Words: Yours truly • Photos: David

Now that there’s definitely a chill in the air, it’s time to talk about transitional fashion. For me, the autumn/winter can only mean a number of things: fewer hours of daylight but many more opportunities to play with layers; dialling down the temperature but dialling up the toastiness… all the way up!

In this post, I’m going to show you how I style my trusty black overcoat – a style staple of mine, here’s why… Continue Reading

Words: Yours truly • Photos: David • Location: Oslo Opera House

(This one is coming to you a little bit later than I would’ve liked but better late than never, right? Right.)

About 10 days before D and I took off to Asia, we went on a little Bank Holiday trip with two of our dear friends, Asma and Mo of Jet Set Chick fame. We went to Norway, stayed in a beautiful Airbnb on the island of Tjøme, and had a brilliant time.

Now we rarely ever go on holidays with friends. We might have gone on holidays ‘to see friends’ but not often ‘with friends’, and from this trip, I picked up a few tips and tricks to organising a getaway with a group of people – and here they are. Continue Reading

Let’s get the formality out of the way : if you’re reading this from the UK, happy Bank Holiday! Otherwise, I hope you’re having a terrific day nonetheless.

Now here’s a confession : I’m not very good at fashion-blogging when I travel. As in, I rarely ever blog about my travel outfits these days, but as it was my birthday trip, I felt I had to post at least one OOTD post from Portugal to remember what I wore – so here’s one I shot in Lisbon… more specifically, Belém.

Personal Style : 5 Tips for Finding Your Own

Words: @oliverinstead • Photos: David

Growing up in Malaysia, I had no ideal what ‘personal style’ was… Heck! I didn’t even know that ‘style’ was a thing until a couple of years ago. For the looooongest time I just wore what I thought looked kind of decent, without actually knowing if it suited me… even though I like to think I’d always had an eye for it. Whatever ‘it’ is.

Having experimented with my personal style quite a bit – especially recently, having acquired my first piercing and changed up the same slicked-back hair I’d worn for years – I decided to share what I’ve learnt from my journey to finding my own personal style. Continue Reading
