Orange thing: Things that look like….

Coat – Obakki, Shirt + Trousers + Socks – Uniqlo for Uniqlooks, Shoes – Zara, Bag – Storets.com, Watch – Casio (via ASOS)

Significant Other: (Looking over my shoulder) You look so Asian.

Me: I am Asian.

Significant Other: No, I mean how you can hardly see your eyeballs in all these pics. And you look like the guy from Mulan in that orange pic…

Me: Screw you.

You wouldn’t believe how windy it was today! It may look as though I have a few static balls rolling around in my pocket but no, I believe if I had any kind of balls I wouldn’t have troubles telling the waiter he brought the wrong order. Or wouldn’t have to pretend I’m blind when passing a neighbour in the corridor to avoid saying hello. I’M JUST SHY OKAY. This is a rather belated first instalment of this month’s Uniqlooks, and yes, their clothes alone do make me happy and grinny and all, but the truth was that as the wind was thrashing and whipping my hair around I kept thinking how funny it’d look if I tried eating a sticky toffee icecream during this all and I couldn’t stop guffawing like a moron.

Thank you Kit for the outfit shots!

  10. couldn’t help giggling at the mulan comment, if it makes you feel any better I had a crush on the guy in mulan (the one shes inlove with) when i was little, also I believed that I was mulan when I was younger, so that may have something to do with it. You look wondeful by the way!

  20. Love both styles! great idea!

  21. Amazing shoes. they look great with socks and chinos :D

  22. These photos are so owsooommmm (as you say ;) heehee) The orange one so so beautiful and eye catching!

  27. You look like such a babe in that first photo. Like proper beautiful model style… luckily, the photo in the orange va-jay-jay next to it brings you back down to earth. Muahhahhaa. JK. You’re a hottie.

    Anyyyway, was totally expecting that denim shirt to be from some super expensive freak-tastic-funky shop… not Uniqlo. I want one. It’s super cool.

    Lovely photos! Hope the wind has died down! xx

  28. Love, love, love this look. Casual chic at its best!

    Take care,

  33. Too funny! Reminds me of the time FriendBoy told me I looked like an African Lifesaver. He got a “screw you”, too.

  34. LOL. I wonder why he didn’t just say Mulan and that you looked like General Shang. Oh I know the characters!! hahaha…

    Those are fantastic shoes btw!! Love!

  35. great shirt!

  37. Dear Shini,

    I get super excited when I see your posts on my feedburner. Your sense of style is impeccable and classic, and you have a great sense of humor.

    I think I’ve commented a few times before, but I just wanted to make this sound like a fancy letter.

  38. Gotta admit, I love all the ‘Significant Other’ convos! Hahaha. I also just learned the other day that Donny Osmond was the singing voice for that dude in Mulan. So bizarre. :B

  46. Muah hilarious conversation snippet! I love Mulan, great movie. I always thought that guy was kind of hot so it could be worse, right? Oh and yes I’m aware he’s a cartoon….

  47. no! :D
    you are the most minimalistic, unconventional and creative blogger all over the world!
    And, you know, I love you too :D

  48. Shini this has just inspired me to sew small buttons onto the sides of my denim shirt! It’s so clever!

    PS: Tell your Significant Other to stop badmouthing you. Haha.

  49. Haha, your little transcript made me laugh. I vvvery much like that shirt!

    I love the blog, you have amazing style and taste. Only…have you lost weight? There’s no trouble with getting fit ,or feeling better, and I don’t want to be some stranger passing judgment, but you’ve always been beautiful and I just want to say that, and that you shouldn’t let the pressure get to you. Stay healthy!

  51. I like so much outfits like this, light and airy:)

  52. I get the Mulan comment often myself! Love the versatility of the shirt, never see that in denim.

  58. I wanted to say : LOVE the shirt .. not move .. shame on me

  59. I was about to type ‘i’ve had wind problems too’ but that sounded wrong. Hmmm I seem to have posted this anyway. hahah I meant in relation to outfit shots!

    You look lovely btw. :)

  60. I love that shirt!
    I’m going to get it as soon as I can, If you don’t mind!
    ^-^

  61. Looking amazing and loving the two-way nature of that Uniqlo shirt!

  62. Meee? Lost weighht? I wish! I’ve had the same weight since I was 17 ;) I think it might be the way I’m snapped or how the clothes fall… could also be that the babyfat on my face has now immigrated to my behind… I’m healthy, thank you for the concern though! xx

  63. high five with the screw yous!

  64. asian is unique…
    You look gorgeous :-)

  65. [...] that makes me all kinds of envious. every time she posts something new i’m bound to say oh! those shoes or oh! that skirt etc. so i simply had to share her latest post how to wear stuff & turn you [...]

  66. Eeek! I’ve been after those boots for ages!! Anyone have any idea where I can find a pair?????

  67. That’s from Zara, but I saw Topshop doing a lot of great block heel everyday shoes this season, like these? http://goo.gl/M5WKa or http://goo.gl/QzZ8x

  68. you look like asian. i get that a lot from my friends haha
