I think it is fate that I should help Noel Caleb in its infancy stage when their collection was just launched in late Dec last year. I was employed to give out Noel Caleb postcards to spread the joy during the Christmas season at the Raffes CBD area, and subsequently I helped to do telemarketing for a week. Still remember this post?
I was extremely happy to see Eileen & the Noel Caleb team again during Asia Fashion Exchange Bloggers' Soiree last week and accepted Eileen's invitation to take part in their bloggers' styling competition. I can't say I'm one of those that have style, because mostly what I throw on was inspired by streetstyle snaps that I saw online, but I was able to have 5 different looks out from the 2 pieces of Noel Caleb apparel that I wore.
I think the Noel Caleb girl is free spirited and unabashedly daring to put incorporate pop art colour into her outfit. Despite Noel Caleb's first collection being inspired by gentle and elegant ballerinas, I feel that there is a underlying layer of sports into the collection as well, as from the exposed zipper hoodie (Yvette) that I wore. Its two straps makes it a versatile addition to your wardrobe as you can tie them into a belt or into various patterns to update a boring outfit. Plus, you can wear it inside-out to expose the hot pink jersey layer inside as well as per Snap #4!
The circle skirt that I wore was just as fun with its loud hot pink outer layer and inner teal polka dotted layer. In the last snap, I safety pinned the hems of the skirts up to show off those adorable polka dots. The safety pins won't show up on the front since the skirt is double layered but stitched together at the hem.
Outfit breakdown: Noel Caleb jersey outer and circle skirt, Cotton On Lagoon Beach teal tank top, La Senza lace trimmed bra (exposed in Snap #1!)
In case you're wondering why the background of those snaps are so busy, it's part of my room. My parents absolutely refuse to help me out with this project so this is why I had to resort to this >:
This is my moodboard of sorts. All the photographs that are pinned up are taken by me when I was Beijing (:
