Just one #ootd.
Please ignore the background. I wish the shutter button has a sensor to detect and avoid an ugly backdrop, i.e. a fast moving bus.
Wearing thrifted top, high waisted vintage pants from Next Door, New Look wedges, Zara bag.
Me and Mrs Jones (The Grocer)
If you have only tried the breakfast items at Jones The Grocer go for a change and order their pastas. The mushroom is super delicious. Mish mash of all kinds of mushrooms in light creamy sauce. I still have cravings for it until now. FYI, we dined at the Ion outlet, so much cosier and nicer for dates and special occasions.
Wearing pleather t-shirt from Taobao, Cotton On leopard print pants, Zara heels.
Old is Gold
Wow. This space has been collecting dust huh. I guess this is probably the effect of being a working girl. So I found these set of photos taken at Herve Leger during the Women’s Fashion Week. Before they collect more digital dust, I decided to put them up here. Enjoy.
Wearing necklace from Bangkok, Zara bag, New Look wedge and vintage dress. For more vintage goodies visit Next Door.
Oui love it!
Some photos from my mini birthday celebration. Rumour has it I’ll be packing my bags for a getaway soon. Can’t wait!
Anyway boyfriend brought me to a swanky French restaurant in Jakarta for my birthday dinner. Loves it. Even if he brought me to a mie bakso stall by the roadside I’d love it still. Really.
Food was good especially the lamb rack and foie gras which I will stop eating one fine day. Sharks fins has been off the menu for couple years now, next would be this delicacy.
Been saving this dress I’ve got from Hong Kong for a special occasion and this was the perfect time. Wore with Zara bag and Zara silver kitten heels which was a gift from a good friend! I’m sucha a Zara maniac.
Girls, if you’re looking for affordable vintage dresses please head over to Next Door! Thank you!
Older none the wiser
That’s exactly how I feel.
Turning 18 was a big deal. 21? Even bigger. But somehow once you passed that significant age, the years zoom by as fast as the speed of light. Before you know it you’re 2_.
And you’re still catching up on life. Trying to learn, trying to soak up as much knowledge, trying to achieve, trying to survive, trying to breathe, trying to live.
Although I do feel all the experiences I had taught me a thing or two. I think. Whether it’s good or bad, that’s another story.
At least I’m trying. That’s good. Right?
Happy birthday to me.

Patrick Owen at MYthology
Finally after months (okay probably weeks) of meetings and also discussions via endless Whatsapp and emails, the Patrick Owen first collection finally materialised. We’re very excited to present you this collaboration between us four (Shane, Tarandip, Liyana and myself) and Patrick Owen, where we were sort of “design consultants”. Nevertheless, I had fun throughout the whole process!
Seen here are some of the pieces from the collection that are carried at MYthology (as in “my mythology”). If anything catches your fancy, drop by the boutique located at on the uber chic Club Street or visit www.patrickowen.net.
I’ll be posting behind the scene photos in my next post, so stay tuned for that one. Otherwise more photos here.
Happy New Year to my Chinese readers! As the rest of you, enjoy the long weekend!
These are in my fashion book
Dress up your coffee table with these books. After you’re done reading of course. I’m eyeing some of them, actually all of them, aside from Kelly Cutrone’s Normal Gets You Nowhere. Girls, put down your copy of Fifty Shades of Grey and bury your nose in one these books instead. I’m building my fashion library slowly but they won’t stay on the shelf where my Dan Brown and Sidney Sheldon series sitting collecting dust, which, let’s be honest, don’t look as good on tables as compared to these. Especially that Chanel. I mean I don’t even know what the contents are but oh boy if this is the only Chanel I can afford I have no problem with that.
But first, I need that coffee table.
Hey 2013, please be kind.
Wow time flies at supersonic speed huh? It’s 2013 already? It’s almost February and I’m not even done with 2012.
Anyway, we -me, Shane & Tarandip - decided to host a NYE Party. Booked a room at M Hotel, invited everyone anyone three days before 31 December and voilah, it was a blast. Crazy folks, california rolls, highland mist - a damn good mix. More photos here.
How’s 2013 treating you so far?
5 Must-See Fashion Documentaries & Films
The September Issue
Ever wonder what goes on behind the biggest issue of the year? Watch this and find out what it takes to produce American Vogue’s September issue. The September Issue shows Anna Wintour more than her signature bob, shades and non-existent smile and how she trashed Creative Director Grace Coddington hard work within seconds.
In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye
I haven’t seen this one. Interview with all of Vogue’s editors. Not that promising (not much drama or true insights) based on the promo clips but I’m sure it still be good. Pretty much tells you what a fashion editor does technically.
Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel
“You’re not supposed to give people what they want. You’re supposed to give them what they don’t know they want yet.”
A fashion icon before we even had any. This Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue editor was a true fashionista with a creative mind who fearlessly pushed the fashion boundaries. Very inspiring!
Carine Roifeld Revealed
Former French Vogue Carine Roitfeld revealed all about her family in this show who inevitably are heavily influenced growing up in such industry. Her son, who is so so good looking, opens art galleries and her daughter ventures into modelling and designing. For the Wintour fans, she made a cameo appearance and spoke to Roifeld about “the letter” she sent. Watch to find out if she ever will take over Anna Wintour’s job.
Bill Cunningham New York
Ah, the original street style photographer since the 70s before it catapulted into a (fashion) world phenomenon. Very entertaining to watch Bill Cunningham trailed and chased fashionable people all over the streets of New York! And he’s in his 80s. Amazing.
