The Slip On Edit



After another long hiatus, and getting super sick consecutively over a week, I figured I should start posting
again to make up for the absences! I really wish I could promise you that I would post more regularly now,
however, I will be taking my SATs and end of year exams next month, so I can't guarantee you'll see more
posts :(

Anyway, lets talk about slip ons! I've been loving this trend so much, even though I may not be the type
to pull it off. I can tell you the women's section has way more choices and way more styles that I like - i.e.
the Céline black pony hair ones, but agh! I wish they had my size. But the slip on trend is also becoming
very popular amongst the menswear world! So I picked a few bright and statement slip ons above, as well
as some dark, simple styles to edge up a look!

1. These croc embossed Jimmy Choos are to die for! They absolutely suit my craving for black and textured
croc! Hopefully I can get that amazing croc printed KVA shirt along with it!
2. These oily teal blue leather slip-ons from Common Projects are great! Its a great 'unexpected' shade
of blue to pull off! And I just love how soft the leathers are Common Projects works with.
3. Bright coral red slip ons from Lanvin is the way to go if you want to stand out in the crowd!
4. I just love the contrast between the sleek polished black leather against the rough unrefined canvas material
of this Mcqueen slip on.
5. Never be to shy to pull of a print with Mugler
6. For a more winter appropriate selection, opt for these Jil Sander brown suede slip-ons.
7. Similar to the Lanvin coral slip-ons, try pink leather with MMM!

The Backpack


I thought I'd start doing posts like this, so you guys can decide to save, spend or splurge! So obviously,
save would be the low budget purchases, spend would be mid range purchases and splurge would be out of
the budget investment pieces for yourself! I will be doing these series for the most basic staple items and giving
you ideas to edge up a rather common style.

So here is my first 'Save Spend Splurge' of the backpack. Here, I go through the options for a classic navy,
and the animal - incorporating the rather 'trending' leopard and croc! Hope you like this and be sure to stay
tuned for more posts!

Here are the links to these gorgeous backpacks!

Céline SS14




Before I go on posting on the Fall Winter 2014 Menswear shows, lets take a minute to enjoy these Céline 
SS14 beauties. At first, when I saw the accessories on the first showcase, I have to admit, I didn't really 
like it. I know I shouldn't ever doubt Ms Philo, but once I saw the campaign and these photos, I just died 
a little. I was a bit worried about all the colours, but of Phoebe Philo and her team did an incredible job
with these! First of all, those bright coloured bags, the trapeze and the iconic box bag...just wow. Then
the new triangle bag design. Although it might hurt your arm because of the metal detailing, but its such
a clever design! Anyway, I'm dying to visit the Céline stores now, so come join me?

Happy New Year


2   0   1   4


Happy New Year guys! I hope you had a great time in 2013 and made all your resolutions you set for yourself!
2013 flew by so quickly! 2013 was a challenging year. Not only the exams made it tough, but also trying 
to stay focused and being a better person too. 

Now on to 2014! I have been neglecting my blog way too much ( I am obsessed with 1 month hiatuses. 
jokes ) , therefore this coming year I hope to post more often and know more about you guys. Maybe even 
giveaways! I have a few things coming up that I'm really excited for, so be sure to stay tuned for it all. 
I really hope you all make some wonderful 2014 resolutions and enjoy this coming year like its your last! 

I'm doing this off my head, but my resolutions for this year would be:
1. At the end of the day, think of all the good things that has happened and forget all the negatives!

2. Find my own personal style, maybe tackle the monochrome looks?

3. Build up the confidence to finally make outfit posts ( I doubt it though ;) )

4. Be more organised and more hardworking! Trying my best at absolutely everything.

5. Cut down on the caffeine. (This past year I drank way too much coffee and tea, its time to drink more 
H20!)

6. Cut on spending and get investment pieces instead.

7. Be more true to myself and more genuine in everything I do!

8. Talk more and make more friends! 

9. Build on family relations! I love my fam so much! 

10. I can't really think of anymore now...I'll get back to you guys soon!


HAPPY NEW YEAR!
