Colorful Resolutions

So have your 2015 resolutions kicked in yet? Mine did today – and that is to wear color.

I had a sneaky suspicion that wasnt ever going to be a successful thing to do from the moment the thought of it entered my head…but try I must!

What do you think? 😂❤️

Plaid shirt days

This is easily, quite frankly, hands down my favorite casual style. This is probably what you would find me wearing almost every weekend. Its so easy and comfort ranks very high on my list.

I love a good novelty tshirt, and Kenzo makes some of the best ones, in fact I have 4 of these tshirts in different colors (hoarder alert!).

What I love best is just throwing on a plaid shirt over it. Its my preferred “jacket” if you may. Its casual, its functional (if it gets cold) (or if it gets too humid you tie it around your waist – that look is properly legit now) and well, it just looks more…cool than just wearing a tshirt. I’ve always been a person that feels thoroughly incomplete just wearing a tshirt and jeans. Somewhere in my heart of hearts it just felt… wrong. I needed something more…You know, I need the 💪 in my outfits! I love that it sort of emphasises the motif and the color of your tshirt even more than when you wear it on its own.

Its a tricky business choosing plaid shirts and thats part of the reason I dont have that many yet. Theres always the danger of looking a little too lumberjacky or too country. I think the trick is in the shades of color and the pattern of the squares on it..i think!

I hope everyones having a great Christmas with your loved ones! Are we ready for 2015? 😁✌️

Cape Hero

Let me just start off by saying this:

I love capes.
Like I have a serious love affair with capes.

I think it goes back to when I was a little girl and my standard roleplay back then had always involved a cape or a cloak of some kind. I would go to the mall with my cape, to the supermarket and even when I went to sleep, that thing had my back. (how’s my pun?)
Batman, superman, wonderwoman, you can say it was all too impressionable.

Luckily for me, fashion loves capes. Childsplay for me transformed into a fashionable escape – capes inject a sense of drama in an outfit and i just love that. I always require the 💪 in my outfits, that little touch that makes it my personal style.

So when I came across this dark blue “short sleeved” cape, you can guess how excited I became. My mind and quite possibly my mouth was chanting in unison: Add to cart, add to cart 😄

The weather’s been layer-friendly lately in Singapore. Stay tuned for more of me and my capes! Meanwhile, find me on instagram @justabitcliche ✌️

Ensambl – The fashionable mobile app

Imagine this:

You’re all packed for New York for the week, you have planned what to wear for places you’re going to. All white ensemble and a pair of 5-inch stilettos that you would probably break-up with in approximately 12 hours.
And while you trusted the weather forecasters promising you great days ahead, the next thing you know you’re looking out of your hotel window wondering how you’re going to be battling frosty winds and 4 inches of snow.

Imagine this:

It’s summer in Melbourne. You’re ready for the convertible drive along Great Ocean Road and you have 5 great summer looks – shorts, dresses, mini dresses, denim cutoffs, mini skirts. But it’s only day one and you’re missing some layers of clothing and jackets you didn’t think you would need at all….

Ha! We’ve all been there, and for some of us we’re always there. Stuck with a suitcase full of all these amazing outfits but you can’t wear them because the weather gods decided to make it hard for you. Sitting in a puddle of clothes on the floor in despair. Yes, we all have been there.

But, something great is brewing.
We’re happy to introduce a new and refreshing mobile application – Ensambl.

Ensambl is a mobile app that curates outfits for inspiration and displays them according to the weather. (We’re thinking ‘genius’!) The inspiration behind Ensambl was when New York had a major snow storm last year that left founder Dalia Strum, unprepared and at a loss for outfits to wear.  Two hours later, 30 pages deep on Google and 15 fashion sites later, searching for outfit inspiration, Dalia started thinking about the fact that there needs to be an easier way of finding looks to browse through and save! 

And we couldn’t agree more.

 

Download the Ensambl app for free and spread the word! Here is how you can navigate the app:

  • You can change the state by clicking on the weather icons in the upper left corner
  • Save favorite images by swiping right (or clicking the heart below)  
  • Discard images by swiping left (or clicking the X icon below)
  • Tap on any images for more info
  • Touch the heart in the upper right corner to browse through your favorites
