This Fall

H&M would like you to keep it simple, and man up!





If you blogger-shopaholics out there hasn't already know, ASOS is having a massive mid-season sale. I bought some $20 and under stuff from there. Whee!

Which reminds me, I don't really see the need to actually go shopping in Malaysia when I go back for my summer holidays anymore. Ngah! I am so satisfied with my current wardrobe!


Zipper detail medium size satchel - 18 pounds?


Purple Aztec print raincoat - 15 pounds? to match my purple gumboots!


Printed Culottes - 8 pounds.

If you haven't already had the site googled up and opened in another tab, here you go.

Glamourous School Girl

Guess what?! I am sitting in the clubs room studying, catching up my notes on good old land law, then these two guys walked in, with their suits and guitars and stuff. And start singing songs! Woot!


So I am secretly recording whatever they are practising. Post it here later? ;)

Anyway, this is what I wore to uni yesterday. After browsing some street style blogs recently, I am bringing my short tulips skirt back into my wardrobe horizon. I am utterly happy to finally wear these Topshop socks as they should be worn, not hidden under some trousers.


what I wore: Dotti shoulder detailed top, Glassons tulip skirt, Topshop anglophile socks, Jeffrey Campbell patent brogues.

Some outfit are meant for rainy days...

... and if it takes a down the dump wet cold rainy day for me to wear this, I would say it is totally worth it.

Twenty Seven Names @ NZFW

Twenty Seven Names from Eva Leong on Vimeo.

Out of a few fashion shows in New Zealand Fashion Week this year, I would have to say Twenty Seven Name's is definitely my favourite. Inspired by school uniforms, the line were filled with crisp white dresses and shirts, flat shoes, white socks, plaits, buttons and collars. I am pretty sure I am not the only one who loves and secretly miss my school uniforms back in those days.

I wish I can write more but I should really be listening to my lecture now. So keep an eye on this old blog, I'll post some pictures later. ;)

Seven at Seven

Sometime this time every year, Student Life Canterbury would have a night out for a few students that had shown immense growth in their spiritual walk. They are the fat and simple ones. Like me. Faithful, Available and Teachable; plus Spirit filled life, initiative evangelism, methods and material, purity in relationships, leadership potential and enthusiasm = Committed Student Leaders!

There are some important things that we do:
1. Encourage each other in our walk with God through our past university year.
2. Cast visions on the scarce time we have left.
3. Challenge to commit and invest our time as a committed student leader.

Then there are some not-so-important things that we do, like:

1. Rejoice!


2. Get all dolled-up.


3. Eat yummy desert and drink awesome coffee.



4. Day dream...


5. Double takes and check out each other's outfit.


6. Have a manly pile-on.


7. Take some proper and decent-looking group photos.


8. Have a random shot photobooth with your bestie.




9. Ask really random gross-out questions.


10. And, smell each other.


and sometimes...not everyone smells that good. >:(


Personally speaking, I love it! I had such a great time, feeling all encouraged and ready to go. ;)

And since this is a style/life/journal blog. I hope you guys are curious about what I wore:


what I wore: mom's 90's velvet dress, Coach handbag, Clarks Mary Janes, vintage 70's crochet cape from Andrea's vintage sales.

Bargain Hunter

So it's New Zealand Fashion Week this week and I could't go this year, which sucks. But I am not going to sit around and sulk. I am celebrating fashion week in my own little shopaholic manner. After buying a pair of designer boyfried jeans from Nobody last weekend (which I can't wait to show you guys, half price!), I did not splurge (because it was less than $60) on a sequined tunic/dress from Stitch Ministry. Last one in store! But you can still get a size 10 or size 12 if you go here: Fashion Artiste.

Photo for some squeals!


And now I have THREE dresses to choose from for the ball coming up in October.

Shadowing Sunday: Diane Kruger

No, I am not much of a big fan of Diane Kruger. It's just because I am trying to make myself blog more consistently that I randomly came up with Shadowing Sunday, so there will at least be something up each week. And I was just looking at the whole boyfriend jeans trend because I had been in pain yearning for a decent pair of slouchy BFjeans from a decent brand - not like some random yuck ones. Then I found this on polyvore:

kate bosworth

Cool right? A simple outfit made out of mostly things that you probably already have in your closet, the loose sweater, basic gray tank, gladiators from 5 seasons get the point.

So I thought maybe I can find another outfit that is worth shadowing. :) Here's what I came up with:
Basic black jeans that you should already have for years, washed denim jacket and silk scarf from that charity store, striped tee that was in style 2 seasons ago, little printed tote/book bag from your high school years and a pair of tough looking studded boots.

But if you don't already have these items, you can get them at jacket). The tote is A.P.C bead bag and the rest can easily be found in any retail or even outlet stores near you. ;)

Leave me a comment and let me know what do you think. *wink*

Earthquake = 0; Eva = 1


Oh yes I did not get quashed by the 7.1 quake that happened a couple of weeks ago. The only reason I disappeared from the bloggosphere is just because I disappeared. I have had moments like these before, where my bloggi-land became a dry parched piece of desert. Not because I stop wearing or buying pretty clothes, just because I don't take pictures and write about them. And soon enough that creepy urge to want to show it to the world would catch up with me and I would resume constantly posting again.

So Christchurch city had been hit by a big quake in the early Spring, actully, on the first day of Spring itself. Hmm...aren't we trapped in the cold for so long that we need a big shake to celebrate the return of the sun?

And for me, big quake to celebrate my pair of Jeffrey Campbell patent brogues. Ever since I started reading blogs I marvelled at the shiny, pretty, stylist kicks that other bloggers wear. Trapped way down south than the down and under, I never thought I could get my funky polished nails around a pair of shoes I internet-lust over. Oh my I sound so sick. Ew.

But I did. And it was on a S-A-L-E. Like my collector* daddy would say: "Sa-layyy". Dad's undeniably a shopaholic, he gets so excited over sales and even made up his own pronunciation for it! Shopaholic, no? Except he calls himself a collector. Yea, right. I am a collector too. >:D

Anyhow, enjoy the photos. (I might be a bit rusty from not taking outfit shots for a long long time.)


Even the box makes my heart skip a beat. JEFFREY CAMPBELL!!!


Tadaa! - worn with leopard print tights for a little roar!


Mango new girl in town tee, thrifted rolled up denim shorts, leopard print tights.


It Is What It Is dress, Dotti gray long cardigan, Polka dots tights, Mango bucket bag.

When in doubt

For us southerners, winter is coming to an end. And what I hate the most about end of seasons is that trends seems to be so old and unexciting and most of us would stop caring about what we wear already. By the last month of the season we are convinced that there are no new on-season pieces or creative ensembles that we have not seen. Since I am new to this whole one-year-four-season thingy, I find myself surviving end of seasons like a fashion victim. Or I would just give up and go back to the sweater and jeans combo.

Well, what I did was to search up the street style shots from winter in the northern hemisphere for inspiration. Here's a little something I came up with:-

One. When in doubt, wear the fool proof classic big black coat.


Two. Crazy tights in winter = refreshing!


Three. Yes we know but we forget sometimes, to layer-up!


Four. In case you skipped washing your hair in the cold weather, wear a hat. ;) Nobody needs to know it is just a fashionable cover-up.


Five. This will last you till Spring, maybe even early summer, considering how crappy New Zealand's weather had been. - The nude trench had been in trend since last spring and still going strong!


All the best in your battle against end of season dullness! hugs*

Winter Woes

Winter is getting a little more than frustrating. Gloomy days and ever-so-wet footpaths are not my thing. For some reasons, I have been stocking up dresses for spring. It should (technically) be weeks away from now. But looking at the way things are going so far, Spring break is not going to be much of a Spring break for me.

After spilling my first semester off wandering in blogs and online stores, my inner suppressed geek is eating me up with guilt. So I stocked up my uni locker with food and I am ready to sit in the library, drink energy drinks, chewing almonds and swallow my law textbooks and casebooks, and hopefully wrap my mind around some crucial economics theory.

But before I kill all the remaining readership (after neglecting the good old blog so much recently), I did promised a few girl friends to organise yet another vintage hunt around the beautiful city of Christchurch! So that is definitely something to look out for. ;)


What I wore: Forever21 utility parka, P.Princess lace top, Foldover button shorts, navy tights, vintage buckle shoes.




Oh and I bought these Neff x Skull Candy earmuffs-headphone. They keep me warm and mitigates the winter damages when they are not clamping my head too hard.

On the Panel (again)

Yay! I love being on the panel for talks and stuff. The last one I was invited on was for our club's weekly event about relationships and tomorrow we will be talking about friendship. It is really cool how we still talk about things like this when we are in uni and can afford the luxury of time. Conversations like these will be so hard to come by once we start working and have heaps of other stuff piled up in our real-working-adult-world plate, no?

Not that I have that luxury of time that I speak of. Seeing how I have neglected this blog and left it neglected for quite some time. Rest assured that I still wear cool clothes, match them, wash them, remix them. But without the time to actually record my what-I-wores, I can only do this, for now.

Magazine cut outs! I think this is actually one of the best runway to real way ensemble that I have seen recently so sharing = caring.

Take care my darling readers, I will be back soon. I hope. :(

Up the hills

A few weeks ago three university students decided that they should hang out and have some bubble it. It was raining lightly. With sugar pumping in their blood and way too much fun at a conference before that, they made their way up the hills for a spontaneous photo session. Rain + cold +bubble tea = awesome photos and a cold.

Here are some that survived the editing process.

at which Keren thought about life's big questions...

at which Eva did an Asian squart. Not so glam.

at which we saw a serendipity epic shot! which we roam around for more sugary things to keep the high going. which EJ wonders where did Eva come from...????!!!!

At which everyone discovers that Eva survived the train too!!! WOOT! HALLELUJAH!

at which Keren attempted the Jetstar pose...

At which a train was coming and Keren made the dash of her life...and Eva was.... *cough cough* *sobs sobs*

at which we encountered some serious sunburst.

what I wore: Dotti leopard print cardi, Mango T-shirt, Floral Skirt, Dotti Swing Coat, Scarf, Vintage laced-up boots
