Long Vest – the new basic

This coming weekend let me encourage you to get acquainted to the new basic – the long vest. I know, they have been around for quite some time now, but do you have it in your closet? Yes same with you, I ignored this piece until lately, and after getting a hold of my first long vest, I can’t seem to shop wearing it. Not yet convinced?  Well let me highlight some good reasons why you should keep this item a staple to your wardrobe.

1.  Layering – there’s this saying “when styling, always add a third piece”, I know it can be a hat, scarf or a jacket, but when you’re in a weather that’s in the middle of hot and sometimes cold, you want your third piece to be functional. In Singapore where I am currently staying, it often rains in the afternoon, so this long vest helps to keep me warm in the office and during my commute back home.

2. A good cover up – hesitating to wear that crop top, now you can! Crop tops are a big hit, it even made it to becoming a wedding gown style. If you’re too timid to wear that belly button showing top, or a very sexy plunging satin dress, then you have the long vest to the rescue.

3. A good alternative – if you’ve grown tired of your usual office suit or blazer, here’s an alternative. It also has the clean polished and chic look finish to it.

4. Drama – I usually stay clear of drama in my life but would not say no to add drama into my outfit style. In this case the longer and bolder choice of colour the better.  Take note for those who are vertically challenged, a floor length vest can help to elongate your frame. I'm thinking of getting a red floor length one on may next mall visit. 

 Still in doubt, take a cue from these famous fashionistas!

Fabulous mid-week my loves!


Get the look, here's my suggestions where you can get it:
H&M now on sale $20
MDS ow on sale $19.17
Scotty Vest in camel

Zalora (SG) now $29.90

Vacation Diary: 8-12 September

Once in a while (or maybe more often if you can afford) we need a long vacation, and of course what a better and more fun way to do it is spend it with your family and good friend. If you’ve been wondering why I was MIA this past week, it’s because I spent time vacationing and traveling. Though I have been already in most of the places we went, it’s always good to be back to a place that you had a great experience, and play their tourist guide on this round of visit. I won’t write away the experience but just let the photos tell you how we spent our five days vacay. Enjoy!

Day 1 - Universal Studios

USS is our 1st day pick, better visit it on a weekday to
avoid long queue

Oh Marilyn! you're so pretty.
How can I not take a pic of this rad ride.
I didn't sit there for a pic, I was actually resting 
A Buffet is what we need, after a fun filled day at USS.
Korean Buffet for Dinner.
Day 2 - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Early Birds, arriving @ 7am, Batu Caves
Lepaq lepaq is famous for its cloud coffee
Big "Daddy" Breakfast, for heavy eaters

We opted to go to KL Tower, its higher
than the Petronas
I definitely think this is the highlight of
our KL tour, Colleen is so brave!

The beautiful Petronas Tower

Day 3-4 - The City

Getting ready to eat crab, Makansutra
Just because,  Sweetspot

We have the MBS Deck to ourselves
Sky on 57, Marina Bay Sands
I have to make them try Bingki!

Day 5, was scheduled for buying
I don't show photos of my family here, its the first. I hope I didn't bore you. I was definitely charged after this vacation, my heart is filled with added memories and  so much appreciation. How was your long weekend, I hope it was spent with love ones too!
