Mornings in Paris. Worry not, as i had way more  for my breakfast on our last day (not pictured: strawberry tarts, baguette, lattes and the lot). Bare legs are now a luxury I cannot afford, apparently not for a while as i hear temperatures back home are at a low as well. I'm counting the days until I get back to Hong Kong and can eat everything I've been craving for the past three months within a span of one day (of course). Bear with me and the overdue posts...exams are coming up and for me that means lots of time in the library and not enough time to shoot. Also, this skirt is fluffy as heck...wanna feel?

Paris Fluff

If you ever felt a compelling desire to see many photos of me drinking tea in situ of our Parisian Airbnb kitchen, congratulations. Otherwise you've probably seen the ensuing photos littered all over my instagram feed in a desperate attempt to rekindle the happenings of our Paris trip, which happened well over 5 weeks ago...in other words, i need to get my shit together. Or, you've seen similar backlit photos by any other personal style blogger (or have grown tired of seeing photos of me, cup in hand, or just photos of me in general). In any case, I'd like to make the point that living in Paris (especially in this apartment) does not suck...and that precisely is the reason why i will probably continue reposting this photo until you develop an allergic reaction, or decide that you are in desperate need of an Airbnb getaway of your own. In the latter case, find here a referral link where you can take a little bit o' mullah off your first booking. There are more photos to come! *winky face* *drinks tea*

The New Party Look

The last time i wore heels was prom, and even then they were off halfway through, much to the relief of my feet...and friends who had to be in photos with what resembled a tree in white lace. Hence when Selfridges asked me (subsequent to my earlier Wishlist post) to do a Holiday Party look I decided to go for something more natural and a lot more...black. As a person with a regular amount of social anxiety (it's about time we all admit to the relief of closing the bathroom door at a busy party) I tend to avoid unnecessarily loud prints and opt for an outfit consisting of pieces i can repeat to my heart's content...cue a leather jacket that fits like a glove, ideal pointy loafers and possibly the only strapless LBD that won't slide off me due to my lack of curvature.  A.K.A. pieces i can safely say will do me well even after holiday season is long gone. Also, Red lipstick is about as festive as it gets on my face (can't even begin to imagine removing any form of glitter off my eyelids after a 6th grade allergic reaction to stage makeup). Props to Selfridges for letting me play dress up...you have no idea how hard it was choosing these items! 

P.S. if you're thinking about your holiday look (heels or no), check our their selection of holiday-friendly dresses and shoes....they're also doing a 20% off promotion just in time for Christmas *coughs* so make sure you go do some damage.

Me x Pixie Market

I'm really excited to post these photos up because I spent a lot of time envisaging how I would photograph and edit them...lately i've been wanting to take my photos in a different direction aesthetically and I'm happy to say that I am almost there (where almost there is the best place to be). Picked a few cute pieces from the treasure trove that is Pixie Market...not really styling towards a coherent theme but rather choosing pieces that caught my eye down to the tiny details....be it the beading, zippers or bell sleeves. Most of these were taken on my Fujifilm x-pro 1 with the exceptional film pics (by who other than my Stephanie aka. voluntary sibling). I hope you like my new labor of love, let me know what you think in the comments or just holla at me if felt necessary.

outfit three: Pixie Market dress and leather jacket.
