As promised, today’s edition of Fashion Fridays is all about my outfit for the recently concluded Singapore Blog Awards 2014. The theme for the event was derby, or anything with horses. I had initially planned to pair my fascinator with a cocktail dress but I eventually decided to go with a Valentino inspired full lace romper as I had a lunch appointment thereafter and I didn’t want to look out of place.
I love how this romantic number from Ching exudes a touch of femininity and elegance. The intricate lace details and the trail of bows sprinkled down the back of the romper completely stole my heart. I also adore the long lace sleeves with scallop trimmings as they balance out the shorter hemlines, elevating the overall look to one that effortlessly transitions from casual to semi-formal in the blink of an eye.

I needed a break from my sky high heels, and in times like this, I always turn to wedges for comfort without compromising on style. 

I have featured this glamorous bling wedges from Pazzion on a number of occasions previously. Metallic hues like gold and silver are always a breeze to work with because they go with practically anything and everything. They are a must-have addition to any wardrobe thanks to their unrivaled versatility. Moreover, the lovely rhinestones on this pair also add a little sparkle to the ensemble, which is perfect for special events and functions.

Clutch from Karen (it was a Christmas gift!)

I completed the look with a whimsical pony clutch, which was a Christmas gift from Karen. We share similar tastes in fashion and she never fails to pick out the loveliest gifts. 
This cute little clutch bears a striking resemblance to a wooden rocking horse that was once my favourite toy and I love how it evokes a sense of childlike wonder and nostalgia by bringing back fond memories of my childhood.

Have a great weekend ahead! I am making a trip to Malacca this weekend for a tour of Julie’s Biscuit factory. For real time updates and to find out what else I am up to, do follow my instagram account @reginachow_sg !
