Embroidery Love

Currently in love with everything embroidery at the moment. I saw this dress in Zara while I was window shopping, yes JUST window shopping, and it was staring right back at me. I couldn't help it, I knew I had to bring this baby home and of course, I did. It was a beautiful moment and there were no regrets at all! (Maybe my husband's wallet cried a little)

The details are so spot on and I love how the black base of the dress brings out the rich colours of the embroidery even more. 

I was so excited to wear this dress out that I wore it out for dinner the same day I bought it. Because the dress was already so loud, I paired it with a statement bag and a simple pair of sandal heels. And voila! 


What I Wore: Embroidery Dress- Zara, Heels - Zara, Bag - Chanel Boy

Stripes & Twist

What I Wore : Leather Jacket - Zara, Top- Melbourne Apparel Co, Shorts - Zara, Shoes - Dotti, Bag - LV Twist

Two things that I'm currently loving in my wardrobe right now - anything stripes and this LV twist bag in red! I've been eyeing on this bag since FOREVER. So happy it's in my hands now. Yay! Apparently it was the last one in Japan and I just had to get it. 

I also recently found this local Melbourne brand called M.A.C - Melbourne Apparel Co which sells the BEST basics at affordable prices. Best thing is, it's locally made! I was not sponsored by them, I just happened to stumbled upon them after lunch in Abbotsford. If you're in Melbourne, definitely check the shop out:

Summer Days


So glad to be back in Melbourne where it's warmer after being in the cold for a month

Silver hair, boat hat and a breezy playsuit. That's all I need in the summer!


I have so many travel photos to share but editing and grouping them to share here is no easy task. But I will try my best to post them up as quickly as possible. Stay tuned!


Grey Minimalist in New York

Grey Minimalist in New York
You know when you first arrive in New York City, you would expect it to be like a scene from Sex and the City. I've watched the show countless times and I was always envious of how Carrie can rock a pair of Manolos down 5th Ave in her very chic ensemble. So I imagined that it'd be like that. LIES. ALL LIES. Unless you have a driver or you drive everywhere you go, strolling in heels was impossible in New York City. For me, at least. We had to take the subway, walk up and down 4 flights of stairs (very steep ones) to get to our lofts, run to catch the subway train and basically walk a lot on our feet. I brought my Jimmy Choos with me but never once worn them when I was in NYC. It was comfortable Nikes for me most of the time. 

Stripes in Amsterdam

There are so many things to do in Amsterdam but my favourite would be just strolling down the streets of Amsterdam. You get to see so many things; the local cafes, the fashionable people on their chic bicycles, school kids riding bicycles with their friends, pretty doorsteps, you name it, they have it.

Another thing I realised while strolling were the traffic light poles. They were all striped in black and white and go so cohesively with the zebra crossing. I also think I noticed them a lot cause I was hanging by the poles a lot before crossing the road. See in Amsterdam, as lovely as it is, the cyclists don't follow the pedestrian traffic light that much. I swear every time the light turns green, I looked to the right and then left, TWICE, and still a cyclist will zoom past me. Please bear in mind that the amount of bicycles in Amsterdam is slightly more than the population there.


What I Wore: Trench - Primark, Top - Topshop, Wide Legged Jeans - Topshop, Boots - Zara, Sling Bag - Prada, Sunglasses - Dior.

The Pink Lake

The Pink Lake
In Melbourne city, we are fortunate enough to have our very own man made 'pink' lake at the Westgate Park. What makes it pink is the high salt content in the lake and the warm weather condition. Otherwise, it will just be blue.
