Year End with ClubCouture!

This is way overdue, but so much has cropped up the past few weeks… I’ve been busy with year end customs most of the time. Last weekend I was busy with a bloggers party and had to cut short my Sunday plans cos Baileys (my bunny) was refusing to eat and was just lying down all day… Everyone got really nervous cos he’s usually so hyperactive, so something was definitely wrong. I’ll leave that for another post tho!

Meanwhile!

If you haven’t already visited the ClubCouture site, they’ve launched a new collection called “The Good Earth”. Yup, no loud colors in this collection but earthly hues… The collection features a couple of knit pieces, perfect for year end even in Singapore as the weather gets wet and cold.

I’ve picked out a couple of my favourite pieces that I feel every wardrobe should have, and since it’s the year end, and year end we party…

Here’s the puuuurrfect little black dress!

Strapless chiffon layered dress $79

I like how the top is fitted to accentuate the bust, and paired with a drapey asymmetrical skirt to show off those legs. Reminds me quite abit of a tuxedo actually. You might want to try the Miu Miu collar accessory with this… It might just work!

For all you jetsetters,

I think these would be great to pack into your suitcase!

The Dark Grey Linen Palazzo ($59) is definitely a comfy piece to put on… Paired with a long sleeve knit top as shown, it creates a very laid back look but you can take it up a notch by pairing it with a neat white tank top and a pair of pretty wedges.

The Ruched Strapless Romper ($49) is another versatile piece. Wear it with the Camel Swing Cardigan ($59) and Laurie Feodra ($29) and you’ll be all set for a day out. Thanks to it’s very unique ruched detail, the romper is made more dressy so come night time just lose the cardi and you’re ready to party!

Speaking of which, look who got caught with champagne bubbly in one hand and camera in the other at the Lauren Jasmine launch at Pacific Plaza recently…

That’s my second plaid shirt from ClubCouture… (It’s sold out tho!) I’m so hooked on plaids, but I think I’ve got just the right amount of plaid in my wardrobe now.

This was my first plaid shirt from clubcouture!

This photo was from a photoshoot all 7 Ambassadors did a year ago. Yup, it’s been a year… which makes this possibly my last post as fashion ambassador for ClubCouture.

What can I say, Thank You ClubCouture,

it’s been a great fashionista year :)

much love, jean

Everyday with ClubCouture ♥

Hey girls! It’s been a while since I last really blogged! Life’s been keeping me well busy, and being on the move means needing tons of outfits! Here are a couple of my favourite looks from ClubCouture :)

I just got this adorable dress recently. It’s super comfy and super cute! Makes me feel like a lil kid again. I’m really back into skater dresses now cos they’re so easy to wear and are good for many occassions!

the willow skater dress is still available (as of now) so hurry grab it before it sells out!

of course, there are occasions that call for more “serious” outfits, and that’s when i absolutely loveeeeeee my turqoise silk dress!

I’m super excited to receive two more dresses I just ordered from ClubCouture this week!

It was love at first sight with this piece. Although I have plans to alter it once I get my hands on it… It’s gonna be shorter! Cos I’m not that tall anyways, need more leg-illusion!

This nude chiffon dress is something you probably wouldn’t expect me to pick out, but hey! I’m all about trying out new looks so I hope I can pull off this country girl vintage look *fingers crossed*

ClubCouture also recently launched the Flair Collection. Fronting the collection are lots of bold pieces, mainly in black and reds, but these pieces caught my eye and I’ve put them together into my favourite Flair look :)

It’s very me isn’t it?

Be sure to check out the look book, and click on the image below to check out the collection!

Please Vote To Get This Dress Manufactured by ClubCouture!

the ClubCouture ambassadors were asked to design their dream dress, and here’s mine! :)

Inspired by celebrity styles, this sunny yellow chiffon maxi will be a great piece to wear in sunny Singapore! Go beach-y with flip flops or dress it up with wedges or heels…

I added in a twist detail at the back to make it stand out from other maxi dresses we see around, and a banded waist for a flattering fit! Chiffon is lightweight and won’t make you sweat in this heat, and it’s a really great fabric to dress up for parties!

If you like my design, please vote to help me get this dress manufactured. Only 2 designs with the highest number of likes on facebook will get manufactured, so please get all your friends to vote as well! In addition, if my dress gets manufactured, one lucky girl who voted will get the dress for FREE!

Like it, and You Could WIN IT!

as most of you would know, i’ve been sick the entire first week of may, and still not exactly in tip top shape this week…

so?

so… i haven’t exactly gone out very much in. plus, the weather has been absolutely crazy hot! but that’s no excuse not to have fun, right? okay, being sick isn’t very much fun, but i’m glad i was able to keep comfy in these tank tops! i love their cropped length, they go fab with my harem pants! perfect for lounging around at home or heading to the mall. i’ll go pretty much anywhere in these actually…

there’s a whole load of other ways you can wear these tanks, but forgive this sick puppy for sticking with the basics this time (cos the fever really fried a good lot of my brain cells this week)

i guess you girls could use some retail theraphy, so i’ve got awesome news!

YEESSSS! ClubCouture is giving away a set of their new signature tank tops (seen on me above) + $50 worth of ClubCouture vouchers to one very lucky girl!

you can’t buy the tank tops, at least not yet, only the ambassadors have it (Aren’t we so lucky?)

so YOU could be the only other person to own these tanks!

mmmm, there is a catch tho…

this one very lucky girl will be randomly picked from votes gathered from the ambassador who gets the most “likes” on facebook at the end of this little contest. so, for a shot at it, first things first…

( the link will open in a new window, so once you’re a fan, click on my photo above to take you to my photo on facebook and CLICK LIKE )

and then once you’re done,

GET ALL YOUR FRIENDS TO DO THE SAME! :)

Voting ends 20th May 2010

remember, if i manage to get the most votes, you’ll get a chance to win the goodies! good luck girls!

Wardrobe SOS!

hot date? big party? no matter what the occassion, this has got to be the most frequently asked question among us girls…

“WHAT SHOULD I WEAR???”

well, fret not, cos you can always count on ClubCouture to have something in store for every occassion! from casual frocks and tops to pretty dresses that’ll make you look a million bucks…

so if you find yourself constantly stuck in a wardrobe rut, i hope these humble style tips will help :)


what’s brunch without florals? pair this with heels for a sophisticated chic look. the cute bow adds fun so you look polished but not too formal for an awesome sunday brunch! bring along a pair of pretty slip ons or flip flops if you intend to go on a shopping spree with the girls after, and dress it down with a cardigan to match.

i say bring on the champagne!

Every girl’s wardrobe should have one of these…

The Biker Jacket from ClubCouture $49

i wear mine with bodycon dresses and leggings ALL THE TIME! it’s comfy and effortlessly chic. perfect especially when you’re going to places like Zirca where the air-conditioning is crazy cold!

my favourite fool-proof combination?

tank top + leggings.

this combination has got to be my ultimate favourite! see, even real rockstars like Mae Sta swear by it!

i’m happy in just a white ribbed tank top , black lame leggings and heels, but if you’re worried that the look might be too simple, take it up a notch with these pieces from ClubCouture :

with the lace details running all the way up the sides, there’s no way you’ll go unnoticed! the necklace throws in a splash of boldness! i’ve gotten myself one even tho i make things like these. for $19, it’s definitely a steal! get them before they sell out!

( black lace leggings )

( satin necklace )

i would definitely wear this if i was still in school. but gosh, i’m done with the books! this is one of my favourite dresses at the moment. its fun, flirty, and i totallly love plaid! did you already know that? this dress takes me out with ben, and out on shopping trips.

doesn’t it remind you of a picnic mat? ben, when are you taking me out for a picnic?

well, i hope you girls enjoy this, cos i had tons of fun putting everything together. let’s bid wardrobe ruts farewell! :)

PS : DON’T FORGET TO USE THE CODE “JEANINE15” AT CHECKOUT!

Jeanine’s Crucial “BE SMART” Shopping Tip :

since we’re still about 3 days to the sale, i would suggest you start “window shopping” once you’re done reading this.

Create an account, and you’ll be able to save items you’re eyeing to purchase under your wishlist. this way, you won’t panic if you wake up late (like 1105am) cos everything you want to buy would be saved under your wishlist and you will be able to add them to your shopping bag with a simple click!

if you’re really worried someone’s going to grab that pretty dress first, then you might want to try adding the items to your shopping bag just before the offer code is released and enter it at checkout once the sale officially begins!

don’t forget our date,

love, jean
