GRIDS AND GRINS

A casual Friyay loaded with grids and grins featuring le sis again. We are YAYing for the apparently breathtaking solar eclipse (we totally missed it but still YAY!). What I'm really grinning about is the bright weather and we are definitely excited for more warmth but hey no pressure there England. Do your thing but do it with less of the dullness. Thank you ever so much! All smiles...

Have a dandy wandy weekend everyone! <3

Here's that random day out in London full of pizza crumbs, gallery hopping and lots of walking around that resulted to this series of quality OOTD snaps with typical blogger poses. Gracias to Mabdulle, this skilled guy behind the camera for making me look "style blogger approved".

How We Do // Midi


In commemoration of the Indian spring we're experiencing today, here I'm giving you these "twinning" OOTDs developed from the warm gust of yesterday. I got to play dress up with le sissy. Our styles are distinctive though we share same interests in some things; midi skirts, for instance. We usually get those days where we end up matching accidentally. However, on this particular day I got to style her and I infused a brief rag and edge in her sports luxe and chic ensemble.

With my outfit, I have no clue how to describe it so I'd just go for 'modernised grandma'. Thought of anything cooler? Let me know. Tell me what you think about midi skirts too. How would you wear them?

Scuba Under A Tunnel

This weekend, I took Wang for a spin and scuba dived through this dull white, tunnel-like corridor.

I'm honestly slightly sick of this "black is the new black" catchphrase. Black has always been black and I go all out with it when bad things go down in my wardrobe. Well, you know when you're stuck in a rut thinking of what to wear... We've all been there! Though in these type of dilemmas, I find that going all black saves my day. It's a classic so there's nothing new to it, but it is great (deep thoughts eh? ha!).

With going all black everything, I think of textures, weight and length. Those elements give the 'fit life and make it less like a mourning uniform.

Blocking That Drive Way

Short and sweet. "I'm your street art now". 

I have this weird infatuation with garage doors. This one is situated on a hectic road in Soho. With garage doors, I've been finding the likes to pose and pull an #ootd against them. In my peculiar brain, that's Chariza as a "clothed art installation" hence the street art malarkey (haha). Things worked out well thanks to Skai who snapped these photos.

Well, you know garage doors aren't unusual in the "blogger" world (so no LOLs for this matter).

Post Pop / Art Stack

Before you miss out on this refreshing and impressively curated exhibition located in one of my favourite space in London, I'm giving you a glimpse of all the awesomeness (it's up till tomorrow!). Here's an archive of works I collected from Saatchi gallery's 'Post Pop: East meets West'. The exhibition showcases some of my favorite's works by artists like Michael Craig Martin, Paul McCarthy, David Mach, Duchamp, Sherrie Levine, etc.

The exhibit is broke down into different themes such as Habitat, Advertising and Consumerism, Celebrity and Mass Media, Art History, Religion and Ideology and Sex and the body.

Reviewing every art pieces would definitely not appeal most of you so I'll pass with that as I may come across overly "hyped" about the whole thing (which is actually a fact because I really really am super hyped). So here I'll break it down to what is my general view about this expo. They exhibited a perfect blend of what's normally called "shocking art", with Paul McCarthy's Spaghetti Man being present. Interesting experience: I took a break from exploring the gallery while I sat down by this life-sized sculpture placed right when you enter the 3rd floor. There, I witnessed everyone's response and expression towards this rabbit head with a long floppy dong (you can lol at my description if you will). Some are shocked but most are immediately tickled/amused by this famous Spaghetti Man. I also found kids doing a drawing response to it which is plain weird and other kids discussed the bunny's long tail. I'm pretty sure they were not advised to be there but it just makes everything a little controversial.

Some infamous works of Andy Warhol are here too. The bronze urinal called 'Foundation (after Marcel Duchamp: A.P.)Sherrie Levine that is one work that I highly appreciate and I'd love to own (yes, give me that shiny Duchamp urinal). There are many things to see here. I believe that they exhibited a good mix of classic, recent and ancient popular culture but yet showcased it with a very current feel that hits "this generation". Pop art in itself is something recognisable by almost everyone and it is somehow relatable to every age. As controversial and shocking the whole thing may be, I just think that Charles Saatchi has executed a refreshing set that is visually powerful and it tickles the mind. I would want to go technical and go into details but then I'll leave you to think.

Speaking of collecting art / "stacking" art. I've recently discovered this mobile app, Art Stack; an application that allows you to gather and share artworks in the most convenient way. If you are an artsy fartsy like me, check it out!
