Stripes and Colour

I love how the naughty luminous tangerine is peeking out from underneath this little jacket, like it has an attitude of its own.

Cropped jacket – local designer (similar). Lumo T – Gap. Black Mini – Mango similar. Peep Toes – Nine West Flute. Bag – Kate Spade old collection (same colour, new style) Turquoise earrings – local market (similar)

 

 

 

Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. – Cecil Beaton

I am in Singapore at the moment, and guess what? So is Kate Middleton!!! How fabulous is that? Anyway, back to my blog (Kate Kate Kate…who wore a Singaporean designer dress) This gorgeous jacket from Jaspal (only available in Thailand and Malaysia) is so lovely and chic (like Kate), with a dress, pencil skirt or even jeans. And I adore their packaging and cute free IPhone case gift to celebrate four decades. Don’t you just love cute freebies and awesome packaging? and Kate?

 

 

 

 

 

Colour Clash

I have always admired women who successfully combine contrasting fabrics and prints. At the same time I inwardly cringe at their boldness – gasping as spots as stripes collide and suede and silk over-lap. And as for florals and animal prints * silent scream * But when it works, it is outstanding. ‘Atlantic Pacific’ does it beautifully in her ‘Stripes & Florals’ post. It inspired me to give it a go. And you know what? I kinda like it!

Crazy-print silk blouse – Jaspal. Black and white cropped jacket – Thai designer, similar with long sleeves Forever21. Black pencil skirt – Zara. Peep Toes – Nine West. Green leather satchel – Jaspal. Earrings – Thai designer, almost exact from Nordstrom
