GIVEAWAY :: Target Instagram US$ 300 Gift Card Giveaway

Happy happy Wednesday everyone!!

To add a little cheer midweek, here's another great opportunity I have collaborated with my fashion blogger friends, to bring you this fabulous chance to shop at Target with a US$ 300 gift card giveaway!!


I personally love shopping at Target for a myriad of reasons and Connor, my son is crazy for their selection of toys. It is ideally so that Target in recent years have done well for themselves and repositioned their branding to collaborate with great designer brands and allow everyone to afford that " little piece of luxury" in their homes / closet. If you recall, great brands like Philip Lim, Jason Wu, Tory Burch, Missoni, Prabal Gurung & Altuzarra to name a few....have had great success collaborating with Target and so for this Spring 2015 and coming your way April 19, 2015, I am certainly excited about this collaboration with Lilly Pulitzer.

What better way to get ready for the sun, sea and sand with these gorgeous printed, sunny and vibrant hued items ranging from apparels, accessories to beauty and home decor. A total of about 250 items are included in this collaboration and the good news is that 200 of those items are well under US$ 30. The price range of these items are at an affordable US$2 - US$ 150 - how good is that?

Another plus point of this collaboration - PLUS SIZES! Available ONLY ONLINE !So ladies, if you need those sizes do not fret! Just get yourself ready with that finger on the button and you can grab those pieces as soon as they go online. Perfect isn't it??

To wet your tastebuds, here are some pics off their lookbook to give you a tasting of what's to come.

Take A Bow :: Classic White Shirt and Pencil Skirt

A good Friday again to all of you.

It's been a good Easter break and managed to get lots of stuff sorted out - throwing out and giving away old clothes and items I rarely use in the closet. Packing away all winter stuff as the weather starts to warm up here in Hong Kong and more so, clearing junk I have put aside thinking I will need or use them someday but obviously that doesn't happen. So clearing these items helps me clear my mind at the same time.

Do you ever feel that way too? Somehow when your life is cluttered with things, your head seems cluttered as well. Once that is reorganised, so is your life ( ...in general that is).

Put together this look as part of my "Pairings" video recently released, and realised that often many of my readers would love to have more closer viewings of these look, since usually in a video, it is so time restrictive and sometimes not in HD as I would like it to be. Therefore am also blogging on these same looks for you to have a better feel of the items.




This is a great look for work, where conservative as it may seem with the hemline and button up collar, but funky with the bold accessories of the large bow-tie and the jumbo bag. Continuing that gold and black metallic touch with a statement belt, this ties in the look together with or without a blazer thrown over.





Keeping the accessories simple and few, to allow them to individually stand out and " make" this outfit.




Stay tuned for the next post of trending a fringe skirt for Summer. Till then, take care!!

Blazer : River Island ( similar here & here) // Top : ZARA // Skirt : H&M
Bow : ASOS ( get it here or similar here) // Belt : GUESS ( similar here)
Watch : Michael Kors // Bag : Chanel
Heels : ZARA ( similar here)

Love,
Simone xoxo

VIDEO :: Classic White Shirt Pairings

Good Friday Everyone.

Whilst I believe many of you are perhaps on a long weekend break at some resort or holiday destination, I on the other hand am enjoying the extra time away from school runs and work to put together another one of my " pairings" video for this Easter Weekend break.

An item that I believe everyone of you would likely have stashed away in your closet coupled with the whole idea of recycling your wardrobe and working with new inspirations in terms of styling, I decided to work with the Classic Basic White Shirt for this video.

I hope you enjoy the pairing ideas and do share with me in the comments below which is your favourite? And why?

Knock Your Socks Off :: Socks in Shoes & Floral Skirt

Hi Everyone.

It's just been a very sad couple of days since the start of the week with the passing of the founding father of Singapore ( where I come from) - Mr Lee Kuan Yew. You will probably have read/heard it in the news and have watched many documentaries of late of all he has done for Singapore which has made me proud to be a Singaporean.

It seems difficult for me in this time of nation mourning to put together a fashion post. Certainly not a political activist, this post is not meant to be one of propaganda either - just one of mention to give credit where credit is due.

Life goes on for Singapore and Singaporeans and all I can say is that I am grateful for all that Mr Lee Kuan Yew has done and made Singapore to be. Rest in Peace Mr Lee Kuan Yew!

***********************************************************************************

A look I had put together with the intention of trending socks in shoes further for Spring 2015, I figured let's have some fun with this outfit. It may or may not click for some of you but fashion is always about expression and about having fun.



Peep toe  / gladiator shoes seem ideal for working this trend as you can play around with patterned socks for that full on effect.



This wasn't too easy a shoot to take working with heels on the uneven grounds of the forest and critters creeping out from the trees. Was worried that a snake or a wild boar may appear right behind me!!







For those of you still unsure of working this trend for Spring 2015, here are some inspirations for you.







There are no specific rule of thumb here when it comes to mix and matching your socks and shoes but from the inspirations above, you can gather a few " basics" such as :

1) Work it within the same colour tone of your outfit/shoes
2) Preferably keep the socks in a bold solid colour for a more sophisticated look.
3) Work with ankle length socks ( prettier if its got a nice designed garter or detail) however knee high socks are great if there are more details on the socks.

Go have fun and keep those spring toes warm with this trend!
