Pretty in White
It’s always been a love-hate relationship with the shade white, because although it brightens every look and brings a youthful vibe, it just gets stained so easily. But that’s OK, I’ll just have to be extra careful :). Here I have my favorite chic cape-blazer from Zara matched with culottes of the same texture (don’t you just love the black ribbons for the contrast...Comments 18
The Timeless Dress
Maybe practicality comes with age. Working in financial services have me hording neutral basics and professional attire constantly. It hasn’t always been this way though, I never had much fashion dilemma and used to get my hands on anything that caught my eye (while still trying to be frugal, somehow). There was something great about owning unique and inspiring pieces despite not having the...
In my elementary school years, I recall a period when I was obsessed with Tuxedo Mask – the handsome protagonist in the Sailor Moon series. He was known for unfailingly making heroic entrances in every episode in his black cape and saving the day. Perhaps it was since then I started fancying the idea of capes and the associated mysterious vibes. But certainly just because it looks...
Styling Faux Fur
What comes to mind when you think about wearing fur? I personally think of couture, statement, luxury, and maybe freezing cold, haha. I’ve recently discovered a new found appreciation for it as I looked for winter outfit alternatives. I’ve now officially ventured into the world of faux fur coats and I can’t seem to stop. It’s addictive. I’ve always thought fur coats are very pretty but happily...
Styling Waterfall Coat
Christmas and new years in Toronto are always so cold that I find myself constantly shopping for outerwear during this season. I fell in love with this waterfall coat the moment I saw it on sale on Shein.com. I adored the neutral tone and the ankled length – making it a classic timeless piece. In general waterfall coats are versatile, in winter it’s best matched with turtle necks and...
Patched Denim Jacket
Beautifuls, I bring you a recent favourite of mine – denim jacket with patches. Designers often look to the past to design for the future, and here’s a product of that. I remember in grade school I used to love decorating my sweaters and jackets with pins and stickers, who’d think that I was one futuristic cookie? 😎 The jacket I’m wearing is from fashionmia.com – If you love...
I’m constantly exposed to fashion inspired by K-Pop, and lately my style seems to be gravitating towards that way. If you want to know how to dress like your favorite K-Pop idols, here’s some tips, read on! You need nice shoes – They don’t have to be expensive, but high heels aren’t only for fancy occasions in Korea. I’d opt for heel pumps for summer and quality/clean...
Stripes, stripes, stripes
It’s true, wearing vertical stripes has a slim effect, whereas wearing horizontal stripes has the opposite. But there’s something about horizontal stripes that I find so visually pleasing and chic, perhaps because the perfectly parallel lines make any tops look more refined and hence easier to dress them up or down. I fully embraced the stripes here with this dress, but hey, color black is...
I’m definitely a late adopter of the culottes trend. My first impression of the trend was…who brought these back from the 90s? At a glance these wide legged pants strip femininity away from any outfit, and if people are going to wear it like a maxi skirt, then why not just wear a maxi skirt? So I went from the initial resistance, to repeatedly seeing these everywhere I...
Piercings, make-up, revealing and sophisticated looking clothes at a younger age defined my desire to look more mature, and be able to blend in with the older crowd. So it seems I’m kicking like Benjamin Button, and have it all backwards. T-shirts, sneakers, and cute backpacks that I would’ve once thought looked too childish, are things I’ve developed an ineffable appreciation for. Youth is precious, anyone would agree to that, but like...
