Coco Chanel once told “Fashion is architecture,” and who am i to argue with that? Translated to this date’s design, some pieces of clothes are in fact not only created with high level of creativity but also the same level of architectural precision. Just take a look at those structured tops above. How could they possibly have sleeves so precisely curved, edges so sharp, surfaces so sleek, necklines so perfectly concave, and at the same time fits into a human’s body? Advanced level of mathematical scrutiny, without a doubt.
And now for the good news! The lovely miss Sophia (from Tao of Sophia) just opened her new online store in which she sells handmade leather tops (which i personally have a huge crush on!). She also agreed to generously give my readers 15 EUR off for that item by entering a special code. Just put your e-mail address on the comment box below, and i’ll e-mail you the code right away. The discount is only valid until 8th of April. So, why wait?
There’s an ambiguous quality of the shades that lies between white and black. Such quality that makes them complements every other colors, including those from their own kinds. So when the rest of all my black and white clothes are piling up in the laundry, i decide that it might be okay to stay in the limbo.
No worries, your monitor screen is not broken. The lack of colors you see is due to an attempt i made to dress myself up in reminisce of old broken TV screen. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Continue reading
Who doesn’t have a fair share of cheap metals and DIY jewelry? But let’s be fair, those things rarely lasts and would lost its appeal through times. Lightning-bolt-shaped pendants, and spiked bracelets might be edgy, for now. Of course if we’re lucky, the trend will reoccur but chances are huge for our grandchildren to put them under “100 silly trends of 2010s”.
In all exact contrast, a delicate princess cut diamond necklace might not be the talk of the town, but it sure will gracefully pass the test through times. Both physically, and aesthetically. The selection above are of beauties you can pass on for generations. They will conserve your stories and your memories just as long as they gilsten.
They do not cost you the earth either.
Because otherwise, what’s the point?

A jewelry brand i give my full support on by showing responsibility towards environment and community.
“Umm…, that’s very nice Mom, but, you know… I don’t actually wear jewelry”, was my first thought, when I received a dainty white gold bracelet –completed with tiny heart shaped pendants which induces me to purse my lips a la Miranda Priestly– as my 18th birthday present. Despite of passive-aggressively declaring “Mom, I would rather get myself another shoes than a fine jewelry”, i wore that bracelet anyway. And later, I have to admit that my mother indeed, knows best.
I love and cherish the idea of statement jewelries. But if i try to count my blessings, being graceful and coordinated are certainly far off the list. There’s a chance for me to get tripped or get tangled on my own enormous blings. So for those times where efforts seems to be overrated in terms of dressing, dainty jewelries will still give a hint of feeling like a lady, while still sets our movements free. We might even forget it’s attached somewhere on our body, but everyone can still see.
OOOH MYGOOOOD IT RHYYYYMES!
There were days when i tumblred through the nights, and now i spend all day building a dream home upon a thousand home idea pins. For that reason, if only online hoarding was a paid job, i’d probably be rich.
Internet allows us to see places we never visited, collect clothes we never owned, hang out with celebs who never knew we were alive, and feel the moment we never experienced. Basically creating the life we never had. Although that life only lies within millions of codes in the virtual world, it feels satiating enough that we prefer to sit in front of the monitor all day instead of actually make our way to it.
Yes i do that, and i plead guilty. Continue reading
Love, Life & The Latest Thing
This week NYFW hit the runways strutting everything we’ll be coveting over the next six months, but it’s also a time to think about love as Valentine’s Day closes out the week. Will you be celebrating? Some will, others will roll their eyes, but either way, it’s certainly fun to think about what we’ll be wearing. Continue reading
Due to lack of information about its historical background, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s day. A brief research I did on that matter –on the first page of google search result, five seconds before I wrote this– didn’t do much of help either. So if anybody know what happened once-upon-a-time ago that makes people decide to go all lovey dovey on that particular date, please do tell me.
Despite of all my indecisiveness, the amorous vibe had never been so intense at any other time of the year. So… let’s talk about love.
