Colours of Christmas

Saturday, December 09, 2017 Simone Foster 3 Comments










Just a few more weeks before Christmas! Whilst I am seeing many of my fellow bloggers highlighting Christmas outfits and backdrops of Christmas decorations in their IG pictures, so here is an outfit post on Christmas colours particularly of red and green. 

As we will be flying out to Florida shortly to spend Christmas this year, I decided not to decorate the home seeing we won't be around to enjoy it. Instead here is a  post to inspire for your Christmas gift shopping.

This lovely vest from #LaurelBlooms could be worn as a top / dress/ or outerwear. As we are in the tropics and it is so warm over this festive season, I styled this top with black shorts under (just to maintain some form of decency)  and wore it as a dress. At my age, wearing it on its own would have been a little too risque for my liking.

May I add, this was the perfect colour combination for me to trend even more lovely jewels and arm candy from #Blueirishandicrafts. I love the unique polygon shaped pendant with the matching drop earrings that accented the Christmas colours of red and green. Keeping the parisian feel to this outfit post, I wore the pendant on a double choker necklace. 

Similar to the purple stoned cuff I styled in a previous post ( check it out here), this time I styled the thinner and curvier emerald green cuff with this look.

If you like to get some of these very reasonably priced jewellery from Blue Iris, please check out their range of products on Instagram and on their Facebook page and place your order directly with them. All sales go towards supporting the tradesmen making such lovely handmade jewellery.

Watch this space as I bring you more lovely  year end festive looks from USA shortly!

The Color Purple

Saturday, December 02, 2017 Simone Foster 8 Comments










Happy Weekend everyone! Now that I managed to get the boy back to school after being away for a week nursing a bad viral flu cum infection, I could finally squeeze some time to bring  you more beautiful Indian jewellery from Blue Iris.

This handcrafted, brass single stone cuff is so exquisite with it's coloured stone and intricate floral design. I love how this one statement piece totally brightened up my purple dress from Emilio Pucci.

I had this dress for years in my wardrobe and hardly wore it, but all it took was this beautiful jewellery piece to bring it out of the closet for me!

With blush/ pink being the rage at the moment, I paired my favourite pink bucket bag with blush suede heels to complete this look.

Start your Christmas gift shopping early with beautiful jewels and home decor pieces from Blue Iris's collection. You can view their products on their Instagram feed @blueirishandicrafts, Facebook page : www.facebook.com/handicratsindia/ or visit their newly launched Etsy store : https://www.etsy.com/sg-en/shop/BlueIrisHandicrafts

Prachi Malhotra,  the beauty behind this label runs her business on a non-profit scale simply to help build the awareness of this beautiful craft back in India and to help push sales to feed these families.

Have fun shopping!

Dress : Emilio Pucci 
Cuff : c/o Blue Iris ( enquiries welcome via FB or IG messaging)
Heels : Stradivarius ( similar here & here)
Bag : TopFeeling ( similar here)
Earrings : Lovisa 


Love,

Hello everyone and Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to all my friends especially those in America who celebrate this lovely and meaningful occasion.

Whilst many of you are getting bundled up this weekend as temperatures start to plunge ( even for my friends in Hong Kong), but I am sure the warmth of family and friends' love will certainly keep everyone nice and cosy this holiday weekend.

My son has been down with such a bad viral flu which seems to be going around in the community lots lately, that leaves me no time to work on any shots this weekend. Hence, sharing these pictures that were taken a few weeks ago and hope you enjoy it! Loving jumpsuits by the way and this cutesy piece from Topshop had me at " hello" with its broderie anglaise.

Black Lace Dress

Saturday, November 18, 2017 Simone Foster 3 Comments












A knock on the door this weekend brought me a pretty black dress from Dresslily. I had to try it on immediately and decided to style this as a year end inspiration for you for office parties and Christmas gatherings.

With it's high collar and conservative style, to stand out from the crowd ( as you know me by now - more is more!)  I decided to funk up this look with large loop fishnet stockings to give this dress a little twist.

Having watched " Say Yes To The Dress" several times, it always seems like a belt would do the trick to finish off and complete the look for those lovely bridal gowns. So taking on this cue,  I threw on this stretchable black belt with gold interlock clasp and paired it with my glitter party gold slingbacks for the completed year end office party look!

To be safe, a black clutch or gold bag would likely be the obvious choice but I could not resist adding a little pop of colour with this pretty bucket bag in blue. I love the circular wooden handle and it does also come with a long chain strap for those cocktail events where you need your hands to hold that lovely glass of champagne and munch on canapes.

Thank you to all at Dresslily for this lovely outfit and I certainly will be wearing this dress with different styling this holiday season.

Call It The Blues

Saturday, November 11, 2017 Simone Foster 4 Comments









What a rough week ! I was down with a viral flu and lost my voice. Felt sick as a dog and yet having to pull myself through the day with daily routines of houswork, dog walks and seeing to the family meals wore me out totally!

The only colour I could see was just the blues... finally as I started to feel a little better - it was time to head out the doors for a little breather and a much needed good cup of coffee!

I have been seeing so many 11.11 sale specials from various online portals that it was driving me nuts! Wanting to buy so many things but it's just the pull and gimmick of getting an item on a sale ( I bet it was not that much of a discount to be very honest) that had me scrolling site after site for great deals and even adding stuff to my cart that I don't even need - just because it was on sale. Then just at the final moment when I was about to click " checkout" I had a moment of awakening and decided to clear the cart instead! And there you go... 11.11 singles day sale, nothing in the cart and no shopping done....

And that's why they call it the blues!!

Top & Skirt: H&M ( get it here & here)
Bag : Hermes
Loafers : MANGO ( get it here & here)
Earrings : Forever 21 ( get it here)
Ring : Tiffany ( get it here)
