Zebra



( White mens t-shirt/ COS, Black midi skirt/ Qoo10, Pearl statement necklace/ OASAP, Sneakers/ TopShop

I really have no inspiration for this blog post title, so I shall name it after one of my favourite animals, the zebra. In actual fact, I only like the zebra purely because it is black and white.

I kind of regretted choosing this necklace from OASAP, because it took me so long to style an outfit around. So, I kept it to the basic colors throughout, you generally can't go wrong with a black and white outfit. I had a hard time choosing what to wear because every dress I wore with this necklace made the look outfit too dressy. The necklace itself is somewhat formal and elaborate, so I didn't want to look too dressed up. So I dressed the necklace down with a plain white tee and sneakers. But I still manage to balance the casual/formal look with this black midi. I love the volume and texture of this skirt, not to mention the practical pockets!

Avery





(Sol Sana Avery flat sandalShopBop, Suede bucket bag/ Vintage, Amethyst necklace/ Uncle)

I've been in the need of a staple black leather sandal for months already. So when ShopBop generously offered to sponsor me, I immediately browsed their sandals range! I chose the Avery sandal amongst the other designs offered at ShopBop. The Avery sandal is from Sol Sana, an Australian label specializing in women's footwear. I like how the thick cross-over and buckle straps is very reminiscent of ancient Roman sandals. My colleague from work said they reminded her of Hercules and Xena haha, I think so too.

I've been wearing this sandal for two weeks or so, and so far I love its versatility. They match many of my outfits and they have become my go-to shoe for school if I'm not wearing sneakers. Unlike most footwear, these didn't give my any blisters or discomfort when I first wore them, and even up to now. I can wear them the entire day without my feet feeling tired. I totally recommend these sandals! They fit true to size and the bottom and top straps are all adjustable with the buckle fastening. 

Paired these shoes with my new high neck dress, I bought it purely because they had pockets! My suede bucket bag was passed down to me by my dear Aunty. I love the rich wine color, I've always wanted a red bag. Its super roomy and it can even fit my DSLR, with my giant water bottle, amongst my other bag items. According to her, she has had it for about 20 years old now! Its as old as me, legitimately vintage.
