High waisted pencil skirt

I think every girl should own at least one high-waisted pencil skirt. It's just so flattering to your hips and attention seeking, as it is able to accentuate your curves and make you look ultra feminine and sexy. Think of pencil skirt and you will have Kim Kardashian in the picture. She loves her curves and is not afraid to show 'em off.

My new purchase from Pagani!

You could pair it with low V-neck collared shirt and look formal but modern at the same time. Sexy office lady look ;)

Kim Kardashian looking ravishing in her ruffle pencil skirt, pairing it with her matching nude pumps and white round-neck tight tee.

Miranda Kerr looking sassy in black pencil skirt and animal print blouse.

I personally like to pair it with a color contra tube top, suitable for a great night-out. Afterall, what better way to live up the sexy theme!

One of my favourite fashion lines, Marchesa brings out a combination of grace, romance and edge to its collection, timeless and totally admirable!

Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman.

Smurfs and Smurfette

I'm absolutely going gaga over Smurfs and Smurfette now!

The pop star - Katy Perry channeling her inner Smurfette with her icy blue makeup, Smurfette cocktail dress and nails. Absolutely adorable!

Hit or miss?

Smurfs nail colors! Live the Smurfs spirits up!

Having a bad hair day?

You wake up and you hair feels crappy. No spray and blowdryer could do magic unless you give it a good wash. You look in the mirror and you are dragged down. Sounds familiar? Fret not! Quick simple hairdo below could transform your looks and are good mood-lifting tools too!
Hair-up in a bun, throw on a headband like Jessica Alba. Emphasise on your eye-make up, don't forget a few layers of mascara and neat eyebrows, you immediately look fresh and bright. Wear a shoulder baring top, you'll feel instantly light and groomed. You can forget bout adding earrings as it just complicates your look. Go minimalist.
Kim Kardashian famous hairbun look. You could replicate this look anyday to avoid the boring hairdown.
Nicole Kidman in her hair plaits. Real easy to tie and makes you look real feminine. It's a great way to curl and wave your hair too.

You can wear your hair plaits differently, have fun experimenting with different styles and pairing with pretty earrings.

The Color Gold

This post is inspired by Kim Kardashian's newly launched perfume, "Gold".

She looks absolutely dazzling in the color, blending in nicely with her even tone tanned skin. The color gold does a magical touch to your look, and I especially love the color when I attend a formal function. It brings out the elegance in you, regardless whether you are fair or dark-skinned.

However, beware when you match your gold dresses, accessories or heels as color combination is key. I personally think you could never go wrong with gold and black or red. Here's how, stealing from Jessica Alba and Jennifer Garner.

Gold with black = Elegant & Classy
Red with gold = Alluring & Attractive

Plain Jane No More

Many of us are caught with what I call the "Plain Jane" bug, refusing to pick up that piece of accessories to give an instant polished look. Believe me, it takes a little effort but it does wonders to your mood, how you feel about yourself and instinctively, the way you carry yourself.

It doesn't have to be much, just make sure the next time before you head out the door, grab  any of the following items on your way out.

Head accessories

Leighton Meester in her pink flowery head band.

Ear accessories

A pretty earring will add a feminine touch to your look, just like Angelina Jolie in her emerald earrings.

Neck accessories

A v-shape necklace gives an illusion of a smaller face contour

Hand accessories
You may keep it simple on one hand with your watch and the other with some designer bangles.

These cocktail rings are especially handy when it comes to showcasing your pretty manicured hands
I will leave you with a quote to inspire you - "I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny." — Coco Chanel
