Work a wool bodycon skirt

Image
When 1 of my favourite US retailers has items that go on sale, this chick takes notice.  A lightweight knit bodycon skirt is incredibly versatile, so I knew that it would be mine.  I paired the Tobi skirt with a D-ring black knit top from Soeurs.

Alas, the skirt got snagged on a sharp edge and tore a hole in the skirt after just 1 wear : (  But it was stylish while it lasted.


Yellow yellow dirty fellow

I went crazy bonkers mad bananas over this asymetrical hem skirt and ordered it in fuschia.  The light neoprene was so comfortable and didn't cut into my waist after a full lunch, so I pretty much went ahead and bought the same design in electric blue, white and yellow.

Visible stitching on the skirt added subtle pattern, so I could pair my yellow fella with a plain black crop knit for a burst of sunshine.



Marble and white denim

It's only now, after starting the blog, that I realise how many marble print clothes I own!  Whilst I love them so darned much, perhaps I should think of adding other patterns to update my wardrobe for 2018.  For the right mix of girly, sassy and flirty, MDS is 1 of my must-visit shops.

Decent quality fabrics, good stitching and the cutest designs keep this customer loyal.  Here, I paired their super comfy gathered off-shoulder marble print babe with white stretch denim shorts and slippers for getaway style.  Loving the shiny sterling silver chain which I looped around twice to wear as an anklet.


Work a sexy cut-out skirt

I had this gorgeous light purple cut-out hottie lying in my closet for like forever.  Because it isn't appropriate for work and mummy will disown me if I ever wear something like this in front of her, I couldn't find the right occasion to wear it.

Then hubster wanted to take me along for a gathering at his colleague's home.  It was the first time I would meet her family, especially her parents and husband.  So I paired the skirt with a Fly Me To Paris black little mesh cropped top, accessorised with silver dangling earrings and I was ready for a fun night.

So it was time to say goodbye and disembark from the ship *sob*  I'd bought this striped Mango tee from Zalora for an unbelievable $9.90 (it's still available, go go go!) and paired it with the jeans.

Stripes are a neutral on their own and can be worn with so many other bottoms.  I'll probably match this with cute skirts on some other days.

It's starting to look like an olive jacket and jeans ensemble theme and I apologise for that, but it was chilly!  I'd originally thought of wearing the navy crop top on its own with a mesh choker.

Sans jacket, the outfit works with a mesh top over the crop and pointed toe black heels.  But I'm a light packer so I don't care :P

So hubs booked us onto the Leisure World for a 3D2N cruise to bloody nowhere.  I'm not a gambler, but just having a change of environment was extremely appealing.  I'd excitedly planned my wardrobe to work around a new yellow skirt, but when the departure date rolled around, it bloody rained.

So I decided to wear jeans instead and changed all the matching tops and accessories immediately! :P  Since the weather was chilly, I could debut a new addition to my wardrobe - an olive velvet jacket I'd bought from Pomelo a couple of weeks back.

I paired the jeans and jacket with a simple white tank top that had a butterfly strap motif at the back, and used a striped sash as a belt.  For accessories, I chose a silver toggle necklace an ex colleague bought me from H&M Hong Kong, white gold hoop earrings, Givenchy lizard print bracelet and silver stretch bracelet.

A huge Cavalli tote matched with orange heels completed the look.
