I have a weakness for harem pants and anything drop crotch and drapey so when I saw my cousin wear them around like he was the coolest kid around, I was like I. Need. Them. So I begged my aunt to bring me to the shop to buy one pair but I somehow ended up with 3. Oops. I will be coming back to Thailand in February/March to get more pairs. Would you like me to show you how I style harem pants? If so leave me a comment and I will do just that.

Chanel. All I have to say and people will instantly think of high end chic and elegance. Lately I've been obsessing over Chanel's boy bag which everyone and their aunt (yes my aunt has every size and color as of now) seems to have. What prompted this new obsession of mine? Well long story short, my aunt went to England with one Chanel bag to come home with another. Oh the green eyed monster was in full affect. But I have hope that one day a Chanel bag will come my way. It is just a matter of time. Hope all your Chanel dreams come true!

Hi everyone! I have a very exciting project coming up in the next few months and it's still highly top secret but just wanted to give you guys a heads up that change is a coming. Bear with me during this transition time because I still am in Thailand but will be going back to America soon. Will keep the posts flowing still so no worries!

In Thailand, what the hip young people do (I say this like I'm not a young person) is go to hang at cafés and drink coffee and eat cakes, sandwiches and macarons. Or whatever that cafe offers. So since I'm a hip young person, I joined the bandwagon and have gone to a few cafés to relax and sip on a coffee.

Hi my name is Bell and I have a problem. I love shopping and I shop a lot. Ah, it's nice to get that off my chest. Now that I've started a new job in a different country, my style has changed and evolved. I used to buy buy buy for no reason and usually buy cheaper less quality items. I used to buy because something was on sale and not because I necessarily liked it. But now I'm investing in more pieces that will last and that are good quality. Here's some damage that I've done.

Whenever I come to Thailand, I rest for a couple of days for the jetlag to subside and then I hit the mall. And the first store I go to is Jaspal. It is definitely my type of style which is a mix if trends with classic pieces. It's price point is on par with Zara and Topshop and there is definitely quality put into the stiching and fabric. This brand is only in Thailand I believe but correct me if I'm wrong, so if you're ever in Thailand, check out Jaspal.
I have gone through phases of color and pattern but now since I am older, I am gravitating towards more minimal and classic pieces that will last me many years of wear. I still love my patterns and color but for now they will be accent pieces in my wardrobe.
Tshirt: Club Monaco
Shoes: Charles and Keith

Hello my friends, yes, I have been away from my blog for a long time but I do have a reason, I have temporarily moved back to my home county, Thailand. The reason for my move is because my grandparents aren't doing so well so I have come to take care of them. I have also got a new job at my uncle and aunt's factory as their designer. So I have a ton of workwear outfits to post. The quality of the images may not be the best because I don't have a photographer on hand. So here are some of my office outfits.

Color. A word I used to dread so much in my early teenage years. Those times I stuck to my comfort zone neutral pallet, which consisted with a lot of greys, creams, whites and blacks. But this year especially, I've found my eyes wandering to all the most bright, garish, in your face pieces of clothing. It must be something in the water because now as I'm currently writing this post, I am wearing a St. Patrick green chino pant (preferably cuffed at the ankle), my fashion blogger girlcrush, Leslie from Splendid Rags, is literally the definition of color and I plan on coloring my hair a mauve color. Color on color on color I must say and that ain't a bad thing.
Here are some pieces that are just a must have for introducing your wardrobe to color.
Spring and Summer are all about vibrant colors, textures and patterns. And a blog that embodies eternal spring is Splendid Rags. Leslie does an amazing job at creating unique playful outfits that are full of color. When you look at those outfits, you can't help but feel happy and inspired. Because of Leslie, I've decided that my monochromatic wardrobe is in need of a splash (or maybe more than a splash) of color.

One of my idols in fashion hands down has to be Jenna Lyons. She literally embodies everything sophistication and class. As the President and Creative Director (yes those must be capitalized for the drama's sake) as read in interviews, not that I've met her in person or anything, she seems like the most down to earth kind of person. And oh my oh my is her closet to die for. Love everything about her work at JCrew since I am an avid JCrew shopper, pixie pants a must.
