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

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?

Fashion Report: Elie Saab Spring 2015 RTW

Elie Saab is hands down one of my favourite designers of all time. In his Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection, he used psychedelic 70's vibes and the aesthetics of a Grecian goddess, to translate his feminine gowns and jumpsuits into truly wearable pieces. High slits and pastel blue was seen throughout the entire collection. Additionally, a cinched in, belted waist was iterated and emphasised in almost every piece. I loved how contemporary yet classically feminine this collection was. The unexpected flashes of skin, plunging necklines, and high-low silhouettes makes me want to wish winter away, just so I could wear these stunning clothes. 

In the first collage, I picked out the simplest and boldest pieces of the collection, in my opinion. The high necklines and long sleeves exude a timeless elegance, complemented with a belted waist. Each of these garments have an unanticipated exposure; through delicate lace or high-low shapes.

The second collages consists of my favourite gowns from this collection. We have to admit it's not an Elie Saab collection without a few jaw-dropping dresses, and he failed to disappoint this season. With the flowing, delicate fabrics and soft drapery, theres something about these gowns that radiate a divine grace. I particularly love the pockets in the frocks, which give off that quintessential flirty spring ambience. 

Tell me your thoughts on this collection, or your favourite spring collection so far!
