothing much to say about the outfit, not much thought was put into it.
THURSDAY (February 24, 2011)
The Johnnie Walker event (or rather dinner) is tonight (not tonight-tonight but that night)!
I had no idea what was gonna be presented (I do now of course) and had no idea what to be prepared for. What I did know (even before I went) was it was gonna be great (it kinda was, kinda)!
The toga dress (it can also be a top paired with leggings) is from Princessa’s Boutique, the red belt and earrings are from I-really-can’t-remember, and the heels are from Charles & Keith.
Black is the safest colour to wear when you’re uncertain, especially for ladies like me that are more on the chubby side.
Don’t you just love dolling up? Actually no, I really rather prefer having someone do it for me. I need Jac like 24/7.
FRIDAY (February 25, 2011)
It’s the end of the work week and the beginning of bear time!
The chiffon shirt dress is from THEBLOGSHOP, the necklace was a Christmas present handmade by Sylvia (a good friend of mine), the hairband is bear bear’s (I kid you not), the wedges are from Charles & Keith, and the teddybear is from Teddybear (aka bear bear).
The earrings were bought at Bugis Street. If not mistaken, it was SGD5 for three pairs!
A pinch of vintage feel to the whole look wouldn’t you say? (Please say yes >.< !)
SATURDAY (February 26, 2011)
Surprise, surprise! We have more outfits this week, seven to be exact.
The top is from THEBLOGSHOP, the shorts were bought at Bugis Street, the bangles are from the streets (or rather beaches to be more exact) of Bali, the hairband is bear bear’s, and the FitFlop slippers are from Priss.
It’s a really casual look I’m going for – easy Saturday.
SUNDAY (February 27, 2011)
The top is from from THEBLOGSHOP, the denim shorts are from I-can’t-remember, the FitFlop slippers are from Priss, and the pink bag is from Bugis Street.
The pink chrysanthemum earrings are also from Bugis Street, the same shop I got my other pair of earrings. Totally adorable, matches the pink chrysanthemum in Snowflake’s vase.
