Improperly Proper

On days I remember that I’m a girl, I put on a few coats of mascara and tint on my lips. Proper with a button down, but remaining edgy with the unexpected excess of stripes.


Stripes on stripes, if done right, is an interesting and chic trend. A mixture of horizontal & vertical stripes is key, as well as the differences between the size. Do not pair stripes of the same size, otherwise it will become one, hot mess! Remember to also keep the rest of the outfit basic and plain.

Monochromatic and Bloody

Five hours of insufficient sleep later, with lingering feelings from Phantom of the Opera the night prior, one can only dress in monochrome and bloody tints.


Everyone wakes up one morning knowing that it will be a t-shirt and jeans kind of day. Well, today was my day. It’s a surprise that I even managed to get out of bed.

With scenes from Phantom of the Opera still fresh in my mind, I may well continue sorrowing at its dramatic plot with this black V-neck paired with my striped skinnies. Not wanting to look any duller with my already sunken eyes, a much needed call for colour brought bloody tints of red to my lips and feet. Since the stripes on my jeans are thin and narrow, it does not clash with my shoes but instead, attracts interest to the play in patterns.

To indicate caution for today’s highly irritable nature, it was appropriate that I wear my bullet necklace.
