Day 6 features this girly outfit that makes use of gray and black. Gray top and leatherette skirt? Sounds very badass and rocker to me! Girly doesn’t always have to be pink and creamy all the time in my book. Sometimes the combination of certain unusual items can create a more interesting look than what we usually see.
Pair these items with a blue cardigan, a gold ribbon bag, and some cute yellow pumps and you’ll be surprised how much these dark-colored items can transform.
The black socks and yellow shoes combination was actually inspired by Minnie Mouse! I’ll be flying to Hong Kong for a holiday this October, and I can’t wait to go to Disneyland with one of my good friends. Maybe I’ll do an all-out Minnie-inspired outfit then!
Here’s a variation with an added pearl necklace, because it automatically adds a certain kind of elegance to a seemingly casual outfit. Recently I’ve been so tempted to bling all my clothes with pearl collars (ala my EMODA chiffon tops). Can’t seem to get enough of them!
Anyhow, I think this will be the last of my MOFW Singapore posts! Why I won’t do a Day 7 has something to do with limited resources - I don’t have any more new Singapore blogshop/brand items to feature, honestly. T_T Not bad for a first time though? Please do watch out for my next MOFW next month, where I’ll be doing a few days of Australian fashion posts after I post my travel diary to Melbourne!
Friday cheat day! I actually posted this some time ago, but I really waited for MOFW Singapore before I decided to blog about it. Tattle Tuesdays is another Singaporean blogshop that I absolutely love for their taste in classy pieces and sophisticated twist to basics, so I totally needed to include them in this mini blog event!
Who says bibs are only for babies? This one comes in a mature pale mint shade that you can dress up by pairing it with a coral skirt such as this one I’m wearing here (Don’t you love the unique design?), or dress down by wearing it with a simple pair or skinny jeans for a casual, daytime look.
I cinched it with a belt for a fake peplum effect, and wore simple accessories that you can never go wrong with. I’m sure by now you guys have noticed how much I love wearing pearl earrings, and accessories that aren’t too wild and crazy!
I would’ve worn nude or coral lipstick to match the skirt, but I decided to create a contrast to all the subdued colors by wearing red lipstick! I’ve been wearing a lot of mint and coral combination coordinates with pale lip colors, so I wanted to do something different this time.
Also, sorry for not uploading this last Tuesday. LOL
Subtle print-on-print on the 4th day of My Own Fashion Week, Singapore Edition! These shorts from Ellysage are quite a huge statement. The loud tropical print is quite unlike me, but I love it for being the first of its kind in my closet of black and white.
Since I don’t think loud print-on-loud print trend suits me well, I decided to play the shorts down a bit by wearing a sheer floral-print top and a light beige chiffon blazer that is actually quite nifty! Under sunlight, the floral print of the top shows through the thin fabric of the blazer.
Just to give this outfit a pop of color, I decided to turn to green and turquoise accents! I made sure there was a bright contrast between the color of the blazer and the color of the shoes, since I didn’t want to wear accessories (again) and this is one of my no-fail ways to make an outfit look interesting as is.
On the third day of MOFW, I decided to wear two things that I love - the color blue and outerwear. I’m one of those weird people who gravitate towards any kind of outerwear when in the midst of clothing. The temperature in this part of the world never becomes cold enough for coats to be acceptable and appropriate, but there’s never enough cardigans and blazers to combat the intense airconditioning we have in malls and establishments.
I tend to stock up on outerwear often because I like to balance my outfits out, skin exposure-wise. I love short shorts that show off my legs, so I usually cover my arms up as an attempt to save my conservative image (lol)
Super in love with this blazer that fits me perfectly! The silhouette is so me - not too shapeless, but not too boxy either. Just the right amount of chic.
"My Own Fashion Week" continues on its second day with a classic little black dress from My Spring Fling. The embellishments on the shoulders are a good alternative to neck jewelry, if you feel like only wearing arm candies for a cocktail event or a hot date!
It’s so easy to go over-the-top given the formal nature of the dress, but the length (thankfully not too short!) makes it casual enough to try pair with more relaxed elements. Pair this little black dress with clean eye make-up (recently I’ve only been wearing a thin winged liner and mascara) , wavy hair, trusty fits-with-everything black pumps and a simple silver clutch for an understated elegance.
Hope you guys are enjoying the concept so far! Maybe after the second MOFW, everyone (including myself) can get used to this. Looking forward to tomorrow’s post!
Welcome to the first day of MOFW Singapore! To those who missed my last post, I’m challenging myself to do “My Own Fashion Week” featuring clothes and brands from the country where I last made a travel photography diary. Luckily, I have quite a few gifts from Singaporean blogshops recently, so what better way to celebrate them than to create a mini-event on my blog! I’m so excited for it, since it’s also a motivation for me to blog everyday.
My next MOFW will be in October, after I post pictures from my recent trip to Melbourne!
This skirt! <3 Not only does it give me the illusion of hips (I’m like a shapeless tree trunk, btw), but the length is ideal for a fun office/work look. The color is a beautiful shade of mustard too, so it’s not overwhelming at all.
I matched it with a cream-colored top with a ruffle detail on the shoulder for an all-out girly effect. Sometimes I love breaking the symmetry of my outfits just so it won’t look too boring!
Because I wanted to start this new concept off with a bang, I decided to get in touch with my girly side again by wearing a pseudo-dress. It may look like a one piece, but the two separate pieces look like they are a match made in heaven. You can never go wrong with pairing a ruffle top and a chiffon drape skirt!
Test your creativity out by improvising! This look actually reminded me of an old pseudo-romper outfit that was born out of my lack of proper rompers in the color that I wanted.
