My romance with shoes started when I was just a little girl. Pouring over the illustrated pages of my Ladybug fairy tales like Cinderella and the Elves and the Shoemaker, the allure was always the eclectic upturn of the shoe tip and the beautiful dress but never the Prince. In... Continue reading

It's always been a bit of a dream to pack my suitcase one morning, make my way to the airport and take the first flight out. My parents often tell me of my free spirit since young, this tendency to live in the moment. I guess, your parents do know... Continue reading

It's been a while lovers... I've been so busy in the real world, this fantasy land of mine has been tucked deep into the recesses of my life. But all a unicorn needs is a little inspiration, a little push. What better way than the not-so-recent arrival of my 300th... Continue reading

A couple of weeks ago, there was a query on one of the Black Milk Clothing community pages on how to fold skater dresses into neat little rectangles. Infamous for my OCD and hoarding ways, I was tagged in the post. I posted about this once before on my now... Continue reading

It's been ages since I blogged in this space. New Year holidays, plus I have a new outfit to show off, so I figured, why not? My pretend studio was occupied today, so I decided to shoot a couple of pics of my Chinese New Year outfit using my full-length... Continue reading

(Wearing: Max.Tan dress) I've been following the work of avant garde Singaporean designer Max.Tan for a few years. I'm the craziest fan of his voluminous pieces, and I had my eye on two epic coats - one in bright pink and another in black - but the sale was cash... Continue reading

You guessed it! My Irregular Choice X Star Wars shoes have arrived. Yoda is still en route at customs, but the other two character heels have made their much anticipated arrival. Got a little bored, and decided to shoot and show you my weekend uniform these days - Touchdown and... Continue reading

If I could surmise my life in a shoe, it would most certainly be the likes of Irregular Choice. Even so, I'm not quite referring to the slightly muted albeit colourful Abigails or the classy Nick of Times, but the full-on crazy Character Heels. If anything, I think designer Dan... Continue reading

Welcome to Sunday. The first Sunday in weeks where I don't feel like dying. With the a/c cranked up this afternoon, I did a little shoot in the mid-day with my new winter coat. (Wearing: Peter Pilotto SB printed wool blend coat, Black Milk Superman touchdown, Black Milk Blue Galaxy... Continue reading

My favourite version of the fairytale Cinderella, is the original by the Grimm brothers. Mostly because Cinderella got to wear three dress, and not one blue one like Disney would have you believe. In this much darker version, there's no fairy godmother but a bunch of birds that ended up... Continue reading

In the climax of the famous fairy tale Cinderella, Prince Charming slips on the dainty glass slipper and Cinderella transforms into a beautiful princess. And, we all know the drill - Prince Charming and Cinderella meet and he falls head-over-heels for her. He tries to track her down, and she... Continue reading

(Wearing: Mu kimono crop top, Black Milk King Tut longsleeve dress, Zara pumps) Got home a little earlier than usual after leaving work to run an errand as the post office. Decided, after showering, to style my King Tut dress with a new kimono I bought last weekend. This kimono... Continue reading

09-사랑 아니었나 The crease of wrinkled flesh, the grooves of sequined shoes, the wafting of freshly cooked hotcakes. Last Saturday can only be described as an exercise of the five senses. The context? The National Museum underwent an overhaul, and I decided to spend the day in the downtown area... Continue reading

So... a really long time ago, I started this little side project called 'The Shoe Project' on my old blog. It was an exciting journey photographing my beloved shoe collection. I would move to little corners around my well-decorated home (thanks Mum!) to style and shoot. I am by no... Continue reading

We all know how much I love my Dr Martens, so much so there's a little tag for it on my blog. While I may not have THAT many pairs, suffice to say, I have the most number of shoes from the cult British label. If anyone asks, "I got... Continue reading

Bought me two new pairs of Irregular Choice shoes at the recent Solestruck sale. The first, the ever impractical Big Top platforms. Call me crazy, but the concept is to have these on display in my shoe room, which is currently pending remodelling. And alas, while my Big Top platforms... Continue reading

Life swirls, busyness consumes. Time to take a bit of a retreat an retrace some of my steps. Decided this evening, since I am home alone, to pull out some shoes and style an outfit. I was going for 'every day chic'. Don't know how well I pulled off the... Continue reading

I think I'm back into the groove of things. Truth is, this blogging business is really therapeutic, but busy bee me really hasn't had the time to sit down, conceptualise and shoot. I'm planning to change all that. Consider this blog revived... kinda. In retrospect, I really miss the times... Continue reading

(Wearing: Poprageous Shining Dress, Ann Demeulemeester Vitello Lavato Nero) (Wearing: Zara bejewelled cargo top, Poprageous Shining Dress, Ann Demeulemeester Vitello Lavato Nero) I've always had a penchant for the creepy. While watching the 1940s horror film The Invisible Man Returns starring Vincent Price, inspiration struck and I dug out this... Continue reading

I have allergies to alcohol, so this is probably the closest I am ever going to get to red wine. (Wearing: Black Milk Mulled Wine Evil Cheerleader dress, Black Milk Wet Look pantyhose, Zara tri-colour booties) I must say, this double BM combi caught even me by surprise. Usually I'm...

Hi! Welcome to the weekend! A wrong bus had me on a little solo adventure for the day, and to my favourite homegrown fashion brand MDS Clothing. Inexpensive, blog shop-type easy-peasy wear, is how I like to think of shopping there. But the boutique chain as one up on its... Continue reading

*Pfft Pfft Pfft* *Blows off cobwebs flying in face* Sorry guys for having gone missing for a pretty long time. Once in a while, real life really does get the better of one, and one really is too pooped at the end of the day to get dressed up and... Continue reading

The eponymous Purple Koi maxi is a love or hate it piece, in my opinion. While one school adores its fussy print, the fashion minimalists among us hate it. Nevertheless, the maxi was one of the best sellers from the Press Play collection, Black Milk reports on the fanpage. Needless... Continue reading
