Hello everyone,

I know I don't usually post during the week but seeing that Friday is Valentine's Day and many of you may still be wondering what to wear or needing some inspirations, here is one more to add to your list trending some gift ideas for you guys to gift your beloved.

Red is the colour of luck to the Chinese but also the colour of love. So this Valentine's Day, I have pulled out something from my current closet ( no special shopping in line with keeping fashion sustainable). If Kate Middleton can recycle her outfits in the public eye, why not me?

This ruffle trim strapless dress is perfect for date night. Of course with a gift of " bling" it always helps to pump up the volume to the dress ( hint... hint...) and I especially love this bracelet from APM Monaco. Their pieces are unique in design and certainly very pretty to style any evening wear with.

I am sure you guys would realise by now my love for shoes from The Tui Collection. In all honesty, when I purchased my first pair, the leather was still stiff and so had cut me round the ankle but after the second wear and the leather softens and moulds to one's foot, it is the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned. Therefore my love for this brand certainly grew and grew.

Likewise, you would have noticed me styling this vintage upcycled clutch on my Instagram feed several times and rightfully so, because this clutch is so versatile and with a long strap that could be attached, it allows one to wear it up or down with any outfit. I chose to pair this dress with this clutch for its geometric pattern and the accent of the red on the bag. The kiss lock with it's " diamond" clasp adds that touch of elegance to the bag. You will certainly see me style more outfits with this bag.

Being Valentine's Day, I would like to showcase some diamond jewellery pieces not only for styling one's evening outfits but also again... a gentle hint to our love ones for pressies ideas!! This contemporary styled pendant in mixed coloured diamonds keeps the look fluid with it's soft linear design and the leaf shaped ring adds a little texture too. These pieces are from Taka Jewellery here in Singapore but I am sure you can find similar styles in other jewellery shops online or around the world. If you are based in Singapore, do pay them a visit for their latest collection of contemporary styled rings and pendants.

I hope you enjoyed this look and do share with me how you will be spending Valentine's Day.

Simone xoxo
