Redy or Not

When in doubt, wear red.

- Bill Blass


The Lunar New Year is fast approaching, and we sure hope you’re prepared to usher in another auspicious year ahead. Between busy schedules and a long list of things to prep for the occasion, it’s totally forgivable if you chose to skip out on purchasing new clothes for the new year.

While dressing in red for the new year might have been the longstanding tradition for most families during this festive season, some of us might have outgrown the tradition of wearing and purchasing new red garments, either for practical reasons or fear of looking a little too over-excited.

Holiday Gift Guide: Food, Fun & Friends!

We’ll applaud if you’ve been nice,
and we won’t judge if you’ve been naughty,
whatever it is
’tis the season to be jolly.


We are almost at the end of the year, and it’s incredible how fast the year has rolled by. Perhaps we aren’t great at time management, but we’d prefer to believe that we were too busy enjoying ourselves to notice!

This is the season where the streets are decked out in shiny lights (or combusting into flames i.e. burning Christmas Tree along Orchard Road), retailers trying their hardest to outdo each other by offering the best deals and restaurateurs busy pushing out decadent desserts and feasts for all.

StyleMakers XmasNewYear

While the glamour of our current surroundings definitely calls for our full attention, this is one of the best times to reflect on how the year has treated us.

This season, we want to appreciate all the missteps that we’ve taken and the calculated risks that has made us stronger and wiser.

We hope to forgive ourselves for the words we wished we hadn’t left unsaid and apologize for the snide remarks we made under our breath.

We are going to work towards letting go of the people that didn’t stick around, shower the ones that did with the affection and attention they deserved, and make room for the people that are on their way to us this coming new year.

So whether you’re a Christmas caroler or simply basking in the excitement of the festive season, we’ve come up with a list of goodies that we believe would make the perfect gift to the people that stayed by our side this entire year.

Lifestyle of the Broke and Beautiful

“And now, I’m just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time.”

― Lady Gaga


 

Sometimes life just isn’t as smooth sailing as it should be.

Often times, your overdue bills, delayed paychecks, project deadlines and severely worn-down, blister-inducing shoes demands your attention all at once and you have to cut back on your time and money.

Going through the week with a tiny pocket, clinging on to any extra nap time with projects on the side is definitely a scenario I’ve been through one too many times than I’d actually like to admit.

Cutting back is not fun, but it surely gave me an opportunity to get crafty and actually force me to be a smarter consumer.

From my own experience, here are some of the things I have coveted, discovered and fell in love with on one of my many penny-pinching, deadline-dreading days.

by Laetitia Wong

You hardly ever see solid Halloween brands in Singapore, do you? I’ve always wondered how cool it’d be to turn up to an October 31st party in your own garb, sans costume, but Halloween-themed. Honestly, we’re just praying that Australian brand Black Milk Clothing will be coming to Singapore soon.

Just check out their new Lady Anarchy line – From macabre blood splatters to sketchy haunted house leggings, the only thing keeping Martha Stewart from wearing these is well… nothing.
