A Simple White Shirt – Part Five

Living in Perth, Western Australia in my late teens, one day, in the public Conversation Room at the language school where I attended my English classes, I met Linda, a lady who was also from Taiwan. We clicked straight away and became very good friends. Between 37 and 18, yes, Linda and I had a […]

My OOTD Then – The Sheer Pink Satin Coat

October, it’s that time of the year again – the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you have read my post last October, you’d know what Pink Ribbon Month means to me. Therefore I have decided that I will dedicate at least the first post in every October to wearing pink, which, hopefully, raise the awareness […]

Throwback The ’90s – The Minimalist

Grunge; supermodels; the extension of ’80s power suits; the sexy school girl trend; neon colours; body piercings AND heroin chic… Really, there were lots of styles to fit into in a decade of minimalism.

You get the picture! That’s where the name of this slit […]

Throwback The ’90s – The ‘Tuck It In’ Trend

Remember what Julia Roberts was wearing as Vivian Ward in the last scene of Pretty Woman? A loose fitted white Tee underneath a black oversized blazer with shoulder pads, AND she tucked the white Tee into her high waisted jeans. Pretty Woman was a big hit in 1990 and so was Vivian Ward’s wardrobe. The […]

Throwback The ’90s – Braids; Door Knocker Earrings & Parting Your Hair Down The Middle

Yes, my ’90s series continues. At first I thought that I’d blog a series of six to eight posts about ’90s trends and styles.., well the thing is, the more I spent on my days off digging through my film negatives, the more gems I found and the longer this series has become. Who could […]
