Fly Little Blue Bird, Fly!

Monday, December 18, 2017 Simone - Your Style Architect 6 Comments

Hello everyone, from sunny Florida!

After almost 30 hrs travelling door-to-door and after 3 flight changes, we finally arrived and am slowly adjusting our body clocks. As much as I love travelling to the States and of course being the festive season to see family, however I seriously hate having to overcome jetlag. It's been 5 days now and I am still walking around the house at 3am and feeling ready for bed by 5pm.

I was seriously hoping to start styling warmer and thicker clothing whilst out in Florida, but the weather amazingly is so warm during the day, I might as well be back in Asia. Am waiting for a cold front to hit perhaps sometime next week, so I can style some year end warmer outfits for you.

If you know me well enough, I love bling and so this little blue glitter bird called out to me as soon as I laid my eyes on this winter style chequered shirt. Found this clutch purse in  my mother-in-law's closet and it matched perfectly with my burgundy boots.

Enjoy your last weekend before Christmas shopping some amazing deals and watch this space for more holiday outfits before the year is up.

Colours of Christmas

Saturday, December 09, 2017 Simone - Your Style Architect 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

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!

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.

Jumpsuit :  Topshop ( sold out)( similar here & here)
Bag :  Chloe
Earrings : Lovisa (sold out) ( similar here & here )
Shoes : Nine West ( similar here & here)
