New Surroundings

On me: playsuit via Forever 21 (buy me), cardigan via Romwe (on sale), sandals via Asos (buy me), Bag via Grafea (buy me), Sunglasses via Asos (buy me), ring via We.Ar.Able (buy me)
Makeup: Theodora Ko 

These were shot during a late afternoon with Ko, in the relaxation of a local park. I feel extremely lucky to have talented/creative friend who aid me in my endeavours, especially with location scouting. If i'm not hogging two seats on my daily commute to school, I sometimes (ok frequently) stare out of the window and look at all the possible places I could visit for brunch or shoot at. It's relaxing to plan ahead all the things I would love to do, and sometimes I get ahead of myself, but it's amusing to know of the possibilities one discovers everyday. 

Till next time lovelies!

On me: top via Pull&Bear (buy me), jeans via Asos  (buy me), heels via Asos  (buy me)

Heres some tourist-y pictures for a change.
As expected, the Lourve was crowded regardless of our early morning venture.
So as we waited in line to enter, I decided to snap some shots.

I don't know what possessed me that morning, but realizing I wore jeans in the middle of summer in Europe baffles me.
Seriously.
I also distinctly remember running around Paris looking for a dock where we had dinner reservations.
You could say I had a warped sense of priorities.
The decision was between waking up early to get my outfit together...
Or to sleep in.
I'll leave the verdict to you.

Till next time lovelies!

Beautiful Fantasy

On me: kimono via Value Village, wedges via Forever 21

Happy Halloween guys! 
It's that time again to delve into costumes, chocolate and late night charades.
To me Halloween has always been an excuse to buy ice cream / chocolate in bulk and scope out halloween-esque events or movies.
This year I've decided to revisit the costume I wore last year since I didn't have the time to document it. 
This look was based on a Youtube video I watched as a kid, and became something on my bucket list of halloween costumes. 
The video was a geisha inspired makeup look filled with vivid colors and dramatic flair, something I found myself admiring. 
(view video here)

Since this look was more focused on a creative side, I wanted to ensure that I had the location and photographer who would translate my vision. Luckily I found Katrina who was sweet enough to do the shoot, and I must say the photos turned out better than expected. 
With that being said, I hope all of you have a great night!
Till next time lovelies!

Paris Avec Moi

10/23/2014






On me: top & skirt HM,  ear cuff accessorize 
Photography & Makeup: Melissa Reggan

Here's a mini set of portraits Melissa shot of me during our meet up in Paris.
If any of you followed my journey to Europe last summer, you may know Melissa and I collaborated on several outfit posts.
(view here: Jungle Fever & Meow?)
This time round we shot around Melissa's neighbourhood, where I understood the appeal / simplicity of good lighting and plain walls.

The outfit agenda? To travel around without having any forms of restriction while channelling some minimalistic vibes.
Originally I wore this outfit with a pair of croc patterned slip on kicks (view here), but decided the outfit would suit some heeled sandals for the evening agenda. Usually I'm not a fan of sheer shirts, because it means I have to wear an extra layer of clothing underneath, and when one is travelling they sweat... Alot.
Sweating + tight clothing don't sit well with me, and when I'm out I enjoy not having to worry about the clothes i'm running around / trying to pose in.
Even so, the shirt was a perfect loophole. 
It was indeed sheer, but manageable enough to be worn with a bralette. 
Till next time lovelies!
