Bijoux Collection Featuring Olivia Burton Watches

Hello friends!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week so far! I’ll be updating you all on what motherhood has been like in my next post (mainly completely sleep deprived and I’m able to do this post thanks to some wonderful help that came in the last few days!), but in the meantime, I wanted to quickly share with you something fabulous that Jillian and I received in the mail recently! :D

Before I continue though, I wanted to have a quick chat about brand integrity. I know alot of you wonder, if Jillian and I just talk about products we get paid to talk about. The answer is NO. You can be assured, for those who have wondered and asked, we ONLY ever feature pieces that we stand by 100%. Which means, we will only ever share with you brands, accessories, and products that we LOVE completely. We are not into collaborations or features where we would never buy/pay money for or wear on our own accord. So you can relax and know that our posts are 100% genuine whether they are sponsored or not (most are not as we are just two excited sisters who have a passion for beauty and want to share it with the rest of you out there!), as we only ever partner with brands that we know you will LOVE as much as we do! Here at Two Threaded Poppies, we are completely about quality, and being genuine, real, and authentic!

Anyway, onto the stuff we got in the mail recently (ie. The watches pictured below) :D

As you all already may or may not have noticed, Jillian and I adore pieces that are timeless, classic, and beautiful. And if you have been paying attention to our instagram feed, you will know that even the time pieces we choose to wear have to fit under that umbrella. So you can imagine how over the moon we were to receive some of Olivia Burton’s watches from their new range! :D Now, from our instagram, you know I already own the Big Dial rose gold and tan leather piece, and Jillian already owns the Midi Dial in Rose Gold and White leather. Both purchased from Bijoux Collection Australia and since we shared the photos of those, alot of you went out to buy and find these pieces to join our Olivia Burton love which made us so happy as this beautiful boutique brand is so underrated! We are mindful of the many other popular fashion watch brands on the market these days, but Olivia Burton watches are so gorgeously feminine, vintage, and classic looking. They have pieces that range from the simple and minimalistic , to the more opulent kind with floral embellishments  – ALL of which never get too over the top. Always remaining timeless and classic!

We’re such fans that owning a second piece each, has been a no brainer! Especially with the launch of their new range.

I ended up getting this one below (the Big Dial Rose Gold with Grey Leather – pink and grey ALWAYS go well together!!):

And Jillian ended up getting this one (The Big Dial Gold with black leather – to follow in her usual love for BLACK :D ):

Thank you so much Bijoux for our beautiful new watches (and the cute surprise pearl earrings in our package! Totally unexpected!!) And to our readers, Bijoux offers $10 off your first purchase with them, so use that if you decide to get yourself an Olivia Burton piece too! I’m already eyeing the Power Blue and Rose Gold one, as well as the Black Dial and Gold if I could get my hands on another :P )

The Dress

-UPDATE-

First of all, I wanted to apologies for this massive hiatus from the blog! I have definitely missed posting on here and it feels great to be back! I have had the most intense first couple months back at uni, juggling a million different commitments and running on little to none sleep! For those who are still unaware, Jenny is pregnant! Which resulted in her feeling unwell during her first trimester, which is why she has been absent from Two Threaded Poppies these past couple of months. But we and our family are still super excited for the baby’s arrival towards the end of the year. When she feels ready, she will be back to post again, but in the mean time I will be taking over the blog (hope y’all don’t mind) :) So today, I have prepared a little book review, of a book I’ve finally had the chance to have a read…

For those who love admiring fashion illustrations and love pretty whimsy and sparkly dresses, this one’s for you. Megan Hess is probably one of my favourite fashion illustrators. Yes, she is super talented at what she does, let’s be honest. But I love her style of illustration… it’s very classic with her modulating brushstrokes and incorporation of interesting textures and prints – a mix of hand and digital rendering. ‘The Dress’ is all about those iconic moments in fashion and how it shaped and moved the fashion world. It’s really interesting to read about the history and background behind these amazing dresses she has illustrated and the intention behind them.

I love how this book is categorised into a few sections: Designers, Icons, Weddings, Music, Film and the Oscars. We get a glimpse of different realms of the fashion world which I find really interesting.

IMG_9833 IMG_9832 IMG_9835Definitely recommend getting this book, because firstly, it’s pretty. Secondly, her illustrations are beautiful to look at… (there’s 100 to look at, come on) and thirdly, these illustrated dresses were designed by the most famous fashion designers in the world, worn by some famous people too, both film and real life, it’s something you don’t want to miss :) You can grab your copy here.

OOTD: Peach Chic

ootddec_jenny01_0014

It’s officially CHRISTMAS!!! That means everyone is busy wrapping presents, making feasts, and gathering with friends and family all over the place. I just love this time of year because everything kind of slows down…. I know it gets busy in terms of social and personal stuff, but really everything else just eases off, and people are concentrating on what matters in life, and that is the people they love :)

Anyhow, we wanted to squeeze in one more post before the festive season begins! This outfit, Im really excited about… as always, we try very hard to remain in the Two Threaded Poppies theme which is elegant, chic, and feminine, but also wanted to try something a little more unique and daring. Yup, I decided to wear culottes. WHAT ARE THOSE? I hear you asking? Well, its basically wide leg pants, cropped. VERY wide haha :) I have to admit I avoided this trend for a very long time because 1) I’m only 5’5″ 2) I’m not the slimmest or leggiest girl out there and 3) I always thought how people paired them was super ugly/busy/unflattering. However, after walking through the racks of Topshop while they were having a 30% off sale, I saw THESE – peach satin culottes, and for some weird reason I had to have them. I knew that if I paired it right, these pants could look really special.

So, in comes my visit to Yacht21 – a boutique clothing brand in Singapore. Jillian and I are big believers in smaller local brands (yes, we do love the major labels too, but when you find something unique and local to a particular place, and its beautiful, and very good quality, I say SUPPORT! :D ) so when we met up with the team to check out their line, I really loved their clean cuts, fresh colours (they brand themselves as resort wear, but honestly, the colours white, blue, pastels and so on are SO versatile you can wear them anywhere), and high quality fabrics which are hand picked by their team before production. Anyhow, I have paired a simple (but delicately detailed) white top from Yacht21 with the culottes. Because the pants are so busy (in the sense that the cut is bold), I wanted something very simple and clean on top – hence the white top from Yacht21. This white top can be worn with so many things – jeans, tucked into a midi skirt, with a pair of washed out denim shorts, etc. Needless to say, I walked away with a bit more than one piece from yacht21 and I’m really looking forward to sharing the images of these pieces in the coming weeks. For now, if you’re wanting to get your hands on some of their pieces, you can click HERE to find out where, or you can drop in personally into their stores in Singapore and Malaysia below :

  1. Bugis Junction Store #02-34
  2. Raffles Exchange #B1-32
  3. Far East Plaza #04-124A
  4. TANGS (Level 1)
  5. ROBINSONS @The Gem (Level 2)
  6. ROBINSON @The Heeren (Level 3)
  7. ROCKSTAR @Cineleisure (Level 3)
  8. ROCKSTAR @Orchard 22
  9. Fabspy – @Mid Valley Megamall (Malaysia)
  10. Bazarro – @Jalan Telawi 2 (Malaysia)

Or purchase online at the following stores:

Anyhow, before I foget, the culottes? If you’re not into white tops, you can also wear this pair of culottes with a fitting black top, or a beautiful black cami. Either way, its a win, and you remain looking chic, elegant and polished! Also, don’t forget to wear a pair of heels! Because I’m not the tallest girl, I’ve decided to wear this outfit with a simple pair of nude pumps (every girls must own a pair of nude pumps! They match just about EVERYTHING under the sun!! :)

Oh and before I end this post, I just wanted to reassure you that all brands we features are carefully curated and chosen by Jillian and myself very selectively. We promise we don’t just simply feature and showcase pieces we don’t believe. They must always adhere to the Two Threaded Poppies standard of beautiful aesthetics (chic, elegant, feminine), quality, and service :)

Enjoy the photos ladies and have a merry christmas!! :D

OOTD: White Summer Elegance

2tp_ootdjenny_03_0007 I’m so sorry there has been this lull and a silence from my side the past few weeks. As mentioned in previous posts, its year end which means its insanely busy… however to top things off, I got ridiculously sick and have been taking time out to recover and recuperate…I’m happy to say that I’m back on solids and starting to feel alot better. You have no idea how relieved and overjoyed I felt when I started feeling hungry again! Yup, appetite is BACK! :D

Continue reading

One of the other things that have kept me very occupied amidst all that is that I’ve been travelling and on the road alot the past few months…. Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Paris…collaborating, shooting, new projects and much more are on the horizon and we’re so excited for next year as there is MUCH that we want to share. How did this year just fly by right?? :D I’ve got ALOT of writing that I want to share once the year end settles down, and I’m really looking forward to that because it will share a lot of pieces I’ve done about love, relationships, self-worth, forgiveness, and more – I hope you will come back and visit when these pieces go up one by one as they will be there to encourage, inspire, and give hope through our amazing God :D

Anyhow, I can’t believe we are in that time of the year where the Christmas trees go up, all I see are mad crazy people all over the shops with a million and one paper bags hanging off their arms, and people are planning their christmas and new year parties! I hope you all have some lovely plans ahead :)

Now, to end, I’d love to share with you a REALLY simple ensemble that can be worn both day and at night, in spring and in summer, to the beach and a wedding and look equally as elegant. It is this floaty white maxi dress. I found it while I was fumbling the racks in Paris in Zara! I have always been very afraid of maxi dresses as I am only 5’5″ with my proportions longer in the torso and shorter in the legs – in summary, I look short :( However, I am a very determined person when it comes to trying styles in every way possible way before eliminating them, so when I finally figured out how to wear maxi dresses without them making me look stumpy, I was so thrilled! The trick is in the waistline ;) Yup, make sure the maxi has a waistline that sits a little higher or just add a thin simple belt that you can tie around your waist, so as to create shape, and the illusion of height. And it helps if the maxi dress is a single colour (or at least single colour lengthways) so that you look taller :)

Anyhow, when I saw this maxi, I knew it would be perfect for something I could wear on a date, to the beach/around a resort, to even to a wedding (provided it is white friendly – some really are! haha I’ve shot some to prove it :D ). I love it because the back detail was really flattering with the X, the material is so light, and it was in my favourite v-neck neckline :) To accesorise, I decided to glam it up so I paired it with a clutch that was handmade for Paris Fashion Week (Jillian and I found it in Paris in the vintage markets and got this amazing price for it!), and some simple black heels. If you want to wear it casually, just wear it with a pair of simple neutral coloured flat sandals, tie your hair up in a loose bun, or wear a white summer hat :D
