Cherry Blossom Baseball Jersey – 10 DEEP | Clutch – Armanie Exchange | Boots – ZU Shoes 

Photos by Yunn Chin Photography

Hello everyone!!!

It’s that time again and I’ve been DYING to share this outfit with you!!!

Earlier this year, Chin and I went for a little trip to Melbourne, it was there where I had my first experience entering into a Culture Kings store. After taking my first step into what I would now call complete “Street Style” bliss, I quickly realised what the rave was all about.

The store’s main target market are males and with only a hand full of items available for women, however, I still saw it as a gold mine of unisex street clothing. Everything I laid my eyes on I wanted! It was there I came across this 10 Deep cherry blossom baseball jersey. I’m gonna be honest with you, for me (since I am a complete tight ass with money – student life -.-‘) it was pricey, $130 to be exact. I couldn’t help myself! the WANT was far too great to resist and in my defence I only fork out on things that I so desperately desire. Plus it fit Chin perfectly and he really liked it too so I looked at it as purchasing something for me and him hehehehe.

Since the shirt is so distinct, it is unfortunately an item that can be noticeably re-worn but honestly, I love it that much that I will wear the crap out of it and not give a damn hahahaha!

I ended up sporting this number at fashion week, I first thought it was a bit too riskay wearing it as a dress (don’t worry I wore shorts underneath!!! hahaha) but I thought “What the hell, it’s Fashion Week, might as just do me” and what do you know, it was featured on Getty Images and Zimbio.com :).

Thanks again for visiting!!! It’s always a pleasure to have you and I’ll catch up with you girls and guys soon.

Minimalistic with sleek black, white and greys plus anyone can rock their gear men and women (you all know how much I love wearing my boyfriend’s clothing HAHAHA!).

LAN YU

Lan Yu’s bridal gowns were absolutely Stunning!

The gowns were displayed on elevated boxes through a live installation allowing the viewer to walk around the designs. A mix of live models and mannequins were used to display the gorgeous gowns. Each of the 12 gowns represented a star sign, all beautifully designed with intricate fabrication, delicate beading and lace. We had the pleasure to attend the Lan Yu after party where we were able to view the gowns in closer detail.

The designs were simply amazing, I loved every single gown and I especially enjoyed the interactive installation in contrast to the typical runway show.

I had the great pleasure to meet the insanely talented designer Lan Yu and she was just as gorgeous as her gowns; incredibly graceful and elegant.

JAYSON BRUNSDON

‘Rio’ A collection filled with jacquard and silk dresses, with shimmer tones of earthy colours; this is a collection I adore. Exotically wild with golds, coppers, sequences and feathers; designs that translates the fun and the tropical environment of Brazil.

It was truly a breath of difference compared to the designs I had seen throughout fashion week.

MACGRAW

Oh MACGRAW how I adore you!!!

The peter pan collars, the puffed sleeves, the polka dots, the stripes, the print on print, everything about this collection is GORGEOUS!
This collection was one of the few that I could see myself wearing everyday. Current, youthful, fun, relatable and cute, I simply must have it all hahahaha!

IXIAH

I have so much love for this label!!!

The amazing designer behind Ixiah, Krystel Davis never ceases to amaze.
I have followed Ixiah for some time now and WOW! It has grown into an astonishing label with such a unique aesthetic, standing apart from the rest.
Debuting for the first time in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Ixiah pulled out all the stops with their signature detailing, tribal aesthetic, incredible fabrication teamed with bold and strong silhouettes.

It was incredible!

AJE

Reflecting on Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Aje by far had one of the best displays. A live installation showcasing their designs through live models blissfully relaxing around and under a Sahara-like cabana.
Peekaboo sheer fabrics with lace and detailed floral beading, the designs were beautiful.
We were able to walk around the collection and look at the designs closely whilst champagne and canapés were served. Viewers were able to freely converse about the collection, it was an interesting change of environment compared to the intense atmosphere at a runway show.

SONG FOR THE MUTE

Song for the Mute closed the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week with a daring and edgy Men’s collection. Grey tones with black and white layered aesthetic teamed with ribbed and textured coats. It was also interesting to see Lupe Fiasco close the show and he did it with such attitude and swag that only a Rapper embodies.

Masculine, intense, dark and structured designs; it was a great way to end our first Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

WILL BE.

By William Brunton – Sydney

It was a great way to start the show with a men’s collection, the audience didn’t mind either hahaha!
Blocks and panels of basic black, white and grey used with a simplified print, which resembles stone paving. Masculine suit elements with casual street wear and slippers made an interesting and unexpected combination.
Though it was only men’s wear that was showcased I was pleased to hear that the collection is also available for women :).

ASANOVSKI 
Fatima Asanovski – Sydney 

The use of textural fabrication and the structural silhouettes was highly intriguing. Calculated geometric cuts, transparent pops, minimalistic design created a modern and futuristic aesthetic.

DIYANA KOSSO
(Self-Titled) – Sydney

Romantic prints with touches of peek-a-boo sheer, frills and florals, this collection was playfully girly, feminine, whimsical and cute. Especially loving the touch of red lipstick in contrast to the baby blues and whites.

GABRIEL LEE
(Self-Titled) – Sydney

Structured jumpers and jackets with white pearl embellishments, vibrant floral print design styled with matching hats and bags with sheer high socks; this collection was to die for! I loved everything about it, I could not think of one item that I would not love to have in my wardorbe.

OPHELIE
By Sean and Sheila – Singapore

Elegantly edgy and high class, this oriental gold and black collection inspired by the Japanese Yakuza and uniform element inspired structure, left a big impression leaving me speechless. The embroidery, the lace, the pin stripes, the different use of fabrics and the structured lines, every bit of the collection was perfect!

PAUL NATHAPHOL
(Self-Titled) – Singapore

Royal blues, bold reds and greens, deep plunge lines and layered peplums. Edgy and vibrant designs with a strong unified statement of patterns and fabrication. I especially loved the jewelled embellishments on the gowns.

SARA ALJAISM
(Self-titled) – Sydney

Lace and sheer free flowing gowns, elegant, romantic designs with such presence and strong feminine silhouettes. Delicate lace embroidery with metallic pops, gowns that glided down the runway with such ease.

HELLO :)!!!

I know this post is exactly a week late; unfortunately I was completely bedridden with a sinus virus last week and for the life of me I could not even lift a finger.

Finally out of my prison of immobility, I’m super excited to share this outfit post with you all!

A couple of weekends ago, Chin and I decided to do a mini road trip to Wollongong, a city that is a 2-hour drive away from Sydney.

It was a really hot summer day, so I thought I would wear something fun, casual and girly. I managed to pull out this old silk, crochet trimmed crop, which I have had for almost 6 years and paired it with high-waisted shorts.
The piping on the shorts, visually adds length to your legs and having longer looking legs is never a bad thing, am I right ladies? hehehe.

I matched the crop with fun laced flats and wore light make up to give it more of that summer feel (to be honest, I hate wearing a lot of make up in summer, because of the hot weather, it just feels like my face has melted off by the end of the day hahahaha).

It was a super fun day; we also visited the Nan Tien Temple, which I thought was absolutely beautiful! Next time your in Wollongong I’d definitely recommend checking it out :).

Now, I mentioned before in my previous posts, that taking photos in front of a big camera in public is very daunting. No matter how many times I do it, I never seem to completely get use to it.
So with this outfit post, Chin and I thought we would try something different; we brought along the camera and decided to do a impromptu shoot.
Between you and me, it was so much better than standing in front of a camera and “posing”. I’ve said it before; I am not in anyway shape or form a model, so this way of taking photos was more in my comfort zone. It was a more realistic view into how I am and how I wear my clothes.

With that said, every now and then we will be doing these types of photos, just to spice things up.

Thanks for visiting!
I’ll see you on Thursday and I promise this time I won’t be sick to miss it ;)

Fossil has done it again! They have opened another amazing store in one of Sydney’s shopping destinations, the Queen Victoria Building.

For those of you who have just tuned in, I am a big longtime lover of Fossil and I was especially excited when they had invited me to their Leather Preview Launch earlier this year in May.
So as soon as I got the invite to attend the store launch, I was even more excited that I found myself counting the days down to the event (bit embarrassing to admit).

Held on the 11th of December, it was all class; live Jazz music, the best finger food I have ever tasted (I had eaten before hand too, so you know it’s good when your eating on a full stomach), incredible mojitos served in jam jars, chocolate covered strawberries and great company.

The store set up was so cute! Against the back of the counter wall, there were Christmas tins aesthetically sequenced. I’m devastated that I didn’t get to take a photo of it but it is something you will need to see for yourself.

We were fortunate enough to get a first look on the latest Holiday ‘Season of Enchantment’ collections and there was even a live artist who created custom designed tins. Check out more of his work on Instagram under @skullavera

Fossil has always produced such great quality products laced with an authentic vintage feel through their designs and hardware.
We see through their collections a modern twist on their recent designs. Creating more of a fun, edgy look, however, still staying true to their original vintage aesthetic and because of this, I am always going to be a big fan!

Check out their new store just in time for the end of the year sales at –

Event Fashion Food Photography Store Launch

If you remember Last Month on the blog, Ixiah, an unbelievable label released their Resort 13-14 summer collection.

For those of you who have just tuned in; Ixiah is a label I came across for the first time at Fashion Weekend and immediately fell in love with the unique, intricate and gorgeous designs from designer Krystel Davis.

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to their very own store launch at level 1 Mid City Centre, Pitt St. in Sydney. I was so excited for the event, I couldn’t wait to see the collection up close and personal, plus I had my eye on this stunning Aztec print maxi dress hehehe.

The set up was incredible! From the layered necklaces and neckpieces to the simplest strand on a garment, the pieces on the mirrored manikins were styled to absolute perfection. There is so much personality and difference in the designs of the collection and it was so beautifully translated through the layout of the store. The staff was so kind and welcoming, already a handful of people at the event were trying on pieces from the collection.

I also got to meet the designer behind the label, the incredibly talented Krystel Davis. I had spent the night trying to work up the courage to speak to her. Chin (partner/photographer) was so surprised, he said “You’ve never been like this before” and he was right! Usually I just go for it, however, this time I came down with a case of being starstuck. Just before I left I finally snuck in a somewhat nervous conversation, she was gorgeous, amazing and so sweet!

The collection will only be temporarily open to the public at their pop up store in level 1 Mid City Centre, Pitt St. in Sydney. So as soon as I get my Christmas shopping out of the way I will be back with a vengeance and shop to my hearts content.

Here are some snaps from the event:

Spotted Crystal Ling from Reebonz, I was so happy to run into a familiar face :)

The models were amazingly styled, they seriously looked like amazons, and as usual  I look tiny next to them hehehe.

Ixiah_opening_05With the designer Krystel Davis, she looked absolutely stunning in her very own designs. I especially loved how the necklaces were layered and used as an accessory over her heels…..amazing.

Thank you again for stopping by and stay tuned on my next outfit post ;)

Have a good weekend!
