Lost and Found

Do you know that saying "If you love someone, set them free. If they come back to you, it's meant to be."? Well, such is the case of this lost pants that was reportedly missing after my US trip last year here. *grins*

Seriously, it's not like I made up that story but it just so happened one afternoon last April when I found it magically hanging by the stair handrail in all its newly ironed shiny glory. I had a lot of questions in my mind but I stopped asking and simply welcomed it back to my life. :D

So before you judge me as someone who makes up stories where in fact she's just too careless about her clothes, let me tell you how a black skinny jeans should be your classic closet staple. The dark wash is inherently polished and can be paired with a chic blouse and blazer combo for me at work or as seen in the case here: my off-duty life (staycation in Solaire) or casual Friday (catching international DJ Armin Van Buuren). One thing that's common in the two photos? The high-rise skinny jeans worked well with bodysuits. :) Let me leave that as a style tip for you. ;)

Arriving at Solaire:
Bodysuit: Zalora; Pants: Dorothy Perkins; Dress: H&M; Shoes: Vincci

DJ Armin Gig at Valkyrie Club:
Bodysuit: Topshop; Pants: Dorothy Perkins; Shoes: Mango

Zaful Holiday Dresses

It's officially holiday party season and most likely you got your social  calendar full with all the soirees and shindigs and even wedding-related events (yes, here it is quite popular!) I know sometimes it's easy to reach out for the usual little black dress (LBDs) but here below I present to you the party silhouettes that are stylish and celebrity-approved? Here are the five types of dresses you can pick from and I've sourced from Zaful. :)

The Sparkly Dress
Coz what's a holiday party without something sparkly? ;)

The Sheer Dress

A popular red carpet choice.

The Slip Dress
Very on-the-moment and can easily be dressed up and down.

The Maxi Dress

Perfect for more formal events, a wedding perhaps?

The Fringe Dress

The ultimate party frock! Bonus points if it has sequins in it. ;)

So what's your favorite from these party silhouettes?

Rosegal Christmas Big Promotion

Time flies by reallly faasssstt!!! Is it gonna be December in two days already?!?! Next thing we know it's the long holidays and then BAM! Summer season! Yes, let's fast forward to the main purpose of this post right? Lol!

This realization needs to be stressed more than ever because admit or not, it's very hard to prepare for a summer body! Lol! And in my case, it'll come a bit early because of an upcoming cruise sometime in January. *panics*

So to prepare for that, I have already made my swimwear wishlist from Rosegal since I learned that they have a wide-range of swimwear styles that will fit every body frame. Consider it, a vision board! If you have this vision, you know exactly how to work on while visualizing you wearing their pieces. Haha! To let you have an idea, I have included here three items that I think stood out from the rest of their collection (but there's about 3000 styles, mind you! )

If ever you're wondering why this swimwear looks familiar, it is because the style was launched by the Jenners. But in an affordable price, yeah? ;)

This might be in my wishlist forever because I think that my body frame can't carry this but I love it anyway.

Because I'm a fan of anything sheer and see-throughs. Lol! This two-piece item is a winner!

You should totes check out their pieces now while they're still having their promotion. :)

Sponsored: Athleisure ala G

Just in case you haven't realized it yet, athleisure is alive and well and is here to stay. It’s now the cool It-girl style. While the debate is still on whether leggings are acceptable to be worn as pants, we look at one master of athleisure who’s fighting the good fight on making them acceptable – Queen G.

But how do we make our exercise gears in leggings totally elevated? It’s been proven that stylish gym wear can be the key to a great workout. Of course we turn to her inspiring ensembles and break down some pointers.

First look: It’s all about the bag. By adding a simple structured purse into your athleisure mix, you bring an extra ounce of polish to your look as demonstrated by G her. I also like the way she wrapped the cardigan around her waist. Obvs, G won the athleisure game here, style slam dunk! ;)

Second look: The bomber. I myself in the past had my second thoughts about the longevity of this trend so whether to invest in a piece or not was a crucial question for me. However, the answer came when Dresslily offered me an opportunity to choose an item from their jacket collection and I just really had to test drive the trend.

Also, you have to admit that it's very hard to resist owning a piece especially when you see how cool it looks when worn by Gigi and Kendall. Like hello, when was the time they look otherwise? *roll eyes* Lol!

Well, if you're not sure about how long this trend will last, the key here is to invest in cheaper pieces like Dresslily's piece below:

At such an affordable price, you can always look cool like Queen G below. ;)

Sponsored: Red Bag and Camel Coat

In this time we live in, the fashion rule about matching your shoes and bag already sounds outdated. As they say, fashion is not about the rules, it's about breaking them. But if  you carefully think about it, there's a reason why it was also invented. Though I like it mix-n-matched, I'm also a big fan of coordinating and the whole color scheme thing. And it just so happened that I have these two red pumps that I need to pair with a bag.

So when Dezzal offered me an opportunity to look at their products, I just had to look at their amazing bag collection. They seriously have a lot of bags that I am in love with! As expected, it was very hard to choose from their 2000+ styles but in the end I settled for something that I need as of the moment. So in the end, I settled for this metal chains lock crossbody bag in red leather.

For someone like me who carries a lot of stuff, it's a wonder how I am so into small mini bags. Haha! But since it is already expected for me to have a bigger bag (gym instructor necessity), I can always have a backup storage as long as the main bag could contain my phone and a few makeup tools for retouching purposes. 

To make the story short, this bag certainly fulfilled my needs in life. Lol! I like how it is made plain with the gold chain and hasp closure. And how I can create a plain two tone look using black and red in the picture below.

Or actually, make it more neutral with the addition of this camel coat from Dezzal's sister company - Dresslily. You may have also seen my feature of their amazing coats in this previous post.

As briefly explained in another post, there's a reason why camel is the signature shade of a chic trench coat (hello Burberry!). It can easily be matched with any color and will never go out of style. All the same, Dresslily's collection of coats also appealed to me more because my old trench coat needs a replacement. Hence, I chose to feature this double-breasted beauty from their selection.

I think the secret of this item is it's neutral hue. That gives it a well-made feel or perhaps the mere association with the aforementioned British brand who pioneered it. For whatever it is, a camel trench coat is your best layering tool to upgrade an outfit. ;)

Thank you Dezzal and Dresslily for partnering in this post. :) And I really mean it that you should check their bag and coats collection. :P
