Little Black Laces


Little Black Laces

"The way you swing when I spin and dance.."

Reflecting on the 21st year of living and breathing on earth and perhaps the power of morning thoughts I always admire hence the mind productivity and aspiration lead the way : A critical essay (or please, a blogpost) on how I see life as a newly turned adult, social media and Snapchat.


Last week, I just turned 21 (on November, 12th). Some sees it as celebration of productive age. They also said 'do what you want to do because 20s is when you make mistakes', Why? Perhaps elderly people want us to experience mistakes, break-downs, etc by ourselves. There is no point of the telling us -- the youngster-- what's waiting on the other side.
I tried to critic myself as often as possible. stand tall on what I believe, and just do it (slaying Nike's motto). If you question what I'll be doing in the next 5 years... don't. (I even have no idea on what I'll be eating tomorrow). Or if you have ever asked "Are you going to marry your long-term boyfriend in the next couple years?"... I don't even know. I just kinda let the river flows ad focus on what's right on my eyes. Pretty, please? There are (definitely) so many things I want to try, places I want to visit, and many more. The thing is, I'll still write blogposts and keep this site alive until the time I decide to get unplugged.....(not very soon, though.)

Stained my dress a bit :/


Let's move on.

In this fast-paced internet generation, we all know how popular Instagram is when it took over Twitter. (I am an Instagram addict, myself.)
Seeing how creative people can get or how far someone takes you on their travel journeys is amazing. Instagram is a place where I can snap oceans multiple times and posted it over and over again on different angles or even the ones that I took from different spots. 
I checked Facebook for news update (or funny viral videos), opened Instagram to post photos or simply scrolled down creative (mostly inspiring, because I tend to follow inspiring accounts). But nowadays, some creatives in the industry had stepped up their games and move over to Snapchat; an app that allows you to snap a picture and had your caption straight up, with extra emojis, rainbow vomit, etc. I used to have a snapchat account back then when it was not as famous compared to now. I wasn't interested either. I feel like constantly checking on my phone had taken half of my time in a day and it's pretty consuming. I did not see myself constantly updating on Snapchat eventhough many luxury brands did runways on Snapchat (eg: Burberry, Louis Vuitton) or digital influencers. And one thing I want to point out is.. range of privacy on daily basis could have been just not as private as you wished it is when it comes to addiction. Disagree?

wearing :
Sunmold Dress - Leonyevelyn-Clothing

Yup, all three thing have explained the current post. I have been away for roughly two weeks, prior to blogging schedule, study, birthday--also, friend's birthday events--I finally had a time to sit down and free the mind on this white canvas. Delivering my wardrobe rotate picks, the dress made by Leonyevelyn Clothing that I wore only once (I didn't even understand why I don't wear this often), the navy strips wedges I fancy a lot because I failed myself a lot trying hard on stilettos and a little hair update? My short hair has grown a bit longer and the dark brown colour I had left is now fading... Welcoming the original black hair back! This dress is purrrfect for the summer heat, just do not forget your sunscreen :) xxLenny!

It's the time of the year again. It's November again. It's the turn of Scorpio takes over again; where astrology turns its focus on explaining how mysterious, sexy, dark or interesting this sign is. Well, I am not an astrology expert, I just love reading star sign column on magazine every month to find out what is going to happen to my sign. I am a scorpion... but I guess 'sexy' is not a perfect entitled, at least not now.  


I am munching two bars of Uncle Toby's Choco Chip muesli bar already while writing this article, about to crush into the third one with Disclosure ft. Lorde - Magnets on repeat (I'm obsessed with how sexy Lorde is in the music video), I hope you don't mind with me babbling here. When it hits November, I am a little scared yet intrigued. It's my birthday month, and this year I am turning 21-- the "official adulthood" birthday as how Australian celebrates it. I still have visions in my head that yet accomplish. They said it is not a one night dreams come true but you need to work hard for another day, another month and it even take years to build everything. Complicated, yet?  
Let's not discuss about my +1 age. These photos below were taken yesterday at the newly opened Barangaroo Reserved Park. Enjoy. xLenny.

Semi Formal on Summer


 #HaleBobforRockmans Summer 2015

wearing : 

Sleeveless White Top - Hale Bob for Rockmans 
Split Skirt - Chic-a-Booti Fashion 
Navy Strips Wedges - ZARA 
Tribal Clutch - Amber Rose by Rockmans 
Lips - Russian Roulettes by Topshop

You'd probably remember the launch of #HaleBobforRockmans on mid September (If you don't, here is the recap). The collection has hit Rockmans stores, all over New South Wales. I am filled with excitement to share this with you. How can I not be so excited? The designer of Hale Bob, Daniel, brought his strong tropical and tribal prints, throwing colours on maxi dresses, maxi skirts, eye-catchy prints on the offered Tops which are beach perfect, semi formal or even formal looks matched, or 'a day in the city' friendly. 

On this opportunity, I bring the semi formal look to the table. 
A black and white outfit with a pop of tribal clutch and strips navy wedges by the water.
This white sleeveless top from #HaleBobforRockmans is not as plain as you thought it is. Just pay some attention on its flower textured embroidered, the cut-outs and its V-neck. Heat-endure just so perfect for any summer days. I am also obsessed with split skirts. The split on the skirt gives you the extraordinary compliment from any other skirts :) This outfit is very recommended if you have any upcoming parties, your friends' semi formal themed party, or any events that require semi-formal outfit. Don't forget to visit Rockmans instore or online to find out more about the collection. Happy mix-matching! :) x Lenny

wearing : 
Denim Jacket - Chic Nova 
Top - Flea Market 
Skirt - ZARA 

Following my instagram post about this outfit, yes, this is such a kewl (read : cool) jacket on the internet. I was actually looking at another item and this denim jacket came along on the website, without any doubts, I just clicked "order". On the right sleeve, it is written "Say No To The Wrong Deal" and on its left sleeve "Wrong Deal". You can never have enough denim jacket, can't you? :p
The top that I wore was another best buy from flea market. I got it with a very cool price, AU$ 20. Isn't it crazy? I don't know why I am very obsessed with this kinda of top, where the front length is shorter than its back and I'm able to either tuck the front part in or leave it hanging like this. Its fabric is also eye-catching, where it has this crop-top tank on the outer part. Pairing it up with my usual black ankle boots and my houndstooth mini skirt. I am ready to rock the street on "War Street War".... wait, kidding. -Lenny 








It's over ~

Spring Inspired Outfit



wearing : 
Loosen White Top - Rockmans
Denim Short - Rohtela 
Sneakers - Converse

On this outfit post, I am wearing this super comfortable long-sleeved white bohemian styled top from Rockmans that I wore to Rockmans x Hale Bob Launch and I thought it is really perfect for such unstable weather which goes hot then cold then hot again. It still gives you that breeze and "space" to breathe and definitely perfect for spring and summer. Not to forget, loosen white top is so IN right now (must-have item!). Ever since they did not have a size 8, I chose the smallest out of all which happened to be 10 and it still looks perfect.I paired it up with the denim shorts with a little of white element in the front and a line of flower at the back of the jeans, which was also sent to me in a complete bigger size than I normally wear, so I decide to put my belt on (I got it from KMart). Photo was taken at Westfield Sydney (Pitt Street Mall) where I stood right people were passing by and giving those stares but you gotta do what you're doing anyway. I hope you found your spring/summer inspired from this post. Talk to me on Instagram, Twitter (links are right on your right corner) or simply comment down below what you think! :)  -Lenny

Thrift Shop and Matcha


I apologize for postponing this post that supposed to be up last Sunday. But here I am updating latest venture to Glebe Market for thrift shopping.  
Earlier the day, I went to Cafe Cre Asion to fulfill my Green-Tea-Lover desire on its famous Green Tea Chocolate Fondant. The presentation of the cake itself is simple and sophisticated, it tasted so so so so good. I had green tea latte, as always, at that visit. Over all, Cafe Cre Asion is absolutely recommended for y'all sweet tooth out there. Luckily I did not get drunk of consuming too much green tea, even I wouldn't mind at all.






This was my first time going to the Flea Market. Glebe Market only opens on Saturday from 10 A.M. until 4 p.m. It does not only sell secondhand collections but also the brand new clothes, bags, and cute accessories, and it has so many food stalls. I set the limit for myself before purchasing, that I would only buy any secondhand item under $25 (twenty-five dollars). I was full on excitement to see what I can find and how deep is my vintage soul. Not disappointing that I actually went home with four items; 2 dresses, 1 Jacket, 1 Top and I spent $60 in total. If you were there with me, you would've seen my smiley face all the way home and my crazy excitement. (PS : There weren't as many picture of the stalls as what it is at the market, because some owners would prefer "no picture taken" of their stall
