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.

Sorry for the cheesy title. 🙂

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!

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

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 🙂

I admit I’m in love with all things eyelets, well-done lace and embroidery.

I like the first and the last. Don’t really fancy full lace all over me.

I’ve watched a handful of movies this vacation so far. But the one that stood out the most in terms of stylish eye candy would undoubtedly be the ultimate sleeper: French romantic comedy Hors De Prix, or in English, Priceless. Those who’ve caught it would agree with me – it was pure orgasmic eye pleasure. The coastal resorts of Monaco, the pebbled bourgeoise rows of Guccis, Diors, Chanels. And of course, lead actress’ Audrey Tatou’s totally gorgeous outfits!

Because she plays a golddigger in the movie, her clothes are of course, fantabulous and she looks straight out of the runway.

This dress got everyone talking. I don’t know what brand it is but isn’t it absolutely stunning? The  gold rope halter neck and the dull gray base looks so perfect together. And the mini paper umbrellas in her bun looked so cute! (They’re not part of the outfit but part of the erm, plot.)

audreywhite.jpg

Ahh. The other dress that got tongues wagging. Again, the gold rope halter with the unique U-neckline makes this so resort and laidback but ultra glam! For a flair of Parisian chic, Audrey’s character never left her ciggs behind.

audreycream.jpg

A cream satin-ish dress with gold hooped straps. Very chic again. Btw that man beside her was one of her many golddigging conquests. Ugh.

audreyblack.jpg

And lastly, this classic black number was updated with small gold hoop straps. It was so pretty…although I kinda forgot how the front of the dress looks like. Heh. But anyway, the entire movie was shot in superb technicolour and the sceneries were just ohsoamazing.

Plotwise? Very witty, smart and funny. But then they dropped it like a hot potato right towards the end. Ouch. So not fun after that. You’re left hungry for something else while the credits roll.

Anyway, Audrey must have had a superb stylist on hand for the film. Because she looked far from Parisian chic in her premiere outfits…

audreycharitygalaparis.jpg

She chopped off her locks. Okay this isn’t that bad although I feel like grabbing that bag away from her and replace them with more modern ones. Heh. But otherwise, I quite like the purple dress…very Topshop right now.

audreymadridpremiere.jpg

But this? To your very own Madrid premiere?? The purple velvet blazer screams eggplant. Paired with normal jeans, they both scream yawn. Oh, whatever happened to poor little Amelie? 😦

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.

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.

hilary-fendi.jpg

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??

-SB-

 This post is strictly about the gushing of Chanel bags. And nothing more…

The classic Chanel flap bag.

MK (or is it Ashley? Oh, it’s either one of the Olsens) carrying a vintage-looking Chanel shopping tote.

chanel-vintage.jpg

I *love* this vintage Chanel. The chain straps. The hobo shape. And *subtle* show-off logo there. Perfect.

The uber famous quilted tote with the dangling Chanel logo. How not to love?

I was watching an old episode of The Tyra Show just now and she featured some hot young designers to look out for. Although the designers didn’t really look, erm, young, their creations were really commendable. The first designer struck me the most. Robert Rodriguez (a name that already sounds so fashionable) has some of the simplest yet flattering creations. I couldn’t find the exact navy blue dress that the model on the show wore but judging from these two below, I conclude he makes really pretty but modern twists of the LBD…

I love the ruffled effect on the first – not too much nor too little. And the second – did I tell you I completely adore eyelets? And the scoopneck and puffy sleeves do the trick. Available on revolveclothing and eluxury respectively.

Oh ya, the girls from The Hills – LC, Whitney and Audrina – were all present in the above-mentioned episode of The Tyra Show. Whitney, as usual, looked stunning, as they each gave comments after a ‘runway show’.  I can’t wait for The Hills 3 to premiere.
