Earn Your Stripes

Here's a little something I shot before I left for my trip to China, my first attempt at a little androgynous look. Really tho, if I had to play a boy, you've got this. A very comfortable and loose fitting outfit which I tried to balance out with red lipstick (Mac's Viva Glam Riri Woo). It was a good day of playing dress up, what do you guys think?

I know we are stepping into the fall season of fashion (cue all the dark colours, knit and coats, v excited to wear coats pretending it's chilly but actually about to faint from the heat) but I still feel like I have not worn all my clothes fit for summer and that is where I will acknowledge the fact: Singapore is sunny almost all year round and I can still get away with wearing bright colours and V neck crop tops in October!!! Can't. Wait.

China Photo Diary

I spent a week in Beijing and Tianjin this month, and it was as good as any escape from reality gets (really great) I had a great time stuffing my face with Asian cuisine every. single. day. The weather was lovely enough  to keep outerwear on without perspiring perpetually. I hope y'all have been well, here are some shots I got on the trip!

I will always have a soft spot for the sport luxe trend, any chance for me to feel athletic and cool, I'll take it!!! (I tend to run away from the ball rather than toward it) Plus, I am a sucker for stripe details, that I really cannot deny. 
I love the ribbed detail on the black material of the dress and I think the dress can be both formal and casual. I wore this dress on a day out to the movies so I wanted to do things more casual but to dress it up, I think all you'll need is a white blazer and some black stilettos and you are pretty much good to go.

It's definitely not the easiest to walk in as you are literally wrapped tightly in cloth. "Can't wait to get home so I don't need to suck in my tummy anymore." was a line that popped up in my mind countless of times throughout the day, the things I do in the name of vanity man. Nonetheless, still a look I like very much!

Seoul Photo Diary: Part II

FINALLY

I know, I know, my bad. Finally here with the second part of my trip to Seoul in June. Missing the streets of Seoul and its food and coffee and late night shopping and my list could go on, but anyway here are my all my favourite parts in photo vomit. I hope you enjoy!

Yes, I know I get carried away and forget I only have one pair of lips on my face








My trip to the Demilitarised Zone was definitely the best day of my stay in Seoul. Such an eye-opening experience, totally worth waking up at 6 a.m. for. 







Prepare for the spam of shaved ice desserts. I spared no thought before helping myself every. single. time. Well worth it, yum.
