In the Negative

I am not one who often wears shirts with a great deal of words or sentences on it. Why? I usually encounter curious strangers who try to quickly read what the shirt says as they are walking past. Most times, it usually results in awkwardness between that person and I, as we both end up looking at each other instead. Yeah, I'm just going to pretend that the situation is not awkward, and that I will continue to walk ahead...

However, 'This is not a Chanel shirt' from Off Da Hook was an exception due to its somewhat quirky nature (a play on words that are based on today's pop- culture). There were other selections from the range, with their ideas from brands including Kenzo, Valentino and Hermes. I ended up picking the Chanel one simply because I want everything Chanel. Ahhhh, a girl can dream.

I am trying to gradually incorporate more colours into my recent outfits to enhance the spring/ summer vibe. These days, I tend to stay away from wearing too much pink as it can often come across as being too girly in my eyes. Other days, you'll find me walking up and down boutiques hunting for a new wardrobe staple: a pink top to add to my collection. Yeah, I am definitely indecisive.

For example, I felt that draping on this pastel, pink, pleather jacket was an awesome idea to help soften up this overall look. So, why sling and not just put my arms into the sleeves..? Well, I obviously wanted people to see the shirt without undergoing too much difficulty. I am not going to lie though, I personally would not recommend partaking in this trend if it's extremely windy outside. You don't want to look like an idiot as you're shamelessly chasing after your jacket or coat that happened to fall off those delicate shoulders of yours. It's about being fashion smart. 

Moving on, I am certain that most, or if not all of us had seen the heart- breaking headlines on the harrowing incidents that occurred days ago in Sydney, and Pakistan. My condolences goes out to all the affected family members and friends. The grief and tragedy of losing innocent lives is never something any of us humans should be proud of. May they all rest in peace. 

On a lighter note, I have been featured in South Australian Style's latest edition, alongside Lucy of She Shopped, in a three page spread to represent Rundle Mall. You can suss out the digital copy here
