Today's look features everything fast fashion and mass production. Although I've learnt the ugly truth about how it works, I was one of those cheapskates who really enjoys spending less for more. It is understandable because as a collage student, I mostly rely on my allowance. The money I earn from a part time job in Singapore can barely feed my fashion thirst. But I really like supporting underground labels as long as the quality tallies with the price. I've been wearing a lot of black these days but I think I'm going to go darker than that, or at least, more unique. My currently style is still very street and Harajuku influenced but I really want to take it up a notch.

Went to Natsu Matsuri aka Summer Festival at The Japanese School today. At first I was questioning my presence because we spent most of the time queueing for tickets, food and drinks. But still I had my fair share of fun with my friends. We managed to play a game called yo-yo fishing. Basically you'd have use a hook with a string made out of tissue paper and hook the rubber bands on the balloon water balls out of the mini pool. You can hook as much as you want but until the tissue string snaps.
It was definitely a mistake to grab a beer empty-stomached because I nearly fainted. It was that 5 seconds of near-black-out experience before I dropped to the ground. Nicole and her friend Inez were freaking out because they thought something horrible happened. However sitting down and stoning on the ground for like 3 minutes made me feel better. But the moment I stood up, *sees stars*. Went to have KFC afterwards because I needed that fill but couldn't finish my food :(

Casual low quality outfit post. I really gotta make myself bring my DSLR wherever I go now but my everyday load for school is just to unbearable!
I really love my YHF dress, it's so lightweight and not a lot of dresses come with good lining. But for me the best part was the hidden pockets. I feel like it's an easy way to look casual and chic anytime with your hands tucked in your pockets. Of course, not forgetting to show some love to my new shoes, I have to admit that these pair stung my ankle area badly on first wear (you can see it from the amount of plasters on my foot). These shoes were meant to wear with pretty socks! Thanks shopbop!

Extremely exhausted after a whole day of hands-on-legs-on work today. Went to the explore Little India (which has been explored various times as a Lasalle student). I still have some sewing to finish up but that will have to wait till I wake up from my power nap later.
Yesterday a blogger came to our school to have a talk about... blogging? I don't know. He said it's not a tutorial on how to be a blogger but he gave step by step pointers on how to become a blogger. Hmm? He did asks us if we think Singapore is a fashion capital, it's a very obvious no. Maybe I'll talk about this in my next post because this girl needs to go.
