Shine Bright

This is the second edition of a three-part collaboration with Jodie’s Touch of Style and Sheela Writes. The idea was to showcase various ways of dressing with the print, camo. Also, though unintentional, it is a collaboration amongst mothers and daughters ❤️

The second of the series is to dress in camo with a color. The finale, which shall be posted this Friday, will display the well-known print with a different surprise element.

Yes, looking good takes a lot of work. Even to the point of sweating. No shame.

Here are my Bloggin’ Sistas in their Camo + Pastel outfits:

image
Love the way Jodie styled her outfit. Especially the fact that she changed her glasses too.
image
Nancy looks so chic. I can’t handle it.
image
Charlotte’s belt gives her sweet look a touch of badassery.
image
Love how my momma paired her camo with the pastel pink pants and embroidered cardigan. It’s also cool how her pictures look like old photographs that came out of a time capsule. #authentic
image
The only pastel items I own are my shoes and my choker. And yes, I’m still fixing my hair.

Check back on Wednesday to see what we pair our camo items with next!

Wild Child

My mother, Sheela Writes, and I were approached by a new perfume company called Pinrose to review their latest products.

Wild Child and Gilded Fox.

If you’re more into a sultry and minty-ish scent, check out Sheela Writes to see her review of the Gilded Fox.

Take the Pinrose Personality Quiz to find out which scents suit you best!

Perfume from Pinrose.

I was initially unsure, though nonetheless flattered, when approached with the offer since it recquired two things:

  1. Try out the perfume (even though I almost never use them)
  2. Write a review (which I’ve only ever done once)

Luckily I actually like the scent. It’s sweet and floral and perfect for a girls night out.

Don’t move or I’ll spray!

What I love about Pinrose is the work they put into making their brand go above and beyond in terms of uniqueness.

When you click on a specific product, a Pinterest mood board and a soundtrack on 8tracks Radio are provided give off the vibe of the scent. It even gives you scent notes for the top, mid, and base of the perfume. How cool is that?

Also, I appreciate that the bottle is manageable. Perfume bottles are normally huge and/or complicatedly shaped. And kudos to the bottle designers for concocting such pretty displays!

If you are somone who leans toward a more feminine and girly scent, then you should definitely try out Wild Child!

Other perfumes you might like are Cuddle Pink, Pillowtalk Poet, and Tambourine Dreamer.

Project Sister Act: Bared Shoulders

Project Sister Act, originated by Sheela Writes, is a collaboration amongst bloggers to prove that style is ageless.

For June, the theme chosen is called Bared Shoulders.

My own personal Diagon Alley.

I have to say, when I first saw this place, the first thing that popped into my head was Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley.

Initially sketchy, but turns out to be cool.

And normally I don’t wear long dresses because I could either trip or get it caught onto something.

But this dress is the exception.

It’s so freakin’ comfy.

And swishable.

I felt like a folkloric dancer twirling about.

And I must say that my hair looks really good! Which is strange considering that it was hot as hell that day AND I was sweating profusely.

Mini Interview of Sheela Writes

Throughout the majority of my life you’ve only worn black. It was only until recently that you’ve started experimenting with other aspects of fashion, e.g., prints, color, cuts. What motivated you to begin going outside of your comfort zone and how hard has it been to try new things?

I felt a little bored with wearing just black, and that’s the Gospel truth. I felt the need to add a few touches of rainbow to my life and, in the beginning, it was so incredibly difficult. I couldn’t think outside of black and white, and stripes aside, patterns didn’t even exist in my world, let alone have a place in my wardrobe. But with each different outfit, it got easier. Playing the color and print game became fun. And you know what’s ironic? I now find it equally challenging to put together something all black. Isn’t that ridiculous?

You’re known for your unique and unapologetic style. How has it impacted your blogging opportunities? Does it ever feel intimidating to be such an anomaly, or is it empowering?

A bit of both, I suppose. In the beginning, it was pure frustration, I confess. I struggled with myself, with wanting to stay true to me while wanting what mainstream bloggers had. After a while, I stopped caring about being an anomaly, I made up my mind that I was ok with being different. And things started falling into place. I know it’s cliched but it’s very true. Once you start accepting yourself, the world follows suit. These days, brands rich out to me for that very reason. They know they can rely on me to present their products in a manner that’s not predictable, and that’s exhilarating.

Who are your style icons and how do they influence your fashion choices?

Gwen Stefani. Hands down. There’s a reason why I own so many pairs from her GX Shoe line, and clothes from her L.A.M.B. brand GRIN she is, to me, the epitome of a kickass working mother who switches easily from edgy rock n roll star to chic professional, and so much more. Another person I admire greatly for her deft hand in mixing couture with high street and vintage is Jane Aldridge from Sea Of Shoes. What a maestro.

Black and white is one of the most known, timeless color combinations in fashion history. Why do you think it’s so popular?

It’s just as you said. Black and White together is timeless. It can create so many different moods, from graphic to classic and everything in between.

Use three adjectives to describe your style.

I think you described it quite perfectly – unapologetic. Unexpected. And, I’d like to think, whimsical.

Mini Interview with Sheela Writes

You grew up wearing pink frou frou dresses and now here you are, all about the statement tees and black outfits. How do you think that change happened?

I started experimenting with graphic tees and dark colors after watching the movie Bandslam. One of the main characters, Sa5m (the 5 is silent), was a snarky teenager that always wore black and listened to heavy metal and reggae music. I was 10 when I saw the film and I thought she was the coolest thing on the planet. Up until that point, I had never met nor seen anyone like her and I wanted to replicate her outfits. But by the time I started 8th grade, I began to take inspiration from Sa5m rather than become exactly like her.

Do you personally wear so much black as an act of rebellion?

While I do try to experiment with different colors, black will always be my bestie. I wouldn’t say that it is an act of rebellion, but rather just something that I’m more comfortable with.

Why, in your opinion, is black the go-to colour for women across all generations?

Black is popular because it compliments every type of skin color and body type. Plus, it’s an incredibly versatile color.

Use 3 adjectives to describe your opinion of a B&W outfit.

Marvelous. Timeless. Cool.

Who are your style icons and why?

Zendaya is definitely one of my style icons. She’s incredibly versatile, ranging from jogger pants with kickass sneakers to gorgeous dresses to die for. She comes up with the coolest ideas and struts her stuff unapologetically. Selena Gomez is awesome too. I love her chic casual looks and often try to replicate them.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this collaboration!

Dressed in B&W

Black and white. Can’t live without them.

This is the first edition of a three-part collaboration with Jodie’s Touch of Style and Sheela Writes. The idea was to showcase various ways of dressing in black and white. Also, though unintentional, it is a collaboration amongst mothers and daughters ❤️

The first of the series is to dress solely in black and white. The rest will show the well-known color combination with an added surprise element, which shall be posted next week.

Animal Instinct

Animal print is this month’s Project Sister Act theme.

Project Sister Act was created by my mother, Sheela Goh, to prove that style has no age limit as various bloggers of different ages interpret a style in their own way.

The most exercise I did that day.

Thank God the plcae was vacant and that there was zero wind.

Otherwise we’d have a lot of traumatized people.

Especially me.

You have no idea how scared I was when Sofia, our photographer, told me to stand between the elevator doors.

I thought I was going to be squished to death.

She laughed at me…

That concludes May’s Project Sister Act.

I know I barely wrote anything and that this post is not very inspiring. My brain’s been fried from all the tests I’ve had to take these past few weeks. But I’ll try to do better next week.

Shout out to the other bloggers that participated! This month’s outfits are by far my favorite in the entire Project Sister Act history.

Can’t wait for next month 🙂

‘Cause I’m Rich

It’s that time of the month, guys.

Project Sister Act time.

“She take my money when I’m in need. Oh she’s a gold digger way over town.”

For those of you who don’t know, Project Sister Act is a collaboration between bloggers of different ages that dress based off of a theme.

This month’s is Gold Digger (actually it’s just Gold but Gold Digger sounds fancy).

Shades are Prada. Dress from Kissue.
Passing through life like a boss.

Once again, the lovely Sofia made me do some form of jumping and leaping and all that stuff. I had to do it three times.

THREE.

I was actually sweating (I know, pathetic).

We had to stop after the third try though. A police officer saw us and said I couldn’t jump off of that ledge thingy.

I felt like such a rebel.

Shout out to Sofia Emm for the photos and my girl Ashpower for sharing the song “Rich” by K. Michelle with me. That song can make anyone feel like a boss.

🎧 I got rich people problems
Only way to solve ’em
Keep on gettin’ rich
Richer and richer I need every single dollar🎧

Until next time!
