This is dedicated to brown ankle boots! It’s tough to find photos for brown because almost everyone wears black! Oh well! And guess what? During a sale, I cannot stop myself but to get a pair because it’s so affordable and pretty! Haha… I have been keeping it since… June because I want to find the right time of the year to wear them! Anyway, it does not matter since you can match them with skinny jeans or even trendier, wear them with leggings. However, a word of caution, if you have thick thighs, please do not wear leggings!

A dark brown pair of stockings is the way to go with the light brown boots. So pretty… I shall give it a go tomorrow by wearing them with my white jeans. If the jeans are long enough, we can tuck it into the boots. Looks even cooler (no bun intended) with a mini skirt or shorts!

Looooove the cutting for this pair of leather boots. Leather is the most common yet the best investment as it never go out of style. Another choice is the suede ones.

A good choice of a pair of sand-coloured leggings. Looks classy. I am getting a pair of leggings and socks to match my boots!

This is a beautiful pair with wooden heels which reminds me of a pool table cue. It’s designed by an online blogger which made it onto the shelves!


It has been wet September in Singapore. My star buy for this month is a long cardigan from Cotton On! Below are some ways to dress up the long cardigan. If you have thick hips/thighs, I would suggest not to button up the cardigan which will create an inverted “V” which would make you look larger. The thicker the cardigan, the more bulk it will add. For those who just want a feminine, flowy feeling, a thin or even translucent cardigan would do the trick.

A dramatic piece with wavy front. Middle range prices can be found at Mango or Zara.

A kimono style sleeves. A spunky look with a simple t-shirt and shorts. I love it! You can get this piece online or Cotton On. It’s pretty popular this season. Versatile and practical. A good piece to invest in.

A no-no for big size ladies. Unbutton so that there is a vertical lines in the centre which helps to create an illusion of a slimmer and longer bodice.

Different ways to add some delight to the long cardigan.
