Carmen managed to grab a photo of British model Jourdan Dunn (the first black model to run the Prada catwalk in over a decade!) and is the face of Maybelline. She is wearing a Moschino quilted denim bomber jacket along with the matching skirt. d Here is Jourdan leaving the Toni & Guy blow dry bar at Somerset house! We are loving the hair. i j l 234 432

Singapore’s fashion scene just got better with the opening of Roberto Cavalli Boutique in Marina Bay Sands!

We were super excited when we heard the news that the Italian designer Roberto Cavalli is opening a boutique in Singapore’s The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands! We were even more excited when we got an invitation to attend the boutique opening and a preview of Cavalli’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection. Again, Natasha had to fly solo because Carmen is attending London Fashion Week tomorrow. Yay!!

IMG_1152.PNG

Cavalli’s designes have always been on the va-va-voom and flamboyant side, which is why Sofia Vergara wears a lot of his designs, because she herself is va-va-voom! This season, we REALLY like what we saw. Very Great Gatsby, 1920s silhouette, a lot of beading and lace, satin and silk, a bit of mink in all the right places, with a dash of Cavalli’s signature glamorous and sexy touch. Amazing play of textures and patterns, and every clothes Natasha saw on the runway were so breathtakingly beautiful.

So, enough writing and time to share the pics that Natasha took at the event. She made sure to stand strategically, so she could also take pictures of the (very friendly and pretty) models backstage. Natasha loved the flame constantly ‘burning’ on all four panels of the plasma TV, which played very well with some of the dresses with the flame-like pattern.

Now do you believe us when we say they’re all breathtaking??!!

Natasha managed to snap a picture between the models after the show. Thank God she wore her 12 cm Jimmy Choos, because the models were so damn tall! Even then she felt like a shorty among them :)

IMG_1153-0.PNGHere’s a picture of the female models – don’t you just love the handsome photo bomber in the background?

After the show was over, Natasha had a wander around the brandspanking new boutique and snapped a few photos of some of the gorgeous things she saw.

We’re definitely enchanted by Alice + Olivia’s “Enchanted: A Midwinter Night’s Dream”

IMG_0278.JPG As some of you may still remember, we did an extensive spotlight on Alice + Olivia a few months ago, where we basically had the time of our lives playing dress-up in their ION Orchard boutique. Needless to say, we adore A+O, so you can imagine how excited we were when we got an invitation to take a peak at A+O’s Fall 2014 collection from Juliana, A+O’s MarComm lady. Thank you Juliana!! The theme for this year’s Fall collection is “Enchanted: A Midwinter Night’s Dream”, and boy oh boy how super enchanted we were indeed. The kind of ‘enchanted’ that may very well send us broke, because there are so many enchanting items. Sigh, it’s so hard being a girl. IMG_0274.JPG Again, Carmen had to miss out on all the fun because she’s currently somewhere in Denmark, enjoying some ‘hygge’ time (if you don’t know what ‘hygge’ means, look it up!). Natasha had to do the hard work, snapping pictures, getting lost in the world of A+O. So let’s take you through A+O’s delicious collection, shall we? IMG_0553-0.PNG IMG_0535.PNG Natasha is IN LOVE with this clutch. How absolutely cute is this clutch! It’s fun and flirty without looking too childish and gimmicky. A girl can never have a diamond too darn big, that’s what we like to think. :) It’s a sizable size, too, so you can put more than just your lipgloss and iPhone! That’s the thing about Stacy, she’s a woman and a mother, and she knows a woman needs more space to put her things in a clutch! IMG_0533.PNG This butterfly print is a signature in the Enchanted collection, which uses a lot of brocade, embellishment and lace. Three of Natasha’s favorite things! The clothes just look so luxurious and glamorous, with a touch of sophistication and mystery thrown in the mix.  IMG_0661.PNG As you can see, the butterfly design is carried throughout the collection, including this absolutely gorgeous asymmetrical skirt below and the shoes further down in the picture. LOVE!!!!!!!! IMG_0537.PNG IMG_0536.PNG Now on to shoes, Natasha really likes these cute number with pom poms on it. She typically doesn’t like things that are too cutesy, but this time these cuties below really caught her attention! Perfect with jeans a nice silky top. Stick to more simple silhouettes and color, preferably nothing too busy, so you don’t distract the attention away from the shoes. IMG_0539.PNG These flats come in high heels as well and they’re just too cute for words. LBD would look amaze balls with the shoes, and throw on a big chunky pearl necklace and one of those Jackie O sunnies and off you go!IMG_0540The cardigans, oh the cardigans!! Who says cardigans have to be boring? Stacey certainly thinks they need not be AND she makes unicorns look trendy and not childish. That’s the thing with A+O, the designs are fun and whimsical, it brings out the fun in all us, yet in a tasteful way. Natasha was never that big on unicorns growing up, but she is now, thanks to Stacey! IMG_0542.PNG Look, it’s Stacey’s signature glasses on a otherwise boring grey cardi! This would go perfectly with a pair of skinny dark denim or wear it to work by switching the jeans to black capri pants. instead of wearing the cardi, throw it on your shoulder for that effortless look. IMG_0544.PNG This is probably Natasha’s favorite cardi – it’s a toss-up between this and that godforsaken gorge unicorn cardi. What’s so good about it? Well, you can detach the Peter Pan collar and it becomes a more simple and classic jumper. How versatile is that? This jumper is perfect for traveling. It’s simple and versatile without being boring. IMG_0543.PNG Here’s a snap shot of the uber pretty and friendly model, Marija Shatilo. Of course if you have legs as long as Marija, these boots would look amazing with a super short A-line skirt such as the one she’s wearing. IMG_0541.PNG  As we mentioned before, A+O’s Enchanted collection plays with a lot of texture in the fabric add the richness and depth of color can be seen throughout the collection. Here are a few pictures to give you an idea. IMG_0545.PNG IMG_0549-0.PNG   Look at the intricate embellishment on this dress! It’s breath taking (and heavy) and just simply one-of-a-kind. IMG_0548-0.PNG IMG_0547-0.PNG   This is definitely one of Natasha’s favorite dresses. The contrast stitching and design creates such an impact! IMG_0546-0.PNG IMG_0550-0.PNG  If full beading ain’t your thing then you might want to stick to something more simple and demure such as this beauty in the picture below. With subtle beads around the neckline, this dress is so pretty and feminine. IMG_0551-0.PNG   IMG_0552-0.PNG   Before Natasha made her way out of the store, her sweet tooth instinct told her to turn her gaze to one particular spot in the store and voila! It’s Stacey’s face on cake pops! How cute are they :) IMG_0557.PNG   Here’s Natasha with the gorgeous bouquet of flowers from The beauty candy Apothecary, a cute little shop at Cluny Court owned by a super stylish Indonesian mama called Astri (they also supplied some yummy Fresh Pressed juice at the event). Flowers always bring a smile to any girl’s face. IMG_0377.PNG IMG_0531.PNG   IMG_0350.JPG

Hansel Fairy Lights Collection is a good remnder that the holiday season is near!

IMG_0081.PNGCarmen and Natasha are big supporters of local talent in this island we call home. For now. (the ‘for now’ part is very important, because being expats we never know where we’ll end up by the time we finish writing this blog.)

We’re particularly big fans of Jo Soh’s work, the creative genius behind the successful local brand Hansel (which, by the way, is the name of her dog). We were super excited when she personally invited us to a preview of her Fairy Lights collection at her boutique on the second floor of Mandarin Gallery.

IMG_0011.JPGJo’s inspiration came from these pretty fairy lights, which typically symbolizes festivity and happy occasion.

IMG_0092.PNGCheck out 3 of her fairy lights design, which she turned into different designs; coil, string and fairy light.

IMG_0086.PNGHere’s Natasha with Jo Soh, unfortunately Carmen is still in Europe so she missed out on this awesome opportunity to meet one of her favorite Asian designers.

IMG_0015.PNG

IMG_0094.PNGBeing a former Textile Design student herself, Natasha appreciates the technique of transferring a design onto the chosen fabric. Jo uses bamboo quill and Indian ink as her medium, because she loves the organic imperfection it achieves through the squiggles that are all of different width. She then does repeats to make a pattern of her scribbles, which is digitally printed onto fabric, which for this collection, Jo has chosen cotton rayon and polyester.

The cool thing about these fabrics is that they’re durable and low maintenance, all you have to do is throw it in the washing machine and it even requires minimal ironing! Perfect for traveling – which is why Carmen decided to pack her beloved HDB print dress from Jo’s previous collection on her trip around Scandinavia.

IMG_0095.PNGBeing a huge fan of bright colors, this design is definitely Natasha’s favorite! Especially the maxidress below. It’s so pretty!

IMG_0087.PNG

IMG_0082.PNGThis is Natasha’s second favorite design. It’s simple, but far from boring!

IMG_0083.PNGLook at how intricately and perfectly stitched the black threads are and also the ‘lightbulb’. It’s the small details that make a great design!

IMG_0091.PNGThe monochrome design is super versatile, because you can dress it up or down and definitely wearable to the office.

IMG_0085.PNGHow gorgeous is this bow accent on the puffy skirt. Pair this skirt with a bright colored shirt and wear it to work or throw on a T-shirt and a pair of cute ballerina flats to complete the look, perfect for a weekend stroll!

Sassy Singapore and Kate Spade unveiled Fall Season’s Tokyo and Shanghai Collection!

IMG_9546.JPG

When we found out that Sassy Singapore is teaming up with Kate Spade to unveil the brand new Fall collection, we were beyond excited. When we found out the new Fall collection is Asia-inspired, we were excited beyond belief, especially when Kate Spade picked out two of Asia’s coolest cities to be her inspiration, Tokyo and Shanghai! Such a nice shift from last season’s Italy-inspired summer collection.

As many of our darling readers may already know, Carmen and Natasha have been teaming up with our friends at Sassy Singapore to review a bunch of things around Singapore and being humongous fans of Kate Spade, there’s nothing better than going to an event that combines both!

Here’s Natasha with the sassy girls from the Sassy team. Unfortunately Carmen isn’t in the picture, because she’s currently having the time of her life traveling through Scandinavia for a month, so Natasha has to hold the fort.IMG_9740.PNG

Poppy Skinner, Sassy Singapore’s Editor, gave useful fashion tips on how to mix and match this season’s pieces. How cute is her statement neck candy?! Natasha’s loving her loafers, too. Whoever says that black outfits are boring need to go on a little accessories treasure hunt!

IMG_9764.PNG

We’re swooning over the cobalt blue leopard print from the Tokyo collection. Natasha has her eyes on the Keds and cute cat bag and the bamboo green sling bag. Okay she has her eyes on many many things and can you blame her?

IMG_9728.PNG

How gorge is this clutch below?! Such a standout piece and perfect to jazz up a black LBD.

IMG_9556.JPG

IMG_9735.PNG

IMG_9759.JPGUnlike the Tokyo collection, which is more on the fun and flirty side, the Shanghai collection has more of a luxurious, sexy, yet festive feel to it with its deep cherry red and black and white color pallette.

Natasha was busy trying to gain her momentarily lost composure the moment she laid her eyes on the gorgeous Chinese takeaway box bag. How. Amazing. Is. It. sigh…..

IMG_9760.JPG

Okay so it’s not just the Chinese takeaway box that’s super cute, the bird cage bag is equally gorgeous! Why do you have to have such cute stuff Kate Spade? Why!!!

IMG_9761.JPG

As if the drool-worthy bags weren’t torturous enough, check out these amaze balls shoes below! There’s something sentimental and timeless about Mary Janes, especially these burgundy ones below. The black ribbon really completes the look!

IMG_9763.JPG

Natasha is a massive fan of the color coral, so she’s super duper happy to see so many coral-colored items in store.

IMG_9738.PNG

Natasha found a whole bunch of goodies from Benefits makeup, as well as a nifty voucher from Prep blow dry bar in the goody bag and she loved this cute (not to mention yummy!) little fortune cookie – how cute is the Kate Spade takeaway container by the way?!

Nine West’s mega sale! Go to the nearest Nine West shop now!

One fine evening, after dinner with girlfriends at Wisma Atria, one of Natasha’s girlfriends broke the news that Nine West is having a super awesome sale. Music to any girl’s ears, right? So off she went to check it out, a tad bit skeptical of the sale, thinking that most of the good stuff have probably been sold out. Much to her surprise, the sale is indeed super duper awesome!

That is why we decided to post this blog today so you can make your way to Nine West this weekend, or even tonight after work! Yay! Here’s the deal, most of the stuff are on 50% off! Yes, 50%!!! As if that’s not great enough, Nine West is throwing an extra 10% if you buy 2 pairs, and an extra 15% if you buy 3 pairs. What you can do is gather 2 or 3 of your girlfriends and enjoy extra discount! Woohoo!

IMG_9784.PNGHere are Natasha’s top picks:

How hot are the shoes below! They’re surprisingly comfortable, too. Perfect for a night out with your girlfriends. Great with jeans or skirt.

IMG_9786.PNGNatasha is loving these two-toned Enzos. The color combos are all so yummy, you can dress them up or down.The blue and grey are her favorites!

IMG_9783.PNG

 

IMG_9785.PNG

IMG_9788.PNGThe wedges below with elastic strap is perfect with flowy summer dresses. Natasha loves the pink one!IMG_9790.PNG

 

IMG_9787.PNGHow cute are these kitten heels! So elegant and demure, perfect to finish off your office attire. The height makes these little darlings comfortable to run around in.IMG_9791.PNG

IMG_9789.PNG

 

IMG_9793.PNG

IMG_9792.PNG

IMG_9794.PNG

 

IMG_9795.PNGAfter 50% discount, these cute colorful flip-flops end up being SGD25!! And they’re perfect to wear around the pool.

IMG_9796.PNG

IMG_9797.PNGA few months ago, we posted a blog on pretty summer sandals at Nine West, but because the sandals are part of Nine West’s Runway Collection, the prices were a bit on the steep side (SGD182 for a pair of these gorge sandals below). Natasha couldn’t believe her luck w\hen the salesperson said that the store still has her size. The best part? She got it for SGD83!!!IMG_9808.JPG

IMG_9813.JPGNatasha went to the Wisma Atria branch, but fret not because Nine West has another big store at Raffles City mall. What are you waiting for? Head to the nearest Nine West store now! You won’t be sorry :)

Carmenandnatasha’s favorites at the Emmys this year!

Many many women around the world glue their eyes on what celebrities wear on a daily basis, especially during awards season and the Emmys naturally have that affect on us.

Carmen and Natasha are LOVING Claire Danes’ choice this year. She looked so elegant and polished in her Givenchy dress. Agent Brody, eat your heart out – yes, we’re big Homeland fans.

IMG_9429.PNG

How gorgeous did Lizzy Caplan look in this beautiful Donna Karan Atelier dress! Lizzy who? Well, she’s definitely one to watch out for. This Masters of Sex actress sure has a kickass stylist or an impeccable taste judging by her dress selection!

IMG_9430.PNG

Kerry Washington is another celebrity robot we reckon. She looked ah-mazeballs in this orange Prada number, only a few months after giving birth to a cute baby girl just two months ago.

IMG_9432.PNG

If we had legs like julia Roberts, and a great big signature smile we’d be grinning ear to ear, too! Who says you have to wear a long gown to look great at the Emmys? Julia Roberts looked refreshingly different in this Elie Saab Haute Couture sparkly dress.

IMG_9431.PNG

Sofia Vergara looks hot in everything, even a potato sack. Okay, maybe not but still.. This Roberto Cavalli white number looked sizzling hot on her. This woman looks awesome in any color, yes, we love to hate you Sofia.

IMG_9436.PNG

Michelle Dockery, we want your Rosie Assoulin tricolor dress!! What’s not to love about this breathtaking dress. The color combo, the cut, the silhouette, love, love, love.  Oh and we love the minimal makeup, too. :)

IMG_9435.PNG

Okay, seriously, we’re convinced Heidi Klum is a robot. There’s no way she’s human and looked this stunning in her Zac Posen after giving birth to four genetically blessed children.

IMG_9434.PNG

We’re seeing a lot of coral on the red carpet at the Emmys this year, as you can see from Sara Hyland’s Christian Siriano ensemble. We love how she kept the look fresh, simple, found and sophisticated.

IMG_9437-0.PNG

Keke Palmer looked breathtaking in a Rubin Singer midnight blue dress! Not a bad choice for a 20 year-old. We certainly had a few too many fashion mishaps at age 20!

IMG_9438-0.PNG

Kate Mara looked so very angelic in her J. Mendel dress below, a far cry from her Zoe Barnes tomboy style (yes, we watch House of Cards religiously and if you don’t, you should!).

IMG_9439.PNG

 

 

Laprendo Sale is back and we loved it!

Carmen and Natasha are fans of Laprendo, Singapore’s premium brand shop with a store that is nicely tucked in a corner of Dempsey’s maze of shops and restaurants and another shop, specifically selling jewelry, at the Fullerton Hotel.

Every year, we’re always anticipating for Laprendo’s annual sale and we were beyond excited when we found out its annual sale is held this weekend. What we like about the Laprendo sale is the variety, quality and value of the goods. We’re not misled by their sale, because a lot of the items are actually at 80% off, especially their ‘last pieces’ rack. Granted some of their stuff are a few seasons old, but for fans of classic and timeless pieces like us, we don’t really care.

In terms of brands, they have practically everything you can think of. Let’s start with the usual suspects, Gucci, Prada, YSL, Miu Miu, D&G, Victoria Beckham, Marni, last year Natasha even managed to snatch a gorgeous pair of Chanel ballerinas, Valentino, Christian Dior, you get the point. They also have clothes for sale, as well as accessories such as glasses, belts, ipad and iPhone cases (we spotted a few gorgeous ones from Balenciaga). The clothes were absolutely gorge. Natasha spotted a super pretty Celine and Red Valentino dress, but decided to take home a classic Marlene Birger shirt for a mere SGD80!!!!!!!! Please excuse our excessive enthusiasm. We can’t help ourselves.

Anyway, enough typing and time to post a snapshot of the awesome sale and some of the items we managed to snatch before all the good stuff are gone!

Pact @ Orchard Central: We are officially obsessed!

We’ve done it again – found the new kid in town, and now visit there almost 3 times a week… Pact is a concept store that features three parts: an awesome restaurant (Kilo); shop (K.I.N) and get your haircut (+LIM)! How convenient to have all three (and all done to an incredibly high standard) – all in one place! We think this new area rocks, the service is friendly, efficient and well informed; the food (try the bowls during brunch/lunch) is well priced and delicious; the shopping showcases brands and products that are not found anywhere else in Singapore (and includes lightweight bamboo clothing for women and men – perfect for the humidity here).

Here are some photos of the store below…

There is also a “hidden” mani/pedi salon next to the Code Deco store -check it out! Note they only do gelish.IMG_7971.JPG

Out and about on Keong Saik

20140717-074530-27930150.jpgOne fine (and also very hot!) day, we decided to stroll along one of Singapore’s current hottest spots, Keong Saik Road, which is lined up with the city’s coolest bars and restaurants nestled in Chinatown’s beautifully conserved and colorful shophouses.

Carmen was wearing  a gorgeous baby blue dress by ZARA, with cute knot detailing on the sleeve. The dress is so light and breezy, perfect for Singapore’s increasingly hot temperature. Seriously, the humidity has been so high and our trusted indicator for humidity is …. our hair! And no, that’s NOT a good thing. Carmen wore her super duper comfy Tod’s (trust us, these Tod’s have been tried and tested, and surprisingly durable) and black Kate Spade tote bag.

20140717-074530-27930639.jpgCarmen decided to go for a simple, yet stylish and classic accessories. Check out her beautiful cream-colored earrings and necklace, which go together with just about every outfit. Oh, the necklace can easily be converted into a bracelet, too. We love versatile jewelry!

20140717-074534-27934099.jpgNatasha, on the other hand, opted for a much brighter ensemble as you can see from the picture below! :)

The Chanel bag below is one of her favorite bags, she loves its colors and fabric. The silk dress is from Kookai – unfortunately they don’t have a shop here in Singapore, she bought it on a trip to Melbourne last year. The Valentino rock stud bracelets match her dress perfectly. Yay! Oh, the strappy sandals are Oroton, an Aussie brand.

20140717-074531-27931649.jpgAfter walking around for about 10 seconds – okay make it 5 minutes – we decided that the heat was just too unbearable so we decided to cool down by going to Potatohead Folk, one of the newcomers on Keong Saik. We actually did a review on it for the newly launched Sassy Singapore, an awesome website for everything a girl needs to know about  Singapore and more.20140717-074531-27931126.jpgWe love the interior of this place! It’s very different to all the Potatoheads we’ve been to in Jakarta and Bali.20140717-074533-27933606.jpgWe found super cute spot by the window, which looked out onto the street. Perfect spot to enjoy our midday (alcoholic) drinks.. *clear throat*.. !

What Women Want really knows what women want

One hot and humid afternoon, Carmen and Natasha decided to cool down in Mandarin Gallery (note: ‘cool down’ is one of many Carmen and Natasha’s excuses to window shop, which often translates into a oh-oops-I-did-it-again-how-did-that-dress-end-up-in-the-paperbag-that-I’m-holding moment). Casually sauntering the corridors of Mandarin Gallery, we stumbled upon a shop, which is aptly called What Women Want. After a quick ‘awww, that’s such a cute name for a shop babe!’ remark, we went in to check it out. And boy, were we shocked by how many cute pieces there are in this gorgeous shop! Special thanks to the shop owner, Anna, a beautiful Brazilian woman (but then again, we haven’t really met a Brazilian woman who is NOT beautiful) and Penny, a lovely Melburnian who was very patient while we were mucking around trying clothes on!

20140707-125733-46653206.jpg

What Women Want stocks many many many delightful things that we, and most women, want. Think gorgeous statement necklaces, funky looking shoes, amazeballs dresses and clothes in general, cute sunglasses and lots and lots of beautiful jewelry. Pricewise, very affordable! Some pieces are a bit on the steep side, but we reckon they’re totally worth the price because of its unique design and high quality. The shop stocks items from around the world, from Beirut, Australia to Thailand!

20140707-125734-46654103.jpg

20140707-125736-46656864.jpgNow do you believe us when we say the shop stocks a lot gorgeous jewelry?20140701-191505-69305294.jpgOne of our favorite corners in the shop – the clearance table! :)

Unlike some shops, the clearance table in What Women Want actually has many cute things on it. Natasha loves the white chain necklace with lots of zipper charms on it and the necklace made up of matchsticks. And the shoes! THE SHOES! They’re SGD70 and some of them are very Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City.

20140707-125734-46654994.jpg

20140701-191502-69302333.jpg

20140701-191502-69302536.jpg

Natasha’s first outfit pick is a sequined short skirt, which also comes in yellow, with a see-through white sweater which is just to die for, plus a statement necklace that screams rock and roll without being too overpowering.

IMG_3470

Here’s a close-up of the necklace! We LOVE it!

IMG_3472

The shoes were surprisingly comfy, and Natasha managed not to trip over nothing and fall – it has happened several times. In public. In front of many people. *sheepish look*  befunky_artwork.jpg

We spotted this gorgeous little beauty tucked quietly in the corner of one of the shelves and decided that it would complete this look perfectly! What’s not to love about it? Its unusual and pretty at the same time.

20140701-191504-69304806.jpg

 

IMG_3482

The next outfit selection is Natasha’s favorite! The high waist full skirt is absolutely gorgeous and goes perfectly well with the cropped sequin top. We think a nicely tailored black shirt would go really well for this outfit too!

IMG_3501We’re totally enamored by this yummy clutch by a Thai designer. It’s quite steep at SGD500, but we must say the quality is absolutely amazing. Natasha chose a wristcandy to go with the outfit to spice it up a little.IMG_3503

The wedges, oh the wedges! They’re super comfy, although we wouldn’t recommend you to run in them to catch a bus, taxi, MRT, or any moving and living object for that matter (that’s right, don’t wear these babies while walking your dog). IMG_3504

How beautiful is the necklace below! Natasha’s not a big fan of yellow gold, but somehow this combo works. And come on, who doesn’t like tassels on a necklace? We sure do!

20140701-191505-69305764.jpg

This necklace and the dress below goes perfectly together like peanut butter and jelly, fish and chips, salted caramel and popcorn, Carmen and Natasha. Awww… :)

IMG_3510

And check out this ring below! How amazeballs is it?! It comes in silver and black as well, but we really dig the rose gold (we have a picture of it somewhere below)IMG_3512

The dress below is 50% off, which brings it down to SGD200. The detailing is exquisite and amazing and it comes in black as well. We’re totally in love with the clutch. Simplicity at its absolute best, we reckon.

You don’t want to go cray cray with the accessories, for obvious reasons. We think a clutch, a simple ring and a pair of drop down earrings polish off the look really well. IMG_3521Here’s a close-up picture of the ring we previously mentioned – Natasha’s a fan of the drop down earrings!

20140701-191502-69302727.jpg

Below is a selection of the accessories and clothes Carmen had picked out. How out-of-this-world is her bling bling dress? It has a 1920’s the Great Gatsby feel combined with 80’s glamor – think Studio 54! Check out the stack rings, how awesome does it look? And don’t get us started on the disco ball clutch on the right, with a hint of Alexander McQueen. Love!

20140701-191502-69302918.jpg

Et voila! Front view of Carmen’s kickass dress and take a closer look at the earrings, they’re by a Beirut-based designer. We love to add an element of surprise to our outfit, which is exactly what Carmen did with the leopard print shoes. Being safe is so passé, so we tend to inject our personality and authenticity into our style.

20140701-191504-69304327.jpg

How divine is the whole outfit ensemble below? The shoes – very SJP – goes so well with the pretty skirt and we love the studs earrings which are so simple yet versatile. We’re head over heels with the heels. So much so that we’re kinda regretting not buying it (while casually checking our phone agenda to see if we can quickly make a quick detour to the shop tomorrow. Ahem.. )

20140701-191503-69303371.jpg

We totally love this picture below, although we got a few stares while trying to get the best shot. The dress didn’t really stand out on the rack, but Carmen decided to give it a chance and it looked amazing on! It’s very feminine and princess-like without looking too much like Belle in Beauty and the Beast.

20140702-231539-83739465.jpg

We chose this necklace to jazz the dress up a little. Carmen loves it because it’s dainty with a bit of edge, the triangle really makes this necklace pop.

20140702-231716-83836011.jpgWe must admit we’re not huge fans of jumpsuits, they can either go wrong or very wrong. The legs are often too long, too short, the torso part is too out of proportion, you get the idea. This one, however, was surprisingly the perfect fit. We like the neon yellow stripes down the legs against the cream base color. And how cute is the huge bow on the collar?! Carmen picked a pair of green Valentino rockstud-like shoes to break the colors up a bit.

20140707-125736-46656037.jpg

Next time you’re wandering around Mandarin Gallery after a coffee session with your girlfriends or a nice brunch on a weekend, or simply to ‘cool down’ like Carmen and Natasha, be sure to pop by this cute little shop and be prepared to walk out with a little something (or a big something).

Inverted Edge/ The Wyld Shop fashion event last weekend

Carmen popped into this event last Saturday – and was pleasantly surprised by how super friendly everyone was!

The event was held at the Song Lin building – walking distance from Arab street. Carmen is such a huge fan of this area!

BeFunky_IMG_3415.jpg

Gorgeous clothes and accessories were spotted at this event – check it out below:

Loved this leopard print maxi below – how stunning!! 
BeFunky_null_3.jpg

 

Carmen tried on the pink maxi on the left and it’s an amazing colour – so gorgeous and very light fabric, so great for Singapore!BeFunky_null_665.jpg

 

Carmen loved this black dress below by Hunt No More (an Aussie brand). Available at the Wyld Shop.IMG_3429Le Specs sunglasses were spotted below too – love the leopard print ones at the front! Also available at the Wyld Shop. 
BeFunky_null_223.jpgInverted Edge were also offering jewellery and accessories for sale – they have such unique taste which is great! The belt bottom right was stunning and Carmen is also a big fan of that black wire bracelet on the right – simple but would look jazz up even a simple black or white shift dress. 

BeFunky_null33_3.jpg

The New Zealand brand Karen Walker was also made available at the event – they were all new pieces (so not part of the sale), but we love the funky prints! We feel that some of her prints are like a younger version of DVF! This brand has been spotted on Scarlett Johansson, and the Fall/Winter 2014 collection was showcased in front of a packed house at New York Fashion Week. Available via Inverted Edge.
BeFunky_IMG_3431.jpgSamantha Wills jewellery (which we LOVE!) was also on sale at 50% off! For those who love bohemian inspired jewellery, you must check out this popular Aussie brand (avail at Inverted Edge). Oh and Carmen purchased the white belt spotted at the top of this pic! Also purchased were two dresses, so we’ll showcase that soon!
BeFunky_null_334.jpg

 

The Inverted Edge guys also arranged a makeup artist and photographer to come in and  were offering complementary makeovers! A nice little touch, and Carmen decided to make the most of it!
BeFunky_IMG_3419.jpg

 

Carmen requested a natural look – here was the final result! The super talented makeup artist was Anggerek Hood.IMG_3453

Overall, a great event held by the Inverted Edge & Wyld Shop guys! You can check out their details below should you wish to visit their showrooms:

Feeling girly in our pastel combo

We love it when our outfits coincidentally go together and today happens to be one of those days! Carmen and Natasha caught up for a much needed blah blah blah session at the Providore this afternoon and, much to our delight, we were both wearing pastels!

Carmen looked gorge in her new Club Monaco flawy and breezy green silk top, paired with white denim (both Carmen and Natasha’s wardrobe staple) and her favorite Jimmy Choo jelly uber comfy sandals. Oh and of course her Chanel aviators always polishes her look perfectly.

20140626-153521-56121956.jpgNatasha is totally obsessed with lilac at the moment and found a pretty top in ZARA that was on sale. Yay! The best part about her ensemble is her multicolor vintage skirt by Emanuel Ungaro that used to be her mother’s! In fact, she’s convinced she has a picture of her mom wearing the skirt in the late 80s. See? Not all fashion items in the 80s were bad. Most, but not all (silently hoping scrunchies will never be back in style). Natasha chose her Chanel ballerinas to go with this feminine look and her Gucci super shades.

20140626-153522-56122407.jpg

20140626-153520-56120925.jpgWe totally LOVE the color combo of our pastel ensemble today. So pretty and feminine and very summery as well.

20140626-153521-56121459.jpgWe couldn’t resist asking someone to take a picture of us. :)20140626-153522-56122796.jpg

Sandro, at last you’ve arrived!

We were so stoked when we found out one of our favorite French brands, Sandro, opened in ION on Orchard! We love Sandro for its simplicity and versatility, as well as its gorgeous fabrics. Its cocktail dresses are totes amaze balls because of their interesting design and silhouette that seems to really complement women’s figure (that’s right Victoria’s Secret, not all of us are US size 0, most when actually have real curves and embrace our lady lumps!).

20140602-194512-71112353.jpg

We decided to do what we do best, having fun on the job by trying on our favorite pieces in the store – by the way Sandro participates in this year’s GSS and there are some pretty good deals at 40-50% off! Yay!!

Carmen tried on this amazing knit sweater in canary yellow, which goes perfectly with the eyelet white skirt. And come on, how funky are those shoes? This outfit is perfect for a chilled out night at the movies. If only Singapore’s weather can cool down by 10 degrees, that would be just perfect. Sigh.

20140602-194513-71113274.jpg

Carmen is loving this simple, yet edgy black bag. Come on, what’s not to love about it! It’s super versatile, with a hint of edgy to liven an otherwise plain outfit. It’s small without being too small, we detest bags that can only (barely) fit your lip gloss and phone.

20140602-194514-71114692.jpg

Natasha picked this green snakeskin romper, paired with plain white leather sneakers which is just so divine. The jumpsuit can be worn with cute strappy sandals, or if you want to take it up a few notches, you can put your kickass stilettos on and throw on a structured blazer, and a simple clutch would finish the look perfectly!

20140602-194513-71113748.jpg

20140602-194514-71114168.jpg

How awesome does the green look with yellow? We love this look combo!

20140602-194512-71112817.jpg

Okay, on to our second outfit of choice. Carmen picked out this delicious lace and satin top, combined with leather A-line skirt together with black leather edges with gold studs. Again, we love how Sandro’s classic items can be easily mixed and matched with other items to make a winning combo!

20140602-194642-71202297.jpg

Natasha picked out this gorgeous satin and lace black dress with a touch of white silk, quite similar to the top Carmen picked out. The white skinny belt with gold chain and zip-up black and white strappy high heel sandals balanced out the look so it doesn’t look to dainty and plain.

20140602-194642-71202754.jpgThis is Natasha’s absolute favorite dress in blush pink (there’s one hanging in her closet). The dress is really flattering on the body and very comfortable to wear, ideal for Singapore’s heat. Gold jewelry goes perfectly with blush pink!20140602-194641-71201425.jpgAhh the silk floral dress, another great item at Sandro! It’s so flowy and light, dress it up with heels and belt to cinch the waist or dress it down with a pair of cute strappy sandals. To complete the look? Tie your hair up in a messy bun or ponytail and off you go!

20140602-194641-71201860.jpgCarmen’s next outfit of choice was this black and white zip-up dress, which looks grey from the distance. This dress is so fun and subtly flirty because of the way the skirt moves. Jazz it up with a wide red belt or even hot pink to really make it pop. Definitely wearable for the office, depending on how you accessorize it.

20140602-194643-71203804.jpg

20140602-194643-71203226.jpgNatasha loves this red dress with cutout on the side! Who says cocktail dresses need to be on the safe side all the time? She decided to tone it down with a pair of white leather sneakers and a distressed leather jacket. A tad bit too warm to wear in Singapore, but hey, it’s perfect to wear on your next trip to Hong Kong or Japan right? Remember, there will always be an occasion to wear it, that’s what we always say. :)20140602-194644-71204220.jpgCarmen fell for this sweater and the moment she saw it on the hanger, she knew she had to try it on! Perfect to wear with white or blue denim, or leather shorts or cute skirt. Ok it practically looks good with anything and everything. Sigh.

20140602-194644-71204617.jpgSome of our favorite accessories in Sandro, there’s heaps more but this is going to end up being a super long blog post if we put everything in! We really like the see through small sling bag in snakeskin.

20140602-221855-80335253.jpgHere’s our top picks for shoes and sandals. Please don’t ask us to pick our favorite, because we want all of them!20140602-221855-80335451.jpgSandro boutique can be found on level 3 of ION Orchard, conveniently right next to Alice and Olivia just in case you want to pop by afterwards.

 

Nine West, we love your summer sandals!

We’ve always loved Nine West, it’s affordable and comfy! Their neutral colored pumps are perfect for any girl’s shoe closet (we have a few pairs lying around in ours).

As Natasha wondered around Raffles City, her eyes were drawn towards these amaze balls beauties. How gorgeous are these sandals?! We want it in every color please! They’re Nine West’s limited edition collection – heck we don’t care what collection they fall under – they’re so darn beautiful! Pricewise? A tad steep for Nine West at SGD228, but we like to think they’re worth it. One must always try to justify one’s purchase to oneself. *sheepish smile*

20140530-120404.jpgAnd check these sandals below! Again – GORGEOUS!! And we think the gold tip is a nice touch as well, especially if you’re a klutzy girl like we are and trip over just about anything. The gold tip will protect your sandals from chipping (cringe-worthy trip moments are not meant to be shared in this forum. Yes, some of them were very embarrassing!).

20140530-120411.jpg

When in doubt, stick to black and white

Today we hit up Sarnies on Telok Ayer Street for a meeting (and to recover from a fashion tv event last night!), and we’ve gotta say – black and white just seemed to be the theme of today.
BeFunky_null_13.jpg

Carmen was having one of those days where everything called for simplicity. So she wore a basic white tee with black trousers from Zara, Kate Spade bag and Jimmy Choo jelly sandals, and added a necklace bought in Bangkok to jazz things up a bit.BeFunky_20140529-150915.jpgNatasha also wore black and white but jazzed it up with a pop of fuchsia! She wore her fun “Ain’t Laurent without Yves” tee paired perfectly with her Saint Laurent bag, Kate Spade houndstooth skirt, Ferragamo ballet flats along with Valentino & Hipanema arm candy!

And here’s a closer look at our outfits! 
BeFunky_null_2.jpg

20140529-150941.jpg

There are so many gorgeous lane ways just off Telok Ayer street – we loved the European lamposts found in this random alley! Simply perfect for those black and white days….
BeFunky_null_166.jpg

 

 

GSS: Jimmy Choo at Paragon

In case you haven’t noticed, Jimmy Choo are participating in the Great Singapore Sale! Carmen visited the Paragon store recently and noticed there were selected shoes up to 30% off! So we’re talking normal prices found in the UK then….

Nonetheless, we have taken some photos of some of their sale items for your benefit…. Note that the most popular sizes obviously sell out quickly…

Loving every..single…pair in the below pic – if only they offered “buy two get one free” promotions!!!20140527-171605-62165780.jpg

Loving the bright summery colours below and the graffiti inspired printed clutch – we’re seeing that trend everywhere at the moment!

20140527-171606-62166144.jpg

Again, we are loving these nude pumps with black strap below – a fun yet still corporate friendly twist on a classic shoe! All these shoes below also on sale (can you believe it?!). Can you tell that Carmen & Natasha are big Jimmy Choo fans yet?!

20140528-135804-50284708.jpg

Very “cruise wear” appropriate shoes below – we can see these styles worn at Prive cafe by the Marina! The colour combinations are divine. 20140528-135804-50284596.jpg

Great classic ballet pumps as seen below are also on sale! 20140528-135804-50284940.jpg

 

Carmen wishes she bought the yellow wedges below, but unfortunately they didn’t have her size. Natasha can confirm that Jimmy Choo wedges are some of the most comfy wedges on the market…..(ok also some of the most expensive), but comfortable shoes in general that also look amazingly stylish? Well that’s priceless in our minds!20140528-135804-50284467.jpg

 

ALL THESE SHOES BELOW ARE ON SALE!!! Where to start – we’re loving the red and leopard print strappy sandals on top, and also loving the gold glittery flats down below! 20140528-135804-50284835.jpgThe sale continues at the Jimmy Choo stores at Paragon and MBS. Get in quick before they all sell out!

 

 

When life gives you lemons, do what Kate Spade does and make a fashion statement out of it!

20140525-152516.jpgNatasha went to the Amalfi coast two years ago and fell head over heels in love with everything that is Amalfi – the picture above was taken in the town of Positano, one of her favorite places in the world!

If there’s one thing the Amalfians (yes, that’s a made-up word) are obsessed about, it would undoubtedly be lemon. You can see it, you can taste it (did someone say Limoncello?), you can smell it in the air. Let the pictures below be the proof!

,l20140525-152528.jpg

20140525-152536.jpgAnd here’s a picture of Natasha, well-camouflaged amidst all things lemon thanks to her floral ZARA pants.

20140603-224252-81772943.jpgNow we’re both huge fans of Kate Spade and were beyond excited to see how Kate Spade was just as obsessed with lemons and Amalfi by the looks of her Spring collection. We love the display at Kate Spade’s ION Orchard store! We want everything on that table – where should we start – the hat, bag, Bambini bag, the shoes, cardigan, scarf, EVERYTHING!20140530-214908.jpgKate Spade, why are your bags always so darn cute!20140525-152548.jpg

20140530-214919.jpgAhhh the Fiat Bambino, quintessentially Italian.  This bag might be a bit tricky to carry, but it would make the cutest home decoration!

20140525-152556.jpgSome people think this lemon-shaped bag is a tad too much, but we don’t think so! How cute would it look with a summer dress or even capri pants and cute flats!20140525-152603.jpgWe adore the straw bag below and the camera bag – soooo cute!!20140525-152610.jpgHow cute is the bag and matching flip flops? Perfect for a weekend stroll! 20140525-152617.jpg

20140525-152625.jpgWe think the lemon collection makes a perfect addition to our summer wardrobe, but you have to be quick, their bags are selling out very quickly! Psssst.. Just a quick tip, if the Kate Spade stores run out of your shoe size, you can try your luck at Robinsons on Orchard because they sell Keds for Kate Spade shoes there. :)

 

 

Spotlight on Alice and Olivia – one of Carmen and Natasha’s favorite New York designers!

Both of us are HUGE fans of Alice and Olivia. Natasha had her first encounter with the brand in its Meatpacking District store in New York City and instantly fell in love with the whimsical yet practical designs, while Carmen’s first Alice and Olivia experience was in Hong Kong’s IFC Mall store.

We were both equally ecstatic when we found out Alice and Olivia opened up a shop in ION Orchard. We decided to get in touch with the brand’s Marketing and Communications team to see if we can take a few pictures of some of our favorite items in the shop and much to our delight, we got a very friendly and quick response! (Thank you Juliana and Elaine!)

Alice and Olivia is a New York contemporary clothing company with the uber talented yummy mummy Stacey Bendet at the helm. Having launched at Barneys in 2002, the brand is now sold in over fifty countries – now including Singapore! Yay!

This is the façade of the Alice and Olivia store on 3rd floor of ION Orchard. The visual is rather Alice in Wonderland, don’t you think? Especially with the gorgeous tall hats on the mannequins.

20140501-230136.jpgHow awesome is this light fixture on the ceiling?! It reminds us of fireworks! it’s such a standout piece in the store that we just had to take a picture of it.

20140518-213853.jpgWe were told that Stacey is very hands on when it comes to the design aspect of her stores worldwide, she personally picks out one piece of furniture to go into her store. For Singapore, she picked out this beautiful wooden, retro looking drawer, an original item from the 60s which has been given a second chance in life. We love how eclectic pieces are scattered around the boutique and they all seem to gel together! Oh and yes, that’s Dylan’s Candy Bar candies you’re seeing – Natasha is a big fan!

20140518-213847.jpgStacey describes her brand as sophisticated with a playful sensibility – which we definitely think sums it up. She’s really into mix and match, which we totally love! We adore her ball gowns and also her office wear. It was really difficult to pick out our favorite pieces because they’re all oh-so-amazing, but after containing our excitement we finally decided on the stuff we want to try on. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. :)

20140518-213833.jpg

20140518-213916.jpgWe love the way the brand differentiates its collection through clever, quirky and witty labels like the ones below. The ‘employed’ label is more for office wear, therefore more conservative and subdued – with a bit of fun infused into it.

20140518-213938.jpgThe ‘air’ label is for the jetsetters in all of us. Yes, we agree comfort is key when you’re dashing from one airport to another, but one need not look so frumpy while doing it! Remember, you NEVER know who you might bump into at the airport or on the plane and a bit of effort goes a loooooong way.

20140518-213947.jpgWe decided to try on a few key pieces from each label – and of course the Spring/Summer collection is so gorgeous. Below is Natasha’s pick:

20140518-213956.jpgNatasha is head over heels over the red lips dress and even dreamt about it several times. To buy or not to buy – that’s always a constant conundrum we both face. Sigh.

There’s a zipper on the back of the dress, another design feature in a lot of Alice and Olivia’s dresses – which is where practicality comes into play. Carmen opted for a tailored fit black pants with some killer heels and this beautiful shirt, perfect for work. The best part about Alice and Olivia is that there’s only a limited amount of pieces in each size, so if you see something you like you better grab it fast!

20140518-214037.jpg

20140518-220020.jpgThe ball gowns. Oh the ball gowns. We are in awe of every one of them. The one on the mannequin has got to be our favorite, which is why we decided to leave that one alone just in case we find it difficult to walk away from it.

20140518-214423.jpgCarmen chose this gorgeous lace dress in nude color, perfectly accented with the simple yet glamorous looking necklace. We love the fabric panels on the dress and it’s so demure and sexy at the same time. Natasha chose the ball gown skirt, paired with a cropped white polo shirt for a more preppy look. The skirt is amazing, it’s the perfect length and fit – the kinda skirt you would wear to the theater on a perfect crisp spring evening.

20140518-214433.jpg

20140518-214453.jpg

20140518-214511.jpgThe beaded black and white dress below is very Great Gatsby don’t you think? Natasha is in love… yet again… It’s so classy and chic, and the length makes it a tad flirty without going overboard. Perfect for a cocktail party or even a spring wedding.

20140518-214601.jpgThe Alice and Olivia beaded clutch is the perfect fit! Of course you can go a bit adventurous and pair it with a pop of color – yellow would work well. Or red! Loving the zebra pint carpet, too, by the way.

20140518-214647.jpgSpeaking of yellow, check out the yellow pants worn below by Carmen! Such a cute, yet badass, combo with the black and white cami! And the peeptoe booties? Gorgeous! We have a closer snapshot of it further down in this blog post.

20140518-215912.jpg

20140518-215923.jpgNatasha went straight to the beaded jacket when she was picking out her outfits. Not only IS the detailing is amazing, it’s also versatile and can be dressed up and down. Jeans and killer heels is always an option. But shorts will also make an awesome ensemble! Again, yellow is always a great ‘neutral’ color to make your outfit pop. The Alexander McQueen shoes below is perfect for this outfit!

20140518-215931.jpgCarmen totally rocked this ensemble, don’t you think? That bamboo print jacket is so damn nice and the pop of magenta really made the whole outfit much more interesting. And again, those peep toe booties won our vote!

20140518-215943.jpgHow cute are the shoes below? That’s actually Stacey’s profile, with her famous sunnies and red lips embedded into these adorbs flats! 20140518-221015.jpgHow pretty are these lace shoes below? Make it less feminine by teaming it with a pair of leather pants or leather skirt! or keep it elegant and simple with dark denim and this season’s must-have, the crop top.20140518-221024.jpgBelow are the peep toe laser cut booties we mentioned earlier, the one that Carmen wore with the yellow pants. How adorable that they’re all cut out into tiny little hearts!

20140524-135306.jpgCarmen and Natasha totally dig this tote bag. Perfect for work and perfect for everyday use because of its tough leather. We think the color is so gorgeous and unusual.

20140518-221039.jpgRemember what we said earlier about Alice and Olivia’s clothes being practical? Well the photo below captures that aspect perfectly. Many of her skirts and dresses have elastic very subtly incorporated into the design. How genius is that? We’ve all had our ‘I feel fat today’ moments, and this is such a clever way to combat those days. You can still have the nice slim fitting without feeling like you can’t breathe or eat.

20140518-221048.jpgThere you have it! Our review on Alice and Olivia in Singapore. Admittedly, her clothes are a bit on the expensive side compared to the prices in NYC. However, her design is so unique and the fabrics used are all so yummy that we think it’s worth the price you pay for.  We’ll let you be the judge of that, next time you go to ION Orchard, pop by to the Alice and Olivia boutique on level 3!
