ON HOLD


A quite special post this time as I'm sharing my most favourite spot in Singapore, Tiong Bahru. Love the ambiance, the people, the coffee, the truffle fries, and don't even get me started on all those bookstores. There's just so many unique things about Tiong Bahru that's definitely hard not to love.

Can't believe November is here. And I know I said this literally in every post close to December, but god damn did time flies fast. Couldn't even comprehend how excited I am right now for Christmas and reuniting with loved ones (read=my dog). 

Dressing up as if I just milk the cow in my long lost family's farm. But really, this flare jeans is made to  d a n c e. Not much of a denim person yet I'm always up for one or two nice pairs. Still feeling so damn lucky to find this last piece from Stradivarius.

And as you can see, I kinda went all out comes to holiday season, wearing red and everything, even since the previous post. But then again, I am one of those late bloomer people when it comes to discovering the pweetty combination of red and black. Simply said, I'm hooked. 

On another note, jumping like a kid cause I just found out how to really get a film-ish tone by accident!!!! It would be lovely if anyone who knows can recommend a good film camera for amateurs. Now, back to editing shall we...

P.S: this new THE XX song is LIFE. Enjoy<3 






Love,

BAD DECISIONS

Hello! Back from my hiatus. This whole month of October was basically a big blur. Been enjoying my life a bit too much that so many photos taken were left unedited (read= college life is awesome).  This was one of the series. Wearing a brand that literally makes everyone insane in 2016, Anti Social Social Club. 

top & sneakers: TOPSHOP, pants: ZARA ,outerwear: ANTI SOCIAL SOCIAL CLUB, bag: DYLAN KAIN
Combining it with FINALLY a legit flare pants! Kudos to my mom for being such an observant slash biggest fan of Zara. Might as well call this my Goofy pants and I'm loving it <333 

Shoot was basically taken during my brief term-break back home. Anddd you know you're in Jakarta when the security kicked you out during a photo session. Luckily managed to get some good shots though, kudos to my partner in every crime Kellyyy for taking these despite the terrible wind!

More about ASSC, not gonna lie, I was a bit disappointed with how long the shipping took. Ordered two stuffs in total and arrived almost a month later. The verdict? Yes, I felt an indescribable pride somehow wearing it. Something like "am I cool enough to join the street wear clan or nah?" Love the branding, I mean how can you not? The material is however not my favorite thing, so yeah I may or may not purchase again. It all depends on the new designs/whatever ASSC has in future and I'm looking forward to it. 

P.S: publishing this after three consecutive days of celebrating Halloween and safe to say my body need its power nap; thus explains my 'all-over-the-place' writing! On the contrary, hope everyone had an awesome halloween without way too many scare-jumps like mine ;)






Love,

M.x

SWAY

Hi my name is melisa and I wear red boots with long ass heels to look cool. Presenting you one of my most favourite spot to shoot in Singapore...the National Stadium.

top: MONKI, outerwear: ADIDAS, skirt: VINTAGE, bag: KATE SPADE, boots: CARVELA


Taken by my sister during her short getaway here. We were basically half-awake during the shoot, waking up at 8 and rushing through the stadium. Quick tip: never skip breakfast before taking photos or you'll end up with a "I'm-gonna-eat-you-alive" facial expression like mine.

Not gonna lie, this is such a delayed work thanks to my procrastinating habits these days. Seriously, in need of some high-tech time management apps here! My 2 weeks term break are finally over and I'm low-key reminiscing the good life back home while writing this post.

Now enough with my so called teenage life. Stealing my dad's Adidas Skateboarding outerwear once again (sorry dad) and love how it just balanced the whole outfit. Outerwear = life saviour. This outfit is technically a super random mix and match here and there, some are stuffs I never thought I would wore. Like this total quirky skirt! Such a rare vintage found and I LOVE IT.

Safe to say how hot heeled-boots are now so last but not least, my kryptonite, the Carvela by Kurt Geiger which was on 90% discount, I REPEAT 90% discount. How could you even resist these babies? Definitely gonna wear these pair everyday just for the fun of it ;)

 


Love,




M.x

STRUCK

With this post being created I am glad to announce I'm finally on term break!!! YASSSSS *dabbing countless of times* 
top: THE EDITOR'S MARKET, shorts: ZARA, outerwear: BUGIS, sneakers: ADIDAS, sunglasses: MONKI
Basically a pretty short and straight-forward outfit post to begin my holiday. Excited to go back home and reunited with friends, families, and my dog, because let's just face it, your pet = your life #sorrymom. A very very tropical outfit indeed, which I actually wore during day 2 of We the Fest. Didn't get to took any photo wearing this at the concert bc of the drizzle (or perhaps, too busy dancing to The 1975) but oh well! 

Insanely in love with this kimono right here, got it from Bugis street and just more and more reason why you MUST visit it while in Singapore. Oh, I have also joined the "lace up" top squad, and it's safe to say I'm never going back.

On another note, new video is up on my Youtube channel, "What to Wear to a Music Festival + WetheFest 2016 recap!" Check it out and don't forget to subscribe ;) 






Love,

IT'S ALRIGHT

Sup blogging world? I'm back!! And because I have been so bad at posting lately, I'mma give you 2 outfits in return..

top: ZARA, dress: TEMT, boots: MARC & STUART, socks: HUF
top: POMELO, pants: BUGIS, socks: HUF, sneakers: CONVERSE
Special thanks to these two for taking my photos! x

The past 3 weeks have been..wild to say the least. Dealing with never-ending assignments back and forth, flying back home for We the Fest (video coming up!), meeting new people, getting sick, and etc. Nevertheless, I'm lucky to have my mates to go crazy with whenever things get out of hand. 

Wearing my luv not-so-turtleneck but is actually a turtleneck striped top from Zara! And for the 2 months I've been in Singapore, it's safe to say that I've fallen in love with Bugis. Yassss the place for all the fashion stuffs you thought you never need. Basically my kryptonite here and this slip-dress and striped pleated culotte are some of my purchases from there. 

Try taking a walk to Bugis Street too, where it's simply impossible not to shop. 

Just realised how often I wore patterned socks like these two from Huf! My inner-emo just couldn't handle the cuteness of it I guess So perhaps, a how to wear weird socks for next post? ;) 

Been listening to a lot of deep house and soul music like Honne. Their track "Somebody that Loves You" definitely got me feeling some type of way. 



Love,


M.x
