Event: Staple The Label X The Rumour Mill

21.8.14

Last week I was lucky enough to have been invited to view the amazing Staple The Label resort collection for 2014. As we entered the doors of "House of Quirky", Jessica and I were greeted by healthy drinks by Green Press and of course the lovely team from The Rumour Mill. The room was filled with gorgeous clothes from current and next season, as well as both fresh flowers and floral prints. We ended up spending more than one hour at the styling suite since we got to play dress ups using their clothes. Honestly it was really tough to narrow down the pieces we wanted to try since we pretty much loved everything. Many thanks to The Rumour Mill and Staple The Label for spoiling and having us!


Flatlay I

Although flatlays are aesthetically pleasing, they take ages to organise. However, I'm a sucker for anything pretty, so I don't mind the work as long as I get something beautiful and worth posting for the blog or instagram.
Although I have been following Beginning Boutique's Facebook page for a long time, it's only recently that I started buying from them. I find some items are quite expensive, but when the items they have are so pretty and not available elsewhere... it's hard to resist. However, if you are lucky, you can get occasional bargains such as his dress. This was originally $80+ and reduced to $40. Now you understand why I couldn't resist right? I thought the dress was already stunning by itself: the asymmetrical hem, the collar details and the crackle print... So I paired it with these black minimalist heels and a black clutch.
I'm no beauty expert but I feel like I have to give this product a shoutout since I have fallen in love with it. The Batiste dry shampoo has made it into my favourite beauty products, especially the cherry one. I simply hate flat hair; and since my hair is quite long, it gets heavy and the top of my head becomes flat. So dry shampoo really helps to elevate the roots of my hair without making it coarse and tangled, unlike Osis+ Dust It.

I'm planning to do more flatlay posts instead of the usual outfit posts, what do you guys think?

Crackling

I mentioned in the previous post how I loved The Stables of Como, so here is proof... I went back for a second visit! Although the line seemed quite long at first, we got a table pretty quick or time just passes by really fast while I took outfit photos.

I always have a trend obsession; some stays and some is only temporary. Monochrome has been upgraded to permanent while crackle and marble print are still on a casual contract. I blame this completely on Balenciaga. Since Alexander Wang's debut collection was launched, everyone became obsessed with the crackle and marble print that gives simple silhouettes (e.g. a basic shirt) the wow factor.
Here is my street style take on the crackle print trend. I love mixing different textures together in an outfit, especially when they are the opposite. So I thought the soft-silky crackle-printed shirt would go well with a tough pleather skirt. Since I didn't want to wear tights and the weather is still on the chilly side, I chose to strut in these thigh-high boots that provides me with warmth and style.
