Fashion and K-Pop

By April 26, 2016 Me, Myself & I

IMG_7797 copy

I’ll be the first one to admit that I don’t really like shooting in a situation where there’s no shade and the sun is shining so bright that you have to squint so hard to see what’s in front of you. This probably stems from having read many negative comments about shooting under the sun. There’s the harsh lighting, shadows and very limited facial expressions – but, these don’t really bother me anymore as I have learned that through hardships you gain knowledge and skills. I actually learned a couple of editing skills from this shoot. It gave me a chance to tweak and used a few tools that I normally wouldn’t have used if I were to shoot in open shades. I learned that stepping outside of your comfort zones once in a while ain’t so bad. Self-confidence and motivation are your key to success. Now onto my next point.
I don’t know about you guys, but, I’m obsessed with Korea, especially its music (K-Pop in particular) and food. K-Pop has actually been the base of my fashion inspiration for quite some time now. I used to dislike their fashion, especially 8 – 9 years ago as it was kinda cheesy and cringeworthy. Today, they are starting to lead the fashion world, in terms of style and creativity. If I’m in need of inspiration, I always go on YouTube and look at some recent MV and what they would wear. If you’re ever in the market for a fresh new look and style, definitely give K-Pop a chance. I promise you wouldn’t regret it! Not to mention, you will be exposed to new music that are quite different from what’s playing on the radio right now.

One Long Silhouette

By April 18, 2016 Me, Myself & I

Spring has finally sprung in Toronto!! I have been waiting for a long time for the weather to warm up and I can finally say that it is – what a relief! Now that winter is officially over, I’m feeling more alive (cue background music “Alive by Sia”) and energetic, not to mention I can start drinking BBT (Bubble Tea) again. Now that the weather is kinda hot now, I actually don’t have an excuse to stay cooped up inside my bedroom anymore – with that being said, it’s time for me to start doing fashion photography again. It has been ages since I last shot one. Creative juices are flowing in my head and it is time to turn these ideas into realities. There’s nothing more fulfilling than seeing your ideas become real. In addition to that, I can also improve my photography skills and take these skills and passion for photography a step further and make a career out of it.
Now that’s out of the way, let’s talk style! Today’s look is a little bit simpler than my other ones, as I’m only wearing a black jumpsuit (the struggle to find a good was real! 😂) and to make this look not so plain jane, I add some silver details to it, such as a silver watch and a bound cuff. I think this is such a comfortable look without losing its appeal when it comes to a one continuos silhouette. This actually makes a perfect travelling get-up as it’s comfortable and light. Now, the important question for me is – should I get my second jumpsuit in military green or beige? Decision.. decision… decision…

Got the Blues

By April 10, 2016 Me, Myself & I

It’s finally April, but I have just received news that we might be getting our last snow today. This winter has been dreadful and quite long, but I’m glad that weather is starting to get warmer, which means it’s time for me to break out my new spring coat and jacket. For today, let’s stick with this awesome Forever 21 Men denim coat. I actually wasn’t even looking for one, but as fate would have it I found this coat online at forever21.com. As usual with my online shopping habit, I decided to check out Forever 21 to see what they have in store for spring and little did I know this coat was featured on the first page and my eyes couldn’t stop looking at it. Immediately a few ideas on how I would style this came to me and here we are.
The different textures presented from the sweater and denim jacket compliment each other and they add a nice touch of raw / edgy vibe to this look. Aside from that, the different levels of blues come together as one and they make a one cohesive look. To make it not so plain, I added these cuff bounds from THP Shop and I also wore these awesome mesh slip-ons from Guess’s spring 2016 collection. The mesh slip-ons are actually made of two layers of mesh with different colours, which creates this blue-purple-ish colour. Definitely a must buy, if you’re looking for a pair of statement shoes to enhance your spring look.

Frozen

By March 28, 2016 Me, Myself & I

Last week was a little bit rough because I was sick as a bat. It started with a sore throat that turned into a cough and then I hit the holy grail, which was the flu. I’m usually really healthy and it’s very rare for me to get sick – but hey, I guess I’m no Superman.The first day of spring in Toronto, we got hit with a nasty “winter storm” that lasted for a day, although, I was grateful for the aftermath in the form of frozen trees, and bushes. They make such a great backdrop and not to mention they add pleasant textures to the photographs.
I took these pictures a couple of days after the storm and as you can see, I had to rush a little bit because all of the ice started to melt because the weather was getting a little bit warmer on that day. The white of the ice and the red of the branches added a nice pop of colour against my neutral sweater and coat. Now, what’s an outfit post without a close-up shot of the complete look, am I right? For the closing picture of this post, I decided to shoot in a different location. I utilized the solid yellow lines to make the outfit more pop especially against the bottom half of my outfit.
