• Fashion – Industrial Shoot

  • 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.

  • Fashion – Pre-Swimming Outfit

  • It’s one more month to my examinations!!! To de-stress, I decided to head for a swim. I’ve always enjoyed swimming, mainly because my family’s really into water-sports: my parents made my brother and I take lifeguard courses, brought us for snorkeling vacations, and signed us up for an intensive scuba-diving 5D4N course to secure scuba-diving licences. I must admit, the courses weren’t easy to pass at all, it took a toll on us physically and emotionally. But all our efforts paid off, and Imran can safely be assured that he doesn’t have to go through the whole “if the ship sinks, who would you save, your mother or girlfriend” saga. Oh! And the best thing about swimming is, you don’t sweat or feel sticky after, though the initial going-into-the-water sucks because the water can get so cold and it takes me forever to psychologically convince myself that it’s really okay to submerge myself underwater.
    So, ever the opportunist, I managed to get my brother to help me take a few shots – before we dived into the water – of an outfit I’ve been meaning to wear out to a beach/ resort setting. I love this outfit I put together because it’s so “chill”, girly, and fun all at the same time. I feel extremely active in it! I’m wearing a denim top from Topshop, inner white tank from River Island, floral shorts from River Island.
    If you have upcoming examinations or assignments due, all the best and hang in there! <3

    Now on to today’s post.
    When the weather is chilly and rainy, my go-to choice of outerwear would be my Parka. It’s so big I feel extremely snuggly whenever I’m wearing it. In this post, I’m pairing my Zara Parka with a Zara white tee, a Pull & Bear shorts, Nine West ankle boots, and my brother’s New York Yankee Cap. My brother is a huge, and i mean huuuuuuge baseball fan!
    You know how you always hear stories of sisters “stealing” each other’s clothes without permission? Well, in my family, the sister (me) steals her brother’s clothes instead. Thankfully though, this doesn’t just happen in my household, Joyce wore her younger brother’s top to the Singapore Flyer Halloween Event! It’s such a blessing our younger brothers can come in handy in the fashion department, especially since both of us don’t have sisters to “steal” clothes from.
    Unfortunately, my cap-stealing stint was discovered when Alvin posted one of the pictures below on his Jujuphotography Facebook page. My brother saw the picture and commented, “is that my cap?!?!”.
    Oops? 😀
