Downtown Melbourne

 From downtown Melbourne, you can find this alley of graffiti walls in Bourke Street. This is like the Harlem of Melbourne(if I may put it). Most often, you can find others getting their Instagram moments taken here.  It is a perfect spot to take your OOTDs and whatnot. Yeah, got mine done here obviously! Haha.

I just thought I have been wearing a  lot of denims. As denim, don’t get out of style and it’s so easy to wear. Not much fuss about styling. The acid washed top from Cotton On gave all denim ensemble a touch of edge. I got this really good quality Saxony cardigan from Savers for just $10. So stoked when I saw this and a certain must have for fall and winter. I don’t really get tired of this bow down pose! It’s my angle I suppose haha. I don’t have much angles so I go for it each time. I mean what else should I do? Haha.

Moving on, I am on this stage of my life where I am getting tired of doing things that I am not passionate about. It will definitely get to you either way so I am taking it seriously in planning my career move. I want to be in the style world and I don’t want to get stuck on life choices I have made. As they say, if you are really passionate about something go for it and make it happen. But it’s always  easier said. You got to plan everything first before making the big jump. But I won’t wait for eternity that’s for certain.

Layer, Layer on the Wall

It is starting to get chilly down under (Australia, not what you think it is ). Layering up to trap some body heat, I have used my not widely used vest from Oxygen and my ever dependable grey sweater. 
I managed to write something up today. Thank God! There is just this laziness and stress overload that I have been stricken by. Not good but I am trying.

What I am trying to achieve in this ensemble is the minimalism. Greys and black. Neutral colours are so basic that you can wear them everyday. As they say, you can never go wrong with black. What I love about this outfit is the addition of the layer piece which without it the whole look will look like a drab. It gives a little edge or fashion forwardness if I can say that.

And here is to hope to get these creative juices going! God save me from this quicksand of laziness that I am in!

Unconsciously, I guess I am mostly drawn towards denim. Just last week I stopped by a garage sale near our unit and managed to score a vintage denim jacket for 5 bucks!
(which I have been looking for, for such a long time now). I used to see a lot of these in the thrift when I was in the Philippines but knowing that it is pretty humid to wear those in the streets I just pass them up.

This time it is beginning to warm up already for summer. But it still gets a little chilly sometimes. Melbourne weather is pretty moody like an old lady. I just went with this all denim ensemble. The top is a thrifted Izzue brand which was one of my favorites. Then I just wore a navy blue Tee from Levis and my dependable ASOS extreme super skinny jeans. My shoes are from Zara which I didn’t think I will wear again as it was really tight and kills my toes badly but after I breaking them in, they are okay now.

I thought that my style is becoming more subtle and less flashy like before. Well, I can say my style matures too. I opt for more basics now and staple pieces which can translate to a lot of occasions. I have stocked up mostly on basic T shirts( I think I’m overdoing it now). I’m trying some minimalism now.

Oh my, I have been so lazy to be honest with you but also really busy with work now. This is my first post of the year! I am active on Instagram if you can follow me @knyfortaleza. Will keep trying my hardest to post more!

#OOTD: Nightmare on Maud Street

I did a denim on denim styling here. I tried to use different wash of denim to show off their varied wash and to somehow camouflage the shirt as not being denim. Joggers have been on trend too. It has been a trendy design on classic pair of trousers like the smart jersey jogger pants I wore from my previous post. I am not a fan of drop crotch pants but this Cotton On joggers fit me like a glove. The skinny fit sold me because it doesn’t look too drop crotch when it sits in my thighs.

These outfit posts sometimes are just non sense right? But it’s just what is on my mind. I just want to share my style and hoping to inspire people to be themselves. I pull my confidence from what I wear so I really try to dress up even for a walk to the grocery. 

About the look:
Jacket from H&M (Bought this from Malaysia)
Denim shirt from the thrift (I only got this for 2 bucks!!)
Jeans from Cotton On (was on sale)
Shoes from Roger David (was on sale for 15 bucks!)
