I brought along a few fashion magazines to calm my nerves before the driving test today. And I passed!!!! Must be the awesome fashionness.

I passed in time for the F1 night race in Singapore, LOL. Sarah and boyfriend are going for the race – what are you gonna wear?!?!?!

So while browsing, I discovered this look in Elle Singapore

Drop crotch, check
Booties, check (okay so a bit old, but still)
Miu Miu reawakening sportswear, check
Leather jacket, check
Fur collar, check

That’s kinda like all the season’s coolest trends rolled into one right? It’s cool, but it’s not the kind that makes you sit up and go “Ooooohhhhh”, at least until you find at that those friggin cool knit drop-crotch pants are actually a TURTLENECK DISGUISED?

I think I might drop by Sino London to try that top on as pants. Well if they fit nicely on the top too why not!

Kudos to the stylist, Tabitha. She always has this bohemian, anything goes vibe about her styling. And really, anything goes for her! She puts the strangest pieces together and they work. Sarah and I are closet fans.

I tried it on with a long-sleeved something from my cupboard

Top: Black oversized batwing hoodie with tie from Hansel
Top/Pants: Grey long sleeved boat neck batwing wool top with drawstring from Taiwan
Shoes: Dove grey T-bars from Bianca

I would actually wear these “pants” out if not for the ginormous hOle at the back because of the grey top isn’t exactly long enough to be hoisted up from the front or back. I just pulled and tucked the drawstrings in at the back for the sake of this photo haha.

And I love my new shoes from Bianca because I’ve been wanting to get T-bars for the longest time but I just never got to it! (I was under the influences that the high bar near my ankle would make my calves, or my legs in general look shorter and stumpier than they already are. But I think these look quite… okay)

If you were wondering why I had this Fall Out Boy song title as my post title.. The drop crotch just reminds me of it. I actually don’t like FOB, but I love this video (not the official music video) of this song. Please go watch it!

EGADS!!! drop crotch pants! 0.0 😐 they still scare me. but i wouldn’t have guessed that it is a top. (reminds me of a calvin and hobbes comic where calvin wore his shirt as pants)
But i must say that the styling was really well done.
im a (not so secret) Tabitha fan!!! (:

Comment by issa

so the neck has been stuffed down the front of her crotch eh? BRILLIANT! That is some winning styling if I’ve ever seen it.

By the way I LOVE your haircut. There are signs all around me telling me to go short . . . but I don’t think I can do it.

THOSE PANTS ARE A TOP?! That’s fantastic. I like your take on the outfit even better than the original. Thanks for checking out my blog! I recently stumbled across yours, and I think it’s great.

Oh, and about my hair… It used to be shorter than chin-length, but I’m planning on growing it out. Sometimes it dries a bit too poufy for my taste, but I generally just comb it and go!

Comment by Nicole

[…] making a reappearance. There’s a great example of how to make this look work in the website WOTTONCOOL, from which I borrowed the image above. I especially love that the writer used a dolman sleeve top, […]
