My hair colour is finally washed out enough to see the blue clearly and I’m really loving it. I think I keep gravitating towards blue cause it’s really flattering for my skin tone.



The awesome 20-something degree weather in Singapore didn’t last long which warrants some off-shoulder goodness. Gotta love the Laurie top from eightslate.

It’s great to be back in the groove of blogging after a long time and even better when I get to wear stuff that I just bought. Nothing like the smell of new bags! *sniffs*

Also, new hair colour! I’ve been stuck with relatively normal colours for a while now and having a little colour back in my hair was a welcoming change. My stylist, Peter from Hairloom decided to give me a turquoise mixed in with a lovely silver  and blue-black which will fade into a lighter colour.

I didn’t discover the awesomeness of dressy track pants until I was in Korea. I needed something to hide my bruises and was easy to slip on so this pair made of cotton drill (instead of jersey or terry cloth) was the perfect choice for me. Having pockets on womenswear is really hard to come by too so I wouldn’t pass up the chance to have a place to put my hands. #thestruggleisreal

I’ve been wanting a Prisma Marion bag from Alexander Wang for a long time but there were just too many hardware colours and materials to choose from; I finally settled on the Alexander Wang Prisma Marion Neoprene Bag which is mostly made of fabric and has black leather corners. Being the klutz that I am, I scratched my bag the first day I brought it out. Does anyone have any ideas or tips on removing those scratches? I’d love to hear them!

I can’t believe it’s been more than 2 months since I was in London. I’m really missing Monmouth coffee and the food from Borough Market. Stumbled upon this cool wall of graffiti while roaming around and decided it’s a cool backdrop for an outfit post.

I’m the worst when it comes to maintaining bags made of smooth leather. I managed to scratch this gorgeous bag from & Other Stories the day I brought it out.

Still not over my All Saints Hoxton Monument Jacket. (They call it a “coat” online, but the material is way too thin for anything chillier than a spring breeze). I can wear a potato sack underneath, button the jacket up (as can be seen here), and instantly look presentable for a michelin star restaurant date. Not that I have michelin star restaurant dates or potato sacks, but a girl can dream.

Got two sets of these stacking rings at a Mango sale earlier. I have never actually paid much attention to Mango before, but I was actually pretty impressed by their accessories selection! I felt that they went well with my simple gold choker from H&M, but I think I’m one of those people who don’t actually mind mixing metals – a whole armful of gold bracelets and rings would seem too much of an overkill for me!

What are your thoughts on mixing silver and gold jewelry?

I’ve always loved the structure and silhouette of Haider Ackermann’s garments. I was not convinced about how great it would look on a regular person cause everything looks good on a model and this skepticism was lingering when I picked up this Haider Ackermann vest at the Club 21 sale last year.  It was the only black one left and I was half-hearted about this purchase as there were no mirrors around but thank goodness Venetia insisted that I buy it.



I’m also in love with the Nichole harness from Mandy Wu. The best bit about her harnesses is that you can layer them together to make them look better. I guess this means I have to start a mini collection of harnesses from her now.
