Outfit: Miu Miu sunglasses, Isabel Marant leopard print top (similar, from current collection), Zara jeans, Rick Owens leather jacket, Nicholas Kirkwood heels, Hermes Cape Cod watch, Monica Vinader bracelet and Chanel WOC (similar here).


After spending months breathing and dreaming about the Sisterhood project, I feel somewhat emotionally drained as the subject matters aren't particularly lightweight. My work isn't done yet but right now, I'd like to go off on a totally different tangent and post something frivolous and easier on the brain for a change.

It's been months since my last outfit post. This was what I wore recently to an evening out with friends. By the way, I thought I'd never EVER say this about a pair of heels but these Nicholas Kirkwoods are so beautifully made and incredibly comfortable. The unique and clever construction of the triangular heel provided superb support. I've sprained my ankles (yes, both!) more than 40 times (reoccurring sports injury) so skinny heels are out for me unless I have a death wish. Navigating the cobbled streets of London and dodging hundreds of fellow commuters whilst wearing a pair of heels has never been easier. I’m not good at swapping shoes and I rarely bring a pair of flats if I'm wearing heels either. I literally cringed when I first saw the price tag but now, I'm so pleased I bought them. Do keep an eye out for discounted Nicholas Kirkwood heels on either The Outnet or Yoox.

I go through phases where I develop a uniform and wear the same clothes to death before moving on to the next lot. Right now, it's these Rick Owens Naska jacket and Zara jeans. I'm a fervent supporter of Rick Owens leather jackets. His jackets create a beautiful hourglass silhouette. It's like a jacket and a shapewear in one. It has that rocker vibe with an added femininity flair. Speaking of sunglasses, I'm so pleased I've finally found a pair of sunglasses with nose pads. I no longer have to deal with sunglasses sliding down my nose (typical if you're Asian with a rather low nose bridge) or resting on my cheeks (pfffffffttttt).
