I’ve been meaning to do an industrial-themed shoot for quite some time so Alvin, my long-time friend Ching May, and I headed down to an industrial building to shoot. We went down on a weekend so the place would be empty and no cheeky old men would be staring at us. When Alvin and I were exploring the place for possible shoot locations, we thought it would be amazing to shoot in the cargo lift. Plus, Alvin’s been learning tons of lighting tricks from his internship – that means nicer indoor shoots! Speaking of Alvin, he’s covering the behind-the-scenes for Singapore’s first ever Redbull Flugtag @ Sentosa tomorrow as part of his internship with Red Bull photographer, Mark Teo. Good on you juju!
As aforementioned, I invited my secondary schoolmate Ching down to shoot with me. Ching and I met during an overseas school trip to Shanghai when we were 14, and we’ve been good friends since. We bonded over our obsession with cleanliness: we could not tolerate our respective roommates’ untidiness back then, and we both found cleaning-comfort in each other’s company. It was a match made in cleaning heaven! We both also share a love for Jeffrey Campbell shoes, which we are wearing in this post. So yes, do expect us to wait by our laptops furiously clicking away during Black Friday* on Solestruck.com buying more Jeffrey Campbell shoes. (*Black Friday is the day when Solestruck.com’s shoes go on a crazzzzzy sale)
In this post, I’m wearing a Topshop top, Topshop leather leggings, Jeffrey Campbell shoes, necklace from Japan, ring from Jipaban.com. Ching is wearing a Topshop bralet, Dolce & Gabbana pants, Jeffrey Campbell shoes, Marc by Marc Jacobs Bracelet, Patek Philippe watch, Escada belt.
By the way, I’m really happy with my byzantium-coloured top I got from Topshop. I call it my, “business in the front, party in the back” top. Scroll down and you’ll see why.
