Who has the bloody time to go work for a ‘beach body’? Not me. In the spirit of celebrating what flab excess I have carrying with me, trips to an Island getaway has always positioned me in between guilt and absolute shamelessness in flaunting what I (dont)have. Fashion magazines and FB timeline feeds are cluttered with influencer-ridden photos of their escapes (really pictures of their…

Playing with my latest find from a vintage store; a batik bomber jacket that made its way to my forever wardrobe today.

If you would ask me a few years ago on the prospect of owning pink ANYTHING in my wardrobe I would have whip out my fingers like a cross and hiss at you.

With brands embracing this current phase of mine, the progression and experimentation of granny chic looks have been a breeze and almost granted a license to rock this…

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.

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.

Driving for about 3 hours for the perfect OOTD seems like a ridiculous stretch, however, being the quirky if not, crazy adventurer myself; I set off solo for a 3-hour trip to explore an almost barren part of SoCal located south called Niland. Starting from Heidi Nazaruddin’s house (aka you can follow her on Instagram here @theambitionista) in Santa Monica, the drive from the coast…

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…
