Happy stripes

With Olympus PEN F in my hand and Tities Saputra's pieces on my body, here goes yours truly, the petite explorer visiting Korean Traditional Village for the second time. I didn't manage to take many pictures on my first visit so I made sure I did take many this time around.

Well, since the weather was a little bit cold but good for me, I was able to go out in this stripe ensemble, my favorite set from Tities Saputra's latest Men's Collection, oh how I love local made!
The material is a little bit thick, it has texture and the printed patches are lovely, you know how I love pastels! And well, it was just perfect for the day. Not to mention that we were visiting Bukchon Hanok Village and I feel like the outfit kinda matches the village, yes?

Many still asked on how can I survive walking in high heels, and guess what? The answer is still the same, really guys, I am just use to it.
You know, I used to be a dancer and wear them heels for a long 7-8 hours just for the dance practice, I guess that's how it all started. Perhaps, it was also because of my height issue back then, so I was more determined to get use to it. Now, I feel more comfortable wearing high heels rather than flats.

Rain rain go away

It was raining the whole day that day but we still managed to visit Gyeongbokgung for pictures and because it was Goldwin's first time to Seoul. Andy and the girls went inside the palace first while Goldwin and I stayed outside wishing that the rain would stop anytime soon. Though luck, the rain didn't stop at all but at least it did quite down a little bit, so we decided to just sit at the small pavilion near the main gate while waiting for the kids to finish taking pictures inside.

Lucky enough, I packed this outfit and wore it that day because it was rather cold due to the constant rain. Instead of renting hanbok like Andy and the other girls, I prefer to just keep this outfit since it kinda matches the palace. Well, it was my third time to Seoul but I still didn't feel like renting hanbok and wearing it for pictures, or maybe it's just my age hahaha.

Paired up this vibrant ruffled sleeve top with an old A-line leather skirt of mine I scored years ago, I didn't think I would wear it again after such a long time, not to mention twice this year. It's just how important to keep basic pieces in your closet because who knows you'll need it again someday, or in a few years, perhaps.

Oversized shirt and everyday hair

Many people said that my hair is getting nicer lately and well, I kinda agree with that. The secret? It's the haircut.... and a few other things, just read until finish, hmm?

I used to have damaged hair to the point that I didn't need to cut my hair because it keeps breaking messily, even curling it wouldn't make my hair look as good. So, when I got my healthy hair back, I asked my favorite hairdresser, Andreas Zhu to handle my hair, to do whatever with it because I trust him, and voila.

First, I got a nice haircut, letting go all the dry and split ends! And then, he told me to get my root permed in order to give more volume to my flat roots, so be it. Lastly, I got my hair highlighted for more texture and dimension.
PS. About the curl, I actually just curl my hair like how I normally do it, it's really because of the haircut and the styling.

Boots - Wittner

Well, you know how much I love oversized T-shirts, it's so versatile you can style it with just everything. One of my favorite thing to do with it, is just to wear it with a pair of shorts and my favorite high heels on, roll the sleeves up and wear a cute sling bag to complete the look. When having holiday overseas, more experiment is a must; I sometimes wear the plain look with my eye candy shoes over plain socks, a pair of thigh high boots will do the trick too, how fun right?

Velvet affair

My first time coming to Sydney during Autumn and no lie, I love it better. No more worrying about flat, greasy hair and also oily face! More interesting backgrounds, good weather, lovely blue sky with oh so yummy looking clouds and the most important thing is good coffee :) Life's good indeed.

You know how much I love to wear matchy matchy outfit because it's just right. But don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't like to mix and match my outfit, it's just that I always have a thing for outfit set especially when it involves long trousers, I AM SOLD!
Anyway, do you know that Exhibit is now available at And Gentle Monster is now available at Optik Seis? Major HOORAY!
