* STAY INDOORS *

TOP : made by me (diy). NECKLACE : penang night market. SKIRT : "Some vintage hand-me-down." HEADBAND : made by me (diy). SHOES : Fendi (vintage). KIMONO : made by me (diy). SUNGLASSES : mood look hk in granville circuit, hong kong.

After I watched Danisnotonfire's video on his experience with getting sunstroke, I was horrified! The aftermath of him being in the sun for hours sounded awful, all the nausea he endured sounded gross.

With Hong Kong's strong humidity and heat, heatstroke or sunstroke could happen to anyone easily. Going to the local wet market today to help my dad get stuff was a wake up call for me to cool off. That's why I came up with a solution for how my day would go. Staying Indoors! 

This fringed bandeau I have on was something I designed for the beach a long time ago, yet never ended up wearing it for some reason. Fun fact; it used to be a "church camp" shirt. :D


PS. I'm currently photographing some of my handmade lanyards on this ol' mannequin. Deciding to make an etsy shop, so I'll definitely post its link sometime soon so anyone can buy them!

Look Louvre


SHIRT : Vintage Tee. SKIRT : House of Holland. BAG : Rebecca Minkoff. SHOES : Tod's.

You know the part where mary kate and ashley tiredly walked through the museums from exhibition to exhibition in their movie, Passport to Paris? Well, I felt that way too walking through the Louvre.

Musee Du Louvre is a museum showcasing a ton of traditional art. It's split into 3 sections that have A LOT of stuff in. I swear, it took me and my sister Nat at least 3 hours just going through one and a half of the three wings. If you intend to go there, be sure to avoid weekends, bring snacks, and get there early if you want to see the Mona Lisa!! It's in the "Denon Wing," I think.

Another thing is, the museum is free for people ages 25 and under. So make sure to bring proof of age like an ID or passport so the guard can let you in.

Blank Canvas











DRESS: Style Stalker // SHOES: Hm // SUNGLASSES: Ray-ban

I've taken more simple routes than usual in most of my holiday outfits, and I think this look in Penang represented my mindset when I spent time away from most technologies during the month. I liked to think I was in a loose, clean, and fresh mind zone. However, I do admit I missed blogging a lot. Instagram was my only way to connect to the world during my break. Contrary to the simple route, over the past month, I've been attempting to deal with petty things that have been bothering me. Regarding friendship, work (fashion stuff), but generally, people. Sometimes it's best to become a blank canvas and start fresh.
