One of my Summer favourite is to wear denim, it is very chic and always a must have in my closet. This time I styled with my vintage second hand denim jacket with a white crop top and self-dyed denim shorts. For the shoes I chose my super comfortable jogging trainer from nike. I like the way is yellow so it can be brighten up my look especially in Summer time it need some fun colour to add in.

After my sister’s graduation ceremony, on the next day my whole family went to Holland for vacation. We spend two days at Giethoorn and four days at Amsterdam main city. Let’s talk about Giethoorn a countryside in Holland it takes around two hours driving from Amsterdam to there. The people in there are base on the agriculture for goods. Fresh air, cow, and sheep can be easily found, it was so relaxing at there. I would say I like here more than Amsterdam maybe the lifestyle here is more simple.
Then we spend the next four days at Amsterdam… I know Amsterdam is well-known about the red light district, cycling and the “freedom” you know what I mean! But it is more about that, they also famous of all kind of museums, simply what you can think of on top of your head you can go to see it at the museum. On the first days when we arrive Amsterdam we did not get the chance to go to the museum it’s a bit rush so we decide just to hang around at the city. Riding the canal is another way to expose the city, by coincidence is the sun fall when we ride the boat everything is so nice.
Spending my day four at Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum. Personally I like the Stedelijk Museum more. The museum is on modern art, photography and short films I would recommend this museum if you are going to Amsterdam soon.
Day five, the most exciting day! Zaanse Schans a little village full of windmills. They are magnificent and remarkable, apart from that every windmill have their own function some will cut the woods, some are for the colour mixing even nowadays people are still using these windmills. We are allowed to see how the windmills functions and the mechanics inside.
Second series of summer style is up! These photos are taken from Greenwich which is a very nice place. I like this outfit so much especially with my white Zara short it looks like a skirt but it is a short. It is pretty decent to style I think it is quite suitable for a formal event like a family gathering. I paired the short with a simple T-shirt and my sandal to finish my look. Sunglasses obviously cannot be miss out in particular of this kind of weather, I bring in the Jeremy Scott cross over the Linda Farrow sunglasses to highlight the look. For more detail or links of the clothing please see details below.
Outfits: Sunglasses – Linda Farrow x Jeremy scott, Top – Boy London, Short – Zara
Is summer time. Recently I have been to Venice, Italy with my friends it is an exciting trip that I meet different people and places that I never been. Venice is a glamorous place to explore. They got beautiful housing and unsophisticated lifestyle which I wish I could stay there forever. I am going to share my outfit of these three days and some adorable picture that I have taken.
Here is the first day look, typical tourist like, simple and comfortable. Because I’m going to travel by plane and I don’t know what the weather is like in Venice I feel like this will be a suitable choice to wear. Jean, T-shirt and scarf make me feel cosy.
We went to a little island which is next to Venice where it was famous in lace called BURANO. Burano had got absolutely stunning houses, you can find different colour of house in there. I feel the weather is pretty chill and hot in there so I picked my blue jumpsuit, alongside pair up with a floral vest and of course a pair of sunglasses is essential in this weather.
I feel like I should rock on the last day so I pick a boy friend jean and a white vest shirt to finish my look I pair them with my black sandals. Certainly one of the tourist must do list is to ride the GONDOLA along in the Canal Grande. We also went to San Marco church visit the plaza. Venice is definitely a nice place to visit and the trip was surreal.
‘The Threesome’ the scene that I watched at CSM on last Thursday, it is a collaboration with the MA Acting Drama Centre London students and the 3rd Year CSM student who are studying Performance Design and Practice. Since my sister is currently studying at CSM that’s why I got the opportunity to watch it.
The play is set in 1870 in a fashionable suburb outside Paris. The female lead, Hermance were mainly from bourgeois background and the main character is conducting a largely frustrated affair with her young husband’s best friend. However my main focus was base on the costume more than the scene. Once the scene had started, I was quickly driven by the designs; the accessories and the make up.
Hermance – Maia Watkins, Krampach – Christopher Briks
Costume made by Beth Blight
Beth designs the colourful orange costume for Hermance (main character) and the costume for Krampach (servant) in this scene. I think the costume were made beautifully alongside with those character. The use of colour and tone are highly match with Hermance particular approbate; how it had referred to the accessories with the same colour. The chiffons also highlight the dress, although you may disagree with me that the use of a bright colour was not prevalent in Victorian but throughout the play I think this suit her personality as she is an arrogant, insolent and fun fun’s sake women.
Lisbeth – Jennifer Woods, Hermance – Lila Newman
Costume by Vivian Lee
Lisbeth (other servant) referred to the photo that I showed above. The two servant from Alsace work well together when they first appeared, they are my favourite actor throughout the play. For instance their act are vivid and lively especially when they try to talk in French accent. The costume which showed below was another design by my sister, Vivian. Perhaps, it was the right period of Victorian dress and it was very elegant and charming when the model apparel. I think it is very creative that the pearl had associated with the costume although it does not look like a traditional Victorian dress however it still follow some of the idea such as the the frills on the dress and macrame .
Bertha – Anita Joy Uwajeh
Costume made by Christina Lunn
This is my favourite costume across the whole play, possibly it had a bit over stylish as Bertha is not the main character in the play but I think the royal blue of the costume had formulated well with the actresses and I am very impressive and surprise with the design of princess sleeves and collar it is stunning. Another originality that keeps the continuity of the Victorian design but had showed some changes.Lastly, the details of her hat is adorable as you can see that the actresses had addressed well with it.
It is joyful to watch the play as the French Farce is not sophistic that I am expecting as it is more like a classical English Plot a bit silly, heady and a happy ending at the end! As I know is a disaster for the designers to made both men and women costume (if I did not mention your costume did not mean it does not look good, it is just because I can’t take a good picture on your costume…pathetic) with limited time as I saw my sister had work so hard on her design and sewing. Both designers and actors are outstanding, well done everyone! I enjoyed so much on that night.
