Concrete


( White shirt/ H&M, Coated trousers/ COS, Silver sandal heels/ Kmart, Sunglasses & Drop earrings/ OASAP)

I've been working at COS during my school break and I have slowly adapted my style to the modern and timeless aesthetic that the Swedish brand carries. Simply because there's no work uniform and we are expected to dress as a COS representative. Button up shirts have been a staple piece in my wardrobe ever since I started work and I have introduced the classic button up into my casual everyday wear as well. You can never go wrong with white shirt. For this outfit, I teamed the fitted trousers with a loose fit shirt, untucked at the back for a more relaxed look. Wore silver sandal heels and rhinestone drop earrings to add a feminine aspect to the androgynous style.
I recently cut my hair if you noticed a change! I wasn't planning on such a short length and I was in a state of panic when I saw the amount of hair that was chopped off. But I have always wanted to try a shorter hairstyle so I'm happy with how it turned out.

The Tassel Dress

















(Tassel dress/ OASAP, Felt hat/ OASAP, Slip-on sneakers/ Topshop, Cross-body bag/ Thrifted, Earrings/ Mango)

After a month long hiatus, I'm finally back with an outfit post. I've been preoccupied with work and life, so I took a break from blogging. I forgot how time-consuming it actually can be until I was preparing for this post, but nevertheless I enjoy what I do. 
I selected this black tassel dress simply because I don't own anything with fringe/ tassel detailing and I like how it reminded me of the 20's flapper style. To my surprise, its actually a two-piece with a tassel overlay and black slip. I didn't really like how it was separates at first but the slip has come in handy to wear under my other sheer garments. I styled this dress with a wide-brim felt hat and wore my trusty sneakers for a casual vibe. Accessorized with silver and gold jewelry to contrast against the all black ensemble. I don't usually wear earrings apart from studs because I think I look weird with drop earrings. And once my sister said I looked like a hooker when I wore hoops so I stopped wearing earrings after that tragic comment hahaha. But I think I'm gravitating towards earrings again. I bought this pair on impulse one day because I was really intrigued by their design. My mum called me an Ah Lian when I wore these, I guess because it looks like I have a gauge piercing (#offended but I still love you mummy), so I was second guessing my purchase. But I'll continue to wear them because I find them super edgy and they reminded me of like dinosaur teeth.

Hope you have a blessed weekend!
