Channeling Madonna


Jacket: Pull&Bear// Top and heels: Forever 21// Trousers: Asos// Necklace: Girls Inc.// Bag: Nessa

Yep, here I am channeling my inner Madonna for y'all. I didn't notice it until the moment I was going through my photos. I guess you could call it an homage of sorts - or maybe I just really love black, white and studs.

This would be the last time you would see this jacket, since one of the sleeve's leather has completely molded off. Now it is a haphazardly-cut vest. But it was my first real perfecto jacket, so it will be sorely missed. I wanted it to be the star, so just my usual basics to pair with it. These heels my mom bought for me when we had an impromptu shopping trip to Forever 21. I daresay they are the most perfectly shaped pumps I have ever owned, and they're comfortable - a win-win situation! Congratulations to me to wear this outfit the one day the evening turned super cold again.

Life has gone slow again after the intensity that was HK Fashion Week. It's nice to get back to normal, though I did hide under my covers in my PJs for a while to rejuvenate for a while, accompanied with chocolates and my newfound TV love, Glee. Yes, Glee. I just could not believe it took me this long to catch on to the hype. And now no one would talk with me about it, because it's old news. Sigh...does anyone out there like this show?

Let me know, and I'll see you soon,

Shanghai Tang

For the last day of Fashion Week '15, there was only one show I had planned on going to - Shanghai Tang, and boy did I make sure I would look the part between my tight bun and floral top. Unlike my previous outfits, this was a spontaneous decision, thankfully coming just in time as I was throwing clothes into my duffle bag. Yep...a leather tuxedo this time around.

Shanghai Tang did not come out as I expected it to be, which was fun, bright and has this vast array of prints and colors. Instead, it was a sombre affair, with black, white and mostly red tones. Not that there was anything wrong with the pieces per se, but I did expect a little something more. The evening wear collection was an A though, in my book. It was elegant, sparkly and had enough details like pleats and prints to be interesting.

I wish I could talk more about my last day but it really wasn't much. It was great to meet new people, see exciting designs and be part of that world again, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't just a teensy bit glad it's over, since I'm finally back home, in my couch and PJ's - which is the truest form of happiness. Boy, I am exhausted beyond belief.

So what do you think of Shanghai Tang? Let me know!

See you soon,

Maxi Moment @ I.T


Top and jacket: Forever 21// Skirt and ear cuff: Asos// Boots: Topshop

I've gotten used to calling the second day of Fashion Week 'streetstyle day', because it's the day of the always cool I.T. show, among a few others. I don't know what it is about 2015 though, but many of the shows are more somber and feature more monochromatic palettes. If you still remember the show last year (or you can find it here), it had ninjas, models decked in shiny gold and silver, oh and ski masks. This year was a lot less shiny. But it is still so street cool and I would wear any of these pieces for everyday.

For my outfit, well, going with the theme, I wore my most Alexander Wang-ish top with my red perfecto and a maxi skirt. Yep, It felt equal parts cool and yet glamorous, but that's just me. What do you think? And do you like this year's collection? Talk to me!

See you soon,
