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.

New Balance Fall 2013 Collection – Herschel Supply Co

Herschel Supply Co and New Balance present a second capsule collection, created over a shared heritage and goal of delivering high-quality, timeless goods. The theme of it is out in the woods where I think definitely catches the attention of mine. I never been a fan of New Balance, however Herschel is quite famous among my friends, therefore it’s quite interesting to see this joint venture.

Personally I would go to a store and get these right now, however, there isn’t any Herschel outlet in Malaysia. One of the interesting thing is the Heritage NB backpack with a signature shoe pocket and custom paisley lining. Previously exclusive to the Novel duffel, the shoe pocket is ideal for storing New Balance styles separately inside the bag.

This interesting design cost $79.99. I would say it’s a little bit pricey, but if the quality is good, I would definitely invest in it. To me, shoes and bags are would the investment, because they follow you everywhere you go! What do you guys think?

China Trip’s Acquisition

If you guys followed me on my social network accounts, you will know that I went to Xiamen, China whole week of last week. Therefore I apologize of not having updates on my blog, but here I am, back from the 1 week trip.

To be honest, I was not expecting to go shopping there, since I never been to China before therefore I don’t think there was anything to buy there. I eventually find myself at Wanda Shopping Complex so might as well shop! =D

H&M SweaterSweater from H&M.
Price: 249RMB / RM120 / 40USD

I guess the price is okay for this sweater, personally I love H&M but the designs in Malaysia is quite limited as there isn’t any other seasons here. China brought in some autumn fashion and I fell in love with the sweater. Love the design a lot and it wasn’t very pricey, so I got it!

Cameo ShoeCamouflage shoes from Pull & Bear
Price: 79RMB / RM40 / 13USD

If you are not familiar with Pull & Bear, it is a Spanish brand. Since 1991, it focuses on casual, laid-back clothing and accessories for young people with a very urban style, at accessible prices. This was on a discounted section and it was so cheap! I had to get it. I always wanted something similar to this. Topman sold something like this but was about triple the price of this. I think when a branded shoe is sold so cheap, it is worth it.

Stay tune for more updates and news on fashion. Tell me what you think of the stuff I got during my trip, like it or hate it?

Tank Tops

Recently I was lucky enough to meet some Americans and Canadians by random, let’s just say one of them approach my cousin and I before we head for lunch and we brought them around Kuala Lumpur for a few times now. The point of this is that we went shopping and they said these are called tank tops. However, from where I’m from, we called this singlet. When I look it up at Topman’s website, they called it vest.

No matter it is called tank tops, singlet or vest, they are very lovable during the Summer and every time of the year in Malaysia. Since the UK is having the hottest Summer yet, and Summer is still here for a month or so, I would like to blog about it.

Tank tops are one of my favourites to wear during a hot day or when I’m on vacation. I bet it is a favourite among men during Summer. Only occasions suit wearing tank tops in my opinion are by the beach, on vacation or anywhere outdoors under the hot sun. However, not everyone likes to wear them though, mostly because the great physique you have to be in, especially on the arms.

I went scouting for some tank tops that interest me and share them here, hopefully it interest you or I could get some opinions out.

Abercrombie and Fitch

Yes, you have to have arms like that to make tank tops like this look good. These are the more tighter fitting tank tops.

Hollister

HolHol2Hol3Hol4 

Even though Hollister is brother brands with A&F, but we cannot deny sometimes plain design is interesting as well. I prefer Hollister design more though.

Topman

Topman3Topman 4TopmanTopman2

Topman has a more looser fit on its tank which I think it fits men with a wider range of body type, like skinnier men.

We cannot really compare much on it’s design wise on tanks because of the simplicity it is. However it all comes down to price of a tank and how much are you willing to pay for one. I suppose for me, I buy my tanks during sales or thrift shop for less than 5USD, because I don’t believe tanks should be expensive nor long lasting. However I do find A&F and Hollister tanks very nice and might get my hands on them.

What type of tanks would you go for? The looser or tighter ones? Let me know before the Summer ends.

Stuff I Got During the Weekend.

 

I thought it would be a good idea to share stuff I bought. It would be about what I got for how much so you guys can give in feedback, yay or nay? It could also be a good deal in town you guys can look up for.

One small reason for my lack of post last week was I went to Singapore with my family. It’s no secret of my love for Abercrombie & Fitch, so Singapore was the nearest place I could get their items since there isn’t one in Malaysia. I must say it was heaven on Earth there.

With my limited budget and the variety of items there, I manage to grab these 2 items that was shown below. A classic fit shorts and a classic checkered shirt.

To show a clearer image, I took the photos below from A&F website.

A&F Shirts

Their classic checkered shirt that is mostly worn by the models and staff there is a must-have. To be honest, it was quite expensive but I got it from the clearance rack in A&F and it cost SG $76.90 (Singaporean Dollars)! It was cheap right? Roughly 60USD. Was so happy when I spotted this, though the size is limited. I wear a M, however if you ever want to buy them, the length of the shirt is meant to be shorter though.

A&F Shorts

Next, since it’s Summer, a shorts is in the must have list. From where I’m at, Summer all year, shorts are a must as well! Cost SG $108 (Singaporean Dollar), about 85USD. Not so cheap, but it has a nice material and cutting.

These are what I got in Singapore, hope this segment would be able to share my items I got, share the happiness and get comments for it! Till next time.
