What I Wore: Statement Basics at The Stables of Como

A few weekends ago, I caught up with a couple of my girlfriends over at The Stables of Como in South Yarra. It was sucha fun outing and we laughed so much! Brunch at The Stables was surprisingly good. Not only that, the service was amazing as well. I would highly recommend for those visiting Melbourne to give this cafe a shot. They also offer Picnic Basket Set Menu for those of you who wants to have a picnic around their garden. I know I will be one of these days! :)

Recently, I've been obsessed with graphic/statement basics. Be it a tee or a jumper. It's so easy to wear and goes with just about anything. You can dress it up with a skirt or go casual with just a pair of shorts and slip on sneakers. I recently got this Madewell Knit Jumper from Shopbop and I swear I've been living in it ever since.

If you like me, is always on the hunt for a good statement basics, here are some of my favourites:

What I Wore: Purple Incense Bow

I had the opportunity to collaborate with the lovely Nicole of Jesusitigerlily a few months ago. It was so refreshing to listen to an aspiring young photographer talk about her passion and her take on photography. I've always loved meeting young and talented ones like her. Their passion and drive really motivates me to never give up in what ever that I'm pursuing. It's also very rare to see young one likes her who is doing something they are passionate in during their free time (she's still studying) and not wasting it away, like say in a mall or just chilling at a cafe. :) Though there is nothing wrong with chilling at a cafe, that's probably one of my favourite things to do during my free time. Haha.

Anyway, here are the pictures that we took:

 What I wore:
Top - Zara

Birthday Wish List

September is approaching real soon, which means my birthday is just around the corner! Woohoo!

I was browsing Shopbop.com the other day and saved heaps of stuff in my cart which sadly, I had to move to my 'Wish List' cause I can't afford the items just yet. (plus with the wedding at the end of the year, my pockets are pretty much empty now) They were all such beautiful pieces and I didn't want to just disregard them so I thought I'd start on my 'Wish List' again and share it in this space.

So here are the items that I'm currently lusting on, I'll only share my Top 5 here. My wish list is 2 pages long! *Whoops*

What's not to love about this gown? I swear BCBG makes the BEST dresses out there. I've tried on a few dresses in store and the cutting is just amazing! Well with this one I definitely have to alter it a little, but other than that, it's perfect! Le sigh..

Imagine my favourite heels style in rich plum velvet goodness. Hmmhmmm!

I'm starting to add more light pink hues to my wardrobe these days. I've always liked the colour pink but the idea of wearing anything in that shade puts me off completely. But this coat makes me wanna cuddle it to sleep each night. It's tres chic and in the perfect shade of pink.

At my age, if I wanna carry a back pack ( I secretly do love carrying backpacks cause of it's practicality and it allows me to shoot freely, with a DSLR of course) I gotta do it right and with this Alexander Wang piece I can do no wrong. Hehe

This DVF number was love at first sight! I love how the tail is full length and how the prints go so well together. Shopbop styled it perfectly, that's how I would wear it too IF I own this piece.

That's my Top 5 list of things I'm lusting at the moment. Which is your favourite?

Also, Shopbop.com is currently having a massive SALE (up to 70% off!!!) right now! I've already shopped and my package is on it's way. I cannot wait to receive it and share it here! Don't worry, the stuff I bought is definitely affordable :)

It's so good to be back in Melbourne. I've missed Melbourne so much, especially my lovely neighbourhood that's surrounded by Magnolia trees. They are my absolute favourite flower tree. I think this outfit and flowers of mine suit the colour tone of this tree so well. The purple and the different pink hues. There's just something so beautiful and serene about em' Magnolia flowers. I can sit and stare at them all day! I loved them so much, I took a selfie with them last year pictured here. Hehe.

Also my new favourite staple fashion item is definitely my Daniel Wellington watch. I've got so many compliments from friends whom I met recently. For more information on them, do check out my previous post. 

Ahhh so good to be back Melbourne! 
Stay tuned for more posts.
