Got Your Back

I've got a crazy obsession for backless clothing. I do mean crazeeey. Seeing bare back fogs up my mind, or rather, senses. Let's say for example, you see a girl wearing a completely uninteresting top in the ugliest colour ever, then she turns around and her back is... BARE. Ok honestly an ugly top is ugly no matter what. But upon seeing the exposed back, I will stop to reanalyze and in seconds dismiss my harsh first judgment and instantly develop a new found love. Okay, slightly exaggerated but to an undetermined degree, true. I may try to recollect my senses and rethink later on but that is rarely prompted unless I was with a friend who questioned my judgment. Could this be a fetish? Well, whatever the case, you can be sure my eyes will follow your back. Okay, starting to sound like a creepy old man, better stop.

An exposed back can really give an edge to a seemingly conservative outfit without looking skanky. It also adds the good ol' element of surprise :)

Casually Formal

Jacket from overseas, Top from overseas, American Apparel Disco Pants, Shakuhachi boots

 Throw over a loose-fitted jacket and tie the blouse, 2 ways of deconstructing your look.

Finally got around to wearing these boots I purchased from Shakuhachi a while ago. I figured it went well with the outfit. The AA pants was something that arrived only yesterday. It is so fabulous I just had to wear it the next day. Never had pants that fits so perfectly well. Look no further girls, this is the perfect pair.

Bringing colour back

Mink Pink knit, Don't Ask Amanda blouse, mustard pants, Sportsgirl shoes, Leopard fur bag

I felt like going colourful today but didn't want to look like a 180 degrees turn as I have been wearing pretty much black for the past few days. I wore a basic white knit over the green & mustard as an attempt to tone down the brightness which was also an excuse to hide the puff shoulders on my green blouse. At the time when I made my purchase, I was too taken by the colour that the puff did not matter. I prefer my blouses relaxed, boyfriend style.

That aside, I was reminded that I suck badly in word games. Really should start reading books.

There's something about Shoes and Metal

Beau Coops Garbo, Friend of Mine Hutton, Sam Edelman Pax Studded, Friend of Mine Pablo, Friend of Mine Claw

I have been lusting over these pairs of shoes/boots ever since they were released. The sight of metal parts incorporated into anything other than jewellery is interesting to see. Metal is such a refined matter. Even if it was smashed, crumbled or melted to the point of liquidity, it can still hold a certain level of refinement, if manipulated correctly. And that explains why I love working with metals for my jewellery. The thought of owning one of these metal(lic) pairs has been on my mind.

However, my recent purchase is one without the hard smooth finish that I so desire. So why did I not go for the first few that are listed? In fact, I am terribly in love with the range of Friend of Mines. Answer is simply because affordability and versatility are two huge affecting factors in my decision making. I am always more willing to pay for something that goes with everything. And as for this pair, I can see myself wearing it with every outfit under the sun. Also, the low heel means I won't have to sacrifice comfort for style. Perfect. I do realize the Hutton boots is on par in terms of versatility and practicality. Then again, paying more than $200 on footwear is a luxury I can hardly afford. No matter how beneficial it will be to my wardrobe. Maybe in the future, where I begin to reap the fruits of labour in my work field.

That is, if the fruits are abundant enough.

The boots also resemble the highly coveted Isabel Marant Dicker which is more than anything I could afford. So I'd like to think it was a good buy.


Indecisive me decided to let this one go and save up for something (better?) lol

The Hutton boot in tan is even more wonderful...


I got these girls from Why Who instead. Very similar to Swedish Hasbeens but chunkier and definitely more economical.

Started off seeking a refined pair but somehow ended up getting the complete opposite. Always happens.

One Teaspoon cardigan, Ksubi tank dress, Sportsgirl earring, fishnet leggings, Doc Martens

Stefanie and I indulged in a photo taking sesh after class. We had tons of fun. Nuff said.

About the outfit: I love all things chunky, comfortable & unique. Thus, I invest in a lot of knitwear which eventually led me to purchase this One Teaspoon cardi. The main selling point for me was how effortless it looked on the body. Then I came to appreciate the silver pins on it which doesn't submit to the standards of the norm. Now that the weather's getting warmer, I'll have to pass up on them soon. However with warmer weather comes warm weather clothes; cute crops and short shorts! Can't wait!

Hello Retro Sunnies!

Miss Unkon knit, Milk & Honey shorts, Karen Walker sunnies

Fluffy Pink Knit. Can someone say cute overload??? No way was I walking out of the house before toning it down. So I whipped out my darkest shade of lipstick & paired it with the toughest looking shorts; distressed studded with leopard printed pockets, put on my Doc Martens and I was ready to go. Oh and don't forget the sunnies.

Classic sneakers

Mink Pink jumper, Vintage Levi's, Converse sneakers

Today I took on the role of photographer for every picture in the post. Tried to implement more creativity in my shots but it proved to be quite challenging without a tripod, having to place my camera on the next best thing I could find. I ended up taking most of my shots from tables and it got pretty tiresome when I had to run back and forth in time for the auto-timer. I do have a remote clicker but haven't figured out how to use it yet. Last time I tried, it didn't work. I don't know what the problem is but will look into it again otherwise, it's just laying around and it wasn't cheap.

On a side note, though my shoe collection consists mainly of boots now, I still own a pair of Converse. So easy to wear and comfy, a definite wardrobe staple.
