To Neon or Not to Neon?

14 Jul

That’s the question. Right?

Well I say – Go for it! I will admit it’s a little tricky though. For someone like me. :–)

There’s no denying how bold neon colors are. Too much of it can quickly turn your outfit tackylicious. You don’t want to go too matchy-matchy either. As a general rule, you should incorporate it just enough to give your look that pop but never so much that it overpowers everything else. I’ve noticed it works exceptionally well if you (like ME!) wear a lot of neutrals. And that’s exactly why I need some yummy neon-colored accessories to elevate my largely black/nude/gray wardrobe. ;–) You with me so far?

So here’s my attempt #1. Let’s play a game – Spot the neon! Haha

No seriously, I don’t think I’m ready to do more than this…

I’m wearing a Zara neon-colored tribal-inspired necklace, a black H&M blazer, Zara asymmetrical blouse and jacquard pants and Mark & James sandals. I think it’s safe to say every single piece I’m wearing is my favorite at the moment. It’s all about the details. Would you agree?

Hope you like my instagram’d pictures. Sometimes convenience just wins hands down. ;–)


If I had somewhere really fancy to go to…

That’s what I would wear. Er, albeit with something under that jacket. :–P

Runway Style: Victoria Beckham (I)

25 Mar

I honestly think she has the airport runway confused with the other kind. LOL.

But whatever the case may be, Mrs.Beckham’s travel looks make fashion news. They are really hard to miss, and I’m pretty sure she doesn’t want us to either. ;–)

The Face of Lancôme

Emma Watson looks adorable at her Lancôme commercial shoot.

Now, I’m pretty sure if I saw someone wear that lacy pair of shorts on the street, I’d think they’re either wearing their nightwear or lingerie or a cross between the two! Haha. But this is a professional shoot and Emma makes the outfit look both soft and edgy at the same time. Her awesome pixie haircut helps too. (She totally has the face for it.)

And how cute is that pale pink blazer! Looks familiar, doesn’t it? ;–)

Army Green Jacket

13 Mar

So that’s what’s on my mind right now. Just a year late, that’s all. LOL

The Army jacket was a really hot trend last Fall (2010), showcased by Christophe Decarnin and Marc Jacobs on the runway and further popularized by a host of celebrities, as seen here…

Olivia Palermo and Reese Witherspoon

TrendWatch: Oxfords

21 Feb

Who knew flat shoes could look that stylish (on women)? I certainly had my doubts. And that probably explains why it took me so long to catch on to this trend. One other reason for my slight resistance is the fact that it’s a trend directly borrowed from classic menswear. And like all other menswear-inspired trends, if not done right, it could very easily look a bit off on women. (Yes, I do tend to tread on the cautious side.) ;–)

But then again, when done right, the results can be quite spectacular!

My source of inspiration was this picture from Theory’s 2010 spring collection. I love *everything* about this look – the color palette, the jacket, the pairing with those shorts and most of all, those shoes! This is a perfect spring-summer look. Casual, yet über chic. Love. Here are a few other ways to wear these sweet shoes:
