Fashion victim moments: Gold ankle cuffs

Unbranded gold cuffs, bottom pic via Jak&Jil.

I guess we were totally enchanted by the ankle cuff idea we saw on jak&jil, with stylorectic taking a note on this soon to be major trend in Copenhagan fashion week, I made a trip hunting an affordable version (come on we've got 2 legs means double the cost), found them and will have them exploited asap.

Conflicting hues

Beyond Retro vintage swimsuit, Topshop harness, vintage skirt, customized Topshop slippers, Comme des Garcons bag.

High Summer. Whilst its already getting chilli in London, layering still doesn't seem to have stood chance in Hong Kong. I'm dosing myself with some 90s vibe with some high neck tops, leather skirt and started brushing my hair properly. Currently addicted to this vintage swimsuit I found in Beyond Retro which I bought a while ago, it kind of tells me sometimes clothes are like wine, it takes time to make one realize the beauty of a piece of garment, and perhaps some quality time spent with the wearer.Loving the high neck and cut out back feature and the texture gives a lot of layering potential during Winter days. Now i'm kind of layering this, with some harnesses, with some sleek(er) hair, I think I hate the Summer heat less and perhaps will start missing it when I smell Autumn in the breeze.

Topshop boutique Tee, Hair by Oscar at Hair Stage Central

If life is about decisions, the worst thing you can do is to live in dilemmas.
It might sound completely nuts to spend a few hundred pounds, take 15 hours to bleach your hair to death and feel sort of empowered at the end, and this is what I did. Having myself patiently waited for more than a year, I did what I promised to myself.
Ever feel caged by something you don't like? whether its by how you look, by someone you can't let go of, by a job that you never liked, or by your past, do anything as long as you can free yourself.
whether you spend a fortune try to steal someone's style, risk your credit and dignity to break a relationship you hate, or unfriend some one you've been hating for centuries, do it and stop being a hypocrite to anyone and to yourself.
Yes people make assumptions. but before wasting time and effort to hate something or someone, ask yourself, how well they know you, and how much they know of their real self?
If that's your decision, who is gonna be in position to judge?
Do what you believe in , even its just as ridiculous as hearing bleaching your hair gives you super power to deal with anything, do it.
because there's nothing feels better than to be honest to yourself.

DIY inspirations: Louis Leeman slippers

Topshop Slippers, Stella Tennant on Vogue Japan Aug11

Stumbled upon these Louis Leeman slippers on Vogue Japan, I can't think of a better thing to do than DIYing. Having these Louboutin inspired Topshop studded slippers and some crucifixes I collected, I think I can get away of making up reasons not to save up for those Louboutins.
The slippers will be customized and ready to go in no time, whilst Ive got a million other projects I need to do, this is kind of some soul healing stitch and sew session for my post traumatic translation work syndrome.
