Off-shoulder, one shoulder, or cold shoulder, I’m totally lusting over them and seriously hoping they will stick around! Not only they give off that subtle sexy vibe by showing off some skin without bearing it all, they are also the perfect pieces to look put together effortlessly.
PFW 17 is the first fashion week which I have attended in my entire life. Have to thank Miss Selfridge, Warehouse and Dorothy Perkins for giving my sister, Kim and me the opportunity to take a look on what a fashion show looks like.
Today’s topic is totally unrelated with fashion or travel. It’s just me wanting to put my thoughts on the incident which I can never get rid from my head into words.
So let’s wind back to the Saturday, 25th March 2017. After attending a charity dinner with my dad and sis, we decided to pull over our car and grab some light supper as we hardly ate during the dinner.
In the middle of our meal, an Indian man (approximately 40 years old) approached us and asked for money. Usually we won’t straight away give them money. Instead, we give them food or stuff they need. As we do not want to give them the perception of getting easy money just by begging. Besides, sometimes they ask you for money not because of meal but for the sake of cigarette or even worse, drugs (You might not agree with me as different people have different perspective)!
Always treat people the way you wanted to be treated.
And the worse thing the lady boss did is she gave him the food so reluctantly! This really pissed me off, and all she gave was just rice and soup (and it costs us RM5, with that value of money, we should have just brought him some better food). Besides, I remembered when he asked for a plastic bag, she yelled at him AGAIN, saying he was annoying! Tsk, tsk what the hell is this shit?! We have already said we will pay for him, so treat him like he is your customer not a beggar! Even a beggar does not deserve this kind of treatment. If I were you, I would have just offer him the food, yes even everyday doesn’t costs you a hella dollar!

Last Saturday, which is the 1st of April, my sister (Celine) and I finally went to our first Coldplay’s (A Head Full of Dream) concert in Singapore! It was seriously one of the best time of my life. Until today, everything still felt so surreal and magical! I have to admit I’m still having the “Coldplay hangover”!
Neutral which is also known as “earth tones” has always been my all time favourite. Not only it gives you the endless versatility it also creates that clean and minimal look. So, when you are running out of colour ideas, reach for white, black, grey, denim, or beige.
5 Reasons You Should Invest In Neutral Shade Pieces
- Everything matches! There’s no need a single worry of the colour pairing will look odd as neutral shades complement each other very well!
- You can channel bold statement pieces. Neutral shades give you the opportunity to pay attention to different cuts, details and also bold statement pieces.
- Re-wear it like there’s no tomorrow and nobody will even realise! When you invest in neutral shade pieces, you get the endless versatility to create different looks just by pairing it with different items. For instance, a white tee and a pair of jeans = causal look (Monday); a white tee and a leather skirt = edgy vibe (Tuesday); a white tee and a slip dress = fancy a.m to p.m look (Wednesday)! See one white top gives you so many looks!
- Neutral hue pieces are the foundation of your wardrobe! I bet you’ve heard this statement a lot “I have nothing to wear”. This is simply because you have no neutral pieces to build your wardrobe!
- Spend less time getting ready because you know the fit is perfect and the colors will match!
Today’s look is all about elegant and sophisticated. For top, I wore my all time favourite, H&M ruffled chiffon long flared sleeved blouse. The ruffle and flared sleeves instantly create a beautiful movement to this look and inject a romantic accent. Then, I pair it with Uniqlo’s beige midi skirt. For shoes, I wore a pair of blush pointed toe flats from Charles and Keith. Lastly, I finished off my look with a blush bucket bag from Hieleven.

Nara, often bypassed by tourists either heading straight to Kyoto or Osaka, is Japan’s first permanent capital city and definitely a place not to be missed! Not only it owns a lot of UNESCO historical sites, such as Daibutsu, Todai-ji, one of the most majestic sights in Japan. Nara is also well-known for its wild and tame deers running everywhere (YES you can easily spot them)! Most important, Nara can be explored in a day or two! Hence, if you want to indulge yourself in a peaceful and scenic place, make sure you pay Nara a visit!
When we think of floral print, instantly we think of Spring. Cuz what else can be more perfect than floral patterns to associate our outfits with the Cherry Blossom season?
But now, floral prints can be worn for any season, depending on the colors, fabric and print you pick! You’ve probably noticed that one of the massive trend in A/W 16 is floral prints. So, you can now literally don your favourite floral pieces 24/7 and nobody is gonna judge you!
When it comes to buying clothes, yes I do love trendy pieces but I love to invest in clothes with versatility even more. This shows why I picked this black floral dress as the colour and length gives me the ease to cruise into any occasion and season effortlessly. All I have to do is jazz up with different accessories.
I bought this maxi last December during a Zara sales and I got to say I get a great deal for such an amazing quality! This maxi dress which crafted with super lightweight and airy fabric is great for the scorching hot weather and also a perfect piece for layering during the cosy season. it comes with two layers. The inner layer is a simple scoop neck spaghetti short bodycon dress. While the outer-layer which crafted with sheer chiffon is shaped in a form of ruffle neck, sleeveless bodice, and a billowy high low maxi skirt with some ruffle hem. Oh dear, ruffle my weakness how can I not purchase this frock! (if you’ve come across my previous posts, you’ll know how much I’m obsessed with them!)
Not to forget the highlight of this dress is the beautiful roses that dancing all over the black backdrop, instantly injects whimsical and romantic accents!
Another thing I’m totally vibin’ over this frock is the sheer chiffon that shows off my legs without really bearing it all. Creates that peekaboo style and make my legs look slender tho.
For this look, instead of being dressy from head to toe. I teamed it with my crisp white Adidas Super Star instead of heels. I then finished off this look with a pink mini chain crossbody.
