VieCouture Style Focus: Watches

Filed under Jewelry & Accessories 

by Vie on September 17, 2013

With so many advanced and hi-tech gadgets in the market, more and more ladies leave their watch at home, because they can check the time on their phone, iPad or other smart devices. Little do they know that watch is considered to be a prime accessory. Not only for the functionality but also for the fashion value. This gives me enough reason to make watches as the style focus for today, and I have Ernest Jones to thank to. This UK based company offers more than just designer watches but also high quality jewelry. So here are some of good looking watches that I find from the site, watches so divine you can wear them day or night.

1. Fun and Fancy.

If you consider yourself a fun and fancy kind of girl, you should go for a strap/leather watch. Take these watches for example, Vivienne Westwood, Folli Follie and Marc Jacobs — not only do they look fashionably stylish but at the same less formal, which is the look you want to achieve. Such a perfect sidekick for your daily activities!

2. Formal and Elegant.

Nothing beats formal and elegant than a good shine of gold and silver, which is why you would want to circle these watches if that’s the case. I like Tissot for the unique circle chains, Folli Follie for the glamorous pave crystals and DKNY for the soft and elegant rose gold color. They blend beautifully in your office meetings or high-end parties.

3. Smart and Casual.

Going casual is always a smart choice, especially if you look for comfort. For this type of style, you can count on these 3 designers to bring you not only fashion but also function. That’s right ladies, these watches serve their purpose right — giving you daily comfort and at the same time, bring out the high-style in you.

Oatmeal Magic: Say Goodbye to Your Rashes

Filed under Beauty 

by Vie on September 16, 2013

A few weeks ago, I had serious rashes on my face — particularly on my cheeks. I wasn’t really sure what caused them, whether it was sunburn or others. I refused to go and see doctors because I know they will prescribe me some anti-biotics and soothing cream. Since I’m more of a natural kinda girl, I did some research on safe and natural remedy for rashes and found several recommendations; aloe vera, vitamin E, and oatmeal came on top of the list. So I decided to go for oatmeal because they’re easy to find and relatively cheap. After applying the oatmeal mask for about a week, my rashes are totally gone. Natural remedies may take more time to work but the result would be amazing and normally they don’t have any side effect, which is good!

Oatmeal

So, here’s what you do:

1. Scoop 3 tea-spoons of oatmeal in your bowl and pour a little bit of hot water.
2. Stir it up evenly and make sure it’s not too watery or too thick.
3. Wait until it cools off to room temperature.
4. Apply the oatmeal on the rashes area and wait for 10-15 minutes.
5. Wipe them gently and rinse with clean water.

I started doing this twice a day — in the morning and in the evening and trust me, ladies, you won’t believe how amazing the result is and judging from the time-frame I had, it only took me a week to get my smooth skin back. Not bad at all, right?

Casino Royale: How to Look Like a Casino Goddess

Las Vegas TV Series

If there’s one TV series that I never get tired of, it will be Las Vegas. Not only do they have drama, romance and action, but also a few tricks and tips on gaming and gambling. However, the fun doesn’t end there, you are also offered with fabulous fashion and beautiful people. So if you plan on going out for a casino night, you can definitely learn a thing or two from this show. And if Las Vegas isn’t enough for you, there’s always James Bond movies that offer you brilliant casino fashion. Take the classic 1971 “Diamonds are Forever” or the newer Bond in 2006’s “Casino Royale” for example. Low-cut dresses, elegant hairdo and some serious looking jewelry. May I say that the Bond girls looked absolutely stunning.

Diamonds Are Forever 1971

So, it’s obvious that there’s a lot to talk about when it comes to casino fashion and today I’m gonna give you a little bit of recommendations on what to wear. As we all know, there are different types of casinos. Those with the casual/smart dresscode and those who only welcome formal dresses and suits. If you like playing dress up, then go for the high-end formal casinos.

Ladies, this is the time when you want to look as glamorous as possible, because casino is not just about the game, it’s a lifestyle and a place where you can show off your high-fashion trend, think of this as one of those red-carpet moments. So, I would recommend you wearing your famous cocktail dress and color your lips red (if possible). Another thing you would want to consider is definitely some eye-catching jewelry and accessories. So if you decide to go for your classic little black dress, do yourself a favor and crown your neck with some shiny blings. However, bear in mind that you shouldn’t give yourself too much stress when dressing up, because the purpose of going out to a casino is to have a good time. And remember one of the golden rules in fashion — less is more! you’re not a walking mannequin, so do not overdress yourself. Be elegant and at the same time, approachable. Here are some of the examples I would go for:

The only thing I don’t have is the iPhone, this is because I need to have dual-sim card phone and unfortunately Apple doesn’t have a dual-sim phone (yet) and I hope they will have this in the future! But for now, we can pamper our girly needs with their latest product, the iPhone 5c. By the end of this month, all Apple fans can get their hands on this lovely little phone. iPhone 5c is released to replace the iPhone 5 that is now being discontinued.

Spring 2014 RTW: Mellow Yellow

Filed under Fashion,News, Tips & Trends 

by Vie on September 6, 2013

There’s no doubt that Spring is my favorite season of the year and that’s why I’m always excited whenever Style covers the Spring collection on the runways. New York recently had the honor to be the witness of Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection from high-end designers such as Tadashi Shoji, Red Valentino, Zac Posen and Robert Rodriguez. For this future season, you’ll see lots of yellow decorating the catwalks, from the softest pale to the shocking neon color, Spring 2014 is all about being mellow in yellow! What I like about yellow is that this color goes with pretty much any skin color, and it’s so refreshing, fun and merry.

Here are some of the collection that totally caught my attention!

Spring Ready to Wear 2014

We all know how powerful Tadashi Shoji is when it comes to dressing up the ladies. This man surely knows how to let his imagination runs free when it comes to blending beautiful materials such as lace, chiffon and silk altogether. I’ve never been disappointed by any of his collection so far. Whether you want to play couture or “ready-to-wear” style, Shoji is the man. Same thing goes to Red Valentino, whenever you want to stand out in the crowd looking femininely pretty, this brand is the one you need to look for. For this season, Red Valentino is being playful with their short skirts, little bows and cute girly flats. As for Tocca, I’m rooting for this brand for the simplicity and everyday look. Not every girl can pull off polkadots but if you’re an exception, then this yellow dot dress is totally adorable, don’t you think?

Spring Ready to Wear 2014

Another designer that knows how to hug the women’s curves is definitely Zac Posen. I’m a big fan of his shoes and of course his dresses. Dare to be bold and beautiful? Then this yellow canary dress is totally yours. Josie Natori is know for her down-to-earth and semi casual collection, this greenish-yellow dress is super adorable and I absolutely dig the chunky necklace! When it comes to fashionable and stylish office-look, Veronica Beard holds the key. I must say I’m not too familiar with this designer but having seen some of her showcase, I’m quite impressed and I love this new look of hers. It’s edgy and totally favorable as your daily work outfit!
