OOTD: Faded Dream

1

I don’t know, but there’s just something about the colour of lavender that makes me weak and impulsive. When I saw this dress, it was like love at first sight. I was lucky enough to grab it before it quickly sold out everywhere!

This is like the epitome of feminine and sophistication. I must admit, I felt pretty classy in this dress haha. And I paired the subtle shade with neutral tones to harmonise with the lilac. When going for this type of shade, keep it light and simple – don’t over do it.

I reckon this outfit is perfect for rocking at a wedding (ceremony and/or reception!)

OOTD: Classy Casual

2 Sorry for the mini blog hiatus! Jenny has been feeling under the weather as of late and I have been super busy with work and other exciting projects that I can’t wait to share with you all very soon! Today I decided to share with you all a cute little number that I would love to wear on a more casual occasion, whether it is dinner with friends or your partner, or to a casual low-key party…

Jeans. They are the epitome of casual. But with this ensemble, I have paired my trusty navy skinny jeans from Bardot and dressed it up to create a more casual chic appearance. To do so, I wore my fave minimalistic heels from Lipstik, stacked on my rings and went full on with my hair and make up courtesy of Amy Chan Hair and Make-Up.

To add some texture to my outfit, I wore a white crochet top from H&M and I stuck to white to match my heels and make it stand out in contrast to the navy. And what goes really well with white and navy together? …Brown. So I finished the look with my mini brown satchel!

OOTD: Nautical in the City

ootd_jenny_nautical_0012

Hello everyone! I’m finally back with a new post. So sorry for my absence of late, but I’ve been really under the weather the past few weeks, and I’m slowly regaining enough energy and health to start getting back into work in the last couple of days. Even now, I’m still not 100% so do bear with me! The good news is that Jillian has been regularly posting on the blog and instagram in my absence so hopefully you’ve been enjoying her summer content! :D

I wanted to share with you an outfit I’ve put together that is 100% nautical inspired, but totally suitable to be worn not just by the sea, beach, or water, but also in the city as I live in a big metropolitan city myself :)

Continue reading

As you all would know, blue and white have always been style staple colours of mine, so it is always fun to play with new pieces that experiment with these shades such as this Yacht21 off the shoulder striped top, and this super comfy and affordable pair of white jeans from Uniqlo, paired with one of my favourite blue bags and zara heels :)

Now, alot of people think that off the shoulder tops are only for slim people, and that white jeans should only be worn if you have stick skinny legs – not true!! I am not afraid to admit that I have size 36.5″ hips (crazy I know, but I just want to show you that its not about size – it is all about finding the right cut and fabrics when it comes to shopping for clothes that really suit your body). I love that these jeans from uniqlo were so soft, had stretchy material, and its waistline was low, but not too close to the hip so it was very flattering. And paired with this really elegant off the shoulder striped top from Yacht21, it meant that my less-than-ideally-toned arms were well conceived but still showing enough skin in all the flattering areas like the shoulders and the forearms without ever stepping into the ‘skanky’ territory :P As you would all know, our brand here at Two Threaded Poppies is ALL about classiness, elegance and style while being appropriately modest :) Yes! It’s totally possible to be stylishly womanly and beautiful without needing to wear clothes that make you look cheap or sleazy. And trust me when I say that guys love this kind of style. While they look at women who dress less than appropriately, they remember ladies who dress with class and elegance like Audrey Hepburn :)

Less is more! :)

For those wanting to find where Yacht21 is sold, head on over to THIS POST to find all the outlets and places online you can buy this piece :D

Again, as always we want to say and 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 in. 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 lovely rest of the week!! :D

OOTD: Little Black Dress

4

I hope you all had a great start to the new year and that the holidays were well enjoyed! Both Jenny & I have had a busy start to 2015, yet it’s been great. We’re slowly working on some exciting things which we can’t wait to share with you in the near future :) In the meantime, I’ve put together a nice little OOTD number for some inspiration when you don’t really know what to wear or how to style things for a special occasion…

If you’re going for that minimalist kind of look, when you want to look nice and classic, yet not too overdressed and flashy, then this is a nice approach which I have put together. This is something I wore to my friend’s 21st birthday recently and I just wanted to keep it clean and simple, so I chose this cute little black dress from The Fifth Label that I fell in love with when I saw it and paired it with minimal heels in white to give the outfit some contrast.

Going further along with the contrasting theme, I added a neutral clutch that was an in between off white and cream just to balance out the black and brighten up the outfit a little more. For jewellery, again, I kept it simple and wore my favourite pieces from Wanderlust & Co.

And there you have it! This is how I would style my little black dress to a party or special occasion if I’m going for something a little more muted and subtle.

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
