Getting Ready for ‘Touch of Red’ Campari party

Jacket – Horace, Tee – Alexander Wang (2 years ago in a crazy sale!), Trousers – MM6, Shoes – Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony, Clutch – JHYoo, Necklaces – Arielle de Pinto & KD2024, Bracelet  - COS

For an inherent night owl I do have a painfully day wardrobe… Guess I’m the kind of owl that rearranges all the rats and bunnies by size and colour in my little hole in the willow tree, and writes a blog, instead of going out to dance with the bats. I guess it’s also not really surprising that I packed a Uniqlo men’s plaid shirt to wear as a skirt for the Campari party in Milan – that’s the extent of my creativity, second to wearing the right shoe on the left foot and vice versa. So arty farty… ridiculous, right?

So I got some help from WOK boutique in Milan, introduced to me by Farfetch, for a look a little more presentable. It’s not the usual frock-the-size-of-a-handkerchief look but if you look closer the OC boots do tease with ‘stripper-boots’ platforms so I guess that made it all appropriate for the evening. One thing I didn’t realise, is that Farfetch is not really one huge e-retailer like I thought all along, but actually a hotpot of  quirky small backstreet boutiques all around the world… talk about accessibility!

  1. I love the skinny-creased leather jacket on you, works really well with the cream wide leg trousers, good job that WOK helped you out with the wardrobe crisis. x

  5. I can just imagine you cooped up in your Willow hole with rows and rows of your treasures. So cute. I like the story you’re telling here with the photos, too. And the outfit, of course. Wooden heels + palisade trousers + leather + gold watch = one well dressed little owl.

  17. I’m curious: how do you like the UD Cannonball mascara?

    Reply

    replied:

    Hmmm definitely waterproof as the label says – I always cry while I cycle because taxi drivers are mean, I mean no, the wind makes me cry, so I always had problems with black line streaming down but ever since I started using UD that’s never happened. How it’s ON, I like how it’s not thick, just elongates the lashes real long! x

  24. I like the photography for this post. They look like cinematic stills rather than photographs. I also like stripper height platforms. I tend to wear them to everything, even when it’s not totally appropriate, much to my mother’s dismay.

  27. There you go again, Shini, slam dunking it. Seriously, why do the rest of us bother getting dressed? Sycophantic jokes aside, I love dressing with a theme of mind so it tickled me to see your “touches of red” in your outfit :)
