This week’s Girl of the Week, KRISTY, was born and raised in Indonesia and is currently living in Toronto. She is currently working as an Assistant Accountant at a Software/IT company while studying for a Fashion Merchandising Certificate (love it!). I actually “met” Kristy through her lovely fashion/style blog Monochromachic and we have been fashion/blog friends ever since (is that corny? because I don’t care! haha). Ladies, meet Kristy.
I’m wearing: Forever 21 lace top & satchel, Urban Outfitters skirt, vintage belt and Jeffrey Campbell Mariel wedges.
My personal style is: Comfortable, modern and elegant. Olivia Palermo and Miroslava Duma are my style goddesses.
Beauty must-haves: A good concealer, mattifying powder, eyebrow pencil, black gel liner, peach blush and a lip balm. For face skincare, I like to use Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque once a week and Biore pore strips once every two weeks.
First memorable fashion purchase: Oh gosh, it’s got to be my Coach bag from years ago. It was my first designer item (though I no longer have it) that I purchased with the money I earned from my blood, sweat, and tears. If I could turn back the time, I would tell the â€œyoungerâ€ me to save up some more and buy a Chanel instead.
Most recent purchase: Jeffrey Campbell Oh Yes wedges. This is the best decision I’ve ever made in my fashion life! I hope the make them in more colors (currently only black and leopard). I highly recommend these shoes!
Favourite local hot-spots (in Toronto): Korea town (I’m a self-proclaimed Korean food addict), St. Lawrence Market for fresh fruits and weekend brunches, and Eaton Centre (H&M, ZARA, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters all in one place!)
Fall essentials: Trench coat, parka jacket, patterned tights, silky blouses, wedges, and some Fall color nail polishes that I have yet to buy!
Three items to save from a fire: Myself (lol), passport and wallet.
Favourite pair of shoes: Hands down, my Jeffrey Campbell Oh Yes (sorry to my other shoes!)
My go-to look: Loose t-shirt/tunic, skinny jeans/jeggings, cardigan/jacket, a statement necklace, Jeffrey Campbell Oh Yes wedges (oh yes, Iâ€™m obsessed with them!)
You can most likely find me: Online, checking other people’s blogs or window-shopping.
Guilty pleasures: Splitting my split ends and taking a nap after a big meal!
