Extraordinary

DSC_0766 DSC_0794 DSC_0776

I am back after a long break. You must have been wondering what happened to me? Well, you guys did see my last post where I had this boot on my leg. I have a fracture and I have been in this boot for close to a month, and I still have to wear it for another two weeks, hopefully the next doctor's visit on April 28th will bring some good news.

So how did I manage to fracture my foot you may be asking? Well I tripled over some boxes at my work place, and what happened to look like a simple fall turned out to be the worst nightmare of my life. For a person like me who has been wearing heels almost everyday, it is a NIGHTMARE. Well, on the bright side of things I am thankful for what I have. It's just a matter of time, patience and much needed care that I need at the moment.

The cast may be not in this picture but, I did wear it after my shoot. So, how was your long weekend? I had an incredible week, I did what I wanted to do which was going to church on both Good Friday and Easter Sunday, meeting up with my beautiful friends for a movie, dinner and even ended up going to see Annie Leibovitz amazing photographs, a true inspiration.

See you all soon in my next blog post, drop in my Instagram for a teaser.

Wishing you all A Blessed Easter.

Friends with Style!

Happy Women's Day!!!

When two friends with style meet up on weekdays after work or weekends, all they have to talk about is their dream closet and their world around fashion/ street styles/ Fashion Blogs/ ZARA etc.

So on International Women's Day my girl friend Anna & I decided to do a shoot together for Rach-in-Fashion. She is one of the stylish girl friends in my circle. On this women's day I decided to share the spotlight with Anna to introduce a fresh sense of style, who knows there may be more and more collaborations.

Minimal Chic!

My husband and I did a post Valentines Day dinner at a French Restaurant in one of the many secret little hideouts in Singapore. We love discovering and trying out new places to eat in Singapore whether we are going out with our friends or just us having a romantic night out on the town.

We didn't do much on V-Day we wanted to avoid the crowd as much as possible. We ended up spending a cozy night at home with the hubby cooking a delicious Caribbean meal for us (when I say us it included our little puggy who just loves his daddy's cooking).

I mist say I am truly blessed to have this man as my valentine and I would do what ever to keep him happy.

we didn't exchange any gifts on V-Day and kept it aside for a later date, but I did get a beautiful bouquet of flowers with a big teddy bear delivered to my work place. (you would have seen this on my Instagram)

Now to the outfit, I had to make this night special and hunt through my wardrobe for fresh options. I don't buy clothes for specific occassions mind you. I had this cut-out dress from ModCloth for quite some time and wanted to wear it in a different way, something that I haven't tried before. After running through my inspiration board for some options, I picked up my favourite ZARA skinnys and kept the look minimal chic.

Oriental Blossoms!

It was a long weekend in Singapore due to Chinese New Year and I spent the majority of it plopped in front of laptop trolling a lot of retail shops online creating my wish list, sleeping on the couch, and in the middle of all this action I found just enough time to savor some grapes, crackers and cheese with a hint of moscato. On one of my not so lazy days my husband and I got off our butts to meet up with friends for dinner, in one of our favorite districts in Singapore (Arab Street). In Singapore Chinese New Year is a major holiday and it turns a usually bustling city into a ghost town, which is a double edged sword because all the restaurants are empty but is bad because most of our favorite little eateries are closed. At the end of the night we ended up searching high and low for a good cafe to fulfill our sweet tooth's, it was a bit of a struggle to find dessert, but with a bit of foot power and a lot of patience we finally settled for a bit of baklava and Ice cream.

Sex and the City

Don't we ladies love some tutu? I've been looking for a perfect tutu for a very long time until I passed by a shop at Haji Lane in Arab Street that sold tutus in champagne/ grayish silver and in this blush tone. I had to pass it up at first as the price was too steep, then one fine day I just couldn't take it anymore. I bit the bullet and asked my man to buy it for me. Things we women have to do just to get his credit card has no bounds I must say ;)

This is my second time wearing it and I do have many of my girlfriends asking me how do you pull this skirt off. My answer is very simple as seen here in a cropped stripped ASOS blouse.

When it comes to styling all I have to say is 'ladies don't think too much, just have some fun'.
