The best thing about working at an engineering firm is probably the freedom of choice on what to wear at work. Even though I prefer something more casual, sometimes I do have the fantasy about workwear - flared trousers, linen blazer, and cotton white shirt make a perfect effortless chic workwear. Instead of the classy white shirt, I'm dressing this grey sweater with side slits with the flared trousers, something classy and minimalistic yet a little bit of sexy.

To complete the look, a stack of rings on fingers would do :) I recently received those beautiful rings from Petit Sesame, a French-based online boutique to offer beautiful pieces for an affordable price.

Wishlist: Holiday Shopping

It's almost the end of November, which means the Black Friday sale is coming soon! Is anyone ready for it? :) Well, instead of lining up in the cold night, I'd rather do some research online beforehand, look for the ones I want to buy, and just click click click when the day finally arrives *wink wink*. I've been keeping my eyes on those Aquazzura pumps - they are sooo beautiful and comfortable too! (tried them on at Holt Renfrew a few days ago, uhmmm... we will see!). And the card holder from Vianel is also on my list - something simple while you have all the cards you need: credit card and driver's licence, right? ;) Do you guys know any sale coming up soon? Let me know in the comment section below! xoxo, Claire.

The Black Dress

wearing: Klarra Black Dress (similar Plethora Dress) | Mango Sweater (similar ASOS)
MANGO Coat (similar ASOS or ASOS) | Helmut Lang Booties (also on Shopbop) | Zara Scarf (similar Resis)

Okay, I'm pretty sure you've heard this a lot, "every woman should have a little black dress in her wardrobe". Here you go, the black dress, from Klarra. Gotta admit I wasn't a fan of maxi dress, so this is a good try :) Since the temperature is dropping to almost zero degree, here I'm wearing a sweater underneath the dress, along with my usual grey coat and the houndstooth scarf. Probably it's hard to tell from the photos, the dress has a beautiful V-neckline. The model wears it in a more elegant way (mine is more like dark-side style I think, ha!). Yay for maxi black dress? xoxo, Claire.

Always feel more feminine when dressing in skirt. That pencil skirt, of course, the ultimate piece to enhance your feminine side, si? I always thought the best way to style a pencil skirt is a simple white shirt, but then I was probably wrong. This teal leather top from Klarra creates a new classic feminine look when being styled with the pencil skirt. I simply love it. xoxo, Claire.
