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 changeā€”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.

Outfit 1: Sweater – mum’s Molton, Polo – Courtesy of Uniqlo, Pants – Gmarket, Shoes – New Look, Sunglasses – Urban Outfitters, Bag – Lithuania market; Outfit 2: Polo – Courtesy of Uniqlo, Pants – Zara, Gold T-bars – Topshop, Clutch – mum’s vintage

The fact that this polo shirt is the brightest of blue (and the fact that my forehead is basically a lightbulb) does not help the fact that this balcony faces a wall of cars waiting at the lights on the main road outside my house. For innate self-defence’s sake I guess the body pulled the I need to pee pose in order to make the outdoor cinema crowd to assume that I’m just standing on my balcony in front of a tripod because I truly do have to pee. In two different outfits.

This second polo of Uniqlooks was quite the challenge, which is worrying in itself because a few years ago I remember insisting on only wearing polo shirts. What does that say about my highschool fashion sense? I guess it doesn’t say much, other than douchebag.

  14. Oh my god Shini. I’m LOVING the block colour on you. Loving the shots of you in the jumper too where the bright blue collar kinda jumps out at you!

  15. these outfits are perfect on you.. btw love your hair, wish i could do mine in a proper braid..


  16. LOL my high school uniform was Lacoste polos in various colors…so I was a dbag too! I now am stuck with soo many of them…it’s always a lesson to me now that I try to remember not to overinvest in multiples of items, even if I really am convinced that I’ll love them forever.

  17. I like how you’ve taken one shirt and created two very different outfits.

  18. Really like those sunglasses. I’ve been looking for a pair like those for a while now, but most sunglasses just do not fit my Asian face…is it bc my face is too big or is it because something is wrong with the glasses developers!? Who knows.

  19. brilliant colour combinations


  20. Really love the colours of the second outfit.
    Ha, I was living in polos in high school too :) Blue, yellow, red, green.

    E x

  23. You are NOT a DOUCHEBAG. Lol!!!! What the fudge does that make me?? I love polos ;P

  24. Your sunglasses are so cool, wait YOU’RE so cool 8)
    Haha, I miss you! When are you coming back from the kidnapping lands? xx

  25. I don’t know but your style just gets better and better. The first outfit is something I can only hope to emulate someday, you look incredible. Perfect. I don’t think I could ever get away with the color white, maybe I have to get paler.. lol :p

    + I’ve never thought of wearing Polos under a sweater, and I really love the look of shirt collars popping when pairing them with sweaters. Maybe I’ll try this someday!


  26. I like the preppy colors mixed with metallic shoes. Shini–i’m semi new to your blog. Did you grow up in the UK? I love the pics but the writings are my fave.

  27. Shini – genius layering! At first I thought that bit of blue was a detachable collar!

  28. Love those green pants! Your use of color is inspiring.

  29. Lately I’ve been drawn to that exact shade of blue a lot. It makes nearly every outfit better!
