I’ve been very influenced by oriental details of late and I couldn’t help myself when I saw this perfect suede embroidered varsity jacket. It’s unorthodox of me to style it with a playful pleated skirt but I decided to go for that oriental-meets-west high schooler look for an off day in China.
I realised I haven’t posted a non-advertorial post in awhile so I’ve decided to do this photo diary along with a quick update on life.
I’ve been very blessed. Things have taken a turn for me since about a month ago and everything’s been very smooth-sailing. Work has been very satisfying albeit tiring, and I’m working very hard with my TJM team to improve and create new and exciting concepts/stuff. I’ve also booked myself a week long holiday for end September so I can take a break and hopefully draw some inspiration. I’m thinking of doing a vlog too, what do you think? Can someone recommend me a compact camera which takes good videos and photos pleaseeeee thank you!!
I’m in a very happy place now and honestly, it took a lot to be here but I’m glad I did what I have to, to get there. It’s not that I’ve forgotten anything but I’ve just learnt to focus on myself and on things I’m truly passionate about. So for anyone who’s feeling despair now, trust me when I say things DO get better even when it seems impossible now. Sometimes good things fall apart for better things to come together. Stars shine the brightest when it’s dark, and this is when you will learn the most about yourself.
Wishing y’all a good midweek <3
