Just a few of the things that I wish can magically appear in my wardrobe right now... Evidently I have a minor fever for striped long sleeves, pencil skirts, jersey tops, and anything mesh, paneled, transparent, leather, structured, and monochrome.

My style has evolved over the years. When I first started uni (about two and a half years ago), I was all into the 'vintage/hipster' scene, where I'd wear oversize outerwear and my favourite shop to visit was Vinnies. Color-blocking and print-clashing was a no brainer. I was having fun experimenting, and I didn't understand it when people said "I'm starting to inject color into my wardrobe"- color came so naturally to me.

Now, 2.5 years later, I'm inspired by the minimalist, classy look. Trends may or may not have played a part, but honestly speaking, not all trends have spoken quite so closely to my heart. Now, I like fine jewellery (as opposed to statement necklaces), pencil skirts (as opposed to minis) and strapped stilettos (instead of chunky platforms: think Jeffrey Campbell Litas). I find myself investing more on classic pieces rather than loud statements. 

Maybe I'm growing up to be a lady, maybe my wardrobe just needed an update. Either way, rest assured that every once in a while, that hipster-loving girl in me will pop a visit. I'm just too adventurous to stick to one style for long.
