Meeting Sandra

While scoping out the scene at London Fashion Weekend, I stumbled aimlessly into the West Wing, entering the same room that my friend/Milliner designer Mich Dulce set up her stall for LFW. In the corner stood the charismatic Sandra from 5 Inch and Up, who took a quick glance at my outfit and complimented me on my Acne Avalanche boots before I even had chance to notice who that phrase from (of course Sandra could smell Acne leather from a mile away). Despite being "5 inch and up", she is oh so down-to-earth. After the inevitable sartorial and blogger-to-blogger banter, I promptly tried on some pieces from her collection in collaboration with Nelly. The Nordic-effortless elements of the garments were cut in a way that fitted me like a glove. Perhaps it was her application of masculine cuts with feminine shapes that did the trick, but whatever it is it worked. So let's just say how could I not support one of my favorite UK bloggers... I envisioned this outfit post the moment Sandra tweeted our "twins" pic. #BlogWorthy

    1. Thanks Reinhardt, I'm glad you don't see Bryan in me, I mean I get why people would associate that but for those who really really understand fashion/style, you wouldn't think I'm Bryan. Or else every Asian guy who likes fashion is BryanBoy.. But I'm not offended by that lol
