  • I’m so glad and thankful that I’ve been given the opportunity to collaborate with photographer Bernice Wong. I’m so in love with her photos I could marry it – okay, maybe not, but seriously, her photos are so amazing they bring out the narcissist in you. I could not stop looking at myself – as self-obsessed as that sounds – when i saw the photos from our shoot. Trust me, if you did a shoot with her, you’d be looking at the photos every now and then too. Aside from her superb photography skills, Bernice has a great heart as well – she’s an aspiring documentary photojournalist, and she’s currently in Bangladesh for 6 weeks to shoot for an NGO. How about that? Great girl, even greater personality (:

    On to today’s outfit: I’m wearing my Jeffrey Campbell Litas, and a Galaxy skirt I got from Haji Lane. The skirt was one of my impulse buys – I did not consider the fact that I had nothing in my wardrobe that will be able to go with it, so it just sat there in my wardrobe for like, the past 4 months? Then I was introduced to online web boutique Mustard & Mint by Bernice and I immediately died. There were so many pieces that were – according to Cindy and Jemimah – so “me”. One of the pieces I just had to get was this Silk & Linen Top in Teased colour, which I paired with my galaxy skirt. (The girls at Mustard & Mint were so nice to sponsor me the top for the shoot. Thanks girls!) Like finally! My skirt can be put to use and I can stop feeling bad everytime I see it sitting there in my closet.

  • Fashion – A Very Blue Weekend

  • In my very first post on OneBlogTwoLives, I recommended local musician Charlie Lim’s music and I also briefly mentioned that I would be meeting him in a few months. Well the day finally came and I got to meet him last friday while emceeing for my school’s dinner and dance, where Charlie serenaded the crowd with his own composition “Pedestal”, and “Daughters” by John Mayer. Marcus, Sally, Jemimah, Jon (Marcus’ bandmate), and I were all swooning at the side of the stage as he was singing, in Jemimah’s words, “you guys look like you’re gonna throw your ovaries at him”.
    Our “groupie fanaticism” didn’t stop there – Charlie is going to be performing at the Esplanade Recital Studio on the 31st August, and you can get your tickets at sistic for $28 (inc. booking fee). I already got mine, so what are you waiting for!
    Here’s a couple of photos I snapped with Charlie and my friends. I wore a Blue Midi Dress from Missypixie for the occasion!

     

     

    Continuing this blue trend over the weekend, I wore my custom-made Baju (“clothes” in Malay) for Hari Raya celebrations. It’s my 4th Hari Raya with my boyfriend and his family, and every year, I design and choose the materials for my outfit, then send it for tailoring! This year, the family was all decked out in blue! I designed a chiffon royal-blue top with an inner corset. To glam the outfit up since the top is a little plain, I chose a blue-and-gold material for my skirt, of course, this decision would not have been made without the valuable input from Imran, his mom and his nanny! My friend, Salimah, was very kind and got me a pair of blue Swarovski earrings from Europe, which perfectly matched my Hari Raya outfit!
     
    Say hi to my boyfriend! Who’s making his first cameo on my blog hehe.

     

     He couldn’t get enough of all the Hari Raya goodies and kept opening every container. See my shocked expression.
    My shocked expression still plastered on my face as Imran continues stuffing himself with goodies. This went on for a good 10 minutes.
    All in all, it was an amazing (blue) weekend with family and friends. Hope you guys had an awesome weekend as well, and to all my Malay friends, Selamat Hari Raya, maaf zahir batin!

  • Fashion – Outfit for Life

  • If I could choose one outfit to wear for my entire life, I think this outfit would be it. I just have this inclination towards white and nude-coloured stuff. And if i don’t know what to wear for the day, i can always trust a 3/4 pants and a simple top.

    I got my cardigan from H&M in London, white top from Zara and 3/4 pants from Esprit (which my parents bought for me when i was 12 i think, yes i have not grown since then), shoes from Far East Plaza!

    Photos taken by my friend, Alvin Teo (jujuphotography@gmail.com).
