Last Thursday, C and I popped down to Wisma Atria for Fashion Night Out with Miss Selfridge. In between our sampling of the delicious hors d'œuvre and petits fours courtesy of Cova, and trying out of some Minx nails courtesy of Vedure Nailspa, the girls of Miss Selfridge presented some key trends for fall including the jumpsuit, the lace shift dress, the maxi-dress, animal prints, the embellished evening jacket and high-waisted denim, and Benefit Cosmetics held a demonstration of a flawless natural evening look using its wide range of skin makeup products.
Miss Selfridge has always been a go-to for Singaporean girls (and women all over the world) looking to incorporate slightly more quirky pieces (such as the adorable trapeze jacket, or even the jumpsuit) or trendy pieces (the lace shift dress, or the embellished evening jacket) into their outfits. We enjoyed the styling the Miss Selfridge girls presented (and their own outfits as well; Topshop Wisterias, anyone?). The maxi-dress look particularly piqued our interest as a cardigan was layered beneath the denim jacket, and cuffed to the elbow with the denim. Toss a printed scarf on, and I could wear the look with my black maxi tank dress for something more minimalist.
A complete summer look with bare arms and legs was fitting for one of my last chances at dressing for Singapore's eternal summer ahead of fall dressing in London; less than 7 days to departure. (Two sweet girls at the event asked for a how-to on my hair - hot-weather-friendly pinned up braids, a style I've loved for ages. Cupcakes and Cashmere wears a version exactly like mine! It's perfect for thicker hair.) I'm still debating with myself whether to bring the Marni bag with me to London, as sorting out of the Closet has commenced with a draft packing list at the ready... more on the process soon.
Thank you to Miss Selfridge and Vedure for the much-needed fashion night out in the midst of my busy, busy week unpacking boxes at my new place!
