A night out with Coach…

Just a couple of random snaps from “A night out with Coach” a couple weeks back.

OOTD : Daisy set from The Juice Market / Knit from Topshop / Jeffery Campbell-inspired boots from Xquisis

Straw clutch from one of my online hauls from Cotton On, Rubi. Believe it or not I was so lucky to have snagged it for just $5! The blue eyed fox bag charm is handmade by me. Totally blends in with the clutch like they were made for each other.

The Madison Collection. I was quite tempted, but decided in the end the bag itself is pretty weighty, by the time I put all my stuff in there it’s going to weigh a ton. Therefore $1k is safe.

$610 for the tan satchel if I remember correctly. It’s a reasonable price for Coach, but thinking over, who would even know it’s Coach? As much as I was really thinking about this one, I’ve seen similar-looking bags selling for under $50.

Feast your eyes on candy colored wristlets.. and…

Coolest store guy ever. :)

And what do you know, the weekend has come and gone, AGAIN! Have a great week ahead ya’ll! It’s going to be another crazy week for me. Laters! xx

Picking the right knit!

Are knits really suitable for our hot weather? Well, yes, if you pick the right one. Afterall, we don’t get snow here and the only time a thick knit would be appropriate would be on a cold rainy day… Are we getting sucked in to fall fashion and buying knits just cos it’s the season’s must have? Maybe. You might want to keep these in mind when buying a knit to avoid an impulse buy!

♥ Is it too thick for our weather? Remember, thick knits also occupy A LOT of wardrobe space!

♥ How often do you think you will get to wear it?

♥ Does it compliment the other pieces in your wardrobe?

I personally like pieces that are versatile, I have to dark blue knit from Topshop which I actually modified slightly. I don’t just use it as a cardigan, but becos it is light and open front, I can just wrap it around my neck when the temperature doesn’t call extra warmth. Sometimes it makes more sense than having a shawl that is too long and has to be wrapped around your neck twice. I wouldn’t make a big deal out of it if we HAD winter, but the fact is, we don’t.

I got this from Forever21 for $27! Nice and comfy with subtle gold threads woven in. :)
