(Hit the button to capture the feels) Springtime looks call for something romantic, blushed in innocence and fresh-toned scent and makeup. In a field of blooming wild chrysanthemums in Perissa, Santorini, I took my best Sofia Coppola references; inspired mostly form the Virgin Suicides and the infantile enthusiasm of Marie Antoinette within this ootd. Immersing myself in a Coppola’s set ala Marc Jacobs’ eau de parfum,…

I think it’s safe to say that a gold-centric lookbook has been long overdue. Heck, a lookbook post itself has been long overdue. For CNY, I figured it is about time, given with this amazing pieces selected by myself during a sourcing/loaning trip from The Oldees. While I was busy scurrying around for kimono pieces and qipao for an Oriental inspired shoot, I came across…

It might be because it’s getting closer to Chinese New Year or having seen Kinky Boots for the umpteenth time, but when it comes to color; I can never just stick to a hue and go with it. However, in this case, red has been on mind lately. Again, not sure why. perhaps it was after this recent purchase of a vinyl jacket I obtained…

The Sartorial Somnambulist

The first look book ootd of the year is dedicated to my second love in life; sleep. Thank heavens for the current fad of lingerie/boudoir looks getting their shine on in broad daylight-which is all okay when combined with pajama pants. Lace, satin; printed pants and toughened up with a coat, found on my vintage haunts. Wear it both ways with sandals or add granny…

Night and Day with Mini Lady Dior

Are you a lady of the day or a nocturnal dudette of the night? This is why I love things that glitter and sparkle; as they acclimatize well to both situations and lighting conditions. Now I’m not that much of a lady, but when the color pink is involved I instantly switch on that little molecule in me that carries the girly chic gene and manifests…

Thanks to the fashion world’s latest obsession with all things vintage, my next challenge isn’t really a difficult one to take onto. Having said that, the rest can’t really be said towards some of my favorite Milanese/Italian labels that have conjured impossibly layered looks on the runway. Call it granny chic, the trends we see on the catwalks of the Italian city can be a…

You may have spotted a new pattern obessesion with my lounge, breezy dressing: stripes. One thing you need to know about me, is that I don’t ever compromise in toning down my look for anything. I may just be grocery shopping or  running simple errands; but one thing’s for sure, I am not ready to just settle on something normal. For a breezy day out returning…

Shaggy do, barely any accessories and Urban Decay lippy in tow, I took my little afternoon rendezvous around town just because this feet is a little restless. Wearing a top and skirt I have got on sale at Padini/P&Co, I have gotten enthralled by the cheap thrill and the very athletic prints.

Los Angeles 2016 : OOTD Day 1

Apr 13th, 2016 #ootd, Fashion & Beauty rojakcouture 3 min read

Los Angeles need no introduction and my unending jibs about how much I miss this place. Since my last trip in 2012, I have always contemplated to come back again to really do the beautiful setting justice. By all means, in a more sartorially justifiable way of honoring the capital of the Golden State, of course! Together with Aiman, as I tag along with him…
