Recreating the Look | Nicole from 'Fear'


The movie Fear from 1996 is one of those films that I feel is under-appreciated in terms of 90s fashion. The main character, Nicole, is a teenager who falls victim to a super shady guy (I'm not going to spoil it, it's worth watching if you haven't) while also having many awesome and inspiring 90s fashion moments throughout the film (I was obsessed with finding low block heel Mary Jane shoes for at least a year after seeing it for the first time). In fact you can watch pretty much any of Reese Witherspoon's appearances in film during the 90s ~ early 2000s and get a ton of style inspiration. What I like about Nicole's outfits is that they incorporate so many quintessential 90s trends, just like her first look as above, which you will recognise from my second 90s look book video. They're also perfect as a guide for recreating an authentic 90s girly look. All items below:

Day in the Life | City Brunch



November 11, 2015
  • Pandan pancakes at Blaq Piq
  • Christmas decorations at the QVB
  • Amazing Peter Pan jewelry! I want it all ♡
Here's another series I'm introducing on my blog - day-in-the-life photo diaries and weekly review posts. I don't tend to create vlog style videos when I'm at home (in other words, not travelling) but I figured this would be a great alternative where I can share snippets of more interesting days in my life. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Coordinated in Fila


This is definitely going to be my favourite look for spring/summer! You might have already spotted this outfit in my recent vlog where I wore it for the first time, and the coordination of the Fila dress and shoes wasn't even intentional. The shoes I've had for over a year though, and they've been around for ages, I just came across them on eBay one day (I think while searching for a different design?). It's interesting to see how Fila has become such a trend nowadays! and I'm glad it has for reasons such as this dress. I kid you not, I was considering buying another one as a backup because I love it so much.



So here are the items from this look! Some are exact and others are similar styles as mine are no longer available. That beret though - I get so many questions about my vintage beret, and this one I found is the most similar I've ever seen in a mainstream store. So now we can all be twinsies.
  1. Polo dress
  2. Mini backpack

Recreating the Look | Mathilda Lando



If any of you guys followed me on Polyvore a couple of years ago (back when I was still an active user) you might remember that I always posted outfit sets inspired by fictional characters. As I say time and time again, a lot of my style inspiration comes from characters from film and TV. So with this in mind, I thought I would bring back these outfit sets here on my blog as a more regular thing!

So today's look is inspired by Mathilda Lando from Leon The Professional. And yes, I know you're thinking that this is very "tumblr" and that Mathilda as a 90s style icon has pretty much been milked dry on the internet over the past couple of years, but she still has a fun look to recreate with modern fashion pieces so of course I had to put together a set for her (plus she was one of the original looks I created back in the day on Polyvore). While Mathilda is a character that I've seen pop up in the form of Halloween costumes recently, her style is also very wearable in an everyday context. She definitely nails the aesthetic of the tough-but-fragile girl. All items below:

Hello Kitty Diner Sydney



Last week I checked out the new Hello Kitty Diner located in The District at Chatswood Interchange, Sydney. Our order included the sweet potato fries, a pancake shake and a cinnamon waffle with apple pie ice cream and caramel sauce. For a quick review on the food, it is very average and not something we'd return for. The shake is basically a maple syrup flavoured thickshake, the waffle was too soft (almost undercooked) on the inside (although the apple pie ice cream was great - plus it's KITTY SHAPED!), however the sweet potato fries were easily the best item we ordered. Thick cut, well-seasoned and not at all dry like others we've tried. The best part was the super cute interiors! Very #aesthetic with the wallpaper and prints reminiscent of 80s and 90s graphic design. It's worth checking out this joint if you're a fan of themed cafes and want a cute photo for instagram.

My Current Makeup Look (Soft Winged Eye)



This is a look I've been wearing very often lately, and it's my go-to look for photos or video. It's easy to recreate, especially the soft winged eye which doesn't require the skill and precision of eyeliner, as I only use black eyeshadow. You can tweak this look in many ways, such as the lip colour, blush tone, and the darkness of the eyeshadow wing. I make mine a lot darker for evening events or for photos! I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial, and you can check out a list of all products used below.
