Lingy does Styling with Crossroads

I am always browsing workwear like jackets and work dresses online. I seem to only have two extremes. Work clothes or track pants and PJs! I desperately need a black jacket and black closed toe heels but I always get distracted by colourful work heels and seem to be drawn to a lot of blue suit jackets. These are my picks for a work day. What do you think?

I am not sure if it is my having an enabler Mum or because she used to work for a global and international brand that I expect clothes to be cheap. Well most of the times it was free back then! And we would only splash out (A LOT) on shoes and handbags. Because of that I cringe if I click on sale automatically if I am browsing for clothing. For handbags and shoes, never ever .. if it was on sale, it was a bonus. There is a reason why every Asian Louis Vuitton and Chanel has a queue outside, us Chinese we love the brands. 

If you know me at work and you are reading this, yes I wear Temt and Target to work. Bet you thought it was Cue. The blue studded detail top had caught my eye for some reason, but I am not sure on the sheer. Let me know if I look like mutton as lamb in this number, as you can tell from my latest Hall of shame post I have a anti-mesh stance. The military jacket is on the website for $30!! I was thinking to myself that I need a black jacket as most of mine are blue! 

I went to David Jones recently and tried on the Ferragamo Carla heels. Lucky I did as I found out that I am size 6.5 not 7 as I earlier thought. Another suddenly realisation that I do not have closed toe black shoes. I just got stuck into a peep-toe thing for many years ok! So this is on my next to buy list. Please Shopbop gimme a code soon kthxbai? The Miu Miu Bow bag that Mum gave me last year is still unused. Yes yes yes.. it's expensive ok I will use it! And the cute earrings are from Alannah Hill which you might likey too. Also comes with a pink centre.  

Let me know what you think and if you like the Lingy Style files! Hate it? Tell me and I'll go back to Claw pics!

  1. I'd wear Target too, if it fit me properly!!!!! I spent about $250 on Target skirts and had to chuck them all out cos they didn't fit me the way I liked, obvs not designed for petites like me.

    TEMT on the other hand (and Valleygirl) I love!! Sure a lot of their stuff die after two washes but there are some gems there.

    I also love Forcast, they have lovely blouses (in polyester I'm guessing, it's like faux-chiffon??) but who cares! It's $50 and I don't need to iron :)

    AND Portmans have great shirts (around$80 though) and their skirts come in 6, woo hoo!!!

    I don't care about brands any more :)
