MR. PORTER.COM Global Style Campaign – Fall Edition

 

I know it doesn’t snow in Malaysia, but I love fall fashion so much! I believe it’s the time of the year when you can wear a jacket out, but it’s not too cold either. I am completely nuts about fall fashion. Definitely I took this opportunity to post about what I would wear for fall if I experienced it.

Talk a little bit of my own personal style if you haven’t already knew. My personal style varies though. I don’t stick to a specific style but I love to try on new stuff. Some days I like simple sophisticated style, some days I just love to test the limits. I do dress in styles that suit me as well, like my image. My style may not scream loudly for attention but it’s decent and hopefully when I walk in the streets, people do notice the details I wore.

“The years go by and the time just seems to fly but the memories remain.” My tagline for this outfit of the day (because it’s cool to have one).

Mr Porter Global Style Campaign is a platform for me to showcase my style to the world and I wish to have the honour to be part of it.

I’d rather be in NYC

LookBook recently had a competition a few months back on to post your outfit that you would wear if you were to be chosen to attend New York Fashion Week. Being the fashion addict that I am, I definitely pull together some outfit and start shooting.

One of them was trying to look formal with hints of casual in it.DSC_0124

I must say I have quite a few number of jackets at home, but because of the weather in Malaysia, I couldn’t wear them on a regular basis. This Zara jacket is one of my favourite which looks bring a sense of youthful formality to it. I got this in the states and I must say it was love at first sight!

The t-shirt was from a thrift shop in Bangkok. Basically it shows how I love NYC. Never been there before, but hopefully one day I will. Thrift shopping actually is good since you can get nice items very cheap. My t-shirt cost only RM15/$5usd.

Who says holding a notebook isn’t cool? Thought it added a sense of formality and passion to the outfit. Starbucks notebook are actually well design and it’s just nice holding it.

Down in New York City

Please hype it at (link), I am competing in a competition and really wish to win.

Fashion is always my dream and what better way to explore more about it is a trip to New York for it’s fashion week? This look is inspired by New York, with a sweater showing NYC. Fall is coming, therefore sweaters are one way to travel around with, it could also be tied around the neck as an accessory.

Sweater : H&M
T-shirt is from Abercrombie and Fitch, because the flagship store is in NYC.
Jeans : Levi’s
Shoes : Zara

The sweater was one of my recent acquires, link. It was so worth it, it is comfortable and I love the design as well. Even though it is hot outside now, it is nice to wear to the movies or classes. For people whose country is starting fall soon, it can be mix and match to your everyday clothing.

Outfit of the Day – Dance All Night to the Best Song Ever

Mind my title. Was feeling the vibe of it, as well as One Direction released a new song.

Dance All Night to the Best Song Ever.

I finally had the chance to wear the shirt I bought a few days ago. It was perfect for a full day of chilling at the mall and dinner occasion with my friends. I really loved the polka dots on the shirt and the colour is so nice! Not a single regret spending money on this!

Shirt

I matched it up with a grey jeans from Levi’s. Levi’s Skinny fit jeans 511 and my Timberland shoes. I did not feel like mixing too many colours into my outfit as I want my shirt to stand out which it did very well. 

Watch

The accessories were the same as my usual, a Calvin Klein watch because I love it so much and Up by Jawbone accessory to track my daily steps which I talked about it from my earlier post.

For the shoes though, I never had much chance and items to go with it, so rather than the regular blue or black dress shoes, I chose something more striking and mature with this outfit.Shoe

Hype my look at LookBook.

Comments on what do you think of my outfit? Cheers.

Marc Jacobs Menswear Spring 2014

Menswear Spring 2014 fashion shows are happening all around the world, 4 cities to be exact. New York, Milan, Paris and London. Even though I still don’t get why it’s only Summer 2013 but designers already came out with Spring 2014 collection. No matter what, I will try to cover as many brands as possible, but most likely covering brands that I came across that I like, so you guys can have a look at some wonderful design.

Marc Jacobs stood out among some of the menswear fashion while I was scrolling through my iPad. Marc Jacobs has unveiled a lookbook for his Spring/Summer 2014 collection, exploring American heritage with a fashionable twist. A slick and glitzy feeling can be felt from the range of blazers, printed shirts and lightweight sweaters, which adopt a decidedly pastel colour palette. Meticulously cropped trousers show the perfect amount of ankle for summer, matching well with bowling-inspired casual tops.

I like the slick look with it’s pastel colour matching suit and pants.

The cardigan and sweater looks weirdly good on the models, but I am not sure whether can I pull it off.

The folding is a little bit high from what I would wear, but it’s still a nice suit.

Love this suit, it is absolutely gorgeous!

The red/maroon in this suit is lovely!

marc_jacobs_028_1366.450x675

I would say Marc Jacobs did an amazing job designing the suits with it’s pastel colour palette fitted the spring theme as well as the navy blue and maroon. It don’t look too hot to wear in spring either as like in my country, where it is hot all year long, it could be wore here as well. However some of the cutting of the clothes may be a little but hard to wear in our daily life as we don’t look so fit and good looking as the models, but we all hope to look like them when wearing it right?

Tell me what you think!

Simple.

Heading out to class or just a normal scroll at the park or even shopping and lazy to think of what to wear? I believe we all have days there a t-shirt and jeans come into our mind the minute we wake up and that is fine. Simple may not always be bad. Most days all I crave to wear is something like this, but to make it stand out, I wear my favourite sneakers which is striking.

Back to School Outfit 2

Ever want to head to class without trying to look like you dress too much, but want to feel like you made an afford on it? Colours! That’s what I do, try to find a colour of your choice that you want to wear and try mix and match. It don’t have to be overly put together, simple T-shirt and Chinos or Jeans will do.

This photo was actually posted on my LookBook awhile back, it’s simple and fits exactly right for classes, not for places that are too cold though, but the temperature here allows me to dress like this. Blue was my colour theme that day. What do you guys think about it? I wore a snapback because of my bad hair day. What are your thoughts on it?

Tip of the day: You don’t necessary need to show the whole world when you have a bad hair day, just wear a simple snapback to sort this problem out!
