Hello from S.Korea! I know I've been MIA for the longest time (again) but I've been crazy busy juggling work, my soon-to-be-nonexistent social life and a very special project that I absolutely cannot wait to share with you guys when its ready! Bear with me for the moment- although I think by the time I'm ready to start blogging properly again I won't have any more readers.

In the meanwhile, to breathe some life into this space, I'm very proud to share a project I was asked to be a part of some time back- which explains all the overdressed people in the photo above. Kidding.

For those of you that don't know, StyleXStyle is a Singapore-based website that focuses on all things fashion and cool and most importantly, provides a platform for narcissistic individuals like myself to share them OOTDs (it's a serious business). Think of it as our Lookbook.nu, but with way more content. 9 fashionista community members and myself were asked to be part of a video shoot that I believe has started airing on bus stops fitted with TVs and that giant screen on the side of ION. It was an incredibly cool opportunity and I cannot thank the StylexStyle team enough for thinking to include me!

(Then again, considering I'm not the most telegenic person around, I might feel differently about it after seeing my face blown up.)

I'm not the biggest fan of pink but why waste a photo op, am I right? I wore this to a friend's gig last night and I'm quite close to burning all my bodycon party dresses. Who needs them when baggy seperates like these exist?

If you follow me on Instagram (@modemayhem), you'd know that I was in Boracay over the weekend! Which explains my lack of posts again- that pre and post vacation workload. I came home to a bunch of stuff I bought though, so proper outfit posts soon!

Boracay was like a dream in so many ways. I was there for such a short time that it did almost feel like something I experienced in my sleep, but I would never have been able to dream up waters that blue or feel how soft the sand was between my toes. I had an amazing time, despite my deep rooted suspicions of the sun's evil UV rays. I went there partly for work too, and everyone was so incredibly efficient, generous and welcoming that it made the trip as close to perfect as humanly possible. If only Singapore was more like that.

I'm definitely going back sometime soon- for much, much longer the next time round.

One of the things about dating a DJ is that you tend to find yourself in clubs quite often, which means you never have enough party dresses. I don't really blog about my party outfits but for the most part, I just piece separates together and throw on a bunch of bling. For special occasions though, I do like dressing up and behold, the dress I got for the Valentine's weekend. Also, DJ Craze who happened to be on tour in Asia played at the club my boyfriend works at on Saturday. How can you possibly not dress up for that?

It's quite a statement piece, so I didn't want to burden it with too many accessories and kept it pretty minimal. I've got some plans to wear this out in the day, and seeing how I work from home, am pretty excited about that. I don't actually get to dress up much these days. =O

Anyway, a belated Happy Valentine's Day to y'all out there! I know its a pretty Hallmark-y day, but having a day specially for celebrating love and friendship, is not a bad thing at all in my books.

Ok I don't really have anything against Thursdays, its just that its such a transient day (like its almost Friday, but not quite) sometimes I have problems deciding what to wear. You know what I mean- you want to dress up but at the same time, you don't really want to? This was my compromise: the comfiest oversized shirt in my wardrobe and arm cuffs I latched around my ankles to offset the potential hobo-ness (I'm convinced one of the reasons behind the creation of statement accessories is so you can get away with putting minimal effort into looks).

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go full-on fangirl mode at the FW14 runway shows on Style.com.
