  My mum often asks why I dress up “just to go downtown”,  especially in a pair of thick jeans in sweltering 30°C heat.  To me, my style of the day simply reflects the mood I am in, rather than its appropriateness.   I wonder how I would describe the mood that made me style my self-designed shirt… Read More »

  A statement piece is one that says something about you, is cool, and designed to create a wow effect.  One of mine is  the Three Floor Skirt (shop here) from Zalando.  Because it is meant to be special, we wait for the “right” occasion to wear it.  What if we just wear a statement… Read More »

  In the summer and tropical heat, you would normally care about wearing less than dressing up.  But what if you want to dress up to look feminine and stylish in something which is also easy and convenient to wear?  How to find a staple piece that you can wear over and over again? How… Read More »

  I looove sleeping – the feeling is simply amazing. I like the cocooning feeling of lying on your comfy bed, slowly falling asleep and waking up to a new morning after a nice dream. The bed and bedtime is a place/moment I feel secure, calm and good. Yet, I hate the idea of sleeping… Read More »

  2017 will be a year of discovery and adventure for me –  I have just arrived in Singapore to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Rooster (or fire chicken say some) and …stay for a year!  Why Singapore?   I am half-Singaporean and I travel here every year to visit my big extended family… Read More »

  I wish I had the talent to write. But that is far from the case.  My head is a mishmash of ideas which I fail to organize in nicely written paragraph. Yes, I have a message I want to share but it often gets side-tracked or mixed up with other ideas. As I write this post, I am like “oh but what was the point of this intro” ?  Fortunately I like to have all my articles… Read More »

Not Your Date Outfit

“Would it be OK if I wore that look on a date ?” I curiously asked my friend David.  He said “No” politely, explaining that my outfit was neither casual nor chic, neither stylish nor classic.  He was right – it wouldn’t make an impact.  For a change, this post is about what not to wear on a… Read More »

  Slippers in winter !?  I dare myself to wear my Zyne fringed slip-ons from Rush&Co online store but with 3 layers of tights.  I keep my look minimal with side-slit culotte pants, self-designed shirt, and leather jacket (over which I have a gilet not shown in the picture).  As usual, I give a twist to the outfit… Read More »

I choose at the new Claudie Pierlot boutique in Outlet Aubonne a black shirt as a “base” of my outfit. I wanted a simple and polyvalent piece with a material… Read More »

Black is Still the New Black

  I love wearing BLACK. There are good reasons why black remains the color of choice.  Black is a timeless, chic and subtle.  If a black outfit is boring, the culprit is usually the clothes itself or the accessories with it.  Here is how I style an all-black attire for an urban and playful look. Sometimes… Read More »
