[Rocking the Rockin']

Re-introducing my new babies: Jeffrey Campbell's Rockin ♥ 
Got it on my Spore's trip back in 2011 (feels like so long ago already :p), in a concept store called ActuallyActually located in Purvis St. (love the store! it's like HK's I.T)
Hope to purchase 2nd pair of JC soon, but still in dilemma mode: Lita or Nightwalk?
The 1st stroll at Esplanade ♪♫

And I also got the military trench that I've been wanting since I saw Brown-Eyed-Girls' Ga-In sporting it at her solo-album promo, then Kang So Ra in one of WGM's episode. 너무 행복하다! :D
 Military Trench - F21/Cosmic Kimono - Dot D'Tails/Tribal Top - F21/Khakis Shorts - F21/Disco Jane on a Leash crossbody bag-Marc by Marc Jacobs

To be honest, JC's Rockin is not made for strolling around.  In just about ±40min, the "beauty is pain" term is applied.
So, we went to Max Brenner's, to give these feet a rest and had ourselves a chocolate boost
A little hot & cold treat for the afternoon.  The Italian dark choco tasted damn good and rich, yet the 80's milkshake suited my child-like taste better :p
And most of the time, I got stuck in adoring the cuteness of the Hug Mug and Alice cup. *a 1st timer's syndrome*But the "drink me" cup's content didnt make me shrink, it made me grew wider instead :(

1st time tryin and got all greedy bout it *blush*

[Channeling: Alexa Chung at House of Holland F/W 2012 Show]

1. UNIQLO W's Mid Gauge Merino Cashmere V Neck Cardigan/2. ZARA Flower Print Trousers/3. JEFFREY CAMPBELL Thelma Shoes/4. ASOS Quilted Lock Across Body Bag/5. TOPSHOP Teardrop Mask Pendant/6. TOPSHOP WrapBalls Ring
Fear not of looking like slumber party-ing in print trousers!! 
Rock it like the recently-appointed-British Fashion Council Young Style Ambassador, Alexa Chung. 
Spotted at London Fashion Week (day #2) in House of Holland F/W 2012 Show, Chung engineered a paisley-print trousers (that was inspired by spending morning in bed, as she said) with just a plain gray cardigan and her usual mini Chanel slingbag.
But it was not Alexa if not being quirky.  Metallic peeptoe platform, unique yet simple accessories, and "the all-seeing-eye" manicures were added to complete the whole look.

Guess the BFC made the right choice by giving the "fancy title" to this fashion genious, the CHUNG

P.S.: here's the tutorial to her magnifique eye nails *here*

[New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2012: Street Style Fête]

One thing that I enjoy the most from fashion week is watching these fashionistas gallivanting from one show to another with their fabulous style.

Here are the street style round-up from New York Fashion Week that held me captivat
Vibrant colors were everywhere, but the white nuance offered by Hanneli M. and Susie L. that got me jaw dropped.  The architect-ed Simone Rocha oxford of Susie L. is killing me softly, I mean like "gosh what a beauty".  And Hanneli's biker-gone-saint style with a hint of blue from Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti coat, reminds me of cotton candy.

Alexander Wang heels, print trousers, neon-colored bags, and all that jazz.....#rainbowdrool

Cant get enough of the former fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar's style.  The Miroslava Duma
Aiming at London Fashion Week now *excited*

[Trendspotter New York Fashion Week: Cat Lady Much]

Couldnt help but noticed this cute cat sweater that kept on appearing in New York Fashion Week's Street Style.  It's no other than The Glamour x Opening Ceremony Cat Sweater.

Bloggers and editors such as Hanneli Mustaparta, Kelly Framel, Susan Cernek, and Susie Bubble had given their own touch on this feline-nous sweater before it was launched on Feb 15. *a plausible marketing strategy from glamour and opening ceremony*

Love the all white with a little pop of purple.  I'm especially in love with the white leather biker-gloves

Susie from stylebubble always rocks every patterned clothing she has on.  Her cat-shades and Simone Rocha's unique heeled-oxford also get to me.

Flirty preppy or classic preppy?

The price of this sweater is US$99, relatively affordable indeed (compare to the other items on Opening Ceremony).  You can get it at Opening Ceremony.

So, what do you think of this sweater?  Will the reign of cat continue?

[For the Love on Valentine's Day]

♪♫ Love, it's a special day
We should celebrate and appreciate
That you and me found something pretty neat
 And I know some say this day is arbitrary ♪♫

Happy Valentine to you all ♥
Let's us celebrate this day with people we love, wholeheartedly.
No matter if you're single or double, in this special day..let's share our love :)

Theme for my outfit(s) today is heart on heart.  Got the inspiration from the symbol of this very day and the importance of putting your heart in every little things you do.
Today's main star is my All is Full of Hearts Cropped Jacket by H&M (spotted this jacket in Edward and Bella matrimony *teehee*) 
1. I'm goin nude :p  The point of this look is to look subtle with a little twist in the pattern and material. Also, never grow tired of collar, I combined my shirt with my pearly detachable collar.
(P.S.: mom's vintage never fails me ^^)
Heart Jumpsuit - Mom's Vintage/shirt - H&M/white polkadot stocking - UO/Pearl Bracelet - Accessoria Nerve

2.  In this look, I play with both color and pattern to add more color in this V day other than pink+red (tho' this color combo is damned hype right now).  I just cant seem to get enough of turquoise (the matching nails and skirt are not on purpose :p)  And the point of this second look is to look more girly but still daring.
Floral Top - Topshop/Love Pocket Skirt - Topshop/Bracelet -Van Cleef and Arpels/Flats - Tory Burch
Lovin my skirt to the deep! I've got a pocket full of love~

Make peace and love, not war.


[Afternoon Tea Diary: Arteastiq]

"I got nasty habits; I take tea at three." - Mick Jagger

Well well well, I take it at three as well. At three PM to be exact.  It's called afternoon tea

On my last visit to Singapore, made a stop at artistiq to have a sip of indulgence.
The atmosphere was just great that day, it was raining outside and  we got a table by the windows.  Enjoying every moment of it.

Ordered my favorite, as usual: Earl Grey Tea.  Decaf-ed it a bit with a sip of Monet (rose tea with vanilla ice cream).

 Monet *we ♥*

The afternoon tea set was kinda disappointing, looked spacious and not tempting.  The taste was also so-so.

For sweet-tooth craving, we got the recommended green tea choco lava.  But the lava got hardened cos we left it too long chitchatting, otherwise it wud taste fantastic. (P.S.: the serving was not that tempting as it was in the menu *duh*)
