VELVETY


Was in the mood to create some graphics (apart from school work, definitely) after browsing through Pinterest and this is what I came up with at 2am – a really simple collage of the pictures I took over the last weekend at Dempsey after attending a classic cars exhibition. The location was really bad and I had to make do with this back alley shot. I struggle a lot with aesthetics and editing on Photoshop. I get inspired now & then but when it comes to the real deal, I almost always seem to fall short in delivering results. So, pardon me, I'm working on it.

I think slip dresses are all the trend right now, especially those silky ones that resemble pyjamas... And yes, they're right up my alley! It's simple and looks good alone or layered over a top. Amongst other Taobao shops, Michicat is one of my favourite & I purchase apparels from them really frequently. Am thinking to compile a list of my favourite Taobao shops some day, just to share. Let me know if you'd like that?

I love a good pair of ankle boots as well. I'm definitely a boots > heels kinda girl. This Simmi London pair is just the right height and I adore the mesh detail. The shop is slaying on so many levels I went all out & bought three pairs off the site. Uh huh, if you haven't got some of that Simmi Simmi, get on it already.

VISITING WILLY'S ROCK IN BORACAY







"Go to the Willy's Rock!", they'd say. Truly, the view there is the most spectacular. Situated at Station One, the Willy's Rock is the iconic statue of Boracay that you see most often on postcards. Compared to the other two stations, the sand there are much softer, which makes it a pleasure to walk in. And while you're taking in the picturesque view of the island, head to the famous Jonah's Fruit Shake Bar for some milkshakes! I personally recommend the mango one. 

The six days spent on this magical island was a much needed break from a year long of studies and work. It feels great not having to think of commitments for awhile. Will be blogging about the trip in series so do check back!

NEW BEGINNINGS




Wearing Mishima II body harness from HURL & grey midi from Cotton On

Trying something new & giving body harnesses a try. This one's from HURL, a local Carouseller who makes these really sick harnesses and accessories. You can have so much fun with harnesses, layer it above or under a plain shirt or anything really, and it'll add so much more character to the whole look. I can totally envision myself pairing this in other combinations, but we'll save that for another day. 

First post of the new year – 2 weeks into the new semester & I still haven't gotten used to the rhythm of school. Suffering badly from post holiday blues & can't seem to concentrate in class. This really shouldn't be the way, I hope things get better soon.
