Hi everyone,

It's been a busy few weeks for me prepping and trying to get as much of my Christmas preparation done so I can take a little time off from work for the family. This year has indeed been such a crazy year with all that's happened and is still happening. Many of us have missed seeing our love ones around the globe whilst some of us have even lost our love ones without even saying goodbye or seeing for one last time. 

As a Catholic, to me Christmas is extra meaningful besides all the commercial aspects of it - but that it is to bring Faith, Hope and Joy as well as Love and Peace to all that we know that on this day, we have hope for what is to come. The giving of gifts is all about love and happiness and spreading joy - and that as Christians is what we need to do but on a less secular form but more of our spirit that we share with those around us. So this Christmas, many will be alone without love ones around them. Go and spread the love and joy with them even to knock on your neighbours door to wish them a Merry Christmas.

On that note, let me share with you this stunning outfit I have styled for Christmas from this fabulous store here in Singapore called What Women Want. True to its name, this store has almost everything a woman desires. From fashion to jewellery to shoes and accessories. So if you are residing in Singapore, do pop over to their boutique at the Mandarin Gallery to check them out. Of course they have just finished their Holiday Soiree pop up but you can most definitely find great buys in time for your festive shopping. 

In tropical Singapore, and bearing in mind the restrictions at play for big group festive gatherings, so many will be entertaining in smaller groups or even in their own backyard instead of the traditional hotel get togethers. Styling this summer maxi dress with silver threads running through the outfit, it gives it a little sheen and shine which is perfect for Christmas in the Tropics. Let me tell you the drama I had to go through to get this shoot in place. Was at the airport thinking it will be all setup with beautiful decorations for my backdrop but sadly enough with travel minimised to almost a standstill, therefore it was a sad situation at what would have been a gorgeous backdrop at Singapore's Changi Airport that usually spares no expense to deck out the terminals in splendid Christmas cheer. 

So I decided with my assistant of the day, to head to another popular spot in Singapore where the recent Crazy Rich Asian movie was set for the gorgeous wedding at Chijmes Singapore. And lo and behold, we were able to secure a dining dome that was sprawled all over the lawn where reservations are free though we need to order some food and drinks from any of the outlets within Chijmes. We were sooo lucky that there was a last minute cancellation as all online bookings were full for these domes and my good friend and assistant of the day, Lauren and I had a whale of a 2 hr time slot to do my photoshoot whilst sipping a whole bottle of Chardonnay and stuffing ourselves with tacos on the side.

Anyway more of this gorgeous scene in the next posts but meanwhile, here's a nice kickstart to Christmas looks and celebrations from the dome at Chijmes.

Stay safe everyone and stay tuned for more Christmas looks.

Love,

Simone xoxo
