5 Piece French Wardrobe . Update 02

.03 Highwaisted Jeans

Frantically abused this sexy mother since early September. Had one final slot to fit as we were 6 months into the challenge. Can't go wrong with a pair of classic deep blue jeans am I right? Disposed my previous pair from Pull n Bear that has totally lost its shape that was well ready for retirement. Found a successor :)

.04 Nude Sandals

. Nine West sandals .

Another wardrobe essential that has been lacking in my collection. How bitchy-pants is it to say 'collection' when our intention is to purge life. Lmao. Spent quite a bit of money on these babes but they got scuffed after a few wear and the heel part got so screwed up. Wouldn't recommend buying these if you are planning to spend some cash on this particular pair from Nine West. Walking in stilettos have always been my forte but not anymore. Anything under 4-inch and comfortable is indeed hard to come by.

[Fabulous option under RM100. Use 'ZBAPQLL' for extra 15% off]

.05 Navy A Line Skirt

. Nichii skirt . [similar]

Probably bashing the beauty of my favourite skirt. How does one take outfits shots with a camera stand without looking awkward and pretentious? Do share. Clean and classic silhouette in this gorgeous royal blue shade which I somehow call NAVY. Pretty sure I haven't stopped wearing it since getting it in June. Crease-free and looks great with almost everything.

Just in case you're wondering, here goes part 1 of '5 Piece French Wardrobe Challenge'. Proud to say that 5PFWC has changed the way I live. In terms of how I allocate funds for shopping, how I organize my wardrobe, the way I style existing pieces and most importantly how I'm more conscious of consumerism and fast fashion as a whole. Considering picking up the challenge once more for the year 2017. In the meanwhile, nerd is taking a short break off the challenge due to upcoming festivities whoohaass. 

Have you started doing Chinese New Year shopping? x

White Out


"Not sure where to look at. The camera or the hot guy behind the camera. Decisions."

We got an award for being the most under-dressed person in Universal Studio Japan (USJ). Thank goodness we decided to be matchy matchy with white tops, jeans and a wobbly half knot. Yup I changed my hairstyle eventually because when you see other people dressed up as mustard sauce and sailormoon, girl you better buck up!! Atmosphere at USJ was surreal. As a USJ virgin, I did not expect to see walking radish and Spiderman queuing up for caramel popcorn. 

To combat the heat, I opted for a white cotton T tucked into some high-waisted jeans and a choker which somehow decided to disappear in pictures. The scorching sun and rising temperature melted our face we lost our identity by the end of the dayI'd tell my readers to wear something sleeveless and breezy but by looking at how my friend burned her shoulders and how I got 2 shades tanner, girl, you do you. 

Just curious, what would you wear to a theme park? x

Basically Basic

"A biker jacket brings out the cool side of a woman without having to own a Harley"

I have been on the hunt for a pair of strappy flats which is versatile enough to bring an outfit from lunch dates to office meetings. Comfy enough to run the world yet stylish enough to grab attention. This cost ¥800 and I wear size XL. We were actually shocked by how shoe sizing goes from S to XL. Is this normal in Japan or is it just GU??

Before I start rambling on how beautiful Hozenji Yokocho was, I wanna thank my supportive (and gorgeous!!) bestie who took all of my outfit pictures with patience and love. Without her I'd be struggling with stacked up rocks and arranging trash cans.

Temperature dropped to 18°C just past mid-afternoon and the air started to get chilly. Went back to basics with a T, highwaisted jeans and faux leaather biker jacket. Finished off the look with a gold choker and some sassy flats. Both the gold choker and flats are from GU, a popular fast fashion brand in Japan. We aren't advocates of fast fashion by all means but this pair of faux leather flats was love at first sight.
