turning japanese

My cousin gave me this maxi skirt from Uniqlo for Christmas. No matter how much I wish I could pull off a maxi skirt, I just don't have the height for it. Thankfully, I am also in search for the perfect midi to pair with my footwear of choice, the boots. :) 

So, a snip here and a tuck there and voila!

For this look, I was inspired by the Japanese and decided to play up with the proportions. Of course, when I was styling this, I didn't realize this proportion is actually a thing now. Embracing frumpterable!

I paired the midi with an equally voluminous top and bell sleeves. 

And of course, my combat boots to top it all off!

beauty finds

Some of latest discoveries:

1. Clean Face Oil free BB cream from The Face Shop and 2. 24/7 Glide-on eye pencil in Perversion from Urban Decay 

I was using another BB cream from The Face Shop but noticed that it makes my face even more oily and I literally feel like my face is melting at the end of the day. So decided to try this BB cream from the Clean Face line. (I also use Clean Face extra mild toner which my skin is loving!) I've been using this for 2 weeks now and it gives my skin a much lighter, more breathable feeling. As a bonus, it has a lovely mild non-make-up-ey smell. :P

The eye pencil was an impulsive buy as Sephora. As the name suggests glide-on doesn't leave nasty clumps when applying or after wearing it for a while. Loving how a black kohl produces that instant drama!

the perfect pump

I love my good old black court shoes from Charles & Keith but it's gone through so much beating as they are pretty much my go-to everyday pair. So, last weekend, I went searching far and wide for the perfect pump (right everyday heel!) and ended up at an unlikely place - Nine West. (Not a big fan of the brand.) But was sold by this comfy pair with an interesting origami-like heel AND selling at 50% off!

 My perfect pumps must have the right shape AND the right height since I do a lot of walking and running after the bus!

Went to Manila for a very short trip last month. I managed to sneak in a quick trip to Blanco at SM Aura and scored this neon top sale for half-off!

I've paired it with my gray trousers for a full neon effect! 

The trousers are Ma's old pair from the 80s! I love the loose fit and boxy cut (and I think I've spied some similar silhouettes at Zara lately.) 


I was wearing: Blanco neon top, Ma's old trousers, studded sandals from H&M.

wishlist: printed kimono-style blazer

Hi guys! Sorry for the lack of updates lately. Life has been full of distractions lately - a (too) short trip back to Manila (where I scored neon tops from Blanco on sale!) and getting sick (you can tell when you're getting older when a garden-variety flu is so hard to kick!), I didn't have much time nor the energy to get ~dressed up. On these days, I end up on my favorite looks - skinny jeans or pencil skirts and ankle boots. 

Anyway, I was finally feeling better last weekend and decided to go window shopping. Most stores are now stocking up on their Spring collection and I can't be more than happy to see colors again (and weather-appropriate pieces!) 

Dropped by Zara and fell in love with this kimono-style blazer. 

I love the print and the colors and how it can immediately elevate any look. Will look so good with an all-white look (I'm so drawn to white lately!) or a black pencil skirt and tank top. Costs a bit bit on the steeper side for me but I'm trying to justify the purchase by saying the last time I've bought a blazer was 2 years ago at Topshop. It's time for a new one!

combat boots


This is a long overdue post.
As a 90s girl, I've always been partial to boots of any shape and color. But what was really missing in my humble collection is a pair of mannish/combat boots. I was fantasizing about how good they will go with my new favorite midi length pencil skirts or skinny jeans or denim shorts. *drool* So I was delighted when I came across this awesome pair of brown combat boots at H&M.

Been pretty much living in these boots since I got them in November. I love them to bits.

just in: holiday finds and gifts

I got some pretty awesome gifts for Christmas and from the post-holiday sales.


1. Uniqlo Maxi skirt - gifted. It's a bit too floor-skimming so I'm thinking of bringing this to my friendly alteration auntie to turn into a midi.
2. Striped pencil skirt from F21 - gifted. In midi length. Love it!
3. Neon knit top from Zara - gifted by Ma. Loose, slouchy and neon  are some of my favorite things.
4. Polka dot skirt - Picked up from Landmark in Manila. In my new favorite midi length and the best thing about it is that it cost PHP350+(SGD10!) only.

Great finds from the post-holiday sale from Lovisa. Love that statement neck piece marked down to SGD20. It can pretty much go with everything I own! And the gold ring is very punk-rock selling for SGD13 only.
