My eyes were attracted by Amanda, when I was on a bridal make-up hairstyling work in London last May, as she’s one of the fashionably edgy guests of our bride G. I can see her confidence of who she is and of what she loves.
1. How do you describe your style, as I seemed to see your 2 extremes? How do you incorporate into your role as a young architect?
I’d try many things and varieties. For weekends, I love vintage pieces which are happily colorful and patterned. For work, I go for timeless basics and structured silhouette in neutral colors like black/white/grey/navy, especially if I’m meeting client and would like to look not too young in the field.
2. Where do you normally shop for outfits? Any favorite shop?
For vintage, I love to hunt at Beatniks at Peel Street, at Brick Lane in London and some vintage shops in Korea. For basics, I go to COS and even go to Uniqlo for men’s knit.
I like the jeans from Topshop as its “Joni” cutting of the pant ends is just perfect to me.
Of course, how can I miss my favorite shop EDIT (This is the cool niche fashion select shop owned by our bride G whose wedding had connected Amanda and me).

3. How do you carry vintage dress or personalize it?
I love contrast- like wearing a parka military jacket with vintage dress. I always bring vintage dresses for travel – as they can be conveniently rolled-up in the luggage and their colors are happy for travelling.
4. Which outfit cutting or color is your favorite?
I’ve already counted my short height as my identity (Caroline: I just love her sense of humor and embracing who she is). I used to choose dress with a shorter cutting in front as to conceal my short height and not to expose my arms/legs so that I look slimmer, but I now don’t care much and just wear what I love. (This is the twinkling confidence I saw in her eyes!)
I enjoy any color, but specially like navy.
5. Any recent best buy?
My navy folder clutch bag of Chanel, with quilt lining & floral inner lining.
My Stubbs and Wooten loafers.
