I’m back at it again with a different type of fashion post. Is it bad that I still reference the ‘Damn Daniel’ vines? It probably is. Though I can’t promise that it’ll be the last you’ll hear of it from me.
For months now, I’ve been trying to switch out my wardrobe and wear outfits that are more mature and sophisticated. My aim this year was to look chic and put together. Unfortunately, I failed miserably because I couldn’t get away from sites like ‘Lazy Oaf’ or ‘Stupkid’ that has insane clothing that speaks to my soul.
I am in love with the patch trend and feel the overwhelming need to add iron-on patches to everything I own. Of course, this is far from the initial look I was going for. Lazy Oaf was a brand that I’ve been pining for. However, their prices are slightly insane in my opinion and they are a UK based brand. Hence, it’s really difficult to try and shop their products. Most of them will have to be blind buys, in terms of sizing.
Enter Stupkid, an Indonesian brand that has made its way to Singapore shores. Their clothing line is quirky and fun, but great quality. Their collection is sold at Orchard 313, but they also have an online store. It’s for people who are loud and don’t take fashion so seriously.
Needless to say I love their stuff.
So far my favourite purchase is this oversized baseball jersey jacket that looks like it came from outer space. I decided to pair it with other crazy things that I don’t really wear in Singapore, for fear of people staring at me. Such as, my awesome hat that I got at the Jewish quarter in Paris. It reminds me of James Bay. So much so that whenever I put it on, “Let It Go” is absolutely stuck in my head all day.
Also I threw on a homemade choker, because why not.
The makeup look I went with is a purple shadow. You can’t really tell in these shots but I went all out.
Here is the breakdown of the makeup worn.
Base : Givenchy Eclat Matissime foundation, Make Up Forever Step 1 hydrating primer, Nars Laguna bronzer
Eyes : Max Factor Excess Shimmer in ‘Pink Opal’, Bare Minerals Ready eyeshadow quad in ‘Happy Place’, KIKO eyeliner in ‘Dark Tide’, Maybelline One by One mascara, ELF Instant Lift Brow pencil in ‘Neutral Brown’, ELF clear brow mascara
Lips : Mac Velvet Teddy
Top : Stupkid Space Baseball Shirt, basis white tee
Bottoms : Abercrombie & Fitch black leggings
Shoes : Converse all black high tops
Accessories : Black fedora & handmade velvet choker
Not the most practical thing to wear. But it was nice, pulling out stuff in my wardrobe that I thought were bit over the top for everyday and wearing them out. We all have that piece of clothing that we bought cos we thought was cool and then rarely wear for one reason or another.
I say, screw what other people think. And do what makes you happy.
