Weddington Way Bridesmaid Getup

When Weddington Way contacted me to take a part in their Bridesmaid styling challenge, I just knew I had to say yes. Its always been a long dream of mine plan weddings and such, creating the perfect ensemble for a once in a life time event, even though it is just a hypothetical situation in this case. The challenge is to create the ideal bridesmaid getup for a winter wedding, using one of the dresses supplied by Weddington Way. When I heard the word winter, the first thing that crossed my mind was holidays, and I associate holidays with the colour gold, which is why I picked gold as my main colour in the colour scheme, in addition to the navy blue. I wouldn't go as far as picking everything gold from head to toe, so I thought navy would be the perfect colour to pair with gold. All in all, I'm trying to keep the look as minimalistic as possible, not throwing in much jewellery, aside from the gold hair pin which I absolutely love.

Jumper - H&M | Leggings - Forever 21 | Transparent clutch - Etude House | Everly wrap boots - Jeffrey Campbell | Necklace - TOPSHOP

You gotta admit there's no better time to wear fuzzy jumpers than the holidays, and thats what I did last Christmas! I never really found the perfect time to wear this super soft jumper till then, since I find it to be quite festive and all. If you didn't know, I'm quite a hermit myself, I don't go out a lot, especially not to some fancy events. There have been many times where I could just chill in my house for the entire week without stepping a single foot out of the doorstep, but I just couldn't resist on missing out the Christmas frenzy so I decided to have a christmas dinner with some of my friends, (Even though it wasn't that Christmassy). Anyway, back to the outfit. Since the jumper itself is a statement piece, I just went for a sleek wet-looking leggings which are hands down my favourite piece of clothing, and of course my black booties. If I could pick a pair of shoes that I have worn out in 2014, it would definitely be this pair of booties! I don't know man, every time I'm deciding what to wear for the day, I would always end up building the entire outfit around them. But whats the purpose of buying them if you can't wear them for a gazillion times, right?

Getaway to East Java

Happy new year! Kicked of the new year with a short get-away to Java to witness one of Indonesia's hottest tourism spots : Mt. Bromo. The journey was definitely an epic one, being bounced around the whole way there in an off-road SUV, hiking up while the storm took its time to drench us all, and literally being blown away by the wind. Okay, maybe I wasn't 'blown away', but hey the wind sure did push me off a few times. Regardless of the fact that we couldn't witness the sunrise due to the heavy rain and seriously heavy fog, it was a good adventure. I would definitely go back there at some point in my life, since I did miss out on the sunshiny edition. On another note, I took the liberty of filming some bits and bobs during the trip, so look forward to that. But maybe a lil bit later, since I'll be facing what I could say is the most important examination of my education journey to date in 2 weeks time.

Poison & Wine

Flannel shirt - Uniqlo | Sweatpants - Uniqlo | Necklace - H&M | Cheetah printed Roshe run - Nike | Holographic clutch - Zara

Lately, I have been loving a juxtaposition of casual pieces and sport wears. Okay, maybe it hasn't just been recently, it has been going on for over a year. There was a time when majority of the fashion spreads were crowded by athletic style pieces and I guess that was when I started diving into this kind of style. I have been jumping from one sweatpants into another countlessly and chuck on sweatshirts as if I was just lounging in my home. You wouldn't believe just how often I receive snarky comments of people telling me I looked like I had just gotten out of bed or even funnier, "Are you in your Pjs?". One of my teachers had even forbid me to wear sweatpants to school. But I might as well wear comfy clothes where I can move around freely in, knowing that I would be stuck in the same building for 7 hours everyday. Also, with the option of accessories off the table, I just have no room to throw on some gold chains to make my outfit appear less "PJs looking". Anyway, just to clear it up, I didn't wear this to school. Not that there is much difference to my choice of outfits for school.

Sweet Disposition

Lace cropped top - Topshop | Maxi skirt - Handmade | Everly wrapped boots - Jeffrey Campbell | Bracelet ring - H&M | Purse - Forever 21 

With a tiny figure, I never thought I would ever go for a maxi skirt, I used to think I would probably look like a sinking ship. But it wouldn't hurt to try, would it? Made this maxi skirt a while back, inspired by one of my favourite british youtubers, Zoella. I find it amazing how she could always maintain a balance between edginess and daintiness. You would never cease to find a lil bit of vampy colours here and there along with a faint hint of delicate prints or lace, for that matter. You would probably scream at your screen at how foolish I am for ruining the whole delicate look going on with that pair of edgy boots. Well, I am just simply ripping a page in her playbook, juggling two contrasting kind of looks, plus my love for these boots just hasn't faded.
