NEON INDIAN

Wearing: Sass and Bide blouse, Shorts from Hong Kong, Rebecca minkoff bag, and Aldo shoes.

It's 2am here but screw it, I'm posting this anyways. So... a whileeeeeee back during summer, I had the privilege to do a bit of work experience with my sister at fashion brand management/PR firm, Electric Sekki. Throughout my experience, I realized what it was like being at the bottom of the fashion hierarchy, and the amount of effort it took to sort out different style codes and tax codes. Thank god I love clothes....if I didn't....I don't know how I would have survived, even on the first day. I wore this statement Sass and Bide sleeveless blouse that my mother gave me (thanks mum!!) on the second last day of the experience, and realized that Electric Sekki represent Sass and Bide! I loved the simple, yet shocking neon chiffon layer of fabrics in the front. In reality, the neon reaches down just below the hips however, since I had to move around doing ad hoc tasks....I tucked it in.

Have a good weekend all! xxx

Just some inspiration to get me through a moody, miserable and all around grubby day.

The Understated One


Outfit - All tops/outerwear from Hong Kong, Jeans are old ralph lauren (don't exist anymore). Boots are Monki. Bag is from Club Monaco.

Feeling super tired and a bit sick today, thus I feel very b&w. Notice the theme in all these photos...haha. Anyway, the outfit above was a fall/winter outfit I put together last year but forgot to upload on my blog. I love the layering of this outfit, and my strangely uneven socks, which, you may not be able to see.. The other 2 pics are simply..umm...statements! The second one came from a cool label from hk called 2%!

Change of view

Hi all, as you may have noticed, I've finally decided to change the title of my personal blog after having a long....long while to think about it. The link will still remain the same, however, I wanted a change in my title as i'm going through a "changing phase" in my life and quite frankly, I'm tired of using my own name as the title. Do you like the new name? "THE FASHION WONTON"......BOOM!

Have a great week!

Celebratory



Wearing a DVF dress, nine west shoes, rebecca minkoff bag, daydream nation crochet bracelet, and a guess watch.

I've been meaning to post this a while back, but school's obviously gotten the best of me by taking up all my time. Anyway, here was my outfit when I was celebrating my birthday! I remember feeling very colorful that day, thus, I immediately threw on this dress. From picking dresses that morning, I realized that all my dresses are either neutral coloured, or extremely bold and bright. No in-between. Polar opposites.

Remember to hype me on lookbook and chictopia. Also, check out & like my friend's new boutique here. It has loads of cute, new pieces for great prices!

Have a great week!
