Carte Blanche

Sunday, July 27, 2014

La Notte t-shirt  ⏐ wholesale lace skirt  ⏐ Saint Laurent bag ⏐ Stuart Weitzman heels
I am channeling carte blanche lately, staying true to the campaign I came up for work. There is something about an all white outfit that makes it better than an all black one. The whole get up gives out the aura of a very clean and polished look. Now I finally understand the mother's white attire philosophy. But of course, I still love black. Stark contrast between the two but I absolutely love it!

Lovely Lace

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Topshop camisole  ⏐ wholesale lace skirt  ⏐ Chloe bag  ⏐  Nose sandals
I have been wanting to find the perfect lace skirt, but to my disappointment, none fits right. Zara ones are gorgeous of course, but they always hang at my bum because sadly I have a flat ass. Frustrated, I flipped open my laptop, googled 'pencil lace skirt' and decided to make this $7.00 purchase from a random website. I gave it some thought for five minutes before submitting the order and said to myself if it fits, great; if it doesn't, at least I won't be losing too much. One week later, I got my parcel. It was my best and one of the cheapest purchase ever. Talk about cheap solutions!

I haven't been all bag craze in awhile, until this impeccable looking thing came along.
Black on red, genius! It really does beat the Noé anytime, anyday. Sorry but it is true. Mr Vuitton must be disappointed.

Dine Like A Gallomania

Monday, July 14, 2014

Wilfred romper  ⏐ Forever 21 hat  ⏐  Matiko platforms  ⏐  Saint Laurent bag
Gallomania is a term used to describe an obsession of all things French. There was one part of my life where I absolutely adore the French. French music, French culture, French fashion, French food, French chateaus... to a point where I enrolled myself to Alliance Franais to learn the French language. However, no regrets without a doubt. 

Of course as I grew older, this ridiculous obsession faded. However, there are still those days where I wished I was a Parisian, dressing up in an all black attire getting a quick fix of espresso before I proceed to my luncheon meeting at Rue Saint Honoré. In reality, me sipping espresso at one of the random cafes in Penang is more likely the case. Well, you can't run away from your reality.

Not That Black Errthang

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Topshop skirt  ⏐  Missha crop top  ⏐  Jeffrey Campbell heels  ⏐  Alexander McQueen heels
For a friend's wedding, I decided to put on this ensemble. It was basically two pretty simple separates but what 'made' the outfit was definitely the clutch. The flower prints on silk, until this day I still could not hold my admiration over it. It is so beautifully crafted, as how McQueen does it. Genius.

The Breakfast Club

Thursday, July 3, 2014

My short weekend trips to the capital have been filled with brunch meet ups with old friends, the occasional coffee break, quick retail fix and late night drinks. Of course, I am also there to fulfil some important errands. But other than that, I am busy taking in and noting down pretty memories from my fun filled journeys. 

I recently developed a love for homegrown designers, Dude & The Duchess in particular for its simplicity in design. The collection is minimalistic with a good flair and workmanship is surprisingly top notch. True to a quote from Donna Karan, "Design in a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable."
