A BLAZER DRESS



If a blazer married a dress, their child would be the outfit that I was wearing. It's the best of both worlds. It's not only appropriate for daytime at work but also stylish for an event at night. I had to work during the day and didn't have enough time to go back home to change for the fashion shows early in the evening. This cool blazer dress saved me from all the rushing back and forth troubles on day 3 of Singapore Fashion Week.

At first, I wanted to pair white heels with the dress for an all-white look, but I changed my mind when I saw the striking Giuseppe Zanotti cutout sandals in my shoe closet. This is the first pair of Giuseppe Zanotti shoes I've owned and to my surprise, they were more comfortable than I thought (despite the sky-high heels). Unfortunately, this design has sold out and is not expected to be available again. But if you are in love with cobalt blue cutout heels, here is an affordable version that looks identical to the original pair.

It took me only 10 minutes to style this whole outfit. I was in a hurry and I didn't have time to take a last look in the mirror before going out. I wasn't sure if I looked ok until somebody complimented me on my outfit that night. I knew that I could always count on a blazer dress again. Hopefully, I'll have time to look at myself in the mirror next time.

What do you think of this look?

{SGFW}: THAKOON FALL 2015



I believe everyone in the Tent@Orchard wished Singapore had Winter while watching Thakoon Fall 2015 fashion show on 16th May 2015. There was a party of bohemian vibes, rich prints and warm hues that Thakoon offered to the audience through his collection. 

First, there was color-blocked knit turtlenecks, sumptuous wool coats, tapestry prints, and soft chiffon prints underneath. 



Then, there was a button-down shirt tied bottom, layered under a fur vest, or creatively paired with a red floral dress and red knee high boots. If you are into menswear style, perhaps, you can learn from Thakoon to pair the crisp white shirt with slim and tailored trousers for a sleek look. 






That wasn't the end yet. 

Thakoon continued bringing the audience surprise after surprise with his diverse collection. The Thai-American fashion designer evoked the romantic vibe to the crowd by bringing sensational colors to the second part of his collection: midnight blue and red. I'm obsessed with all the deep V-neck dresses with lace hem details in contrast colors. 

Thakoon's designs have always been described as "timelessly feminine" and "as romantic and sensual as they are modern and innovative". This Fall collection was an obvious example to prove that statement! 









Saving the best for last! Thakoon wow-ed all of us with the last two looks, as a highlight of the show, with shining beads and sequins in forms of skirt and dress. 
There were a lot of amazingness to take in that night and I had a sparkling dream of these outfits for the next two days after his show. 



   
Last but not least, a photo with the amazing and talented designer himself at backstage.

ORANGE FEVER



I took the courage to wear a deep V-neck dress on the second day of Singapore Fashion Week. I bought this dress for quite some time and haven't had a chance to wear it. Although, I don't really go out clubbing so much, I like to buy party dresses. They are beautiful and can accentuate a women's curve at the right place. Unfortunately, such revealing dresses like this can only be reserved for the right occasion, I still have 4 to 5 new dresses hanging in my closet for a couple of years. Luckily, Singapore Fashion Week happened at night. It was a perfect excuse to dress up a little bit more over the top than usual.

Because this dress showed quite a lot of skin at the chest area, I threw on an orange blazer to keep me warm and comfortable throughout the night and finished the whole look with my glaring Jimmy Choo Lang sandals (these heels glow in the neon light and they look so cool). My hair grows so quickly that I could tie a cute ponytail at the back. It was a refreshing change of appearance for me.

The venue, Tent at Orchard Road, on day 2 of Singapore Fashion Week was more crowded than the first day. There were 4 shows lined up for the evening, including my favorite Dion Lee's fashion show. Everyone was decked out in their best outfit, perfect make-up and hairdo. I was a little bit uncomfortable at first when many people stared at my striking outfit and shoes (or maybe my b**bs), but I quickly got over it to walk through the night. Guess what? A little orange fever would hurt nobody. I was having a good time and that's all that matters.

{SGFW}: DION LEE FALL 2015


Singapore Fashion Week- Dion Lee Fall 2015


On the second day of Singapore Fashion Week, one of the shows I was most looking forward to was Dion Lee, an awarded and influential fashion designer from Australia. If my memory serves me well, I first discovered Dion Lee when I saw this interlock top in his Spring 2014 collection on some websites and I was mesmerised by it. I followed him since then and have always been amazed at every single design he brought to life. 

What I love most about Dion Lee's design is that there are always quirky twists on the fabrics, interesting mix of colors, and unique details that make the audience go "Wow" every time watching his show. But no matter what, his clothes are always about elegance, sophistication, and sexiness. The Fall 2015 collection that Dion Lee brought to Singapore last week was not an exception. 

Drawing from the world of science, the collection creates concepts that communicate the perspective of a designer responding to his unique surroundings. There were a lot of sexy high slit, cascading cutting, and sliced cutout effects in various skirt and dress forms, transitioning from creamy white to mysterious black and rich emerald.  It was a sumptuous feast for the eyes of the audience that night. 

You may say that I'm biased, but the truth is, Dion Lee has outdone himself in every single collection.
