That Beach Was Being Nice

First of all, Happy Malaysia Day to all of us Malaysians. I clearly wasn’t dressed for a getaway or something, but ideas just came like running tap water. So, whatever because we do what we want. So I am headed to the beach, and damn that beach, so beautiful and sh*t. The tide was really low and we had a good stroll. Also the haze wasn’t that bad a thing, because it made the beach more mysteriously spooky than ever. That’s something you get only when you’re up early in the morning!

I’ve taken a huge liking towards oversized and flats (mainly sneakers and birks) nowadays. I’ve been talking so much lately about those, also these pairs of birks have been on my feet ever since then. It fits so perfectly to portray a much casual and boyish look, on top of its extra comfort. What could have been better than wearing what you love and feeling cozy in them? Transitioning into fall/winter, I have been searching for the classic and basic wardrobe items for all girls. And of course, to take some references and inspirations on how to style these basics. Coats, which come in all cuts and colors, are perfect for fall. It wraps up the two most important qualities I would want in a piece of item: oversized (checked), boyish (checked). And, that’s how I would roll the rest of 2014.

After hanging around visually on the internet around many international fashion designer brands, I suddenly had an itch to find out some local designers who are currently on the watch list. My search did not at all disappoint me. In fact, it brought a twinkle to my eyes and powered up my hopes further. Joe Chia, graduating from the Ruffles College, he has taken his stand among the Malaysian designers as well as in the European fashion industry. Joe Chia, to me, has an individual and minimalistic taste towards fashion, implementing mostly only black, white and grey shades to his works. Above are a few of his recent works I’ve taken from his Instagram. Not only he has a collection of amazing ready-to-wear clothing, his photo albums are just as awesome in BNW.

A Call For Sweater Weather

I like spacey outfits, and oversized are just oozing awesomeness. Stepping into August calls for a colder weather and that would mean some warm fabric wrapped around our skins. More than anything else, such as coats and jackets, I personally prefer a piece of slouchy sweater because of its ready-to-go quality. I mean, throw on an oversized sweater over a pair of denim jeans and slipped on some heels or even birks, and the outcome is always wonderful. Whether it calls for a lazy fashion, a boyfriend style or casual, they all work. Now I’d just have to hunt for a few pieces of these perfect oversized sweaters and wait for the season to come by while having a cup of hot cocoa.

Black and Destroyed

There has been a few downs quite recently, thus the heavy moods. Black is the usual color, but it looks more powerful in a black and white photo. It shouts and cries how I felt for the past days: dark. But, well, everything passes with time and I’m now cheered up and ready to pick up my pace again. (Because heavy metal kinda helps.)

The From Where I Stand

The ‘From Where I Stand’ Instagram posts. I’m not a frequent blogger, plus not having a tripod stand pisses me off. I mean, DSLR but I am all alone? Pergh, what’s the use of that expensive toy? So lately, I’ve been taking my #ootd(s) this way. Too many sloths living in me, right? Well after experiment with this angle (which is rather challenging so I am thinking if other professional bloggers actually have a third party taking photos of them in this angle and direction.), I like the last photo most. I guess there’s a color that pops out among all blacks and it kinda just stays in the favorite list. Also personally I really like the dress that contours my body shape (despite having to suck in my tummy). And that leopard tee. Awesome. I know.

Grey and White Matters

The weather has been uneasy these days. It outsmarts me all the time. The sun could be shining as bright as ever and the heat would be so unbearable, but with a quick turn, a gush of cold wind and droplets of rain pours all over from the sky. But I couldn’t care less, because the weekend combo is sometimes just a simple grey tee and white shorts! It’s a simple but extremely cozy tee from The Longhouse Clothing based in Kota Samarahan. There’s nothing I could say about the design and the material, because as simple as it is, I love it just that way. And by the way, as crazy as the weather has been, so is my life recently. But, no matter how crazy it gets, nothing beats pampering yourself with dressing up as you wish and being confident in your own skin. Life has to go on and it just gets better, right?

Oh, and also, support the local arts and talents!
