What's In My Bag

I've been trying to reduce the number of items that I need to carry out recently. It does annoy me a bit when I just want to look for something in my bag and usually need to spend more time to search in my bag (too many stuffs in one place!). So I puzzled out which ones are the essentials and here are the current items in my clutch - iPhone, Saint Laurent Card Case, Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (it does a good job, you can purchase it from Sephora or Amazon), YSL Rouge Volupte in Rose Culte, Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Remedy, Marc Jacobs Daisy Sample (I've collected lot of perfume samples but I always forget to use them...), and Sephora Mirror.

Ahh, Let me tell you how I met my new Saint Laurent card case.... I was looking for a card holder/case for a while because I planned to carry less cards with me (so it can fit into the clutch). In order to make my life less painful, I used Lyst to keep track of the similar items from different online stores. One of the advantages to use Lyst is their Sale Alerts. You will get notified via email when one of the items from your Lyst goes on sale somewhere else, which is actually helpful when there are so many sales going on and you'll be the first one to know the sale before the item is sold out (Lyst will also notify you when the item comes back in stock). That's how I got my Saint Laurent card case from Barneys New York and I am really happy about the purchase. So make sure you check out Lyst and see how it can be convenient to you when it comes to online shopping!

What's In My Bag:

The Sparking List

The Christmas is exactly one week away, but I still feel like there is so much shopping to do before it’s the time to open the presents. So today I'm sharing with you guys a few more of my favourite items that might be perfect for friends and family. I've kept my eyes on the gorgeous gold necklace from Michael Hill for a while, such a beautiful piece for mom (or maybe this rose gold watch, any thought?). And how adorable are these pineapple earrings? I’d probably get a pair if I had my ears pierced! See any item that you might like from the sparking list? :)

Grey Day

There are perfect days for a monochrome look, aka overcast, hmm? Although a monochrome outfit could be as simple as it seems, I always like to add a few pieces, like this statement necklace from Lavender Moon, to enhance the details. The side slits on the sweater add some dramatic wind-effect when you're walking briskly (or when the light is about to turn red soon). The proper balance between simplification and complication on an outfit can result in an interesting look, si?

Many of you probably already knew this on Instagram - I got these beautiful Rupert Sanderson pointed toe flats for myself as a "gift". The lust for pointed toe flats wasn't just built up over one night. From fashion shows, magazines to Instagram fashionistas, it’s unavoidable to see pointed toe flats all over the places. The overloaded images of these beauties had completely persuaded me to consider them as one of the statement pieces in your (or my) shoe closet.

Rupert Sanderson definitely knows how to design a pair of shoes to make a woman become obsessed with his creation. Unlike other classy leather pointed toe flats, these Isolde flats have been finished with a pyramid-stud panel along with gleaming gold buckles. That’s what I love about them mostly.

I think I've become a true fan of Rupert Sanderson’s shoe design.

Layering a denim shirt over this Matty sweater from BB Dokota, with a delicate Element 7 body chain that somehow disguised itself really well with the sweater (hard to tell eh?), just another casual weekend attire to keep myself comfortable in a busy schedule.

I know I've been talking about Daniel Wellington watch a lot, but I'd still like to remind you guys: Daniel Wellington is offering you guys 15% off on all DW products and Free Worldwide Shipping via their official site + gift wrapping when purchasing an extra strap! Oh, if you place an order before Dec. 19, you will get it before Christmas! Remember to use “Holiday-vonvogue” at checkout. The offer is valid until January 15th, 2015.
