Never saw the need for fashion tapes till I bought this dress a few months back from an Indonesian label. A genius invention really. The tapes I mean. Not sure why many Hollywood celebrities risk going without it and then go,

"Oops, wardrobe malfunction!"

I mean, these tapes are called Hollywood Fashion Tapes for goodness sake. Not quite sure why I'm rambling about sticky tapes either, but anyway...

What drew me to this dress was the back that could almost pass off as the front... and before you say try it, I rather be sexy than skanky. This dress is beyond dangerous I'm not sure I can ever wear it again without having Nasrul go mad. Honestly, he thought I looked rather boring at first. All it took was a turn, a quick flash of my charming smile before I saw the fastest change of confusing expressions.

"Mehhh ... WOW ... wait ... WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?!"

I wore a jacket for good measure for the rest of the day, fyi.

Before I abruptly go, as I always do, I've had people asking me where I bought my Michael Kors watch, and thought perhaps I should address it here. Head on down to Shopbop (click here) and be impressed with their wide range of watches, and other goods like bags and accessories available on the site. Or go crazy and spend hours browsing for shoes like me. Whatever. Just go. Be free.

Abrupt end.

Being with someone special for a long time takes a whole lot of effort on both ends. Love isn't enough to keep two hearts connected. There's trust, honesty, loyalty, compromise and the list just goes on and on.

Last Wednesday, Nasrul and I celebrated our anniversary for the eighth time. Sadly, we've ran out of things to do here in tiny ol' Singapore, and so, all we did was shop for our couple wear and sneakers, (which we've been doing since our teenage years guys, so please quit judging). I still remember fondly our second anniversary spent in Sentosa, wearing matching Gap tees. Lucky for you, the photos are all gone along with my old laptop, so you're spared from ugly ol' (or young) us. Out of the 8 celebrations, half were spent in Sentosa, including this year's. Very creative, huh.

Moving along, I know quite a few couples celebrating their anniversary this month too, and so, what a better way to gift a gift of timeless love with Daniel Wellington. I accessorised my outfit with DW's Classic Canterbury Lady in Silverware, choosing a Nato strap that matches my bracelets, and our nautical-themed ensemble.

Daniel Wellington has been around since 2011, and quickly gained popularity amongst international fashion bloggers and icons. Designs are inspired by the preppy trend, very casual yet classy at the same time. What's great about DW watches are its interchangeable straps that gives you endless possibilities, and for someone colourful like me, that's an incredible plus point. What's more, because of their minimalistic design, they're great on anyone.

The best surprises come in the form of footwear. As biased as my opinions may be, there's no denying that this Nelissa Hilman pair of loafers are an instant attraction.

Originating from Malaysia, Nelissa Hilman is a designer footwear label made for the modern women who appreciates quality living. Designed to give maximum comfort and longevity, while at the same time promising quality and timelessness, each pair of Nelissa Hilman shoes are a piece of personal statement of style that are bound to give inspirations.

My choice of footwear is the Duma, a pair of loafers that resonates with my everyday style. A lover of animal print, the leopard was an ultimate win in my book. So many ways of styling this pair, from dressing it up or down, that I can't wait to show you my first ensemble featuring this gorgeous pair. While waiting for my next post, head on down to their website (here) and view the wide range of footwear available. You'll be spoilt for choices, trust me. Till then!
