STAR STUDDED

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.

TONIGHT I JUST WANNA DANCE & GET AWAY

"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 ;)

INSIDE the CHANEL JACKET

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!
