F/W13 PICKS

(1. Carven Pink boiled wool belted coat // 2. Urbanears Plattan White // 3. 3.1 Phillip Lim Small Ryder Satchel // 4. ChloƩ Studded Ankle Boots)

My current fall winter 2013 picks. Winter is not complete without these fundaments - a warm coat, a functional purse, a good pair of shoes, and good quality headphones. 

1. If you don't already know, i'm a huge Carven fanatic, so it is only natural that i'm in love with their F/W13 collection and this oversized, baby pink coat that will be a pick-me-up on those cold cold cold winter days - who wouldn't want to strut down the street with this bad-boy on?

2. When selecting your accessories, headphones included, the color should always matter. Your headphones can be a pop, or they can simply blend with your wardrobe. These Urbanears headphones in their "Plattan" collection, is jaw-dropping in its functionality and simple aesthetics. They are advertised to block out all outside noise, which, in my head, is perfect for scenic train rides (though not the best when you're walking around town because you wouldn't want to set yourself up to be the victim of car accidents).

3. A beautiful black leather bag with brass details like this can turn into a habit, and a reliant for the winter. Its elegance trumps any over-embellished purse, and the long shoulder strap that comes with it can be a life-saver, so be prepared to clutch onto this gorgeous purse for the whole of winter. 

4. I am loving the pastel version of the ChloƩ studded ankle boots, where the gold studs are blent into the color, creating a more subtle flower pattern. This clean color ties your whole look together, leaving you feeling and looking invincible.

Happy Monday!

SPOT ME IN THE SHADOWS

(Top Muji, Cardigan BYPAC, Skirt Uniqlo, Tights Topshop, Shoes Repetto)

It's considered pre-fall in Hong Kong right now, and it's honestly the best feeling when you step out without having to worry about humidity and its sticky residue being left on your skin. I realized it wasn't chilly enough just yet for this thick cardigan when I stepped out of my air-conditioned room, but luckily it was cool enough for me to (sort-of) hang it off my shoulders. I guess this is my body's way of telling me that i'm prepared for winter. 

Bring on sweater weather!

SIXTEEN


'15' was a year of realization; I hit a nail on what really inspired/inspires me, and even though this is a process that takes time and occasional eureka! moments, I can now say that i'm on good terms with myself and its really something much easier said than done.

It was also a year of friendship, angsty feelings, hiding in the background, but also trying and discovering new things independently. 

Today i'll bid farewell to the complicated year of '15', and welcome the whooping sixteen with anticipation and a new badge to my imaginary badge collection of years lived - and i'll strive through whatever comes my way. 

Here's to growing old!
