The Oversized Jacket

It has been such a long time since I have made a DIY, but having started studying fashion this year, my love for sewing has been revived.

source: Zara, Kayture, Haute Pursuit

I saw a pastel blue coat similar to the first image above in Zara recently and thought I'd challenge myself to make a pastel blue jacket for this season. 

Although it looks nothing like the ones above, I'm still quite happy with the result. You can check out the DIY video at the bottom of this post.

Being notoriously known for my lazy and effortless style in dressing, I have put together three simple ways I would wear the jacket.

Zimmermann Sweater | Topshop Leggings | Karen Walker Sunnies | McQ by Alexander McQueen Bag
Marc by Marc Jacobs Watch | Senso Boots | H&M Rings 

Topshop Backpack | Vita Fede Earrings | Motel Shirt Dress | Topshop Sunnies | Jeffrey Campbell Boots

McQ by Alexander McQueen Clutch | Topshop Necklace & Earrings | Zimmermann Crop Top
Zara Heels | H&M Skirt

If you're interested in making this jacket or want to check out how I made it, feel free to watch the video below which will guide you step by step.

Hope you enjoy xx

be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

(Please excuse, me pretending to read an old copy of the iconic magazine)
Decided it was about time I stopped admiring floral headbands from a distance and actually made the effort to make myself one. This is very much inspired by the headpiece Lana Del Rey wears on the cover of her single Video Games.
Spent a mere $2.99 to turn this:
into this:
Far more affordable and super easy to make. Check out my DIY video to learn how.

less is more

 Petrisa Low Back Choker dress DIY x D&G shades x Zara mustard heels 
Nothing excites me more than waking up on a spring day to such good weather and at the same time realising that summer is just around the corner !
To celebrate this amazing feeling, decided to make and share with you guys an extremely easy and quick dress that I will be hitting the beach with this summer.
Great thing is, if you use a less transparent fabric or line the fabric, this can be worn as a day or night dress as well. Why buy when you can make it yourself ?

Petrisa Asymmetrical skirt DIY x Tokito jacket x D&G shades x Marc by Marc Jacobs watch x Unknown black top x Charles and Keith handbag

Asymmetrical mini skirts are appearing all over blogs and magazines, but who would have thought they would be so easy to make ? Check out my DIY tutorial below.
When I started the youtube channel, it really wasn't my intention to only be uploading videos once a year. Definitely poor form from my end. However having picked up sewing again - after my sister presented me with the challenge of making her wedding dress, I am pumped and ready to share more ideas. Stay tuned xx

singapore sling

After months of being MIA I am finally back. Having been through so many ups and downs since the start of this year, I feel as though I am in a slightly better head space to pick up my game and restart blogging.. and hopefully start working on the goals I had long put on the back burner.

Thought I'd start with a six months later photo diary of my trip to Singapore and Malaysia. One would know life's depressing when their instagram is filled with all old travel #throwback photos, and about the only thing that gets them excited is looking at these and thinking of the possibility of being able to fly again some time soon.. So, Guilty !

Hands down an amazing trip with great experiences, great partying, great food and most importantly great company.

an amazing american experience

What a crazy month it has been. Let me begin by saying the photos above don't do the place or my trip justice at all. The beauty of the sites and amount of fun I had aren't captured well or if at all.
I took risks, and did things I would have never thought I was capable of. The time was definitely a time to remember.
Vegas lives up to it's party name and did not disappoint. The production, crowd and atmosphere is like nothing I've ever experienced... Sydney should be ashamed of itself
Montreal you have exceeded my expectations. Stepping into Old Montreal and the streets of Quebec City, I really felt as though i had stepped into Europe. The fact that everyone spoke to me in French made it even more believable. I miss having croissants every morning, saying bonjour/merci and having trouble reading your street names.
NYC, I feel in love the first time I saw you and that has never changed. Visiting you this time just made me love you even more...

America you have treated me well.
