For My Amusement

Cute little French top – which is perfect because I live in the Former French Concession in Shanghai. I do so love a theme.

T – Zara. Skirt – Promod. Boots – Mango Touch. Sunglasses – RayBans

Cute Collar

I’m back!!! Sorry, it has been nearly two entire weeks of blog-less-ness which had me waking in a panic in the dead of night. Just one of those things where there isn’t enough time with work, travel and a holiday all tagged together. Tokyo rocked my world, the fashion is fantastically quirky and the people wonderful. I am in love with it and hope to do a shoot from there soon.

Found this awesome little top – don’t you just love the collar and three lace lines!? It’s good to be home 🙂

Top – Jaspal. Skirt – Mango. Heels – Nine West Caress. Bracelet – Kate Spade. Earrings – Accessorise (old, similar)

 

 

The Black Pencil Skirt

A well-fitted black pencil skirt is probably the most versatile item in a working girls wardrobe. A good waist band is essential, no digging-in allowed. I added a simple grey jacket, which made the look more formal, and some patent heels which are very ‘Kate Middleton’ and surprisingly comfortable.

Nuts for Dots!

To counter-balance my recent obsession with stripes, I have decided to dedicate this blog post to huge, bold, delicious dots! I have also been preparing for a week in Bali, Indonesia, and have been testing out different combinations of stylish yet comfortable looks.

Am a huge fan of loose, pretty tops paired with short mini skirts for beach side vacations. And for work actually, just depends on the fabric and colour. Black mini for work, denim for holidays. The loose tops are versatile for both.

I added a pale yellow neck scarf today, because I have a super air-conditioned office and need to keep my neck warm.

Yellow Neck scarf – Mango $25

Hot Pink Bag – Kate Spade

Zipper Skirt

I adore this mini skirt from G2000, Promod. It’s the perfect length and the waist band doesn’t give you a muffin top. I LOVE the gold zip at the back.
Looks great with loose t shirts and any basic heel or peep toe. Add bold jacket for extra Voom!
