Life Lately: January 2015

Life Lately: January 2015 | Ses Rêveries

Insufferable weather aside, my January was fantastic; filled with good food and small wins.


VIBES: Haunt Couture

Valentino Haute Couture by Deborah Turbeville in Vogue Italia September 2012 Haute Couture Supplement | Ses Rêveries

In a bid to keep the momentum from the Paris couture shows alive (new TV show suggestion: Elie Saab, the Couture Slayer), I went trolling for a few couture editorials in a darker, broodier mood with smatterings of fantastical elements to counter the rather potent lighthearted femininity of this season's designs. Of course, such a compilation would be incomplete without Deborah Turbeville, who shot the Valentino Haute Couture A/W 2013 edit above for Vogue Italia's September 2012 Haute Couture Supplement.


WISHLIST: BCBG Max Azria Pre-Fall 2015

BCBG Max Azria Pre-Fall 2015

I'm not happy I missed the Screen Actors Guild Awards (aka another opportunity to shop for my inner Dorothy Dandridge) thanks to a weekend trip to the internet-less countryside for an interview. So I thought I'd finally publish this wishlist set I made on Polyvore a little while ago, with cheaper alternatives for some of my favourite looks from the BCBG Max Azria Pre-Fall 2015 collection - details after the jump.


Vibes / LONG HAIR, SHORT HAIR (4/52)

Chanel Iman by Thomas Schenk for Allure September 2010 | Ses Rêveries

Currently pondering what to do with my hair... Grow it out, or relax it and get a pixie cut? Case study: Chanel Iman and her goes-so-strong weave game.


#TBT: Essence X Jaywon - Facebook Love

Audiophiles, keep moving; nothing to see here.

LOST FILES #012 | Ses Rêveries

For a girl who hates flowers, real or otherwise, I sure do take a lot of pictures of them.


Vibes / LAZY DAYS (3/52)

Anna Williams for the Voracity Fall 2012 | Ses Rêveries

With exams and applications and interviews, I've been dreaming of lazy days long since forgotten. Is it too soon to start counting down the days until the Easter break?


Favourites: Acne Studios Pre-Fall 2015


Jonny Johansson, your offbeat minimalist pieces never cease to amaze me. I adore the touches of lilac, gorgeous patterns and liberating androgyny.


Favourites: Akris Pre-Fall 2015


And it's another win for the minimalists as, unsurprisingly, neutrals will undoubtedly be the headlining trend next season. I'm all about those matching separates, masculine shapes and mouth-watering footwear though...


How I Style: The Oscars 2015

How I Style: The 2015 Oscars | Ses Rêveries

I was particularly disappointed by the nominations this year.


Playlist / January 2015

It's my second day back at uni (too work, much stress) so I gave myself time off to create a playlist for January. It's not a study playlist, mind you; it's just the brilliant, mellow tunes that spring to mind when I think of January (and a few obvious bonus tracks)... But let it be known, I am not a "Janxiety" crusader. To the people who try to taint the awesomeness of my birth month with their self-inflicted 'January blues' nonsense, I say, "boo, you whore."

I may make an unofficial study playlist for May though, when my procrastination levels the stakes are even higher...

Listen to the playlist on Sound Cloud here* / feel free to follow my Sound Cloud here


Favourites: The Row Pre-Fall 2015


Can you tell I'm already shopping for next, next season? Just call me Sharpay, because I want it all. I mean, I've always been fans of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, but they just take the fan-girl status five notches up with their work for The Row every time.



Classical: Jacqueline du Pré

Classical: Jacqueline du Pré | Ses Rêveries

I watched Hilary & Jackie over the holidays during one of those it's-2am-and-I-can't-sleep-so-I'll-just-watch-whatever's-on-before-teleshopping-starts slumps, and absolutely fell in love with little Jackie because of how animated she got when she played. Whenever I mastered a piece, I did exactly the same back when I played the piano, so it was like finding my cellist spirit animal. I just had to find and share videos of the real Jacqueline after that.

Favourites: Tibi Pre-Fall 2015

I'm all for ugly shoes but those slippers and laced flats aren't doing it for me. However, with the hints of androgyny, pinstripes and leather, and those I-feel-cozy-from-just-looking-at-them ccashmere knits in the Tibi pre-fall 2015 collection, I am more than willing to forgive Amy Smilovic for those transgressions.


Favourites: Thom Browne Pre-Fall 2015


Masculine tailoring, monochrome suits, patterned tights and gorgeous tweed... Thom Browne's pre-fall 2015 collection appears to have been made for me. Thanks, Thom!



Editorial: The Big 2-0

Editorial: The Big 2-0 | Ses Rêveries

It's been unusually chipper on the blog this year, I'm worrying myself. Expect more cheddar cheese in this post, but only because it's my birthday. We'll be back to the witticisms and mild sardonism tomorrow.

Editorial Special: 'Best Performances' by Tim Walker for W

Emma Stone in 'Best Performances' by Tim Walker for W | Ses Rêveries

I've literally been obsessed with the February issue of W Magazine since I caught wind of Amy Adams' screen test on my YouTube subs feed and proceeded to wait patiently for the rest - if you haven't seen them yet, uh, where have you been?! Catch up here!


Quote: Birthday Blues w/ Henry L. Mencken

Birthday Blues w/ Henry L. Mencken | Ses Rêveries

My dear Mr Mencken, you just get me.

Quick update: I've been on a major inspiration trip since the arrival of JARVIS (no more grainy cellphone photos!), so I ended up coming up with a few ideas for the blog, like these quote cards for example, that I'm so excited to be working on. Some of the posts are actually drafts I wrote over a year ago! I can't wait to share them all with you lot. As a result, I've had to switch up the editorial calendar quite a bit. So if you're wondering where this week's Life Lately is, I promise I didn't forget this time. You may have noticed me feebly attempt to give Instagram more action these past few months (feel free to follow me via the link below). In a bid to pick up the pace, I've decided to move the regular photo updates there and give the Life Lately series a face lift I'm 100% certain you'll prefer - among others.

For all the updates, check out the handy new Features tab above, which I'll be updating with any new series as soon as they go live. Organization game on fleek, or nah? Could my mature-and-responsible-twenty-year-old senses be tingling already?!

Now... to force myself to finally log in and check my blog e-mails (my stomach churns at the thought of how many I've left unattended, I feel like such a terrible person but uni is haaarrrddd :( any volunteer PAs in the building? I pay in Haribos and student discounts).


How I Style: Golden Globes 2015

How I Style: Golden Globes 2015 | Ses Rêveries

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards 2015, I've dreamt of this moment for several years...



LOST FILES #011 | Ses Rêveries

I can't take credit for the editing; the 'Auto Enhance' feature on Google+ is seriously giving me life.


Quote: Voltaire + Notes on #JeSuisCharlie

Quote: Voltaire | Ses Rêveries

My thoughts are with the families of the dozen Charlie Hebdo shooting victims. However, I can't help but feel an overwhelming sense of guilt.


#TBT: Ray Charles - I Got A Woman

Ray Charles - I Got A Woman | Ses Rêveries

I watched Ray over Christmas and was reminded of just how easy it is for me to completely and utterly forget about a song until I hear it again. My memory is just mush.


Journal: I'm In Love with the Cocoa | "Brookies"

My NYE w/ Lily Pebbles' Brookies | Ses Rêveries

Hard to believe, but I actually did think O.T. Genasis was literally declaring his love of baking in this brave new world where, thanks to all the hashtag activism we've experienced in the past few years, he felt he finally could without fear of mockery from his rapper peers... I also thought the guy was mentally challenged with those lyrics, so I guess I was wrong on all counts.



LOST FILES #010 | Ses Rêveries

Shutter speed settings and I were not moving in tandem that day.
