Floral & Fauna

I must admit it feels odd but I guess there's a first to everything.

I have always been a fan of floral prints, but truth be told, I never dared to sport them.

With obvious connotations pegged to femininity, it was something that I would eschew.

While in the United States, it brought to light that courage to step out and show your true colours. 

So there we have it; Virgin Post, bold attempt with floral. 

For your viewing pleasure.

Casual Crochet.

My favourite place in Los Angeles: Santa Monica Pier. Complete with ferris wheels, carousels, an amusement park, a jetty where you can peer over the horizon and a beach. Everything about it is amazing! Laughter spills out of every corner, with happy families warming my heart <3 

It was a warm, sunny day so I decided to dress down and wore this amazing pair of crochet shorts. I love the detailing on it! Wore jelly flats to maximize comfort, and matched the ribbons on it with my handy Red Valentino bag (: It can fit so many things, which is why I adore it (and overuse it).

Legion of Lace.

One of my top favorite tops; I love how feminine it feels, and the fit is just right! Also loving the high-waisted zipped maxi skirt and heels which I got at a steal (: Can't argue about how satisfying it feels to get a quality item at a reasonable price, right? 

These photos were taken at the Legion of Honour, in San Francisco. The moment I saw it, I fell in love with it. The structures and rows of pillars took my breath away. It was a museum, of which they showcased mostly paintings. I am not usually one who gets intrigued by museums but my-oh-my were these paintings gorgeous. Some of them told such great stories (which Z kindly explained to me) and I learnt so much from just one trip there. 
Best thing is, general admission is free! But there was a special exhibition when we were there, it's called "Impressionists in the Water" if I didn't recall wrongly. That cost $10 to view the exhibition, but you can decide not to and still enter for free! The place is amazing. Do check it out if you are ever in San Francisco for holiday!

Summer Kaleidoscope.

The moment I saw the prints on this skirt, it was love at first sight! I've recently been having this craze over kaleidoscope-ish designs and this skirt just fit the bill. It's bodycon, which allows you to show off your curves, but the design helps to camouflage those bulges after a full meal HAHAH. 
I also topped it off with a waist-cinching belt in order to add some form of dimension to prevent the look from looking too "flat". Last but not the least, the accessories too (as shown above), which can make or break an outfit! 

I'm also immensely amazed with Stanford College (yes some of the photos were taken there). We took a short road trip out to Palo Alto, which was sooo beautiful. I googled for places of interest and Stanford is one of their must-go-to places there! So we took a drive in, and omg was it magnificent!!! Rows of trees, intricately designed architecture and immaculately maintained buildings. I was intensely amazed by the school. & then I thought, 'if only I were studying here! I'd definitely be more than happy to come to school everyday.' But I guess things aren't always perfect, and I should be content with what I have (: But anyhow, if you are somehow in Palo Alto or traveling here soon, you must visit Stanford!

Studded Leather.

One of our wanderlusts this summer in US: Carmel, CA. 
It was absolutely amazing, nothing short of that. From the quaint shops (several sold extremely intricate items, and I could hardly bring myself to walk out), to cobbled pathways, art and photography shops, blooming flowers in every corner... and so much more. Everywhere we walked & turned, there was beauty. 
When it was time to leave, we could hardly bear to. 
We only took a road trip to Carmel this time, but I wished we stayed the night or weekend there. Just basking around in the Carmel atmosphere was magical enough for me. If I could ever choose a retirement village, this small town would definitely be it. 


This is the beginning of Fashokoh, an outlet where we will be posting inspirations.
We are C and Z, and this is sort of our little baby.
Nothing big, just a small dream we have of sharing with others what we love. 

This is us;

& Fashokoh is where we will be sharing our various journeys with you.
