A shopaholic bitten by the travel bug

Category Archives: Fashion

I’m so excited about the Mary Katrantzou capsule collection for Topshop that will be in stores on February 17.

Having a streamlined wardrobe means every item we buy should be well edited. And I think my wardrobe is in need of a few vibrant pieces to spruce things up. This 10-piece collection features her signature colourful prints and structured silhouette that is closely similar to her mainline collection.

While I love every single piece in the collection, I’m not sure I can carry off the bowl dress. Although Susie from Style Bubble certainly did it with effortless ease and style.

But I think that jersey dress, cropped floral pants and vibrant print blouse are versatile pieces that adds a dash of vibrance and sunshine. Nothing like some colours to brighten you up and bring some cheer to people around you too, right?

I’m sure there’s gonna be throngs of people camping outside the oxford circus store the night before.  Perhaps I can try my luck online at at 8am and start hitting refresh. Crazy, huh.

Have you ever walked past a beautiful stranger
and turn your head back for a glance?
Or wondered if you could raid her wardrobe,
and wished you had a chance.

I love peeking into the closets of stylish folks {see previous post here}
Add Closet Visit to the list!

Take a look at the video they made.
So dreamy.

So whimsical.

So Alice in Fairyland.

Skip and dance leaving shiny trails. Glitters is such a brilliant way to glam things up. With some glitters and pva glue, it looks like almost anything can be made bright and shiny with a magic touch.

Here’s a roundup of simple DIY tutorials from some glittering creative bloggers for inspiration. Click on the link or pictures to see the tutorial.

1. Sweet glittering ballet flats perfect for dancing in the gardens.

2. Ruby red shoes reminds me of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz.

3. I love these glamorous sneakers for the city girl (me!).

4. An awesome video that shows you step-by-step in mixing the ‘magic glitter potion’.

5. Miu-miu inspired glittering collar from Refinery29

6. Glamorous gold clutch for that dinner party. Such a great idea from Julia to use a felt cloth for the bow. So pretty!

7. These glittering tights  are probably my favourite glitter DIY. I love the etheral look of the tights even if they can probably only survive a night. After all, Cinderella has to leave the castle when the clock strikes twelve.

8. And last but not least. A good way to use those left over glitters – glittering nails!

I came across this old post about ‘Secrets of french girls‘ from blogger Dead Fleurette  – why they always look so effortlessly chic.  It is a most interesting albeit lengthy article but totally worth the ten minutes spent reading it.

‘SALE’ is a formidable word that seem to throw all caution to the wind.  It makes everything seem to be a ‘good buy, best buy, must buy!‘.  And if you are an impulsive shopper like me, keeping the secrets of french girls in mind could help you to save some cash and wardrobe space for the special item that is truly worth it.

Bookmark the article and read it from time to time. Perhaps the next time you face an impulsive temptation, the article can help you to ‘resist the devil’.

And I hope it will save you from some headaches on this boxing day sale!

Opening Ceremony filmed a video series of the charming Chloe Sevigny and a peek into her closet in “AT HOME WITH CHLOË” for the latest Chloë Sevigny Resort Collection.

See her love for pink and inspiration from S&M accessories for the latest collection. The black zip-off godet dress that she is wearing is definitely on the top of my wish list for 2012. I can’t wait for the third installation of the series already!
