Trend: Rose Gold

These days, I think it's pretty obvious that rose gold has become trendy from jewellery to watches, even to metallic shoes. In my eyes, yellow gold will always be classic and traditional and white gold is more modern and edgy, rose gold would something more romantic, reserved for engagement jewellery. Well, now everyone wants that Michael Kors Rose Gold watch...

They say that it flatters all skin tones but I beg to differ. I can see that rose gold would be situated between yellow and white, if there was a scale between which skin tones it flatters most (yellow suits warm and white suits cool). However, I cannot see it working out for me. Rose gold works well with fair-skinned people but I'm not exactly pale. It's not to say that you can't wear it if you're not pale. You could definitely mix rose gold with different tints of gold. 
I believe trends on jewellery tend to last longer than most fashion clothing trends so this will most likely stay for a while. Will I be…

Trendsetter: Scarves

Brrr... Sydney's gotten colder since May has finally kicked in but I don't recall having autumn nights dropping down to 8ÂșC since the last two years. We (my family) never crank up the heater whenever it is cold because we just don't have the need to. Australian winters aren't too cold but it sure has fierce winds. Instead, we just layer up on clothes and bring out our warmest doonas (if you're not Australian, then it's a duvet).

So since the weather's getting colder, I thought I'd do a post on scarves. You guys up in the Northern hemisphere have got so many scarves for spring out there in stores in bright neon and beautiful patterns. We, down under, haven't gotten much advice so I've decided to compile a list of things to look out for. I've said this once before, knitwear never goes out of fashion, especially during winter, nor do scarves. You'll always see scarves every fall/winter.

1. Wool

Wool is perhaps one of the most popular fibres…

Review: Studded Headband

So a little while ago, I had posted up on Dream High 2 and expressed my love for the studded headband. Well, I purchased one from Vintage Hollywood, a brand that a lot of Korean celebrities are spotted wearing.

There aren't many blog posts/ reviews of any purchases from Vintage Hollywood out there (at least in English) and I thought it would be helpful if I had written up one myself, in case if any of you out there have stumbled upon this site or a lured in by what Korean celebrities wear.  It was only recently that Vintage Hollywood had opened up to the international market so that may be why there aren't many reviews out there.

Navigation/Communication: Firstly, when you access the website, you'd be a little intimidated if you cannot understand Korean but there is a link to help those to navigate the website under "Are you a foreigner? Check it out!" This can be accessed from a marquee on the top of the page or by clicking "CHECK BEFORE YOU BUY!" which…
