Classic Red.

Outfit details: Hat (H&M) // Earrings (Lovisa) // Top & Skirt (New Look) // Heels (Everbest) // Handbag // Toscano 

Happy Lunar New Year folks~

It's the season that you get to indulge in tidbits and have a great feast and catch up with your family & friends, among all there's also the unavoidable distant relatives who would shoot you a couple of awkward questions.
This year, I had two relatives who wished for me to get a boyfriend soon. Haha. Thanks but I just laughed it off like I always did.

Comparing to previous year, I've been so complacent in putting together outfits for this occasion. Perhaps I'm just wasn't feeling it. Funny how I recalled saving some new pieces from my past shopping trip but it ended up not being good enough and my shipment from ASOS couldn't arrive on time. I ended up frantically hunting for new clothes a week before the day.

For all of my outfits, I went for dark hues with a pop of color. Decked in red blouse and a striped midi skirt. Accessorized with a fedora hat, dainty handbag, a couple of my go-to bangles and a pair of statement earrings and I completed my look with a classic red lip.

I'm not sure how many people actually has a red top in their closet but after having this piece I am seriously considering adding more red tones into mine. Mainly because I thought that the colour red
makes it appropriate for joyous occasion, complements my skintone and that it looks fabulous in photos. Well, if it makes you look good, it sure is a staple and a must-have in your closet!

Oh and by the way, I got featured on NewLook Singapore's instagram page~ Once again, thank you NewLook Singapore for the feature!

With much love,
Clarie C.

The thing about returning from a trip is that I can't wait to get away on another one. That is if only travelling is inexpensive or even better, free. Pretty sure that I'm not the only one who thinks this way. The purpose for this trip to Koh Samui is to unwind and escape from the bustling city life, that was why our choice of the villa has to be located up the hills, up and distant from the crowd. Well for the basics, unwinding for me was to have guilt-free and 'alarm-clock-less' sleep. While doing that, I happened to break my diet by engorge myself in yummy street food & seafood.  Shopping was done either in  BigC or Tesco for groceries and fruits!
All we did was to cook and have Suits marathon and followed by a dip in the pool.
Even though I came back with fresh mozzie bites on both my legs, I definitely missed the place when I looked back at the photos.

The part of me that has OCD secretly love seeing everything arranged neatly.

There are probably more photos and the rest are on my Facebook album. Feel free to pop by if you wanna see more.

Here's a preview on my usual posts on VSCO grid, lesser OOTD photos & selfies but more of in-the-moment capture. I started using the VSCO grid because I had photos that I thought were good enough to post, however I couldn't think of a caption fitting for the picture. So I just gave up on the idea of posting it on Instagram altogether. But with VSCO grid, I guess it is okay to go caption-less, which makes it perfect for people like me who get stucked at coming up with witty and interesting captions before finally posting it. Also, there is this unspoken rule for Instagram that is to not flood your friends' feed. Because I queue my posts so often, most of the time I just forgot about it. Now, I'd feel less guilty about flooding other people's feed.

I am in a complete mess right now. I know I wouldn't be able to sleep and watching Roommate wouldn't make myself feel any better. Never have I felt myself drowning in a whirlpool of emotions.

Anger. Guillt. Fear. 

Funny how I was still comforting and listening to Perry talking about her guilty situation and then owning up to it. Hours later it was my turn to go through what she felt. This sucks.
The first thing I'd do tommorow morning is to try and salvage the situation and to hope to make things right again.

And no, nobody was harmed except a fine piece of Victorian styled furniture was stained by a cup of coffee. Not any cup of coffee but my unfinished Starbucks coffee. ):

Twenty Fifteen

Started the new year with Big Bang so I guess the rest of the year would be bang for me! Haven't gotten the time to write my thoughts for closing year 2014 and we're already at page 6 of 365. 
Have a great new year everyone!

Lights Go On Again.

It's a little late to wish you a Merry Christmas, but I could be on time for New Year wishes. So there, Happy New Year guys!
Have been bumming around on Christmas day not because I want to but because I can! Had been so sleep deprived lately and all I want to do is to sleep all day. The weather these days make it perfect for hibernation. Haha well, you could say that I'm great in bed.

For the month of December I've been busy prepping gifts and hand-written cards for my lovely friends who took time to meet me for the month. I'm always so fortunate to be on the receiving end and I guess it's nice to be giving in this joyous occasion.

I've owned so many skirts but this has got to be the first pencil skirt that I ever bought. Pencil skirts might be tricky (you need to be extra elegant when you walk or sit) but it's flattering on most body types as it accenturate curves. I would consider the pencil skirt a basic formal piece but I decide to dress it down by throwing on a scoop back basic black tee and then pair it with my trustee pair of converse.
