DIY Floral Headband
Recreate the look with Kathy's floral headband tutorial:
How would you describe your style?
It's a mix of vintage/retro and Asian streetstyle
What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?
I love all my vintage dresses! They're hard to come by and procure so I treasure each one of them.
Who are your style icons?
This might sound like a cliche but I really love Alexa Chung's mod style. I also look up to an eclectic mix of fashion-savvy people like Miroslava Duma, Hanneli Mustaparta, Emma Stone, Elle and Dakota Fanning, KARA's Goo Hara, Korean girl group SNSD and Korean model Irene Kim.
Do you have any favourite designers?
I might not be able to afford their clothes but I do admire the works of RED Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Marni, Carven, Oscar De La Renta and Stella Jean. High street brands like The White Pepper and Style Nanda are also some of my favorites.
Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?
Thrift stores! It's so hard to find decently-made clothing where I live so I end up getting most of my stuff at thrift stores.
Do you make or customise your outfits?
I do! As a matter of fact, I have two upcoming skirt sewing projects lined up. I love making high-waisted full midi skirts.
Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?
Don't be afraid to mix patterns and colors. When I have on a perfectly colorful outfit, it doesn't matter if I don't have accessories on.
Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?
I love reading Kittenhood, The Cinnamon Slipper, Wish Wish Wish, Soubrette Brunette, Style Bubble, Nemesis Babe, Autumn in my Veins and Dress on a clothesline. I have a long list of favorite blogs!
