Horsing Around : Colour Block Top with Statement Necklace

Hi everyone.

Fall is finally here ! So decided to throw on a jacket to what would be a typical Summer outfit for the cooler mornings. Here's my outfit for the day for a typical school run. The look today was very much a designer inspired look - from  my Gucci inspired silk crepe top to my Hermes inspired CDC cuff.

As you would have gathered by now, statement necklaces and I are like hand in glove. I enjoy styling an otherwise simple outfit with a statement piece(s) for that tailored look. Chanced upon this whimsical necklace piece which I fell in love with immediately for its quirkiness.







Being active on Instagram, I recently came across a few statement jewelry online shops which I would certainly be looking at purchasing pieces from them to add to my collection. In the words of another fashion blogger - " Pretty Arm Candy is half of your outfit". Well in my case, it's " Statement Jewelry is half of my outfit!" Anyways, here's some links for your possible consideration when you next feel that pinch to get a statement piece online.

Designed in Hong Kong : Geometric Design Crop Top & 3D Doggie Bag

It's the weekend again and here's something cute for a follow up on my last post of " Fun & Quirky Bags SS 2015".


Was out shopping recently in Causeway Bay ( main shopping hub of Hong Kong) before meeting the girls for lunch and came across this cute 3D bag which is made of 100%  eco-friendly rubber material by Adamo HK. Priding themselves in unique designs, high quality and meticulous workmanship for solely 3D products created strictly in Hong Kong, I was quite amused by the range of styles and designs they had available for my picking. Styles ranging from Casual, Trendy, Shoulder and Crystal series, it would seriously tickle your fancy.

Having fallen in love with Animal 3D bags particularly those by Anteprima in recent years, and being a lover of dogs in particular, I gravitated immediately to the poodle face simply because it was beckoning me to pick it up and give it a smooch!!

Classy box packaging with options of both short and long chain link straps all add to the elegance and versatility of this product. Perfect option for a gift.

Since crop tops are still the rage here,  I decided to pair this newly purchased bag with another Hong Kong design fashion label " Fait A Main Paris" of which many of their designs are now being sold widely in Europe, Australia, UK, Japan, China, Philippines etc. 




I particularly love the low-hi front and back of this crop top and also the weaved chain/ ribbon link collar which adds to the sophistication and uniqueness of this top. The large geometric fabric pattern on the front was certainly the selling point of this top.

So, I hope you enjoy checking out these two Hong Kong labels and do watch this space for my next post on Street Styles of New York and London Fashion Week SS 2015.

Fashion Week's Fun and Quirky Bags for S/S 2015

Hi everyone,

Following the recent New York and London Fashion Week shows for Spring/ Summer 2015, I can't help but be fascinated with the quirky and fun bags I've seen featured on the runway.

As we know the Sporty look is trending for Fall 2014 e.g Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu etc therefore taking this trend into Spring/ Summer 2015 particularly in accessories / bags, seems to be the call of a few designers.

1. Playful

Anya Hindmarch
Vivienne Westwood

Sophia Webster

2. Bucket Style

DKNY
3.1 Philip Lim
Louis Vuitton

3. Geometric Shape

Herve Leger by Max Azria

4. Fun 

Kate Spade New York

Libertine

5. Fringe

Jeremy Scott
Proenza Schouler
Louis Vuitton

6. Bag Pack / Sporty

Marc Jacobs
Alexander Wang
Burberry / Marc Jacobs
Raeburn
Versus
Jeremy Scott
Some of these bags easily blend two trends together e.g Fringe & Backpack ( Jeremy Scott), or Geometric and Playful ( J JS Lee).

Do watch this space as I will be doing a post next on my very own made in Hong Kong, environmentally friendly - quirky and playful bag to trend for SS 2015.

Have Fun,
Simone xoxo

Crimson Rose : Floral Skater Skirt and Crimson Top

A cheery Monday to you all!

You would have realised the minor changes I was tweaking to my blog over the weekend. Decided to add a little more " colour" ( so to speak!) to make it more interesting. What do you think?

Getting new followers on IG and FB over the weekend and also recently discovered new fashion bloggers I personally would be following, so I hope to be inspired by them and bring you more exciting posts in the near future.

Keeping covered whilst the sun blazes on for the start of the week.







Have a great week ahead and do stay tuned for my take on New York's Fashion Week S/S 2015 trends.
