Hiiii first post in 2016 :-) Velvet, leather, heels? Basically a pretty rare outfit I would wear. 

top: ZARA, skirt: H&M, heels: JEFFREY CAMPBELL, sunglasses: VINTAGE

To be honest, I feel pretty weird in this outfit. It somehow didn't suit my style at all. But anyways, I'm absolutely IN LOVE with anything that comes with velvet so therefore, this outfit must be published. And what even more perfect than leather to combine this grungy + velvety top?

Am wearing a 20cm heels so basically, it's only right for me to share some #TallGirlProblems I've went through of my 17 years on this world. Woah. I'm actually just a bit taller than 170cm, which might not be considered tall for overseas countries. But in Asia, it's a pretty big deal. So here goes nothing! 

numero uno. Showing up in any formal occasion wearing those killer heels (bc let's face it, what's the fun in wearing flats),  and end up looking like a giant.

numero dos. Getting rhetorical questions such as "WHAT DID U EAT TO GET SO TALL" "HOW DO U GET SO TALL" "OH MY GOD DID YOU SWIM/PLAY BASKET?" Seriously, how in the world does one answer that.

numero tres. Getting nonsense requests such as "Can u like spare me some of your heights please? K thx bye" Uh, I suck at Science but pretty sure that's impossible so stahp. 

numero quarto. When you wore all the midi dress/skirt yet it ends up looking like mini ones. Seriously, I totally lose count on just how many clothes I didn't wear because it looks too short on me. 

numero cinco. People are most likely to think you're a model no matter how very unmodel-like your face structure is. I'm still contemplating whether this one's a sarcastic comment, or a perks really. 

Well what can I say, it's a blessing and a curse at the same time. No offence for all the lists above, just pouring out all my thoughts and hope some people can relate to it. Moreover, no matter how annoying it might gets, I'm grateful for my height and I will for sure try to be more confident over time. It is 2016 after all..





  1. SLAY GIRL, SLAY. AND YAS. Finally someone who relates!

    Getting asked "how did you get so tall?" is the WORST. And my obsession with platform heels on casual days don't help at all. The final one, too. Just because I'm tall doesn't mean I'm a "model" amiRIGHT

  8. Loving the leather detail on the top! Great find!
    I feel you about being tall in Asia, everyone really does assume you're a model. Which is weird, because I'm in Korea, and the Korean models are TALL. Like, at least 5 foot 9. Oh well, we should just take it as a compliment I suppose.
