Chaceylove ♡

The first few occasions when I shopped on Chaceylove was for my 21st birthday dress almost 2 years ago. I was searching high and low for the perfect dress for my 21st birthday party and, I saw this ombre maxi dress piece on Chaceylove's preview. Then, I knew instantly that I had to get it for my party! 

However, the piece hadn't arrived even after almost a week (BAHHH normal mail) ): I was panicking cause it was that very weekend which my party was going to be held. I sent in an email to Chaceylove asking about my parcel and I explained about my situation in the email. Acelyn, the owner of CL, replied promptly and very kindly offered to mail another piece to me via complimentary A.M. mail to have it reach in time for my party!!!

Okay so here are some shots from my 21st birthday party (2 years ago hahaha):

I was honestly really touched then, and I was very much impressed with their service. I would sincerely like to thank Acelyn for being such a wonderful person and as a customer, I really did appreciate how she handled the matter for me (': And so, I've been a customer since then!! :D

Recently, Acelyn has very kindly sent me two items from their launch earlier this week! So here's how I've styled them! (: 

On me:
Top: Chaceylove's Sherry Top
Bottom: Aforarcade's Paper Plane Skorts in Sky
Necklace: Handpique's Octavia's Thread statement necklace

I've recently taken a fancy to flow-y tops because they go so well with denim shorts or short bottoms for school or lazy weekends! Chaceylove's Sherry Top takes things up a notch with it's subtle open overlap back design which offers a unique twist on this seemingly simple high neck piece. I can picture this pretty piece with pencil skirts or skinny jeans as well to create a different look from pairing it with shorts (: 

The next piece I chose was an outerwear piece (which I have been wearing almost everyday around school for this week):

On me:
Outerwear: Chaceylove's Chloe Drape Cardi in Creme
Top: Rugs and racks's Floral Babydoll Top 
Shorts: Lovebonito's Elinor Denim Shorts

Who doesn't love an oversized drape cardigan? This piece is made of soft knit which is extremely comfy! I've been wearing this almost everyday to school this week because NIE's classrooms are freezing cold. I bring an outerwear piece to school everyday to keep warm but I find myself grabbing this knit piece each day because of its versatility! AND it comes with pockets (score!). This pretty knit piece comes in a total of 3 colours: Creme (pictured above), black and grey; all of which are colours that can be matched easily with outfits (:

Both pieces were sold out after the launch on Monday, but the good news is: 
Chaceylove has opened backorders for these items! *throws confetti*

Heh, so if you're interested in getting any of these items, do go ahead to secure a piece for yourself! (: Backorder's closing at 2359 tonight (Sunday!).

P.S. Photos were shot by Tzu (hehe, thank you boyfriend for braving the haze with me!)

Have a lovely Sunday ahead everybody! 
Love, Jo

Growing up: hello October.

Now that I've moved on from being an undergraduate and prepping to become a teacher, things have definitely changed since. I'm not sure if I'm ready to take on responsibilities that seem so big; not just career wise, but financial and future planning aspects as well. But then again, who is ever ready for transition into being an adult? We are all just trying to keep afloat in this world.

"It's much easier to not know things sometimes. Because things change, and friends leave. And life doesn't stop for anybody." - The Perks of Being a Wallflower

October's gonna be a trying month (and my birthday month too), but I think  I'll be fine at the end. 

Thankful for awesome friends that I have (both old and new), sisters who can't be more different but care indefinitely for each other, and of course, Tzu, who's always there to nudge me along the way

Float on.
Love, Jo
