I think I’m too inspired by the 90s this week, probably because of the playlist I made and the 90s party by Trasher Bangkok last night. I wanted to try the grunge look as well wearing black and all but I feel like pastel is my kind of 90s.
THURSDAY LOOK: The kind of 90s you can wear on weekdays. Keep your clothing simple and play more with the accessories. Who said 90s look aren’t formal enough to wear to work?
(V-Neck Top: XXI Forever, Purple Lace Choker: Rude Nineties Girl, Purple Trousers: Vintage, Shoes: JuJu Footwear, Bag: Issey Miyake Bao Bao Rainbow)
SATURDAY MORNING LOOK: You can grab your favorite pair of sunglasses that goes with your top, or steal your mother’s 90s shades. Never throw your old stuff away especially your mother’s treasures! Going through her old clothes and accessories are much better than visiting your favorite vintage clothing store. My mom gave me her Ray-Ban W2834 ages ago and I used to think that it wasn’t fashionable at the time so I kept it away in the cupboard, now it’s my new favorite item♡
My red and pink attempt two, Nude lip colors are my current obsession, Kinda Sexy by Mac Cosmetic is the one I’m wearing in this look.

There are loads and loads of 90s hairstyle you can create, I was just inspired by one of my childhood favorite Thai singer back in the day. I personally loveeeee the combination of Pink Overalls and White Sport bra♡
No no. Just that plain choker you are wearing isn’t enough to feel the vibe. I was raised during the time when Mom carried her big mobile phone around, Britney was the princess and Cher was the style icon, yes that’s my kind of nineties! ♡ Here is my super nostalgic 90s playlist, I will not even say these songs are my guilty pleasure ’cause they’re always my favorite since the cassettes era! :-)
Not in the list but currently on repeat

Thick black lashes, check. Nude matte coloured lips, check. The flawless I-woke-up-like-this curly hair, check. And just right before you step out for the fabulous cosmopolitan night with your ladies, you stare down at your blank, plain finger nails laying sadly on the door knob looking extremely colorless and boring. You know right away that you have to call and cancel your friends. If you are as obsessed and fascinated with such beauty that you completely understand how much bad nails can give you a totally bad day (or in this case, night) then I welcome you to “The Nail Spell” where I will only be talking about nails, nails, nail art and…nails!
I came across this Japanese nail salon (yes in Bangkok!) few weeks ago through her Instagram where Amy (the nailist) had all the interesting nail designs. I just can’t resist to call for reservation seconds after I scroll down her gallery. With all the exciting details and decorations you can only find in Japanese nail salons I was very happy crossing out ‘visit nail salon in Japan’ on my wish list.
When I got there I asked her for a cosmic, stone textured nails, and I’ll tell you stones are not so-2014 like you think cause it’s always as fashionable as your little black dress. So don’t put your stone bracelets hid away in the cupboard just yet!
Amy painted my nails carefully layer to layer placing turquoises, stickers and tiny flakes on each of them slowly. Without having to tell her exactly what I wanted for each nails like I used to with other nail salons, she completes my imagination perfectly with her own style. As if the nails are her art canvas.
For those of you who are interested in getting your nails done like mine and never miss a single girl’s night out again, you can check out her Instagram (@abracadabra_nailaddict).
When I was young my mom used to set this one and only wardrobe rule which is NEVER to wear pink with red, ever. So I got a habit of separating the two colours no matter what. For example I always thought that it’s a disaster to combine pink top and red skirt together, or if I wear red lips I will never wear something pink to go with it. But I later realised that a little bit of them both could be nice too, it just all depends on the tone you choose.
I discovered a little bit of wine/oxblood red and pastel pink could simply get along, during the time I got dark red gel manicure, so I couldn’t remove them when I wanted to spend my day thinking pastel. Sometimes extremely bright red and pink (like my Marimekko purse) is also a lovely mixture. Maybe I should try matching pink top and red skirt together again (in bigger size now of course that time I was only 7).
