Suddenly remembered this green blazer I purchased back in L.A, and felt inspired to preplan my summer wardrobe around it. Looking back, I may slightly regret not purchasing the matching trousers.

l.a story

1. I love, love, love menswear inspired outfits. A T by AW tee that cuts at all the right places, tucked in in the front, is super cool. D'Orsay flats elongates the body, and a white pair gives the old grandpa feel.

2. I'm personally not a huge fan of exposing too much skin, so this blazer (unrolled sleeves, please) paired with well-fitted denim shorts and red sandals is kind of perfect for patio nights. Buttoned up with only a lacy black bra, or unbuttoned with a black silk camisole under. This particular pairing reminds me of Christmas- not a bad thing.

3. Pattern on pattern is one of my favourite ways to wear colour. I'd wear the blazer with French-rolled sleeves, or nonchalantly slung over shoulders like a cape. Also, metallic, chunky heels are kind of essential for summer. NARS Heat Wave lip stick, men's watch, and delicate gold earrings optional.

My favourite kind of interior design: big windows with lots of light, monochromatic colour themes with pops of colour from plants and flowers, and relatively oversized framed photographs.

Glimpses of my own apartment:

Crystal Head, coffee table books, an empty Tiffany's bag (because Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favourite movie)

My all time favourite bag: 2011 anthracite City with regular silver hardware, chair from Urban Barn, christmas lights parameterizing my bedroom, rug from Ikea

I have a thing for collecting glass Evian bottles. The left one is from the Christian Lacriox collab, and the right one is this year's Elie Saab collaboration.


If Spring Existed

As it is one day from April, and as it snowed yesterday (WTF?!), I have no choice but to spend my desperate days on Polyvore. The loose white fabrics in my closet are begging to come out.

If Canada has Spring



I contemplated not using these photos I took using a self-timer, but the amount of effort I spent on making the stupid camera focus was way too much for me to throw the photos out.

I've been volunteering for World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto this week, and today was the last day for the shows. I must say it's a bittersweet moment. Definitely looking forward for the 2015 Spring one!

90% of the photos ended up looking like this..

Scarf bought in China, Blouse by Vince, Pants by Rag & Bone, watch by Cartier

one millions things to be envious of Parisians: hair

 Being a first time straight bang-wearer (not counting my random burst of spontaneity in the washroom during primary school), I can now empathize with all the girls (and gents) out there who also have high maintenance hair. My hair is currently blown out pin straight, but it occurred to me earlier I can now attempt the effortless Parisian french bang. Lou, Charlotte, Ines, please teach me your ways.

With finance being my major and fashion being my interest, I was naturally interested upon reading the title of this WSJ article. I fell in love with the trippy patterns and textures shown at Marco de Vincenzo F/W 14. With LVMH's investment of 45% ownership in the design house, I anticipate great things from de Vincenzo in the upcoming seasons. It was quite difficult picking photos to post as I loved each and every outfit that came down. Daring, classic and hypnotic are what the designer describes the woman who wears his clothes- entirely fitting words if you ask me.
