Recently shot new episodes of styleXstyle TV, and here’s some of the crazy that happens behind the scenes of every shoot with this fun team!
That elegant lady is Jacq, the director behind the episodes!
They told me to pick out a pair of shoes for the shoot. I love sneakers and I was dying over all the bright colours and prints! Decisions, decisions…
Extremely mind-blowing stuff going on here. This is exactly how I pick out my shoes at home – I take one side of a pair I think may work and because I’m too lazy to actually put it on, I just hold it up and squint a bit as I imagine how the whole outfit will look.
Yellow won by default over coral as the white-with-blue polka dots were out of my size, boo.
This was actually pretty awkward, although I tried my best. Jacq asked me to dance, but already I have two left feet and am a terrible dancer (although I still love killing everyone’s eyes and going for it on the dance floor – too bad for you!); and then they’d cut the music so I was basically bopping around to a made-up song in my head. Not good.
Tried to look model-ly instead but hmmm. All in the edit – make me look good k, Jacq!! (Knowing her and Sharon though, and their sense of humour, they’ll show all the terrible geeky/goofball moments.)
These guys are really great though. =) They make working fun!
Pretty epic one-shot-walking shot. Everything has to go just so when doing such a shot – lines have to be smooth, everyone has to look up and look natural at the right moment, no video-bombers in shot (true story!) and no tripping from the poor camera guy who has his eye on the lens and not where he’s going.(also true story!). Definitely no one-take wonder with this kind of shot!
Sharon on set to help her fashionistas loosen up!
Check, check! Is it good?
More behind the scenes soon!
So it’s been coooold lately (my idea of cold, anyway – I generally love the heat we have in the tropics!) but pretty nice to have the chance to wear my ‘Autumn/Winter’ wear here in Singapore. Not sure the lady behind me agrees on the weather situation though!

So many pairs of shoes – but what to pair them with? I talk shoes in this episode – how to match your shoes to your outfit for the right ‘vibe’ and balance. If you’re a fan of Audrey Hepburn, some tips on achieving her gamine elegance in this episode as well!

Was so pleased to find this top that got hidden beneath the massive pile of clothes I have. I love a vibrant print, and I’m always on the lookout for unique ones. This jungle-inspired one is perfect for summer!

Elvis Presley is one of my heroes, and he obviously loved his shoes too! Ok I’m not actually certain he did, but I’m sure you’ve heard ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ – even if you’re not an Elvis fan. If you haven’t (horrors!) you can check out The King himself here.
So I have my own pair of blue suede shoes, and they are my current favourite because they may every outfit look better – even my old denim cut-offs!
