Hey everyone!

Today's post is all about the details--I love how accessories have the ability to transform and inspire an entirely new look! Here, I decided to layer a leather chest harness under my classic pinstripe blazer to create contrast between classic tailoring and fetish wear; while still allowing for the two pieces to compliment each other through texture, line, and structure. I wanted to pare down the rest of the silhouette, and opted for a classic pair of denim skinnies and leather boots. I completed the look with this amazing vintage box-camera bag, a great pair of sunglasses, and a simple black cap.

Hey everyone!

Today's look incorporates ideas of intention and application of styling; that is, mixing casual and formal pieces to create an entirely fresh look! By showing the natural waist, the strong clean lines of the trouser are emphasized. To bring this silhouette back to a more classic casual look, I paired the trousers with a plain tee and denim jacket, as well as a simple canvas trainer.

Hey everyone,

So, the last few months have been the most surreal and busy that I have experienced in a very long time. First, (for those of you who don't follow me on Instagram) I went on a trip to San Francisco with my two best friends--probably one of the most amazing experiences in my lifetime so far. Whilst there, I managed to pick up this amazing vintage Haori from a small vendor in Japantown. Second, I went to Las Vegas for my brother's bachelor party which (to say the least) was a very different experience than San Francisco, but a fun one nonetheless. Then, one of my good friends Melody (who I haven't seen in 2 years!) came and visited from Singapore--her time here was filled with laughter, photos (thanks for the pics, Mel xx), and a lot of positive growth in our friendship. Finally, I traveled back to my hometown for his wedding, and spent time visiting with both close and distant family whom I have not seen in some time.

Ultimately, I want this look to commemorate all of the new and amazing experiences I have had so far this summer, and how they have altered my perspective--as it is a promise to myself of a better and more focused quality of life. 

I hope you all continue to follow me in my adventures, and I am glad to be back!

Hey everyone!

Today's look brings together the classic sophistication of the tan trench coat, with the effortlessly-chic. This season is all about the woven leather shoe--classic material, yet lightweight enough to be worn in the summer months (sock-less, of course). I wanted to really style this look for the warm weather, while still being able to layer to an extent. I achieved this by using a lighter wash ripped jean, and a crisp and airy collared shirt. Of course, no summer look would be complete without the perfect pair of sunglasses!

Hey everyone!

Today's look marks the second installment of my collaboration with Paul Rizk.
I wanted to base the outfit around this amazing over-sized vintage suit coat, so the I kept the layered-silhouette slim and classic. This great mandarin-collar shirt, classic skinnies, and sockless loafers helped to achieve this silhouette. It also never hurts to accessorize with a great bag!
