Happy new year everyone!
Today, to me, is the real beginning of 2015. Today is when everyone goes back to work and back to school, back to the daily grind. 2015 for me is all about putting ideas to reality, working hard to create something I've always dreamt to happen while letting time do its magic; reminding myself that we are simply human and can't forsee everything, and most of all, to enjoy living life!

Cheers to a great year ahead! X

As the cliche goes, your wisdom should be directly proportional to your age. I'm not sure if the Tina of 2013 is a far cry from the 2014 version, but I do know this:
  1. Flat (stylish) shoes = happy feet
  2. Bigger pants mean you don't feel your butt getting bigger due to excessive enjoyment of food, also it looks pretty kewl
  3. I miss my permed hair circa 2012-2013
  4. Bioderma Crealine H2O is the shit
  5. Big changes are fast approaching-- ETA January 2015
Hey it's almost Christmas! Have a great one xx

12DEC2014 // FEMME

I've surprised myself as well as a few others around me with a little bit of a feminine streak as of late. I've been finding myself gravitating towards the lady silhouettes and pieces, it could just be the upcoming holidays or something of that fuzzy-feeling sort. I make up for it by keeping the footwear slightly unisex/masculine, this way I still have a little fun mixing and matching between inspirations. X

05DEC2014 // BOXY

Sunnies Studios / T-shirt: Maison Martin Margiela / Trousers: Vintage (altered) / Sneakers: EYTYS (from Hoodwink) / Kaito Bag: WabiSabi

It's no secret that I'm drawn to everything baggy and comfortable. The feel of this t-shirt is really way too comfy for my own good, and really great to pair with absolutely any bottom. These pants are a newbie to my closet, I just had them altered about two sizes down and hemmed just on my ankles, they too are a very soft but thick material which I love, to hold its boxy shape. Perfect to match with chunky shoes!

Been waiting a while to see WabiSabi's new collection and now it's finally out! They are really one of my favourite local brands, the quality is just amazing. For this style in particular, I love that you have the option to expand the bag if you like to carry a lot of things. I am so sold on versatility!

28NOV2014 // HELLO FROM 2013

Sharing some photos from almost exactly a year ago that I totally forgot about. It was worth noting that nothing much has changed for me besides the hair. This is still one of my favourite ways to wear a shirt (one or two buttons done up), with a white t-shirt inside half tucked. Joggers are still on regular wear for at least every other week, and on occasion, footwear with height just to remind me that I'm a lady after all. 

As we get older and more sure of our personalities,  so do our personal styles. I strongly believe in an improving 'core' wardrobe that we can mix and match while adding new pieces that keep it fresh with the times. Needless to say, if we buy the right things that are of our style identities, I think it could, it should last a year or even longer in our wardrobes.

Sunnies Studios / Top: Giordano Ladies (revised) / Bottoms: Vintage by Terriblay / Clutch: DIY

Been on a little bit of a blog hiatus by accident. Working on a super exciting small project which I will disclose as soon as it comes to life!

Meanwhile here are some pieces I've found myself wearing a little more than usual. I realized that you could figure out your go-to pieces really being in a rush and really don't know what to wear. At these very often times, I tend to grab the shorts. Luckily, I've started hoarding different kinds of shorts lately. There are the drop crotch shorts, skorts, fancier basketball shorts, the boy shorts (aka bermuda), and wide legged pant-hybrid ones like the ones I'm wearing (aka culottes). They remain true to my boyish tendencies (by style or mannerism- I am not the most poised lady) while still allowing me to be a woman via choice of tops and accessories.

Sunnies Studios / Top: James Isara Geometric Bralette (c/o ASTO) / Skirt: Vintage / Sandals: ASOS

Here's the outfit that I wore to the super cute Sunnies Studios' 1st birthday bash

I've been told that I tend to go a little goth at times, I suppose it's only natural for someone who wears a lot of black and with several variations in styling! I don't mind at all, I actually embrace it- I've accidentally referenced the 90s flick The Craft! (Thanks for the reference, Martine!) 

Many thanks to Asto Group for sending me a couple of cute tops like this. They know exactly what I like. They too are celebrating their 1st birthday/anniversary this coming November, and have contacted me for a little collab! Here's a fun coupon code for 20% off any purchase on their website: ASTOxRB
