Webb Take Two

30.1.16


Although long cardigans were the "it" item for Fall trends, I believe in versatility; hence wearing it in the Spring or in Melbourne's temperamental weather condition, the occasional cold Summer, is fashionably acceptable. It would have been an average outfit with shorts paired with a crop top, but as you all know, I always like to add a touch of edge in my outfit. So these slight cape-looking long cardigan was truly the perfect cherry on top, for they add just the right amount of drama to an otherwise simple outfit. 
This is the second time I paid a visit to this alluring architecture, but I'm still amazed every time. 


Jumping on the Culottes Bandwagon

By now, most people have jumped on the culottes bandwagon, but it still isn't too late for those who haven't, since they are not going anywhere any time soon. Regardless where you live and your weather condition, anyone can wear culottes to pretty much anything; from a casual Sunday brunch to a professional office meeting, anything goes. Moreover, culottes are especially perfect for those transitional weather, not warm enough for full leg exposure yet just a bit too warm for floor skimming hems. Recently, I went on a mini spontaneous road trip to Cape Schank and wearing these white culottes felt equivalent to wearing fancy pyjama pants. They were the perfect pants to travel with due to their breezy fit yet stylish look. And combining all these elements, it's no surprise that culottes are slowly creeping into the mainstream for everyday wear and even as a wardrobe staple.

The Hermitage

Spending an ordinary day with my good friend, Jessica, always turn into a glamorous adventure regardless weather condition or where we are in the world. We both love photography, dressing up and being surrounded by anything with visually appealing aesthetics. That day we went to visit the Hermitage Hotel in Menteng, Jakarta, was a combination of everything we adore. This Art Deco building is filled with photogenic corners that emit both modern and nostalgic feel simultaneously. We started with with our chitchats and lunch at L'Avenue, then ventured around the hotel. Our favourite places would have to be the staircase with a majestic chandelier as well as Hermitage's rooftop pool with gorgeous vines hanging from above.

Feeling inspired by the colour and architecture of the hotel, I felt that it was appropriate to scheme my outfits accordingly and hence the Palazzo pants (a.k.a. wide leg trousers) and sequins top. Trousers are one of my favourite things to wear, especially wide-legged ones, due to its comfort and relaxed fit. However at the same time, they can elevate an outfit to looking elegant and polished while elongating the legs. Skinny pants will probably never go out of style, but wide-leg pants are another classic that every girl needs to invest in.
