Dress for Success
Saw this interesting article online "Dress for success" which I find it meaningful especially for the fresh grads who are dealing with the transition period from school life to the working society. Having been there and done that, I find it a struggle to change my wardrobe of shorts & tanks to something professional yet comfortable to last me through the 8 hours (or more) in office.

The most convenient kind of work wear for me is definitely a piece of gorgeous dress! Think, waking up in the morning when you actually hunger for more sleep than spending time in your wardrobe searching for a matching blouse with high-waist skirts/pants. My vote is of course one piece of dress that save the hassle and in turn sleep in for another 15 minutes or so, what say you? Your vote? :)

Read on...

"Whether you've landed your first office job or you’re just at a point in your career where you want to rethink the impressions you make on coworkers, dressing for success is not a cliche. It’s a necessity.


It's an old piece of advice but it's still around because it works. If you have an entry-level position and hope to climb the company ladder, don't dress like an entry-level employee. Stand out and show your goals: dress like your boss's boss dresses.


Don't be afraid to splurge. These are investments in your long-term career goals. Your employers see you as a reflection of the company, and of themselves. You want to be perceived professionally. Don't be afraid to purchase good pieces that you will wear over and over for a long time.

For the ladies things aren't always as cut and dry. Your best tip for starting out is to take a good look at the women in your office. I mean, the highest executives. Women can be much more competitive about dressing then men in the office. You’re goal is to dress to impress and fit in, not to shock or out-do."

We have actually long passed the century where shirt & pants are only allowed in the office attire. Walk down the road of Raffles Places & Tanjong Pagar, all you can see is our beautifully dressed office ladies donned in their best dress full of style and color, even in sleeveless dress as well with a smart blazer on their hand in any case for the last minute meeting with the management :)

Having quote that, here where we bring you to our latest collection "Dress Galore"

Maritime Experiential Museum
After a few bad Haze days, am glad that Singapore has returned back to it's clear blue skies :)

Last Friday, to escape from the Haze, we can't do outdoor activity and so we went to Maritime Experiential Museum at Sentosa! :)

"An innovative, interactive and multi-sensorial museum, The Maritime Experiential Museum is the only museum in Singapore where visitors can experience Asia’s rich maritime history and discover Singapore’s past as a trading port. This trip back in time begins along the ancient Maritime Silk Route, which recreates the sights, sounds and scents of the bustling bazaars and where you can interact with the exhibits. See a fascinating trove of precious artefacts from the Bakau shipwreck and Temasek archaeological site that can be found at the Maritime Archaeology Gallery. View life-sized ship replicas of Asian sailing vessels from the docks at the Historic Ship Harbour, and learn more about Asia’s maritime and cultural heritage through the museum’s education programmes. This unforgettable visit ends on a nail-biting note in the 360º multimedia Typhoon Theatre where visitors ‘board’ a sailing ship and encounter a perilous storm. The most amazing voyage of discovery awaits at The Maritime Experiential Museum." - http://www.rwsentosa.com


A very fun trip amidst the busy schedule, it feels like I'm going back to the Primary school days when the school brought us to excursion at The Underwater World (if anyone could still remember heh!)

Summer Flight
Heads up! We have launched the Summer Flight, and we believe all ladies out there has reach the destination safe and sound! :)

The Rucacia Team thanks everyone for the support for this collection :)

We decided to be different this time and compiles with a teen bit of Korean fashion after all the hyped about the running man heh.

So now, what is the trend in Korea 2013 and how then do we define best? Well, personally we feel that Korean fashion exudes charm in every woman and Korean woman seems to dress impeccably with ease. Who does not want to look good having invested in a wardrobe (or maybe more than one) full of clothing, accessories and shoes?

Monochromatic Colors
A blazing spectrum of colors hit the Spring Summer 2013 runways, From warm hues of orange, red, yellow and pink to cool, serene hues of the ocean ranging from green, cobalt, turquoise, azure to cerulean, these color wonderful shades lit up the outfits in vibrant flashes. Worn as a column of solid colors, this trend promises to brighten up your wardrobe and moods.


A white summer dress can be the perfect accessory to lazy days in the park or lunch with your girlfriends. Team a flowy white dress with bursts of color like chunky bangles or a bright handbag. Wedges will complete your summer look. Look for layered whites that have lace cut-outs or intricate embroidery. The finer details are sure to give you a sophisticated and elegant edge. 2013 is a big year for fashion, with the leniency to experiment towards bolder patterns and futuristic designs. It is all about big personality and in-your-face style. Look out for these big fashion trends this summer and find something that screams you. Make sure you spend your spring and summer in style.
