So, back in Melbourne once again and the weather has been fairly good. Warm and windy, perfect for the Moomba Festival I'll be heading to tonight where bright lights, fun fair games and a cacophony of sounds come together. Moomba has been a yearly thing ever since I got here and when heading to a funfair, dressing comfortably is of course, so important just so you can win that plush toy playing those endless funfair games! Haha.

There are days where I'd much prefer to dress a little more conservative and even a little more simple, like for Sunday lunches with Granny. I've been looking for a crisp, white dress shirt but with no avail for a pretty long time. So you'd know I was pretty pleased with finding this one that fit nicely at H&M's men section for only RM 40! I paired it with jeggings here for a more conservative, classy look but a men's dress shirt can easily be transformed into something a little more sensual. Every girl should own one in their wardrobe just because it can be dressed up pretty much anyway you want. I threw on both a classy neck piece and a more colourful, fun organic necklace to make it more exciting. Why wear one when you can wear two?

Each look was accompanied by a lengthy butterfly-like printed scarf --sometimes in absolute contrast to the look-- and it was perfect. I am definitely taking note of doing that for my next outfit. There was so much fabric, and yet the models weren't drowning. Perhaps it was the cinched waists with belts (skinny and thick) that did the trick, keeping waists high.

Starring Chinese supermodel Xiao Wen Ju, Lane Crawford’s Botanica campaign is one that is both artfully imaginative and captivating. In collaboration with hair designer Katsuya Kamo, Lane Crawford showcases Kamo’s exquisite headpieces across all their stores with accompanying videos and stills that are nothing short of extraordinary. The campaign stills display a blooming energy of flora in an oriental yet modern theme with an explosion of bright colours that is spring/summer ready. Such beautiful images that I desperately want to blow up and print to frame up on my bedroom walls.

Chinese New Year.. a time when you visit long lost relatives and indulge in New Year cookies. But of course, for many, it becomes a time when prying eyes of relatives and aunties assess how you've done over the year. "What're you doing now? Where and what are you studying? Boyfriend? Too skinny! Too fat! Your skin!" and the list of familiar questions go on.
I’ve never been bothered too much with questions as such, (thank goodness) – or maybe I just don’t mind them. Either way, I always try to dress a little bit daintier when meeting relatives. Nothing too short, nothing too revealing and my favourite, brighter colours (never black during the New Year). To me, dressing appropriately is a simple sign of respect especially when meeting the elderly, apart from simple manners of course. Besides that, if you really do fear prying questions, you cut down many of the preconceptions just by looking sweet and smiling (;
Always, always dress like a darling cup of tea - with two cubes of sugar during this festive season.
