More on Asymmetry

The sweater is a gift from my aunt while I was on vacation in China. Needless to say I love everything about it. If you read my earlier post featuring asymmetry, this is an addition to the collection – asymmetrical sleeves. Enjoy 🙂 Hope you liked the look! (:

Boyfriend Jeans

The idea of any boyfriend fashion is that you can borrow styles from the opposite sex, which literally means stealing from your partner’s wardrobe 🙂 Why is it so popular? Simple – it’s trendy, it’s comfortable, and most importantly, it comes off as effortless. Being effortless isn’t just a style, it’s a statement, backed by an attitude. And looking good effortlessly is just sexy. Remember the hot fuss over getting into men’s dress-shirts and wear it like a dress? Well, boyfriend jeans is the new one from that family and it has been a favorite for many fashion industry insiders. I’d just provide two tips here in terms of styling boyfriend jeans, one is to always keep the top simple, and second is to roll up the cuffs at hems so you can bring attention to your lovely heels. ❤   What’s your favorite boyfriend piece?

Styling Adidas (Pt. II)

As mentioned in my previous post, I styled the same garments a little differently to bring about a different vibe! I un-tucked my tee and swapped the heels for these slippers to present you my stylish grocery shopping look….haha 🙂 I love everything about this outfit because I adore big loose tees, can’t stand wearing pants (they are just the most restricting thing), and not to mention my toes loved the freedom. Even in the absence of class and elegance, this is very much effortless chic and I love it as it suits me. One way to not look sloppy when wearing an oversized tee that’s clearly too big for you, is to fold up the sleeves 🙂 It’s all in the details! You’re awesome for checking out my post, have a nice day! ❤

OOTD: Too Sunny

This was one of those hot days I actually wished I didn’t step out the door.  The sun was in my eyes, I couldn’t not look at the camera for more than 2 seconds, and if you thought the hat helped…it didnt…I was also wearing these ombre hair extensions, but since they aren’t long enough, they just ended up looking like highlights, not to mention they add to the heat too, ughh. …Alright, that’s probably enough complaining in one post… 🙂 Now, some positivity! I’ve always wanted to try a dress that’s a T-shirt in disguise, like this one! It has a slit on the side, so there are many ways I could style for the bottom, such as a long  pencil skirt, a pair of shorts, or some long skinnys with heels. I decided to go with shorts because as I mentioned in my rant above, it was one hell of a hot day. The coolest part of this is that it’s actually a high-low tee! Thought it was pretty cute and found the concept …

The School Girl

Oh em gee, my current obsession! A while ago I’ve given some love to the T-shirt dresses in this look. And now I’m back with more! This trend was prevailing in Asia, and is now creeping the local markets! If you are shying away from body-con dresses, this can be your alternative. It doesn’t contribute to a “sexy” look because it’s loosely fitted, but your body will thank you for how relieving and forgiving it is! It also gives off that effortless chic feel and bring out the cuteness in you. To enhance the look, I wore a watch, a backpack and paired some sneakers. I want to call this one – the school girl look 🙂 Sneakers right now is THE trend, and if you preach it like I do, you’re probably on your way to get a pair of Stan Smith right this moment if you don’t already own one.  My pair was purchased from Zooshoo (as seen in my previous posts), it isn’t from Adidas because, well, I’ve splurged enough for one summer 🙂

Vivre Montréal

As part of being Asian, I’ve visited many places with my family as tourists who do touristy things, such as: Wake up early so we have a whole day ahead of us to cover all those places mentioned on the internet Endless amount of photo taking only to look the same in every photo Everything is on schedule with lack of spontaneity Due to #1, we always sleep early, because we’re just way too cool for night life No souvenirs! Cuz you know, they are overpriced and are Made In China anyways It’s good to be organized while on vacation, but rules take the fun out of it! I’ve been to Montreal several times, but this time, I headed over to experience something else 🙂 What didn’t disappoint was definitely the fact that I could make my own schedule – visited places include landmarks (I tried Uber!), bars, downtown streets, steakhouse, icecream store and arcade! There are also so many cool places to take pictures at! Having heard a lot about people always looking fancy dandy over here in Montreal, I certainly wanted to impress, not …

Tie A Knot

Do you ever stare at your closet and find yourself at a lack of choices? And it certainly isn’t from a shortage of clothes, but rather you just can’t find what you need for who you want to be today! It happens to me only all. the. time. But, I am a firm believer of affordable fashion – splurging should only happen on items that I really like, and not to satisfy my need for more choices. This was one of those days, and having said the above – the alternative to buying new pieces, is of course to work with the existing! I’m not good with my needles and yarns, but I’m all up for simpler adjustments involving scissors, and ….tying knots! 🙂 This blue dress-shirt is actually something I wear for work typically under a blazer, and certainly not something I’d consider wearing casually over weekends. I decided to change things up and turned it into a part of this night-out look. It brings a totally different feeling, hence is now a new addition to my wardrobe at no cost! I wore these cute polka dot wedges because I felt …

Symmetric Allures

So… I found this lovely garment at H&M on sale, my god it was such a steal! ❤ As much as I love trendy items and looks, I absolutely adore unique pieces that aren’t commonly found on the streets. You’ve see long body-con dresses, but the fact that this one is loosely fitted actually makes all the difference. I did not over engineer my accessories with this one, just because I felt that the dress should get all the attention it deserves. I threw in the color brown for bracelet and bag since it nicely compliments the ensemble. I stuck with my golden strap sandals for this look because I just can’t get enough of them! 🙂 Rather than calling this a cotton maxi, it’s really more of an..ultra long shirt 🙂 Although it’s dark colored, it is thin, light and absorptive in material. So it’s fitting for those hot windy summer days!   On a side note I actually really enjoyed taking the shoot at this place! It’s behind a local high school, so it’s completely empty over the weekends! …

Super Casual

I’ve not yet expressed this, but I take every opportunity to avoid pants 😛 They are just so limiting! Now because of that, I am very much into casual looks with long sweaters or tees that can be worn as dresses. To me they are much more comfortable than your most stylish jeans. Here’s a basic long hoodie from Forever 21 in color grey, matched with my white Zooshoo sneakers. It’s a perfect look for gloomy & windy summer days, and the comfort is to die for! I am into unique accessories, and obsessed with the color gold this season. This bracelet ring is form Aldo for about $20, I fell in love instantly after seeing it. Here are some more shots of this look. Hope you liked this simple look!
