Autumn's Gold

The fields are empty, the woods are burnt -
Our kings have been blinded by shining of gold.
-- Fferyllt "Autumn's Gold"
    I suppose the autumn colours have finally won me over, or rather my closet. Yellow and green have been my wardrobe staple lately, and even the nails are not to be spared in this sartorial celebration of the most abundant of seasons. 
    I took these photos right after an afternoon drizzle, not much sunlight to be honest but the trees were always greener in the damp air. Have a great weekend, my dears!

Green October

    Here're some new stuff I got this month. Ear-cuffs are new territory for me, but this dragon one from Romwe is just so "Game of Thrones"-ish I had to give it a try. Also I acquired some ancient-looking bangles and a lovely emerald green bow, adore 'em all.
    And then there's this green cardigan with gold glitters that arrived in the mail last week. The green hue is so very fall and I'm thinking of pairing it with a mustard yellow skirt or a pair of yellow tights. You can see the green better here.
    Speaking of which, they are having a Halloween sale over at Romwe starting October 26th. Here's the preview link and here're some of my favourite items on sale :
Cat's Eye Sunglasses
Fitted Camel Cape
Flower Woollen Hat
Paillette Tank Dress
Metal Toe-cap Heels
Double Chains Leaf Necklace
Gold-buckled Yellow Brown Bag
Wednesday Addam's Dress  :D

    Well, you can tell I'm really into camel and black and gold, haha. By the way, they are having a daily giveaway for jumpers with cat print, deer print and rivets. If you're feeling lucky, check out their facebook page here for details. Bonne chance!

Good Old Times

Whatever happened to the good old times ?
Can't we replace the times when we fell behind ?
-- Fanmail "Good Old Times"
    For some reason I'm developing an affinity for dishevelled semi-grungy looks. Perhaps it has something to do with the frayed denim shorts from Romwe I'm addicted to these days, perhaps it's these oh-so-manly Docs that are the culprits.
    I can't figure out how to tie shoelaces nicely so sorry for the mess up front. By the way, Romwe is having a huge Halloween sale (here) and I just got myself a devil's hat! I'm saving it for a Halloween post so I'm playing it coy here, hah  :D
    p/S  You can get more discounts using the code "halloween20" from 10.26-11.01.

Fall Eats

    It has been raining practically every afternoon these days so I'm rendered indoor-bound. I have a tonne of outfits that I want to shoot and it's all very frustrating. I guess the stew must originate from some unfortunate soul who was trapped indoors by lousy weather with plenty of time to watch the pot boil and bubble. This apple chicken stew was culled from lifescript and just took a snap to make. Plus all that cider and apples make the cold weather that much more agreeable, don't you think?

Glitters and Wine

Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring,
My summer wine is really made from all these things.
-- Nancy Sinatra "Summer Wine"
    I'm now immersed in a computer game of modern-day-meets-fairytale material, castles aplenty, damsels in distress ... that sort of thing. Forgive me if I'm possessed to dress medieval-ish, it's the unfortunate curse of irretractable game obssession, you see.
    By the way, this cami from Kristine's Collection is fast becoming a favourite, I love pairing it with maxis because it just looks dramatic yet romantic. The burgundy maxi skirt however is going to the tailor's soon to be snipped off of a few inches, and then my ankles can breath!

Sweet Kristine

    Some while ago, Kristine the lovely designer at Kristine's Collection asked me if I would be interested in a collaboration. After perusing her website, I totally fell in love with some of the pieces. There are some really romantic dresses as well as very wearable daily outfits. I will be posting an outfit with the ruffled top above soon (hopefully, like "tomorrow" soon) ... so do stay tuned!
    Oh, and if you're eyeing Romwe items, there's a kickoff sale right now. You may use these codes for further discounts : Oct15 for $15 off $80, Oct25 for $25 off $115 and Oct35 for $35 off $135. The sale will end on 14th Oct. Have a good week, shopping or otherwise! Ciao

Jersey Girl

The summer ends and we wonder where we are.
And there you go, my friends, with your boxes in your car
-- Dar Williams "End of the Summer"
    These days I'm pretty much into dark nails and dark Japanese movies that kill off someone every 5 minutes. Also a new fan of the greatness that is unkempt bedhead + phone-wielding pose, which in some weird twisted way makes you look lazy and busy at the same time. 
    And lately I've rediscovered the joys of jersey through this Romwe maxi and a soon-to-post beckybwardrobe casual dress (you can get a 10% discount with this code : blogger10). Just so comfy and effortlessly chic. The polish is a fab matte midnight blue/navy by Laushine.
