This set of photos was taken by the lovely Sheryl for her school project! She contacted me for an interview and this was what I wore when I met her. It was my first time being interviewed about my blog and it was really exciting. I was decked out in my usual casual, yet edgy get up. I wore my oxblood jacket with pleather sleeves, which is one of my best deals ever (it used to be $60, I got it for $20!!) and is quite the statement piece by itself.

It was a great day and ever since then, Sheryl and I have been good friends! It's pretty awesome how blogging lets me meet all sorts of rad and talented people - both irl and online. I actually got approached by 3 bloggers / instagram friends this week at town!! Feels super surreal to know that people would actually recognise me and say hi. (///*u*///) I even got to hang out with Vernice for the evening (surprisingly, I did not buy anything at the crazy h&m sale) and she's a major sweetheart. I hope I have more awesome opportunities like this in the future! Fingers crossed. x 

FLOWER BOMB

If you have been hanging around my blog for a while, you would know I'm basically obsessed with anything floral. I have too much floral in my wardrobe, in fact. But the moment I saw this dress, I knew I had to get it. I knew I had to wear it as an oversized cardigan instead and all sorts of floral wizard-inspired outfit ideas popped into my head. For the rest of my outfit, I decided to go all black to combat the crazy floral print with my maxi skirt and a bralet with thin straps for some witchy vibes.

// Whoa it's February 1st. School is starting to get back to its usual grind and I'm still in holiday mode. Doesn't help that we are having our Chinese New Year celebrations right now (and constant access to yummy peanut cookies & pineapple tarts all around the house and lots of family reunion dinners). So much has happened recently and like everyone else, I am still figuring things out as I go along. But I am trying to stick to one of my 2014 resolutions which is to blog more regularly so I can't wait to get this blog alive again. x 

SEEING DOTS


Top, Cotton On / Polka dot leggings c/o Persunmall / Levi denim jacket, Brag Vintage / Velvet boots, H&M / Mambo backpack, parents'

We all got those days where we just can't be bothered to come up with a good outfit in the morning. Sometimes, I can't be bothered to even leave my bed. By the time I eventually do roll off my bed and have to quickly put together something decent without looking like a total slob, this simple top + statement bottoms (or vice versa) combo never fails me. These hypnotic polka dot leggings would definitely grab anyone's attention! Slip on a jacket to battle the freezing cold lecture halls and you're good to go. This denim jacket is like a warm little cocoon for me on such days and it even have a cute girl scout patch at the back! Ah, the beauty of thrifting unique vintage pieces from the comfort of your own room! :)
