Rare lookbook post but it was yet another case of too many pictures, too little time, which is a situation I find myself in increasingly since the marriage of myself and my Nikon D750, which Nikon Singapore generously gifted me with. Christmas came early this year for me.

These pictures were taken along an empty street corner in Bath, England. I was shooting some visuals for a collaboration with Urban Decay Singapore and Zalora Singapore – as always, I find it easier to experiment with looks when abroad. Firstly you dont perspire it all off, and secondly, if you mess it up, chances are, no one will recognise / remember it.

The inspiration for today’s look came loosely from snippets of Alexa Chung’s style as seen from tumblr and other various online recycling sources. Chung’s style can tend to the extreme for me: I’m half half on her toeing the line between style and a certain heck-care attitude – sometimes a bedhead is just a bedhead. Plus I was sorely disappointed by her book and found it good only for flatlays, which could be a statement on how I sometimes feel towards her as well.. But she has her moments, and the kimono styled with choppy waves is one of them. Plus it was the perfect premise for a smoky eye, which hey hey – is always a good thing in my books.
