Top 4 Spring Collections

Sonia Rykiel 2015 Ready-to-Wear
Sonia Rykiel was truly reborn as designer Julie de Libran crafted the quintessential Spring RTW collection. It was fun, effortless and flirtatious. Everything from the playful pieces to the models that wore them was absolute ideal, and true to the Rykiel brand. A neutral colour palette was contrasted by  simple, yet bold, silhouettes. Stripes were renewed; large prints shown on tweed blazers and khaki capes. A slightly sport vibe was translated into shorts and jacket combos, that contrasted the more feminine looks. This collection was overall outstanding, one of my favourite Spring collections for 2015. 
Elie Saab Spring 2015 Couture
Sparkle, sequins, and glamour beamed from Elie Saab's Spring Couture collection. I was awestruck by the textures, fabrics, silhouettes, everything in this collection! Saab's taste for all things elegantly exciting was emulated perfectly in his couture collection; as is in all of his collections. He was inspired by the "golden age" of Beirut and his reminiscence of the 60's, and he did a stunning job at showing it in clothes. His clothes were, as they always are and always will be, works of art.

Erdem Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear
Erdem is making the jungle sexy this Spring. An abundance of greens, in every shade imaginable, were shown on the feminine pieces from this collection. The fierceness of the wild contrasted the soft fabrics and ladylike silhouettes; while complementing the daring sheerness and plunging necklines. This entire collection oozed sex appeal and a wild nature. The simple hair and makeup consummated the entire look and achieved the ideal look for a warm spring night.

Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture
Stunning, gorgeous, charming, elegant, graceful, magnificent; there aren't enough synonyms for the word beautiful to describe Murad's Spring couture collection. Everything from the side-swept old Hollywood curls to the cinched in waist and the minimalistic shoes emitted a type of glamour and elegance that few designers manage to capture. The gowns came in all shapes and sizes: high necks, plunging necklines, swimsuit bodices to full-length dresses. There were no two creatures that looked even remotely alike. Once again, Murad gave us an absolutely beautiful collection.

Sweater- Brandy Melville | Skirts - Miss Selfridge | Backpack- Brandy Melville | Shoes- Doc Marten (Serena)

While I adore summer with all its sun-kissed skin and warm nights, winter definitely has its perks. As I mentioned in this post, turtlenecks are becoming my most favoured clothing item to wear during the colder months. As oppose to their formfitting counterparts, loose turtleneck sweaters give off a cool, laid-back vibe. My latest purchase from Brandy Melville achieves that mellow ambience, making it the perfect thing to wear on a casual day. I wore this outfit to school, hence the backpack. The bag, also from Brandy, emits a somewhat riot time aura to this wintery outfit.  I let the sweater be the focus of this outfit, keeping everything else minimal. I love the way the roughness of the Doc's contrasts the soft, placid nature of the sweater.

What do you think of this look?

all that glitters

All items mentioned are linked
It feels like I have abandoned the blog for the past few months but I am finally back to blogging! If I ever do stick to my new year resolutions, I'll definitely be posting as frequently as possible.

This season boasts a flair of opulence, shimmer and glamour. Gold perfectly encapsulates these ideals. It exudes a desirable craving, which makes me fall in love with all gold looks. When it comes to gold, it's all about the accessories. Be it headphones, bracelets, or planners, I've covered my gold loves and desires of the month.

Watch: Casio
Although I'm late into the bandwagon, this watch has been on my wish list for some time now! It's perfect for all occasions and is perfect to use for school or a night out. Simple yet classy, this watch is very covetable at the moment. 


I'm currently listening to STRFKR (if you haven't heard them before, I highly encourage you to do so!!!) on these headphones and they are undoubtedly the prettiest headphones I've owned. These have been on my wish list for quite a while, so I was so glad to finally get them, even after the disappointing shipping service. (8 weeks is not okay.) They have a great sound and are perfect to listen to bass music with. 

Concealer: Nars 
I bought this concealer last summer and it's definitely one of the best concealers out there. It provides excellent coverage, without adding a cake-y texture. It feels light on your skin and feels almost so light like you aren't wearing any concealer. This is vital while looking for concealers as many concealers don't allow your skin to breathe, causing break outs. 


Planner: Kate Spade 
Although January is almost over, it's still not too late to buy a planner for the new year! Being an obsessive stationary collector and lover for all things pretty, I had to get this planner for the new year after reading only rave reviews. I've been looking for this gorgeous planner all over Singapore, but unfortunately there seems to be no stock. 


Headband: Jennifer Behr 
Think Anthropologie 'greek goddess'. I first fell in love with Behr's headbands when I saw them on my favourite Youtuber SunBeamJess. Behr so happens to have designed most of Blair Waldorf's headbands. Coincidence?? I think not. 


Bracelet: Cartier Love bracelet
I blame my obsession with this bracelet from binge-watching Keeping up with the Kardashians. 

Essie Nail Polish and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector
Personally, I usually opt for gold colors on my nails as I've always preferred them over other colours. They are fairly neutral and can match any outfit. As for the skin perfector, it provides the perfect natural warm glow to your complexion.


Gold shoes
A pair of beautiful gold heels are essential in every girl's shoe collection, just like the ones above. It can definitely glam up any outfit and looks great on most looks.

What do you think of the gold look?
