new york, new york

A speedy hello from one of my favourite cities in the world! Here again and decked out in mustard tones to complement the yellow cab frenzy around New York. The weather has been comfortable, and when you’re jet lagged and already heading out around 7AM every day, the lighting works in your favour.


Our first stop was Top of the Rock that I’ve been to many times, both in the early mornings and during sunset, and the view still overwhelms me! There is something special about New York that makes you believe the sky is the limit. See you on Instagram!

 

 

yayoi kusama

June 7, 2017 |Comments

After connecting the dots at Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition in Tokyo, I was naturally obsessed with her dazzling work of pumpkins, dots and mirrored rooms. They don’t actually permit photo-taking in Tokyo’s version of the Infinity Mirrored Room, so you can just imagine the new exhibition at the National Gallery Singapore starting this Friday (June 9) will be a huge hit with the Instagram generation. And I’m not going to lie, I loved every bit of it.

With All My Love for the Tulips, I Pray Forever (2013)
If it’s not already obvious that I coordinated my outfit with the various mesmerising rooms and works, well I did. I even got my boyfriend to wear white so we could match for the mirrored room ‘gram. Worth it!

Infinity Mirrored Room: Gleaming Lights of the Souls (2008)
This is my favourite room, of course. After my failed attempt at sneaking a photo in Tokyo’s museum, I’m so glad I could recreate the memory here in Singapore with my favourite person, in my favourite room, in one of my favourite outfits. 

 

 

The Spirits of the Pumpkins Descended into the Heavens (2017)
I was invited for the media preview but I assure you that this is no ad, and that you really have to see the rooms in person. It is a fantastic experience and you get to discover Kusama’s creative vision from the 1950s to the present, including works never shown before (from private collections).

Narcissus Garden (2017)
Tips: Go early. Go on a weekday. Be patient. Some of the rooms are timed so you can get a great photo, so I’d say the queues are worth it anyway. Have fun and don’t forget to say hi on Instagram!

I fell hard for these Gianvito Rossi ‘Marie’ lace-up boots the first time my eyes laid on them, and you can obviously see why. The satin, the lace-up, the thigh-high.. what’s not to love? Fast forward a couple weeks later, I managed to land the last pair (ever, ever, ever in the world) in my perfect size and I swear I have trouble taking them off. For one, I wish I could wear them to sleep, and secondly, the tying and untying gets a bit hectic especially when you’re in the changing rooms. That said, the concealed zipper is a lifesaver though, so thank goodness for that. Now, only if you can spot it..
