When it comes to clothes, fabrics do matter to me a lot. They can make or break. They tell your story and character. As for me, I’ve always been into the feminine side with style. I love drama & mystique and nothing spells craftsmanship, details, history and romance better than lace. I’m literally in-love.
The only thing constant in life is change. As we grow old we develop different interests, priorities and dreams. Sometimes even our likes change. Including our wardrobe! ( Wow, such a sensible intro to something that will only end up in the closet! Hahaha!) Seriously, I have lately become more classic and simple with my choices in the closet. From the colors, to the cut, to the fabric. It comes with age by the way so if you’re young, experiment and enjoy all possibilities! There’s no other time to do it but when you are young, wild, and free as they say. Now as I mature ( Cos I don’t wanna use the term “grow old” Haha! ), I’m trying to do away from too much shirred and balloon skirts ( not that I don’t want them anymore. Maybe this is just a phase?). I’m becoming a fan of pencil cut skirts and dresses that hug our figure subtly. We may not have that perfect hour glass shape but let’s try getting comfy with those cos mind you, these body-cons (or so how do you call body cons that are not too tight? ) are really classy and womanlike which leads me to my outfit today. It’s like a dressy dress made casual and laid back because of the print! I am actually reminded of summer and the tropics. So there you go, when you wanna tone down a classic and formal look into something relaxed and easy-going, go for prints! It can easily do the trick for you. The cut of my dress is something that you actually wear during cocktail nights in black but because of its tropical print, I can just actually wear it while strolling around or having tea at Chew Love. And yes! We will serve tea very soon. :)
See yah around!
I just love how wide leg pants can make you look taller. Why? Cos you can actually do the tricks underneath by donning the tallest heels or wedges that you have! Yes it is with these palazzo pants that you can add inches to your usual pants length. I seldom wear pants but in my basic wardrobe, this is definitely a must-have! I just love the volume and how whimsical the flow is when you walk. And of course mentioning the tall-factor that I’m getting from it! Wore it with a tank top to stay away from being corporate. Wanted to be as casual as possible.
How about you, how do you do the “make-you-look-taller” trick?

If you know me, I bet you know that you can hardly see me in jeans. In as much as it’s the staple clothing of all times, to me, almost always it makes me uneasy to be wrapped around by tight clothing. Thus I’m always with the easy breezy type of clothes. Then again, everyone needs a breather from the usual. And this has got to be one of those days….
And let me add, Isn’t this Mercibeaucoup canvas tote that is so Birkin-like adorable? You wouldn’t believe that I got this in really really great shape at a local thrift shop!! Yes I’m that lucky!

So I guess I’m back? Well there are just things that I can’t give up despite being bombarded with piles of to-do-list. So yes I’m seriously back on compiling my daily sartorial adventures cos if there’s one thing I love apart from designing my interiors at Chew Love, It’s gonna be dressing up, dressing up, and dressing up! :) And my back, is literally walking the talk in this OOTD post. Who says you need Summer to fly away with maxis that are so easy breezy?
This is not my usual staple clothing but I’m starting to love maxi dresses lately.It elongates. But this particular cut is quite tricky because it doesn’t have a defined waist. Can make you look bulky. But in my case, I don’t really mind. Sometimes you don’t need to be skinny to convince yourself that you look good. I dunno, but comfort is style and being secure in your own skin and body counts a lot.
Good day everyone!
