[FASHION OOTD] #1 Let's get vintage


Vintage is people being nostalgic about the time or era that they didn't grow up in. We like to turn back the hands of time and revisit the past, the era our mom grew up in, borrow from our mother's or grandmother's wardrobe and put those elements together and wear it today. We love to rediscover the forgotten trends.


And I particularly love it when the piece of clothing has a story or memory attached to it.


I have never seen myself as a fashion blogger, I mean, there are so many great fashion blogs out there! However, I totally agree that every girl should dress up because it makes you feel good and it gives you confidence! Somehow, how you dress really does make a difference in how you feel, and thus how you act. It is not about expensive clothes. It is not about vanity. What you choose to wear tells a story about you, and shows respect for those with whom you are meeting.  Don’t overlook the power of a good first impression! So today I bravely going to do my first fashion post to challenge myself with something new. They say we have to get comfortable with being outside of our comfort zone, because that's the only way we grow. Agree? :) And also to encourage all the girls to dress up and find the unique beauty in you! Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short to very tall. We are all beautiful in our own way. :)

It was an evening spent with my girls chilling in a cafe. So I picked my blue lace dress which I have wanted to wear for long and matched with my wine red bowler hat. I absolutely love this bowler hat as it is amazingly versatile I can match it with almost anything! And probably to cover my black roots too. :P This time I use my bowler hat to create a vintage look together with the lace details on my dress, oh did I say that I love laces? :) Laces add some femininity to my look today, and the short sexy dress adds a modern twist to it. And what's a vintage look without dress adorned by laces, am I right? :) Not forgetting the classic gold colour that you will find on vintage clothing, so you can notice some gold on my watch, ring and the gold chain strap on the quilted bag. Because I was doing the shooting at JWC The Factory which is actually a refurbished factory with steel wired gates and roller shutter, I pair my dress with a snake stripes necklace to create a little wild look. For shoes, I choose a modern high heels to complete the modern vintage look. You don’t have to give up your current style to enjoy vintage clothing. Many vintage items can easily blend in with your current fashion choices!

Maybe you will think that a sexy red lips would go well with my outfit but I love the soft pink lady look that the 3CE Jumbo Lip Crayon has created! It also tones down a little of my look. You can read my thoughts about this lip crayon here. :)
