[Outfit] Mixed Monochromatic Patterns

I have been wanting to experiment wearing prints on prints but it just isn’t that easy to try to match them so that I don’t end up looking like I am in a costume and all ready to keep the kids entertain in a party.
Guess the easiest way out has just got to be sticking with the safest colors in the wardrobe, BLACK and WHITE.

The first layer is a polka dots tube and  a pencil skirt with diagonal stripes texture.

It isn’t very obvious in real life but you can see it quite clearly in the picture above.

Polka Dot Tube: Forever21, Pencil Skirt: Forever21

And threw on a nautical striped jacket and it doesn’t seem quite that bad after all.

At least I felt I could head to work in these.  :-p

[Outfit] Singapore National Day 2012 – Just Red & White

My work place is filled with people who are so fun and enthusiastic. 🙂

It was planned that we would go into the office in our outfits of reds and whites and have a team lunch gathering over high raved nyonya food.

The food was delicious! I had to stop myself from taking the third serving!

Singapore has developed and progressed so much in these 47 years and I wish for prosperity and growth for Singapore in many more years to come!

I love Singapore for its stability, security and efficiency. Many a times we take these for granted but will come to better appreciate them when we step out of the country.

Anyway back to my outfit, I wore a crochet sweater over a red dress, which I wore last Christmas. (as below)

And added a red skinny belt to give the top some definition else I would look like an overaged student heading to the library.

Wearing the crochet sweater proved to be quite a challenge ,even when it made of cotton and acrylic blend & sleeves rolled up, in the humidity of Singapore’s summer.

And on National Day itself, I headed to Ikoi for dinner after watching the National Day Parade on tv. I will be posting about the dinner in the next post.

With the ridiculous rumors spreading like wild fire about the demise of Mr Lee KY, although I doubt the creditability of the rumor,  it was still certainly a relief to be able to see him attend the National Day Parade.

I was in the mood for another day of red and white!

[Outfit] Spotted Again

It’s my outfit post again! And I promise the next post is not going to be my outfit post.

I must admit though that it is so much easier to do an outfit post as opposed to a travel or dining post. :-p

I love polka dots as they make an outfit a little more fun and a little more interesting. What more a dress with haphazard dots in two colours!

Photobucket

Love this dress as it is thick enough to weigh the dress down to give it enough form and it just makes me a happy girl wearing it.

Not forgetting the vintage vibes it gives. 🙂

[Outfit] Bow Wow Wow

I can never resist anything with the Ribbon Bow, much less a garment with three bows.

Plus it is in a flattering dusty pink shade.

Photobucket

This jacket makes me feel just a little more demure whenever I wear it.

I think it affects me in little ways  like how talk & walk. :-p

Half way through the day, I realised that my outfit could pass off as an elevator girl’s uniform in the prim and proper sense.

[Outfit] Tribal Too

It is another tribal inspired outfit and this was taken before my vacation in Vietnam too. Pardon how slow I am to update my blog!

I must get down to updating my blog proper soon else things life just moves on and I just feel too lazy to blog about them.

Anyway back to my outfit, this accordion pleated skirt was a gift from Beebops when he went to Thailand with the boys and it was worn by the villagers in Chiang Mai.

Photobucket

I love the skirt’s bright designs all around.

As I wore this outfit to work, I kept the rest of the outfit black and simple and threw on a black blazer in an attempt to make it look less casual.

Blazer: Zara, Tube Top: Victoria Secrets
