PRE-FALL'14 - T by ALEXANDER WANG



(creds to Style.com)

If I would have to do sports to wear this collection, I would. 

Alexander Wang manages to lure me in every time with his attention to detail and the simple forms and structures of his designs. He put a spin on the average sports gear by making, for example, a two-toned bomber jacket, and an elongated one that takes the form of a coat. Amongst his designs there were also boxy cropped tops that contrasted with form fitting bottoms, and lots and lots of leather - one component that is always present in Wang's designs. 

The outfits were styled to perfection and looked, as always, understated, subtle and effortless, making it all the more breathtaking.

EXPLORATION GEAR

(Sweater Cotton On, Button-up Pull&Bear, Jeans Uniqlo, Shoes ASOS)
In relation to my last post (about interior spaces), this was what I wore on the day I 'explored' bits of the city, hence the title - "Exploration Gear" (I hope capitalizing formulates a sense of legitimacy). 

The big bulky black bag (alliteration!) is my camera bag, which I used as my 'bag-of-the-day' because I was obviously too lazy to throw on another purse, which I will dub as questionable but somewhat clever behavior. 

Now that the city is cold, I traded shorts for these ill-fitted jeans that I tried to save by ripping, slashing, and distressing; so now they're labeled "ill-fitted" and "close to destruction". I paired them with a layered sweater which was an example of practical decision-making, and my boots, which were not, but was what I gravitated towards because I love the sound of heels on pavement (is it just me?). 

I hope you guys are having a great start to the last, and best month of 2013!

A BLANK CANVAS

A renovated space is like a blank canvas ready to be painted on…

If you liked the simile, then you'll (hopefully) like the jpegs below - some taken by me on a local hunt for vintage shops and new concept stores, and some found on tumblr.

The way you style your room says just as much about you as the way you wear your clothes, which is why i've decided to make a post on interior spaces and how they can inspire your mood(s), which ultimately affects the way you carry yourself and the way you dress (so lets hope it turns out well). 

At the moment, I am very drawn to the meticulous throwing together of objects, which results in a tastefully messy room (in a planned way, if you know what I mean). I'll try to incorporate these bits and pieces into my renovated room as soon as I move back in, and I hope you guys (whoever's reading) can maybe start getting some ideas for the new year! 
Enjoy~

This is probably more of a post for me than a post for you, but nonetheless, I hope you liked this :)

Have a warm first day of December, cheers!
