How to Style Your Everyday Dresses

I’ve uploaded plenty of #ootd on my instagram and Facebook but I realized I’ve never done a lookbook kind of thing, so here’s one today! I have 3 pieces from Tobi and I will be showing you how to style all of them.

A black dress is a must have in a lady’s wardrobe, and this piece can easily be worn as a casual piece or even to a wedding dinner if you like It all depends on what other accompanying pieces you put together with.

I really love the back detailing. Very intricate and this piece is so versatile and stretchable plus the tie back lace for you to decide how tight you want the dress to be, it can fit from a size XS to M easily.

While the entire piece in front is just black, what you can do to change the look is to layer on accessories.

How to change the entire look?

You may put on a sleek black pair of heels, have an updo for your hair, and wear a statement dangling pair of earrings to glam up the entire look and pucker up with red lipstick which will essentially bring this dress from day to night.

Spring summer dress look. I love floral designs so when it comes to dresses, anything with floral always catches my eye. Since I just came back from Korea, I am a little inspired by the fashion over there from people on the streets as well as Korean celebrities.

I like the light material of the dress and it is super flowy. A dainty piece indeed! To add some pump into it, throwing on a denim jacket works 100%.

This structured denim jacket is from La Bella Vita, an online store from Singapore but they are not in operations anymore.

I took this denim dress to Korea with me on my recent trip and I’m so glad I brought it! While the weather is really nice and cool, it was still essential to cover up my legs as the night will be much colder. Even on rainy days in Singapore, you can consider wearing this dress with knee length boots or you can change the look as well by wearing a pair of heels or sneakers. It is really up to you and what occasion you’re wearing this dress for. I brought along my jacket in case the night turns cold. 🙂

Disney X Coach Collection Launch

Hello there! Today’s post is about the upcoming Disney X Coach Collaboration and boy, I’m looking forward to see the launch which is happening on 24 June in Singapore!

You see, I’m a huge fan of Disney, ranging from the cartoons to going to various countries’ Disneyland just to relive childhood, therefore, this collab is definitely something worth going ga-ga over.

What I like about this collab is that Coach, being a designer brand, spells things with a touch of class. Thus, don’t expect anything too kiddy and I promise you what you’re about to see are all wearable for grown ups. Plus, the collab is solely on Mickey Mouse, yes the iconic mouse from Disney and nothing else, so if you’re a Mickey Mouse lover, you need to get this! I’ve selected what I like from this series to share with all of you.

Starting off, this is my favorite of the lot. This is the Mickey Dinky Crossbody in Glovetanned Leather. I like that the bag is very wearable on a day to day basis, depending on what you like to pair it with. I pretty much like how the bag is styled because the leather jacket and pants make this look kinda rugged and cool and this is probably how I will pair it as well. However, I can also imagine pairing the bag with a dainty long dress and the good thing about this is that the strap is detachable, therefore, you can even use it as a clutch. The size of the bag is just nice for me, so yes, this is definitely a bag I see myself carrying.

There are 5 colours available for this bag and they are chalk, black, red, flax and 1941 saddle. The whole of this series come mainly in these 5 colours, with some designs coming in only like 2 colours and etc. This is one of the bag which carries all 5 colours.

While picking a bag, what is printed on the bag is something important isn’t it? For me, I chose chalk not only because I like the colour, but also because I think the Mickey is cute. He looks like he is jumping or his butt got poked and he jumped up in the air and I actually think that is cute. The one in black is also nice in terms of its colour because it is something that is extremely easy to match and I love the contrast in the colour of the trimmings. However, if you look closely, the Mickey looks crossed and I don’t want to look at my bag feeling crossed all the time. Lol…

Of course, if you were to ask me, it makes more sense for someone to get it from the US but unless you know of someone or yourself is heading there, to save the hassle, just get it in Singapore.

Second favourite item is this Mickey Kisslocked Bag in Glovetanned Leather. This bag is a no brainer for Mickey fans. The ears tell it all. It is eye-catching and the spotlight will definitely be on your bag.It’s a tough choice to choose what colour I will take but I think I’m going with red, for I like the added touch of the bag tag and the whole colour scheme is contrasting and pretty. Red, black and white.

Since I’ve mentioned the bag tag, here are the 4 Mickey Profile Hangtag in Glovetanned Leather. I will choose the first on the left. No apparent reason, I just like this.

A  saddle bag frees you from holding anything in your hands and it is crossbody, which makes it perfect for use in case you’re afraid of snatch thieves especially if you travel to a country with lesser security.

Here’s presenting to you the Mickey Saddle Bag in Glovetanned Leather. This comes in 4 colours and I will pick the 1941 saddle colour because a saddle bag needs to be in saddle colour. Pun intended.

I’m just kidding. Why I picked the 1941 saddle colour  is because I do honestly like saddle bags although I don’t actually own one. Think cowboys, boots and horses will ya? It seems like the right colour for a saddle bag plus the Mickey is wearing white gloves and the white really stands out. While the rest are beautiful as well, I’m going for the 1941 saddle please.

I don’t own any backpacks, except for times when I was in school because no one will want to steal your textbooks and notes unless you’re top in your class or cohort and I’m not one of them. While backpacks are great as it evens out the weight on both shoulders, I’m someone who may not be all that alert and I don’t want to find out that someone has taken things out from my bag without my knowledge. Moreover, I’m mostly in clothings without any pockets, which means it makes it difficult for me to reach for my phone if I’m using a backpack and I need to keep my phone in my bag. Otherwise I will forever be holding on to my phone in my hands and one day if it slips my mind, I may eventually forget to take my phone because I’m busy browsing the Disney x Coach collection in the boutique and I happily forget about my phone.

That being said,all points above are just pointing to me as an individual, though I can’t help but gush at the Mickey Rainger Backpack in Glovetanned Leather this collab has because it looks so classic! I selected this to put on my blog because I think they are nice looking, just that it isn’t meant for me. There are two sizes available in the US but only one size is available in Singapore. This is pretty much unisex so you can even get them like a couple bag maybe?

The Mickey Crossbody Clutch in Glovetanned Leather is up next. Comparing to the Mickey Dinky Crossbody, I prefer the latter because it has an interlock opening whereas the clutch is a double zip bag. It is still nice, but if I were to get one, I will still go for the Dinky. I’m picking this colour Flax because I think the Mickey image goes well with the clutch and hey, he is roller blading!

A smaller item on the list includes this dainty Mickey Envelope Key Pouch. Comparing the 4 colours available from US but Singapore carries only 3 colours, I’m picking Chalk as the contrast looks better, with Mickey’s yellow shoes and its interior is also yellow. Time to store my keys properly maybe?

The Mickey Skinny Tote in Glovetanned Leather acts as a great document bag for some jazz to an outfit. Work outfits need not necessarily be boring when you have some grown up Mickey on it. It is still classy looking but there’s a tinge of childlike in you.

I’m going for the colour 1941 Saddle because I think I’m just biased against the angry Mickey in black. Moreover, it is nice for a change to ditch black an opt for some neutrals instead. Like the model, you can actually match a mustard top or bottom and it all blends in quite well.

Fancy a pair of Mickey C101 sneakers? 2 pictures above shows the model’s styling with the Mickey silhouette while the one below shows the Mickey yellow shoe. I think it’s fun because you can sort of customize to your outfit with the additional purchase of the Mickey Hangtag Set of 4. Ssneakers are generally great for walking and I can’t say no to functional and stylish shoes can you?

This is what I’ve mentioned, the Mickey Hangtag Set. You can hook on almost anything or if you like, you can even hook it onto a chain or choker and it becomes a pendant. There is no hard and fast rule about the usage I guess, it all boils down to your imagination and fashion sense.

Yes, yes and yes to a Mickey Motto Jacket!!! I’m a sucker for one and I’m always on the lookout for unique designs. I would wanna think that Mickey’s got my back you know, quite literally. Enough said.

One of the priciest of the lot.

For a lady who loves charm bracelets (and I am one), this calls out to you. While charms are like girlish and all, I like that the Mickey Charm Bracelet comes in a mix of gold and black, which is every bit classy and think Great Gatsby. The bad thing is that although there’s a chain to hook for different wrist sizes, you’re pretty much bound by the size of the bangle. I won’t reckon this is a one size fits all but I think you really need to try on to have a feel of it.

I’m certainly loving these Mickey Bookmark in Glovetanned Leather for I’m a bookworm actually. I can’t tell you how many bookmarks I have and I can’t seem to use them all, but I keep buying like nobody’s business.

If I have to pick one only, I will choose the one with the glove. You know why? If I happen to be reading a book with numbers, it might point me to some inspiration numbers and who knows, I might strike a lottery because of it! Totally kidding. I like the uniquely shaped glove. Yup.

As I’ve not chosen anything black yet, I’m finally picking one item out- Mickey Luggage Tag in Glovetanned leather because it will be on my luggage and if it is on my check-in luggage,, it needs to be back or else my luggage tag will turn out really dirty after taking a plane ride.

I don’t think anyone can be crossed if you’re going on a leisure holiday trip would ya?

I like the fact that this collection added in things for home use and because I am getting my own place soon, I’ve been looking at home items. Isn’t the Mickey Coaster Set something you want your guests to take note of when they’re at your home? The coasters come in a set of 6.

Mickey 32

Retail price

SGD450, USD200

I wanna sit on a Mickey Bean Bag!!! Looks pretty cool for home and not too cutesy but the not too good thing is that if there happen to be any insect or like cockroach on it, I’m sorry you may not be able to see it. That’s the theory I have and have been telling my husband not to get any black rugs or carpet so that if there happen to be any insect, I will be able to tell immediately. Otherwise, this bean bag makes a very good home accessory.

Mickey 31

Retail price

SGD2600, USD1500

Last but not least, the collectors item- Large Mickey Doll. You need this to put on your bed, as a display piece, maybe in your car if you like. There’s a Mickey Bag Charm as well (not featured here).

Mickey 39

Retail price

SGD2600, USD1500

The one above is the large and they do have small and medium, in different colour clothings. Of course, the price for the smaller ones are cheaper too.

There are still a number of items I’ve not listed as I only picked those that I like. By ‘like’ it means that it is worth mentioning because it looks good, but my cash don’t drop from the sky. I simply gave my most honest opinion of all the products here.

If you like what you’ve read, don’t keep my blog a secret. Share with your friends and all Mickey lovers!

Xoxo,

Sharon
