DARK SIDE

Return with darkness this time. Been talking about doing a black on black look for awhile and this is my version today *finally. A combination of a long black and handkerchief hemline wrap with some silver/transparent accessories to compliment.

Aside from the look, I have a question to all bloggers/friends. As a blogger, I often struggle to find the right setting/background for the look I desire. Especially in Singapore where everywhere looks so green and tropical! It can get on my nerves on certain days. Do you have such frustrations too? Thankfully, this time I was lucky to find myself this minimalistic showroom nearby my house. I wish I’m THIS lucky everytime. Have a good weekend & all the best in whatever you are doing, my beautiful friends.

In case you're wondering about the tattoo. It is not permanent. I was supporting a design community called the Dottinghill. They created a fb space for designers to post their own creations and if it generates many likes, it will be printed for sale. This wolf was my favorite among others.


Below are some clutches you can look up if you feel inspired to get something similar =)

I love this look, the accessories are perfect! I also have a lot of problems with finding good locations for outfits, that's why I usually end up being lazy and take pictures indoors ^^

moiminnie said...

I can totally relate to the trouble of finding that perfect background! I like it to coordinate nicely with what I'm wearing but I'm not always so lucky to find that perfect spot. Sometimes I just say fuck it and go with whatever I can find haha! You look beautiful and very chic in all black. x

Maiken said...

oh I like that wolf a lot! reminds me of my tiger :P but when it comes to backgrounds then nope, no such problems since pretty much every backdrop can be interesting and special. or maybe I just don't think about stuff like that very often.. my backdrops are quite random, to be honest.

Totes understand regarding a location for photos. At times I wish I'd have a car so I can drive to a lovely countryside or something for the photos.

Your location always looks so fab though! And you look absolutely stunning!

I am in love with your style. And the accessories are always perfect.

Your accessories are EVERYTHING!!! LOVE them! The black on black look is sleek and sophisticated. I struggle with finding the time to post for pictures, so finding the right setting is the least of my concerns. I wish I could switch it up every now and then but it just doesn't work out because I'm usually so busy.

JustJaslin said...

Hi Issa!

I remembered seeing you at the H&M FaceHunter's book launch event! I wanted to say hi but for a moment I couldn't remember what was your name T__T It was nice to see you in person.

Anyway I can totally relate to the selection of outdoor location. Most of my pictures end up with lots of greenery and it just frustrates me lol. Do you mind sharing where this place is? Btw I love your monochrome outfit and the silver accessories and clutch! Looking very chic ;)

many kisses
♡ Jaslin from www.justjaslin.com

Jo said...

Issa I always struggle with finding the right location! Sometimes I get lazy and just use the same places over and over again, but I'm trying to make an effort and take the time to find the right place for each outfit. Love your background and look in this post! Everything goes together seamlessly. And I love the little wolf tattoo, even if it's not permanent :).
