La Enchanté Spring Collection

So, it's been almost a year since I've started modelling for La Enchanté.
Though, okay la, blogshop modelling isn't not considered as real modelling in my opinion. But all the same, they require similiar hardwork & efforts behind he scenes (or is it just me who needs hardwork cos i don't know how to model? :( lol)

I've attempted several other modelling jobs or blogshop events before this, and flopped badly for some :/
When it goes onto the blogshop site, I just pray n pray that friends won't realise it's me. I can't bear to even bear to view the finished photos on my own, i wonder how the poor photographer endured through the editting. lol.. But also from those, I've learnt about myself more, and surprisingly, understand myself (physically) even deeper. I always thought we all know ourselves best, but turned out that I didn't really.

This is the longest modelling task I've been through and I'm really glad Chee & I worked it out (rather) smoothly! :D Learnt a thing or two about photoshoots, wearing high heels, stopped slouching so frequently, coordinating outfits etc. Sad to say, some of my friends who model for blogshops could even help to edit the photos after the shoots (they know themselves better than the photographer la) but I know nothing much about editting except mei tu xiu xiu n similar sorts! LOL.

I totally remember the awkward moment (or days actually) it was when I first saw my face on a webpage. Dunno why leh, it's just awkward. Probably lack of the confidence and just very afraid that people will criticise and etc. But thankfully, chee insisted, "ahya, people will focus on the clothing only". Come to think of it now, not sure whether she meant it as sarcasm or console, lol!

Now I'm totally used to seeing many of my faces on the site or fb page.
Like this.

It actually doesn't feel like seeing myself anymore. Seriously. I see it as... just another face?
In fact, I'm more focused on the outfits and maybe the hair. Will keep thinking, "oops, never wear the dress properly", "never stand straight to portray the attire", or "oh no, didn't coordinate the outfit to the best they can be", or "wah, why the hair so messy!" :(

The best thing about working with a good friend, you feel so comfortable and at ease even though you might be totally new to the whole event.
In other photoshoot events, there are usually awkward silence (except clicks of the camera) while the photographer is shooting away when I have run out of new poses :/ But with chee, we can sometimes just shoot in comfortable silence. :) Cos ah, you have to understand that it's very tiring to stand in high heels and smile for hours already, so I'm extremely glad we don't have to do small talks like with acquaintances still.. hehe.

I'm also relieved that we are also very understanding of each others' work commitment and schedule. And that we have trust. That way, it makes coordination and many other things easier. I just have one small 'complaint' though - that is I hope that one day when she's able to "reveal" herself and she should totally model the clothings! She's sucha nice smile and slim face (even her own mother agrees haha) la. Whereas, my face keeps getting rounder n rounder :/ arghs

That pretty much sums up my year of modelling for LE.
It's Spring again and La Enchanté's Spring Collection is so yummy!

My favourite from the collection is actually the simplest design of the lot :)
The Camilia skater dress

Camilla skater dress (white)

Camilla skater dress (black)

Love it so much that I got both the white & black!
Wore them out several times already cos it's so easy to match.

Then the royal pleated mini gown.
Wore it for a wedding lunch previously. but i can't find the pic now.. :x

Royal pleated mini gown

Power girl peplum skirt in hot pink!!
And dark topaz for more tone-down or i-want-a-skirt-that-matches-any-tops-so-that-i-can-save-using-my-brains-to-coordinate (what a mouthful) days.
Love both!

Last but not least, the Freyde pleated dress which was a huge sell-out in one of the earlier collections!
C has decided to bring in a new shade, navy! :)

Hoshi Japanese Restaurant @ IMM

Had a pre-celebration with M few days back.
Was feeling girlish so I wore La Enchante cayla dress even though it was a work day :p

Here's how it looks in full :)

Cayla crochet collar dress (black) Size S

There's still size S left!

Was craving for sashimi so we went to the nearest Japanese restaurant :)
Ended at Hoshi @ IMM.

Ordered a set dinner meal at $42+ for 2pax.
Very much worth it!
Changed the sashimi platter to all salmon sashimi.

Wings wth salt.

Came with 2 sets of pork cutlet, rice and soup too.
The pork cutlet was crispy yet not oily.
Portion was huge too, I had to takeaway the remaining so as not to waste so much food! :x

And since we were at IMM, went Daiso to stock up on all the snacks and what's not!
My fav snack from Daiso..
Limited edition flavours ;)

Had photoshoot with C the next day.
The shoot was a lil' awkward due to a change in studio area :x
Maybe cos I'm not professional lah hurhur.
But still, can't wait to get the photos from her!

La Enchante CNY Specials

Words can't describe how excited I was when I look at the upcoming pieces for La Enchante.
Totally swept off my feet!

The CNY specials will be launched on 1 Feb, 9pm :)
Enter promo code: OYHZ during the checkout for 10% off all purchases!

Haven't seen wc for awhile, since our last trip in Nov I think!
So great to be catching up on things during the photoshoot! Esp certain gossips where daily people around me aren't really concerned with. haha :p
Okay la, I'm not a ba gua.. We didn't really gossip. But it just feels good to have someone who knows and understand of that situation, lol.

I think my curls are doing quite well that day!
Now I just need some colour touch-up for the cny. Everywhere's either fully booked or increasing their pricing, where should I go?? :|
Oh for those who were asking, I went to Jean Yip for my perm.
Length like mine is considered as "extra, extra, extra long", quoted from my stylist. 3 'extra's becos he only handles such customers once in 3 months. lol =.=
i thought sg got alot many girls with super long-hair?

Anyway, back to the latest collection.
I wish I can wear all of them if I can! But that would mean I need a....4th wardrobe.
Yes, currently I have 2 huge wardrobes, and a small temporary one. Goshhh.
Must. Stop. Buying. Clothings.

My favourite frock out of the upcoming collection is this!

This is too irresistible, I can't help it but kept one!
Actually prefer the black as it is more contrasting against the white florals.
But the peach one is good for CNY, so I got that instead :D

Wore it for a gathering before.
It's a lovely shade of red :)

Did an instagram post after I received the pics from wc.
Fashion mag frame, so buay paiseh! :X

Frocks with a cute surprise at the back.
I love designs like this! :)

Lace dresses that give such demure, sophisticated looks.

Catch the launch here on 1 Feb 9pm! <3

La Enchante F/W Collection. H&M

I'm sooo into bling bling clothings recently~

Did slightly bling nails too! :)

Some wounds on my index and second last finger due to the removal of my previous hard gel nails.
Never gonna do hard gel nails again. Such a long painful process to remove them :(

Anyway, i'm indeed getting into the festive mood already!
Got lotsa red clothings (for x'mas) as well as knit wears, blazers, leather pieces etc..
Hope I have enough energy (feeling a lil' under the weather) to attend the gatherings at mid/end-month!

If you're interested in getting bling tops or autumn-feel pieces, keep a lookout for La Enchante's collection this weekend!

Received the editted photos from C :)
Featuring a glitter top!

For Jerm's wedding dinner recently.

The silver version :)
Posted these previously when I met up with the girls~

Black leather skirt from the same collection too.
Comes in plum colour too!

Also another skirt that goes so well with the glitter tops!

*hearts* the swirly effect :)

Long sleeves knit top

Which is nicer, Periwinkle or grey?

Of cos, not forgetting everyone's all-time favourite peplum design..
Comes in 4 beautiful colours! Teal green, light pink, nude and black :)

Visited H&M @ Ion recently cos Mr D mentioned that the collection there is more updated and comprehensive as compared to the one at somerset.
Many things caught my eye indeed!
Msged M immediately exclaiming "gosh so many nice stuffs, think i'm gonna spend alot!"

Thankfully, I reminded myself that "ahya I can get something similar from blogshops at a lower price" lol, so managed to narrow down to only 3 items phew.
Bought a dress for upcoming D&D, a basic top and blazer below.

Love the pale blush pink shade and polka dots lining!
There was only 1 size 32 left on the rack, so i grabbed it immediately :x
For normal tops/dresses, I wear size 36/38. But not sure for blazers, it's 32........ machiam very petite liddat. haha!

Kinda like the cream leather biker jacket as well.
But it was at $79.90 and I don't foresee myself wearing it often.. so gave it a miss.
I'm still thinking about it now luh!

La Enchanté Collection 9

New launch by La Enchanté :)
Check out the website by clicking on the banner below!

Okay, I wanna complain that my hair is in a mess AGAIN.
but let's just skip that for more important things, like those the pretty classic pieces launched by La Enchanté this week! Love this collection of dresses, everything's so sophisticated-looking with great materials and yet prices are still kept low & reasonable!

Below are my favourite items from this collection.
I love everything actually! :x Cos this collection is great as my work outfits. 
But I'll highlight only my favourite shade(s) of each design :)

Blaheir Blazer (Black)

Blaheir blazer in black + Lovth Colour-block Minidress in nude pink
Perfect classic staples for your wardrobe! The blazer comes in cream (imo, i would think it's white), black and dusty pink. For this, I took all three :p
The colour-block minidress is cute and at the same time the length is formal enough for casual Fridays in the office or parties. For more petite girls, it's good anytime, anywhere! :)

Like the green one too, for x'mas? :)
Lovth Colour Block Mini Dress (Green)

Playing around with instagram as usual :p

One more suitable for x'mas.
The Christon Leigh dress!
In a slightly louder colour. But I think it's just right for those x'mas day party in office. Simple & elegant design. Or, match with the blaheir blazer for the day in office, take it out for the party at night! 

Christon Leigh Dress (Red)

There's always the safer alternatives :)

Christon Leigh Dress (White)

Christon Leigh Dress (Black)

La Enchante is joining in the peplum fever with the Kath Peplum dress in electric blue and black.
I love the electric blue one!

For OLs looking for a everyday-dress.
The next Moiselle Coco dress would be just the right thing:
(in black)
Moiselle Coco Dress (black)

Comes in different classic combinations of blacks & whites. This number is designed with a slimming effect and the cutting is definitely so flattering!

Last but not least, the Chanelle dress in cobalt blue.

It was actually a tie between the timeless black and the cobalt blue~
The black looks so chic and slightly retro with the cute cubic design, but I thought having slight colours in the office would brighten up the place :) So cobalt blue it is!
Haven't worn it out thou! :)

The Cynthia polka dots crotchet frock is quite a hot-seller too!
Love how it gives off an autumn/winter vibe <3
The pink one I wore below is sold out already!

But no worries, there're still some of the green and navy left, don't miss it again! :)
