Following on this series of Givenchy SS2013 posts is this gorgeous one of a kind bolero. It was just too beautiful to pass up and the stars around the neck just makes for a damn good statement. What better way than to make a punctuation that I'm a star no? Lol.
Since I already started on the Givenchy posts yesterday, I thought why not do a series of posts on the fierce fashion pieces that's available from the house from their Cruise 2013 and Spring-Summer 2013 collections. First up -
While I was doing one of my window shopping rounds, spotted this gorgeous neoprene long vest with a hood from Givenchy. Though it's a piece that's relatively warm for Singapore weather, I thought it could definitely add instant street cred to any casual outfit - definitely did that for what I was wearing that day. It's honestly a perfect winter to spring piece in places where the weather permits - dare I say perfect for New York. To top the look off, I paired it with this printed satin and leather sneakers that are to die for. It had the right amount of attitude to make this look rock!
By now I think most of you would've heard that Givenchy's guru - Ricardo Tisci - designed RiRi's outfits for her latest concert and I must say they are fly! Below would be a glimpse of the pieces from her Toronto tour kick-off.
"Cause we ain't even on earth tonight! We're on a planet where the dudes got money and they ain't afraid to spend it!" I am so in love with this song that I've got it on constant loop the whole day and I think this will be a song I'll have on loop for weeks to come. Definitely the perfect song I needed considering the long day I've had - upbeat and totally danceable! I think Jessica Sanchez's latest single featuring Ne Yo is a dance/pop anthem genius. I can totally hear this playing loud in clubs and just mindlessly dancing to it!
Oh and did you fasioneistas notice that all silver metallic ensemble? It's sick! Adored it - specially the shoes. Departing a bit from my usual fashion features, I honestly think that overall for a first single - it's not bad at all. I'd have to say it's very catching and showcases her vocal chops in a way that's totally now. Though the song is amazing, the video I think could've been done better. Just one tip for our aspiring diva - own it! You're a diva then flaunt it. Loved the parts of the video where she showcased a ton of attitude - just wished it was more consistent throughout. In any case brava girl! Looking forward to more amazing songs ;)

It seems like we're at a crossroads dearest fasioneistas. Rumors have been rampant. Fasioneistas have been frantic. The final vestiges of iconic Yves Saint Laurent pieces, which we thought would be kept intact by new designer Hedi Slimane, are about to bid adieu.

This coming 23rd-24th of March, Gucci will celebrate the House’s Flora motif in a two-day exhibition of archival pieces from Florence’s Gucci Museo. And they will be on display here in our very own island of Singapore at the ArtScience Museum.
The Exhibition will showcase a curated selection of original Flora scarves, illustrations from Vittorio Accornero, women’s ready-to-wear pieces, handbags and unique porcelain items, all of course with the enduring and iconic Flora print. Quite exciting to be able to view fashion history in the making eh? Count me in and I'll be one of the first to queue in line for this exhibit! Can't wait!

If there is one thing I'm craving for and am absolutely dying to have - that would be a classic jacket from Chanel. As the Maestro would say it, "there are things in fashion that would never go out of style - jeans...a white shirt...and a Chanel jacket." And darn it I agree!
Oh how I long for the day and that day must come soon!
