For my two HS best buddies' birthday celeb, I wore an all white outfit with hints of pink and tan for an innocent and lolita-ish look. It was quite a feat to remain clean and pristine with this outfit considering that I commuted from my dorm in Taft all the way to the far far land of FARview, I mean Fairview while it was pouring. I remember thinking to myself while waiting for a FX at the kanto in Taft, "Great timing Jonessa. Wear white when you're gonna step on muddy puddles and get splashed with water". Hehe. But we rarely see each other anymore so everyone really made an effort to come despite the bad weather. So yeah, I had a wonderful time catching up with my high school chums and even I could tell that I was particularly hyper and cheery that day. Amazing how the right people can bring out all the positive traits and the best in you. :) top- Simone's Closet metal choker- F-Stop shorts- Karissa flats- Parisian
Type. Delete. Type. Delete. How the hell do I start this post? I am struggling to find the words and having a mental battle between keeping things private and sharing a few personal things on this blog. After all, my online life is still a part of my life. So how do I do this? Ah. Since I am very "ceremonial" when it comes to things, might as well share. (Yes! I've finally come to a decision!) *pats myself on the back* Sorry if you had to read my internal struggle. *laughs* He is far too important for him not to be included and introduced in my blog. So anyway, meet Hungry Boy and Parched Girl. Very complementary. He has an enthusiasm for food that equals his passion for music while he's found out that she more than enjoys her cocktails, shots, and wine. But a 'lil disclaimer, Parched Girl is no alcoholic. Haha! So yes, this guy here is the "Mark" that I've been mentioning ever-so-casually in my previous posts. More outfit-shot-taking-obligations for you dear! Prost! Cheers!

Oh dear. Look at me blogging at an ungodly hour...again. My body clock is so messed up right now, I've been waking up automatically at 3 or 4 in the morning then going back to sleep a few hours later. If I remember correctly, my previous post was also typed and published during this hour. The scenario was this: I suddenly woke up in my dorm bed. Groggily and instinctively knew it was 3-4 am. Willed myself back to sleep but just can't. Felt more alert than ever, thoughts sharper and clearer. Uttered "What-the-hell" and just grabbed my laptop and typed away. This post has been drafted for so long it's begging to be published NOW. Do bear with me and my 4am thoughts. :) These photos were taken on a random shopping day out with my mom and meeting with my lover! (Ha-ha-ha!) This kind of outfit easily became my uniform. Sheer collared blouse, metal neckpiece hidden underneath collars, slim-fitting jeans and heels. I didn't even notice that I've been wearing too much sheer tops with collars like this until Mark pointed it out. I don't think my love affair with it will end anytime soon though. What can I say, it perfectly suits my style. top- Forever21 jeans- Jag shoes and metal neckpiece- F-Stop clutch- from Singapore
And I'm backkk! If the malware problem of my blog hadn't been fixed by now, I swear I'd get blogging withdrawal/anxiety. I wonder if you guys get that too? Anyway, a million thanks to my hero-slash-IT-expert-slash-tutor Mark for helping me with this!
Now onto the look! This was my outfit when we went out to celebrate Father's Day at Shangri La Chinese Resto. The top and shorts seemed like they were meant for each other, yeah? Decided to go all matchy-matchy on this one for that quirky-fun look. If you're scared to try out the print-on-print look, then I have two tips for you (not that I'm an expert on this or anything). 1) Polka and stripes are a match made in heaven. There's just something about combining straight hard lines with soft round curves like circles that makes it geometrically pleasing to the eyes (woah, Geometry! Haha!). But seriously, if you're still not too "out there" in trying out this trend then you should definitely go for this more subtle print combo. 2) Tone it down so your outfit won't look too busy. In my case, I opted to wear a top with a simple cut (t-shirt) and plain front design. All of the print action was happening at the back. Then I used black accents and stuck to two color schemes which was black and fuchsia.
Hope that helps! :)
