Contrasting Colours & Moroccan Inspired Motif

Hi everyone! What a dreary day today has been, and such a contrast to the beautiful warm weather we've received over the weekend! The difference is like day and night. No matter how many years I have lived in Melbourne, it still surprises me sometimes the way our weather turns on us. It's like a child's emotion - unpredictable =P.

Classic Suiting 101

Hi everyone! Hope you are looking forward to this weekend cos the weather is forecasted to be filled with sunshine.

I have noticed for a little while now that young female professionals have started the adoption of smart casuals over the once classic suiting combo. What was once a common clothing affair everyday, has been taken over by cute colourful blouses, smart casual blazers and pretty little skirts. Please don't get me wrong, I love the fact that us girls can get away with semi casual ensembles everyday, whilst most of our boys can't; and the fact that there are so many options and varieties to choose from for work.

Red Chilli Pants

Hi everyone! Hope you had a lovely break over the weekend and a smooth Monday! For many years now, I've been searching for a pair of red pants. Now, when it comes to the colour red, I am extremely picky. The shade must be just perfect to get my tick of approval. Too often, it is too dark, too light, too loud, too muted...omg, the list goes on. As you can see, the selection process was stringent and thus for the longest time, my wardrobe was red pants-less.

Ruffle Up Some Romance...

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great Valentine's day with your loved one or just with friends. Perhaps you discovered that you had a secret admirer all this time, or have finally worked up the courage to confess to your secret crush. However you spent the day, I hope there were many moments of laugher and giggles. If you managed to score some flowers, candy or gifts, well, that's just a bonus! :)

Unleash Your Power Shoulders

Hi everyone! Hope Monday has been treating you well! First day back from the weekend is usually a little harder, until we get back into the routine and charge on for the rest of the week. Today was an exciting day for me, as my team celebrated our first major milestone in launching a new product into the market. We are beginning to see the fruits of our labour! As we prepare ourselves for further battles ahead, I can't help but  wonder how we sometimes rely on fashion and clothing to project confidence. Whether it is the way the product makes us feel or the actual visual impact it creates, from time to time, we all need that extra boost to help and carry us through.  And there is no better boost than some power shoulder action!

Flower Power Blouse

Hi Everyone! I've had such a hectic week and am definitely looking forward to winding down over the weekend. Hope your week has been a little more manageable than mine :)

If I do an analysis of my wardrobe, I would conclude that I am definitely a blouse girl through and through. Having said that, during the earlier years of my working life, I loved shirts. I adored the clean silhouette they projected. Closely fitted to the body, crisp collars and cuffs are a must for me, in order to maintain an overall polished and professional look. However, over the years, my wardrobe and taste began to deviate away from the traditional corporate shirting range. One silk blouse at a time, the ratio of blouse vs shirt has shifted.

Bold Stripes with Layered Necklaces

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! True to Melbourne's reputation of having four seasons in one day, we had a crazy Sunday that was filled with gale force wind, rain and sunshine. We were out having Sunday brunch and literally after snapping some shots, the sky opened and down came the rain. But all is well in the end when the sun broke through and finally poked its cheerful face to greet us.

Working Neutral Colours with the McQueen Scarf

Hi Everyone! Hope you've all had a fantastic day! The temperature in Melbourne has cooled down a little over the past week, and this was exciting for me as I find dressing for work in cooler weather is a lot easier than dressing for scorching temperature.

I pulled out my Alexander McQueen skull scarf today and decided that today will be the day for a bit of scarf action! :) You should never underestimate the power of a scarf. It is effortlessly chic and elegant. When you choose the right colour combinations with a refined texture such as silk,  and tie it around your neck or even tie it on your bag, the look is classic and will never go out of style.
