[LOTD] Neon Lights | Monochromatic City

Standard

A quick post while I am actually having a staycation treat for my husband.

We went out for some yummy fancy Chinese food for his birthday dinner and I took the chance to do some dressing up.

Monochromatic graphic print dress, Bysi

Neon green pumps (which looks fluorescent yellow in the pictures, gosh), Zalora

White bag, Fendi (previously featured)

I love how the print is so funky on its own that the simplicity of the cut stands out. The dress itself speaks volume so I didn’t accessorize much, just a simple silver necklace.

I swear it’s supposed to be neon green but it turns out looking totally different. Nonetheless, I was thrilled to have a chance to wear these funky shoes with the perfect dress. I bought this pair of shoes last year at a steal ($20) on a shopping portal which I have since boycotted. These shoes are so adorable and quite comfortable. I hope the beauty of the shoes would take the attention off my non-pedicured nails (oops)

Overall, I love how my outfit blended. It was not your typical date kinda outfit but I think it was both fashion forward and appropriate at the same time.

On an irrelevant side note, this is a sneak peek at what I bought for my husband (at least one of the items). I adore (pun fully intended) this Agnes b bracelet on my husband. It gives his outfit this unexpected pop and an added dimension to his metrosexual dressing. Now that I look at this picture, it actually looks like it came out of a comic strip!

Will be featuring my staycation in the next post on the Staycation diaries. Took lots of pictures to showcase this really awesome hotel! ­čÖé

[LOTD] – Life in Mono

Standard

Dressing monochromatic need not be boring.

Lately, I am rather inspired by one of my favourite bloggers, Cheesie and her EMODA outfits. Of course, I cannot pull off this look. I still have a day job which frowns upon too much adventure in personal style.

Instead, I decided to take the essence of EMODA (at least what I interpreted it to be) and make it work-friendly. Thus, the choice of colours was meant to be monochromatic but textured and layered to add some interesting accents to the outfit.

I do apologise for the poor lighting – I was unable to join my fellow contributors earlier and thus had to be contented with the indoor lighting of the cafe we had dinner at.

Chanel-inspired Pussybow Top: Fairebelle (www.fairebelle.livejournal.com)

Floral monochromatic Jeggings: Bugis Street (such a steal at $20!)

Gold-capped black patent ballerina flats: Zalora Sg

(I was in kickass Pazzion heels but I couldn’t bear to wear them out as the diamantes were slowly but surely dropping!)

Gold and white watch: A/X

A closer look at the pussy-bow detail. Love how the drapes of the top hid the terribly chunky arms of mine.

I have a weakness for pairing chunky watches with delicate outfits.

Looking forward to my Europe honeymoon as I am furiously planning all my outfits for my Winter Wonderland retreat.
