Lile Aux Ashby @ Digital Fashion Week 2013

Digital Fashion Week 2013 came hot on the wheels behind Fide FW 2013.

I had to pleasure to attend Lile Aux Ashby’s SS 2014’s showcase
on the invitation of Glenn of The Dapper Boys (@theDapperBoys)! Thanks Glenn! 😉

Shop away for their collection on ASOS marketplace here.

I love these orange prints on this purse and jacket and these blue prints on the purse and dress!

Nanis x Goldheart Dancing in the Rain Collection @ JewelFest 2013

JewelFest 2013 took place during the same period as Fide Fashion Week.
Here are some photos and a video I took when I was there at the media preview! 🙂

Nanis is an Italian jewellery brand by founder and designer Laura Bicego.
The brand represents creativity and versatility
which is undoubtedly expressed by how the jewellery pieces can be worn in several ways!
When it comes to just how many ways a piece of pendant can be worn, the sky’s the limit.

For their expansion in Singapore, Nanis teamed up with Goldheart Singapore
for a special line “Dancing in the Rain” which is as beautiful as it is poetic.
I’ll let the photos do the talking. 😉

Nanis’ spokesperson, who in a private conversation later explained to me that
Nanis is the name of a beautiful girl who brought joy and smiles to the founder Bicego.
What a beautiful name and story!Nanis x Goldheart JewelFest 2013

That’s the charming creative designer and founder Laura Bicego.

The demonstration of “Dancing in the rain” begins!

Another pendent, here worn as a bracelet but can also be worn as a necklace.

The Nanis brand is a beautiful and versatile jewellery brand that brings out a woman’s confidence and creativity.
This demonstration left all of us present with a sense of wonder and playfulness,
that fashion and beauty is unlimited when we put our creative juices to use.

Visit Goldheart Jellewery stores in town to get a piece of Nanis for yourself
and let the inner creative spirit in your shine through! 😉

Fide Fashion Week 2013

This is my super belated post on attending Fide Fashion Week
while working with Clozette/GlamAsia.com, almost three months back. 😛
I’ve procrastinated on blogging this because I’ve got a lot of photos from attending 8 out of 11 nights.
Better late then never, so I’ll the the photos do the talking!

Their Towako Mist and FTC UV Perfect Cream.
The mist can be used / applied even above make up, best for OLs who are exposed to aircon all day long, to keep their skin moist and supple. The FTC UV is perfect for my arms which I try to apply every day before heading out. It protects my skin from the sun and has a sweet grape scent which I love!2013-10-12 13.41.51
Also had the privilege to interview Japanese  haute couture fashion designer designer Yoshiki Hishinuma.

Enabalista featured in HotelClub’s The Best Singapore Lifestyle Blogs of 2013!

 Thanks to HotelClub for featuring my blog Enabalista as one of the Best Singapore Lifestyle Blogs of 2013! It is my honour and privilege to be mentioned next to fellow bloggers like MsGlitzy (whom I am a fan and longtime reader of) and Felicia Neo! Couldn’t have done it without the support of my readers, many of whom are my family and friends.  Thus I dedicate this milestone to all of my dear readers! I also want to thank God for this award because it’s a great blessing to be picked out of many lifestyle bloggers in Singapore. 🙂 

Enabalista HotelClub Best Lifestyle Blog 2013

This is an excerpt from the HotelClub featured article!:


Who?: Ena Teo, Enabalista

Why?: An honest and open account of young Singaporean life

Follow: @ena_teo


Real estate agent by day, lifestyle blogger by night, Ena began blogging at just 13 years of age, and in the ensuing years has honed her writing to a finely tuned craft. Her site, Enabalista.com, covers her own experiences of living in Singapore, ranging from the extremely personal (see her posts about her graduation and her business ideas) to working, shopping, dining and going out. We were particularly taken by her willingness to share and engage with her followers, as well as her knowledge of all that Singapore has to offer!

“The Singaporean lifestyle is fast-paced and mostly work-driven. However, increasingly, Singaporeans are also learning how to enjoy life through fine cuisine, fashion and beauty. As a local Singaporean, I love to share with friends and readers my take on fashion, beauty and food that I encounter in my life. It brings me joy when I meet fellow like-minded readers all over the world who enjoy reading about what I blog!”

Red dress kinda day ;)

Been quite excited over this red dress 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!  。(⌒∇⌒。)

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. 🙂 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. 🙂 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!:

Ena Teo Oasap Contrast Collar Embriodered Dress 1

Taken during lunch time! Just right outside my office building, which explains why it looks SO bright here cause it was! 😛 Matched it with my Charles & Keith heels which are my new favourite shoes! 😀 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.

Ena Teo Oasap Contrast Collar Embriodered Dress 3A close up of the embroidered detailing on the dress. It has a great finish, no frill ends! Accessorized with my star & wing ring and black strap watch from Fossil Relic.

My review: 

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! 🙂 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. 🙂 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: 4/5 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! 🙂

Shipping: 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.

If you like the dress, you can buy it >> here.
