Wedge Love

I know men have this hatred of wedges but they just are so comfortable! I'm wearing my recent purchase from, Jil Sander Navy wedge shoes. They are injected with ultimate cool-factor and is great for summer as they have little holes all over them to let your little feet breathe!
It's finally sunny and warm here recently so I thought I might brighten things up a little. I'm carrying a Jeffrey Campbell neon yellow iPad case, it's a great gadget accessory for the summer! I went OTT and bought three different neon colours, they all came with strap so you can wear it across your body. 
They all came with an awesome way-too-big-for-an-iPad-cover dust bag. I think I will use two of them for other things like maybe turning it into a laundry bag, etc.

Leggings I'm wearing is again Been by D'heygere's banana print leggings from last year and it's still one of my favourites!

Enough of the rambling, I miss writing a blog so this is an update post because it's Friday relaxing time now!

Day Final - The Finale

This is my last day of the one month challenge! I'm going to miss doing this!

It was an extremely sunny day today so I decided to put on a dress! 

I have had an amazing one month of dressing up and put up an outfit everyday and I'm so glad lots of my clothes got to see the light again after so long. I will keep this blog up, random posts of fashion thoughts etc. will be here. So don't you worry I will still be around!

Day 30 - The Whites

I love wearing all white from time to time, it boosts my confidence!

As I promised, I changed my bag today! This Balenciaga City tote is so much lighter than my Celine bag! I like this baby blue tote a lot, you don't see Balenciaga with much pastel colour. It was love at first sight when I was just browsing in their Shanghai boutique.

One of the best things to pair with all white outfit is wearing nude shoes, in my opinion; because the colour doesn't over power the whites.

Day 29 - The Galaxy

Wearing another pair of my favourite leggings today, it's the multicoloured galaxy leggings from Blackmilk. 

I realised a good reason to swap bags constantly - you get rid of the useless things in your current bag and make your new bag lighter! Most ladies like large bags because they can fit everything they need in it but they get so heavy! This is why tomorrow I'm changing my bag!

Day 28 - The Formal

My hall of residence had a St Patrick's day formal tonight so this is my effort of stylishly wearing something green! I got this Mary Katrantzou dress for my Christmas present and I just haven't had a chance to wear it until today. I have to say I am absolutely in love with Mary Katrantzou's designs every season! Her designs shows the feminine side of women perfectly whilst at the same time make a woman feel very powerful.

Those with sharp eyes will see my Charlotte Olympia box clutch, it was a recent purchase of mine. It came with three different pouches for you to style with your outfit so tonight I went for the black/cream one so the outfit doesn't get too busy with patterns and colours.

Day 27 - The Orange

Ok, it may appear to be red but my shirt is actually bright orange! It was my effort to brighten up the gloomy weather today. Comfortable Inoue Brothers cardigan again to block out all the cold weather again.

I'm slowly digging out my shorts in preparation for the hopefully-getting-warmer weather. You should be seeing some shorts going on for the rest of this 30-day challenge.

Day 26 - The Neon

I was going neon again yesterday, walking around with my bright neon green beady cardigan was so much fun! It was a Christopher Kane cardigan, I admire his talent and I am constantly impressed by his designs year after year.

Day 25 - The Library

I swear I wasn't being lazy today... I'm going for the comfortable look today, hard work in the library!

I still find it hard to wear this pair of trousers. I tried to wear a white shirt with it before and I looked like a painter!

Day 24 - The Red

I like teaming a loose jumper with black leggings look it's so casual and for a student like me, it's a look we all have to embrace! The colour today is red!

I am again wearing a Wildfox jumper, I fell in love with it the first time I saw it and it has been in and out of my wardrobe ever since I bought it! The shoes are from a special collaboration between COMME des Garçon and Repetto. The leather on them are so soft and thin I can't wear them all the time because they will get worn out really easily. People who own Repetto flats would know how extremely comfortable their shoes are and this pair is just as comfortable as their flats!

Day 23 - The Wildfox

Today's blog is called Wildfox for the cool Wildfox t-shirts. I have multiple Wildfox t-shirts in my wardrobe because of the awesome graphics and the extreme comfort! They are so comfortable sometimes I wear them as pyjama tops. Wildfox came under the radar in the fashion world when celebrities starts to wear their love potion number 9 t-shirt. They are a celebrities' choice of casual tees.

There is a great selection of wildfox styles at AdHoc on King's Road, London. Pop in and have a look!

Day 22 - The Painting

Lesson learnt: never trust the weather man! I thought it was going to be sunny today so I dug out my pink fluorescent bag by Diane De Maria bonnie bag last night and got ready to embrace the sun. But it wasn't sunny at all today. 

Long story short, Diane De Maria herself as an artist was inspired by her grandfather's painting Le Final and artistically put them onto a bag - Bonnie bag. This bag is one of those bag that boosts your confidence and it is extremely eye catching (in a good way). 

Read more about this bag at the Diane De Maria website.

Day 21 - The Jumper

Sunday means relaxing / watching relatives playing hockey day! 

Being in the UK, you'll know you'll always end up needing a jumper with you just in case the weather changes! So you grab a jumper when it's sunny and wrap it around your neck in case of the sun decides to play hide and seek with you! However, today the sun was nice and friendly I never actually wore the jumper. Again it's one of my cable knits from Ralph Lauren for a classic laid back look.

Day Twenty - The Seaside

I think I need to invest in a MacBook Air if I keep on doing the amount of travelling I have been doing recently to be able to keep the blog updated everyday! 

So I had a lovely trip down to Lymington this weekend, with the amazing weather I had such a relaxing time! I packed nice pastel coloured clothes for the trip and I think they go really well with the sea side scene... The jeans I'm wearing there is a new purchase from Rag & Bone, I have to admit they are quite comfortable and very cool with the colour blocking patterns. It also makes me want to go to the gym more due to the white-make-you-look-chubby effect! Haha

Day Nineteen - The Blues

I love another sunny day, spring is really here so I thought I should brighten things up a little. The whole print trend for this spring has finally affected me and I dipped my toes in for a quick try today. I don't own much print clothing so I dug out what I had and this is what I came up with.

Those with sharp eyes might have noticed I'm wearing the trousers from Erdem cruise collection 2011, I absolutely adore that collection and will keep wearing this pair of trousers for a long time pass the season. The Erdem trousers are so comfortable and pretty you can't say no to them! The only downfall with this print is I find it quite hard to pair things with it. I usually start dressing up with trousers/leggings and work my way around it. Today I thought I would pair this sleeveless top from ASOS (a great buy in my opinion) for a gradual change in patterns and colours.

You have seen the flats from Day Four and again I cannot stress more how comfortable these Miu Miu flats are (once you have worn them in that is)!

Day Eighteen - The Tetris

So I am here confessing that my endless love for tetris has extended to my love of leggings so I have gone for a slight geeky look today.
The watch I'm wearing is glow in the dark by Nixon and it will be your cool accessory you can't live without if you're a party animal.
This ring I'm wearing today is by the Japanese designers called e.m., they are known for great details and the quality of the hand made jewellery. I found this ring in a small boutique called Viola at the Connaught Village. Great shop for finding amazing designs!

Day Seventeen - The Dots

You may say the polka dots are so last season but I started wearing polka dots before it got popular and it is a very 'me' thing I guess. I intend to keep wearing the polka dots like I have before they got popular last year. 
I love the double dots here! 

I am again wearing an equipment shirt here, I have a whole stack of them in my wardrobe. Equipment silk shirts are so comfortable and classic in their styles they'll never go out of date! I strongly recommend you start a collection of Equipment shirts!

Day Sixteen - The Geometrics

Such a lovely sunny day today here and it's happy day!!! I realised how much I love my leggings and how many pairs I actually own!!! 

From the picture, the top looks like it doesn't fit but it does. It just has a square shape. This top was one of my recent 'digs' from ASOS - it's so cute!

The leggings are by Holly Fulton, I adore her prints! They are very cleverly designed to define your figure well!

Day Fifteen - The Rocco

So I said I was going to crack out my sunglasses when it's sunny, I woke up in a sun-filled room and the first thought was to get my shades out!

If you have been following my blog you'd realised by now I have been wearing one bag a week - the choice this week is the Alexander Wang Rocco brass studded bag. There have been mixed reviews of this bag on the internet from various fashion blogs and I also have a love-hate relationship with this bag.

It was a huge hit when it first came out and I had been salivating over them ever since and I finally bought one last year. It looks extremely trendy and has been an all time celebrity choice since it came out but I don't understand how people can swear by this bag! Ok, take for granted celebs have body guards and cars so they don't necessary need to carry the bag all the time but this bag is SOOOO heavy with the solid studs at the bottom! When you actually carry this bag it looks nothing like it does on the web because you'll never actually fill this bag up because it is so heavy all you think of when packing this bag is to minimise the contents.

Well I guess maybe people have strong arms!

Now the sunglasses! I am wearing the Cutler and Gross vintage faux tortoise shell sunglass with the model number of 0156 bought from Dover Street Market. I have consulted the Cutler and Gross boutique assistance and was told that this is a very rare model! It's a very cool model and almost goes with everything you're wearing and I love it!

Day Fourteen - The Louboutin

So today I was really boring and didn't wear anything interesting but I went hunting for Christian Louboutin's 20 anniversary capsule collection and I got some pretty shoes! They are so pretty I had to buy them! 

The boxes come in a 20 anniversary edition and they are going to be two of the few shoe boxes I keep for life! 
This is why women all over the world loves Loubi the red soles!!!!!! The capsule collection come with a special shoe bag that is just sooooooo sexy! 
So even the wrapping paper are special ones! 
Tada the sandals! I am never a real big fan on the whole oriental influence in the western world of designs but I was quite brave today and tried on this pair of sandals and they are absolutely stunning and so laid back I wish I own a yacht and have time to cruise around in them.

I went to Louboutin's London Motcomb street branch today asking for the capsule collection and was told the only place that sells them at the moment was Selfridges so I got straight into the taxi and rushed to Selfridges in the fear that they haven't got any of the shoes with my sizes left! When I got there I asked for all the models with my size available and picked the Pigalove (the black ones with crystal 'love' across them) and the Copte (detailed above). 

OH SO LOUBI!!!!!!!

Day Thirteen - The Star

So I had a busy weekend in London studying and shopping and getting my birthday present!
This was what I was wearing on Saturday when studying. I may have worn the same jumper again but hey you'll let me off this time!

So this was my birthday present, it's not just a star! It's a star that twists! This is a part of collection by Solange Azagury-Partridge called 24/7, the detail you can see here on the picture in the middle sections of the stars are actually indented! A very cool collection indeed! I'll put the link below so you can have a look at the high definition pictures.

Day Twelve - The Loafers

I had three minutes to get dressed today! Gosh this is getting harder and harder everyday! I always find it easier to wear loafers with something classic.

The loafers I'm wearing today is by Salvatore Ferragamo but a collection called Ferragamo's creation. They basically remake the old models with the techniques used at that time. Mine are hand-woven raffia loafers and they're COLOURFUL!!! Dover Street Market stocks them if you want your hands on a pair of vintage Ferragamo shoes!

Day Eleven - The Pineapple

Got back from London this morning and had experiments to do at 9 in the morning so I just threw on some clothes and ran straight to the lab! At least it's not as disastrous as it could've turned out! Lovely weather today, I think it's about time to dig out my sunglasses if the weather stays the same. Spring is really here!

Again I'm wearing Been by D'heygere's fruit leggings again guess what it is?

YES! It's pineapples... (in case the title didn't give it away)

Going grocery shopping has never been this much fun!

Day Ten - The Coat

I absolutely adore Stella McCartney's coat here! It's classic and goes with almost everything you wear and most of all it keeps you warm! I'm wearing Christian Louboutin's simple pump and it's one of the most comfortable pair of heels I own.
