The 400 Co ‘Civil’ Jacket / Vintage Sarong Skirt (worn as dress), Brooch & Bag / Earrings by Leeyong SooTony Bianco Heels

I think we all ought to thank Dries Van Noten for reinventing tartan last spring. His rendition of the checks trend was softer, less Scottish, more slouchy. I first debuted this silk sarong skirt at LMFF last year (now called VAMFF), but being one who likes to manipulate garments, I had to give it another appearance, this time, as a dress. Surprisingly, the strapless sack worked, and not so to ill effect. However, since pregnancy prevented me from doing weights, I’ve long lost toned shoulders and arms. But luckily, a cute little white jacket (complete with a flattering peplum and interesting back contrast) came to my rescue.

Can you believe that this zip up jacket is designed with lawyers in mind? Although I had once contemplated about studying to become one, hours of filing and photocopying as a high school work experience kid in a law firm made me reconsider my career choices. So instead, I married one. And now I even have the pleasure of pretending to be one in this well-tailored jacket.

What did you hope to be when you grew up? You may answer the question.
