summer days

Summer is truly here when I need iced coffee for breakfast!

Too hot to eat anything else!

My favorite skort for 2013. 
I know, my legs badly need a tan.

Outfit du jour. 
Whenever I wear this sweater, people always ask me: ARE THESE WHALES?
Yes they are! I love them :)

Catherine Deneuve looking suspiciously like Gwen Stefani.

Bundle up

One of the things I do when I come to Paris is always to head straight to COS in the Marais for some shopping. 
They've been around for a few years now since my flying days and they always have great stuff.
I fell for these shoes and a thick sweater to bundle up in during this erratic spring weather!

Bar extraordinaire

Over the weekend, I had the chance to pop by a beautiful bar in a nondescript office building in Singapore.

It couldnt possibly rival the sky-top bars that are aplenty in the city, but its 12-metre high wine rack and opulent decor took my breath away. A nice quiet place to listen to jazz, have a drink and actually hear yourself talk.

Another easy dress for CNY visiting.. hope you had a good celebration, now it's back to work for most of us..

Valentino Haute Couture 2013

It doesn't matter that I probably can never afford to buy a single piece of haute couture, but it gives such pleasure during a hectic work day to see beautiful images of an haute couture collection. And no one does it better than Valentino.

"Couture has to be magical," so says Pierpaolo Piccioli, one half of the talented duo who after taking over the helm at Valentino, just made me fall in love every season.

french delights

Fresh roses.. white ones are always my favorite..

Tea at Ladurée is a must whenever I'm in Paris... not so much for their macarons as I'm not a big fan, but the rose religieuse which is amazing.

An old mirror.

Little surprise gifts from my friends

Repettos are so comfortable and the service is always excellent.
Love this satin version which was sold out everywhere but thanks to a special angel I managed to find it.

Can never say no to a creamy camembert with fresh bread and Comté cheese.

I love pretty things (and coffee)

Rushing my gift for the office Xmas gift exchange. 
Was too busy to shop so I got the most unoriginal gift ever - an agenda haha.

Everyday accessories.

Coffee with you.

Elie Saab Fall 2012 couture

Elie Saab presented his fall 2012 haute couture collection yesterday & it was a feast for the eyes as usual.

My favorites from the show:

The Lebanese designer always has intricate embellishments on simply cut dresses, making them oh-so-beautiful...

Let's buy a swimsuit

As summer temperatures rise beyond bearable, every girl needs some swimwear in her wardrobe for cooling off at the pool... Here are some i have my eye on or have bought:

Skull piece swimsuit from The Kooples... easily my favorite!

But I took this cos it gives more support & I love the dark marine color... from Monoprix, a french supermarket. I buy most of my basics from there... it's an unusually chic supermarket.

La Perla... we hardly see a nice nude-colored bikini!

Corset bikini set from We Are Handsome... I love the photo prints they always have on their swimwear... Isn't it more chic & flattering to wear silk shorts instead of tight bikini bottoms sometimes?

Adidas by Stella mcCartney asymmetric bikini. I got mine in black & can't wait to wear it cos it looks so pretty & unusual. Though I could not bring myself to buy the frilly bottom which made non-models look like whales. All the sportswear I've owned over the years come from the Stella range, shorts, gloves, tops... they promise Adidas comfort & performance but doesnt ever compromise on design. Cos let's be honest, we feel betta when we're decked out in pretty clothes to do any kind of sport & i can't be friends with anyone who thinks otherwise lol.

Add some good sunscreen & we are ready to hit the pool or beach... though in reality, i've been holing up with air-conditioning & ice-cream, Singapore is soooo hot. xx
