Everyday Life


This is it, my normal outfit when I was in Bangkok, Thailand

If you have followed me on Instagram, you may find that most of the photos are me wearing boots, wedges or something fancy, however, this is the reality of me wearing sandals and shorts. 

I am one of those people who love dressing up in streetstyle, but I also don't really care to wear sandals wherever I go. Being a fashion blogger doesn't mean that we have to look perfectly from top to toe right? Because we are all human-being who live and breath like everyone else. 

Sometimes, I also wear old pj to supermarket at night seriously I just can't be bothered wearing leather jacket or boyfriend denim to grocery store. I am not a lazy person but sandals make me feel so comfortable. Especially, the weather was really hot in Bangkok and jeans would burning me if I put them on. Therefore, shorts could always be my solution in the heat. 

Sorry I am still having jet lag because I just arrived UK yesterday morning. So, I will absolutely write a proper post in the next article :)

Outfit Inspired by Met Gala 2015



I really can't remember when was the last time I actually wore the dress, I mean the long proper dress for the special occasion not just a short one I wore to the fashion event. It must be so long that I can't even remember how I looked like lol. However, I have purchased Missguided's dress which I was really impressed by its snake printed, so I didn't even hesitate to add it in the basket. 

First of all, I love the fabric of this dress because it is very light-weighted and quite flow when walking. Even though I was only 5' 2" (believe it or not), I can wear this dress with the high-heel perfectly. I know I am too short but high heels make me feel more confident (in terms of height lol) because the design of the heels are very versatile in almost every situation. 

Inspired by Met Gala 2015, I would love to bring this dress back alive again, that's why I decided to wear this dress to the event, pairing with high heels by New Look and earrings by my own brand Hidden Treasure. It wouldn't be me without the hat right? So, I added H&M hat to fulfill my signature style which is more into chic and street style not a girly one. 

For some of us who wonder who Hidden Treasure is? It is my brand selling quirky and funky earrings. The website is currently processed and I am more than happy to share the products with you when everything is ready to be launched. However, you can also visit my Instagram or Hidden Treasure's Instagram for more information!

Horrible Date (Based on True Story)


I am a picky person, I am a workaholic person but I f*** up so many times about dating lol. What I am going to tell you guys is based on my personal experience that happened a while ago. All I can say is my previous relationships or dates ended up like shit, I wasted my money (a lot) and sacrificed my heart and soul to find the REAL love, however, those shitty days have strengthened me to be the tough person nowadays.  So, this is the type of guy we should avoid in order to save our hearts for the one who actually deserve.

1. The up and down

I met this guy at A Day to Remember Concert and I kinda liked him you know... He's not my type (at all) but I didn't know why I still fell for him. Maybe we had the same type of music or maybe we were just the lonely people who needed someone to talk to. 

Things went well at the beginning. We texted to each other and we went out once. It was a romantic night and I guessed we both enjoyed it. Oh well, he didn't even touch the food though lol Even though we were having a dinner at luxury Japanese restaurant located on the top of the building, he said he had already eaten so he wasn't going to eat anything except a drink lmao. I didn't expect him to pay a bill or anything but I felt a bit weird for him just to watch me as his date night eating Tempura while he was drinking a glass of water. I didn't mind paying the bill included his bottle of water, so I was willing to pay. 

I guess he didn't like wandering around the building, so he took me out and bought beers instead. We went to the shop and bought some cans of beers, then headed to the park and sat down. It was hot and humid actually...

It didn't go well afterward. I literally texted him almost every day, however, I received his texts every other day or less than that. Sometimes, he texted me so many in one day, and the next day he disappeared again! I was really confused! Well, I am a stubborn person so I kept on breaking my heart into pieces by waiting for his texts over and over again. Many of my friends told me to stop but nope honey bee not yet lmao. 

I had hope for almost a month until I couldn't wait any longer, so I stopped. 

I think it was a month or two months later when he messaged me on Facebook saying "I am so sorry about everything but I dind't mean to treat you like that. I know I am a bad guy and you are a perfect girl, so I didn't want to hurt your feelings...Is it possible if we can start again?"

(Inner thought; start again!? Go f**** yourself, you treated me like a doormat so no thank you kiddo.) 

However, I texted him with the emoji like " :) " that's it and no more conversation after that. 

It was one of the shittiest date I have ever had in my entire life and he's like grrrrrrr I have no words to describe how hot and cold he was lmao. Oh well, it was an experience which taught me a lot about this TYPE of guy I wish I will never ever gonna meet again in the future. 


Outfit -> I paired this camo jacket gifted from the vintage shop, House of Bricks who kindly sent me the pair of uber cool sunglasses and little note which is so lovely. I love reading the notes or postcards sent from brands since it is such a good feeling to read the handwriting, not from electronic device. I matched this jacket with my USA cropped top purchased from Bangkok, Thailand and the pants I bought from Primark. If the weather was good, I would more than happy to wear the camo jacket with shorts and boots because I love wearing shorts with over-sized tops/jackets! 

The products provided by House of Bricks are also lovely as well, there are so many colourful pieces I love, as well as, the vintage jackets I would love to pair with my sneakers :)

That Item for Summer


"No doubt why I love Asia. The sun does exist"

The Summer in Bangkok, Thailand is very hot..actually insanely hot, however, it is such a good weather to do a photo shoot. In Thailand, we only have three seasons; summer, rainy and winter, but personally I only feel those three seasons are hot, very hot and insanely hot! And I think that it is the reason why there are a lot of tourists visiting Thailand more and more due to the weather which different from their home countries. I truly appreciate about this trip back home because somehow United Kingdom is way too cold and windy for me. Besides, doing an outdoor photo shoot in Bangkok is just like a heaven when not many security guards care about what I am doing, compared to some of the places in UK where the guards approach and ask me to get the permission or pay $$$...I understand that it is the private property but really!?.......I think it is crazy. 

Yesterday, The Equinox Fashion had such a great opportunity to attend DvF Fall 2015 collection presented by Dianne and her amazing team at Emquatier, located in a heart of Bangkok. However, I am going to talk about the show and my experience meeting Dianne in the later posts since I would love to show my favourite piece or "that item for Summer" which I can't live without. 

In this season, I can't deny that I am falling in love with my kimono pants or known as culottes that are so on trend at the moment. Actually, I published a post last year talking about how I styled the culottes, though this is another #ootd I mixed and matched the pants with different clothing items worth to style in this heat. Apart from the skinny jeans, I quite like wearing culottes because they are very comfy, especially when I paired them with these high heels purchased from New Look, and the long vest gifted from Warehouse PR team. 

Like I said, the weather yesterday was really really hot (also today..maybe everyday lol) So, I had to buy an orange juice called Orangina from The Coffee World, Siam Paragon to keep myself from dehydration. Remember guys, you need to keep drinking and drinking if you are in a hot country because chances are you might faint or black out easily.
