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! (:

Cotton Candy

All designers want their work to stand out, and color palettes are a powerful tool as they draw attention and showcase creativity. A growing trend in web design is the use of less dominant colors, along with a shift towards pastel colors. Pastel colors are simply magical to me, while being peaceful and modest, they project a vibe of positivity and warmth. It requires the right kind of mix to achieve a good balance between color and tone when wearing light colors, since it’s easy to look washed out. Here’s an outfit I put together, casual, brightening, along with a bag from Kate Spade that reminds me of cotton candy.       As usual, hope you guys liked the outfit. I know my sense of style isn’t for everyone, so thanks for your support along the way. ❤

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?

Bubble Midi

See I told you, I like to feel girly once in a while too. Having indulged so long in street style, I felt like I was going out of my way for this skirt. I’ve always been infatuated with midis, there’s something magical about being able to show off your calves without exposing the knees. Since the skirt hits right below the middle, it creates an illusion of a longer and slimmer body. If you’re ever self-conscious about your calves looking unappealingly big, know that it’s all by contrast and midis can be a trusty choice. My bubbly skirt is a pleated A-line – an all time favorite from me, it enhances the hourglass figure by accentuating the waist and flaring out the bottom, and is undeniably flattering on any girl 🙂 I matched my skirt with a fitted lace tube to add onto the feminine feel, and of course nothing speaks classy like gold and basic pearls for accessories. “Truth is, I’ll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to …

Off The Shoulder

OK, everyone must know how much I adore suspenders by now – denim, long, short, leather straps, love’em all! (but maybe no clip-ons for me). This is a new one I purchased from Guess a while ago, I convinced myself that this was a must have because I don’t own suspenders in white… 🙂 Originally suspenders were worn because they were functional – fabric or leather straps worn over the shoulders to hold up pants. But gradually they were being worn for looks and have been diligently shifting in and out of fashion. I remember seeing old pictures of my mom wearing suspenders before my time, and me thinking that although cute, they were just WAY too yesterday and old fashioned. And look at me now… who could predict? 🙂 the runways possibly… In my previous looks I consistently wore Tees with my suspenders, this time I decided to change that up by going from preppy to flirty 😉 The other highlight has got to be the Zooshoo heels, I love how lengthy they make my legs look alongside the comfort and ease to walk in! 🙂

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 🙂

Sport Chic (Montréal)

I was pretty tomboy growing up. I’ve never had hair past my shoulders, and only wore sneakers and shorts pretty much until my senior high school years.  It’s not that I thought long wavy hair, lipsticks and pink teddy bears were weird – they just weren’t me. If we fast forward some time, though my style now is different, it’s not the opposite. It is generally feminine, but my tomboy years certainly left some trace as I’m a bit of a rocker girl, and am also into cute sporty looks. My top may look like a sweater but I’d consider it a shirt because it’s actually so thin! This was about $13 from H&M, what a steal! 🙂 I was instantly drawn by the sporty feel combined with the eye catching blue. You can already tell that it isn’t a crop top, but a tied up knot secured by my hair band. But as I mentioned in previous posts, I like to  wear pieces in different ways, depending on how I feel that day, and on this day, I thought making this a …

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 …
