Birds and Leather


I braved the campus in this cute chiffon number, but I also covered up with a leather jacket because I'm shy like that (haha).


I have recently made a Lookbook account for myself and I've often caught myself browsing through hundreds and hundreds of photos of people in layers, boots, coats, and leather jackets. I find it unfortunate that the climate in our country refuses to cooperate with my sartorial dreams of dressing in those beautiful long coats and sky high leather boots.

And so, what is a girl in a tropical country to do? Pair the lightest sheer dress with a leather jacket thin enough to be worn under the scorching sun and this humid weather. Pair with ankle boots and you create for yourself a sub-standard boots-cool-jacket-ensemble. This will have to do for now.



Dress from Robinson's Department store; Mossimo Jacket; Forever 21 booties; Roxy Bag; 
Ray Ban shades; Seventeen gold beaded necklace; Gifted layered necklace

What do you think? Not bad at all, yeah?
