Running Late? 10 Minutes to Get Ready Routine

I’m planning to grow my blog more in the next year or so and it’s time to add another important aspect into my life: beauty. In some ways, I can imagine an eye-roll considering the negative connotations that come with beauty and with liking this, liking that; being like this, being like that. But I’ll leave this talk for another post ­čÖé   This particular post isn’t an overnight idea or one I brainstormed hard on. It just happened. This follows a true story, which come to think of it, I want this blog to embrace what’s natural to me too and what really happens in my lifestyle, as well as what I think. On Sunday, I was due to meet some friends however, I woke up pretty late and as such, there was no way I was going to make it in time. Yet I still wanted to look presentable and put-together. My skin wasn’t in its best condition either (spotty) but it happens. I remembered the previous week-end I had used the same …

#MFW S/S17 Proportional Dressing | Day 5

To the land of materials, Where artisans exist and play, allowing the rawness of feelings to transpire. Welcome to Milan Fashion Week!

Usually, I am hesitant about such large collections (even 50 looks is pushing it) but I found much joy in the prints above everything else in this collection.

#MFW S/S17 Stripe This Way, Stripe That Way | Day 3+4

To the land of materials, Where artisans exist and play, allowing the┬árawness of feelings to transpire. Welcome to Milan Fashion Week! Marco de Vincenzo An unknown name in my dictionary.

It was refreshing to see the fringing repeated on a diagonal which made all the difference. The use of contrast particularly lifted the colour palette and collection as a whole. There was also a miniature version of the fringing done in contrasting colours which was interesting and added a new ounce of texture that I had not encountered before. This designer is one to watch! Versace After expressing how she’s finally come into her own last season, Donatella Versace has been on a new high ever since.
