Holly Jean's Must-Haves for 2010



(Click on the pics to view the item details/prices/etc. )




Monochrome just means one colour scheme. Monochromatic dressing makes everybody look slimmer and taller instantly. Plus, it's always elegant, and it's an extremely easy way to dress. I use this look whenever I have events to go to and I want to look good without looking too loud.

It's a very simple colour palette but use texture and pattern to add interest to a monochromatic look.
............................................................................................


This spring-summer, white is a staple. Plus it suits practically everyone.. it shows off a nice tan, illuminates fair skin... I love white! Going on a nice dinner date? A little white dress is a classic choice for understated elegance and charm.
I'm wearing a light flowy babydoll halter (that readers picked out for me a while ago).

Choose sexy draping for a date night out, or a casual sundress for a relaxed day.

.....................................................................................................
Sheer fabric is back! Breezy see-through fabrics, from delicate chiffons to gauzy knits are making their way into my wardrobe. Sheer is great for all occassions, and with the right layering, it's a great look for meetings and work.


Now, don't go All Lady Gaga and don't dress Skanky Sexy Indecent Sheer like in the 90s! This season's sheer is all about draping, panels and layers.
.......................................................................................................


Along with the Spring staple of white, there are a lot of bright and bold colors that make a statement. Dresses of one solid bold colour make the ultimate party dress. It brightens your look and turns heads.

Get a bold party piece in your favourite colour.

For a casual day out, whether you're walking the dog, having a picnic, or shopping with the girls, casual tanks... are soooo comfy, but give them a twist with some embellishment, print or detailing.

I have ettusais who will sponsor your make up, ClubCouture who will sponsor your clothes and a photographer who will take your pics. You can keep all the stuff after the shoot! Basically, I'll be guiding you through a day in my life sorta thing. I'm sure you'll enjoy the pampering and it will be a fun experience for all of us. Sounds like fun?? Stay tuned!!

    How did you managed to lose weight so fast?

    I was looking at your pics just late last year blog posts and your pics these last few months blog posts and you are much much much skinnier.

  5. @iwantsummer - yes. the discount applies to overseas addresses too. knock yourself out babe! :)

    @rinaz... yes it does.. I'm excited

    @11.14 &qooqoo- I know.. I haven't lost THAT much weight in kilos (2 kgs) but it kinda dropped off within a couple of weeks in late feb this year. I didn't do anything specific to lose it.. but I suspect it might be stress/change of lifestyle/ change of routine.

    i am eating abt the same amount as before. If anything.. I am getting more calories now as my mom keeps trying to fatten me up lol.

    I dunnoe.. maybe I might put the weight back on.. or maybe my body will just naturally maintain 46kgs for a while...and this is my new norm (hope so!!)

    I think you look great at this current weight actually ^^ Any less would be too much and you did look a little chunky at your past weight... Now, perfect ^^

    A little chunky? You're joking right? Maybe to someone with a severe eating disorder.

    Holly jean,

    you look great in ClubCouture clothes. Pardon my ignorance but may I know where is this company from? Is it our local Singaporean brand or a US brand?
