Orange blazer + drop crotch + tribal jewelry = ?

Going to the Comme des Garcons presentation just made my day. But figuring out what to wear to my first 'real' fashion show was a headache. I did imagine that the attendees would show up in their best CdG getup, and most probably in an authentic one as well.

PARIS 006


PARIS 058

But the pauper yours truly could only be inspired by the label's ubiquitous drop-crotch trousers and hence this was where the Thai fisherman pants came into a role.

PARIS 062

Prior to flying off to Paris I also purchased this Peter Jensen bright orange cropped blazer from MUSA  at a highly reduced price (in which I bought another similar blazer in navy blue) and tried to match the tangerine hue with the ethnic Zara bib necklace and finished off with these socks from Happy Socks in a similar tint. 

PARIS 065
Wee... my chicken legs exposed upon pulling up the baggy pants (covered in tights to withstand the nasty cold winter winds of course!)

Later that evening Arman and I had a stroll in Paris and played tourist in Musée du Louvre, where this slightly odd photograph was taken, in the freezing cold winter night, no less...

PARIS 052
I was wearing Peter Jensen blazer, vintage eBay brown blazer (top picture), Topman shirt underneath, Zara bib necklace, silver bangles from Sungei Wang, Thai fisherman pants with cheap Giant tights underneath, Jil Sander shoes, Happy Socks socks

Never mind that people in the Parisian metro was staring at my rather outlandish outfit but bearing in mind that it was fashion week I think they would probably have considered it quite normal haha!

Anonymous- I get what you are saying. But bashing people behind anonymity is downright irresponsible.

Ajax Shams- thanks for the honest comment. I was questioning myself if I could pull the orange off. But it was a good experimentation all in the name of fun. But honestly the part where people in the metro gawking at me is the less fun one ...

Kau ingat kau pakai cantik? Buruk tau! Macam tino! Tino lagi cantik! Tenuk jadi eh. Malam ni suruh mak belikan cermin letak kat bilik. Malu dik jalan-jalan macam ni. Budak2 tengok ingat badut. Ingat pesanan ni.

SERIOUSLY?!
Who is this anonymous person?
Such a rude person. You don't have to give bad remarks about people if u urself is very scared to tell people who u r.
Bad vibes, shooh!

Stay put bro...
that uneducated comment is not worth anything at all...
