It All Began with a Rose...

Hello everyone!

So, Valentine's day is over. We hope you enjoyed yourself (whether you're single, attached, married, or in a complicated relationship). Christine and I spent our V-day (or rather, night) seeing off our friend, Hannah, at Changi Airport. Thus, we thought it might be apt to do a OOTD post since it has been a while since we did one together. Plus, Christine received a rose from a recruiting event in school, which made a pretty nice V-day prop(thus the title of this post) :D

Firstly, here's a rose kiss from the lovely Christine!
 So, here's Christine's OOTD! She wore this to school and you can tell she's in the romantic mood. That day, she wore a lace chiffon top that is both feminine and soft. She matched it with an equally soft pair of drawstring black shorts. To make the outfit look less slack and more put together, she wore knee high socks with a pair of black combat boots. It was a good thing she wore boots too as it was pouring heavily when she left school.

Outfit-Top, ChicwishShorts, F21; Socks, NA; Shoes, Nastygal, Shoecult, Necklaces, I AM (Jem @ Jurong East); Rings, Small random shops; Watch: Fossil; Hairtie, H&M (Haha). MakepLips- Lips, NYX Matte Lip Cream (Amsterdam)

For her makeup, Christine decided that red lips are the way to go for Vday! Red is the go to colour for many and here she's using NYX's matte lip cream in Amsterdam. I'm so happy that Christine has finally seen that red lips are not just for 'aunties'. I still remember the days when she'll chide me for my obsession with finding the perfect red lip shade, among my many other quirks. Red lips not only make a great fashion statement, they will also bring colour and life to pale skinned people..

Now it's my turn. For my OOTD, I wore the striped long-sleeved shirt that I got from Hong Kong (read  about them in my Hong Kong Haul post). To achieve the minimalist look, I chose black pants, which let the stripe top stand out. I end my outfit off with my current favourite pair of shoes, which I also got from my recent HK trip.
Outfit- Top, Kwai Fung; Pants, H&M, $20; Shoes, Hong Kong; Bucket bag, Bangkok, $8. Makeup- Eyeliner, Canmake's Quick Easy Liner; Eyebrows, Benefit's Brows-zing Palette; Cheeks, Benefit's Coralista; Concealer, Revlon Colorstay.
Makeup wise, I put on very little as it was a good skin day. Thus I just put on sunblock, a little concealer and some blush. For blush, I'm using Benefit's Coralista, which is one of those pinks that looks natural on my slightly tanned skin. I think this blush is great for spring because it gives a fresh but natural makeup look. I also drew my brows and did a subtle cat eye. I like going for the 'no makeup' makeup look on most days. Plus, it only takes me less than 10 minutes to do it.

Anyway, that's all of our short post! How did you spend your v-day? We'd love to know. Instagram/Tweet us your v-day outfits if you'd like. It would be great to share outfit ideas :) (Twitter @ChapalangGirls)

Till next time,
Love
El and Christine   xoxo
