Shot this with the master of film, Samantha, before I had my hair permed. We kind of trespassed the properties of people living along Kiliney Road to get these photos.

I guess I'm still a fan of film thanks to  its high contrast, tint and saturation of colors, which you can adjust according to the kind and brand of film you use. And of course also the anticipation and delayed gratification, which people need to appreciate better these days. Sam shot this with her SLR; and some of the shots were shot on Lomography gold Petzval lens (you can see the previous series she shot here).

I ventured a little out from my personal style and wore this vintage monochrome outfit, inspired by these beautiful leather print loafters from Nelissa Hilman, a KL based shoe designer. I have a soft spot for leopard prints and this pair, printed on soft pony hair is hand sewn for that extra bit of durability. This pair is from her La Dolce Vita collection - they come in a variety of colors and fabrics, all with the signature toe cap and tassels. I love that Nelissa Hilman doesn't compromise comfort for style. These loafers comes with an inner sole cushion and sheep leather lining, making it extra comfortable to be standing around in even for an entire day, plus its square rounded toe design makes it suitable even for slightly wider feet like mine!

Nelissa has collaborated with several Malaysian fashion designers for their show collections with really beautiful results. Really impressive for someone who didn't even study to be a shoe or accessories designer! Check out her collaborations with Jonathan Liang, one of my personal favourite designers, and Tsyahmi and cut your feet some slack - get a pair of her flats *winks*

Gillman Barracks used to be military barracks during the WWII period, so it's architecture is heavily influenced by british colonial elements. Tall, white pillars with an open-air corridor against the contrast of black tiles roofs and window grills.

Only recently in 2013? It has been converted into an art enclave, with many international & local galleries moving into the white bunks where soldiers used to live. Sadly, I guess due to it's location and lack of activities happening at the premises, this place is almost always empty whenever I drop by for a visit, hence, making it ideal for a shoot.

Loving this loose fitting camisole with a loop strap detail at the collar from Tuulla, a new label with great branding and customer service. Ordered it and it didn't fit? They would exchange the apparel for you FOC. Threw this effortless outfit together and topped it off w this Mink Pink floral print shoulder padded cardigan. This one is my ultimate go to to add a pop of color to any outfit.

As promised, here's my second installation of summer resort. Still keeping to the theme of white and blue yes, but this time with a little variation with this print top that looks as though it has been dip dyed. You have to give it to Australian labels for coming up with designs that are easy to wear, yet not boring and I love that The Wyld Shop brings in several Australian brands at really affordable prices which are comparable to high street brands.

In the second of this series, I'd like to share with you some tips on packing for you summer holiday. I'm not the best packer (especially in terms of neatness), but I've traveled enough to know how to pack right.

Holiday Packing

  1. Maxi dress - A slightly dressier one, but still in lightweight fabric like this embroidered chiffon one from Alice & Olivia here
  2. Tops x 3 - Think crop tops, mesh tops, bralets
  3. Bottoms x 3 - Think ripped denim shorts, flirty pleat skirts
  4. Sandals
  5. Crochet kaftan or any other slipon
  6. Bikini set x 3 - What's a beach holiday without multiple swimwear changes?
  7. A trusty beach tote bag and 2 pairs of sunnies (usually I go for one brown and one black)
  8. Beauty essentials - Sunblock (for sure), lip balm, bronzing powder and waterproof makeup
  9. Fabric based accessories - no gold or silver or anything that may oxidise with salt water!
  10. A good book
And there you have it! Hope this will make crafting your pack list much more easier.
