yellow brick road

Hi everyone!  Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Singapore is currently in the dry phase of the monsoon season and the haze has been returning which makes it even worse.

However last weekend was still mild and a great weather and I had a wedding to attend to at the beautiful resort hotel Capella Hotel.

I have stayed here once for a short weekend getaway.  The resort is very calming and quiet, very luxurious. Um, okay and on the expensive side but it was worth it.

So back to the wedding. Since it was a lunch wedding I decided to wear my favorite yellow dress.  For sandals I wore Giuseppe Zanotti. I have kept this sandals for years because I met him back in 2006 and it was specially designed for me by Mr Zanotti himself. So honored!

Then at the hotel lounge I came across a beautiful painting I instantly fell in love with. Also matching my dress haha.

Don’t you love it when you find beautiful paintings?

Sri Lanka:: dreamy night

I just returned from my trip to Sri Lanka. What a trip. 3.5 hour drive from the hotel to the airport, 3 hours before check-in and another 4 hours on the plane back home. But what it was a dreamy and a beautiful wedding. It seemed like the whole village came to see the festive wedding as there was dozens of cute little tuk tuks decorated with white roses and even an elephant to celebrate the newly weds. I love going to weddings. It makes you feel so happy and cherish the small things in life.

It was a beautiful sunny but breezy day so I thought of going for something bright and Sri Lanka-ish style. Pulled out my old Giuseppe Zanotti shoes which was designed by Mr. Zanotti for each guests who was invited to the opening of his flagship store in Tokyo many years ago.  He was such a gentleman and very friendly person who had a great passion for shoes. So inspiring… I still kept the design sketch because for somehow he had colored my shoes yellow which coincidentally happens to be my lucky color.

So I went with a yellow dress from the brand I really like, Issa London.

I love the fact that their dresses are not too formal but elegant and comes in silk fabric. I cannot say no to anything that is silk. The after party went pretty wild with great live music by the pool side. Which meant stay away from the pool when the party starts to get crazy! I guess for some people who got enough booze? decided to just go with it. Jump in the pool with their Armani/ Hugo Boss suits.

As for me, I called it a night just around 1am. Champagne, wine, dance… bonne nuit!
