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.

Jeans – Filippa K. Shoes – NAK


    and city
Forget bells and whistles, go for solid essentials and a tightly-curated wardrobe. Filippa K knows what’s up.

…again, trick to pulling off the effortless is to give as little f*cks as possible. i.e read 50 Shades of Grey in the tube and then randomly let out a moan. This routine goes famously with black cashmere and blue jeans.



You remember Filippa K, longish hair, yay tall… you know, the chic from that class after lunch break. YES, HER. We’re talking about her again because my two objectives in life are a) obsessively getting rid of icons on my phone’s task bar (one crucial reason why turning on notifications on Instagram will eventually lead to earth’s implosion, or at least another eruption of Krakatoa) and 2) waking up looking like Filippa. Every day I fail at either or both, as I pour out of bed looking more like a potato than anything. Prepare the lard, kids, momma needs to go out for meetings.

I don’t have kids. Or a life, really.

So, for this second story, I quite bluntly asked Filippa K what the brand’s ABSOLUTE essentials were – the ‘5-piece wardrobe’ if you will. Figured, if my DNA won’t cooperate, I might as well pour some dough on the problem. And for the past week or so of retaining these clothing samples, I’ve successfully managed to fulfil task no. 2 (at least at a half-ish measure) by simply… going to bed fully dressed in a sorbet coat and a pair of jeans, and then waking up and letting out a feeble ‘tadaa…’.

  1. I love that these looks revolves around basics, the only downside that it’s a foil to shopping


  2. Great basics Shini! Other than Filipa’s Clara coat, I think your Reiss white pants are equally as stunning :)

  35. Hi Shini,

    Every time I come back, there is always something a little different about this space, and overtime, it never fail to take my breath away… I am so loving that little motion in your post, and of course, the actual reason why I fell in love with your blog in the first place – the humour and that terribly chic look and layout of your post and how you present your vision and ideas. It is always inspiring and entertaining at the same time!

    Loving this look! Gosh knows when I can master the effortless chic dressing like you here… I guess I would probably die trying *_^

    Feels great to be back here again! Now I need to find that Part 1 already… hope you had a great weekend, mother’s day was a simple but good one for me here, if you had asked *_^

    With love,

  36. Amazing photos, love the last look, perfect.
