Let's Do The Charleston!














Whilst all merry making seem to be over in the west with the turn of the clock to 2018, here in Asia, we are preparing to welcome the Lunar New Year - the Year of the Dog. Traditionally people would wear auspicious colours of bright red, pink, orange or even yellow in traditional style clothing items for this occasion. However these days with the new generation, the rules have now changed. Many preferring to wear other types of clothing and even designs which lay a twist on our traditional garb.

So whilst I would still be wearing a chinese cheongsam or qipao in those auspicious colours for the first few days of the new year but glitter and sequins would still be a nice call for an evening dinner with friends!

This lovely dress and bag from Dresslily suits me perfectly in terms of the length, the tassels at the hemline, and the lovely comfortable sheath cut which got me in the mood to do the " Charleston". Just a pity I could not find a nice headband to get the whole 1920s Gatsby look going. I must admit this is a nice item to have in the closet for those theme dinner parties or even Halloween!
You can check out the variations of colours for this lovely dress and bag with the links below.

Have fun shopping!

Showing A Little Shoulder












It's tradition before the Lunar New Year that we spring clean our homes and basically throw out the old to bring in the new. So running through my wardrobe, I found this skirt I had owned for awhile but hardly worn and decided to style it with this shoulder baring floral blouse. I'ts hard to throw out the old - let me tell you. You can also check out my other look styling this skirt here.

As many stylists are hoping, shoulder baring or off shoulder tops would be one of those trends to leave behind in 2017 as it's been around for quite awhile, and so before the seasons change, thought I would style all of these tops before they land in the Goodwill stores or get recycled.

What do you think? Would you still like to see shoulder baring tops and off shoulder tops continue trending into 2018?

Velvet Crush











Hi everyone and Happy New Year again!

Whilst many of you are coping with the snowstorm in Northern America, we were lucky to have made it out and back to the east for the new year. I wish those affected by the storm to keep safe and warm.

Velvet has always been my favourite fabric for the wintery months. It somehow exudes an old school charm, pure elegance and has a classic air about it. So  here's a slightly warmer style one can trend with velvet.

Frills and Ruffles


















As the year draws to an end, so does my vacation in Florida. So to close the year with a little bang, sharing some pictures of a well deserved plaque which my mother in law had earned at the Circus Hall of Fame ( similar to the Hollywood Walk of Fame). As a well known circus performer, she was recognised for her contributions and her act to the Circus industry and we are so proud of her.

I hope you enjoy this Korean style look I present in this post ! A lover of frills and ruffles, I could not help putting both together in this outfit post. I especially love this cute culotte from Shein.com with ruffle straps, which could be easily mix and match.

Will be on a flight soon heading home so in case I miss wishing you on time - here's a Very Happy New Year to all of you and may 2018 bring you good health and success in all you do!
