Merry Christmas Everyone!

A short joyful post of my Christmas outfit for Christmas Eve dinner. Recycling old favourites, mix and matching for a whole new outfit!

A warm Christmas this year Hong Kong. Off were the thick coats and jumpers and in with lighter outerwear. Love trending this old favourite lace biker style jacket. Having spent a whole day at Disneyland Hong Kong on 23 December, took this chance to style this lovely jewelry set I got as a Christmas gift from Disney!

Happy start of the week everyone!

I don't know about you but I had a horrid last week when my laptop crashed and the best part of it all, I did not do a recent backup. URGH.......Was desperately praying that all data would not be lost and had to work on my smartphone and ipad for emails etc... but you guys can imagine how frustrating that it is for me. Especially when all pictures have been uploaded and edited on my laptop!

Thank god for a kind and SMART I.T " angel" who saved my day and "Mr N." as I would like to call him -  managed to retrieve all information on my laptop for me before having to change my whole hard disk.

So here it is, my latest and long overdue post for the kind people at who saw my last post highlighting some of their items. So as I would like to put it - " christmas came early for me" and here is one of the goodies they kindly extended to me for my effort. If you have not read my previous post on them, here it is again ( click here).

The full button down front allows the option of styling this dress as an outerwear for a different look. Although the dress came with a red faux leather belt, however I decided to pair it with my own red and blue elastic belt to cinch in the waist a little better. I do love the cut and the way the dress falls nicely around the waist, though it was a little snug around the upper arms and chest.

I would best advise you to consider 2 sizes up if you are getting this dress simply as it may not totally be true to size. Given I was sent an XL size for this dress when I am usually a regular L size girl and yet finding it a tad snug around the chest.

Was hoping to channel the Duchess of Cambridge " Kate Middleton" with this outfit. I love how she wears those lovely longer coats and matching dresses in many of her engagements. Not forgetting, florals are an IN trend this winter as well so feel free to be as loud as you can with those prints.

Have a great time shopping for the last weeks before Christmas !!

Do it like Victoria :: Grey & White

Oooh..... Finally the cooler weather is coming our way here in Hong Kong.

Chanced upon an online store... yes, again.... ( Look! This month there are lots of shopping to be done and sales happening everywhere so don't blame me for looking....) and saw this dress which looked somewhat similar like the one Victoria Beckham had in her collection a couple of years back.

Naturally it isn't an exact replica but the peek-a-boo white pleating layer at the bottom was quite the catcher for me. To be honest, the dress arrived but was certainly disappointed as it did not look like the pictures put up on the online store and also the ends were a little fraying ( nothing a lil snipping won't help anyways).

I have learnt this lesson many a times with online stores, its always a touch-n-go situation seeing they often post pictures which even isn't of the actual product and secondly the material used can sometimes be quite different from what it is described to be. Let alone the cutting of the dress. But of course, when the pictures look that good, and the price is somewhat reasonable, one tends to always forget past lessons learnt and get caught in the same situation over and over again. Nonetheless,since it's in my hands now, I might as well make something good out of it so here's the look for you.

So, just for your info, this was the grey Victoria Beckham Dress which caught my fancy ( as seen on Cameron Diaz) and the picture below was the picture posted of the dress when I bought it online.

And this was the picture of the item I had been drawn to purchase from.

Have a great weekend ahead and hope all is going well for your holiday preparations!
