In all black with a hint of bloody red makes me seem like a walking Bubonic Plague; or at least that’s how I’ve been feeling these past few days. Sickness has struck me and I think it’s trying to tell me that I should be better prepared in keeping myself warm now that winter has come. A trip to Winners this weekend and voilà, a wool scarf and leather gloves that cost me less than $30. If there’s anything I like about winter, it’s that I get to wear leather, wool and suede.

A plus tard et avec l’amour!
Growing up, my mom would dress my sisters and I in matching outfits but as cute as that was, we inevitably grew up and developed our own sense of styles.
My style can be best described as sophisticated with an edge. I like pieces that have plenty of character but in its materials durable and retains hints of elegance. It is of utmost importance for me to keep everything balanced. I like to mix prints and textures with basics, incorporate both light and dark colours and be watchful of lengths. In this outfit, I particularly focused on maintaining balance in skin exposure. Personally, I do not like to wear tank top with shorts but instead, with jeans. My style secret: I like to buy sale and vintage!

2. Second Sister
My second sister has an affinity for wearing dark colours with tints of red, military boots and generally, comfortable attire. She is best described as edgy and is inspired by menswear. Her casual attires are usually oversized and laid-back but when it comes to more formal occasions, she can be seen rocking body-con dresses and high heels. Her style secret: Black works with everything! 1) T-Shirt: Rihanna line from Hard Rock NY | 2) Jeans: Guess 3) Cross-body bag: Kate Spade | 4) Rings: ALDO | 5) Watch: Skagen Denmark | 6) Aviators: Ray Ban | 7) Boots: Enzo Angiolini for Nine West
3. Eldest Sister
My eldest sister’s style can be best described as classic, yet on trend. She likes to wear pieces that are timeless and comfortable, mainly neutral in colours and simple silhouettes. She can make Converses and tees look chic by adding expensive details. Because of her petite frame, she is able to snatch up cute pieces from the junior’s department, one of her biggest style secrets! Fun fact: She takes the photographs for my blog! 1) Patterned Dress: GAP | 2) Jumper: ZARA Kids (similar here) | 3) Sneakers: Converse | 4) Cross-body bag: BCBG Max Azria | 5) Watch: Burberry
