[LOTD] – Floral Peplum

Standard

It was a bright and sunny day, and what better reason to dress up for such glorious weather?

As you can probably tell by now, I love colours and prints. I am hardly shy of wearing both of them at the same time, and to add a cherry to the metaphoric icing, this lovely dress came in my favourite peplum style.

Here’s the break down of my outfit:

P1140844

Paintbrush-inspired floral peplum dress, H&M (yes, second H&M dress in a row)

Black pumps with stacked heels, Salvatore Ferragamo

Gold patent clutch, YSL

Necklace, Dior

Watch, Tissot

P1140850

It’s pretty safe to say that I adore this outfit. It was fitting for a lunch with girl pals and possibly a night out in town as well. It was versatile, and still pretty me. My broad smile probably says it all.

Yes, almost all that I was wearing were purchased during my Europe trip and I can truly feel the hole in my pocket. 😦

Battle of the Red Lipsticks – Chanel Rouge Allure vs YSL Rouge Pur Couture

Standard

The bold lip is usually seen on magazines and has become more wearable..Bye bye nude lips!

A red lip is a classic look but many women are often too afraid to wear it because it’s so strong. Today is a review of two red lipsticks that I have come to love…

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour in 08 Brilliant
Ultra-feminine and subtly provocative in the way it clicks open and closed, the new ROUGE ALLURE beauty step is a trigger of charm. Its black lacquered case opens with one click to reveal a sensual lipstick trimmed in gold for perfect application. Its supple, ultra-fine second-skin texture glides smoothly over the lips for a satiny and perfectly luminous makeup result. Shea butter combined with a canola oil derivative provides softness and comfort.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Pure Lip Colour in 35 Rouge Vernis
A new-generation lipstick inspired by Monsieur Saint Laurent’s iconic color palette—red, fuchsia and orange—in a collection of captivating couture shades that offer each complexion a customized look. Enveloped in a luxurious gold case designed by Creative Director Stefano Pilati, Rouge Pur Couture speaks elegance. Lips are saturated with intense, stay-true color, thanks to the Coloreveal Technology while natural extracts provide comforting moisture that lasts all day. Provides medium to full coverage with a radiant, satin finish. SPF 15.

My Review
I got the Chanel first and it’s a nice red that looks darker (oxblood) in the bullet and yet the colour is sheer when applied. This color is buildable so it’s a good red to ease into. The packaging is also sleek with the click to reveal the bullet.

The YSL is super pigmented and I don’t even need a lipliner for this. And it’s super lasting! The forumula is moisturizing enough that I don’t even feel the need for a lipbalm before application. Overall, I prefer the creamy texture of YSL and it feels luxuriously soft and sexy on my lips. It is also pricier at sgd45!

The red lip is extremely wearable with white or black outfits. Try it!

Footwear Fever – Summer Neutrals

Standard

Summer is here and as the days get hotter, I’ve been lusting over these gorgeous, weather appropriate footwear.
ASOS POSIE Satin Wedges With Ankle Ties

Wedges with the removable satin ribbons in a very flattering neutral color. Imgine this with an A-lined skirt or cropped cigarette pants. Gorgeous!


Yves Saint Laurent ‘Tribute’ Sandal

Or if u prefer a less teetering & more comfy walk, opt for the 4″ sandal.
Yves Saint Laurent ‘Tribute’ Platform Sandal

Ok, these are a classic and not only confined to summer. Would love to have these in my collection

Could be a collector’s item one day

Guess which Olsen is rocking the YSL sandals. I personally love the one in brown.

Repetto BB metallic textured-leather ballet flats

I love Repetto flats maybe because they make actual ballet splippers. The shoes always mold to the shape of your feet without any pain. Although it might be too flat with no cushioning, not a good idea to wear if you’re doing alot of walking. I personally added another sole on the bottom and found it slightly better.


Pour La Victoire Mai Wedge Pumps


Ok, these might look like the first pair from ASOS but they are different I assure you. This wedges from Pour La Victoire has a tapered wedge which looks slimmer from the sides. My bf doesn’t like the bulky look of wedges cos it’s not as flattering as stilettos. This might be THE ONE. To make your legs look even longer, it’s elegantly pointed.

Aint that gorgeous…ahhh

ZARA LAMINATED CHAIN SANDAL

These will be perfect with Maxi skirts or dresses with the right amount of bling.

SANDAL WITH METHACRYLATE HEEL

Don’t you just love that heel…ahhhh

I can never find decent ZARA shoes in Singapore…and I see them all over the internet. rawr!

Ok, I realise that ALL of them are in neutral earthy tones. But in my defense, you can’t go wrong with any of them cos they will be flattering on almost everyone 🙂
