Cathedrals and Pleats


Being at CHIJMES never fails to captivate me, filling my insides with tons of inspiration for my writing. Maybe it’s the gothic-style chapel or ┬ámaybe it’s the connection I feel -being an IJ girl myself. But whatever it was, it always presented me with good vibes.

I chose a semi formal, off-white, two piece set to wear to the My Fair Lady musical -went on behalf of the magazine I work for. Had this outfit in my closet for the longest time before I mustered up the courage to wear this out in public, well even more to a fancy musical play held at the Marina Bay Sands Theaters. The masculinity drawn from the button-up collars and rolled cuffs were neutralized by darling pleats running a third down the cropped top. All in all, besides my bad hair day (uneven and dry.. why?!) I adored this chic, daring look I ‘pulled off’ subtly.
