Waking up and walking around this city is really inspiring, there is a photogenic spot at almost every corner that I turn. Luca and I took these pictures on the day I arrived- the light and the weather was just too beautiful to miss. I never thought I was very much into nature, certainly not as far as wanting hike anywhere but being here has made me so appreciative of the quaint little things you have outdoors that just don’t openly exist in Singapore, like the ducks and seagulls that mingle as they bob up and down on the water’s surface.
Actually, there is nature in Singapore- this one time I saw a snake at the doorway of Abercrombie on Orchard Road and was too stunned to do anything, I just stared at it until someone picked it up and flicked it into the middle of the street. Back to Zurich, there is a pet shop nearby that has the cutest rabbits ever, I’m serious. Every time I walk by I stand at the window and just pine for a little brother or sister for Percy (my rabbit at home). Even though I believe adoption is better, believe me, if you saw these cuties your heart would just melt.
| As for my outfit, I’ve actually had this Stella ‘Falabella’ bag for some time now but never had the chance to style it as it was always full of my work stuff and I had only just emptied it out (whoops!).
I absolutely love the colour of these Finders Keepers trousers that I knew I had to buy them, then had them tailored to fit. I find that for petite people like me, slouchy or ‘oversized’ styles only work well when they have actually been tailored to fit. My tip for finding the perfect balance is making sure that for tops, the shoulders are perfect (although this can be one of the more expensive alterations) and for trousers, that the hem falls at the right place at your ankle.
I had always admired the loose, yet polished style of women like Margaret Zhang and it wasn’t until my own experience at the tailors that I realised the trick of pulling off that kind of look.
