With the lovely Harel and Joanna (Style Digger)

Areta’s Jill Sander-esque shopper bag from H&M

Dress - Bohoboco, Shoes – River Island, Zipper dress – H&M, Orange/Furry bag – ASOS; Matte Yellow nail polish by Inglot; Thank you Areta for the outfit shots!

I’d expected this visit home to be short and sweet, thick and firm, opaque and gooey…whatever, but today marked the third week since I arrived straight after fashion week. That opaque and gooeyness has now thinned out into texture of watery old lotion and I’m looking at still another two weeks here. Worst thing about this is that both my parents have left to Korea and the whole sense of home is a sanctuary has been perverted into home is a SOLITARY CONFINEMENT. Although it’s not exactly that I don’t have anything to do, the fact that I’m here alone fending for myself is just very foreign. AND THE BOREDOM, wow. Yesterday I put together an outfit and ended up just checking the mailbox. So this MaxMara event that Joanna invited me along came at a good time, I had just started to greet my reflection.

I personally love MaxMara – not butt-kissing (whose lucky butt?) or anything but it’s been my mum’s favourite brand and at times like this when you pack for a week’s journey and end up staying a month, you really start appreciating your mum’s taste. After, a dinner with Harel, Joanna and A helped recharge my social bar, I think I can last another three weeks with this if I do enough ‘call neighbour’ and ‘chat online’… if not, I can always try going steady with the social bunny. I promise I haven’t been playing the Sims.

In love with midi dresses this season.

  1. Love your yellow nails and ASOS clutch! Wondering what lipstick you are wearing? It look perfect on you Shini!!

  2. Ooh thank you! I’m wearing Inglot no. 860! Just a really Valentino red!

  3. You look so friggin’ elegant here! Glad you were able to get out and enjoy yourself a bit =)

  6. Haha I was so glad to find my mum’s MaxMara long coat when Camel became such a huge trend! It was perfect.
    Also, can’t believe you reminded me of the Sims, I loved building grand abodes while neglecting my ‘humans’!

    i love maxmara! too bad i dont even have a paycheck to look forward to atm ㅜㅅㅜ

    YAY you’re wearing your (was it?) size 11 bohoboco dress!
    Though probably ten sizes too big, it still looks great~

  9. Haha! I only pull out the Sims when I am intense dire need (and a week in my parents house usually does that to me)
    They invite me down for a week and then they run off to work everyday and I’m left in a big empty house on my own a 45 minute drive from the nearest shop. Its soul-destroying. No wonder I’m such a hermit (I kid, honest)!

    I almost got a similar ASOS clutch to yours, but I returned it because the clasp was really difficult to open – how’s yours?
    great pictures as always =)

  32. Shini you look beauitful and I adore the outfit! I think it’s the little splashes of colour, the yellow nails, orange purse. x

    do they have dat clutch in orange color? cant find it

  34. h&m plastic bags : heehee

  35. Shelly

    Sorry to bother in such a technical question on such a beautiful post,
    but can you tell is that clutch big enough to hold a 15″ laptop?…
    couldn’t find the measurements on ASOS :)

    You are such a talnted photographer!

  36. Yup it definitely should, just held it against my 17 inch laptop and it was exactly that size so you should have enough space both length and thickness-wise for a 15 inch!

  37. You know, I think it’s actually this one – http://goo.gl/SlXCO
    I was expecting red and then got it and it was orange… :P

  38. OOh isn’t it just a bar that slides into the metal bit? Didn’t have trouble with mine…maybe mine’s a defect :S
    xxx

  39. OOok actually it wasn’t that one, it was this http://goo.gl/p70TG and it’s sold out.
    I’d have wanted that red, the orange is so hard to match with anything…

  40. Shelly

    @Shini, Wow, thanks so much for the quick reply! :)
    you’re the best

  41. haha, yes it was lovely in London…for one day. Typical England.
    Be warned, when you do get back, i will steal that clutch from you.
