Welcome To My Life

18th February 2014
It has been a challenging year in 2013, i’ve accepted a new job in the city and full-time work with blog doesn’t really mix well, much like blending champagne with alcoholic rum for lunch time. As work life has progressed and taken most of my optimum energy — time to me is very previous and I would seize every opportunity to keep this blog up to date.

I’ve decided to make it a little more interesting than ever by taking it to the next level. All a while it has been commercially driven by product reviews and recommendations, runway shows, backstage photographs, advance sneak peeks, buyer event’s, size guide, rare items blog about and etceteras — specialising in the brands that I still love most today, mainly Balmain and Givenchy, blogging with the most passion and love to fill in the missing contents on the net.

But for this year, i’ve thought about a new strategy unlike anything before. It needed much more than a long detailed review and a partially cropped face lookbook — some of you might like to call it ‘Personality’. All those expensive shopping without the frequent chance of expressing my true identity is a wasted opportunity that could contribute extra value to achieve greater work than ever. Therefore after a long thought, I have decided it is the time to expose my lifestyle in hope to create new inspiration one step at a time.

It’s me wearing my favorite Givenchy Rottweiler-Tartan Print Shirt with Givenchy Brown Oversize Wool Shorts and new Givenchy Palladio Chain Sandals! Pre-order or shop similar styles at Givenchy, Luisa Via Roma

The Zara Military Jacket with Toggles and Metallic Buttons

1st January 2013
One of my recent purchase during boxing day, this ZARA Military Blazer that I was looking for since quite a while ago, but have not seen one in my size. This blazer is very popular, there was never a time where it was displayed in various sizes, not even more than one piece on display occasionally. I guess maybe the ZARA retail staff has probably bought most of them before they were even displayed. Fortunately I was able to buy one that went on sale, it was the only one left hidden somewhere in store where I was the able to find it. When I tried it in store, everyone noticed me wearing it and began questioning which part of the store it was from. I made a quick checkout before anyone could have it! IT’S MINE!

Mean while, I am waiting for the real deal. My other recent purchased Balmain Military Blazer Fall Winter 2011 from a New York consignment store which took me forever to find one in my size. I am so looking forward to receive it sometime next week. =P

Balmain vs. ZARA – Imitation or Innovation?

9th June 2012
I went to ZARA Melbourne today and guess what I found on the womenswear section. They call it  the ‘Short Blazer With Pockets’ and only retails for $159 AUD. The original design is from Balmain SS2012 Satin-Trimmed Wool-Crepe Jacket that is approximately 17 times the price tag of ZARA’s version.

The menswear version from Balmain has two colours, white or black. I tried the Balmain SS2012 Satin-Trimmed Crop Tuxedo in Black during April when I was at the Ginza, Tokyo store. I absolutely love it till today and still considering whether I should get one.
