Fierce,

It Summertime! Slay the look with a perfect button shirt that will you stand out. Whenever I choose a button shirt I always look for something unique in colour, buttons, print, and fabric. I have 6 coloured pastel button shirts, 3 leather shirts, and 4 organza button shirts this season. Since I live in the Sandpit I choose something light and bold in colour. My everyday go-to look: button shirt + oversized coat + leather handbag + fitted jeans.

Always look for something unique and that can last for a long time. I usually shop at Net-a-porter, Farfetch, and Mytheresa

they have a wide range of button shirts every season and I buy during Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Dela Va Li

Fierce,
When I checked out the latest collection of Fendi Menswear Spring 2020 Collection, All I could think of was a perfect Italian getaway in Lake Como. Picnic-Ready! is the term that I would use to describe the looks.
A perfect Italian tour in a very classy way. I just love the sunglasses, It gives me that space ranger kind of look.
I also want the layering of prints in different elements.
The color combination of muted pastel colours and black is what we all need when we travel, always go for a Classic look! You will never go wrong with neutral colours with crisp silhouettes. I also would like to make points on the casting of models, It is diverse and something men will relate to when it comes to the looks. I love that they are using different types of models with color and also how they make the styling of each looks well cohesive in terms of the overall sharpness of the look. I want to see more brands embracing diversity when they do casting for models.
Here are my top picks from the collection:

Fierce,

Ready for a Safari trip? When I saw the latest collection of Etro Spring 2020 that tribe inspired looks are something that I will wear on a perfect Inca getaway or a trip to Lima. The solid mustard yellow coat is a must-have, the fully detailed bomber jackets and muted coloured trousers are my choices.

I feel like they are also killing the styling looks as it has a good play of mix and match and color combinations though some women’s pieces are simple for me as it doesn’t level up the expectations I have since It’s all about the tribe prints, over the top layering and unique accessories.

Here are my top picks:

 

Fierce,

If there is a collection that I would love to buy this season that will be the Ermenegildo Zegna. The fluidity, color combination, styling, and juxtaposition of elements is on point.

The masculinity isn’t overpowering and I find it neutral. The neutrality of each look gives me to run off my cards and I will not deny the fact that I am filled with awe on how they pull off the prints flawlessly with the ombre effect.

If I wore one of the pieces, I’m confident I’d slay it in Singapore. The vibe and whole aesthetic are perfect for Asians most especially the muted colour looks.

It is something that many Asian will relate to considering the tropical weather we have. The layering is perfectly done and it is executed in a clever way.

Here are my top picks:

Fierce,

It’s Spring 2020 and you know that this is my favourite season for menswear. I am always impressed with the juxtaposition of elements and print on a look plus It’s out and about to play with colours. I love Versace Me’s wear collection for this season because it gives me that after-party vibes yet still looking sharp.

I always love to mix and match men’s and women’s wear together with my looks to achieve a sharp and edgy vibe to the whole outfit. Of course, white sneakers are ready to strut the runway with a printed ombre to compliment the whole classic vibe.

I love the collection because of its elements and attention to detail most especially for men’s, it’s hard to accessories a lot so we spot on the smallest detail on each and every look. I also adore the sleek and wet look hairstyle for men. It gives a well-polished look without even trying.

Here are my top picks:

Fierce,

Be it career, love, or having your own family, it is often that the waiting game is what makes us lose focus and be demotivated. You see, it’s not always about winning or getting what you wanted when you want it. It’s about keeping your faith and waiting for God’s perfect timing. It’s about getting yourself ready for that breakthrough that’s much bigger than you and the people around you can ever imagine.

Life can be hard at times but sometimes waiting is the only option that you have and while waiting, you have to work harder better than anyone else around you. It’s all about finding the right balance in life and finding what truly makes you happy as a person. The journey will never be easy but it is going to be worth it.

“You will learn, grow and evolve with your decisions in life by being adaptable to everything around you”

It will never be easy but it surely something that will make you stronger, fiercer and better you. Stay as you are and never let anyone dull your shine. That is the beauty of life as you grow older, you become wiser and better through time and challenges.

 

Stay Fierce!

Fierce,

Someone somewhere is going to see your happiness and try to damper it.
They are going to see your positivity and question it. They are going to see how you act—full of life with a smile on your face—and poke fun, or judge, or wag their finger in front of your nose and tell you all the ways you’re wrong.
Don’t let them.

Life is too short to not be passionate – about things, about people, about love, about living.

And if there’s a career or person you’re crazy about, a goal you’re fighting to pursue, a dream you’re still doodling in the corner of your notebook, a song you just keep on singing—I hope you never stop letting that passion fill you.

Our dreams, our drive – those are things that matter at the end of the day. Not how many possessions we accumulate or how much money is in our wallets. Not the things we’ve accomplished or the recognition we’ve been given, or even the times we’ve failed.

What matters are the lives we’ve touched and the joy that has filled not only our hearts but the hearts of those around us.

That’s why when you find something that makes your body and soul shine, you cannot give up on it, no matter what anyone says.

Don’t let the world define who you become. Don’t let people’s opinions change who and what you love, or how you act. Don’t let harsh words hold you back, or criticisms keep you stagnant. Don’t let the world try to mold you into what it feels is best. Don’t allow yourself to be changed for the wrong reasons.

Don’t let anyone dull your shine.

If there is something you’re passionate about, stop questioning and relying on the guidance of the people around you, and listen to your heart. Too often people try to deter us from our deepest wishes out of jealousy or bitterness. Sometimes even those that love us fear for us, so unintentionally they hold us back.

But if it’s a dream you’ve been dreaming – pursue it. Let go of caution and leave negativity behind. Jump, walk, run, fly forward into the things and people you love.
Open your eyes to the possibilities.

Location: Moulin Rouge, Paris 

Open your ears to wise words. Open your heart to ideas well beyond what you ever imagined. And trust – the known and unknown.

One day you will find something you love. And one day you’ll understand what I mean when I say you have to chase that something. You will have this unexplainable pull to do, to be, to become whatever it is that your heart is telling you. It won’t always make sense, but your fingers will tingle, your heart will jump, your body will suddenly feel so alive, and you will glow with the light that only passion and love can bring.

And when that happens, I hope you remember my warning: Don’t let anyone dull your shine.
Because this is your opportunity to grow, to shift, to make something beautiful in a world that’s filled with so much darkness. This is your life and your future and all that you are meant to be – if you step out of the shadows and let your light be seen.

Sparkle in the sun, dance in the moonlight, set fire to the world with the passion in your heart. You are light – beaming and brilliant.

And as long as you keep chasing what you love, as long as you keep listening to your heart and believing in yourself and your dreams, you can, and will change the world.

Fierce,

I’m breaking up with a simple life. I want a big life, I want greatness and I want to make an impact on people. I just want to admit it even though it feels uncomfortable to admit.

I’m done lessening my desire. Simplicity sounds like something I should want. But, honestly? I want my life to be stunningly, crazily, stupidly complex.
I too have yearned for a simpler existence, a metaphorical cabin in the woods away from the pressures of modern life. I have downsized and minimized both my physical and emotional needs. But, I look at greatness and I wonder if the greatest thinkers and innovators would have amassed their influence had they tampered down their desire, their ambition, their hunger for something larger than simple pleasures.

In my experience, downsizing my ambition, wants, needs, desires has always been a product of fear. The lower my expectations, the less room for disappointment, failure, struggle.
If I can make my wants small enough to achieve them with ease, then I will never suffer.
I will also never strive, achieve, impact.
That’s a dangerous game to play with yourself because what seems virtuous can also seem a lot like making yourself small enough to bow down to fear. While I am against blind consumption, I am also against the idea that we should make our lives as small as possible, to never strive, to stop dreaming of impact and change.

Giving up on high expectations looks an awful lot like giving up on yourself.
Because the truth is that it’s scary to dream. It’s scary to risk disappointment and failure and the possibility of finding out that your dream may not be your future.
But, we all inherently understand that great things usually are born from great risk. If we are given just one life, why would we ever want to make our wants and desires and needs so small? Why would we want to simplify ourselves down when we can live in the messy and beautiful world of complexity?

I understand the desire to simplify and it seems legitimate. It seems like a good idea to stop striving and to be present enough to enjoy what is now and happening and here. I do not advocate that anyone trade on their present misery for a future payoff. But, I don’t know that present gratefulness should ever cause complacency.

Special thanks to Elisabetta Franchi for my whole look 

While I thought simplicity and fewer expectations and less desire would bring me more gratefulness, all it really did was leave me nothing to look forward to, nothing at all ahead in my life to work toward. Life is long and dreams keep you alive and purposeful.

Simplifying my life down to being grateful for just the smallest things improved my state of mind in some ways, but overall brought me a sense that no future joy was available, that if this is the best there is, then why keep going? Why do nothing but maintain?

Yet, we are not built for maintenance. If we were, our world would not have progressed. We would not be innovating or improving. We would simply be existing. This world does not need more mindless consumption, that is for sure. But we do need more hope, more people brazen enough to believe that there is always more impact, more work that needs to be done to bring a better world.

Make your wants small if that’s your desire. But, if it’s out of fear, that’s a slippery slope. Because if you’re trying to fit yourself into a smaller life in order to avoid the risk of trying, then how satisfied can you really be? If the pursuit of simplicity is born from a panicked need for easy, then I would reassess. Is that what you want from your one life? To want less in order to try less?

Fierce,

As you all know, I have a certain inclination towards the rosy and peachy colours, especially when I want to go casual. I prefer to keep the look more towards the warmer tones as I feel it compliments my olive skin colour.
Now, for this look, I chose to wear an oversized vintage salmon pink coat that I got in Shoreditch, London. I chose to pair it with a black top and a pair of rusty copper pants to keep with the warm tonal shades. I also add a simple gold necklace to keep the look well polished and not too over the top.
Now, when it comes to my shoes, I move towards my favorite Joseph boots that I picked up from an online sale. Which keeps the look on point as I really love pointy shoes because I feel they give me that fierce vibe whenever I walk or slay.
Also, I like to choose a location that will keep highlighting my overall look. This, for example, is the backside of the restaurant that I reviewed earlier on.
And Remember, everything in the same family of shades makes everything get a hint of an editorial vibe
Fierce Tip: Always choose the same family shade of tones to keep your whole look well put together and add up some gold accessories to pop the tones and keep the look classy.
