I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

No, I don’t have a violin or a flute or a recorder and a coin case in my bag. (A certain someone claimed that I look like a troubled musician…) I do have a cello in there, you just don’t know it because I haven’t whipped it out yet to show off my übercool cello scrubbing skills.

  1. Love that scarf + hat combo with a neutral dark outfit. Just discovered your blog & I love it.

  2. It’s such a great look! I’m loving the red hat.


  3. Love you hat! love love love it~
    Bowlar hats are the bee’s knees, so to speak.


  4. You have such a talent for styling. I love what you did with the top!

  5. Your bag is super nice! That’s why I always say bags need not to be branded~!

  6. that hat is adorable!

  7. You look so good, I love that combination of navy and red. How did you stud your boots? Do you have a tool that makes it easier to get the studs through leather? In the spring I wanted to stud my combat boots but when I realized how thick the leather is I gave up. I think I would have broke my fingers in the process!

  8. Ohhh it’s easy peasy! You just have to use a sharp scalpel (or craft knife) to make small slits for the prongs to go through! I did break my fingers folding the prongs, but putting them through was easy :P

  9. i am loving this whole look-the red hat, to the studded boots…and might i add that scarf looks sooo comfy!

  10. I’ve always love your combination of jeans and shoes. ;]

    i gotta agree with Trish that your bag’s super nice and that the bag doesn’t have to be branded. ironically, i own some and feel very unimaginative when i tote a branded bag around. what’s that sash-like thing in and out of your bag? do you play the cello, really? cos i played it in school :)

  37. I can play air-cello pretty well, in fact I’m in an air-symphony…noOoo I can’t play cello :P That thing in and out of my bag is a fail scarf that I tied around the handles ;)

  38. a troubled musician?? haha but a very chic troubled musician!!
    great color combination! that hat is so so cute! <3


  39. SHINII <3
