What have I missed?

Yay! It’s been six months! I can’t believe I’ve made it this far : P
I want to thank you all for your sweet comments, following and returning visits. They mean so much to me : ) Okay, maybe it’s a little cheesy to put it that way. I have a giveaway coming up soon. Leave a comment and tell me what you guys are interested in getting!

Back to the outfit. I did a similar outfit earlier this year. I like to call this kind of layering the “superhero effect”, because it creates a cape-like effect when I’m walking and it feels like, well, superhero : P It’s definitely a fun way to dress up but try to stick with muted colours or it may look somewhat clowny. I got this Monki dress from last season. I don’t think they still have the exact same piece but they do have some versatile pieces for layering.

I’m kinda obsessed with ankle-length button-down shirt dresses this spring. From Stella McCartney’s Chilling in the Mediterranean type to Michael Kor’s Safari-inspired type, they just look effortless! I’m also in love with this peach peasant dress by Fendi. All you have to do is cinch it up with a skinny belt and slip on your favourite pair of sandals, and you’re all set!

I always like to layer a button-up shirt over my summer basics, but it always end up looking baggy. Autilia’s denim shirt with cut-out shoulder details is the perfect solution for a causal sexy look! I may not have Nicole Warne’s unique features or her perfect hair, but I’m happy to be inspired by her fabulous style.  I love the way she worn her sheer peach shirt and paired it with simple leather shorts. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication – for some people : )  Jennifer from Agogo Fashion is giving us the ultra-sexy superhero effect : ) You see, to conceal is to reveal in style. I’m a fan.

We all know about the devastating earthquake and deadly neuclear aftermath in Japan. What can we do apart from making donations and praying for those who are  facing the disaster. Sam from Sam is Home emailed Chictopia about her idea of wearing red as to commemorate all that has happened in Japan. Thanks to that Chictopia is now hosting a campaign called “Wear Red Wear Hope” in collaboration with the Red Cross.

“The fashion community can not only inspire what people wear daily, but we have a voice that can call other people into action at a time of crisis and loss.” – Sam from Sam is Home

My Wear Red Wear Hope outfit consists of a fruit and floral print Zara shirt, a midi H&M skirt in vibrant red colour and a Topshop straw hat with flower adornments – symbolising life and hope. I hope you enjoy this ourfit! Please spread the word and show your support for Japan!


Join Chictopia’s Wear Red Wear Hope Campaign by uploading a picture of yourself wearing one red item. Also, donate US$10 to Red Cross Japan earthquake and tsunami relief funds. For more detail please click here.
And now, my favourite Ladies in Red : )

This outfit is probably not very me… I mean Barbie peep toes? Princess pink? Shorts!!? Well, I’m open to all options you know. I’m loving these American Apparel shorts. They are probably the only pair of shorts that I would ever want to wear, because the bottom of the shorts are so wide they actually look like a skirt. (I got one size too big though, click here to see what I mean.) The pink heels are old ones, so if you want something like that I would suggest a pair with concealed platforms.

Here you go the second part of the jewellery feature. These delicate little pearl and silver flowers are Natalia’s signiture  designs, simple but they’ll never run out of fashion. She doesn’t know yet but I’m gonna ask her to design my wedding jewelry (NOT that I’m getting married anytime soon.) : P
Apparently the artist is on vacation at the moment, but don’t hesitate to leave her message if you want something. Check out her Blog/Etsy Shop/Facebook Page.

Marc Jacobs’ collection is probably my favourite show for Spring 2011, he really knows how to dress up a girl and make her feel pretty, even in the simplest clothes; I don’t really understand fashion, but Sonia Rykiel’s clothes make me happy. I mean, what are you looking for, if not good feelings? I have mixed feelings on DVF’s Spring collection, but the bold print and these skorts(?) have won me over.
