It was only last November when Shopbop held a big promotion on its site and guess what, it's back again! From today, Tuesday March 3 2015, 7.30pm local time till Sunday March 8 2015, 4pm local time, Shopbop will be having an online-wide discount (exclusion of Stuart Weitzman) of up to 25% off.

You save 15% with purchase over $250
You save 20% with purchase over $500
You save 25% with purchase over $1000

Below are last month's top selling trends, just to give you a good gauge on what's hot this season (not in particular order).
1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Backpack
2. 5th & Mercer Long-sleeve Dress (comes in 4 colors)
3. DVF Zarita Lace Dress (comes in 4 colors)
4. One by Contrarian Bralet Maxi Dress(comes in 8 colors!)
5. BB Dakota Lilian Drapey Front Jacket

I believe in the comeback of the backpacks, because scouring high and low for a leather one myself is my mission right now. There's plenty rad looking ones I can envision myself using, but the price is way out of my league. If your pockets are more filled, I highly suggest you invest in a backpack too.

Anyway, let me fill you in on the new brands on Shopbop that looks promising.
 Filling Pieces


Be sure to check them all out, and if none of these intrigues you, I am most definite that the promotion is a good enough reason for you to pay Shopbop a visit, and finally get that bag you've been eyeing for.

Have a blast shopping, and remember, fastest fingers first!

(H&M halter asymmetrical top, Tensca flare pants, Vincci pearl hook earrings, Pandora pearl ring, Zara strappy heels)

Long flare pants are my everything right now and this gradient pair from an Indonesian brand just takes it up a notch. I recalled falling in love with it at first sight. Tried it on and bam! To the cashier I go. Those pearl hook drop earrings? Can you believe it's my second pair? The first broke in my purse,  perhaps from crushing it, God knows, but having found another similar pair from Vincci priced much lesser... WIN.

(Asos turtleneck cropped top, MDS tulle skirt, Superga sneakers, Zara suede backpack, Lovisa pearl earrings)

Tulle skirts may be so yesterday, but having only worn this piece once, I had to change it up somehow and so, this time round, I opted for a more casual look by bringing in my trusty backpack and favourite white sneakers. Can you believe the Zara backpack lasted me 6 years?! Who would've thought a suede backpack could survive living in the closet... Having said that, I am pining for a new carryall, any suggestions? Am leaning towards the design in the style edit below, something very simple and classy. Hit me up should you know any!
