The last of sight

Photos by KJ

ON THE RAILWAY TRACKS. You know, since the Chinese New Year is looming ahead where one of the usual practice is to make way for new clothes in the wardrobe! I think this is the most exciting part to celebrating this festive season. You get complete legitimate reason to pamper yourself and buy new clothes!


And recently, I have been swapping clothes between two other cousins of mine. It started when I started a Whatsapp chatgroup and posted pictures of all the clothes that I don't intend to keep and asked if they would like any of it before it goes to the Salvation army for donation. To set the record straight, it has been sort of a practice within our family to pass down clothes, so it's also a blessing that 3 of us are of around the same body height and frame.

Just the other day, my cousin posted this within the chat group that she didn't want this chevron top anymore and I suspect it's because of the extra lace details that went around the hem. So I took it over from her, removed the extra lace and now it's one of my favourite tops for school!



Since it had been chilly lately, I decided to wear long sleeves out for the day, paired with a black studded shorts that I received from Perdita's. It has little stud details at the corners of the shorts, and it's made of suede material. I'm really happy to find another pair of shorts which fits me very well - not too loose at the waist area and also not too short at the hem. Coming from Perdita's Disney Collection, the girls had named this the Jasmine shorts and it also comes in denim blue color! 

I accessorised the look with nothing more than a white leather cuff that is from Perdita's as well, matching chevron earrings and ballet flats on my feet. Boyfriend and I went to the Railway Mall area which is near my school to take these photos, and I guess this is the perhaps one of the few places left in Singapore to capture the last of these train tracks. 

Initially we thought that they were gone for good when it was announced that they would be removed, but we were really happy when we saw that there was still a small section intact! So there you go, I hope you girls will like the photos and to my love, today I wish you a 3rd year (and one month) anniversary.

  4. I think the last picture is really cute! And it's cool that the 3 of you got nearly the same body frame. I've always wanted to try that but unfortunately, I don't have the chance yet :< Saves $$ x 3 times! Hahaha. Yep, nice hair cut, just in time before CNY!
