Stripe tee: A must have!

Stripe tee or breton tee has become a must-have staple in my wardrobe. I have been on a hunt for this basic number and over the years, I failed to find one that makes me want to bring it home. Until I spotted this at Zara, I went on an read the labels: Organic Cotton. I'm sold! I am pretty fussy about my basics. Maybe I could foresee myself wearing it for the rest of my life, so getting the right fit and quality is crucial. I was told by one of my colleagues that he sees me in white everyday. Yes, I do. In fact, most of my bedsheets are whited based; my sneakers are white; the walls in my room are white. I just couldn't resist wearing white. White, pale pink, navy blue, black, and nude are within my colour chart. As you can see, I am wearing some of my colours. Call me boring, but I am just not a big fan of colours. I love playing with simplicity at the best of my ability. But then again, you could spot me with some colours from time to time as an effort to do things differently. It's the thought that counts right. Speaking of effort, I wore this with a zip pleather skirt under this humidity. It may sound weather impaired but I want to put on some good amount toughness into this simple top. Clean, simple and tough. And btw, simple and plain are two different things. It is not the same difference. Alright, enough mumbling. Till next post...

 Outfit details: Dress from H&M, Jacket from NastyGal, Soire Heels from Jeffrey Campbells, Pearls from Lovisa. 

Dear all, I have been MIA for almost a week. I think. I have missed blogging and taking outfit photos. I miss how fun it was too shoot and today, I have finally find the time. I have just started work last week and it has kept me busy. Finally, I am given a chance to writer professionally. I am by no means a great writer, if you know what I mean. But, I am working on it.It feels a little off when I write sometimes. 

After working for 4 days, I actually get the chance to write. Yipee. It has yet to be published as it still need to undergo the editing process. Although I am not writing about fashion, this little space would do. The flexibility of blogging allows my creativity to flow, making my own content. I really appreciate it and now that whatever I planned out came out well, I am pretty content with myself. At this point. There is still room for improvement and I am glad for it. 

Anyway, I bought this dress for almost 4 months now and I have finally find a time to wear it for a shoot. Pairing it with a crop pleather jacket give this demure chiffon dress some edge. It give some room to show off some collarbone. Collarbone and bare backs are sexy. I went pretty minimal with the accessories and put on a pearl bracelet, which is extremely rare. I was taken aback by the mature vibe that pearl type accessories have till I realised that I was wrong about pearls all this years. It can actually make a simple outfit looks more polish. Or maybe, I am unoblivious that I am all grown up. #adultcrisis

 Alright guys, have a great week. Good night.

The truth about wavy hair.

Images from Indielog, Mr.Kate, Google Images, and Harpers Bazaar.

For as long as I can remember, textured wavy hair has been making headlines since the introduction of Erin Wasson, Gisele Bundchen and Daria Werbowy. Fashion blogger, Rumi Neely is famous for her ombre wavy tresses. The australians or whoever who lives by the beach are blessed with wavy tresses minus the salt spray.As effortless as it may seems, wavy or curly hair is one of the hardest to managed. At least that's what I've heard. It could be it is either too taxing to maintain because they are dealing with all these elements involved like humidity, wind and frizziness or they are clueless with wavy hair. Despite the love hate relationship, I for one loves wavy hair. I am positively envious to those who were born with wavy hair. Those delicious luscious curl. Thus, I really cannot comprehend those who religiously straighten their hair. All you need it a good curl enhancement products and the occasional hair curling action. I am missing my previous perm hair. And, I am looking forward to get myself a good Amika curling iron from Sephora.
