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
