Mixing patterns is not an easy job, but this time I paired this black and white boyfriend striped tshirt with a monochrome bandage skirt. To top off the look, I wear a mini bag and a pair of pumps with a splash of color.

In 2009, French luxury brand, Hermès, launched Petit h: a “re-creativity laboratory” of sorts that up-cycled remnant materials from the Hermès factory floors into new designs and works. Under the guidance of Mme Pascale Mussard, Petit h re-imagines and reuses various Hermès textiles – particularly leathers – into everything from birdhouses, pinwheels, stool tops, and countless other home wares.
In Singapore petit h will take place at Hermès Liat Towers and will officially open to the public tomorrow to 11 August 2013. You won't expect the artistically luxurious recycled pieces with Hermès elements in them. A definite must-see. Also a legit excuse to fly from Indonesia to Singapore.
I'm still loving the silk knot bracelet my boyfriend got me from petit h in Hong Kong a while ago. Apparently they have a longer version which can be used as a necklace or a double wrap bracelet (see first image). According to Bagaholicboy they are SGD240 each. I guess it's time to collect.
Anyway, watch petit h in the making here.

I was introduced to Beauphoria, an auto-rotating curling iron, by a friend earlier this year and finally they sent me one to try out. What's best about the product is that they have a left and right turning key, so I can curl my hair in the 'direction' I've always done before, which is inwards. You can get a natural wavy hair effect after 10-15 minutes, just like mine! For the look above, I'm using the round curling iron (C‐01) with a 32mm diameter.
Anyway, it's a major beauty investment that will change your everyday routine, I would say. So get your hands on one. Click here to watch the tutorial video and follow Beauphoria on Instagram @beauphoria.

It's my second look for Gap Styld.by. I love this semi-sheer soft slouchy tshirt that is so comfortable to wear. For a going-out look, I paired it with a leather circle skirt and a playful lace up pumps.

"This was a shoot full of love and laughter, says Christopher Bailey, Burberry chief creative officer. "It was such a treat to work with Sienna and Tom, and to capture their magic together."
Real-life couple Sienna Miller, 31, and Tom Sturridge, 27, are the new stars of Burberry's Autumn/Winter 2013 ad campaign, and in the ultimate act of PDA, the two kiss and snuggle for the camera.
The longtime members of the Burberry fashion family were shot together as a couple for the first time. Miller gave birth to their first child, daughter Marlowe, 11 months ago. Sienna, the girl who once shame-walked out of Diddy’s apartment, the same one who couldn’t show up at a party without making it all about her, isn’t that girl anymore. What a difference a baby makes.
Featuring Autumn/Winter Burberry Prorsum, London and Brit collections, the campaign highlights men’s and women’s outerwear and accessories – available in stores globally from 3 July 2013. Watch the campaign video in which they are featured together in the new Burberry ads below and check out The Crush bag, The Boston bag, The Britain watch and animal print sunglasses as seen on the Autumn/Winter 2013 runway.

Just wanted to share with you photos from my cousin's wedding last week. I was wearing a mermaid dress with a peplum detailing in my favorite shade of blue. I'm thinking of making a short version of the gown for my line (www.poise24.com) since I received a lot of emails about the dress. Perhaps you can also let me know what you think.

Jewellery designer Tom Binns has paired up with super stylish shoe designer Charlotte Olympia on an edgy new collection specifically to celebrate the Costume Institute Gala in NYC this summer. Obviously they tried to stick with the theme Punk: Chaos to Couture. However, fear not, these feminine yet rebellious shoes and accessories still have an outstanding luxe-glam factor.
The six-piece collection is available online here and from Charlotte Olympia shops in Mayfair and Manhattan. Time to get very excited about all the safety pins, platforms, Perspex and the glorious array of metallic, neon and sultry black. The mirrored platform heel, so-called “Dolly Riot”, costs $1,490 and is littered with gold and silver safety pins. The already well-known “Kitty” pumps by Charlotte Olympia have been given a punk revamp by way of neon and pin decoration, costing $813. Her “Pandora” clutch also received the anarchist makeover treatment from Tom Binns, and costs $1,334.

Extending his venerable talents to the realms of couture, Roman designer Giambattista Valli pushes creative boundaries with this line of show-stopping dresses. He turned a fresh eye to modernist design with his Fall 2013 Couture collection.
Heavily inspired by fine china, his fifth couture collection was all about the detail. Ruffled textures, blue and white floral prints and feminine, flouncy shapes made this couture show as breathtakingly beautiful as ever.

Coach's latest 'Summer in the City' lookbook is shot and styled just like a street style photograph in nature. Shot by photographer Scott Schuman a.k.a The Sartorialist, the lookbook features obscure angles captured across the spectrum of a summer in New York City. It's indeed naturally beautiful although to some people it could be merely a fad fashion photography. The images feature Coach’s newest summer accessories, including handbags, crossbodies, watches, travel bags, and many more.
