TSM Answered: Michael Kors Yellow vs. Rose Gold Watch – Please help!

Anonymous Asked:

Hi Tien! Love your blog and I noticed that you have a lovely rose gold watch. I can’t decide between the MK’s Rose or Yellow Gold watch. What do you think is more classic and easier to style? Thanks in advance :)

Great question! I’ve had my for almost a year now and I definitely think it’s worth the splurge. I knew from the beginning that I wanted this particular model given that the face was smaller than the Michael Kors one and I liked the simplicity of the watch’s face.

I recently helped my friend decide between the RG and YG Michael Kor’s watch and I know it can be a hard decision. Honestly, it boils down to your personal preference so go with your gut instinct because it’s a win-win situation in my eyes. Check how both look against your skin tone and what accessories you intend to pair with the watch. RG has a beautiful vintage feel to it which is on trend and tends to compliment most skin tones while the YG watch has a more classic feel and suits a tanned skin tone. Pair RG looks against neutrals (whites and blacks) and feel free to mix the YG watch with your all coloured accessories and clothes.

If you already have other YG watches, I would suggest opting for the RG just because it’s  nice to have ‘options darling’, ‘options’ for your different outfits. Wear the RG watch classically on it’s own or mix it with both RG and YG accessories as I have done in the picture above. With arm swag getting a lot of air time, I’d take advantage of the trend and experiment stacking some neutral coloured leather bracelets with the watch too.

Although I’m a Marc Jacobs lover, there is a beautiful that is accented with a 0.5 carat diamond out at the moment till stocks last!

I hope this has helped but I would definitely go with you gut instinct because they are both beautiful colours to choose from !

TSM Outfit Post: My First London Fashion Weekend

After missing out on London Fashion Weekend tickets last year, I stalked the website like   there was a crazy secret online sale on and made sure that Kylee and I got tickets for this year’s event. London Fashion Weekend is open to the public (note London Fashion Week is different and reserved for elite designers, buyers, celebrities and famous bloggers only) and this year’s event promised all that shopaholics and fashion enthusiasts could hope for: Catwalk shows, pop-up boutiques, make-up/hair stations and a Mulberry designed LFW12 tote bag filled with goodies that I was more excited about than the event itself.

However… in my haste in ordering tickets, I managed to stuff up our booking and forgot to order the LFW Mulberry Goody bag! *cries* I know what you’re thinking, it’s just a printed tote bag with a lot of freebies/goodies but you must understand, I.LOVE.FREEBIES. Samples, miniature goodies, catalogues, magazines, free food tasting at the markets, whatever it is, I want a part of it. So I was really annoyed at myself for making such a silly mistake and watched enviously as everyone picked up their bags like badges for a club – I know it could have been a lot worse; I could have turned up on the wrong day (don’t laugh, I have done that before; I have arrived a day early at the airport for my flight) and it’s fine, I’ll just just have to attend next year’s London Fashion Weekend now won’t I ? :P

We purchased the basic set of tickets (and used a free discount code on the Internet -Win!) which included entry into the event and a catwalk show but overall, I found the ticket prices dear for what basically allowed you to shop and watch a short 15 minute catwalk show (Ticket prices ranged from £24 – £150 depending on the package purchased). The highlight of my day was just being amongst a crowd of predominantly women and girls who shared a common interest for fashion (you could tell everyone there had made an effort to dress up or down for the event) and the fact that I was in London experiencing the multitude of different styles from the high end to funky street style which is what fashion is all about.

Here are a few snaps from the day:
