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 Now – The Sheer Pink Satin Coat

My poor pink satin coat… It has travelled with me from Taipei to Sydney; Sydney to Taipei and back again to Sydney. Waited patiently in my wardrobe from the ’90s until now, and I have finally taken it to my local drycleaner, so it has been refreshed; restyled and reloved!! Well, thanks to the comeback […]

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 […]

I chose this ’90s photo of myself as an example; in which, I paired my purple door-knocker earrings with my beetroot matching shorts and top set; and I wore an indigo pendant plus a pair of purple heels. […]

Throwback The ’90s – The Carwash Pleat Dress

‘Carwash Pleat Dress’?? What a weird and unflattering name for a fashion style! Well, perhaps not so strange after all for those of us who have been to the drive-through car wash service… Remember the multi-slit-curtain hanging down to wipe over the car? Yes! 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 […]
