Keep'em Separated


If there's one high-end brand which I can relate most to, it would be Céline. I find myself liking their designs a lot and I would feel very comfortable wearing their styles. I am inspired by one of their recent Resort 2015 design (picture below), so I decided to wear something similar today. Instead of pants, like the picture, I replaced it with culottes instead. I layered my outfit with this vest from Topshop which I bought some time ago but had yet to wear them. 

If you are to pick one high-end brand, which one can you relate best?

Precious Moment With Dior


I have a story to tell. A story about Dior's jewelry. The story that was shared from the house of Dior to its staff members all over the world and now to me by a few wonderful ladies and gentlemen in Ion Center, Singapore.

As always, I walked in to some of the warmest smiles, and that felt so welcoming. They sat me down, made me feel comfortable and served me tea and a fruit platter. Then, the story began.


Once upon a time, about 25 years ago, the house of Dior found Victoire de Castellane. She is the mastermind behind all the bling and blitz for Dior. She could magically transform gemstones into beautiful jewelries that are luxurious and desirable. Come, let's take a tour through my photos and let me show you some of her gorgeous "touch" to these jewelries. These pictures don't do much justice, as the actual products are much more glamorous!

Dotted Shirtdress


Lately I've seen many people wearing a shirtdress. I personally loved it! It's really versatile and I can use it to style it in many ways. I can wear it as is, like my pictures, or layer it with shorts and tops. I'm trying to look for a brown belt to match it with this shirtdress but have yet to find one that I really like.

If you have a chance, you should totally check out some apparels from Levi's. They've really cool designs lately. I've worn them here and here. This shirtdress is truly comfortable for summer weather.

 What do you think of a shirtdress? How would you style it?

Rose Finale


Some time ago, L'Oreal Paris sent me a box of lipgloss with multiple shades in it. I'm wondering if all the shades would look good on me. Being on the yellow undertone (warm) side, some colors doesn't flatter me at all. I'm glad the L'Oreal Paris team had done their research before sending me these goodies. 

Today, I'm in the mood for Rose Finale (#102). I actually downloaded these pictures from my Snapchat! YES! I finally bend for this new social media. I've been secretly using Snapchat for almost 3 weeks now and I like it! My Snapchat account is stilettoesdiva

Do you have a snapchat account? If you do, add me and have a look at how I applied this lipgloss. Let me know your account and I will be your friend there too =)

All Black


Almost all black actually. The denim is actually grey. I've heard from somewhere that Parisians love black. Black is black for them. There is no any-other-color-is-the-new-black. 

I took these pictures in Paris. That was like almost 3 weeks ago. Where did the time go? I remember wearing this outfit to La Fayette shopping gallery and went to the shoes department. A sales associate in Dior shoe counter saw my Dior Fusion sneakers and commented that she really like my sneakers. She also asked if I would like to look at the new series of Fusion. I took a look at it and thought to myself, hmm...I think I still like my version of Fusion. The new one somehow doesn't look as good to me.

What do you think? Do you like the older version of Fusion (like mine) or the latest?

La Mer Skincare

Crème De La Mer. 
When we were in Paris earlier this month, I bought some La Mer skincare to give it a try. I've heard a lot of good things about it so I'm curious. Here are my verdict of these 3 products.

1. Cleansing Gel - This gel cleanser is definitely very gentle on the skin. One pump is all it takes to cleanse the entire face and neck area. I've always been a foam cleanser user so when I switched to this, at first, it felt like my skin wasn't clean thoroughly. It has this silky finish. After a few wash, I got used to it and it's actually great to keep my skin hydrated without stripping off the natural moisture. 

2. The Concentrate - La Mer claim that this is a savior of the skin. I would have to agree with them. The Concentrate is created to soothe your skin from irritation, redness caused by microdermabrasion and laser treatments. I love the silicon texture on my face. At first I applied it only on my dark spots  and acne scars. I saw the changes! My dark spots and scars lighten after 2 weeks! Then, I got greedy and applied it on my entire face since I love the scent and texture. That's when the red bumps and blemishes started appearing. Well, they were not kidding when they named this product The Concentrate. It's strong! Now, I'm back to just applying on the spot. Just like what they advised =D

3. Moisturising Gel Cream - This ultralight edition from the original Crème De La Mer is refreshing and kept my skin hydrated. I chose the gel version because I've a combination to oily skin and it is ideal for tropical weather like Malaysia. So far, it didn't clog my pores nor cause any breakout. I love how it has this matte finish and isn't sticky.

In conclusion, La Mer products are definitely on the pricey side, but put the price aside, their products are great for someone who wants to slow down the process of aging on their skin. I've tried it for a month now and my skin did feel firmer and hydrated. If you have any questions you would like ask about the products, do not hesitate to leave your questions on the comment section below. I will try to share my opinion with you.

Have you tried La Mer products before? If you have, what do you think of it?

Monday Again


Monday can be pretty moody for me. Especially when you get up to a rainy morning. It's kind of hard to get the engine started. Last Monday, I decided to take a day off and head off to do my manicure and pedicure. I went to BMIC Nail Spa at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. I've had a great experience there previously and would gladly be a returning customer. 

I picked a blush pink for my toes and decided not to color my fingernails. I'm a very clumsy person and I would almost always destroy the freshly done manicure. I went window shopping after since everywhere is going on a sale now. 

How has your Monday been so far? Any blues?

Thankful


Yesterday I had lunch with a blogger friend, Jeann (Luminej). Since we are both bloggers, we talked about blogging of course. Among the topics we talked about, she mentioned the importance of photography and a photographer. Many bloggers have their husband/boyfriend/siblings/friends etc etc etc to take beautiful pictures for them. 

Some famous bloggers such as Chiara Ferragni (The Blonde Salad) and Nicole Warne (Gary Pepper) have professional photographers as their partner. Another beautiful blogger, Jessica Ricks (Hapatime), also have her sister and boyfriend to take beautiful pictures for her. As for me, I do not have a professional photographer. I considered myself lucky to have a patient boyfriend who wouldn't mind taking pictures for me ever since my blog started. We both learned about photography along the way and try our best to create better quality pictures. I don't think I could thank him enough for dealing with my shit and demands behind the lens. So much credit should be given to him. 

What about you? Who capture the beautiful pictures for your blog?

Red Alert


I love a long cardigan since last year. I had the same one in blue which I brought it to Australia last year (post here). Now, this one in red I wore it few weeks ago in Paris. It was mid of spring then and when the wind blows, it can get a little chilly. By now, the temperature has gone up so thick cardigans aren't necessary anymore. 

It can be quite tricky to do layering when temperature rises. Would you still do layering in the summer?

Event Companion


I've been eyeing on some Bottega Veneta's clutches ever since I attended their recent Spring/Summer 2015 launch (post here). When I travelled to Europe, I stopped by La Fayette Paris and checked out the Bottega Veneta store and found this perfect clutch! It made my heart skipped an extra beat that's for sure. Albeit it's a little on the heavier side, it still look so good and elegant. I had a choice between the silver tone and the gold tone, I picked the latter because the color's unique. I'm a happy customer =)

What are you choices of clutches? Do you like beaded clutches (like these)? Metal, leather or satin clutches?

What are your thoughts? What would you pack for a spring vacation?

Street Style


OK, so my Scandinavian escapade has ended and now, I'm back to work. In the back of my head, I'm singing to the song by Soul II Soul - Back to life (clap) Back to Reality, Back to the here and now (yeah)! Gosh, it's really hard to get the engine started. I shouldn't complain though. The getaway was a great one and definitely fulfilling. I'm sure you've seen some of my pictures from the previous post (here). I hope you've enjoyed the pictures as much as I do.

Talking about cropped top, lately it is everywhere! As Karl Largerfeld said "The waist is the new cleavage!". I actually love this 2 pieces thingy but by wearing these, I've to make sure I don't over-eat. Else, the bulge wouldn't be too appealing. I know cropped top is not for everyone but what do you think of it and how would you style it?

Spring Layering


After coming back from the Scandinavia, I'm inspired by spring layering. I was there mid of spring and it was kind of cold still, so I had loads of chances to do layering. Now that I'm back to this hot weather, layering can still happen but with thinner materials. 

Instead of sweater, I replaced it with cropped tops and sleeveless blouses. On top of these blouses, I could either layer it with a sleeveless or denim vest. As for the bottom, wearing it with shorts or skirts wouldn't be a bad idea after all. Booties can now be replaced by gladiator sandals or gorgeous heels. There are so many choices don't you think?

That 70's Show


I'm sure many of you realize that 70's style are back! Can't help but to love those flare jeans and pants! I bought this pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans few years ago and I loved it so much! They're comfortable and so stylish. The only thing I must always remember is not to wear this pair of jeans when I need to board the plane. Going through the security at the check-point was a pain-in-the-ass! I've been stopped twice for thorough body check due to the studs at the pockets which made the machine beeped like crazy! 

If you're wondering why I'm still wearing a turtleneck at this time of spring? Well, I was in the Stockholm and it was still pretty chilly especially when there's wind. What do you like most from the 70s style?

Snoopy & Lucy


I believe some part in me, just don't want to grow up. When I saw this hoodie from Uniqlo, I grabbed it and proceed to the counter immediately. I know.....this are kiddo's stuff but to me, they are fun stuff! I've always loved Snoopy and till today, I still love Snoopy. 

Today, I'm going to show you another part of Copenhagen called Christianhavn. We visited this church called Church of Our Saviour. It is a very unique Baroque style church from the 17th Century. When we were there, the clouds were settling in and in one of the picture, you can see the rain pouring.

Coated Denim


Don't be fooled by the weather when it comes to the Scandinavia. It might be mid of spring now and my pictures looked like it's bright and sunny, but when the wind kicks-in, it's very chilly actually. That's the reason why I'm still in sweaters, boots and with a scarf. It's definitely necessities when it comes to visiting Copenhagen.

I recently bought this pair of coated denim from Citizens of Humanity. It looked like leather but it's not. This denim is extremely comfortable and it kept me warm through the wind and all. It is true to size and fits me perfectly! This is the first time I'm trying a pair of denim from Citizen of Humanity and I would definitely go back for more.

Karlito Capsule Collection


When I first saw Karlito hanging on the Fendi bags at the runway, I wanted it so badly!! It was sold out almost everywhere when it was first launched. When I went online to check it out and read more about it, I actually had a second thought in purchasing one.

A Karlito is made from a combination of goat fur, mink fur, silver fox and lamb leather. I'm not sure what's the market price so I googled it and found out from Stylecaster that it's selling at $1,685 and there's a huge waiting list for this. In fact, the price and waiting list isn't the main factor that made me stopped and think. It's the fact that mink and silver fox fur were used to create this cute little thing. There are many brands that used lamb skin, goat fur and rabbit fur for their accessories and that's fine with me as we eat their meat too. What about fox and mink?
