    First Love

    A while ago, I was catching up on Margaret Zhang’s recent work on her website when I stumbled upon something she wrote that resonated quite strongly with me. In this post, she writes, “…music taught me how to feel, and everything I touch creatively is driven by emotion – sometimes to an irrational degree.” I think it’s a statement that a lot of people can relate to. Music will always be my first love, and I spent many years learning to play the piano, singing, performing, and making music within the comfort of my bedroom walls. This later developed into an interest in dancing, which I do my best to nourish by attending open classes every now and then.

    Music has the power to influence my mood in so many ways, it’s insane. These days, I’ve been staying connected to my favourite crooners and urban poets with a pair of Regent headphones from Swedish brand Sudio. They’ve kindly sent over a pair*, and I haven’t parted with them since. I love how classic they look – the white leather material complements the gold hardware so elegantly, and the marble caps add a subtle statement to the design. This is great because it means they’re versatile and I can match them with all of my outfits (the most important thing, lol!). I also appreciate that they’re Bluetooth headphones because my previous pair used to get tangled up in stuff a lot (yes, I can be quite clumsy). After using them for about 3 weeks, I notice that they last a really long time, and that’s coming from someone who tends to forget to charge anything that isn’t her phone or laptop. The website states that it’s built to last 24+ hours – I haven’t exactly put that to the test but I do notice that the battery life really does last quite a while!

    In this look I styled them with my favourite denim jacket that I found at a flea market in Singapore. I love the acid wash finish and the statement graphic at the back – a nod to the Young Romance comic books that ran in the 50s and 60s. I also have on a pair of hand-crafted earrings from madebyhazymomo, and Urban Decay’s Vice Lipstick in Disturbed on my lips.

    I got up yesterday morning, checked the weather forecast for the day and decided that it was temperature-appropriate for a light trench coat. I’ve been saving this for a while now and since the days are getting a bit cooler, I was looking forward to finally wearing it out. I wanted to keep the look casual so I threw the trench over a white tee and some basic blue jeans, cuffing the hems as per usual. I added a bit of colour with some red lipstick and a lovely green handbag by Kate Spade that once belonged to my mom, but found a new home in my closet. This trench is perfect for lazy day looks like this – I can imagine myself throwing it over various combinations of basic closet staples when I don’t really feel like dressing up, but still want to look more put together. I’ll have the rest of December to style different looks around this trench coat but for now, it’s back to Winter dressing for me because in a few hours, I’ll be hopping on a plane to the Land of the Morning Calm, more commonly known as South Korea!

    Falling for Florals

    I was never particularly fond of floral prints until the kimono trend hit last year and even then, it took me a (really long) while before I caved in to curiosity. I suppose that the trick to making it work was finding the right kind of floral print – I found that I was more drawn to larger, bolder prints over sweet, dainty florals (surprise, surprise!). I paired this gem of a kimono cardigan with black denim, and threw on some black leather and my favourite round shades. So much love in an outfit!
