Heels: Studio by Tangs
With Christmas in the air, the quintessential color combination is red, green, and gold. For someone like me, a born-and-bred New Yorker who favors monochromatic hues over flamboyant varicolored ensembles, I prefer to tone down Christmas-themed looks. Which is why, in my latest outfit post, I turned to black and red for the prominent colors, with gold accents spotted here and there. The elements of the outfit were almost contradictory: heels and shorts are not a well-worn combination, but it is a look I love. A balance between alluring high-fashion and casual everyday clothes can be attained, by simply adding a pair of your favorite heels to your outfit. For a place like Singapore, this is a welcome option, as it reinforces the idea of 'Christmas-y', winter fashion, while not taking away from our ideal clothing. The other parts of the look are the Accessorize cross-body satchel and my peplum shirt from Topshop. In its entirety, the outfit sparked the thought of London for me – from the colors to the bag, from Accessorize, which can be spotted all across Oxford Street and other über-stylish parts of the magnificient city. The bag, which is in a stunning shade of cranberry-red, is of ideal size for a day out on the town and displays versatility with its flattering silhouette. My favorite part of the look, though? Earrings sponsored to me by Pinwheel Jewels.
Pinwheel Jewels is Singapore's answer to an online platform specifically created for selling jewelry. Jewelry is considered the strength, even the core, of any outfit – it ties a woman's look together in the most elegant way possible. Pinwheel Jewels has a dazzling variety of designers and brands, offering their unique pieces online at incredible prices. I was delighted to receive two pieces of jewelry from the lovely owners of the company, and have been wearing them both ever since. Jewelry has always been my one weakness when it comes to shopping – I am always on the look out for earrings, necklaces, and bracelets that add character and a bold edge to my outfits. The earrings I wore in this particular shoot were particularly alluring – with an oriental influence clearly found, the delicate gold piece is easy to wear on any occasion and yet, its beauty calls for a special moment to wear it on. With the holiday season upon us, a time for gift-giving, for family dinners and a time, overall for celebration, jewelry like this is just what you need.
