Outfit

  It’s been ages since I last sat in a café to write a post.  I almost forgot how much I enjoyed blogging.  Why this long silence?  Well, I moved from Singapore to Tokyo in February 2018 to take up a job offer.  I decided to put full-time blogging and freelance on hold in order to gain more experience… Read More »

Fashion seems to come naturally to the people of Tokyo.  People dress up with an impressive level of sophistication – even simple outfits are carefully curated.  The big fashion brands from the likes of Issey Miyake, acne studios and Prada can be found in the hip shopping neighborhoods of Harajuku and Omotesando (though I wish… Read More »

The All-Season Winter Shoe

  If there is a good reason to wear winter shoes, it’s Minelli. Why wouldn’t you? They are quality pieces in trendy yet versatile designs. Here’s a small selection that are available in Minelli shops in Switzerland. I’ve been looking for a basic pair of moccasins, but I ended up with this model with mini… Read More »

Why You Should Dress-Up Too.

  Women in the cities in Asia seem to enjoy dressing up. They parade the streets on weekends with the latest it-bags – and not in your usual jeans, t-shirts and sneakers combination.  Girls nail the office wear too.  In Lausanne and even in the bigger city of Zurich, I would become self-conscious wearing simple… Read More »

  It’s tricky to find a pair of jeans that fit me off-the-shelf. Invariably I have to alter the length, or I don’t quite like the cut – ditto for chinos. A solution comes by the name of Selfnation, a Zurich and Berlin-based company which tailors jeans and chinos to your measurements. The founders want… Read More »

How To Become A Fashion Blogger ©Blaastyle

  I regularly receive messages asking how one can become a fashion blogger, and if there is a magic formula. I share some of my experiences here and hope they provide the answers you were looking for, and perhaps even motivate or inspire you. I started blogging at 13. I remember posting friends pictures or “cool stuff” on Skyrock (the cool platform then). Then I moved on to Blogspot, and narrowed my contents to focus on fashion. I shared what inspired me (images… Read More »

People’s Park Complex

  I shot this OOTD look at an offbeat location. It is the rooftop of People’s Park Complex, an iconic 60’s-style building in the heart of Chinatown. To access the rooftop, you take the elevator at entrance of the shopping mall to the 6th floor and then climb the stairs. As backdrop, you have either… Read More »

  For many of us, September kicks off a new work or school year. So, how about a fresh start with a new feel-good outfit? One that is simple, casual and summerish (winter is still not quite here yet, and as for tropical Singapore…). Funny to think that jumpsuits were originally designed for sky jumps… Read More »

  I joined a luxury timepiece distributor and retailer without having owned a “serious” watch to talk about.  I could only claim to have a good eye and taste for watches, and how I prefer masculine to feminine styles. The wait is over – I now have a new Baume & Mercier MyClassima piece.  It… Read More »
