Sweater Weather


'Ello loves! This marks my first official blog shoot in the UK, and with the lovely windy weather Britain has to offer, it's officially time to pull out the sweaters...and sneakers!
That being said, British girls love their sneakers. Whenever I'm on campus, I tend to see a blonde/brunette haired beauty donning a pair of high tops or Converse sneakers, paired with skinny jeans, leggings, tights and a cute leather jacket or sweater of sorts. The look exudes youthfulness, vibrancy and a tendency to make me look like I'm 16...but I digress.  
Wedge sneakers have been all the rage, and I decided to join the bandwagon after a trip to Camden Market in London a few weekends ago left me 20 pounds poorer with a brand new purchase from ALDO. I decided to go for brown this time, because half the shoes in my closet are black at the moment. And boy are these babies the comfiest wedged shoes ever!
Paired with a fur vest and statement necklace, a simple sweater and jean combination can be instantly glammed up for the high street. And yes, it was pouring when these shots were taken, but I'm sure you couldn't tell the difference right? ;)
Until the next entry [hint hint: Scotland perhaps?], toodles!!!

What I'm Wearing  
Grey Sweater: River Island
Fur Vest: H&M  
Jeggings: New Look
Necklace: Accessorize
Bag: Michael Kors 
Shoes: ALDO

Little Britain

Greetings from England! Yes, I am in the land of sexy British accents, scrumptious international cuisines all blended into one, and shopping that can last me for days! In case you didn't know, I'm here in the UK for 3 months for an international exchange, and I've been loving every moment of it thus far! Everyone is so friendly here, and to be honest, I didn't actually think I would be shopping much when I got here. Oh, how wrong have I been! As a British university student, you are entitled to student discounts on most high street brands, from Topshop to H&M to New Look to Accessorize and the works. It's only been three weeks into the Winter semester, and I have probably spent hundreds of pounds on high street brands already, both online AND offline! One thing I have noticed about the Brits is that they LOVE their leather jackets, so be sure to invest in a stylish, cozy and warm leather jacket, like the one I recently purchased from Topshop, if you wanna blend in! 
Stay tuned for more blog entries to come, because I plan to be sharing with you the beauty of what England and Winter Fashion have to offer! Get ready for posts on Scotland, Amsterdam, Cambridge, and hopefully Sweden! 

What I'm Wearing  
Glitter Sweater: River Island
High Waist Jeggings: River Island  
Faux Fur Rimmed Leather Jacket: Topshop
Bag: Michael Kors 
Flats: New Look 

Keep Warm and Stay Fabulous!

La Femme en Noir


Yeap, I'm back...and this time, I'm back in black for a new brand new blogpost! This week, I decided to head down to The W Hotel at Sentosa Cove for a little high tea treat before heading to work. Speaking of work, I have truly had the blessed opportunity this summer to have two exciting internships, the first being an internship at Cosmopolitan Magazine, and my current internship involves me interning at a radio station as a radio deejay. As a Journalism and Communications student, I could not have asked for anything more. But I'll be sharing more stories on that for a later post. 
I only have about three more weeks in Singapore before I fly off to London for my year long exchange program to the UK and US, and pretty soon you guys will be seeing more Winter posts and picture perfect scenery that I would most definitely love to share with you all! 
That being said, shooting at The W Hotel was so much fun because the decor of the place is simply stunning, lavishly decorated, and if I were to decorate my future home sometime down the road, I would definitely use The W Hotel as a reference of sorts. Even the pool was so enticing that I felt like jumping in with my dress and taking a dip with all the other hotel guests.  
The high tea set is available at the Woobar @ W Singapore and was served in a very intricate manner, with sweet pastries adorning the insides of a metal bird cage, and savory treats presented neatly on a very Zen-esque wooden board. Coffee and tea were free flow, and the iced cappuccino I had was the refreshing perk-me-up I totally needed on a lazy Monday afternoon. Teas served are from the Dilmah tea brand and the Moroccan mint tea was the perfect beverage to cool down after stuffing ourselves with foie gras ganache tarts and passion fruit meringue pastries. 
This perfect afternoon could only end with a photo shoot by the marina before I was whisked away to work. If you're curious to hear how I sound like on-air, you can head on down to http://www.theliveradio.sg and <Listen Live> every weekdays from 6-10pm!

Until the next fashionable entry,
Toodles my loves!

Legs and Leather

So it's been a while, and I cannot believe the long hiatus I have taken from this blog! Like any other university student out there, I have been swamped with work from all corners, but with a HUGE shopping haul and a ton of new clothes and shoes, I am ready to publish more fashion-related posts as of today!
  
My mummy flew over to Hong Kong this weekend and we spent a wonderful belated birthday celebration for her at The Tea Room in Central. Of course, I HAD to don my Prada babies (which in my opinion are severely underused) and my brand new asymmetrical dress (which I ALSO bought in a salmon pink color), coupled with a leather and jersey jacket combination. Hong Kong is chilly at the moment, but not cold enough to prevent me from showing off some leg, which I love! 

At this very moment, not only am I obsessed with leather and legs, high tea and high heels; I am all for delicate rings (all of my rings are ordered from Etsy.com, a perfect online community to find vintage, handmade trinkets) and turquoise nail polish (hence the new nail color)!

Till the next time,
S. 

P.S The first photograph is testament to the fact that although I do love the camera, I still have my moments of utter embarrassment when people across the road are staring at me pose~

Mod Cloth

Channeling vintage glamour and retro reproduction, my lovely friend Rachel agreed to let me photograph her during a cozy little brunch at Wild Honey back in Singapore. The dress itself was meant for a drama production she had performed in before, but was also perfect for a Sunday brunch out. Her new bob coupled with the floral and fruit theme from head-to-toe practically screams Katy Perry-ness! 

Major love.

The 10 Dollar Dress

To the behest of my mummy-photographer-for-the-day, I have finally uploaded some shots taken in Malacca during New Year's Eve. This gorgeous silk dress was purchased from a little boutique down in Chinatown for 10 dollars and has been my go-to beach dress ever since. Traditionally, I would have worn a bikini underneath, but since we hit the iconic Red House vicinity for a little sight-seeing, a tube top would suffice for the day. Shooting in a maxi dress must not be common in Malaysia because this dress literally stopped traffic. 10 dollars well-spent I reckon. ;)

What I'm Wearing
Dress: Flea Market @ Chinatown
Bejeweled Slippers: Accessorize 
Bracelet: Little Store in Shenzhen, China
