It’s been so long since I’ve posted an outfit post. I’m so sorry for my absence.

After seeing all the runway pictures these few weeks, I’ve been very inspired by runway looks and after getting my hands on a pair thigh highs that looks suspiciously like the ones from the Chanel Spring/Summer 2010 collection, I’ve decided to put together a runway inspired look from that collection.

We picked out several details from the runway collection. Basically, the look is girly and sweet with a loose updo and flower headpieces. Makeup is light, fresh and at a bare minimum. The shoes and patterned stockings are important highlights of the look.

Added a flowery necklace to make it more girly.

Braided my hair up and added some corsages too.

The stockings are pretty fragile with similar criss-cross patterns, I’m afraid of snagging them though. The clogs are from a Japanese shoe brand called Esperanza.

Black outfit Breakdown:

  • Dress: Some shop in Dong Dae Mun, Seoul.
  • Corsage: Claire’s
  • Necklace: Diva
  • Stockings: Leg Avenue bought from Camden, London
  • Shoes: Esperanza (here’s the link )

What do you guys think of runway inspired looks? Would you like to see more of it?

    Runway inspired looks are win and definitely the “in-thing”. Plus, having “modified” into black outfits!

    However, I guess it’d only be great to dress as such during special occasions. Walking around sunny Singapore in a whole lot of black outfits = self-sabotage :/

    Anyhoots, I’d like to see more of those! ?

    hey Ann, we still wear black despite being in Singapore. I do believe the type of fabric plays a part too. Crazy weather we have lately huh? I find the haze very unbearable. :<

    Ann replied on

    I second that!! Personally, I too, find it hard to grow out of my comfort zone of dressing in colors and I’m very weary of the fabrics of my clothes!

    And you couldn’t believe how WOW’ed I was when it rained yesterday! I was like, “LOOK MA! RAIN!”. Totally spastic.

    You are guys are great! Clear, distinct point of view & style. Beautiful photography & thoughtful posts.

    Unlike another local so called fashion blogging duo that pride itself too much as the premier fashion know it all blog but is a hot mess with no real identity.

    gosh, your style is spot on! i actually prefer the black version, i just love the gothic romantic vibe! though i don’t like clogs in general, i must say that they go really well with the outfit! j’adore 😀

    Arissa replied on

    Thanks Kristy. I have to admit I wasn’t a fan of clogs too. But I guess Karl Lagerfeld just has the ability to make anything covetable.

    Thanks Mani~!! It wasn’t intentional but I was just trying to replicate this look with whatever I could find in my wardrobe (which is unfortunately mostly black).
