I am awed at how the pieces of this look appear to have a strong unified asian statement particularly alluding to the imperial wardrobe of the chinese dynasties. An interesting thing though a lot of these pieces arent even Chinese in origin. The native handmade hat is actually Vietnamese. The ikat printed top which is more Filipino ethnic (a piece lve bought, deconstructed years ago, and left unworn till now), the pants which are japanese designed and the jewelry which is South African. I love this accidental synthesis of contexts simply by just restyling the original function of these garments. Originally I just chose these pieces because of their color harmony and detail. Later on I found out too that I was actually wearing two pieces echoing the same details of the slit(the ikat print shirt and the pants) which is kinda cute actually:)

I cherish these accidental twists not only in styling or wearing clothes but also in life. There are things that happen to you that sometimes doesnt make sense at all but when you add them up along with the rest of the things that do make sense, it all leads to a clearer, better picture of what your life is now. These little accidental twists give us purpose, strengthens our spirits and definitely makes life worth living.

Such an amazing styling combination!!! Lovee the printed shirt and those split,wide leg trousers look incredible!! Love how you have styled this look with those chunky wedged boots,they add an edge to the look but in a subtle not to obvious way!! Love the small detailing of your rustic necklace it really adds to the look. And that hat is such a prominent touch to this look,just so unique!!

Hypedd!! :):):):):):):)

I cant really choose which part I's overall very good. I'm surprised the components together have the chinese imperial look. Seeing all those images really help grasp it more. The necklace is interesting too. :o
