fashion fades, style remains

Posted in fashion by littleredblog on August 16, 2009

You heard those wise words from every girl’s love, Coco Chanel. This series, Quote Unquote, we did a little tribute to the famous quotations made by this French couturier.

(Speaking of which, hands up those who will be watching the movie, Coco Before Chanel! It will be opened on 27 August, and you can be quite sure to see Zi and I in the theatre.)

We ain’t near couture, but we subscribe dearly to the concept of style. As long as you wear them right and with attitude, nothing anyone says can or should bring you doubts. Carry it with confidence!

Also, you can call it a quarter life thing, but of late, I have been overwhelmed with the thought that,

you should most definitely make yourself feel pretty every single day.

If you want to dress up a certain style, wear it. If you want to buy something, buy it – within reasonable means of course.

Try it, this thought is liberating. Even if it’s just school you are visiting, the usual workplace you are going to, or the same old friends and/or boyfriend you are meeting. Why? Because we are literally at our P R I M E . Why scrimp and/or look the same old when you can be better? Not for people to judge you, but solely for you yourself alone.

Enough of my emo naggings. Because it’s been a while since we blogged (bad, bad), here’s a run down of the the latest trends we like – all in one post.

#5 Bodycon Anything

Bandage skirts, bodycon dresses, spandex, stretchy cotton, and really nice prints.

#4 Fringe Swing

Swing swing, if you are not into structured clothes, this is your godsend. From hanging strands to ripped cloth, it’s perfect for those too-cool-for-school days. And oh yes, fringed bags/purses – absolute love!



#3 Stud Up

Studs are never out of fashion and just have that power to make the boring apparel look different. Tip: Studs are great add-ons to store in your drawer. Get those with ‘teeths’ – not only are they easy to hook on but you can also remove them when you don’t want them anymore!



#2 B.V.J Medley

Bring on the blazers, vests and jackets! Particular to blazers, I say it is something that springed off from MJ’s death – which reiterates how style remains.



#1 Power Shoulder

Much to the dismay of some, but the extreme excitement of ours, you know as long as you tread the line of fashion statement well versus gaudy girl from the ’80s, this is going to be really interesting! Not convinced? Try reading this post one month down the road, maybe less.

P.S. We have a surprise involving Little Red Heels and a shophouse, and we ain’t telling. SO, keep a lookout at this space. :)

    This reply is really late but al, I think quirkiness is a style too. Dress as you like and carry it with confidence. People can think what they want, really.

    You got to believe in your style first, before others! :)
