Video: OOTD – How I Style the Crop Top

Posted on 26-08-2013 | Tags: , ,

So this week I won’t be uploading a makeup video (unless I miraculously manage to finish editing the ones I’m working on at the moment), but I did create my first outfit of the day video!

I wish I could have taken off the jacket to really show that crop top, but tbh it was really embarrassing trying to film out in the public street where people keep walking past LOL. Oh well, things to note for next time. I don’t know if I’ll be doing many more of these outfit videos, I prefer filming makeup ones but we’ll have to see how it goes.

Sorry it’s such a short video this week! Don’t worry, the next two weeks of videos will be more substantial ;D

16°C: First Day of Semester 2

Posted on 24-07-2012 | Tags: , ,

So, to -cough- celebrate the start of Semester 2 of University, I bring you a long overdue photo fashion post! But, only one picture came out okay.

Outerwear: Random asymmetric grey cardigan / Top: Starry sheer top (with thermal top underneath), Cotton On, $35 $10 / Shorts: Pale pink ‘San Francisco’ shorts, Levi’s, $15 (on sale) / Black Tights / Shoes: Low-tops with odd shoelaces (DIY), Converse / Floral laces from Art Box / Chunky Necklace from Colette

Quick post, I’m exhausted LOL.

Overall, it was probably too cold to be wearing this later in the day. When it was sunny/when I was indoors, it was okay. But…

16 degrees celcius: Sheer top + Thermal top + Shorts + Tights = unsure.

22°C: Needles & Trench Coats

Posted on 08-05-2012 | Tags:

Finally got some pictures to post Today’s outfit:

What I’m Wearing:
– Mustard Sweater
– Vermillion Woollen Shorts, Jayjays, $10
– Black Belt, Thrifted, $4
– Pendant, Pandora, gift
– Zigzag Patterned Stockings, Target
– Lace-up Ankle Boots, Famous Footwear, $10
– Floral button up
– Beige Trench Coat

After feeling a little sick yesterday, and awaking from the nightmare aforementioned, I wanted to wear something bright and perhaps more dressy than usual. So I went with these vermillion shorts. I really like the woollen fabric for Autumn months, and for these warmer-cold days they work very well with stockings.

I chose to wear a dark blue collared button-down underneath to provide some contrast in colour. I actually forgot to wear many accessories today! But I think it’s alright, because the outfit itself is quite loud and adding heavy accessories such as jewellery would be overpowering.

And, on another note, I recently re-dyed my hair, in preparation of some DIY ombre tips:

Tiring day at uni, I had very little sleep. I didn’t end up doing much work anyway though. I just got a flu shot. HURTS. Didn’t relax my muscles enough.

Well, anyway I’m tired so to conclude; at some points of the day, I felt a bit too warm (like, late afternoon?) but overall:

22 degrees celcius: Trench Coat + Shorts/Tights + Light Sweater = success.

16°C: Dressing for rainy days

Posted on 03-05-2012 | Tags:

I finally got an outfit picture. I’ve been pretty reluctant about taking out the camera recently because it’s been RAINING! Plus, it feels SO awks taking photos randomly in uni, LOL. But Bryan took a quick shot for me, only one wasn’t blurry:

What I’m Wearing:
– Caramel coat from some asian brand, gift from my Aunty
– Black knit dress, Valleygirl, $10
– Thermalish top (not visible), Abercrombie & Fitch, gift
– Leopard print textured belt, Katies, $5
– Tights with Zipper, Sportsgirl, gift from Bryan’s mum
–  Patent faux leather lace-up boots, Famous Footwear, $10
– Patterned scarf, origins unknown LOL.  I think my aunty got it from overseas?
–  And of course, my backpack from previous posts.

This outfit began looking very plain.  I wanted to wear the coat, so I built it around that.  I put on the knit dress and then I tried on a couple of scarves.  I ended up with this one because it has a pretty, intricate pattern which is reminiscent of persian rugs, haha.  It contrasts with the plain black dress and solid coloured coat making the outfit more interesting.  The patterned belt also dresses it up a bit more, and gives shape to the dress.

Since I only got one picture, I camwhored a little on my macbook so you can take a closer look at the patterned scarf:

I like how it has earthy colours, and also those teal accents which pop a little with the browns and reds.

So basically, the weather report told me it would be freaking cold today, LOL.  I wanted to wear my various coats since I used to have so few chances to wear them, what with school uniform instead.  Plus, I used to be a lot more conservative with my outfits, I love experimenting now though

Two things that I had to factor into the outfit was warmth, and waterproof shoes.  Imo, boots are the way to go in the rain because they are able to keep your feet dry, and they allow you to wear socks for warmth!

Underneath the knit dress I have an extremely warm (almost thermal?) top from Abercrombie & Fitch on.  And of course, for the rain & for warmth, a hooded coat just made sense.

I didn’t feel cold, nor too warm at any point in the day, so…

16 degrees celcius:  Coat + Patterned Scarf = success.

27 Degrees?

AHHHHhhmg what is WRONG with my site at the moment?! For the past hour and a half I have been trying to upload pictures, to no prevail. ;-;


So. I didn’t mention in the last post that I had some kind of allergy, causing my right eyelid to sort of swell up.
This has caused me great frustration because people either think I’m like, red from drunkenness or looking at them weirdly.
Luckily for me, my fringe sweeps to the right so I can cover it up a bit hehe

ANYWAY. Needless to say there have been few photo’s taken this week. LOL today my outfit was pretty weird anyway. I’ve been trying to pull off knit-on-knit. Don’t ask me why. I don’t even know. One morning I just woke up and realised I had bought so many knit items that to NOT wear knit-on-knit would leave me with few options.

BUT I decided to finally upload the photos taken at Jasmine’s house, so I don’t feel quite so bad about dropping my photo blog promise quite yet.

However, I forgot the weather for the day (how unprofessional of me) so. Yeah By borrowing a few of Jasmine’s clothes, I came up with a Summery-style outfit, below. The aim of our get-together was to stud some denim, which she’ll probably feature on her blog. Anyway, various picture time
