It's been long since I've last worn this oversized thrifted baroque lace blouse which I literally digged up from a giant wood case in a thrift store in Paris. I got it for only 1 euro. Paris has a lot of great vintage thrift stores, and they sell amazing stuff (if you really dig) at dirt cheap prices. I love wearing old pieces and giving them a breath of new life by making them look relevant. In fact, I actually enjoy buying preloved clothing from other people to save the fashion eco-system. I frequently shop at Zouk's Flea & Easy (held every 3 months) to dig through some of the goodies from the closets of people who work in fashion or creative industries.
I have John to thank for making me look like a model. We shot this in 35 minutes in Utown, NUS - amazing right? I never knew my legs could look so long.
