I’m back! Only because WordPress has totally upgraded itself, allowing an ‘upload a picture’ feature. And of course, my current objects of fascination: the black blazer & scarf.

Obviously, this trend has been on for quite some time. Just look at the celebrities below:

Ashley Olsen looks stunning on the right. I’m totally loving how she casually folded up the blazer sleeves.

Here, supermodel Gisele Bundchen uses a shorter and lighter scarf. Perfect for summer.

What’s a post without Lauren, eh? Even a checkered blazer can work the look, only if you have a solid coloured scarf.

I don’t really fancy Nicky Hilton’s look cos it’s too black and monotonous. She did try to highlight the scarf, though, by choosing a sparkley/glittery one.

Another Hollywood girl we love, Rachel Bilson. I’m totally adoring her entire look here. Her long yellow scarf looks a little patterned from here. And on a side note, her shoes! How cute!

Last, I’ve got Sienna Miller. Somehow, she got the combo all wrong to me. I think the scarf is too long and thick – looks like a blanket here – and she’s pairing her blazer-scarf top with a denim mini skirt. Ugh, how tacky.

I think this looks works best when paired with skinny jeans and flats or heels. So now I’m wondering how I can get a nice fitting blazer that’s not too thick for this humid tropical weather. I want one in black, with 3/4 sleeves possibly. Yeah, something like this one from Urban Outfitters. Maybe I’ll get it tailored. Hmmm.

As for the scarf, well, scarves are pretty hot here right now too. So there’s not much difficulty in getting them. But tacky designs are a must to avoid! This one from UO isn’t too bad, although the price is abit too steep.

I think the look is classic, it’s a very basic look that can be sustained through seasons. And great for corporate wear too, when work beckons.

My parents are the best kind in the world. Although they irk me sometimes, deep down, they’re the best I could ever ask for. For my 21st, here’s what I got….

Sorry for the cheesy title. πŸ™‚

I have been hunt for sunnies since the longest time. SB probably rolling her eyes as she reads this. Haha. But anyways, the main issue with me is probably i can never find sunnies that fit me well since my nose is a tad flat. Any sunnies i try slides off to the tip of the nose!

Β Until i managed to find this style of sunnies that i think can fit me pretty well.

vintage-3.jpgvintage-sunnies.jpg

My main qualm? Probably the fact it covers half of my face.

So i surfed the net to find..

Nicole Ritchie, the pint sized style icon donning shades half of her face. And she does look chic and hot right?

Okie but i must remember im a mere mortal. Heh πŸ™‚

Since graduating from her whimsical Lizzie McGuire outfits, Hilary has stuck mostly to skinny jeans, heels and mini dresses. With her new bod, they seem to work well.

hilary-mr-chow.jpg

A dinner outfit. Long black tunic, skinnies and cream peeptoe heels. The bold black necklace is cute, although I’m not a fan of bold accessories. She could have done without the zebra hat, though.

hilary-starbucks.jpg

A running errand outfit. We can’t copy the many layers of jackets and scarves here but we can always make do with the yellow flats and skinnies look!

hilary-jay-leno.jpg

At a Jay Leno show, Hilary looked resplendent in her sheer makeup. I just love her hair and makeup. She rarely goes anywhere without the huge hoops and black necklaces, ya?

hilary-white-tank.jpg

Ahh, the long tank and black skinnies combo. She wears white heels damn well. I love the accessories on her.

hilary-muchmusic.jpg

I told you she’s not all about her skinnies. In girly nights, she rocks her legs in mini dresses like this multicoloured frock. Note the silver heels, the gold bangles and gold hoops.

hilary-yellow.jpg

And then she decides to go all summery in this adorable yellow mini dress. Her hair’s all neat in that grey headwrap. Very cute.

But we know Hilary’s a bag addict like so many of us women. Here’s a huge Fendi handcarry/tote/luggage?

lv-mizi-vienna.jpg

And I dug up this old pic of her carrying the LV Mizi Vienna. It reminds me of Chanel bags. Oh lookie, how does she walk in those Louboutin pumps??

I’ve laid low on the online shopping front. More active in getting more topshop from the shop itself. Heh.

Β Nonetheless, got some stuffs from here and there.

This grey UO jumper finally came. It was great cutting. But the material a bit thick for here. Waiting for a rainy day. Heh, thought of pairing it with a short puff sleeved blouse for the preppy look πŸ™‚

Another top from UO. Waiting for this to come. Its actually not from junk food but its more tunic like in terms of length. Nice baby blue colour.

My little miss bossy tee came too. Loves it loads. Perfect cutting, perfect colour and perfect fit. Like what SB said, worth the wait πŸ™‚

And my favourite accessory of the moment…

My tiffany knots ring! Which SB agreed is a real charmer πŸ™‚

-SW-

Nope, contrary to popular belief (assuming there was one to begin with), both SW and I aren’t dead yet. πŸ™‚ School’s been a bummer as usual and we haven’t had the mood nor time to visit WordPress for updates. And unfortunately, it’ll remain so because in a week or so, we’ll be facing the dreaded exams. 😦

But here’s a quick update on some gems I’ve found. I didn’t quite realise I found their cheaper alternatives around town. πŸ™‚

Hokay, I’m a poor student so I can’t really afford this MJ baby. 😦 But SW alerted me to this tiny shop located in one of the Eastern heartland malls which sells tons of good quality inspired totes. I dropped by the place today and got this baby for about $50. A raw deal from the real deal, I must say. And it’s of superb quality and looks exactly like MJ’s. Haha. I can’t wait to use it! Ps: SW is head over heels in love with Hilary Duff and we suspect she owns more than one of these Hudsons!

That’s DVF’s Beach dress in chocolate zebra prints. SW and I bought the exact copy of this at our nearby mall! It was on 50% off from its usual price of about $65. We’re thinking of pairing a plain tee underneath this zebra babydoll. πŸ™‚ We finally got ourselves a dress, SW!

And I got this Dorothy Perkins jumper tunic for only $23. Apparently Topshop sells it for the same price too. I layer it with a plain tee and pair it with black capris. There was one day when i wore it with cuffed jeans too, heh. I’m really into these kinda tops to hide the hideous amount of flabs I’ve been piling on lately. 😦

Forever 21’s etched floral bangle is so pretty but I got one at a local accessories store for half the price. πŸ™‚ It’ll be great with my printed skirts or vintage tees.

And I was never a ring-girl before this but I’m loving how a simple accessory on the finger can brighten up an outfit. I hate wearing earrings or necklaces so I need something else. πŸ˜‰ Anyway, I got this ring for again, half the price at F21. I got another ring, albeit a little pricier, from DP but alas, I can’t scour for the online picture. It’s basically very chunky, with one huge jade-like stone and two smaller stones in emerald and cream (or something).

And online, I purchased a light tan tote and a rimmel blusher which SW raves about. Will share about them once they arrive!

After such damage done to my wallet, I need to ‘punish’ myself with the piles of readings waiting for me. Till then, much love from SW and I. πŸ˜€
