{Travel Thursdays} Trinh's First Tuk-Tuk Experience

Thursday, 24 April 2014

Happy Thursday all! Oh so close to Friday, almost there =)  The last time I posted an article about my Asia trip was way back in January..and I feel so bad for falling apart on that.  So now I have decided to link my travel adventures to a new segment called {Travel Thursdays} and I am going to commit to making weekly posts!

Today's post will be about my SE Asia Trip back in December 2013 - Thailand Stop.

Watercolor Peplum X Sarah Stevenson

Wednesday, 23 April 2014



This dress is my absolute favourite piece from the entire Sarah Stevenson collection for Target - a peplum dress with watercolor print details.  There isn't really much styling required for this dress given it stands out on its own, adding anything too crazy would overdo it.  After watching one of my favourite blogger, Chriselle Factor's video for work outfits, I decided to get myself a tweed jacket.  And her it is featured along with this peplum dress!

Floral Tee X Sarah Stevenson for Target

Sunday, 20 April 2014



I went a little crazy at the Sarah Stevnson collection for Target...so you will be seeing a good number of pieces and outfits from it.  I have a tendency to buy dresses and bottoms more than tops..so I decided to try out something different. I was known by friends to be a b/w girl so my purchases from this collection surely surprised them. This floral jersey was the perfect pick as its a total 180 degrees turn from my usual self. One, I don't wear t-shirts much. Two, it is colorful and three, it floral printed.  

Last of the winter chill

Friday, 11 April 2014


Vintage options always give a unique touch to an outfit. I am totally overwhelmed by how this poncho complete with a hint of faux fur looks given I spent only £10 on it in a thrift store.

I wanted to pay homage to the winter chill that's leaving us in rainy London... as we are now headed towards spring/summer. In other words, it gave me ample excuse to wear my little faux hat!

Ombre Watercolor X Sarah Stevenson for Target

Thursday, 10 April 2014


Finally, it is actually starting to look at Spring here in Toronto.  I took advantage of the beautiful weekend that passed to sport some fantastic textile pieces I picked it from Target for the Sarah Stevenson Collection in March.  Personally, I am a huge supporter of Toronto designers and when I first learned about the arrival of this collection, I had to hop on it.  Today's look is filled with reds, ombre watercolors, and patterns! 

Must See: Toronto Vintage Show

Tuesday, 8 April 2014


This was my first time attending the Toronto Vintage Show and I must say, I was quite impressed.  The weather was terribly cold that day and I swear, if I ate any less, the wind would have blown me away.  The ticket for the show was only $10 CAD with exhibits from various Vintage stores, re-sellers and collectors. I tried my best to dress as vintage like as possible.  I personally love vintage looks but not an expert in putting an outfit together in that style. What do you guys think of this look?

Yinsey does Vogue Festival in London's Southbank Centre!

Friday, 4 April 2014



Vogue Festival is one of those pilgrimages a fashion blogger just has to make. Vogue has been such an iconic publication, changing the face of fashion over the decades and reinventing what's wearable. To celebrate this, they brought in the heavyweights in fashion to discuss their thoughts on the industry, their careers and respective inspirations. There was even a 'show your work' booth where creatives were given the chance to get feedback from members of the British Vogue team.

I was delighted to hear Naomi Campbell and Franca Sozzani speak on this occasion, taking my mum out for Mother's Day. The panel discussion was filled with fabulous heart-to-heart exclamations of what makes these women tick, and the potential for Africa as a new fashion leader in future. You can read about the talk in my contribution to Jute Magazine here.
