Aye Aye Captain!

Ahoy Matey!

Feeling very nautical and sailor-ish so I decided to go with that and work an outfit with the theme. I stuck to blue, white and brown...which are one of my top color combinations since brown and blue always has a rugged preppy feel to it. Wore my hair up cause I had no time to style it (yet again) and basically added all the essentials: statement neckpiece, cinchwaist belt, tieup booties and headband in a similar shade.

My most favorite piece in this look is the neckpiece which my cousin, Kix made. She'll be coming up with a collection this September but check out her stuff at her Tumblr,

The design is called the Trinity necklace and its absolutely to die for.

Here's a short write up I found on why NAUTICAL will never go out of style! Thought I'd share to you all....

Nautical is nothing new, but there is something new in nautical. Every spring and summer blue and cream horizontal stripes crop up everywhere from the runway to the L.L. Bean Catalog. Women have enjoyed dressing like sailors since boating became recreational. So how have designers reinvented the trend this spring? Read on to see my inspirations for the outfit!

Virtual Insanity

The all black outfit continues...

Yet again, I decided to leather it up for a Wednesday night event me and my BFF, Nina attended at Member's Only over at the Fort. We went to support the Prive Fashion Series featuring Rosanna Ocampo as the designer in focus for the night. As most of you already know, Glitterati, the clothing brand I own with my best friend will be doing the event next Wednesday, September 1 where we will be unveiling a more luxe and high end product line for the brand. It is keeping us quite busy and occupied but we aren't complaining... it is a great honor to have been chosen to present our muses, who are comprised of models, fashion bloggers, local celebrities, socialites and beauty queens at such a prestigious place.

Anyway, the outfit was actually an accidental discovery I made and it was not at all planned. I had a totally different dress in mind to wear for the occasion but it was too loose on me, I had to improvise. The theme of the night was body-con. Nina, my friend, wore a mesh dress while I, desperately seeking for an outfit, saw this and thought the similarity of fabric and finish of the two pieces can work together to achieve a one pc. dress effect. All I needed was a thick belt to hide the point where the skirt meets the top and I was able to pull it off, quite effortlessly. I decided I wanted to go through with the dominatrix vibe of the dress with my shoes so I chose a strappy wedged pair from Soule Phenomenon which has a beautiful metal detail on one side of the wedged heel. Keep everything else simple...I wore no accessories, save for my 2.55 Chanel purse (3rd straight day I used this)

Here are some photos from the event:

Hope it worked! Wish me luck for the remaining will definitely be major work mode! Till the next! xx

PS: My boyfriend took this photo...his first time to actually take a photo for my blog since I am quite shy to do my poses in front of him. However, I had no choice this night since I lacked the time to shoot my outfit and I had to improvise despite the rain at the exterior walls/ entrance of the now closed Fly Room from Embassy.

Hot Weather Leather

Was very lazy to dress up and when that happens, I go to the tried, tested and never failing: all black. It's the easiest outfit to pick out when I am feeling so uninspired and BLAH. This is probably due to the fact that there was a tragic crisis in our country which involved tourists from HK being held hostage by an armed vigilante. It was terrifying and quite depressing. My eyes were glued to the TV set the whole day the 12 hour crisis ensued.

I chose to wear all black to subconsciously mourn the loss of human lives, I guess. Things that happen around me seriously affect my overall fashion aura. I realized that I had not worn these shoes for a very long time and I just had to take them out for a spin, since I do love them so much. I decided to match the wonderfully wooden wedged boots from Zara with a black leather skirt with a beautiful zipper detail and a cropped top layered over a basic white tank top keep the look as monotonous and basic as possible. Was too lazy to switch purses from my last post so i stuck it out with the 2.55 Chanel purse.

Wearing my hair straight today since I had no time to style it at all. Basically just brushed it down and was good to go. I miss my curls! Sigh! I hope tomorrow is better!
