Happy New Year everyone! I hope the New Year was a great one for you guys!
With the new year, comes a brand spankin’ new beginning for me, and I’m really psyched about what 2017 has in store for me. I’m working on a new project at the moment. and I can’t wait to share it with everyone!
But till then, here’s my first outfit post of the year!
The kind team over at Shein offered me an item of my picking, and it took me a long time to finally decide on this distressed denim jacket that I’m sure I’ll get plenty of wear out of. While denim isn’t the exactly tropic-friendly, the rips in this piece makes it a lot more wearable in our sunny, sunny Singapore.
As a seasoned online shopper, I can safely tell you that Shein’s order fulfillment is easily one of the fastest I have encountered, like ever, and yes, I am making the comparison even against local Singaporean retailers. I believe I received my package within 2-3 days, which was a real pleasant surprise!
I had plenty of styling ideas for this denim jacket swirling around in my head, and I decided to go along with this casual luxe look, pairing it up with a satin slip dress, and a pair of velvet booties for a play on textures.
If I had a nickel for every time someone complimented me on these pair of booties, I’d have enough change to get a nice cuppa for myself! This pair of grey RiRi velvet booties were very kindly gifted by the lovely team over at Essex Shoe Store, and I’m not lying – every girl needs one of these in their shoe collection. These babies are versatile enough for everyday wear, but are not too basic, if you get what I mean.
