photos by Lauren Engel.

I'm so behind on posts, these photos were taken an age ago by the talented Lauren and here are a few of my favorites. Got a few exciting posts lined up but am too emotionally unstable (blame in on a belated viewing of a certain game of thrones episode) to write anything else so i'm just going to eat all the kit kats i bought in tokyo and draw stuff bye.

MAXIMALIST

wearing: top, skirt, and flats from Choies, boots from asos (similar here), wang clutch, karma circle necklace from asos (here). Photos by Jessica for Fragments

Lesson learnt: when one is melting in a wool skirt, holding a pair of boots in one hand and a clutch in another and having walked up to Sheung Wan from Central with a roxy gym bag full of shoot clothes (#brogprobrems), even a $50 lemonade seems justified (at least whilst you're drinking it). And wearing a skirt that looks like a furry magnified mermaids tail is a bonus. A place i'd honestly rather be right now instead of here, sitting in the library attempting to write as many understandable sentences at a time whilst my friends ask siri inappropriate questions. But it makes everything better considering i'll be in Tokyo this saturday (all my sashimi dreams will finally be worth it).

CHECK IT

wearing: old button up, zara skort, MarketHQ wire knit (around waist), boots from asos (similar here), wang clutch. Photos by Jessica for Fragments

Everyone and their mom has this skort, but that isn't (really) stopping me from wearing it every other day- notice my attempt to rejuvenate it with the 'sweater-tied-around-the-waist-which-doesn't-really-do-much". Other than occasionally slide down my hips and having me re-tie the double knot, but sometimes people do strange things too add oomph to an outfit (note jacket on shoulders...guilty). Even though we've been cursed with horrible (wet, humid, cold and then sometimes not) weather, I'm counting down the days until i hop on a plane for tokyo. T-minus 5 days to go!

DO THE DOT

wearing: dress (old) c/o Beginning Boutique (similar here and here), beanie (back in stock!) from asos, boots from asos (similar here), wang clutch. Photos by Jessica for Fragments. Warning, all hashtags below are used ironically (or at least attempted)

I was shot by the talented Jessica (some may know her as sparrowly on instagram) for Fragments magazine, and the girl is so good with a camera that you can barely tell i'm melting- I can slightly recall a reminder to never wear a beanie in 30°+ weather again, despite the temptation (damn you lazy oaf). We were blessed with the best light for these pictures, and this dress is an old favorite i rarely get to wear so i thought it'd be a great excuse to bust it out of its year-long hibernation. Also, mental note that risking getting hit by taxis is totally worth shooting in the middle of the road, which i should attempt to do more often (cautiously, whilst stammering "tell me if there's a car coming" and "is there a car behind me?") And my hair is currently in that awkward not-short-but-not-long stage where i attempt to look as symmetrical as possible (or, in this case stuff it into my hat). I swear, with hair this length one length always curls in and one always curls out, making me appear windswept in a flustering and not very photo-worthy way. hashtag girl problems. hashtag no filter. 

oh and if you'd like to see me (pretend to...of course) be asleep whilst someone does my makeup and see some hashtag spoilers for the rest of the outfits check out this behind the scenes video, also shot by Jessica. hashtag cringey thumbnail. ok i'll stop now.

GOOD VIBES


I'm wearing: top from Romwe, pants c/o Market HQ, necklace from Yan, backpack c/o Grafea. Photos by me and Bryant

Last Friday i had dinner with Bry to celebrate a very belated 17th birthday. In between demolishing our  ahem 4 plates of food plus 2 desserts each (just to put aside comments as we did not share a salad between us as that would give us absolutely no time to talk), we talked about everything from personal weather-perspiration ratios (the guy doesn't sweat) to the scarcity of polaroid-worthy red brick walls in Hong Kong. Oh, and i really need to wear more color as i can slowly see my closet turning into an all-too organized (yes i said it) mess (hah) of blues, whites and blacks. 

Oh, and as we leave the restaurant Bryant says to me, "every time i see you you're wearing your converse." I really need to start wearing footwear sans-laces asap because i'm starting to develop a sneaker problem. 

Happy Monday everyone!

WOLFPACK

 wearing: muscle tee (worn backwards) c/o Orion Theory, shorts c/o Lovelysally, cardigan c/o American Apparel

In a hamsa-hand-believing, swimsuit-shorts-over-tights-wearing martian way, but not really. This is what happens when the weather outside gets so sticky and gross (are tights even an idea) that i'm reduced to wearing swimsuit bottoms over tights and muscle tees backwards (plus or minus winter-appropriate knitwear). Basically a very un-realistic, weather confused (to say the least) outfit, but having a butt clad with wolves feels kind of cool.

DUSK TO DAWN



wearing: top from Sheinside, shorts from zara (old), blazer from NastyGal, boots from Choies, bag handed down from my mum. Photos by me, steph and agnes. 

jpeg diarrhea from yesterday night; think boba tea, korean bbq and last minute arcade meandering. And realizations that girl talk whilst overdosing on kimchi and korean spinach are perfect cures for any almost-holiday funks and post-LNAT practice test anxiety. I've been in the worst mood for the latter half of this week and this was the perfect antidote, regardless of the food baby (and today's food coma) and the beautiful BBQ smell that linger in your hair clothes and everything. Right now i'm just counting down the days until the holiday starts, whilst savoring the last weeks of my penultimate year of being a highschooler (still getting over the fact that the year went straight from january to june). On a side note, i've done a lot of shoots these two weeks so stay tuned for those!
