The past 2 weeks have been difficult.
Here’s sharing one of my favourite outfits that I wore to #MBFWA in Sydney. I have a never ending love affair with playsuits and this gorgeous piece in powder blue was a love at first sight. How can you resist those scallop details! I dressed it up and toughened the look with a black leather jacket and patent ribbon bow flats.
It was just as well that my manicure I had done at J Nails right before I went to Sydney matched the playsuit perfectly. This is one of my favourite manicures done by far. It’s completely outgrown now but I still have them on cos’ I love the design too much!
Playsuit: Miss Selfridge (Orchard Gateway Branch)
Jacket: Topshop (Old)
Clutch: Alexander McQueen
Taking #OOTDs is obviously very tiring business. Sleep-posing, haha!
Happy weekend, lovelies!
I did not expect to return to Sydney so soon after my 2 day escapade in the beautiful city last year. What brought me over this time was the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, with an opportunity to go backstage for the Michael Lo Sordo show – how could I say no. I flew in a couple of days earlier before the show to enjoy the city. It was also really a chance for me to take a short break and to gain fresh perspectives and inspiration to fuel my role as Creative Director at Wardrobe Theory.
For those of you are wondering why Wardrobe Theory has been so quiet on the new arrivals front, we’ve been really busy designing and prepping for full collections of ‘Wardrobe Theory Originals’. Yes, we’re moving towards becoming a full-fledged label and I can’t tell you how excited I am! I’ve designed every single piece in the upcoming collections and this whole process is taking longer than it should as I’m super fussy about quality and cuts. I’m making sure that everything is perfect before we are ready to present the collections to you. For a ‘lil sneak peek, I’m wearing a pair of high-waisted tailored shorts from one of the coming collections in this series of pictures. 🙂
These pictures were taken at The Rocks – one of my favourite places to visit in Sydney. You can access the Sydney Harbour Bridge from here, head to the Museum of Contemporary Art, or walk around and enjoy the beautiful and quaint architecture of the buildings around this area. Definitely lots of photo op moments! The cafe on the top floor of the Museum of Contemporary Art is a must-visit when you’re here. The view of the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House is beyond amazing.

I can’t remember how this collaboration between me and my multi-talented friend, Xuann came about. I think this idea was conceived one hot afternoon when she was over at my place as we were feasting over some delicious ‘yong tau foo’. As we sipped our watermelon juices and chatted idly about hopes, dreams and what’s to come for 2015, something struck a chord and we decided there and then that we will work on a fun little project together in 2015. She, being a professional hair and makeup artist will doll me up. And being the multi-talent that she is, she’ll also go behind the lens and shoot me. Yesterday was our first collaboration and these are some of the images that we got. I had so much fun doing these pictures and it was such an easy partnership. It feels like it all fell into place and we connected with each other through the camera. I’m so excited and can’t wait for collaboration #2,3,4!
If you’re looking for a hair and make-up artist for your wedding, to doll you up for a shoot or event, please check out her FB page www.facebook.com/xunnyart and her new IG account @xunnyart.
Here’s to beautiful friendships and even more beautiful collaborations!
