Red dress kinda day ;)

Been quite excited over this red dressย and the sunglasses since receiving it from Choies.com in the mail! Was expecting the red colour to be brighter but after wearing and see the photos, the deep red colour is growing on me as well. Perfect for a formal day wear as well as for dinners!

Took these photos at my current company office’s balcony which you can tell is rather obviously neglected in terms of paint work. But after some fotorus & vsco filters it looks like I’m somewhere in HK highlands having a holiday. Well, no picture that a filter can’t fix and a holiday abroad somewhere cold… I could do with that right now. >_<

Ena’s Outfit | Oasap Classic Embroidered Dress

{ Sponsored Post }

Hi guys! ย ใ€‚(โŒ’โˆ‡โŒ’ใ€‚)

This week I got my dress which I ordered from Oasap, a very lovely contrast collar and embroidered dress!

So I wore it to work…

Here’s my makeup look of the day aka #lotd:

Ena Teo Makeup LOTDI matched my eyeshadow colour with the dress, with blue and black at the winged tip portion with black eye liner. It’s my current eye makeup style, a mix of eyeshadow and eyeliner that wings outwards. ๐Ÿ™‚ Applied a generous amount of blusher that I promise does not look that much in real life. And pink lipsticks. Just happened that today all make up mentioned are Estee Lauder except eyeliner is Maybelline’s Impact Express Eyeliner, which is my favourite of all, my holy grail make up item. Still have not finished all the Estee Lauder products I got from last year! No idea how some girls keep buying when I can never finish mine, lol. Not that I am complaining. the only beauty products I can finish are eyeliner, make up remover and skin care products like sunblock. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also have on Estee Lauder brow pencil in dark brown, though you can’t really tell since my fringe is covering my brows.

More pics!:

Taken during lunch time! Just right outside my office building, which explains why it looks SO bright here cause it was! ๐Ÿ˜› Matched it with my Charles & Keith heels which are my new favourite shoes! ๐Ÿ˜€ They go with almost everything and are the most comfy heels I have. <3 <3 <3 Also seen, carrying my Kenzo green pouch from the SS13 Tiger Collection. I don’t think I’ve posted a pic on that before.. But the season’s already over. Lol.

My review:ย 

Design & Quality: 4.5/5 I picked this dress because it’s simple, classic and I just love the touch of gold and baroque leaves design! It’s a dress that’s great for work, formal lunch and dinners and even dates! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am super glad to report that the quality is great! It has an inner soft lining so the dress is comfortable on the skin. Finishing is flawless. Fit is great. In fact when I wore it to office, two of my colleagues commented on it, saying it was nice. ๐Ÿ™‚ Only downside is that the material though perfect for air-con office, it isn’t suitable for Singapore on super hot sunny days, so don’t wear this for a day out, lol. But will be great for rainy weather!

Price: 4/5ย At original price US$39.90, I think it could be cheaper(no need for them to pay rental and it was a light package to deliver), since it’s an online purchase, and the folks at Oasap must have read my mind because they are now offering this beautiful dress at… US$33.92! ๐Ÿ™‚

Shipping:ย 2.5/5 I thought the shipping took rather long. I ordered on 2 September but only received it this Monday, 16 September after two whole weeks. However the upside is that it came in mint condition, in fact wrapped in 3 plastic layers which made me wonder if it was necessary, I feel bad for all this packaging waste. But I’m not complaining.

Style | Modern Classic

In the second installment of my Style series, I picked out a few Modern Classic pieces.

Classic styles are fashion pieces that you can look good in whether 5 years ago or 5 years later. Modern Classic styles are pieces that are updated with a touch of today’s urbanity, so you look classic but also relevant by infusing certain trends into the classic style.

Modern Classic style is ideal for women who work in corporate environments who cannot dress too outstandingly but still appreciated to dress in a trendy and relevant manner.

It is also a smart and easy way of dress, once you acquire the Modern Classic sense of aesthetics, you’ll be able to make wise purchases that you can wear repeatedly and ideally the individual pieces can mix and match well with the other items in your wardrobe.

Two key brands that represents the Modern Classic aesthetics are Paul Smith and DKNY. Season after season, they present runway pieces that are simple, classic and yet relevant.

Quite understandably, women around the world look towards the wives of the men in Politics / Royalty like Kate Middleton and Michelle Obama for Modern Classic style tips. Indeed they are in the precise position of requiring to look powerful, regal yet modern and relevant.

Kate Moss is another example of the Modern Classic lady with, a few years back, she made famous the boyfriend blazer look and she has gone on to collaborate with high-street brands like Topshop.
