Extra long sleeve

Hello lovelies. Hope your Monday went well!

I was just spending the whole day writing my dissertation and I took a break. During the breakI wrote this post. The irony of it 😉 In this OOTD post I am featuring my first ever button up shirt I got hold of since I moved to London. It is not just any button up shirt, the sleeve run long enough to almost cover another person’s palm. Why a petite girl like me need an extra long sleeve shirt? Well why not. I was feeling adventurous. I love my clothes to have some sort of eccentric element to it. Perhaps that part of my personal style.

 

IMG_4663.JPGIMG_4661.JPGI laid my eyes onthis shirt on exhibit.com and instantly fell in love with it. Exhibit is a Singapore based womenswear label founded by non other than the famous and beautiful Yoyo Cao. If you don’t follow her already on Instagram (yoyokulala), do go check her out. She has the most amazing feed. Among the many cleverly tailored pieces in the collection, this extra long sleeve shirt spoke the most to me. The clean-cut definitely adds to the luxe basics feel to the shirt. And the buttons that ran along the entire sleeve. That sold it to me. The quality of the material and stitching made me a happy buyer. Although the sleeve runs long, it can be folded up to avoid any mishaps during meal time. Imagine me digging in my food with my sleeve all over the place like a child. Hmmm not a good sight.

This shirt was well-worn during my Belgium trip and of course in Belgium as in many countries you go to the art gallery. As you can see I wore this top with jeans and did a little half tuck on half of the shirt… look at the photo, I don’t think I just made sense. I felt like an artist myself. 😉

Why the dessert photos all of a sudden?? It’s Belgium! Desserts are heaven there.

On a last note, it makes me happy seeing a label from Asia do so well. I am truly hoping to dig up more exquisite Asian label and support the emerging designers because good quality clothes shouldn’t go unnoticed.
Have a nice evening guys. Those who had Monday blues, hope this post made you smile. I hope at least the desserts did the trick. Cheers!
