Finding My Rhythm…

  It’s been a bit more than a month since I arrived in Singapore.  Some of you still wonder what I am doing over here.  In my thirst to discover new places, I always wanted to explore and learn more about business in this part of the world.   How has it been so far?… Read More »

Casual Leather

  I found another solution to actually feel and look good in the cold. It’s the Goldie London shearling jacket from ABOUT YOU online store. The piece is not only warm and comfy but also easy to style. For example, I went for a flower Pyjama top (yes, as a daywear) with no other layers.… Read More »

  I was so eager to wear this flashy pink Adidas bomber but just didn’t know how to style it.  But I know the piece would not work well other extravagant pieces.  So I simply put on a Lee tee, a pair of DIY H&M denim, Aldo boots and Diesel bag – all in black.  With this outfit,… Read More »

  Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself. – Oscar De La Renta Editorials or designers’ campaign aim to highlight the creativity of a new fashion, often by exaggerating some aspects of the design. They are not meant to be worn as shown or even to look beautiful,… Read More »
