New Year Fashion Resolutions

It was at least week ago when I first posted the first post of 2013 starring my new-found obsession Cara Delevingne. Since then, I've been getting a lot of positive feedback and it really amped my confidence as a rookie blogger and I hope that by the end of this year Style Cookie would be an awesome style blog. (fingers crossed !) I know it's a bit late for this BUT here are the fashion-forward new year resolutions I hope to achieve by the end of this year.

1.Be adventurous. I know this is a really big goal for me but for my wardrobe this year, I hope to put together looks that are inspired by the fabulous ones ( like the one up there ) I see on style blogs and magazines and at the same time ,do a personal take on the looks and turn them into something more special and more me. Also ,I would like to incorporate more bright and bold hues and do more colour-blocking this year as it literally screams "I have arrived !".

2. Try the adorable and stylish backpack . If my darling Cara can sport this simple yet chic accessory, why can't I? She has been donning this cute backpack to the recent fashion weeks and it has caused a major style comeback for the backpack. I've been seeing clutches and mini slings and carry-alls across the runways from the Spring/Summer to the Autumn/Winter shows but I never would have expected that the humble backpack could be the next big thing in fashion. It adds a dash of colour and life to the most boring outfit and channels the casual-chic high-street look perfectly if paired up with the right clothes. It's versatility also means that you could carry it all day and won't find yourself on a celebrity gossip magazine's "worst dressed list" or become the latest fashion faux-pas. Backpacks always make me think of the monstrosity of the number of backpacks I see in school, but the shots that I see in style blogs now make me feel excited about the backpack all over again. Backpacks are not a trend right now, but bloggers ,style mavens and models are definitely bringing back the B in the backpack.
3.Find the perfect perfume. As the fabulous Christian Dior once said " A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting " , I've been trying to find the perfect perfume since last December thanks to the overload of new perfumes that made their debut in 2012 and this year. So far, my all-time favourites are the timelessly chic Chanel No.5 , the sensual and joyful Prada Candy and the sweetly surreal Taylor Swift Wonderstruck .

But with the new wave of perfumes available in beauty emporiums such as Sephora, my current favourites may have to step aside. The latest parfums to grab the attention of the fashion world include :1.Christian Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau Secrète  2. Guerlain La Petit Robe Noire (2012) 3.Gucci Premiere 4.Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto  5.Oscar de la Renta Something Blue 6. Prada No.14 Rosetto 7.Thierry Mugler Miroir des Majestes 8.Victoria's Secret Seduction Dark Orchid, Holiday Collection: Crystal Kiss, Frosted Bloom, Starlit Wish
I am utterly spoilt for choice with the huge array of perfumes but a trip to Sephora is just a few moments away.

Girl Crush: Queen Delevingne

Like a make-up artist at the backstage of the Victoria's Secret show , I've been seriously busy this entire holiday with essays and projects (sigh) and dance practices ( yay !) But the more memorable stuff that I did during the holidays were taking up cross-stitching (which was really fun), going to many cool parties and baking many yummy treats like cinnamon and blueberry Betty Crocker muffins ! I know I haven't been posting much BUT I promise that I would have much more exciting content for the new and awesome year of 2013. So to make up for the obvious lack of content, I shall attach some of my favourite pictures of my new found obsession and favourite model IN the world, Cara Delevingne.

On the Victoria's Secret runway,




Love the poses that she does on the runway, it totally exudes the It-girl feel. She looks beautiful even without make-up on and her hair is to-die-for ! In the second-last picture, she's the second from the left posing with other VS Angels including Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss and all of them are wearing the famous Victoria's Secret pink silk robe . And in the last photo, she's with the seriously cute and world-famous Justin Bieber. Awesomest VS Angel ever !!!

In the Chanel Cruise 2013 ads ,

Chanel is one of my fav brands ever and nothing is better than having my fav model star in my fav brand's Cruise 2013 ad. Okay , maybe being able to have Cara's autograph is better . But you get the point.

For those of you who already guessed , yes I got these from style.com and I chose them because they're the most recent ones and I absolutely love the way she wears the clothes and how she carries herself . I think the Burberry Prorsum pictures were the ones that she looked the best in because the lighting and the make-up emphasised her totally beautiful facial features and made her look both elegant and stylish. She's such an amazing clotheshorse and I absolutely LOVE HER . Ciao ~
