I had the opportunity to attend Singapore Fashion Week this year and I was super excited. I’ve only experienced Fashion Week in NYC so I was curious to what the vibe was going to be like in Singapore. During my stay I was able to attend Blue Print, a trade show for East West Exchange in Asia. Emerging designers and established designers are allowed to showcase their current pieces for the Asian market in one big stop. They had designers from Korea, Hong Kong and Europe, to name a few, displaying beautiful pieces of jewelry to eccentric hats to wear to high tea. This is a great place for store owners and on-line entrepreneurs to find great new designers and new items for their inventory. I loved the vibe of the trade show filled with buyers, fashionistas and press who were all on the go checking out what the designers had in store for them.

Pierre Balmain had a super hero t-shirt so I had to pick it up from Shopbop. I love t-shirts and this was a great find since it’s perfect for the hot weather in Malaysia. I’ve always been a fan of Pierre Balmain for it’s street edge and comfortable look. It was a perfect t-shirt to pair with my Zara faux leather skirt that I picked up this spring. Let me just tell you it was scorching hot that day and I felt as though I was literally melting in the middle of KLCC. Once we were outside I knew I had to go back inside KLCC where it’s always super cold from the full blast AC’s. But the cold air feels refreshing when it’s scorching hot outside. But after a few minutes in the AC, it starts to get chilly. Hence why it’s always smart to bring a pullover for the cold frigid air. It’s a constant battle of the climate from frigid ac to scorching hot weather here.

I need coffee in my life, so during the weekend I always try to scour places in Malaysia that has great coffee. It was a hot scorching day in Malaysia and I needed my caffeine fix and as you can tell I’m quite enjoying my iced Americano. I was content for the day now that I had my fix and it was time for me to enjoy the sunny warm weather that Malaysia has to offer. It’s a far cry from the current weather in Malaysia, which is hazey due to the old farming techniques of burning the fields in Indonesia. If only I was able to rewind back to this day where I was able to enjoy the bright sun and crystal blue sky. Hence why my outfit is basically blue on blue as well as my YSL jewelry of Turquoise blue to normal blue.

So my favorite staple piece is anything that is black. When the hubby informed me that we had to attend a Christmas Party at his co-worker’s place I wore what I normally wear. Anything black!!!! I decided that I needed to add a hint of color to the outfit since it was a festive party and not a funeral so I used my jewelry and shoes to add some contrast. I’ve tried to add colors to my wardrobe but it’s a hard habit to kick.

I love wearing t-shirts, especially if they’re soft and comfy. I’m a sucker for comfy wear, but who isn’t? However, since moving to Malaysia I’ve been more casual then I was before. It might be the constant warm weather and also just being lazy since I’m usually cooped up at home. I fell in love with this t-shirt when I found it out at my friend’s store Moon Voyage. If by any chance you’re in Chicago, this definitely is a place to stop by for great finds. I love this t-shirt because not only can I wear it as a dress but I could pair it with shorts/pants. I love anything that is versatile.
I have to remind myself to wear my sneakers more often. The only problem with white sneakers is that I just don’t want them to get dirty. If anyone knows me, I’m the biggest clutz so there’s a 100% chance they will somehow eventually get ruined. I was so happy when I got my hands on the Jeremy Scott Adidas Sneakers. I love some of his pieces so these kicks were a nice piece to add to my Jeremy Scott collection. These sneakers remind me of my high school days when my friends and I would wear Adidas sneakers with baggy pants, listening to hip hop and hanging out at the mall. Don’t these sneakers remind you of the 80’s era of the RUN DMC time? I love it!!! *haha* I love that I could pair the sneakers up with my dress and be comfy while heading out to lunch.

Hello from Singapore!!! Hubby had a business trip to Singapore so I decided to tag along. Why not since hotel was free, airfare was fairly cheap and I wanted to see my new home in a few months. I immediately fell in love with Singapore as we drove from the airport to Marina Bay because it reminded me of driving on Lake Shore drive in Chicago. Also, I really liked how clean everything was, their convenient public transportation and overall safe feeling. When hubby was finally free from his busy schedule we ventured out to Orchard Road to do a little window shopping. Orchard Road was decorated with Christmas trees and lights, which still feels very strange to me since it’s over 90 degrees outside. It’s definitely an adjustment for me to walk outside with sandals and a tank top while all the windows displays are adorned with Christmas decorations. The Chicago girl in me is so used to freezing temperatures, snow on the ground, winter jackets and moon boots.
