Hello everyone!!!

As promised from the collaboration I did with Camille Sioco from Frilly Skirts, here are the details about the outfit I wore that day. For this neon number, I was lucky enough to work with Ramon Diamzon from Street Peeked (also A.K.A Camille’s partner).

I’ve known Ramon for about 2 years now and he is hands down one of the coolest guys I have ever met. To me, he is the definition of cool and I know, I know….. when someone speaks fondly about a person, they commonly say “yeah that guy is cool” in the context of; yeah I like that guy or, yeah, he’s alright. But seriously, this guy is the essence of COOL!
Think – swag, badass, killer style, unique and in all honestly if I was a guy, I would want to be him LOL! (I’m not even ashamed to admit that hahahah!) He is the only guy I know that has a bigger collection of shoes than myself (RESPECT) and most of his shoes are limited edition or one of kind sneakers. On top of that, he takes killer photos and he is also insanely funny. Not mention, his other half is Camille, so what is there not to like!!!

As I previously mentioned in the collaboration, I wasn’t feeling my best on the day. I was unfortunately recovering from an unexpectedly big night, lacking sleep and feeling so ill, that I missed out on an amazing breakfast. Regardless of this, Ramon managed to still capture such great photos. Looking at these photos now, I can’t even tell that I was feeling sick HAHAHA! Thanks Ramon :P

This is the second time I’ve collaborated with another photographer other than Chin and it is so interesting to see how different photographers capture different sides of you. Even though my outfit is crazy bight and some would even call it a little out there. Ramon still brings his signature; urban, street aesthetic to the photos. The images he captures in my opinion are so honest, which I find really endearing. It was a real pleasure collaborating with both Camille and Ramon, I had such a great time with them, it didn’t even feel like we were doing a collaboration, more so just hanging out hehehe!

I mentioned in my previous post about being a proud serial wardrobe repeat, with this outfit I have stayed true to my word. Besides the slight styling changes, I have used the same pants and cardigan from an outfit post last year.
I know with most people, they feel most comfortable in black and white, where as I, however, am the complete opposite. I feel more at ease in colour, especially with this outfit; at first glance, you wouldn’t think that the items individually, would work well together. However, as soon as you combine the colourful, bold cardigan with the lavender disco pants and neon transparent bag, the colours end up complimenting each other so well. The concept of contradicting items in fashion really intrigues me and I think this is why there is a common thread in the colour palette of my outfit choices.

Do you find many similarities in your outfit choices?

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you all tomorrow with another post :P

Hello Hello!

So glad to share another outfit post with you all, especially an outfit that includes my love of vintage clothing.
I know I haven’t been as frequent with my posts for the past 2 months but for me, it was a much-needed break. It’s that time of the year when everything falls quickly and so heavily from the preparations of Christmas and the lead up to the summer break. Priorities pile up, the list of ‘things to do’ becomes never ending and the pressures of work and college start to weigh heavily. Worst of all, your negative subconscious starts tempting you to drop everything and give up amidst the pressures of life.
This is something that I am more than familiar with because I have experienced this time and time again.
Before things had become more than overwhelming, I made sure to remove myself from the situation, just for a couple of weeks to adjust. Taking preventive measures to prepare for the stress to come.

Now I’m back in the blogosphere, charged up and ready to go! Currently prioritising business meetings and the importance of taking on quality and not quantity, which is a mistake that I’ve made several times.

To start us off, some you may recognise this fluffy jumper from one of the outfits I wore to fashion week. Well, since then, this vintage gem has kept me not only comfortable but also warm in the coldest of weathers. I found this treasure at a Salvation Army store in the city for just $50 and I haven’t parted ways with it since. I think I’m even in denial that the weather is warming up because even in the warmest of days I find myself wanting to put it on ahahahaha!
I have always loved vintage clothing and it is a perfect fit for someone like me, a student, shopping with cost limitations, however, purchasing clothes without jeopardising the quality and aesthetic.
To create visual depth and compliment it’s vocal point, I wore it with black disco pants and mustard socks against white boots. I could of easily kept it simple with just back and white but to be honest, it’s not me without that little bit of colour hehehe.

To make up for my previous lack of contact, I’ll be posting more frequently within the coming weeks letting you in on all the things I’ve been up to :P

Thanks for visiting and I’ll catch you later this week

Hey Everyone

Sorry I haven’t been in touch for some time, the September and October rollercoaster took me by surprise and I’ve only been able to catch a breath now.

Before I get into the details about my time away from the blogosphere, I wanted to share my first collaboration with the one and only Camille Sioco from Frilly Skirts. I consider Camille as one of my close friends so when she approached me for a collaboration, I was more than excited that she even thought of me, she has been in the game for 5 years and is one of the most successful bloggers I know, so you can imagine my excitement.

Camille has been my biggest support within the blogger community, we met almost 2 years ago, at a time when I had just started blogging and had no idea what I was doing. We immediately became great friends and have been in touch ever since, it helps that she lives just up the road. Even our boyfriends/photographers; Ramon and Chin, have developed their own bromance hahahaha!

But in all seriousness, I have learnt so much from her; especially learning how to stay true to yourself and keeping your own identity as a blogger, which is one of the hardest things I’ve come across as a fashion blogger.
I have never met anyone quite like her; the MOST organized person I know, down to earth and a personality with so much depth that constantly surprises. Such a big contrast to me, however, just an example – she posted this 2 weeks ago and here I am just only getting myself organized hehehehe :P !

On the day, we had brunch at Paper Planes Café, where I unfortunately missed out on a mean breakfast. I had a tad much to drink the night before at a birthday party ….. (sigh) yup, I hated myself, that breakfast looked soooo good.
We ended hanging out at a really nice memorial park where we shared some great laughs, mostly about how awkward we felt with two cameras (Ramon’s and Chin’s) on us at the same time. I kept pulling faces (it’s a thing I do when I feel awkward, if you haven’t already noticed) and poor Ramon had to deal with directing me when I was being silly for most of the shoot … hahaha, sorry Ramon.

Since I had recently sprained my ankle, I had to stick to sneakers, which I teamed with my signature disco pants and one of my favourite cardigans, as usual, I looked like a walking rainbow hahaha!.
Camille rocked the 80s with a plaid shirt tied around her waist, with a simple printed shirt and leather pants perfectly accessorized. This girl can rock any look I swear, I loved this outfit on her especially, such a great contrast to her signature feminine frilly skirt aesthetic.

Check out more about our collaboration and her outfit on her blog www.frillyskirts.net

I’ll be posting more details about my outfit on this day within the week so keep a look out.

Hope everyone is having an amazing start to the week!
I’m currently taking some much-needed time away in Melbourne YAY!!!!
I’ll be posting up everything I’ve been up for the past 2 months and my trip to Melbourne within the coming weeks so stay tuned.

Thank you for visiting!!!

Last month my self-esteem suffered a drastic decline. Don’t get wrong, I am not complaining bout my body type or the way I look. I just suffered from evil thoughts that were spawned from my own insecurities.

The bad diets and the 2 months abandoning my routine workout at the gym finally caught up to me. I didn’t experience drastic changes in my body; it was just the way I felt. Brought on by abusing my body with the unusual amount junk food and lack of exercise.

As much as I celebrate loving yourself and the way you look not matter how big, small, curvy or thin you are. Sometimes, negative and unreasonable thoughts just seem to get in the way.

On days that I’m suffering from my own mental block, I wear slimming colors like black. I wear baggier shirts, prints are usually my best friend and a little touch of colour also helps to brighten my day.

Now, back at the gym, strenuously trying to get back into my old routine by attempting a healthier practice of eating. I already feel that little bit better, prouder and this has solved the unreasonable put-downs I put on myself.

Please tell me I’m not the only one that suffers from their own metal abuse (wow I sound crazy). If you too suffer from this, I’m curious to know what do you wear to cover the bulge?

Thanks for visiting :)

I’ll be posting some exciting things this week so stay tuned.

There I was having second thoughts feeling a little vulnerable about posting my personal and private thoughts.

But Wow, thank you so much for all your kind words and support from my earlier post. It is really comforting to know that I’m not the only one that struggles to post consistently, with so many any other commitments that get in the way. So thank you again :)

It has been a while since I’ve posted an outfit and even though I’m still really excited to share the runway shows I attended at Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival. I think it’s time to spice things up and bring out some of the outfits that I’ve been wearing since then.

It’s the second week back to college; sitting through lectures can be tiring and at times very uncomfortable. Because of this, I find myself wearing more casual, chilled and comfortable clothing to keep me going through the day.

A big trend that I have fallen in love with is the football jersey. It is so cute and you can wear it almost anywhere by dressing it down or up by paring it with heels and a skirt. I actually found this jersey in the Topman while I was looking for something for my boyfriend. Even though it’s made for men, I thought it was a good steal because of how comfortable it is due to it’s baggy make. Another plus is that both me and boyfriend Chin can wear it, you know what they say “sharing is caring” hehehe :)

What do you wear that’s comfortable and gets you through your day?

Last week at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival, I met the amazing Margaret Zhang. She was there style scouting for preview.Booodl.com.
She is one of the Fashion bloggers (blog -Shine by Three) that inspired me to start blogging not to mention she is so amazing and breathtakingly beautiful. So you can imagine how starstruck I was when I finally met her.

As soon as I saw her, I started hyperventilating like a teen girl meeting one of the boys from one direction (sorry, it’s the only comparison I could think of -.-‘). I tried to play it cool but in the corner of my eye I saw her coming towards me and as soon as she asked if she could take a photo of my outfit, everything went downhill from there.
My excitement quickly turned into uncontrollable word vomit, attacking her with overly excited sentences “I know you! I love all your outfits, you are amazing!” I could hear myself embarrassing myself and the little voice of reason told me to stop but I just couldn’t. It was like a train wreck that I just stood back and helplessly watched.

I’ve been kicking myself since and running it over and over again in my head, thinking about how I would of done it differently without embarrassing myself. But I guess on the bright side it has turned into a funny story to share.

So Margaret if you ever read this (which I don’t blame you if you don’t) sorry for the overly excited reaction and thank you for giving me such a memorable story to tell.

Here is a snap from the website preview.Booodl.com. It’s just a preview to their up and coming official site but they feature some pretty cool runway shows from the festival. Plus they have some interesting stuff on there which makes it worth checking it out.

I’ll be posting more photos on this outfit soon so keep a look out and next post I’ll be featuring the looks seen on the runway, so stay tuned.

Hope you guys enjoyed my embarrassing encounter with my equivalent to a celebrity.

Thanks for visiting :)
