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

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!!!

Football Jersey Top – Asos/River Island | Skorts – Zara | Heels – Glue

Hello!!! :)

Sporty Chic is a common and popular trend that 2014 has adopted so well.
We have seen it on the runways, the red carpet and more commonly though street fashion. It is a trend that I have welcomed with open arms and am more than willing to continue embracing, indulging in all that blissful comfort.
The trend involves combining sportswear or a fashionable adaptation, with everyday fashion items and clothing. It is identified more commonly as a mix of sportswear teamed with feminine clothing and items.Just think of a baggie hoodie worn with boyfriend jeans, high heels and you favourite tote.

For those of you who have followed me from the start, you are no stranger to the fact that I grew up as a bit of a tomboy. Till this day, I find comfort in wearing my boyfriend, Chin’s baggy shirts, t-shirts and jackets, making this one of the reasons why I love this trend.

Being a typical girl, it’s that occasional indecisiveness when it comes to particular fashion choices that I hate so much. All you girls can back me up on this one, am I right? HAHAHA! You know what I’m talking about, the days that you draw a complete blank, staring into your closet with no idea what to wear.

I decided to post up this outfit in particular because it is on my re-wear/recycle list. It can be worn on a casual day out, teamed with a pair of sneakers and worn right into the night, simply just by switching to heels. Plus did I mention how amazing skorts are, I mean shorts and a skirt into one… BEST THING EVER!!!

These photos are apart of a collaboration I did with a photographer called Toàn Tran, he was also the technical talent behind my previous outfit post “Missing Summer”. I’ve been so excited about sharing the collaboration with you all because he did such an amazing job. Stay tuned, we have one more outfit post from our collaboration, so keep a look out for it ;)

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you all soon with another post :)

I’ve been seeing these tops, shirts and crops around everywhere, on blogs, celebrities, even on catwalks.  Though I wasn’t into it first, the style has really grown on me and now I just can’t stop the urge from purchasing every top I see.

Speaking of which, I bought one just today in Topman. It’s made for men but hey, the baggier the better.

Something about women wearing men’s sports shirts shouts sexy, plus I’m sure it’s everyman’s fantasy.

Personally I love this new trend because you can wear it casually and dress it up with some pumps. Not to mention that it is super comfortable, I’ve got to admit I’ve been converted.

This is definitely a style that I’ll be rocking throughout 2013, so keep an eye out for my outfit posts.

Do you love it or hate it?

Boyfriend Jeans – Jay Jays | Blazer – ZARA | Shoes – Converse Chuck Lites

Photographer – Yunn Chin

The first time I came across this trend (sometime late 2011- early 2012) I thought for sure that I would never be able to pull it off.

As time passed, my choices and preferences have changed. Influenced by style icons and the fashionistas that I follow, it wasn’t till recently that I’ve been dying to have a pair to call my own.

I usually like rocking my out there colorful style, however, seeing these jeans take me back to my missed tomboy days.

So a couple of weeks ago I dragged my boyfriend Chin with me to find the perfect boyfriend jeans.

Now if you’re like me; broke, picky and difficult to fit. It can be hard finding the pair that is right for you.

Here are some (and when I say some, I really mean a small third) of the stores I visited and what I found:

Glue – They had a couple of styles to choose from, ranging from light to dark, great strong material and plenty of sizes to fit all. The only thing that bothered me was the prices, ranging from $180 – 200 and up, which I would happily spend if I found the right fit for me. But in this case, it was definitely out of a full time students price range and my version of perfect was no where to be seen.

Sportsgirl – I had big hopes walking into Sportsgirl, known for their up to date trends and stylish range of clothes. However, I found they were out of stock and out of my size :(. They did have some good substitutes in pleather and jersey material so I would definitely recommend paying them a visit.

Valleygirl – Know for their affordable fashion I did find a pair that was the right shade of stone washed denim but they too were out of my size. When I walked into their second store, in the same shopping center, they didn’t even know what boyfriend jeans were …… fashion retail FAIL!

Mossimo – Didn’t stock the boyfriend jeans but I did buy a really cool top which will be featured on here soon hehehe.

General Pants – Also a good range in style and sizes but if you’re like me, it definitely burns a hole through your pockets.

Zero – I finally found a pair that was the right size, the right shade and even though it was $200 I thought “Whatever, I’m over it! I should take it and go!” It wasn’t until my boyfriend Chin convinced me not to settle and just to keep looking (aw! bless his sweet supportive heart).

Just before I was about to give up and call it a day, we decided that we would try one more store and of course, it was in that last store that I found it! Finally after a whole day of disappointment, my perfect pair was in JAY JAYS!  Yup that’s right, good old affordable Jay Jays. They had a good range of sizes (including mine), the right colour and it was only $60!

So if your looking for your very own boyfriend jeans which is good quality and don’t mind spending a pretty penny, definitely check out Glue, General Pants and Zero.

But if you’re looking to save hundreds, get yours at Jay Jays.

If you’re not in a rush to get a pair, go online on ASOS, they have big range and offer sizes for the petite and curvy.

After wearing these jeans over and over again, they are awesome! Totally comfortable, can be worn casually as well as chic. Just between you and me, they are my new fat pants since its so baggy hehehe.

What do you think about the new boyfriend trend?

 

Next week I’ll be posting the final photos from the Bridal shoot I styled, so stay tuned.

Thanks for visiting, I’ll see you guys on Monday, have a good weekend :)

Funny story behind this photo, when we were taking photos, my brother Mark came to help. It was here that we thought it would be a funny idea to have him randomly stand in the background just for fun, almost imitating an ad. The photo was never going to be featured on the blog but it turned out so good so I had to share it with you hehehe.
