1 Top, 3 Holiday Looks

Happy Holidays all my blog buddies! Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, I know I am, eating and drinking a ton of hot chocolate (Vosges Haute Chocolat, cause I'm fancy like that lol)!

With the following looks I took one simple black turtleneck and wore it 3 different ways, for 3 different kinds of Holiday parties

For the Glamourous Holiday Party
I chose a metallic silver dress and toned it down with a black top, tights and necklace (which I twisted into a PeterPan collar)
H&M Turtleneck, DKNY Dress, Kenneth Lane Necklace, Belt made from ribbon

For a Holiday Party at Work
I tried to keep the skirt from looking too young by adding a faux fur vest and sporting a low side swept bun
H&M Turtleneck, Uniqlo Faux Fur vest, F21 skirt, Lee Angel necklace

Heart Loving Socks and Tights from Tutuanna (Japan)

For a Friend's Holiday House Party
Layered a sequined sweater over the turtleneck and added a pop of color with coral tights under a winter flower printed skirt
H&M Turtleneck, Sequined Sweater and Tights, Sweater Project Knit Skirt, AK rose gold watch

The Best X'mas present I ever received from my bestie: Playing cards with Big Bang's T.O.P. on 'em <3

Hope you all have a happy and healthy! Cheers, Annie

Award Show Fashion: 2011 TVB Anniversary Awards

This years TVB awards had an interesting array of gowns that were either mesmorizing or vomit inducing. You'll see what I mean...
Linda Chung won my vote for best dressed in this Barney Cheng design worth $131,000 HKD.  I am such a sucker for shiny things ;P I wish I could go back to high school (ala Never Been Kissed) just so I could go to prom again to wear this dress! FAB!
Fala Chen's sequined deep-v dress by Giorgio Armani was also a stunner but in a much more subtle way
TVB Queen, Myolie Wu accepted her award in this custom feathered Black Swan inspired design. Truly a stunning piece that looks better on video, I was surprised she could actually walk in this!
Aimee Chan always keeps it simple but not completely effortless in this lace applique dress
Sire Ma's dress was perfect for her petite body as the repetitive layered stripes gave the illusion of a longer form
Kate Tsui with Bosco Wong (aka Luke Skywalker, who stole some jewels from Princess Leia) Kate brought interest to an otherwise simple look with some major neck bling
Nancy Wu also went for a feathered look but in a white strapless gown. While this look was the top pick for many Hong Kongers, it didn't really strike me as a showstopping gown
Natalie Tong's lilac dress fit her like a glove but I'm not a total fan of the tulle at the bottom as it seems all over the place
I really like Selina Li's Grecian inspired gown with a daring leg slit, perfect amount of sexy and sparkle
Sharon Chan has gotten kind of... oh what's the word? Whorish. Sorry girl I know you want to show off your mile long legs, but I'm not interested in seeing your cooch everytime. Thanks.
Introducing.... Liza Wang, Beekeeper. Do I really have to explain why this is in this category? Ok I will. First of all it's an award show so you shouldn't really show up looking like your foil wrap from the spa wouldn't come off. And a hood? Really? Am I shaking my head? Absolutely.
Katy Kung looks like one of those kids from Toddlers and Tiaras.
Oh My God, Cilla looks like she has an animal stuck in her armpits -__- help them, they're trapped!

Who's your pick for best and worst dressed? Let me know in the comments below!!

Award Show Fashion: 48th Golden Horse Awards

Over the weekend, Taiwan held the 48th Golden Horse Awards, their version of the Oscars. And the ladies dressed just as fashionable as their Hollywood counterparts. I must say these ladies are a bit more modest about showing their cleave than some of the HK celebs...

Tang Wei looked more like princess than that Kate girl in this light pink Valentino from the Resort 2012 collection.  Wei has never disappointed me before in her red carpet outfits, let's hope she continues to 'wow' us!
Ella Chen looked ultra femme in a pleated charcoal Andrew Gn dress from F/W 2011. I am always shocked when she wears dresses because I'm so used to seeing her as a tomboy.
Vivian Hsu is always one to beat on the red carpet, she showed up in a sequined Salvatore Ferragamo featuring a v-neck and a high slit. She always gets the best dresses and sponsored the nicest bling!
Carina Lau wore a form fitting gradient Atelier Versace gown from S/S 2011, working it like a true diva
Angelica Lee was a vixen in this body hugging strapless red satin dress
 Aoi Miyazaki beaded dress seemed a bit overwhelming for her thin frame
Hao Lei picked a Fan Qi Hui original design, she just needed some neck bling to make a simple look stand out more, otherwise it's a great teal color.
Jiang Wenli wore a Naeem Khan floral embroidered black dress that was both age appropriate and chic
Kara Hui chose a stand out chartreuse dress with tiered chiffon ruffles
Bowie Tseng also opted for a strapless chartreuse colored gown but with a jewel encrusted sweetheart neckline, I must say it looks a bit ill fitting in the bust area
Pink Yang wore a dress by Shiatzy Chen, I like the peep of ivory colored ruffles under the sheer black fabric
Qin Hailu tulle dress was not a favorite of mine, the puff sleeve looked to '80's prom for me 
Michelle Chen opted for a blush dress with rosettes and petals strewn about, it was both youthful and sweet
Tanaka Chie kept it simple and classy in a maroon Xia Zi Li original
Shu Qi in Giorgio Armani; looks like she's a clown on stilts with these large flared bell bottoms, instead of elongating her legs it just swallowed them up. I did however like the blazer which was actually backless
Rene Liu wore a white Lanvin that was just was frumpy, shapeless and made her look like a paper towel roll

Fashion at HK TVB's 45th Anniversary

The ladies of TVB really brought out their best poses and 'chok' (the act of looking cool and sexy on purpose) looks for the Anniversary party this year. 

Myolie Wu won my vote for best dressed of the night in this white dress featuring a plunging neckline. Paired with the right amount of bling and a bright red lip, Myolie was ready to party.
The gorgeous Fala Chen showed up in a back revealing Roberto Cavalli gown. The poor girl is currently suffering from facial paralysis right when her career is taking off :( I really hope she recovers.
Kate Tsui did not pick a good dress, it wasn't figure flattering and looked like a crinkled mess, she did however pick a great piece of arm candy with Raymond Lam ;) 
Natalie Tong's peach dress was sweet in color and sexy in slit, sadly she didn't put as much effort into her hairstyle
Janet Chow looked effortlessly like a princess in this jewel encrusted strapless dress and diamonds dripping off her ears and neck
The couple to talk about: Moses Chan and Aimee Chan appeared together in matching black outfits
Dodo Cheng opted to cover her shoulders this year with a shiny printed caplet over this simple red dress
Jess Sum shows off her sponsored jewels in this deep red dress with a sweetheart neckline
Nancy Wu was another TVB 'fa dan" who decided that white would compliment her gorgeous diamond necklace
Samantha Ko went with a more reserved dress this time around to keep the focus on her million dollar jewels
Sharon Chan wasn't afraid to show a little leg (and apparently some undergarment) in this high slit 
Tavia Yeung's outfit and little hat really disappointed me this time around, the dress was unflattering and aged her a little
Vivien Yeo went a different route from everyone else and opted for a taupe colored v-neck gown
TV host Astrid Chan showed up to the red carpet in a bright fuchsia dress, it looked a bit prom to me, maybe because my prom dress was the same color....  

I would literally freak out if I got to wear over a million dollars worth of jewels..and be super paranoid that I would lose them! 

Which dress caught your eye?
