Modal Soul


from t-shirt, Zara cardigan, Dzojchen drop-crotch jeans, Nike shoes 

I was so stoked when I stumbled upon this pair of jeans by Singaporean designer Dzojchen. Although the price is a bit steep for someone with a student budget like me, honestly, I don't mind splurging a bit for something that I really like a lot. I've been scouring for jeans that is of a gray color to match my inner black emo, and this piece literally has my name all over it. It features a drop-crotch I do so favour now, and while drop-crotch means extra leg room, sometimes it is not necessarily flattering. This pair of pants though, is in the perfect not-so-low crotch and has a tapered silhouette, making sure the outline of your legs are still visible and steering away from saggy butts at all costs. It is also in the perfect length for a petite like me and hangs nicely on the ankles. THESE PANTS GETS ME.

Lazy Pants


Zara top, MTWFSS Weekday wide-legged pants, I.K.Y.K jacket, Converse shoes, Blackbook tote bag

After going through last few month's archive, it looked rather obvious that I haven't been engaging in denim for a very long time. So, I have reignited my love for the blues once again, with this pair of glorious wide-legged pants. Crafted out of lyocell, they are so comfortable, so comfortable that they put all my other pants to shame. It's unfortunate that it is rather big for me on the waist, because thanks to that, it slouches down and what before was the perfect length of pants is reduced into a pair of pants that drags on the ground. I don't know if that's how it's supposed to look, but I don't really fancy that. I need to go to the tailors.

Silent Steps

Nikicio for Goods Plus turtleneck top, Zara white top & sandals, H&M pants

The turtleneck or high-neck seems to be all the rage lately due to the incoming colder seasons, so I'd like to include myself in the loop (while bluffing myself that I'm indulging the 15 degrees celcius of Fall). Keeping in mind to always avoid sweaty pits, this turtleneck top is the ultimate solution to my immediate desire of layering clothes. I adore this top for being a statement piece with its unexpected side panels, while still laying low in the classics group. I love items that serve these two purposes at the same time.
