swooshing it!

As I told you recently, I am on the market for a new pair of sneakers to replace my ever-reliable Chucks. I was leaning towards picking up a new pair of Nike's this time because I wanted a pair that is street-perfect, but can also double as my dance shoes for Zumba and BodyJam. 

Though I originally wanted the Waffles Cortez model - the yellow one makes me drool! But couldn't find this model anymore. I did find a perfect replacement!

Meet my brand new pair of kicks. I love the understated gray with a the silver swoosh. Perfect with colorful skinny jeans or casual pencil skirts.

fashion girl, emanuelle alt

"Effortlessly chic" is the very definition of Emanuelle Alt's style - skinny jeans and sky-high heels lend as foundation for the killer jacket/blazer. She's so punk-rock! 

This is my favorite photo of her, taken with her equally chic little girl, Francoise.

I love that oversized jacket and everything about this look! Since we don't have Winter here in Singapore, we can appropriate this look by swapping the wool blazer with an oversized vest and the over-the-knee boots with killer stillettos.

So I've been on the market for sneakers for awhile since my only pair of Chucks are now begging for retirement. I was thinking of replacing with another pair - a white one this time. 

Because Chucks are LOVE!

But then again, I'm seeing a whole lot of awesome Nikes lately and I'm just so in love. 

I mean check out The Man Repeller's Nike Free's. Nike Free's are comfy, slim and they are NEON!

But these are what I'm really craving for! Waffle Cortez Running Shoes. It's got that old-school vibe, perfect for street wear, can double for the gym and most of all would look perfect mixed in with skinny jeans and or pencil skirts! I hope I find these in Singapore.

Style - In Real Life turns 1

Can't believe it's been a year since I started this little side-project. I've been enjoying putting together all the looks and hope that my friends who follow this blog are enjoying the outfits and getting to know a little bit more about me with each post. 

Here's to more years to come!

Found these old pictures while I was clearing out my files. Realized I haven't shared this on the blog yet. Taken just before the holidays last year and one of those uncharacteristically cold day in Singapore.

Bought this Audrey Hepburn t-shirt dress in Chinatown while I was playing tour guide to Cuz and her hubby.

Layered with my leather vest. I love the different dimensions created here, with the asymmetrical bottom of the tee and the vest.

I long for colder days now. It's been so hot in Singapore lately! I miss wearing my leather vest.

I was wearing: Audrey Hepburn t-shirt from Chinatown, Cotton On shorts, H&M leather gilet, lace-up booties from Zara.

just in: september

Sharing some new items I bought the past month. I should state here though that this should be it for awhile - I should put a stop to all these shopping and little treats to self as the holidays are drawing near and I must save! 

H&M neon tee. I love the relaxed fit and the eye-catching color! Perfect for dressing up a pair of bell-bottoms or dressing down a pencil skirt.

Sling bag from Zara. The moment I saw this, it was love at first sight. It's soft leather and all black style reminds me of my dream bag - the Alexander Wang Rocco bag. But with a hefty price tag that comes that, this similar one is a great alternative.  

Graphic tee from Pull & Bear. Never underestimate the power of a graphic tee. This simple tee looks great with casual outfits - paired with denim shorts, for example or acid wash skinny jeans. But my favorite is dressing it up - I've got a pair of pencil skirt in mind for this. 

Soft denim shorts from Bossini. I must admit, I'd never thought I'd be ever shopping at Bossini. I'm not a big fan of this brand, but my Mom is. I spotted this while she was shopping and I just fell for it. It reminds me of a very similar pair I saw at Zara Spring/Summer 2011. Instead of a casual look, I'm looking forward to pairing this with high heels and button downs.
