Fashion Outfits


I wanted to do something with styling I haven’t done before…

and here is the result.


I consider myself rather adventurous when it comes to my personal style. I’m willing to pursue any trends. I’m open to all sorts of style and happy to take on any of them providing I’m allowed the freedom to interpret it with an Oliver sort of twist (that pun tho…) so this outfit is a great reflection of what I strive to achieve with Suede & Symphony.

DSC_0279 DSC_0267In a way, my blog has essentially been one herculean experiment that I’ve commited my life to. I put as much time and efforts as I can into planning and producing each post. Initially, I would test the waters by observing and imitating various other bloggers, but now that I’ve gathered a solid blogging foundation, I feel it’s about time I established a style of my own.




To truly engage with my readers on a personal level, I aim for my every post to be a different experience for them so in my last few outfit posts, I retracted the bambling on clothes, instead I decided to discuss topics that were more sensitive and closer to my heart.

If you’ve been following me on LookBook closely enough, you would’ve noticed too that I started toying with the template of my postings. After over half a year of finding my feet in the vast blogosphere, I finally felt comfortable and confident enough to really get creative. I guess you could say this is me preparing myself to say goodbye to my regular posts as I aim to make every one of my article more distinctive than the last…



The biggest experiment I’m currently conducting is the first vlog entry – yes, you guys are about to see me in motion and listen to me ramble on one of my fav subjects for the first time. This is inspired by some of my favourite fashion dudes to watch on YouTube – since there are way too many to name, let’s just say every single menswear YouTuber I’ve ever viewed has contributed their share towards this direction shift.


A few weeks back, I held a giveaway for my readers to win a pair of animal graphic tees by Chiang Mai-based artist, Ko and I’m pleased to announce that the lucky winner is Clair Downham!! Please check your inbox for details and I hope you enjoy the prezzies! 😀

    I love this out fit! The colours are fab for this time of year 🙂 Love the red converses too, I recently bought some bright yellow ones. Bright is definitely the way forward! Vlogging sounds interesting… I have to admit it’s not for me, but I hope you have fun!

      Yellow Converses do sound good ha!

      Thanks! I never thought it was for me either but as the article emphasises, it’s a part of experimenting and I’m really enjoying the planning process! 😀

    Very nice, the skinny jeans with checked shirt tied round your waist style is very popular right now, it’s a good look! Good luck with the vlogging! x

      It is very hip, but it was something new that I’ve never tried so I thought I’d give it a go! I’m glad you like it!

    I love this look! The shirt tied around your waist looks really cool and I loved the olivervtwist pun you got in there!

    I love your red converse! I always wish I could pull them off, but they don’t seem to suit me. x
