Winter Pink

As consumers, we are bombarded with visual information from hundreds of sources everyday. But I have the opposite problem that most people have – I am not easily influenced. If I wear something, it is quite likely to be an item that is tried-and-true or something from my own “fashion bucket list” that I have coveted for some time.

I went to visit some of my favourite architectural structures in December. This gasholder has been converted into a park.


Life of a short lady – forever looking up.

This is how I stay true to my style and also budget constraints:

Embrace the power of season-less shoes. I love the nerdy look of footwear with socks or tights – both plain and interesting ones. This sort of style has been adopted on Prada, Miu Miu, and Marni runways for years, and interestingly also worn by politicians like Justin Trudeau.

Dress is a way of communicating your personality or identity:

Designer brands are very different from each other. They all have different muses, and often different customer profiles in mind when they design. I asked myself, what kind of consumer am I? I suppose what I wish to dress like is a sort of feminine geek.

Experimenting within my comfort zone. For example, I adore polo necks so I love trying different variations of them.

Winter style made cosy and festive with vibrant and luxurious-looking fabrics.

Very often, my outfit is not completely perfect. Case in point: my bag is dark brown rather than black. I waited until the right opportunity and budget. But for the meantime, I just rolled with it and had a great day anyway.

I love this simple yet interesting lighting installation.

I hope my readers also find joy in staying true within one’s own time and cost budget.
