Hi Everyone,

I have been working on a new direction with all my collaborations that have come into play in recent months over Instagram and so I did not have the time to get on my blog in the last week or so. But here I am again and I have not forgotten you guys who wait patiently each week to catch my posts over the weekends.

So here is this gorgeous dress aptly named "Mykonos"that is handprinted.  Having a soft spot for nice, soft and beathable materials, and having experienced a lack of nice natural fabrics where most handprinted ones are mainly batik style, Marie ( owner and designer) of Acquabonita started to painstakingly source and curate fabrics handprinted by local artisans and that is how Acquabonita was born.

I personally am drifting away from higher hemlines as I get older, however this dress is so stunning with its bright pink colour and the prints which truly does remind me of those pictures I see on Instagram all the time of people vacationing in Mykonos, Greece in similar resort wear styles. So I decided to pair it casual with gold sandals and clutch and let's always go full on with the pairings, so I added a  gorgeous gold plated necklace, vintage chain link belt and a statement cuff to sum it all up! Ultimate resort wear style!

Do check out Acquabonita's website for their full range of products including earrings, bags and necklaces. I often use my summer dresses as transitional season pieces throwing on a vest or an outerwear over my summer dresses and pair it with booties or even knee length boots to take you from Summer to Fall. So it's definitely still an option for those of you heading into Fall to still grab this cool and comfy dress.

Hope you enjoyed this post and do follow me on Instagram where you can watch me in action on my IGTV Videos and learn about this new direction I am taking.

Love,
Simone xoxo

Its A Garden City :: Orchid Danglers + Full Maxi Dress

Wednesday, August 12, 2020 Simone - Your Style Architect 6 Comments

 













Dress : Konacoco by Erika Pena ( available here & here)
Earrings : House Of Rajput ( available here)
Belt : vintage ( similar here & creative option here)
Shoes : ASOS ( sold out) ( similar here & here)

Hey everyone,

I must apologise for those of you who have been waiting for my post over a week. It has just been such a hectic week with giveaways and collaborations which I had rolled out with some brand partners over Instagram. I hope if you have been following me on IG that you have participated in these giveaways. 

Well, here in Singapore, we had just celebrated our nation's 55th birthday and if you do not know yet, our national flower is the Vanda Miss Joaqhim - a gorgeous orchid! So in line with this month's National Day celebrations, I bring to you today this stunning pair of Orchid Danglers from one of my favourite statement jewellery brands - the House Of Rajput. The vibrant colour mix of blue and orange is just gorgeous against the blush hues of this flowing, full skirted and all time favourite Erika Peña dress.
Funny enough I found this headscarf which belonged to my mother in law and she had it for years ( truly vintage) and it paired perfectly for this look to cinch in my waist with. And to finish the look, this pair of V front slingback heels from ASOS which unfortunately is already sold out but there are so variations of this style which I am sure you can mix and match with to style this look.

Leaving you for now - I hope you like this outfit and here's to a Happy National Day month to ALL my Singaporean friends and followers!

Don't forget to check out my IG profile and stories for all other offers for this month!

Love,
Simone xoxo

Rock Chic Style

Sunday, July 26, 2020 Simone - Your Style Architect 4 Comments
















Hi everyone,

How has your weekend been treating you so far?

Feeling a rock chic vibe today, so bringing you this casual outfit that is so cool and comfy but yet with a twist with crystal statement jewellery from House of Rajput. I do love a good pair of statement earrings which has versatility. By that, I mean that I can easily wear it with a casual outfit ( in this case -  you can't get more casual than a pair of jeans) but yet, I can also style the earrings with an evening outfit. These Kira Hoop earrings from House of Rajput is one such earring that fits the bill. I love how it is edgy in its own right and therefore is able to bring an outfit together.

Many of you perhaps are not as comfortable with brooches as it is a piece of jewellery that not many people would style with their wardrobes unless with an evening outfit or a work suit. This Sol brooch also from House of Rajput is particularly unique because it comes in a 2 part design. Therefore giving it some texture and flow rather than a solid brooch which most of us are use to. I tried to play around with the brooch to this casual outfit by pinning it onto my cap or option 2, onto my jeans - a quirky yet unique way to make a statement. For those of you who loves to trend turbans or perhaps you do wear a headscarf, this brooch is also the perfect accessory to dress up your outfit.

Threw on this chic cotton kimono for some pattern and colour variation to this pairing and we got ourselves a rock chic loo, ready to head out the door. Of course let us not forget that these handwoven and crafted boots from The Tui Collection says it all to complete the outfit.

What do you think?

Jeans : MANGO 
Cap : Anko

Outfit : Simone Irani ( on sale) ( Available here)
Shoes : The Tui Collection ( on sale) ( Available here)
Rings : Kafika Jewellery / Lovisa ( available heresimilar here)
Earrings : Lustre Jewellery ( available here)

Hi everyone,

Sorry I was just so boiled down with projects last week and did not get a chance to publish my post. So this week in line with all the sales that are happening online and in the stores in Singapore - I thought I would share this gorgeous outfit with you, of which the whole outfit is totally ON SALE now.

I love how cool and comfortable this Simone Irani Pharaoh Tunic set is and perfect for Summer yet looking so eclectic! Of course I am wearing pants under and so this gives me that added comfort to run around in it. Since it has such a busy print, I kept my jewellery subtle and minimal with that slight tribal feel to it. Simone Irani carries a gorgeous range of outfits that spells luxurious resort chic. Since  we are unable to style these lovely pieces out on a holiday in the near future - who says one can't wear it out and about in the city during Summer? They do ship internationally and for full price items - please feel free to use my special code of " FOSTER10 " to enjoy a 10% off.

Bringing out the burgundy hues of this outfit, I paired it with one of my favourite sandals from The Tui Collection ( who also ships internationally). They are a bespoke brand with such stunning pieces all handmade and in leather. Therefore, who can resist the fact that they are having an extremely fantastic SALE going on right now online. So do check them out now to grab a bespoke pair in your size! Don't forget to also check out their leather accessories and jewellery pieces which are divine!

I hope you enjoyed this look and happy shopping these great deals now!

Love,
Simone xoxo

Summer Floral Printed Dress

Sunday, July 05, 2020 Simone - Your Style Architect 2 Comments













Earrings : Esme Crystal / House of Rajput ( available here)


Hi everyone,

As many of our countries are slowly opening up, this is the time when we can get dressed up again and head outdoors. I do love maxi dresses a lot and when the owner of Linen & More approached me to style this dress - I was extremely delighted.

The silkiness of the material makes it such a comfy dress to style during the heat of summer. Now when comes to jewellery pairing, most people would not dare to think of pairing statement jewellery with a printed dress but as many of you know me - more is more - and so this stunning pair of Kira Hoop Earrings from Esme Crystals which is available from House Of Rajput, is the perfect pair of earrings to style with this dress. Its edgy design yet classy design with the peppering of crystals brings out both the femininity of the dress as well as yet add that touch of elegance to this classic summer dress.

Simple yet elegant sandals from Bayou Soles completes the look and the pairing with a statement bucket bag makes this look standout from the crowd. However, like the angel that dresses the Christmas Tree, I had to bring out this edgy belt that I got from my favourite vintage store  - A Vintage Tale to complete this total look.

Love,
Simone xoxo

Hey everyone,

It's Father's Day weekend and I am sure with Phase 2 now reopened in Singapore, many of you would have taken the opportunity to go dine out and have a little mini celebration. A much deserved family bonding time over good food and drinks this weekend. Remember stay cautious, wear your mask and keep your distance. 

I had posted this look on Instagram earlier on in the week and felt it should be reposted here with my full photo shoot shots highlighting and reemphasising how grateful we are of this new breakthrough with the new steroid and possibly antibody vaccine they are hoping to roll out once the data is collected and more trials done but light at the end of the tunnel for sure.

I chose to do another editorial style shoot in the comfort of my own home ( and also a safer option than heading out when all are running out and about). Played with a newspaper background and literally "broke through" to create this pictorial. I love the comfort of this rock chic look and I think it exudes some a "strong" woman / boss babe vibe to it. So went more edgy with the darker lip shade from Amplio Beauty and upcycled this old vest with a gorgeous patch from Just Gayas ( please do DM her on Instagram for prices and pattern options as it is not listed on her site yet). This look was finished off with a pair of stunning earrings from one of their latest collection from Shop Lustre and bangles ( a mix of 2 sets) from Stones That Rock. You may wish to note that they are having a storewide sale ( 25% off) all their jewellery online now till 26 June 2020, and you may also be gifted a free bracelet with your purchase. 


Completing this rock chic look are these buttery soft, handcrafted, curated pair of leather booties which I have worn countless of times regardless of climate and season. Its definitely an investment footwear to own. For my followers, The Tui Collection is offering a 25% off these Booties - use code " Booties25" to upon checkout for this fabulous deal!!


Hope you enjoyed this post and do note many of these brands do ship internationally, with many also offering free shipping within Singapore ( local shipping). Do pay them a visit and support them if you can.

Love,
Simone xoxo
