Carmen and Natasha were recently invited to the launch event of StyleTribute.com, an online platform specializing on pre-loved luxury items. We think it’s an excellent idea to recycle your fashion items, considering fashion changes all the time and you probably get bored of half of the stuff you have in your wardrobe anyway. Besides, selling your stuff means you now have the space allowance in your closet and the money to buy some more stuff! :)
The theme of the event is Fashion Meets Art, and the clothes and accessories are color coordinated with the paintings on the wall. Mind you, we were expecting a different take on the meaning of Fashion Meets Art, but hey we had a lot of fun anyway!
Here we are posing with Style Tribute’s Stephanie Crespin, who looked gorgeous in her teal dress and gold choker necklace.
We love the two beaded vintage bags below. It has a 1920s feel to it, and they make a great bag for cocktail parties because it can actually fit more than just your phone, a few cards and a compact powder!
Carmen and Natasha love this black and white paisley dress below, and how cute is the pair of Marni monochrome pumps perched nicely on the pipe! This dress has tiny beads that glittered under the light and it has a backless cut. It’s so demure and elegant and definitely got our vote!
Natasha had a minor, potentially leaning more towards major, crush on this Balmain leather blazer and its structured shoulders. If only Singapore was ten degrees cooler… Sigh..
We’re loving one of this year’s spring trends, florals, so we decided to dress up in something girly and feminine.
We both love this painting below! We’re no art experts, but there’s something about the softness that this painting exudes that made us stop in our tracks and admire it for a bit – no small feat considering we usually get easily distracted!
We love this picture of Stephanie and one of her guests who looked very Parisian chic in her strappy high heels and a very very nice handbag! There’s something about monochrome that is simply elegant and understated. And there’s definitely something about a black Birkin that dresses up even the dullest outfits.
So after snapping a few pics, we thought it’s time to pick out a few of our favorite fashion items from the rack. The first one is the red shirt dress below from Diane von Furstenberg. How gorgeous is the dress! Dress it down with a clutch and strappy sandals, or dress it up with a statement necklace and tote bag, plus killer stilettos or peep toe shoes!
Our next pick was this beautiful and sexy red dress from L’wren Scott (may she rest in peace!). One thing for sure, this dress didn’t stay on the rack for very long as we saw someone snatched it a few minutes after this picture was taken.
The next dress was from Warehouse. We love the bright colors and simplicity of the cut, which you can easily jazz up with a statement necklace and stacked bracelets.
The black and white Stella McCartney dress below got our vote. It has an unusual cut but we can totally picture this dress at a cocktail party with a pair of fuchsia or orange pumps to complete the look.
The top from Etro below is one of our favorites. We think it would look awesome with white denim and a pair of tan espadrilles or wedges.
StyleTribute.com definitely has our support! Although the items are pre-loved, they’re still in an extremely good condition and you’re paying a third of what the items were sold for so why not? And if you get bored with it, which we often do, then just sell it again! :)
