Decadent Gold Pleats








Top, Skirt, Bag: Kate Spade Saturday
Shoes: Love, Bonito
Shades: Prada

Today's post marks the first of many blog series shot in my recent trip to Sydney. This trip to Sydney is my second (although I've transited at Sydney Airport thrice while en route to Tasmania), the first was highly unmemorable - and I say this in the nicest way possible - I guess when you're 15, traveling to Sydney on a budget, accompanied by 30 other 15 year olds from your school, all of whom 3 teachers found terribly hard to control and manage, you're bound to not have a good time. I promised myself to really experience Sydney for real this time: I had friends from Canberra and Sydney who came to stay at my Airbnb apartment with me, every day we would visit a new cafe for breakfast, explore and shoot at the main Sydney attractions in between meals, and queue up for hours for famous ice cream (Cow & Moon) and dessert (Watermelon cake from Black Star Pastry). During one of the sunnier days we drove out to Bondi beach early in the morning for a dip at Bondi Icebergs Club, we also got to experience our first ever temporary Jewelry tattoos which are all the rage in Australia, had Fish and Chips by the bay, and ended our morning at the beach with a quick midday nap on the sand. Sydney in 2015 is definitely on the to-travel list, so hopefully that will happen!

Today's post features a full Kate Spade Saturday look shot by my lovely Christabel. We stumbled across this pillared alleyway courtesy of our Uber driver who highly recommended we shoot here so kudos to our awesome driver because I don't think I could have imagined any other setting for this KSS Christmas-season-worthy outfit. I've fallen in love with the flow of the pleated skirt, the way the skirt moves just makes it so easy to photograph - every shot we took saw the skirt flowing so well and perfectly, definitely a must-wear statement piece for all your festive parties and celebrations! The top, skirt and cross-body (another one of my favourites from this season's collection) is available in all local Kate Spade Saturday stores, KSS is located at Ion Orchard, Ngee Ann City, and Westgate in case you didn't know! Follow Kate Spade Saturday on Facebook for more details and updates!

Let's Talk About This Tank Top











Grey Tank Top: Carrislabelle
Outer Shirt: Stradivarius
Skirt: Stradivarius
Boots: Polo Ralph Lauren
Hat: The Editors Market
Bag: Sandy Trove

I absolutely love today's outfit. We start from the hat of my dreams, to a tank-top with the most desirable and talk-about-worthy strap details, the perfect slouchy outer boyfriend shirt, a casual denim pencil skirt (see my newfound obsession for pencil skirts in the post below), and to end it all, my favourite pair of boots which you guys must have seen me wearing to death

I had such a hard time pairing today's featured grey tank top, because there are just SO MANY ways to pair it, should I pair it with jeans, a pair shorts, a skirt, or overalls? I'm pretty you'll have fun styling the top as well, plus, who doesn't love a top with such classy and chic thin straps?

Silhouette








Top: All Would Envy
Skirt: Dressabelle
Bag: Kate Spade
Increasingly I find myself developing a love for pencil skirts. I had my inhibitions with body hugging silhouettes (i.e. body-con dresses and pencil skirts) because I was a little shy when it came to wearing them. But I couldn't resist trying on this Dressabelle floral pencil skirt when I saw it, and not only did I come to embrace the ahem "hip-hugging" fit, but I loved the silky and comfortable material of the skirt! If only I had Kim Kardashian's body - which has been the talk of the town recently - then I'd wear clothing body hugging silhouettes all day.

Today's post was shot in the wee hours of the morning at the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Did you know, Game of Thrones was shot here? And I kid you not, when Amanda and I stayed at an Airbnb apartment in Dubrovnik, our host was the assistant director of, you guessed it, Game of Thrones, and we were so blessed and thankful for having him as our host as he gave all the "good spots" to shoot in in the old town.
