COS jacket ⏐ ASOS jumpsuit ⏐ vintage Aigner clutch ⏐ Zara flats
I had gotten this COS jacket months ago during my trip to Melbourne. Seeing it being displayed on a rack full of winter wear, it was the only one that was wearable for warmer months. Also, I figured it would be a key piece to have in a wardrobe. Growing older (and perhaps wiser), I am leaning towards a more selective wardrobe whereby only purchasing items that I would foresee wearing for a long period. With that in mind, I don't hesitate in investing (depending on my very non-expandable budget) on essential apparel pieces that I know will not go out of trend and will last for the years to come.

C/meo Collective top ⏐ Topshop pants ⏐ Chloé bag ⏐ Jeffrey Campbell heels
I presume the upcoming week will be filled with long working hours, and increase in anxiety before my long awaited vacation that I have been waiting for the longest time. Let's just hope that I don't start my old habit of biting my nails. They say old habits die hard.

WILD SHEEP CHASE
There is this quaint little place on the first floor of shophouse unit serving waffles which were faintly infused with palm sugar and served with earl grey whipping cream. Waffles aside, there was the earl grey latte sprinkled with lemon peel. Everything was so dreamy and dainty that I had to bring out my softer side. No pun intended.

Heard about the new digital fashion house Ivyrevel? It is a digital fashion brand tailored to the digital age generation. So when a fashion brand's core business model is to only offer their products based on customer's demands, actively evolving based on current trends, it is hard to not take notice.
Based in Stockholm, Ivyrevel is purely digital and offers limited edition pieces that are exclusive only to the online market. Currently supported by H&M Group, Paypal and various influential digital business giants, the label's future growth seems promising. The label was successfully launched on April 7th, 2016.
The label takes inspiration from urban contrasts, strong independent women and the contemporary now. The end result is a collection that is polished, loud and extrovert with a focus on feminine silhouettes. Innovation is the core of Ivyrevel. The company is reshaping the traditional retailing practice by experimenting with machine learning ability, creativity and workmanship. In addition to that, the company pioneers the use of technology and special algorithms for trend forecasting.

These photos contribute to the memories in my phone. The bits and pieces that made up my life the past months. Now that my phone memory are at its limits, it is time for me to clear them but they deserve some 'light' in this platform.
1. Accompanying one of colleague for a fitting.
2. Birthday pastries for a certain birthday girl.
3. Typical lunchtime moments.
4. Saturday drinks.
5. Pure gluttony.

C/meo Collective bustier ⏐ Finders Keepers shorts ⏐ Keds sneakers ⏐ Chanel bag
I found these very underused silver Keds in one of the boxes from my previous relocation while visiting my parents back in Penang. In spite of the humidity and heat, and months packed in a dust filled box, the pair was surprisingly still in a wearable condition. All they needed was a good scrub, but before I even did that, I was already running errands in them over the weekend. As such, I am putting the rubber soles (which they are known for) into good use. Definitely sneak worthy. Instead of going all modern sport luxe, I am all for the classics and recycling past trends.

C/meo Collective dress ⏐ Keds sneakers ⏐ Louis Vuitton bucket bag
This dress of mine has been hanging in my closet for months now ever since I gotten it via Fashion Bunker. In spite of the sizing being off completely, I love this dress and its simplicity. It is actually a very simple dress, but with the faux scarf neckline, it elevates the dress to a certain minimalist sophistication.

Zara pants ⏐ Kimchi Blue camisole ⏐ Chloé bag
It was not until one of my colleague that I realized this pants of my mine looks like a 'sarong'. A traditional garment of Southeast Asia that consist of a long piece of cloth worn wrapped around the body and tucked under the waist. Perhaps it was the paisley print and the slit sides that adhere to this notion, and I love it. What's better than embracing my roots right?

Cameo top ⏐ Louis Vuitton tote ⏐ Forever 21 hat ⏐ Loeffler Randal sandals
I remember walking into Four Seasons Langkawi when I was 14, exclaiming how magnificent it looked. Second time there, and I am still in awe of the grandeur of the resort. The seclusion, the splendour and the grand scale of things. There I was; walking with my felt hat on and beach worthy apparel on the pebbled path, toting a bag stolen from my mom's closet, imagining myself having a stroll in Morocco. That would be nice no?
