finally


Duster coat (UK4) | New Look Petite
Velvet cami | Anteprima (thrifted)
Skirt (9-10 y/o) | Zara Girls
Shoes | DVF
Bag | Givenchy
Tinkerbell necklace | thrifted

Have had this velvet cami for at least 4 years now and finally wearing it for the first time! Love that it seems like I'm not wearing all black for once, but in my head I actually am because it literally looks like black velvet to me when I was getting dressed. Magic of light.

t e e


Leather vest | Maje
Boots | ASOS
Bag | Mulberry
Leather bracelet | Balenciaga

The focal point of this outfit is this amazing tee but it sucks that I can't remember who made it! I got it a local weekend market and it was a sample item by a local SG label but I can't recall the label name, and the tee isn't tagged. I love the print on it!

denim jacket | go big or go home


Tee | Indibrand (Korea)
Denim jacket (UK 12) | Topshop
Skirt (11-12 y/o) | Zara Girls
Bag | Balenciaga
Shoes | ASOS

Yeah, I like my denim jackets to be oversized. (I'm usually UK2-4 on ASOS). This has got to be one of my favourite denim jackets ever! Apart from it being black/greyish, I'm so glad I got it in this size. It doesn't really have much rips in it to begin with but I'm sure I will wear the hell out of it in the years to come and gradually rip it (hopefully. that's the plan lol).

Also, this super comfy tee was a steal from my trip to Korea last Spring. I love Indibrand, they have so many quality basics at really good prices. (ok, I just went onto the Indibrand website and browsed around for a good half hour lol) Loving their summer stuff now, tons of lyocell and linen shirts.

swing


Leather jacket (UK8) | Mint Velvet
Trousers (UK2) | ASOS Petite
Cami top (UK4) | ASOS
Watch | Hugo Boss
Shoes | Nine West

I don't usually like ruffles/tiered layers but this cami top seems to be both but neither of it exactly at the same time. Maybe that's what I like about it! The simple cut (I'm sure this design/style can be found everywhere now) but the colour was what really drew me to it. It is, however, quite sheer but I sort of expected that. It's such a pretty shade of greyish-pinkish-Idon'tknowwhatcolour haha. 

It's only Tuesday but I can't wait for the long weekend already!!

long and crop


Longline blazer (UK4) | ASOS
Ribbed top (UK2)  & trousers (UK2) | ASOS Petite
Shoes | Antipodium X ASOS
Bag | Givenchy

So... I've coincidentally gone for an all ASOS look again (almost) haha! It's such a common thing for me to do because I shop on ASOS loads (thanks to Petite collection) and I love getting workwear on ASOS. These shoes are such a surprisingly good find. I bought them several years back (check out the very first time I styled them here and two of my fav looks here). I think the simplicity of this outfit has a little more sophistication to it and it's pretty much how my usual get up and go work outfit looks like these days.

sateen lace chiffon


Dress (XS) | Zara
Cardigan (XS) | COS
Shoes | Aldo
Watch | Nixon
Bag | Mulberry

I've always been a fan of slip dresses (to wear out) and especially one of my favourite way of styling it is with a longline jacket. Love the navy textured body of this dress and the lace trim, which has the perfect amount of peekaboo slip. I doubt anyone taller than me can wear this as a dress though, if the it were any shorter I wouldn't be able to pass it off as a going out dress either! Zara makes the best slips, seriously! Most of my favourite slip dresses are from Zara, and they are more affordable than many others out there (without looking too cheap too!). This checkered slip dress is one of them -it's actually the first slip dress I've ever bought and I am loving it loads even now. Just the kind of style I like going for on date nights out!
