Eureka Skydeck: Best Place for Panoramic Melbourne Skyline

Eureka-Skydeck-Best-Place-for-Panoramic-Melbourne-Skyline-2018

Watching skyline of different cities is always my ultimate favourite thing to do while I travel. Regardless it’s climbing to the top of a mountain or taking stairs to the top of a tower, we always seize every opportunity that provides a better angle of the landscape. Hence, when we were given the Eureka Skydeck 88 discount voucher, of course we will not miss the chance on going to this fantastic place which ranks as the highest viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere, we knew it was a view we couldn’t miss.

After we have purchased our tickets, we took the speedy elevator which whisked us up the 88 stories in just under 40 seconds (pretty amazing huh)!

One ticket costs – $20 AUS

The entire floor is full of thick and reassuring glass which allows you to see the entire city. From here, your could see the the coast of the Mornington Peninsula, Port Phillip Bay and mountains in the distance. Around the room, thirty viewfinders (and a few free binoculars) were positioned by the windows, identifying the many landmarks below us.

If you want a better shot without any reflection (and of course you’re not afraid of heights) I highly recommend you to go out to the outdoor terrace! If you’re going there during chilly weather, make sure you zip up your jacket as it can be FREEZING out there due to the heights and wind!

If you’re a sunset lover, I suggest you to check when the sun sets and go up there an hour before, so you could catch different views up there! This is the shot I took when the sun begins to set a little.

If you’re hungry while waiting the sunset, there is a bar that sells snacks and drinks. Grab yourself a cup of hot coffee and muffin and soak up the breathtaking views!

This shot is taken when the sun hits the horizon! Just look how breathtaking it is!

These shots are taken when the sun is below the horizon. Twilight is really a gorgeous brief moment. You can still some light visible in the sky due to sunlight scattering off the atmosphere.

And yes we waited until the dark has completely swallowed the entire city and the city is light up with lights (I can say all these views are worth that $20 we spent on the ticket)!

Denim Jacket Lookbook (Not Your Typical Blue Ones)

denim-jacket-lookbook-wendyquah-fashion-blog

No closet is complete without at least one denim jacket. And when I said that, I meant it as I have invested a few denim jackets in “50 shades of blue” and I love how they could make any of your look effortlessly chic. Recently I’ve got myself one denim jacket in black and another one in yellow. Hence, I think it is the perfect time to share my tips on styling these non-quintessential denim jackets!

***The yellow denim jacket & red striped top which I’m wearing are sponsored by Shein. As usual, I won’t be bias and all my opinions are truthful.

P.S. Don’t be a stranger, let’s connect on Instagram as well!

For the first look, I teamed the yellow distressed denim jacket with a black crop top, a black and white gingham print skort and a pair of black pointed-toe flats. Since, I’m wearing a refulgent yellow denim jacket, i think it is best that I team it with neutral shades so that the outfit won’t look like they are all over the place. In addition, it also allows the yellow denim jacket to do the talking!

On a side note: The yellow denim jacket is pretty boxy and it is in a crop length, so if you wan’t something oversize, make sure you upsize it. The size I’m wearing is size L. And to be honest, the denim jacket is not that thick, so I don’t suggest you to wear it to beat the cold.

For the second look, I teamed my black denim jacket with a red and white striped pullover (to add a pop of colour), a pair of black mom-jeans and a pair of white sneakers. I’ve got to admit black denim jacket is super versatile when comes to styling.

P.S I didn’t expect the quality of the red white striped pullover to be that good for the price.  It is thick and super soft, you could totally rock em when the temperature drops. Furthermore, the shade of red also turns out perfectly. Not to mention, the heart patchwork on the top also makes this pullover anything but boring!

For the third look, I decided to go monochrome// ALL BLACK. All black ain’t boring when you play around with different textures. For top, I wore a black basic tee. Then, I teamed it with a pair of black distressed skinnies. For shoes, I wore a pair of black sneakers with gold accent on it. I also wore a belt with silver hardware and carried a black mini crossbody with silver chain. Lastly, I added a pop of colour with my red beanie.

How to Style: 1 Floral Print Top 2 Ways

how-to-style-1-floral-print-top-2-ways

Floral print has become one of the timeless print that you could literally cruise from Spring to Winter! I love how floral print is so versatile and gives you plenty of opportunities to mix and match with other fashion pieces.

  1. For a more feminine aesthetic you could wear in Spring or Summer, team them with white pieces (such as a white skirt or any bright colours pieces). Or you may opt for bouquets in bold and bright colors, or in watercolor pastels.
  2. If you want something edgier you could cruise into Fall and Winter, tone it down. Even thought floral prints can be bright and bold, you can easily tone down your floral pattern by wearing them with black pieces. Or the easiest way is to throw them on with a classic denim jacket, a slick, leather jacket, and sporty footwear or your badass combat boots.

For a feminine and edgy look you could wear to a date night, I team a black floral print ruffled sleeves top (from Zara) with a black leather skirt (from Topshop). To inject a feminine accent, I wore a pair of black pointed-toe flats and wore a classic red lipstick. Lastly, I finished off my look by carrying a black chain leather crossbody.

For the second look, I wanted something casual yet put together to cruise from 9 to 5 and anything in between. Hence, I teamed the floral top with a pair of black distressed jeans (from Topshop). For shoes, I slipped into a pair of black suede mules. To create that clean look, I pulled my hair into a sleek ponytail. Lastly, I wore a pair of hoop earrings and carried a black leather chain crossbody and call it a day!
