In Good Company DFW

Dress: Motel Rocks
Clutch: Cheap Monday
Shoes: Unbranded
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of attending In Good Company's first ever fashion show with fellow blogger Mariana in play of Digital Fashion Week, Singapore's first live streaming fashion week. After streaming last year's DFW shows online, it was an amazing experience to finally be able to watch the show live. In Good Company is a homegrown Singaporean brand and although I hate to admit it, I had never heard or come across their brand before which is why Digital Fashion Week is such a great platform discovering and highlighting Singapore's most talented designers. 
After the first few models showcased the clothes on the runway, what really struck me was how crisp, clean and fresh the clothes were. Asymmetrical skirts and boxy shirts formed quite a large and masculine silhouette on the models which also suited the very clinical make up garnished on the all the models. As you can see from the images above, the "high waisted skirt" theme was used throughout the collection and remained one of In Good Company's signature motifs. Although quite repititive, it was a clever look to reuse as the high waisted skirts are both versatile and very smart.
Towards the end of the show, the clothes became more girly and feminine yet remained crisp. For some reason, I found that this brand had a strikingly similarity to Thakoon and held similar aesthetics. The colour scheme in this capsule was quite subdued simple which further contributed to the simplicity of this collection.

Although I enjoyed watching the perfectly tailored clothing on the runway, I felt that the music accompanied with it was frankly quite unnecessary and irrelevant. Putting Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" (a very overrated song which I strongly dislike) as the first track probably wasn't the wisest move and it honestly left me with quite a bad impression at the beginning of the show and put me off a little. Apart from that small negative comment, I really liked the clothing in this capsule and definitely look forward to see In Good Company's designs in the future.

Fur and Snow

Top - Hilfiger Denim
Jeans - Bik Bok
Fur  - Berlin
Scarf - Acne
Shoes - Doc Martin Serena

Winter is here! Short, snowy days have finally arrived, and Christmas isn't far. The biggest downside to this frosty time is that daylight is scare, meaning OOTDs are even harder to do than usual! 

Nevertheless, I am sitting in a giant bean bag in front of the cosy fire with a cup of hot coco by my side. Theres a gentle blizzard and bitter winds blowing outside, and a blanket of pure white snow laying across the small town in which I reside. If I were to walk outside right now, I would be dazed by a monumental volume of snow crystals and a holiday bliss. Just walking down the street you notice the merry, joyous atmosphere settling into your neighbourhood. The people rushing out to buy Christmas presents for their loved ones, and children playing gleefully in the snow. 

 However, the weather and the atmosphere aren't the only things I adore about winter. The fashion, obviously being a fashion blogger, is one of the most wonderful things about winter. What other season is it that allows you to wear fur, and big comfy jumpers, and wooly accessories. There is none other than winter! Winter really is the best season of all, what's not to love? 

I hope you enjoyed this post, tell me your favourite thing about winter!



3 Things I've Been Loving

1. FOOD// Macaroons

Ah, macaroons. This delightful little desert has taken my heart completely. Every chance I get I find myself reaching towards a box of sweet confectionary heaven. They come every different flavour under the sun, from pistachio to coffee. From the moment you put of these sweets into your mouth, theres an epic explosion of taste and textures. If you have a sweet tooth, I highly recommend giving macaroons a try!

2. BOOK// The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Fitzgerald is starting to become my favourite author. After being totally enchanted by The Great Gatsby, I felt inclined to read another of his great masterpieces. I won't say anything about the plot but this book is amazing! It isn't as good as Gatsby in my opinion, but it is a marvellous book!

3. PERFUME// Acqua Di Gioia by Giorgio Armani

I received this perfume for my 15th birthday from friends, and I have been obsessed with it since! I hardly wear perfume, usually I tend to lean towards by Victoria Secret Body Splashes, but this has become my everyday staple. The smell is so unique compared to my other perfumes. I often choose floral and girly perfumes so it came almost as a shock that I liked this one! I definitely think that everyone should go smell this!

What do think of these 3 things, tell me your 3 things down below!




Fur has pounced onto the runway like a panther in disguise. Once a material scarcely used by, is now a frequent visitor at all the F/W runway shows, as well as in our wardrobes. Fur has been used for centuries to keep warm, but has also been proven to ooze a little luxury into anyones life. Luckily, and since the invention of faux fur, whether you are an animal lover or a PETA-propeller, fur can be an autumn/winter staple. 

Fur can be found in so many different shapes and sizes, and colours. It can be found on the trim of the hood on a winter coat, or formed as a long, lavish scarf. Designers such as Marc Jacobs, Bryan Boy for Adrienne Landau, The Row, and Stella McCartney have all incorporated furry pieces into their RTW collections for this season. My personal favourites include the Knit-Mink Scarf by Bryan Boy for Adrienne Landau and a Raccoon Bed Jacket by Marc Jacobs.

Above are my favourite flocculent items for F/W. A hat, jacket, vest and scarf are quintessential furry pieces so I provided a faux fur option and a real fur option so that everyone can feel the flamboyant luxury and opulence that a fur piece can award a person with.

 What are your thoughts on real vs faux fur?


3 things I've loved

1. EVENT//Bali Green School:
Thanks to my school's very wide and extensive outdoor education curriculum, I am privileged enough to be able to travel to places all over Asia. Out of the 20+ choices and trips we could pick from this year, I decided pick the trip to Bali's Green School, which boasts an impressive title as being the most eco-friendly and greenest school in the world. Apart from the fact that I love Bali (who doesn't?!), I thought this trip would be less arduous than the other trips. It was more or less two weeks ago when I was in Bali's Green school. Having lived in a city my whole life, it took me quite some time to get familiar with the rural surroundings, especially using the compost toilets.Spending time with nature and its beauty was a very refreshing change from my daily distractions, and I surprisingly enjoyed the trip a lot more than I imagined. This school is far from most people's idea of Bali (think beaches and surfing), and is definitely a haven of tranquil paradise. From the 7AM yoga classes to hiking an active volcano, this school trip has proved to me that Bali has for more beyond to its exterior self of stereotypical beaches and shopping areas. Find more about the school here!

2. TV SHOW//The Carrie Diaries:
Set in year of 1985, where 'Ronald Reagen and shoulder pads were all the rage', The Carrie Diaries chronicles Carrie's life as a 17 year old teen juggling life between high school and New York. Aside from Gossip Girl, this is one of the few tv shows that manages to draw me into the characters lives. To be able to live Carrie's dramatic yet fun lifestyle would be a girl's dream come true. After months of waiting, the series has just come back for another season and I am officially hooked! For lovers of Gossip Girl, Jane By Design and Sex and The City,this is the show for you.

3. ACCESSORY//White watches:
Watch from Nikon//My own white watch from Anthropologie//Marc Jacobs Watch
Over the summer, I managed to develop quite a fetish for white watches. Nowadays, watches have often been discarded and replaced by phones. Watches are a timeless piece of jewellery, they are multifunctional in a way that they are both beautiful and useful. I had been coveting a watch like the one on the top right for quite a while already, but managed to score this beautiful watch in the middle instead. Thanks to incredible summer sales in England, I managed to buy this watch for just $15, which was way way cheaper than the Marc Jacobs one. I am in love with the gold and white colours, and it has definitely been my best summer buy.
