Dare Devil Me

In Fashion, Want List on February 14, 2013 at 1:07 am


How amazing are these Jenni Kayne D’orsay flats? Been sort of obsessed with flats lately. Prior to these were the white canvas Chanel espadrilles. Love, love, love! Expensive, too! The husband is convinced that it is a rip off seeing how it’s literally made out of straws and (doh!) canvas. But as my wise Frenchman friend said, with espadrilles you either go dirt cheap or you show them the money – there is no such thing as an in between. So I’m slowly diverting my attention to these sexy, yet mannish, flats. They come in a truckload of colours and materials but I’m boring and practical so yes, I’d have one in black, please. Oh alright, I’ll go a bit wild. Gimme the one with the embossed croc/suede/lizard patchwork.

Maybe I should try sky diving next?


Love: Burnt Orange

In OOTD, Want List on January 4, 2013 at 6:07 pm



It’s super raining over here and it’s causing the little man a bit of stress. He’s trying to sleep but keeps getting frightened by the thunder. Even I’m a bit freaked out!!! All this just means that I won’t be able to make it to the gym, again. I now see why mothers struggle to keep up with their own appearance – every bit of their time goes to the kids and husband! Sheesh.

Oh well, in the mean time, here’s a bit of burnt orange to brighten up this dark evening. Yes, this is an almost 1 year old picture and hence not how I look now – I went a bit crazy with the highlights after the pregnancy and will reveal that in due course – but I wanted to remind myself to dig up this awesome skirt I got from Asos in one of my boxes. We’re currently nomads, the three of us, as our home is still in an inhabitable state. Speaking of burnt orange, (I secretly like saying the word ‘burnt orange’ hence am consciously using it every chance I get) I am on the fence on this pencil skirt from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Should I?!

Burn, Baby, Burn

Super obsessed with burgundy right now. Maybe because I’m thinking of fall. It’s such a versatile colour and I believe it’s flattering on most skin tones. Right now I’m itching, no, dying! to wear a pair of skinny crops. They would probably be my first indulgence after confinement. My favorites:

IRO jeans, Isabel Marant pumps, Miu Miu blazer

To Hold My Jeans Up

In Want List on January 6, 2012 at 1:19 pm

I’m very much a jeans and shirt kind of person. I don’t think that necessary translates to casual or by any means boring, so long as you have the right accessories to break the monotony. It’s amazing what an unusual belt or a chunky necklace can do for you. It somehow completes whatever look you’re going for – be it glamourous, effortless or hipster. So, my current obsession, ladies and gentlementhe buffalo hip belt from Balmain. Faz, if you are reading this, this would be a VERY good Valentine’s present… or a ‘month-a-versary’ present¬†(do people our age still do this?!!) if you feel that this belt should be strapped to my jeans a few weeks earlier. Haha!

I’ve been scouting for a one piece swimwear (for those I-feel-bloated moments… ok ok, it’s really for those moments when I need to appear more decent. It was either this or a wetsuit ( -_-!)) and I really like this one from Melissa Odabash at Net-A-Porter. And it’s on sale! YIKES! Should I?!!!

Wish List

December is upon us and that means one thing – presents! And we all love presents, especially ones that you can’t afford. Haha! So this year I’m really feeling accessories. I’ve been really lazy with my wardrobe lately and find that I could do with a couple more ‘ooumpph‘ pieces to help jazz or complete my look. So my current top 5 are:

Lanvin’s Swarovski Crystal and Pewter Choker

Jimmy Choo’s Flaxman Sandals
Valentino’s ‘Rock Stud’ Clutch

Norma Kamali’s Cat’s Eye Sunglasses

The Row’s Day Luxe Tote
