Classic Accessories

My personal favourite accessory for dressing up any outfit is surely the classic pearl necklace. Swarovski pearls come in various sizes but I especially love the chunky big ones. Beige pearl necklaces are great for dressing up for important meetings and dates! This is truly timeless appeal in a small package. What is your favourite easy-to-wear accessory for dressing up?

Black and White Wingtips

It probably sounds like I'm making a monumental fuss over something as trivial as a pair of shoes but I've been looking around for a pair of black and white/grey wingtips (oxfords) for the longest time. I've searched for it online and in the shops but so far the search has been in vain. A perfect pair would be one with moderate-height heels in patent leather. Found this nice pair with the perfect shape on ebay but it's not fully covered: This men's pair looks good too, pity it doesn't come with heels:
I thought my search has come to fruition when I found this B Store by Buddhahood pair in black and grey at Sole 2 Sole months ago and was so excited! But alas, it was not to be as the pair in my size was sold out:

I also found wingtips either in all black or all white in other boutiques but nothing as chic as this 2-tone pair. If you know where to get duo-tone wingtips, please let me know!

My Outfit Today

For my cousin's wedding in July, I decided to try something different. Instead of wearing the obvious evening-glam dresses, I wore this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress which is more day-smart-casual than evening wear. I glam-ed it up with a gold chunky bracelet and other accessories instead. Love the contrast between the 2 fabrics and the row of big navy blue buttons down the front:Paired the dress with a chunky bracelet, polka dot sling (to contrast with the stripes on the dress) and pink patent Miu Miu slingbacks. These appear to be my favourite combination of shoes and bag at the moment!
