Summer Light

In 35 degree heat there is not much to wear that’s chic and really cool. Except this super light black ruffle belted dress (similar) and Grecian disk sandals (Nine West) I never thought I would say it, but, it’s too hot for heels!!!! (I carry them in a little bag for meetings)

Stripes

Most of my winter clothes are black and grey. Which is chic, but can be dull. Stripes help give dimension.

I tried different colour pumps but anything other than black with black tights looks cheap, especially light colours.

One of the best wardrobe staples is a grey blazer because it goes with everything from high waist flares to cocktail dresses.

Add some J-Lo hoops for a bit of tame bling and a cute striped scarf  (similar) Dotty ring – Bangkok boutique

Black Ruffle-Neck Frock

Happy Friday All! I know black isn’t really a Friday colour, but I do so love this ruffle neckline – does that excuse me and my slightly heavy eye-liner? I promise some floral flamboyant number next week to make up for it.

Black Ruffle Neck Dress – Expressions (similar). Grey Jacket – Zara. Heels – Nine West. Zebra bracelet – Kate Spade. Ring – market – not totally similar but equally awesome. Hoop earrings – Accessorize

Rainy Dayz

Sometimes I like to crank-up the air-conditioning in my house just so I can simulate that cozy winter feeling and wrap myself in a blanket and sip hot chocolate. Winter doesn’t happen in Thailand, which, on the whole, I am grateful for. But I do miss winter fashion and fabulous coats. Today when I woke up it was raining. So I decided to fake it and do a coat post.

Tiger Coat – Guess? (Old) Similar Black Label Trench $89.98, similar Alice by Temperley Trench $525. Black long sleeve dress – Old, similar Calvin Klein Jersey Dress $109.44. Black peep toes – Nine West Flute $99

I am so in love with the silk turquoise lining, sometimes I take it out of my closet and stroke it.

We Love Bows

I like bows. Pretty, tasteful bows that double-up as belts. This dress has quite ‘severe’ lines (intimidating for meetings perhaps!)  so the waist belt-bow softens it nicely. The killer heels are a favourite, I am about 6ft7 in them but what the hell!

Nude peep toes – Aldo similar $70, Black dress – Espada
