coral jersey bubble dress – rachel pally from eclecticism (bought this long long ago like 4 years back when they were in mandarin and you actually felt homely and loved shopping there. )

bird feather necklace – House of Harlow 1960 you know where to get it in singapore, if not, reach me and i’ll tell (:

how to do bright colours without feeling like a bird of paradise on full display? a few suggestions

– bright enough to perk your skin up, but not to wash you out

– simple cuts and in solid colours. bright colours with patterns are something reserved for those in another league

– dial it down with neutral accessories like bags or scarves, or throw on a cardigan (by now you know my favourite item ever – cardiiiss)

checkered men’s button up sweater – unknown shop in fareast plaza having moving out sale like SGD10!!!!!!!!

houndstooth shawl worn as scarf – SGD12 @ uniqlo

prints on prints? patterns on patterns? some styling tips to work that houndstooth (or whatever) into your daily outfit

– use a darker and less striking pattern as the base, i.e. darker pattern on sweater v.s. striking houndstooth on white

– try to mix and match, i.e. polka dots with small stripes, or checks with pinstripes etc…

– if it clashes, then it’s out. but if it clashes in a good way, go for it!

again, go with the mantra, be adventurous and try so you’d figure out what looks good for you and on you, then build on that, after a while you’d find you get better and better at finding/building your individual style.
